    Pannone is God awful and Lynn isn't much better, I think we see a shootout tonight.

    Both Rodriquez and Roark gave up 4 runs in only 3 innings in their last outing, but I think this is a case where both guys are better than their ERA's. I like UNDER 9 here today. San Fran wins a 5-3 type of game.

    My Pick: San Francisco +112 & Under 9 50%

    Davies is one of the best in the business. Poncedeleon has been solid too, I like UNDER 9 in this game....and would lean Milwaukee with you

    Looks like I'm in good company since 100% predict Cincy too. The Hawkeyes have no kind of momentum behind them heading into the tourney. This is old hat for Cincinnati since they've cleared the first round for the last two years. The Hawkeyes are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 NCAA Tournament games and are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Cincinnati Bearcats are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games and are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 NCAA Tournament games and are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win. I can't find a reason to go against Cincy and their power defense.

    My Pick: Cincinnati -4 50%

    Norse is a solid team with a solid record but they aren't as solid on the road. No doubt Tech had some bumps in the road but they started hitting their stride at just the right time. They dropped a few unfortunate games they should have finished but isn't that just about every team. Tech always had a great defense but their offense was lacking in the beginning of the season. They're offense has come along way and will be plenty to get it done against Northern Kentucky. I don't see any situation where Norse can hang with Texas Tech. Their defense will shut off any trickle of offense Norse tries to put together.

    My Pick: Texas Tech -13 50%

    This will probably be a big defensive struggle. The Monarchs lack the ability to generate a ton of points because they struggle to put the ball through the net and are awful on the freethrow line. Purdue is good offensively. Their defense isn't as good but it's good enough to get it done against OD. Eating the points with Purdue.

    My Pick: Purdue -12.5 50%

    This is a match up between a good offensive team in the Matadors and a good defensive team in the Anteaters. The Matadors may have a good offense but they sure struggle on defense. It's been a problem all season. UC Irvine is sizzling with 12 straight wins coming into this one and have locked in for the top seed in the conference tourney. The Anteaters defense, plus being at home, is more than enough reason to think they will cover.

    My Pick: UC Irvine -12 50%

    I am siding with San Diego State in this one. Vegas has been padding the spread with Nevada and they haven't been covering. They have missed the cover in the last 5 games. Part of that may be because their defense hasn't been too effective lately. In their last 3 games they gave up an average of 77 points. San Diego St on the other hand has covered 6 of the last 8 games and have a great defense that will slow down the Wolf Pack. They are allowing only 65 or less points in the last 8 games. I'm taking the Aztecs on the road.

    My Pick: San Diego St. +14 50%

    agree. too many points not to take pacers.

    I gotta take the Cavs to cover ATS on the road tonight against the Orange. Syracuse seems to be having trouble putting up points as of late and aren't as consistent as they typically are. While Virginia isn't an incredibly physical team on the boards they could kill the Orange from the arc if Syracuse isn't quick on the outside. I don't think Syracuse has what it takes to keep a lid on Virginia.

    My Pick: Virginia -6 50%

    I'll take the Clippers against Lebron et al. The Lakers seem to struggle period much less cover a 4 point spread. Am I the only one a little surprised by that number?? Lakers lost 4 of their last 5 games while the Clippers play well ATS and pick up the covers.

    My Pick: Los Angeles +4 50%

    I'm laying the points with Marshall and their power offense. This is a game of high octane offense meets strong defense. North Texas may have a better record at this point but Marshall is playing better basketball right now. Also, in the first game between these two North Texas came out on top so I think Marshall will play hard for the revenge factor.

    My Pick: Marshall +5 50%

    The Wildcats are freefalling and are in last place in the conference. I can't imagine they have much incentive to play hard on the road where they are just 1-8. Illinois is a more talented and better team and have the home court advantage. I'd be surprised if the Wildcats are able to keep this to single digits.

    My Pick: Illinois -5.5 50%

    I'll take Oregon St at home in this one. The Beavers have been pretty good at covering ATS and the Sun Devils aren't covering. Arizona St won the first game against Oregon St but they are too inconsistent for me to take them on the road against a good home team.

    My Pick: Oregon St. -3.5 50%
