My YTD is 11-12-1 as last night was bad beat central. If you are able to bounce back after these heartbreaks as there are a lot more college basketball games tonight. These guys know what they are doing to the world but we will still gamble until we die.
Michigan -9.5 @ Illinois
I do not know why I am attracted to this game and the sad part is I am a big Michigan basketball guy. Ever since their plane crash and played their conference tournament in practice uniforms and won it all, they have won over my gambling heart. It is going to be tough but I am going against them tonight. Michigan has that target on their back as they are the #2 team in the nation and this crowd will be electric. Illinois is having a rough season and they are also coming off a brutal late game three loss against Northwestern. I don’t think they get blown out of the gym and they cover this spread.
Pick Illinois +9.5
UCLA @ Oregon -3.5
I am still on the train of coming off a tough loss and Oregon lost at home against Oregon State on Saturday. This is an integrity check for them at home and UCLA has screwed me this season. They lost to fucking Liberty. You cannot lose to a college named liberty when you are UCLA. Louis King for Oregon needs to come out hot as he went 6-17 in the last game. They will come together even though UCLA has been playing well as of late.
Pick Oregon -3.5
Celtics -3 @ Heat
This is pretty simple. The Heat are not a good team and the Celtics have their mojo back. They are on a four game winning streak and are beating the shit out of teams. If you think they roll into Miami and throw up a dud, you are a moron. This is free money and Kyrie is going to have a field day as nobody will be able to guard him. I will be putting the most money on this game and I want to put even more. This is the perfect stretch for the C’s as they do not play any great teams so they will get their shit together.
Pick Celtics +3
It is a pretty shitty night in sports but in gambling there are never shitty games. Those “shitty games” are personally my favorite. Bad basketball with gambling involved is a present.
