Thursday NCAA Tournament Gambling Picks

I don’t bet these picks, but maybe you’d like to win or lose money!

I don’t bet these, so I have no skin in the game. But if you’re thinking that I somehow have any value, believe whatever you’d like.

Louisville (-5) v. Minnesota- Minnesota isn’t good enough.

LSU v. Yale (+8.5)- Without Will Wade, LSU barely wins.

Auburn (-7.5) v. New Mexico State- Auburn keeps rolling after the SEC Tournament.

FSU (-11) v. Vermont- This line feels about perfect. I think FSU builds a late lead.

Michigan State v. Bradley (+19.5)- That’s a lot of points for Bradley to backdoor cover.

Maryland v. Belmont (+5)- I’ll take Belmont to win. Maryland is super inconsistent.

Kansas (-8.5) v. Northeastern- Kansas won’t make another Final Four, but they’re a lot better than Northeastern.

Marquette v. Murray State (+4.5)- The Racers pull the 5/12 upset.

Nevada (-3) v. Florida- Nevada plays like their preseason top ten ranking in the NCAA Tournament.

Kentucky (-21.5) v. Abilene Christian- The Wildcats are much better, but I’m not confident in betting this line.

Villanova (-5) v. St. Mary’s- Villanova is a good clip better. They win.

Gonzaga (-26) v. Fairleigh Dickinson- Gonzaga pummeled teams better than this all season.

Michigan v. Montana (+15.5)- Montana gives Michigan a game. The Wolverines still make a nice run.

Wofford (-3) v. Seton Hall- Wofford rains threes and wins.

Purdue v. Old Dominion (+12)- Purdue has a close game before an early exit in the NCAA Tournament.

Syracuse v. Baylor (+2)- Bears win.
