We went 2-1 in our Round 1 picks hitting on Rutgers -1.5 over Clemson (Final Score 60-56) and Syracuse +3 vs San Diego St. (Final Score 78-62). Our Georgetown +5.5 pick against Colorado didn’t fare as well as they got walloped 96-73.
Here are our Sweet 16 picks:
Oral Roberts +11.5 vs Arkansas AND Oral Roberts vs Arkansas UNDER 158.5
Saturday 3/27 – 7:25 pm on TBS
Yes, they are a #15 seed, but Oral Roberts has shown they should have been seeded much higher. They have already taken down two tough teams in Ohio St. and Florida and this will be a close game. Both teams here can put up points but 158.5 is absurd for any game not involving Gonzaga. The public loves the OVER, but we like winning money and are taking the UNDER.
Syracuse +6.5 vs Houston
Saturday 3/27 – 9:55 pm on TBS
We rode Syracuse getting points in the First Round and are doing the same here. Buddy Boeheim has been lights out and even if he slows down a little this game will come down to the final possessions. Take the points with ‘Cuse.
Parlay – Baylor ML over Villanova, Gonzaga ML over Creighton , Michigan ML over Florida State: +155 Odds
Michigan over Florida State is the only pick that makes us a little nervous, but these three teams are #1 seeds for a reason. Rather than messing with the spreads, parlay the money lines for all three games, get plus odds, and enjoy rooting for the best teams in college basketball.
