Here we are at the end of the month. March has been very good to us so far, and I expect that to continue today with what I'm seeing. Let's get to work.
COLLEGE HOOPS (4-0 ATS/4-0 SU/1-3 TOTALS last night and 19-17/18-16/19-17 so far for the week)
The Madness (4-0/4-0/1-3 last night and 11-5/11-4/8-8 so far for the week)
BUTTA (no play last night and 1-1 so far for the week)
Syracuse (-200) over Marquette - I don't particularly care for the number hung on The Orange for this game between familiar Big East rivals, but Marquette has been leading a charmed life so far in this tournament. The 'Cuse is firing on all cylinders right now, while Marquette has played mostly in fits and spurts. The Orange might have a battle on their hands, but they'll advance to Atlanta.
ALL THE REST
1. Syracuse (-5, U128) 64, Marquette 56
2. Wichita St. (+4 1/2, O131) 76, Ohio St. 72
The CIT (2-5 ATS/SU/TOTALS so far for the week)
BUTTA (1-0 so far for the week)
N. IOWA (-4, O137) 80, Weber St. 75 - I still think Weber is the beast of this tourney, but this will be their 1st game away from home in it. The play is not on the side though. I'm going with an OVER play as neither of these teams have any trouble scoring and continually get into the 70s offensively.
ALL THE REST
E. CAROLINA (+1 1/2, U151 1/2) 63, Evansville 60
THE NBA (4-7 ATS/7-4 SU/9-2 TOTALS last night and 22-23/28-17/26-19 so far for the week)
BUTTA (0-1 last night and 1-2 so far for the week)
Lots of tired teams out there on today's schedule will keep me from getting involved with what would otherwise be some good opportunities. We've got the Clippers and Wolves playing their 4th game in 5 nights, the Hawks and Jazz working for the 5th time in 7 nights and the real shame of it all is that the Griz and Pacers will be lacing'em up for the 6th time in 9 nights. It's those last 2 that really intrigue me, but the fatigue factor won't allow me to move on the clearly superior teams.
ALL THE REST
1. MAVS 98, Bulls (+4, O192) 94
2. HAWKS (-12, O203 1/2) 114, Magic 101
3. 76ERS (-10 1/2, U194) 107, Bobcats 79
4. ROCKETS (-1 1/2, U205 1/2) 100, Clippers 97
5. WOLVES (+4 1/2, O186 1/2) 99, Grizzlies 90
6. BUCKS (+6, U207) 104, Thunder 100
7. JAZZ (-5, U192 1/2) 99, Nets 89
8. Pacers (-10, O187) 113, SUNS 83
9. KINGS (-1 1/2, O217 1/2) 122, Lakers 104
10. Blazers (+9, U202 1/2) 103, WARRIORS 99
Quick and easy for a Saturday. Gotta love that! Have a great day, be careful out there and I'll see you all tomorrow.
