The money lines last night were kind to me and strengthens my argument on why betting them is better than the spread. Of the 7 money lines I bet, 6 won outright. Of those 6 only 3 covered the spread which would have resulted in a net loss. Finally, the 3 bets I made with the spread I went 2-0-1.
I still can't believe the Clippers lost to a depleted Spurs team at home. I mean WTF!
Record looking good so lets get 60!
|Last 90 Days||296||235||6||55.7%|
Cincinnati (-292) @ UCF: The Bearcats need this conference win to stay ahead in the AAC. They may be looking ahead a little to their next game vs. Louisville so this might be a close one but I see their defense coming through to get the W.
St. Louis (-337) @ George Mason: The Bilikins are playing phenomenal basketball ranked 9th in defense and averaging 70 PPG. They travel to George Mason who is at the bottom of the A-10. Bilikins get it done by playing good defense and efficient offense.
Manhattan (-394) @ Monmouth: Manhattan needs all the conference wins it can get to stay within striking distance of the MAC leader Iona who they meet on February 28th. Manhattan is averaging 78 PPG, 37 RPG, 6 blocks per game, and 8 steals per game. This is a good basketball team. Monmouth on the other hand is near the bottom of the conference with not much to play for. I see an easy win for the Jaspers.
Delaware (-4) @ Hofstra: The Blue Hens are not going to drop two conference games in a row. They need this win badly to stay atop the Colonial and Hofstra is just what the doctor ordered. Delaware gets back on track.
Illinois @ Minnesota (-339): The Gophers are thriving under Pitino by knowing who they are and what type of basketball team they want to be. They need this conference win to stay relevant in the mighty Big-10. Illinois is reeling right now losing 10 of their last 11 games and is dead last in the Big 10. I don't see much fight from them tonight.
Bulls @ Raptors (-3): We have seen this story before. The Bulls struggle to score and the Raptors don't. The last two times these teams met the Raptors won easily. I see the same thing happening again tonight. Additionally I see the fact that the Raptors are coming off a back to back actually favors them since the Bulls have had a long layover while the Raptors have shook the rust off getting a win vs the Wizards.
Magic @ Cavs OVER (198.5): The system speaks and I listen.
Warriors (-187) @ Kings: Boogie is out for the Kings so I'm betting on the fact that Golden State will control the paint which will open up their outside shooting.
Rockets (-382) @ Lakers: D12 is "in a good place now". That's all I need to hear from the biggest headcase in the NBA. If Howard feels good about playing in LA then I'm on board.
Good Luck All!
