Sonny Guys, What's up? It's Caleb coming to you guys again.
On this Wednesday, the 11th of March, Just a quick little rundown of how we did last night we went for and three of her own our picks for and one in the in college basketball last night.
They're, um, a poor owing to an M B.
Not as good. Um, they're in the N b a.
Um, so pretty decent.
Hopefully, we'll do better tonight.
We've got some more championship games going on.
Pretty excited about that.
Um, I'm a contributor for the Unwrapped Sports Network.
Um, you could give them a follow on Twitter, which is at unwrapped sports God and give them a follow my personal twitter handles at sea hs Know, if you feel like giving me a follow is well on the Twitter machine, Um, I'm just gonna start off with you guys today with some sporting news that went down on my happy 27th birthday to Anthony Davis.
With the Lakers on some other stuff happening, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have seemed like they're going all in on Tom Brady.
Um, I don't understand why doesn't make very much sense to me, but we'll see how that plays itself out.
Looking like Tampa Bay might let J J Miss explore free agency.
Um, some other news as well.
The big news, of course today that everybody is really freaking out about.
And ah, it's been having them over the past couple of days.
Is this Ah Cove in 19 or Corona virus stuff going around? The NCWO just came out probably about 30 minutes to an hour ago.
Um, really unfortunate, with some real unfortunate news that they will not be having fans attend any of their D one men's or women's tournaments.
I'm very unfortunate for those who have already purchased tickets as well as those who were planning to go, um, like myself, I was planning on going to Tampa tow, watch my nose playing the 1st 2 rounds.
That was most likely where they were gonna end up.
Unfortunately, I will not no longer be able to do so.
Um, and if we made it to the final Four US plane and go to Atlanta and I want no longer be able to do that, either, I'm pretty bummed about it.
um, there's a bunch of disputes going on.
I don't think it's that serious.
In my opinion, um, it's immune deficient People who are immune deficient have health problems.
Already elderly things of that nature.
We've seen a lot of deaths and from the elderly, not a whole lot.
There's not been that many deaths for the reported cases that there are the everyday every year.
Flu, um, has more deaths and more cases across the United States, as well as a bunch of other viruses.
And sickness is so.
I don't really understand the whole pandemic and freak out about it all.
If your success, if you're susceptible to this virus, you're an elderly person or you haven't moved immune.
If you're deficient in your immune system in any particular way, you already have an illness.
In my opinion on don't put yourself in that situation.
Um, I'm a healthy young person.
Um, I feel like if I if I go somewhere, I am taking that risk anyways.
But I feel like I'm a very healthy young person that I'd be able to go, um, have a good time.
If I end up sake, I end up sick, but I have a five.
I'm very young person, and I can get healthy over time.
Um, so I don't really understand why they're casing it for everybody.
Ah, best interest of everybody.
Players, fans, everybody involved workers, everything like that.
Um, but I don't think it is as big of a deal is.
Everybody's making it seem, um, if you feel free to disagree with me, go ahead.
Um, I would love to have a conversation about that with you.
Um, a big thing here for the devil, eh? Is that, um I Is that their march, Matt in the March Madness? The tournaments are there big for the incident.
Relates there. Big money grabber.
They make a bunch of money from tickets from concessions and memorabilia and peril and everything like this.
It's one of their big money grabbers for the perhaps their largest.
Um, so I don't expect them to cancel it.
I know that is probably on the table for them.
I do not foresee them canceling the tournaments because of that reason, they will lose a large trunk of their profits and revenue there with the incident delay.
So I don't expect that to happen, but I am pretty bummed out about, um, no fans being able to attend.
However, I understand that it is in the best interest of all parties involved.
Um, that was pretty much the main news.
Any other news that came out wasn't really much to talk about.
That's the big stuff going on today.
Um, I know that, um, Texans in one of their cornerbacks, um, who's been there pretty pretty long time, have agreed to split ways.
And so he contest free agency.
