We are days away from Selection Sunday making this a very important week for a lot of teams. Bubble teams are making their final push and top tier squads are locking in their top seeds. Keep reading for the top games that I am targeting for my weekly college hoops bets.
College Basketball Must Bet Games March 9-15
Monday, March 9
San Francisco vs Gonzaga
When the Zags and Dons met on March 9, Gonzaga blasted San Francisco 71-54. Zags can’t show weakness or they can kiss a 1-seed goodbye. That’s why they again dominate the Dons.
Tuesday, March 10
North Carolina vs Virginia Tech
In past ACC Tournaments, these two would play their first game on a Thursday or Friday. Not in this year’s tournament. North Carolina must win the ACC tourney to ensure a Big Dance bid. They won’t lose in the first game to VA Tech.
Wednesday, March 11
Miami vs Clemson
Both streams struggled this season. Clemson, though, beat both Florida State and Louisville. Even though Miami beat Clemson in the last head-to-head, the Tigers won’t fall in the rematch.
Washington vs Arizona
These two just fought on March 7. Washington came out ahead 69-63. Arizona heads into this game like icicles. They’re 1-4 SU and ATS in their last 5. But the Wildcats have talent. They’ll pick it up in the Pac-12 Tournament. Go Wildcats.
St. John’s vs Georgetown
G’Town beat the Johnnies 73-72 in the last game. There’s a chance Georgetown bounces in a bad way on Wednesday, though. The Hoyas almost pulled off the upset against Villanova. They lost by a point, 70-69. They might have nothing left for the Red Storm. Back St. John’s.
Thursday, March 12
Texas Tech vs Texas
Texas Tech ended the regular season on a sour note. The Red Raiders lost 4 in a row, including 68-58 to Texas. That loss was ugly. It happened in Lubbock. Texas outscored the Red Raiders 38-21 in the second half. That shouldn’t happen again. Although Texas Tech is cold, they can pick it up and win and cover in the rematch.
West Virginia vs Oklahoma
Oklahoma beat West Virginia 73-62 in the last head-to-head. But West Virginia won their last couple of games, including a 76-64 win over Baylor in their final regular-season game. Back the Mountaineers to get the “W”.
Marquette vs Seton Hall
This is a huge Big East Tournament Round 1 match up. A couple of weeks ago, Marquette challenged Seton Hall for first place in the conference. But the Golden Eagles ended their regular season on a 1-4 SU and ATS losing streak. On March 12, Seton Hall rocks Marquette.
