NCAA-B | Davidson vs Rhode Island
Play on: Davidson -1½ -110 at YouWager
Game Analysis

This is a Free NCAAB play on Davidson.

The Davidson Wildcats come into Rhode Island as winners of eight of their last 10 overall, and during that span they won three of five road games. They are sitting in second place in the Atlantic 10 with a 10-3 record within the conference. Rhode Island has lost four straight, and has scored an average of just 54.2 points on 33.8 percent shooting over their last five games. During that span they have hit just 15 percent of their three point shot attempts. Fatts Russell scored one point on 0-of-7 shooting in the loss to VCU Tuesday, and he scored just six points on 3-of-13 shooting in a loss to Davidson earlier this season. The Rams scoring leader Jeff Dowtin was 1-of-9 from the field in his last home game.

Take DAV.

NCAA-B | Indiana vs Iowa
Play on: Indiana +7 -104 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

My 1* Free Play is on Indiana (9:00 EST).

Indiana comes in desperate for a victory. The Hoosiers are in the 12th spot in the 14-team Big Ten conference right now. Indiana though looked competitive in its 48-46 home loss to No. 15 Purdue last time out. Romeo Langford was a bright spot in a losing cause with 14 points and nine boards. 

Note though that while the Hoosiers are only 2-5 vs. ranked opponents this year, their last such victory was a 79-75 OT upset victory at No. 9 MSU back on February 2nd. 

I think it’s also relevant to point out that Indiana has won eight of the last ten in this series and three of its last four at Iowa City.

Iowa is three games back of Michigan and Purdue, so a first round bye in the conference tournament is essentially out of the question now anyways for the home side. 

The Hawkeyes won two games in a row with last second shots, but the tables were turned in last Tuesday’s 66-65 setback to No. 24 Maryland. Jordan Bohannon had 14 points in a losing cause.

I’ll point out that Indiana is 2-0 ATS in its last two after scoring 65 points or less in three straight games, while Iowa is a poor 6-10 ATS at home this season and just 3-8 ATS in its last 11 off a home loss vs. a conference rival (including 0-2 ATS this year.)

While I wouldn’t be completely shocked by an outright upset, I will in the end recommend grabbing the points in a contest which I envision being decided by whichever of these two hungry teams has its hands on the ball last.

Good luck…Larry

NCAA-B | St. Peter's vs Marist
Play on: Marist -5½ -113 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

1* Free Sharp Play on Marist -5½ -113

My money is on the Red Foxes to cash in an easy win and cover here as a 5.5-point home favorite against the Peacocks. Marist has been a money-making machine of late, as the Red Foxes have covered 4 straight and 6 of their last 7 overall. On the flip side of this, St. Peter's enters having lost 8 straight and are on a poor 1-5 ATS run. Peacocks have lost 5 straight on the road and all 5 have come by 8 or more points. Expect more of the same tonight. Bet Marist -5.5!
