|03-23-19||Wofford +6 v. Kentucky||56-62||Push||0||15 h 60 m||Show|
2nd Round NCAA tournament action here on Saturday from Jacksonville, FL has Wofford taking on Kentucky. Wofford got the slight upset win in round one by beating Seton Hall, 84-68 as a 2.5-point dog. It was the Terrier's 21st win in a row and their eighth cover in a row. In fact, the Terriers have now won 30 games on the season. Kentucky is the second seed in this region and they also opened first round action with an easy win over Abilene Christian, 79-44 as a 20-point favorite. The Wildcats though are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games. This is a very good Wofford team that will have upset on their mind on Saturday. I'm taking the points with the Terriers. Play Wofford.
|03-22-19||St. Louis v. Virginia Tech -10||52-66||Win||100||12 h 55 m||Show|
NCAA tourney 1st round action continues here on Friday with action from San Jose, CA as St Louis takes on Virginia Tech. St Louis won the Atlantic 10 conference winning four games in four days and covering three of the four. The Bilikens were 6-2 ATS their last eight games. Virginia Tech lost in the ACC tournament to Florida State in OT, 63-65. The Hokies are 8-3 ATS their last 11 non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last six neutral sites. The Bilikens are just 1-5-1 their last seven against the ACC and I see another ACC loss today for them. Play Virginia Tech.
|03-22-19||Ohio State v. Iowa State -5.5||62-59||Loss||-100||92 h 16 m||Show|
NCAA tourney 1st round action on Friday from Tulsa, OK has Ohio State taking on Iowa State. The Buckeyes won their first Big 10 tourney game by beating Indiana 79-75, but lost the next game to Michigan State, 70-77. They did cover both their Big 10 tourney games. The Buckeyes are just 9-23 ATS their last 32 on a neutral court. In addition, they are 0-8 ATS their last eight in NCAA tourney games and 0-6-1 ATS their last seven vs the Big 12. Iowa State won 23 games in a tough Big 12 conference this year. The Cyclones won the Big 12 tournament by beating Kansas 78-66. They covered all three of their Big 12 tourney games. The Cyclones are also 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last six neutral court games. Iowa State is the much better team and I like them to win here on Friday. Play Iowa State.
|03-22-19||Iona v. North Carolina -22||73-88||Loss||-109||11 h 5 m||Show|
NCAA 1st Round action from Columbus, OH has Iona taking on North Carolina. Iona won its Metro Atlantic conference tournament, beating Monmouth, 81-60. Iona has won 10 straight games and covered eight of its last nine. However, serious upgrade in class today as they take on one of the favorites to win the NCAA tournament, North Carolina. The Tarheels lost to Duke in the ACC tournament, 73-74 as a 3.5-point dog. NCU has covered four straight and seven of the last nine games. North Carolina eats up this level of competition and I'll easily lay the 22-points here with North Carolina.
|03-22-19||Washington v. Utah State -3||78-61||Loss||-105||18 h 6 m||Show|
NCAA 1st Round from Columbus, OH has Washington taking on Utah State. The Huskies lost in the PAC-12 Championship to Oregon, 48-68. They have covered just one of their last seven games. They are also 0-3-1 ATS in their last four non-conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last five neutral site contests. Utah State won the Mountain West tournament, beating San Diego State, 64-57. They finished the season with 10 straight wins and covering seven of their last nine games. Utah State is my pick here tonight over the Huskies. Take Utah State.
|03-22-19||Oregon +2 v. Wisconsin||72-54||Win||100||16 h 59 m||Show|
Oregon won the PAC-12 Championship, beating Washington quite handily, 68-48. The Ducks cruised through the PAC-12 tourney, winning an covering all four of their games. The Ducks have now covered eight straight games and won eight straight. Wisconsin lost in the Big 10 tournament to Michigan State, 55-67. The Badgers were also 2-4 ATS their last six and 2-7-1 ATS their last 10 games. The Ducks have covered their last five games on a neutral court and I look for Oregon to cover here tonight. Play Oregon.
