Utah at PORTLAND (+5')

We enter Friday's play on a 24-14 free play run our last 38 comp releases!


Tonight we have to take the points with the streaking Blazers as they entertain the slumping Jazz.

On Tuesday night, Portland went into Utah as the double-digit underdog, and walked out of Salt Lake City with a convincing 97-89 outright win. That win is part of a Blazers 5 game win and cover streak, and now they are back at home where they are 8-3 straight up, and 7-4 against the spread.

Utah is slumping right now as they have dropped their last 5, covering just once along the way. The Jazz has also dropped 3 of the last 4 series meetings straight up with the Blazers.

If Utah is able to pull off the streak stopping win tonight, they will not be able to pull off the outright by the required impost. We say take Portland as the Blazers continue to blaze-on!

Play on the Trail Blazers.

3* PORTLAND

CHARLOTTE BOBCATS +5½

The Magic took the first meeting against the Bobcats this season at home by a 105-92 final count. Orlando covered as 9.5-point home chalks and the ‘Total’ snuck under the closing number of 197.5. These teams split last seasons four game set with the Magic winning and covering both games at home. However, the Bobcats also held serve at home knocking off the Magic twice as short home underdogs. The Bobcats find themselves in the underdog role here tonight as well. Orlando has been installed a 5-point road chalk with the ‘Total’ set at 197.5 (same as Game 1). Spread players take note: The Magic are an insane 12-2 ATS (86%) on the road this year. They’re 4-1 ATS vs. losing teams on the road, and 1-0 ATS against Southeast Division opponents. All in all, they come into this match-up a combined 17-3 (85%) ATS in this scenario, and certainly deserve to be laying points in this spot. That being said, the Bobcats are a much better team when playing in their own gym evidenced by their home/away splits. They’ve won 7 of their 12 home games this season while only managing one win in eight tries on the road. They come into this spot a combined 10-8 ATS (56%) at home vs. +.500 divisional opponents this season. They’ve also been money at home ATS vs. Orlando the l/3 years going a combined 5-1 ATS. With this being a series dominated ATS by the home team, 6-0 ATS L/6, look for the Bobcats to give the Magic all they could ask for and more in this spot. Grab the points with this ugly rabid pup tonight!!!

Game: Utah at Portland (10:00 PM Eastern)
Pick: 3 units on Utah -6 (-110) (risk 3 to win 2.7)

Portland has played very well, winning five straight. But the injuries are mounting. LaMarcus Aldridge will miss this game as well as Martell Webster, who is out with the flu. Utah lost to Portland at home less than a week ago and will be motivated to get that bitter taste out of their mouth for this one. Utah after a 13-5 start, has now dropped five in a row. Webster was the difference in the game vs Utah, as he poured in 25 and connected on five three's. The rest of the team made just 23 hoops the entire game, and Utah has too much depth and firepower to lose back-to-back against a depleted Portland team.

Re: Friday Service Picks and Consensus Reports

Handicapper: Nite Owl Sports

Sport: NBA Basketball

Game: Cleveland Cavaliers @ New Jersey Nets - Friday December 14, 2007 8:00 pm
Pick: 3 units (Play of the Day) ATS: Cleveland Cavaliers -2.5 (-109)

We like Cavs in this spot, for a number of reasons. First and foremost, King (Lebron) James is back, having scored 17 on 5-9 shooting in 22 minutes of play Wed night in Cavs' easy win over Indy, his first game back since being sidelined with pesky finger injury two weeks ago in Detroit. Ironically, this was the first game since the debacle in Detroit that Cavs didn't need Lebron in order to win, as Larry Hughes was unstoppable, hitting 13 of 17 shots (including 5 of 8 treys) for 36 points in just 26 minutes of PT (playing time). But now the full strength Cavs focus their efforts on the NJ Nets, who humiliated them 100-79 in Cleveland just 10 days ago, with Lebron on the bench nursing his injury. As you may recall, the Cavs beat the Nets in LY 's playoffs on their way to the NBA finals, winning their L2 games in NJ in doing so. TY Cavs should be able to continue their success in the garden state, as they are 5-0 away vs less then .500 teams (like the nets) when Lebron is in the line-up, and the nets have been horrible at home TY, especially as a small favorite or underdog vs "B" teams (like the Cavs, at this point), against whom they are 0-6, with an average MOL of 12 points. This home ineptness by the nets is a carryover from LY, as they are not only 2-11 ATS at home TY but 3-13-1 ATS at home in their L17 home, going back to last April. In their most recent home game, the nets put on a pathetic performance, not only losing to the lowly Clippers, but shooting a miserable 32 % and an even worse 2-14 on treys, and being out-rebounded by 9. We like Cavs up to -3, but we urge all customers to get their bets in ASAP (hopefully still at this overnight line of 2.5), as we think line will rise to 3 and maybe higher due to public awareness of Lebron's return, Cavs' revenge motive and Nets' poor home record TY. When individual team totals lines are posted after noon, we will add an afternoon update if we like Cleveland over the total and/or Nets under the total. Although Cavs should win this game and cover this low number without much trouble, another way to get added value out of this pick would be to tease Cleve to +2 or better with one or two of our other NBA selections for today.

