TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, MARCH 3RD
#870 BRADLEY (-10′) over Northern Iowa at 1 PM EST
Peaking at the right time on a blistering 10-0 SU and 8-2 ATS run, Bradley will have no trouble steamrolling Northern Iowa in this Arch Madness battle. The Panthers enter this contest off solid 75-62 postseason victory over the Redbirds and they’ll be in trouble matched up against the MVC’s top team.
A quick peek at the history in this series shows that the Braves have performed well as a favorite inking a profitable 22-5 SU and 17-8-2 ATS mark in the last 27 meetings. In this setting battling a Northern Iowa team that arrives off a straight up win, Bradley improves to a powerful 13-2 SU and 11-3-1 ATS. Also, in the Quarterfinals of the MVC Tournament, No. 1 and No. 2 seeds hold a highly profitable 60-3 SU and 41-20-2 ATS record. If our “play on” No. 1 of No. 2 seed is matched up against an opponent that arrives off a pointspread win, this technical situation tightens up to a solid 51-1 SU and 36-14-2 ATS including an elite 26-1 SU and 21-5-1 ATS provided their foe holds a team won/loss percentage of .425 or higher.
Even though the Panthers enter this tournament matchup off a SU and ATS victory over the Redbirds, it is important to note that head coach Ben Jacobson and his kids actually struggled down the stretch posting a weak 2-8 SU and 3-7 ATS mark in their last 10 games. To make matters worse, when stepping up in class and fighting a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .740 or better, UNI has been a poor source of income notching a rough 6-24 SU and 9-20 ATS including a pathetic 2-18 SU and 5-15 ATS in this situation priced as a pup of +4 or more.
Defensively, the Braves are ranked 13th in scoring allowing an average of only 61.3 points per game and they’ll lean on that tenacious stop unit to get this win and cover. Take Bradley. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
