Congrats on yesterday. Like the Maryland play as well and your lean towards Mich St. Michigan even if they make there 3's and Burke can drive Mich St. is much more battle tested from there schedule this year. I know Mich has success at home but we have seen that this year anything can happen. Mich St will always pound the glass and feel there bigs will have a field day both offensively and defensively.

If you have time today, I realize school started could you please look at the over in the Purdue -Iowa game as I think Iowa is a very athletic team and should be able to score as this year Purdue doesnt have the defensive team they have had in the past. Iowa not the best at defense also.

I took Maryland, nice to see you on it too. NW's 1-3-1 gave MSU fits, I expect the same from Michigan.

Enough with the 1-3-1 talk.  I have read this in a couple other places as well.  State got caught in a bad spot against NW looking ahead to little sister tonight.  It was not the 1-3-1.  We have beat NW behind the last decade playing that same 1-3-1.  State missed shots and NW played great...State will be ready to play tonight and will take advantage of Mich in the paint.  If Mich hits their 3's it's a toss up game.  I will gladly take the points and roll with the proven coach and program.  State by 5..

If you're betting on Mich State, you're not taking any points. They're favored.

Michigan State shot 46% from the field, and 50% from beyond the arc against that 1-3-1 that gave it "fits".

Top 5 you are correct.  I got it earlier at pk but thought it moved to +1 but you are correct its -1...either way I think MSU wins.

I never said Michigan would win, just another aspect to consider.

Sorry, maybe "fits" was the wrong word to use, but when NW was able to slow down MSU and make them play a half court game, they didn't look comfortable.

Georgetown @ DePaul +9 (1 unit)
Love the spot as the Hoyas play a second consecutive roadie in the midst of the easiest portion of their Big East schedule. DePaul has lost 3 straight, but all have come on the road and, like most young teams, DePaul has looked vastly better on its home floor. Should be a great crowd tonight in Chicago and DePaul's frenetic style could catch Georgetown sleeping. I Wouldn't be remotely surprised by an outright upset.

State won at Wisconsin and it doesn't get any slower than that so State can win a half court game.  Again if you watched the game it was more about state not being ready to play and got caught in a bad spot with Mich on deck. The same could be said for Mich at Iowa I'm sure. I think there is some value in state to win but if you go with the home team + points in the big ten thats never a bad decision.  Good luck with whatever you do.

Wednesday add:

SJU @ Xavier -6 (1 unit)

Leans:
Nebraska +5, Temple -5, Towson +16.5, Central Florida +1.5, Northern Iowa +2.5, Georgia -1.5, Iowa State -7

Shocked to see Tulsa as a 7.5 point favorite. I was anticipating 3 or 4 and was set to make it my largest play of the year.

Thanks, but it's a bad idea to "spot tail." There's no way to anticipate which days are going to be good versus which ones will be bad.

hey JFen, respect your opinions on games and congrats on your season so far, you have any feel for the boise st and colorado st game?  It seems like Colorado St should be able to cover this easy with Boise St road performances this year, but the line just seems fishy.  I know Colorado St has a game coming up Wyoming but any thoughts would be appreciated

It will be interesting to see the consensus numbers on that play. I still think anything under double digits is a very good play.
