Via the opening weekend, we’re 17-13 on the performs and whereas that may be a little disappointing by my very own requirements, I’m happy that it isn’t the opposite means round. We are actually down to simply 16 groups, and oh how candy it’s. Let’s check out the Thursday video games and see what we are able to do with them.
Arkansas at Gonzaga
Gonzaga has not seemed nice on this event. Within the first two video games they performed, each had been somewhat regarding with the primary half of the sport earlier than they turned it on within the second half and took management. This workforce doesn’t care about overlaying, however they care about profitable. I do assume it is a powerful matchup for Arkansas (and, sure, that’s a fairly apparent assertion contemplating that Gonzaga is the #1 total workforce), however I don’t understand how they cease the bigs of Gonzaga. The sport is sitting at 9.5 proper now and although they’ve seemed unhealthy the primary two video games I anticipate them to come back out with some extra depth and win each halves of this sport. I’m going to cautiously take them at -9.5
Michigan vs. Villanova
I haven’t been a Michigan believer this whole event. I’m not going to begin right here both. I feel Michigan is a fraud workforce that has been overrated because the begin of the yr. I’m taking Villanova to win this sport. Their protection ought to safe this sport and so they have sufficient sensible and environment friendly scorers that they will deal with no matter schemes are thrown at them. None of that is to say that Michigan CAN’T win the sport, however on the subject of cash, I feel now we have the sting on Villanova’s aspect. If they’re in a decent sport, I belief the Wildcats to get it achieved rather more. Villanova -5.5 -110
I don’t have rather more than leans on the opposite two video games. I like Duke however after a sure extent, you may’t simply preserve saying they may win as a result of it’s Coach Ok’s final season. The issue with the one-and-done gamers actually comes out in the course of the event. They struggled to get previous Michigan State and Texas Tech is a greater workforce than the Spartans. I feel this sport is a whole toss up and will see both workforce pulling it out. I don’t anticipate it to be a 1 level sport although, I’d wager it ends at 3+ due to free throws close to the tip of the sport, so over 137 might be the best way to play it
. So far as Arizona and Houston, I feel Arizona wins this, however Houston has performed very properly for fairly a while now. They’ve the aptitude to beat Arizona, however I wouldn’t put cash on both aspect. That is one other sport that I’d lean in direction of the over (145.5
) however bear in mind, simply because a sport is offered doesn’t imply you HAVE to wager it.