|03-22-19||Iowa v. Cincinnati -3.5||Top||79-72||Loss||-105||83 h 44 m||Show|
NCAA tourney first round action from Columbus, OH has Iowa taking on Cincinnati. Iowa won its opening Big 10 tourney game against Illinois, but lost the next time out to Michigan, 53-74. The Hawkeyes did not finish the season strong, losing five of their last six games and going 1-9 ATS their last 10 games. Now they have to face a very good Cincinnati team that won 28 games on the season. The Bearcats won the American Athletic conference title with a big upset of favored Houston, 69-57. The Bearcats jumped out to an early lead and never gave it back. Cincinnati is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games. Small price to lay here with a Cincy team that not only won 28 games but won their conference championship against one of the best in the country in Houston. I'm laying the points here with Cincinnati.
|03-21-19||Baylor v. Syracuse -2||78-69||Loss||-110||69 h 30 m||Show|
NCAA tourney 1st round action from Salt Lake City, UT has Baylor playing Syracuse. Baylor was an early exit in the Big 12 tournament, losing to Iowa State, 66-83. The Bears are 0-3 ATS their last three games and 2-6 ATS their last eight games. They have also covered just one of their last six NCAA tourney games and are 1-4 ATS in their last five vs the ACC conference. Syracuse won their ACC opener with a win over Pitt, 73-59 and then lost to eventual No 1 overall seed Duke, 72-84. The Orange are 4-0 ATS in their last four NCAA tourney games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven vs the Big 12. They are also 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight on a neutral court. This game is basically a pick the winner type game and for me that's on Syracuse.
|03-21-19||Seton Hall +3.5 v. Wofford||68-84||Loss||-107||68 h 8 m||Show|
Seton Hall came oh so close to winning the Big East tournament, losing to Villanova in the championship game, 72-74. If you watched that game, the you saw Seton Hall get some pretty bad calls against them. My feeling is that the Pirates could and should have won that game. The Pirates have covered their last five games. and are 19-7-1 ATS their last 27 on a neutral court. Now they take on Wofford. The Terriers won the Southern Conference Championship by beating UNC Greensboro, 70-58. The Terriers finished the season at 29-4, but they did play in a smaller conference. It's difficult to pass on the points here with Seton Hall. They play in a much tougher conference and really could have won that tournament. I don't trust this Wofford team against this caliber of team. I'm taking the points with Seton Hall.
|03-21-19||St. Mary's +5 v. Villanova||57-61||Win||100||66 h 16 m||Show|
NCAA first round action from Hartford, CT has St Mary's taking on Villanova. St Mary's is only here by virtue of their beating mighty Gonzaga in the West Coast Championship game, 60-47 as 14-point dogs. The Gael's previously had lost to the Zags by 48 points before their mighty upset. The Gaels have also done well vs the Big East, going 6-0 ATS their last six vs the conference. St Mary's is also 4-1 ATS in their last five neutral site games. Villanova won the Big East by beating Seton Hall 74-72. The Cats got some good calls in that game and really could have easily lost to Seton Hall. The defending Champs are just 1-3 ATS in their last four games and 3- 6 ATS their last nine. This Villanova team is well coached, but not quite as good as previous editions. I'm taking the points here with St Marys.
|03-21-19||Florida +2.5 v. Nevada||70-61||Win||100||65 h 24 m||Show|
Nevada has me worried because of how they just ran out of gas in the Mountain West conference tournament. The Wolfpack were the best team in that conference, but lost 56-65 to San Diego State. Problem with this Wolfpack team is that they are not deep into their bench and their starters might be wearing down a bit late in the season. That's a good reason they scored just 56 vs San Diego State. The Wolfpack also covered just one time in their last eight games. Moreover, they are 16-33-3 ATS their last 52 on a neutral site. Florida won its first two SEC conference tourney games before losing to Auburn, 62-65. The Gators did cover their four games. They are also 5-0 ATS in their last five neutral site games. I'm taking the points here with Florida as I believe Nevada is running on fumes at this point of the season. Play Florida.
|03-21-19||Belmont +3.5 v. Maryland||77-79||Win||100||22 h 13 m||Show|
NCAA 1st Round action here on Thursday has Belmont taking on Maryland. Belmont won their play-in game on Tuesday, beating Temple, 81-70. That was their 27th win of the season. The Bruins have been hot, going 12-3-1 ATS their last 16 games. They are also 13-5 ATS in their last 18 non-conference games. Maryland was 22-10 S/U on the season and lost their Big 10 tourney opener against Nebraska, 61-69. It was the team's third loss in four games. In addition they are just 1-3 ATS their last four. The Terapins are also 2-6 ATS their last eight games on a neutral court and 1-6 ATS their last seven in the NCAA Tournament. I'm going to take the points here with a very hot Belmont club.
