Hoops Galore

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!!! This is the real kick off of hoops season, and we are noticing some great trends!

A great Wednesday night has us back on track. Let me mention a few teams that have been proving to be solid early season plays!

Air Force- Their commitment to executing their offense has led them to many early season covers with their 5-0 start. I should have stayed on them after they were an early season lock. I will be back on them today.

Indiana- Eric Gordon has the same refuse to lose attitude that UMASS had 10 years ago. Indiana will win a lot of games!

Washington State has continued to dominate. Their line tonight is 31.5, and they will cover that as well.

Michael Beasley is awesome, but his supporting cast is letting me down. Keep a close eye on this team either making some changes or having a rough spot in league!

Today's Winners:

Air Force +1 vs Montana- This should be a close game on paper, but no one plays early season ball like the Eagles. Easy Cover 66-56.

Indiana -2 vs Xavier- In the past I would say that Xavier had a lot to prove and would pull this off, but the Hoosiers are playing great defense and Gordon makes the defense with his offensive efficiency. He is shooting over 60% from the field!

Washington St -31.5 vs Mississippi Valley State- Books cant make this line high enough. They are trying to scare us with more than 30 point line, but when it is 44-12 at halftime, you will know why this line was so high!

Three more to keep you moving forward!

Texas +5.5 vs Tennessee. Talent laden floor tonight in Tennessee. I expect a close one at the end, DJ Augustine will make some big buckets to cover this line!

BYU + 7 vs North Carolina- The win of Louisville with bolster their confidence. UNC doesn't do enough to cover this number and may be knocked off outright. What do you think the Kids from BYU did last night in Vegas? In contrast, you think Roy Williams had a curfew for his guys!? First Half BYU is a lock!

VCU -13.5 vs Elon College- VCU won't let me down again. Lay the points!

Good Luck,

B. Anthony
