3-Unit Play. Take #730 Dayton (-1.5)
over St. Joesephs
(1:30 p.m., Saturday, March 13)
This Dayton squad is a bit underrated. This is another short line that they should have no difficulty covering. Yes, St. Joes is a solid team, but Dayton is just plain better. St. Joes comes in to this game losers of two of their last three games and has failed to cover three of their last four games. The Hawks won the previous meeting 79-70 in St. Joes, but they shot over 45 percent from the floor against a solid defensive ball club like the Flyers. That won’t happen again today. Dayton, who is a decent shooting three point team (nearly 36 percent), only made 8-31 threes in that game, which won’t happen today. Take the Flyers here as they advance to the A10 Finals tomorrow.

*5-Unit* Play. Take #743 Seton Hall
(+7) over Villanova
(5:30 p.m., Saturday, March 13)
This game will be closer than the line suggests. I see Villanova squeaking out a victory in the game, but the Hall will cover. Villanova ran away from Seton Hall earlier in the year, but that was on their home floor. On this neutral court, the Wildcats won’t be as dominant. Seton Hall has made the Big East Tournament Finals for the first time in 23 years, and that means something to the players and the program. Look for the Pirates to play with an emotion that you haven’t seen out of them all year. The Wildcats are playing for a number one seed in the tournament, but they know at worst they will be a two seed with a loss. This game means more to Seton Hall than it does for Villanova and it will show. Seton Hall is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games versus teams with winning percentages over .600 and they are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between the two teams.
