    Interesting trend lines.

    Virginia opened as an 11 point favorite with an O/U of 121.5. The betting public seems to be on FSU and the over because the line has moved to Virginia-9 and the O/U is now 124.5

    Duke opened as a 2.5 point pick with an O/U of 162. It has moved to Duke -3.5 and the O/U is now at a stratospheric 164.5

    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 placed three bets:

    1. Duke (-3.5) to cover.
    2. Under (164.5) in the Duke vs. Carolina game
    3. Under (124.5) in the FSU vs. Virginia game

    That's what I should've done - but alas, I went double 500s on everything....so maybe I'll crack top five...maybe I'll drop below top ten.

    Duke is now -4. And still no sign of TV Teddy. Or Eades for that matter.

    youch!

    Took me a while to realize that I'd picked correctly, taking the Pus Buckets plus 3.5.

    So, Bob Green and Duke Taylor, it looks like it's between the three of us to win. Whaddaya say?

    The top ten, heading into the final game:


    Also worth noting the ACC tournament leaders:


    -Jason "my head says 7.5 is a ton of points to give FSU, especially after Duke played an emotionally and physically draining game... but !#@^@ if I am gonna bet against us in the final game before the tourney!!" Evans

    Looks like it's coming down to the over/under for tonight's game for the title. Congrats to all those in contention.

    I had the bottom drop out in the ACCT, but from Wednesday on, I was picking the opposite of those in front of me and not what I thought the outcome would be as that was the only chance I had to catch up.

    This is great fun and I relinquish my crown with much respect for the winner. I'll be back at it next year to reclaim.

    I say I'm playing to win! Duke (-8) and the Over (146.5) are my choices.

    On betting

    Picking a team that's an underdog is not betting against the fave, it's betting the spread, I bet unc plus last night and under and completely enjoyed the outcome.
    The last 3 weeks of the season I've bet the fave and points, mostly. I've thought that was the value bet. I struggled with o/u (50%, or so), so i backed off.
    tonight I have little feel for the game, but I think Zion's motivated and our team is, but that's a lot of points. I can still lose tonight and Duke survives the 1st weekend and is seeded in the East, I'm going to DC!!

    Jason, thx!! We'll meet some day!!
    Good luck all!

    After languishing in something like 11th through 15th position throughout the season, I have rallied to 6th...a chance to maybe move into top five tonight. Early in the year I was at 60% for ATS bets but below 50% for OU bets...so I started betting only 100 or 200 on the OUs. Now I'm doing better on OU than ATS...I left a lot of points on the table by betting low wagers on OU the last month.
