Seton Hall Pirates (-140) vs .NC State Wolfpack (+120)
First-round matchups between 8 and 9 seeds are always intriguing and one to keep an eye on the opening night of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament is the Seton Hall Pirates taking on the NC State Wolfpack. Seton Hall finished the season 25-10 for third place in the Big East, but the club has also put together an impressive 5-0 record against the spread over their last five games. The line against the Wolfpack has the Pirates as 2-point favourites. This is going to be a close match to the end, but put your money down on the Wolfpack, who went 14-14 ATS on the season.
Kentucky Wildcats (-235) vs. Davidson Wildcats (+195)
A pair of Wildcats will clash on Thursday as No. 5 Kentucky faces 12th-seeded Davidson in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. Kentucky finished the regular season with a respectable 24-10 record and the club has gone 7-1 straight up in its last 8 games. Kentucky, which has posted a 17-17 record against the spread this season, are favoured by 5 points going into the highly anticipated match. Kentucky has also defeated opponents by a margin of 16.4 points in the last five March Madness opening round games. Take the Kentucky Wildcats to win the game and cover the spread as well.
Michigan Wolverines (-600) vs. Montana Grizzlies (+400)
The Michigan Wolverines are coming off a Big Ten championship victory in which they dominated the tournament to win their second straight title. The No. 3 Wolverines will look to keep that momentum going on Thursday when they face the 14th-seeded Montana Grizzlies in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. The Wolverines head into the contest as the 10-point favourites — a hefty margin, but take into consideration that the Big Ten champs have done 22-11-1 against the spread this season. Michigan plays a smothering defense and John Beilen’s offense can run up the floor at an intense pace. Put your money on the Wolverines.
Texas Tech Red Raiders (-750) vs. Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks (+475)
Everyone loves a good upset. The first one of the NCAA tournament could very well come on Thursday night when the No. 3 Texas Tech Red Raiders face the 14th-seeded Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks. The Red Raiders are limping into the tournament, having won just 2 of their last 7 games as the club finished the 2017-18 campaign with a 24-9 record. Texas Tech also goes into the contest as the 11-point favourites, but will bettors put their trust in a team that’s gone 0-6-1 against the spread in its last 7 games? The Lumberjacks on the other hand have posted a 4-1 record ATS this season and head into Thursday’s match against Texas Tech with a lot to prove.
