Butler (28-9) vs. Connecticut (31-9)
Line: Connecticut by 3.5.

9:20 PM ET (Game 601-602)

You have to be nuts to bet this game. Almost every sharp in Vegas has sucked in this NCAA Tournament (per Bill Simmons' podcast). With a gun to my head, I'd take the Huskies moneyline because I don't think Kemba Walker will lose. But who the hell knows anymore?


College Basketball Pick: Connecticut 70, Butler 67

@chitown-lox..
I am DEFINATELY taking VCU. REASON: My son goes to FSU and he knows I am a loser, so he begged me to bet on VCU to ensure a 'Noles win.

@redleg. I love it man. I think you are right. We all try to figure out the angles, what if this, what if that...Kansas will smoke theses guys. I'm not sold on Ohio over Kentucky (the fact that Kentucky beat your Gators have anything to do with you hating them??? LOL))))

Redleg...nicely put, couldn't agree more. I also like the FSU line..FSU is clearly the better team here but vegas is keeping it close because VCU has been playing hot. I don't think they can handle a caliber team such as FSU.

I really find today's line to be very rewarding, I took a bath last, 1st bad night in about 3weeks, Ohio St. And Kansas. Listen guys, we can analyze ourselves to death here, the bottom line is this, these 2 teams are better than the other teams that are left. Would you take Richmond to cover if they played Kansas during the regular season? He'll no you wouldn't! This tournament is no different, same teams are playing. Kentucky cannot handle Ohio St. These lines have got me drooling so I'm going 5 bills on both, I don't care about the other games. These two are winners. If the don't cover, you can call me a dumb f@uck tomorrow, I'm getting my money back tonight, by god!

Go Heels!

I spent the best 4 years of my life banging around the Hill. Every football and basketball game I go to, every year that passes, I miss it more and more.

If any of you guys out there are in college: cherish it. It will go by far too fast - and while you may be ready to get out in the real world and make a paycheck - don't. You'll miss your college days the rest of your life. Go out tonight and get drunk, get some strange, and wake up and do it all over again tomorrow.

Unless you're a bigass loser. If that's the case, no idea. Best of luck with THAT.

Loved AZ last night and they made me $$. Thanks to Duke for being so overrated all year. What an asskicking.

No comp plays tonight, so stop emailing me.

I don't bet or tell my players to bet on UNC games. They're too close to my heart, so can't pick with a clear mind. But if I had to guess, I'd say UNC comes out with the 81-72 win.


Anyone know who BLUE STEEL is? It's the name the UNC walk-ons call themselves. 6 guys, a combined 4 minutes PT all year, and they rock ass. Funniest twitter feed I've ever seen.

Richmond does not use an aggressive style of defense that looks to force turnovers and Kansas will have immeasurable advantages executing their half court offensive plays. It's a high probability that Kansas will win this game by 12 or more points.

Also a high probability that Kentucky will lose this OSU game by fewer than four points and has an excellent opportunity to win the game. Kentucky is a much better rebounding team and Head coach Calipari is an amazing 23-8 ATS.

It's not likely we'll see any more upsets in this region. Florida State should handle VCU and Kansas won't have much trouble with a Richmond squad that lacks depth.

@Charlie..yes UNC will beat Marquette solid. Yes I do think both FSU and Kansas will beat the spread given their superority....However the Ohio State/Kentucky game has me thinking...and I am not usually a thinker.

Nobody beats the Wiz. Nuggets -17

Virginia-Commonwealth (27-11) vs. Kansas (35-2)
Line: Kansas by 11.5.

2:00 PM ET (Game 721-722)

Even when I'm right, I'm wrong. I'm taking Kansas - they're now the favorite to win the whole thing, and as I wrote earlier, the past five national champs are 26-4 against the spread in the tournament. The Jayhawks are 2-1 ATS thus far.

Saturday, March 26, 2011


Arizona (30-7) vs. Connecticut (29-9)
Line: Connecticut by 2.5.

7:00 PM ET (Game 515-516)

I've suddenly realized why I've sucked at handicapping the NCAA Tournament - because it makes no f***ing sense. How does Kentucky go from nearly losing to Princeton to knocking off Ohio State? Whatever. I'm going one unit from here on out, and I'm taking Kemba Walker tonight. I think we're all overreacting to Arizona's victory over Duke. The Wildcats just played their best half of the entire season. I doubt they can duplicate that.

