for me

College of Charleston +10.5 - lot of points. hot coach.

Seton Hall -2 - should be in 160s, NC State not interestd in defense. little nervous Desi Rodriguez not being 100% but has a week off. if there was only day or so of
prep wouldn't like SH here, but like the week to get ready for their press. Myles Powell needs to make shots again. he's a bit of a head case , neutral site will be good for him.

Arkansas +1.5 - Butler really hasn't been playing well. Seton Hall gifted them a win last week. don't see Butler getting the good freshman big man from Arkansas into foul trouble, which seems to be key to beating them. guards from Arkansas are too much. Macon is ice water vein guy late in a close game.

Haven't seen a minute of Davidson play. But white guys vs black guys? ha. Gimme Kentucky.
Not Happy Kentucky vs Arizona in possible 2nd rd matchup as those were my 2 picks to win it all.

Like New Mexico +5.

Been fading Clemson the last few weeks and will continue here. Think New Mexico wins outright.

The Oklahoma/Rhode Island game is a joke in that one of the two teams will advance. This should be an NIT game.

I got down on Loyola-Chi +2.5 before the move, they seem to be a trendy pick which worries me a little

STEPHEN F. AUSTIN LUMBERJACKS +11.5 vs texas tech red raiders.

The Lumberjacks have now gone to the NCAA BB tournament four(4) out of the last five(5) years.

Stephen F. Austin is two(2) wins and one(1) losses in their past three(3) NCAA BB tournament first round games(2014, 2015, 2016).

Their one(1) loss was by seven(7) points.

The Lumberjacks have won ten(10) of their last eleven(11) games while the Texas Tech Red Raiders have lost five(5) of their last seven(7) straightup.

No brainer here!

Texas Tech’s best player was hurt when they lost those 4 straight games. He didn’t even play against West Virginia.

But they still lost.

Players get hurt all the time.

It's part of the game.

Did he play against Texas and TCU?

Texas Tech only beat them by four(4) points each.

Anybody giving a veteran NCAA basketball tournament team like Stephen F. Austin double digit points is NUTS!

Not many know about the South Dakota St Jackrabbits. If they don't take out Ohio St as a 12-5 upset, give me the 8 points all day.

Mike Daum can score with the best of them and connects about 43% of the time beyond the arc. David Jenkins Jr is a solid second option.

Long layoff for Ohio St and did not look its sharpest over their final 5 games. Diop is a good scorer and rebounder while Tate is solid as well but don't distribute the rock as efficiently. Contrasting style could result in a closer than the experts think.

OSU is a tough team to read. Since December 2nd, if you exclude their weird inability to beat PSU, they've only lost to North Carolina neutral site and Michigan on the road.

On this one as well. Not by design but almost exclusively on dogs opening round. Along with COC.....

Buffalo
Wright State
SDak State
Ga State
Marshall
Murray State


Probably end up adding NMex State and Providence as well. Good luck men.

I don't get the UCLA game, seems they have all the credentials, what does Bonnies have.

As a Gator Im rooting hard for St Bonny. They win we advance, UCLA wins we are in trouble.

Ill definitely take Bruins plus whatever points they are giving away.

Coaching less relevant with 30 sec clock......
Disagree Rail, more possessions make coaching more relevant, not less.

Dont need much of a coach if you are playing 4 corners, stalling and eating clock.

Bigger advantage you have with players and coaches the more possessions you want.

More possessions less the possession matter, less the coaching matters.
