Kentucky vs. Kansas Free Pick

Kentucky vs. Kansas

Well the Final Four have been reduced to two. Sixty-eight teams entered March Madness with high hopes. All but two have gone home disappointed. Monday night April 2 at the Superdome in New Orleans, one team will go home as the National Champion and one will go home wondering what could have been.

The Kentucky Wildcats meet the Kansas Jayhawks to determine the 2011/12 National Collegiate Basketball Champion. Kentucky is the definite favorite, as they have the thoroughbreds needed to win the championship. Freshmen Anthony Davis was recently named the Player of the Year by the Associated Press.

It will be difficult for Kansas to matchup with all the Kentucky heavyweights who will be off to the NBA much sooner than later. The Kentucky defense is strong and will give the big Kansas front line fits on the inside. In Kentucky’s win over Louisville in the Final Four, they held the Cardinals to only 34% shooting overall and 36% from beyond the arc.

Kentucky was outrebounded in the game but much of that was due to an extra-effort by the Cardinals on the offensive boards. They did not shoot well from the charity strip and those two things cannot persist in the championship game if they want to beat Kansas.

Kansas will go once again to their heart and soul  Thomas Robinson. If Kentucky holds him in check, the title is theirs for the taking. If Robinson can have an extraordinary game and help get Davis in early foul trouble, the Jayhawks could steal the win.

Kansas must use the strength of their defense to win Monday. Jeff Withey played well against Jared Sullinger, but Davis is quicker, more agile and athletic than Sullinger. Kansas had 11 more boards than Ohio State and they must out rebound Kentucky if they hope to take the title home.

Currently the Wildcats are a 6-point favorite with the total sitting at 138. The Wildcats must keep Davis from getting into foul trouble and they need to control the boards. If they do those two things then their athleticism and talent will carry them to a National Championship.

Pick: Kentucky (-6) Total: UNDER

Duke vs. UNC Free Pick

Duke Basketball

All bragging rights will be on the line March 3 in Cameron Indoor Stadium when the North Carolina Tar Heels travel a few miles to take on the Duke Blue Devils in Durham, North Carolina. Both teams have identical records this season. Both teams are 26-4 overall and 13-2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. On paper, there is not a more evenly matched game.

The Tar Heels are 16-13 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS on the road. They are averaging 16 more points per game than their defense is allowing. Duke is 13-17ATS this season and just 7-13 ATS at home. Their offense is scoring 10 points more than their defense gives up each game.

The trends also point to an evenly matched game. The Heels are 5-0 SU in their last five road games and 4-2 SU in the their last six games playing at Duke. The total has been UNDER 6 out of the last 9 times the two teams have played at Duke.

Duke also is 5-0 SU in their last five games, but just 1-7 ATS in their last eight games at Cameron. Duke has held a distinct advantage over North Carolina in the last six games the two have played head to head. The Blue Devils are 5-1 SU in those six games. The total has been UNDER in 7 of the last 10 games played head to head.

The game will determine the winner of the ACC and who is given the higher seed not only in the ACC postseason tournament but also in the NCAA tournament that follows.

Kentucky vs. Georgia Free Pick

Kentucky Hoops

The Southeastern Conference schedule is coming to an end along with the regular season. March madness is just around the corner and Kentucky will look to keep their number one ranking in the nation in tact when they host the Georgia Bulldogs March 1 at Rupp Arena. The Wildcats are 28-1 on the season and if they win their remaining two regular season games and the SEC tournament, they are sure to get the number one seed in the NCAA tournament.

The Wildcats are just 11-17 ATS this season partly due to the large point spreads they play against each game. The team is so dominating that odds makers must make the spread nearly always in double figures. The Bulldogs are just 13-15 overall this season and are playing for nothing more than team and school pride.

Off late the Bulldogs have not fared well as they are just 1-6 SU in their last seven games. When they play away against the Wildcats, the Bulldogs are just 4-15 SU over the last 19 games the two have played at Rupp Arena.

The Wildcats on the other hand have fared much better. They are 5-0 SU in their last five games. Kentucky has not lost in their last 20 games and has just this game against Georgia and one more against Florida to end their regular season. Anthony Davis continues his dominant play with a 14.3 points per game average and nearly 10 rebounds per game.

In the last meeting between the two schools, Kentucky won by 13 points 57-44. The Bulldogs will try to slow the ball down and take time off the clock with their possessions in order to give Kentucky fewer looks at the basket. The Wildcats however, will prevail SU but the Bulldogs look like a good bet ATS.

Oklahoma State vs. Kansas Free Pick

Kansas Hoops

The Kansas Jayhawks will try to keep up their winning ways and stay on top of the Big 12 conference whenthey travel to Oklahoma to face the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Jayhawks are currently in first place in the conference by two games while the Cowboys are well down the line in seventh place.

Thomas Robinson leads the Jayhawks with a scoring average of 17.8 per game and in rebounds with 11.9 per game. Tyshawn Taylor is scoring at a 16.7 clip per game and leads the team in assists with 5 per game.

Three players lead the Cowboys in scoring with Keiton Page leading that trio with a 16.2 points per game average. Leading the team in rebounding is Markel Brown with 5.3 per game. The Cowboys do not have anyone averaging more than 2.2 assists per game.

That included a win against the Cowboys earlier in February 81-66 at home. The Cowboys however are just 2-3 SU in their last five games. They have beaten Texas and Texas A&M during that stretch.

The two teams are vastly different in the quality of players they have. They also play two different styles of basketball. Kansas will be playing on the road but they have fared well with a record of 7-4 SU and 5-5 ATS. The Jayhawks will defeat the Cowboys in this game SU and the total should be UNDER as the Jayhawks defense will shut down the cowboys weak offense.

Georgetown vs. Notre Dame Free Pick

Georgetown Basketball

The Irish are 20-9 overall this season and in third place in the conference. The Irish have a very balanced attack offensively as four players are averaging between 12.4 and 14 points per game. Leading the team in rebounds is Jack Cooley with 9.3 a game. The team’s balanced scoring helps them, as an opponent cannot concentrate on any one player.

The Hoyas are 21-6 overall and just one game behind Notre Dame in the conference in fourth place. Leading the Hoya offense is Jason Clark who averages 14.5 points per game. The Hoyas also have very balanced scoring with two other players in double figures averaging between 11 and 13 points per game.

Georgetown is 3-2 SU over their last five games with losses to Seton Hall and the same St. John’s team that beat the Irish. The scoring for both teams is low with both averaging in the mid 60s per game.
