At 7:35 pm, on Friday, in the NCAA Tournament, our selection is on the Purdue Boilermakers minus the points over Gonzaga.  The Boilermakers were my preseason Futures pick to win the NCAA Title (at 15-1 odds), and they've done nothing to reduce my confidence.  We played on the Boilers in their opening round game vs. Grambling, and got the $$$ in their 28-point win, but we stayed on the sidelines in their 39-point blowout win over Utah St.  We'll jump back in and lay the points with Purdue against Gonzaga, as NCAA teams that won their first two tourney games by a combined 55+ points have covered 67% since 1990 in the Tournament's Sweet 16 Round.  Gonzaga also won its two tourney games in blowout fashion by 21 points each.  Unfortunately, it's an ugly 1-10-1 ATS its last 12 games after back-to-back wins by 15+ points.  These two teams met earlier this season, and Purdue handed the Zags a 10-point loss, 73-63.  The Boilers are 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 non-conference games, while Gonzaga is 19-31-1 ATS in its last 51 non-conference games, including 0-11 ATS vs. non-conference foes on 2-game or better) ATS win streaks.  Take the Boilermakers.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

Al’s Pick Purdue Boilermakers: -5.5 -105
