Kansas State

Cold Streak Continues

The cold stretch continues; perhaps we need a couple of days away from the ice to get back on track. We are still floating above .500 but need to get one to hit for us. Lucky for us, there is a big game in the Big 12 that I love tonight, and I want to get right into it.

Pick Of The Day: Record 12-10-1

Kansas State +2.5 (-115)

Big game tonight in the Big 12 between Kansas State and TCU tonight. TCU is coming fresh off a whopping from Oklahoma to end their season; meanwhile, Kansas State lost to a good West Virginia team. 

This really is a toss-up of a game, but I do lean Kansas State here a lot of it as a fade against TCU. I don’t think this TCU team is as good as a lot of people thought they were to begin the season. I think Kansas State matches up well against them and will be able to dominate the paint more in this game and get those second-chance opportunities. 

In a game that is going to be close like this, give me the team that is getting the 2.5 points. Fade TCU, and let’s get ready for the tournament!

Honorable Mentions: Record: 16-15

Vanderbilt -4 (-118): Vandy is taking on a bad LSU team tonight. LSU got a win against another bad Georgia team. But Vandy having a day of rest, and LSU playing on a back-to-back. I like the better team in this game, and that is Vandy getting the cover. 

Sharks/Blues und 6.5 (-112): This game stood out to me. I expect the total to bet set at 6; in a game where both of these teams are not very good offensively and slow-paced teams, I’m surprised to see a 6.5 total. I like the under in this spot. I think both goaltenders play well today, and I expect maybe a 3-2 or 3-1 game. 

I know we’ve been ice-cold recently, but gotta stick with it. The hot streak is just around the corner, and it’s just in time for March madness. Stick with it and trust the process, and lets cash tonight!
