Recap of Last Night: Back on track with a tad of SORCERY. St. Mary’s allowed you to buy a new house and maintain your kids. Locks only baby. The BEARD went absolutely off but his lack of defense and KIWI’s unbelievable play was too much to handle. I wish we could potentially see this as the Western Conference Finals this year as long as they aren’t playing each other earlier in the playoffs. The fact that the under pushed was reckless. If the Rockets did’t score 39 points in the first quarter this could have sided with us but we will not be upset with a push. Let’s get after it tonight. Overall Record (17-9-2).
Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Spread: -1.5 Pitt
Moneyline: (-125 Pitt, +105 GAT)
It’s my FAVORITE time of year. MAAAAAAAAARCHHHHHHH BABAAAAAAAY!!!!!! It’s FANTASTIC! First round of ACC play has me harder than a clown at a birthday party! The Panthers need a few rounds in this tournament to show they deserve a chance to take part in the tourney. I do not expect this to be the case after their showdown with the Yellow Jackets. Honestly as a Pitt fan, I’ve been really disappointed at their willingness to show up randomly to games with both their arms and legs. Let’s hope the Panthers show they can move in the right direction without Jamie Dixon.
Predictions: Lock Ga Tech +1.5. Georgia Tech won their last match-up by 6 and the fact they are the underdogs again is WILD. YUUUUUUGE Pitt guy because of my SAINT of a mother but you gotta be realistic here. Pitt may win this game but it’s going to be a nail biter. Brooklyn is blessed with a great tournament this year and I’m thrilled to see what’s about to go down. I expect Ga Money Line to hit and the over to hit as well.
Phoenix Suns vs. Washington Wizards
Spread: -4 Wash
Moneyline: (-180 Wash, +150 Pho)
I LOVE this matchup. The CARDIAC CATS… whoops did I say that?? Well, it’s true. The former Kentucky Wildcats have turned the Suns from the laughing stock of the league to a threat. Booker and Ulis are studs. Love Booker’s energy and the kid is ABSOLUTELY destined for greatness in this league. On the other hand you got John Wall, the missile thrower, and Bradley FREAKING Beal. Two exciting superstars FINALLY making some noise. Did I hear CAT FIGHT?
Predictions: Lock the under at 226.5. The over/under is TOOOOO DAMN HIGH!!!!! Lock this guy in and call it a day. I expect some defense to be played even though Vegas is saying otherwise. I understand these players light up the scoreboard, but you gotta take into account that they are similar teams with similar stars. I expect the Suns to cover and the Washington Money Line to hit.
