Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Clemson Tigers, 7 pm Eastern
The Pick: Georgia Tech +8.5 (-118), bet $17.70 to win $15; Georgia Tech +300, bet $2.50 to win $7.50
This spread reflects some recency bias, factoring in that Georgia Tech got absolutely hammered by Notre Dame on Saturday, 90-56. In no way am I arguing that Georgia Tech is good, just that they’ve played hard all year despite being bad. The Yellow Jackets are a respectable 5-5 against the spread on the road. They’re not going to lay down after getting beaten down in their last game. In fact, they beat this Clemson team on Feb. 5, 69-64. In fact, they’ve beaten the spread in their last five games against Clemson. Obviously, the Tigers will remember that (at least the February 5th part) and will be amped to avenge it tonight. I expect a tough battle between two squads who have nothing to play for but pride. I’ll put a little taste on the upset.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Florida State, 7 pm Eastern
The Pick: Notre Dame -132, bet $26.40 to win $20; Notre Dame -2 (-110), bet $16.50 to win $15
Right now, Joe Lunardi of ESPN’s “Bracketology” has Notre Dame as an #8-seed in the NCAA Tournament…which means they’d be playing a #1 seed in their second game. The Fighting Irish don’t want that. Even though Duke clinched the ACC regular-season title last night, Notre Dame needs every single game from now on to bolster their resumé for the postseason. Florida State, despite being injury-depleted and having dropped off from their promising start, are going to put up a fight. They just beat a Virginia team who is trying to make the tournament and beat them on the road. But I think there will be a letdown tonight, and Notre Dame’s offense has been high-caliber all season. They need tonight, and they win the games they’re supposed to win.
North Carolina State Wolfpack at Wake Forest Demon Deacons, 9 pm Eastern
The Pick: Wake Forest -10 (-110), bet $11 to win $10
Here’s another team who needs a win tonight to bolster that resumé for March Madness. Wake Forest is currently projected by Lunardi to be one of the last teams to get a “bye” out of the play-in games on the first Tuesday, an #11 seed. Tonight’s game against an underperforming N.C. State team is a good chance for the Demon Deacons to tick up a level or two. Wake Forest still needs to get the taste of that loss to Clemson on Feb. 23 out of the tournament committee’s mouth. They’re 15-2 at home, 19-2 as a favorite, and 17-12-1 against the spread. They let it all out tonight. N.C. State is 2-8 in their last ten games; they’re playing things out. Wake cruises.
Miami Hurricanes at Boston College Golden Eagles, 9 pm Eastern
The Pick: Teaser Wake Forest -6.5 w/Miami -0.5 +137, bet $15 to win $20.63
I’m gonna tease Wake Forest under double-digits with Miami just to win because if there’s any team that needs to bolster their resumé, it’s the Hurricanes. Miami is dropping, projected to be a #10 seed right now. That’s what happens when you lose a must-win game to a team not going to the tournament at home. Miami has to have this game. I’ve been touting them all year, and their performance against Virginia Tech made me a subject of humiliation at all the cocktail parties I go to on the social circuit, so they owe me. You owe me, Miami. You’ve won twenty games and are playing a Boston College team that’s lost six of their last eight. I’ve got a big party to attend on Saturday; don’t make it awkward.
The Pick: Parlay Notre Dame (-132) w/Wake Forest (-530) w/Miami (-132), true price +227, bet $7.50 to win $17.07
I like these three tournament candidates to shine up their curriculum vitae.
