From Best to Worst
Would Miami be a good play since they are at 75 and Virginia at 69? Mia gets 6 pt advantage and the spread is at Mia +2 or +1 right now. Tricky tricky! I seen K St with a huge pt differential vs TTU being only favored by 7.5 and on the point stats by like 13-14 point advantage and it was a blow out. Don't wanna miss Miami if this seems to follow the trend.
I love this kind of stuff. Thank You
