Editor's Note--Welp, it's been a long time since we rock and rolled. With selections that is. That all ends today. The NCAA basketball conference tourneys are in full swing!! Today, tomorrow, Friday, college hoops all day and night. Bubbles bursting. Dreams realized. All VERY exciting stuff. Now there are THREE tourneys in Vegas this week (with one ending last night and Gonzaga crowned champ of the WCC again). THREE tourneys! I wonder if Big D is shuttling back and forth between these Vegas venues, in his chauffeur driven, high end automobile, sipping fine champagne, and eating lobster thermidor? Perhaps. What I DO know? Your bookie might be trying to put you on "perma-hold" when you call in today. A tip? Call from a different number, so he doesn't know it's you at first. Winners are a comin. Goooooo Big D! Goooooooooooo!
Richie, this March (and early April!) could prove to be the most exciting in years. You could make a case for many teams to take the whole enchilada. However, there's a lotta basketball to be played between now and April. The "lesser teams" go today and tomorrow. Do the "lesser teams" pay less when you win with them? NO, they do not. Here goes.
We'll spread it around today. Miami, the U, can't really put the biscuit in the basket too easily. The Virginia Tech Hokies? Even worse on offense. We don't even care what the total is. This one is going UNDER. Nice and boring way to kick off our day. With money in our pockets. Nice and "boring".
The NORTHERN ILLINOIS HUSKIES aren't showing up on too many people's radars, but that doesn't deter us much. Big D's favorite conference, the MAC, kicks off its tourney in Cleveland tonight. Let's go with the "bad" HUSKIES who happen to have covered 11 of 14. We knew that would spark your tone up.
Finally, in the LAST game on the card, at 1130 pm eastern, you can snooze while you watch Stanford and Washington State. They will beat each other to a pulp, and baskets again will be hard to come by. U-N-D-E-R in Vegas in the Pac-12 tourney baby. Bank on it.
So the happy recap: UNDER Mia/VT, NORTHERN ILL +4.5 vs E. Mich, and UNDER Stanford/Wash St.
Now, it's a good thing these fellas stayed with their singing and not their hooping. Think of yourself today, as the 3 Chicago Bulls. You ain't losin. The cat at the :48 mark that says he's 202 pounds of "all man"? Big D will be using that line more often. Of course, using a different number than 202 pounds. Good luck and god bless. Enjoy.
