Now that we've established Birdie is a child of God, let's find some pointspread winners.

Tough card for me.

Play #6: 603-604 Michigan State-Illinois OVER 147 (-110) at Westgate and William Hill

Don't have to worry about the underdog playing slow.

Illinois is the fastest-paced team in the Big Ten, taking the quickest shots of any team in the 14-team conference.

MSU is missing Joshua Langford (out for the season with an ankle injury) but that gives creative offensive player Cassius Winston (a Bonzi Wells look-alike) a chance to do more with the ball.
Cleared the hurdle in the final minute.

I'll take it.

Back to handicapping, I expect Birdie to get involved with some West Coast action tonight.

I always root for him to win, except in this exercise, of course.

5-2 versus 0-3.
 
Colorado State called for a flagrant foul, then a technical foul, and then they fouled the guy on a three point shot on that possession. Would have gone out 10 points at the most without that nonsense.

Nevada does not believe in running clock with big leads. Their guys love to run up their numbers. No need for alley-oop dunk with 15 seconds left. Somewhere down the line their bullshit will backfire.

CBS Gary Parrish thinks they have a legit NC chance....had to downgrade him again.

I love the better of the Martin twins and Jordan Caroline.

After that, I'm not impressed.

Nevada overwhelms Mountain West foes but the conference has been on the decline for many years.

I don't think Nevada gets to the Final Four if the Zags are in the same bracket.

How do Fezzik & JK land on Northridge side but the self proclaimed king of West Coast hoops Railbird asleep at the wheel?

They are running up scores because of the new NET rankings. They want that 1 seed.
