Ball St +4.5 - Don't let the last time these two teams scare you, Ball State is the better team and is getting points. This formula produces more winners than losers and shouldn't be different this time. I actually think Ball St wins straight up.
Toledo -2.5 - There are bad teams and then there are really bad teams and Miami fits into the latter category. Give the bucket and a half and feel good knowing they haven't even reached the double digit mark in victories.
Northern Illinois +8.5 - Even though they are a horrific team they always play it close to E Michigan. Less than 2 weeks ago on E Mich's home court they only lost by 3, so take your points and your money to the bank after the game.
Gonzaga +2.5 - This should be a good game with the Zags pulling it out in the end. St. Mary's beat them the first time, but so did BYU and then they went on to beat them twice. I think the same scenario unfolds here as Gonzaga has a head coach that knows how to get ready for the big dance.
Fire it up on them fellows and I think you can get out the broom on these picks as I'm smelling a sweep.
