I’m taking a few days off from blogging, but the daily free plays will still be here, so make sure to check in! Regular blogs will resume on Tuesday.

Merry Christmas to all, and here’s my Monday free play (analysis will also return on Tuesday).

QUICK LANE BOWL

231 MARYLAND vs. 232 BOSTON COLLEGE

TAKE: BOSTON COLLEGE +2

Note this is NOT on my personal service card. Not many choices today due to the thin slate and most of the NBA games are not available at this time.

However, the Lions +7.5 play posted as the free play a couple of days ago is on the card. Note that I’m also intending to buy back a portion of that wager with Cowboys at -6.5 or better.

As for Maryland-BC, little to choose from in a game between two very average teams. I generally tend to side with the better defense, particularly vs. the run, in these “minor” bowl games. So with the Eagles owning a commanding edge in that category, I lean to that side and getting a couple of points can’t hurt.

Back with the regular blogs tomorrow.
