Minnesota at Northwestern Free Basketball Pick

January 23, 2013

minnesotaMinnesota is one of the best teams in the Big 10, a conference that is already considered to maybe be the best in the country.  This Minnesota team is dangerous and can beat anyone on any given day.  We are big fans of this young team and the program they are building there.  Northwestern is a pretty decent team too. They should not be overlooked by anyone.  Minnesota is 15-3 straight up and 11-5 Against the Spread.  Northwestern is 11-8 SU and 9-7 ATS.

Minnesota scores 76 points on offense and allows 62 points per game average on D.  Northwestern scores just 65 points and average an allowed 62 points per game also.  The Wildcats of Northwestern rely on the 3 pt. shot much more than Minnesota does.  Minnesota crashes the boards and plays much higher % shot type basketball.

Minnesota is coming off of two tough losses against Indiana and Michigan respectively. Those are considered the top two teams in the Big 10 so this is understandable.  They will be looking to bounce back fast and heavy against a lesser opponent tonight.  Northwestern is also coming off a loss to Indiana as well as an upset win over Illinois.  Northwestern just played Minnesota a little over two weeks ago and were skunked 69-51.  We think tonight’s game will be a repeat of that game and should be a solid 12 point or higher win for the Golden Gophers of Minnesota. Bet Minnesota now at one of our best bet sportsbooks.
