Jimmy The Moose comp

Game: Dallas Mavericks at Toronto Raptors Dec 12 2007 7:05PM

Prediction: Dallas Mavericks

Reason: The Mavericks come into this one having won 2 straight games and the healthier of the two team's. Dallas has won 2 of their last 3 road games SU and ATS. Dallas is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games played on Wednesday's. Toronto got Bosh and Bargnani back in the lineup but Ford went down last night with a scary injury and he may miss significant time. The Raptors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. Play on the Mavericks -.

Ben Burns -COMP

Game: Orlando Magic at Milwaukee Bucks Dec 12 2007 8:05PM
Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks

Reason: The Bucks lost badly at Orlando on Halloween Night. However, they've gone a highly profitable 16-5 ATS (18-3 SU!) the last 21 times they were a host in this series and I feel that they provide solid value this evening. While they've struggled on the road, the Bucks have played well at home, going 6-2 SU and 5-3 ATS. Yes, the Bucks have lost four games in a row. However, they covered the spread (3 point loss at Sacramento) last time out and are now a profitable 71-52-7 ATS the last 130 times they were coming off three or more consecutive losses. Consider taking the points with the home dog.

Michael Cannon-COMP

Utah loses outright last night and drops my free play record to 11-8-1 with my last 20 releases.Lay the points with Nevada tonight when they host San Diego.
There is a big size disparity in this game with San Diego's leading rebounder listed at 6-7.That won't matchup well with a Nevada froncourt that boasts 6-11 Javale McGee, 6-9 DeMarshay Johnson and 7-1 David Ellis.Nevada has struggled somewhat trying to find themselves in the early going, but tonight offers them an opportunity for a temporary fix.San Diego is nothing special offensively and probably won't be able to stop Nevada from slowly pulling away as the game goes on.Lay the points as Nevada grabs the home win and cover.

2* NEVADA

Re: Wednesday Basketball Service Picks

MATT RIVERS-COMP

For Wednesday take the points with the Kings

Of course Boston should win this game as they now win every game but no team in the NBA can be laying such a number as the Celtics are today. We all know how these large number games are, the favorite jumps out early, flexes its muscles and then puts it on cruise control with the cover coming down to scrubs on the winning team and some starters and some scrubs on the underdog. I don't see anything being different here.

Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce will probably jump out to the early double digit lead as Sacramento is just not that good but for the C's to cover a number of around two touchdowns plus is too much., Ron Artest, Brad Miller, Francisco Garcia and the Kings do have some potential and despite being far better at Arco than on the road can easily get into this monster inpost when all is said and done tonight.
The Boston players should not exactly be as fired up as possible here with the pedestrian Kings coming to town unlike the visitors who should have more motivation as they are up against the team with the best record in the NBA and they will try and make a statement.

The number is just too hefty for any team in this league, period

NBA Sides
double-dime UTA vs  PHO

Analysis: Tonight Stan's Top NBA Bettors all Bet UTAH. There was no doubt that last night's stunning loss at home to Portland was more due to Utah looking ahead to tonight's game with Phoenix. This one will be a barn burner with UTAH winning at the end. TAKE UTAH as STAN'S NBA UNDERDOG BIG BET GAME OF THE WEEK and make them a DOUBLE DIME PLAY

Vegas Experts Tip Of The Day

1-0 last night
1-1 for the week

Seattle suffered a 27-point loss last night in Chicago. Now it moves into New York to face the struggling Knicks. Do the young Sonics respond with a win and cover?

Young Sonics will play hard: effort may be lacking from the Knicks who are getting nothing of late from low post players Curry and Randolph. Sonics have covered five of their last eight, Knicks are 1-4 ATS their last five and 0-3 ATS at home. Sonics two road wins have come against Eastern Conference clubs (Atlanta and Miami). SEATTLE is 13-4 ATS as a road underdog of 6 points or less over the last 2 seasons.

Play on: Seattle

The hot Warriors have won 12 of their last 15 games, while the surging Trail Blazers go for their fifth straight win. Golden State has won and covered the spread in eight of the last nine meetings versus the Trail Blazers and has taken four of its last five at Portland. Expect a close battle, but at the end the Golden State’s high power offense will outscore the Blazers and snatch a win at the Rose Garden.

