    Today's games:

    Saturday
    [34]Virginia Tech (8-6) (-3) hosts [36]Louisville (8-6) (1:00, CBS)
    [44]Miami (7-7) (-8) hosts [80]Boston College (6-8) (2:00, ACCNE)
    [88]Wake Forest (3-12) (+2) hosts [29]Notre Dame (6-8) (3:00, ACCNE)
    [16]Clemson (9-5) (-14) hosts [124]Georgia Tech (4-10) (3:00, ACCNE)
    [234]Pittsburgh (0-15) (+18) hosts [1]Virginia (13-1) (4:00, ESPNU)
    [3]Duke (10-4) (-13) hosts [45]Syracuse (7-7) (6:00, ESPN3)
    I went with the standard Virginia under and Duke over even though Virginia was over last time out and Duke has been under the past three games. That's why they call it gambling. Virginia Tech is playing good basketball and Louisville is not so the Hokies at home (-4) seems solid.

    More like play to humiliate... you are almost 5000 fake bucks in the lead at this point. But, I do admire you for not resting on your big lead. By betting it gives the rest of us a chance to catch you. Thanks!
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I am 4-1 so far with the Over in the Duke game left. Virginia Tech let me down.

    I was surprised to find this thread had slipped to Page 3 so I'm bumping it back to the top. The last week of the regular season is upon us so the end of this contest is in sight. There are three games tonight and I've made a wager in each one:

    Pitt at Notre Dame - Under 135.5
    Florida State at Clemson - Clemson (-3.5)
    Syracuse at Boston College - Syracuse (+2)

    Pitt/ND game started ato ND -21. It is now ND -18.5. A big swing for a game of little importance. WHY ?

    A lot of the bigger bettors liked Pitt. It's not THAT huge a move because the line is so big. Moving two and half points from 4.5 to 2 on the spread, for example, is more meaningful than moving from 21 to 18.5.

    With Colson announced as playing, line should have gone the other way. Plus it's Senior night. More importantly, Pitt is not very good.

    Sixty two points scored in the 1st half in South Bend so the Under looks good at the halfway point. Lots of basketball left to be played.

    The Under wins in South Bend. Betting the Over/Under, in games you don't care who wins, is a lot of fun. You don't cheer for Team A or Team B, you cheer for made shots (Over) or missed shots (Under). Missed shots got it done for me tonight.

    Knowledge of Colson playing against Pitt predated the line coming out. So did knowledge of Pitt not being very good and it being ND's Senior Night. They were all priced into the line already.

    If I had to take a stab in the dark at what the big bettors were thinking (and big bettors don't have to be sharp, but most likely they were here since they're betting Pitt), it was that
    (A) ND would mostly play zone in order to give Colson, who hadn't played in 2 months, more rest and playing time than if they had played m2m. This lowers the number of possessions, which helps both the underdog against the spread and the under on the total.
    (B) Teams often struggle to re-integrate star players

    As it turned out, the big bettors won, even though they had to sweat it out at the end of the game.

    If I go 14-0, and the NY cheese guy goes 0-14, I still canít catch him. Hi Brian, heck of a run youíve had.

    With 14 bets today, it's still a horse race. I played all 14 at 500 fake-bucks each and am praying to break even.

    P.S. There is still the tourney. We played that last year, right, Jason?

    Yup, we will do a new contest for the ACC and NCAA tourneys.

    I was destroyed this week... went from +4000 and in the thick of it to a disastrous +500. Today will probably take me into negative territory. That is what I get for trying to chase NYBri.
