SATURDAY NCAA: (2-1)
SEASON NCAA: (37-22)
Let me start by saying this, after Texas Tech wiped away an early season 26 point loss to Texas by beating them by 3 yesterday, I don’t even know if the world is round anymore. But with that lone game being the only thing that stood in my way of a perfect Saturday, I am still rollin’ into today with a large amount of confidence, especially after looking at the available plays. I bring you some East coast luv today, so click below, grab that 40 and dig in for the day.
Siena -6 @ St. Peters
On Friday night, the Siena Saints put up a 14 point victory to 4th place Niagara, who may not be tourney bound, but is not slouch in the MAAC. Now they roll into town to take on St. Peters(try to not snicker like your in 5th grade sex ed class), and this St. Peters(no laughing) team is scraping the bottom of the league with only 3 victories. I have a couple legit reasons why this one will get ugly soon…first is cuz the Saints stuck it to the Peacocks(yes that is there mascot, both Pee and cock in the same word) in their initial meeting by 23 points, 2nd is because Siena is fighting for the 1 seed in the conference tourney which is key to trying to get into the big dance. With that much on the line, plus the fact that Siena allows it’s guards to control the game, I don’t see this one being close past the 10 minute mark in the first half. Man I feel like I just completed a porno novel. Siena by 13.
Notre Dame -5 @ DePaul
When you look at the Irish they are the typical mid-top 25 team…beat everyone they should, and lose to those ranked above them. This is exactly what they have done this year with Big East losses to Georgetown, Louisville, UCONN, & Marquette respectively. And for all the wins in between those few losses, they have put a hurting on the rest of the Big East at home and on the road. Luke Harangody has been absolutely on fire in the Big East and earlier this week put up 40 against a very impressive Louisville squad, not bad for a sophomore playing in one of the most diverse conferences in the land. I do believe this one won’t creep above a 10 point lead all day, but with the 75% FT shooting that the Irish has they will pull away late at the line. Notre Dame by 7.
On a side note….make sure that you are in front of the tube for the Kentucky vs. Tennessee matchup. Kentucky frontman Patrick Patterson just announced that he is out for the rest of the season, the Wildcats are currently 12-3 in the SEC, and Patterson was bringing in almost 25% of their points. The reason to watch this is to see how Kentucky responds, if they have the talent to fill in these missing points, you could easily see them covering spreads over the next couple weeks cause Vegas will be looking at the loss of Patterson and not who takes his place.
