Nice night a few nights back cashing in the Long Beach ML, and baring 2 louzy quarters from the Clippers I would have cashed that ML against the Knicks.
So for Monday...injuries factor big tonight.
*This team is pretty lousy offensively at times, but I don't think South Carolina should be laying this many points to anybody right now. Until Holmes & Archie come back I'd stay far away from backing SC...as Downey can't do it all.
Appalachian St +14.5
*So we have 2 similar teams defensively, and App St shoots better from the charity stripe....3pt land and rebound the ball better. Now take away both Johnson's for Dayton as both are doubtful (20ppg & 10rpg combined) that's a lot to make up for. With those 2 guys they've had trouble beating mid-level competition by DD's.
Fresno St +5
*Backed them succesfully against BYU a few back, they rebound the ball well and play solid defense allowing 38% on the year. IF they have a decent night from the charity stripe they can steal this roady. Montana St is solid, but I hate backing teams that shoot nearly 1/2 of their shots from deep.
*Another case of the injury bug here for Santa Clara as their best scorer Foster is out. Which leaves Dowdell & Trasolini with too much to do. They met early in the season on Pacific's home-court and Pacific proceeded to roll them in an 84-57 route... [More]

Well I'm always around these forums, but time to get this bitch started off right. Plenty of games from Thursday-Monday with college n nfl games...narrowing down a solid teaser should be relatively easy. All leans right now, will post final card as soon as I place it....7pter as of now
NC State +2
*Lets face it, the Spurrier experience hasn't worked out. They have an okay QB with Garcia...but he's turnover prone. They return only 4 starters on offense and were 107th in turnover margin. I'd like to see a lower number when going on the road to face this Wolfpack squad looking for revenge and Wilson was rock solid all year
Oregon/Boise UN 71
*Going to the smurf turf is never easy, and I'd think it would take a couple drives for the Ducks to get acclimated and with a total this high...1 slow quarter is all we need. Something to look at...yes Boise went to Oregon last year and won, but they had a 24pt 2nd quarter and Oregon threw in a 19pt 4th quarter to make it respectable. Go a little deeper, of that game BSU loses it's top 3 receivers (10 catches, 242yds) from that game and leading rusher (19att for 40yds)
*Troy is always at the top of the Sun Belt they have a solid defense and have no issues scoring points. BG on the other hand does own a potent offense, but have new faces everywhere on defense. Shootout is their only option to win..and I think Troy will stop them enough to take this.... [More]
