Tue 11/13

Initially with an opening line of 5, I wasn't very intrigued. But with money piling in on the Illini, Georgetown is now an eight-point underdog Tuesday night. With Georgetown failing to cover its first two games by an average of 12.8 points, we have a bettors' edge. On the contrary, Illinois covered its first game by 23 points. This is a huge disparity and the market overreacted. Georgetown +8 is a no brainer and the Hoyas are even an intriguing money line play at +300. Time to tail the Hoyas.

Tue 11/13

The "sharp" play of Tuesday night belongs to The College of Charleston. Opening up the season 0-2 ATS, and facing a public favorite like Rhode Island which covered its opener by 19.5 points -- that all adds up to a Cougars' victory. Vegas is inflating Rhode Island's numbers until the Rams fail to cover and deflating Charleston's. The slight home favorite is the way to go Tuesday night.
