Solid plays bro.  UNC is without a win and hungry.  On Marquette.

BOL on your plays. My only thing I see in the Marquette/ND game is that the visting team is 4-1 ATS recently. The line does not though jump out at as a "trap" but not relevant since it does daviddaman24's eyes. I lean towards Marquette too.

Again, BOL!!!


Thanks man, as i've said in previous threads though, these aren't "traps" in my eyes, but rather the eyes of the general public. I look for lines that the public/squares would deem as easy covers and fade them.

Cool. I am going to play both with you small for the heck of it. I think it is time Greensboro may just get that first "W" and this is a good spot. Especially if anyone likes trends

  • Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in NC-Greensboro.
  • Home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
  • Favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
  • Phoenix are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
  • Phoenix are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in NC-Greensboro.

Great picks so far!

I really like the Marquette play.  I was surprised when I saw that line too!

I really wasn't too surprised by the UNC-Greensboro line.  This is their 3rd straight line around this number and they've hit 1 of the past 2 and just missed covering against Chattanooga.  They've also played an obscenely tough schedule so far.

I probably lean Elon in this one.

I also will be backing Marquette in this spot probably...not because it's a weird line or a trap though.

Threads now popping up on the forum. People saying "why is Elon only -4" "I'm betting against a 14 game losing streak" etc etc... 

Folks these are exactly the kinds of gamblers i'm going against here. Gamblers like this lose. Period. Fade them, and their simple mindedness and you'll be fine.

They are the same ones that took DUKE last night! You can't assume that just because a team is good they are always going to cover.

Thanks for your 2 cents and your worldly perspective.

Marquette -3 (Pretty clear fade of Notre Dame here. They come in #15 in the country and 14-2, yet are getting 3 points against an unranked 11-5 Marquette team? I wonder what the public is going to do with this one? I know what i'll be taking. Marquette -3)

UNC Greensboro +3 (Another obvious one here. Elon comes in at 7-8, while Greensboro is 0-14. Yes 0-14. Yet the line is only 3? You only have to lay 3 points against a team that's 0-14? Clearly Elon wins and covers right? Nope. Gimme Greensboro)

Tail, monitor, or hate away... 

GL to you all




  Was going to bet Marquette until Matt Fargo gave them as a free pick. JINX
