The Raiders have won 5 straight and have been winning my lowering their turnovers and being more patient on the offensive end. Kansas will be lock for number 1 ranking and might over look the Raiders In preparation for Texas. Kansas did win by DD at Texas Tech so perhaps Vegas has to add a few points the Raiders way given the Jayhawks are 16-5 ATS AT Home. We will take the star points. 14 is steep. 4 stars Texas Tech +14
WINNER-TEXAS TECH +14 Kansas 67-58 …too much chicken on this bone. Vegas gave it to us here.
I said this last week. If Loveridge, Taylor, and Tucker can not be so bad Utah is dangerous. They are all playing well and shooting lights out. With ALL American Poetl attracting all the attention look for this trend to continue. Arizona could not stop Colorado and they will have more difficulties versus Utah who is 15-2 at Home. 4 Stars Utah -3
WINNER….UTAH-3..PREDICTION ON TAYLOR WAS RIGHT ON AS HE FINISHED WITH 19 POINTS…70-64 UTAH
Nova lost their number ranking after Xavier whom we picked blasted them at Home. I like for the, to bounce back versus a Marquette team that is hot or miss and difficult to HC. We will take Nova to have a DD lead starting the 15 minute mark in second half and to keep it until the end. 75-62 Nova 4 stars nova -8
WINNER…VILLANOVA -8…NOVA 89-79…PRETTY MUCH START TO FINISH DD lead for Nova…nice bounce back.
The Bulldogs have won 4/5 ATS versus Mississippi in head to head. I will take the two headed threat of Mann and Gaines over Moody this time. Moody got the best of them last time out with 29 points as Mississippi won by just one. Revenge time for Georgia -3
WINNER…GEORGIA-3….Bid 2nd half for BULLDOGS as they easily cover the one dimensional Rebels.
Providence has an awful 6-12 ATS record at Home and most sharps will go against them because they have not proved they can really give a team a bearing. They have a short bench and tend to gas on offense. They were also 8 point favorites against DePaul and lost out right by 7 points. The consensus is at 75% for this game so expect line to hit 11/12. Take Providemce because DePaul will crumble here as Providence will play hard here. 4 stars
WINNER…PROVIDENCE -12.5…PROVIDENCE 87-66…BENTIL 28 pts A MAN AMONGST BOYS…EASY DD VICTORY
The Cames have quietly put up another great season. They are sound on both sides of the court and are coming off a big win versus Virginia. Cardinals playing back to back away games and going to sunny Miamim could be too much for this team. Love this line as I believe it should be like 5 points. This is my best bet 5 star play. Miami -2.5
BEST BET WINNER….MIAMI -.5 MIAMI 73-65….LOCKDOWN DEFENSE AND FTS THE DIFFERENCE AS CANES HOLD HOME COURT AND OUR Best BET.
This is revenge game for VCU as they lost to GW by 3 points at home last month after winning 12 straight games. However, with a team full of confidence and playing at Home GW controlled pace and play better for much of the game. The FT shooting will be the difference in this game. The Colonials shoot FTs at a high Clip at Home and with the Rams aggressive defense I believe they will get plenty of opportunities. This is my GUARANTEE PLAY
LOSS….GW PK…VCU 69-65. POOR SHOOTING AND MENTAL TOUGHNESS MIGHT OF COST THESE SENIORS A TRIP TO BIG DANCE.
I’m going with Evansville and the Under here. They played to a 57-54 total earlier this year..25 points lower then today’s total. Since game is in Evansville the pace will be better. However, look for defensive intensity in this key matchup. Look fOr Balentine and Mockviciois to get to the ft line here, I see a 67-59 final. 3 stars parlay EVANSVILLE -4 UNDER 36..Get my GUARANTEE PRIMETIME LOCK GOING TODAY
WINNER/LOSER…WINNER…UNDER 136…54-52 106 pts N Iowa winner ….game completely even and my write up spot on but came out on winning and losing end.
