    Texas Tech will be cutting down the nets.

    There has not been such a fierce, athletic, and a team like this in years. They are an unstoppable force.

    They won't get any calls against Michigan State, the NCAA knows Michigan State has the state of Michigan for TV ratings, Texas Tech- Auburn would be the worst possible scenario for the NCAA>

    Once again, favorites are favored by too much (imo). Probably hedge against Mich State future with Tech. Would be a bit surprised if Tech and Auburn don't make the final.

    Donít get the lines Vegas sets. Tech destroys Michigan and beat the most complete team in the tourney and they are +3. Auburn beats 3 blue bloods and they are 5,5 dogs vs a Virginia team who got lucky to advance past Purdue and struggle vs Oregon. It seems like Vegas is setting their lines based on kenpom.

    Mich St favored based on knocking out top overall seed and pedigree. Auburn still getting dinged for losing their stud Okeke. Teams are all very even except for those factors which Vegas likes to take into account, sometimes too much...

    They have looked very good.

    Might place a real money (non air) bet on them, +140 is a nice price. I think it's inflated because of how overrated Duke was.

    Wait, you’d be surprised if TTU and Auburn - both dogs - don’t make the finals? Strange.

    Look, the numbers I run (and I know I'm not the best at gambling) show these teams all being much closer in terms of past performance than the numbers lines makers are putting out there. Dogs have certainly been the way to go, as I said, most of the lines for faves have, imo, been largely inflated. Doesn't mean some won't cover, but I think in large part (maybe just my perception) they have not.

    I have MSU - 1.5 and UVA -2.5. If I play these, I pretty much have to bet the dogs.

    Had MSU favored by 1/2 pt this evening against Duke, which is why I did not hedge out of my MSU future today. I actually rolled with Mich St m/l for a few bucks v Duke today. Couldn't pass up the opportunity (perceived).

    Ah, so you do have MSU & UVA in the finals. Just maybe not covering to get there.

    Yes, I do have the favorites favored in these matchups. But, I also had UK favored just slightly (certainly not by 4 or 4.5) today as well, but Auburn won outright anyway. Left money on the table there as I did not bother with that matchup.

    Thatís kind of what Iím thinking.

    The injury to Auburnís player is going to catch up to them and theyíre just happy making their first Final Four.

    Michigan State just blew Georgia was against Duke. Itís hard for me to believe that they can keep the same intensity against Tech. Tech is going to make them miserable.

    UVA/Tech in one of the most boring championship games ever...Butler/UConn style.

    UVA wins it all and the narrative is set for how they overcame last yearís debacle.

    Hey, I think you're right. Guy tried to elevate on the break and looked as though he tweaked his left knee.

    These games have been gold for in-play.... lots of line movement, especially during commercial breaks.

    It's even better when the favorite goes down (preferably into + territory), one or two baskets and the odds swing back dramatically. Good stuff.

    I donít do much live betting these days but back in the day I loved it for ncaa hoops. Couldnít tell ya how many times I ended up having multiple plays on both teams at plus money. Imagine that be incredibly doable this tourney as nobody can put together a full 40 minutes! Crazy as it sounds there no worse feeling than the team you on starting strong and getting a nice lead, it been a forgone conclusion that they blow it!! Lol

    Tech the only team left I had going this far so gotta root for them! Probably worst brackets Iíve ever had and not like I usually do great!! Lmao.

    I been doubting sparty all tourney and that not going well at all! Iíd love to say tech should win the turnover battle and they should but i thought duke would as well and sparty dominated in the turnover department. Tech did turnover a very good ball secure zags team 16x, way above their season average.

    Sparty handled Michigan 3x but tech stifled Michigan in a way sparty never did. Tech defense has been incredible all tourney, only the zags have even sniffed a point per possession which was way below their season numbers where they had most efficient offense in the country! Sparty held a 15-0 transition point edge on puke, no way tech letís them get out in transition. A very good buffalo offense only had 1 game all season they didnít average a point per possession and tech held them to a 87.7 offensive efficiency game!

    Tech defense is 100% legit! Of course sparty is not far behind them in that regard. Tech tops in the nation w a 84.1 defensive efficiency rating while sparty 8th just over 90. Since start of big 10 tourney only 2 teams have managed better than a point per. Canít imagine we see more than a 65 possession pace in this game, gonna be a real struggle for either to achieve a point per possession. Gotta lean to the under imo.
