On the Monday February 18 edition of BangTheBook Radio, host Adam Burke talked with professional handicapper Kyle Hunter of HunterSportsPicks.com for this week’s first of two Handicapping the Hardwood segments. The guys discussed a few of today’s Monday Mailbag question, the Southland Conference, fade/follow and regression teams, and some games for this week, including North Carolina vs. Duke.
Questions about college basketball key numbers and pace wars started off today’s segment. Then the guys discussed the Southland Conference and looked at a league where being a good defensive team is enough to get by. They talked about regression candidates and follow and fade teams across four conferences and then hit four games for this week, including Maryland vs. Iowa and UNC vs. Duke.
