Brian’s picks went 1-2 on Saturday. The following are Brian’s picks for Sunday.
1. Syracuse -1.5 vs Arizona State. I show this game as essentially a pick ‘em with a very slight edge to Arizona State. The computer models continue to be unimpressed with Syracuse despite their easy first round win. Arizona State showed nicely in the first round for what may have been an underrated Pac-10 conference. The bettors seem to be with me here as this one opened as Syracuse -2.5.
2. Xavier -4 vs Wisconsin. I really like Wisconsin in this one. I think Xavier wins…but this could another one of those overtime classics. The Badger nation will fill up the auditorium in Boise and they may even sneak this one out.
