Play Type: Premium

Golden State is obviously one of the best teams in the NBA, but the Warriors have their eyes on the playoffs, not a meaningless regular season game like tonight.  Golden State is also set to play six of their next seven games on the road with five of those games against playoff bound teams from the Western Conference.  It wouldn't be a surprise to see the Warriors rest some of their starters, especially if they get behind early.  Golden State is 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS over their last seven games while winning six of those games by 31, 18, 31, 19, 16, and 15 points.  That type of dominance is simply unsustainable, and we don’t expect the Warriors to repeat their last performance in Portland.  Golden State scored 122 points after shooting 60.2% (50-83) from the field and 46.2% (12-26) from three-point land.  

Memphis was terrible in their last home game, a 111-89 loss to Cleveland.  That was Memphis’ worst home loss since 2013, and off such an embarrassing performance, we expect a big bounce back effort tonight.  Heavy money came in on the Grizzlies in their last game, and Memphis was a 3.5-point home favorite over Golden State the last time they met in December; the Grizzlies won that game 105-98.  With Memphis off the blowout loss, the line is grossly inflated and there’s tremendous line value on the Grizzlies in this game.  Memphis is 27-8 at home this season where they own a +6.3 point differential.  Memphis’ defense is holding opponents to just 94 points per game on 45.8% shooting from the field and 33.2% shooting from three-point land.  Memphis is greatly undervalued in this game, and since they were embarrassed in their last home game, we’ll take the points with the Grizzlies in this game on Friday night.

Duke is obviously a good team as they come into tonight’s game with a 31-4 record.  They won their first two tournament games easily, but they played inferior competition.  In their last game against San Diego State, the Blue Devils faced a very good defense, but an offense that was one of the worst in the entire tournament.  Duke shot 54.5% (30-55) from the field and 42.9% (6-14) from three-point land on a San Diego State defense that only gave up 0.86 points per possession this season.  Duke’s defense had little to do since the Aztecs’ offense was horrendous at 0.98 points per possession this season.  Duke will now face a Utah team that is elite on both ends of the court as their offense averages 1.12 points per possession while their defense holds opponents to just 0.89 points per possession.  Duke is taking a monumental step-up in class versus Utah in this game.     

Utah won a difficult match-up against Stephen F. Austin in their first tournament game.  The Utes then took care of Georgetown rather easily, and now we expect Utah to take Duke right down to the wire.  Utah has their best team in a decade, and they match-up extremely well against Duke.  Utah has a terrific +14.1 point differential this season, and that shows how dominant of a team they’ve been.  The Utes’ defense is outstanding as they are holding opponents to just 57.2 points per game on 38.3% shooting from the field and 31.2% shooting from three-point land.  The Utah offense is averaging 71.3 points per game on 48.2% shooting from the field and 40.5% shooting from three-point land.  Utah is just as good as Duke, so we’ll take the points with the Utes in this game on Friday night.

Oklahoma is a good team with a terrific head coach in Lon Kruger, but the Sooners are up against it in this game against Michigan State.  Oklahoma got two dream setups for their first two games of the tournament, but the Sooners were sluggish in both games.  In their first game, Oklahoma played an overmatched Albany team that upset their conference tournament on a last-second shot.  Oklahoma then faced Dayton in their second game, and the Flyers were playing their third game in five days, and their sixth game in ten days.  Despite their opponents being in terrible scheduling and situational spots, Oklahoma only won both games by single digits.  Oklahoma wasn’t a good road team this season as they went just 5-6 in true road games, and just 10-9 overall away from home.  The Sooners only have a +1.2 point differential in away games this season while Michigan State is 13-7 in away games with a +5.3 point differential.  Those numbers clearly show that the Spartans played much better basketball than the Sooners away from home this season.

