NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Bucknell Bison vs. West Virginia Mountaineers

Bucknell +13 vs. West Virginia O/U 148 
Recommendation: Bucknell
 
 
West Virginia is deep, athletic and forces turnovers as well as any team in the country with their pressing style but now they are up against a Bucknell squad that will look to slow them down and grind in the half-court at every opportunity. If that occurs, it will force West Virginia to have to execute their offense and make shots in the half court and that is something they have struggled with on multiple occasions this season. I’m not fully convinced that the Mountaineers can execute well enough in a half-court game to be able to win this game by the margin that this pointspread is calling for. Bucknell has a couple strong interior players including junior forward Zach Thomas who leads the team in scoring at 16 ppg and is second in rebounding and their center Nana Foulland is second in scoring and the Bison’s leading rebounder. Bucknell has a fairly solid rebounding rate on the season so they shouldn’t be intimidated by West Virginia in the battle on the glass. Bucknell has multiple solid ball handlers in their backcourt led by PG Stephen Brown and SG Kimbal MacKenzie. Brown has a solid 2.62 assist-to-turnover ratio (163 assists and 62 turnovers for him this season) on the campaign now much of that did come against a softer schedule but this at least indicates that the Bison PG has taken care of the basketball for much of the season and that of course is crucial to success against the presses of West Virginia. The Mountaineers were money burners all season long as double digit chalk notching a 3-10 ATS mark in 13 games as double-digit favorites this season and I’m not sure this matchup against Bucknell will prove to be one that allows them to ever gain a comfortable margin in this game.
