1 STAR: (723) FAIRFIELD (+3) over Iona
(Risking $110 to win $100)

Fairfield has dominated this series. The Stags have beaten the Gaels in eight out of the last ten meetings and Fairfield is 7-2-1 against the spread in those games. Home court advantage doesn't mean anything in this matchup. Both of these teams have losing records, but Fairfield actually has a better road record than home record and Iona is only 5-15 against the spread in their last twenty home games. The Stags are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven road games and I look for them to get the win here. Take the points!

NBA

2 STAR: (720) GOLDEN STATE (PICK) over Chicago
(Risking $220 to win $200)

I don't think the Bulls have the firepower on offense to keep up with the Warriors. Chicago is only 1-7 against the spread in their last eight home games and a horrible 6-21 against the spread in their last 27 games against the NBA Pacific division. Kirk Hinrich is also out for this game and that will hurt them becuase they need all the scoring that they can get to keep up with Golden State. Chicago will need a hell of a defensive effort to win this game. I don't think that will happen and the key stat here is that the Bulls are 1-14 against the spread this season when they allow 100 or more points. Warriors take this one!

Portland Trail Blazers at Miami Heat

Hard to believe but the Heat return home off a 30-point home loss with same season revenge against Portland tonight. With that we note that NBA home dogs with a win percentage of < .333, off a SU home dog loss of 30 > points, are 34-13 ATS when hosting a non-conference foe. Look for Miami to put up their best effort here tonight.

Memphis Grizzlies -6.5

Seattle enters into this contest against their hosts the Memphis Grizzlies on a 8 game losing streak, and with a equally ugly 4-16 road record losing by an average 11.1 PPG. Memphis is not a team you can get excited about, losing 5 straight, but have been very competitive against some quality teams. With Grizzlies looking at this contest as a very winnable confrontation you can bet they will come out here with a very determined effort on their own home floor! Play on the Grizzlies

Play on: Boston over Philadelphia

Loved the way the Celtics hung on Wednesday night for the win and cover against visiting Portland. But, they do receive a test from Atlantic Division upstart Philadelphia who is trying real hard since Eddie Stefanski took over as President. Hopefully, the former Nets advisor can inspire the club much like former Sixers President Pat Croce. The fundamental issue this evening will be the inside defense of Philly needed to offset the skills of Boston center ?KG? who has been splendid this year. The Celtics have a positive assist to turnover ratio, while the Sixers falter in that area versus +.500 teams. That is another key. Technically speaking, we find conflicting data as the road team is 5-0-1 ATS in the series, while the underdog is 9-4 ATS. With just one day of rest the 31-6 Celtics are 8-1 ATS and, therefore, should be ready to handle the Philly charge evening.

Tony Mathews

Matchup: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Utah Jazz

Selection: Utah Jazz -10.5 (-110)

Explanation: We will side with the Utah Jazz as they face-off against the Los Angeles Clippers in Friday's NBA contest.

The Utah Jazz hold a huge advantage on the offensive end against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Utah Jazz are scoring an average of 104.9 points per game, while the Los Angeles Clippers are scoring an average of only 92.7 points per game. It's clear that the Utah Jazz hold a huge advantage on the offensive end.

The Utah Jazz have already shown us they can beat the Los Angeles Clippers. In fact, the Utah Jazz are 6-2 ATS In their last 8 meetings against the Los Angeles Clippers (when playing in Utah).

Take the Utah Jazz -10.5!

The Celtics got their groove back the last game, ending a 2-game skid with an impressive 10-point win over surging Portland. Boston is whipping opponents by 14 ppg at home! They take on a rival here in the 76ers. Philadelphia has a small team, one the bigger Celtics can take advantage of. And they always get up to play the 76ers, going 5-0 ATS the last five meetings. Philadelphia is on a 1-6 SU, 2-5 ATS run.

Play the Celtics!

A pair of teams with bad records meet, but they are headed in opposite directions. Charlotte plays well at home at 13-11 Su, 13-10-1 ATS. They have been on a hot streak the last two weeks, winning 4 of 6 games while covering the numbers in all 6. Even more impressive, they were an underdog in all 6 games! A very beatable team comes to town as Memphis is a mess, especially on the road at 4-15.

Play the Bobcats!

713 Kings @ 714 Pistons

Play: Kings +11

The Pistons lost their earlier meeting with the Kings, and the quick reaction is to expect big revenge. But that hasn't been the case for Detroit when in this scenario. The Pistons have actually been awful the last couple years in this setting, and they're a pretty amazing 0-8 vs. the number when facing a squad that topped them when they were road favorites in the prior meeting. The Kings are finally healthy and look to have enough value at the big number to justify a play.

Vegas Experts Tip of the Day

Charlotte Bobcats at New Orleans Hornets

New Orleans has been as impressive as the Bobcats lately, winning and covering six-of-seven. Its last was a plus 30-point (123-92) win over Seattle and it also beat the Bobcats in Charlotte in late December 99-85. However, CHARLOTTE is 52-31 ATS revenging a same season loss vs opponent over the last 3 seasons and NEW ORLEANS is 17-35 ATS off a home win by 10 points or more since 1996.

