So Kobe is a game time decision at 9am PT. The ten point spread for the Pacers is on high alert just and will sink rapidly. I’ll have more insight via twitter as more news comes out.

In college today there are plenty of games to key in on. I’ll start off in the PAC-12 which I believe has had the most exciting games thus far in conference tournament play. UCLA against Arizona is a curious line and intriguing matchup. Arizona is favored by four but I believe that’ll move down a half point. Grab UCLA as this game should come down to the wire. Arizona just does not pull away from teams. Shabazz Muhammed is back in his home town and will put on a show.

Another matchup I like is UMASS in the underdog role vs Temple. Temple may be playing their best basketball now but that was during a stretch that they had to win. Now that they’ve solidified a tournament berth, will the inconsistent Owls rear their heads once again? UMASS matches up well and has a chance for the outright upset.

Possible moneyline parlay

UMASS, UCLA, Lakers, and Maryland. Huge return.

March Madness is just around the corner and Vegas is preparing as usual. Two years ago I hit the Uconn Huskies in late February and won a hefty payout. Last year I fell short with Louisville at 40-1 odds. I’m taking a different approach to this tournament.

With zero clear cut teams, it’s going to be a tourney full of surprises. Why not root for teams to reach the sweet sixteen, elite eight, or final four? Each team that makes the tournament gets odds on reaching a certain round.

Look for your team on Wynn’s updated odds sheet. I will have a column out shortly before conference tournaments. Below I have starred three teams that I like to reach the sweet sixteen that should have favorable odds. Syracuse I like to reach the elite eight, and currently I like Michigan State to win the tournament. Izzo is a tournament coach, that has the talent to complement his coaching this year.
