Free March Madness Picks – Sweet Sixteen

Posted March 28, 2019

By Daryl @ Betting Gods

The last four games of the Sweet 16 tips off on March 29 and it promises to be a great day of college basketball March Madness action.

LSU Tigers vs. Michigan State Spartans @ Capital One Arena

Past Meetings And Form

This will be the first meeting between LSU and Michigan State and it should be a great contest.
Both teams have looked good and bad at times this season, but it has been the Spartans that have looked better during March Madness to date.

With wins over Bradley and Minnesota, with the latter coming by 20 points, Michigan State are in good order coming into the Sweet 16.

LSU lost their coach towards the end of the season but they’re fighting strong with tournament wins over Yale and Maryland. Both were narrow wins (5 and 2 points) but they were tough affairs.

Verdict

Bookmakers aren’t giving LSU much respect in the spread, which is currently set at 6. This game should be closer than they’re predicting and LSU could test Michigan State.

We expect a tight game and although the Spartans should win, we like LSU to keep it close.

Auburn Tigers vs. North Carolina Tar Heels @ Sprint Center

Two quality teams meet in this Sweet 16 clash, with the winner likely to be the favourite in the Elite 8 match up.

Past Meetings And Form

Auburn has yet to face North Carolina in the history of these two programs, which is surprising given their talents.

North Carolina has played like a #1 seed throughout the season, notching a famous win over Duke along the way. With a player like Cam Johnston leading the way, the Tar Heels could be good enough to progress through to the National Championship.

They took care of Iona and Washington in the tournament so far, despite being down at the half against Iona in Round 2.

Auburn, on the other hand, have scrapped their way to victory. They defeated New Mexico State by one point in the opening round before winning more comfortably last time on court.

Bookmakers are treading carefully with this game.

Verdict

We respect the ability of Auburn but there’s a sense of pride with this North Carolina team and we think they could go all the way this season.

Bookmakers have the line currently set at 5 and that should play into the hands of Tar Heels’ bettors here.

Virginia Tech vs. Duke Blue Devils @ Capital One Arena

This game will attract a big audience, as any game involved Zion Williamson and the Duke Blue Devils will.

Past Meetings And Form

Virginia Tech and Duke have a long history and it has been Tech which has had the upper hand in recent games. They have won the last two meetings against Duke, including a 77-72 win in February.

That will play on the mind of the Duke players, considering they only narrowly defeated UCF by a point in Round 2. Some would say they were lucky to get away with the win and it certainly would have been the upset of the tournament.

It was an easier road to the Sweet 16 for Virginia Tech, which comfortable defeated St. Louis and Liberty. They’re now facing the acid test of Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and a host of other future NBA players.

Verdict

Virginia Tech’s win earlier this season is going to get them plenty of confidence in this game. It’s tough to bet against Duke, considering the talent they have on the court but Tech is a team not to be taken lightly.

We think Duke will come out on top, but it won’t be a blowout.

Houston Cougars vs. Kentucky Wildcats @ Sprint Center

A tight battle is expected in the final Sweet 16 game of the year as the Cougars face the Wildcats.

Past Meetings And Form

This is the first meeting between Houston and Kentucky.

The Wildcats had some nervous moments last week when beating Wofford by only six points and being behind for a majority of the game.

Houston didn’t have any troubles in putting away Ohio State, scoring by 74-59, and they’re a confident side that has the ability to take down this slightly undersized Kentucky team.

Kentucky isn’t as strong as it used to be and one-year players going to the NBA has hurt their team this season. That could be Houston’s gain and we’re smelling a minor upset.

Verdict

Houston is a –3 underdog in this game but based on form, they could well have been the favorite.
They have been playing better basketball than Kentucky and we’re confident they’ll at least keep it close.

Houston Cougars +3 @ 1.93 Pinnacle, Unibet, 188Bet
