I'm all aboard this Murray St. Hype train. There is always one team a year that wears the glass show and it feels like it is them. Murray State is legit. They can rebound and run off of Florida State misses and the Noles wont be able to keep up with Morant. Yes, Florida State is playing for Cofer but that wont help their erratic shooting. Theyll play hard and intense but Murray State beat a very good Marquette team to a pulp. This is a team on a mission.
My Pick: Murray St. +4.5

I'm not ready to buy stock in Murray St until I see how they stack up against top tier competition and that's exactly what they are getting in Florida State. FSU has 10 guys that get playing time and they come out you in waves. And size is going to be another issue for Murray St because Florida State's average height of their starting five is 6' 7". Terance Mann is tall, athletic and one of the best defenders in the country and is going to pose all kinds of problems for Ja Morant. Basketball is team sport and I just don't see Murray St having the supporting cast to be a real threat here today.
My Pick: Florida St. -4.5

Florida State is the better overall team, but I think that Murray State is getting too many points in this one. Florida State is an elite team with recent wins over top ranked Virginia and Virginia but they only have two players who average at least ten points per game so one has to be a bit skeptical about this teams ability to cover point spreads of this magnitude on a neutral site in this game. It is also an NCAA tournament game in which the underdog will have the best player on the court. Intriguing matchup and not getting too heavy here but will put something small on Murray St.
My Pick: Murray St. +4.5

The Racers defeated the Marquette Golden Eagles 83-64 Thursday in their first round matchup. Tevin Brown led Murray State with 19 points, while Ja Morant scored 17 points, handed out 16 assists and pulled down 11 rebounds in the rout of Marquette.
Florida State defeated the Vermont Catamounts on Thursday 76-69 in their first round NCAA Tournament game in the West Region. Mfiondu Kabengele led the Seminoles in the win with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Following the game, Florida State player Paul Cofer was told that his father had died after suffering a long illness. Cofer did not play due to an injured foot and is not expected to play Saturday due to the injury.
Pick Analysis: Murray State has one of the best players in the country and a NBA lottery pick in Ja Morant. The Racers routed the favored Marquette Golden Eagles, while Florida State had a tougher time with Vermont but prevailed. Florida States inside game will be featured against the all-round fine play of Morant who not only scored 17 points in the win Thursday but handed 16 assists. I like the Racers to keep it going, Murray State Racers wins and covers 70-64.
My Pick: Murray St. +5
