Thankfully had a backdoor cover on my Cal +8 pick. Neither team wanted that game!
Looking at the lines for tomorrow’s play one line jumps out at me: SDSU -7.5 over Florida Gulf Coast. I think and am counting on Florida Gulf Coast blowing their load last night. While the Mountain West has been pathetic this year San Diego State is a veteran team that has been in the NCAA before and they are in a very favorable spot.
The last 4 years recent 13 – 15 seeds history in their second game are 2-6. The sample size is obviously small given how this doesn’t happen much but I think a double digit win by San Diego State is in order.
-2013 13th seed Harvard does not cover as a 10 point dog to 6thseeded Arizona
-2012 15th seed Lehigh does not cover as 3.5 point dog to 10thseeded Xavier 70-58
-2012 Norfolk State does not cover as 14.5 point dog to 7thseeded Florida 84-50
-2012 Ohio covers as a 2 point dog to 12th seeded South Florida 62-56
-2011 Morehead State does not cover as a 4 point dog to 12thseeded Richmond 65-48
-2010 Ohio does not cover as a 4.5 point dog to 6th seeded Tennesseee 83-68
-2010 Murray State covers as a 4.5 point dog to 5th seeded Butler 54-52
-2009 Cleveland State does not cover as a 2.5 point dog to 12thseeded Arizona 71-57
Thoughts and comments are welcome. BOL guys.
