#5 Houston vs #4 Illinois – 12:10pm ET

Houston knocked out UAB in the first round of the tournament in a particularly easy fashion. While Illinois only led their game for less than half a minute and picked the victory over an upset-minded Chattanooga team. Now, these two teams will meet in the second round to try and book a trip to the Sweet Sixteen with a victory. Both of these teams are good enough to win this one and it should end up being one of the best games of the weekend. 

My first pick in this game is Kofi Cockburn, as I think the Illinois Fighting Illini star will have a bounce back game in this one. While Cockburn had a decent game against the Chattanooga Mocs on Friday evening, it was still slightly underwhelming. I think he bounces back in this huge second round game against the Houston Cougars. I wouldn’t be shocked if Cockburn put up a double-double in this one as he tries to lead the Fighting Illini to a victory and a trip back to the Sweet Sixteen. 

My second pick for this game is an Illinois Fighting Illini victory over the Houston Cougars. I personally have Illinois making a run to the sweet sixteen before falling to Arizona in the next round. I think this is going to be one of the best games of the second round and they would both be in my sweet sixteen if their paths didn’t collide in this game. I think Kofi Cockburn will be instrumental in getting the Fighting Illini through to the next round as well.

#7 Ohio State @ #2 Villanova – 2:40pm ET

The Ohio State Buckeyes ended Loyola Chicago’s Cinderella story before it even got started this year. As they knocked the Ramblers of the tournament in the first round on Friday. Now they will face another Catholic school when they meet Villanova for a trip to the sweet sixteen. The Villanova Wildcats will be looking to win their third national championship in the last seven years in this year’s NCAA tournament. It starts with this game against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

My first pick for this game is the Buckeyes superstar EJ Liddell to go over his total points prop as he tries to get an Ohio State team that looked dead in the water two weeks ago, to the sweet sixteen. Liddell is the key for the Buckeyes this season as he is the man who makes this team what it is. A healthy Ohio State is a I would not want to play, and that has been shown a few times this season, like in their win against then number one Duke. 

My second pick for this one however, is a Villanova Wildcats victory. I think the Wildcats are still the better team in this game and that they also have the better coach in Jay Wright. Villanova is coming off of a Big East conference tournament championship and looks primed and ready to play deep into the month of March. Villanova and Ohio State are going to have one of the best games of the weekend in my opinion, but I’m giving the slight edge to Nova in this one

#7 Michigan State @ #2 Duke – 5:15pm ET

Both the Michigan State Spartans and Duke Blue Devils are two of the most legendary programs in the history of the sport of college basketball. They both also have some legendary head coaches and for the last time ever were going to see Tom Izzo’s Michigan State Spartans face off with Coach K’s Duke Blue Devils. Every game from here on out could be the last game he ever coaches so Duke will be looking to send him out on top with a national championship

My first pick for this game is the likely Atlantic Coast Conference freshman of the year award winner Palao Banchero. I look for Banchero to put up some big time numbers in this game as he looks to get his Blue Devils into the sweet sixteen. Banchero has been pretty much unstoppable this season and I look for that to continue in this game against Michigan State. I think he will be a key factor if Duke wants to get the win in this game. 

My second pick for this game is a Duke Blue Devils victory over the Michigan State Spartans. I think Duke is just too talented to lose this early on in the NCAA tournament. I think Duke will win this tight highly competitive matchup against Michigan State. Duke is an elite eight team to me as I have them getting knocked out by Gonzaga during that round. I think is a game that will go down to the very end and may end in overtime.

NBA Parlay Pick: Banchero Over Points & Duke Moneyline

#6 Texas @ #3 Purdue – 8:40pm ET

The Texas Longhorns and Purdue Boilermakers meet in this Big Ten vs Big 12 matchup for a spot in the sweet sixteen on Sunday evening. Texas knocked off a red hot Virginia Tech team in the first round, while Purdue took out the Ivy League champions, Yale in the first round. Purdue is one of the dark horse picks by many people to win the national championship this season. While a lot of people have debated Texas and their inclusion in the tournament in the first place.

My first pick for this game is the total over points to hit. As both of these teams can light up the scoreboard when they come in on their A games. This will likely be one of the higher scoring NCAA tournament games of the second round weekend. Texas finished the season and came into this one with a record of 22-11. Mena while the Purdue Boilermakers are 26-7 on the season. The winner of this one will certainly have to find a way to cross the 70 point threshold. 

My second pick for this game is a Purdue Boilermakers victory over the Texas Longhorns. I originally had the Boilermakers losing this round against the Virginia Tech Hokies but now that they play the Texas Longhorns it gives Purdue a much greater chance in my opinion. I think this is a game that will go down to the final buzzer but in the end, I have the Boilermakers coming out on top.

March Madness Parlay Pick: Total over points & Purdue Moneyline

#9 TCU @ #1 Arizona – 9:40pm ET

The TCU Horned Frogs caught fire late and played their way into the NCAA tournament with a great performance in the second half of the season. Meanwhile Arizona has been one of the most consistent teams season long which is why they are the only number one seed who hasn’t been tested at some point during this tournament yet. I think this is the game when Arizona gets pushed to the brink and they have to find a way to survive

My first pick for this game is for the total points in this one to go over the line. Both of these teams can score the basketball and it will show in this one in my opinion. I look for the score of this game to end up in the low seventies or high eighties. This one may be determined knowing they are  coming so close to making the playoffs this season. 

My second pick for this game is the Wildcats  to hit the Moneyline and get the victory. While this will be a crazy game it will almost certainly be an interesting one as Arizona will look to just keep making a run towards the finals in search of an NCAA championship. Now they will age their toughest test against TCU in this one. Arizona will definitely have to bring their A game to get the victory in this one.