Um, and there's just been a slow news like that beyond the day.
But what Everybody is really paying its engine two is this ah Corona virus information.
And what's going on with that? Um, I know there's been, um, there's a college basketball tournament for for teams.
You don't get into the n i T or the CW tournament.
They have canceled that, um, the TBL.
So the basketball league, which is a new start up league, they're canceling this next week's games, and they are also not gonna, um, to finish out the season.
They're just gonna have ah, a one tournament, and, uh, whoever wins that all wins the whole thing.
It's just really sad ending for all these sports.
Um, things going on.
I know a bunch of different music festivals are being moved.
Postpone Bunch of ST Patty's days things and Ireland there canceled.
Ones that hand Chicago were canceled just all around this Corona Viruses just shaking down the entire globe.
Um, anyways, besides that, let's go ahead and jump into our NC double a place for tonight.
Um, I've got a good chunk.
Probably about seven.
Um, picks in college basketball is, well, some extra place for you guys as well.
Strap up, strap in and get ready to go.
Ah, Alex just brought up my you.
I see the University of Illinois Chicago play yesterday.
I have been writing them for about three weeks.
And then they loved their very experienced team, and they play very well in march.
But unfortunately, last night, they were not able to ah, um when or cover the spread when they played northern Kentucky.
And, well, unfortunately, not beginning one of those automatic qualifying bids to the tournament, I really wanted to buy you.
So I'm actually really undeveloped because I had told everybody that I was gonna buy a USC basketball jersey if they won again.
Unfortunately, they did not. They broke my hearts.
Um, I was very, very bummed out about that one last night.
It, uh, hit me real hard.
Let's just say that by the first game on tap for tonight, guys is gonna be the Georgia Bulldogs taking on the old Miss Rebels.
This is in the SEC, the first round of the S E C championship there in Nashville, Tennessee.
Um, and also the SEC chairmanship put out a thing yesterday asking for those who are attending the SEC tournament to try and help those Tennessee or those Middle Tennessee civilians who lost, um, many of things in these past weeks tornadoes to help in whatever way they can.
So there's that for you guys, but this game is gonna be on the S e c network at 7 p.m. Eastern time.
Oh, Mrs Favored by three.
Excuse me, and we're gonna take them minus and three points.
Um oh, miss b U g et So Georgia on the road by 10 and the loan meeting between these through this season, Georgia is Oh, and five against the Spread and their last five games in March.
They're not playing well when it comes down to it.
And they're just three and seven against the spread in their last 10 games versus a team with a losing record, which Ole Miss does Ole Miss, um, and George Yard near the bottom of the sec.
Here, Um oh Mrs Nine and four against the Spread in their last 13 games.
So they've been playing decent against the Spread and Georgia lost three of their last four games, and those last two losses that they had came by double digit points.
So they have not played well when it comes down to the nitty gritty and Ole Miss has won two out of their last three coming into this game.
So I feel confident taken.
Oh, Miss minus three on a neutral floor.
Moving on, guys.
We're gonna go to Ah, Iowa State and go to the Big 12.
Iowa State taking on Oklahoma State in the Big 12 championship.
This game is on ESPN you tonight at 7 p.m.
Oklahoma State is favored in this first round match up by six and 1/2 points, and we're gonna take Oklahoma State minus two, is six and 1/2 points.
I like this play lot tonight.
Um, I was State is Owen five against the spread and their last five games as an underdog of between 0.
5 and six and 1/2 points, which is right where this line is laying.
Um, Oklahoma State is for and one against the spread in their last five games as a favorite, so they've been playing very well in their favorite in games.
Iowa State has lost three straight games and five out of their last six.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma State has won three straight games and won four out of their last five games overall.
And I was State is Owen, 11 on the road this season and one and two at neutral sites this season, and they're only when coming on the road and that neutral sites this season was against Bama and that game was over three months ago towards in the beginning of the season.
So I don't expect that to play out well for Iowa State here as well, and I was status still dealing with a bunch of injury problems.