Orlando Magic (16-6) at Milwaukee Bucks (8-12)
The weary Bucks are back in Milwaukee following a bad road trip, dropping four straight and now have to face Orlando, the best road team in the NBA. The Magic is currently playing below par, dropping three of their last five games, but are 11-2 on the road. Milwaukee has been successful at home against Orlando, 17-2 at home versus Orlando, but is in a slump. They have lost eight of their last nine games. Take the Magic. Orlando has won five of the last six clashes, going 4-2 ATS. Orlando hammered Milwaukee in the last two battles, a 102-82 home victory in the last meeting on October 31 and a, 117-94 in Milwaukee on April 9.


Orlando Magic -5

Re: Wednesday Basketball Service Picks

Matt Rivers

100,000* NBA DOG ROCKS Plus Bonus Lock

Your winners here are on:

1. 100,000* Bulls

2. 50,000* Magic


1. Chicago has had a rough rough start to the season thanks a lot in part to all of the trade rumors regarding Kobe Bryant going to the Windy City but things have been a little better of late and this Chicago team still has a ton of talent and will really get things going today. Grab the points but I really do think this visitor will get the win!

Scott Skiles' squad has a ton of talent and are extremely undervalued right now because of the slow start. They have stars like Luol Deng and Ben Gordon and other very very good players including Andres Nocioni, Ben Wallace and Kirk Hinrich. These guys have a much higher upside than the mediocre at the very best Pacers.

Indiana has been playing fairly well and just won in Orlando in half a shocker. They have a very good player and former All-Star in Jermaine O'Neal and a few other guys but all in all the Pacers are just not nearly as talented as da Bulls and to not have to lay anything, even on the road, with Chicago is a flat out steal. Both teams are on the back-to-back with travel and with more depth on the Bulls this is not a bad thing for us. It may not be a true advantage but it is not bad.

Chicago is still a 50 plus win type of a club whereas the Pacers are a .500 type squad. This game is just the epitome of a value as one team in undervalued and one is overvalued. As I say often, the road is never easy and we are the visitor here but this game is still way too good to pass up, period!

2. Orlando has all of a sudden lost two in a row games for the first time this season but they still boast an absolute superstar in Dwight Howard and should get back on the horse and take care of business once again here. The road has not been a problem at all for Orlando as they have already been away from home for pretty much the entire season and just dominated everybody, except the Suns, on a grueling West coast swing which proves this teams' mettle.

I am a fan of Milwaukee and do believe they are a talented club with a star in Michael Redd along with Mo Williams, Charlie Villaneuva, Andrew Bogut, Yi and others but these guys are back home after their West coast swing which was not great and capped by the miserable fourth quarter and loss in Sacramento on Monday night. Normally the first game back home is never favorable as it seems to always take a game to get things back in stride thanks to the travel and fatigue factors.

Orlando is the clear better team and will have to play with some urgency here after the surprising losses to Indiana and Atlanta. The road has been kind so far for the Magic and I don't see anything changing here as a third straight loss is just not in the cards!

Tony Stoffo's Pick Pack
NHL Full Season Package

Member Plays
Matchup: NY Rangers at Washington
Time: 7:05 PM EDT (Wed)

Play: Over (5.0-105)

Posted on: December 11, 2007 @ 9:22:39 PM EST
NY Rangers at Washington Strong situational total trend in effect here calling for a high scoring game as the Rangers take a trip down to Washington. Play Over - Road teams where the total is 5 or less (NY Rangers) - well rested team - playing only their 2nd game in 5 days, a marginal winning team (51% to 60%) playing a bad team (25 to 40%) in the first half of the season. This trend favoring the Over for tonight has gone 27-6 over the last 10 years hitting at a very profitable 82% With the odds makers posting just a 5 on the total for tonight only makes the Over that much more of a stronger play here.

Re: Wednesday Basketball Service Picks

Matty O'Shea

double-dime bet TOR 4.5 (-110)
Analysis: This line is moving in favor of the Mavericks due to Toronto point guard T.J. Ford's terrible fall in Tuesday's win at Atlanta. Ford left the game on a stretcher after a flagrant foul by Al Horford caused him to hit his head on the floor. While Ford has played an important role for the Raptors at times, he has perhaps the best backup point guard in the NBA ready to step up in Jose Calderon. Toronto went 4-1 SU without Ford earlier this season and a perfect 5-0 ATS. That should tell you the oddsmakers have underestimated Calderon and are doing the same thing here. Calderson also played better than Ford against Dallas in the first meeting back on November 20th, totaling 14 points and 6 assists. The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings with Dallas, with 3 of the meetings decided by 2 points or less. The Mavs have not impressed me lately, and they are just 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games, so I'm taking Toronto as my Double Dime NBA Underdog Play O' the Week.

