5-3 is over 60% so I can't complain too much but I am shocked that Minnesota got beat at home by the worst team in the Big 10. Also disappointed the Blue Hens slept walked through the first half of their game and got the push. Not sure what's going on with that team.
Of the 5 wins I got last night (all money lines) 4 would have covered the spread making my record 4-4 which would have resulted in a loss. I'm still loving the MLs!
Not a lot to choose from today but I think I may have found a couple of gems so let's get 60!
|Last 90 Days||297||235||7||55.8%|
Memphis (-379) @ Rutgers: Rutgers is not a good basketball team and Memphis has yet to lose two in a row. Their coach is the optimist's optimist and will have them focused and ready to play tonight.
Towson (+2) @ Northeastern: I'm going against my alma mater here because I know how terrible the Huskies are. They are 9-18 overall and 6-7 in the Colonial. Towson is only 2.5 games back in the conference and need this win badly to keep pace with Delaware who they beat on Sunday. I can't figure out why this spread is +2 but I'm going to take it. It did open at +1 and moved to a pickem early then the public jumped on it and bet it up to 2. I like being on the other side of the public in this one.
Michigan St (-5.5) @ Purdue: You have to believe that Tom Izzo will have his Spartans focused for this one. They totally blew it Sunday losing at home to Nebraska and now have no room for error as they are tied in the Big 10 with Michigan. Purdue has yet to beat a ranked team this year and is not a good basketball team. MSU is a Final Four team when healthy and they are getting there as Appling is back in the lineup. Look for Sparty to be focused and ready to play tonight.
Valpo @ Wis Green Bay (-465) : Valpo is decent no doubt about that. They have a wining record and are 2.5 games back in the Horizon. However Green Bay is at the top and lost to Valpo early in the year. They get them at home so I'm thinking revenge factor here plus it's a winnable conference game. Look for it to be tight but Green Bay gets the W.
Uconn (-502) @ Temple: Temple is coming off of that huge win against SMU and should come out a bit flat. Uconn has won 9 of their last 11 games including beating Temple by 24. Uconn is just too talented for a Temple team that will inevitability have a let down.
Washington St @ Oregon St (-404): Here I'm picking against the Cougars as much as I'm picking the Beavers. Washing St is terrible at 9-16, second to last in the Pac-12, and on a 4 game losing streak. This team is lost and won't have much to play for especially on the road. Oregon St at least has a winning record and can score averaging 76 PPG and having flashes of brilliance beating UCLA, Stanford, and playing Cal close. Talent and home court win here.
Houston (+1) @ Warriors: I'm counting on the fact that D12 is still in a good place and Golden St won't be able to control the paint since Bogut probably won't play.
Good Luck All!
