ACC Big 10 Challenge Continues – December 4th College Basketball Predictions – Ohio State at North Carolina

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

17-15-1 this season up 13.09 units

Maryland/Oklahoma State/Penn State Parlay risking 6 units to win 3.58 units.

Marquette -19.5 at -110 for 2.2 units. Markus Howard. Line was 21. I’ll take the point and half.

North Carolina -157 for 2 units. Ohio State have looked great this season, but Cole Anthony is a walking bucket. BRob being back for UNC helps their defense. UNC’s big men have been improving this season, especially the freshman Bacot. I expect North Carolina to get more easy baskets and win the game. Ohio State’s first game on the road as well.

Virginia +121 for 2 units. UVA is one of the few teams that can guard Matt Haarms. VCU struggled against the big man, UVA will do better. Florida State had 16 steals against Purdue. Got to take Virginia’s defense at plus money here.

South Carolina -125 for 2 units. I have predicted every South Carolina basketball game correctly this season, including their loss to Boston U and UNI. I like them to win two in a row here on the road. Maik Kotsar and AJ Lawson looked good against GW.

Morehead State -305 for 2 units. IUPUI has only 2 wins on the season. Morehead State have lost 4 in a row, but are favored in this one for a reason.

Premier League Wednesday with a Little PSG Action

92-78-9 on Soccer in 2018 up 8.17 units

60-51-11 on Soccer in 2019 down 7.45 units

Not gonna lie, tilting a little bit. Mad because I lost a parlay because of James Harden’s dunk that didn’t count. Seeing the board well lately, might as well ramp up the unit sizes and capitalize.

Norwich +0.5/PSG Parlay risking 3 units to win 3.81 units. Southampton haven’t won consecutive matches at home since March. The Canaries have been scoring goals lately. Teemu Pukki is a goal-scoring machine for club and country this season. The referee for this match, Kevin Friend, has been dishing out yellow cards at an impressive clip over his past 6 matches (4.5 a game). Norwich looked solid against Arsenal and Everton. I’ll take them to win or draw. PSG shouldn’t lose to Nantes. PSG are only two points clear at the top of the table. Just adding them to offset (Quavo) the juice and then some.

Aston Villa +1.5 at -110 for 3 units. Villa have covered in 4 of their past 5 matches. Manchester United scored from 2 corners in their match against Villa. I expect Villa to tighten up on defensive set plays in this one. Grealish and Mings are in-form. I think Villa are a better team than their table standings suggest. Value play here.

Liverpool -230 for 6 units. Liverpool are unbeaten in their past 31 league matches. Manchester City cut the lead to 8 points yesterday and looked dominant doing so. Liverpool push it back to 11 today. Had this line at -320 for the home team.

Tottenham +169 for 5 units. Tottenham/Manchester United Draw +235 for 5 units. Mourinho against his old club. A story as old as.. me. Manchester United’s defense has been slacking lately. Tottenham will score in this one. Alli has been given more freedom under Mourinho. He has been enjoying it as well, scored twice in their last match. Manchester United haven’t beat a top of the table team in a while, I dont expect it to happen today.

 

NBA is Rigged

This dunk did not count. The refs did not review it. The Rockets lost in double-overtime. Some people think James Harden is basketball aids, but this is clearly a terrible call by the refs. Yes, I am bitter because I went from having a positive 5 unit NBA day to a negative 10 unit NBA day because of this call. I am done with the NBA for a while. Bowl Games, NFL games, Soccer, and other such sports will help console me.
