The picks are 27-22 in the NCAA Tournament. This can’t last. Prepare to short these.
Gonzaga (-3.5) v. Texas Tech- Gonzaga has better size than Texas Tech’s recent opponents, and Texas Tech’s attempt to run back St. Mary’s strategy in the West Coast Conference final does not work.
Virginia (-4.5) v. Purdue- Purdue’s hot shooting in the Sweet 16 doesn’t carry over against Virginia.
Duke (-2) v. Michigan State- Zion gives Duke a comfortable win.
Kentucky v. Auburn (+2.5)- The Tigers have one more hot shooting day and beat another blue blood.
