Score: 68 - 88
Point Spread: -5/-108 Marquette
5* NCAA TOURNAMENT ATS ANNIHILATOR: Marquette -5.5
This is one of my biggest blowouts of the first round, as I look for Marquette to win this game by 15-20 points. The Golden Eagles are without question the better team in this matchup. In my opinion BYU is overrated. They lost 56-73 in a game against Wisconsin earlier this season. The same Wisconsin team, Marquette went on the road and beat 61-54!
BYU is lucky to even be in the field of 64. They were down 25-points to Iona in the play-in game on Tuesday. While the Cougars were able to rally for the win, most good teams would never let a lead like that slip away. The great thing about BYU's comeback is it got the Golden Eagles attention. Marquette will come into this game thinking they have to keep the foot on the gas the entire game, which is exactly what we want for this 5.5-point spread. BET MARQUETTE -5.5
