I wouldn't bet the cover either.

I have faith in the Zags. They are really good.

LMU is just better than that spread.

bodog gives 12 points as well, the o/u is 110.

betus has the same, with a moneyline of +650/-900

Tricky business going on as the line opened at GU -12.5, and 80% of the public (read squares) money is on Zags to cover, then the number drops to Zags -12 as the pros steamed money on LMU.

One pro, however, noted appropriately that the Lions looked gassed at the end of last nite's close game and are now facing their 3rd game in as many nites. GU rested, tested and ready for revenge? Thinking here is that Matty B will look to rectify, perhaps, his worse game of the year. As he goes, so go the Bulldogs. Lions play close first half, succumb to fouls and fatigue in the second, but cover when Matty misses the second of two free throws w/5 seconds left: Final: 83-71.

i'd take LMU and the points if I was down there. Who knows though last year I took the zags and the points in each WCC tourney game and made $500 off of them. I had a strong feeling about them though last year, this year not sure if they care as much to win it all.

I think Duke was the worst....

The over/under is 110? Is that right? I would bet the house on over if that was the case.

Just checked. The o/u is 150. At 110, I was seriously thinking of finding a bookie.

bodog now has the zags at -115 and LMU at -105. and still 12 points. they also have a side bet of if the total score will be 150. That o/u is -110 both ways (less than 150 pts scored, and more than).

betus.com still has it at -110 wth 12 points. Same moneylines. They also have a prop for total points scored by each team. LMU is at 69 points at -115 and GU at 81 at -115.

OK, I really know nothing of gaming. BTW, the Zags will win by 13.;)

LOL! Basically the more negative the number the more favored that side of the bet. The more positive is assigned to the underdog.

Here's info on over/under
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Over-under

To calculate payoffs, for an over/under of -110 you have to wager $110 to win $100. If the value is +110 that means you bet $100 to win $110. You don't win much by betting a heavy fave, obviously!

Pinnacle has it at -12.5. I had to take the points and LMU but really only because of past games; Zags did not cover well this year.

My gut tells me Zags win this in a laffer, but my spreadsheet says not too bet it.
