It's very low. Too low for me. Texas Tech did exactly what they wanted with Michigan State, which is they doubled up on Cassius Winston and pretty much stopped him, and took away the inside. Between Culver and Moretti and Mooney, Tech will be able to score some on Virginia. It won't take many points from the Cavaliers to hit the Over here.

I like Texas Tech. Culver made the difference Saturday at the end of the game. Virginia is really lucky, they shouldn't be here. The refs blew the (double-dribble) call at the end of the game that would have won Auburn the game. Now Bruce Pearl knows how Sean Payton feels. But Texas Tech has players who can score, and I don't think Virginia does against its defense. I've ridden Texas Tech this far, I'm not getting off now.

I think Auburn?s going to beat them. The Tigers are just incredible, without their best player they outscored Kentucky, and they can score in a lot of different ways. I?ve been following them the whole way. Virginia?s not going to be able to score against them. They can?t score, and Auburn has too much quickness for them.

I really like Texas Tech. Tech will smother Michigan State on defense, and they?ve got Jarrett Culver, he?s just so good. The Raiders are very well-coached. It?s going to be a low-scoring game, it?s going to be a battle, but I think Texas Tech is the team.

Kentucky has P.J. Washington, that makes a big difference, and the Wildcats have Tyler Herro, who wants the ball at the end of the game and comes through. He?s a great shooter. And I think they?re too big for Auburn. Auburn controlled the boards against North Carolina, but I don?t think they?re going to do that against Kentucky, especially without Chuma Okeke.
