Jack's Free Pick Friday!
Marquette vs. West Virginia,
02/24/2012 21:00 EDT,
Score: 61 - 60
Point Spread: -1/-105 West Virginia
The West Virginia Mountaineers are in danger of missing the NCAA Tournament. A win tonight over a quality Marquette team would certainly help their cause. I like their chances of winning on their home floor in this one.
Motivated from an embarrassing road loss at Notre Dame last time out, the Mountaineers will return home hungry tonight. WVU is 17-11 on the season, including 10-4 where they are outscoring opponents by 8.2 points/game.
Head coach Bob Huggins is 17-6 ATS off a road loss as the coach of West Virginia. Huggins is 21-6 ATS off a road loss by 10 points or more in all games he has coached since 1997. Better yet, Huggins is 14-2 ATS after a loss by 15 points or more in all games he has coached since 1997. Needless to say, he'll have his troops ready to go tonight. Bet West Virginia Friday.