Kentucky (27-8) vs. Ohio State (34-2)
Line: Ohio State by 6.

9:30 PM ET (Game 879-880)

I'm going to continue to ride Ohio State. As I wrote last weekend, national champions are 26-4 against the spread in the NCAA Tournament dating back to 2006, and Ohio State is undefeated against the spread thus far.

Butler (25-9) vs. Wisconsin (25-8)
Line: Wisconsin by 4.5.

9:55 PM ET (Game 807-808)

I'm done betting against Butler. They're awesome. They have more experience than Wisconsin, and I can't believe that they'd lose by five or more points to anyone outside of maybe Ohio State.

Michigan (21-13) vs. Duke (31-4)
Line: Duke by 12.5.

2:45 PM ET (Game 719-720)

This seems like a high spread, but not after you hear this stat: Since 2006, teams that win the championship are 26-4 against the spread in the NCAA Tournament. With that in mind, I'm taking the two best teams.


College Basketball Pick: Duke 81, Michigan 61
Duke -12.5 (1.5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$165
Duke 73, Michigan 71



George Mason (27-6) vs. Ohio State (33-2)
Line: Ohio State by 11.

5:15 PM ET (Game 723-724)

Once again, I'm taking the two teams that have the best shot at winning the NCAA Tournament. As for Kansas, I think they're too lazy after watchinig them struggle on Friday.


College Basketball Pick: Ohio State 77, George Mason 59
Ohio State -11 (1.5 Units) -- Correct; +$150

Hampton (24-8) vs. Duke (30-4)
Line: Duke by 23.

3:10 PM ET (Game 829-830)

If I don't get this selection right, I'm done making college basketball picks for the year. I did so well in the regular season, but the conference and NCAA Tournaments have destroyed my bankroll.

Thursday, March 17, 2011 (0-2, -$440)


Northern Colorado (21-10) vs. San Diego State (32-2)
Line: San Diego State by 15.5.

4:40 PM ET (Game 731-732)

One afternoon game and one evening game today - I like Northern Colorado to cover the spread. San Diego State had only four conference blowouts, so I don't know why they'd suddenly have a huge victory over a conference champion that can score.


College Basketball Pick: San Diego State 76, Northern Colorado 68
Northern Colorado +15.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
San Diego State 78, Northern Colorado 60



Belmont (30-4) vs. Wisconsin (23-8)
Line: Wisconsin by 5.

7:25 PM ET (Game 737-738)

Belmont is better than Wisconsin. That's why I'm taking them. The Badgers are in a free fall; they were blown out at Ohio State and then scored just 33 points against Penn State.


College Basketball Pick: Belmont 70, Wisconsin 61
Belmont +5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220

UAB (22-8) vs. Clemson (21-11)
Line: Clemson by 4.5.

9:00 PM ET (Game 541-542)

As I wrote in my 2011 NCAA Tournament Picks, I believe that UAB and VCU will make all the talking heads eat their words by winning two games in the Big Dance (including these bogus first-four contests).

Michigan State (19-13) vs. Penn State (18-13)
Line: Michigan State by 3.

4:00 PM ET (Game 535-536) - Game at Indianapolis, Ind.

Penn State is currently in the NCAA Tournament according to Joe Lunardi and our own bracketology, but I'm terrified that we're going to embarrass ourselves against Michigan State. It's Izzo Time, and the Nittany Lions are just 4-19 in their previous 23 matchups against Sparty.

LaSalle (15-17) vs. Temple (24-6)
Line: Temple by 9.5.

6:30 PM ET (Game 839-840) - Game at Atlantic City, N.J.

Temple is a capsizing team. The Owls have struggled recently - they barely beat LaSalle about a week ago - because they have so many injuries. It wouldn't surprise me if they lost this game.

LaSalle +9.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220

UC-Riverside (12-18) vs. Long Beach State (21-10)
Line: Long Beach State by 10.

9:30 PM ET (Game 879-880) - Game at Anaheim, Calif.

Long Beach State, the No. 1 seed in the Big West Conference, nearly choked yesterday against UC-Irvine. UC-Riverside just knocked off the No. 2 seed, and they played Long Beach tough twice this year.


