MARCH MADNESS FREE PICK: Take UNLV. According to latest college basketball trends, California is 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a double-digit loss at home,  1-5 ATS in their last 6 NCAA Tournament games,  0-5 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Mountain West. UNLV is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games and 4-1 ATS last 5 in series.

UNLV (25-9 SU, 13-20 ATS) lost the Mountain West final to New Mexico, 63-56, giving 2.5 on March 16. California fell to Utah, 79-69 in overtime in the Pac-12 Tournament opening round on March 14. California is fortunate to play the game close to home. Of course, they faced UNLV at home on Dec. 9 and lost by one. In that game, forward Quintrell Thomas grabbed an airball and scored with 12 seconds left to lift UNLV. The Runnin' Rebels won seven of nine down the stretch beating Colorado State twice, San Diego State and Boise State. UNLV is led by freshman Anthony Bennett, averaging 16.1 points and 8 rebounds per game. He had 25 against Cal in the first game and can score from anywhere on the floor (39 percent from three-point range).  Bennett, a 6-foot-8 forward, is projected as a lottery pick in the NBA draft. KhemBirch, a 6-foot-9, 220-pound transfer from Pittsburgh, wasn't eligible when the teams first met. He averages 7.2 points and 5.7 rebounds. They outrebounded Cal by eight in the first game. Adding Birch to the mix will only help UNLV dominate the boards again and win the game. The Runnin' Rebels meet the Golden Bears from California at 7:27pmET in the East Regional of the NCAA Tournament at San Jose.
