College Basketball Monday – Wofford and Fletcher Magee Keep Winning

70-62-2 on NCAAB last season and went up 8.95 units

24-25-1 this season down 3.71 units

Wofford at -321 for 6 units. Fletcher Magee has best combo of name and silky shot in college basketball since Jimmer Fredette.

Magee needs 6 more 3 pointers for the NCAA record. He will get it with at least 2 more games to play this season. Wofford’s coach, Mike Young, had this awesome quote. “We’re not a democracy. […} Load him up. We’ve had a number of guys we’ll load up. We don’t get into feelings around here. It was Hubie Brown who said you run special plays for special players.” UNC-Greensboro are a solid team and they won this tournament last season, but Wofford has too much firepower. Wofford gets their 20th straight victory and win the SOCON.

Hofstra -10 at -120 for 2 units. Delaware lost to Hofstra by 22 to end the regular season. Hofstra’s Justin Wright-Foreman is one of the best guards that no one is talking about. The Queens NY native is putting up 26.5/4 this season. He is good enough to carry Hofstra to an upset in the NCAA tournament. Hofstra has a lot better offense, an advantage inside, and better perimeter defense. Take the Pride to cover against Joe Flacco’s old school.

Northeastern at -156 for 2 units. Northeastern are shooting the ball well at the right time. This is basically a home game for Charleston so the line has some value in it even though it is more than -150. Vasa Pusica and Anthony Green are the best inside-out combo in the CAA. Charleston has some solid wins against VCU and Memphis, but they seem to slip up as well, with losses to William & Mary and Drexel. The margin for error is so small for Charleston in this game with how Northeastern are playing. I think Charleston is the better team over the course of the season (their record shows that), but it is March and the hotter team usually wins in March… Go Huskies in this one.

Indian Wells Round 3

91-44-6 on tennis in 2018 up 42.63 units

29-27 on tennis in 2019 down 34.44 units

Monfils -1.5 sets at -185 for 8 units. Monfils has been healthy and consistent this season. Monfils has won the past two matchups in straight sets. I could get into things like Monfils should play to Albert Ramos-Vinolas’ backhand and what not, but I am writing late today and want to post this.

Felix Auger-Alliassime at -152 for 4 units. Yoshihito Nishioka last beat Felix when Felix was 14. Felix is no longer 14. The Canadian is in the best form of his career and he will equal the head 2 head tonight. Yoshihito’s left-handedness could make for some difficult spots for Auger-Aliassime, but the young Canadian has won against better opponents than Nishioka.
