Rudy Gobert’s stupidity suspends the NBA season (along with the CoronaVirus)

Rudy Gobert went out of his way to contract the Corona.

Here is a video of him touching all the mics recently at a press conference.

The NBA has suspended the rest of its season according to Shams. Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus. It seems like he thought it was a joke and went out of his way to get it. Unreal stuff. Gobert got the virus, making the NBA suspend the season. He put people in danger.
The NCAA tournament is being played without crowds. Italian soccer has been suspended. The slippery slope keeps slipping.

 

College Basketball March 4th – Waiting on the Madness

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

43-37-1 this season up 8.32 units

Florida State at -122 for 2 units. FSU are better than Notre Dame at scoring, scoring defense, rebounding, defending the 3-point line, scoring from 3, free throw shooting, and they have more depth. Notre Dame are the best team in the country at taking care of the ball, but that is one of their few advantages besides free throw defense. You gotta practice that free throw defense…

Virginia/Miami under 120.5 at -115 for 2 units. Death, Taxes, and Virginia unders.

Rhode Island +5 at -130 for 3 units. Does the Dayton train ever stop? Rhode Island is one of their tougher games this year. I like the Rams to keep it close. Rhode Island is coming off of a 10 point loss to St Louis. Rhode Island lost to Dayton by 14 earlier this year. You’d have to be a R-word to take this bet…… Fatts and Cyril, I am counting on you.

St Bonaventure at -750 for 3 units. Can’t lose. Won’t lose.

CS Northridge/Cal Irvine under 151.5 at -112 for 6 units. Cal Irvine’s last game around this number went under. Opponents only average 60 points when they visit Cal Irvine this season. Irvine has won against Northridge the past 5 times. They should control the game and win by a score near 75 to 65. Here’s a random but applicable stat: Since 1997, the under is 90-55 against the over when Cal Irvine allows 60 points or less in the game before. Go under and Anteaters!

 

College Basketball February 29th Predictions – 127 College Basketball Games Today

Seems like every college basketball team plays today.

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

42-36-1 this season up 12.69 units

Notre Dame at -127 for 5 units. Come down game after beating Dook in OT for Wake Forest. Notre Dame won this game at home by 10 a month ago. Notre Dame leads the country in least fouls committed per game and assist to turnover ratio. They don’t fuck themselves. John Mooney is solid. He does basically all the post scoring for Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish are 7-1 on Leap Days.

BYU at -323 for 3 units. Go Mormons!

 

Valentine’s Day College Basketball

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

41-36-1 this season up 8.89 units

Just a little something to distract you from dinner with your loved one.

Columbia +6 at -115 for 3 units. Columbia are 7-14 ATS this season. Not good. Dartmouth suck at shooting free-throws. Columbia are better at rebounding. Dartmouth does have a better defense, but the Lions shot the best they have all season last time out. Here’s to hoping that carries over. Two bad teams, but it is a small slate tonight and I like this spot. Plus Mike Smith is real good at basketball. Going with the underdog with the best player on the court.

College Basketball February 6th Predictions

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

41-34-1 this season up 20.89 units

William & Mary +6 at -110 for 6 units. The line has moved to +5.5 during writing after I placed my wager. The people are asking if I am moving lines.. No.

Stat Time: The Tribe won this matchup by 11 earlier this season. W&M have a better ATS record, are better at rebounding, 3-point shooting, and have two 7 footers. William and Mary are 8-2 ATS as an underdog this season. Charleston are 0-4 ATS when revenging a road loss this season. Charleston only have one player over 6 foot 8 that plays major minutes. I had this game as a push. Give me all those points. Vegas hasn’t seemed to have adjusted to William & Mary this year.. The Tribe may make their first NCAA tourney this year.

Old Dominion/North Texas/St Mary’s Money Line Parlay risking 6 units to win 6 units. Texas San Antonio do not shoot as well on the road as at home. ODU are better than their record entails. The Chartway Arena in Norfolk has weird sight-lines for shooters. ODU are favored by a little too much in my eyes, but sometimes you got to zag when you thought about zigging. Shoutout to Ziggy Sobotka. North Texas are better than Middle Tennessee St across my board. No brainer. Same for St Marys tonight against Whale’s Vagina.. I mean San Diego.

