The No. 8 Auburn Tigers and Miami Hurricanes play in the NCAA Tournament second round at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, SC.
The Hurricanes get here after beating USC Trojans in the 1st round 68-66. Charlie Moore made two free throws with three seconds left to win the game and finished with 16 points. The Hurricanes leaned heavily on Wong the first 37 minutes, then got contributions from Moore and Kameron McGusty to advance.
Kameron McGusty is averaging 17.4 points and 1.7 steals for the Hurricanes. Isaiah Wong is averaging 9.5 points over the last 10 games for Miami.
In their last 10 games the Hurricanes are 7-3, averaging 71.6 points, 26.0 rebounds, 14.6 assists, 8.6 steals and 3.0 blocks per game while shooting 48.3% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 71.4 points.
The Tigers get here after beating Jacksonville St. where they showed an absolute domination during the whole game. J. Smiths led the team with 20 points and 14 rebounds.
Kessler is averaging 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.6 blocks for the Tigers. Jabari Smith is averaging 13.4 points over the last 10 games for Auburn.
In their last 10 games the Tigers are 6-4, averaging 75.3 points, 39.4 rebounds, 17.2 assists, 7.0 steals and 6.7 blocks per game while shooting 39.2% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 66.5 points per game.
Miami are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Miami's last 8 games.
Auburn are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Auburn's last 6 games.
I know it's tempting to take Miami with the points but the Tigers will be too much for them. Auburn have lost only 5 game this season and they have been profitable covering the spread with a 20-12-1 record overall. The Tigers defense are holding their opponents to just 38.2% FG and are allowing 66.5 ppg in their last 10 games. I like Auburn to win by 7-9 points.
PICK: Auburn -6.5 (-110)
