First and foremost, as if you aren't already stoked that it is Sunday and you have another full day of sports and calling your favorite bookie, today you get an extra bonus. This Sunday makes up for the other 51 Sundays when you are trying to come up with a reason to start sippin' on Alize before noon. Well today you woke up and it was magically an hour closer to noon than when you went to bed. So thank the 'spring forward' concept because it just brought you an excuse to drink at 11am and not have the better half filling out the divorce paperwork!
Our Inside Plays friend Jenna Jameson is living proof that you can have talent still make everyone around you happy!
And on the same day that we are so happy, we get brought down to earth by seeing the realization that cry babies without talent get paid nothing, but cry babies that drop 30+ balls a year(that's TO homeys) but has talent somehow get 6.5million a year. Something doesn't feel right with this one. But as I said yesterday(CHECK IT OUT HERE), owners continue to look at physical talent and don't account for the cancer that I call selfishness!
Teasin' T-Bone's picks are mmm, mmm, good!
On with what puts lettuce in our pockets....
Northern Illinois +4 @ Toledo
I admittedly don't know much about either team, other than the fact that they both have losing records. But I see a couple stats that make this one a little more black and white today. The first, and most important in my mind is the fact that the Huskies thumped the Rockets by 24 points earlier this season. When you lose by 24 to a sub .500 team and you only win 6 games all year, I think that means you just simply don't have the baseline talent to play in D-1. The second thing I like is that Northern Illinois puts up 10 more points a game, which tells me it will take a near perfect offensive performance for the Rockets to hang in for 40 minutes, which is tough to do for a team with 6 wins. Huskies win outright.
Much like Brooke, the ACC matchups today are oldies but goodies.
SUNDAY FUNDAY ACC TEASER SPECIAL
Duke teased to +12.5 @ North Carolina
Clemson @ Wake Forest teased to -1
I don't think the Dukies can avenge their loss from earlier this year, but Coach K will have a new game plan and a bit more focus to keep this one closer. As for Wake, they have only lost once at home and Clemson just lost at FSU.
