    College Basketball Best Bets and Projections for 2/22 from the T Shoe Index

    Tyler Shoemaker's T Shoe Index college basketball best bets and projections for February 22.


    College basketball best bets and projections

    There are two massive slates today in the college hoops world, with nearly 150 games between men’s and women’s basketball. We’re in a bit of a slump with women’s plays lately, though are still sitting at 131-91 on the season. Men’s plays are on an 8-4 run and sit at 84-74-1 on the season. I’ve got three men’s plays as of now, and what I assume will be a pretty sizable women’s card today as well, so be sure to follow me on X, @TShoeIndex, to get those women’s plays as I make them.

    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 22nd:

    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.
