This is a High Rollers play only. I'd like to remind you that as I was informed that some of you have taken the liberty posting my picks while the games were still on. It is known who those individuals are and at what forums the picks were posted. I want to believe that it was done with no malice intended. But, I have to demand to stop posting the picks anywhere as those picks are the property of PhixerCode.com. It is not fair to the rest of the High Roller dudes who pay hard cash for their membership while you - with intention or without - are giving the picks away for free. In short - that kind of behavior will not be tolerated and result in a life ban for the member who will post my picks while the game is still going on.
Sometimes it is hard to understand the extent of the perception created within the public. Sometimes the odds makers too fall a victim to that perception. I think, giving the Shockers 6 points in the hand heading to Cincinnatti is a huge misunderstanding of basketball as if there is a college team that the Bearcats are totally mismatched against - those are the Shockers.
If the Bearcats win and cover this one - it is only because the game would be intervened by the wise guys or whomever. Straight up? The Bearcats couldn't handle the current Shockers squad.
- The Bearcats have a hard time against the ranked teams. They haven't beaten one the whole season and are 0-3 in that department. There is an anomaly in being #5 and yet not beating a single ranked team.
- With each game at home, the burden of continuing the winning streaks (39 now) is pressuring the Bearcats.
- The Shockers are having most probably one of their best seasons in their recent history. They know that if they win today and again at home against the Bearcats in the closing game of the season - they do have a serious shot at the consideration by the committee.
- Privileged info says the Shockers straight up. No reason to overlook that. But, I didn't yet decide to pull the trigger on that as well. Waiting for some confirmation
