    Regul8er's 2017-18 College Hoops Thread

    What's up Gentlemen?

    I wanted to begin a thread to keep track of my NCAAB plays this year. Until March, I'm only going to be focusing on College Basketball, as well as Bowl games in December and January. Going to abandon ship on everything else.

    I'm pretty sure this is only sport I've turned a profit lifetime, so seeing if I can't finish this year in the green. For now, I'm just going to make all of my plays for 1 unit (to win $150). Im going to focus on a handful of conference.....a few major and a few mid-major......will be nice to just eliminate 2/3 of the card each night.....sometimes these NCAAB cards on Wednesday's and Saturday's are overwhelming.

    Any discussion or insight is welcome!

    FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10th, 2017

    6:00pm West Virginia -6.5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    7:00pm Northern KY -5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    7:00pm Oakland -6.5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    7:00pm Siena +18.5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    8:30pm Oklahoma St -16.5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    9:00pm Yale +7.5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)

    That rounds out my card for opening night......goodluck to everyone tonight and the rest of the season......it's going to be a grind.

    Again, could only find two games I liked, so I locked em in early. Regardless of what happens, a profit has been turned on opening weekend!

    6:00pm Princeton +9 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    10:00pm Stanford -18 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)

    Profitable weekend, but sh!t Sunday. Princeton with a garbage foul with 11 seconds left to cost me the first one.
    Then Stanford builds up a very comfortable lead, only to give up a late 27-11 run....very unexpected against a pretty bad Pacific squad.

    Ohhh well, long season, this kind of stuff will happen multiple times a week. Will come back firing this week!

    Brutal damn beat with UIC......sucks when a bad beat swings your whole day from positive to negative. When your up 6 with under a minute left and on the free throw, you just can't lose those. Stay positive, and tell myself I made a good pick, and read the game right.

    Im not going to give up......but I hope the bad beats slow down a bit, lol. It's way too early for this.

    Really need a 35-10 to even give me a shot. But joking aside, it's probably time to put big favs in my back pocket......never had luck with them. And the one's I pass on TCU and Missouri win without a sweat. Just picked the wrong ones tonight.

    Rough night!

    A good thought in my humble opinion. Too much can go wrong getting back-doored, etc...laying that many points. Have a good night!

    4 plays today.......looking to hit at least 3 of these. Hope I don't regret taking another double digit favorite, after what I preached yesterday. Let's see what happens.

    TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14th, 2017

    7:00pm Cleveland St +12.5 (Risk 0.8 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    7:00pm Syracuse -10 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    8:00pm Green Bay +5.5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    8:00pm Arizona St ML (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)


    2017-18 NCAAB Record: 8-8 (50.0%), -0.80 units

    Was hoping to hit 3 of 4.....instead I lost 3 of 4, lol.

    Not going to panic yet, or change my capping. Just a cold run.....going to turn this thing around, and kick the sh!t out of this sport this year!

    Gotta figure the teams out that's all. Always a bit of movement/change from last season. I over estimated yesterday myself.

    This will be a winning thread.

    Thanks Rydermkd.....the motivation I needed. Not going to pack it in. A couple bounces go my way, I'd be up 5 units in this thread.
    But I'll be back......maybe just 1 or 2 plays today.

    Definately going against the grain tonight. I did get Indiana early this morning, and I'm glad I did.

    I think this is a let down spot for Minnesota.....hard fought battle in Providence on Monday night, then fly half way across the country to play host to Niagara, who is well rested. I see Niagara doing just enough to keep it under 20. I do like the fact that Niagara improved throughout the year last, and return almost all of their contributors.

    Finally, I'll be honest, I really like Northwestern. They let me down as a big favorite a few nights back......but I think they get up for this game. I imagine they will be playing in front of a big, loud crowd, and feed off the energy. I see Northwestern fighting for the 2nd or 3rd spot in Big 10 this year, that's how much I like them.

    WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 15th, 2017
    6:30pm Indiana +12.5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    8:00pm Niagara +20 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)
    9:00pm Northwestern -4.5 (Risk 1.1 Units to Win 1 Unit)


    2017-18 NCAAB Record: 9-11 (45.0%), -3.10 units

    Missed it. Action closed for me with the local lotto plays . Was on the same side. I'd be worried though +12.5 (13 for me) was too good. Smells fishy.

    Ya, I know the majority of folks will be on Seton Hall tonight, kind of a sexy play with how Indiana has been struggling. I'm sure playing away from Assembly Hall is the best thing.......too much pressure in the air right now. I do think Archie Miller is a solid coach, and will get these guys playing better.

    WOW, nice steal on NW at -3. I could have bet -4 earlier this morning, but I thought the line was going to go the other way. Glad I got it before it hit 5.

    Nope......Im in Kentucky.

    Indiana played hard most of the night, but kind of got home cooked in the 2nd half. The foul discrepancy was pretty evident, alot of ticky hand checks that didnt effect the play. Seton Hall was in the bonus for the last 16 minutes...makes it tough to cover.

    Now need to win my last 2, or a 4th straight losing day.......I have 100% faith in Niagara and Northwestern....Im gonna have a 2-1 night, which I'll take!

    Good Job on your 1st half bet! Really liking my Niagara +20....they are hanging in, and Minnesota's legs should be getting a bit heavy here.

    At 9:25 of the 2nd Half....Minnesota 68-66.
    At 4:25 of the 2nd Half....Minnesota 92-68.

    LOL....24-2 run in exactly 5 minutes. My reasoning was against Minnesota because tired legs would show up late, lololol. You can't make this stuff up guys. As much as I want to record keep on here, I am feeling the effects of the sbr jinx. It's happened before......Ive had a solid 2 years of capping, made some good money, but the bad vibes are starting to hit me. And then early this week Ive had big favorites who finally got to the cover, only to slip.

    And then Northwestern getting their sh!t absolutely pushed in to top it off. Been following the Niagara game, and just saw the score.

    I wish you guys the best of luck, and Ill still be around. But its time for me to just kill this thread. I need to wipe off these bad vibes, because I would like to stuff my pockets again this year, and I just dont think its possible doing this. Call me crazy, but the jinx is real, haha. Thanks Gents!

    haha.......they were down 2.

    And the funny thing is, Im really not even that phased, because I've seen way way worse......I could kind of sense it happening after 2 buckets.

    But like I said, I'll be fine....I bet within my means now, and won't kill myself. But I want to win obviously, and I'll probably win 15 of my next 20 not posting. The way it always seems to go.

    But like I said, I'll be around and offer insight in yalls threads......I'll just keep my plays silent.

    It's funny how this always works........I stop posting in the thread, and then I get red hot the last few weeks.

    Turned a $50 Freeplay into over 3k.....I really can't explain the sbr jinx for me. I think I've had one successful thread over the years.
