Friday’s Picks For the 2014 NCAA Tourney

Yesterday I went 7-8-1 on my sixteen picks, with two incredibly crushing losses — St. Joe’s +4.5 vs. Connecticut and N.C. State +2.5 vs. St. Louis. Both of these teams led throughout the entire game, covering was a breeze. Until, that is, overtime arrived and they both somehow managed to choke away not just the lead but their covers as well. Win those two games — and I’ll be honest, I was already counting them both as wins, especially N.C. State, which was up 16 late in the game — and I would have finished off the first day 9-6-1.


But we fight on. 

So here are today’s best picks. We begin with mine and Todd’s best five picks from FS1 last night.
