The NBA slate tonight is weak, but the college basketball card more than makes up for it. There are plenty of top 25 match ups tonight and the Cornfather has combed through all the rogue games as well. If the Cornfather sweeps tonight’s card like he did last night, we may have to build a statue in his honor. Let’s get weird on a Tuesday.
Lunch Money Plays
VCU +7 vs Texas – The Cornfather like the way both these teams are playing early in the season. Shaka Smart returns to the building he made it very hard to win at. VCU is still a very tough place to play and 7.5 is way too many to give.
Utah +7.5 @ Butler – Butler hasn’t played well against tough competition yet this year. They will always be tough to beat at home, but Utah will give them all they can handle. The Utes have a very solid program.
Memphis -9.5 vs Samford – Memphis is great at home and Samford stinks at basketball.
Arizona +1 vs Texas A&M – Arizona has struggled to start the season and the Cornfather loves the way A&M is playing, but he thinks the Wildcats will turn it around on their home floor. They have the bigs to neutralize the Aggies front court and there Is no debate that they have talent.
Car Payment Plays
UCONN +6.5 vs Syracuse – An all-time classic rivalry game in the Garden makes the Cornfather mourn for the old Big East. Both teams have gotten off to a solid start this season and the Cornfather has no idea why the Orange are favored by so many. They aren’t anything special and this game will come down to the wire.
SMU +3.5 @ TCU – An already battle tested SMU team will take on a TCU team that has only scheduled cupcakes. Being undefeated means absolutely nothing at this point and the Horned Frogs will have to prove to the Cornfather they can beat a real team.
Gonzaga vs Villanova Over 150 – This is the easiest bet of the day and a seldom seen mortgage play on a Tuesday or the Cornfather. The Cornfather has never seen a team play as fast as Gonzaga does and Villanova will have no problem running and gunning. In a game that will have no less than 10,000 possessions, each team will easily reach the 80’s. Never a doubt.
