It seems as if no lead is safe so far in March. I was fortunately on the right side of the latest March meltdown when Notre Dame came back from 21 down for us last night. Whether good or bad, you can’t dwell in this gig. Moving on.

The analysis below contains my nine favorite spots on Thursday’s card that I like from a situational handicapping angle (see bottom of the story for a situational glossary of a few of my favorite angles).


Today, I will specifically touch on a number of first-half angles, go back to the well with a few teams from yesterday, and of course highlight the best revenge spots of the day. The eight listed games tip between noon and 11:30 p.m. ET.

(Note: I added one late-night play to the bottom of this file at 7:30 p.m. ET)

YTD: 44-29
