Dave Tuley’s ATS Report

  • NCAABK: NIT tipped off with Richmond (+5) upsetting Toledo 76-66 & Western Kentucky (+1.5) upsetting Saint Mary’s 69-67; it felt weird last 2 days not having First Four games in NCAA Tournament, but all 4 coming up Thursday with 1st round starting Friday. RECAPS & MATCHUPS.
  • NBA: Underdogs went 7-3 SU & 8-2 ATS (after faves 14-0 SU & 11-3 ATS with 1 pick-’em last 2 days) w/ upsets by Nets, Pistons, Kings, Cavaliers, Spurs, Grizzlies & Mavs; dogs extend slim lead to 294-286-7 ATS with 8 PKs; Unders went 6-4, Overs lead 306-285-4 (51.8%). RECAPS & MATCHUPS.
  • ​NHL: This hockey recap is dedicated to my lifelong friend Jamie J Valle’e, who passed away at 55. I wish he was still with us so I could tease him that NHL teams from his beloved Canada won 3 games tonight, but only because they played 3 other Canadian teams! Rock in Peace, Jamie! RECAPS & MATCHUPS.
