Expert Top NCAAB Picks of the Week – December 18th

Kansas Jayhawks over Omaha Mavericks

The Kansas Jayhawks have gone through some tough times, with back to back losses, and then a narrow win over Nebraska, but the Jayhawks are approaching Christmas with a chance to win their 9th game of the season. This game should not be close. Omaha is out of the Summit League, and they struggle. They struggle against anyone they play, and now they get a Jayhawks team that is looking for blood. Kansas scores 100 in this game and they win easily.

Xavier Musketeers over Marshall Thundering Herd

Chris Mack and his Musketeers are pretty good. They are talented, with a great offense, and one of the toughest defenses you will find in College Basketball. The Musketeers have won five straight games, and are 8-0 at home. They will be tested by the Thundering Herd, who have won four straight games. Marshall has struggled on the road with just one win in four games. Look for Xavier to give them a rude welcome to Cincinnati. The Musketeers win this game easily over the Thundering Herd on Tuesday.

Duke Blue Devils over Evansville Aces

The Aces are off to a 10-2 start and hope to compete in a competitive Missouri Valley. The Aes have won five straight games. Their two losses this season came to Louisiana Tech and New Mexico. The Aces are going to be out of their league with a Duke team that many feels are the most talented in the nation. The Blue Devils win and win big in this game, and move to 12-1 on the season.

Be sure to include Duke in your NCAAB Picks list for this week.

Arizona Wildcats over Connecticut Huskies

These are two of the power programs in all of College Basketball. A ton of good basketball history between these two teams. They combine to be 15-6 heading into this game. The Wildcats are heating up after dropping three straight games. Look for Sean Miller and his Wildcats to get back on track and show why they were one of the top-ranked teams in the country to start the season. Arizona wins big against UConn who is playing their first road game on Thursday.

Kentucky Wildcats over UCLA Bruins

On the final day of games before College Basketball takes a bit of a break for Christmas – two power programs get together in Lexington. The Kentucky Wildcats take on the UCLA Bruins. Look for the young kids of Kentucky to play well, as they just keep getting better under John Calipari. Kentucky whips the Bruins on Saturday.