|03-20-19||Arizona State -1.5 v. St. John's||74-65||Win||100||10 h 3 m||Show|
NCAA 1st Round action play-in game has Arizona State taking on St Johns. ASU finished with a 22-10 S/U record and lost to Oregon in the PAC-12 Tourney, 75-79 in OT. The Sun Devils played the Pac-12 Champion very well and could have won that game. They have covered three of the last four games and are 5-3 ATS their last eight games. St Johns ended with a 21-12 S/U on the season. The Red Storm lost in the Big East tourney to Marquette, 54-86. They lost four of their last five games to finish the season both S/U and ATS. The Red Storm was 2-5 ATS their last seven games. St Johns is also 0-5 ATS their last five times in the NCAA tournament and 5-11 ATS their last 16 on a neutral court. ASU just the better team at this point in the season. Take Arizona State.
|03-20-19||Butler v. Nebraska -5||76-80||Loss||-115||44 h 36 m||Show|
NIT first round action has Butler playing at Nebraska. The Bulldogs of Butler went out in their opening Big East tourney game, losing big to Providence, 57-80. The Bulldogs have not done well at just 16-16 on the season. They have also gone just 1-5 ATS over their last six games. They are also 9-23 ATS in their last 32 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven non-conference games. Nebraska is 18-16 S/U and 15-16 ATS on the season. The Cornhuskers won their first two Big 10 games beating Rutgers and Maryland before losing to Wisconsin, 62-66. They covered all three conference tourney games and their last four overall. Nebraska is 23-9 ATS over their last 32 games and 15-5-1 ATS their last 21 non-conference games. I like the host here today, play Nebraska.
|03-19-19||Dayton v. Colorado -4||73-78||Win||100||10 h 37 m||Show|
NIT 1st Round action tonight has Colorado hosting Dayton. Dayton will be treated to the high altitude tonight in Boulder Co, something they may not have experienced much before. Dayton lost in their conference quarterfinals to St Louis, 55-64. Colorado lost in the PAC-12 tourney to Washington, 61-66. Dayton has only covered three of their last 10 vs a team with a win percentage of 60% or better. They are also 0-4 ATS in their last four non-conference games. Meanwhile, Colorado is 6-1 ATS at home in their last seven games. And, they are 8-2 ATS their last 10 games vs a team with a winning record. I don't see much motivation for Dayton here tonight. Plus the altitude should tire them out pretty quick. I'm taking the host, Colorado.
|03-19-19||Belmont v. Temple +3.5||81-70||Loss||-110||8 h 52 m||Show|
NCAA 1st Round Play-In action has Belmont taking on Temple today. Belmont had an excellent season in the Southern Conference, going 26-5, though they lost to Murray State in their tournament, 65-77. They only faced a couple of decent teams in non-conference plays, beating UCLA and losing to Purdue. The Bruins are just 2-5 ATS on neutral courts their last seven tries. They are also 2-5 ATS in their last 7 NCAA tournament games. Temple had a excellent season going 23-9 S/U. The Owls lost their first conference tourney game to Wichita State, 74-80. Still, the Owls do pretty good on neutral court sites, goign 14-6 ATS their last 20. Issue here is that we have Belmont from a small conference going against Temple that is used to playing much tougher competition. They had to play teams like Cincinnati, Houston and U Conn this year. Yet, Temple is a dog and that makes no sense to me. I'm taking Temple and looking for an outright Owls win. Take Temple.
|03-18-19||Pacers v. Blazers -4.5||Top||98-106||Win||100||8 h 57 m||Show|
Portland has been one of the better covering teams in the NBA of late. The Blazers did fail to cover last time out at San Antonio, but that was the second of a back-to-back spot and they were in a tough situation in that game. Portland has covered nine of their last 13 games overall. They are also 38-18 ATS their last 56 home games and 12-4 ATS their last 16 against a team with a winning straight up record. The Pacers are not nearly as good a covering team. In fact, they are just 1-4 ATS their last five eon the road and 2-7 ATS their last nine against a team with a win percentage above 60%. Portland has also covered seven of the last eight meetings with the Pacers. Moreover, they are 5-1 ATS their last six at Portland against Indiana. I like the host here tonight. Take Portland.
