Sharing some work, and we do have a 3* going today and will include as much as we can. Got the break in the G-Tech game we needed that could be the start of another run - we'll see, but that's how "March" is. Head scratching night after night. Tonight, we had hair left, fortunately.

Wake/V-Tech: From a "need" standpoint both teams have to win. Wake is slated in the ESPN Bracket as a last-four-in hence a Dayton play-in team. The Hokies are an #8 seed, but I have to believe that's tenuous at best. These two just played Saturday, with Wake winning at V-Tech. Wake clearly had to play the extra game Tuesday against BC, but probably didn't expend a whole lot of energy. It's hard to bet against a team (Wake) that shoots so well from the FT line and gets there a lot - both teams protect the ball well, and neither team plays a ton of defense, so I like Wake and over. I cannot see Tech winning a lower scoring game. I suspect the total gets bet up from it's opener, so either very early, or very late - will probably be the best number.

Oklahoma/TCU:  Another rematch of a game played just last Saturday, at Oklahoma, won by the Sooners. They played earlier in the season, the home team (TCU) winning by a few, so two close games. TCU seemed to fare better earlier in Conference play before teams knew what Jamie Dixon's team was going to do - they (TCU) lost the last seven games of the season, but aside from Baylor, most of them were fairly close. The Sooners held their own down the stretch, and aside from being ragged on offense, they're quite young. Their advantage is that they get to the line a fair bit and have a better defense, TCU's upside is that they're bigger. The Sooners will try to play more up tempo and do have a much deeper bench, so that's something that might lend itself to a 2H bet, especially if TCU is up a bit at the half.
