Bettin' is a Habit - 2/1

We here at B.I.A.H don't fancy ourselves gamblers, but we do know a lot of people with crippling addictions to gambling. So why not help enable them, right? Semi-regularly, we will provide you a couple of picks and one lead-pipe-lock that you can take to the bank. But if you take our advice and don't win any money, you aren't allowed to come bash are knee-caps in.

Creighton (14-9, 6-5) at Bradley (6-16, 0-11)
Bradley stinks. That's why I've chosen this game. But I just learned that this game has been moved back from a 8:05PM tip to 3:00PM. That may cause Creighton some trouble. But because the line is so small, and because Bradley is so bad, I like Creighton.

Pick: Creighton -4

No. 10 Purdue (18-4, 7-2) at No. 18 Wisconsin (15-5, 5-3)
I'm staying away from the line on this one because the Kohl Center is such a tough environment to play in. Yes, Purdue is getting 5-points, but you just never know with Wisconsin at home. Instead I like this one to be relatively-high scoring, somewhere in the mid-60's for both teams, which will be enough to beat the over/under.

Pick: Over 122.5

Iowa State (14-8, 1-6) at Colorado (14-8, 3-4)
If you are feeling a bit frisky today, you might want to have a look at this one. Colorado has lost four-in-a-row but three of those games were on the road, and the lone home game was against Kansas. But Iowa State has also lost four-in-a-row, and their last two losses were against Texas Tech and Oklahoma, both of whom are not very good teams. I like Colorado to pick up a big home win.

Pick: Colorado -7.5
