Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Our 500-star NCAA Basketball Tournament Point Spread Predictions are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue into the 2017 NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April.

Tip-off is 6:00 PM EST on the ESPNN Television Network. The game is on Thursday. March 9, 2017. The teams will play at the XL Center in chilly Hartford, Connecticut.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Tulane Green Wave will not have the large contingent in Hartford on Thursday.

However, the Tulane “HOOPS” program is heading in the right direction but must upgrade facilities.

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane has a long tradition of playing competitive basketball. However, the team has had their struggles down the stretch of the 2017 season.

The Opening Betting Line has the Tulane as a Four-Point, And A Half-Points Underdog Against The Point Spread on a neutral court. The Betting Odds Total is 149-Points for Thursday’s contest.

The Tulane Green Wave won just four games in Conference action this season and finished next to last in the standings.

The old South Carolina University and NBA star have eighteen years of coaching experience.

However, it’s his first at the collegiate level. The Tulane program is in good hands, and Dunleavy will turn the program around sooner than later. The Green Wave are 1-3 vs. The number of their last four contests.

Junior Guard Cameron Reynolds is the team’s leading scorer and lights up the gym against Tulsa in their final game with seven three-pointers and 31-points.

The key to a Tulane victory is to dictate the pace of the basketball game and make open shots.

Bovada.Lv, list the Tulane Green Wave at +12,500 to win the 2017 American Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament title.

 

The 2017 Tulsa Golden Hurricane seemed to be getting a bye in the AAC Tournament, but they went 2-8 straight up to end the regular season.

Tulsa will now face a confident Tulane team which beat them last Sunday. March 5th. Head Coach Frank Haith must instill some confidence in his team; they look lethargic and lazy.

The Golden Hurricane were 6-2 n Conference play about a month ago. What is going wrong?

NCAA Basketball enthusiast in the “SOONER STATE” believes Haith is over coaching the team.

The starting five are solid, but the bench players have been less than average in production.

Rutgers University transfer Junior Etou Bovada is the team’s leading scorer with just 13 points per game and is the only player averaging double figures.

The key to a Tulsa victory is to play tight defense and control the post.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Nebraska Cornhuskers like the entire Big Ten Conference is a little down the 2016-17 season.

Anything is possible, and the Cornhuskers believe they can win the Conference Tournament as a lower seed.

Besides Maryland, the Penn State Nittany Lions should have the largest contingencies in Washington.

The Opening Betting Line has the Nebraska Cornhuskers as a Two-Point Favorite Against The Point Spread on a neutral court.

The Betting Odds Total is 141 And A Half-Points for Wednesday’s contest.

Revenge is on the minds of the Penn State basketball squad.

The Freshman trio of Guard Tony Carr and Forward Lamar Stevens are the teams leading scorers.

Head Coach Pat Chambers is a native son of the “KEYSTONE STATE, ” but his job could be on the line. Chambers has been on the bench since the 2011 season with no NCAA March Madness Tournament appearances.

Everyone n the nation knows Penn State is a Football first school, but the atmosphere is ripe for championship caliber “HOOPS.”

NCAA Basketball Conference Tournament ATS Picks and, Odds: Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Our 500-star NCAA Basketball Tournament Point Spread Predictions are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue into the 2017 NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April.

The (15-16) Pitt Panthers of the Atlantic Coast Conference will make the trip to the “EMPIRE STATE” for their first round ACC Conference Tournament matchup.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST on the ESPNU Television Network. The game is on Tuesday. March 7, 2017.

Teams will play at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Pittsburgh Panthers have had a tough time in the first season of Head Coach Kevin Stallings. The Panthers are struggling in 2017 after years of winning with Jamie Dixon on the sidelines.

Georgia Tech Yellow  must advance to at least the ACC Tournament Semi-finals to get in the 2017 NCAA March Madness Tournament.

If the “RAMBLIN WRECK” advances they will face an excellent Virginia basketball team.

The Opening Betting Line has the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets as a One-Point Underdog Against The Point Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 129-Points for Tuesday’s contest.

The Pittsburgh Panthers won just four games in ACC action this season and finished next to the last place.

Pittsburgh is also on a four-game losing streak going into the ACC Tournament and are also 0-3 ATS their last three.

Senior Forwards Michael Young and Jamel Artis put up nearly forty points per contest for the Panthers on offense, which is almost fifty percent of the team’s points per game.

Stallings must hit the recruiting trail this summer. The former Vanderbilt head coach has access to some of the best talent in the nation. Stallings brought sufficient talent to Vanderbilt, and there is no way he can’t do the same thing at an ACC Institute.

The key to a Pittsburgh victory is to push the basketball at a fanatic pace and not allowing Georgia Tech to set their defense.

Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Panthers at +10,000 to win the 2017 Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Tournament Championship.

The 2017 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have dropped four of their last six basketball contests.

Georgia Tech also has watched their March Madness Tournament chances fade away. However, a win Tuesday and an upset of Virginia in the next round will turn heads.

First Year Head Coach Josh Pastner is doing an adequate job in his first season. Pastner comes over from Memphis and must tap into the talent in the “PEACH STATE” to make his program into one of the elites in the ACC.

Georgia Tech has covered the point spread the last six times the teams have met, including a 61-52 victory this season. Georgia Tech has quality wins over North Carolina, Florida State, and Notre Dame this season.

Inconsistency has been an issue on the court for the Yellow Jackets this season.

Freshman Guard Josh Okogie is the team’s leading scorer, but Junior Center Ben Lammers is their best player at both ends of the court.

The key to a Georgia Tech victory is to dominate the post and be patient on offense.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2017 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at +10,000 to win the ACC Tournament Crown.

The Opening Betting Line has the Marquette Golden Eagles as a One And A Half-Point Road Underdog Against The Point Spread.

