Throughout conference play it was clear that the Big Ten was head and shoulders over the Big 12. One of the teams that never could clear its own hurdle was Iowa State. In fact, to wrap up the regular season the Cyclones had lost six of their last eight games. Yet their conference tournament run was a confidence booster at the right time. Expect Ohio State to show proper fight, but for the Cyclones to wear out the Buckeyes in the second half. Grab Iowa State.

Texas Tech was known for strong defense throughout Big 12 conference play, but faded defensively to close out the season. Look for a veteran ball club in Northern Kentucky to keep the Red Raiders on their toes and for a higher-than-anticipated output. Grab the Over.

Fri 3/22

The Buffalo Bulls will aim to prove their worth as a high seed from the MAC Friday. They?ll take on an Arizona State team that showed flashes of a quality tournament team in its win over St. John's. That?s the gray area for the Sun Devils as they?ve shown an inability to put together 40 minutes of quality basketball in high-stake games. Grab the Bulls to be ready for the Sun Devils and advance to the round of 32.

The Celtics and 76ers are accustomed to having their games broadcast on nationally televised audiences. In fact each matchup has had exclusivity to a network on opening night of the season, Christmas, and their latest February matchup. Health and personnel additions are now advantages for both teams. Grab the under and what should be the top public bet game today.

The Orlando Magic will host their third straight home game as they take on the Pelicans. Chances of the Magic continuing to climb into contention for the final East playoff spot are on the line. They?ll face a Pelicans team that had lost six straight before a win in their last game over the Mavericks. Look for Orlando to have its way tonight against a Pelicans team with imbalanced scoring options.
