NCAA-B | Gonzaga vs Santa Clara
Play on: Santa Clara +13 -110 at betonline

10* Free NCAAB Pick (Santa Clara +13)

I'm backing the Broncos at home against No. 4 Gonzaga. I just think we are seeing an inflated line here on the Bulldogs, who come in having yet to lose (17-0) and having won each of their 5 conference games by at least 15 points. Santa Clara isn't likely to hand Gonzaga their first loss, but I think they can keep this one close enough to cover. The Broncos have won 4 of 5 and are a respectable 7-3 at home this season. Santa Clara also has been a tough out for the Bulldogs, covering in each of the last 7 meetings. Last year they were a similarly priced 15-point home dog and lost by just 2-points (77-79). Gonzaga is just 17-33 ATS in their last 50 road games after 2 straight home wins by 10 or more points and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 after 3 straight games where they shot 53% or better from the field. Give me the Broncos +13!

NCAA-B | Middle Tennessee vs Florida International
Play on: OVER 127½ -110

Free Pick - Rickenbach CBB Game #711 Thursday - OVER the total in Florida International Golden Panthers vs Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders @ 7 ET - The Golden Panthers could be without Donte McGill again tonight but, including the game he got hurt, he has now missed about two and a half games and yet Florida International has still averaged 69 points per game in these three games and they were all on the road! Now the Panthers are back home where they are hitting 48% of their field goal attempts on the season. Also, FIU's defense has been a concern. Prior to their ugly low-scoring loss at UTSA Saturday, the Golden Panthers had allowed 4 straight opponents to connect on 47% or better from the field. Florida International gave up an average of 81 points per game in those 4 games and now host a 15-3 Middle Tennessee team that is averaging 75 points per game on the season. The Blue Raiders offense will prove to be too much for the FIU defense but the real value i this game appears to be with the total because I do expect the Golden Panthers to continue their high-scoring ways in home games. The Panthers are a bad team but they can but up big points and, even though their game at UTEP went into double OT they did have 66 points at the end of regulation. The over is 4-1 in FIU's conference games this season and the over is on a 9-3 run when the Golden Panthers are off of a game where they allowed 60 points or less. Look for the over to improve to 4-1 in Blue Raiders games this season where they are off of a win against a conference rival. Free Pick on OVER the total in Florida International Thursday. Best of luck, Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach

NCAA-B | Rice vs Louisiana Tech
Play on: Louisiana Tech -5 -115 at BMaker

Rice (4-3 Road, 2-3 Conference) takes on Louisiana Tech (8-2 Home, 4-1 Conference) in a clash of C-USA foes tonight in Louisiana. Offense meets defense in this match-up. Rice is averaging 83.3 points per game on the road vs L. Tech's 59.6 points allowed at home. Rice is giving up 76.6 points per game on the road this year vs L.Tech's 77.8 points scored per game at home this year. L. Tech is riding a two game winning streak. Beating Charlotte and ODU on the road. Playing better on the year statistically at home, I like Louisiana Tech in this one. Rice can score the ball, but they lack on the defensive end and aren't as good on the road, as their record shows. Louisiana Tech will cover.

NCAA-B | Pacific vs St. Mary's
Play on: St. Mary's -22½ -110 at betonline

St. Mary's is coming off a bad loss to their rival Gonzaga and a poor offense in Pacific comes to town. The Gaels have beaten teams by 20 points or more five times already this season and it's their first home game since January 5th. Pacific is coming off a 21 point loss at San Francisco to go with a 29 point road loss at BYU already during conference play. They were blown out at UMass earlier this year and crushed by the Bruins to open the season up. Pacific has shot 40% or less in three of their last four and won't be able to find their offense in Moraga. The Tigers have covered just one of their eight road games and 12 of their last 33 away from home as well. I think this one gets real ugly.

NCAA-B | Maryland vs Iowa
Play on: Iowa -2½ -107 at 5Dimes

Free Pick on Iowa -

I like the value here with the Hawkeyes as a short home favorite against the Terrapins. Maryland has surprised a lot of people with their 16-2 record and 4-1 start in Big Ten play, but it's not like the Terrapins are blowing teams out. They have been very fortunate in close games and it's only a matter of time before things don't go their way. I believe there's a good chance it comes tonight at Iowa.

The Hawkeyes have been an up and down team this season, as you would expect for a team that is playing so many freshmen. Iowa is 3-3 in the Big Ten and there's been a theme so far. Iowa has lost all 3 games on the road and won all 3 games at home, including a 83-78 win over Purdue in their last home game. This is also a huge bounce back spot for Iowa coming off an ugly 54-89 loss at Northwestern.

Hawkeyes are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 home games with a 4-1 ATS mark in their last 5 at home against a team that's won more than 60% of their road games. It's also worth pointing out Maryland is team that loves to shoot the 3-point shot, they are averaging 8 made 3-pointers on 23 attempts/game. Hawkeyes are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 home games against teams who make 8 or more 3-point shots/game. Take Iowa!
