NCAA Basketball Picks: Wager on Tennessee, Florida State and Iowa on March 9th 2013

NCAA Basketball Picks: March 9th 2013

Pick: Tennessee Pk
The Tennessee Volunteers love playing in the home underdog position. They are 28-7 ATS as a home dog or pick since 1997. They are playing great basketball right now having won seven of their last eight games straight up and against the spread. They are playing a Missouri team that has not played well on the road this season sitting on a 5-8 record. The Volunteers defense hat home has been great. They are holding opponents to 62.5 points per game. They also do a great job of outrebounding their opponents. This may be a slightly more difficult task than normal against Missouri, but both of these teams share large positive margins when it comes to pulling in more rebounds than their opponent. Tennessee is 5-0 ATS in their last five games against teams with a winning record and 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 home games against teams with a losing road record like Missouri. The Tigers on the other hand are 0-6 ATS in road games against teams winning 60% or more of their games at home. -Jimmy Boyd

Pick: Florida State +4
This young Florida State squad is finally coming together. The Seminoles just upset Virginia last time out to improve to 3-0 in their last three and 5-2 in their last seven at home. NC State has won three in a row and six of seven, but it has struggled on the road. The Wolfpack are just 2-5 in their last seven road games. Florida State will be lacking no motivation here because it was hammered 84-66 in the first meeting. Consider that the Noles are on a rock solid 31-16 ATS run when out for revenge for a same-season loss to an opponent. They are also on a terrific 22-10 ATS run as a home underdog or pickem. Take the points. -Dave Price

Pick: Iowa -13
Iowa blew a 16-point halftime lead in a loss at Lincoln in the first meeting so you better believe the Hawks will be out for some serious payback. It’s to Iowa’s benefit that Nebraska enters off a big upset win over Minnesota because the Huskers are 0-6 ATS off an upset win over a conference for the last 2 seasons. They have lost these contests by an average of 22.0 points. Iowa has been sensational at home where it has won 6 straight. Nebraska, meanwhile, has been awful on the road where it has dropped 4 in a row by an average of 21.5 points. Bet the Hawkeyes. -Jeff Alexander
