Western Michigan at BUTLER (-18')
By Bob Valentino, Featured Handicapper
Day idle on Tuesday as there were no sports to wager on. Definitely been a strange sports year with COVID-19 running rampant and I sure hope you and your families are staying healthy. Especially so during this Thanksgiving holiday week.
When last I left off, back-to-back 75 Dime Winners in the NFL for you. Titans outright on Sunday and the Rams outright on Monday.
College basketball getting underway tonight and I am sizing up this non-conference battle between Wisconsin Green Bay and Minnesota.

The long-term numbers show that I am still very profitable, time now to make some money short-term.
All set to get after it for this Wednesday before your Thanksgiving Day NFL winner.
Hoops action for tonight!
Blowout a-brewing at the famed Hinkle Fieldhouse this Wednesday night when Butler welcomes MAC rep Western Michigan to their hardwood.
The Broncos are tabbed to finish in last place in the preseason standings as this is a team that went 13-19 overall last year and will have a new head coach in Clayton Bates.
Western's road mark last season was just 3-12 straight up and in their first big non-conference game a season ago they were blowout out by Ole Miss. More of the same on-tap tonight when they take on the Bulldogs.
Butler went 22-9 last season and tonight they put a 58 game home winning streak against non-conference opponents on the line. They have also won 21 straight home openers heading into tonight's contest.
Aaron Thompson is Butler's go-to guy and he is now a senior this season providing key leadership for this defensively tough unit.
Expect Butler to play tough defense and for this game to get out of hand early tonight in favor of the Bulldogs.
Butler names it tonight.

L.A. Rams-Tampa Bay Over the Total
I made you money in October.
I am making you MORE money here in November, tonight I do it in college basketball.
My comp play in hoops tonight is the Peacocks of St. Pete's to hang in there against the Red Storm of St. John's.
This looks like too many points for a Johnnies team that starts the new season without last year's leading scorer LJ Figueroa - who transferred to Oregon - for Mike Anderson's crew.
The Peacocks come into this game having won 8 of their last 9 games before the season was halted. This MAAC rep was up to 18-12 on the season and into the semis of their conference tourney before the pandemic abruptly shut things down.
KC Ndefo was the conference's defensive player of the year and it's best 6th man. He is back on this year's squad which also features Doug Edert and Daryl Banks III who both made the preseason third team in the MAAC for this upcoming season.
Bottom line: there is enough talent on this year's Peacocks team to make a game of it against the Red Storm before bowing.
Take the points.
