Selection Sunday is packed with win-and-in games

March 13, 2022

Texas A&M vs. Tennessee 

Amalie Arena – Tampa, FL 
1:00 PM ET 
Tennessee -5.5 

The Aggies are on fire. In the SEC Tournament, they’ve knocked off Auburn and Arkansas. Yesterday’s win over the Razorbacks was by 18 points. They’re rolling. And they need to keep making a point to the Selection Committee. Meanwhile, the Vols have secured a high seed. Go with the team with more to play for in this one. 

Hoops Harlen’s pick: Texas A&M +6.5 (-110) 

Richmond vs. Davidson 

Capitol One Arena – Washington, DC 
1:00 PM ET 
Davidson -3.5 

Davidson has been knocking on the door all season long, on the verge of cracking the top 10. They’ve certainly made their case in the Atlantic 10 Tournament, beating Fordham by 18 and St. Louis by 15. Richmond advanced after upsetting Dayton. But the clock strikes midnight on the Spiders today. 

Hoops Harlen’s pick: Davidson M/L (-175) 

Iowa vs. Purdue 

Gainbridge Fieldhouse – Indianapolis, IN 
3:30 PM ET 
Purdue -2.0 

After falling behind early to Indiana on Saturday, Iowa came storming back to advance to the Big 10 championship game. They’ll ride the high of a buzzer-beating win into their showdown with Purdue. The Hawkeyes are hot, having won eight of their last nine. Meanwhile, the Boilermakers have struggled away from home of late. Iowa shines at the neutral site. 

Hoops Harlen’s pick: Iowa +2.0 (-110)
