It’s Tuesday and we all know what that means. I’m going to be completely honest with you, I’m hot as shit right now and I’m back with more Super Tuesday bets. We went 3-1 on Saturday and are now sitting at 9-1 in our last 10 plays. Overall, we are sitting at 22-13-2. If not for two different 20 point blown leads and another bad beat, I’d be the best gambler in America. Like I said on Saturday, is this hot streak going to come to an end? Probably. But let’s try to make sure it doesn’t happen tonight.
Syracuse Vs Boston College
I’m going to be honest, I really like this game. Syracuse has been very up and down this season, but if you know anything about college basketball, you know that Syracuse runs almost exclusively zone defense. How do you beat a zone? You have to shoot them out of the zone defense, which BC was not able to do in the first meeting, losing 76-50. Boston College only shoots 30% from deep and they average 13 turnovers a game. Not a recipe for success. The best player on the court will be Elijah Hughes and the best shooter on the court will be Buddy Boeheim, so advantage Syracuse. The Orange are fighting for their tournament lives and I think the Zone defense will give Boston College fits.
Pick: Syracuse -4
Marquette Vs DePaul
The best player in college basketball is very possibly playing for Marquette. Markus Howard is averaging just under 28 points a game and is shooting 42% from the field. The guy is a walking bucket and he has help. Six different players for Marquette shoot 40% from the 3-point line. Theo John will protect the paint and provide help on the glass. Marquette is 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games against DePaul. Sitting at 18-10 overall, Marquette has lost 4 of their last 5 games and really need to get back on track. DePaul is a dumpster fire, losing 10 of their last 11 games. Big time players show up in the month of March and Markus Howard is just that. Look for him to lead the Golden Eagles to a nice win tonight.
Pick: Marquette -4
#16 Michigan State Vs #20 Penn State
Michigan State has really gotten it going in the last two weeks. Winning three in a row, the Spartans travel to Happy Valley to take on Penn State. I have watched these teams very closely the last couple weeks. Lamar Stevens, who is Penn States leading scorer, has looked very timid as of late. On the flip side, Cassius Winston and Xavier Tillman are possibly the best pick and roll duo in the country. The X factor is this game for me, will be Rocket Watts. I expect Watts to be guarding Lamar Stevens which could give him some trouble. Watts played exceptional defense on Anthony Cowan Jr. last Saturday, holding him to 13 points on 6-15 shooting. Give me the Spartans.
Pick: Michigan State -1
Super Tuesday Bets
So, there you go. Three plays for the holders on a Tuesday. I wanted to take Kentucky because I clearly love betting on UK, but I decided to stay away. I have been red hot these last few weeks and am doing my best to keep handing out winners.

The madness is just around the corner. Hold It.
