Pick: Central Michigan (-9) vs. Western Michigan

Reasoning: In the midst of many conference tournaments, the Mid-American Conference tourney is now underway. Today, we have an in state battle between Central and Western Michigan. The main reason I like The Chippewas (CMU) in this one is because of how poor WMU has been all year long. With a record of (8-23), The Broncos are one of the worst teams in the Mid-American Conference. Expect Central Michigan to come out of the gates fast and throttle Western Michigan from the jump. A win will keep The Chippewas NCAA tournament hopes alive.

Pick: Clippers (+2) vs. Celtics

Reasoning: If you’ve followed my picks so far this month, you know that The Clippers are known as ol’ reliable around here. Los Angeles has came through in March, with a perfect (5-0) record ATS, when picked on this site. Tonight, they host Boston, in what will be a very close game. The Celtics are finally starting to play better basketball, after having some chemistry issues. Expect The Clippers to continue to play their new brand of basketball and pull off the upset tonight. Take Los Angeles with the points, as Lou Williams and the bench provide enough scoring to cover (+2).
