Got slaughtered in Miami today after starting out pretty well. Bet all of these straight up and also put these four plays in a 2way round robin with Berdych for a dime.
Wisc-Milwaukee +10.5 against the Illini
Could get screwed at the end if game is in 7-9 margin and Pearl decides to have his boys foul. Might not be close from the outset, but the Panthers have looked mighty impressive so far against a solid Alabama team and albeit against a fading BC squad, but Illinois has looked anything but sharp for awhile now, including the Big 10 Conference tourney and here in the Big Dance.
Texas Tech -2 over West Virginia
This TT team isn't a vintage Bobby Knight defensive power, but I think he'll be able to outcoach Coach Beilein and his spread offense. BC totally shut down WVU early in the year and although WVU is playing superb right now, I think TT has similar athletes and should be able to pull out a close battle here. BTW, Ronald Ross is playing about as well as anybody so far in the tournament.
Oklahoma State -1.5 over Arizona
Olson vs Sutton. Should be a great game, I just like the pedigree of this Cowboys team and overall depth. The big boys should be able to abuse Frye, even though he has improved inside for the Cats this year.
Washington +2 over Louisville
The Cardinals have looked amazing so far this tournament, but the Huskies haven't struggled either in their first two games. The whole world is on Ville, I'll take the points with this overlooked team. Washington can be attacked on the inside, but bottom line is that I'm not entirely sold on Pitino and his boys.
Also threw down a deuce on these 4, Berdych, and Beck for 5.3
I haven't had the best of tournaments so far, so an 0-4 wouldn't shock me