College Basketball Pick: Long Beach State 70, UC-Riverside 66

Arkansas (18-12) vs. Tennessee (18-13)
Line: Tennessee by 6.

7:30 PM ET (Game 743-744) - Game at Atlanta, Ga.

Tennessee sucks. They're on the bubble, and I think they're going to choke. They don't take inferior teams seriously anyway.

Georgia Tech (13-17) vs. Virginia Tech (19-10)
Line: Virginia Tech by 5.

9:25 PM ET (Game 721-722) - Game at Greensboro, N.C.

Virginia Tech is another bubble team I believe is going to choke. Outside of that victory over Duke, the Hokies have played like crap recently.

Oklahoma (13-17) vs. Baylor (18-12)
Line: Baylor by 7.

7:00 PM ET (Game 635-636) - Game at Kansas City, Mo.

Baylor sucks. They've lost four of five. They need this game to get into the NCAA Tournament, so there's a chance they could choke.

Oklahoma +7 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200

South Florida (9-22) vs. Villanova (23-9)
Line: Villanova by 9.5.

7:00 PM ET (Game 569-570) - Game at Madison Square Garden, N.Y.

Villanova really sucks. Sure, they've lost to a bunch of great teams recently, but they also barely beat DePaul and Seton Hall during their slump. It wouldn't surprise me if South Florida came away with a victory.


College Basketball Pick: Villanova 73, South Florida 69

South Dakota State (19-11) vs. Oakland (23-9)
Line: Oakland by 2.5.

7:00 PM ET (Game 531-532) - Game at Sioux Falls, S.D.

My strategy to bet against the No. 1 seeds in conference tournaments completely bombed on Saturday, but worked flawlessly on Sunday. If only I had the balls to stick with it. Ugh.

Let's keep going with it. This Oakland team is lucky enough to evade Al Davis, but South Dakota State is pretty much at home.

Binghamton (8-22) vs. Vermont (22-7)
Line: Vermont by 12.

2:20 PM ET (Game 703-704) - Game at Hartford, Conn.

I have five picks today, all of which have one thing in common - I'm betting against No. 1 seeds in mid- and low-major conference tournaments. The reason's simple: These teams have enjoyed tremendous regular seasons, but one loss here means elimination from NCAA Tournament contention. That's just way too much pressure on a bunch of kids. Hell, professional football and basketball players tend to choke in must-win situations.

In this game, I'm taking Tony Kornheiser's alma mater. Binghamton has been blown out only once since Jan. 23. The Bearcats battled Vermont close on Feb. 13, losing 60-51.

North Florida (15-18) vs. Belmont (29-4)
Line: Belmont by 17.5.

6:00 PM ET (Game 711-712) - Game at Macon, Ga.

How can you not take a school named after the great vampire hunter, Simon Belmont? Well, the Bruins have been shaky lately, barely beating Kennesaw State and Mercer. The Ospreys, meanwhile, have knocked off the Nos. 2 and 3 seeds in the Atlantic Sun Tournament.

Southern Utah (11-18) vs. Oakland (22-9)
Line: Oakland by 13.

7:00 PM ET (Game 713-714) - Game at Sioux Falls, S.D.

I'm sure Oakland has a bunch of "great playas" with Al Davis in town, but I'm taking Southern Utah to cover. The Thunderbirds were 5-3 in the month of February, and their losses were by 3, 2 and 14.

Elon (14-16) vs. College of Charleston (22-9)
Line: College of Charleston by 9.

9:25 PM ET (Game 675-676) - Game at Chattanooga, Tenn.

This is a conspicuously short line, but Elon's the hotter team. The Phoenix have won four of five, while College of Charleston has dropped two in a row going into the SoCon Tournament.

Southern Illinois (13-18) at Missouri State (23-7)
Line: Missouri State by 11.

1:00 PM ET (Game 843-844)

Missouri State put together a great season. However, it could all end this afternoon if they lose to a crappy 13-18 squad. That's a lot of pressure to put on a bunch of kids. Also, the Bears have only one double-digit victory in the past two months.

This game's happening in 20 minutes, FYI. I apologize; I didn't realize that there were early games today.

Oregon State (10-17) at Arizona (23-6)
Line: Arizona by 14.5.

