#NCAA Selections – Round One, Day One – March 21, 2013

Here are the complimentary NCAA SpotPlays.com Selections for – March 21, 2013. Best of luck, and if you are wagering, always remember to stay within your comfort zone.

NEW MEXICO -11 over Harvard.  The angle is fairly simple here. Harvard is a fairly weak Ivy League winner, sporting only 19 wins on the season. In most years the Ivy League representative has a tough time staying with single digits of any decent opponent in the tournament, and New Mexico is hardly just an average team. The #2 RPI Lobos have a chance of making a serious run in this tournament, especially given the bracket they drew.  They should have little trouble covering this spread.

BELMONT +4 versus Arizona. The Wildcats started out hot and at one point were #1 in the country. They ended the season going 11-7 while facing some suspect competition. Belmont went 26-6 while facing the #2 RPI non-conference schedule in the country. They have a relentless defense and could pull the upset in the opening round.

MONTANA +13 1/2 versus Syracuse. There is no telling how the Orangemen will respond to a devastating loss in the Big East Tournament, when Louisville unleashed a 44-10 run in the 2nd half to blow Syracuse out after the Orangemen were already tasting victory. The Montana Grizzlies were 19-1 in their conference and they have an excellent shooting team to “hang” with the big name school.

LOUISVILLE -26 over NC A&T.  On a neutral court this might be an appropriate line, but even though this game is not at the Yum Center, Louisville will play in front a home court at nearby Rupp Arena. Everything is clicking for the red-hot Cardinals and it’s hard to see them not winning this game by about 40. Their bench could win this game by huge double digits. Their outstanding defense will keep the Aggies, who were 8-8 in the MEAC, from doing much scoring.
