March Madness Day 1 Picks

Going into this I want to make full disclosure that I do not know college too well. But I can’t stay away from the action. This weekend and last weekend are the two best basketball weekends of the year. So without further ado let’s get into game 1.

 

Minnesota vs Louisville -5

So this game has Rick Pitino’s son coaching against his dad’s old team. That’s why I like Minnesota here. I think they come out really wanting to win this for their coach. Plus this game is closer to Minnesota so they should have a good amount of fans in there. Seeing as that they are the higher seed and favored in the game, Louisville is probably the better team. I just see think Minnesota will be extra motivated to win this game for their coach.

 

Yale vs LSU -7

So the story here is that LSU is without their coach. Yale has been led to this point by a player that is nba caliber. I still think LSU wins and covers here.

 

New Mexico State vs Auburn -6

Auburn is the easy pick here. This will probably be the easiest pick of the day. After the way they won the SEC Championship they will be on fire to start the tournament.

 

UVM vs FSU -8.5

Taking fsu to cover here

 

Bradley vs Michigan State -18.5

I feel like MSU always starts the tournament on fire. I like them to cover here.

 

Belmont vs Maryland -3

Im surprised at this line. I figured Maryland would be favored by more. I like them to win but not sure about covering.

 

Northeastern vs Kansas -7

Kansas has sucked this year but I would be surprised if they didn’t cover here.

 

Murray state vs Marquette -3.5

I have no idea what is going to happen in this game.

 

Florida vs Nevada -3

I dont know what will happen here either. I like florida to win though.

 

Abilene Christian bs Kentucky -20

Kentucky. Obviously

 

St. Marys vs Villanova -4.5

I like nova here. I think they will catch fire for the tournament.

 

Fairleigh Dickinson vs Gonzaga -28

Gonzaga maybe? I hate these games.

 

Montana vs Michigan -15

Michigan should cover here.

 

Seton Hall vs Worrord -2.5

Wofford is pretty good. They should probably be favored by more. I like them to cover.

 

ODU vs Purdue -12.5

Purdue should be able to put this one away.

 

Baylor vs Syracuse -2

I like cuse here. I cant help but think of Melo when I see cuse so that’s why Im taking them.
