Butler vs. Connecticut Odds NCAA National Championship 2011

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

It’s Butler and Connecticut in the 2011 National Championship game and the odds are up.  Connecticut is (-4.5) with a total of 129. The moneyline has the Huskies (-208)

Grandmaster Sports Handicapper Joe Duffy, CEO of OffshoreInsiders.com, the top sports betting site in the world of course sweeps the board in basketball with Connecticut, the game under, and Butler. In the NBA, Memphis made it 4-0.

Here is what professional sports bettors got before the game in basketball from GodsTips.

CBB

Wise Guy…

CONNECTICUT +2.5 Kentucky

UConn is the perfect Adrian Barbeau teams that win big games in the Dance. They are very top heavy with the nation’s best go-to guy Kemba Walker and the newest No. 2 guy Jeremy Lamb.

Now we won’t deny, Kentucky did beat a top-heavy team in Ohio State, though by just two points. However while OSU had inside monster Jared Sullinger and outside shooter William Buford, what Kemba Walker can do is create shots.

Kentucky is outstanding and challenging shots, but Walker is quick and as good as it gets in finding seams. He is an underrated distributor and Lamb’s emergence is huge.

Kentucky was dominated once this year. It was a neutral court. The team was UConn. The Huskies are the best team from the best conference and win outright.

Major…

Connecticut-Kentucky UNDER 140

This is a competitor consensus. If we have a lean one way and one of the few sports services or sources we respect has a big pick on a certain side, we pass along as a competitor consensus.

BUTLER -2.5 Virginia Commonwealth

Look Butler is clearly for real. No team has won more in March with their current crop of talent than Butler, a team in the Final 4 for the second straight time. Everyone forgets this team was nationally ranked all last year. The only thing Cinderella is they are from a non-BCS conference.

VCU is up there with George Mason and Penn and true glass slipper teams as many though VCU shouldn’t be here. Guess what happened to the true Cinderella teams in the Final 4? Both crash and burned in the semis. LSU was the third lowest seed to make the Final 4. They also lost by double-digits in the semis.

Butler is very good at controlling the clock and will take VCU out of their rhythm. History says teams like VCU find out the Final 4 is the great equalizer. It happens again.

NBA

Major…

MEMPHIS -13 Minnesota

With O.J. Mayo stepping up in the absence of Rudy Gay, the Grizz have not missed a beat. They match up well to Minnesota.

The Grizzlies won 102-84 and 104-95 at Target Center in February and 109-89 in Memphis in season’s third game back in October.

Memphis, as much as any team in the NBA, plays so much better at home than on the road. The Grizz are +6.8 points per game at home compared to Minny -9.7 on the road.

Both teams are playing their third game in four nights including playing back-to-back nights.  But Memphis has more depth and the Wolves are playing a brutal stretch in which their previous five games were to Dallas, Oklahoma City, Boston, Chicago, and Miami.

Sports Service and Sports Handicappers Picks For Final 4

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

Who is hot and who has the big plays? Here is every sports service pick needed for the Final 4 games Connecticut-Kentucky, VCU-Butler, plus MLB picks, and NBA picks as well. There is even a Women’s NCAA Tournament spread pick.

First from the The Canadian Crew: The VCU vs. Butler total is the best bet of the day without question. Adjustments and matchups and likely scenarios that will play out make this over/under just too good. Also get a standard play lock on Connecticut vs. Kentucky too. Yet another winning month is in full swing! The Best Bet of Final 4, Butler and Virginia Commonwealth total tops the card.

Now to the winningest handicapper ever, GodsTips. The Lord of the Dance owns the Final 4 again. Both side selections are up. The Wise Guy is on UConn and Kentucky side, plus we have the total on that game. Get three Final 4 plays from the winningest handicapper who has ever lived.

Added are two MLB sides, an NBA winner, and even an NCAA women’s basketball winner from a very trusted source at OffshoreInsiders.com

Matt Rivers, who was the winningest handicapper ever—nobody came close—on a large network of sites has an ultra ultra rare losing 2-2 Friday as the big play on Oregon laying four won but did not cover. A tad of rough luck there. A 2-0 sweep on the diamond in my first two baseball plays including the Orioles plus 170 and the White Sox by a million runs. Still feeling super good and ready to inflict more pain on that Crookie.

