Kansas State at KANSAS (-16)

By Bob Valentino, Featured Handicapper

Erased some of the sting from Sunday's Green Bay debacle as my 60 Dimer in the NBA on the Oklahoma City Thunder used a monster 4th quarter to win their game outright at Houston.

My NBA players are now up over 10K since my return to the site last March.

Let's head to the hardwood and get another winner for Tuesday.

BASKETBALL WINNER # 18 of 26

COLLEGE WINNER # 4 IN A ROW

60 DIME
Winner # 33 of 49

AAC Game of the Year

Wichita State-USF

Time to make some cold, hard cash and I will do so with this winner in college hoops.

Let's cash this one in as I make it 4 in a row - Georgia, St. Louis and VCU last week - in the college ranks on the plus side.

Go ahead and lay the big number with the Jayhawks in their home game against the Wildcats.

This is not a vintage Bruce Weber Kansas State team as evidenced by their 8-9 season mark and their lowly 65.6 points per game output for the season to date. The Wildacts had lost 4 straight in conference play before somehow mustering 84 points over the weekend in their home upset win over West Virginia. Don't expect another upset tonight in Lawrence where Rock Chalk Jayhawk returns after playing their last pair on the Big Twelve road.

Bill Self's team was beaten by Baylor in their last home game, but are 8-1 straight up this year and are averaging 76. points per game for the year. KU is also holding opponents to just 60.6 points per game on defense, and come into this game having held 7 of their last 8 opponents to 57 points or less with the Baylor loss being the lone exception.

K-State did end a long series losing streak to Kansas with their win last February in Manhattan, but with 3 double-digit scorers having graduated from last year's Big Dance team, the Wildcats figure to lose touch with a Jayhawks team that did win by 15 points in last season's meeting at the Allen Fieldhouse, and have won by double-digits in each of their last 3 series wins over Kansas State.

Guard Devon Dotson is back in the lineup for Kansas, as the guard scored 21 points in Kansas' 66-57 road win and cover at Texas in KU's last game.

Strong defense coupled with facing a team that is offensively-challenged will lead to a Kansas blowout once these 40 minutes are over and done.

Take Kansas minus the points for Tuesday.

Texas Tech (-3) at TCU

By Stephen DeAngelo, Featured Handicapper

Another day, another never-in-doubt easy winner. This time, it was West Virginia getting the job done, as the Mountaineers crushed Texas 97-59 Monday night as a nine-point chalk.

 

With that 40 Dimer in the bank, I’ve now delivered five straight winning days, which have produced 190 Dimes of profit— meaning $100 bettors are up $1,900 just since Thursday!

 

That West Virginia winner also continued my incredible basketball run, as I’ve now nailed 12 of my last 14 college and NBA selections, including the last four in a row. Check out the results:

 

Thursday: BYU (30 Dime) over San Diego

Friday: 76ers (30 Dime) over Bulls

Saturday: Maryland (40 Dime) over Purdue

Monday: West Virginia (40 Dime) over Texas

 

Throw in Sunday’s 50 Dime laugher on the 49ers over the Packers, and there’s your 5-0 run for 190 Dimes! Now here comes my sixth straight winner, as I’ve got 30 Dime Winner #3 in a Row and #9 of 10 locked and loaded on Florida vs. LSU in SEC action.

 

Guys, not only am I scalding hot with that 12-2 basketball run, but I’ve been delivering the goods all season long in college basketball—we’re talking a 13-5 record for 255 Dimes of net profit, including 9-2 with my last 11 on the college hardwood (for 213 Dimes).

 

I said it yesterday in this space, and I’ll repeat it again: If you like making easy money, you need to be on the D-Train right now—and I’m not talking about purchasing a one-day ticket. Do yourself (and your bankroll) a favor and invest in a season-long pass right now!

That’s now four out of five complimentary winners after the Jazz annihilated the Pacers on Monday night. For Tuesday’s freebie, it’s back to the college hardwood as we’ll take a shot with Texas Tech as a slight road favorite at TCU.

 

Through their first five games of the Big 12 campaign, the Red Raiders have developed an obvious pattern: They’ve struggled against the conference’s best teams (losing to now top-ranked Baylor at home and No. 14 West Virginia on the road) and easily handled the league’s lesser foes, blowing out Oklahoma State (85-50) and Iowa State (72-52) at home, and Kansas State on the road (77-63).

 

And actually, this pattern pretty much applied to Texas Tech’s non-conference schedule, as well: It suffered successive losses to Iowa, Creighton and DePaul, but whipped up on a bunch of non-Division I patsies. The one outlier? A 70-57 upset victory of then No. 1-ranked Louisville (on the road) back on Dec. 10.

 

As for TCU, it followed a four-game winning streak (3-1 ATS) with a pair of ugly road losses last week to West Virginia (81-49) and Oklahoma (83-63). And while their 3-2 conference record looks decent, the reality is the Horned Frogs could easily be 1-4, as two of their victories were by a total of four points over Iowa State (81-79 at home) and Kansas State (59-57 on the road).

 

What’s more, TCU has struggled to put the ball in the hoop lately, tallying just 63, 49, 52 and 59 points in its last four games. Why does that matter? Because Texas Tech’s defense has been sensational in recent weeks, holding 10 straight opponents to 66 points or less, with six of those scoring 58 or fewer. Over this 10-game span, the Red Raiders are allowing a scant 59.1 ppg.