8:30 PM ET (Game 515-516)

Arizona is not playing good basketball right now. The Wildcats have dropped two in a row, and have only beaten one opponent by double digits since Jan. 27. Oregon State, meanwhile, has kept its games close over the past month.

I also gave some consideration to St. John's -2. But that line just looks like a trap. The Johnnies should be ranked in the top 10 and Seton Hall sucks, so why is the line only -2? Makes no sense to me.

8:00 PM ET (Game 547-548)

Valparaiso is 21-10, but they're just 2-3 in their previous five games. Youngstown State, meanwhile, has not lost by more than 12 points since Jan. 29.

Providence (14-14) at Marquette (17-11)
Line: Marquette by 10.

4:00 PM ET (Game 833-834)

Marquette, losers of five of its previous nine games, has been inconsistent all year. I don't think they deserve to be favored by 10 over a decent Providence team. The Friars should be able to score enough to cover.

St. John's (18-9) at Villanova (21-7)
Line: Villanova by 6.5.

2:00 PM ET (Game 567-568)

Villanova has been playing like crap lately. They're 2-3 in their previous five, with their two wins coming against DePaul (by 2) and Seton Hall (by 3). St. John's is the better team right now.

Mississippi State (14-13) at Tennessee (17-11)
Line: Tennessee by 11.

6:00 PM ET (Game 601-602)

Tennessee is a lazy team that doesn't take lesser opponents seriously. And they're not that good. The Vols have lost four of six, while Mississippi State hasn't suffered a double-digit loss since Feb. 2.

Wyoming (10-17) at UNLV (21-7)

This is a pretty high spread for UNLV. The Rebs don't really blow teams out, while Wyoming has been playing well of late.

Line: Florida Atlantic by 10.

7:00 PM ET (Game 519-520)

Rough week thus far. Let's hope Troy saves me. Troy has won three of four and is playing a lot better than Florida Atlantic right now. The Owls have lost two of three, including one game by 27 points.

DePaul has been playing everyone tough. Check out their previous five results: loss by 2 vs. Villanova; win by 3 at Providence; loss by 11 at West Virginia; loss by 3 vs. Cincinnnati; loss by 4 at Louisville. Meanwhile, St. John's has battled so many tough opponents recently; the last cupcake team they've played was Rutgers (at home on Feb. 2), and they won that game by only two points. This could be a similar letdown.

I have no idea where Kennesaw State is, but I'm taking them to cover this inflated point spread. Kennesaw State has won three of four, and they're a team that doesn't get blown out frequently. Meanwhile, Jacksonville doesn't have a win of more than 13 points since Jan. 22.

Both teams are 3-4 in their previous seven games, yet UC-Santa Barbara is a 12-point favorite. How does that make any sense? UC-Santa Barbara doesn't blow anyone out, while CS-Fullerton usually keeps its games close; the four aforementioned losses were by 1, 2, 2 and 15.

Yale is a solid team. They've won two in a row, and six of their previous eight. The last time they lost a game by more than eight points was on Dec. 28 at Stanford.

Furman is favored by 20.5 - which is way too many points for a team coming off a loss that doesn't blow its opponents out. Georgia Southern, meanwhile, has only lost one game by 20-plus points since the beginning of January, so they've been playing tough despite their ugly record.

Bradley (8-16) at Missouri State (18-6)
Line: Missouri State by 15.5.

8:00 PM ET (Game 765-766)

I have to go on a rant for a second because we were seriously cheated in the Indiana-Purdue game last night. Indiana stayed within 11 points the entire game. Thanks to a pair of free throws in the final minute, Purdue finally increased its lead to 12. Indiana missed the ensuing layup, and there were 20 seconds remaining.

Now, down 12 with 20 seconds left, the Hoosiers had no chance, right? Not according to head coach Tom Crean. Crean yelled at his players, imploring them to foul. The refs let a couple of fouls go, but finally blew the whistle with 13 seconds left. Yeah, you're going to overcome a 12-point deficit in 13 seconds, you f***ing moron.

As this happened, I yelled:

"No!!!!!!!!!! What the f*** are you fouling for!!!!! F*** you, Tom Crean, you f***ing nerd!!!!!"

Of course, Purdue drained two free throws and Indiana missed a half-a**ed attempt at a three-pointer, and that was that. The worst push in college basketball history.

