Where Are The Public Favorites and Bubble Teams Now?

Handicapping Tips From Legendary High Roller TONY SALINAS!


I told you it was going to happen. Then it happened!

The public teams either failed to cover most of their first game spreads, or lost their games outright. A lot of the bubble teams choked so bad that the NIT doesn't even want them any more, but they'll have to take them to fill out their brackets.

Where are they now?!

*Where are Syracuse...and Wake Forest...and Villanova...and Clemson...big name basketball programs in marquee conferences? They're not playing any big games today or tomorrow. Their tournaments ended on the first day. Every single one of those highly regarded public teams lost outright as favorites.

*Where are Memphis...and UAB...and Arizona State? The TV guys kept talking about how they could win their way into the Big Dance just by reaching the finals of their conference tournaments. They all lost outright as favorites in the first round. UAB and Arizona State didn't even get close to winning. Vegas lines were inflated because those teams had a "need to win." If you need to win NOW to just to get into the NCAA Tournament, you're not that good in the first place!

*Where are teams like Texas and Connecticut who were supposedly so talented they couldn't possibly keep losing? "Look out for these guys," the media kept saying. "Nobody wants to play Texas or Connecticut in March." Are you kidding me. Who WOULDN'T want to play Texas or Connecticut in March the way they were struggling? Both lost outright by double digits as small favorites.

*Where are the Mountain West superpowers who became the latest "flavor of the month" in the mainstream media? Well, they did survive the first day. BARELY! New Mexico looked awful in sneaking past Air Force. BYU did the same against TCU. Do you know how bad Air Force and TCU are this year? San Diego State one by a point over Colorado State as a bubble team. These aren't national powers, they're media-made creations that popped up because the Pac 10 is so bad this year.

*Where are the certain blowouts from the #1 seeds? I already told you Syracuse lost. Kent State lost in the MAC. Kansas didn't play well in its first round win. Ohio State beat Michigan by a point thanks to a miracle shot at the buzzer. Duke didn't come near the spread in its opening win. Kentucky started slow in its game with Alabama (remember I told you to go against big name teams in the first half AND the full game to add to your volume of net winners), and never got close to the Vegas number.

Where are Tony Salinas's clients? In the winner's circle, that's where! I'm 11-4 since the tournaments started, and that's not counting any additional winners my guys got from adding first half action on their own (if they had the bankroll to handle it). A lot of so-called "experts" tell you what happened...AFTER it happened. I've made my name for decades telling you what's going to happen BEFORE it happens.

I told you exactly how these tournaments would play out. And, I told you my clients would win!

It's not too late to join in the fun. We've got a busy weekend on tap with semifinals and finals in all the major events (and a few mid majors too). Plus,  both the NIT and NCAA tournaments will be starting soon. Call 1-888-536-8880 to sign up for my HIGH ROLLER service. You can also purchase game day releases and packages here at the website with your credit card. It's the next best thing to standing in line with me at Caesar's Palace or the Wynn.

Public teams always take the worst of it in tournaments because they can't possibly play up to everyone's high expectations every time they take the floor. What you've seen this week proves that going against them assures you'll be GETTING THE BEST OF IT!
