FLORIDA-5 BOUGHT 1/2 POINT MANHATTAN HAS A NICE TEAM JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR A BATTLE TESTED SEC TEAM. MANHATTAN HAS 0 QUALITY WINS THIS YEAR
ARIZONA-3 DONT BE FOOLED BY THERE SHOWING IN PAC TOURNEY THEY CARE LESS ABOUT THAT TOURNEY NOW IS THE TIME TO SHINE
WAY TOO ATHLETIC FOR A GOOD SETON HALL TEAM. HALL GOT A BAD BREAK DRAWING THE CATS IN ROUND 1 BYE BYE PIRATS
UNCC+2 SHOULD BE A TIGHT GAME BUT THEY PLAY WELL IN TOURNEY
GOODLUCK FELLAS LETS KILL THE MAN TODAY
Busy schedule for Thursday and what a shame. Good games on tap, so with that said, here are my picks for Thursday >>
San Jose + 0.5
St. Joes - 24.5 BEST BET
BYU + 2
Char*Tex Tch U 146.5
Good Luck guys and remember this is Day 1. Bet wisely !!
I did have BYU as a strong play, then decided to play them as an average play. Snowflake did point out that whoever played Liberty was going to cover. He posted that last week. I am here too confirm that !!!!!!!!
Good Luck fellas $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
MY TWO "IM GOING TO SLEEP IN PLAYS"
2TEAM 4POINT TEASER
Gotta rebound froma 1-2 NIT wed night.
Here it goes:
UCONN -20 over Vermont
- should cover by half
North Carolina -8 over Air Force
- UNC can handle the slowdown game with May eating them up in the middle
Michigan State -2.5 over Nevada
- Mich st will clamp them down for and keep them scoreless for at least one 5 minute stretch
Arizona -3 over Seton Hall
AZ has athletes - nto a great team, but I see them pulling this off.
Seeing these are all favs Maybe I'd throw in a dog with Princton +11.5 - though not a definitely for less bread. Just seems like lot of pts for a team that can keep scores in the 40-50's.
OKAY, OFF TO A GOOD START FOR TOURNEY TIME!!!
3-1 ATS TUES
6-1 ATS WED
PUTS ME AT 9-2 ATS CURRENTLY FOR TOURNEY TIME W/ 1 PUSH.
I HAVE HIT RESEARCH OVERLOAD FOR THE FIRST ROUND. I LIKE THE THURSDAY GAMES & I AM LOVING FRIDAY RIGHT NOW !!! NO MATTER WHAT, I BELIEVE THIS IS GOING TO BE ONE HELLUVA TOURNAMENT.
FIGURED I MIGHT AS WELL POST WHAT I HAVE NOW FOR THE THURSDAY GAMES. I'LL DO MY BEST TO MAKE SENSE OF MY NOTES WITH MY POSTING. HERE WE GO.........................
WAKE FOREST & VA COMM - THIS MAY BE ONE OF THE NICEST LINES OF THE THURSDAY GAMES, HELL, MAYBE THE FIRST ROUND. FROM WHAT I SEE VA COMM IS SO GROSSLY OVERMATCHED IN THIS GAME & WAKE IS POSSIBLY THE MOST DANGEROUS 4+ SEED IN THE TOURNEY. VA COMM'S 3 BIG MEN INSIDE ARE ALL 6'6" ( ONE OF THEM WEIGHS 300 POUNDS ), GIVING WAKE A 3-4" ADVANTAGE INSIDE , NOT TO MENTION THE DIFFERENCE IN ATHLETIC ABILITY + THEY ARE MUCH STRONGER @ THE GUARD POSITION.
VA COMM IS 0-3 VS TOURNEY TEAMS THIS YEAR
57-70 VS RICHMOND
65-86 @ GA TECH
58-68 VS UAB
WAKE FOREST ( 1ST HALF ) -7.5
WAKE FOREST ( GAME ) -12
NC CHARLOTTE & TEXAS TECH - CONF USA GOT 6 TEAMS IN THIS YEAR BUT THEY ARE STILL NOT GETTING THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE. CHARLOTTE PLAYED A TOUGH SCHEDULE THIS YEAR & THEY HAVE BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL ON THE ROAD. I KNOW, I KNOW, BOB KNIGHT, THE GENERAL, WILL HAVE HIS TEAM READY. I AM SURE HE WILL, HE IS A GREAT COACH, BUT THERE IS ANOTHER GREAT COACH IN THIS CONTEST IN LUTZ, & HE WILL HAVE HIS TEAM VERY PREPARED FOR THIS GAME. LUTZ WILL THROW SO MANY DIFFERENT SCHEMES @ YOU ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL. BELIEVE ME I KNOW THIS CUZ I AM FROM CINCINNATI & I HAVE HAD TO WATCH MY TEAM PLAY THESE GUYS TWICE. CHARLOTTE IS PHYSICAL, QUICK, CUT TO THE BASKET HARD, SHOOT WELL FROM THE PERIMETER, & THEY WILL PISS YOU RIGHT THE HELL OFF WITH THEIR MOVING SCREENS.
