I know some of you guys like to place some action on games. I have recently started to myself. I have been doing really well with College Basketball over the last couple months. I know it's easy for me to tell you I've done well and you probably won't believe me, but if you're interested I am (50-21) on college basketball this season.

Here are my day 1 picks:
Mich St -2 ;-D
vs.
Marquette

Butler -2.5 ;-D
vs
Old Dominion

Indiana -1.5 ;-D
vs
Gonzaga

BYU +2 Push
vs.
Xavier

Pittsburgh -10 ;-D
vs
Wright St.

Was that line before or after McNeal was confirmed out?

I was very tempted to take Wright St. +28 vs. UNC.

My head wasn't in the right place, I meant Eastern Kentucky.

i bet on BC over Texas Tech and Oral Roberts + 6.5 so im 1-1.

i also bet on villanova - 1.5 and VCU +6.5. ill check the lines again before the games start tomorrow and will probably throw a few more down.

i liked that butler game too but i couldnt get it in before the game started. i like gonzaga with an upset over indiana and the 10 points seems way too high for pitt to cover, but thats just me ;-7

I just read an article that mentioned this. Apparently, in the last 10 or 15 years (I forget what time frame they gave), dogs have covered something like 53% of the time in the first round. So if you bet all underdogs for the last 10 years you'd come out ahead. But if you discriminately bet them you could probably make that closer to 60% (at least).
