With a piss poor 3-2 performance last night, I was only able to buy a carton of Newports, a bag of Funjuns, and a Diet Rockstar with my winnings this morning (The staple breakfast of an ATS baller)...but I'm breaking records today Homeboyz with 7 picks. While I know most of you love my Association plays over the collegiate hardwood, I’m starting you off today with a couple NCAA gems. I’ve got 4 of the top 6 teams in the nation (we shall call them the Vanessa Marcil's) going on the road to play squads that have some hype but lack any true substance (we shall call them the Lindsey Lohan’s). I also have some NBA luv for ya...so don’t fret young degenerates and get ready to watch your bankroll rise…www.insideplays.com
OHIO STATE BUCKEYES (-10) @ NORTHWESTERN WILDCATS
Exactly a week ago the Buckeyes beat the Wildcats by 32, and they’ve continued to get better as Greg Oden gets healthy and more accustomed to playing with the rest of Thad Matta’s superstars. I doubt the deadly home court at Welsh-Ryan Arena is going to keep this game under 20 and I don’t think I can help but double-up on my normal bet tonight…Buckeyes by 22-28 points.
N. CAROLINA TAR HEELS (-15) @ WAKE FOREST D. DEACONS
The Tar Heels have more talent than a sex show in Amsterdam, while the Demon Deacons best player is a slow white dude that sounds like a cough medicine (Visser). I’ve been playing against Wake, losers of 4 in-a-row, all season and they have not disappointed. As for Roy Williams’s crew, they punish average teams worse than Joumana Kidd abused the Nets poor J-Kidd. I’m telling you fellas, this will be a blow-out by halftime…Tar Heels by 20-26 points.
FLORIDA GATORS (-5.5) @ MISSISSIPPI STATE BULLDOGS
The defending champs have won 10 in-a-row and the majority of them haven’t been close, while the Bulldogs have lost 4 of 6 and are led by 2 sophomores and a freshman. To tell you the truth, the spread is sooo low it scares me…well, it scares me like it scares my boy Todd about wearing a condom…and that doesn’t change his nightly results…Gators by 10-16 points
TEXAS A&M AGGIES (-3) @ TEXAS TECH RED RAIDERS
The #6 Aggies have quietly become one of the top teams in the nation with a starting line-up that has NBA size and shoots over 40% from behind the arc. Led by one of the coolest sports names in the county, besides Sasha “M*tha F*ckin” Kaun, senior Acie Law gives the Aggies leadership that has helped them win 9 in-a-row and beat #14 Oklahoma St. by 19 in their last contest. As for Bobby “Clip the Eyebrows” Knight, his boys are coming off an emotional victory against a lazy Jayhawks squad and should be ripe for a let-down…Aggies by 6-12 points.
DETRIOT PISTONS (-6) @ CHARLOTTE BOBCATS
With Chauncey and Lindsey (not the drunk chick pictured above) coming back from injury and the addition of C-Webb, the Pistons are looking to make a run back to the top of the Eastern Conference. While many people have criticized the Webber signing, he actually fits into Detriot’s system better than most. With Tayshaun and Rip slashing to the whole, Webber will get plenty of 12-16’ jumpers (his specialty now) and will add another player into Flip’s rotation that had one of the weakest benches in the NBA. As for the Cats of Bob, Bickerstaff has had to use Derek Anderson and Matt Carroll on the wing and that spells trouble when matching-up against Prince and Hamilton. In addition, with Sean May questionable and Primoz Brezec out this should be easier for Detroit than it was for Tank Johnson to find some trouble in Gurnee, IL (aka Whiteville)…Pistons by 10-16 points
NEW JERSEY NETS @ GOLDEN ST. WARRIORS (-4.5)
With Richard Jefferson sidelined after ankle surgery, the Nets are going to be playing two against five until he comes back. While the Warriors have been up and down this year, the addition of A. Harrington and S. Jackson to run with Baron, Monta Ellis, Pietrus, & Biedrins should be more exciting than a group of women dressed in high school uniforms…Warriors by 8-14 points.
PHOENIX SUNS (-9) @ NEW YORK KNICKS
Starbury is out, Eddy Curry can't run, and you know Steve Nash and Co. want to look good in teh Garden...Suns by 15-21 points
G. GAMBLE’S HOOP TOTALS- NBA 60-36 ATS ; NCAA 22-15 ATS
