The Draft

POWERED BY

This was supposed to be the year of the Big Ten in men’s college basketball. Yet, here we are. The Pac-12 just sent four teams to the Sweet 16 — double that of any conference.

Making Headlines

NFL: The Falcons agreed to terms on a two-year contract with former Panthers running back Mike Davis, according to ESPN. Also: The Giants agreed to terms with Titans cornerback Adoree’ Jackson on a three-year, $39 million contract, per ESPN.

NBA: The Rockets snapped their historic 20-game losing skid with a 117-99 victory over the Raptors.

Soccer: Tottenham’s Gareth Bale plans to return to Real Madrid after his loan expires this summer, according to ESPN.

Tonight’s Action

Wizards at Knicks

Watch: 7:30 p.m. ET, League Pass

Odds: Knicks -2.5 || O/U 223.5

Pick: In an ultra-watchable Tuesday night affair at the Garden, we’re reminding you that the Knicks can’t have nice things. New York has lost three of four, and their lone win was barely scraping by the 14th-place Magic. 

Take the Wizards plus the points, and grab the easy under. Even New York’s elite defense won’t stop Russell Westbrook, who has a history of lighting up the World’s Most Famous Arena.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of USC-Kansas, the score, and the leading scorer.

The Trojans won 85-51 behind Isaiah Mobley’s game-high 17.

Sports Section had the Trojans -1 but just missed on the under 134.5.

No subscriber had faith in USC or Isaiah Mobley. Time to step it up, people!

Keep the picks coming!
