    Smyly was roughed up in his last start against Baltimore and the A's should be favored here but getting +175 on Texas is worth the risk. I like the hot offense of the Rangers here even if it is more of a value bet today.

    My Pick: Texas +176

    Let's drop the hammer on the Rangers tonight. Minor has been a cash machine. Skaggs has given up 14 runs in his last 14 innings of work. Texas continues their run with 5 straight wins, Texas +111 is best bet on the board tonight.

    My Pick: Texas +111

    If the Houston Rockets beat the Golden State Warriors tonight, we would be set for the greatest day of basketball in history. Include G.O.T and maybe the greatest day of TV in history.

    If the Rockets win, there will be 3 Game 7s on Sunday:

    HOU @ GSW at 3:30 EST
    PHI @ TOR at 7:00 EST
    POR @ DEN 10:30 EST

    I think Portland finds a way to survive and force another Game 7 situation for the Nuggets.

    My Pick: Portland -4

    Two of the leagues more potent offenses, but with this being a pivotal game in the series, there should be more of an impact from their defenses buckling down. Not to mention, the under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams.

    My Pick: Under 221

    The Spurs have put up a fight but I like the Nuggets at home. The difference for me in this game is Jokic, Spurs just don't have an answer for him inside and Nuggets are 34-7 at home. I think it's close for 3 quarters and Denver opens it up in the 4th and wins 110-102 type of game

    My Pick: Denver -6

    no opinion on that, I put a small bet on unders tonight. Utah can't score against this defense

    Harden can go off against any defense. I expect him to shoot a ton tonight to redeem himself from the last game and Harden can get his shot when he wants it

    The Nets rely heavily on three-point shooting so if they arent falling, I don't see them being able to compete in this game. Even without Embiid, Philadelphia has the more experienced team and more offensive output. Home court gives Philly the edge in Game 1

    My Pick: Philadelphia -5.5

    I took TCU in the semi-finals against Texas and that was a mistake and while Lipscomb has had a great season and has talent, I just think Texas has the better overall talent and playing some of their best ball of the season right now. ASUN conference vs. Big 12? Simple answer.

    My Pick: Texas -1.5

    Hard not to like TCU in this game. TCU has looked like a rejuvenated team in this tournament. They have won by at least 13 points in all three games which included a 71-58 win against Creighton in the 2nd round. And going back to Bis 12 conference play, the Frogs defeated the Longhorns in both meetings this season. They limited Texas to 61 points in the first meeting, and only 56 points in the second battle. Also, TCU has the offensive and rebounding advantage and I give a slight defensive edge to Texas. But without 6' 11" Jaxson Hayes (who is sitting out for the NBA draft) I think the defensive edge is negligible. I've got TCU winning the whole enchilada.

    My Pick: TCU -1.5

    DePaul is locked in offensively, averaging an eye popping 96 PPG in their three games in this tournament. USF has a solid defense but they have struggled scoring, putting up only 66 and 56 points respectively in their last two games. And the Blue Demons are the bigger team here and have out-rebounded their opponents in all three games and should be able to dominate USF on the boards. Too much offensive fire power from DePaul, I'll take the hotter offensive team and the free bucket.

    My Pick: DePaul +2

    The Colorado Buffaloes are capable of winning this game, and they enter this contest playing extremely well, which includes allowing just 39 percent shooting in their last five games and winning those games by an average of 7.2 points. Texas has held up pretty well in the NIT without Jaxson Hayes in the lineup but Colorado has size with Tyler Bey and Lucas Siewert and I think that proposes problems for the Horns in the paint. This game could go either way IMO, I like the points.

    My Pick: Colorado +5.5

    TCU appears to be playing better than they have all season, but don't be fooled by the 16 point win over Nebraska. Nebraska was missing 4 key players for that game and compounded problems by not shooting the ball very well in that game. I watched TCU all season and they are not a very good team. Creighton is a high flying team with more size and a much better offense. I actually think Vegas has the wrong team favored in this matchup. Give me Creighton +4 and sprinkle some on the money line at +125.

    My Pick: Creighton +4
