Michigan -2 at Wisconsin
Let’s get things straight, Michigan should be the #1 team in the country. They come into this game against Wisconsin 17-0 and 9-8 ATS. When I see Michigan with a favorable line this season I tend to hammer it. By no means am I saying Wisconsin is bad, typically road conference games are tough. But 2 points is a dream line for Michigan bettors. Michigan has covered in 4 of their last 5 games and they are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against Wisconsin. The Badgers are on a bit of a bad roll through their last 5 games losing 4 of them, with ugly losses to Minnesota and Wisconsin. Michigan is loaded with talent and playing at a high level. Trust the trio of guards, Simpson, Matthew, and Poole to get the win and cover for Michigan.

Texas Tech -3.5 at Baylor (-110) or Over 128
The best bet in the game might be the over. If you find total set anywhere at or under 130 I would just on it. Since Baylor has entered league play, all 4 games the over has hit. The only worry in this spot is the stifling defense Texas Tech plays. Holding their opponents to just 54 points per game. But both Texas Tech and Baylor average over 70 points per game, while Baylor has been known to be generous on the defensive end. The homefield advantage should help Baylor score at little more than they would if this were a road game. Texas Tech has been subpar covering the spread this year, coming in the game at 6-10-1 ATS. But, 3.5 is a generous spread for the Red Raiders who are 15-2 this season and 4-1 on the road. I would recommend buying the hook here for insurance. I fully expect sophomore guard Jarrett Culver to lead the Red Raiders to a win and cover.
