AAA

Sacramento Kings at Detroit Pistons - Under 195 (Heavy Hitter) | Unit Value: 3

Note: Ron Artist will make his return trip back to Detroit and this will be the second time since the ugly brawl back in 2004 when he charged the stands. Artest was suspended for the rest of that season - 73 games, plus the playoffs - and was sentenced to one year of probation and 60 hours of community service after pleading no contest to misdemeanor assault charges. In in first trip back to Motown, he was booed throughout the game, the Pistons were highly motivated to stuff him, and they did, winning 91-74. I suspect the same type of game will happen tonight as Detroit and the fans have not fogotten. The Kings are back at full strength now and they are playing good basketball, but what they will face tonight is more than likely going to slow them down. We are very likely to see a lot of tough physical halfcourt play from both squads. Detroit has allowed just over 85 points per contest here at home this season, and that number has continue to drop throughout this 2007/2008 campaign. When Detroit wants to play, they can and they do. They do tonight and we will see that in the way they play D. The Kings D is less than spectacular but it is better with Artist returning to the lineup and the fact is, Detroit is going to be much more concerned about beating up the visitors than scoring points. We should see pretty much the same game as we saw last year. This one is going well UNDER.

Doc's NBA

3-Unit Play - #707 Take Philadelphia +10 ½ Over Boston

The Celtics are playing their worst ball of the season currently. They have lost three of the last five and they just don’t seem to have the killer instinct right now that they have had most of the season. Philly hasn’t won many games recently but they have been scrappy and they have played in a lot of close games. Boston hasn’t been able to score a lot lately as they have averaged just 86 points in their last five games. They also play strong defense, as they have given up 87 during that same span. In what will likely be a low scoring game you have to love the double digit handicap in this situation. Philly is 6-2 ATS of a dog of nine points or higher and Boston is 5-8 ATS of a chalk of 10 or higher.

3-Unit Play - #715 Take LA Clippers +10 Over Utah

Yes, this Clippers team is a squad that doesn’t know how to win recently, but they have been very competitive lately. In their last 10 games they have covered against some very strong teams – in two of three against Phoenix, twice against the Spurs, and also against Dallas. This team is 5-2 ATS in their last seven games and has been doing just enough to cover some of the big lines they have been giving but not enough to win games. That is great for us in this situation as this line is too large. The Jazz have covered only four of their last 10 games. LA has been playing pretty good defense lately and we think they will play good enough D to keep this game within the number.

7-Unit Game of the Month – #717 Take Minnesota/Phoenix UNDER 213

*NOTE* This line has moved to 210 1/2 at most shops since we released the pick. We would endorse this pick to 210 and then if it goes under that we would knock a couple units off the wager.

Three of the last four games for the Suns have gone under the posted total. This team is consistently overcompensated for by the oddsmakers with very high totals. We absolutely loved the under in the Phoenix/Clippers game the other night at 208 (the final score saw 187 points scored total) and we love this one even more. Minnesota is one of the most inept offensive teams in the NBA. They average 93 PPG this season overall, 91 PPG on the road, and they have averaged under 90 in their last five games. They have only scored 100 or more nine times this season and when they do it is not much over the century mark. The Suns have had some high totals lately when they play squads that can play up-tempo but this Minnesota team is anything but that. The under is 9-4 in the Wolves last 13 road games. The under is also 6-2 in the last eight meetings in Phoenix. These teams met once already this season – in a game the Wolves actually won in Minnesota – and the total only reached 193, which was well under the 217 that was posted for the game.

Game: Sacramento Kings @ Detroit Pistons - Friday January 18, 2008 8:00 pm
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: Sacramento Kings +9.5 (-110) (Normal)

I understand that the Pistons have revenge coming into this game over the Kings but I still like the Kings irrelevant despite the Pistons losing to them on teh road earlier this year. Keep in mind that Mike Bibby and Ron Artest did not start yesterday I believe but still played 30 minutes in their first ballgame back and did fairly well - of course, they were rusty and this showed in a blowout loss to the Raptors on the road as this team needs to re-gel. However, what better way to come together and get your feet wet prior to playing the Pistons as now this team has plenty of scoring options with Bibby, Martin, Artest, Miller, Salmons and Beno - as each are playing 30+ minutes in the ballgame. I look for this game to be competive as the Kings bounce-back from a bad loss yesterday and the Pistons will likely win, but why not take a shot on a completely healthy Kings team after a bad loss. The Kings have more depth - much like the Wizards learned to play without Arenas and now with their stars back, this team is a more well rounded team with a more soudn bench as well. The Kings are 4-0 ATS following a straight up loss and 5-1 ATS as road underdogs of late.

