Alright brothers, let’s get to it, because we have a ton of work to do today baby. I’m writing this on a train heading into HQ because you need your winners and you need them NOW. I get that, that’s why we don’t rest on this team. Last week in this column, we went 4-0 with a parlay hit. Yesterday in the office, we went 10-4 with another parlay hit. That’s nice. So what, who cares, what’s next? What’s next is an incredible slate of games today. I’m giving you all NCAA games. That’s what you want, that’s what you get. If you want info, matchups, breakdowns or predictions on anything else today, pop on over to our great friends at ODDSSHARK. They have all the information you could possibly desire for any game available to bet on. Also check our their comprehensive March Madness wagering guide if you have any questions.
Marshall v. Wichita State (Wich -12.5)—Gregg Marshall and the Shockers are no strangers to this tournament, and they usually find a way to win games here as well. Landry Shamet and Shaq Morris are certainly tough matchups for the Thundering Herd. But let’s not sleep on Marshall, they have Rockets Coach Mike D’Antoni’s brother, Dan, as their head coach. D’Antoni has Jon Elmore and C.J. Burks who average nearly 45 points per game between them. Marshall is peaking at the right time of year and they did happen to beat MTSU twice this year, a team most thought was a certain NCAA tournament team. I think ultimately, Wichita State gets the job done, but this is too many points. THE PICK: MARSHALL +12.5
Nevada v. Texas (Tex -1)—I’ve been as high on Eric Musselman’s Wolfpack this year as anybody. I thought they played excellent basketball in the Mountain West this season, but cracks started to develop as the year wound down. In the MWC tournament, the Wolfpack started to struggle with lesser teams, with UNLV nearly pulling the upset. Then losing outright to San Diego State. I believe this is a result of the injury bug which has left them with very few scholarship players suiting up. Texas, on the other hand, appears to be getting Mo Bamba back healthy, which is a huge addition. Texas really banded together when Andrew Jones went out early in the year with a cancer diagnosis. It’s impressive they’ve gotten this far, but they also don’t strike me as satisfied by it or happy to be here. THE PICK: TEXAS -1
Lipscomb v. UNC (UNC-19.5)—Everyone is loving Lipscomb and the over in this game. Not this guy. The over is too high when one of the teams is Lipscomb. I know they like to run and push tempo, but their athletes cannot compare with UNC’s. UNC likes to run too, and I expect by the second half UNC will have run Lipscomb right out of the gym, which happens to be in Charlotte, North Carolina, by the way. Lay the points, don’t overthink it. THE PICK: UNC -19.5