The Betting Odds Total is 149-Points for Wednesday’s contest.

The 2017 Marquette Golden Eagles beat Xavier by double digits in February of 2017. Marquette is 5-5 their last ten both straight up and Against The Spread.

Head Coach Steve Wojciechowski is a former Duke standout known for his gritty play at both ends of the floor. “WOJO” is looking to take the program back to the success they had under Al McGuire in the 1970’s.

The Golden Eagles can score with any team in the land, but they must learn the fundamentals of defense.

Sophomore Guard Haanif Cheatham is underachieving this season after a stellar Freshman campaign.

The Fort Lauderdale, Florida native has the talent to make the Golden Eagles a Sweet Sixteen basketball squad.

The Musketeers have also been wrong to ATS bettors, 1-9 their last ten basketball contests.

Xavier now considered a strong bubble team, a win Wednesday at home could go a long way in getting back to the good graces of the NCAA Tournament committee.

Junior Guard Trevon Bluiett leads Xavier in scoring and must impose his will on the final two games as well as the Big East Tournament.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Indiana Hoosiers are on the outside looking in to get into the 2017 NCAA March Madness Tournament.

The Hoosiers must win the Big Ten Tournament to go “DANCING.” The Hoosiers are just 8-10 in Big Ten action.

Purdue, on the other hand, wins the Big Ten regular season title with a victory over their in-state rivals.

The Boilermakers are also looking for the season sweep over Indiana.

The Opening Betting Line has the Indiana Hoosiers as a Ten And A Half-Point Road Underdog Against The Point Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 150′-Points for Tuesday’s contest.

The Indiana Hoosiers have lost four of the last five to the Purdue Boilermakers, and that is unacceptable in the basketball-crazed state.

Indiana is also 0-5 to the Number in the span. Indiana broke a five-game losing streak on Saturday. February, 25th in front of the home crowd by beating Northwestern.

Hoosiers head coach Tome Crean must find a way to attract top talent to Bloomington. The day’s of Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo are gone, but they have the facilities plus a strong tradition to bring in top tier players. T

he city of Indianapolis is full of talented high schoolers, and Crean must tap into the pool.

The Butler Bulldogs have taken over as the top College Basketball program in the Central part of the state, and it is not sitting well with Hoosier fans.

The key to an Indiana victory is for Guard James Blackmon to shoot the light’s out of the basketball.

Bovada.Lv, list the Indiana Hoosiers at +25,000 to win the 2017 NCAA Basketball March Madness Tournament. (They must get in the Tournament first).

Head Coach Matt Painter is in his twelfth season on the bench in West Lafayette and has one of his finest teams.

Senior Caleb Swanigan leads the team in scoring and rebounds and is a front-runner for the Big Ten player of the year. T

he Fort Wayne, Indiana native will have family in the stands but understands the team has the talent to make a run in the NCAA Tournament.

The key to a Purdue victory is to take advantage of the home crowd and play solid at both ends of the court.

Basketball Predictions and, Odds: Los Angeles Lakers at Oklahoma City Thunder.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Our 500-star NBA Point Spread Predictions are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue into the 2017 NBA Finals in June.

The (19-39) Los Angeles Lakers of the Western Conference Pacific Division will be in “TORNADO ALLEY” for a Conference matchup. The Lakers play the (32-25) Oklahoma City Thunder of the Western Conference Northwest in 2017 NBA action.

Tip-off is 8:00 PM EST. The game is on Friday. February 24, 2017. The teams will play at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The best Sports Handicapper believes Los Angeles Lakers are on the way up after cleaning house in the front office. Can Earvin “Magic” Johnson bring the franchise back to prominence?

The Oklahoma City Thunder need a few more parts to become competitive in the Western Conference. General Manager Sam Presti lost James Harden and Kevin Durant in the past four years.

The Opening Betting Line has the Los Angeles Lakers as a Ten Point Road Underdog Against The Point Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 221-Points for Friday’s contest.

The 2017 Los Angeles Lakers will miss the postseason again in 2017. Managing partner Jeanie Buss fired Mitch Kupchak and her brother recently, making room for Johnson.

Head Coach Luke Walton is an up and coming leader in the ranks. Johnson and Walton are both former players who understand players.

The two also understands what it takes to win at the professional level. The Lakers are twenty-three games out of first place and will not catch Golden State.

Los Angeles is 9-25 vs. Western Conference opposition and just 7-25 on the road this season. Los Angeles broke a nine-game losing streak vs. The Thunder in November of 2016.

The Lakers are just 1-3 their last for both straight up and to the point spread. Los Angeles ranks in the bottom of the NBA in scoring offense and points allowed by opponents.

Johnson recently traded away the teams leading scorer, Lou Williams in now a member of the Houston Rockets. The key to a Laker’s victory os to play aggressively at both ends of the court.

Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Lakers at +20,000 to win the 2017 NBA Western Conference Pacific Division Title.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been the class of the Northwest Division over the past six years.

However, the loss of Kevin Durant to Golden State is showing, and fans want a quick fix.

Oklahoma City is now behind the Utah Jazz in the division and Portland is also looming.

Oklahoma City is 4-6 their last ten overall, they have also been a disappointment to point spread bettors over the span.

All Star Point Guard Russell Westbrook is still one of the premier players in the league, but he needs help.

The inside combination of Steven Adams and Enes Kanter is one of the strongest in the west, but something is missing.

Second-Year Head Coach Billy Donovan will figure out how the Thunder can make a run in the postseason.

The front office must help, and Presti should pull the string on a few trades before the deadline.

The key to a Thunder victory is to play their style of basketball. Bovada.Lv, list the 2017 Oklahoma City Thunder at +250 to win the Northwest Division Crown.
