Our Top Handicapper, John Fisher, January 5 Notes

When a team just likes to play offense and can care less about defense I will lean towards the more defensive team as a Dog of +7 points.
Wisconsin isn’t really a shell of what they were last year but I like some of their parts such Freshman Ethan Happ and Nigel Hayes. They still grind an opponent on the offensive end . This does not compliment the Hoosiers one bit. INDIANA has been outlasting their opponents mentally and physically lately but I believe WISCONSIN will give them a fight to the end. 4 STARS WISCONSIN +8

John Fisher Las Vegas, Nevada
WINNER WISCONSIN +8..,,easy…never was behind by more then 6 points entire game. INDIANA 59-58. Both these teams stunk but we will take the easy DOG COVER

I’m going to take the Cats here because their back court is much better then the Tigers. Talk is all about C Simmons which is well deserved. However, this is a team game and there are far too many variables to go against the Cats here. Everyone is healthier and their practice was just spot on this week in preparation of this game. So far the good teams in conference play are doing well on the road. See UNC and Oklahoma. Kentucky will eventually wear down LSU. You have to have good FT shooting and 3 point shooting to stay above these Cats. LSU doesn’t have either. 5 STARS BEST BET CATS

LSU 85-67

CATS BIG men are awful.will not make it in the NBA….they have no offensive skills…this team will be a 5/6 Seed co e Tournamnet time.
LSU starting to come into their own.

I was burned yesterday in a similar play as a small away favorite Sienna lost in three OTs to a Home Manhatten team that shot both season high % in FTs and 3 pters. If that is what it takes so be it. Vandy has the better complete team an is desperate for a quality win. They have been a DISSAPPOINT thus far. Yes, one can say they lost to quality opponents KANSAS, BAYLOR , Dayton, PURDUE, LSU but they seem to lose focus and never play a complete 40 minutes of basketball. Look for their size to cause problems for Arkansas especially in the paint. Coach Anderson seems to play around too much with his defense and honestly his troops aren’t disciplined enough to make it work. I like Vandy here as my GUARANTEE PLAY

Loss Arkansas 90-85 in OT

LOSS once again another OT game….this is getting old….Baldwin completely did Vandy in with his 8 turnovers….Vandy out shot out three pointed out rebounded but 25 turnovers gave this average Arkansas team life. Joke. Vandy defense is vanilla….Lachance Fisher Davis are like ghost ….tough loss….5-10 L 15 plays is not going to keep me on top….will do better …Dogs keep winning…need to get back on the Dog track.
