New Mexico vs. UNLV,
03/16/2013 18:00 EDT,
Score: 63 - 56
Point Spread: +3/-110 New Mexico
On Saturday the Mountain West Side is on New Mexico.. Game 533 at 6:00 eastern. The Lobos have enough here to offset the UNLV Home court as they are 6-1 last 7 Conference tourney games, 18-2 vs teams who allow 65 or less, 7-1 after scoring 60 or less, 17-2 after allowing 60 or less, 4-0 with 1 or less day of rest, 19-5 vs winning teams, including 9-3 vs OP 50 RPI Teams and 2-0 with road loss revenge and 3-0 ats in championship games. UNLV is 10-23 ats off a conference win and 1-5 ats off 2 wins. Look for New Mexico at the very least to cover.
On Saturday the MAC Championship side is on Akron. They fit a nice system here tonight and have won both games vs Ohio U pretty easily this season. They have won 3 of 4 vs teams ranked 50 to 100 in the rpi, while Ohio U has dropped 3 of 4 vs teams ranked 50 to 100. Akron is 12-2 after allowing 60 or less, 9-4 vs winning teams, 6-1 straight up and ats of late in this tournament and is taking points. Ohio U is 2-10 ats vs winning teams, 0-4 ats in neutral court games when the total is 135 to 140 and has dropped 5 of 6 to the spread in this tournament of late. Akron is a live dog here tonight.
In The Big 12 our selection is on Kansas. Game 532 at 6:00 eastern. The Line is reasonable here and for those saying this Kansas team is not as good as years past I offer this one. The Jayhawks have 12 WINS OVER TOP 50 RPI Teams, thats 3 more than any other team in the Country. Once Kansas St realizes they cant beat Kansas they will close shop like they always do. They have lost 36 of 39 to Kansas, so revenge does not apply here. Not with State 7-15-straight up and ats with 20+ Point Blowout revenge. This only their 2nd final of this tournament, and they may be tight. The Jayhawks are 8-3 in the final of this tournament. Look for Kansas to cover.
