0-1 Monday after getting a little trigger happy w/ Georgia in-game.
I have strong lean on Lobos, but don't want to deal with 2AM game. Also have Steelers -2.5 as last leg of my teaser and Chiefs +14 side that might hit a nice middle for me
also like USC
Work is seriously killing my capping time. Sorry for lack of write-ups
Like Northeastern tomorrow. Young Huskies put on a so-so season in CAA last year, but return 4 best players from last yr's team. They lost to Princeton by 9 last year on their home floor, so they're playing a familiar opponent. Princeton was 4th in Ivy in terms of tempo, but still relatively slow at 266th in adjusted tempo. Northeastern wasn't far off at 245th. (Slow pace helps cover a big #; less possessions.) NE only lost 3 games by >10 points after 12/22/2011 last year after starting the season 3-7 on a brutal non-conference schedule. Also potential look-aheads for Princeton w/ Rutgers and Syracuse on deck w/in following week...? NE also had extra day to prep, but I'm not putting any emphasis on a spot play here.
Breaks my heart to see Temple w/out Fernandez and Moore but the reality is they've still got plenty of pieces. Might take time to gel but I think Wyatt & Hollis-Jefferson will step up and others will step in. Easy for me to lay the chalk here against a Kent State team with 4 freshman, 5 sophs, 3 transfers; only 2 players who saw significant minutes. Esp. after they already played Friday in a big overachieving win over Drexel in OT. Fran Dunphy is one of my favorite coaches --- very, Very good at getting his team prepped and composed on the road.
Not really fading San Jose St., as bad as they are. They actually have a decently-touted recruiting class. But Houston really showed some sparkle to close the year last year and I think they will surprise in C-USA.
Lean FAU +5.5