CHARLOTTE IS 5-5 VS TOURNEY TEAMS : 96-92 @ SYRACUSE / 75-70 @DEPAUL / 64-59 @ SO ILLINOIS / 86-83 @ UC / 77-71 VS LOUISVILLE
AT LEAST 4 OF THOSE TEAMS HAVE BEEN IN THE TOP 25 THIS YEAR, OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD I AM UNSURE ABOUT DEPAUL BEING IN??
TEXAS TECH IS ALLOWING OPPONENTS TO SHOOT 47.6% THEIR LAST 5 GAMES & 44.9% ON NEUTRAL FLOORS.
CHARLOTTE IS 19-4 WHEN THEY SHOOT ABOVE 40% THIS YEAR!
I WILL STOP SLAMMING YOU ALL W/ THE STATS ON THIS ONE BUT JUST SO YOU KNOW - I GOT A LOTTA MO !
NC CHARLOTTE +2.5
AIR FORCE & NORTH CAROLINA - THIS GAME ACTUALLY SCARES ME ON THE SPREAD BUT I THINK I FOUND SOMETHING ELSE WITH VALUE IN THIS GAME. AIR FORCE HAS BEEN SUCKED INTO SOME MORE UP TEMPO GAMES RECENTLY & HAS HUNG, OR WON, SOME HIGHER SCORING GAMES. YOU KNOW UNC WILL PUSH THE TEMPO, AIR FORCE WILL TRY TO PUT THEM TO SLEEP, BUT IN THE END I SEE THIS GAME PUSHING 140+ POINTS.
STANFORD & TEXAS-SAN ANTONIO - THIS WILL BE UGLY !!! THEY HAVE NOTHING BUT A VERY SMALL GUARD WHO WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE ABOVE CHILDRESS'S FRO. THEY HAVE PLAYED 2 TOURNEY TEAMS - ILL CHI 47-73 & OKLA ST 53-83.
STANFORD ( FIRST HALF ) -13.5
STANFORD ( GAME ) -24.5
CHIP ON SHOULDER + DEFENDING #1 SEED + 20 POINT LOSS IN CONF TOURNEY = ST JOES ( FIRST HALF ) -13.5
DAYTON & DEPAUL - I LIKE THE DAYTON TEAM, BUT NOT IN THIS ONE. I KNOW WHAT DEPAUL IS CAPABLE OF & DAYTON IS 0-2 VS CONF USA THIS YEAR & DEPAUL BEAT BOTH THE TEAMS.
MANHATTAN & FLORIDA - THE GATORS ARE HURTING RIGHT NOW. WALSH WAS ON CRUTCHES, ABUKAR IS HURTING, AS WELL AS MOSS. MANHATTAN HAS WEAPONS, THEY ARE EXCITING, QUICK, & I DO THINK THEY SMELL BLOOD. THEY ARE 19-0 WHEN THEY SCORE 70+ & FLORIDA IS ALLOWING 73.6 PPG THEIR LAST FIVE & 72.9 PPG AWAY THIS YEAR.
TEXAS & PRINCETON - THEY MAY BE FROM THE IVY LEAGUE BUT THEY LOST BY 2 TO RUTGERS, LOST BY 18 IN CAMERON, & NEARLY BEAT OKLAHOMA. TEXAS HAS NOT BEEN PLAYING REAL WELL AS OF LATE & COULD BE IN FOR A LONG GAME HERE.
UTEP & MARYLAND - I WAS INITIALLY AFRAID THAT MARYLAND MIGHT BE SPENT AFTER THAT PERFORMANCE IN THE ACC TOURNEY BUT THEN I LOOKED AT THIS MATCHUP. HOW DID UTEP GET THE NOD OVER UTAH STATE??? THEY ARE 0-3 VS TOURNEY TEAMS - 57-70 @ TEXAS TECH, 63-92 @ NEVADA & 60-66 VS NEVADA IN THE TOURNEY. MARYLAND CRUISES IN THIS ONE AS IT IS A WELCOMED BREAK FROM THE CLASS OF OPPONENTS THEY HAVE RECENTLY PLAYED.
MARYLAND ( FIRST HALF ) -3.5
MARYLAND ( GAME ) -6.5
WAKE FOREST ( 1ST HALF ) -7.5
WAKE FOREST ( GAME ) -12.5
AIR FORCE & UNC OVER 128
NC CHARLOTTE +2
ST JOES ( 1ST HALF ) -13.5
STANFORD ( 1ST HALF ) -13.5
STANFORD ( GAME ) -24.5
MARYLAND ( 1ST HALF ) -3.5
MARYLAND ( GAME ) -6.5
THAT IS ALL FOR NOW. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE.
I knew I was in trouble when everyone bet the Dallas game up from 14.5 to 16, but I can't believe Dallas lost the game outright at home to the lowly Hawks. Another 3-1 night, though, makes me very happy. I received a couple gifts with the Indiana and Toronto wins, but I think you all know I was long overdue for some things to go my way.
Anyway, I have no plays for today. Let the fun begin with March Madness today! Good Luck!
