Basketball March Madness

Big 12 Tournament: Semifinal Spread

Welcome to conference tournament season. It’s March, which means two things: basketball and gambling. Here’s your guide for today’s Big 12 action, starting at 11:30 AM on ESPN 2.

Record: 4-2 (3-1 on Day 2)

Kansas State vs. Iowa State (Even)

Ohhhh Jesus. I have been trying to figure out who to pick on this one since last night and settled on just picking the underdog straight up. So what does Vegas do? Make the odds even to make it harder on the world.

Both teams are well represented in KC, both are good squads, however Iowa State looked overly impressive in a romp over Baylor while Kansas State struggled to put away TCU. Give the Cyclones three or four points and I would be tempted to pick them, but in this situation I’m going with the better team off a tough game. Kansas State

Kansas vs. West Virginia (KU -10.5)

Of course this would happen to Kansas basketball. Their worst team this decade is handed a first round win by an incompetent Texas team (0-6 in the final 2:44, yet somehow UT hit the last field goal?) and then they happen to get a 10 seed in the semifinals? Of course Jayhawk luck would prevail.

This West Virginia team is scrappy and two unlikely wins away from actually making the damn tournament. However, their luck and energy are probably going to run dry in Phog Allen East tonight. Here’s hoping it doesn’t. Kansas *gags* wins, but the Mountaineers cover the spread. Let’s keep this cover train rolling. West Virginia, +10.5
