Tournament Time – Bubble Watch

70-62-2 on NCAAB last season and went up 8.95 units

32-28-1 this season up 13.32 units

7-1 over the past three days.

Old Dominion at -183 for 7 units. UAB beat ODU by 14 at home, but loss by 11 on the road against the Monarchs. Now we get a neutral site rubber match. ODU did not come to play in that loss. They come ready to play tonight. UAB’s biggest starter is 6-foot-7. ODU’s is 7-foot-1. ODU got outrebounded in their loss to UAB, which highlights their lack of hustle in that game. They come ready to play today. Aaron Carver, Ahmad Caver, B.J. Stith, and Xavier Green get it done for ODU. Taking the team with better guard play.

Nebraska +8 for 2 units. Wisconsin struggles to score at time. Nebraska’s James Palmer Jr. does not struggle to score. James was on fire in Nebraska’s upset over Maryland. Nebraska lost by 11 to Wisconsin at home this season, but Wisconsin got them playing their worst basketball of the season. Nebraska are playing better now. 

Davidson at -257 for 3 units. This line should be closer to -400 than -200. It is that simple.

North Carolina +4 for 2 units. Zion is back, but beating Syracuse without Syracuse’s best player doesn’t impress me too much. North Carolina’s Coby White and Cam Johnson are silky from deep. Kenny Williams is one of the best defenders in the country, but somehow didn’t make the All-ACC defensive team. The voters had to be drunk. Luke Maye is nowhere near as athletic as Williamson or Barrett, but can still have a huge impact on the game. Marques Bolden being out hurts Duke. UNC can be taken advantage of inside, but his ankle injury makes that a little tougher to do. UNC makes 3s and hits the offensive glass for the cover.

West Virginia +11 for 2 units. WVU’s hustle and rebounding were amazing last night. Jarrett Culver settled for too many jumpers for Texas Tech, but credit to the Mountaineers for their great defense on him. This WVU team is playing too hard right now to lose by 11 or more.