Re: Friday Service Picks and Consensus Reports

Winning Points Online. 1-0 on best bets totals in NBA

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14

***BEST BET
UNDER 200 Utah at Portland

Something works, you stick with it as long as it made sense with sound reasoning
originally. This is a reprise of Tuesday night's BEST BET Under played in Utah.

Since then, Utah played an Under in Phoenix, of all places, and Portland played an Under against the Warriors, of all opponents.

When these teams are playing below the total against the fastest-paced teams in the NBA, and tonight Utah is without its backup point guard Jason Hart and perimeter mismatch Mehmet Okur, Under is once again the way to go.

Without Hart to spell Deron Williams, he has  to play a more deliberate game to save his wheels over four quarters. Okur's three-pointer is not in the mix, nor is his lousy defense.Paul Millsap gets Okur's minutes and he is the kind of guy who will suck up all of Portland's many forthcoming misses and prevent second-chance points. Offensively? Not much. But Sloan is determined to end this five-game losing streak
with better defensive intensity and execution.

Will he? Not so sure, but the play is as called. UTAH, 93-90.

5* Utah Jazz -6

Utah is scoring 105.9 points per game overall this year and 103.8 points per game on the road this season. Utah has lost 5 games in a row while Portland has won 5 games in a row but Vegas has installed the Jazz as a road favorite in this one. Seems like you would only be crazy to take Utah tonight. Count us as one of the crazy ones as the Jazz are better than the Blazers in my opinion. Utah is 106-78 ATS after 1 away game when the line is 4 to 5 1/2. We'll play Utah for 5 units tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky

4* Milwaukee Bucks +13

Milwaukee is 27-13 SU overall vs Boston since 1996. Milwaukee is 5-2 SU and ATS overall vs Boston last 3 years including 3-1 SU and ATS at Boston last 3 seasons. Milwaukee is 11-3 ATS last 14 meetings in this series. We'll play Milwaukee for 4 units tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky

3* Golden State Warriors -6.5

Golden State is 51-30 ATS last 3 years against good offensive teams scoring 99 points per game or more. LA Lakers are allowing 102.2 points per game overall this year and 105.3 points per game on the road this season. Golden State is 7-2 ATS last 9 against NBA Pacific. LA Lakers are 79-110 ATS on the road when the line is 4 to 5 1/2. We'll play Golden State for 3 units tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky

3* Dallas Mavericks -8

Dallas is 34-15 ATS vs division opponents last 3 years. Dallas is 179-130 ATS since 1996 after playing a non conference game. Dallas is scoring 102.2 points per game overall this year and 107.2 points per game at home this year. Dallas is 22-5 SU and 18-8 ATS overall vs New Orleans since 1996 including 12-1 SU and 9-4 ATS at home vs New Orleans since 1996. We'll play Dallas for 3 units tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky

Re: Friday Service Picks and Consensus Reports

Marco D'Angelo | NBA Sides Triple-Dime Bet
UTA -5.5  vs  POR

Analysis: OK tonight we have a quick Revenge situation in the NBA as UTAH travels Portland seeking revenge for losing at home Tuesday Night to Portland. When Utah played Portland on Tuesday it was a bad scheduling spot as Utah just returned home from Playing San Antonio and Dallas and was playing Phoenix at Phoenix the very next night. This was a classic sandwich situation as Utah played Portland sandwiched in between the 3 Best teams in the NBA. They weren't mentally prepared to play Portland. Tonight however Portland gets all of Utah's attention and this will result in an easy UTAH WIN. I expect UTAH to win this game by 10-13 Points. TAKE UTAH as MARCO'S 7* NBA HIGH ROLLER BLOWOUT and make them a TRIPLE DIME PLAY.

