    Either the paradise jam or the battle for atlantis...or both.

    Yes sir, I believe battle of Atlantis the one I'm thinking of!! Terrible backdrop, like 100 yards of emptiness behind the backboards! (Might be slight exaggeration but you get what im saying, lol)., thanks buddy.

    Yup, it's brutal. There's no depth perception for shooters. Plus I think it's got some weird lighting going on too. It's like all dim and shit. Banker am I sensing a first half under angle???

    I believe you're thinking of the Bahamas, the Battle 4 Atlantis, with that weird dark backdrop behind the backboards and stiff rims.

    Yea the lighting does suck as well.

    Far as totals kinda Depends on the teams we get, I got torched one season on them cause there were several teams that were running up and down so shooting wasn't much of a issue. But yea if we get some half court type teams or 3 point dependent type teams where hopefully the totals not taking the venue into consideration there certainly a chance some decent value on unders. Have to wait and see, I'm gonna start digging in and trying to figure this all out here shortly.

    Games seem to fly over the total in the Maui Invitational every year. Some of the softest rims I've ever seen. Just get the ball on the rim, and it has a good chance to drop in.

    I feel like they always adjust the lines as the tournament goes on. Seems like you can grab games in the upper 60's on the first day, and they hit the 80's, lol

    I'm sure they do! Prob some venue adjustment, some we tend to get better teams playing as tourney progresses. Maui usually has pretty nice group of teams!

    I have always just auto bet the over when Chaminade plays. They score a ton, and give up even more.
    In the past, it's rare they use more then 10 seconds of the shot clock.

    Ya good pick on Seton Hall. I wish I didnt pick Indiana. I mean Im happy with how they competed the majority of the game, but the 7 quick fouls to start the 2nd half kind of took the wind out of their sails....and Ill give Hall credit, they attacked, and got to the line ALOT!

    Xavier +1.5 1H @ Wisconsin

    Bluiett can really light it up and I expect X to come out strong in the 1st half as they often do in big games. Wiscy meanwhile has been known to start slow at home, then that Kohl's center home court advantage really kicks in later in the 2nd half. Outside of Happ - who struggles at the charity stripe badly - the rest of this Badger team is young and fresh. 7' Van Vliet's usual mismatch behind the arc may be diminished as Xavier's Gates is only 6'8" but can defend down low as well as the perimeter. This makes me like how Xavier matches up defensively, they have the more talented & experienced backcourt, and you can count on them coming in charged up to revenge their buzzer beater loss to the Badgers a year n a half ago.

    Rolling with the cream of the Horizon league today.

    Oakland -1 @ Toledo
    Both squads are led by a transfer from a P5 league team, but one isn't fools gold - OU's Nunn was a double digit scorer the past 2 seasons and now seemingly can't be stopped, putting up 24 & 36 points in his first 2 games. Oakland coach Greg Kampe is fired up about his player Hayes being suspended for some wack eligibility reason, and he wants to make statement wins wherever he can. Next 2 games are the Cuse & Kansas so they need a W today.

    Northern Kentucky -1 vs. Iona
    Iona has been outrebounded despite their size and show very little perimeter D, so I expect McDonald and Holland to rain 3s and get this W in the Bahamas.

    I canít bet these games yet itís just feels like itís too early and less itís a big game match up, also too much going on right now

    Remember men small bets move college basketball lines Because so many games and they donít get a lot of volume

    Low
    Limits too

    Yep I've done the tracking thing. It's a good exercise to see how you stand during the course of a season but it doesn't give you any added credibility despite what you might think.

    As for the trolling, funny to hear you suddenly try to take the moral high ground. LOL. Now please go do a quick review of some mid major's team summary and give us another "write-up."

    I don't get it, what's funny?

    Go pick some dog MLs and make individual posts in PT about them. You'll probably lose money in the long run - if you actually bet money - but you can enjoy "all the feels" when you're the lone wolf to call a major upset. If attention is worth more to you than money, then I'm happy for you.

    Here in the NCAAB sub, we do welcome write ups on mid majors as well as the big games. I'll talk college hoops with anyone no matter the game big or small.

    Yes, yes i know. We got your Sparty slant on Tuesday (woops). Funny how a guy who is betting games left and right with no real discretion is going to talk about someone else losing money "in the long run."

    To be honest it's a lot of work with that volume for me. Probably 95% of my bets are 1 unit / $100 ATS -110 plays. Occasionally +100 or -120, and my ML plays are so rare like only 1-2% of my plays. So if I assume -110 for all plays I can calculate the money won with pretty high accuracy.

    Yea I'm not buying that. Only took one page back to find a ML -220 play. Granted, it cashed but if you're making those kinds of plays you can't just assumed -110 odds. Actually you should indicate the vig on all your plays.
