MLAX NCAA Semifinal vs Yale (Gillette Stadium)

Recommended Posts

This is of little (or no) interest to anyone, but I flew from Newark to Tampa on JetBlue this past Saturday and watched the entire UA-Denver game on ESPNU.

Just reading the Bag policy @ Gillette. Standard NFL package, pretty much nothing allowed in:  no seat cushions, no seat pads, no umbrellas, no anything {see football fiasco a couple years back.}

Anyhow, anyone know if seats in UA section (bought from UA ticket site) are chairback or bleacher?

Well if my research is correct, this is the 3rd UA sports team to make a final 4.  Women's Field Hockey in 2014 losing to eventual champ UCONN and the 1977 football team losing to eventual champ Widener University in a Div 3 semi.  Let's go boys,  get to a final!

Get the final, get the championship.  First up, Yale.  Time to show who’s boss.

In the all-important betting line, Sportsbook shows Albany a 1.5-point favorite with an over/under of 23.5.

I don't know how the money line works, but the numbers are:

Team...Money...Spread.......Total

Albany -140....-1.5 (+150)...O 23.5 (-120)

Yale....Even....+1.5 (-200)...U 23.5 (-120)

Duke....-130...-1.5 (+130)...O 23.5  (-105) 

MD.......-110...+1.5 (-175)...U 23,5 (-135)

MD.......-110...+1.5 (-175)...U 23,5 (-135)

 

They aren't a 1.5 goal favorite.

How it reads is if you want to bet UA to win the game straight up you need to put up $140 to win $100.  If you want to bet Yale to win the game straight up you only need to put up $100 to win $100.

If you like UA to win by more than one goal then you can take the -1.5 number, and you put up $100 to win $150 for the extra risk.  (In my opinion a much smarter bet than the money line, because the payback increases significantly for only one more goal in the margin of victory.)

If you like Yale to win, or to lose by less  than one goal then you can take the +1.5 number, and you put up $200 to win $100.  Here for the sake of one goal you are better off taking Yale with the money line, as the payback there is much better to protect yourself only against a one-goal UA win.

Just be very wary of the one-goal margin of victory, which these spreads suggest is a very distinct probability.

For the over/under, pick either side and put up $120 to win $100, as the amounts are the same.

These are the only options to bet on the game, as there are only 2 "lines" for the game, with three options each.

The smart money is on UA -1.5.  No, wait, the smart money is on not betting, and realizing that college athletics is for entertainment purposes only...which is why the NCAA is a not-for-profit.

Definitely pumped. I think the team is ready. I really believe TD is going to flip the table on Mackie.

i would expect a similar gameplan from us and Yale attacking the midfield. SSDM’s have to play tighter and JD closer to his season save percentage.
