Saturday Service Plays

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Alex Smart

Oklahoma -7.0

The Oklahoma Sooners (12-5) are a much improved team and despite of some recent set backs to Kansas and Kansas State, are on their way to being one of the top programs in the Big 10 again. Bobby Knights Texas Tech(10-6), their opponents here today are off an emotional win against Texas A&M last time out, for their 3rd straight win in that series, and are now in a let down situation, against an extremely hungry Sooners team that will be primed to get back in the win column. Final notes & Key Trends: Texas Tech has lost 4 of their 5 road games this season.The Sooners have won 51 of the last 59 games and 106 of the last 119 at home in the Loyd Noble Center. Play on Oklahoma yes, even with freshman star Griffin out of the lineup with injury

Re: Saturday Service Plays

TOTALS 4 U

Kansas @ Missouri on Saturday, January 19th

Kansas (17-0, 2-0 Big 12) routed the short-handed Sooners, who lost freshman scoring leader Blake Griffin early in the game to injury, 85-55 at Allen Fieldhouse in a game in which the Jayhawks turned the ball over just 7 times and maintained their #3 position in the Associated Press poll behind only North Carolina and Memphis. Coach Bill Self (122-29 in 5th season at Lawrence) has captured at total of 7 league titles in 3 different conferences in his 15 head coaching seasons, taking Tulsa (74 -24), Illinois (78-24), and Kansas each to the Elite 8 of the NCAA Tournament with run and gun offensive attacks aided by superior perimeter defenses pilfering the rock and leading the break. This season, Self has 5 dynamite guards to run the show with 6'6" junior Brandon Rush (11.7p, 4.5r, 2.0a, 27/64 from 3-point), 6'1" junior Mario Chalmers (12.2p, 2.8r, 4.9a, 30/64 from 3-point), and 6'1" senior Russell Robinson (6.9p, 2.4r, 4.6a) in the starting roles while 5'11" sophomore Sherron Collins (9.5p, 2.3r, 2.8a) and 6'4" Roderick Stewart (4.5p, 2.6r, 2.2a) bring the energy off the bench. Rush has been criticized much of his career for a lack of aggressiveness but we like this kid. When the popular opinion was that this late signee would put in one year and then bolt for the NBA Draft, Rush has stayed in school, finished his rehab from off-season ACL surgery early, and has cranked up his game in Big 12 play with 35 total points including 9 makes from behind the arc against Nebraska and Oklahoma. 87 of the last 90 Jayhawk opponents have shot under 50% from the field with Chalmers (2.9 steals per game) and Robinson (2.5 steals per game) ranking 1-2 in conference thefts for a crew that ranks first nationally with 11.0 steals per game while the big guys inside swat away shots at a nationally best rate of 6.6 per game. In the paint 6'9" 230 sophomore F Darrell Arthur (13.4p, 5.8r, 30 blocks) and 6'8" 250 senior C Darnell Jackson (12.3p, 7.0r, 55/76 from field last 10 games) round out the starting lineup, although Coach Self really uses a 4-man rotation on the blocks, substituting regularly with former starter 6'11" 245 senior C Sasha Kaun (7.9p, 4.0r, 25 blocks) and 6'11" 245 freshman C Cole Aldrich (3.3p, 3.4r, 19 blocks) - each of whom are extraordinary defensive stoppers. 83.3 points of offense per game while allowing just 58.6 points per game defensively is why the Crimson and Blue have won 25 consecutive regular season games but it's the added component of depth that makes Kansas our selection for eventual 2006-2007 National Champion. 7 different Jayhawks have led the team in scoring, 6 have led the team in rebounding, and 8 have led the team in steals through Kansas's first 17 games.

