First post of the season.  I've been laying back a bit and trying to watch as much as I can to get a good feel.  I've typically done well early season non-conference capping but we'll see.

Kansas -12 1u - Jayhawks showed some regression following the big match-up with Michigan St which was to be expected.  I expect them to bounce back tonight and I think they will overwhelm Wash St.

Georgetown +7 1u- I've not been impressed with UCLA.  They still seem undisciplined to me and I think G'town will get great shots if they run their Princeton offense effectively.  I do believe Otto Porter will play but even without I'll take the 7.

Texas A&M +2 1u- Finally, A&M has some perimeter players that can score.  I like their experience on the inside as well and I think St. Louis is a fade until they get their best player back.

Duques -7 1u- This is more a fade of James Madison then anything else.  They are not a good team and Duques will play hard nosed defense and get better shots.

Marquette -4 1u- Better athletes on the smaller court in Maui, and Butler has not figured out how they will score yet and their typically stout defense is a step behind early in the year.  I hate to go against Brad Stevens b/c he's one of the best but Marquette similar to Xavier, will have too many athletes.

Adding:

IU/Georgia O134.5 1u- IU playing at a fast tempo and Georgia will oblige to play quickly.  This # is low b/c Georgia can't score and I get that but I see IU definitely scoring in the mid 70's in this one so I'll take my chances that Georgia can get their average which is around 60..
