College funds: Tuesday's best NCAAB bets

Wisconsin Badgers at Penn State Nittany Lions (10, 110.5)

No. 25 Wisconsin takes aim at its sixth consecutive victory Tuesday night when it travels eastward to face a slumping Penn State club.

The Nittany Lions have lost five of six, including a 78-54 drubbing at Ohio State last Wednesday, to fall into last place in the Big Ten. The Badgers, meanwhile, stayed one game behind league leader Ohio State after a 57-50 home win against then-No. 17 Indiana on Thursday.

The Badgers remain one of the most effective defensive teams in the country, leading Division I in points allowed (49.6) and field-goal percentage defense (36.3).

Wisconsin's defense should spell trouble for the Nittany Lions, who are already one of the coldest shooting teams in the country. Penn State is a distant last in the Big Ten in field-goal percentage (38.3, 332nd in NCAA) and 3-point shooting (30.8 percent).

Pick: Badgers

North Carolina Tar Heels at Wake Forest Demon Demons (16, 152.5)

North Carolina has traditionally experienced some turbulence when it pays a visit to Tobacco Road rival Wake Forest.

The Tar Heels have won just 11 of the last 20 meetings at Winston-Salem (N.C.) - and settled for a split in the last four contests overall between the in-state rivals.

Roy Williams' club looks to right the ship Tuesday when fifth-ranked North Carolina faces Wake Forest in the clubs' lone matchup this season. The Tar Heels have won three in a row and 12 of their last 13 while the Demon Deacons have been struggling in January.

Wake Forest has dropped six of the eight contests this month, including a 76-60 setback to Clemson on Saturday.The Tar Heels made good on Williams' vow that they would find their range from long distance.

Sophomore F Harrison Barnes connected on eight of 14 shots from the field for a team-high 23 points and North Carolina benefited from 10 3-pointers in its 93-81 victory over Georgia Tech on Sunday.

Pick: Over

Who is the moron that makes these picks? This guy is absolutely horrible. If you want to give away money follow this crap. I've been keeping up with these picks the past few weeks and these go 0-2 most nights. It's impressive how many losing picks have been made. I've been taking the opposite and actually made good money the past few weeks
