We are back with the Morning Juice, even though it’s not the morning. This weekend I gave you 10 bets, we went 6-4. Combined, I am 40-18-1 which is 68% so there is room to approve. Let’s ride.
Tennessee scores 82.8 points per game and they are coming off their biggest win of the season, at least in SEC play. On Saturday, they manhandled Kentucky. They challenged every shot and just were the aggressor in the game and for them to be successful, that has to continue. Bone is the key for this team. Williams and Schofield are their main contributors, but this team will only go as far as Bone can take them. For Mississippi State, the average around 77 points per game along with allowing 68.8 points. This team is a real hit or miss. Weatherspoon and Perry need to play hard every single minute while knocking down shots, too. The X-Factor is definitely Quinndary, one of the Weatherspoon’s. If he can get hot early, Mississippi has a chance, but I do not think Tennessee allows that to happen. I think Tennessee comes in slow, coming off of their huge victory, but they’ll close them out, much like the Vanderbilt game. Tennessee -8 and the under 144.
The game of the night, in my opinion. Florida State is such a tease, to be honest. Some games they’ll come out and score 80-90 and only give up around 60 but they can also go into spells where they go dormant from the field and lose low scoring games. They average 76.3 points per game while allowing 67.8 points per game. On the other hand, Virginia Tech is coming off a season defining win against Duke. Sure Duke is without Zion, but they beat a very good Duke team by 5 points. This is the momentum that they need. They average 74.5 points per game while allowing 61.5. Now, my heart tells me to take the underdog. It’s a home game and they should win, but Virginia Tech is needing a huge win and they could pull it off here. The spread is FSU -3.5 but take FSU Moneyline and the over 134. This game will keep your interest all night and let’s make some money off of it.
Kentucky is coming off one of their worst games of the season and they are in need of a huge bounce back. PJ Washington, Tyler Herro, and Ashton Hagans probably played their worst game collectively in the Kentucky uniform and I think they know that. They’re coming into this game with a chip on their shoulder and they’ll come out quick. They average 77.1 points per game while allowing 65.1. Last game, Kentucky only scored 52. Pathetic. For Ole Miss, they live and die by the 3. They average 76.1 points per game while allowing 70.4. Breein Tyree is who to watch for Ole Miss. The junior guard averages 19 points per game and shoots 40% from three. If Ole Miss wants to win this game, they need him to hit those shots. For Kentucky, let’s not let our best player in the game be Nick Richards. Kentucky needs this game and then they’ll have Reid back. Once Reid comes back they’ll be fine, but they really need this game. With the best rebounders in basketball, Kentucky wins this game 69-65. I would take Ole Miss +5.5 and the under 141.
Let’s go win some money.
