Two Unit (7-7)(-1.40)
Three Unit (6-2)(+11.40)
Five Unit (0-0)(even)
OVERALL SEASON (38-36)(+5.30)
0-3 dropping 6.60 units yesterday. Worst day of the season so far at least in terms of units lost. What kills me is my three unit play was at 8.5 when I first saw it. I fell asleep and it dropped to 5.5. Should have had another winner. I never thought the line would drop that much. Anyway, enough crying………..here are Tuesday’s Selections.
Ball State +15.5 vs Purdue (three units)………I don’t think there is any special about either of these two teams this year and I think they are more evenly matched than most think. Home court the big advantage for Purdue, but not worth this many points. This is a rivalry game, so I expect it to be single digits.
Jacksonville St +7 vs Nebraska (three units)……….Very strange line to me. A small team like Jax St only getting seven at Nebraska. That tells me this game is going to be close and an upset would not shock me. Jax St won five straight, while the Boilermakers have lost two, so even momentum favors the dog here. I like it.
Illinois-Chicago +1 vs W Illinois (two units)………….This game did peak my interest and then I saw some good cappers on it as well. Despite both have good record and it is a road game, I feel ICU is just the better team. They have played great defense this year and I think they win a tight, low scoring game. Better teams find a way to win and they have won three of four on the road this year as well.
Tenn Tech +9 vs Auburn (two units)…………..Another line that feels strange to me, similar to the Jax St/Nebraska game. Auburn nothing special this year for an SEC team. Auburn has not rolled over these smaller conference schools this year and I don’t expect it to happen tonight.
W Kentucky +16.5 vs Virg Comm (one unit)……………I was going to make this a bigger play, but WKU has some key players out tonight and that may hurt them, but I still like my chances with this many points.
Stanford +7.5 vs NC State (one unit)…………..Let me start by saying that I am a NC State fan. I think they have a really good team and I think come March they will be really, really good. But for now something just does not feel right to me about them. I don’t think they are capable of beating teams very badly unless they really suck and Stanford is not that bad. Should be a tight one.
Have leans toward Richmond and Miami-Florida but not touching them so of course they will probably both win.
Good Luck Everybody!!
