Hey everyone. Theres a ton of reasons to look good and hard at the favorites for the next 2 days.
1. The dogs have been doing so phenomenal that the public is now ready to concede and get on the dog wagon. They zig, you zag.
2. Loyalty. If youve been riding teams like Miami or NC state the past few days its incredibly hard to not to keep riding them, especially if theyre getting even more points than the days before. This creates some value on the favorite. Or youve been crushed by a dog for 3 days in a row and now will try to jump on them and get it all back. Too late
3. Depth can now become a real issue.Chances are the fave has more ( an overly simple statement I know but you get the idea.)
4. Most important is pressure. These bubble teams know they have to play close to a perfect game or no going to the dance. The big faves have their seeds virtually locked up. They can let it all hang out. They probably didnt care much at the beginning if they got knocked out , but now with only one game (some teams 2) to go they see the finish line and want to climb that ladder and cut those nets. The dogs are going to come out tentative and tight and i'm ready for some blowouts!
All the lines arent out but early leans would be :
Kansas, Georgia tech, Purdue, Vandy, Utep, Temple.
GL to everyone...
