12/20/13 College Hoops

Picks by Buffalo66

College Hoops:
Troy ML (+139)
Pacific ML (+142)

Parlay:
Portland ML/Wyoming ML (parlay +162)


Last night was a stout kick in the nuts. Let’s try this again.

Troy faces off against Western Illinois in Utah. Both teams have similar point production but Troy shoots FTs better. Value here. I’m taking Troy ML (+139).

Princeton faces Pacific in Las Vegas. Princeton has the better resume here although both teams are 8-1. Pacific shoots FTs better and are much closer to home. I’m fading the public here and going west coast. I’m taking Pacific ML (+142).

Bradley faces Portland in Utah. So far the Braves haven’t traveled well. SMU has a tough road game in Wyoming. Larry Nance Jr. just dropped 38 in his last game for the Cowboys. I’m taking Portland ML/Wyoming ML (parlay +162).

12/19/13 College Hoops

Picks by Buffalo66

College Hoops:

Utah State -13.5/USC ML (parlay +259)

Duke ML/Dayton ML/Clemson ML (parlay +189)

Now that Thursday football has left us behind, we can concentrate on basketball. Duke plays UCLA at MSG. The Blue Devils are a deeper team should the game get foul happy. Dayton hosts Iona. The Flyers may run away tonight. Clemson travels to Auburn. This game might be close, but Clemson defense and FT shooting should carry them. I’m taking Duke ML/Dayton ML/Clemson ML (parlay +189).

Utah State is hosting Western Illinois which should be a mismatch. USC plays a road game at Long Beach State. I think the coaching is the difference here. I’m taking Utah State -13.5/USC ML (parlay +259).

12/18/13 College Hoops

Picks by Buffalo66

College Hoops:
Drexel +3.5 (-102)
Massachusetts -2 (+103)


UMass travels to Ohio for a hostile road game. I don’t think there are many teams that can handle the speed and balance of the Minutemen. Plus they shoot FTs better than the Bobcats. I’m taking Massachusetts -2 (+103).

In a Big Five match-up, Drexel travels across town to take on St. Joe’s. This downplays any home court advantage for the Hawks. The Dragons are coming off an impressive road win and I think will cover here. I’m taking Drexel +3.5 (-102).

Picks by Buffalo66

College Hoops: Memphis ML (+146) and Wichita State -2 (-106)

I’m going to try and break my slide in college round ball tonight.  Florida faces Memphis at MSG in the Jimmy V classic.  This is a classic example of taking value.  I see the game as a coin flip - neutral court, similar FT shooting, Gators are better outside but the Tigers are better in transition.  Florida is favored by three.  I like Memphis because the price is too good to pass up on the money line.  I’m taking Memphis ML (+146).

Wichita State visits Alabama.  The Shockers seem undervalued versus a very inconsistent Tide.  Alabama’s FT shooting already cost me a parlay this month.  I’m taking Wichita State -2 (-106).

12/16/13 NFL and NHL

Picks by Buffalo66

NHL: Jets/Blue Jackets OVER 5.5 (+138)

NFL: Ravens +5 (+102)

I decided to go value shopping today.  Baltimore visits Detroit in a dome game.  The Ravens are only 1-5 on the road but they are decent at covering.  With a playoff birth on the line for both teams, I expect a close game. I bought this down for better value.  I’m taking Ravens +5 (+102).

Winnipeg visits Columbus in a battle of backup goalie (Montoya) versus backup-backup goalie (McKenna).  While I slightly favor the Jets, the total is the better play.  I bought this up for a better payday.  I’m taking Jets/Blue Jackets OVER 5.5 (+138).
