Wednesday's Patriot League Results:
Lafayette at Boston University, Game Over 139, $11 to win $10.
Loss: BU wins 76-60 = 136
Lehigh -4 1/2 over American, $11 to win $10
Parlay with Lafayette/BU over 139, $11 to win $29.10
WIN: Lehigh wins 78-61, easily covers.
LOSS: Lehigh covered but the Lafayette/BU game didn't. Don't bet parlays.
Teaser: Navy -2 1/2 Over Loyola MD and game under 125, $11 to win $10
LOSS: Outsmarted myself. Navy won 52-50 =102, way under 125, but a 2-point win does not cover giving 2 1/2. Boo. Don't bet teasers.
Saturday Patriot League Picks:
Loyola MD at American, 2 pm EST
Game Over 127, $11 to win $10
It's Senior Day at American and neither of these teams is playing for anything. True, neither is an offensive powerhouse, but some defensive intensity has got to be lacking. Plus they put up 151 when they played at Loyola.
Lehigh at Lafayette, 2 pm EST
Lafayette -3 1/2, $11 to win $10.
Lafayette has been playing with a bit more purpose since Coach Fran O'Hanlon announced his retirement. Today is his last home game after more than two decades with the Leopards. There's a risk his team come out too amped up and tight, but I'll take it. And yes, caveat emptor, this is a bit of a sentiment play. He's a great guy.
Navy at Colgate, 2 pm EST
Game Under 130, $11 to win $10.
Colgate's seniors will want to go out with a bang in their last home game. Navy will need to keep the game low-scoring to have a chance to win. In the first matchup, Colgate pummeled Navy 69-50 and the total was still only 119. I think it will be closer today, but think a 65-55 final sounds about right.
