318-271-12? have to go back and check, that's off the top of my head

First time below 54% in months. Been doing well w/ money management, but cant pick a side to save my life.

Didn’t get to catch the ends of the Idaho/Washington/Oregon/Iowa State/Fullerton games but it looks like they were all awful. Heard Idaho blew a 5 point lead with under 2 to play and Tony Wroten missed 4 huge free throws in the final minute and they blew a big lead. Typical

Avoiding sides and not putting a ton of $ down today cause I’ve been awful. I like these a lot, which means they’ll probably all lose:

Temple/Nevada/MSU ML parlay

Mizzou/St. Louis ML parlay

Kansas/Michigan ML parlay

Duke/UNLV ML parlay

UCSB/Vanderbilt/Memphis ML parlay

Maryland +15.5

Lean Purdue, Marshall, Xavier, NC State, Miami

All parlays are -110 or better. Good luck everyone hope ya have a good day

I usually don't care for ATS trends, but take a look at this article. It seems like Roy Williams hardly cares about the ACC tournament; UNC has been 2-15 ATS in the last 17 ACC tournament games. Tough to go against the Heels right now as they're seemingly putting the pieces together, but this Maryland team is still playing will so much tenacity. Turgeon is a good coach and has had a great first year replacing Williams and he wants a strong outing for their last game. UNC wiped the floor with them last time, but that was on senior night, and Zeller had a career day. Maryland is also poor in away games, but this is a neutral floor and they already played here yesterday.

I like Iowa, I was actually leaning on the side. Matt Gatens is playing so well right now and McCaffrey won't let his team get lazy in this game, even at the end. I like Maryland for the reasons above. 

I don't really like Massachusetts just because I'm so high on this Temple team. But they're starting the game without Wyatt because he was late for study lounge, so maybe UMass can get an early jump. But Temple is so good man. Tall, strong, smart guards; strong interior defense with Eric back inside. Very smart basketball team and very superbly coached. Temple has the experience, they've been here before, and they can win anywhere. They'll win this game I believe, but they're gonna have a hard time dealing with Chaz Williams and I think UMass will stick around. Line looks spot on to me. UMass is prone to bone-headedness and turnovers, but they shoot the ball well enough to stick around. Gonna be a good game. I hope you get it man.

I'm guessing covers not working might have had something to do with some douche clogging the bandwith/servers. I was able to get to the forum for a couple minutes and some guy was starting a million threads and posting them a couple times a minute. I'm guessing a mod banned him. Not sure...

Sloop,  I've been following you ML parlays for sometime now and for the most part they have been money in my pocket.

I'm looking to narrow down one ML play between Missou, Kansas, St. Louis and Michigan.

Which one of these do you feel strongest about?

NC State +3.5

10 of UVA's 16 conference games have been decided by 4 points or less. That's unreal. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not playing this because I think NC State will lose by that margin, but because I believe they'll win straight up. UVA is limping their way into March and things just keep getting worse; they're down to 7 scholarship players now that Sene has been suspended for the season and Harris is out for season with a broken hand. Time and time again, Mike Scott keeps carrying the Hoos on his back and singlehandled edging out wins. They're bad away from home, and now they play the starving Wolfpack...few teams are as desperate as the Pack right now in all of college basketball.

Both of these teams use a 7-man rotation. The difference is that the Pack uses it by choice, and the Hoos use it b/c of the injuries. NC State is incredibly balanced, as they're one of the few teams in the country with 5 (that's FIVE) double digit scorers. Any player has the ability to step up in case someone goes cold. Complete opposite of Scott + UVA. They're going to try to push the pace as much as possible and wear UVA down. They're going to defend Scott and hope for the best. First time they met, NC State outrebounded UVA 40-20, and they lost because UVA shot surprisingly well from 3 land and because NC State (a very good FT shooting team) went just 12/21 from the line. Rebounding should be more equal, but UVA won't shoot as well here. Scott Wood has been very good, going 13/26 from 3 land in his last 3 games, and he enjoys playing away from home b/c he believes there's more intensity. The Pack strives well under pressure, and I think they'll get a defining win today, get a little revenge.

I just don't like what I've seen from UVA at all. They're ugly to watch, and they've overachieved all season long due to an overrated conference and one of the softest non-conference schedules in all of basketball (#311). NC State is bad against strong RPI teams, but UVA is about as incomplete and inconsistent as they get.

John Henson getting X-Rays at half. Came back in for a play and grimaced and went back to the bench. As much as I'd love to win this Maryland bet, never like to see a guy get injured. Hoping he's OK.

Same here. Wished that would have happened to Henson closer to the half. I have NC 1st half -8.5 and maryland +17 for the game.  1st not looking good so far.

Yeah...it's been a little while since my 14-1 streak. For the most part though, they stay pretty consistent. Hopefully we get some today.

Oh man, tough call. I really love all of them. I guess I'd say Kansas is my favorite because they are playing so incredibly well right now and they absolutely destroyed Baylor the first two times around. I'm a little biased though, I love Thomas Robinson. But yeah, Baylor has struggled against the elite Big 12. I don't see them winning. Next I guess I'd say Saint Louis. Majerus is a wizard and they're just too big inside for LaSalle. Anybody who can rebound the basketball will demand steller shooting against LaSalle, and while that's entirely possible, the Billikens are one of the smartest teams in the league and they play very careful ball. I really like their game...

Did not see it. Dirty foul?

A little hole just opened up for Maryland offensively. Henson is their best defensive player. I think it's a joke that Stoglin leads the league in scoring...he's really not THAT good...hopefully he can get it going though for our sake.

I feel like I'm watching 8th graders play against 5th graders when they go up for rebounds. They keep playing hot potato but it always seems to get in the hands of the Heels. They're so damn big.

I DOUBT they'll do it today since it's a neutral location, but Roy Williams has been known to put in his walk-ons at the end of games when it's pretty much over. Maybe that can help at the end.

UNC -5 2h

There's nothing that I hate more than starting the day in a hole, and I have to be conservative w/ the way things have been going lately. Maryland is awful in the 2nd half too. I'll drink the juice. Somehow I got Maryland at -105 for the game, so there's not much to lose.

What a keen observation from Adrian Branch. "Henson blocks a lot of shots with his left hand. His left wrist is the one that's hurt."

Guess that's why they pay him the big bucks...

eh...i really dont like the way florida is playing....bama's had all suspended players back now for 3 full games...enough time to work out the kinks...i'd lean bama. hard to back florida with the way they've been playing, esp. in a neutral location. last time they played was less than 48 hours after the bama players were scratched from the lineup vs LSU. i watched the game; alabama looked SO BAD. florida didnt pull away until the 2nd half, and it was amazing they didn't do it sooner
