BIG TEN EDITION

IF I HAD $100 BET CREDITS …

Trayce Jackson-Davis is a double-double machine.

Here’s what we like tonight in the Big Ten tourney:

[$40] Northwestern (-1.5) vs. Penn State: PSU could jump out to an early lead against the rested, rusty Wildcats, but Northwestern has the perimeter length to deal with marksman Andrew Funk (6-9 3PT vs. Illinois).

[$30] PSU-NU Under 130.5: The Nittany Lions play sllllow, and the Wildcats suffocate on ‘D.’

[$20] Indiana (-2) vs. Maryland: The great Trayce Jackson-Davis went for 18 & 20 (!) in their Jan. 31 matchup, but the Terps still won by 11. Look for IU to get more from frosh guard Jalen Hood-Schifino (1-14 FG) in this one.

[$10] Indiana-Maryland Under 135: The Under ↘️ cashed in seven of the Terps’ last 10 games against opponents with a winning record.

EXPERT PICKS

NBA studio host Kazeem 'Kaz' Famuyide, college sports guru Lucy Rohden and soccer expect Jon Eimer are workin' for the weekend.

THE NBA HOST

Trail Blazers +9.5 @ 76ers (-110)
“Even though Portland isn’t great, Damian Lillard always gives them a puncher’s chance.”
T’Wolves ML (-190) vs. Nets
“The Nets rested their players against the Bucks, thinking they had a better shot against Minnesota. I don’t think the Wolves will take kindly to that.”

THE COMEDIAN

Kansas -4.5 vs. Iowa State (-110)
“Death, taxes and Iowa State blowing double-digit leads.”
Miami +2 vs. Duke (-110)
“The last time Duke and Miami played, it was so bad that Coach K considered coming out of retirement.”

THE SOCCER GUY

Dortmund ML (-140) vs. Schalke (Sat 12:30 p.m. ET)
“Dortmund are coming off a massive disappointment as they were knocked out of the UCL by Chelsea. I expect to see Dortmund bounce back in a big way.”
Toulouse ML (-107) vs. Angers (Sun 10 a.m. ET)
“This weekend’s Ligue 1 action features the worst team in France, coming off their worst loss of the year. Angers has been hard to watch.”
COFFEE YES, JUICE NO

BIG EAST EDITION

IF I HAD $100 (MORE) BET CREDITS …

The Huskies can be dangerous in the Big Apple.

Here’s what we dig tonight in the Big East bracket:

[$40] UConn-Marquette Over 147.5: The Huskies are good at everything, and the Golden Eagles are way more potent with the ball.

[$25] UConn -4 v. Marquette: UConn has sizzled since February, and the Golden Eagles have rebounding issues. Plus they’re 2-6 ATS following a victory.

[$25] Xavier +4 vs. Creighton: The Musketeers play well away from home (9-6 straight up) and have the offense to win outright.

[$10] Creighton-Xavier: Over 152.5: X has an elite offense (sixth in adjusted efficiency) and will maximize possessions (31st ⏩ in adjusted tempo).

PURPLE REIGN

BIG BET

Northwestern has never even reached a Sweet 16. But this bettor has high hopes for the Wildcats.

HOT DOGS

ON THE (PLUS) MONEY

Four Friday moneyline ‘dogs worth examining:

Iowa State +165 vs. Kansas (7 p.m. ET) – Can the Jayhawks keep winning without Bill Self, who fell ill? Maybe, but Iowa State’s defense is the best weapon on the floor.

Vanderbilt +310 vs. Kentucky (9:30 p.m. ET)– Vandy has reached fringe bubble status by winning nine of its last 10, including a March 1 squeaker over UK.

Clemson +135 vs. Virginia (9:30 p.m. ET) – The Tigers are on the verge of tournament extinction and just clobbered NC State 80-54 as a 2-point favorite.

Boise State +110 vs. Utah State (midnight ET) – The Broncos are in a revenge spot after losing to the Aggies last weekend.

 

YOUNG GUN

ODDS SHIFT

Bryce Young was favored to go No. 1 before the NFL Combine, and that didn’t change. But let’s examine some moves, big and small.

  • Young -176 ➡️ -145: The “6-footer” measured a whisker over 5-10, but height a relic in the Russell Wilson/ Kyler Murray era.
  • Anthony Richardson +600 ➡️ +450: Whoa Nellie! Available at 100/1 (+10000) as recently as Feb. 13, this athletic freak is now the third fave.
  • Will Levis +550 ➡️ +1000: Levis has a cannon, but his throwing mechanics will give pause to whoever picks first.
  • Jalen Carter +700 ➡️ +6000: Once a coin flip to be the top defensive player selected, his odds have plummeted due to character issues.
