Read below for John Fredericks Quick Picks for March 16, 2024


Nashville at Seattle (EVEN)

The Preds are off an upset win last time out — and they play tonight in the last game of a grueling four-game road trip. On the flip side, Seattle has dropped its past three at home, with some really bad hockey thrown in. The Kraken are a desperate team — a win tonight is paramount to their playoff hopes.

Nashville just wants to get home for Sunday dinner.

Pick: Seattle (EVEN) 

College Hoops

Yale (-2.5) Vs. Cornell

Yale was supposed to be the big dog in the Ivy League this season. What happened? They came in second place and blew big leads down the stretch.

Now it’s payback time. Cornell is a back-bencher program. The Big Red are 3-19 against Yale in their past 22 games.

Pick: Yale (-2.5) 

Purdue (-5.5) Vs. Wisconsin

Purdue is the best team in the nation. Wisconsin is not. Big value here on the Boilers.

Pick: Boilermakers and I’ll have another (-2.5) 

VCU (-2.5) Vs. St. Joe’s

Don’t be afraid; the Rams are a better team. Bet the better team and lay the bucket. See you, St. Joe’s. Phillies are coming to town!

Pick: VCU (-2.5) 

Auburn Vs. Miss. State (+8)

The Bulldogs punched Tennessee in the mouth last night and all hell broke loose. Do they have another left hook left in them?

Pick: Miss. State (+8)

South Florida (-2) Vs. UAB

I love UAB’s fire breathing dragon logo. It’s tied with Delaware’s infamous Fighting Blue Hen as the two best team logos in collegiate athletics.

South Florida has been disrespected all year. Not anymore.

Pick: South Florida (-2)

Texas A&M at Florida (-3) 

It’s Gator time. Too many really good shooters on the court. Aggies will wear down as they lack Florida’s depth.

Pick: Gators (-3) 

St. Bonnie vs Duquesne (-2)

I live in Pittsburgh. Duquesne plays in Pittsburgh. Need I say more?

Pick: Duquesne (-2) 

Colorado (-2.5) Vs. Oregon

Oregon has won three ugly games in a row. Ugly x Ugly x Ugly = Buffaloes.

Pick: Buffs (-2.5)
