DAY 41 NCAA Basketball Saturday (12/17)

It was a good Friday, I like those days. Overall SWO wins NCAAB way more than they lose. I'm glad to publish a few games a day for free and I hope you can cash in. However, we need to keep the lights on at SWO and we publish MORE NCAAB games and you can get them all - YES all games everyday for only $9.99 a week. Essentially you're paying for my hard work and knowledge of statistics and basketball AND it's a fair price for my work. Bring in the New Year and subscribe to our weekly or monthly plan and get our reports daily!