|03-17-19||Hawks v. Magic -7.5||91-101||Win||100||5 h 20 m||Show|
The Orlando Magic are just 1-game out of a playoff spot in the NBA East as they sit 9th behind Miami. That makes games like today very important against an opponent that won't make the playoffs in Atlanta. The Magic Have won nine of their last 15 games. They are coming off a blowout win at home over Cleveland, 120-91 as a 8.5-point favorite. Atlanta won't be in the postseason, but they can put a speed bump in the Magic chances here today. The Hawks are coming off a loss at Boston, 120-129 as a 10.5-point dog. The Hawks have been covering of late, going 4-0 their last four games and 6-0 their last six road games. However, the Magic have covered six of their last eight at home. Motivation is a big factor here today and that all sides on the Orlando bench. Play Orlando.
|03-17-19||Michigan +1 v. Michigan State||60-65||Loss||-109||13 h 26 m||Show|
Big 10 Championship today and it should be a good one as No 10 Michigan takes on No 6 Michigan State. No doubt both these teams are heading to the NCAA tourament, but the liekly winner of this game should garner a No 1 seed in the NCAA tourney. Michigan had little trouble with Minnesota on Saturday, trouncing the Gophers from the opening tip and easily winning 76-49 as a 9-point favorite. The Wolverines have covered both of their Big 10 tourney games and four of the last five games. They are also 8-4 ATS their last 12 games. The Wolverines have been a great neutral site team, going 40-18-4 ATS their last 62 times. They are also 24-9-1 ATS their last 34 games vs a team with a winning percentage above 60%. The Michigan State Spartans also had an easy time on Saturday, cruising to a 67-55 win over Wisconsin as a 5.5-point favorite. Unlike their intrastate rivals, the Spartans are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games. The Spartans are only a 1-point favorite here and I am going to take the Wolverines in this one. Take Michigan.
|03-17-19||Cincinnati v. Houston -4||Top||69-57||Loss||-110||13 h 8 m||Show|
American Athletic Championship here from Memphis, TN as Cincinnati takes on Houston. Both of these teams will be going to the NCAA tourney, but a higher seed is at stake here today. The Cincinnati Bearcats are 27-6 on the season after beating Southern Miss and Wichita State in the tourney. Unfortunately the Bearcats are not a good covering team, evidenced by their 1-8-1 ATS mark their last 10 games. Meanwhile, Houston is 31-2 on the season and 20-11 ATS. The Cougars crushed a decent U Conn team to start the AAC tourney, 84-45 and then narrowly got by the host team Memphis, 61-58 yesterday. unlike Cincy, the Cougars are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 neutral site games and 10-4 ATS their last 14 against a team with a winning percentage above 60%. Houston has covered the last four in this series and I expect that again here on Sunday. Play Houston.
|03-16-19||Blazers v. Spurs -2||103-108||Win||100||9 h 41 m||Show|
Portland playing in the second of a back-to-back spot here tonight. The Blazers had to play at New Orleans last night and then travel to San Antonio for tonight's contest. That's never easy on any team. The Blazers are in fourth in the West and just a half-game back of Houston for third. Portland has been a good covering team, but not in this spot, going just 2-5 ATS the last seven on no days of rest. The Spurs are in 6th place in the West, but just a half game from being in 8th place. Both the Jazz and Clippers breathing down their back right now. The Spurs are 4-1 ATS their last five at home. In addition, they are 12-4 ATS their last 16 games against a team with a win percent of 60% or better. The Spurs are 9-3 ATS their last 12 meetings with Portland at San Antonio. I'm taking the home team here, play San Antonio.
|03-16-19||Florida State +8 v. Duke||Top||63-73||Loss||-103||9 h 41 m||Show|
ACC Championship game here late this evening has Florida State and Duke squaring-off. Both these clubs will make the NCAA tournament, but Duke can pretty much assure themselves a #1 seed with a win tonight. Florida State might have something to say about that. The Seminoles are now 27-6 S/U on the season. They have won and covered both their ACC tourney games, including yesterday's win over a very good Virginia team, 69-59. The Seminoles were a 9-point dog to Virginia and scored one of the big upsets of the tourney thus far. FSU is now 8-1-2 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games. Meanwhile, Duke just got past North Carolina yesterday, 74-73 as a 4-point favorite. The Tarheels failed to cover the spread. They are 0-3-1 ATS their last four games. Florida State has covered its last four games against Duke. The 8-points FSU is getting looks awfully good to me right now. I'm taking Florida State in a low scoring, close game.
