    College Basketball Best Bets and Projections for 2/14 from the T Shoe Index

    Tyler Shoemaker's T Shoe Index college basketball best bets and projections for February 14.


    College basketball best bets and projections

    Another close, disappointing loss on a bet last night gave us another split, going 1-1 on the day in men’s with no women’s action due to a small slate with sharper lines. Today’s slate for both men’s and women’s is much more palatable, so let’s hope to find some winners and get back on a run like we had a couple of weeks ago. Be sure to follow me on X, @TShoeIndex, to get women’s plays as soon as I bet them personally.

    Compare my odds to the college basketball odds (Vegas odds) and also take a look at the college basketball betting splits for additional info.


    These “College Basketball Best Bets and Projections” pieces will be occurring Monday-Thursday on VSiN.com, so buckle up and get ready to take advantage of having the T Shoe Index at your disposal from now on. 

    As a refresher, the T Shoe Index (TSI) is my proprietary rating system that I use for college football, NFL, men’s and women’s college basketball, and WNBA. It is a tempo and opponent-adjusted rating that allows us to answer the question, “How many points would team A be expected to score and allow vs Team B”, based on a myriad of statistical factors. 

    Here are the TSI projections for today, February 14th:

    How to read this sheet: the “TSI Projected Spread” is the projected point margin based on TSI ratings. If the number is positive, that indicates Team 1 is projected to win by that margin, if the number is negative, that indicates Team 2 is projected to win by that margin.
