Joe’s Against the Spread Pick
Both teams shoot poorly and play bad defense. They’ve met twice this season with total scores of 129 and 136. With both teams fighting for their tournament lives and it expected to be a tight game, I would expect to see a spattering of free throws at the end of the game giving the OVER 129 a good shot of hitting.
