It’s still early on the gambling day on Thursday’s picks, but we’re sitting at 9-6-1 and I’m kicking myself for switching to the over in Tennessee-Wright State from Tennessee -12 just before I clicked publish. But that’s par for the course when you gamble on 32 games in two days, you’re going to win some close ones and lose some close ones. (By the way, South Dakota State, how about figuring out a way to cover when you’re +8 and tied with 1:30 to play? That one was tough.)
Friday in Vegas we will be have an Outkick meet up at 4 pacific brought to you SportsBook Review at the Mirage on the strip.
Hope to see some of y’all there. (And also thanks to the Outkick VIP crew who watched last night’s live Periscope gambling preview show from inside my hotel room. That was fun.)
Okay, here we go with the picks. My blood bank guarantee is the over in the Lipscomb and UNC games.
