No need to muck up the Gopher BB thread with tournament shenanigans.

#13 Oakland hanging with #3 Kentucky approaching halftime. Gohlke for OAK is 7-13 from 3! Yes making 7 threes in a half is crazy but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player jack up 13 shots from downtown in a half.

Gohlke now with 10 threes, the record is 11. 4 minutes left OAK by 2.

Kentucky fans have entered full on panic mode.

And almost everyone with money on a bracket is with them.

This game is crazy!

29 seconds left and Oakland is up by four.  KY ball.

lol, I just looked it up, too.  

Auburn Hills is in Oakland County, MI so it must be related to that.

Wow that’s pretty amazing. Good for them.

I’m wondering if that’s the beginning of the end for Calipari? He’s won 1 tournament game in the last 3 years and also lost in the first round as a 2 seed 2 years ago. That’s not gonna do it at Kentucky.

That baseline 3 with 20 some seconds left was killer. Love the back end of the one and one free throw to make it a 4 pt lead with just seconds left after the timeout. No pressure on that one😎

edit: he was shooting two and missed the first one so not a one and one.

I can’t remember the year Gonzaga made themselves a name about 15 or 20 years ago maybe? But they drained everything from outside and you just couldn’t stop it and they were a huge bracket buster. Fun to watch unless you’re the 3 seed.

3 of my buddies are in Vegas. It’s their yearly tradition to go out to Vegas, opening round of the NCAA‘s. It was mine until I got married… lol!!! Thursdays at the Red Rock sport book for half the day and Fremont casinos for the rest. Fridays we would jump around casinos and sports books. One of my buddies bets $5 on every dog for the 1st round. He comes out ahead more times than not after the 32 games. With Vegas being in PT zone games start early and end not to late. So you have time mess around after.

I’m surprised Calipari wasn’t around 2019. I guess Kentucky is fine with elite teams with elite recruiting classes and no hardware.

That was a cold blooded shot and saved the game for them.

MSU dropped the hammer on a higher seeded sec team today, Mississippi State I think.

So, you expected them to outright lose?  They were only 1 or 1.5pt favorites. (Not that expecting a 9 seed to lose to an 8 is unusual.  Really a coin flip to me, and that 1pt spread fits that)

 

B1G refs... corrupt, or just incompetent?

If you look at Mich. State and Iowa State opening round records of covering for the past 10-15 years let alone winning, especially Iowa State. I don’t trust them and wouldn’t put $$$ on them.

I would've bet my life saving if that play was reversed, the stripes would've called clean block on Kansas.

Understandable... Though sitting in a sports book can be very entertaining. Betters are cheering for their bet to cover or the o/u. And it can get very ruckus in the closing minutes. Especially during garbage time when your bet is relying a bench warmer. 

And this is one of many reasons why I very, very seldom put $$$ on Gophers.

Understandable.  You already have an emotional investment in the Gophers winning, don't need to make it worse with the bet.   If anything, put a small bet on the opponent... that way you get some sort of consolation prize.

I rarely bet but when I do it will never be on the Gophers.  I've bet on the Vikings during a meaningless regular season game, although I can't remember the last time.

And for some weird reason I usually only bet on college fb games during the first few weeks of the season. After that I get bored even in years when I'm ahead.

Best Gopher bet of all time... Floyd Mayweather Jr. put $1M on UCLA to cover vs. Minnesota in the 1st round of the 2013 tourney. Gophers won by 20... lol!!! Couldn’t happen to a bigger jackbag even though $1M is nothing to him.

That’s called an “emotional hedge.” Your team wins, you get the pride of the win. Your team loses, you get some money to console your sorrows.

Professional bettors claim they don’t have favorite teams (which is bs because how did they get to be sports fans in the first place) and they just have favorite teams to bet on/against.

I don’t remember ever seeing a tournament game where both teams scored 100. Seems like 40 minutes isn’t enough time for that to occur.
