NCAA Basketball (Jan. 1 - Jan 10)

While football spreads come out earlier, the hard part about basketball spread is that they don't run in our paper until the day of the game. I try very hard to post the spread from the paper on the day of the game. When in doubt, local people can check the Lafayette Journal and Courier for a spread on game day or try if there isn't one in the paper.

When I post basketball, I will post a weeks worth of games on either Saturday or Sunday. Some people will pick all of the games regardless of the spread right away, others wait until closer to tip-off so that they can take the spread into account in their predictions.

The games that I choose to post are the ones that match 2 ranked teams in the previous weeks ESPN rankings. Sometimes the rankings change after I post the games. I also reserve the right to post other games if they seem interesting enough to me.

Scoring is the same as football. Deadline is tip-off of each game.