|03-16-19||Seton Hall +4.5 v. Villanova||72-74||Win||100||7 h 44 m||Show|
Big East Conference Championship here today. Seton Hall would like to win to assure themselves a spot in the NCAA tournament, while Villanova likely to go either way. Seton Hall has won it's two tourney games thus far with wins over Georgetown and Marquette. The Pirates have also covered four in a row now. Seton Hall also does well on neutral sites, evidenced by their 18-7-1 ATS mark their last 26 times on the court. Villanova is also 2-0 in tourney play with wins over Providence and then yesterday's OT win over Xavier, 71-67. Have to wonder if the Cats aren't a bit gassed for this one after playing two straight days plus an OT yesterday. Seton Hall getting 4.5-points here plus likely has a bit more motivation to win this game than Villanova does. I'm taking Seton Hall plus the points.
|03-16-19||Minnesota +9.5 v. Michigan||49-76||Loss||-106||4 h 37 m||Show|
: Both of these clubs heading to the NCAA tournament. Minnesota is 21-12 S/U and 18-15 ATS on the season. They have opening Big 10 tourney wins over Penn State, 77-72 in OT and Purdue yesterday, 75-73 as a 10-point dog upset. The Gophers have covered four of their last five games. Michigan won't be a #1 seed in the tourney, but should be ranked high. The Wolverines opened their tourney with a win over Iowa yesterday, 74-53 as a 7.5-point favorite. Michigan is laying 9-points here today to the Gophers. Michigan the better team, but this Gopher team has already pulled one upset. I look for them to keep this game close. Play Minnesota.
|03-16-19||Wisconsin v. Michigan State -5||55-67||Win||100||1 h 13 m||Show|
Two Big 10 clubs heading to the NCAA tourney meet here today as No 19 Wisconsin meets No 6 Michigan State. Wisconsin didn't have an easy time yesterday, just getting by Nebraska 66-62 as a 8-point favorite. The Badgers are now 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games (all Big 10). The Spartans improved to 26-6 yesterday with an opening win over Ohio State, 77-70. Michigan State a likely #1 seed in the NCAA tournament. The Spartans have covered six of their last nine games. They are also 15-6 ATS in their last 21 Big 10 games and 18-5 ATS their last 23 vs a team with a winning straight up record. Michigan State is 11-5 ATS vs the Badgers the last 16 meetings. Take Michigan State here today.
|03-15-19||Fresno State +4 v. Utah State||60-85||Loss||-110||10 h 25 m||Show|
Mountain West Semifinals here have Fresno State taking on Utah State. Fresno improved to 23-8 S/U after their straight-up win and cover in game one of the tourney over Air Force, 76-50. The Bulldogs are a very good covering team at 20-10 ATS overall this year. In addition, they are 4-0 on a neutral site and 4-1 ATS in their last five games. Utah State improved to 26-6 S/U and 15-14 ATS with their win yesterday over New Mexico, 91-83. They did fail to cover though, their second failure in a row. The Aggies are only 2-5 ATS their last seven against a team that wins 60% or more of it's games. They are also just 3-7 ATS their last 10 against a team with a winning straight up record. Two very good teams here, but Fresno just covers too well to pass on the points. Take Fresno State.
|03-15-19||Duke -3 v. North Carolina||74-73||Loss||-110||8 h 27 m||Show|
Two longtime rivals meet here in the ACC Semfinals. No 5 Duke is now 27-5 S/U and 18-14 ATS after their opening tourney win over Syracuse, 84-72. No 3 ranked North Carolina is also 27-5 S/U and 21-10 ATS on the season. The Tarheels opened tourney play with a win over Louisville, 83-70. These clubs met twice previously this year with NCU taking both over the Blue Devils. That's difficult enough, but now you are asking NCU to take three over one of the best teams in the country. There is a reason that Duke is a small favorite here and I have to agree. Take Duke to get some payback here tonight. Play Duke.