At any rate, Missouri State isn't playing very good basketball right now; they've dropped two of three and haven't even covered the spread since Jan. 16. Bradley, meanwhile, has won two in a row.

Clemson (13-4) at North Carolina (12-5)
Line: North Carolina by 5.5.


It's amazing how North Carolina continues to be overrated. They don't cover any of their games because the oddsmakers keep setting the line too high, perhaps thinking that bettors expect them to bounce back. Well, it doesn't appear as though they will. Clemson's the better and hotter team.


College Basketball Pick: North Carolina 72, Clemson 70
Clemson +5.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
North Carolina 75, Clemson 65




Monday, January 17, 2011 (0-1, -$220)


Kansas State (13-5) at Missouri (15-3)
Line: Missouri by 5.


Remember when Kansas State was a top-five team coming into the season? Well, they've lost some games and have become undervalued. Missouri's record is inflated, and I believe Kansas State is the better team.


College Basketball Pick: Kansas State 70, Missouri 64
Kansas State +5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Missouri 75, Kansas State 59




Sunday, January 16, 2011 (0-1, -$330)


Eastern Michigan (4-11) at Western Michigan (8-7)
Line: Western Michigan by 10.5.


This is a strange line; Eastern Michigan hasn't lost by double digits since Dec. 5, so I think they'll cover.


College Basketball Pick: Western Michigan 71, Eastern Michigan 65
Eastern Michigan +10.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Western Michigan 65, Eastern Michigan 48




Saturday, January 15, 2011 (3-1, +$370)


UCLA (10-6) at Oregon (8-9)
Line: UCLA by 4.


Two reasons why I like Oregon: First, UCLA is overrated this year. And second, I don't see how any team can win on Oregon's new court. It's like Boise State's blue turf.


College Basketball Pick: Oregon 76, UCLA 66
Oregon +4 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330



Penn State (10-6) at Ohio State (18-0)
Line: Ohio State by 18.5.


This line is way too high; Penn State's playing really well right now.


College Basketball Pick: Ohio State 70, Penn State 58
Penn State +18.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200



Cornell (4-10) at Columbia (9-5)
Line: Columbia by 3.5.


Do people think Cornell is going to bounce back because of their NCAA Tournament run? Why is this line only 3.5?


College Basketball Pick: Columbia 74, Cornell 65
Columbia -3.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300



UC-Riverside (7-8) at UC-Santa Barbara (9-6)
Line: UC-Santa Barbara by 13.


I don't get this line. The last time Riverside lost by double digits was Dec. 14 - and that was to Saint Mary's, which is understandable. And it's not like Santa Barbara is that good.


College Basketball Pick: UC-Santa Barbara 71, UC-Riverside 65
UC-Riverside +13 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Thursday, January 13, 2011 (1-1, -$130)


Providence (11-6) at West Virginia (10-4)
Line: West Virginia by 9.5.


It's no surprise that West Virginia is only 4-7 against the spread. They're still living off what they did last year. They're not 9.5 points better than Providence.


College Basketball Pick: West Virginia 71, Providence 67
Providence +9.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330



UNC-Greensboro (0-15) at Appalachian State (7-7)
Line: Appalachian State by 15.5.


UNC-Greensboro is playing hard for its first win. Dating back to Dec. 8, all but one of their losses (to Duke) has been by 15 points or fewer. They even took Wake Forest and Maryland down to the wire.


College Basketball Pick: Appalachian State 75, UNC-Greensboro 66
UNC-Greensboro +15.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Wednesday, January 12, 2011 (1-0-1, +$300)


Ohio State (17-0) at Michigan (11-5)
Line: Ohio State by 11.


College basketball picks are back!

Ohio State is favored by way too much in this heated rivalry. They haven't played a tough road game since Thanksgiving, while Michigan just played really well against Kansas.


College Basketball Pick: Ohio State 74, Michigan 72
Michigan +11 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300



Toledo (3-12) at Central Michigan (3-11)
Line: Central Michigan by 13.


What the hell are they thinking with this spread? Central Michigan has just one win since Thanksgiving - a 3-point victory over Cornerstone College. That's not even a real school.


College Basketball Pick: Central Michigan 59, Toledo 58
Toledo +13 (2 Units) -- Push; $0
