Former linesmaker Lenny Del Genio is a REMARKABLE 14-4 the last 4 years in the NIT, including 1-0 this yr as Drexel DESTROYED UCF 81-56 last Wednesday! He feels one of tonight's lines is WAY OFF!

Game: Minnesota at Miami (FL) Mar 19 2012 9:00PM
Prediction: Miami (FL)
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: Play on Miami (FL) at 9:00 ET. Home court advantage matters in the NIT and tonight we find a Miami (FL) team that has gone 14-3 in Coral Gables this season, laying a short number, and hosting a Minnesota team with a losing road record. Even better is that the Gophers are off a SU dog win at LaSalle last Wednesday, which is not indicative of the team's overall road play this season. After playing ZERO "true" road games against non-conference foes, Minny lost six of nine on the Big 10 road. Miami looked good in its NIT opener, beating Valpo 66-50 as ten-point chalk, holding the Crusaders to 35% shooting for the game. They have now cashed six straight home games in the month of March. The Canes finished the season pretty well before bowing out in the ACC Tourney to Florida State. Look for them to easily cover this low pointspread. Miami (FL) is our NIT Oddsmaker Mismatch.
