NCAA Friday Cash-In

After an exciting 2-0 Thursday night we are back at it again for a pair of Friday games. We are 3-1 on the week and riding some momentum and good fortune to bring you a couple of winners to close out the work week. Good luck everyone! Play with confidence!

Russell Athletic Bowl 
Rutgers (9-3 SU, 5-7 ATS) vs. 
Virginia Tech (6-6 SU, 4-8 ATS)
Line: VT -1 O/U: 42
After getting off to a great start to the season, Rutgers has stumbled as of late losing 3 of their last 5 including their last 2, knocking them out of BCS Bowl contention. The Scarlet Knights boast the 6th best defense in the nation allowing just 14.3 points per game. On the other side of the ball, Virginia Tech comes in off of a disappointing season at just 6-6. They are however coming in on a strong note having won their final two regular season games, albeit failing to cover in both games. VT scores 26.1ppg while allowing 23.9. Neither team as been very good against the spread this season, leaving you trend bettors with a lot to be desired. Head to head the Scarlet Knights are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games against the Hokies. Overall, VT has won 11 in a row against Rutgers. The games have gone under the total points in four of their last five games overall. 

Given all of this information there are really two plays you could go with. Rutgers was a BSC hopeful just a few weeks ago. They are going up against a team that barley made a bowl game. Given the strength of the defenses a case could be made for the under in this one as well. We are going with what we feel will be the safer choice...

 Meineke Car Care Bowl
Minnesota Golden Gophers (6-6 SU, 5-7 ATS) vs. 
Texas Tech Red Raiders (7-5 SU, 6-6 ATS)
Line: TxTec -13, O/U: 54.5
Coming of a 3-9 season in 2011, Minnesota started 4-0 this season before losing six of its last eight games and backed into the post season. On the other side of the ball, Texas Tech comes into the game having failed to cover in each of their final five games of the season, allowing an average of 42.6 points per game in that span. The Golden Gophers score 21.3 points per game while allowing 23.9. The Red Raiders score 37.8 while allowing 31.8. Minnesota was 2nd to last in a division that had a down year across the board. They have a decent defense but really struggle to put points up on the board. Texas Tech can score with the best of them but have a ho-hum defense. Most on the money has come in on Tech moving this line up to 13. We agree with the betting public.
