Gotta get off the schneid somehow
I apologize to the legions of bettors, those who depend on this meaty analysis, for having left you...without a dope game to bet to. I was sick for most of the last week and wasn't able to tell you to bet on Robert Morris over Kentucky (I'm not joking). But anyway, let's get off of this slump.
I'm zero for my last 3 or 4 or something. That is unacceptable. The absolute opposite of acceptable. This is the Washington Generals to the Harlem Globetrotters as acceptability. If acceptability were a child beauty pageant, my picks over the past week were Jon-Benet Ramsey. If acceptability were a plane, my pilot was Corey Lidle. This gotta stop, son.
So no getting cute, no multiple bets, and no hockey or NCAA shizz. I'm going into my wheelhouse, and that's NBA.
SLUMPBUSTER BET: MEMPHIS -2.5 @ WASHINGTON, MEMPHIS -2.5
Washington sucks, but they haven't sucked lately. So good for them. But a short little run doesn't make me think that they are turning a corner or something. They are still just "John Wall and a couple of guys", and who even knows with John Wall. He's committed multiple turnovers this season during pregame shootarounds alone.
Memphis, on the other hand, is also hot lately. BUT, they are good. Like they've been good all year. And they play great defense, just like Indiana. That typically doesn't take a night off like offense is wont to do.
So, Memphis should win, and I'm willing to take a chance that they do so by 3 or more. So get on board with Meat, cross your fingers, and hope to win some cash, brah.
