Took the day off yesterday to focus on big card today. Lost my POY with Murray St as my angle didn't play out. Short write ups today as I"m limited on time.
W. Virg -2.5 -1u: Even with WV struggles at the foul line, I still think this team is strong enough defensively and on the boards to cover this vs. an average team team at home.
VAlpo +5 -1u: Let down game for Loyola coming off tough close loss to Butler. I just like Valpo's ability to score the ball and I believe Loyola will struggle to score in league play. 5pts too much.
Utah St. +8.5 -1u: This Gtown team is ripe for a let down. Their defense was awful vs. Mizzou. Utah St. will play intense team defense and compete for every loose ball and rebound. Give me the team that absolutely has to have a big win.
Murray St. +3.5 -1.5u: I continue to have faith in the Racers in league play. Rivalry game and I think it's a one possession game and Murry St. finds ways to win in conference.
Zags +2 -1u: Illinois has to travel cross country and will meet a hungry Zags team looking for a big win.
Duke -14.5 -1.5u: This is a complete mismatch. Butler does not have the athletes to keep this competitive. The only way Butler stays close is if Duke is impatient offensively and jacks up bad early shots. I think they will be focused and execute.
Bonnies -4 -1u: I like this team at home and I do not think Buffalo is well coached at all. Bonnies will stay disciplined and get an easy win.