|03-15-19||Blazers -7.5 v. Pelicans||122-110||Win||100||7 h 39 m||Show|
Portland is 4th right now in the West with a 41-26 record, just 1/2 game behind third place Houston. The Blazers have won two straight and are 8-3 S/U their last 11 games. In addition, they are 8-3 ATS their last 11 games. Portland has also covered seven of their last eight on the road and are 6-0 ATS their last six on the road against a winning home team. New Orleans will not make the playoffs this year in a competitive West with just a 30-40 record. They are 9 1/2 games behind the 8th place Clippers and would have to jump over three teams. The Pelicans have lost four straight games, both S/U and ATS. Portland would like to get into third place and to do that they need to beat losing teams like today. Play Portland.
|03-15-19||Hornets v. Wizards -3||116-110||Loss||-109||6 h 39 m||Show|
Charlotte has lost two straight games and four of its last five. Plus, the Hornets have not covered now in their last five games and are just 3-11-1 ATS their last 15 games. Not so for the hot Wizards, as they have won four of their last five games and covered six straight. The Wizards are also 9-3 ATS in their last 12 vs the Southeast division and 5-0 ATS in their last five vs a team with a losing record. The Hornets are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 1-4 ATS vs the Eastern Conference their last five games. The Wizards have covered six of the last seven in this series at Washington. In addition, the home team has covered seven of the last nine meetings. I like Washington here tonight.
|03-15-19||Florida State v. Virginia -8.5||69-59||Loss||-110||6 h 46 m||Show|
It's a meeting of two ranked teams here in the ACC conference tournament as No 13 Florida State takes on No 2 Virginia. Florida State played an OT game yesterday in their first conf tourney playoff, beating Virginia Tech 65-63 as a 1-point favorite. The Seminoles have now covered two of their last three, but are only 2-4 ATS their last six. Virginia is one of the best if not the best defensive team in basketball. The Cavaliers are 29-2 S/U and 22-8 on the season. The Cavs opened with a 76-56 win over NC State yesterday as 11.5-point favorite. The Cavs have now covered six of their last seven games. In addition, both of the Cavs losses this year have both come to Duke. Virginia is 25-10-1 ATS their last 36 conference games and 43-17-1 ATS their last 61 overall games. Don't look for FSU to get a lot of points here against this stingy Cavs defense. I'm going to lay the points here with the Cavs as they have been covering consistently. Play Virginia.
|03-15-19||Nebraska v. Wisconsin -8||Top||62-66||Loss||-109||2 h 11 m||Show|
Big 10 Conference Quarters here have Nebraska taking on Wisconsin. Nebraska opened this conference with a pair of win. First they beat Rutgers 68-61 and then yesterday defeated Maryland 69-61, covering both games. In fact, they have now covered their last three games. Wisconsin is 22-9 on the season and 17-13 ATS. The Badgers are well rested coming into this game as they have had four days off to prepare. Compare that to the Huskers who are playing their third game in three nights. It's tough for some of these teams playing all these games in a row without any time off. Not so for Wisconsin and like a well rested team against a tired team. That's what we have here tonight. Take Wisconsin.
|03-14-19||Texas v. Kansas -2.5||Top||57-65||Win||100||12 h 35 m||Show|
Big 12 Conference quarterfinals from Kansas City, MO has Texas taking on Kansas. Texas finished the regular season at 16-15 S/U and 15-16 ATS. Texas has lost two straight and four of their last five games. They also have failed to cover their last two games. Kansas will make the NCAA either way with their 23-8 S/U record. The Jayhawks were only 14-17 ATS on the season. They did cover five of their last eight games though. These teams split the two games on the season. However, I like Kansas here tonight laying a small number of 2.5 or 3-points. Take 17th ranked Kansas tonight.
|03-14-19||Georgetown v. Seton Hall -2.5||57-73||Win||100||11 h 26 m||Show|
Big East quarterfinals tonight has Georgetown taking on Seton Hall. Georgetown is 19-12 S/U and 13-17 ATS on the season. The Hoyas have won three of their last four games both S/U and ATS.

San Diego Toreros have won three straight in the conference tourney against Portland, Santa Clara and then BYU. The Toreros had to play three games in a row before getting last night off to rest. They have also covered all three in this tournament. St Mary's is playing its first game in the tournament tonight and in fact hasn't played since March 2nd. That's a long layoff and I have to believe that too much time off can have some rust setting in. The Gaels are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine neutral site games and 2-6 ATS in their last eight West Coast conference games. I'm taking San Diego here tonight as I believe the long layoff will hurt St Marys. Play San Diego.

