Game: Northwestern at Washington Mar 16 2012 10:00PM
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: For a number of different reasons I believe the value in this contest is on the "under": Northwestern beat Akron 76-74 in the 1st round of the NIT. Drew Crawford had 27-points; John Shurna added 23-points and 11-rebounds: “We’re happy to get a win and continue to play basketball,” Shurna said. Note that Northwestern has seen the total go "under" the number in eight of its last 12 as an underdog. On the other bench: The Huskies are coming off an 82-72 win over Texas Arlington in the first round. Terrence Ross had 23-points; CJ Wilcox had 14-points; Darnell Gant added 13. Note that Washington has seen the total go "under" the number in 12 of its last 23 as a favorite. Bottom line: With each team coming off high-scoring victories, the oddsmakers are anticipating another shootout; however, I expect each to come out and play with a concerted effort on the defensive end, and for this total to sneak below the posted number. In my humble opinion, this is the very definition of "great line value"; *10* "SECOND ROUND NIT TOP TOTAL" on the UNDER!
