Wisconsin vs. NORTH TEXAS (115') - as Las Vegas, NV

By Tommy Brunson, Featured Handicapper

Not exactly how I drew it up on paper, but a winner is a winner, and after a coin flip weekend, I secured the 75 Dime NBA winner last night on Philadelphia plus the points.

Tommy Knows Hoops!

It is all about this Wolverines-Blazers winner from Sin City on Tuesday.

North Texas averages nearly 65 points per game, while Wisconsin comes into this NIT semifinal game averaging close to 66 points per game, and if both teams hit their average, this game should land Over the total of 115 1/2 points.

The Mean Green has played 2 of their 3 NIT games Over the posted total and has landed Over the total in 4 of their last 5 games overall.

As for the Badgers, Bucky has played 2 of their 3 in this year's NIT tournament Over the posted price.

Also consider the fact that the Mean Green has played 12 of their 20 road and neutral site games Over the posted price, while the Badgers have landed Over in 10 of their 17 road and neutral site games Over the posted price, and the fact that you know both teams will foul if needed in the closing minutes as neither wishes to see their season end here in the semifinals.

While I don't see this one landing Over by a whopping amount, I do think the total is simply way too low.

Go with the Over in NIT semifinal #1 this Tuesday night in Las Vegas.
