Tooth And Nail

It was like pulling teeth trying to get Seton Hall through last night, but it all worked out. Let me dispel a common myth out there: There is no such thing as an "ugly" win. It's just not possible. And with that, we've got to hump hard on Hump Day with one of the games on today's schedule already underway.

 

 

THE NBA (5-3 ATS/SU/TOTALS last night and 13-9/13-9/14-8 so far for the week)

 

 

BUTTA (1-0 last night and 1-1 so far for the week)

CLIPPERS (-255) over Grizzies - Both teams are rolling. I don't like the (-6 1/2) hung on the Clips for this game, but I do like the fact that they're rested, while the Griz are on the b2b and off a grinder of a game last night.

 

 

ALL THE REST

1. Heat 97, 76ERS (+9, U196) 90

2. WIZARDS (+1, O196) 104, Bucks 100

3. PACERS (-14 1/2, O186 1/2) 105, Wolves 87

4. CELTICS 101, Raptors (+5, O191) 97

5. HAWKS (+1, O203) 111, Lakers 106

6. ROCKETS (-11, O213) 125, Suns 109

7. THUNDER (-12 1/2, U204) 114, Jazz 72

8. KINGS (+3, O197 1/2) 117, Bulls 97

9. NUGGETS (-9, U207 1/2) 97, Knicks 83

10. CLIPPERS 108, Grizzlies (+6 1/2, O186 1/2) 103

11. WARRIORS (-12, U199 1/2) 100, Pistons 83

 

 

COLLEGE HOOPS (3-2 ATS/3-2 SU/5-0 TOTALS last night and 8-9/12-5/11-6 so far for the week)

 

 

BUTTA (1-0 last night and 2-0 so far for the week)

Villanova (-210) over St. John's - Weird things can happen during conference tourneys, and there's just not enough wiggle room between the projection I have for this game and the number posted on The Big Board. However, much better teams than the Johnnies have wilted under that Villanova defense, especially when they put that press on. Give me the Wildcats to win.

 

 

ALL THE REST

1. Texas Tech (+8 1/2, O131) 74, W. Virginia 72

2. Texas (-11, O116) 74, Tcu 59

3. Providence (+3 1/2, U124) 59, Cincinnati 47

4. Syracuse 63, Seton Hall (+13 1/2, U124) 55

5. Villanova (-4 1/2, U124 1/2) 61, St. John's 53

6. Rutgers (+7 1/2, U124 1/2) 62, Notre Dame 47

7. Smu (+2 1/2, O132) 71, Uab 66

8. Houston (-10 1/2, U144) 79, Rice 64

9. Tulane (-3, O141 1/2) 88, Marshall 84

11. Miami-O. (-1 1/2, U113 1/2) 45, E. Michigan 43

12. UNLV (-9 1/2, U134) 61, Air Force 51

13. Fresno St. (+10 1/2, U124 1/2) 61, Colorado St. 58

14. New Mexico (-8 1/2, O116 1/2) 90, Wyoming 63

16. S. Carolina 68, Mississippi St. (+5 1/2, O128) 64

17. Texas A&M (-5 1/2, O119) 65, Auburn 59

18. Stanford (-3 1/2, U133 1/2) 70, Arizona St. 60

21. Washington (-2, U127 1/2) 63, Washington St. 56

 

 

Since we've already got Cincinnati and Providence going and into the 2nd half, I felt it was best to streamline the whole process today to get the information out in time for other games that will be starting in just a little over an hour. Have a great Hump Day, and I'll talk to you tomorrow.
