Top NCAAB Betting Picks of the Week (January 23rd, 2023)

Xavier Musketeers vs. UConn Huskies

  • When: Wednesday, January 25th, 2023. 6:30pm EST.
  • Where: Gampel Pavilion, Storrs, CT

In the last matchup between these two, Sean Miller’s Xavier squad dusted UConn 83-73. The game took place in Cincinnati.

A change of venue makes the Huskies the team to beat. UConn suffered a rough patch, losing 3 straight and 5-of-10, but in their last, Connecticut rolled against an overmatched Butler side. The victory was a signal the Huskies are back to their SU winning and ATS covering ways.

NCAAB Betting Pick: UConn Huskies

Purdue Boilermakers vs. Michigan Wolverines

  • When: Thursday, January 26th, 2023. 9:00pm EST.
  • Where: Crisler Center, Ann Arbor, MI

Because they only have one loss, Purdue has once against climbed to the top of the AP Poll. The Boilermakers are number one in the nation.

But Purdue is not a good spread covering team. Purdue is 8-11-1 ATS. Michigan is 9-10 ATS. Recent form, 1-4 against the spread in their last 5, suggests the Wolverines struggle. But Michigan’s Hunter Dickinson can counter Purdue’s Zach Edy. Michigan gets the ATS win.

NCAAB Betting Pick: Michigan Wolverines

Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Baylor Bears

  • When: Saturday, January 28th, 2023. 4:00pm EST.
  • Where: Ferrell Center, Waco, TX

13-6 Arkansas may have turned around their form in the last. The Razorbacks beat Ole Miss 69- 57 and covered as a -9.5 home favorite.

However, Baylor has been on a tear. The Bears are 4-0-1 in their last 5. The Bears appear to be picking it up. Expect Baylor to play great ball from now until the end of the season. The Bears win and cover.

NCAAB Betting Pick: Baylor Bears

Arizona Wildcats vs. Washington Huskies

  • When: Saturday, January 28th, 2023. 5:30pm EST.
  • Where: Alaska Airlines Arena, Seattle, WA

In the first head-to-head this season, the Washington Huskies played Arizona tough. Washington lost, but they lost by 3 points in a tight 70-67 game.

The contest happened a while ago, which is why heading into this game, Arizona is the pick to win and cover. The Wildcats beat rival UCLA 58-52 over the weekend. Arizona gets the nod.

NCAAB Betting Pick: Arizona Wildcats

Texas Longhorns vs. Tennessee Volunteers

  • When: Saturday, January 28th, 2023. 6:00pm EST.
  • Where: Thompson-Boling Arena, Knoxville, TN

Texas has responded much better than most other teams would after losing their head coach. But although the Longhorns have been winning games, they haven’t been covering games.

Tennessee is 2-0 ATS in their last couple of games. Not only that, but the Vols have dominated their last two rivals, beating Mississippi State 70-59 and dusting LSU 77-56. The Volunteers win and cover.

NCAAB Betting Pick: Tennessee Volunteers

Kansas Jayhawks vs. Kentucky Wildcats

  • When: Saturday, January 28th, 2023. 7:00pm EST.
  • Where: Rupp Arena, Lexington, KY

Kansas versus Kentucky is a matchup between a pair of teams going in opposite directions. The Jayhawks have lost 2 straight and are 0-5 ATS in their last 5.

The Kentucky Wildcats have won 3 straight up and against the spread. If this game were in Lawrence, Rock Chalk might be the pick. But in Lexington and against a hot Kentucky side, Kansas is a play against.

NCAAB Betting Pick: Kentucky Wildcats
