WiseGuyAction’s Tuesday College Hoops Delights

February 9, 2010 – 1:22 am by Kevin Johnston


After a lucrative second day at Rumors & Rants, my self-esteem has skyrocketed from below average to slightly below average.  If I was the kind of douche that wears sunglasses at night I just might consider picking up some prescription Ray Bans to wear out this weekend if I can string together a few more winning days.  These three plays all look rather appetizing, so proceed without caution…

As usual, all plays on sides, totals, and favorites are to win the stated number of units.  All plays on dogs are risking the stated number of units.

Unit hierarchy:
1 unit – It’s still better than the scallywag you took home from the bar last night.
2 units – Dude, are you sure?
3 units – That’s gold Jerry, gold!
4 units – You might need to move into your aunt Patty’s basement for a few months if this one’s not a winner.

YTD Record: 5-3, +3.50 units

Georgetown at Providence
Under 158.5 (-110, 2 units)

St. Louis at St. Joseph’s
St. Joseph’s -1 (-110, 2 units)
Both of these programs are having huge down years.  There isn’t much to get excited about with either one of these teams; the only difference is that lately St. Joseph’s has shown glimpses of being a competitive team while St. Louis has continued to seriously underwhelm.  I definitely like laying just 1 point in this spot on the home team who has been playing the better basketball of late.  Did I mention St. Louis is 2-5 on the road?  St. Joe’s is 7-4 at home.

Texas Tech at Oklahoma
Texas Tech +5.5 (-110, 2 units)
Alright, so a couple of idiots on the Sooners, Andrew Fitzgerald & Steven Pledger (pictured above), got issued a citation for petty larceny, so what?  If Oklahoma had a halfway decent team to begin with this year I might almost care.  Take the Red Raiders plus the points despite the fact that Oklahoma has been solid at home this year.  I like the play even without the off court distraction, but if it mentally affects the Sooners at all it’s just icing on the cake.