Game: Golden State Warriors @ Chicago Bulls - Friday January 18, 2008 9:30 pm
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: Golden State Warriors -1.5 (-110) (Play of the Day)

What many people do not know about this game is that the Bulls absolutely demolished the Warriors last year in a ballgame - the last ballgame they played by a score of 113-83 - a 3 point blowout. Now, what many will not realize is that Baron Davis did not play in that game and in any ballgames against the Bulls last year if I am not mistaken - so he is likely to have sat on the sidelines and watch his team get spanked. Al Harrington called their dissappointing loss the other night to the Pacers as his team not playing a full 4 quarters and I expect them to play better today as they lost to their nemesis the Pacers and I expect them to bounce-back today against the Bulls. Sure, the Bulls beat up on the Heat - but who hasn't as the Heat have lost 11 straight. This is a good spot for the Warriors to roll in here as they have some solid road wins to their resume including Denver, Houston and Cleveland on the road - all basically top 15 power ranking teams and they face a Bulls team outside the top 20 power rankings. I think the Warriors bounce-back from their loss yesterday while the Bulls get caught a bit flat-footed today with the Warriors having revenge from last year's loss as well. The Warriors are 5-1 ATS following a straight up loss and the Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 ballgames following a win of 10 points or more - and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home ballgames.

Game: Philadelphia 76ers @ Boston Celtics - Friday January 18, 2008 7:30 pm
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: Philadelphia 76ers +10.5 (-109) (Normal)

Don't be afraid to lay this wager down as it makes sense for quite a bit reasons. First of all, the Celtics continue to struggle without the true point guard play of Rondo as Tony Allen is just not cutting it and Ray Allen is no where near effective as he is when he is a pure shooting guard rather than having to handle the ball more. The Sixers were up on this team at halftime when Boston was healthy at Philadelphia as they were up by 5 at the half and frankly should have lost by single digits but somehow missed the cover late as the Celtics rallied in a big way in the second half. However, the reason the Celtics were able to rally in such a big way was the fact that Rondo was able to distribute the ball. The latest Celtics scores should be cognizant of a slow offense as they have scored 100 against Portland, 83 against Washington, 78 against Washignton, 86 at New Jersey and 83 at home against Charlotte. The Sixers showed a lot of guts going into Houston and winning outright and this team with Miller, Iguodala and Dalembert does have its respective talent. I think the Sixers hang tough with revenge tonight and the lack of point guard play from Boston as they lose by single-digits. Keep in mind the Sixers lost by just 7 on the road to a healthy San Antonio team and they are 15-2-1 ATS as an underdog of 11 points or greater and the Celtics are 0-4 ATS as favorites of 11 points or greater.

NBA Opinion/Possible Best Bet
L.A. Clippers (+10) over UTAH

Utah may have a tough time being ready for this game after having played last night in Denver and the Jazz apply to a negative 21-58 ATS situation that plays against teams that lost the previous night. The Clippers are coming off an upset home win over the Clippers and they qualify in a 21-4-2 ATS road underdog momentum situation that plays on teams that are coming off a win as a hopme dog of 7 points or more. Utah does play better at home then they do on the road, so I'll just consider the Clippers an opinion at +9 or more and I'd only take the Clippers in a 2-Star Best Bet if the line goes back up to +11 points or more.

3 Star Selection
NEW ORLEANS (-9) over Charlotte
18-Jan-08 05:05 PM Pacific Time
Charlotte has been playing better basketball since the addition of C Nazr Mohammed on December 15th, which has allowed Ameka Okafor to play more power forward, which he is better suited for. The Bobcats are currently riding a two game win streak and a 6 game pointspread covering streak, but tonight they qualify in a very negative 12-57-1 ATS big road underdog letdown situation. New Orleans doesn’t normally letdown as a big favorite (7-1 ATS as a favorite of 8 points or more since last season) and they certainly won’t take this game lightly given Charlotte’s recent wins over Orlando, Denver, Boston and New Jersey and the Hornets remain an underrated team. The Hornets are 56-29-1 ATS in all games since last January 10th, including 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games. My ratings favor New Orleans by 10 ½ points in this game even after factoring in Charlotte’s improvement with Mohammed. I’ll take New Orleans in a 3-Star Best Bet at -10 points or less and for 2-Stars from -10 ½ or - 11 points.
3-Stars at -10 or less, 2-Stars at -10 1/2 or -11.

3 Star Selection
Niagara (-13) over CANISIUS
18-Jan-08 04:00 PM Pacific Time
Canisius is a horrible team with very little home court advantage, as the Golden Griffins are just 3-12-1 ATS at home in 2 seasons under coach Tom Parrotta. Canisius has lost 4 conference home games this season by an average of 16.5 points against teams that are 4 ½ points worse on average than tonight’s opponent Niagara. My ratings favor Niagara by 16 points in this game and Canisius applies to a very negative 1-31-3 ATS subset of a 12-71-5 ATS weak home court situation. There are also a couple of pretty good situations favoring Niagara in this game, but what’s the use of mentioning those when a 31-1-3 ATS situation already applies? I’ll take Niagara in a 3-Star Best Bet at -14 points or less and for 4-Stars at -12 points or less (2-Stars at -14 ½ or -15).
3-Stars at -14 or less, 4-Stars at -12 or less (2-Stars at -14 1/2 or -15).
