It’s the first Friday of college hoops. This blog will show a log of how I do against the spread (A.T.S.). Hence, Matt’s ATS is born.
Georgetown is giving three points, even though Oregon just suspended starting point guard Dominic Artis for selling apparel. That would be my first Matty D Guarantee of the season, but I spend those very frugally. Take Georgetown to the bank.
Wisconsin can go an entire half not scoring 15 points, so laying 5 1/2 is a difficult concept. However, I see their defense giving St. John’s difficulty. Steve Lavin normally has a raw athletic bunch, so I’ll predict it takes them some weeks before figuring out how to play offense together. The Wisconsin Badgers understanding defense will outweigh that athleticism. Give that 5 1/2 and enjoy Jimmy Jackson’s kid play ball.
If you’ve read my blog, the next prediction is not a shocker. I’m taking Colorado with the six points. However, I think Baylor will be very good this season with the big man in his sophomore campaign.
Matts ATS – I will update this document throughout the season with my progress.
