This seems too good to be true. I'm all over the over of 123.5 on this. Bradley averages 69 PPG at home during conference and 68 on the season while giving up 68 PPG at home during conference and 67 on the season. On the flip side, Loyola has averaged 59 PPG on the road during conference (includes a fluke 35 point game) and 67 on the season. Loyola gives up 66.5 PPG during conference and 60 on the season. They have to average 62 points each and Bradley has failed to reach that number 7 times in 25 games (2 times at home) while Loyola has failed 8 of 25 games this season (5 on the road). The only way this doesn't go over is if Loyola has a bad shooting night and Bradley isn't known for having a lock down D. My prediction, 67-64.
My Pick: Over 123.5

This Providence team is not efficient at scoring baskets from really anywhere on the floor. Villanova's switching D has hit stride, only allowing about about 63 points per game in their last 5. Even if the shots aren't falling for the Wildcats, they will beat the Friars up on the Offensive Glass as they rank just 215th in offensive rebound rate allowed. I'm laying the points and playing the under.
My Pick: Villanova -11 & Under 135

I know the Spurs are giving up an average of 130 per game on the Rodeo Trip but only -4.5 to the Griz? This is baffling. My play of the night here as Pop simply will get his troops prepared and stay in front of a slow and lethargic Memphis Offense. These guys they've been playing are high-powered offenses. Not tonight.
My Pick: San Antonio -6

Buffalo is in danger of falling out of the top 25 against a Zips team who played their most complete game the other night against rival Kent State. The Bulls have been falling in the standings losing 2 of their last 5. They got Toledo on the road after this one too and I expect them to go win this one but Utomi will have a good game and it is hard to win for the opposition at Rhodes Arena. Akron has been bad at just 2-9 ATS in their last 11 but they've won 4 of 5 and I expect the student section to get rowdy tonight. UB plays well on the road but they're limping in. This game wakes them up a bit and gets them ready for a tougher Toledo matchup. UB gets the dub but I'm taking the points with the recently inspired, Zips.

LSU has won 12 of their last 13 games and the Tigers offense has been solid as they rank 18th in scoring offense and have been putting an eye popping 83 PPG. The Tigers are going to have their hands full today going up against an equally hot Kentucky team that 5-0 ATS in their last 5 and an impressive 13-0 at home. But when I look at this spread, I just think 8.5 points is a lot of points to give a team that has the athleticism to give Kentucky a run for their money.
My Pick: LSU +8.5

If this game is close, UVA wins it. So in a pick em where simulations barely giving UNC the edge, I got the Cavs. They've basically demolished everyone but Duke. To say UNC can take something out of that game plan is unrealistic because Duke is just silly athletic. I like the #1 Defensive Efficiency to bounce back against UNC tonight.
My Pick: Virginia +0

I played Ok State +10.5 against KU on Saturday, and lost by a bucket as the Jayhawks lit it up from 3 point land in that game. Kansas is still dealing with some personnel issues with Lagerald Vick out today and possibly Marcus Garrett out with ankle injury. TCU picked up their first road win in the Big 12 over top ranked Iowa State team and comes into this game with an impressive 11-1 record at home this season. TCU has been somewhat of a fickle team this year and has had some bad losses but I'll lay the 3 points today as more of a fade of a KU team dealing with some issues.
My Pick: TCU +-3

Its been a tough stretch of four games for the Sooners and they are going up against a determined Baylor team after 2 in a row. The biggest factor here today for me is Baylor drilled Oklahoma 77-47 earlier this seaon (January 28), and since then the Sooners have lost by eight to West Virginia, one to Iowa State and 12 to Texas Tech. I expect to see the best version of OU tonight but Ill stick with Baylor here at home as they are simply the better team playing on their home floor. Note the Vegas money is also coming in on the Bears.
My Pick: Baylor +-3.5

Vegas line opened at 5 and line has moved to 8 and now at 7.5. If it goes to 8 again I might lean UCONN and the points. I'm guessing the average joe's started hammering Memphis when they read Jalen Adams was out for UCONN today. UCONN is a veteran team with a deep bench and could surprise in this game. But the Huskies will certainly miss Jalen Adams who was their top scorer (17PPG) and their 3rd best scorer Alterique Gilbert (13PPG) is not likely today. Gilbert has missed last 3 games with a pesky shoulder injury and status uncertain today, you might want to see what he looks like in pre-game warmup.
SOOO UCONN will likely be without their 1st and 3rd best offensive players. That should mean less offensive output for UCONN tonight. The total is set at 155.5 because both of these teams score in buckets. Memphis 80PP and UCONN 77PPG, but I like the UNDER 155.5 tonight. I predict UCONN will run set plays, slow down pace of play and work the ball inside to their big men. And without 2 of 3 of their top scorers you have to expect lower scoring, combined Adams and Gilbert combined for 30 PPG. That's my 2 cents. Best of luck.
My Pick: Under 155.5

Un juego para mas parejo de lo que se ve en las lineas, al menos que la defensa de conneticut permita mas de 80 pts, el visitante es un mejor sembrado con iguales promedios ofensivos y defensivos, asi que me llevo a conneticut cubriendo los puntos y en teaser
A game for more even than what is seen in the lines, unless the conneticut defense allows more than 80 pts, the visitor is a better seeded with equal offensive and defensive averages, so I took to Connecticut covering the points and in teaser
My Pick: Connecticut +8

Top 3 in terms of boards in the NBA against a team where the rookie point guard is the leading rebounder on the team now with around 7 per game. Dallas shot lights out with 20 3's last game and they take a lot of three's every game but rank 20th in terms of makes. Doubt they drop as frequently today and even if they did you're up against a team that can outpace you in that category as well. Blazers baby.

I like the Horns here today on the low line even if it is more of a fade of this really bad WVU team.
My Pick: Texas -3.5

Love Chicago here. Otto Porter will play with a lot of emotion and seems perfectly fit in this Young Bulls starting 5. The Wizards are a laughing stock right now and gave Otto up for a bag of cracker jacks and a coke because they want to dump salary, essentially waiving the white flag. Chcago is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 at home and Washington is 4-0 ATS their last 4. I love this extremes because it tells me some balance is needed. Bulls cover on a Saturday night where the crowd tends to get a little more into it. Might take them on the ML.
My Pick: Chicago +2

Gimme all the money on the bucks at home here. If you can somewhere find them for -3 you jump all over it. The bucks out class the magic in every way. add in the fact that theyre playing at home and are 23-4 there should be more then enough to take them in this spot
My Pick: Milwaukee -3
