Two Unit Plays (1-0)(+2.00 units)
Three Unit Plays (0-0)(even units)
Overall Record (12-4)(+8.60 units)
Split my 2 one unit plays, but won my first two unit play last night with Long Beach State an outright winner.
Got some afternoon games today and I am off work. Not in love with these two, but I do like them.
Iona +4½ vs. Purdue (one unit)……….Anytime you see a no name team vs. a big name team and the line is low it makes you wonder. After further review Iona went 25-12 last year and went to the championship game in one of those post season tournaments last year. They have much of that team back. I like betting teams who had success and lost a championship game the previous year. They got a taste of winning and want more. Purdue did not look good in their last game and don’t appear ready to start the season. I will take the smaller team, plus only a couple of buckets vs. the Big Ten big named team.
LSU +8 vs. Northwestern (one unit)………….LSU looked horrible, while Northwestern looked pretty good in the most recent games and I think that is why this line is so high. I look for a typical Northwestern type of game where defense rules and offense is conservative. If I am right eight points should come into play. I also like taking the SEC over the Big Ten.
Back late this afternoon or early evening with some evening action.
Good Luck Everybody!!
