Boston University vs. Holy Cross Prediction

Holy Cross/Boston University Over 61 *1st Half (-110) Bet $100 to collect $190. Caesars has the best odds, click here

We're going to Caesars for this one since they offer a line that is too good to be true. I have no clue what these people could be thinking with this one. It's crazy. You are not jumping out of an airplane with no parachute crazy but still, pretty crazy. If you go to DraftKings right now, you'll see them posting 62.5 (-110) for this thing. First-half lines should not be 1.5 points off from each other. That's wild.

This is one of those bets that looks like it has no chance of winning but in reality, actually, it has no chance of losing (as of right now). We've got a team in Boston U that's not that good at basketball. Cards are on the table here people. I'm not going to lie to you. The thing is, we only need about 30 out of them for this thing to win which isn't crazy. That's 1.5 points per minute. The last time they were at home against a team of Holy Cross's ilk, they hung 30 and the time before that, they went for 36.

What you want in a bet like this is two teams that don't play defense whatsoever and we have that here. Granted neither plays at a fast pace, but the total is 61. That is an incredibly low bar to get over. Put it this way, the last time Holy Cross went on the road against another Patriot League bottom feeder, they put up 38 in the first half against Bucknell. I'm just saying, 38 would be a giant number tonight given that would mean Boston U only has to put up 23 which they can do easily. Not for nothing, but these are my favorite type of NCAAB bets and this one feels like free money. It just does.