Re: Wednesday Basketball Service Picks

Jeff Alexander's Picks for December 12, 2007

NBA

3* Jazz +6.5

Utah is a team that matches up with the Suns better than anyone else in the NBA because of its size and athletic ability. These attributes have allowed the Jazz to win 2 of their last 3 games at Phoenix straight up and all 3 ATS. Utah has actually won 4 of the last 5 games in this series overall. Utah is 14-4 ATS off an upset loss as a home favorite over the last 3 seasons. The Jazz are also 22-9 ATS in road games versus explosive offensive teams - scoring 103+ points/game since 1996. Take the points here.

NCAAB

3* Santa Clara -5

Pacific does not have the same caliber of team that it has had in recent years. Santa Clara will own the Tigers tonight in this in-state battle. Pacific is just 5-16 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record over the last 2 seasons and 1-12 ATS when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%) over the last 2 seasons. Pacific is 0-6 ATS after covering 2 of their last 3 against the spread over the last 2 seasons and Santa Clara is 13-4 ATS after covering 2 of their last 3 against the spread over the last 3 seasons. Lay the points.

3* Colorado -5

This will be a tough road game against a Colorado team that has already made strides under coach Bzdelik. After back-to-back defeats, we'll take the Buffs in this solid bounce back spot at home. Colorado is 9-1 ATS after 2 straight games where they made 37% of their shots or worse since 1997 and 6-0 ATS after 3 straight games committing 14 or less turnovers over the last 3 seasons. New Orleans is just 11-31 ATS after having won 3 of their last 4 games since 1997. Take the Buffs at home

Vernon Croy
Vancouver Canucks vs. Anaheim Ducks (NHL) - 10:05 PM EST Premium Play
Pick: Money Line: 150     Vancouver Canucks     

10 Units, Take Vancouver ML +150, We are getting solid line value here with the Canucks on the road who have not lost more than 2 games in a row this season. The Canucks have played better on the road this season than at home and they are 5-2 this season after a loss by 2 or more goals. The Canucks powerplay has been on fire this season on the road converting 24.6% of the time and the Ducks powerplay has struggled at home this season converting just 13.4% of the time. The Canucks penalty kill has been very solid over their last 5 games with opponents converting just 11.1% of the time and I look for it to remain strong tonight against the Ducks poor powerplay. The Canucks already dominated the Ducks winning 4-0 in Vancouver back on Nov.27 and I like them a lot to bounce back with a strong game tonight after their loss to the Kings

Re: Wednesday Basketball Service Picks

Bryan Leonard   

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Philadelphia 76ers (NBA) - 7:05 PM EST Premium Play
Play: Total: 186/103     Under       

Minnesota at Philadelphia Under The T Wolves have had a schedule loaded with teams who like to get out and run, therefore their numbers are a bit skewed at this point of the season. But when they play a halfcourt squad like the 76ers the totals have remained below the posted numbers. Minnesota will also be playing their fourth back to back set of games this season. In the second half of the prior three they had gone under the posted total twice while landing right on the number the third time. The Timberwolves are a young team who has struggled offensively all season, failing to reach the century mark in 5 of their last 6 games. Only once all year has Minnesota exceeded 103 points in any game. Philadelphia brings a three game winning streak into tonight’s action, and defense has been the key component. The Sixers have allowed just 88, 77 and 90 points in those three victories. In fact, Philadelphia has held the opposition to 90 points or better in regulation in 6 of their last 7 games. Like Minnesota this team doesn’t have a great deal of offensive talent, they win with hustle and defense. Look for points to be hard to come by for both teams tonight as this game stays under the posted total. PLAY UNDER

Marco D'Angelo | CBB Sides Double-Dime Bet
725 Ohio 7.5

Analysis: Ohio travels to Maryland tonight to battle the Terrapins. Maryland is coming off a loss at home to Boston College. Maryland isn't that good this year and should not be laying 8 here. They are laying 7' based on name not talent. Expect a close game throughout and don't be surprised if Ohio pulls the Outright Upset. TAKE OHIO as MARCO'S COLLEGE UPSET GAME OF THE WEEK and make them a DOUBLE DIME PLAY.

Marco D'Angelo | CBB Sides Double-Dime Bet
738 Nevada -8.0

Analysis: After losing 3 in a row to UNLV,California and Pacific Nevada returned home on Saturday to win but not cover against Montana St. That was Nevada's first game in a week and they flat just going thru the motions or as I like to refer to this type of game as their Buffer Game. Now that they have a win under their belt I expect an even better performance tonight. I have Nevada winning this game by 11-14 Points. TAKE NEVADA and make them a DOUBLE DIME PLAY.
