That’s right I actually have a 5 Star on a play that everyone else is against . I’m sure when everyone sees this they will be NOOOOO. Xavier has been the best team in the Nation this year. But this is a true road game and Wake Forest does not gamble on defense and will make Xavier beat them with medium range two point shots, Wake Dorest ability to rebound will keep this game close..
This will be a better game then most expect. Foul calls will be a key in this game. If Ç Thomas for Wake Forest can stay in the game I like the Demon Deacons to cover.
Wake Forest +7.5

Xavier 79-76

What at a joke. This spread was cover the entire game until the buzzer. Wake goes scoreless from the field in the final 4 minutes and even decided to not shoot the ball in the end?? Strange. An awful loss. Awful bad luck

Xavier 78-70
LOSS

I just don’t see how a sloppy team like Harvard can stay in a game with the fire power of BYU. Yes BYU lets a lot of teams stay in the game perhaps because Coach Rose doesn’t scare them so much from the sidelines. However, I will take BYU as a favorite which btw I do t usually do because Harvard will give them too many possesion to make this a game that will go u der DDs .
3 Stars BYU -7 on a neutral floor.
BYU 79-67

BYU plays for fun and like they aRe at the YMCA. Completely doesn’t matter who they play they should never be big favorites. Coach Burns from BYU is a great guy and does well with his players but his in game Coaching is awful.

Harvard 85-82
LOSS

Stay away from taking a side here. Behas drop a nice line here that really can go either way..The total is what has me Intrigued. They are begging for OVER BETTORS HERE. Line was at 150 and dip down to 146. I’m going to stay with the trend here and take the UNDER. A couple of reasons. IOWA State will go Into some most of the game givin that they are down to 7 scholarship players on the bench with Long out with injury. This is also the Cyclones first true road game and they hit 79 versus N IOWA on nuetral floor a couple of days ago. These Bearcats are a different beast on defense. I see this game having 30-34 OT intervals ten minute intervals.
Take UNDER 146 Prediction 68-64 4 STARS

Big East looks weak to me besides Xavier and Uconn. Beatcats were always one step to slow to cover Iowas States perimeter players.
Total was Over after the first 5 minutes.
81-79 Cyclones …
LOSS

Gtown 62-59

HAD 14 pt lead but just disinterested. It’s time for Coach Thompson to look in the mirror. His offense doesn’t work with these players.

If you have not watched Oakland play now is a good time to see them. They have a NBA 2nd rounder in Kahlil Felder who stands at 5’9″ tall but is quick as lightning. They also have the most interesting player in College Hoops. A 3 point specialist by the name of Max Hooper who you have to see to believe it has ONLY SHOT THREE POINT SHOTS. NOT A SINGLE TWO POINT SHOT THE ENTIRE YEAR.He is 38/88 from distance and 0/0 inside the arc. In other words, even with a Tom Izzo defense of they cheat off him to double low or stop Felder he will be waiting behind the arc. I also like the OVER here as pace will be crazy. 4 STARS Brozzlies and OVER

Grizzlies +10
Over 153

WE GET A MUCH NEEDED DOUBLE WINNER with Oakland and OVER.

MICHIGAN STATE 99-93
DOUBLE WINNER

Virginia is a legit FINAL FOUR TEAM. So why at Home arent they favored by more then 15 Pts against Cal. Vegas knows that Virginia has turned heads especially with spankings versus West Virginia and Uconn. Now they play a team that is traveling all the way from Cal that would probably lose to those two teams on neutral floor. I saw something in this Cal team that Imhave not seen from a Coach Martin team before. Some smarts. Meaning Cal will usually buckle to a VA team as they did versus SDSU. However, when they beat Saint Mary’s and played at their pace I was impressed. Cal will play Virginia close to the best and have enough skilled players to keep this game from going out of control. For 12.5 OT spreads we need Brogdon and Perrantes not to go ballistic from three point line. Cal puts a scare into the Cavs but comes up short.
Virginia 74-67
Cal +12

WINNER ON OUR GUARANTEE PLAY OF THE DAY COME OUT AHEAD IN THE MONEY EVENTHOUGH WE WENT 3-4 for the Night.

Virginia 63-62
BIG WINNER
