November: 67-48 (+17.8 units)
December: 52-61 (-7.6 units)
January: 1-2 (-1.1 units)

Main conclusion from Cal-UCLA game is that the Bears will be a different team with Brandon Smith and Kreklow healthy and back in the lineup. Cobbs is better-suited to playing off the ball. Idaho remains grossly undervalued and has been my top moneymaker to this point in the season. Doubt I'll play them Saturday at the Spectrum, though.

Friday:
Iona -13 (1.5 units)
Valpo -8/Memphis +8 -120 (1 unit)

Teaser is Ties Reduce.

I have not laid this type of road chalk in a long time, but Iona is a totally different animal with Laury in the lineup. He became the best big man in the league the moment he stepped on the court (Anosike and Rhamel Brown are the next in line) and though Mitch wants to slow the pace of the game, Iona really makes that a near-impossible task. Anosike is a stud, but his impact will be severely mitigated by Laury, and the Gaels are just so potent in the backcourt with a slew of different scoring options. As much as Iona has struggled in Albany in prior years, I can't pass this up. Iona's defense is notoriously shoddy at times and will let some less-talented teams hang around, but Siena's offense is beyond brutal and relies heavily on shooting a high-volume of threes. Not only are they inaccurate (32%), but those missed shots are going to lead to a ton of runouts in transition for Iona.  Small concern with the Gaels on the final leg of a three-game roadie, but at 1-1 in the MAAC, this game should have their full attention.

Leans:
None

Hey J fen big fan of yours. I really respect your college football plays and and was just wondering if you have any thoughts on the remaining bowl games. Sorry to post this on this thread but wasn't sure how else to contact you. Thanks in advance and keep up the great work!

Maybe Bama in a tease to -3.

Only stuff I have played - though didn't post - is a bunch of underdog ML's (SMU, Minny, KState, NIU, Central Michigan, Ohio, Bowling Green).

Hey J, was thinking about Iona, St. Pete, Rhode Island, and Loyola Maryland...really like fading Rider on the 4th in a row on the road, with a team that struggles to score.  Thoughts?
