Hey Greek, tell Finance how I feel about basketball wagering. lol Up 10, down 17, up 4, lose by 19. I honestly have not watched 1 NBA game all year long. Not one. First College Basketball game I watched was during conference tournaments. Good thing is Baseball is here and the best sport to win and wager on. GL

Washington +3 last night.....score 60 points in the first half, have a 4 point play with 6:58 left to go up 90-81...just cruising...until all they score is 2 points until a meaningless bucket with 7 seconds left and they lose by 6...how can an NBA team that scores 90 points in less than 3.5 quarters only score 2 points basically in 7 minutes? I was lucky that they got a rebound and scored their 4th point in the last 7 seconds so I won my over bet by a half but man that is pathetic!!! And the Wiz could have clinched a playoff spot last night.....Holy Hell.....

Spooky Express Elite Eight Thoughts and picks while clubbing the competition -- Los Angeles Dodgers have already sold 3,000,000+ tickets for this season, and may sell 35,000 season tickets. Now all they have to do is win; they’re 2-0 after the Australia trip, so Don Mattingly’s team is off to a good start. Expectations couldn’t be any higher though. -- So UCLA comes out in the Sweet 16 game with Florida wearing dark blue sleeved uniforms, as John Wooden turns over in his grave. Raises an interesting question; had Steve Alford wound up as coach at his alma mater Indiana, would he have scrapped the traditional candystripe warmup pants? We’ll probably never know. -- 76ers tied an NBA record by losing their 26th game in a row; their over/under in Las Vegas before the season was 16 wins- they’re 15-57 now and no cinch to win another game. Funny thing is, they don’t have the worst record in the league; Milwaukee does. Quality of play on a lot of NBA teams is beyond awful. -- VCU coach Shaka Smart spurned Marquette; where do they go from here? Former UCLA coach Ben Howland would seem to be the safest bet. -- Speaking of VCU, Smart lost assistant Mike Rhoads to Rice, where he will try to invigorate a perennially losing program. Rhoads coached D-II Randolph-Macon for ten years, so he’s got experience as a head coach. You know the Owls will run/press more, which is always a good thing, at least for fans to watch. Rice needs more fans, and much better players. -- Marshall reached out to alum Mike D’Antoni about becoming its next basketball coach, seeing as Kobe Bryant said he doesn’t want D’Antoni back with the Lakers next year. Supposedly, D’Antoni has interest in the job, which would be a very interesting study. -- Of the first 61 plays that were reviewed by baseball’s new replay system, 11 were overturned. -- A movie theater in Brooklyn tossed a patron out for bringing strawberries from the outside while he watched the movie. Problem is, the guy is diabetic and didn’t want to eat junk food that the theater sells. They actually called the cops and had the guy thrown out and wouldn’t refund his $12. Only in New York. -- UCLA’s Kyle Anderson declared for the NBA Draft; I read about it about ten minutes after the Bruins lost to Florida, not that the kid had one foot out the door or anything. -- Ron Jaworski ranked LSU’s Zach Mettenberger as his #2 QB in the NFL Draft, ahead of Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel. Mettenberger tore his ACL against Arkansas in November and can’t work out yet, so it’s a controversial opinion. He’s had NFL-type coaching; Cam Cameron was his coordinator last year. Interesting to see which teams drafts him. -- Free agent RB Maurice Jones-Drew signed with Oakland; when he was a kid, MJD used to mow John Madden’s lawn, so maybe the Raiders had a little bit of an advantage. -- Its amazing the following Steve Fisher has cultivated for his San Diego State Aztecs, what a strong program he has built. 15 years ago, no one went to games; They had a lot more fans than Arizona did in Anaheim Thursday night, a testament to the brilliant job Fisher has done there. -- People ask now and then about the value of sports, why are they important? To me, this is a big part of it. Thursday night, Thurman Thomas posted a picture on Twitter, of him and his wife in Jim Kelly’s hospital room with Mrs Kelly, the four of them smiling for the camera, while they probably were crying inside. Jim Kelly is very, very ill, battling cancer; the bond that these teammates have (Kelly retired in ’96, Thomas left the Bills in ’99) has lasted the 17 years since Kelly stopped playing. Jim Kelly needs all the help/prayers he can get these days. Friends can help. Being on a team, especially a winning team, can somehow bond people together for the rest of their lives. Common experience often does that; can’t really tell you why or how, it just does and when you see pictures like the one last night, of one friend trying to help another in their hour of greatest need, you realize that’s a big part of why sports matter. Spooky Express Plays Arizona / Wisconsin Over 130 Points Arizona pk (moneyline) Already have Florida, Arizona and Michigan State in futures to win their brackets so will watch the Florida game.

