Our very own college basketball analyst shares his top three underdog NCAA basketball picks on today’s slate. Join us inside this revealing betting article to make your plays.

Kansas State vs. TCU 8:00 PM ET
Unless one is illiterate, anyone can see that TCU (2-10) is currently dead last in the BIG-12 standings. However, the Horned Frogs are just 1.0 game behind Kansas State (3-9). In addition, Kansas State is an abysmal 0-7 in their last seven true road games. That futility in itself doesn’t bode well for a road favorite. It’s not like TCU has a strong home court advantage, but they have gone 3-3 during its previous six games in Fort Worth. I’m going with the home side to cover for one of my Tuesday NCAA basketball picks.

Ole Miss vs. Texas A&M 9:00 PM ET
Ole Miss has been very competitive over the last few weeks. As a matter of fact, the Rebels are 6-1 ATS in their previous seven games. They’ve been stellar with three point shooting team of late, converting on 39.2% of its long distance attempts over their previous five games. The great equalizer for an underdog in college basketball is the ability to knock down three point shots at a high percentage. Considering the sizable number I’ll be receiving in this contest, Ole Miss’ three-point accuracy certainly must be factored heavily into this handicapping equation.

Texas A&M will enter Tuesday’s game as an ice cold team. The Aggies have gone 0-4 SU&ATS in its last four and 1-5 SU&ATS during their previous five games. I firmly believe this is much too large of a point spread to cover for a struggling favorite against a sizzling hot ATS opponent.

Iowa State vs. Baylor 9:00 PM ET
Iowa State will be seeking revenge stemming from a 94-89 home loss to Baylor on 1/9. That was a Baylor team at that time which was playing very well, and much has changed since then. The Cyclones have gone a respectable 4-4 straight up and 5-3 ATS in true road games this season.

Baylor has gone 0-3 SU&ATS in its last three home games versus BIG-12 opponents, and lost by an average of 12.0 points per outing. What’s really alarming about the Bears right now is their horrible play defensively in recent games. Baylor is allowing 74.7 points per game, and its opponents are shooting a combined 50.3% from the field during their previous seven contests. That’s not good news for tonight’s game, considering they’ll be facing one of the nation’s better shooting teams.

Current NCAA basketball odds provide me with a best combination of number and price for this specific wager.
