Nojel Eastern and the Purdue Boilermakers (10-9 overall) haven't experienced a close-shave result (five points or less) in their last five games.

BATSBY Sports offers its most appealing betting picks for the upcoming college basketball weekend.

For September, October, November, December and parts of January, BATSBY enjoyed an amazing first year with money-line selections, emphasizing the NFL and NCAA football.

Tent-pole moments, such as:

**Six consecutive weekends of 9-6 overall out of the proverbial chute.

**For November and December, we posted six weeks of nine-plus victories (80-55 combined during this two-month span).

**Put it all together … and BATSBY finished 48 games above .500, along with a remarkably clean winning rate of 60 percent.

BOTTOM LINE: For those who have been riding our money-line picks from Day 1 … we fully expect you back for Year 2.

And now, we’re ready to throw college basketball into the betting mix.

About The Managing Editor

Jay Clemons remains the only sports writer on the planet to capture Cynposis Media’s national award for Sports Blog Of The Year (beating out NBA.com, MLB.com, PGATour.com, The Players’ Tribune in 2015), along with the Fantasy Sports Writers Association’s pre-eminent award for Best Writer (2008). Through the years, Mr. Clemons has been a key figure with numerous blue-chip sports/media brands, namely the Detroit Lions, Sports Illustrated, FOX Sports, Bleacher Report and the NBC/Universal family. With Sports Illustrated (2006-11), Clemons served a triple role with SI.com‘s heralded football coverage—editing Peter King’s famed ‘Monday Morning Quarterback’ column, penning award-winning pieces for NFL and then writing/narrating scripted videos within the NFL and baseball realms. In 2013, Clemons’ first year with the company, FOX Sports South enjoyed a monumental increase of approximately 34 million Web hits in a 12-month cycle—merely posting 11 million hits the previous year. 

Then, over a two-month span in 2014, FOX Sports South amassed 19.5 million Web hits—a 60-day record for any FOX affiliate. And in 2015, Clemons claimed the aforementioned Cynopsis Media award on FOX Sports’ behalf, the company’s only national writing award during that period. Clemons, a graduate of Michigan State University  and Wayne State University, has been an on-camera Web-TV host for Sports Illustrated, Bleacher Report and FOX Sports. In 2015, he also became the first-ever sports journalism professor at Kennesaw State University in suburban Atlanta.
