Guys & Bets (Episode 241): Three College Basketball Picks and Three Premier League Picks

Andrew Avery and Iain MacMillan are in their wheelhouse today with a nice slate of soccer matches and college basketball games on the docket, including Duke hosting Miami in ACC action.

Coming off a clean sweep (3-0) yesterday, Iain goes right back to college hoops. This one is for a Big East showdown between the 13th-ranked Butler Bulldogs and the ninth-ranked Wildcats of Villanova. Butler enters this contest having dropped its last two games against Seton Hall and DePaul. Villanova comes into this one averaging 63.2 points over its last 10 games. Iain’s wager here is on the spread.

Moving along, Iain has a wager on the spread as the Kentucky Wildcats entertain the Georgia Bulldogs. Kentucky is starting a streak of five consecutive games against SEC opponents.

Wrapping up his picks, Iain has a wager on the spread for an ACC matchup. Duke has lost two in a row and is looking to get back on track in the tough ACC. The Blue Devils host the Miami Hurricanes and these teams squared off in Miami earlier this season with the Blue Devils coming out on top 95-62. Vernon Carey Jr. is leading the way for Duke, averaging 17.3 points per game to go along with 8.4 rebounds.

Ninja gets his three EPL picks started with Bournemouth hosting Brighton. Bournemouth comes into this match having dropped its last four matches. This is an important match as Brighton is only five points up on the Cherries. With Brighton looking to pull the double on Bournemouth, Ninja takes a look at a side.

Next up for Ninja is a matchup of two teams with 29 points each in the EPL as Everton hosts Newcastle. Everton has only lost one of its last eight matches, a stretch that includes a 2-1 victory over Newcastle. There are some key injury concerns as Ninja will point out and use to come up with his bet, which is on the total.

We wrap the show in the EPL as Chelsea hosts Arsenal in a London Derby. Chelsea has a five-point cushion over Manchester United for the all-important fourth place. Arsenal comes into this one on the heels of some dropped points in the league, but Stamford Bridge has been a bit of a sore spot down the years. Ninja likes a play on a side here.
