Some horrible displays of offensive basketball yesterday in the college game. One definitely worked in my favor as Marquette couldn't do anything right against Syracuse. In the other, both Weber St. and N. Iowa went deathly cold in the 2nd half of their game, and that cost me. Those 2 teams combined for 69 points in the 1st half of their game, and that should have had us on easy street. In case you haven't noticed, the way things go with the kids is that the majority of the time, 2nd half scoring usually far outdistances that taking place in the 1st half. It was not to be in my 2nd game of the day though, so we finish the month of March off with a split.
It was still a good month, regardless of what happened yesterday. Saturday's 1-1 left me at 6-3 (5-1 with college hoops and 1-2 in the NBA) for the week. After putting that with the previous 3 weeks of the month, we finished with an impressive and profitable 28-17 (20-10 with college hoops and 8-7 in the NBA). Hard to believe, but we now move into the 2nd quarter of the year starting today. Let's get down to business.
THE NBA (3-7 ATS/6-4 SU/4-6 TOTALS last night, 25-30/34-21/30-25 for the week and 112-103/139-72/119-96 for the month)
BUTTA (no play last night, 1-2 for the week and 8-7 for the month)
Heat (+1 1/2, O197 1/2) 100, SPURS 98 - The Champs suffered no hangover from losing their streak in their last game against the Hornets. Regardless, the Spurs might be behind the 8-ball tonight either way. This is being billed as a potential finals preview, and the Heat are all about putting their best foot forward against teams that are perceived as threats to their throne.
ALL THE REST
1. WIZARDS (-3 1/2, O192) 117, Raptors 89
2. HORNETS (-6 1/2, U192) 100, Cavs 88
3. BULLS 100, Pistons (+8 1/2, O186) 94
4. KNICKS (-7, O196) 108, Celtics 93
COLLEGE HOOPS (3-1 ATS/SU/TOTALS yesterday, 22-18/21-17/22-18 for the week and 200-167/214-136/191-176 for the month)
BUTTA (1-1 yesterday, 5-2 for the week and 20-10 for the month)
Louisville (-195) over Duke - The number on this game has climbed all the way to The Ville (-4). The Cardinals are the class of the field that's left now, but I don't want to risk the push with the "whole number". I'll take the eventual champions of The Madness just to win the game outright.
ALL THE REST
1. Florida 66, Michigan (+3, U134) 64
2. Louisville (-4, U138) 73, Duke 64
I hope everyone has had a glorious and blessed Easter Sunday so far. Be careful in your travels today, and I'll talk to you all again tomorrow.