Spooky Express Sweet Sixteen Music Video of the Day and random thoughts If you saw the new hit movie Divergent then you heard this song -- Baseball season starting Monday will be like seeing old friends again for the first time in six months; the MLB Extra Innings package is some of the best money I spend all year. Looking forward to watching the A’s every night, but also enjoy broadcast crews with Arizona, the Mets, Marlins, Royals, Padres and Giants. -- Will be interesting if Phil Jackson decides the Knicks’ best course going forward is without Carmelo Anthony and his 23-44 career playoff record. -- Ralph Wilson paid $25,000 for the Buffalo Bills in 1959; they’re worth around $800M now. Will be a sad day if the next owner of the team moves them out of western New York. -- Mavericks beat Oklahoma City in OT Tuesday night; Thunder was +13 in the 27:00 Derek Fisher was on the floor, -22 in the 26:00 he was on the bench. Nick Collison (+5) was the only other Thunder player who was plus in the game. -- Over last three NCAA tournaments, #1 seeds are 5-5 SU in this round, 2-8 vs spread. -- Wisconsin’s Bo Ryan is 1-4 in this round, with underdogs covering all five games; his lone win was over NC State nine years ago. -- Three SEC teams that made the NCAAs are 7-0, which has SEC fans chirping; however their four teams in the NIT all lost in second round. Not as important, but it shows the lack of depth the league has. -- Bryce Harper got thrown out of a spring training game Wednesday for arguing a call at first base on a grounder he hit to second. I’m guessing that instant replay will result in less ejections, right? -- Thursday's circus will be Johnny Manziel's pro day at Texas A&M; hell, George W Bush is going to be there. ESPN might implode today. LOL -- Probably the biggest change in baseball this season is the new instant replay system; teams will have an “eye in the sky”, a replay coach to advise managers whether to use their challenge on reviewable plays. Going to be very interesting to see how this all plays out. -- A by-product of instant replay is that eight new umpires were hired; umpire crews will rotate in/out of the “war room” in New York City, where they will review replays and make decisions. That has to be pretty good duty for umps, who conceivable could go full games with no calls to make. -- Miami’s 21-year old Jose Fernandez will be NL’s youngest Opening Day starting pitcher since Dwight Gooden in 1986. -- We killed it last week with our picks as the tournament got started. Not sure we can duplicate that but we will try. Come back later with some plays. Spooky Express Plays Stanford pk (moneyline) Florida -3 Arizona -7

The Obama Care Hotline's # is 800 382 5968. Go to your phone pad and see that it translates to 800 f--- you. Not kidding, the Hitman wouldn't do that. Further investigation reveals that it was set up by the Dept. of Health & Human Services. Prophetic ??

Spooky sweeps the Friday night board, and I close out a series of 4-0 in my bracket on all 12's vs. 5's thanks to Stephen F. Austin outright! VCU's Jordan Burgess misses 2 critical free throws which translates on the other end to Desmond Haymon's left wing all net 3 pointer while being fouled by JaQuan Lewis! Haymon completes the 4 point play and the Lumberjacks edge the Rams 77-75 in OT! Can't believe I survived a grueling round 1. Can you handle the next two days of round 2's madness? The bracket busting continues!

