Tonight’s Action

No. 11 UCLA vs. No. 1 Michigan

Watch: 9:57 p.m. ET, TBS

Odds: Michigan -6.5 || O/U 136

Pick: The Pac-12 has been the story of this tournament, but that likely comes to an end tonight, as the two remaining teams are both decent-sized dogs. Our hearts say UCLA covers this spread, but our minds say this number is a little too low. Roll with maize over gold, and look for the Wolverines to win by double digits in a low-scoring, low-possession game.

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

Baylor won 81-72 behind MaCio Teague’s game-high 22 points.

Sports Section advised you to take Baylor and lay the points (boom!), and bet the under-148.5 (ugh).

Subscriber Afshin Zahraee (@AfshinZ951) had Baylor and came closest to the final score. No one had Teague leading the way.

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
