Thought for sure our weekly Hump Day dogs article was finished for the season, but since we have put together a sensational 21-9 record (70%) for the season, we get to produce one encore performance.
This week is completely different as we have more comparable teams from various conferences playing in what are expected to be closer contests. This time of year in the early rounds of conference tournaments, this is reflected in the college basketball odds.
In reviewing the numbers for Wednesday from the various tourney’s, we will head to the Big East and Conference USA for our college basketball picks focused on underdogs.
With the Big Ten having left the Big Apple, the Big East takes over Madison Square Garden and the festivities start with a classic matchup. The name are familiar, St. John’s (15-16, 13-15-1 ATS) and Georgetown (15-14, 12-13-1 ATS) and decades ago, these teams would meet in the semi-finals or finals on Friday or Saturday night in early March, not on a Wednesday.
