Wow looks like Vegas wants to hedge their losses here and get some Spartan action. They saw how vulnerable they were against Oakland without Valentine. Now they play a team that has more balance and plays better defense in the Hawkeyes. F Uthoff is Iowas Valentine. He creates matchup nightmares because he moves week off of C Woodbury screens. This game would be tough for the SPARTANS if Valentine was healthly. They would be a 3 point favorite here. Without him we are looking at a 6 point swing which is justified. I will wait until morning line to see if Money line will be available. Take Money line here . It’s worth the price. I’ve lost too many 1 pt half pt lines lately.

Let’s take the Under here with Demon Deacons and Tiger. I also like Wake Forest but They hurt me the last time I took them by surrending a 36-18 lead versus Xavier. They went on three scoring draughts draughts in which they did not make a FG in 5 minutes including the last 5 minutes of that game in which they just needed 1 point to cover. Both teams have been off one week and while they both never have problems with the shot clock I see a sloppy game as high teams have bugs that will hurt easy buckets plus FT Shooting issues plague both teams.
WINNER..UNDER 163 hits easy as I stated the lay off would hurt in the first half and it did as just 63 points were scored.Final WF 77-71 total 148 under by 15 pts!
The Horns will be without the services of C Ridley due to a broken foot that happened in practice on Saturday. Perhaps this will equal things as C Brimah from Uconn went down earlier for Uconn as well.Without Ridley the Horns lose a significant defensive player that really helped TEXAS with rebounding and blocking shots. Without his services I see Uconn dominating the glass. F Hamilton from the Huskies is a difference maker. His ability to create shots and take advantage of his MATCHUPS is the X factor. TEXAS can’t play man to man because there is know one on their team that can really match up with Hamilton except for F Tevin Mack but he is a offense liabilty. This is Uconns first true Road game so that scares me a little. But I expect Gibbs , Hamilton , and Purvis to outplay Davis, Felix, and Taylor. Ridleys absence will be felt. GUARANTEE PLAY HUSKIES