Three winners today, 400,000* UCONN-Kentucky, 300,000* VCU-Butler and a 200,000* Pirates-Cubs. The numbers speak for themselves and they grow even larger right here and now!

Stevie Vincent has a big card. Forensic sports handicapping says both sides UConn/Kentucky, Butler/VCU rise to the level of premium lock plays and the earlier tipoff is a Level 5. So is a pro basketball game. Get ready to sweep, sweep, sweep again.

Now to Power of 620 sports services behind every selection, the MasterLockLine:

An incredible March put him back into the positive side this year, but he has had 22 winning days overall in March and is 26-6 with all college plays, inside and outside the Dance. March Madness Game of the Year Kentucky over North Carolina won last Sunday. You know it’s legit because you got them all here.  NCAA Tournament Bet of the Year on the Kentucky/Connecticut total

Staff Purchase Play, this is when we pay a major sports service to release a major play before the sports service itself does. Major radio tout advertising on 200 plus radio stations, local and network hit their March Madness Stone Cold Lock of the Year on Butler over Florida last Saturday. You know it’s legit because you got them all here. Stone Cold College Parlay of the Year, both sides VCU/Butler, UConn/Kentucky. They are selling it for $499. You have it for pennies

Service out of the southeast is without any debate the top big play service since summer of 2009 with big plays. Their biggest play is a Deposit Slip in which they average less than two per week. Just the 8th NBA Deposit Slip all season on Oklahoma City/LA Clippers side

Baseball service out of Detroit became the first service EVER to have three straight MLB seasons in which they won at least 40 units (one unit per bet) in 2006-08. In 2009, they “dropped to +31.7 units” still 13th in the world. We ride history in 2010. Their Mandated Bets have an unprecedented rate of return of any sports service rated bets in any sport.

Kal Elner is ranked No. 11 all-time in MLB handicapping based on units won. However, he is probably the top early season handicapper ever on baseball as he spends about two weeks at Spring Training and spots who will come out of the gate quickly or slowly.  Two more for Saturday, a side and a total.

NCAA Final 4 Updated Odds and Free MLB Pick From Matt Rivers

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

The morning line for the 2011 Final 4, Virginia Commonwealth vs. Butler and Kentucky vs. Connecticut has not seen a lot of movement and are presented below.

OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a free pick Saturday on the Houston Astros (+225) at Philadelphia.

Reasoning: I never mind teams that are coming off of horrific losses and that is the case with the Houston Astros after blowing the 4-0 lead very late yesterday. Professionals just seem to bounce back a lot more than they don’t no matter the situation and at this quality take back why not back the visitors from Houston?

Of course Cliff Lee has the upside of any pitcher in the game today, save maybe Roy Halladay, and could twirl a gem against any team and that certainly includes the mediocre at the very best Astros. But there is something right now about Charlie Manual’s offense with Chase Utley out that I do not like. Ryan Howard and the boys did not look very good yesterday at all. They did win in the end thanks to a bunch of key singles but I do not believe this team is locked and loaded. We saw a bunch of ice cold hitting from the Phils last season as they struggled immensely at times. How they wound up winning 97 games or whatever truly was a miracle as they just weren’t that good a lot of the time.

Wandy Rodriguez gets the ball for the Astros and the lefty at times can be awesome. He was not that good in the first half of last season but this kid has high quality stuff and certainly can neutralize Howard, Raul Ibanez and whatever lefty is in the Philadelphia lineup.

If Lee is lights out and just too good then I will tip my cap. But Rodriguez can match him with some zeros of his own and after yesterday’s rough beat and at this big-time take back I am fine with Hunter Pence, Michael Bourn and the Astros today.

Top expert pick on this game: Houston Astros

For more information: An ultra rare losing 2-2 Friday as the big play on Oregon laying four won but did not cover. A tad of rough luck there. A 2-0 sweep on the diamond in my first two baseball plays including the Orioles plus 170 and the White Sox by a million runs. Still feeling super good and ready to inflict more pain on that Crookie.

MLB Baseball Betting Picks: Mariners vs. White Sox

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a free pick Friday is on the Seattle Mariners (+103) White Sox.

Trevor Cahill had a breakout season last year and probably is a legitimate and very good pitcher but to get money with Felix Hernandez is just way too good to pass up.

