Texas Tech at WEST VIRGINIA (-1')
By Gus Augustine, Featured Handicapper
My $10 bettors have made $12,150 in 49 Days after hitting back-to-back 50 Dimers over the weekend, including Sunday's 50 Dimer on the Bucs-Packers going over. That followed Saturday's 50 Dimer on West Virginia (-11) by 22 over Kansas State.
Tonight I have something twice as strong in the Western Conference with this showdown in Dallas, where the Mavericks host the Denver Nuggets.
I'm on a 12-6 roll with all 100 Dimers, and tonight I make it 13 of 19 with this near pick'em line mistake that will end with a double-digit margin.

My free winner for Monday is on the West Virginia Mountaineers against the Texas Tech Red Raiders in what will be a critical Big 12 showdown.
The Mountaineers just trounced Kansas State by 22 on Saturday, with Miles McBride leading the way with 18 points and five assists, and they should be plenty warmed up and ready to go against the Red Raiders.
West Virginia is allowing a mere 68.1 points per game on just 42.3% shooting. The Mountaineers do a good job on the glass as well, with a +3.7 rebound margin.
And since the Red Raiders' three conference losses came when they hit 40% or less from the floor, I'm thinking this game could be a problem against Press Virginia.
Oklahoma has been the only team over West Virginia's last five trips to the court, to hit bettern than 30% from the 3-point range, and the Sooners still lost. The Mountaineers defend the perimeter well, and make it hard to penetrate high-percentage, 2-point shots.
Lay the small home number.

This one is another easy money winner. All about settling in on the hardwood now until Super Sunday arrives, and I do so here on Monday with this Red Raiders-Mountaineers winner from Morgantown.
Monday comp play is to take the points with the underachieving Sun Devils as they bring just a 4-7 mark into this battle with rival Arizona.
Arizona State is riding a 5 game straight up slide after losing last Thursday at home in Tempe to the Wildcats by just a basket, 84-82. Their previous loss occurred by just a point at Oregon State as 3 of their last 4 losses have been by 6 points or less!
Arizona is on a 2- game winning streak and are 11-3 now for the season. Problem for the Wildcats is the fact they have failed the spread in 3 of 4 this season now when laying -1 to -7 points.
The Sun Devils have still won 3 of the last 5 series meetings and have covered in 4 of those 5.
Another close one tonight in this Pac 12 rivalry.
Take State plus the points to cover.
