    College Basketball Best Bets and Projections for 2/15 from the T Shoe Index

    Tyler Shoemaker's T Shoe Index college basketball best bets and projections for February 15.


    College basketball best bets and projections

    Thursday’s slate is a massive one, with over 150 games between men’s and women’s college hoops, so buckle up and get ready for what has the potential to be a higher volume betting day from me. We’re sitting at 126-86 for the season in women’s hoops and 76-68-1 in men’s, for a season total of 202-154-1 (56.7%). I will take that all day, even if picking winners on the men’s side has been far less profitable than it was for me last year. But, I always say, trust the process and we will win in the long run as my T Shoe Index has proven to do in multiple sports.

    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 15th:

    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.
