Southern California Southern California +7 (-112)

USC is playing its best basketball of the season. In the last three games, the Trojans notched impressive wins over Utah and UCLA while falling in OT to Colorado. It’s not coincidental that their rise has coincided with a return to health. Five-star freshman point guard Isaiah Collier, who averages 16 points and 4.3 assists per game as one of the country’s best players, missed four weeks with a broken hand but has recently returned to 100%. Collier’s an unstoppable force and pairs with Boogie Ellis to form one of the nation’s best backcourts. Ellis dropped 24 points to lead all players in Saturday’s 62-56 win over UCLA and dropped 30 points on Colorado in the prior game, giving him 54 points across his last two games.

Pick - Spread
Gonzaga Gonzaga -4 (-110)

I projected the Bulldogs as 6-point favorites here, and situationally, they will be a strong backing down the stretch. That's because the Zags are in a unique position: Being one of the country's Top-5 most efficient offenses over the last month while simultaneously needing to win out to secure an NCAA Tournament bid. In this matchup, I like Gonzaga's ability to attack a cutting defense ranked in the Bottom 25% percentile in college basketball. On the other side of the ball, I need to see more direct routes to score consistently in the halfcourt for the Dons. This matchup doesn't provide many.

Pick - Total
Miami at Denver u214.5 (-115)

We've got a nice pairing for a low-scoring game featuring two of the slower-paced teams in the league who are each in strong defensive form. Miami, in particular, is allowing the fewest points per game while ranking second in defensive rating over the last 10 games while Denver ranks fifth in points allowed at home. When these teams met in the NBA Finals last season, they stayed below this number in four of the five games with at least one side scoring fewer than 100 points five times.

Pick - Spread
Miami Miami +5 (-110)

Miami is on a five-game winning streak, an underdog in the first four of those games and all of them on the road. Three of them have come since the All-Star Break, exceeding the spread’s expectations by 11.5 points per game. The Heat have not faced the Nuggets since the 2024 NBA Finals, so it would be understandable if some pent-up anger is under the Miami surface tonight. And with Denver on the second night of a back-to-back, this may be a moment for the Nuggets to ease up a touch.

Pick - Prop
Miami Jimmy Butler 6+ Assists (+135)

Jimmy Buckets has made a noticeable effort to become Jimmy Dimes recently. He has upped his assists per game from 4.7 to 6.6 over his last 11 games. His assists prop for tonight's matchup against the Nuggets is set at 4.5 and obviously juiced way to the Over. Instead, let's look at his alternate assists which can be had at nice plus money. Butler has recorded six or more assists in four straight games and in five of his last seven.
