    Analysis:

    Wild are not great in the underdog role while Edmonton has flourished at Rodgers Centre. Splitting my play with the over 6.5

    Analysis:

    Do you realize that at 5.5 the winning team must score AT LEAST 4 goals. And if the winning team doesn’t put up 5 goals then the loser has to score multiple times. This game is a ripe under.

    Analysis:

    Holmgren is becoming quite the force. And against a bad opponent that has no answers for his combo of skill and height, 23.5 seems quite charitable. Grab it now before it goes up. Over

    Analysis:

    Toronto is now on the road in Georgia after playing last night at home in Canada. This is a nice spot for the Hawks to shine on offense. A rested Young should feast. And get it now, the line was just 23.5 and is now 24.5 juiced to the over. May son be gone.

    @ Mt St Mary's
    65
    Analysis:

    Mount St. Mary’s should dictate pace and fins a way home here. I’m surprised this line is under one possession. Assist to M. McClure on this.

    AD is a tough matchup, Green is still not in tip top Draymond shape and he has overachieved. Buy regression

    Analysis:

    DRuss thrives without LBJ. Russell should thrive and be a facilitator. Love the assists over 6.5 but now that it has jumped to 7.5 let’s pair with points

    Analysis:

    Both teams can score and in a “horses for courses” mentality when they match up head to head the games go over. We need less than 6 to beat us let’s go OVER.

    Analysis:

    The Celtics play D. And they are especially stingy against opposing forwards and mid range shooters. This number is just too high. Let’s play against an outlier shooting game. Under

    Analysis:

    I know Phoenix is a team with lots of options. But Nurkic should stuff the stat sheet. He will have a nice rebound night and get enough easy hoops to go over. Thanks to Alex S. for turning my attention this way

    2-1 in Last 3 CBB O/U Picks
    Analysis:

    Both teams are great offensively and can fill it up. And if the first meeting was not a wonky game with only 110 total points this game would be 150. Let’s play against the outlier happening again.

    Analysis:

    Let’s take the Huskies here. They are the best team in the land right now and I don’t care what happened 5 years ago (as I keep hearing UCONn has lost 5 straight in Omaha). UCONn guard play is simply too good.

    Houston holds opponents to under 56 ppg…the Cyclones struggle away from home and Houston does not shoot FTs well (could be huge for us late if the game is close). Under
