I made a decision to take Syracuse +6 tonight against the Badgers. I think Syracuse will find a way to win and move on tonight but just in case this 1st ranked 52.9 OPPG the Badgers own comes to life and they shoot a high percentage I will take the points for a somewhat cushion. I personally cannot see the Orange losing by this much. Opinions??

I added points to the original spread for a somewhat cushion.

While I agree that Syracuse will not lose by more than 6 points, you're laying what, close to -400 juice? If you think Syracuse wins the game, why not take the ML?

You're probably right...but buying 9 points and probably at about -800 is never very good money management....we all want as many points as we can get...but at what price?

BravesFan1984 for some reason I lose everytimeI take a low spread that is favored and they wind up losing the game by a small number between 2 and 4. I took Memphis over St. Louis and they lost by 7 but was favored to win SU.

I understand what you guys are saying and I agree 100% but my gut told me this is gonna be a close game and might even come down to free throws.

You may have a point KartierEnt. Betting against Cuse would be a huge mistake on my end even with Melo out.

I orginally picked +13 for the Badgers but I decided not to bet against Cuse all together even though I do not think they will win by 13 or more. I made my pick off of the experience I have had with spreads and the way they set up these points for big games like this.

 I will buy 1 PT max every now and the when I get that "gut feeling"
but 9........Remember juice is the enemy.......Juice is why a lot of people on this board have a real job....If it wasnt for juice a lot of good cappers could do this for a living. How much did the 9 points cost you?...................Also think about a 10 point 3 team teaser if you have not already made the bet.    BOL Kid

This is the most absurd thread ever.  Why would you post a pick buying 9 points?
