*******UPDATED******* MARCH 7th
I gave out these lines before the real lines were out. I am pretty accurate. Here is what I gave out earlier this week and the actual lines.
Wisconsin -2.5 (actual line is -2)
Kentucky -2(actual line is Fla -3 , so I sucked on this one)
Creighton -5 (actual line is -3.5)
Dayton -16(actual line is -22)
Oregon -8(actual line is -7.5)
Saturday, March 7
Wisconsin @ Indiana
Harry’s Hypothesis is Badgers -2.5
Wisconsin just might be the hottest team in the Big 10 coming into this affair. The Hoosiers are good at home be overall are to inconsistent. Indiana hasn’t won three games in a row since December 21st (wins over UConn, Nebraska, and Notre Dame).
71 Wisconsin Badgers
66 Indiana Hoosiers
Kentucky @ Florida
Harry’s Hypothesis is Wildcats -2
Kentucky had won eight in a row and 12 of its last 13 games until Tuesday nights shocking loss at home to Tennessee. A lot of critics expected this Gators team to be much better and have been a bit of a disappointment. Kentucky had won eight in a row and 12 of its last 13 games until Tuesday nights shocking loss at home to Tennessee.
They do have wins at home against LSU, Auburn, and Alabama and a win here should solidify their spot in the NCAA tourney. Kentucky was a close one between these two just a few days ago, lets swim with the Gators in a game that does not have much meaning for Kentucky.
74 Kentucky Wildcats
79 Florida Gators
Seton Hall @ Creighton
Harry’s Hypothesis is Blue Jays -5
Myles Powell is averaging 22 points a game for the Pirates who are 7-1 this season on the road in the Big East. Creighton has a dynamite player as well in Ty-Shon Alexander who is getting 14 points a game, five rebounds, and is shooting 40% from three-point range. Last weekend Creighton lost to St. John’s by 20 on the road, but if this phony line is -5 like I believe it will be Creighton will be the play especially if Seton Hall rests some players in anticipation of the Big East tournament.
70 Seton Hall Pirates
81 Creighton Blue Jays
George Washington @ Dayton
Harry’s Hypothesis is Flyers -16
College Gameday will be in Dayton on Saturday for the first time ever. My good friend and cohost of our award nominated podcast Against All Odds with Cousin Sal, Darren The Parlay Kid is a graduate of Dayton and he couldn’t be more pumped up for this special event. Dayton has the player of the year in Obi Toppin who averages 20 points a game and 8 rebounds. Last Friday the Flyers shot an absurd 27 of 28 field goals from two-point range against Davidson and in this spot not even a President could help out the Colonials.
55 George Washington Colonials
77 Dayton Flyers
Stanford @ Oregon
Harry’s Hypothesis is Ducks -8
The Cardinal may need this road win for an at-large birth in the NCAA tournament, but the Ducks may need this win for the Pac 12 title on Saturday. Stanford has only one favorable nonconference win this season (Oklahoma) and at one stretch had lost seven of eight games. Oregon won the first matchup and they get it done in bigtime fashion again.
61 Stanford Cardinal
76 Oregon Ducks
Sunday, March 8
Iowa @ Illinois
Harry’s Hypothesis is Fighting Illini by 3.5
We all know that the Hawkeyes struggle on the road and this game honestly means way more to Illinois. Ayo Dosunma has been the main guy the second half of the season for the Illini. Dosunma leads the team in minutes played at 33 per game and is averaging 16 points per game. He has led the team in scoring in more than half of the last 20 games Illinois has played and will do so here in a home win versus Iowa.
59 Iowa Hawkeyes
68 Illinois Fighting Illini
Good Luck !! Harry.
