Tennessee vs Auburn
Sharife Cooper is most likely out for the rest of the season and I think Auburn is dead in the water. Auburn has lost their last 5 out of 6 and have no postseason to look forward to with a postseason ban so I really think they are just packing it in and looking forward to spring break early. It definitely looked like that in the last game vs Florida. After the loss to Baylor, Auburn crumbled – 1-4-1 ATS since and they’ve lost 6 of their last 7 games and lost to Georgia who is not good and they were 9 point favorites in that game. Tennessee will lock up on defense here and hopefully can get some shots going in early so they are flowing offensively. Although their history is rough with Auburn losing and not covering in their last 5 H2H I do believe they get over the hurdle and pick up a solid road win. If Tennessee can come out -3/-3.5 I would be looking to bet on the Volunteers.
Florida vs Kentucky
Believe it or not I am starting to believe in Kentucky which just sounds crazy after everything they have done this season. Kentucky back in January already took it to Florida on the road and won by 18 and as this is a revenge spot for the Gators I just think Kentucky has too much momentum and at Rupp Arena this team plays a lot better. I think the script has flipped for Kentucky and they proved they can win a close game vs Auburn at home and then beat Tennessee by double digits. I have faith in this team and they have a high ceiling because their guards are coming into form and they are so athletic they can match up with anyone. I think the spread will be close to a PK and I would lean Kentucky here with slight margin.
Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma
How the hell did Oklahoma lose to Kansas State? Bounce back here you would have to think after they probably got chewed out in the locker room. I expect urgency from the tip and I am not sold on Oklahoma State in big games on the road. I think both teams are slightly overrated, but I do think with Reeves and Manek and some veteran players Oklahoma does enough here to edge out Cunningham and the Cowboys. Oklahoma is 4-0 at home vs OSU last 4 and I think that trend continues here. If Oklahoma opens up -2.5/-3 I would be looking to back the Sooners here.
Marquette vs UCONN
This is a great spot for a Money Line Parlay spot. I think with Bouknight back UCONN is a really solid team and I think this is a let down spot for Marquette after traveling to North Carolina and beating UNC. This is a must win game for the Huskies and considering they beat Marquette previously with Bouknight shooting 3-12 and winning by 11 I think we can see margin here again. Spread may be close, but UCONN should be in control for the majority of the game. I think this can be your solid money line piece paired with Baylor (vs Kansas)
