Hey, Sports Fans!

We are right in the heart of conference basketball season and we have been – completely immodestly – killing the books (another win last night with Cuse/Heels over by 37 1/2) from the campuses! True, many players overlook the NCAA basketball Totals in favor of the sides but, the pros will tell you, the larger edges are found on the Over/Under side. Tonight, let’s look at Texas A&M @ Auburn…

Texas A&M (13-5, 4-2 SEC, RPI 32): The Aggies are riding a 4 game win streak in SEC play with Coach Bill Kennedy masterfully rotating a lineup as deep as they come. 4 starters averaging 8 points and 4 boards or better per game plus another 6 players racking between 3-6 points per contest and ripping nearly 14 boards per trip from the bench.

No less than 10 Aggies have a double-digit game under their belt this season with much thanks to the SEC’s returning and current assist leader, 6’5″ G Alex Caruso (9.2p, 4.5r, 5.3a), while 6’7″ Danuel House provides the explosiveness and 3-balls and 6’9″ Kourtney Roberson (7.9p, 5.3r) is automatic, recording 11 games this season with 1 missed field goal or less!

Auburn (10-9, 2-4 SEC, RPI 147): The Tigers couldn’t provide a better contrast as Coach Bruce Pearl has been in the process of completely re-working this squad according to his extremely successful (472-154 in 20 seasons) game plan.

Last season’s 30-game starting point guard, Tahj-Shamsid-Deen now guards the bench while Pearly builds around the trio of the SEC’s top returning scorer, 6’4″ G KT Harrell (17.4p), the SEC’s top board man, 6’7″ 278 F Cinmeon Bowers (13.5p, 11.4r), and college basketball’s top returning scorer in 6’1″ G Antoine Mason who averaged 25.6 points per game last year with the Purple of Niagara.

A team on it’s way to competing in a major conference but the highway numbers are still simply appalling. 9-2 at home with 76.8 points per game while allowing 68.6. 0-6 on the road scoring 54.4 per game while allowing 67.3. READ THOSE NUMBERS AGAIN! Plenty of home-cooking at this level but shooting .446 at Auburn Arena versus .340 away is…is…well, make up your own adjective.

Hey, Sports Fans!

It sneaks up on many so we’re raising the call…your 2014-2015 College Basketball Season tips off this Friday night!

That’s right! Some 351 campus crews are about to embark on their pursuit of 68 Big Dance tickets culminating in Indianapolis on April 6th and it all begins Friday with 76 opening night contests and there are some pretty good match ups…

The highest profile match up is probably Minnesota vs #8 Louisville, hosted by ESPN from Puerto Rico at 7:00 EST while Georgia @ Georgia Tech and #15 Virginia Commonwealth vs Tennessee from Annapolis should be damn fine starters!

Plenty of opportunities to get your first look at other contenders as the AP’s entire Top-10 get in their first licks Friday including the preseason’s #1 Kentucky Wildcats bravely taking on the mighty Antelopes of Grand Canyon University from Rupp Arena!

Until then check out Tonight’s Free Pick!

Hey, Sports fans!

Six Games in and 6 Games to go
for much of college football’s great 128 chase for 4 tickets to the initial BCS Championship Tournament and already we’re down to just 6 squads with flawless records!

From the classic squabble over which undefeated teams get left out of the Championship Pair, it sure looks like the tussle this year will be over which 1-loss teams miss the Final Four!

Some damn fine 5-1 crews still on the board and have a superb shot but let’s take a look at the final group at 6-0…

Hello, Sports Fans!

Dynamite weekend coming up in college football marked by our traditional SEC Saturday Super Slate (highlighted by your 2014 SEC Total of the Year for Tennessee @ Georgia on ESPN at 12:00 EST) and great opportunities from sea to shining sea!

Last week we took a look at 5 situations ripe to produce outright underdogs from the campuses with 3 earning the cover including a pair – Utah and Rutgers – taking outright victories!

As you know by now, for 25 years our professional bag has been the Over/Under plays but let’s take a look at which pooches could have some outright bite this Saturday…

Hello, Sports Fans!

Last week we gave you a heads up on 3 good situations for upsets in college & pro football, hitting 2 out of 3 with Tex-San Antonio clearly outclassed by Oklahoma State, East Carolina +10 taking the outright at Virginia Tech, and the Chicago Bears +7 rallying to the 8 point win Sunday night in San Francisco.

Of course our professional bag is the Over/Under plays but let’s take a peek at good college pooch situations this Saturday. First a couple a few good spots for underdog covers…
