College basketball picks for Memphis vs. Vanderbilt

Before tuning into the Vanderbilt vs. Memphis game, you need to see the college basketball picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. It entered Week 7 of the 2023-24 season on a 100-64 roll on all top-rated college basketball picks dating back to last season, returning more than $2,000 for $100 players. It is also off to an 12-4 start on top-rated spread picks this season. Anyone following has seen huge returns. 

For Memphis vs. Vanderbilt, the model projects that the Commodores cover the spread as 16.5-point road underdogs. Vanderbilt head coach Jerry Stackhouse is in desperate need of an upset win, as pressure is mounting following four seasons without an NCAA Tournament appearance. The Commodores are No. 297 in the latest NET rankings after going 22-15 last year in a campaign that ended in the NIT.

While Vanderbilt has struggled so far this season, it has covered the spread in 11 of its last 14 road games. The Commodores are an experienced team, with three of their top four leading scorers being seniors. Guard Ezra Manjon leads Vanderbilt with 15.8 points, 3.8 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game following his 18-point performance against Western Carolina on Tuesday.

Memphis is off to a strong start to its 2023-24 season, but it has not been winning games in blowout fashion. The Tigers' win over Virginia marked their first victory by at least 20 points, despite being favored by more than 20 points in their games against Jackson State and Alabama State last month. SportsLine's model expects Vanderbilt to keep this game respectable, as the Commodores are covering the spread in 60% of the latest simulations. Stream the game here.
