We have still been on just a really bad cold stretch, getting in my head, and need to just go back to the wagons that I trust. That’s what we need to do here today, the hot streak is just around the corner, and you better be ready when it gets here.

Pick of The Day: Record 12-11-1

Uconn -3.5

I love the Huskies today going up against Marquette. Marquette is an overrated team who needed a crazy 2nd half-comeback to pull out an OT win against St. John’s yesterday. A lot of energy was expended in that game against an inferior opponent.

Meanwhile, the Huskies coasted to a fairly easy win against Providence yesterday, as they were in complete control pretty much the entire game. Uconn is the better team on both sides of the ball, a better-rebounding team, and they’re the hot team right now, entering today on a 6 game win streak.

I think this number is pretty clear, telling that Vegas knows that Uconn is the better team in this game, and the line is set accordingly; I think we see a pretty easy cover today for Uconn.

Honorable Mentions: 17-14

We went 2-0 on our honorable mentions yesterday. Great way to bounce back there. Let’s keep it going.

OSU + 4.5 (-112)

I think we need to start respecting OSU now. They’re playing some terrific basketball right now; they’re hungry and fighting for their postseason lives, whatever slim chance they still have. Them getting 4.5 here is a sport I love for them.

Texas A & M – 1 (-112)

I love the Aggies here. This is pretty much a pickem game against an Arkansas team that played last night and almost blew it to Auburn. I think the Aggies are riding hot off their win against Alabama, and I just think that Texas A&M is simply the better team here. The line does scare me a little bit, but nothing to keep me off the Aggies here.

Memphis -5.5 (-112)

Memphis is laying 5.5 here, coming off a heartbreaking loss against Houston at home on a buzzer-beater. They played a very solid, physical game against the best team in the country right now. I think Memphis plays with a chip on their shoulder today, and I think they come out with a commanding win against UCF.

Enjoy the games today! Let’s cash it and get this hot streak going.
