 With tonight's college basketball picks, we are recommending adding two underdogs. Which teams are getting our backing?

NCAA Basketball Picks for Arizona vs. Stanford

Vanderbilt Commodores vs. Georgia Bulldogs

Both teams are at 10-8 SU for the season and have been doing very similar in terms of their ATS records too. Vanderbilt is 9-7-1 ATS and Georgia checks in at 9-7 ATS.

When these SEC foes meet up tonight, the Bulldogs will be favored by six points on their home court. No O/U had been released at time of writing.

The Commodores are coming off one of their better efforts of the season in a 66-55 road win over Texas A&M. James Siakam exploded for 22 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks, while Kyle Fuller had 19 points, four assists and three rebounds.

Georgia has been off since a blowout 54-79 loss at Kentucky last weekend and have surely had a few days of intense practices to help them get back on track.

The Bulldogs will be aiming to improve their 9-1 record at home. They've been solid to back with your sports picks too at 6-2 against the spread.

The Commodores have been having a down year, but their dominance over Georgia over the year is still worth pointing out. They've won eight straight in the series, though it's been an even 4-4 ATS split in those matchups.

In tonight's battle, we see a lot of value in taking Vanderbilt, regardless of them being on the road. They looked very good in that victory over A&M and we see them carrying it over to impress to 6-3 ATS away from Nashville.

College Basketball Pick: Vanderbilt Commodores +6

Syracuse Orange vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Hoping to stay undefeated, the Orange (19-0 SU, 10-4-1 ATS) square off against Wake Forest (14-6 SU, 9-7 ATS) tonight.

Looking over the college basketball odds, we see Syracuse favored by nine points here on the road. Coming in the Orange have covered the spread in six of their seven games outside of the Carrier Dome this season.

For the most part, conference play has been a breeze for Syracuse so far, as they've beaten Miami (twice), Pittsburgh, Boston College, UNC and Virginia Tech. Four of those wins came by double figures.

On the other side, the Demon Deacons have recovered after an eight-point road loss at Clemson, beating Virginia Tech (83-77 on the road) and then Notre Dame (65-58) at home. Codi Miller-McIntyre, Devin Thomas and Travis McKie have been the big three for Wake Forest this season and will be called upon to lead by example against this strong Syracuse squad.

When breaking this matchup down, it's hard not to take all of those points. After all, Wake Forest is still undefeated at home, with the standout victory coming over UNC (73-67) earlier this month. The crowd is going to be crazy for this one tonight.

The Demon Deacons have protected their home court exceptionally well, but can they pass the toughest test of them all against the well-coached Orange?

Well, they may not win straight up, but we do think siding with Wake Forest as one of your college basketball picks is the way to go. This is a lot of points to get with a good team on their home floor, so add the Demon Deacons in what we expect will be a game that goes down to the wire.

College Basketball Pick: Wake Forest Demon Deacons +9
