How SWEEP it was! We busted the brooms out and cashed every round robin parlay last Saturday. The Miami Hurricanes kicked the day off with an impressive 78-74 outright win at Clemson as short road dogs. Then the Indiana Hoosiers took care of business against Purdue to take over second place in the B1G standings. Fade Mizzou on the road and back ‘em at home – that’s exactly what we did by backing Mississippi State who cruised to the 63-52 win and cover as 3.5-point chalk. The UCLA Bruins bounced back nicely for us to snap a three-game coverless streak by taking the wood to Wazzou in a 76-52 win and cover. St. Mary’s closed the glorious day out by battling back in the second half to force overtime before going on to cover the chalk in the extra session. It’ll be tough to follow that showing up but I’ll give it the ‘ol college try. Now 11-3 my L/14 overall selections, let’s roll those winnings into this Saturday’s action and see if we can’t churn out another winning parlay card at the online sportsbook!

The Texas Longhorns return home off a tough 88-80 loss in Lawrence even though the defense held Jalen Wilson to a grand total of two points. That won’t sit well with the burnt orange and I firmly expect Marcus Carr and Timmy Allen to take their frustrations out on a tough-luck West Virginia outfit it already defeated in Morgantown back on January 21. That matchup was nip and tuck over the first 20, but the Horns pulled away in the second half to log the 69-61 outright win as 1-point underdogs. They’ll be laying a couple possessions in the rematch. While WVU ranks out tremendously well at KenPom (No. 15), I’m not buying it! It allowed Texas to convert at a 47 percent clip on its home floor, and also turned it over a whopping 20 times. The Mountaineers possess one win through five tries on the B12 road and it came against wretched Texas Tech! While positive regression is bound to hit when playing away from Morgantown, it won’t occur in Austin against a determined Longhorns outfit.
Don’t look now, but the UConn Huskies got their groove back having logged three straight wins (2-1 ATS) over DePaul, Georgetown, and Marquette. We confidently laid the home chalk with Tristen Newton and his mates against the Golden Eagles on Tuesday night, and he hooked us up with a triple-double en route to leading the Huskies to the commanding 87-72 win and cover as 5-point favorites. Dan Hurley’s kids already took Creighton down once this season by way of forcing 13 Bluejays miscues and holding Baylor Scheierman and Co. to a 2 of 16 showing from downtown. They covered the 7.5-point spread in the 69-60 defeat but could be catching a possession in the rematch in Omaha. Hit the Huskies moneyline if that’s the case!
I took the points with the TCU Horned Frogs when they stormed Waco way back on January 4. Mike Miles Jr. led the team to the exhilarating 88-87 outright win as 6-point dogs by going off for a game-high 33 points while reeling in eight rebounds – second to Eddie Lampkin Jr.’s nine. This however will be his first game back since hyperextending his knee at Miss State at the end of January. Lampkin Jr. is also battling an ankle injury and simply doesn’t look healthy right now. With TCU’s top-two players nicked up and Baylor seeking revenge, I’ll have no choice but to fade the home team with linemakers likely to install them possession favorites. Keyonte George and Co. will be locked in and ready to score the huge road win!
The Indiana Hoosiers recent run has been extremely impressive with it rattling off wins in seven of eight which includes dominant wins against Wisconsin, @Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Purdue. However, only two wins were accrued on the road against the Illini and Minnesota with the lone defeat coming away from Assembly Hall against a revitalized Maryland outfit. Same goes for the Michigan Wolverines who’ve rattled off back-to-back wins at Northwestern and back home versus Ohio State. Hunter Dickinson will prove to be a major pain for Trayce Jackson-Davis to contend with, and UM’s No. 75 ranked 3-point defense will keep the Hoosiers long range shooting in check. Michigan is a different team with a healthy Jett Howard back in the mix. I expect it to hold serve in front of the hometown faithful and come out on top of this pick ‘em affair.
Duke Blue Devils
I don’t know what it is, but I’m never truly impressed with what Tony Bennett’s Virginia Cavaliers bring to the table. Sorry, but the team simply just bores me. While the Cavs currently sit atop the ACC standings, that isn’t saying much with no team in the conference ranked amongst the Pomeroy Ratings top-10 teams. While Duke is no longer the world-beater it once was under Coach K’s watch, I’m expecting a determined effort to be put forth after getting spanked in a prime letdown spot at Miami two days after winning that thriller against the hated North Carolina Tar Heels. The Blue Devils employ the perimeter defense (No. 35) that can hamper UVA’s ability to light it up from deep. It’s also got some major rebounders in Kyle Filipowski and Ryan Young to limit Virginia’s second chance scoring opportunities. In what should be a defensive grinder, look for Jeremy Roach and Co. to right the ship and fight the Wahoos till the bitter end.
