ELITE 8 BEST BETS: DAY 1

CAN'T DO WORSE THAN YESTERDAY

NCAAM BEST BET SEASON RECORD: 54-50-3

MARCH
USA Today


With only two games today, might get a little specific with these best bets.


Illinois @ UConn: Illinois Team Total UNDER 73.5

DK -120

FD -118


UConn plays at a glacial pace. They 307th in the nation in possessions per game and no team has been able to move them off of that grind. Illinois could with their great individual talents, but I think Donovan Clingan roaming the paint is going to make Terrence Shannon Jr. and Marcus Domask have to work extra hard on a possession by possession basis. The Illini's game against Iowa State also showed how comfortable they are slowing it down and adapting to the pace of their opponent, and that makes me think they won't push the pace if they don't feel comfortable. UConn's defense can also tighten the screws on anybody has held some great offenses down.



Clemson @ Alabama(-3.5)

DK -112

FD -108


Stop me if you heard this before; I thought this was March Madness not the CFB Playoff!!!!!!!!!! In all seriousness I underestimated both of these teams but the two teams are playing great ball. Clemson beating Baylor should've set off more alarm bells for me, they're just good. I do think they're just good but Alabama is making their shots. They're lunatics and stick to their guns when it comes to pushing tempo to a breakneck pace, and they liver and die by the three. I think the Tide keeps up their strong offense and beats them by a touchdown, maybe two.
