College Hoops Digest Picks - November Results and plays for December 1st.
I started this blog half way through the Duke game, confident I was about to be on top tonight. My absolute Lock of the Month was Duke -3. I mushed myself hard on this one, as Ohio State pulls out an 8-0 towards the end and upsets the Blue Devils. I am beyond myself on this one. "The Epitome of Brutality" ~ Jon Rothstein.
I'm now sitting just above 60% for the first month of college hoops. It's been slightly lucrative thus far, but I have definitely learned a thing or two for some of the teams this season.
The Bryant Bulldogs are not the covering Dawgs of years past. Hopefully things change around in Smithfield soon. Wagner is a sneaky team in the NEC, and if they come back from this COVID outbreak healthy, can be a team to watch (ATS). Big East Basketball is SO BACK. Providence, UConn, Creighton, Seton Hall, Marquette, St. John's, DePaul?! These teams combined record are 42-6. URI is a legit team in the A10 and the Mitchell twins are an elite duo. The battle at the top of the rankings will definitely be a doozy this season. Let's start off December hot! Here are my picks for today.
Original closing line about Duke at 11:32PM 11/30/21
The wagon of the year at the moment is none other than Duke. They took down No. 9 Kentucky on night one, and the top team in Gonzaga last week. Don't sleep on the Blue Devils and Coach K with his final ride.
