    State is at home and I'm tempted to go with the home team to cover. I've charged up many a hill with NCSU and usually I die quickly, painlessly to be buried in an unmarked grave. If State as a program is guilty of any particular failing from year to year it's that they lack patience on offense. Against UVa, that's a killer.

    I took State to cover and Pitt to cover. So bet the opposite.

    Sticking with my recent success asking "who has something to play for in this upcoming obscure slugfest", I'm going with Clemson to cover against Pitt. Much like how I felt with FSU-Miami, I think Clemson will fight hard to salvage a season that had expectations. They're not a bad team at all, they've just had a tough schedule lately, and I think they'll be ready to feast on a young team. 71-61 is roughly the score predicted by the line, and that feels higher scoring than I expect it to be, so I'm going with the under.

    UNC has been up and down this year so they're hard to predict, but they've got the shooters to punish GT's zone, aren't re-integrating a point guard, and I think Roy is great at preparing for zones, so I'm going with the cheats to exceed our margin from Saturday and beat Tech soundly.

    UVA-NCSU feels like a spanking coming up. UVA (with one inexplicable weird exception) does NOT MESS AROUND with teams they should beat. They just execute execute execute. I think they'll handle State easily, and this morning I was super surprised to see a spread of 5.5. Unfortunately for me by the time I got around to placing my bets I had to give 7. I still feel pretty good about it.

    Other than Clemson-Pitt, I'm staying away from o/u today.

    Same, and Pitt +8.5 on the road against Clemson. I also bet the under in all 3 games.

    Bold! O/U is risky. But then I see you are the freaking king of o/u picks, where you've earned almost all your internet points. Makes me feel better about the one under I did bet.

    Damn, you're right!

    Look at this line!

    O/U Picks 24-17-0 58.54% +3880 1 of 24

    So, of course it's time to come back to earth.

    Last time I checked, I had more correct picks than anybody else. Of course, I also had more incorrect picks than anybody else.

    You are the only one of the leaders who is doing better on OU than ATS....with most, it's not close....it's the OU dragging down the ATS %. You sir ARE the outlier.

    If they arenít going to cover, Iíd prefer UVA just go ahead and lose. Winning but not covering is the worst possible outcome.

    Ah yes, the hidden hell of the Degenerate contest...you can lose 'three times" in every game....

    I guess the worst outcome would be overtime making me lose the under also. With 2 PT lead and 60 seconds, I donít see how UVA can cover at this point. Unless fouling to close out.

    So can UVA win by 8 while combined scoring under 31 in overtime?

    I guess itís possible, but Salt has fouled out.

    This is the beauty of NCSU basketball. I have Va -8 and the under. No sweat, we're talking State here.

    The under 141 is looking safe with 2:22 remaining

    Is there a way to see everyoneís splits at the same time, or can we only see it one by one?
