TUESDAY MARCH 2nd

OPPOSITE PICKS: 113-89-1 ATS
MONDAY: 4-2

WEST VIRGINIA +4 vs. Baylor
I thought Baylor was overrated BEFORE they lost to Kansas. Now, I really do. Pretty good, yes. Head and shoulders above the rest of the teams like Gonzaga & Michigan? No. Top 10 WVA will NOT lose to Baylor at home. LOVE GETTING points with the Mountaineers.
OPPOSITE PICK: BAYLOR -4

ARKANSAS -7 @ South Carolina
Somehow god awful SC drilled Georgia by 25+pts this past weekend. That doesn’t hide the fact they are brutal this year. They are 6-12 overall…4-10 in SEC play.The last time they won an SEC game, they lost to Miss St. by 16. The time before they lost to awful Vandy by 12 and the time before they lost to mediocre at best LSU by 5. Anybody notice a trend here? They do NOT put back to back wins together. Arkansas is going to crush S.Carolina.
OPPOSITE PICK: SOUTH CAROLINA +7

W. MICHIGAN Pk @ Northern Illinois
I can go against NIU at pickem? Do they know Northern Illinois has lost 6 in a row? Do they know NIU is DEAD LAST place in the MAC. Do they know NIU is 1-11 in conference play….2-15 overall? And now all I need to do is have this biggest waste of human flesh in basketball uniforms lose by one lousy, stinking, putrid smelling point? Oh, this is too easy.
OPPOSITE PICK: NORTHERN ILLINOIS Pk

ILLINOIS +8 @ Michigan
Wolverines are playing great basketball, no doubt about it. BUT they shouldn’t be 8pt favs in the Big 10 Game of the Year. No way. Illini has won 9 of it’s last 10. They have nice road wins @ Wisconsin, Duke, Indiana & Minnesota. So they can get it done @ Michigan. Wolverines have back to back games against rival Michigan St. up next. I doubt they would look past Illinois, but maybe they are 100% focused. LOVE getting EIGHT points with Illinois.
OPPOSITE PICK: MICHIGAN -8

MISSISSIPPI -1 vs. Kentucky
Wildcats had turned their season around and even had h/c John Calipari thinking about scheduling a non-conference game to help it’s NCAA At Large bid hopes. BUT then they lost to Florida Saturday and that put an end to all of that talk. This game now means nothing to them. But it still means everything to Ole Miss which has been beaten to the pulp by Kentucky over the years. This marks just the 2nd time in 39 games that Mississippi is favored in this match up. They’ve lost 22 of the last 24 meetings vs. Kentucky including 11 in a row over 10 years! This is their national championship game. LOVE Ole MISS laying one.
OPPOSITE PICK: KENTUCKY +1

PURDUE -2 vs. Wisconsin
This is a decent Wisconsin team, but not a great one. They’ve lost 6 of their last 10 as they are falling apart down the stretch. Purdue on the other hand has won 9 of 12 inc: 3 in a row. They need another big win like this to clinch an NCAA at large bid. They are also a nifty—80’s term—9-1 at home this year. Wisky is only 5-4 on the road with nearly all of those 5 road wins against the worst teams in the conference. They failed at Michigan & Illinois. You’d have to be drunk to bet Wisky to beat the Boilermakers on the road.
OPPOSITE PICK: WISCONSIN +2
