- The Crimson is 5-0 in last five overall matchups.
The Ivy League Final game between Pennsylvania Quakers and Harvard Crimson should go the Harvard way according to both teams’ recent trends. The line favors the Quakers at -2.0 who are 11-14 ATS in last 25 matchups. Pick the Crimson.
- The Mavericks are 4-1 in their last five games overall.
The Sun Belt Conference Tournament Finale that features Texas-Arlington Mavericks and Georgia State Panthers also feature the 1.5 ATS line favoring the Mavericks who should have the edge here, according to recent trends applicable to this matchup. Pick Mavericks.
- The Cougars are 4-1 in their last five showdowns overall.
The AAC Tournament Finale and probably the most interesting matchup of the day feature two teams that showed the most in this life or death system of competition, Houston Cougars and Cincinnati Bearcats. We’re all expecting a very exciting and close game, making the 4.5 points ATS line that favors the Bearcats a mismatch for the Cougars who made it this far by taking down these kinds of ATS lines. Pick the Cougars.
- Over is 17-11 in Quakers last 28 games overall.
The Ivy League Tournament Finale that features Harvard Crimson and Pennsylvania Quakers also hold a strong high-scoring tendency, especially with the O/U line expected to be set pretty low. The Crimson on the other side is 4-1 O/U in last dive overall duels. Pick Over.
- Under is 1-4 in Rams last five games overall.
The Atlantic 10 Tournament Final game between Davidson Wildcats and the Rhode Island Rams holds a couple of solid trends but Under in Totals look like the less risky one. These two are 3-6 O/U in last nine H2H matchups. Pick Under.
- Under is 1-4-1 in last six Volunteers/ Wildcats H2H matchups.
Two top teams in the SEC Conference when it comes to this year’s Tournament play have a long history of going Under in Totals when squaring off head to head and that’s where we will go today. The Volunteers are also 1-4 O/U in last five overall games.
