Behind Enemy Lines in the Final Four

Well, it was more of the same for us in the tournament as Butler pulled away in the end and covered so we’ve dropped to 2-4 in the Big Dance but we still have a chance to get even if we can run the next two games so let’s get to it. In the second leg of the Final Four I like the Kentucky Wildcats (-1.5 buy the hook) to hold down the rest of the Huskies and win a close one. The Cats have the athletes to switch all perimeter screens which is going to make Walker really work to get good looks and I don’t see him dropping 30 on the UK. That’s the evening chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your glove’s up.

Yo, this is Nicky and I know we haven’t done well in the dance this year (2-3) and normally we would stay off when we’re getting whacked with plenty of NBA and MLB to play but this is the Final Four and you gotta grab a gun and stand a post so let’s get to it. In the first game I like the VCU Rams (+3.5) I think the points will make a difference and their atheism will keep this one close and give them a chance to win it. I don’t expect them to shoot the 3 as well as they did against Kansas and I have some concerns about “Cavern Fever” as playing in such a big place often causes outside shooter s to have a bad game but even if they start off slowly, I look for them to press, change tempo and keep this close down to the wire. I look for this game to come to a two possession game and I like the points. That’s the early chowder, I’m Nicky, I’ll see you for the late game but in the meantime, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
