Harry’s College Hoops Picks
You’d have cashed for a profit In the event you had wagered based on my analysis a week. My record from the disperse has been 10-6 and that included going. We’re currently coming conference tournaments so for the past couple of matches of the regular day, you need to take good care for a bettor. Here is my insight and comments on crucial titles this weekend (plus obviously three more Hidden Gems I have found).
Iowa did shed at Penn State earlier this season by three points but is a totally different team at home. The Hawkeyes have Luka Garza mostly to thank and have won seven conference matches in a row at home. Garza is averaging 24 points a game and has scored 30 or more in six matches this season (for example 44 vs Michigan).
Prediction: Iowa 78
The Jayhawks reclaimed the title of being No. 1 in the property after taking down the Bears of Baylor during the weekend. Kansas beat the Wildcats within their very first meeting, which has been marred by a struggle between the groups to end the game from 21. Kansas will put them away early in the first half and cruise to a different double-digit victory.
Prediction: Kansas State 66, Kansas 81
TCU is currently coming from a victory from a West Virginia squad. On March 2, Baylor may be looking beyond the Horned Frogs and plays with Texas Tech. TCU is playing nicely and keeps this game close.
Prediction: TCU 58, Baylor 59
This is exactly the type of game I warned about in the introductory paragraph. Florida State withdrew Louisville in the second half on Monday and might seem to be a wager against Clemson on Saturday. On the other hand, the Tigers could really use this win since they really are a”weapon group” for the NCAA tourney and they do have extraordinary wins at home against Louisville and Duke. There’s a thing about this Tigers group when they are in the home and they get it done.
Prediction: Clemson 73
The Gators throw this one on the road like Keyontae Johnson and Kerry Blackshear (both ordinary 14 points and 7 rebounds a game) do it in Knoxville.
Prediction: Tennessee 61, Florida 68
The Pirates beat Marquette at home this season also have had two wins. The Eagles have been slumping of late and even Markus Howard (leads nation in scoring) can’t assist them lately.
Prediction: Seton Hall 64
The Tigers beat the Wildcats by nine points before this year and have won five games this season in overtime, making it eight in a row Auburn has won in overtime. Luck stays on the Tigers’ face and then they take down Kentucky at a close one in everything although overtime.
Prediction: Auburn 82, Kentucky 80 (OT)
Duke includes four players that average double digits in points and at least four rebounds. The Blue Devils will bounce back from their loss Tuesday at Wake Forest.
Prediction: Virginia 59, Duke 66
The Aztecs could be reeling from their first loss of the year on Saturday against UNLV (a match I gave out as a winner). Nevada has won three in a row against San Diego State at home which comes with a 28-point dismantling last season. Here is the type of game which stays close during and that winning streak is broken by the Aztecs , hardly.
Prediction: San Diego State 67, Nevada 63
The Terrapins outscored the Spartans 15-2 down the stretch around February 15 at East Lansing in a Ten road win. Michigan State closes out the regular season against three Top 25 competitions and Xavier Tillman and the Spartans return the favor of this one against Maryland.
Prediction: Michigan State 67, Maryland 65
These two teams also have 21-plus wins (four groups at the WCC have 21 or more wins) but among Gonzaga’s had been a 30-point victory on the road at Saint Mary’s. The Bulldogs take action .
Prediction: Saint Mary’s 70, Gonzaga 88
These teams played a game this season with Cincy winning at home 64-62, using a deuce. The Cougars return the favor in the home on Sunday.
Prediction: Cincinnati 58, Houston 63
The Hoosiers keep this one close thanks to Trayce Jackson-Davis, although both groups have been streaky. He is averaging 14 points a game and is shooting 58 percent from the field.
Prediction: Indiana 65, Illinois 66
The Wolverines are a tough team. They have posted wins over Creighton, UNC and Gonzaga but have dropped to Illinois (twice) and Minnesota. The Buckeyes had a strong win Sunday from Maryland, so this makes for a second Big Ten game that might just move down to the cable.
Prediction: Ohio State 72, Michigan 71
The Mavericks lost a close one at Texas State before this season 64-62. Formerly, Arlington had conquered Texas State four straight times. The Mavericks have had some pretty close non-conference games that they need to be proud of and have won each of their past four matches. They beat Tulsa by 14 and dropped close ones to Nevada, Houston and Gonzaga (dropped to Zags by just six on the street ).
Prediction: Texas State 68 Arlington 67
The Spiders have beaten UMass in five and from 23 the Minutemen rolled in Richmond. UMass is just 1-5 on the road in the Atlantic 10 this season and Richmond’s five residence conference wins have come by 32, 18, 22, 18 and 15 points.
Prediction: UMass 60, Richmond 81
Fresno played Nevada tough on February 22, dropping the game by only two things. The Cowboys lost at home to Fresno by 15 points this year and have dropped seven of their last nine on the Bulldogs.
Prediction: Fresno State 63, Wyoming 49
