Free Play from Doc’s Sports. Take #876 Under in Syracuse vs Duke (9:35p.m., Friday March 23 CBS) Nobody is giving Syracuse a chance in this game since Duke is very familiar with the zone as they see it every year in ACC play. Therefore, the only chance that they have is to really slow the game down and keep Duke under 60 points. Syracuse has done this in three straight NCAA Tournament games and they do have some size to match-up with Carter and Bagley down low. Syracuse has gone under the posted total in 7 of their last 9 NCAA Tournament games. Duke has gone under the posted total in 8 of the last 10 games.

Florida State vs Gonzaga Free Pick March 22, 2018
The Bulldogs will be a six point favorite in their Sweet 16 matchup versus Florida State, and I like the underdog in this spot. Gonzaga just barely avoided a first round upset against UNC Greensboro, winning by a score of 68-64. They trailed by five points in the final six minutes of their second round game against Ohio State, but rallied to win 90-84. The Seminoles resume in the tournament so far is significantly more impressive. They crushed Missouri by double digits in the first round, and went on to upset #1 seed Xavier in their second round matchup. BPI favors the Bulldogs, but don't be fooled by their impressive stats. They racked up a lot of wins, and scored a lot of points against the minnows of the West Coast Conference. Gonzaga has been one of the most overrated teams in the country over the last decade, and that is evidenced by the fact that they are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 NCAA Tournament games. They have also failed to cover in five straight against teams from the ACC. I'll take the points with a red hot Florida State team.
I'm recommending a play on Utah plus the points on Wednesday. Saint Mary's didn't come close to covering at home against Washington on Monday and now the Gaels face another Pac-12 school that comes off a dominating 95-71 win over LSU. Utah shot 57.9 percent and hit 14 of 27 from 3-point range against the Tigers, who were never in the game. Sedrick Barefield led five double figure scorers with 17 points and Justin Bibbins added 16 points for the Utes, who are 9-4-2 ATS their last 15 games and the Gaels are just 2-7 ATS their last nine games. Utah allows opponents just a .417 shooting percentage and held LSU to 44.1 percent from the field. Saint Mary's is 1-5 ATS its last six games after a win and 2-5 ATS its last seven home contests. Also, the Gaels are 1-5 ATS their last six versus teams with winning records. We'll recommend Utah plus the points on Wednesday. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
This is a 1* Free Play on UTSA.
This is the quarterfinals of the CIT tournament. Sam Houston State enters off a 69-62 win over Eastern Michigan, receiving 19 points and four boards from Josh Delaney. UTSA advanced with a solid 76-69 win against Lamar, getting 16 points and eight boards from Deon Lyle. The Bearkats haven’t performed well on the road (they’re also just 4-7 ATS in their last 11 as the underdog, compared to 8-4 ATS as a fav for the Roadrunners this season), and we think UTSA will take advantage (note that the Roadrunners are also 4-2 ATS in all tournament games this year, while the Bearkats are just 6-8 ATS in their last 14 tournament contests.) We think UTSA is worthy of a second look in this particular matchup.
Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach CBB Game #777 Wednesday Free Pick Jacksonville State Gamecocks (+) vs North Texas Mean Green @ 8 ET - Long-time followers know I love to look at road teams in situations like this. Wednesday's match-up in the CBI features the bigger name team, North Texas, at home versus the smaller school, Jacksonville State, and yet the Mean Green opened up as essentially a "pick'em" in this game. Just take the home team to win the game, right? It's easy, isn't it? Of course it is never that easy and I love grabbing the small road dog in spots like this. The Gamecocks are 8-3 ATS as an underdog this season and the Mean Green are only 3-5 ATS as a favorite this season. Jacksonville State also 9-4 SU after allowing 60 points or less and North Texas is 2-8 SU after scoring 80 points or more this season! Free Pick JACKSONVILLE STATE
