College Basketball Race to 10 February 15

College Basketball Race to 10 Picks For Feb.15: Bet the Buffaloes

College basketball race to 10 bets are a quick and painless way to place a wager and receive immediate results. You could almost instantly be up (or down) a multitude of units on any given night, or even afternoon when college hoops are involved.

Below, I outline three Race to 10 bets you need to make for a scintillating college basketball slate on Thursday, February 15, 2024:

Memphis vs North Texas

Matchup: Memphis vs North Texas 8pm ET

North Texas-12013-10


Pick: North Texas -120

Despite being slight home underdogs in this contest, the Mean Green have a discernible advantage at the defensive end of the floor.

Currently the 50th ranked defense in the country, they allow less than 98 points per every 100 possessions. They're also fourth in the nation allowing just 61 points total per contest, and sit 36th in the country in opponent field goal percentage at just 40.8%.

Expect North Texas' stifling defense to slow down Memphis on their home floor. After all, the Tigers have struggled away from home lately, losing two of their last three games. North Texas' play offense at the second-slowest pace in the country, but should have enough juice to come out on top in the race to ten.

Stanford vs Washington

Matchup: Stanford vs Washington 9pm ET



Pick: Washington -140

Washington demonstrates a notable advantage on the offensive end of the court heading into Thursday night's Pac-12 contest. The Huskies rank 14th in the country while shooting 49.17% from the field. Scoring an average of nearly 37 first-half points per game points to the team's ability to get out to fast starts and they also love to push the pace sitting 45th in game pace.

Meanwhile, the Cardinal have given up over 81 points per game over their last three, allowing over 101 points per 100 possessions. They also play a fairly safe style of defense, and sit 38th worst in the country in points scored off steals. Ultimately, Stanford is the type of team to sit back and allow the game to come to them. Which works perfectly for our Washington Race to 10 bet. Lay the juice with the Huskies.

Colorado vs UCLA

Matchup: Colorado vs UCLA 9pm ET



Pick: Colorado -125

Perhaps a little of the Deion Sanders-led football team's momentum has rubbed off on the Colorado Buffaloes basketball team this season. They stand at an impressive 16-8 and have taken no prisoners this season, with wins over perennial powerhouses like USC and Miami.

This pick is more about pace than anything. UCLA are one of the slowest offenses in the nation, while Colorado loves to push the ball up the floor. Tad Boyle's team has shot the lights out this year, converting over 50% of their attempts, and crucially, nearly 40% from three. Moreover, our computer picks love the Colorado to win big in this one. UCLA's defense is their calling card, but expect the Buffaloes to race out to an early lead at Pauley Pavillion. Bet on the Buffaloes at -125.
