ML 520 Nevada (-180) Greek vs 519 Morehead St.
Analysis:Don’t normally do money line like this too often. When you see a lot of back door covers and you know you would’ve won on money line wager it drives you nuts. Nevada was right there in the opener at Morehead, Kentucky which is where Morehead State is located for those that have enquiring minds. Then the Eagle’s Xavier Moon misses two free throws with 31 seconds left which would’ve stretched the lead back to five points. Moon had made 22 of 22 free throws in the CBI’s first three games and cost a cover by missing both throws…if he makes one…most players push or win. Not taking chances on this one…lo “oking at Oliver playing better and the Pack winning to force a Game 3 on Friday night. Marqueze Coleman is back and getting stronger now and I feel him having a big home game at Lawler Event Center in Reno!March 30, 2016 at 1:37 pm #38357
INDIAN COWBOY – w/write ups
4-Unit Play. #419. Take Under 146.5
Morehead State vs. Nevada
(Wednesday @ 9pm est)
We roll with both Unders here today. The first of which is Morehead State as these two teams just hooked up and the score was 86-83 in their last game and a total of 169 points were scored and yet the total listed now is at 146.5 which speaks volumes. You have a great public fade here and Morehead State is likely not to have the same big offensive big production that they had in their first game at home scoring 86 points as this is a team that had the comforts at home and will likely struggle on the road here against Nevada who will be looking for revenge. Nevada is a top 60 team when it comes to defense and they have to be irritated they gave up 86 points in their last game. This team has given up 72, 70 and 75 points in their last 3 post-season games. This is a top 30 team when it comes to opposing field goal percentage who is in the top 30. The key stat here for us is that Nevada is 4-1 coming off a straight up loss to the Under.
4-Unit Play. #521. Take Under 145
Oakland vs. Old Dominion
(Wednesday @ 10pm est)
We roll with the Under here and it’s tough to do so given how fantastic Oakland’s offense is. But, there are metrics that we follow and its hard to ignore the fact that Old Dominion is a top 70 defensive team, top 5 in turnover percentage and outside the top 340 in 3 point field goals. So, you hae a Old Dominion team that is likely to slow the pace down here significantly in order to compete and do well here against Oakland. This is a team that held UC Santa Barbara to just 49 points in their last game and Tennessee Tech to just 59 points. This is a team that held St. Josephs to 66 points and held Purdue to 61 points. The Under is 4-0-1 when the Monarchs face teams with a winning percentage of 60% of more and the Under is 5-1 for the Golden Grizzlies of Oakland when they put up 90 points in their last game.March 30, 2016 at 1:37 pm #38358
4 Unit Play. Take #519/520 Morehead St. vs. Nevada – Over 146.5
(9:00 PM, Wednesday, March 30, ESPN U)
Two teams that have been trending to the over will meet when the Morehead St. Eagles hit the road to take on the Nevada Wolfpack at the Lawlor Events Center in Reno, NV in Game 2 of the CBI Tournament Finals. The Eagles have posted a 5-2 record to the over in their last seven games overall and they have that same 5-2 record to the over in their last seven games where they faced a non-conference opponent. The Wolfpack have been an over team as well in the spot they are in here tonight as they have gone over the total in six of their last seven non-conference games. Throw in the fact that Morehead has gone a perfect 5-0-1 to the over in their last six games following an ATS loss and that these two teams put up 169 points when they met on Monday night in Game 1 and that’s where we’ll have our play as we are expecting the same type of game that we saw on Monday night in Kentucky.March 30, 2016 at 2:15 pm #38365
STRIKE POINT SPORTS
*6-Unit* Play. #520 Take Nevada (-4)
over Morehead State
(9 p.m., Wednesday, March 30)
These two play their second game of a best-of-three series for the CBI title. Morehead State won a narrow one at home in the opener by three points, but I see Nevada holding serve at home in a much bigger fashion on their own floor. We cashed the Wolfpack already once this tournament with a convincing double digit victory over Vermont, and I think a similar outcome is the case here tonight. Morehead State doesn’t have as much talent as Nevada, and I think away from their home court they won’t be good enough. Nevada is 14-3 at home this season while Morehead State has a losing road record at 8-9. Better team from the better conference shows up in a big way for the Whiteout in Nevada tonight. Wolfpack by 12 to even up this championship series, 74-62.
