Sunday, March 01, 2020 Xavier vs. Georgetown (NCAAB) - 2:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: 2/-105 Georgetown Rating: 8* Mike's Big East Beast Of The Day (WIN) The X-Men AREN'T their dominating selves like they enjoyed an average of 27 wins a season between 2016 & 2018.They're flirting with about 21-23 this season unless they go to a Final 4 in the NCAA's which I don't see. Their 6'7" forward Naji Marshall will be playing hurt for a team that's gone 2-2 SU the past 4 as well as compiling a 4-5 record in true road games. Georgetown is MORE than capable of winning this one outright as they've already beaten Creighton @ this venue last month. I'm expecting 7'0" center Omer Yurtseven to be back & contribute along with guard Mac McClung who should be a go after 2 games of rest. HC Patrick Ewing should have his troops motivated & a LIVE dog here as they look to qualify for their 1st appearance since 2015 in the NCAA's. Let's make way to Capital One Arena to play the GEORGETOWN HOYAS (buy to +4) as my 8* Big East Beast Of The Day! Colorado vs. Stanford (NCAAB) - 6:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -130 Stanford Rating: 8* Mike's Sunday Night CBB Bailout Play (WIN) There's just a few key area to cover when figuring the pointspread winner for this one. No. 1 is the fact that this Buffaloes' team looks like it's peaked against the number. They've lost 6 of their past 7 ATS & Iet's go with the flow until proven otherwise. Second, HC Jerod Haase & Co. are looking to execute sweet revenge for an earlier 81-74 loss @ Colorado on Feb. 8th. I look for floor general Tyrell Terry to produce one of his "A" games as the Trees get it done. Jetting to the Maples Pavilion to put up an 8* on the STANFORD CARDINAL on the ML as my Sunday Night CBB Bailout Play! Indiana vs. Illinois (NCAAB) - 2:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Total: 133/-110 Over Rating: 9* Mkike's Sunday CBB Totality (WIN) I'm not a big totals player but I certainly won't pass up major value when I see it! Putting together their overall offensive averages & you come up to a 141 number. When you take into account the home & away averages, then the average drops to just 138. Average it out & you come up with a 139 1/2 average. We'll gladly drop this to 131 (off the buy) & I think we have something brewing! Let's finish the tandem (played Indiana + the points) as we travel to the State Farm Center to play OVER 131 as my 9* Sunday CBB Totality! Indiana vs. Illinois (NCAAB) - 2:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: 6/-110 Indiana Rating: 8* Mike's CBB Sunday Slumber Party Play (WIN) I'm feeling Illinois comes into this fat, happy & relaxed as they look for their 20th SU win. However, when we look @ the OTHER side we find HC Archie Miller & Co. over eager to erase the bad taste in their mouths from an ugly loss to Purdue on Thursday. The BIG think is he has a healthy bunch of Hoosiers coming in with 3 straight wins & 7 out of the last 8 in this series. This includes a decisive 92-74 victory last season. 56% of the money is coming in on Illinois which suits us just fine. My bottom line points out that 6'9" Trayce Jackson-Davis should step it up & rule down low @ the glass. With the dog getting the cash 3 out of the last 4 in this series, we'll call that number again as we go to the State Farm Center to hop on the 18-10 SU INDIANA HOOSIERS (buying to + 7 1/2) as my CBB Sunday Slumber Party Play! Saturday, February 29, 2020 Penn State vs. Iowa (NCAAB) - 12:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -180 Iowa Rating: 8* Mike's 8* Home Avenger (WIN) HC Patrick Chambers & his Nittany Lions are showing some wear & now have to face a Fran McCaffrey team thirsty for revenge for the 89-86 PSU win on Jan. 4th back @ the Bryce Jordan Center. The spread-makers are currently over-emphasing Penn State who come 0-3 ATS their last 3 while its been the opposite for Iowa whose covered their last 3. The Hawkeyes are SUPER-solid on their home hardwoods going 13-2-2 versus the number. Let's confidently go to Carver-Hawkeye Arena to play the IOWA HAWKEYES for the "W" as my 8* Home Avenger! Florida vs. Tennessee (NCAAB) - 2:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -130 Florida Rating: 8* Mike's SEC Double Revenger (LOSS) Don't think HC Mike White will fail getting his troops sky high for this double-revenger! What also stands out is Tennessee has been getting bad numbers @ home. Rick Barnes & Co. have dropped 9 of their last 12 ATS @ this venue coming in. Florida has embraced the favorite role of late with 4 straight returns to the window. Let's travel to Thompson-Boling Arena to grab the FLORIDA GATORS as my SEC Double