Not sure if she is from Arizona, or exactly what instrument she plays, but does it really matter??? The first thing I noticed was her hat...what about you???
REVENGE is ON the table. How will it be served??? Last year, in the Elite Eight, Wisky crushed Arizona's dreams with a 64-63 heartbreaker, in OT no less. 'Zona was a number one seed and Wisky was a #2. This time, it's the opposite way around, but yet the lower seed is the favorite. Hmmmmm. FORESHADOWING??? If you're interested in the overall spread records, Arizona was 23-14 against the number, with an 8-6 mark on the road. The Badgers were 19-17-1 overall with a 9-7 record on the road. If you like to play totals, both teams had more unders than overs. The Wildcats come in with 21 unders and 16 overs, while Wisky posted 20 unders and 17 overs. It's time for the 'Cats to advance to the Final 4, so gimme half a Benjamin on Arizona. Now for a little advance scouting, a reconnaissance mission if you will. PLZ don't tell too many people just yet, but we are in LOVE with Stanford in the NIT this coming Tuesday. The line is -2 over Old Dominion, and we're gonna drop a pair of Benjamins on the Cardinal. Yea, you heard me, TWO, or as we used to tell our bookies in the old days, gimme Stanford 40 times. All my old school readers will get it right away. When we used the covert language for betting, just in case anyone was listening in, one time represented a $5 unit.
Another win/lose for me yesterday, or actually, lose/win. NC State was outplayed and OUTCOACHED by Rick Pitino and Louisville advanced to the Elite 8 with a 75-65 W over the Wolfpack. That cost me a pair of nickels. However, we made back half a Benj on our two team teaser. UCLA covered an adjusted +14.5 point spread in a 74-62 loss to Gonzaga, while Michigan State squeezed past Oklahoma, 62-58 as a +4.5 point dog on the teaser board. After doing the math, the calculator says that -$285 is the current CBB figure.
