Craziest Betting Wins:
Clemson was a 4-point favorite over Miami (FL), and the Tigers held a 10-point lead with 30 seconds left. A couple Miami threes and Clemson turnovers saw the Hurricanes have a chance to cut it to a one-possession game at the free-throw line with 12 seconds left. Miami, however, missed both attempts to leave it at a four-point deficit. One Clemson free throw and one missed Miami three-pointer later, and Tigers bettors prevailed thanks to a five-point win.
The first-half total for Georgia and Ole Miss was at 68, and the Bulldogs led the 38-30 as the final seconds were playing out before the break. After the Rebels missed a jumper, Georgia’s Sahvir Wheeler collected the rebound, dribbled to halfcourt and drilled a miraculous shot to give OVER bettors a nice payday.
It wasn’t the greatest start for those who took St. John’s -3.5 vs. Georgetown. The Red Storm trailed by as many as 15 points in the second half and were down 62-52 after a Terrell Allen layup for the Hoyas with 6:30 left. Following that bucket, though, Georgetown couldn’t weather the Storm. St. John’s scored the game’s final 25 points, winning by a final score of 75-62.