Atlanta Hawks haven't won two straight games since early in February. They will try again here tonight after beating Chicago last time out, 123-118. The Hawks don't usually do well after a straight-up win, evidenced by their 2-7 ATS mark their last nine times after a S/u win. They are also 5-11 ATS their last 16 after covering the prior game. But what concerns me most is that the Hawks are playing the second of a back-to-back spot here tonight and they are 2-8 ATS their last 10 in this spot. Miami had yesterday off after beating Brooklyn on Saturday 117-88. They have covered three straight and five of their last seven.

The Badgers are just 1-4 ATS in their last five games. Penn State is 7-1 ATS in their last eight trips to Wisconsin and the dog is 12-3 ATS in the last 15 overall meetings. I like the road dog here today, play Penn State.
|03-01-19||Rhode Island v. Dayton -7||72-70||Loss||-110||8 h 58 m||Show|
Atlantic 10 conference play here today has Rhode Island at Dayton. The Rhode Island Rams are just 13-14 S/U and 9-17 ATS on the season. The Rams are just 1-5 S/U and ATS their last six games. The Rams are coming off a spread win, but that's not necessarily good news as they are just 3-10 ATS their last 13 coming off that spread win. They are also 0-4 ATS their last four road games and 1-5 ATS their last six against the conference. The Dayton Flyers are looking for that 20th win tonight as they sit at 19-9 S/U and 13-13 ATS on the season. The Flyers have covered three straight and four of the last five. Dayton laying 7.5-points here tonight, while my own numbers have Dayton closer to 10. I like the home team here, play Dayton.
|03-01-19||Quinnipiac -1 v. St. Peter's||77-60||Win||100||8 h 57 m||Show|
Metro Atlantic play here today has the Quinnipiac Bobcats at the St Peters Peacocks. The Bobcats are 15-12 S/U and 15-11 ATS on the season.

Some bonus play tonight in Conference USA has Marshall playing at Louisiana Tech. Marshall is 14-13 S/U and just 7-18 ATS on the season. The Herd has lost four of their last five and seven of nine. They are on a terrible cover streak, going 0-10 ATS their last 10 and 2-13-1 ATS their last 16. Louisiana Tech is 18-10 S/U and 16-10 ATS on the season. The Rajin Cajuns have won three straight and four straight vs the number. This looks like a big mismatch as the host should not be very hospitable tonight. Play Louisiana Tech in a blowout.
|02-28-19||Texas State -5.5 v. Troy State||58-44||Win||100||6 h 37 m||Show|
Sun Belt conference matchup has one of their best in Texas State playing at Troy State. The Texas State Bobcats are 22-6 S/U and 14-10 ATS on the season. However, because this is a minor conference, you almost have to expect the Bobcats to win their conference or they won't make the NCAA. They conclude the regular season with three straight road games at Troy, South Alabama and Texas Arlington. The Cats are 18-7-1 ATS their last 26 road games. The Troy Trojans won't be going anywhere this postseason. They are just 11-15 S/U and 8-15 ATS. The Trojans have lost three straight both S/U and ATS. In fact they are just 1-6-1 ATS their last 8 and 3-11-1 ATS their last 15. Texas State should easily win this one tonight. Play Texas State.
|02-28-19||Nebraska v. Michigan -11.5||53-82||Win||100||6 h 37 m||Show|
Big 10 clash here has Nebraska playing at No 9 Michigan. The Huskers might make a minor tourney but other than that, they are playing their last three regular season games. They face Michigan today, Michigan State and Iowa. The Huskers could easily lose all three and end up 15-16 on the season. Nebraska is just 2-9 ATS their last 11 vs the Big 10 and 0-4 ATS in their last four road games. Michigan is 24-4 S/U and 15-12 ATS on the season. The Wolverines are coming off a home loss to Michigan State, 70-77. Still, Michigan is 6-2 ATS the last eight home games and 35-15-1 ATS the last 51 Big 10 games. Michigan has covered five of the last 7 in this series and I expect that here tonight. Play Michigan.
|02-27-19||Florida -4 v. Vanderbilt||71-55||Win||100||8 h 20 m||Show|
SEC Matchup that finds Florida struggling to get a postseason bid. The Gators might not settle for a NIT or lesser tournament. The NCAA might be too far off for a team with a 16-11 record. The Gators have four games left, but with a road game at Kentucky, it looks like a tough road to 20. Still, the Gators should have little trouble with 9-18 Vandy here tonight. The Commodores are just 9-23 ATS in their last 32 home games and 2-12 ATS their last 14 after covering a game. The road team has covered seven of the last nine in this series and that's what I'm on here tonight. Play Florida.

