He had 1 more win to get to reach 17 for the $1000 and he takes the under in the UConn/Cinncy game...makes no sense

second guessing after the fact in a game that took overtime to go over (was at 110 at the end of regulation)?

great run spandum. sometimes the cards just fall the wrong way, it was a very solid pick

the under made a lot of sense for that game...but not as a streak pick, thus the bad beat overtime...

  PLEASE take you head out of your behind WB, I made the same pick and we both got screwed. FIRST Napier made a layup with 43 seconds left to tie the game at 55-55, then Cincinnati had a turnover by Wright with 33 seconds left, and then Napier their best player missed a layup ( very fishy ) with 3 seconds left to send it into overtime, SECOND they scored a total of 39 points in 20 minutes of the second half (less then 2 points a minute) and go on to score 29 points in a 5 minute overtime.

And they scored 71 in the first half, so horrendous second half shooting is what even kept it close.... Shoulda been a blow out...

THAT'S 3.5 points per minute,which is pretty much what the average is, not 6 points a minute like in overtime, should have been an under !

How do you figure?  The point is that anything can happen.  They scored 71 in the first half, which "should" have been an easy over, then they laid bricks the entire 2nd half to make a "should" be under.  Then, OT hit and they were on fire again.  That's why you don't take Over/Under.. OT can kill you!
