Dayton enters play with a mar of 25-10 while the Stanford Cardinal is 23-12 season to date. The Flyers have put to impressive efforts in the NCAA Tournament as they win two close games by beating Ohio St 60-59 and they the team beat Syracuse 55-53. Those were two very good defensive efforts to see the Flyers held both teams from major conferences to less than 60 points. The Flyers are a very good offensive team that connects on 46.4% of their shots and 37.6% from the three point line. They have more athleticism than the slow footed Stanford Cardinal team. Stanford beat an overrated New Mexico team that was not as good as the Lobos teams the past few seasons. They caught Kansas is a good spot because the Jayhawks had a key injury to their center. Stanford is the type of program that will have trouble against athletic teams. We saw the Cardinal get eliminated from the PAC 12 Tournament against a good athletics team in the UCLA Bruins by the 84-59 score. Look for Dayton coach Archie Miller to set up a good game play to exploit the lack of speed of the Cardinal. In the Stanford versus Kansas game we saw the Cardinal defense give plenty of open looks to the Jayhawks. The problem was the Jayhawks could not make their open looks and were forced to drive the basket where Stanford was waiting for them. Dayton will hit outside open looks and create lanes to the basket to exploit this Stanford team. The Cardinal met two cold shooting teams thus far in the tournament.
With our college basketball pick on Thursday we will play on the Dayton Flyers +3 points against the Stanford Cardinal but shot for the best number and check the sports odds.
