Valparaiso -3.5 over St. Mary’s
Valparaiso has been dominant at home this year as they are 16-1 on the year. This is a team that has played high scoring teams in the Horizon Conference and have held them in check. St. Mary’s just missed the tournament and who knows how excited they are to be playing on the road with an early start time for them in front of only 2000 people? Valpo doesn’t get the credit they deserve because they play in a conference that doesn’t get on national TV too often. This team is really good and should take care of business at home tonight. Take Valparaiso.March 22, 2016 at 5:47 pm #37083
(3% play) VALPARAISO -3/-3.5 (vs. St. Mary’s CA) – 7:00 pm ET (ESPN) #660
St. Mary’s of California had a fantastic season, and there was disbelief by many that the Gaels did not receive an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament. St. Mary’s comes into tonight’s game at Valparaiso with an impressive 29-5 SU record, but they’ve certainly had some favorable things in their corner to reach that record. Twenty of St. Mary’s twenty-nine wins have come on their home court. St. Mary’s has yet to cross the Rocky Mountains this season, so they’ve had little travel involved as well. The Gaels have played absolutely nothing in terms of competition; they have the 156th rated schedule this season. St. Mary’s best wins came over Gonzaga twice, and while those wins look good now with the Zags in the Sweet 16, keep in mind Gonzaga was given an #11 seed in the tournament despite beating St. Mary’s in the conference championship game. St. Mary’s has excellent numbers on both ends of the court, but they should considering the level of competition they’ve faced.
Valparaiso also played terrific basketball this season, and the Crusaders were also on the bubble of an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament. Valparaiso has the benefit of playing this game on their home court where they are 16-1 SU this season. The Crusaders own an impressive +15.5 point differential at home, and they’ve won both NIT home games by double digits. Valparaiso’s defense is holding their opponents to just 62 points per game on 39.5% shooting from the field and 33% shooting from three-point land on their home court. St. Mary’s offense is only averaging 68.5 points per game on the road this season. “Only by winning this whole thing we can erase the sting we have of not making the tournament,” senior Keith Carter said. “We’re a close knit group and we’re hungry to keep winning games.” We’ll lay the points with the Crusaders in this game on Tuesday night.

Play on: BYU -4 -110
4* Creighton/BYU NIT ATS No Brainer on BYU –
I believe we are getting some great value here with BYU due to the fact that Kyle Collinsworth is listed on the injury report as questionable with the flu. Collinsworth has had a couple days to recover and his teammates are confident that he will be out there for this game. I expect the same from the senior standout.
While there’s a good chance Collinsworth plays, we know for sure that Creighton will be without guard Isaiah Zierden. That’s a big loss. Zierden averages 10.2 ppg and is the Bluejays top 3-point threat.
The other big key here is the game being played at BYU, where the Cougars are 15-2 on the season. Creighton on the other hand is just 6-9 on the road and have dropped 4 straight away from home. Both teams average right around 80.0 ppg offensively, but BYU allowed just 69.5 ppg at home and Creighton gives up 77.7 ppg on the road.
BYU failed to cover the spread in their last game against Virginia Tech, but are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 following a game where they failed to beat the number. The Cougars are also 25-9 ATS in their last 34 home games off a win by 6 points or less. Lay the points!March 22, 2016 at 6:41 pm #37095
