    $$$College Hoops$$$ Week of Feb.18

    Monday Presidents Day

    3 possible traps all in the same conference

    4PM Sienna @ Manhatten +4
    73% on Sienna line moved from -5 to -4, Play MAN

    4PM St Peters+13 @ Niagra
    81% on Niagra while line moved from -14 to -13, Play Peters

    Iffy play 4:30PM Iona @ Canisius+6(B+1/2)
    65% on Iona while line dropped from -6 to -5 some places(-5 1/2 on mine),
    PLay Can +6, if this goes to -5 is a go, I played it anyway.

    these aren't as strong as others where the lines moves more than 1 point, but
    that maybe because fewer wagers are placed on them due to smaller colleges.

    Others Im playing
    4PM Xavier @ Rhode Island-2 (played ML @ -125)
    X's starting Guard Drew Lavender is Doubtful and they have lost last 4 ATS

    7PM Utah State @ San Jose State+4
    US just played midnight at Hawaii saturday night, then they have to play at San jose 2 days later, US is just 3-8 ATS on road, SJ is 6-0 ATS against Utah St.

    watching 8PMGonzaga-6 1/2 @ San Diego
    55% on SD while line has dropped from Zaga -8 to -6 1/2, but Zaga is getting pounded on ML @ 91%, might be a play on SD based on the ML percentage.

    I like:

    Texas A &M +5 over Texas

    Rider +3 over Loy-MD

    Over 140 San Jose/Utah State

    Tease--San Fran pk/Xavier +7

    Short on time but like all the angles you mentioned too. San Jose is worth a look too.

    Weird line of the day Play for me is Tennesee State +1 over Austin Peay...AP is the loader in the OVC and should be favored by a lot more than 1 and should win...Why wouldn't you take Austin Peay? Go the other way!

    Tennesee State +1

    Look at this way...AP was favored by -7 at home against TN St and pulled out a 1 point squeeker...now they`re at TN St and my line went down from -1 TN St to a PK...AP got the money and TN St got the win...sounds about right...

    2-3 for me. The over came up short by 3, Rider blew a 41-29 Halftime lead to lose by 5. A &M blows and I should have known. Teaser comes up nice and would have won as a regular parlay too. Tenny State win SU on the weird line of the day game.

    Couple ealry ones where I think the line may move for Tuesday:

    Purdue +5 over Indy

    Bradley +7 over Drake

    Both are generous lines for team that are hot and can win Su even on the road. Drake had a tough game at UNI on Saturday and Bradley has been on fire.

    5-1 yesterday on my posted plays
    traps are now at 11-4 since keeping track

    Trap for today:
    Bowl Green +11 @ Ohio
    67% on Ohio while line dropped from -12 to -11,
    play on BG+11

    a lot of other 1/2 point moves in the wrong way, but not enough for a play yet.

    I have to leave and won't be able to other line moves for morre plays.

    Like that BG play--I got them at +12 and I think I jumped on them a gamne too early on Staurday, but that juts guives some added value to this on.

    Ml Parlay:

    Miami-OH
    Indy State


    Thats what I got today--Seems like I have a good handle on tnight's games but we will see.

    damn, BG lossed and I missed out on 2 other traps since I couldn't check back closer to game time.

    Purdue had 69% of the wagers and they moved from +5 to +6, Indy covered

    Daivdson had 71% and the line moved down 1 1/2 points to -12, NC greensboro covered

    so the traps actually went 2-1 on the day. I broke my rule and played under 70% on wagers too. 69% would have been close enough to go for it.

    Wacky line of the night--

    Illinois Chicago +5 vs. Butler...Lots of cash on Butler but line is staying put. I bought the 1/2 point. Think this one of those possible upset games. UIC is 11-1 at home tghis year but suck on the road.

    ML Parlay:
    Wright State/VCU

    Nice call on Wisky last night guys. Nice night for me as I snuck out the 1 point cover with VCU. Card looks solid tonight. I'll be back later with some picks.

    4-2-1 on the night for me.

    Lines are getting very tight--How many 1-2 point games within the spread last night? Many were dependent on when you played and what number you got.

    One I do like otnight is Arizona over washington--

    What do you think Rick? AZ needs a win here and they are playing the better ball lately. Whats your perspective out west?

    didn't have a chance to post yesterday
    traps went 2-0 or 1-0-1 depending where you get your line
    Traps were
    Play on Ball state + 5(5 1/2) @ C. Mich , push @5
    Play on Fordham+5 @ St Louis , win

    so far todays play would be
    8pm pst Arizona @ Wahington -2
    AZ is getting 72% of the wagers while their line has dropped from pk to +2

    there maybe more

    Playing OVER 73.5 2nd half Dayton/Lasalle

    A note on that second half play...I don;t usually have time to set there and play 2nd halfs all night but I did last night. I think there is opportunity on some of these with the lines being so tight right now in conf. play.

    Dayton and Lasalle had 51 points at half.

    The line was 73.5 for the second half.

    The original total on this game closed around 142.

    51 + 73.5 = 124.5

    Almost 17.5 points off the closing line.

    Oddsmakers are "usually" NOToff this far on games, so there was some value on getting almost 17 points from the line knowing that these two teams have been in the 70's most of the year and obviously had a poor shooting 1st half.

    The result 44-35 Lasalle in the scond half going over the total for the 2nd half and the game.

    There are some opportunites like this out there and I think that is what they define as value.

    Shitty thing was that Dayton blew a 11 point lead and I had Dayton at a pk so it evened out.

    But I really don't have time to do this for all games, but if you do, it is something to look at. On Sides too...See USC-Oregon game last night too.
