With our free pick for Wednesday we will play North Carolina –1 ½ against Duke. North Carolina has 3 straight wins at Cameron Indoor Stadium. North Carolina sports the best starting 5 in college basketball. Outstanding North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson’s excellent ball handling ability will make it difficult for Duke to defend in transition. The Tar Heels inside game will help lead them to the pointspread cover, as they are bigger and stronger inside the paint than the Blue Devils.
With our free pick for Tuesday we will play Villanova –4 ½ against Marquette. Villanova are winners of 5 straight which includes a 17 point home win against Syracuse. Villanova’s last 3 home wins were all by double digits including a 10-point victory against Pittsburgh. Villanova has been getting good offensive production from their bench. Both teams have good guard play but Villanova’s big man inside Dante Cunningham will provide the Wildcats the winning margin for a pointspread victory.
