Round 2 Picks: A10 Tournament

So I am a little late with this and missed the Charlotte/SLU game that started at 12…so I won’t pick that game.

Butler (-2.0) vs La Salle (+2.0)
I think La Salle is a good match-up against Butler. La Salle did beat Butler last time these teams played. La Salle is also averaging 76ppg in their last 5 games while giving up 71ppg in the same span. Butler, meanwhile, is averaging 65ppg while giving up 68ppg over their last 5. La Salle wins and they definitely cover the 2.0.

St. Joe’s (+7.0) vs VCU (-7.0)
I have VCU winning outright as they are just way more talented than St. Joe’s plus their defense will shut this Hawks team down. VCU covers but it will be because of fouling at the end of the game so if you bet on this game, expect it kind of close until the end.

UMass (+5.0) vs Temple (-5.0)
I have Temple winning this game. However, I think UMass covers. This will be a great game with Chaz Williams and Khalif Wyatt both trying to out-perform each other. There will also be a lot of 3’s. UMass has been keeping it close for the most part this year (win or lose).

So there we have it. Just know I am batting .500 in sports betting so don’t blame me for my wrong picks….and send a piece of the winnings if I am right.

A10 Conference Tournament Begins Today

Richmond (-4.5) vs Charlotte (+4.5)
Not only do I think Charlotte covers, I think Charlotte wins this game outright.

Dayton (+4.5) vs Butler (-4.5)
Last time these 2 played, Butler won by 6 at Daayton. However, Dayton has covered 3 of their last 4 (including their last 2 games). I just think Butler will be too much (especially on a neutral court) for Dayton. Butler fans travel well and I expect the crowd to be very pro-Butler. Butler covers the 4.5.

St. Joe’s (-1.0) vs Xavier (+1.0)
Same as the Richmond/Charlotte game. I expect Xavier to win (and therefore they cover the 1.0.

George Washington (+2.5) vs UMass (-2.5)
UMass has been inconsistent this year but they are just too talented going against this GW team. I think UMass covers and I don’t think it will be close.
