It would be an understatement to say that the Liberty Flames didn’t have the toughest of schedules with the 279th ranked SOS in the nation. They did get by Mississippi State as a 7-point underdog lighting it up from three-point land hitting 12 of 25 attempts. They’ll need a repeat of that to stay with the Hokies on Sunday. See if Matt is laying the points or backing the dog in this contest.
Big Ten rival Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Michigan State Spartans meet in the round of 32. The Gophers used a lethal 3-point game to win their opener, but face a Spartans club that is allowing just 29.9% from behind the arc in neutral court games. MSU throttled them by 24 points in an earlier match-up so is a repeat the logical bet? Read Dan’s analysis and get his tournament pick.
The SEC champion Auburn Tigers take to the court at Vivint Smart Home Arena to battle the Kansas Jayhawks in a solid Round of 32 game. Auburn just got by a pesky NMSU 78-77 team in their NCAA tournament opener and Kansas put a 87-53 beat down on an overmatched Northeastern club. Some bettors are starting to wonder if the SEC overrated and the public is favoring the Jayhawks. Hmmm. Read on to get Dan’s pick on this game.
An interesting Round of 32 match-up has the Villanova Wildcats versus the Purdue Boilermakers tipping off at 8:40 PM on Saturday night.

Read on to get our prognosticator’s point spread pick.
