The Morning Line March 7th: Baylor vs. West Virginia, Louisville vs. Virginia, and more

The last weekend for major college basketball, and some terrific mid-major championship games as well

The Baylor Bears head to Morgantown to face the West Virginia Mountaineers, who needs the win to have a .500 record in the Big XII this year. The computers love WVU, especially for a team that’s underwater in their league, as they’re 12th in Ken Pom and 19th in NET. But the results haven’t been there in conference play, but their win over Ohio State in December certainly helps now. There’s some injuries for Baylor to keep an eye on, but for now the Mountaineers are a one-point favorite at home. The bettors seem to like the road team, with 78% of the bets and 87% of the cash on the Bears at DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Louisville Cardinals wrap up at least a share of the ACC title if they can beat the Virginia Cavaliers today in Charlottesville. UL has lost three of their last six, but are still in the mix to win pick up the ACC Tournament championship next weekend as well. Meanwhile Virginia was an NIT team six weeks ago, but won 10 of 11 to close strong and are now a lock for the field. It’s all about seeding for the ‘Hoos, who are a two-point favorite at home today. UVA is getting 28% of the bets and 38% of the action as of now.

And the best game of the day might be for the Mountain West Conference Championship, as Sam Merrill and Utah State take on Malachi Flynn and San Diego State. The Aztecs are 40 minutes from a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, while the Aggies are likely in the field as well, but a win would lock it up. It’s been a terrific tournament in Las Vegas, and SDSU is laying 5.5 for the bettors that think The Show can finish off a fantastic season with the double.
