Early Friday Games: Picks and Open Thread

New, 14 comments

I’m off to Vegas for the rest of the weekend’s action, but the coverage of the tournament will continue uninterrupted here at BON. Before today’s picks, a review of the tournament’s first day, during which I bested AW against the spread on day one for the third year in a row. Don’t be fooled: this happens every year. AW comes limping out of the gate, I start with a flourish, and by the time the second round is complete I’ve totally fallen apart and Andrew’s ahead. On straight up and over/under picks, AW’s already got the lead:

AGAINST THE SPREAD:  PB [10-6]  /  AW  [7-9]

STRAIGHT UP:  PB [12-4]  /  AW [13-3]

OVER/UNDER:  PB [9-6-1]  /  AW [10-5-1]

On to today’s morning games...
