Matt: Iowa +7.5; Winthrop PK
Basketball purists have to be toweling themselves off whenever Iowa and Wisconsin meet to do battle. We’ll get all the stories of kids firing jumpers off the sides of their barns and the tales of Ethan Happ scoring 75 points in the Illinois state quarterfinals (I don’t know if that actually happened, but I assume it did.) Regardless, I see swaggy Jordan Bohannon hitting bombs tonight and doing everything he can to ruin Happ’s final home game at Wisconsin.
I am going solely based on fading the trends in the Winthrop-Charleston Southern game. Winthrop has lost four straight ATS while Charleston Southern has covered five straight. Winthrop will be gearing for their third win over CSU and a birth in the semi-finals of the Big South conference tournament.
Joe: Southern Utah +4.5; Illinois State -4; Iowa +7.5
Don’t let the records fool you on this one. Southern Utah sits at 14-14, 7th in the Big Sky and Northern Colorado is 20-9 2nd in the conference. Southern Utah is a very solid team and always plays well at home. Sitting at +4.5, wait back on this one try grabbing Southern Utah at +5 or even +5.5.
Illinois State is the far better team in every basketball category. Grab it now at 4. Evansville is 2-13 on the road this year and I don’t see them getting anywhere close to picking up their 3rd one here.
The Iowa-Wisconsin tilt features two good teams and I don’t see this game being a blowout. I think Vegas is a little too high on this spread. With Matt also on board, we’re both endorsing this one as our LOCK OF THE WEEK!
