Free NCAAB Pick:

LSU Tigers +5

The Michigan Wolverines are the most vulnerable 1-seed as they are playing without one of their best players in Isaiah Livers, and they will finally meet their fate against an extremely talented LSU Tigers. The LSU Tigers really stuck it to the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in a 15-point blowout, but they have been one of the hottest teams in the country as of recent as they have won 5 of their last 6 games. The LSU Tigers are a very explosive offense as Cameron Thomas leads the way with 22.8 PPG while Trendon Watford (16.5 PPG, 7.5 RPG) and Javonte Smart (15.6 PPG) are extremely productive. The Tigers will need to throw all different looks and bodies inside at Hunter Dickerson to slow him down, but I have the Tigers winning in my personal bracket and I will gladly take the points here. Final Score Prediction, LSU Tigers win and cover ATS 75-72.
