There’s a huge slate of college basketball games slated for Saturday’s card. Ross Benjamin has isolated 3 underdogs he’ll be using today. Go inside to find out what those picks are and why he’s chosen to bet on them.

Colorado State Rams vs Nevada Wolf Pack

Game# 631-632

Colorado State enters today's contest riding a 7-game win streak, and they covered on 6 of those occasions. The Rams are a very profitable 7-1 ATS in conference road games this season and won 6 of those contests straight up. As a matter of fact, Colorado State is 5-0 SU&ATS during their last 5 away games, and 10-1 ATS in true road games for the season. Furthermore, they were an underdog in each of those last 5 road contests and won by a convincing margin of 9.2 points per game.

Nevada will be the team to beat in the upcoming Mountain West Conference Tournament. However, covering today's sizable number against a red-hot opponent is a tall order. I'm fading the Wolfpack as a home favorite for one of my Saturday college basketball picks.

Cal State Fullerton Titans vs Cal State Northridge Matadors

Game# 647-648

Northridge is a dismal 1-5 during their previous 6 games, and that includes losing 4 straight. They're also a less than inspiring 2-4 in their last 6 conference home games. From a defensive standpoint, Northridge hasn't performed well of late. Specifically, over their previous 5 games, Northridge has allowed its opponents to shoot 48.3%, and that includes an extremely high 45.6% from 3-point territory.

Fullerton comes into Saturday's road contest having gone 7-2 SU&ATS during their previous 9, and 5-1 SU&ATS in its last 6 games. The Titans will also be playing with revenge stemming from an earlier season 70-65 home loss at the hands of Northridge.

Free NCAAB Pick: CS-Fullerton +4

Sacramento State Hornets vs Northern Colorado Bears

Game# 675-676

Northern Colorado is a poor 3-10 in their previous 13 games. Saturday will be the first time since 1/26 that college basketball betting odds have displayed Northern Colorado as a favorite. As a matter of fact, Saturday will be just the 6th time all season that Northern Colorado will assume the role of a favorite. They were 1-4 ATS on the first 5 occasions, and that includes failing to cover 4 consecutive times.

Sacramento State is an outstanding 9-1 ATS during their last 10 games as an underdog, and they won straight up in 6 of those contests. Additionally, Sacramento State is 5-2 straight up and 6-1 ATS in their previous 7 games overall.

Free NCAABPick: Sacramento State +3
