    ND -22 Hampton
    Louisville - 7 N Ky
    St. Mary's - 16 SE Louisiana
    USC - 18 UNC Asheville
    OK St - 10 1/2 Florida Gulf Coast
    Baylor - 15 Wagner

    All big HOME favorites, playing just 2 days after being disappointed, they will not be jacked up at home against mostly small time teams, do any of the dogs have some "game"? Some of the dogs are great distances.

    Any thoughts?

    I have found it wise to go against the teams that thought they deserved to be in the dance... first game out, but not every game, need to be a bit selective with matchups and travel.

    I was thinking the same thing but some of the dogs were expecting to go dancing too. I know Wagner and FGCU lost their conference championship and may have the same kind of hsngover/disappointment. In the case of the two teams I mentioned, bother were faves (wag 9.5 and FGCU 6.5 I think) and we're beaten handily.

    In terms of having something to prove though, you'd think the smell school players would "bring it" a bit more.

    Maybe St Mary's as a small school would have the least home course advantage? They're always overvalued anyway...

    Yes Wagner and FGSU can play the game, are credible teams, and even though they are disappointed, too, they get a crack at "name" teams that will inspire them, those two seem to be good plays.

    I always shoot myself in the foot with these kind of bets. I thought they would be money.

    The teams that were passed over were PISSED OFF, not disappointed, lackluster, flat.
