The action is a little bit on the light side for little boys hoops, so this may be a good day to diversify your funds a little bit. While going 3 for 4 yesterday on insideplays.com, I managed to sneak in a mid-day drunken 5 team parlay that left me one team short(f*ckin’ Hawkeyes beating MSU w/ 8 walk-ons) and even steven with my fun money account. So the only way to cure that is to study harder and find that hidden gem, which I have today so keep reading!
Arkansas Little-Rock -1 @ Denver
This one caught my attention early with ALR posting an 11-4 record compared to Denver’s 6-9 record. As I dug in I found out this….the Trojans of ALR know how to put up about 70 points on the road, they dominate the boards, and they get easy buckets by averaging almost 8 steals a game. On top of that they own Denver, beating them 4 of the last 5 times, so it’s almost more of a damn head game than anything else. Trojans by 5.
Fairfield @ Marist teased to -3.5
I will openly admit that I don’t know a whole heck of a lot about either of these clubs, but the teased line at 3.5 looks really good when Fairfield is a measely 5-10 overall and Marist is 6-0 at home. Teams that protect the home court normally have the opponent beat before the tip off, and this won’t be any different today.
Indiana @ Golden State teased to -4.5
The Pacers are on game 5 of a road swing, they played last night, and are playing their 5th game in 8 days, how ‘bout that for some reasons that Indiana will have their bags packed and thinking the flight back home can’t come soon enough. The Warriors are on a day of rest after a 12 point W against Pao Gasol, and they will roll by 10 today.
