My YTD is now 53-54-1 after a nice 2-0 night. I am hot a bit of a hot streak here so ride a long before the downhill crash comes. There is a great slate tonight and so many games that I really enjoy.
Purdue -2 @ Maryland
Maryland is an interesting team this year who has been a bit streaky as of late. I don’t really like this game but it starts at 630pm so it is a must. I feel like Carson Edwards has been on this team for 8 years and he has the experience to take down teams like Maryland. He has dagger three pointers and ever since Haas was on their team, i feel like he has a bunch of brothers on the team too. I just have a weird theory about Purdue. Ever since Wisconsin beat up on Maryland, I was off of them. I think this is a big win for Purdue and they separate themselves.
Pick Purdue -2
Marquette – 3.5 @ DePaul
So Marquette has been in this situation as of late when they are on the road against mediocre teams and the spread just doesn’t make sense. Marquette has been running through the big east but DePaul has some surprising wins as well. Beating Seton Hall twice and other were surprising because they were the laughing stock of the conference for the past several years. This seems like a trap line but you have to roll with the hot team.
Pick Marquette -3.5
Duke -8 @ Louisville
This is the bread and butter. Duke has proven to beat good teams on the road and Louisville has been playing well. I think 8 is a bit much but Duke will still blow the doors off of them. They played so well on Saturday and just clicked like I have never seen before. That will continue with leadership of these freshman and Marques Bolden who has been playing to his potential finally. The crowd will not be a factor and I just do not see a problem with this. Tre Jones has sparked the team and facilitates these stars so watch out.
Pick Duke -8
There are so many good games tonight which is also scary. Pray that the hot streak continues and to the moon.
