If this month has you down in the dumps, the first round of the NCAA tournament begins this Thursday. You can make your own bracket and maybe even win some cash. The beauty of the tournament is that crazy things happen, and anyone—even people who know absolutely nothing about basketball—can get a perfect bracket. Some advice: don’t be afraid of a Cinderella* story. Pick a low-seeded team to get past the first, maybe even the…

Weep No More My Lady: It’s Basketball in the Bluegrass  Hey Y’all! Welcome back to Watercooler sports. For the sports averse, brace yourself—March Madness is coming. College basketball is about to take over every conversation, every bar, and everywhere you look. Most basketball fans consider March Madness to begin with the major conference tournaments: SEC, ACC, the Big 12, etc. Take note, that some conference tournaments have finished—this is relevant as the Ohio Valley Conference…

Watercooler Sports is designed for those of you who only want to know *just* enough to understand what happened When you start seriously seeing someone, it is imperative that you learn about what matters most to them. Unfortunately for me, that meant sports. I had never cared that much about sports and to be frank, I thought professional players made too much money for playing what looked to me like a dumb game.

TL;DR: Hurricanes -1.5, UNDER 5.5 goals Kent State -7 Kentucky -16.5 Are you a hockey fan? Do you like watching hockey games? Can you name 5 current professional hockey players?

Introducing the Kicked Out Sportsbook, UNC beating Duke, and We Were Wrong about Space Jam 2 In the 8th installment of The Blow-By, we sit down will local gambling degenerate Jordan Jones to discuss his new weekly picks, analyze why Zion’s shoe exploding matters a little too much, why John Calipari is the obvious choice for coach of the year, more Lakers talk (sorry), and whether or not the Nuggets are an actual problem. Thanks…

As a fan of the Washington Wizards, the peak moment for me as a fan has been the 2017 playoff run that ended with a loss to Boston. We may not have made the conference finals, but for once the Wizards overachieved. The Celtics were the number one seed in the east and they were supposed to handle the Wizards with ease on their way to face LeBron in the Eastern Conference Finals. Due to…

TL;DR: I’m taking EKU -3.5 and EKU/TTU OVER 151.5, along with the Houston Rockets -3.0. Read on to see why. Sports betting combines two of my favorite things in the world: making money from my recliner and watching sports. But there’s a third part of sports betting that can make the hobby a little more tedious: researching statistics in order to make informed decisions. That’s why I’m here to do it for you. It’s something…
