Northeastern @ James Madison, James Madison -6
James Madison has a rather good team and a good defense being at 9-3 coming off a tough home loss to Hofstra that’s gonna sting and light a fire. The Northeastern Huskies are on a downfall to say the least. They have lost their last 4, they are 0-6 on the road, and they 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs a team with a winning record. The Dukes on the other hand, 6-1 at home and 8 straight ATS against teams with a losing record. All signs point James Madison.
Update: WV -2 has been upgraded to pick #2 due to Providence/Creighton being postponed.
Providence @ Creighton, Providence +4.5
There are two reasons that Creighton is favored, first is their common opponent Marquette, they got beat badly I believe it was because it was the Friars first game without Reeves in the lineup. And second, Creighton is at home. Playing home or away doesn’t mean much to this defensive minded Providence team as they are 14-2 and won 9 of their last 10. Creighton just got waxed but Villanova and I think that provides a solid game plan to win this game or at least keep it close enough to cover.
All the picks in one place:
South Carolina +15.5
Texas Tech +12
St. Louis +3
James Madison -6
West Virginia -2
