Results of our predictions for Friday, Dec. 21, 2018
In today’s Philly Props pick, we told you winless La Salle was going to beat winless Alabama A&M and suggested the game could be a blowout. It was. La Salle won 80-57. Congrats to Ashley Howard for his first win as coach of the Explorers.
Today’s hockey pick also was a winner: We liked the Devils -170 to beat the Senators and they came through with a 5-2 win.
Marquette’s Markus Howard, all 5-11 of him, ruined two of our picks today. Our straight-up bet of Buffalo to cover +3.5 went down in flames thanks to Howard’s 45-point night. He also ruined the Friday Teaser. That +8.5 wasn’t enough for Buffalo, who lost 103-85, after being down 1 at the half. The other half of the teaser did well as Princeton in a pick ’em with Lafayette, won by 2, 81-79. Our other college hoops pick, Oklahoma +3 at Northwestern, was a winner. Oklahoma won outright, 76-69 in OT.
