VIRGINIA TECH (-1.5) over Clemson
Always love the Hokies at home and they’ve been playing well lately, despite losing Chris Clarke. They already won at Clemson this year. It was close, but it was also the Tigers best shooting performance from three-point range all year. Clarke’s absence will have even less of an impact against the Tigers. Clemson is one of the worst rebounding teams in the league.
Auburn (-3.5) over LSU
Not all that different from betting that a team that has lost 13 games in a row is going to lose again. LSU has only really even come close to winning twice in that stretch. Auburn has its own problems, but they’re 11-1 in games that they’re the higher rated team and on this occasion they’re the better team by quite a bit.
VALPO (-13.5) over Milwaukee
Senior day for Alec Peters and Shane Hammink. Nobody loves anything more than white dudes at Valpo love Alec Peters, so it should be a great environment. The Crusaders also are trying to hold off Oakland and they need this one before they hit the road this weekend. They’ve already blown out the Panthers once this year.
GEORGIA TECH (-3.5) over NC State – 2u
Favorite heavy today, but we’ve got a team fighting for its tournament life at home going against a gutless team with a deadweight coach and it’s only 3.5?
Season: 126-108-1 (53.8%)
