MARCH MADNESS FREE PICK: Take Miami. According to latest college basketball trends, the Hurricanes are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall, 4-0 ATS in their lat four neutral site games, and 5-2 ATS in their last seven NCAA tournament games. On the other side, the Fighting Illini are 7-17 against the number in their lat 24 games following an ATS win, 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall, and 8-21 ATS in their last 29 games on Sunday. If Illinois can't hit its 3-pointers, then it won't win. It's as simple as that. The Illini had a brutal second half versus Colorado and only hung on because the Buffaloes essentially ran out of gas in the end. Look for a more talented Miami team to handle Illinois tonight to advance to the Sweet 16.
