No top 25 teams face another top 25 team, but the games should all be great no matter what. Let’s break down the odds from BetOnline and take a look at our predictions for the games.

Here are all the games and odds for today’s Men’s NCAA basketball top 25 games.

Starting our day off at noon (pacific time) is Syracuse vs. Duke and Butler vs. Providence. Duke is expected to bounce back from their tough loss to North Carolina.

11th ranked Providence is also expected to beat Butler by double digits. TCU vs. Texas tip off after those two games, with 22nd ranked Texas expected to squeak by TCU by 6 points.

We have a Big Ten 2nd round matchup between Northwestern and 24th ranked Iowa.

The 2nd ranked team in the country in Arizona is set to take on the Stanford Cardinals in the Pac-12 quarterfinals.

6th ranked Kansas is looking to make a run through the Big 12 and West Virginia will be standing in their way in the quarterfinals.

Baylor beat Oklahoma by 14 in their last game and are expected to win by a good amount again.

23rd ranked Colorado State and Utah State are projected to be the closest game for any top 25 team, with just a 2 point spread.

14th ranked Texas Tech is taking on Iowa State for another Big 12 matchup to end the night at 9:30 p.m ET.

Predictions for College Basketball on March 10th

  • Duke to Cover vs. Syracuse
  • Butler to Cover vs. Providence
  • Texas to Cover vs. TCU
  • Iowa to Cover vs. Northwestern
  • Arizona to Cover vs. Stanford
  • Kansas to Cover vs. West Virginia
  • Baylor to Cover vs. Oklahoma
  • Villanova to Cover vs. St. John’s
  • Colorado State to Cover vs. Utah State
  • Texas Tech to Cover vs. Iowa State

Duke is 17-12-2 ATS on the year, while Syracuse is an unimpressive 15-17.

I don’t feel great about the Butler cover, but they have hung with Providence this year. They lost both games, but one of them was by just 1 point and the other by 7.

Texas beat TCU by 9 and 23 in their two games this year. They have a smaller task to cover the 6 points this time around and are 16-3 as the home team this year.

Iowa and Northwestern squared off on February 28th, with Iowa dominating 82-61. They’re coming off a loss to Illinois, so they should bounce back against Northwestern.

Stanford is just 15-15 and they face the 2nd ranked team in the country. Arizona beat them by 12 and 28 in their two games this year.

Kansas beat West Virginia by 13 and 26 points this year.

Baylor beat Oklahoma by 10 and 14 in their two games this year.

Villanova gets the home advantage over St. John’s who is just 14-15-1 ATS this year.

Colorado State’s spread is just -2 after beating Utah State by 11 and 5 on the year.

Texas Tech is great ATS at 20-11 and should be able to cover against the Cyclones.

Best Bets for College Basketball on 3/10/2022

  • Duke (-13) -110
  • Colorado State (-2) -110
  • Texas Tech (-7.5) -110

Duke probably has a sour taste in their mouths for losing in Coach K’s final home game at Duke. I expect them to come out swinging this time around and cover against Syracuse. They also beat Syracuse by 25 on February 26th.

The Orange will also be without their leading scorer in Buddy Boeheim after he received a suspension for punching Wyatt Wilkes (Florida State).

That will be a very hard thing to overcome against one of the best teams in the country.

Colorado State only being 2 point favorites is very odd to me. They’ve been great this year at 24-4 and are 8-2 in their last 10. Beating Utah State in their last game by 11 made me think the line would be closer to 11 than at 2.

The Rams are also the 19th ranked team in the country in terms of offensive rating. They’re also 11th best (tied) in turnovers, and 7th best (tied) in true shooting percentage.

Texas Tech is incredible against the spread and have a good matchup against Iowa State. Their loss against them earlier this year was very uncommon and could make sure that they seal the deal this time around.