Texas Tech -2
My plays for the first day of the dance. I'm amazed at talking to so many of you and the popular 14-2 ATS stat last year for dogs in the first round seems to have been forgotten. A lot of favorites have been picked. Many of the games I'm playing today are going against the popular pick..which is great!!! Good luck and I hope you hit all your winners.
My plays and best bets:
Vermont+20 1/2...Vermont is a solid team and 20 1/2 is too many in the dance. Watch out Huskies, your gonna get backdoored on the cover.
Dayton+2 1/2: I'll take the A-10 over C-USA. Dayton wins outright today.
Manhattan +5 1/2: GTNP (who was hot last week) loves the Gators. I'm on the opposite end. I just don't see the Gators even winning this game. No inside presence, a quality guard in Roberson, but their scoring is terrible. This is a good game for the Gators in that the Jaspers don't play that strong a D, but watch, Gators got rolled by Creighton in the first round last year, it could happen again here. Gators win, but it will go down to the wire.
UTEP+6 1/2: Once again, Maryland plays an incredible ACC tourney and jumps way up in the seedings. Watch out for the rested Miners to come out and make life miserable for the young Terps team.
SIU+2 1/2: An early exit to the Valley tourney and an overconfident bama team leads to a first round exit for the Tide. Everyone is on Bama, and I don't care. Salukis cover or win SU>
SIU Under 134: Both teams plays good defense and first round jitters should slow down the scorers.
Good luck fellas, hope you all hit. Please notice all the dogs, I hope you guys haven't forgotten about last year or the stellar 5 year first day record of the dogs.
GTNP, Schube, Sunday, Stan, Ricky, Flavo, and the rest, thanks for all the input in the chat. Let's smoke these fools!!!!
Me likey the following plays so far:
UTEP +7 *****
Manhattan +5 ***
'Zona -3 ***
'Cuse -2.5 **
Good luck to everybody... Enjoy the games $$$$
Well with all the MADNESS going on I feel left out......as I'm not a big B-Ball fan. But, I will throw a few games out just for fun and I may have some rookie luck! lol
Now back to my reg. picks...2-1 last night and 7-4 on the week.
Det -0.5/Phx (Big line here but easy win)
Cal -0.5/CBJ (same here)
Min +0.5/Bos (upset special, minn playing good, boston letdown)
Buf +0.5/TB (upset, TB cooling off, Buf smells NYI blood and playoffs)
Well... I picked every game yesterday. Even the ones i didn't list won (OK and RU) except for tenn. they almost did it though., losing by 3.
here today's line up. I am just going to list every team that I like, and let you guys sort it out from there. No particular order of preference. i bet them all equally, so even an 8-3 day will be profitable.
good luck today!!!!
tex tech/uncc under 147
MADNE$$ I$ HERE..........
NC state -8
What's up fellas$$$$ It has been a long time since I've posted in here, but it's tourney time!!!! I am out of my slump, been doing well lately, and have regained my confidence to post. I was 3-1 in the NIT last night (posted in chat room) and have been cleaning up in CBB. I will have to look up my last post to find my previous records.
Without further ado...
S. Illinois (+2) Best Bet
The Salukis (Best nickname in CBB) are the new Gonzaga, now that the Zags have gone primetime. This team has been here before and has experienced players, many of whom were on the team 2 years ago when this team went to the Sweet 16. Alabama is young up front and relies to much on these young players for scoring. Better and more Tourney tested guards will lead the Salukis to victory.
S. Illinois 73 Alabama 69
St. Joe's (-23)
I'll be back later with some night games.
Good luck all!!!
NC Charlotte +1.5
St. Joe's -24
Ala. State +34
Wake Forest -12
N. Carolina -7.5
Mich. State -2
6-1 ats last night! Always nice to come into the tourney on a winning note! Will be playing most games so pick your favorite!! Just got to love Direct TV as they cover every game live for around 79 bucks!! (till sweet 16). First good luck to everyone on their picks this week, if my boss is reading this I am still very very sick with that flu thing should be ok by Monday! MANHATTAN +5- little scared as Jaspers are becoming a very public pick and Robertson is a great point guard(may be best in nation) but like the points here vs Fla. team that just have not put it all together.UTEP +6- just cannot see Terps not being a little flat today as they are still just a young team! They win but free throw shooting keeps this under the number! N.C.CHAR+1- Tech not great road team and have been slippin vs quality teams of late. Weak 3 point team ! BAMA -2- better team vs a popular So. ill. team Bama played best schedule in the country it pays off here! WAKE -12 at first leaning towards Commonwealth as this number range on the spot is usually a bad play but Mr Alpholden made me take a closer look and their size could be a major factor!! ST JOES-23- just got a feelin they will take the monkey off the back big time!! BYU +2 gut play just have a feelin!! Cuse line looks funny on paper this usually triggers my gut! STANFORD -25 lone 5:00 game dictates play(sick ask the X she will tell you) plus 20 lines tend to lean towards the fav and here I see a very bumpy ride for the Roadrunners!! GOOD LUCK TO ALL IN THIS SECOND CHRISTMAS SEASON OF THE YEAR!!!
Sorry so late, just wanted to make sure that my homework was complete.
