Getting Vegas Started Early


So, I’ve had a pretty lucrative month of March and there have been some requests for me to post a few of my picks for the beginning of tomorrow’s tournament for those of you who have been known to place a bet or two on sports.  I am in no way claiming to be an expert in this and am not encouraging any of you to go out and gamble on sports.  However, those of you who want to at least give me a shot or get on my case for trying.. heres your chance.  I’ve handicapped tomorrow’s games and have already placed my bets.  Here’s what I like:Img7189451

Look for (4) Illinois (25-6) to cover over (13) Air Force (24-6) at     -8.5.  Air Force plays in the Mountain West Conference, one of the worst conferences in the country this year in college basketball.  Illinois to be a double digit victor.

Also look for Boston College to win handily over our precious Big West hopeful, UOP.  The BC Eagles are an 8 point favorite and I believe will also win in double digit fashion.

Those are my two picks for tomorrows round of games.  If you take my advice and it doesn’t work out, I apologize in advance.  Nobody is forcing you to take these bets, just thought since I’ve won a bunch the past few weeks all on college ball, I’d throw in my 2 cents. 

You want my call for an upset tomorrow?  Here you have it folks, the bookies aren’t calling it much of an upset as the line is set at 1.5, but I look for an early exit for G Mac and the Syracuse Orange tomorrow against the hot 3 point shooters of Texas A&M.. YEEEEEEE HAW!!!

    Why did I ever pick the Okies to win anything? Fuckin Okies, how can you win with a nickname like that.

    Talk about a fuckin heart attack.. I thought they’d win by double digits, but I definitely wasn’t thinking 2 overtimes to get there..
