YTD 29-23 +11.2
VMI +20 over Samford
Samford played probably their most important game of the year this past Thursday evening in being down by 7 pts at halftime and beating NC Greensboro on the road. They had to overcome a very motivated team playing basically for the conference regular season championship title. IMHO they used up a lot of emotional, physical and mental energy in preparation & playing NC Greensboro.
I bet on NC Greensboro and loss my wager.
Samford beat VMI at home on Jan.13th by 38 pts. and every team player regardless of what the coaches say are going to have a difficult time getting jacked up and motivated to play a team they beat by 38 pts. in a 2nd consecutive away game.
VMI who is 4-20 straight up and are just a god-awful, terrible team, however they do play better at home. They loss to NC Greensboro at home 9 days ago by 6 pts in a hard-fought game. In their last 4 home games they had a win and 3 losses by 1,4 and 6 pts.
I see them fully motivated, playing against the top team in the conference...........who is emotionally, physically and mentally tired. Samford right now is a happy and very satisfied with itself and very successful team. They would not publicly admit it however they are coming into this game with a mindset to just win by 10 to 15 pts and get back home. I expect the coach to take his foot off of the gas petal and play all his players and not try to embarrass VMI and win big again.
VMI +19.5 over Samford for 2 units at South point casino
