College Basketball (Week of Jan. 19)

Games for the week. As you can see, I'm trying to pick the games that match up two ranked teams. I also snuck in an SEC game for Ron (since nobody in the SEC is ranked) and a women's game (denoted below in pink, the way it should roll by on the bottom line ticker on ESPN) because of the local interest.

You might double check for spreads and correct home teams before sending in picks.

Purdue (-6.5) @ Indiana
**Quick Note**
I did not realize that it is damn near impossible to find a spread for a regular season women's basketball game. I thought Vegas was prepared to take a bet on anything. This means that I had to set the spread myself on Monday morning. You will notice from my prediction that the spread was not based on what I thought the outcome of the game would resemble. Like Vegas, I tried my best to set the "money line" that would encourage betting on both sides. I figured the were more "Purdue people" than "IU People" predicting and the histories of the two programs would encourage more people to pick Purdue than IU. I won't offer very many women's games until the tournament in March.
