Game: Minnesota at Miami (FL) Mar 19 2012 9:00PM
Prediction: Miami (FL)
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: 20* Play on Miami FL. Great matchup spot for the Hurricanes here tonight, and we'll back them on their home court to win comfortably against Minnesota here. Miami is a dominant 14-3 here at home, but more importantly they take on a Minnesota team that has lost momentum towards the end of the season, dropping six of their last seven regular season games and the Gophers have really been struggling on the offensive end of the court during that run. And that sets up perfectly for this matchup against Miami, as the Hurricanes have not only done well offensively with 74 ppg scored here at home, but they have also been playing very good on the defensive end of the floor as well and we look for the Gophers' offensive woes to continue here in a double-digit loss.
The Gophers were held to 61 points or less five times in that 1-6 skid (three games scoring 53 points or less), and now they face a Miami defense that has held three of their last four opponents to final scores of 56 points or fewer. That includes holding Valparaiso to just 50 points scored on 36% shooting in the first game of this NIT Tournament. Hurricanes are a perfect 6-0 ATS at home in the month of March, and are very good in postseason play with a 13-4 ATS mark in tournament games. Minnesota comes in not only with a lack of momentum, but also a lack of confidence as they own a losing record away from home, and Miami's defense shuts them down here in a big win! 20* Play on Miami FL.
