    Last year was a disaster. If there is any good news, at one point I was down 54 units and cut it to under 20. On second thought, that's not exactly good news. Results are here: http://www.therxforum.com/showthread...e=9&highlight=


    I'm going back to my old way of picking games. I'll try and post a brief write up when I can. Constructive criticism is welcomed. GL to everyone this season.

    11/11/2016 (0-0, +0 units)

    Marquette Golden Eagles -1 (-110), 2 units:
    A lot of experience in the backcourt that Vandy cannot match. Look for Fisher to take a step forward for Marquette this year and for Reinhardt to be a nice additional weapon for them.

    Rhode Island Rams -18 (-110), 1 unit: One of the best backcourts in the nation with Matthews returning. Martin is a double-double waiting to happen. Dartmouth too inexperienced and not athletic enough to keep up with one of my favorite sleeper teams this year.

    Michigan State Spartans -1.5 (-110), 1 unit: Harris is the difference in this one. In a few months Arizona is going to be dangerous but until their freshman get it figured out and they resolve all their eligibility issues, I'll go with Sparty.

    Kansas Jayhawks -6 (-110), 1 unit:
    Another game that if it were happening 2 months from now I would likely be on the other side. As long as the Jayhawks control Bryant they should win this game. Talented, experienced backcourts win games early in the year and that's exactly what Kansas has.

    11/14/2016 (2-2, +.8 units)

    Charleston Cougars -5 (-110), 1 unit:
    Experienced team making a very small journey to face a Chanticleers squad that only returns 2 starters and does not have the size to match up with the Cougars.

    Xavier Musketeers -15 (-110), 1 unit:
    Getting some line value here as Xavier struggled in their first game. This is an excellent team and while Buffalo will compete in the MAC this year, they're not ready to face an angry, focused Musketeer squad.

    Villanova Wildcats -3 (-110), 2 units:
    Nova has too much guard play and too many big bodies to throw at the Boilermakers. Mackey is a tough environment but not for a deep, experienced Wildcat team.

    Princeton Tigers +4 (-110), 1 unit: Experienced, deep, patient team. They will make you play at their pace and while the Cougars have some talent it is very inexperienced. In a month or two, give me the Cougars but tonight, give me the Tigers.

    Green Bay Phoenix -2 (-110), 1 unit: Stoudamire is trying to turn the Tigers into an up tempo run and gun squad. That plays right into Darner's hand and the Phoenix have the more experienced, battle tested team.

    Vermont Catamounts +5 (-110), 1 unit: Wrong team is favored here based on name recognition. With Dunn and Bentil gone, the Friars have a lot of rebuilding to do. Catamounts return 11 players and all of them can play. They have the size to match up and the experience to not be intimidated.

    San Diego State Aztecs +10.5 (-110), 1 unit: Love Gonzaga this year, expect to see them make a deep run in the tournament. However, this Aztec team has a few things going for it. First, they have experienced, athletic guards that can really defend. Second, the whole team knows how to defend and has enough big bodies to throw at Karnowski. I don't think SDSU wins but I like getting double digits with this team.

    Winthrop in the bonus 5 minutes in. IF they stay aggressive this should be a nice half.

    SMU Mustangs -4 (-110), 1 unit: I don't trust Pitt to shoot the ball over the packed in SMU zone. Stallings also is not the best at in game adjustments so I look for the SMU D to confuse Pitt all night.

    Connecticut Huskies-6 (-110), 2 units:
    Something is very wrong with UConn. But, I think that gives us a lot of value here. They are dramatically better than LMU and in what might have been a look ahead or throw away game, we get max effort here from the Huskies.
