Tough one yesterday… Somehow, I missed badly all around. Just one of my picks hit, and it couldn’t have been closer. We move on from that performance, and on to another day. Here is my picks for today. Overall Record: 16-12
Notre Dame ML (-390)
Iona ML (-284)
Gonzaga 1H (-7.5)
Bryant ML (-265)
Flyers ML (-260)
Hurricanes ML (-196)
Notre Dame faces off against Wake Forest tonight. Neither of these teams have had very good seasons, but one team had a much better season than the other. That is why I like Notre Dame taking this game fairly comfortably.
Iona has been playing good basketball, winning 6 of their last 8 games, while Quinnipiac has lost 3 of their last 4. I like the hot teams in March, and that’s why I like Iona in this game.
Gonzaga has not lost this season, and they are the best team in the country. BYU has had a good season, sitting at 20-5, but there is just a huge difference in skill level of these teams. I like Gonzaga to come out hot, and make scoring a difficult task for BYU.
Bryant not only has been playing great, but they also get back 2 of their 3 best scorers for the game tonight. If Bryant was without them, I may be taking St. Mary’s in this matchup, considering St. Mary’s stellar defense. Bryant’s offense will be too much for St. Mary’s, and will come away with the win.
Hurricanes are playing insane right now. The Predators are not only a poor team, but are also dealing with multiple injuries. Ride Canes winning this one easily, even take the spread if you’re feeling extra greedy.
The Sabres have been a bad team this year, and especially bad on the road. Flyers should be able to win this one comfortably with how these two teams have been trending this season.
