Bettin' is a Habit - Monday 11/14

The college hoops season is in full effect. We here at Ballin' is a Habit pride ourselves as hoops experts, so what better way to prove ourselves then by providing you with some knowledge to help you earn some cash.

If you followed this column at all last year, you know that I did a pretty terrible job at picking games. I certainly hope none of you actually put money on the picks I made. But if you want to see if you are better than B.I.A.H, head on over to, we will be there all year. We have a game set up for Tuesday 11/15. The league name is "ballinisahabit"

Bettin' is a Habit picks for Monday 11/14

9:05PM - Detroit (1-0) at Notre Dame (1-0)
Detroit has been touted as a "Sleeper team" in 2011-2012, but I'm just not sold. Ray McCallum is really good, but the loss of Eli Holman is huge. Notre Dame will be without their star Tim Abromaitis, but I don't think it's going to matter. Notre Dame will win by double-digits.

Pick: Notre Dame -7

10:00PM - Portland (2-0) at Washington (2-0)
Both teams are 2-0 and both teams have played the same teams (Florida Atlantic and Georgia Southern). Washington is know for it's high-octane offense, and they definitely have the players to make buckets, but I think that even the slight step up in competition will slow the Dawgs down. Washington will definitely win, but I don't think it's going to be enough of a high-scoring affair to cover.

Pick: Under 147

10:05PM - Nevada (0-1) at UNLV (1-0)
Nevada was supposed to be the favorite to win the WAC this season. But the Wolf Pack got smacked by Missouri State in their home opener by 22-points. Missouri State isn't even supposed to be that good this year. UNLV on the other hand is going to be good. I think Nevada will continue to struggle and that UNLV will lay the smack down.

Pick: UNLV -12.5

10:30PM - Nebraska (1-0) at Southern California (1-0)
Nebraska graduated their best player, Lance Jeter, but I still believe Nebraska will be an OK team. USC was poised to do big things this season but was ravaged by injury to two of their best players. USC is favored to win, but I'm not sure they will get it done.

Pick: Nebraska +1.5
