Pick
-4 MEM (-110) @ Fanduel

8* Take Memphis (#616)

Memphis is ranked #2 in the country in defensive efficiency.  They positively overwhelmed Dayton down the stretch of their NIT opener, closing out the game on a 14-2 run to win and cover.  And the Tigers have really worked on their rebounding in recent weeks; +18 against Dayton, with a positive margin against every team but Big Dance #2 seed Houston since the beginning of February.

These are both problems for Boise.  Broncos head coach Leon Rice: “Their defensive numbers are off the charts.  There’s no way to emulate what they do and how they do it in practice, so, you know, you can kind of have a plan, but…..”  More Rice: “They’re all really athletic…..that presents a big challenge because they use it with their defense and their rebounding.  And it can be overwhelming.”

Boise lost their best defender; their second leading scorer and rebounder, when senior forward Abu Kigab tore his labrum in the Broncos regular season finale.  Three point sharpshooter Max Rice broke his foot in the conference tournament.  That’s two significant late season losses from a ‘good but not great’ rotation, leaving Boise a notch or two outclassed here.  Let’s keep fading the Mountain West!  Take Memphis.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
