You took Sned v. the field in the US Open. You bet on that horse with the nautical name in your preakness trifecta. You talked yourself into getting down HEAVILY on Cameroon because of two words: Stevie Thunder. You know more about Rayeev Ram than you do about your significant other. Why? Because he's Bobby Reynolds doubles partner and lets just say that whole parlaying Cameroon with the over didn't go exactly as planned making you VERY interested in 1st round US Open Doubles action.

But tonight, that all changes. Tonight, it's morning in commodore nation. Tonight, Coach Caldwell, guide and teacher of our collective hearts, starts his long March to the SEC Championship. 

Commies are a 3 point underdog. O/U 41.5. Moneyline payout at 140. 

Moneyline is a no brainer. (No way Vandy loses, but by less than three.) So, the question is do you parlay the moneyline with an O/U. I say take the under if you're going to do anything (this is contrary to my betting maxim of never betting the under b/c it is zero percent fun to root against scoring in a game. But if you gotta have some parlay action, this is the best bet. Vandy isn't winning in a shoot out.)

And enjoy the deliciousness of Caldwell's post game tweets.