Best of luck on your plays Marc! I always believed and kept in the back of my head that the "This game is over' remark did Billy Packer in in relation to the integrity of his career. In a semi-final game at the 2008 Final Four between Kansas and North Carolina, the Jayhawks jumped out to a 38–12 lead, at which time Billy Packer declared, "This game is over." However, the Tar Heels clawed their way back in the second half, cutting the deficit to 4 points midway through the second half, though Kansas finished strong to win 84–66. Pundits have noted that this may have been an ominous allusion to Packer's future career as a broadcaster, which was "over" when CBS announced over the summer of 2008 that Clark Kellogg would be taking over the lead color commentary duties. That being said, Kellogg has a tendency to whine and cry like a baby and focus on what the college kids on the hardwood don't do rather than the fundamentals of the game. If he is doing the color commentary during a game or at halftime I mute the tv when he speaks hoping Gary Bender saves the day. Louisville unfortunately at the end of the day took a step down in conference power rating since the dismantling of the Big East. Of course the conference looked strong when you had schools like Memphis, Connecticut SMU and the now eliminated Cincinnati who lost this afternoon in a JTG upset 12-5 special to Harvard. I thought they should have received no worse than a 2, however conference cupcakes like USF, Temple, Houston and Rutgers combined with a somewhat weak non-conference schedule may have cost them some. Pitino however will once again be out there to prove the naysayers wrong and defend the Cardinals '13 title. What's frustrating and at the same time satisfying about the first 4 is that it gives teams like Albany and Texas Southern an extra game to win in order to feel like they've accomplished something playing in. Now mid-major conferences more often than not occupy the 14-16 range, but at least they don't have to play until Thursday. Is that however truly a reward? Look at Iowa and Tennessee who were on the bubble for the last month or so. Iowa goes in losing 6 of their last 7 and get knocked down to a double digit seed and another play-in game. Tennessee who plays in the SEC gave Florida all they could handle, but at the same time where's the respect and gratitude? The committee needs to judge the seeding a little more clearly between those smaller schools who end up as 15 and 16 seeds safe during the first week, or those bubble teams earning play-in games as higher seeds. Keep an eye on Stephen F. Austin Friday as they could give #5 VCU all they could handle in another one of my upset specials. The Commodores will be without Melvin Johnson due to a sprained knee. The Lumberjacks' red-hot quintet is led by a dangerous guard trio of Desmond Haymon (14.2 points per game), Thomas Walkup (12.9 points per game, 5.0 rebounds per game) and pg Trey Pinkney. They could force VCU to play at an up tempo pace toe to toe in transition as well as the halfcourt if they can take care of the ball. Shaka Smart may have to release the hounds when it comes to Briante Weber who is a 2 time A-10 Defensive Player of the Year to swtich on man to man and matchup zone assignments. Creighton possesses a legitimate threat in offensive sensation Doug McDermott who averages about 27 ppg and 7 rebounds shooting 87% from the charity stripe and 47% from beyond the arc. Reminds me a lot of Kyle Korver with additional size who also attended Creighton Providence did what they had to do by running right through foes to make it to the big dance, but that only defines how tough it is to win 4 games in 4 days. The Blue Jays could very well be a possible elite 8 selection to enhance your bracket as a sleeper.

