    College basketball best bets and projections

    Another one bit the dust yesterday, as Fordham and George Mason forgot how to put the ball in the basket in the first half, leading to just 37 points in the first 20 minutes. Ugly. The Wednesday slate is pretty fruitful, so let’s hope to get back to our winning ways today for both men’s and women’s hoops. Follow me on X, @TShoeIndex, to get my women’s basketball bets as soon as I make them. I hope today is a handful-of-bets type of day on the women’s side, but we’ll see what these lines look like as they drop throughout the day.

    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 28th:

    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.
