My first Bracketology of the season will be coming sometime next week after the 24 hour marathon. I've already got my list of conference champions and at larges but I'm gonna wait until some basketball's played before I order everyone. Either way I hope to do picks every day and maybe some analysis from time to time too. College basketball's my jam and hopefully the every day nature of it can breathe some new life in to this blog. But hopefully you've learned by now not to hold your breath with me on this or with anything I do in life really. Off we go.
William & Mary +18 @ Florida. This has fallen from 20 but 60% of the money is on Florida, which tells me the sharps are on Bill & Mary. The Gators are actually usually pretty good at blowing mid majors out in November/December and their line is tempting but they're pretty much completely starting over and no Walker hurts. Plus Bill & Mary covered this by a point at Wichita last year - a better team with an equally difficult if not better home court advantage; they should be able to be competitive here. This might be one of the lines I'm least confident all day though just because it's very possible the Tribe brick all their 3's against a Gator team that will still defend and get blown out.
Indiana -26.5 v. Mississippi Valley State. SWAC school.
Wichita State -12.5 v. New Mexico State. Arguably the best game of the day and yet I'm taking the Shockers to win by at least 13.