Michigan State is 6-1 over their last seven games, and they come into this game off a pair of solid tournament wins.  The Spartans completely dominated Virginia from the opening tip in their last game, and the Cavaliers would have been my second highest rated team if they made the Sweet 16.  Michigan State is the second best team in the Big 10, and the gap between them and Wisconsin is much closer than people think.  The fact that Michigan State was slated as a #7 seed was a joke.  Michigan State had the best defense in the Big 10 conference based on efficiency metrics, and they have a similar look to the vintage teams coached by Tom Izzo as they are tenacious on the offensive and defensive glass.  Michigan State’s defense is only allowing 63.1 points per game on 39.5% shooting from the field and 31.8% shooting from three-point land this season.  Michigan State is simply the better team, so we’ll lay the points with the Spartans on Friday night.

Arizona has played exceptional basketball all season.  The Wildcats come into this game with a sterling 34-3 record, and they’ve won fourteen consecutive games.  Arizona is an elite team on both ends of the court as they score 1.12 points per possession and only give up 0.86 points per possession.  Overall, Arizona averages 76.6 points per game on 48.6% shooting from the field and 36% shooting from three-point land.  The Wildcats’ defense is only giving up 59 points per game on 39.5% shooting from the field and 32.6% shooting from three-point land.  Arizona has also faced the tougher opponents to reach the Elite 8 based on my power ratings, including an easy win over a severely under-seeded Ohio State team.     

Wisconsin’s path to the Elite 8 has been easier than Arizona’s, and the Badgers should have lost to North Carolina on Thursday night.  Wisconsin has been flirting with losses recently as they’ve trailed by 7 points or more in a slew of recent games before rallying back to win.  Wisconsin has a woeful interior defense with 61% of the points scored upon them coming from 2-point range.  Arizona scores 56% of their points from inside the arc, so they have a huge edge inside the paint.  Wisconsin’s offense is highly efficient with 30% of their points coming from 3-point range, but Arizona’s perimeter defense is strong as only 27% of the points scored on them come from beyond the arc.  These two teams are real close, but with Arizona having the defensive edge, we’ll back the Wildcats in this game on Saturday night.  

9* Play ARIZONA (-).

Notre Dame vs. Kentucky
Kentucky
-11-102
  
Play Type: Premium

Notre Dame has had a nice season as the Irish come into this game with a 32-5 record.  Notre Dame had an easy draw in their first two games of this tournament with games against Northeastern and a banged-up Butler team.  Despite the weaker opponents, Notre Dame could have very well lost either of those games; they only beat Northeastern 69-65 and they needed overtime to beat Butler 67-64.  Notre Dame then took a major step-up in class against Wichita State, a team with a very strong defense.  The Irish shot incredibly well in that game as they hit 55.6% (30-54) from the field and 47.4% (9-19) from three-point land.  Notre Dame shot that well against a Wichita State defense that only gave up 0.88 points per possession.  Notre Dame is now facing the best defense in the country as Kentucky only gives up 0.81 points per possession, and it’s highly unlikely the Irish will repeat their shooing performance in this game.  If their three’s are not falling, Notre Dame will get run out of the gym in this game.     

Kentucky is obviously the best team in the country, and we expect the Wildcats to strut their stuff tonight.  Kentucky hasn’t played their ‘A’ game yet in this tournament, but with Notre Dame getting all the publicity for their last game, we expect Kentucky to go all out in this game.  Kentucky is an elite team on both ends of the court as they score 1.14 points per possession while only giving up 0.81 points per possession.  Overall, Kentucky averages 74.8 points per game on 46.6% shooting from the field and 34.4% shooting from three-point land.  Kentucky’s defense is only allowing 53.5 points per game on 34.8% shooting from the field and 26.7% shooting from three-point land.  Notre Dame’s weakness is defense, especially on the road where they allow 68.9 points per game on 46% shooting from the field and 34.4% shooting from three-point land.  Kentucky is the superior team with the significantly better defense, so we’ll lay the points with the Wildcats in this game on Saturday night.          

10* Play KENTUCKY (-).
