Editor's Note--Welp the dreaded "hey the UNDER is going to win easy! OH NO OVERTIME!!" loss, cost Big D a perfect weekend. A real shame. But we got the Final Four tonight. And Big D has MORE winners. He's all ready to go. But before he goes, I will give a tip for today's Florida Derby (considering I will be in the building....). Race 14 at Gulfstream approximately 6:36 pm Eastern Time. How can you go against #6 CATHOLIC BOY on Easter Eve/Holy Saturday?!? You can't. Take him. Now on to the baskets....--R.B.
Thanks for the horse pick, Richie. Enjoy the track. We may or may not be in San Antonio today. And away we goooooo....
No longer consider a "bomb" or a "huge surprise", we will "go with the horse that brung us...." LOYOLA-CHICAGO just doesn't lose anymore. Now Michigan is no slouch either. The top 2 winning streaks in the land are in play. LOYOLA has 14 in a row, Michigan 13. But we feel like the points are high (again) with the RAMBLERS. Sure, Michigan is a Big 10 power, but that means nothing now. All that matters is who puts the biscuit in the the basket more. LOYOLA may not do that, but the 5.5 points look AWFULLY generous. Takerooo!
Yes, the UNDER was all good with Kansas/Duke until the kid with 24 letters in his name, hit the 3 to tie it. Overtime sunk us. Guess what? We'll go against another overtime, but go with the UNDER again, with these two number 1 seeds. 'Nova and Kansas have been shooting less well lately, and that 154.5 looks AWFULLY high again. UNDER in Texas, baby.
So the happy "Final Four" recap: LOYOLA-ILLINOIS+5.5 vs Michigan, UNDER 154.5 Kansas/Villanova
Check back Monday for our Championship pick! Now, speaking of bombs and surprises, it looks like we have found our outfits for today! Richie you'll be wearing this to the track, yes? Good luck. God bless. Enjoy.
