@KeepTheJuice21'S CBB Best Bets - 2/23

Rutgers (16-10) vs. Michigan (14-11)

It’s never too late to admit you were wrong and I was wrong about Rutgers. They finally had their streak snapped at Purdue on Sunday but in the past few weeks they’ve moved up 5 th in the Big Ten and made a good case for the tournament. Michigan is in a tailspin, with Juwan Howard suspended through the season and facing Illinois, Michigan State, Iowa and Ohio State following tonight.

Here’s why I love Rutgers to cover: 1. Michigan has serious potential to overlook this game with a tough schedule ahead. 2. The Juwan Howard situation leaves them not only without a head coach, but with a huge distraction from the actual game. 3. Rutgers proved themselves on the road against the very Wisconsin team that derailed Michigan. 4. Rutgers has only lost one game in the last 3 weeks and it was to the #5 team in the country. 5. Michigan does not have a Zach Edey or a Jaden Ivey. Ride the Knights.

Best Bet


RUTGERS +5 @ -115

It seems to me like this line is reflecting a little bit of history. Coach K and Tony Bennett have had some crazy matchups in the past and there’s some extra emotion knowing this could be the last.

Virginia pulled off the upset two weeks ago in Durham but the Blue Devils should be able to reverse the result if they can limit their turnovers. Simply put, Duke needs this win for the tournament resume – two losses to an unranked team could push them out of a 2 seed. They are the better team and they should show it tonight in a resounding win.

DUKE -5 @ -110
