Today's theme is basketball, and this Antonija Misura, a stud hoopster on the Croatian national team. Enjoy!!!
Bouncing over to the NBA and gonna use the Cavaliers -3 points over the Thunder. Looks like the LeBrons are finally starting to figure it out. Cleveland comes in on a red hot 5-0 run, straight up and against the spread. And the average winning margin during the streak is 15+ points per game. OKC is basically a two man team at this point, KD and Russell Westbrook, and that ain't gonna be enough to handle the Cavs. Also gonna roll into Madison Square Garden and use Duke -5 points over St. John's. The Red Storm have put together a solid 13-5 record, but against the spread, not so great, covering only one of the last six. And since the Blue Devils are gonna be out of their mind NUTS to get Coach K his 1000th victory, gotta believe that the Dookies will roll into the win column by double digits. Gimme half a Benjamin on the Cavs and another half a Benj on Duke.
Saturday started with a bang as Boise State, a -6 point favorite, grounded Air Force, 77-68, and it was worth half a Benj. Our teaser, not so good. West Virginia beat TCU, 86-85 in OT, but failed to cover the adjusted -3 point spread. It didn't matter that Georgetown covered a +7 point spot against Marquette in a 95-85 W, or that St. Joe's (+3) missed by a point, dropping a 56-52 decision to Penn. The tease cost me half a Benj, which put us on even for the day, and the calculator says that +$15 is the current CBB figure. I'M not only an ECK, I'M an APP!!!
