Nailed another 3* last night with an easy G-Dub win over Dayton (8-2 3* run) and have one today. Our CBB March Madness package is available as well. Get every CBB bet through the Final Four - plus, get credit for 1 EXTRA Game of the Year from ANY other Pro. 

Purdue/N-Western: Win, lose, or draw, Purdue is the #1 seed in the Big Ten Tournament - and I don't think N'western can catch Minnesota for the 4th seed (and a bye) due to a head-to-head loss to the Gophers. So, Purdue is playing for basically nothing except a higher seed (which could change with their performance in the Conference Tournament) and N'western is all of a sudden playing just to get IN. They're probably an 8/9 seed, but a loss here and an early exit in the B10 Championship, and maybe not so much. So, that motivation alone and the earlier drubbing they took at Purdue would preclude me from taking the Boilermakers. N'western is undersized here, so they simply cannot afford to let Purdue dictate the pace and will do everything to slow it down, so barring late FT's - under, although to take that out possibility out of the equation, 1H under.

Minnesota/Wisconsin: These two are tied in the Conference, so this is for the #3/4 seed - possibly the loser could drop to 5ht if Northwestern wins - I haven't looked at that tiebreaker. The Badgers have all of a sudden lost five of six, and two of those at home. Minnesota has been heading in the other direction, winners of eight straight and seeking to avenge an overtime loss to the Badgers earlier in the season. Those two things are probably enough to keep me off of Wisconsin - perhaps the "no Bo Ryan" thing is finally catching up. Minnesota defends the perimeter, the Badgers don't shoot well from the FT line -  they've got experience, but I still expect this to be a very close game, so gimme the points.
