8* Take Rhode Island (#671)

Rhode Island is starting to roll, coming off arguably their best game of the year, a 20 point blowout vs George Mason.  Point guard & leading scorer Fatts Russell was bursting with confidence following the game; a game where the Rams finally avoided the turnovers that had been plaguing them: “It’s been hard, in general, trying to find chemistry with each other.  It’s a lot of new guys.  We didn’t really know each other at first – where we want the ball and things like that.  It seems like it’s coming together now.  We’re getting a feel for each other.  I feel like guys are getting a feel for Coach Cox.  It’s time to start getting things rolling.”

While the Rams are an undervalued commodity starting to roll, Duquesne is simply a mess.  They’ve lost three key rotation pieces since their opener, including preseason All-A-10 standout Sincere Carry as well as Maceo Austin and Lamar Norman Jr.  They’ve failed to crack 50 points in three of their last four games, riding an 0-5 ATS skid into Wednesday – the markets haven’t crashed on the Dukes quickly enough.  Perhaps they will after another loss tonight…..Take URI


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
