Portland vs. BYU Expert Pick – March 3, 2023

Portland vs. BYU Expert Pick - March 3, 2023

PORTLAND VS. BYU EXPERT PICK - MARCH 3, 2023 - I’m at MGM Grand National Harbor in Maryland, taking a break from politics at the CPAC convention. I’m in the sports bar looking at tonight’s college hoops card.

I’ve only bet one OVER/UNDER game in my life. That was a Raiders vs. Oilers Monday night game in the Astrodome in 1976. The score was 0-0 at the half. I bet the OVER. I lost. 

47 years later I’m doing it again.

Defense Matters

I like the over at 153 in the Portland vs  BYU game. 


Portland scored 92 last night in trouncing San Diego.

Neither Portland or BYUplay defense worth a crap. This I a neutral site in Vegas and I see it raining threes. I’ll be cashing my ticket at the 6:00 mark of the second half.
