    Work done. Forgive the little trash talk, there, but I've been soooo bad at this contest when I've tried it before, that I get to feel good about myself for a moment before I inevitably tank.

    Several enticing matchups today for us degenerates. I jumped on FSU (-8) to cover and West Virginia (-2.5) over Clemson. All today’s games are not yet available.

    Out. And just in time for Christmas. My shopping list just got a whole lot shorter. Thank you DBR!

    I took it earlier (at +7.5), so I lost more than you did. Fortunately, I also took the under, so I almost broke even on the game.

    Letís see if I have better luck tonight betting against Virginia. I took Providence (-2) to cover and the over (121.5 points). Itís not often I bet the over in a Virginia game. Can the Friars speed them up?

    One of us is going to win. I have UVa at +1.5. I did not bet the o/u this time out, though.

    Congratulations.

    This preseason contest is a good opportunity to fine tune ones game before the ACC season tips off. One adjustment I will be making is to stop betting against Virginia. The Hoos are sending me to the poor house.

    Thanks, but even a blind squirrel and all that. I'm not going to stop wagering, though. No Coach K slowdown with a 10-point lead for me. I'm sure I will regress to my true level soon.

    And I agree about the Hoos. I've been on the right side twice, but their performance continues to amaze. Smoke and mirrors, but it's easy to get lost in that funhouse.

    From first place, to first out. This is what I get for making exclusively max bets while on vacation (and essentially letting my kids vote on each).

    We flew in and out of Vegas, but based on this experience, I am very glad we didnít spend any time there!

    I got in at Duke+7, I actually expected the line to move down but instead itís going the other direction.

    I took Duke +8. Probably shouldíve waited to see if the spread went higher but I didnít.

    Lines for the first full day of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge are up:

    Indiana -2.5 Syracuse (146)
    Minnesota -2.5 Pitt (128)
    Purdue -11 Florida St (142.5)
    Northwestern +2 Wake Forest (144)
    Rutgers -1.5 Clemson (126.5)
    Ohio State +3 Duke (147)

    I kinda like FSU to cover, 11 points is a lot, and I love Duke against a banged up Ohio St team. I think Indiana should handle Syracuse with relative ease too.
    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.

    This was at OSU+1 yesterday. I wonder if people saw Gonzaga's letdown last night and assume the same is going to happen for us, so they're hammering OSU. For me, seeing Duke plus points feels like Christmas has come early.

    The line is OSU +3, so Duke is favored in the betting. Sorry, but Christmas is still later.

    I have Syracuse at home getting points, in a game where they need to show something after losing 2 out of 3 in Atlantis. I think the defense will be improved. I'm on Cuse in this one.

    The "+3" means that Ohio State's score +3 points must beat the Duke score. Put another way, Duke is -3, meaning you only win if Duke still wins after you subtract 3 points from Duke's score.

    And the line has moved since I posted it. It is now Duke -2 (Ohio St +2), so perhaps the Gonzaga hangover does have folks worried about how we will perform.
