Xavier vs. Pittsburgh Free Pick (Mar. 26)

Xavier (27-7)  vs.  Pitt (30-4)

2009 NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 Action
Thursday March 26, 7:27 PM ET
Boston, MA TD Banknorth Garden – East Region

Xavier is 6-3-1 ATS in the last 10 games and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 as underdogs.  They are 4-0 ATS vs. the last 4 non-conference opponents.  The under has hit in the last 7 neutral site games and the last 4 games overall.It has also hit 4 out of the last 5 as an underdog.  Xavier prides themselves on tough defense and valuing every offensive possession.  They also have more of an inside presence than the first 2 teams that Pitt played had.

Pittsburgh is 1-4-1 in the last 6 neutral site games.  They are a dismal 1-5 ATS in the last 6 NCAA Tournament games.  The under is 5-1 in the last 6 neutral and 5-2 vs. non-conference opponents.  Sam Young scored 32 against Oklahoma State to barely pull out a win, but they didn’t cover the spread. 

 DeJuan Blair also added a quiet double-double.

Pittsburgh will win the game but they won’t cover the spread.  Xavier is too good defensively to let this game get out of hand.
