Finally, following a few days off after the Round of 32, the 2019 NCAA Tournament resumes with the Sweet 16 starting up Thursday. Jonny OddsShark and Andrew Avery are back to break down their favorite picks, and also unveil the #ShowUsYoureSharp contest entry.
First, though, it’s the picks and Jonny gets things started as he breaks down Purdue vs Tennessee in a game that should be close, as indicated by the tight spread, but one that Jonny firmly believes will be a Sportsbook.
Next up, Ninja talks about Florida State-Gonzaga and a game that raised many eyebrows when the lines hit the board. Florida State is dealing with a tragedy within the team, but can this be a rallying point for the Noles and will they repeat what they did to Gonzaga one season ago?
Jonny’s second and final pick comes from the Oregon-Virginia game. The No. 1 Cavaliers survived another scare against a 16 seed in the Round of 64 before winning – and covering – in the Round of 32. Can they keep that momentum going against a game Ducks team?
Lastly, Ninja takes a took at Texas Tech-Michigan in what should be a slow-paced, tight affair and while he’s paying close attention to totals for this one, he’s looking at that number for the first half and building his pick around that.
We haven’t had a Sportsbook in the #ShowUsYoureSharp contest since Day 1 so Thursday’s submission could stand to win a cool $2,000! Tune in to find out what today’s pick is and remember, if it doesn’t hit, then Friday’s stands to be in store for $2,500!
