Michigan dominated Texas A&M. I thought Michigan would cool down.. they didn’t. John Beilein’s teams always play solid defense, but their offense has been impressive over the past month. This team may be better on offense than the 2013 team that lost in the title game to [vacated]. That team had Caris LeVert, Nik Stauskas, Tim Hardaway Jr, Glen Robinson III, Spike Albrecht, Trey Burke, and that bowling pot smoker Mitch McGary. Florida State handled Gonzaga.. we all knew Florida State would be the ACC team outta that region. Loyola and Sister Jean kept on being the dream team. Finally, Kansas State put the pressure on Kentucky’s young team and Kentucky could not handle it. PJ Washington went 8-20 from the line for BBN.
Kansas ML for 3 units at -210. Devonte’ Graham, Devonte’ Graham, and Malik Newman is all you need to see here. Clemson also has a trio of good guards, but the return of Udoka Azubuike for Kansas will be the difference in this one. Udoka just gives those guards a little more room to work on the perimeter.
Villanova -5 for 1 unit. Villanova’s guards should be able to break down WVU’s press. Mikal Bridges, Jalen Brunson, and Phil Booth should be able to do enough for Nova to cover as well. West Virginia lost to another 1 seed by 11 in their conference tournament and I think a similar outcome will happen here.
Duke Syracuse under 133 for 2 units. Two zone defenses going at each other here. Duke’s freshmen were struggling to switch on screens this season so Coach K switched to the zone. It was a smart move. Coach K is pretty good at what he does by the way. The score in this game was 60-44 earlier this season. I thought the line would be at about 129 so I am taking what I perceive as value here.
Texas Tech +2 for 2 units. I just think Purdue will get out-rebounded even though they are the bigger team. If Matt Haarms gets into foul trouble, Texas Tech will win. Keenan Evans will attack Haarms so he could be in early foul trouble. I think this will be a close game.. so why not take the points?
