North Carolina -3 over Marquette

The Tar Heels can expose the Golden Eagles’ poor defensive rebounding with big man Armando Bacot as long as the team can protect the ball against Marquette’s turnover driven defense. UNC is the more reliable offense, and they will dominate the boards against Marquette. Take the Heels and give the points. Tar Heels 77  Golden Eagles 58

 

Kentucky -18 over Saint Peter’s

The Wildcats have their most experienced team in years, and Saint Peter’s will lose this game but they are too good of a team to lose by more than 18 points. UK 87  Saint Peter’s 77

Murray State -1.5 over San Fransisco

Keep in mind these are two teams in the top 25 in NET in the country. This isn’t just a mid-major matchup. Both of these teams can make a run in this tournament, and this game is so even it’s hard to pick. The Dons have played in the more challenging conference and are more battle-tested than Murray State. I know the Racers are the popular pick around the country, but I take the Dons to cover. Dons 72  Racers 70

 

UCLA -14 over Akron

The Zips’ claim to fame is almost beating Ohio State at the beginning of the season. The Bruins have most of last season’s final four teams back intact. The Bruins are just too strong for the zips in this one, take the Zips and the points but the Bruins will get the win. Bruins 82  Zips 71

 

Purdue -15.5 over Yale

Yale is nowhere near Purdue in talent or anything else for that matter. Yale should be seeded even lower than what they are. This will be quick and easy for Purdue. Boilers 83  Yale 63

Texas -1 over Virginia Tech

This is one of the most intriguing first-round matchups out there. You have a Virginia Tech team that is the hottest in the entire country against a Texas team that is one of the best defensive teams in the country. To find the best odds go check out the best bookmakers! The Longhorns did not finish the season strong, and I think this game will be a complete toss-up because I think Texas defense will give the Hokies offense issues. I will uncomfortably lean towards the Hokies in this matchup, but it’s a coin toss game to me. Virginia Tech 65  Texas 63

 

Saint Marys -2.5 over Indiana

At the end of the season, Saint Mary’s schedule was brutal, and the Hoosiers got here with two substantial big ten tournament wins. This game will be a razor-close decision, and I think the difference will be Race Thompson and Trace Jackson Davis inside and with Xavier Johnson running the offense, the Hoosiers get the win. Indiana 68  Saint Mary’s 67