Missouri (11-5, 1-0 Big 12) upset the #12 Texas Longhorns by the score of 97-84 at Missouri Arena to open their conference season, exploding for 59 points on 70.6% shooting from the field in the second half, to record their 13th consecutive home win. The arrival of Nolan Richardson disciple (22years at player and assistant coach) Coach Mike Anderson (29-17 in 2nd season in Columbia) has revitalized the Old Gold and Black with an attack alternatively termed "The Run and Execute", "40 minutes of Hell", and simply "The Show". In his 4 seasons as head coach of Alabama-Birmingham (89-41), Coach Anderson led the Blazers to a NIT and three NCAA births with aggressive recruiting from the junior college ranks and he hasn't lost a trick in his move to the big leagues. 6'8" 225 junior F DeMarre "Junk Yard Dog" or "J Y De" Carroll (14.6p, 6.8r, 1.4s, 91/155 from the field) transferred in from Vanderbilt while 6'3" sophomore G J. T. Tiller (6.4p), 6'7" 227 senior F Darryl Butterfield (4.6p, 2,4r), and 2006-2007 Big 12 Newcomer of the Year 6'1" senior Stefhon Hannah (14.0p, 2.6r, 5.5a, 2.0s, 37/89 from 3-point) was named 2006-2007 Big 12 Newcomer of the Year were all brought in from junior colleges. Starting in the paint along with Carroll is 6'9" 240 junior Leo Lyons (12.1p, 4.7r, 77/121 from the field) but it's the play of Missouri's guards that have the "Tiger Nation" believing they have a shot at conference honors this year. 6'2" senior Jason Horton (3.7p,1.7r, 3.3a), 6'7" junior Matt Lawrence (9.6p, 2.7r, 38/106 from 3-point), 6'2" sophomore Keon Lawrence (10.4p, 4.1r, 2.8a, 1.4s), plus Hannah and Tiller will work you over and leave the best offenses looking out of sync. 19.0 assists (#7 nation), 19.9 forced turnovers (#9 nation), and 10.3 steals (#10 nation) per game not only ranks the Tigers first in the country in turnover margin at + 6.3 per contest but has led to 24.4 points per game off turnovers in 2007-2008 while holding opposing shooters to just 24.4% from behind the arc. With 83.0 points of offense per trip, Missouri has the firepower to hang with any squad in college basketball and having played Maryland (win), Michigan State (loss by 3), Purdue (win), California (loss), Arkansas (loss by 3), Illinois (loss by1), and Mississippi State (loss) in their non-conference schedule, Coach Anderson's team has been well prepared for a rugged Big 12 Conference season. The Kansas game is usually the only home sell-out of Missouri's season and the "Border War" is at a fever pitch this year after the Tigers knocked the Jayhawks out of the National Championship picture in football.

In our view, the Jayhawks are the best team in the country but this is an extremely dangerous situation. The Tigers match up with Kansas probably better than any squad in the nation and have played a tougher schedule to this point. We'll be keeping our eyes on Wednesday night's Missouri match up with Iowa State but for now we'll pick the upset for Saturday night. Take Missouri plus the points at home

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Dave Malinsky comp 4* play

GAME: Notre Dame @ Georgetown

PICK: Notre Dame

Offered at: 9

Last Saturday afternoon we did something that we do often – backed Mike Brey as a road underdog. And later that day we had to do something that has been rather rare – put the ticket on the losing side of the ledger. But it was not so much a case of the Fighting Irish playing poorly as a good Marquette team being on top of their game, including an out of character performance from 3-point range (naturally the Golden Eagles balanced that out with an 0-12 at Louisville on Thursday). And the bottom line is that even with that defeat Brey is on a 35-11 ATS run as an underdog away from South Bend, and we get excellent value here in a game that can go right to the wire.

The Fighting Irish are an ideal example of our “Tough Out” phrase – they do so many things right that it is difficult to get a margin against them. In the past Brey has largely made it happen with shooters and ball-handlers, and while he has them in stock once again (they shoot 41.6 percent from 3-point range, 72.6 from the free throw line and are 5th in the nation in assists), the difference this time is a deep and physical front court. They are holding the opposition to 39.5 percent from the field, and are 5th in the nation in rebound differential. When talent and tactics come together it means a live chance to win just about any game outright, and there will not be any fear of the Hoyas at all – under Brey the Irish are 3-2 SU against them on this court, with one of the defeats coming by a single point, and they remember well the bitter two-point loss in Madison Square Garden last March in the Big East tourney.

Georgetown is not an easy team for the marketplace to price. The Hoyas have the potential to be in the Final Four because of their defense, and an offense that creates matchup problems, but that does not necessarily translate to getting many blowout wins. In their last two Big East games they trailed Connecticut most of the second half before finally escaping on that Roy Hibbert 3-pointer at the buzzer, and they were soundly beaten at Pittsburgh on Monday night. In a game that will not feature much of a pace they will be hard-pressed to ever amass any kind of working margin, and that ugly 63 percent free throw shooting makes it even more difficult to break this one open.