Sport: NBA Basketball
Game: Sacramento Kings @ Philadelphia 76ers - Friday December 14, 2007 7:00 pm
Detail: IC'S FRIDAY NIGHT NBA PLAY OF THE DAY!
Pick: 3 units (Play of the Day) TOTAL: Over 190 (-109)

The bottom line is that the Kings are coming off a terrible shooting performance in the 3rd and 4th quarters against the Celtics, a team that they scored 45 points in the first half against which shows a lot about the offensive prowess of this team despite the fact that they are without Bibby or Martin.  This team put up 45 points in the first half against a Celtic team at Boston which many teams find it very difficult to do.  Yet, this team was horrible in the second half and they will have that in my mind when they play against the Sixers today who are averaging more than a 100 points a ballgame in their last 5 games.  The Sixers are in the midst of their longest winning streak of the season and that is in part to better shooting and that will likely continue today. The over is 7-1 when the Kings are small underdogs of less than 5 points and the last 4 games have gone over for the Sixers.

Sport: College Basketball
Game: Drake @ Iowa Hawkeyes - Friday December 14, 2007 8:05 pm
Pick: 3 units (Normal) ATS: Drake -2 (-110)

More Picks to come. Total of: Doing Research now. Will Update with Number of Picks soon. My research talks about this pick in good detail but the bottom line is I think there is great value in Drake today. This team is 8-1 for a reason and their sole loss comes to St. Mary's in a hard fought ballgame they lost on the road. They play a Iowa State team that is about 125 spots below St. Mary's in the power rankings as this Iowa team simply does not have a great offensive balance whatsoever. I have Drake 80 points higher than Wake who defeated Iowa on the road 56-47. I think Drake learned a lot from St. Mary's and will be very competitive today and I can see them winning this game by double-digits. Once again, Iowa is likely to keep this game close in the early goings, but I think Drake will simply be too strong as they have a far balanced offense as they have several threats as compared to Iowa who has to claw and scratch for every bucket they get.

Sport: NBA Basketball
Game: Milwaukee Bucks @ Boston Celtics - Friday December 14, 2007 7:30 pm
Pick: 3 units (Normal)   TOTAL: Under 189.5 (-110)   

The Celtics are still the #1 defense in the league holding opponents to around 88 points a game and this is no accident. Combine that with the fact that Bucks will look to play a bit better defense on the road today as they realize that they must if they have any chance of competing with this team because they likely cannot offensively. More importantly though, the unders in Boston have been a great wager as the under is 7-1-1 in Celtic home games, 6-1 when the Celtics are favored by 10 or more and the under is 4-1 when the Bucks are underdogs and do not perform as well when they are expected to lose the ballgame in relation to their point total. The celtics typically play the under when they are heavy favorites at home and today is no exception.

FRIDAY

5-DIME
Pacers
Timberwolves
Cavaliers

PACERS – T.J. Ford is expected to miss another game tonight, and that can't be good in facing against the Pacers, who will be in search of revenge from a Nov. 16 loss in the teams' first clash of the season. Ford played a pivotal role in that game, and without him, the Raptors will suffer terribly. On the other end of the court, Jamal Tinsley is trying desperately to keep the focus on him and the basketball court – not last Sunday's shooting in downtown Indianapolis. He looked strong Wednesday night in pouring in 18 points and dishing out eight assists in a 117-102 win over Chicago. Indiana has won eight of its last 10 home games against Toronto, while it's covered four of its last five overall. Also, in this series, the home team is 4-0 ATS the last four meetings, while the favorite has covered four of five.

TIMBERWOLVES - Seattle, just 3-9 on the road, will play its fourth road game in six nights and should be a tad lethargic for this game. I know the Sonics seem to be settling into a groove offensively, and have finally found some support for Kevin Durant, but this is a game they'll obviously come in overconfident for, and will struggle down the stretch. The Wolves are in triple revenge, and by isolating Durant tonight, double-teaming him and keeping him from taking high-percentage shots, we're going to see Seattle's cast become frustrated throughout the night. Lay the low chalk in this one, as the home team is the right play.

CAVALIERS - The Nets won the first matchup, 100-79, Dec. 4 in Cleveland, but let's not forget it was one of those games the Cavs were without LeBron James. And make no mistake, he's back and ready to negate the losing streak his team endured. Despite the loss 10 days ago, the Cavaliers have beaten New Jersey in four of the past six, while the Nets have lost four straight and are now 4-6 in their past 10. The Nets are also riding dismal runs of 4-9 SU and 2-11 ATS at home, so Cleveland's confidence should be high for this one. This is the first of back-to-back games for the Cavs, who play Philadelphia in Cleveland on Saturday, and this season the Cavaliers are 4-2 on the first night of back-to-backs this season – including a perfect 2-0 on the road.
