Xavier Musketeers vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs NCAA Tournament Pick from AAA Sports: March 25th 2017

| March 25, 2017

Xavier Musketeers vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs
NCAA Tournament Pick: Gonzaga -8 points (March 25th 2017)

Gonzaga looks to punch its ticket to the Final Four and make it to the Championship game for the first time in school history. The Bulldogs haven’t been steam-rolling opponents like many predicted that they would, but they’ve been methodical in their attack and their defense has been “on point.” Xavier looks poised for a letdown here though after its big upset of Arizona in the Sweet 16, somehow managing a way to victory despite losing the rebounding battle 35-27 and missing 5 of its 16 free throw attempts.

Gonzaga held WVU to just 26.7 percent from the floor and only 5 of 23 from range. Nigel Williams-Goss also had an “off” night, finishing with only ten points and seven boards (normally averages 16.8 and 5.8 respectively). Suffice it to say, we’re expecting Goss and the BULLDOGS to get back on track offensively, to continue their dominant defensive play and to find a way to get the job done at the end of the night. Consider laying the points in this one.

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Florida Gators NCAA Tournament Betting Pick from AAA Sports: March 24th 2017

| March 23, 2017

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Florida Gators
NCAA Tournament Betting Pick: Wisconsin +2 (March 24th 2017)

Wisconsin has defeated Virginia Tech and Villanova to reach the round of 16, while Florida got by East Tennessee State and Virgnia. The Badgers only average 72.1 PPG, but they make up for it on the defensive end in allowing just 61.8 per contest (ranked 11th in the nation). Florida averages 77.9 PPG and allows 65.7. Note though that Wisconsin is 7-1 ATS in its last eight non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in its last five against teams with a win percentage above .600, while Florida is just 1-4 ATS in its last five following an ATS victory. Clearly these are two very evenly matched teams, but at this point of the Tournament, it’s all about momentum and we think the Badgers have that factor firmly on their side after beating the defending champs. Florida leading scorer KeVaughn Allen has gone just 3 for 21 over his last two games, which doesn’t bode well in facing Wisconsin’s red hot seniors in Bronson Koenig and Nigel Hayes. Consider a second look at the BADGERS on Friday night.

UIC vs. Coastal Carolina College Basketball Point Spread Pick from Scott Rickenbach: March 22nd 2017

| March 22, 2017

UIC vs. Coastal Carolina
College Basketball Point Spread Pick: Illinois-Chicago +3.5 (March 22nd 2017)

Free Pick – Rickenbach CBB Wednesday Illinois-Chicago Flames (+) @ Coastal Carolina Chanticleers @ 7 ET – Coastal Carolina was down at halftime against Loyola-Maryland Monday and had used a lot of energy just to get back in the game as they were down 18-2 with less than 12 minutes to go in the first half. While the Chanticleers deserve respect for coming back from that deficit and eventually rallying for the win and cover, they also deserve to be downgraded for an inexcusable start to the game on their home floor. Now Coastal Carolina faces a dangerous Illinois-Chicago team that is playing with an “us against the world” mentality. Though young, the Flames have had all season now to bond together and they certainly showed the benefits of that in their big upset win over George Washington Monday. Keep in mind the Flames also upset Wisconsin-Green Bay in the Horizon League tourney so they’ve been a dangerous dog and have played solid defense in 3 of their last 4 games overall. A lot of points expected here and UIC has gone 10-3 ATS this season in games with a posted total in the 150s. Also, the Flames are 8-4 ATS in road games this season. The Chanticleers also are still likely to be without Shivaughn Wiggins and the senior guard is one of their top scorers. Coastal Carolina, after rallying to pull away from the Greyhounds Monday, will struggle with a Flames team whose confidence is growing with each upset win and I look for UIC to improve to 4-1 SU in their last 5 games with another win tonight but grab the points here! Free Pick ILLINOIS-CHICAGO Wednesday. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Richmond vs. TCU Basketball Betting Odds & Pick from Dave Price: March 21st 2017

| March 21, 2017

Richmond vs. TCU
Basketball Betting Prediction: Richmond +7.5 -110 odds (March 21st 2017)

The Richmond Spiders are 22-12 on the season and one of the best teams in the Atlantic 10.  They have closed the season very strong, going 7-1 in their last 8 games overall.  They went on the road and beat Alabama 71-64 as 8-point dogs, then topped Oakland 87-83.  I look for them to give TCU a fight here.  The Horned Frogs only won by 7 at home over Fresno State in the NIT opener and then survived in OT against Iowa.  There’s a good chance this one goes down to the wire as well and this 7.5-point spread comes into play.  Richmond is 6-0 ATS in road games off a home win this season.  Richmond is 7-0 ATS when playing against a marginal winning team (Win Pct. 51% to 60%) this season.  The Horned Frogs are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.  Take Richmond.
