Hotter Than a Brushfire

I'm 3-0 to start the tournaments and I'm going to keep it rolling! I'm hot hot hot!

Oh baby, Marquette is the most over-rated team in the Tournament and Vermont is the most under-rated team in the dance! 

News-Flash: Marquette Coach Shaka Smart has not won a NCAA tournament game since 2013 with VCU! He's feeling the heat. He did not win a single game in the dance with Texas. This is a nightmare draw for his Golden Eagles in round one! 

Vermont, by contrast, is loose as a goose and having fun! They are 18-1 ATS in their last 25 games after a win. Marquette is 0-4 ATS in their last four NCAA Dance games. 

Let me bottom line this by invoking the late great Dennis Green: Marquette is not who you thought they were. They don't have to bigs to dominate this game, so I expect it to be somewhat competitive. Take the points here.

Godzilla's Pick: Vermont +10.5


  1. T18

    This one you will not win. Marquette is everything their seed says they are. They are very good. Marquette by 17.
