So I just got done watching Duke / MSU classic and a short time after , I see opener for Auburn vs. Virginia. Coach Pearl one of the best. Auburn, by far, playing their best basketball in God knows how many years. They beat a great Tennessee team by 30 in sec final. They humble the likes of UNC as a 5 pt underdog. They then finish Kentucky's season as a 4 and a half pt. dog. They lose one of their players, ok. Virginia (who I loved because of what happened to them last year) squeaked by a good Purdue team and beat Oregon by 4 in game before that. I expected to see Va. a small favorite to Auburn. I see Virginia open at -5.5 .wow. An open invitation to bet Auburn against the #1 seed that most people had going down in brackets. Las Vegas telling me that Virginia s suffocating half court defense will be TOO much for Auburn. Dont fall into trap. Virginia 70 Auburn 60. A gift from Franklin U.
