NBA Playoffs: Denver-Golden State Betting Board

Golden State at Denver This might be the first round series I am looking the most forward to watching. The Nuggets with their style of play and killer home numbers makes them the most intriguing team in this whole field.

NBA Playoffs: Knicks-Celtics Betting Board

Boston Celtics at New York Knicks A classic changing of the guard NBA playoff series. The #2 seed Knicks haven’t won a playoff series in 13 years, but this year a deep run in the East is expected. The Celtics, long in the tooth, somewhat banged up, wheezed into the barn as the #7 seed. But don’t forget they’re 11-4 in playoff series in the KG Era. An interesting recent trend...

NCAA National Championship Preview: Michigan vs. Louisville

The last time Michigan was in standing 40 minutes from a national title was 20 years and three days ago. That was, of course, the infamous "time out" game against North Carolina. (If you're unfamiliar - and if you are you're probably not reading this, but here goes anyway - Michigan's Chris Webber called a time out with 11 seconds remaining and the Wolverines...

Final Four Preview: Michigan vs. Syracuse

It has been 20 years since Michigan last reached the Final Four. That is, of course, if you ignore vacated records since Michigan's Fab Five had both their 1992 and 1993 Final Four appearances (and national title game appearances) wiped from the record books. Regardless, this is an exciting time in the state of Michigan because, for the first time in more than 20 years both...

Sweet 16, Thursday

A quick look and picks for the four games tonight. Miami vs Marquette. Lines, Miami -6, O/U 127 If Minnesota really wants to grab an excellent, established coach just entering his prime, they should take a hard look at Marquette’s Buzz Williams. Five years on the job, five tournaments. He won a share of the Big East title this year. This is his thrid straight trip to the Sweet...

NCAA Tournament: Friday Round Of 64

Moving onto today’s actions. Some preview-ish type of thoughts: ****The Marshall Henderson Show hits the NCAA Tournament this afternoon. Here’s the deal with Henderson. He’s a good player, not a great player, who can light up the nets and his mouth, bringing an excitement to the gym that was sorely needed across the SEC Basketball landscape this winter. When he’s on, like...

Whenever somebody began writing out a formula in the same area on the blackboard the last person had used, he would always bellow “Same Spot Syndrome” admonishing the student as if...

Big 10 Picks: First Weekend Of October Edition

Our Big 10 picks column had a nice debut last week, going 3-2. The dumb move was belligerently sticking with Minnesota. The smart move was taking a risk on Penn State while the line moved against them all week. We’ll take as many winning records as we can get. I’ll have a full Saturday card later. But, for now, here’s who were siding with in tomorrow’s five Big 10 league...

Thursday Night Football: Breaking Down the Props, Trojans at Utes

(Earlier today: A look at the Conference USA and Sun Belt games also being played tonight. And, hey, its NFL Thursday too, so we broke down the Cards/Rams props. Enjoy the football tonight.) A year ago, Utah and USC played to one of the craziest outcomes many of us have ever seen. In the Coliseum, the travelling Utes in the closing seconds were lining up to kick a possible game...

Thursday Night Football: Breaking Down The Props, Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams

As the second quarter of the NFL season begins, we have a huge swing game in the suddenly resurgent and physical NFC West. And here’s the kicker: The game doesnt involve the San Fransisco 49ers. Instead it’s the unbeaten and Kevin Kolb-led Arizona Cardinals taking to the road, trying to stay perfect, against the 2-2 Rams. This was supposed to be a 49er runaway in this division...

Thursday Night Football: A Pair Of Mid Major Dances

My twitter timeline is filled this morning with talk of some political debate, where there isnt a right answer, and arguments over the AL MVP race, where there isnt a wrong answer. Has everyone forgotten about football season? Let’s focus people. Between the NFL and college, we have four games tonight. FOUR GAMES!! ON A THURSDAY!!! ‘MERICA!! Now, none are MACtion games, but we...

The JCB Poll Is Out. Here’s Our Current Top-10

I opted out of the Blog Poll this year. I admire and respect the efforts the bloggers are going through to create their own poll. And I was honored to be included in the voting for two years. But, I hated filling out the ballot every week and trying to parse who deserved the final five or spots more. At times, I couldnt even find 25 teams I wanted to even vote for. More than anything...

GameDay: Chicago at Dallas

We’re coming off a successful double Book It from Thursday’s Baltimore-Cleveland game. Let’s keep that momentum going into tonight’s Cowboys-Bears clash. While I’m sure no one has ever said this, the Cowboys – “America’s Team” – are seemingly always enjoyable to watch while the Bears tend to only be fun to watch if you live in Illinois. So, let’s dub this the...

Monday Night Football: Breaking Down The Props, Bears at Cowboys

Monday Night Football presents Bears-Cowboys this week. Now that sounds fun. If Dallas wins, they join the Eagles at 3-1 atop the NFC East standings. If Chicago wins, they join the Vikings at 3-1 atop the NFC North standings. The Vikes will be alone if first place at the quarter mark should the Bears fold down in Jerry World. Who had that before the season started? As for tonight...

College Football Week 5: The Official Afternoon Card

I wrote about the Big 10 and my picks for the conference already. Three Big 10 games in today’s noon window. This might not be the infomercial the league wants. We’ll see.  The true marquee game during the noon window is Baylor visiting West Virginia. The hometown Mountaineers are 11-point favorites in Big 12 opener for both. For WVA, it’s their debut in the conference...

Tonight we have an actual conference game in the Pac-12 between Stanford, slayer of USC and owner of one of the more impressive, landmark wins of the season, and upstart Washington.

Thursday Night Football: Breaking Down The Props, Browns at Ravens

Tonight had such great potential, what with replacement refs and the Cleveland Browns on the field at the same time. But, no, the NFL and the real refs just had to settle their squabbles in time for tonight. After three weeks of chaotic deliberations of the rule book, the real refs will take the field. I feel a bit robbed. I was looking forward to a team being granted four timeouts...

The Shifting Odds: Michigan, Notre Dame & Oklahoma

Before moving on to the Week Five slate, lets do what we always do this time of week. Check out the future lines and see if there’s been any adjustments of note. Last week, I took at look at the shifting odds in the Big 10 for some of the games the rest of fall. For the most part, those lines have remained steady. The games this week have moved a bit. MSU was -1.5 over Ohio State...
