NCAA-B | Creighton vs Villanova
Play on: Villanova -10½ -110 at GTBets
Game Analysis

I'm recommending a play on Villanova minus the points on Saturday.  Both Creighton & the Wildcats are off SU losses as chalk.  The Jays lost at home to Providence, failing to score over the final 3+ minutes of gametime. Villanova fell victim to a lackadaisical effort and after taking a 49-42 lead over Butler, collapsed and finished on the wrong end of a season sweep.  But Villanova has owned this series of late, including an 80-70 win in Omaha earlier this season.  Mo Watson, Jr., played in that one yet the Jays couldn't gain the win at home.  Watson has been out for a while and CU has been quite average more often than not since.  In fact, Greg McDermott's squad has won just four of nine games SU & ATS without their star point-guard.  Meanwhile, the defending champs are 13-1 SU at home this season and play in their home finale today.  The 'Cats are not only the 8th most accurate shooting team in the nation, but hold opponents to 63 ppg.  They're 8-2 ATS off a loss on a 4-1 ATS run in the series.  I'm recommending a play on Villanova minus the points on Saturday.  Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.

NCAA-B | Santa Clara vs St. Mary's
Play on: UNDER 122½ -110
Game Analysis

This is the latest of FIVE Picks in CBB Saturday for Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach. This one is a Free Pick but the other FOUR are ALL star rated picks. Rickenbach also has a pair of star rated picks going in the NHL Saturday plus an EARLY star rated pick going in the NBA. You don't want to miss any of the action as, overall, Rickenbach ranks as the #1 ALL SPORTS LEADER for cumulative net profits in 2017 on multiple networks! The Bulldog has all sports premium pick streaks going of 101-62 (+$38,640) short-term and 132-79 (+$53,090) long-term! Don't miss a HUGE CARD Saturday!

Free Pick - Rickenbach CBB Game #674 Saturday UNDER the total in St Mary's Gaels vs Santa Clara Broncos @ 10 ET - This total opened up at a 114 yesterday afternoon. It is now as high as a 122.5 as of early gameday morning. An 8.5 point line move on a total that low means that this is a 7% move in terms of value and that is a huge. It is equivalent to a total of 160 going up to a 171 and moving a full 11 points and you just don't see moves like this very often. How can we possibly back an under that is such a low total? Well, for one thing we know we're getting a lot of value at 122.5 when we know odds makers only wanted to give us 114. But the key is understanding why this total was so low in the first place. This is the regular season finale for both teams so you know they're going to bring a strong effort. That said, defense is the key for St Mary's when they are focused. The only team that consistently got to the Gaels this season in conference action was Gonzaga but of course the Bulldogs are the #1 team in the country. Other than the two losses to the Bulldogs, the St Mary's D only slipped up one time in conference action when they allowed 70 points in a high-scoring win at Pacific. Incredibly the Gaels other West Coast Conference games saw them allow an average only 50 points per game! That is precisely why this total was set where it was today. Odds makers are expecting a 65-50 type game (line around a -15). That said, this line move has set up tremendous line value especially when you consider that St Mary's has allowed just 45 points per game in their last 3 home games against opponents other than Gonzaga! As for Santa Clara, they have allowed just 56 points per game in all their February games other than when Gonzaga lit them up (like the Bulldogs do against everybody). As you can see an ugly, grinding regular season finale for these two teams is quite likely here. Free Pick on UNDER the total in St Mary's for last Saturday night action. Best of luck, Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach

NCAA-B | VCU vs Rhode Island
Play on: Rhode Island -2 -105 at BMaker
Game Analysis

Jack's Free Pick Saturday: Rhode Island -2

It's now or never for the Rhode Island Rams.  At 18-9 on the season, they need some signature wins if they want to make the NCAA Tournament.  Saturday presents itself with one against VCU, which is an NCAA Tournament team that is in second place in the Atlantic 10, just a half-game behind Dayton for first.

The Rams will be 'all-in' for this game and you can expect their best effort of the season as a result.  The Rams are 8-3 in their last 11 games overall and should have beaten Dayton at home, but blew a big lead late as Dayton hit back-to-back 3-pointers in the final seconds to beat them 75-74.  If they can play with Dayton, they can certainly play with VCU.

VCU is 1-7 ATS when the total is 130 to 139.5 this season.  Rhode Island is 4-1 ATS in its last five games following a win.  Rhode Island is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games vs. a team with a winning record.  Bet Rhode Island Saturday.

Creighton at Villanova 3:00 ET

Wildcats (-) over Bluejays- No. 2 Villanova is off their 3rd loss of the season as Butler took them down for the second time breaking a seven-game win streak. The Wildcats know that despite that loss they can clinch the Big East regular season title and the No. 1 seed with a win here. It is 'Senior Day' at The Pavilion but I'm sure Jay Wright will have his squad focused. Trends say to take the Bluejays as they are 7-2 ATS in their last 11 road games and Villanova is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Creighton is still without Maurice Watson Jr. who added distraction to the mix by being charged with first degree sexual assault charges. Wildcats claw the birds...take VILLANOVA!

NCAA-B | North Carolina vs Pittsburgh
Play on: Pittsburgh +8 -110 at BMaker
Game Analysis

UNC at Pittsburgh

Pitt +8

UNC has a road game with Virginia coming next and then their home finale vs. Duke and may overlook the Panthers, who did win recent home games with Syracuse and Florida State. They beat Virginia at home too. 

UNC only beat Pitt 80-78 at home. The Panthers are led by a bunch of seniors and juniors like Artis, Young, Jeter and Jones as well as underclassman Cameron Johnson. I think UNC finds a way to win with Berry, Justin Jackson, Meeks, Hicks and Pinson but Pitt stays within the number.

NCAA-B | UCLA vs Arizona
Play on: UCLA +1½ -110 at 5Dimes
Game Analysis

Play - UCLA (Game 669). 

Edges - Bruins: 5-1 ATS in this series. Wildcats: 1-5 ATS home following a home game versus an opponent off an away game.  With the Bruins looking to avenge an 11-point home loss - their worst defeat of the season - look for them to improve to 6-1 SU against .875 or greater foes this season here tonight. We recommend a 1* play on UCLA.  Thank you and good luck as always.
