Bettin' is a Habit - 2/28

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 our knee-caps in.

It's the last day of the month, so your rent is due soon (unless you are one of the many keyboard assassins who still live in your parent's basement). Use these picks to earn some quick rent money.

Villanova (21-8, 9-7) at Notre Dame (23-5, 12-4)
This will be Villanova's third game in-a-row against a ranked opponent, and the Wildcats lost their last two games. 'Nova needs to pick up a win here, because their next game is at Pittsburgh, and that may be a tougher place to win than South Bend. It is very possible that the Wildcats end the season with a four-game losing streak. I'm not sure who is going to win this one, but I'm fairly certain it will be low scoring.

Pick: Under 140

Kansas State (20-9, 8-6) at Texas (24-5, 12-2)
Kansas State finally seems like they are turning their season around. Texas meanwhile looks like they may be fading down the stretch in the same fashion they did last season. I like Kansas State as 8.5-point underdogs, but I think I like the over/under more.

Pick: Over 135.5

Northern Colorado (17-10, 11-3) at Idaho State (9-18, 4-10)
The Bears are closing in on a Big Sky regular season title and a win against the Bengals could seal the deal. Last time they met, Northern Colorado won by 20, and the Bengals have lost two of their last three. I don't see Idaho State getting close in this one, even at home.

Pick: Northern Colorado -7
