First I want to explain where the OVC race stands. The OVC is divided into two divisions, East and West. The winners of each division get's a double bye into the semi-finals. Murray (11-2) is the West winner and Belmont (11-2) has a 1 game lead on Morehead (10-3) and also has an easy schedule the rest of the way and holds the tie breaker. Unless Belmont is really unlucky they will win the East. After that you throw both divisions togeather and the teams are seeded by the best record. The third and fourth seeds get a single bye. Right now unless the sky falls Morehead will get one of those spots. The other spot will up for grabs between EKU (8-5), Tenn. Tech (6-6), and SIU-E (7-6). The 5-8 spots will play on the first day and have to win 4 games in a row to win the tournament. The two losers of the battle for the 4th seed will get two of those spots. The last two spots will be between EIU (6-8), Austin Peay (5-8), SEMO (4-8), Jacksonville St. (4-9) and UT-Martin (3-9). Tenn. St. (2-11) is out of the tournament. All teams play 16 conference games. SEMO can knock Jacksonville St. out with a win tonight and Tenn. Tech. can knock UT-M out with a win. I don't know of any other conference that doesn't let all their teams play in the conference tournament. It's all about the money and the conference wants the top seeds to advance to the NCAA's. They don't want any upset's from the semi's on.

TENN. TECH.  AT  UT-MARTIN

I thought TTU was starting to put it togeather. They had beat Belmont and EKU at home and JSU on the road. Then Morehead came to town and thumped them 79-53. I was on Morehead in that game because they are a bad match up for Tech. UT-M isn't. UT-M is playing for their tournament lives but Tech has something to play for too. Tech has won 7 in a row in this series.  I'm just going with the better team getting points.

2*  #585  TENN. TECH  +2  -120

SIU-E  AT  TENN. ST.

TSU is playing for pride while SIU-E is playing for seeding. I believe these two programs are going in opposite directions. Once again I'm going with better team getting points.

2*  #591  SIU-E  +2  -120

JACKSONVILLE ST.  AT  SEMO

Both teams have their backs to the wall now. SEMO can knock JSU out of the tournament with a win tonight. These are two completely opposite teams. JSU is a slow tempo team that want's to keep the game in the 60's. SEMO is a high scoring team (82.1ppg). They want a fast pace transition game. I'm not going to say any more about the game but I am making a average bet on SEMO. As a warning SEMO is 0-7 ATS at home this year so if you follow do so with caution.

2*  #594  SEMO  -5  -108

The more I look at this SIU-E game the more I like them. Especially now with the line moving to 3 -101. I'm putting 1 more unit on them at +3 -101 to make that a TOP play.

Going to add a little insurance on the SEMO game, as I do like them to win the game, with a 2 team ML parlay. I'm putting them with Nebraska who's won 5 of their last 6 and is 11-1 at home this year.

2 team ML parlay for 2* at +102.

#532  NEBRASKA  ML

#594  SEMO  ML

Pool....You would be proud, we actually had SEMO tonight as our 4 Unit Diamond play, which we probably only have one or two per week. We just thought tonight was the perfect situation for them to win and cover...easy winner tonight!

Any time you are thinking about making a bet on a SEMO game shoot me a message on the "conversation" link. There was a lot of info that I had on them but couldn't put out publicly. Their top scorer J. Bradley went out 5 minutes into the UT-M game last week with a game ending injury to his knee and SEMO had him listed as doubtful tonight but I knew he was going to play.

SIU-E kept us from a sweep tonight. They just couldn't hold the lead at the end and lost by 5. They missed a layup at the buzzer that would have saved us the 1 unit. SEMO finally showed up for a home game. They held JSU to 22-59 37.3% from the floor and 9-30 30.0% from three. While they were 35-62 56.5% from the floor and only 2-8 25.0% from three. But they didn't need to shoot three point shot's in this one because they out scored JSU 58-16 in the paint. SEMO's two big inside players put on a show with Tyler Stone scoring 28 with 9 rebounds and Nino Johnson scoring 14 with 10 rebounds. For my W/L record I'm counting my two SIU-E bets (at different numbers) as 1 loss. We go 3-1 +2.63 units on the day. YTD record now 86-84  -14.77 units.
