Lunch Money Plays: Detroit +6.5 @ Boston, Brooklyn +17 @ Houston, Dallas +9.5 @ San Antonio, LA Lakers +4.5 @ LA Clippers
The Dogs were indeed parking and the Cornfather only dropped the LA Lakers game by 1 point. Detroit even won straight up in Boston.
Lunch Money Plays: Syracuse -3 vs Maryland, Wisconsin +7.5 @ Virginia
Syracuse won by 2, but good teams win and great teams cover. Sad, but not as pathetic as the other game. Anybody who watched the Wisconsin Virginia game should be refunded. 37-49 in a division 1 game with a shot clock is disgusting. The Cornfather won’t willingly watch either those teams play the rest of the year out of principle.

Pony of the Day #5 Quasante- Finished 2nd at 3/2 in race 5 at Parx. She was unplayable at that price, but still ran a strong race.
Lunch Money Play: Houston M/L +290
Mortgage Play: Houston +7.5
Another day another mortgage win for the Cornfather. He’s won four mortgages in a row those keeping track at home. This game was closely contested all night and was the dog fight the Cornfather predicted. Houston was in the number the entire game and we were rewarded for being on the right side.
