Dave’s Free Play, Monday 1/28/13

  • January 28, 2013

Nice results for me on Sunday, including the free call on Colorado. Slim Monday pickings in the college hoop ranks, but one game that appears worth looking at is the Big East tilt between Pittsburgh and Louisville.

01/28 04:00 PM CB (719) PITTSBURGH VS (720) LOUISVILLE

Take: (719) PITTSBURGH

The Big East is yet another example of how tough life can be in any of the deeper conferences. It’s just one tough battle after another for these teams, and the result has been a boon for bettors recognizing what’s taking place. If you want to find out for yourself, research how competitively priced (single digit) road underdogs have fared to date in the Big East. The numbers are pretty amazing. Look for the trend to continue tonight. Pittsburgh has found a little rhythm lately. Louisville has a load of talent, but right now the Cardinals are simply out of synch. They’re going to get it back together soon enough in all likelihood, but hopefully that won’t be tonight. I’ll look for the typical Big East duel to the wire, and I’ll therefore opt for the Panthers plus the points.