Spooky Express Four of the Best Days of the Year March Madness Thoughts -- Check for our plays all weekend long. Come back here to the Spooky Express often to see what we have going. -- 40 years ago this month, Maryland Terrapins were #3 in the country; they lost the ACC championship game in OT to NC State and didn’t even make the NCAA tournament, because back then, only the conference champ made the NCAAs. Terps jogged thru the NIT, winning the title game there by 30+ points and NC State won the national title, but lot has changed since then, for sure. -- Whatever happened to Billy Packer? Guy was all over TV for 35 years, then CBS dumps him and he never resurfaces? I’m thinking this is our loss- there are enough sorry TV guys on the airwaves, Packer deserves a voice on one of these networks, no? -- I’m still waiting for one valid, semi-sensible reason why Louisville is a #4 seed. Anybody got anything? The only thing that stops this team is their depth and bench. -- First Four has turned out to be better than I thought it would; it has kind of a JV/Varsity feel to it, with the 16-seeds playing first, then the better teams playing the nightcap. Think it would be even better if only the top eight at-large teams played, but that’s nitpicking. Actually, the tournament would be better off at 64 teams, with none of the extra stuff, but since they have it, at least they have a format which works pretty well. -- CBS has done a good job putting all the games on regular TV; afternoon card is so spread out you really don’t have to go out to catch just about all the good action. For the night cards, a sports bar is necessary. Plus, CBS Sports Network runs the games back all night, the way ESPN used to in the old days, and that’s a great thing. -- Baseball season starts at 4am Eastern time Friday night/Saturday morning from Australia, when Dodgers-Arizona play. Second game of the series is 10pm Saturday night, or Sunday afternoon in Australia. Lot of stuff going on; things move fast, you have to keep up. -- How are these tournament games going to be officiated? New rules? Old rules? Australian Rules? Holy Cross-Brown CIT game Monday night had total of 10 foul shots, but that was with refs who weren’t trying to impress and move on in the NCAA tournament. Former Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio said on ESPNU Sunday night he thought the new rules this season hurt Duke. Interesting point. If the powers-that-be are hung up on enforcing new rules, there could be games with lot of foul shots being taken. -- When, if ever, will a 1-seed lose to a 16-seed? Not this year; too many upsets in the smaller conference tourneys weakened the bottom of this field. -- VCU’s run to the Final Four legitimized the First Four concept; which of the upper-level First Four teams can make a run this year? -- Providence beat Creighton Saturday night by pushing the Bluejays around inside; Friars have so little depth, can they do the same thing with North Carolina, which has bigger, tougher (if less skilled) guys than Crieghton? -- Friars and St Joe’s are two teams with almost zero depth, but with TV timeouts longer during the NCAA tournament, conditioning should be less of a problem than if refs blow a tight whistle, like they did in the Providence-Seton Hall game Friday. Hawks also play six guys but they’re six pretty good guys. -- Nebraska coach Tim Miles was talking on TV the other night about how he had Texas A&M WR Mike Evans in Lincoln on a basketball recruiting visit and that he was a very good hooper. Am thinking Evans made the right decision choosing football.

Spooky Express March Madness avoiding getting hit in the nuts random thoughts -- Doug McDermott mentioned something interesting Sunday night, about how he has to adjust to a different basketball now that NCAA tourney was starting. Conferences have sponsorship deals with different companies; the NCAA’s basketball deal is with Wilson—don’t think too many leagues use a Wilson ball during the regular season. Shooters care a lot about the right feel of a ball in their hands, so guys like McDermott are using these precious few days before the tournament starts to get used to a new piece of equipment in their toolkit. -- Oddsmakers in Las Vegas mocked the idea of Louisville as a #4-seed, saying Florida/Michigan State are only two teams that would be favored over the Cardinals this month. -- Monday morning’s earthquake in Los Angeles was the strongest one there in twenty years. -- Teddy Bridgewater apparently had a disappointing pro day on his own college campus; how does this happen? Why not throw at the NFL Combine? Now he could conceivably slide out of the first round, which would cost him a small fortune in his first contract. I don’t understand why guys won’t trust their own ability and just throw at the Combine. -- When you see a team like UNLV or Indiana turn down bids to the CBI and CIT, it means pretty much that they had poor team chemistry and the coaches see no value in having the team stay together any longer; they can cut ties with any players they want to get rid of, and work out with the ones they’re moving forward with. In other words, it was a lousy year and the coaches are relieved its over without them getting fired. No one turns down the NIT because the NCAA owns the NIT, but the CBI and CIT are second-rate events and not every program wants to be bothered. -- This bears repeating: college scholarships are one-year, renewable deals. If a coach doesn’t want a player to come back next year, he’ll simply (and mostly quietly) tell the player he’s not going to be welcome back next year, and either find the kid a place to transfer to, or wish him well with his education and move on while the kid is on his own for his next step. Coaches get fired for losing, after all, so they’re not going to keep kids around who they think are hindering the process, whether that is fair or unfair. At the end of the day, it is a big-money business. -- The 4-seeds are better than the 3-seeds, and I mean Michigan State and Louisville, especially. Manhattan coach Steve Masiello played/coached for Rick Pitino; Jaspers have to be disappointed in drawing the Cardinals. -- Louisville as a 4-seed, no SMU at all; guess the committee wasn't too fond of the new AAC. Wait until next year, with Louisville gone and a bunch of teams coming in from C-USA- they really won't like the league then. -- SMU's non-conference strength of schedule: #302 out of 351. -- Last four times Duke has been to the Final Four, they were a #1 seed (they've only been to Final Four once in last nine years). Last time Duke made the Final Four without being a #1 seed? 1994. -- Mercer is #5 in country in experience; they won at Ole Miss, lost by 3 at Texas. Duke isn't a great defensive team; remember, Vermont was 31-41 inside arc against them Nov 24. Mercer plays in the same league as Florida Gulf Coast, who made the Sweet 16 last year. I'm just sayin'....... -- Last two years, three #2 seeds lost in first round, after being 40-0 in the ten years before that. -- You can bet the under on American-Wisconsin. Final score of Patriot League final was 55-36. Will be a low possession game. American's last two games had 53-56 possessions, like watching paint dry. -- Oddity: In the last 15 years, a #4 seed got beat in first round 14 times, but the last time the East's #4-seed lost in first round was 1991. Michigan State is the East's #4 seed this year. -- I'll pick a Final Four now, and reserve the right to change my mind: Michigan State-Florida-Louisville-Arizona This...this is a mess. In the second inning of today's Reds-Indians game, Brandon Phillips uncorked a rocket right into umpire Brad Myers's dick. Myers tried to jump out of the way and instead positioned his dick right in the line of fire. He would remain on the ground for some time as both Cleveland and Cincinnati trainers checked him out.

