Estimated tip-off times for tonight's games are 6:07 pm EDT for Butler vs. Michigan State and 8:47 p.m. EDT for Duke vs. West Virginia. The games are being held in Indianapolis, IN. Butler is favored over MSU and Duke is favored over WV, neither by big margins.
We have learned that actual tip off can vary from the official estimate. Here are my predictions *IF* games tip-off at these times. If they don't, I will post revisions as quickly as possible after actual start times.
Butler vs. Michigan State
Butler is Mercury (ruler of both 1st and 10th houses); Michigan State is Jupiter (ruler of both 7th and 4th). Moon is the flow of events. Jupiter is within three degrees of its own cusp 7, suggesting that MSU is in control of its own destiny. More importantly, the Moon at 15.53 Sag will square Jupiter at 17.55 Pisces, then conjunct cusp 4 at 18.42 Sag: Michigan State wins.
Duke vs. West Virginia
Duke is Venus, West Virginia is Mars. Moon is Lord 10, Duke's success; per Frawley's advice, we will leave the Moon as the flow of action and do without a Lord 10. WV's success, Lord 4, is Saturn.
The only clear testimony here is that Moon, 17.18 Sag, immediately squares Jupiter at 17.57 Pisces (relevance unknown), then makes a sextile to Fortuna at 19.05 Aquarius. Moon sextile Fortuna favors the favorites: Duke wins.
I will post the charts once they are final (with tip off times confirmed).
