And Then They Were Four

Now that was an amazing weekend of basketball. Every single game on Saturday and Sunday was a barn burner. We had two games go to overtime and we also saw three number one seeds eliminated, only Virginia of all the number one seeds made it to the final four. If anyone had that in their bracket i applaud you, my bracket is DEAD and my soul was taking with Purdue somehow not covering the spread. Literally everything that could of went wrong did for them to somehow lose that game by 5.

In what was probably the game of the weekend, at least for me anyways because Duke lost. This game felt like the last two Duke played, they trailed a bit but seemed like they would pull out another one at the death. Fortunately for most us Duke haters that didn’t happen. Tom Izzo out coached Coach K in this one and the give the ball to Zion and hope for the best plan finally didn’t work out. Now we can all get off the Tom Izzo is too hard on his players theory RIGHT!!

The lines are out for both games with Michigan State at -2.5 over Texas Tech and Virginia at -5.5 against number five seed Auburn. Im still torn on these games but if i had to give a humble opinion right now i would take Texas Tech and Auburn to cover the points. Im honestly considering taking both teams moneyline for some good value. Texas Tech’s suffocating defence is something i haven’t seen in years in this tournament and it feels like it just keeps getting better the deeper into the madness we get. I also like Auburn, they just have something about them that feels like a team of destiny vibe. Im also not completely sold on Virginia and feel like they were very fortunate to get by Purdue and Carsen Edwards.

Lets take some time and gather our thoughts this week before the final four begins this weekend. I will be stuck working 12 hour shifts on a cruise ship but all y’all make sure to enjoy the last few days of what has been an amazing March Madness. Lets grind out this Monday and have a week y’all.