I was looking this one over, and read it elsewhere are well but Michigan, Louisville and Wichita St all in the same bracket to me sucks, would have like to break those teams up. Or even place 1 of those 3 outside of the bracket. I guess it shows the committee does not want to see more then one of those make the final 4

Well Saturday is a big day on the way to Derby Trail and this weekend it is at Oaklawn Park with 3 graded stakes races. Race 8 Azeri Stakes Grade 2 Close Hatches is the best horse in this field. Talent, breeding you name it. This horse is 7 of 8 in money with 5 wins and 2 seconds. My only concern is this is the first time out in 2014 and will she come out firing. Even if she does not run her best race she can still win, she is that good. DONT TELL SOPHIA has two wins on this track this year and looks to be in peak form. Tough race, I don't see much money to be made with 3 horses being favorites. Not a great betting race, but I will take a chance the CLOSE HATCHES is out for a prep race. She may go off at 8/5 or 4/5. You have to play to beat her. I am going to use the 3 horse, DIXIE STRIKE in exotics with DONT TELL SOPHIA and CLOSE HATCHES. DIXIE STRIKE is a huge closer and if a speed duel happens up front this horse may pick up the pieces with DONT TELL SOPHIA in the stretch. RACE 9 RAZORBACK HANDICAP I will make this simple.........Taking GOVERNOR CHARLIE to win. Baffert sends this horse cross county after the removal of one of Pletchers horses. He must think this horse rates well to do this. He has ran once this year and came in 2nd. I think that was a prep race off the lay off for a graded stakes and Baffert chose this one. GOVERNOR CHARLIE over ALL exacta and to win. RACE 10 REBEL STAKES Big prep race for Derby hopefuls. I think this race comes down to two horses TAPITURE and STRONG MANDATE. These two to me look like the best horses in the field and I see them finishing 1-2. To throw a horse in here that could add some money to exotics is the 2 horse RIDE ON CURLIN. He is getting weight from both horses and Desormeaux is on board who may try to sneak this horse out front and steal race. exacta box on TAPITURE/STRONG MANDATE TRIPLE TAPITURE/STRONG MANDATE over STRONG MANDATE, TAPITURE over RIDE ON CURLIN triple RIDE ON CURLIN, over STRONG MANDATE- TAPITURE over STRONG MANDATE TAPITURE try super of STRONG MANDATE/TAPITURE over STRONG MANDATE/TAPITURE over RIDE ON CURLIN over ALL these are my choices. if you chose to follow good luck. PS heading to vegas next week for opening round of NCAA tourney. Looking for the best sports book to watch and wager.

