Handicapping Notes, Money Leader John Fisher, December 29

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.
Iowa -150 4 STARS

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.
Wake Forest/LSU

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


UCONN defeats TEXAS 71-66 wins our 10 STAR GUARANTEE play and gives me a sweep 4-0-1 in COLLEGE HOOPS.
UCONN+1, FSU+5, IOWA -3, UNDER 148 Lsu/WF , and Wisconsin +6…Up 2k UNITS!!
