College basketball picks (Jan. 23)

It's a Monday so the slate is smaller and a lot of teams are on short rest.

I don't want anything to do with Duke-Va. Tech or Kansas-Baylor. Both of the road teams (Duke and Kansas) are 2-point underdogs. With little prep time, that feels right, but Kansas is on a two-game losing skid. Hard to see them getting to 3 but Baylor should be favored.

The Duke game is hard to project. Va. Tech is better than the record says. They've dealt with an injury to one of their best players in Cattoor, who just returned last Saturday, and they've lost five of their eight ACC games by five points or less.

Plays I do like:
Nevada -3.5 (on the rise)
Northwestern -2.5

Who ya got?
