I like to parlay rather than do single bets, but after you swing and miss so many times, it’s almost better to just stick with doing single bets. I have a lock for today in college basketball, and although they are the favorite, it’s not by that much.
My Pick: Bowling Green (-150, via Topbet)
Now, I can’t say I’ve followed this team the entire year. But, I have of late since they have been playing some upper tier schools. They have fared quiet well in those matchups, and since losing three in a row early in the season, they look like a different team. They are 5-3 since then, and have a very nice defensive game to them. Last week they took South Florida to triple OT, where they lost by three. They would of won too, if not for Victor Rudd’s game tying 3-pointer with only 3.8 seconds left in regulation. Rudd also went bananas scoring 29 points. Now, the opponent Bowling Green will be facing is the 2-8 North Dakota Fighting Sioux. Granted the Fighting Sioux has played a pretty decent schedule, and most of their games were on the road, they have only been able to beat two non DI schools. I expect the trend to continue, and although it’s on their home court, that just means it might be a closer game. Bowling Green is the better team here, and should win in a low scoring game.
