Money's Wednesday Plays

B. Anthony makes it look so easy. He throws out a bunch of games, and he was been right more often than not. At one point last night, it appeared that he was going to go 6 for 6, but New Mexico completely tanked and blew a double digit lead, to not only lose out on the cover, but the game too. Miss state should have covered as well, but made a few mental mistakes to keep the game in tact but screw the line.

With that, I give you my 8 picks for the evening. Based on my wife, Penny, and her success I have become a fan of the 8 team parlay.

I still love a good halftime bet and there were many to be had last night. Notre Dame down 7 at half playing at home was a lay-up. The savvy gambler noticed the 10-2 run that Ohio state put together at the end of the half to turn a blowout into a 13 point halftime deficit, which they quickly got down to 2 points. The second half OSU line was never in doubt. Pay close attention at 5pm and 7pm and get ready to jump on the good halftime bets, and by that I mean big favorites playing at home that are down at halftime by more 4-5 points. Vegas is rarely off by a lot when pickng lines for the game. Consider that MSU was up 21 points at one point and could do no wrong, but failed to cover the game spread of -8.5 eventually winning by just 6 points.

FLORIDA STATE +5.5 vs. Duke
B. Anthony is not a fan of this pick, but I like it. They both have athletes, but I think the home court will make the 3 point shot easier to hit for FSU.

MASSACUSETTS +6.5 @ Dayton
I will take the team that has 3 great players (UMass) versus the team with 1 (Dayton)

THE DRAKE -3 @ Bradley
Yes, THE DRAKE’s leading scorer is sidelined with a bad ankle, but that did not stop them in their last game. Keep riding this team to the sweet 16.

MISSOURI -5.5 @ Iowa state
The Tigers are playing with a lot of confidence and are the far superior team in this game.

FLORIDA +6 @ Mississippi
The gators getting points? This is unheard of. They still have talent, albeit young. This will be a backdoor cover as Ole’ Miss can’t close games out.

SOUTH ALABAMA -16 vs. Fla International
A surprisingly very good team playing against one of the worst.

DEPAUL +10.5 @ Villanova
There is no way Nova should be favored by double digits over anyone in the Big East. DePaul beat them once before and they may do it again.

TEXAS A&M -5 @ Bobby Knight
Knight will be going for win 900. It won't happen tonite. The aggies are one of the best kept secrets in the nation.
