We had a great main slate start to the day, almost had a full sweat on the Bracket Mania Q as well.  So here’s a little action as we try to pass out tonight…

Pay Up Studs

Justin Lewis – 8400 – Marquette

This is a great match-up and the Golden Eagles really need Lewis to play well to hold off the fast Red Storm.  With the extra tempo coming in this game he should get a rebound and block boost.


  • Julian Champagnie – 9300 – St. Johns
  • Tolu Smith – 7000 – Miss St
  • Jaime Jaquez – 7200 – UCLA
  • Terrell Brown – 9100 – Washington … Better studs above him and better options on his own team.  He will probably be a heavy chalk play that I would consider fading unless you are doing MME pool.

Middle Range

Paul Scruggs – 6800 – Xavier

Point guards vs Georgetown, not gonna beat this one further than what it is and for sub 7k no chance he doesn’t give you 4x despite 3 of his last 4 being down.  Get right game.


  • Jamal Bey – 6000 – Washington
  • Emmitt Matthews – 5700 – Washington
  • Roman Silva – 5900 – Oregon State
  • Dante Harris – 6300 –  Georgetown
  • Donald Carey – 7000 – Georgetown

Sub 5500 Value

Dwon Odom – 3800 – Xavier

Unlike the main slate today the value optoins are thin, but unlike the main slate today I see punting below 4k working out to lock in on the STJ/Marquette game.  Odom has a floor in the double digits but a ceiling that’s likely around 20 fpts.  Georgetown is obviously a chance to break through that ceiling if he can get his 30 mins he has gotten lately and should hit from deep to get there.


  • Tristan da Silva – 5200 – Colorado
  • Olivier-Maxence Prosper – 4200 – Marquette
  • KJ Simpson – 4200 – Colorado
  • Anderson Garcia – 4500 – Miss ST

St. Johns at Marquette

This is a pay for the stars game, mostly Champagnie and Lewis and then fill in around them on this slate.

  • SJU:   Julian Champagnie, Joel Soriano
  • Marq:  Justin Lewis, Tyler Kolek

Oregon State at Washington

  • Oregon St:  Roman Silva, Jarod Lucas
  • Wash:  Jamal Bey, Emmitt Matthews

Georgetown at Xavier

  • Georgetown:   Dante Harris, Donald Carey
  • Xavier:   Paul Scruggs, Dwon Odom/Zach Freemantle

Paul Scruggs – Xavier – PG

Senior day and time to shine for one of my guys that has not done so well this season.  Here’s a get right game.



Mississippi State / Texas A&M – Under 134.5 … Like A&M to win as well for a SGP.

Colorado / Utah UNDER 137.5
