Last day of Best Bets before my Bracket is Posted, let's ride.


Brown @ Yale(-7.5)

DK -8.0 -108

FD -7.5 -120


The Bulldogs are solid. 21-9 and playing fundamentally great ball. Brown is on Cinderella run and they do cover a lot of spreads, but the clock typically strikes midnight on below .500 teams on their conference tournament run on their championship Sunday. I have the Bulldogs today.


Florida @ Auburn(-5.5)

DK -110

FD -110


I love the SEC because the scoring phenomenal and defense is optional. It's what has made them the most entertaining conference in the NCAA this season. Auburn is a black sheep in this regard where they rank 5th in adjusted defensive efficiency. Don't worry they also rank 10th in the country in adjusted offensive efficiency, their issue has been consistency over long stretches of time on that side of the ball. I say all of this because while Florida can fly up and down the court and seemingly score at will, they can get gummed up by efficient defense, as South Carolina exploited in their regular season matchup in early March. I expect the Tigers to be crowned SEC champs today, and to do so comfortably.




Wisconsin @ Illinois OVER 148.5

DK -108

FD -115


The Badgers and Illini are a combined 45-22 to the over this season. They've made it to the B1G title game by scoring more points and playing at a tempo that can't be matched. The Badgers are playing awesome basketball and Illinois has just been doing what they've done all year and playing at whatever tempo they need to to win. We should see a game in where at least one team is scoring 80.
