O'Sullivan's Monday Ivy, ACC Picks: UMBC at Princeton, Albany at Boston College in a college basketball teaser

University of Maryland Baltimore County Retrievers at Princeton Tigers, 6 pm Eastern, Albany Great Danes at Boston College Golden Eagles, 8 pm.

Seattle O’Sullivan 2021-2022 ACC season so far: 12-18, -$172.28

Seattle O’Sullivan 2021-2022 Ivy League season so far: 15-14, +$36.74

University of Maryland Baltimore County Retrievers at Princeton Tigers, 6 pm Eastern

Albany Great Danes at Boston College Golden Eagles, 8 pm Eastern

The Pick: Teaser UMBC +12 w/Boston College -10, -110, bet $11 to win $10

This teaser takes not common opponents, but “will be common opponents,” into account. UMBC beat Columbia by 38 points on Dec. 1. Princeton hasn’t played Columbia yet, but when Ivy League play starts, do we really think the Tigers will beat them by 40? I’m not sure why UMBC is getting 6.5 points to start here. The Retrievers play the 47th fastest adjusted tempo in college ball, while Princeton is 222nd. I think UMBC runs the Tigers ragged, and even if Princeton wins, I’ll take double-digit points. Pairing them with Boston College, who’s playing at home against the 321st ranked team in Pomeroy. B.C. isn’t a great team, but they’re flirting with the top 100, so bringing that spread down to ten should be enough to get home.

The Pick: UMBC +6.5 -110, bet $5.50 to win $5

I think UMBC wins tonight. Put it this way: if Princeton wins easily tonight, their spread when they play Columbia should be -50…
