There are a couple games I love in the tournament today, but I’m not that brave to give y’all a parlay on the last day before the Sweet 16. I’ll see how the day goes, and I may give my other play in our IG story. There’s a direct link to the Ask the Bookie Instagram account here and on the top right of the main page so you don’t miss it. OK…big play today.

This could possibly be the game of the day in the round of 32 when the Buffalo Bulls and Texas Tech Red Raiders meet in this West Region 2nd round tilt.
The Bulls may be one of the more underrated teams in the dance, with only 3 losses on the year to take 1st in the MAC E. All 3 of their losses came on the road, and are currently riding a 13-game winning streak.

The Red Raiders were riding a 9-game win streak of their own until a 79-74 loss to West Virginia in the quarterfinal of the Big 12 Tournament. They took care of Northern Kentucky in the opening round, and are a 4-point favorite in this one.
The Bulls score the 9th most points per game in the nation at 91, with the Raiders 81st with 72. On the defensive end, Buffalo also holds the edge there, allowing 70.63 PPG opposed to Texas Tech’s 73.06.
I love Buffalo to cover the 4, and I like them SU as well. Texas Tech are only .500 ATS on the season, and I love Buffalo’s experience added with Nate Oats’ intensity, they will be ready for this one on a big way.
This one will be close at the half, but the Bulls will slowly wear down the Red Raiders en route to a berth in the Sweet 16.
