Yes goo. I'm playing $20 a star. And trying to be more consistent and responsible this year in the sizes and consistencies of my wagers.

Many the years I picked over .500, but lost money due to poor money management. I'm up $265 so far in the NCAA.

YTD 31-19-1

3* 0-1
2* 7-3
1* 24-15-1

Weird spot for Rutgers here, laying more than a FG on the road against a capable division foe. Still, I see them as being a little too much for So Flo right now. They are well coached, have an experienced defense, and are the best rushing team in the nation. And playing with a chip on their shoulder. Laying more than a FG makes me a little nervous, but I still like em enough for a small play.

1* Rutgers -3.5

Cant resist going against the Irish. After seeing how bad MSU really is I think I like Purdue to cover and maybe even win outright.

purdue (+15.5) 1*

UTEP game still pending, they're leading by 11 in the 3rd. Cover there would be huge for me, and give me a 6-2 (and very profitable) Saturday.

YTD 36-22-1 (+$357)

3* 1-1
2* 9-5
1* 26-17-1