Revenger! Seton Hall vs. Marquette (NCAAB) - 2:30 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -130 Marquette Rating: 9* Big East Game Of The Week (LOSS) The old Warriors (remember HC Al McGuire) now Golden Eagles have been SOLID @ home coming into this one with a 13-2 SU record. HC Steve Wojciechowski (played for & was an assistant coach @ Duke) has his players on the upswing & will be eager to execute revenge for a 69-55 defeat @ the Prudential Center back on Jan. 11th. What stands out here is Marquette's keen ability for getting it done versus .600 or better teams. They've brought back the cash in 7 of their last 9. The Fiserv Forum will be rocking & the late momentum will be swinging their way as we make the MARQUETTE GOLDEN EAGLES my Big East Game Of The Week! Arkansas vs. Georgia (NCAAB) - 6:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -115 Arkansas Rating: 8* Mike's CBB Literal Ugly Pig Game Of The Week (LOSS) Eric Musselman & his Hogs may fall short of reaching March Madness. However, their 18-10 SU record indicates that possibility is still in reach but with a "W" here! Sophomore sensation guard Isaiah (last name) Joe isn't under the radar anymore becoming one of the nation's best perimeter shooter netting around 41% last season & is averaging 16.5 PPG (made 79 treys this season). He compliments scoring leader Mason Jones (21.1 PPG) nicely whose also coming off a 37-point performance versus Tennessee on Wednesday night in a 86-69 win @ Bud Walton Arena. Georgia comes into this struggling losing 5 of their last 7. I prefer to side with the Razorbacks who have the better defense, commit lesser turnovers & hold that all-important FT% edge for down the stretch. Let's make way to Stegeman Coliseum to play the ARKANSAS RAZORBACKS as my 8* CBB Literal Ugly Pig Game Of The Week! Michigan State vs. Maryland (NCAAB) - 8:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: -2.5/-110 Maryland Rating: 8* Mike's Big Ten Mighty Mite Play (LOSS) These Terrapins are on top of the Big Ten (13-4 Conference & 23-5 overall) for a reason! They know how to flex their muscles & that's especially true when @ home where they're record is unblemished @ 15-0 SU! HC Mark Turgeon has his crew already expanding their win total as a "W" eclipses last year's team that finished 23-11. Anthony Cowan Jr. is a floor leader & should get the job done versus an over-rated Michigan State squad that's dropped their last 5 versus .600 or better competition. MSU (11-6 Conference & 19-9 overall) already dropped a 67-60 to the Terps @ the Breslin Center back on Feb. 15th & are less healthier now going on the road. Look for Jalen Smith to make his 6'10" presence felt as I'll eagerly go to the XFINITY Center to play the MARYLAND TERRAPINS as my Big Ten Mighty Mite Play! Arizona vs. UCLA (NCAAB) - 10:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: 115 UCLA Rating: 8* Mike's CBB Saturday Night Bailout Play (WIN) This is a key PAC-12 matchup as U.C.L.A. comes @ (11-5 Conference & 18-11 overall) & is tied at the top with Oregon. Arizona (9-6 Conference & 19-9 overall) is one of the bubble teams since the top 7 PAC-12 teams are within a game or 2 of each other and a late-season losing streak could put them in the NIT. These 2 previously met back on Feb. 8th with the bruins coming out on top 65-52 @ the McKale Center where the employment of the deliberate style of offense by Wildcats' HC Sean Miller struggled. I'll gladly trust a Mick Cronin club whose won 12 of 16 @ this venue. Look for Arizona to have matchup problems as a result of injuries as we climb aboard the U.C.L.A. BRUINS as my 8* CBB Saturday Night Bailout Play! NOTES: After a bad Saturday where the mushes ruled (mushes meaning the select group online & @ sportsbooks that consistently lose overall), it was PERFECT Sunday as the freaky 1st half shooting percentages left as quick as they came for our sides. Buy points proved again that they DO matter as 2 of the 4 plays on Sunday figured in. My formula isn't without risk but I've proven time & time again you CAN win playing games (@ an average of -140 or so) in football & basketball if you can hit 57% or better which I accomplished the past few seasons in each. If sports bettors do this for baseball, there's NO WAY it can't be done in other sports IF implementing the right system. I'll be gauging teams for March Madness in the upcoming weekend as well as hopping on a few of the earlier smaller conference tournaments. Thanks to all subscribers & followers who believe in my system. Mike Handzelek's 2019-20 CBB Weekly Record: 6-4 for 60% Mike Handzelek's 2019-20 CBB Overall Record: 14-9 for 61% (2nd place in overall winning percentage @ www.VegasTopDogs.com
