    College Basketball Best Bets and Projections for 2/29 from the T Shoe Index

    Tyler Shoemaker's T Shoe Index college basketball best bets and projections for February 29.


    College basketball best bets and projections

    Something about betting sweep the night before just makes the following day so much better immediately, no matter how many or few bets you actually placed. In our case, a 2-0 Wednesday was just what the doctor ordered. I had hoped to get involved on the women’s side of things but due to personal life obligations, I was not able to do so. There is a juicy slate today, so I’m expecting to be involved with some women’s basketball today, as well as two more men’s bets in the chamber.

    Follow me on X, @TShoeIndex, for today’s top women’s bets.


    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 29th:

    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.
