NCAA Hoops, The Real Deal

B. Anthony is so glad to have a real sport available just about everyday. The short venture into the NBA makes me remember that this game is solely about entertainment. However, keep your eyes out for a rested Celtics team. If they ever have 2 days off between games, they will cover. It will be fun to watch this team, if no injuries occur.

Now to college hoops. The 5 * locks were a good start, and I will do a better job posting the opponent as some people may fear my picks when I only list the pick. Michael Beasley is as good as advertised. It was very disappointing to see ESPN bottom line listing OJ Majo's 32 point performance, and not mentioning that USC lost to Mercer!!!!

Tonight their are some games to be had out there, and I will go out on a limb and pick some teams I generally don't like, and also some pretty obscure teams.

4* plays

Duke -17 vs New Mexico St.- Simply a mismatch, Duke is playing with a lot of confidence, and they like to cover when the can. Singler will get 25 and Henderson will get 24. Big win 102-76. This line has been moving, but anything under 18.5 is a good play.

Appalachian State +2.5 vs NC Charlotte. To most of you this would seem like a mismatch but App. State is not just a good football school. They should have been dancing last year, and will likely dance this year. This is a classic trap game, the average player thinks UNC Charlotte at home wins this game every time, why is the line so low. The reason is, APP State is a better team. They will win outright, maybe by double digits!

3* Plays

Oregon -16 vs Western Michigan. Oregon is very good at blowing teams out in the early season. The Pac-10 is loaded and this preseason will prove it. Get on the Pac 10 before lines start to really move.
Wisconsin Green Bay +15.5 vs Ohio State- Buckeyes are still reeling. They may be down at halftime before they get things going to win by about 10 points. Take Wisconsin Green Bay.

Obscure play of the day!

Arkansas Little Rock +2 vs Loyola Marymount- Sorry WCC you are not doing any favors to your RPI Rankings. Only Gonzaga and St. Mary's are true division one programs. Arkansas Little Rock, home of Derek Fischer, will have some strong guard play that will be too much

Ratings Watch
Play UCLA -28.5 vs Youngstown State. This is too big of a mismatch. I will play against Youngstown State all year. They will lose by 20+ at least 12 times this year. Tonight it will be 102-56. Enjoy.

B. Anthony
