Thunder -145 for 3 units. SGA and Darius Bazley went off for the Thunder against the Pelicans. The Magic have struggled on the road. The Magic have struggled to score points. Points are important in basketball. Nerleans Noel, Chris Paul, and Danilo Gallinari have played well this season. Not the roster I thought the Thunder would have, but they have actually looked good this season. The Magic have not.
Spurs -220 for 3 units. John Collins of the Hawks has been suspended for 25 games because of PEDs. Trae Young seems like he is returning, but I doubt he plays his full minutes. DeRozan and Aldrige should be able to score against the Collins-less Hawks team. Spurs have only lost to the LA teams this season, I like them to take care of business, like they have been doing for two decades, tonight.
70-62-2 on NCAAB last season up 8.95 units
My schools VCU and UNC are both going to be real good this season and I am excited..
Weird Card to get the season started, but I like these spots. Kentucky and Michigan State each have a few injuries that scare me away. I liked Kansas at +2, but now they are at -2 against Dook. Tre Jones is going to be one of the best point guards in the country this season for the Blue Devils. Going with the bigger, more athletic teams tonight. I like my angles on the Primetime “Big” Games for tomorrow night.. but for now..
William & Mary -2 at -105 for 4 units. Nathan Knight is 7 feet tall and averaged 21 points a game last season. High Point will not be able to guard him. Dane Fischer is the new coach for William & Mary. Andy Van Vliet is also 7 feet tall and starts for the Tribe. Willam & Mary shot 25 3s a game over the past 3 seasons, they will slow the game down this year and feed their big men.
Clemson -7 at -110 for 2 units. Mike Young is the new coach of Virginia Tech. He has done an impressive job on the recruiting trail for next season without even playing a game yet, but the Hokies might be the worst team in the ACC this year. Clemson needs to get off to a good start after barely missing the NCAA tournament last year.
Old Dominion +5 at -110 for 2 units. Old Dominion lost two of their best scorers from last season in Stith and Caver. Aaron Carver and Xavier Green will have to step up this season. ODU got a solid transfer in AJ Oliver from Clemson. This ODU team is long and athletic and I expect them to cause Northern Iowa some problems.
Rhode Island -15 at -110 for 2 units. Jeff Dowtin, Cyril Langevine and guard Fatts Russell is all I need. I had this line at 19. Fatts Russell is a stud.
Mississippi Valley State +34 at -110 for 2 units. Biggest spread on the board. Why not take the points? Iowa State will feel bad once they get up 25 and chill
Pepperdine at -135 for 2 units. Colbey Ross, Kameron Edwards, Kessler Edwards, and Jade Smith all averaged 9.6 points or more for Pepperdine last season. Colbey Ross can ball. Lorenzo Romar (former Washington coach) coached against Cal for over 10 years in the Pac-however teams they have now. Pepperdine plays fast and Cal are not a great defensive team, bad combo for the Bears tonight.