Of course, how a burden their main player and who runs that team pretty much has been out for the majority of season.
He's out still, um, Bolton, this question, but with a concussion and then also one of the other players.
Nixon is questionable with an ankle injury.
So even if those two other guys do come back, they're not gonna be 100% obviously.
So go ahead and give me Oklahoma State minus six and 1/2 on a neutral floor here, Um, moving on to our third game.
We have Boston College heading to Notre Dame are not heading to excuse me.
Taking on Notre Dame and Charlotte are in North Carolina there.
This games on ESPN, two at 7 p.
Eastern time and Notre Dame's favored by nine.
And this is one of my lower picks guys who don't take too much of this.
This one all depends on the health of a couple of B C's players, but I like Notre Dame minus nine.
If the's players air out, we've already heard one of them being rolled out.
It's up to the other 21 if they're gonna play or not.
So keep an eye on both of the Hamilton brothers is what I'm pretty much telling you here.
But other than that, Popovich is out for BC there big man down low.
So I expect moody toe have a good game with him being out.
Um, NBC is just one and four against the spread in their last five games overall, Um, we saw Ford Estate had, like, a 16 point spread against BC in the last regular season game.
Um, of the of the season and four states still covered that 16 point spread.
Um, and that's obviously without those three players being there.
But force that usually doesn't keep gate or blow teams out necessarily percent, no matter how good they good or bad, they are eso um Well, see, I think Boston College would probably keep it close.
Um, probably unless he's all three players air out.
And then I expect every day to really put it on here.
Um, moving on to the fourth game for you guys.
It's gonna be Vanderbilt taking on Arkansas.
Another game there in Nashville, Tennessee, in the S E C championship.
Um, this game can be seen on nine at 9 p.m.
Excuse me On the E s p e r on the S E.
C network, um, Arkansas, his favorite in this one by nine points, and we're taking them minus nine points.
Arkansas beat Vanderbilt by 20.
And the only meeting between these two this season, Um, Vanderbilt is three and 13 against the spread in their last 16 neutral site games as an underdog.
So as an underdog, they do not tend to cover the spread on a neutral site floor.
Arkansas is eight and two against the spread in their last 10 games versus Mandy's, too.
They've been playing Danny very well, and Mason Jones for Arkansas is gonna be the difference maker in this game.
I expect him to have a big game here in a big time match up, and Vandy has the worst defense in the S S e c, which is not gonna be good for them as Arkansas Rack has racked up at least 86 points and three out of their last four games.
So, like I said, Mason Jones running that offense really sparks them and get some going.
So expect Arkansas to really Ah, get after it here against Vanderbilt, even though it is in Nashville.
Vanderbilt right there.
It's on on Vandy's home for um, so I expect Ah, good Vanderbilt Crow crowd that probably show up, but I don't expect them to really have much of a impact on this game as a whole.
Uh, moving on to our fifth game.
We have Kansas State taking on Texas Christian University and TCU.
Ah, this game is on ESPN us at 9 p.
Eastern time and teach youse favored by two here, and we're gonna take them minus those two points.
TCU won both the matchups between these two teams this year.
Kansas State is oh, and six against the spread in their last six neutral site games.
They're gonna spread, no matter if their favorite or not.
Um, Kansas State is also just one in 10 on the road this year and Owen four on neutral floors.
So they're not playing good on the road and they do not play well when they're on a neutral for with the different team.
And there's not gonna be enough help first need so Kansas State's May put main player is Ah, Sneed, and he put up like 30 points in their last game, Um out.
But there's not a now enough behind him in terms of other players on the team that really help him out.
So TCU did struggle down the stretch here in Big 12 play, but they still have Kansas State's number of this season, and I expect that to continue here and especially with it being tournament time, I expect to see you, maybe to pick it up a little bit instead of just slacking down down the stretch.
Um, another one of my favorite games tonight is gonna be North Carolina taking on the Syracuse Orange This games on ESPN two tonight at 9 p.m.
