UNDERS  ---  4-0-0  (36-19-2 = 65.5%)

TOP CONSENSUS  ---  Wofford was the only play to get 4 NET LOCKS, so the Top CONSENSUS record moves to 5-1-1.

ALL CONSENSUS PLAYS  ---  Wofford was all there was, so the OVERALL CONSENSUS RECORD is now 12-6-2.
LOCK of the Day goes to  ---  carpetdaddy for LOCKing up the Thunder against all logic and clearly against the board when there was a CONSENSUS on the Mavs until carpetdaddy LOCKed the Thunder and moved the net number of LOCKS on the Mavs to 3 and preventing it from being a CONSENSUS play.


CONSENSUS plays (at least 4 NET plays on one side) for Monday (to this point - stats change as more LOCKS come in) --

Cincinnati (-2) is and early CONSENSUS with a NET of 4 LOCKS.  More LOCKS will certainly come in, though.
Florida State
is cthe top play at this point with 6 LOCKS for and one on Duke.
Arsenal (-1) is very close to our first soccer CONSENSUS ever with 3 LOCKS in favor so far.
Oklahoma State (-5) is a CONSENSUS play at this point with 4 LOCKS and none against.

 

TOP LOCKERS LOCKS for today.  Records are based on the new standings that began last Thursday.

CONSENSUS and Top LOCKers for 03/03/09

I am hard on the UNDER 5.5.  Just trying to have some hope on CBJ, they are offensively challenged.  Hitch has played to their only strength which is goaltending and as a rookie Mason can't lead them to victory evey game.  Whoever wins it will be low scoring.

Thanks picaxe.

But its about time the Kings get a win on this trip.  A bunch of hard-fought one-goal losses have all but blown them out of the playoff picture right now.  They really need a point or two tonight.

Holmey keep up the good work with the thread and blog.  I know your time isn't free, and you do this out the good of your heart.  Thanks for correcting my name. 

Having said that...Too bad your Kings are going down tonight in Columbus.