Play on: Charlotte

Hard to find fault with the Bobcats latest tear, as Charlotte heads to the Big Easy having won their last pair of games, and 4 of their last 6 straight up, while covering in ALL 6 of those games!The G-Man will go to the well one more time tonight, as this seems like a lot of points for the Hornets to be laying. True, New Orleans is on a tear of their own, as the Hornets have won 3 in a row, and 6 of their last 7 both straight up and against the spread, but the Hornets know they can probably go on cruise control in this one and still come away with the home outright.Most of the Hornets spread-covering damage has been achieved on the road, as New Orleans is 14-5-1 against the spread away from home, but just 9-9 against the math in their home games.G-Man is calling for a New Orleans win, but more importantly a Charlotte cover - their 7th in a row.

3* CHARLOTTE

Re: Friday Service Plays

Bobby Maxwell

We're going to play the Warriors to be able to easily handle the Bulls in this one.
Even with the Warriors coming into Chicago for their third road game in four nights, we're going to play Golden State in this one as they can put up so many points the Bulls won't be able to keep up.

Golden State has scored 104 points or more in six of its last seven games but seem to light up the scoreboard against bad teams. And right now, the Bulls are a bad team. The Warriors lost in Indiana 125-117 on Wednesday, falling as two-point underdogs, but it was a brutal fourth quarter for the Warriors as they allowed 46 points.

Chicago is just 1-7 ATS in its last eight home games and 6-21 ATS in its last 27 against Pacific Division teams. There is something wrong with this team that seemed just a step or two away from winning the Eastern Conference last season and now can't seem to beat anybody. The Bulls are just 5-12 ATS at home, not good news for the home fans.

The Warriors are 3-1 ATS in the last four meetings and we've got no worries about this team putting up the points, scoring 105.2 per game on the road.
Let's back the high-flying Warriors in this one. They can score enough to make things very hard on the Bulls.

3* GOLDEN STATE

Take the points with the Knicks tonight when they travel to take on the Wizards.

New York is actually playing decent, having won and covered three straight. They have a great shot tonight staying within this number as the Wizards really don't have the ability to bury a team without Gilbert Arenas.

The Knicks have covered the last three against the Wizards and four of the last five.
Take the points with New York as they continue their good run with a cover tonight.

Don't look now, but the Knicks ride a season-high 3 game winning streak into Washington this Friday night. Included is an underdog outright win over Washington 105-93 on Tuesday as the 2 point home dog.

Maybe the Knicks won't record another outright on the road tonight, but we do like them plus the generous impost against a Wizards team that does have a date with the Dallas Mavericks on deck.

Series numbers show the Knickerbockers with outright wins in the last pair of meetings, covers in 3 in a row, and 4 of the last 5.

This is the Knicks best stretch of the season, and we will ride them plus the points to get their 4th straight cover.
Play on New York.

Re: Friday Service Plays

JEFF BENTON

For Friday, we shift to the NBA and play the Hornets at home against Charlotte.

Big number to be laying here, especially considering that the Bobcats have been playing decent ball, going 4-2 SU and 6-0 ATS in their last six, all as an underdog. However, tonight, they run up against arguably the most improved team in the NBA in the Hornets. New Orleans is 26-12 SU and 23-14-1 ATS on the season, including three straight impressive wins over the Heat (114-88) and Sonics (123-92) at home and the Rockets (87-82) on the road. And if you go back exactly a month to Dec. 19, New Orleans is on an 11-2 SU and ATS run, with nine of the 11 wins coming by double digits. Also, the straight-up winner covered the pointspread in all 13 of those contests.

Moreover, the Hornets are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 as a favorite, 11-3 ATS in their last 14 against the Southeast Division and 5-1 ATS as a big chalk (laying 9 points or more).

As for the Bobcats, as good as they've been of late, well, it's still hard to ignore this stat: 2-12. That's their record on the road. How have they done against the spread in those 14 games Try 4-10 ATS

Finally, New Orleans already owns a blowout win over the Bobcats this season, rolling 99-85 in Charlotte as a 3'-point chalk on Dec. 28. In fact, the Hornets are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings.

Lay the price with confidence here.

Re: Friday Service Plays

MATT RIVERS

For Friday take the number with the 76ers.

Boston is obviously still the far superior team of these two but the Celtics have been far from flying high of late and I'll take my chances at this huge price back with a decent enough Philadelphia squad.

Boston shockingly lost both legs of that back-to-back with Washington after looking shoddy in the previous few games. They then did just finally beat Portland by 10 on Wednesday in a cover but the Blazers led and controlled the pace for a lot of it and if not for Ray Allen going off the Celtics, who had that ridiculous 30-3 start, would have once again fallen as the big time favorite. BTW Boston led by only four in the final 50 seconds.

Doc Rivers' squad is still either the best team in the East or the second best behind Detroit but these guys are not nearly as dominant as the first few months to the season showed and things are catching up to them a bit of late. As I like to say they are coming back down to Earth.

The 76ers have talent with Andre Iguodala, Andre Miller, Samuel Dalembert and a few others and earlier in the season at home led the C's by a ton at the break before imploding at the end in a push and a ten point defeat. These guys have the players to compete tonight and at this price I'm all about the pup!