UNC is favored in this one by three.
We're gonna take them minus three points.
Um, you and C one the only meeting between these two teams this year by 13 points.
North Carolina is for and one against the spread and their last five games overall.
So very good there.
And Syracuse is 03 and one against the spread in their last four neutral site games.
So not good for Syracuse coming here, um, to North Carolina and playing pretty much a home game for North Carolina.
Chapel Hill is only about an hour away from where they put the A C. C tournament.
So expect a good showing for you and see fans here, just like they were last night against the pit team.
And, um, not against Pitt.
Excuse me? Um, I forget who they played, but they had a good showing for their game.
And UNC is completely healthy now.
We saw how that works for them last night.
They played very well.
They blew out their team, so I expect much of the same.
Not necessarily blowout, but a much better North Carolina team than we've seen all year.
And Syracuse is last five.
A CC wins came against the lower SEC teams, particularly the bottom four teams of the A. C. C.
I'm not sure I haven't looked, but, um, I think that might include North Carolina.
Um, well, it probably didn't, um, considering the only meeting between these two teams was North Carolina winning.
So, yeah, Syracuse has did not be North Carolina this year and their last five a CC ones came against the bottom four teams in the conference.
So Syracuse not looking good at this time of year.
So go ahead and give me Ah, the Tar Heels.
Ahh! At a suede a home game.
209 for giving me a follow. Go ahead and shoot you one back.
I appreciate everybody who comes in here and follows me and enjoys my picks on a daily basis.
So I give you guys a follow back.
I really appreciate it.
Um, our next game is gonna be you TSA taking on the University of Alabama Alabama Birmingham.
So you Abie here this games on ESPN.
Plus, if you're subscribed with them and is on at 9:30 p.
Eastern time, you a bee's favorite by two.
And we're taking them being favored by to hear these two teams split the season series.
That doesn't worry me too much.
Here, you TSA is just one and four against the spread in their last five games overall and are also just own five against the spread in their last five neutral site games.
So those trends are going way in our direction there for this game.
Meanwhile, U A B is a solid six and one against the spread in their last seven neutral site games for no against the spread in their last four games as a favorite, and five and two against the spread in their last seven games in March.
Those trends greatly even more.
Push this in our favor here tonight with you a B on you.
TSA has lost four out of their last five games, and all of those games they lost were against the spread losses as well.
You a B 12 out of their last three games overall.
And you, you baby, is pretty much just the better team in this one.
Expect them to cover the two points here in this ah conference tournament here.
Some extra NC double a place for you guys Tonight is gonna be our and they are gonna be Excuse me.
Georgetown plus three and 1/2 f i u minus two.
Indiana minus 14.
They're playing Nebraska.
Nebraska just dismissed a bunch of players and suspended them.
And so Nebraska actually brought in two football players to play for them in this game.
So I feel confident taking Indiana minus 14 I like Stanford minus 10.
And Colorado minus nine.
Obviously, with these higher spread games, these are conference tournament games.
So they're not always the most easy to kind of grab onto, because conference games or closer.
So take it for what they're worth with those higher.
Um, there's higher spreads there.
Um, in an MBA tonight, I only like to, So I'm not gonna dive too deep into him.
But I do like Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma City Thunder minus three year minus three and 1/2 tonight, that's gonna be against the Jazz is gonna be a good game.
But I expect okay, See, with how they're playing recently to go and get the wind being at home.
And then I also like the 70 Sixers minus 11 versus Detroit, 76 years at home.
Detroit looks like a D league team.
Um, I know the 76.
There's still don't have indeed, Simmons or Josh Richardson.
Although I know Joshua, you're certain and beat are questionable.
I'm not sure if they're coming back tonight, but I still think the 76 year squad is better than this Detroit team.
And with them being at home, give me the 11 points.
Um, that's it for today.
Guys are a lot of college games.
Hopefully we do well in them.
Best of luck, Thio.
