There is no doubt Indiana has better players than Wisconsin yet the Badgers continue to dominate this team over the last 3 seasons. Wisconsin is a tough physical team that plays great defense and really test teams heart. Indiana just like most other teams this year have proven they don’t have much heart. This is a year a team like Wisconsin can make a deep run into the tournament just based on every player in their lineup being more competitive then the guys on the other team. This spread is too high. Take Wisconsin.

Again, much like Syracuse the coaching aspect of handicapping the game means a lot. In close games when the going gets tough its usually the team with the experienced coaching staff that pulls out the wins. This is going to be the best game of the day and I would not doubt if it comes down to the final minute. In that final minute its always amazing that the calls always go the way of the more popular team or the team with the better coach. Not taking anything away from Thad Matta, but Tom Izzo is a legend. Take Michigan State.

The key to this game will be rebounding. The Jayhawks are a much better rebounding team which means second chance points and limiting second chance opportunities for Kstate. Kansas proved they were the much better team this year and have been battle tested this year. This team is good enough to make a huge run and have learned from their mistakes this year. Take Kansas.

This Orange team reminds me of Uconn two years ago. They are hitting their stride at the right time. Louisville is a great basketball and I think the best in the BIG East, but as we have seen this tournament the craziest of things can and will happen. Syracuse has one of the best coaches in college basketball history and that goes a long way in these tournament games. Take Syracuse.

The Pacers were beat by a hobbled Lakers team at home and then had to jump on a plane to face a Sixers team that is not very good this year, but has been making decent strides as of late and really can build on how well they played Miami a few nights ago. This should be a good one. I like the points with Philly. Take the Sixers.

The Jazz were absolutely embarrassed by the Thunder the last time they took the court on Wednesday 110-87. That's good news for us today as Utah is the best team in the NBA against the spread off a double digit loss this year going 8-2 ATS in that situation. This is also a very important game for Utah. The Lakers winning last night dropped the Jazz one game behind Los Angeles for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Jazz are also 26-7 at home against the Grizzlies and with a win here almost surely covering the slim pointspread lets back Utah to bounce back strong again tonight.

Alabama +13 over Florida: Just 1 of the last 10 meetings between these teams have been decided by more than 12 points, including both games this year. This really should be a low scoring game as both teams play excellent defense and that should mean a close game. The Bama defense is tough this year as they come in allowing just 59.3 ppg on 40.9% shooting for the year and they are off a game, in which they held a Tennessee squad that had been scoring a bunch, to just 48 points. Florida is off a huge 22 point over LSU, but the Tiger defense is not even close to that of the Tides, plus we note that Florida has not played well away from home of late losing their last 3 games SU & ATS when out on the road. Alabama is clearly on the bubble for a bit in the NCAA Tourney and that should give them plenty of motivation to at least keep this one. Im not sure Alabama can win outright, but behind their staunch defense and heavy motivation they should have enough to keep this one close.

NC State +3 over Miami:  I had the Canes yesterday and I will be the first o say that I got lucky on that one. They did not play well at all and were actually tied with BC with about 6 minutes to go in the game. I felt that the rest would have helped Miami coming into that game, but it really didn't as hey played pretty much like they did down the stretch of the regular season. Miami did limp into the post season, going just 2-3 down the stretch, which included a home loss to Georgia Tech and a blowout road loss to Wake Forest. this is not a team that has been playing all that well, and being tied with NC State with about 6 minutes to go in the game would be a hole lot different than facing BC in that same situation. State is a much better squad that the Eagles and they are also more experienced, which means they will know how to close out the game. NC State is off a couple of blowout wins in the ACC tourney and they have won 8 of their last 10 overall so they are playing much better than Miami right now and they also have revenge on their minds for a last second loss to the Canes during the regular season. Look for NC State to move on to the ACC Finals.

Ohio - over Akron

Akron squeaked by rival Kent State last night, winning by three despite a massive advantage in shooting percentage and free throw attempts. That was a game that avenged a loss in the regular season finale and while everything is at stake today this is a Zips team is disarray since the arrest and suspension of point guard Alex Abreu. 17 turnovers last night nearly cost Akron the game and this has not resembled the team that once had a 19-game winning streak. Akron won at Ohio in the last meeting between these teams with an 88-81 overtime win. Akron shot 51 percent in that game and had 31 free throw attempts with Abreu having a big game with 16 points and nine assists. While Ohio perhaps underachieved a bit in the regular season this is a squad that is tournament tested with a Sweet 16 run in the NCAA Tournament last season. Ohio has won four straight games since the loss to Akron and the Bobcats are a very efficient offensive team, shooting over 47 percent on the season. With losses in both match-ups this season this is a game Ohio will be ready for and the Bobcats came out on top when these teams met in the conference tournament last season. The loss of Abreu can not be understated and given the taxing situation with back-to-back games and the magnitude of this championship game, Akron can�t be trusted without its top playmaker.

Andrew Lange

Massachusetts vs. VCU
Play: Massachusetts

I'm of the belief that teams facing VCU for a second time are going to perform better. The element of surprise with the "Havoc" isn't as strong and an entire game of film can be dissected. When UMass traveled to VCU earlier this season the inevitable occurred – the Minutemen turned the ball over 24 times and lost by 18. Make no mistake, UMass is going to cough it up more than a few times tonight, but I'm confident that the change in venue and situation (UMass playing for its NCAA Tournament life) is going to make this more of a competitive matchup. And another thing to consider is VCU isn't the same team away from home. The Rams played nine games against A-10 opponents on the road/neutral and had exactly one win by more than seven points – against the worst team in the league, Duquesne.

VCU vs. St. Joe's - Win by 3
VCU at Temple - Loss by 8
VCU at Xavier - Win by 4
VCU at Saint Louis - Loss by 4
VCU at Charlotte - Win by 7
VCU at Rhode Island - Win by 6
VCU at Richmond - Loss by 12 (OT)
VCU at Duquesne - Win by 27
VCU at St. Bonaventure - Win by 7

Outside of that blowout loss to VCU, UMass's losses in conference play came by margins of 8, 3, 1, 1, 5, and 9. Enough points to make a play on the underdog.
