community news, College basketball picks: Expert best bets for Tuesday games

While we were thankful for Feast Week, it’s time to move on to another exciting week of hoops. College basketball experts Three Man Weave are back with their two best bets for today’s slate. For these bets, we’re using the current odds from William Hill (as of 10:13 a.m. EST). 

Old Dominion at William & Mary
3MW Pick: Old Dominion -1

As I am wont to do in these pick write-ups, I’ll start with the bad news. Old Dominion has lost four games in a row, with three of them coming in a Feast Week disaster in the Cayman Islands—a sort of ODU basketball Fyre Fest (not the Bahamas, but you get the analogy). As poorly as Ja Rule and Billy McFarland executed their music festival plan, the Monarchs’ offensive execution in the Caribbean was nearly as bad, struggling even more than a typical ODU offensive attack—which is saying something.

Thanks for watching!

The thing is, sometimes teams just get in a rut at those three-day tournaments, especially after losing the first game and ending up in the losers’ bracket. Back on the mainland with nearly a week of rest, the Monarchs should be refreshed and looking to start anew, and this feels like a terrific “buy-low” spot for a well-coached team. After falling to Loyola-Chicago in the seventh-place game, coach Jeff Jones was optimistic despite a fourth straight loss:

“It is always disappointing to lose, but I thought our effort was terrific and we can work with that…We have to work on and address some things, but maybe, just maybe, depending on what we do with the opportunities in front of us, this could be a turning point for our basketball team.”
