There is nothing better than waking up to a board that has 2 early games! You can bet your ass I will be throwing on both of these. The first game between NC A&T and Radford tips off at 11:30 am ET. Depending on how my bet goes in this game will determine my unit size for Charleston Southern and UNC Asheville at 2pm.
NCAT(11-19) is traveling to Radford(11-17) after playing them at a neutral site on the 26th and losing to them by 9. Depending on your sportsbook, it's pretty much a pick 'em game. I matched the bet on MatchBets and took Radford ML at -102 (100% deposit match when use code: WORSTBETS). I like Radford to once again win against NCAT. NCAT has lost their last 4, while Radford has won 4 of its last 5. I always lean towards the hot team, and Radford has proven they can handle NCAT with ease. Both teams rank very poorly offensively, but I think Radford gains a slight advantage on the defensive side of the ball. Either way, this game could go in any direction, so my main reason for this bet is to throw on the hot team.
I will have 30 minutes from the conclusion of this game and the start of Charleston Southern (5-24) at UNC-Asheville (16-13). I already have my bet picked out, I'm just waiting on my unit size. Charleston Southern is definitely a bottom tier team, ranking horrendously on both sides on the ball. They have also lost 6 in a row and that will most likely be 7 after today. UNCA on the other hand is ranked 5th in the country in opponent 3 point % and has other defensive stats that rank in the top 60 in the country. The spread is a little scary at -10.5, but I am confident in UNCA's defense, and Southern's lack basketball ability for this to cover! UNCA -10.5!
I will have more plays for the night games, but just wanted to get these out for the degenerates like myself who will be betting on 11 am on a Wednesday. Better get used to it, because March is here!!!
As Always, Godspeed!
