And Then They Were Four

Now that was an amazing weekend of basketball. Every single game on Saturday and Sunday was a barn burner. We had two games go to overtime and we also saw three number one seeds eliminated, only Virginia of all the number one seeds made it to the final four. If anyone had that in their bracket i applaud you, my bracket is DEAD and my soul was taking with Purdue somehow not covering the spread. Literally everything that could of went wrong did for them to somehow lose that game by 5.

In what was probably the game of the weekend, at least for me anyways because Duke lost. This game felt like the last two Duke played, they trailed a bit but seemed like they would pull out another one at the death. Fortunately for most us Duke haters that didn’t happen. Tom Izzo out coached Coach K in this one and the give the ball to Zion and hope for the best plan finally didn’t work out. Now we can all get off the Tom Izzo is too hard on his players theory RIGHT!!

The lines are out for both games with Michigan State at -2.5 over Texas Tech and Virginia at -5.5 against number five seed Auburn. Im still torn on these games but if i had to give a humble opinion right now i would take Texas Tech and Auburn to cover the points. Im honestly considering taking both teams moneyline for some good value. Texas Tech’s suffocating defence is something i haven’t seen in years in this tournament and it feels like it just keeps getting better the deeper into the madness we get. I also like Auburn, they just have something about them that feels like a team of destiny vibe. Im also not completely sold on Virginia and feel like they were very fortunate to get by Purdue and Carsen Edwards.

Lets take some time and gather our thoughts this week before the final four begins this weekend. I will be stuck working 12 hour shifts on a cruise ship but all y’all make sure to enjoy the last few days of what has been an amazing March Madness. Lets grind out this Monday and have a week y’all.

Digs’ Saturday College Football Picks

I’m not here to just give you winners, I’m here to tell you why they are winners so that you can decide if you want to roll with the Parlay King or not.

As always I’ve got 5 Picks for you on this beautiful Saturday with a loaded slate. Lets get into it.

  1. Indiana -2 vs Maryland, O/U 56

Indiana is coming off a bye where they were able to mend some of their injuries after a very tough stretch where they played those tough teams actually pretty well. With everything going on in the program Maryland has been a dumpster fire. Take the Hoosiers at home -2

2. Mich St vs Ohio St -4, O/U 50

Ohio State hasn’t looked great, Michigan State hasn’t looked great. I’m going to go with the not great looking team that is #10 in the nation, has more talent, and still has a ton of motivation to win out and do so in an impressive fashion to give themselves a chance at the playoffs. Hopefully Urban remembers this fact and doesn’t take his foot off the gas. Give me the Buckeyes -4

3. Rutgers +38.5 vs Michigan, O/U 47.5

This is going to be a pick that you sweat and hate yourself the entire time. All Rutgers has to do is score 10 points and don’t turn it over like 6 times and I think we will be ok. Michigan has a tendency to come out flat on the road so we will be banking on that. It is a low Over/Under for how large the spread is so there is something to read into there as well that works in Rutgers favor. Rutgers +38.5

4. Georgia vs Auburn +14, O/U 52.5

Banking on a let down from Georgia after playing back to back to back games against LSU, Florida, and Kentucky who were all ranked in the top 15 at the time they played. It’s also a let down opportunity for Georgia after they clinched a birth in the SEC championship game after winning on Saturday against Kentucky. On the other side of the ball this would be a huge win against a rival for Auburn when that is all they really have left to play for this year. Give me Auburn and the 14 points

5. Boston College +20 vs Clemson, O/U 56.5

Boston College has a very solid defense and a very solid offensive line/running game. I like them to slow the pace and try to burn some clock while running the ball effectively. Its been over a month since Clemson has played anyone good at all so lets hope a good team and a good atmosphere in BC throws them off their game a little. I’ll take BC +20

Oh and of course make sure you parlay them all. 

And if you’re feeling real fucking frisky here is a little 10 team teaser for shits and gigs
