College Basketball Picks – Vanderbilt Commodores to Stumble Again at Florida Gators
Written by North Shore Sports, Inc.
Here at Bookmaker Sportsbook, we’re always keeping a close eye on the hardwood, and this week, we’re set to make our college basketball picks for Saturday’s SEC duel between the Florida Gators and Vanderbilt Commodores.
On Saturday, February 4th at 1:00 ET, the Florida Gators (17-4, 8-7-1 ATS) and Vanderbilt Commodores (16-6, 9-9 ATS) will get it on at the O’Connell Center in Gainesville, FL. Here at Bookmaker Sportsbook, our college basketball picks for this duel are all set! The telecast will be shown nationally on CBS.
It wasn’t all that long ago that the Commodores were ranked in the Top 25 in the country and seemed to be a lock to make the NCAA Tournament. However, a loss on Tuesday night at the Arkansas Razorbacks really hurt them, and now all of a sudden, upcoming games against the Gators and the Kentucky Wildcats (with a home date with the LSU Tigers sandwiched in the middle) could reasonably leave the team at just 17-8 with a handful of games left to play.
John Jenkins, as always, is going to have a lot of pressure on him for the Commodores. At times, he is the only man that can bring this bunch to winning college basketball betting picks, and Saturday won’t be an exception to that. He is averaging 19.9 points per game, and he and Jeffrey Taylor, who is good for 17.4 points per game, are the only men that can really do damage to opposing defenses.
With the way that the Gators go flying up and down the court, even getting 40 between Jenkins and Taylor might not be enough.
Head Coach Billy Donovan knows that his team is on its way to March Madness again this year, and it would take a lot to make our college basketball gambling picks against the blue and orange. UF has won five in a row, a streak that should be stretched to six games with a home date with the South Carolina Gamecocks coming on Thursday night.
This isn’t a particularly deep team, but of the eight players that Donovan uses on a regular basis, six are good for at least 8.3 points per game. That type of well-rounded effort makes the Gators tough to tame, especially knowing that the only one shooting less than 48 percent from the field is Bradley Beal.
College Basketball Betting Pick – The Commodores are 4-2 SU and 5-1 ATS on the road this year, but their first failed attempt at a cover as guests came on Tuesday in Fayetteville. We don’t think that matters are going to get any easier in the Swamp, where the Gators are usually dominating. They are already 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS this year in conference play at the O-Dome, and that should continue with another big time win this weekend over Vandy.
Making college basketball picks is often difficult, especially if you don’t have the right sportsbook on your side to give you the best prices.
