Tonight’s Action

11 Drake vs. 11 Wichita State

Watch: 6:27 p.m. ET, TBS

Odds: Drake -2 || O/U 140

Pick: This matchup is (obviously) close on paper. The tickets are coming in on the name-brand Shockers, but the money is flowing in on the 25-win Bulldogs. We’re following the cash this time and siding with a Drake team that ranks 19th in offensive efficiency. 

Skip the spread and take the Drake moneyline (-135); lean over as neither defense cracks the top 100.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Bucks-76ers, the score, and the leading scorer. 

The Bucks won 109-105 in overtime, and Giannis dropped a game-high 32. Sports Section’s March Madness bankroll took a hit since we had the Bucks -5.5 and the over.

Subscriber David Nagelberg (@SportsGuruDave) had Milwaukee winning 118-104 and went with the no-brainer Greek Freak pick. Good stuff, David!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