Black Magic Sports

NCAA Basketball:

5 Unit Black Magic Mountain West Rivalry GOTY Play on Utah -2.5

The Utah Utes will dominate this Mountain West Conference Rivalry and defend their home court with shining colors tonight. Utah is 9-1 in their last 10 home meetings with the BYU Cougars. The Utes suffered a terrible season in losses to BYU in both meetings last season. They are a much improved team this year and will bounce back to get revenge on their conference rivals Saturday. BYU lost their last game by 29 points at UNLV. Utah blew a huge halftime lead to San Diego State to lose by 8 points in overtime their last game out. They will come in more pissed off knowing they gave that one away. BYU has to be lacking in confidence after getting slaughtered by 29 points as well. They probably don't even believe they can win this game themselves. Cash in with Utah as the favorite.

4 Unit NBA Beatdown of the Night on L.A. Clippers +2

The Clippers are finally starting to get healthy and it's paying off, at least in home games anyway. The Clippers just beat the Western Conference leading Phoenix Suns 97-90 in their last home game. Now they take on an average Eastern Conference team in the New Jersey Nets Saturday that don't stand a chance on this Western Conference road trip. The home team is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings between the Clippers and Nets. New Jersey is 5-16 ATS after playing a home game this season. The Nets have lost 3 straight games including an embarrassing home loss to the New York Knicks. Cash in with the Clippers as the underdog.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Drew Gordon

1. 300,000* Mississippi
2. 50,000* Utah
3. 50,000* New Mexico
4. 50,000* Bucks

1. Mississippi- After watching the Rebels annihilate the Tigers on this very same court 82-59 last season, you might be inclined to think Ole Miss would be in for some payback today, but that's simply not the case and here's why:

First, this year's version of the Rebels is even better than last years. Ranked 15th in the country and sitting at 15-1, Ole Miss has benefited greatly from their freshman phenom G Chris Warren. He's joined in the backcourt, by 6'5 guard Eniel Polynice, who can not only score (12 ppg, 4 assists/game), but can also play defense (30 steals).

But the real mismatch is in the frontcourt, where 6'8 290 lbs Dwayne Curtis can and will control the paint. He's coming off a 20-point 12 rebound effort against Florida, and with Tigers F Korvotney Barber out with a broken hand, no one can stop him. F Kenny Williams (8 ppg 8 boards/game) occupies the other block, giving Ole Miss another strong option against a short-haned Auburn frontcourt in this one.

With such a tremendous edge in the paint, you can expect the Rebels high-powered offense to have their way with the Tigers defense today. Both teams are allowing 70 ppg over their last 5 games, but the BIG difference is the Rebels are allowing opponents to shoot just 41%, while the Tigers are allowing 51%... Needless to say, that's a huge difference.

Bottom line, if Auburn had its full compliment of weapons, maybe, just maybe, we'd side with the Tigers here. But you don't just lose your best frontline player and then turn around and compete with a team like Ole Miss, who's frontcourt is big, strong, and capable of controlling the game. Although it won't be as bad as last season, Ole Miss gets the solid road win and cover here.

Take Mississippi comfortably over Auburn as your top-rated play of the day.

2. Utah- While there's no doubt BYU is excellent at home (9-0), they've proven vulnerable on the road (2-3), and if you don't believe me, check out this afternoon's game at rival Utah.

The Utes are no joke at home (7-1), especially defensively, where they lockdown opponents to the tune of 54 ppg on 40% shooting! For all the success BYU has had on offense on friendly rims, its a completely different story in hostile territory, where they average just 65 ppg on 41% shooting. Utah's empahsis on defense is bad news for this Cougars team, which dropped in just 41 points on 33% shooting in their last road game at UNLV (one of the ugliest offensive efforts I've seen in a while).

Utah is one of the few teams in conference that can say they've got a solid answer for Cougars C Trent Plaisted. Their own bigman, Luke Nevill, is not only bigger (3 inches and 30 lbs.), but a better shot blocker (25 to 14 swats), and playing at home. Make no mistake, Plaisted disappeared in BYU's last road game at UNLV, scoring just 5 points and grabbing 6 rebounds in 23 minutes.

Finally, we know damn well these two teams don't like eachother, and the fact BYU won both match ups last year only fuels the Utes fire for revenge. In fact, the last time they played at the Hunstman Center, the Cougars handed the Utes a tough 76-66 loss... Payback's a bitch, and BYU finds that out the hard way in this one!

Take Utah at home over BYU in this MWC rivalry showdown.

