Pick: UCF (-2) @ USF
Reasoning: An in-state battle between The Knights and The Bulls with extreme implications on the NCAA tournament bubble. This being their second matchup in two weeks, The Knights took game one by a score of 78-65. Tonight, Tacko Fall and his UCF team will look to continue to build their resume with a quality road win. Fall standing at 7’6, posted a 23 point and 20 rebound game in their last outing against SMU. Although, USF is one of the best rebounding teams in the American Conference, I expect the dominant post play to continue for The Knights. Watch for B.J Taylor and Aubrey Dawkins to get baskets down the stretch the to propel UCF to victory in a must win game.
Pick: Baylor ML (-170) vs. Texas
Reasoning: This year, The Baylor Bears are 11-0 at home coming off three days of rest, or more. Tonight, Texas comes to town to try and end that streak. Leading scorer Kerwin Roach II, has been suspended by the University of Texas for a violation of team rules. In what could be a high scoring affair, losing Roach II is crucial for The Longhorns. Expect Baylor to shoot the lights out from three and pick up a resume boosting home win.