Spooky's Best Bench Celebrations anywhere Tuesday Championship Week Random Thoughts Express -- The Colby College basketball team is probably not a thing that the residents of Waterville, Maine, need to go out of their way to see in action. It's Division III basketball, after all. The team's bench, on the other hand, is worth the price of admission. Colby's bench mob has spent the season celebrating baskets with a series of choreographed routines, and they are all splendid. The fact that they do this in a nearly empty gym just makes the performances all the better. These guys are committed to their craft. See the video below. -- I'm sure most sports fans hadn't heard of Patrick Reed before last weekend. Maybe they still haven't. But the kid has set the golf world abuzz by winning three tournaments by the age of 23. Only the "one-name" golfers have done that: Tiger, Phil, Rory and Sergio. Reed was asked about his game and he said he considered himself one of the top 5 golfers in the world. At first blush you have to do a double-take. Huh? Patrick Reed? A little self-indulgent, no? At second glance good for him. Golf is the ultimate individual competition. If he doesn't believe in himself, who will? -- Last night's Dallas/Columbus hockey game was postponed midway through the first period when Dallas center Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench. Doctors successfully treated him for a heart incident. -- NFL free agents can be signed today at 4pm Eastern. -- Hey mushers! Dallas Seavey won his second Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. -- Louisville is in midst of 3-year stretch where they’ll play in three leagues (Big East/AAC/ACC). If they win AAC tourney in Memphis this week, they could win ACC tourney next year and win three different conference tournaments in three years. Doubt that has happened before. -- UCLA is 2-3 in its last five games, lost by 18 at Washington State, suspended its two best players for a game and appear to be a ship taking on water. It bears repeating that in his career, Steve Alford hasn’t always been the best March coach, getting upset in a 3-14 game in NCAA tournament, and losing to Harvard last year. -- Syracuse got Jerami Grant back Sunday and won by 16 at Florida State, so his presence could’ve healed whatever it was (lack of scoring) that ailed them. We’ll learn more this weekend. -- Virginia had eight days off after its Senior Night win over Syracuse, an emotional game, then they laid an egg at Maryland. Cavaliers need to win a game in ACC tourney—it’s a red flag to go into the tournament off two straight losses. -- Cal-Irvine—Anteaters have never been to NCAAs, but are #1 seed in Big West; this is their time. That brings some pressure with it. UCSB, Long Beach, Hawai’I will be their main challengers in Anaheim. -- San Diego State-New Mexico are both in NCAAs, so if someone other than those two wins the Mountain West, they’re bursting someone’s bubble. Aztecs rallied back from 16 down to beat New Mexico Saturday; a third game for the MW title late Saturday would be fun. -- Meanwhile a couple miles away at Orleans Arena, if Utah Valley-New Mexico State hook up in the WAC final, they might need extra security, seeing as the two teams nearly had a riot after their game couple weeks ago. If nothing else, have to see if the Utah Valley coach breaks out that neon green sports jacket again; I’m not sure if Craig Sager would even wear it, that’s how bright it is. -- Buffalo—Bulls fired Reggie Witherspoon last year because he never made NCAAs; he won a decent amount of games, just not enough in March. Now Bobby Hurley has Buffalo as a high seed in the MAC; can he do what Witherspoon couldn’t and take the Bulls dancing in his first year as coach? -- Atlantic 13 moved their tournament to Brooklyn; they have lot of good teams, but St Joe’s/Saint Louis have struggled of late, Richmond lost its PG, which leaves fast-paced VCU/UMass as top contenders. This league is going to have several teams in the Field of 68, should be a good tournament at the Barclays’ Center.
