2-2(+2.3) on the year


Going chalk on these..


Xavier -6.5(2 units)

As I have posted in another thread I think Xavier is turning the corner and saw it during the 2nd half of the game vs. Lasalle. Yes they lost that game, and were playing some of the worst basketball we have seen from this team in a decade, but they finally started to show some heart and climbed all the back into the game to just fall short. They were still playing horrible basketball but it was the first time I had seen a spark in this team since the incident. They played a little better ball against Fordham and were able to pull out a big victory. I fully expect them to come out and play their best ball of the season tonight. The momentum is about to start rolling and I want to be on the right side of of it until the lines are eventually overvalued later this season. Good time to buy in my opinion


Syracuse -9(2 units)

When this line came out at 9.5 I almost laughed and bet Nova/ML. I have been a diehard Cuse fan since before I can remember and would never bet them in Nova. So I see 9.5 and immediately lean the other way. Then I ended up looking a bit deeper into the line to understand why it came out this way. Nova is bad, really bad. What makes things worse is they don't have anybody who is going to hurt you from the perimeter and gouge the zone like they have in seasons past. Wayns is turnover prone and that is the last thing you want out of your point against this zone. They will get Yarou on the block and try to filter the offense through him, but the development of Melo will even hinder that. I don't know where Nova will get their points from. This is the same team that lost at home to USF by 17! Of course it is Syracuse so 'Nova is going to give it their best shot, but don't think they have nearly enough in the holster..

GL tonight guys
