Matt’s ATS dips below .500 for the first time this season. I am 30-31 against the spread. Let’s clean this up right quick with picks for Saturday, February 15th.
Give me Memphis +3 1/2. The Memphis guards saved the day against Gonzaga and Ryan Boatright hasn’t looked right for UCONN.
Oklahoma +3 1/2 at Oklahoma State. Marcus Smart is not the only player the Cowboys are missing.
VCU +4 at St. Louis. I picked St. Louis as a favorite recently in LaSalle and that killed me. They won, but didn’t cover. I sense a likely scenario here as VCU plays for its tournament life. I actually hope St. Louis loses so that it’s a greater sleeper in the NCAA Tournament.
Green Bay +3 1/2 at Cleveland State. Green Bay is one of my super sleepers this year.
Tennessee missed a golden opportunity to get into the tournament with a home game against Florida. I’m not counting them out just yet and taking them +2 at Missouri.
I love Duke as a potential Elite 8 team. However, 13 points is too large a spread hosting Maryland. I’d take Dez Wells to cover that himself.
I’m going to stick to my guns as I feel invested with Ohio State. I will take the Buckeyes -3 1/2 in Illinois. If they can’t win there, there really are serious issues in Columbus.
The nightcap, in my mind, is a no-brainer. Florida is the new vogue choice to win the national championship, much like Louisville last year. I will confidently take them +3 in Kentucky.
