Ladies and 6mg Zynners, welcome to week 2 of #PowerTan, sponsored by Upper Decky Lacrosse. If you like lacrosse, gambling, and making money, keep reading.

After a sorry performance from both Rutgers and Hofstra this past week, we're looking to bounce back heavy and hard with #PowerTanWeek2. If I had the energy I would take this time to shit all over Hofstra for being down 12-8 in the 3rd to a team who hasn't won a game since March 22nd, 2022 (23 games) but I already got that out of my system. Planning to fade Hofstra the rest of the year #PovertyProgram. We'll also be dropping a Friday pick today on Instagram that will fall under week 1. Disclaimer: it's a #PowerTanWhalePlay🐳 so if you're a scarcity gambler don't hit it. #RideOrLose

This week's #PowerTanShortlist is as follows:

Le Moyne -2.5 @ Wagner

Virginia -6.5 @ Richmond

Duke -8 vs. St. Joe's

Navy -1.5 @ Towson

Colgate -3 @ Albany

Yale -5.5 vs. Villanova

Denver -2 @ Utah

This week's slate has a shit ton of games, but a lot of these squads are playing their first games of the season so these picks are a bit harder than last week. Le Moyne is playing their first ever D1 game against a woeful Wagner group, and I trust them to put a beating on Wagner. Virginia kicked the shit out of Michigan, beating them by 8, and with a smaller spread against Richmond at -6.5 I'm confident in them taking care of business. St. Joe's is a solid group, but Duke's lowest goal total of the year is 20 (with no signs of slowing down) and I don't think St. Joe's will have what it takes to cover. Towson is coming off a huge 10-point win against The Mount in their home opener (#TheMountIsntReal #NiceHitTan), but Navy seems more than capable of covering -1.5 here. They score a lot of goals and have solid middle-of-the-field personnel along with some talented freshmen already making an impact. Colgate is travelling to Albany, who open their season with this game. Colgate has some electric games under their belt already and I think they keep rolling and step on Albany by 5-6 here. Yale also opens their season at home this weekend against a Nova group who came out of the gate stumbling already. Yale might win this game by 10. We haven't seen them yet, but they're gonna be buzzing. Lastly, Denver. Denver did not beat Air Force convincingly after their sick comeback on Hopkins in week 0. A line this low for a team ranked as high as Denver can't be overlooked, but they're @Utah. Denver moneyline might be the way to go here. Going to parlay these all together for a #PlanktonUnitParlay $5 play, one of these will hit at some point this year and the fellas are gonna go nuts #TheMathersWay.

#PowerPlay of Week 2:

Vermont -4.5 @ Manhattan. -115

Wager: $50 to pay: $93.47

#TanPlay of Week 2:

Yale -5.5 vs. Villanova. -115

Wager: $50 to pay: $93.47

(Note: Our individual plays are plays that we actually make, but do not contribute to the overall #PowerTan record.)

Now that we're done with all of that, it's time for the big boy.

Le Moyne -2.5, Navy -1.5. +224

Wager: $50 to pay: $162.17

Le Moyne is gonna be a wild card, but this is gonna be an electric play. Wagner will compete with UMass Lowell and St. John's for the title of "Worst Team in D1" this year, and Le Moyne is looking to make a splash in their first D1 game in program history and have a great opportunity in front of them. Not much more to say about Navy other than #GodBlessOurTroops.
