Picks for Best Games on Sunday, March 24th

Yesterday’s Round of 32 games weren’t exactly great, so for today let’s hope for some much better games today. The early games will feature top seeds on upset watch but the late games will be fun as there are going to be some fun games. Here are my against the spread picks for all of today’s NCAA Tournament action and don’t forget to catch up on the MakingtheMadness.com live blog for the day’s best highlights. 

Iowa vs. Tennessee

12:10 PM ET on CBS

Line: Tennessee -8

Pick: Tennessee

Against the Spread: Tennessee

Final Score Prediction: Tennessee 78 Iowa 67

Why this pick? The Volunteers will be motivated to beat Iowa handily after letting Colgate hang around in their first round game. 

Washington vs. North Carolina

2:40 PM ET on CBS

Line: North Carolina -11.5

Pick: North Carolina

Against the Spread: North Carolina 

Final Score Prediction: North Carolina 85 Washington 67

Why this pick? The Tar Heels are too quick for this Washington zone, I’ll take them in this game. 

UCF vs. Duke

5:15 PM ET on CBS

Line: Duke -13

Pick: Duke

Against the Spread: UCF

Final Score Prediction: Duke 73 UCF 65

Why this pick? UCF will hang around against Duke, although in the end Duke will be too much. 

Buffalo vs. Texas Tech

6:10 PM ET on TNT

Line: Texas Tech -3.5

Pick: Buffalo

Against the Spread: Buffalo

Final Score Prediction: Buffalo 70 Texas Tech 65

Why this pick? This should be one of the games of the tournament as I think both are capable of a Final Four run, I like the Bulls but it could go either way. 

Liberty vs. Virginia Tech

7:10 PM ET on TBS

Line: Virginia Tech -8.5

Pick: Virginia Tech

Against the Spread: Virginia Tech

Final Score Prediction: Virginia Tech 76 Liberty 61

Pick: Virginia

Against the Spread: Virginia 

Final Score Prediction: Virginia 76 Oklahoma 60
