Money likes the favorites today

Typically you will find Money taking a lot of home underdogs, but there are a lot of top 25 favorites that Money can keep his eyes off of. Enjoy the day, and keep your eyes on the championship games this weekend in preparation for the tournament.

Check back tomorrow for Sunday games too!

Saturday games:

Kansas -8.5 vs. Texas
Texas laid an egg after their triple OT winner over Oklahoma state earlier this year, and Money thinks the same thing will occur here. This game should be close for a bit, but the depth of KU will be too tough for the longhorns.

Wisconsin -8 vs. MSU
Michigan state is 1-7 on the road. Last game for Tucker. Revenge for Wisconsin. Money likes this game.

Uconn +12.5 @ Georgetown
While this game means a lot for the Hoyas, as they can get a piece of the Big East crown with a win, they have had a tough time with the Huskies in the past. This game will be played at the Verizon center eliminating a “true” home crowd for the Hoyas. The Huskies excel at defense, eliminating the blowout here.

VANDERBILT -4.5 vs. Arkansas
I think Vanderbilt has a good chance to do some damage in the tournament. They may catch some teams by surprise. They play outstanding at home and I am a bit surprised at how low this line is. The razorbacks are 1-8 on the road.

TEXAS A&M -13.5 vs. Missouri
The Aggies may be in a position to win a share of the league title, but that would mean that Texas beats Kansas, which I don’t believe will happen. Nevertheless, this team is so tough and plays with so much pride; they will still cover this game. I have a major man-crush on Acie Law. He is so clutch and will carry this team to the final four, at least.

Championship games: One of these teams will be dancing

DAVIDSON -4 vs. College of Charleston
I am going with the better defensive team here and sticking with the league champ. No upset here

nice picks today money. I thought I would check in since it was championship week to see if you were up to your old tricks, like making out with kansas every chance you get. and of course you didnt let me down going with them in a big game again. and taking ohio state and giving that many points to a solid msu team? cumon money, they barely score 8 points in a half..but the funniest and worst of all is you have a guy making picks on your site with a chicks name..nice work..

You will be happy to know that my love-fest for Kansas goes farther than just one game. They are my pick to win it all
