Both are around this price on the PL. Instead of trying to sweat it out and hope for an empty netter I'll just as both to win SU. Think both will although the last time I picked a winner there were 13 States in the Union

Oilers@VGK total under 6½ -111

Also, JK, please double check your grading of last night pick (Florida@Arizona total under 6½ -114) that was graded as a loss.
Both goalies played great in a 2-1 Florida victory.
Many thanks.

I confused the Arizona and Anaheim games at the bottom of the Don Best screen.

My bad.

I'll make the correction now.

>Posting on Wednesday for Thursday spot for Thursday night game...
Thursday, February 27, 2020—069 Liberty -20 -105 (BetOnline)

7 pm ET/4 pm PT (ESPN+)—Kennesaw State (1-26 SU, 7-20 ATS) seems rattier to me than Chicago State (4-24 SU, 9-16 ATS), but KenPom.com still has the A-Sun side ranked at #351 with the WAC’s Cougars still dead last at #353 of all D1 teams. The best team in the WAC and most likely one to be dancing come March Madness is New Mexico State (22-6 SU), 10-16 ATS) while the best team in the Atlantic Sun Conference is Liberty (26-3 SU, 14-13 ATS), Kennesaw State’s opponent on Thursday night at the quaint (4,000-seat) KSU Convocation Center in Kennesaw, GA.

When these two met at Liberty in Lynchburg on Jan 31, the Flames torched the Fighting Owls 83-45 as five Liberty players finished in double-digits in a game which saw the hosts run out to a 34-18 lead at Halftime in an affair that was knotted 7-7 early on. Liberty (68.3 ppg) shot 56.1% from the Field (KEN 37.2%) and had a big edge Rebounding (38-20) vs KSU (56.4 ppg) as Scottie James (below) had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Fouling Fallwells.


Poor Kennesaw State has L18 SU while Liberty has W7 games SU heading in here, winning by margins of 38 (LIB), 15 (FGCU), 18 (UNA), 13 (NJIT), 5 (UNF) and 28 (STET), an average margin of 16.7 ppg over that span. Your Bladder is the definition of Recency Bias when you get older unless you have a Wife or a Girlfriend and then there’s always Recency Bias. Hey where do you think the Men In Black get their Suits and Sunglasses? They always look so dapper.

The Flames should run out an early 20-point lead here with starting Guards Caleb Homesley (17.6 ppg), Georgie Pacheco-Ortiz (10.7 ppg) and Darius McGee (9.4 ppg) helping F James (11.0 ppg, 7.3 rpg) crush the hapless Owls. Who? The Owls. Hoo? The Owls bruh. Come on. Since 2015, Kennesaw State has been the best NCAAB team to bet against with the Owls going 24-44-0 (35.3%, -3.6 ATS +/-). KSU is 4-6 ATS at Home this season while Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Gath is 9-5 ATS on the Road (6-3 SU).

In this game last year in the Peach State, Liberty won 76-59 and also had five guys in double-digits but the Flames are a little bit better this season while Kennesaw State is a little bit worse, if possible (it is). Liberty won by 38 at Home and could probably do so again if they really had to at KSU. They don’t.

Liberty 79 Kennesaw State 51

Final score: Maryland 74 Minnesota 73.

A gorgerous come-from-behind win on the road.

The Terps ended the game on an 11-3 run.

One for the good guys and the smart guys.
Thanks Kelly, I'd rather be lucky than good.

74-73 final is the first and only time Maryland ever had the lead in the game.

BTW you had a quite a game yourself. Always nice to get the best # and then win by the hook....

Another gorgeous win, well done sir.

In all fairness it was just going to be the Knights. I loved their spot hosting a team playing 3-in-4 and B2B while they have been off since Sunday. As I do this it is 3-0 Knights so looks like they will cover the PL and knowing that was going to be my only play I am getting about 5-cents more this way than just the Golden Showers PL
