Dave’s Free Play, Wednesday 2/20/13

  • February 20, 2013

As easy as it gets with the Tuesday free play as San Diego State manhandled a shorthanded Wyoming squad.

I can guarantee that the Wednesday free play will not get there as easily, but it’s nonetheless a spot I like and feel is worth a wager. Let’s get right to it!
02/20 05:00 PM CB (763) TEXAS A&M VS (764) AUBURN

Take: (764) AUBURN

Auburn has lost nine of its last ten, so the Tigers are not exactly go with material right now. But I kind of like the way they match up with Texas A&M and it’s not like the Aggies are impressing anyone right now. A&M stunned Kentucky on the road a while back, but it’s been mostly downhill subsequently. The Aggies are just 3-7 in their last ten, and they’ve struggled on the SEC road. The long range shooting has been abysmal, and the two freshmen who play big minutes, Caruso and Reese, are both turnover prone. I think we’re going to see Auburn play lots of zone defense tonight, and that could be a problem for the visitors. The one area that concerns me most is second chance opportunities for A&M, as they’re tough on the offensive glass, while the Tigers are about as one and done as it gets in the SEC. I like the fact that the hosts are off a very lopsided loss that should turn bettors off tonight. I think it’s a good spot to jump in as it’s a winnable game for Auburn. Pick the winner, get the money and mine will go on Auburn tonight to capture a close game.
