March Madness – 3.6.2019 – Best Bets for Wednesday’s NCAABB Slate


Hello Daily Play Action! Anthony Marro here back to share my Men’s NCAABB picks with you tonight and every night, as tournament time approaches. This season I have floated around 59% ATS on over 250 picks, and feel I know these teams well enough to provide consistent winners. This article will have my picks but you can also follow my Twitter for all bets against the spread. My write-ups and any O/U action will be posted exclusively here on DPA!

  • Daily Play Action ATS Record: 1-2-0
  • Daily Play Action O/U Record: 1-0-0
  • Season ATS Record: 153-110-7

St. Bonaventure at Davidson, Under 129

  • St. Bonaventure is 9-19-1 O/U on the season in favor of the under
  • After suffering a 75-66 loss against Davidson in their first meeting, St. Bonaventure has broken a 129 point total just twice in the eight games since
  • This is the lowest total this match up is projecting since February 2015 when these teams combined for just 121 points
  • Both teams clock in with extremely slow tempos. Davidson holds the ball for an average 18.4 seconds per possession and St. Bonaventure with a whopping average of 19.1 seconds per possession

Duquesne +7.5 at Saint Louis

  • Duquesne is 7-2 against the spread in away games this season. Meanwhile Saint Louis is 7-8-1 as a home team against the spread
  • Since the start of conference play Duquesne has only lost one of their sixteen games by greater than six points
  • They also have a lot to play for. By winning out Duquesne can secure a top four seed in the A-10 Tourney and a double bye while Saint Louis is nearly a lock to play in the second round
  • In five of the last six games between these two games no team has won by more than seven points. This one will be tight from start to finish

Iowa State -5.5 at West Virginia

  • Iowa State is 15-12-2 against the spread which is impressive considering the tough schedule they’ve faced. Their success against stiff competition is represented by their Top 20 NET Ranking
  • The home team has a strong advantage late in the season as seniors prepare to say goodbye to their fans. The good news however is West Virginia does not have a single senior on the roster
  • In their past four meetings Iowa State has covered the spread. This includes two victories straight up as the underdog and a 25 point victory earlier this season
  • You can argue Marial Shayok is the best player in the Big 12 and he continues to heat up as postseason play draws near

I play every game I post so you should not be afraid to tail, but never go too heavy on any one game. These few weeks of hoops are a marathon not a sprint, so manage your bankroll appropriately. That being said scared money is lost money! Let’s win today Playmakers!
