Picks for Best Games on Friday, March 15th

For all conferences playing today there will be Semifinals or Quarterfinals games taking place, this should be a great day of games to watch. Here are my against the spread picks for all of the days best games. 

Uconn vs. Houston

Noon ET on ESPN2

Line: Houston -10

Pick: Houston

Against the Spread: Houston

Final Score Prediction: Houston 76 Uconn 60

Why this pick? The Cougars probably kept it a little too close when the two teams met up in February, I think they win this game a little more comfortably.

12:30 PM ET on the Big Ten Network 

Line: Michigan State -11.5

Pick: Michigan State

Against the Spread: Ohio State

Final Score Prediction: Michigan State 74 Ohio State 67

Why this pick? The Spartans will probably have a slow start to this game, as a lot of teams tend to have at the start of conference tournaments, the Spartans will probably win but not by 12.

Florida vs. LSU


Line: LSU -2.5

Pick: Florida

Against the Spread: Florida

Final Score Prediction: Florida 67 LSU 62

Why this pick? The Tigers will be playing without one of their best players and their head coach, meanwhile Florida matches up well with them, I’ll pick the Gators to win this one.

2 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: UCF -2.5

Pick: Memphis

Line: Wisconsin -7.5

Pick: Wisconsin

Against the Spread: Wisconsin

Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin 79 Nebraska 63

Line: Villanova -6.5

Pick: Villanova
