NCABB BEST BETS sunday

 

SETON HALL  - 2

 

 The pirates are 13 -3 at home  , the three loses at home were to Syracuse , West Virginia and Temple , all were competitive games ,

The pirates have won their last 5 home games , defeating Cinci, louisville , Notre Dame , Depaul and Rutgers , I think Seton Hall plays much better at home .

While you could make a case for Marquette play on the road of late , they have been living on the edge,  with two overtime wins vs cinci and St Johns , could have easliy been 2 loses .

Another thing to consider is this game,  is it will be Marquette  4th game in 10 days( two stright OT games)  third straight on the road .

With all these factors i still think the public will bet Marquette blindly , i wouldnt be surprised if its a pk at game time .

 

 

NORTHWESTERN  + 2.5

 

The Wildcats the better of the two teams here , while Penn state won the last meeting 81-70 on 2/ 17 ..... I am   doubtfull they can repeat their shooting performace on that  night shooting over 57% from the field and 7-17 in  3 s , 

Penn State  seems to play as bad at home , as they do on the road , so i dont see any advantage  in the home court here , cant see Northwestern losing to this team twice in two weeks

 

 

RICHMOND + 7.5

NCAAB BEST BETS saturday

KENTUCKY - 2

Wildcats  already   locked  up the  1 seed  , but i don't see a let up here , kentucky won the last meeting by 11 , winning the battle on the boards , and with a question mark on the health of the VOLS forward Wayne Chism , might have an easier go of it  today .

 

PITTSBURGH  - 2

 Panthers  winners 5 of last 6 games , and   4 in a row , and 7 of last 9 in this series vs  St John  , PITT  won last  meeting by 10 ,

 Todays game  is at   at Madison SQ garden where PITT has won 11 of  last 15 at MSG

  PITT 31-10 SU after a loss, under Dixon  .and with  PITT defeating  Syracuse , Villanova , and West Virginia this season , this is a must play at this number .

 

RHODE ISLAND  - 5

The Rams  need to win their last three games to get an at large bid in the NCCA tournament , while they have struggled against teams with a slow pace , they have excelled against fast pace teams like the Bonnies .

Bonnies are 24-50-2 ATS in their last 76 home games.

 With the RAMS coming off a 101 point scoring effort  , vs Fordham , last saturday ,  with a weeks rest , look for fresh legs to get  the ATS here , in a game that they need for their at large bid to get to the tournament .

NCAAB BEST BETS sunday

VILLANOVA  - 2

 

I like NOVA here in this spot cause ,their last game was on monday the 15 , at this point in the season the exrea 3 days that NOVA  has on PITT is BIG  , , and like them more coming off that home loss to uconn with the extra days rest and practice time .

 

 

OHIO STATE + 4.5

 

     OHIO STATE  winners of 8 of last 10 SU 

 Michigan st  won last 2 against acouple of softies,  in Indiana and penn state , but before that had lost 3 in a row , I think Ohio state is the more talented of the teams here,  and could win SU , so i like the points in this one .

NCABB BEST BETS 2PM GAME

WAKE FOREST   -2 

 

WF  winners of 7 of last 8 games SU , and 6 of 7 ATS , also winners of the last two meetings in this series  .

NC STATE  after beating Duke over a month ago , since that game they have been in a freefall losing 6 in a row , and the last three home games by DD,    (will will not count the divison 2 school they played) 

Two teams going in different directions in their play ,and  WF playing too well , not to get this one