Ja Morant Vs Steph Curry and Andre Igoudola

This all started because Andre Igoudola’s career is coming to an end and the former Finals MVP wants to play for a contender. He doesn’t have any time to waste basically. Memphis young guys like Ja Morant respond by telling him to move on then.

Steph Curry then went to the gram and posted this picture on his story:

Ja Morant replied with this picture:

I mean… Ja Morant does have as many Finals MVPs as Steph Curry. KD did help Iggy and Steph tremendously. Iggy had to make sacrifices to win the Finals MVP.

#ThisLeague

Usually I like to pick the old head’s side, but Ja Morant sticking up for himself and going at Steph Curry is entertaining.

College Basketball February 4th Predictions – Boise State Rolls and a Parlay

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

38-30-1 this season up 25.59 units

Alabama -5 for 3 units. Alabama has an offense averaging over 80 points a game. Tennessee averages under 67. Tennessee shoots free throws a little better, but that’s about it. Taking the home team to take care of business tonight. Both teams have to win this one to make the NCAA at-large in my eyes.

Kent State -4 for 3 units. Kent State will score more at home than Ball State. I know. Sharp.

Auburn +1 for 3 units. Auburn averages 8 more rebounds a game than Arkansas does. Auburn is better on offense. Arkansas is better on defense. Should be a good game.

Buffalo -3.5 for 3 units. Buffalo should be favored by 7 or 8. That is all. 

Ohio State +3 at -120 for 3 units. Buying half a point here. Think it will be a close game. Either team can win.

Boise State -9.5 for 8 units. Wyoming shot 19% from 3 in their +4.5 underdog straight up win against San Jose State last time out. If they shoot that poorly tonight, they will get beat by 20. Wyoming had the advantage inside against San Jose. That won’t be the case tonight. Boise State will win by double-digits on the road against a 6-17 Wyoming team. Boise State won this matchup by 11 earlier in the season, but Boise’s best player, Derrick Alston, was 1-10 and 0-6 from 3 in that one. He will play better tonight. Book it. Bet all the monies.

Duke/Rhode Island/Texas Tech/Kentucky/Boise State Parlay risking 5 units to win 5.8 units.

Kobe Bryant on Kimmel in 2010

My Charlotte Hornets drafted both Kobe and Adam Morrison; although, neither became a star in Charlotte.. both won a ring in 2010. Here is Kobe being a great teammate…

Here is Shaq on Kobe… Seeing the 7-footer cry about a super-human dying seems surreal.

 

College Basketball January 29th Predictions

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

35-27-1 this season up 25.59 units

Davidson -4.5 at -110 for 4 units. As a VCU grad, I follow the A-10 closely. Davidson and GW may have similar records, but Davidson are the better team. GW’s first year coach, Jamion Christian, has GW on the right path, but Davidson cover tonight. Davidson’s defense has been great over their past 3 games. The Wildcats shoot better as well. Similar rebounding stats. Going with the better shooting team with the hotter defense. Pretty simple. Gunmundsson (Shoutout Gundersen on Hell on Wheels), Grady, and Mike Jones Who? Mike Jones. Who? MIKE JONES will all work GW.

Wake Forest +10 at -120 for 2 units. I watched some of the Virginia/Wake Forest game and Andrien White looked damn good for Wake. If he stays that hot, Wake cover easy. Also, I like betting on teams after they play UVA. Someone look up the ATS record of teams the game after they play Virginia please..

Seton Hall -9 for 2 units. Seton Hall is a better defensive team than Depaul. Depaul’s free throw shooting has led to them not covering in a couple games they should have this season (65%). Seton Hall are 5-1 ATS in home conference games this year. 8-1 at home ATS this season. The over has hit in 3 of the last 4 for both teams. Seton Hall won by 8 in this matchup a month ago.

Northern Iowa -10 for 2 units. Just love Northern Iowa. If you have been reading me… You know Northern Iowa and William & Mary have made me good money this year. Fading UNC too. Those have been my 3 honey holes all year until NC State decided to not try against their Rival Tar Heels, but I digress…

Arkansas -6.5 for 2 units. South Carolina can’t make free throws or shoot from deep. Arkansas has the perimeter advantage and enough of a presence down low to slow SC.

Michigan State/Dayton/Louisville/Notre Dame ML Parlay risking 3 units to win 2 units. Nothing sexy about this. Just think all 4 teams win.