|02-27-19||Wizards v. Nets -5.5||Top||125-116||Loss||-101||7 h 56 m||Show|
Reason: Washington not having the kind of season they are used to having with just a 24-36 record. The Wizards are 0-2-1 ATS their last three games and 2-6-1 ATS their last nine games. In addition, they are 4-23 ATS their last 27 road games vs a winning team. Brooklyn has a winning record at 32-30 and is also 35-27 ATS on the season. They have covered four of their last five games and are 12-5 ATS their last 17 vs a team with a straight-up losing record. The Nets are 5-0 ATS their last five vs the Wizards in Brooklyn.

|02-26-19||Magic -7.5 v. Knicks||103-108||Loss||-106||8 h 15 m||Show|
The Orlando Magic are not having a winning season, but they are having a better season with a 28-33 record and 32-6-3 ATS mark. The Magic have covered 6 of their last 7 games. They are also 4-0 ATS in their last four road games and 13-3-1 their last 17 vs the Atlantic division. Today they face the reeling Knicks. The Knicks have just 12 wins this season against 48 losses. They are also 26-32-2 ATS on the season. The Knicks are 3-6 ATS their last nine games. They are also 1-6 ATS their last seven home games vs a team with a losing road record. The Knicks are not near as good as the Magic and while I don't like laying 7.5-points on the road with the Magic, I will today against this terrible New York team. Play Orlando.
|02-26-19||St. Louis v. VCU -9.5||65-71||Loss||-109||8 h 11 m||Show|
Atlantic 10 action here has St Louis at VCU. St Louis is having a decent year and could break into the 20 win mark as they currently sit at 17-10 with four games left. However, unless they win their conference tourney it's highly unlikely the Bilikens will make the NCAA tournament. The Bilikens are also just 11-16 ATS on the season with a 4-8 ATS road mark. The VCU Rams look to be one of the elite in this conference and do look destined for a NCAA berth. The Rams are 21-6 S/U and 18-6 ATS on the season. In addition, the Rams are 9-3 ATS at home 10-1 ATS their last 11 vs the Atlantic 10 conference. I like the home team here this evening. Play VCU.

Oklahoma travels to No. 19 Iowa State for a Big 12 contest here on Monday. The Sooners have won two straight games and improved to 17-10. If the Sooners can win three of their last four games they can hit that magic 20 game win number. However, that will be tough with games at Iowa State and Kansas State. Oklahoma is now 17-7-3 ATS their last 23 games and 8-1-3 ATS their last 12 road games. Iowa State can hit that 20 game win number here tonight. The Cyclones are 19-8 S/U and 15-11 ATS on the season. Iowa State has lost two straight games coming into tonight, both S/U and ATS. The Cyclones are now 1-5 ATS their last six overall (all in Big 12). Oklahoma getting 9-points here tonight.

California Bears having a horrible season with just five wins and 21 losses. The Bears are also just 8-18 ATS on the season and 4-7 ATS on the road. The Bears have lost EVERY Pac-12 conference game this season. In addition they are 0-3 ATS their last three and 3-10 ATS their last 13 games. Arizona State is 18-8 S/U and 12-12 ATS on the season. The Sun Devils have won two straight and three of their last four. They have also covered two straight and three of four. Last time these clubs met in Cal, the Bears lost 66-80 as 8.5-point home dogs. Cal just too bad a team to ever back this season. I like the home club in a blowout. Play Arizona State.

The Magic have won 5-1 both S/U and ATS their last six games. The Magic are also 6-1 ATS in their last seven games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games vs the Eastern Conference. Toronto arguably the best team in the East with a 44-16 S/U and 26-32-2 ATS mark. However, as good as the Raptors are, they don't cover spreads very well. The Raptors are just 1-4 ATS their last five at home and 1-6 vs the NBA Southwest their last seven tries. They are also 0-4 in their last four overall and 5-11 their last 16 vs a team with a losing S/U record. The Magic are 3-0-1 ATS their last four in this series. The Magic have been covering and the Raptors have not. I'll take the points here with the road dog. Play Orlando.
