I feel the need to tighten up a bit with my picks and go back to the less is more philosophy. I want to finish the year strong and that starts with tonight's three picks. So let's get a sweep!
|Last 90 Days||311||254||8||55.0%|
UCLA @ Duke (-215): We all know how hard it is going into Duke and winning. I don't think UCLA has the chops to do it tonight. Duke is the first ranked opponent they will face and I get the feeling they will be a bit overwhelmed. Look for Duke and Jabari Parker to win a close one.
Clemson (-4.5) @ Auburn: Auburn is pretty bad team ranked 119 in PPG and 236 in field goal percentage Denson (19.9) and Harrell (18.4) combine to average more than 38 points per game but after that the productions drops off significantly. Clemson on the other hand has 11 players averaging at least 11 minutes per game and nobody averaging 30 minutes. This tells me Clemson is deep and experienced and will cover the 4.5.
Spurs @ Warriors (-267): I didn't get on this until after I heard that Duncan, Ginobli, as well as Parker are out for the Spurs. The spread doubled in a matter of seconds so I took the ML.
Good Luck All!