The A’s are probably the superior team when compared to Ichiro and the Mariners but it’s not as if that is courtesy of their offense. Oakland’s lineup is once again extremely mediocre, even with the addition of Hideki Matsui, and without a doubt could get completely shut down and shutout today by Hernandez. There are still a lot of average journeymen type bats in their order that are behind the eight ball up against Hernandez in this thing.

The Seattle hurler is arguably the best pitcher on the planet right now. If his team supported him at all last season he would have had many more wins than he had and would have been a runaway Cy Young award winner. The guy is just filthy and flat out dominant and no matter how great of a season Cahill is coming off of he is just not on the level of his mound combatant and shouldn’t be today.

Oakland is at home and should have more victories when all is said and done but that wouldn’t be the case if Hernandez was able to pitch all 162 games so being the better team overall is very irrelevant regarding today’s one single game. To not have to lay money with King Felix against pretty much anybody is a semi steal and against the good but nothing more A’s is an absolute must play today.

Top expert pick on this game: Seattle

For more information: I’m truly not sure what else I can say if you’re not already convinced. I have literally won money 20 of the last 26 days and profited right at 6 million* in that span. I am in a zone that few people have ever been in and in no way, shape or form is anything going to change today or in the near future. 400,000* Wichita State was the toughest win I’ve had in a while and they covered by 7 points. It’s just been that easy!

The most amazing thing is that I am in absolute love with today’s slate and am running the gamut with college hoops, NBA hoops and baseball. Highest rated and monster 500,000* between Creighton and Oregon as I improve to a perfect 3-0 in this series, 300,000* Denver-Sacramento, 200,000* Chicago-Cleveland and Baltimore-Tampa Bay. Four ridiculously fire-hot plays from the hottest and best handicapper around at a dirt-cheap price! Click now to purchase

ESPN Celtics vs. Hawks Preview

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

The Boston Celtics (52-22) and the Atlanta Hawks (43-32) both played like hungry playoff teams in their last games and will look to continue that momentum on Friday when they square off in this ESPN matchup.  Boston (-1) has struggled mightily though when playing on back-to-back nights, which is the scenario here following a 107-97 victory at San Antonio on Thursday.

This will be the second consecutive nationally televised game for the Celtics, who are just 4-12 against the spread when playing with no rest this season.  They have also dropped five of their last six games straight-up in this situation due to their inability to play at a high level on consecutive days as an aging team.

However, Boston’s youngest star came through against the Spurs, as Rajon Rondo totaled a team-high 22 points and game-high 14 assists.  Rondo was 11 of 20 from the field and has scored as many points in his last two games (44) than he totaled in his previous seven combined.  The Celtics improved to 21-2 when he has at least 13 assists and stayed ahead of Miami for the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race.  They wrap up a four-game road trip in Atlanta and improved to 23-14 away from home after beating San Antonio.

The Hawks have won their last three games despite failing to score 100 points in any of them and will try to beat Boston for the first time in three meetings.  They are coming off an 85-82 home win against Orlando on Wednesday behind a game-high 26 points from Josh Smith.  Leading scorer Joe Johnson also returned after missing one game due to a thumb injury and added 18 points.

Atlanta is locked into a 4-5 playoff matchup with the Magic and could possibly face the Celtics in the second round if Boston manages to overtake Chicago for the top seed and both teams advance.  Rondo missed the first two meetings with the Hawks this season, but his teammates picked up the slack to help the Celts win both games by a combined 35 points.

Boston had lost the previous four meetings with Atlanta both SU and ATS before this season, and the OVER has cashed in three of the past four games between the teams overall.  The UNDER has cashed in the last three games for the Hawks overall while the total has gone OVER in two straight for the Celtics after 10 consecutive UNDERs.

Top expert pick on today’s card: It’s no joke. America’s Greatest wins long-term more than anyone else. But for those simply wanting to ride the hot hand, we are at the beginning of another in a never-ending line of winning streaks. We are 4-1 our last five and yes it’s the same JD of the ACC you’ve known for decades going back to the scorephone days. So if you got crushed in hoops elsewhere, start anew and have a splendid summer of underdog and small favorites winning in MLB.

The night card has winners in MLB, NBA, and college basketball including the CBI Wise Guy side. Click now to purchase
