Maybe I am jumping on the Bandwagon too late here as UCF has compiled one of the best ATS marks in the country at 13-3. They are 7-1 at Home ATS. Memphis should be a little angry after losing back to back games . But the loss to East Carolina was a big surprise and tells me they probably should not be favorites here. UCF has the tallest team in the nation but is forced to play zone because of 7’6″ Tako Fall from UCF. This zone will help,because Memphis just can’t shoot well. Only way they blow out UCF in this game is if they get them to turn the ball over and get easy transition baskets. If this game is played in half court sets Memphis is in trouble. 3 Stars
Loss Memphis 97-86 …just like a thought I ate the cheese after Memphis hits their most threes 13 and best % the entire year. To boot they made their FTs and UCF missed 7 consecutive shots near the end…I can see why UCF covers….tough team to play….Memphis just shot a once in a lifetime lights out…..they barely beat the spread even so…I,would do,this game 10,more times….
It’s rare that I will go,against a Home conference Dog but this Dog will be put out of its misery. Wake Forest has looked awful and Coach Manning is wishing he can put on a uniform. Freshman Crawford looks very tired and Big Man Thomas has been a liability as of late shooting just 51% from the charity strip his last 10 games. That is not good considering he ranks in the Top 15 for getting to the line. Virginia was my play against two days ago when they played Syracuse. Frankly I was fortunate as Syracuse kept making three pointers to help,me cover by 1.5 pts. This time lets take a hot F Brogdon and Virginia that is due for an ATS win as backers for VA are hiring with a 1-6 l7 and 1-5 ATS away from Home. This time they cover and win by 9 points. 4 Stats Virginia -6.5
Loss..after two weeks Wake Forest decides to play defense?Okay? More importantly Freshman Crawford was MIA and played well.
Virginia wins on a last minute collapse by Wake Forest 72-71…
