Cashed the free one yesterday on MTSU with not too much trouble. Have a 3* going later, weekend all-access up (use coupon code UNCLE60 for a discount) - also, reduced price for every CBB pick we make through the Final Four with the March Madness All-Access discounted subscription. That obviously includes the CBI/NIT, etc.

824 Arkansas -1.0 (-110) Pinnacle vs 823 Seton Hall
Analysis: We're obviously not high on the Big East, and although Seton finished fairly well, it's an illusion in my opinion. The biggest reason here is that Arkansas plays quick, as we know, and Seton struggled mightily against the faster teams in the Big East, losing to St. Johns, Marquette, and Creighton. Arkansas is/was a bad matchup for Kentucky all season, but other than that they beat most all of the up tempo teams in the SEC. Seton sucks from the line and the Hogs are a tremendous FT shooting team, with more experience and more depth, and for added measure Seton turns the ball over, and we know that the Hogs press everything. This one might not be close.

Good luck - I did see the Seton steam there a bit ago, but with the ticket count I am not concerned. It could also be the "wiseguys" trying to get +1 or better (or plus on the ML) on both sides. With so much public money involved that might be a little easier to do this week that it otherwise might.

I don't know any cool people, fortunately. Well, except you because you move lines and don't tell anyone Confused

I want to bump this an apologize for it being closer than I thought. Plus, since it'll be near the top of the forums for a while longer more people might see that we've got a big one tonight and buy that. Just full disclosure, as usual. It beats just being a lemming.

Yes, the public (there is so much more public money in these games it's not even funny) chasing their loss on Seton Hall. Don't panic.

It ain't over - but that's typical during any given big public game/sport, just magnified here. Now, if it were steamed to the UNDER then I'd worry - Joe Q. Public does not throw large sums of money on "under" right before tip off.
