North Carolina -8 vs. Arkansas
This game looks like a mismatch on paper, and I think it will be a mismatch on the court as well.
Pick: UNC -8
Louisville -1 vs. Michigan
This is a fantastic matchup between two very talented teams. The Wolverines are maybe the hottest team in the country and are coming off a hard-fought victory over the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Louisville to me has been a top 10 team all year with wins over teams like Kentucky and Duke.
Pick: Louisville -1
Baylor -6 vs. USC
Baylor looked like one of the best teams in the country until the last month of the season. USC I think has been one of the more underrated teams this season.
Oregon -5 vs. Rhode Island
Oregon has rolled along most of the season, that is until the PAC 12 Tournament when they lost one of their top players. Rhode Island much like USC is an underrated squad that could be primed to pull the upset.
Pick Rhode Island +5
Kansas -8.5 vs. Michigan State
Michigan State has been a disappointment all year long, but as long as Coach Izzo is on the bench, they are dangerous. Kansas has to be one of the favorites in this tournament, and I think they win this game, but the Spartans will give them all they can handle.
Pick: Michigan State +8.5
Kentucky -2 vs. Wichita State
The Wildcats were not impressive in a nine-point win over Northern Kentucky. Witchita State won a terrific game against the Dayton Flyers.
Pick: Kentucky -2
Duke -7 vs. South Carolina
The Gamecocks are a good Basketball team; I just think Duke is better.
Pick: Duke -7
UCLA -3 vs. Cincinnati
This is an intriguing matchup between a fast shooting, quick team and an in your face defensive team. The big question with the Bearcats as always will be can they shoot good enough to let the defense win them the game.
Pick: UCLA -3
