Expert sports handicapper Tony George of TonyGeorgeSports.com has his free March Madness play on the UNC Wilmington vs. Virginia game that tips off Thursday March 16, 12:40 EST.
I love fading all the ESPN Bracketology guys because they do not know jack crap about the Las Vegas Line and they tend to direct the average Joe sports bettor this time of year with their opinions. They all love the upset special here and made the Seahawks a public darling and the ol boring Cavs who have no offense. Remember it is Entertainment and hype for the tourney that drives ratings boys, not free winners against the Las Vegas line over the airwaves. You can leave that up to Brent Musbuger and Jimmy Vacarro now on Sirius Radio since they have anointed them suddenly betting experts (seriously up for debate BIG TIME), who are throwing out parlays like candy at a main street parade in a small town on July 4th.
That said Virginia is the top defensive in the country and if you doubt their prowess, please refer to exhibit A: They held North Carolina in their last meeting to half of their season offense average and beat them silly. The Cavs come from the mighty ACC conference who may have 2 teams in the Final 4, and this is a battle tested team who does struggle on offense at times, but when you hold opponent’s to 53 ppg for the season, you can afford to struggle on offense and still win. Did I mention they played in the ACC?
NC Wilmington is not without merit at 29-5 on the year, and they won the Colonial Conference Crown and beat all teams in that tourney by 9 or more points. The CAA conference is like a soap scrimmage compared to the ACC and this is where strength of schedule and opponents RPI ratings prove their worth. The size and strength and depth of Virginia shines here.
