These reports are particularly of interest to "steam" bettors and "consensus" junkies. We like to look at these numbers in contrast to the value that we see in the line. If public trends are eating at our perceived value, we prefer to get in on the games early and capture a good number, but if the trend is on the wrong side, we may prefer to wait and make our bets closer to game time to milk another half point or more out of the number.
COLLEGE BASKETBALL FREE PICK FROM JIMMY MCGUIRE
We selected this game as a free opinion today because we do not have a premium selection on it but we have done really well betting on or against Bulls games (7-2/77.80%) and we feel we have our finger on the pulse of this matchup.
This opinion all comes down to "value" or "false value" and we make that determination by looking at the point spread as it is (South Florida -2.0) compared to where we feel it should be (South Florida -0.5). From there we decide if there is any value or false value in the number by examining the public perception on the game, the early public betting trends and the situational trends in this particular matchup.
Jimmy McGuire says, take the DePaul Blue Demons 1/-105
