Can’t Miss Bets: NCAA 3-14-21

Whew, what a day, folks. I knew from the start of the day that nothing was going to go right. I pulled the ultimate NCAA gambling no-no right away Saturday. Knowing full and well that there were injury concerns for the Ohio State-Michigan game, I still let my guard down and didn’t pay attention to the news until 10 minutes before tipoff when I finally went inside and sat down to watch the game and saw the news. As bad as I wanted to swap to Ohio State, I thought of the two readers who followed my advice. The only option I had was to go down with the ship. (Congrats, me, for being a stand up guy)

All I saw throughout the day was the smoke coming from my wallet, where my money once was. Every Arkansas turnover and terrible defensive possession by Wichita State just amplified the smoke. At one point not even my dog wanted to sit next to me because of the stench of losing bets. Nothing hurts more as a gambler than coming off a red hot day, just to go cold the follow day. But if it were easy, everyone would be rich, amirite? Still, plus money on the weekend, so suck it haters.

Expectations for Today

As we all know, the NCAA slate today is small. The majority of teams already having been eliminated or have played their conference championship games. The few games left are all showing competitive lines set early on, so finding value is extremely hard. Today is going be a small list of bets as. We should all preparing for the NCAA tournament so that when it starts, we’re ready to dominate.

The buisness part of the blog

Illinois: -4.5

I’ve seen this line shopped around up to 5.5, but at this moment my book has it listed as 4.5. That is what we’re rolling with. Ask yourself a question real quick. Is there a hotter team in college basketball than Illinois right now? I don’t think so. Illinois coming in here is firing on all cylinders and are coming off a huge double digits win over Iowa. I mentioned this last article for Ohio State, but the Young injury leaves a big hole for them. Although Liddell has been an animal each of the two games these teams have met up, the defense, and rebounds, Young brought to the team is something that is going to be greatly missed in a game against that mutant of a man Kofi Cockburn.

The Illini have a walking bucket in Ayo who should, and likely does, terrify every opponent they will face. I see the Illini putting even more of a focus on Liddell, and Washington Jr. than previously, because outside of those two, bulk scoring is hard to come by for OSU. The over powering Illini offense is rolling right now, and I don’t see Ohio State stopping them. Look for Illinois to dominate on the boards, and score bunches. I’m going heavy on this game and will be taking Illinois 1h (up to -3.5), and game (up to 6). 3 units on game spread, and 2 units on 1h spread.

LSU: +5

I was extremely bullish on LSU yesterday against Arkansas, but this matchup against Alabama is much more favorable for the Tigers. It does not take an analytical mind to figure out that LSU is horrific at defensive rebounding but the part that gives me confidence in this game is the perimeter defense that LSU is capable of. The Tigers come into this game inside the top 15 in the NCAA at perimeter defense, which when going up against a primarily perimeter centric offense gives me optimism.

Now some of you may look back to the multiple double digits losses Alabama handed LSU this year in conference play. That factor, albeit important, is not something to get hung up on. With the loss of the Crimson Tides Josh Primo the already small rotation has gotten smaller. Both teams have potent offenses, but when a piece of the puzzle is missing, you aren’t going to get the full picture, and we saw that from Bama Saturday.

I see LSU containing the Bama backcourt, and not allowing many wide open threes, and then taking advantage of turnover opportunities. LSU defense will be the key to this game, and as long as LSU can be competitive rebounding, they have a good chance of toppling Alabama. I don’t see this game being a run away for either side, and wouldn’t hate playing a small amount on the LSU moneyline if the odds are right, but my official pick is LSU and the points.

Things to come

In the future I’d really like to dive into the process of all things gambling. Too many times I see guys have a bad day, just like I did today, and it makes a bigger dent financially than it should because they over bet, mismanage their bankroll, and destroy the profit made the previous day. Sure, my main goal here is to give out winning bets for all two of you readers to use, but I’d be in the wrong if I didn’t at least attempt to make you better gamblers overall. So feel free to send me questions on Twitter @TCollins1012, and I’ll happily answer every question I can.

For reference, I’m not positive if my blog will be up the same night as the brackets are released, or the following day. The next blog will yet again focus on my favorite first round bets, but I also will touch on my favorite NCAA future bets based off of brackets. I’m also a giant bracket guy, so if you two readers left don’t invite me to a bracket pool, you’re no longer welcome to read my blog. Good luck going forward, let’s make some money and retire early.

  • It’s my belief that mesothelioma is actually the most deadly cancer. It’s got unusual characteristics. The more I look at it the more I am confident it does not respond like a true solid flesh cancer. In the event mesothelioma is a rogue virus-like infection, so there is the prospects for developing a vaccine and offering vaccination for asbestos uncovered people who are at high risk involving developing potential asbestos connected malignancies.

One other thing is always that individual states in the United states of america have their unique laws that will affect people, which makes it very hard for the Congress to come up with a new set of rules concerning foreclosed on house owners.

  • I figured out more a new challenge on this fat loss issue. One issue is that good nutrition is extremely vital if dieting. A tremendous reduction in junk food, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sweet foods, beef, and white-colored flour products may be necessary. Possessing wastes parasitic organisms, and toxic compounds may prevent desired goals for losing belly fat. While selected drugs in the short term solve the issue, the terrible side effects usually are not worth it, and so they never present more than a short-lived solution.

  • My experience working for Consumer Genius was extremely disappointing. Although I completed all my job responsibilities and worked hard, I haven’t received my salary for four months. Despite trying to contact the company several times, I haven’t received a response or any explanation for the delay. It’s not only unethical but also illegal to withhold employees’ salaries. This conduct reflects poorly on the company’s professionalism and respect towards their workforce. I strongly advise anyone against working for this company or considering any business dealings until they show a genuine commitment to treating their employees with respect and paying their salaries on time.

The particular sensors connected with some camcorders change in in the area of contrast, while others utilize a beam of infra-red (IR) light, particularly in low lumination. Higher standards cameras at times use a combination of both systems and probably have Face Priority AF where the camera can ‘See’ some sort of face as you concentrate only upon that. Thanks for sharing your thinking on this blog.

  • I have mastered some new issues from your web-site about pc’s. Another thing I’ve always assumed is that computer systems have become something that each household must have for many reasons.

An innovative method to complete many of these tasks is a notebook computer. These personal computers are mobile ones, small, highly effective and lightweight.

  • According to my study, after a in foreclosure home is offered at a sale, it is common for your borrower to be able to still have a remaining balance on the personal loan. There are many loan providers who try and have all rates and liens repaid by the subsequent buyer. Having said that, depending on specified programs, rules, and state regulations there may be some loans that are not easily solved through the transfer of lending products. Therefore, the duty still rests on the client that has got his or her property foreclosed on. Thank you sharing your thinking on this weblog.

Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include weight reduction, severe deep breathing trouble, temperature, difficulty eating, and irritation of the face and neck areas.

  • In line with my study, after a property foreclosure home is offered at a sale, it is common for your borrower to be able to still have the remaining balance on the bank loan. There are many financial institutions who try to have all expenses and liens paid off by the next buyer. Nevertheless, depending on selected programs, polices, and state legislation there may be quite a few loans which aren’t easily sorted out through the exchange of financial products. Therefore, the duty still falls on the debtor that has acquired his or her property in foreclosure. Thanks for sharing your thinking on this site.

Self-esteem, depressive disorders, health risks, and physical abilities are disturbed in weight gain. It is possible to just make everything right and at the same time having a gain. In such a circumstance, a condition may be the offender. While an excessive amount of food and never enough physical exercise are usually responsible, common medical conditions and trusted prescriptions can certainly greatly increase size.
