Oklahoma +4.5 || 3 units || In the last 10 meetings between these two teams the home team is 10-0. In a neutral court, I would take Oklahoma State but I feel there is just too much value with +4.5 at home. Let's hope Marcus Smart fouls out and has another tantrum! WINNER
Colgate +2.5 || 2 units || Statistically, Colgate is better then Lafayette in scoring defense (+9.1), scoring margin (+7), FG% (+2.8%), FG% defense (+4%), 3PT% defense (+8), and they are the #1 team in the Patriot League in assist/TO ratio. Offensively we will call it a wash but defensively Lafayette is DEAD LAST in the Patriot league allowing a garbage 77.2 ppg! WINNER
looking strong so far (knocks on wood)
We won both bets fairly easily with both dogs winning outright!
Colgate won this game from the charity stripe as they went a strong 23-27 (85%) from the line which made up for their atrocious 3PT% last night (4-23 @ 17%). Scoring is one thing but as you know, we cap off defense first and Lafayette has no idea what defense is!
OKST's typically superb 3pt defense was not a factor for the Sooners last night as they went 8-17 (47%) from beyond the arc! OKLA just played a much stronger, more well rounded game as they edged OKST in FG%, FT%, 3PT%, TRB, and PF! Just a strong showing for the home team as the home team is 11-0 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams!
(13-5 @ 72% all sports run!!!)
keep it up brother!
Don't throw dung at me and tell me it is raining brown, solid water.
Thanks JKR and JOJO. BOL to you both!
