5-0 this morning! Here are the rest of the picks.


  • Connecticut Huskies
  • Shabazz Napier (Streak Pick)- MCW has NOT impressed me recently at all. He just doesn't seem to be playing as well as he used to. True, he has scored over 15 points in 3 of his last 5 games, but dropping only 5 against Notre Dame at home and only 13 against Pittsburgh? Just doesn't impress me. And as he has broken out as a scorer, his assist numbers have gone way down. He has gotten 8 assists in his last 2 games, but before that he went 7 games without getting more than 7 assists, while his average is at 8.5. Meanwhile, his scoring average is at 12.4. I think we can expect about 7 points from him in the first and maybe 4 assists. That is 11 total. Meanwhile, Napier is in my opinion one of the better guards in the Big East. He can get hot from 3 at times, and in his past 4 games has made an average of 4 3's per game. That is a pretty lot. In his last game, he only had 1 3, but shot 67% from the field and dropped 22 points. In fact, with UCONN at home, he has not scored under 19 points since the Louisville game. In that game, he had 12 points and 6 assists. However, Syracuse is not as good as Louisville in my opinion. They just played St. John's and ended up winning by 17. However, it wasn't until the end of the game when they extended their lead as St. John's began to get desperate. I think Napier will have more success scoring here, especially against a zone, which will allow him to become free for some 3 pointers. Expect Napier to win EASILY in this prop with 10 first half points and 3 assists.
  • Miami (FL) Winning Margin
  • Texas Tech FTs Made
  • Atlanta Hawks
  • Brooklyn Nets
  • Detroit Pistons
  • Boston Celtics
  • Minnesota Timberwolves
  • UCONN First To 10
  • Duke DD Win (Streak Pick)- UNC just went on the road in their last game and lost to Miami by 23... Are you telling me that Duke isn't pretty much as good as Miami? Because I sure think they are pretty much the same caliber as Miami. And Miami didn't even try at the end of the game. I wouldn't be surprised to see Duke win this game by 20! UNC lost to NC State on the road by 8. NC State, although they beat Duke (it was at home though), is NOT as good as Duke. There is no way in my mind that UNC stays within ten points. The line right now is 10.5 in favor of Duke, and I wouldn't be surprised for it to continue to grow. Yes, Duke just struggled with Boston College. Again, however, that was on the road. 
  • Plumlee+Sulaimon
  • Baylor DD Win
  • Dallas Stars
  • No Duke Misses First FGA
  • Oregon Ducks