3. New Mexico- Tough match up for Air Force, which has a lot of trouble on the road, going just 3-9-1 ATS over their last 13 away. They did get the win and cover at Wyoming in their last one, but a win over a flawed Cowboys team is hardly enough to change my mind about the Falcons road play.

More indicative of the Falcons true demeanor in hostile territory is their previous three road games - all losses - including a very ugly 58-36 loss at Utah two weeks ago. New Mexico's offense is well above average, scoring 76 ppg on an excellent 49% shooting at home... So how in the hell do you expect this road-weary Falcons squad to keep pace? Air Force averages only 54 ppg on 41% shooting away this season, a big part of the reason they've got only one true road win this year (at sorry-ass Wyoming).

If you've followed New Mexico basketball then you know how good of a bet they've been at home, going 8-2 ATS there this season! Not to mention they're also 12-4-1 ATS over their last 17 games overall. Coming off their first home loss of the season, a disappointing effort against San Diego State, look for the Lobos to come out fired up in this one. Don't get discouraged by the fact they've lost two straight, returning home against offensively inept Air Force is the perfect situation for this New Mexico team.

Bottom line, look for the Lobos to blow Air Force right out of their gym in this one. Superior offense, coupled with the Falcons inability to score on the road, equals a lopsided home win and cover for the Lobos in this one!

Take New Mexico BIG over Air Force in this MWC match up.

4. Bucks- I gave you the Warriors over the Bulls yesterday as my Free Play release, but tonight, I've elevated the Bucks to my paid play simply because I believe Golden State will run out of gas in this one.

Playing their 4th road game in 5 nights, even a team used to running-and-gunning all game long cannot hold back fatigue. In fact, one could argue that the Warriors cover up their defensive deficiencies with a superior offense... So what happens when the offense is tired? You get what will happen tonight, a tired Warriors team trudging up and down the floor against a rested Milwaukee team that's a solid 11-5 (8-8 ATS) at home this season.

Match ups may also be an issue, as Bogut has shown improvement, coming off a 21 point 10 rebound effort in the Bucks 87-80 win over the Hawks Wednesday. In fact, over his last 3 games he's averaging 23 ppg and 10.5 rebounds per game! While normally you'd take the more balaned Baron Davis over Michael Redd, I have serious concerns about Davis' energy in this one. He's coming off an exhausting 45 minute 40 point night in Chicago yesterday... I don't care who you are, he going to be noticaeably slower in this one (as goes Davis, goes this Warriors offense).

Finally, the one place the Bucks do play some real defense is at home, where they allow 95 ppg, which is down 5 points from their season average. After a tough home loss to Washington, the Bucks have beaten the struggling Heat, and a solid Hawks team with strong defensive efforts, and I expect another solid effort here tonight. In the end, Golden State is a team built on offense, and if they can't execute because of tired legs, then they can't win, plain and simple. Bucks roll!

Take the Bucks over the Warriors in this NBA match up.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Doc's Sports Picks For College Basketball

6 Unit Play. #544 Take Purdue -3.5 over Illinois

Game of the Month. This was our Big Ten Game of the Year last season and it won with ease and expect a similar result this year playing the home team Boilermakers. Purdue is 3-1 in conference play and all three of their victories have come over today’s posted number. The Fighting Illini has seen a major drop in talent and are just a .500 team with a poor 1-4 conference record. All four of their losses have come over today’s posted number. Purdue beat up on Illinois last year winning, 64-47 and expect Illinois to struggle to reach 50 points in this contest. Home court means a lot in the Big 10 and that will become evident today.

4 Unit Play. #554 Take Southern Illinois -10 ½ over Wichita State

This is a fade on Wichita State, who is really banged up and have lost three straight games and five of their last six encounters. They have been struggling to reach 60 points all season and that does not bode well when playing a hard noise defensive team like SIU. The Salukis have gotten off to a slow start as well but have pulled it together of late and have found a scoring punch, lighting up the scoreboard for 80 points at Evansville last Tuesday. If they reach 80 points at home today, they will win this game by 20 points.

4 Unit Play. #588 Take Nebraska -3 over Baylor

A classic example of a team that plays much better at home against a team that is not used to winning big games on the road. The Huskies have started out poorly in the conference at 0-2 and need this win in a big way to keep the faithful somewhat content. That being said, their only home conference loss came against undefeated Kansas and they do have some big home wins against Arizona State and Oregon. Baylor opened Big XII play with two bottom feeder conference team in Waco and they had trouble putting both of them away beating Iowa State by just 7 points and Oklahoma State by only 8 points. This is their first road game in the conference and it will also be their first conference and road defeat, as Nebraska gets it done on the road.

4 Unit Play. #615 Take Valparaiso +2 over Cleveland State

Classic example of a letdown spot for the Rams, who are coming off a big win against Butler on Thursday. The Crusaders already have four road wins this season and unlike Butler they can score points in bunches and will pull the upset tonight handing the Rams their first lost of the season.

4 Unit Play. #649 Take Boston College +5 ½ over Virginia

After a hot start to the season, the Cavaliers have fallen upon hard times losing three straight games including getting thumped by Xavier 108-70. BC continues to surprise teams and has yet to lose a game in the conference. Too many points for a struggling team to be laying.

4 Unit Play. #687 Take Fresno State +2 ½ over Hawaii

Hawaii is not Hawaii at home this season and has had trouble putting bad teams away and Fresno State is a much better team then they are. Wake up tomorrow and find out Fresno wins comfortably.

Strike Point Sports Picks For College Basketball

Saturday's College Basketball Picks

6-Unit Game of the Week. #571 Take Texas A&M -1 over Kansas State

Look for the Aggies to bounce back with a nice victory after their setback in Lubbock earlier this week. One thing that will separate TAMU in this one is their defense. Texas A&M plays some of the best team defense in the country, and they as a whole are one of the more physical teams I have seen over this season and last. Down low is where it starts with super freshman DeAndre Jordan and Joseph Jones. These two bigs can force Michael Beasley outside to play more of a perimeter game, and that's where he tends to get a little out of his flow. Kansas State is not very diciplined, and overall the Aggies are the stronger group with shooters Josh Carter and Dominique Kirk. KSU's only legit test at home was Oregon and the Ducks beat them. Texas A&M is a better team that Oregon, and they will hand Kansas State their second home loss off the season. Play the Aggies here.

2-Unit Play. #593 Take Kent State +2.5 over Ohio

The Golden Flashes have really come on as of late. Winners of four straight and nine of their last ten, Kent State has also won the last five meetings (4-1 ATS). They have shown more over the last couple weeks than has Ohio, and we like the underdog to come away with the outright win in this MAC clash.

2-Unit Play. #609 Take New Orleans +1 over Middle Tennessee State

I'm not buying what the Blue Raiders are selling. New Orleans is clearly the stronger team, and they should be favored in this spot. The Privateers have had success on the road this season at 5-2, and they are 13-5 overall compared to MTSU's 7-9. New Orlean's Bo McCaleb will be the best player on the floor, and he'll lead this team to the victory tonight.

2-Unit Play. #633 Take Illinois State +5 over Drake

Two undefeated MVC teams collide, and this game could help decide the conference's top team. Drake has been the league's big suprise, but with their top player still questionable and out for the last week or so, Illinois State will be more fit to come away with this showdown. Drake's Josh Young has been out for the last couple of games, and even if he gives it a go, he can't be 100 percent. I'll take a full Redbirds team over perhaps a better Bulldogs team minus their best player at full strength. Great value with the points, but Illinois State will have a great shot to steal one on the road.

2-Unit Play. #644 Take N.C. State -1.5 over Miami

We saw the Wolfpack play as poorly as they possibly could have in their last two road games. Now back at home, let's see how they respond, and I really liked to to bounce back in front of their own fans. Miami hasn't proven itself on the road, and we saw that in a loss dominated by Boston College earlier this week. This match-up is certainly gut-check time for the 'Pack, and they'll have enough to send the Hurricanes to their second straight loss in ACC play. Lay the small number here.

3-Unit Play. #683 Take Arizona State +8 over Stanford

Still trying to figure out this line. ASU beat Arizona, but somehow they are receiving almost twice the points as were the Wildcats when they played at Stanford on Thursday. The Sun Devils have really taken the league by storm, and they are a legit threat. Jeff Pendergraph and James Harden have carried the load, but Arizona State has a very solid core of perimeters, such as Ty Abbott and Derek Glasser. This is too many points, and we'll see the Sun Devils stay inside the number in a close ball game.

The Orange are going to either win this game by eight or ten points or they are going to lose outright. I’m expecting the former. I think it’s an indicator that the unranked team is the solid favorite over the Top 25 team and Nova is 0-5 ATS in its last five conference games. The Wildcats are young and I think they may have some trouble in the Dome today. It can be a daunting place if you’ve never played there before, and if SU can keep Scottie Reynolds under 30 I think they’re in good shape.
