Detroit Pistons at Orlando Magic

Detroit looks to shed a two game losing streak when they take on the Magic in Orlando this evening. The good news for the Piston is that they've dominated the Magic of late in this series, winning 13 of the last 14 games straight-up on the court, including nine consecutive wins in a row. Detroit also finds themselves in one of their best roles as they are 17-3 SU & 16-4 ATS in games off back-to-back SU favorite losses, including 6-0 ATS in non-division battles in this role. And check out Orlando's horrific mark as a home dog in SU losses when playing off a win: 1-15-1 ATS in their franchise history. Put it all together and we'll look for the Motor City skid to end here in Disneyland tonight. Good luck - Marc Lawrence

Play on: Detroit

DALLAS over *Washington (NBA)...Dallas starting to put things together, winning 7 straight (5 covers) through Jan. 13. Washington's upset at American Airlines Arena (110-98 on Nov. 26) ensures a focused effort from Mavs. The Wizards have underachieved as a home dog, dropping 4 of first 5 in that role. Washington goes into this matchup off back-to-back games against New York, and often that situation detracts from preparation for the next foe, which in this case is Dallas.

DALLAS 98 - *Washington 85 RATING - 10

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Golden State Warriors

The Minnesota Timberwolves look to wrap up a three game road trip when they travel to take on the Golden State Warriors. The Timberwolves come into this one on a six game losing streak and are a horrible 1-20 SU on the road. However, they have been decent versus the number going 10-11 ATS. They played Golden State less than a week ago losing SU but covering the number.

Other than being a very young team with little talent their main problem has been their defense as they are giving up a high 103 points per game on the road. Their offense hasn't been able to keep up as they score only 93 points per game.

The Golden State Warriors are back home for the first game of a three game home stand after winning three of four on the road. The Warriors have done well at home going 11-7 SU but have struggled to cover the number as they are only 8-10 ATS.

Golden State's offense has been potent at home averaging 112 points per game. However, that run and gun style has been at the expense of their defense as they give up a rather high 108 points per game at home.

SUPPORTING TRENDS: GOLDEN STATE is 7-15 ATS (-9.5 Units) after a game where they made 12 or more 3 point shots this season. MINNESOTA is 16-6 ATS (+9.4 Units) in road games when playing with double revenge - 2 straight losses vs. opponent over the last 2 seasons.

It might be a bit perplexing to take the Timberwolves but consider that they are 24-19 ATS versus the Warriors since 1996 including 2-1 ATS this season. I'm grabbing the points and Minnesota in this one.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Dave Cokin.

My free pick of the day is the game between (701) SAN Spurs and (702) CHA Bobcats. Take "(701) SAN Spurs".

"The Spurs have not been sharp lately, and I've actually been mostly fading them in this recent stretch. But I like the champs tonight. Off two straight losses, they're going to play this one hard if the numbers are a good barometer. SA is 3-0 SU off two straight losses this season, and they've lost three in a row only four times in the past three seasons. Charlotte has been good at home lately, so the number isn't prohibitive here. I'll look for the Spurs to nail the win and cover in this one."

Jim Feist.

My free pick of the day is the game between (715) UTH Jazz and (716) LA Clippers. Take "(715) UTH Jazz".

The big difference between these teams? One can shoot, the other can't. The Clippers shoot 42% from the field as a team, second worst in the NBA. The young, athletic Jazz shoot 48%, second best. The Clippers have lost 11 of 14 games despite playing 7 of the last 8 at home! Utah has won 7 of 9 games, and that included a 106-88 rout of LA on January 18. Utah shot 51% and had a +9 edge in rebounds in that blowout. Play the Jazz!

James Patrick Sports

Trailblazers vs. Hawks
Portland is on a roll but this is the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King and for some reason the Hawks always play a solid game on this traditional home date. Atlanta honors Dr. King with a win here.
3* Atlanta Hawks

Supersonics vs. Rockets
Rockets have apparently grown accustomed to playing without McGrady as they are 11-3 ATS since his most recent injury. The Rockets final home game of currant home stand and they are Red Hot as well.
3* Houston Rockets

Timberwolves vs. Warriors
T-Wolves are not winning many games but they are playing better under Randy Wittman and they catch the Warriors in their first game back home off an extended road trip and they will be a step slow for sure.
3* Minnesota Timberwolves

Pistons vs.Magic
The young Magicians look to break a horrible losing streak to Detroit in this game as they have dropped 9 straight to these Pistons and that includes a playoff sweep last season in the first round. This is a great time to snap the streak as Detroit has dropped 5 of 7 ATS. Young Magicians work their Magic here.
5* Pot of Gold Orlando Magic

For Monday take the Cavaliers down in South Beach

If this is the game that snaps the 13 game losing streak for the Heat then so be it but until Pat Riley's gutless piece of garbage team shows anything at all then I'll back King James and the visiting Cavs.

I cannot say that I completely trust Cleveland in this spot laying points on the highway and especially not when they just won and covered on Christmas Day in this same matchup but let's face it, the Heat players have quit and that was evidenced yet again in that last loss at home to the Knicks.

I cannot explain how Dwyane Wade, Shaw and the rest of the semi talented and former champs from a few years ago can have single digit wins this late into the season but not only is that the case but things don't seem to have any hope of improving. Miami has shown less than nothing over the entire season and for sure over the last few weeks.

Like I said above, if this is the game that Miami comes to play, which I guess could happen in this TNT scenario and we see a little rejuvenation, then so be it but the way things have gone I'll take my chances on a superstar in LeBron and at the very least a mediocre team in the Cavs.

Take the Mavericks as the small road chalk this afternoon over the Wizards.
Big revenge spot for Dallas. Washington dealt Dallas its first home loss of the season, 110-98, in late November.

The Mavs have clamped down on the defensive end, so don't expect Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler to go crazy here like they did back in the first meeting when they combined for 62 points.

Dallas is 13-3 SU in its last 16 games.

Take the Mavericks as they grab the road win and cover this afternoon over Washington.

2* DALLAS

Houston over Seattle

This is a brutally tough road situation for the Sonics as this will be the fourth consecutive game away from home. Saturday?s game in Dallas was a big one for star rookie Durant but the Sonics came up well short. Seattle has lost S/U in ten consecutive games with only two spread covers in that span of losing. Houston has been playing excellent basketball despite the injuries and the Rockets are coming off a big win over San Antonio. The defensive numbers are not even comparable in this game as Houston is a vastly superior defensive team and Seattle is allowing over 48 percent shooting in the last five games. The Rockets are riding a 7-2 ATS run and Houston has battle the #1 strength of schedule in the entire NBA. The Sonics are just 6-14 ATS on the road this season despite catching big spreads in many of those games. Look for Houston to control this game and come up with a lopsided win.

Greg Daraban

Minnesota (5-34) at Golden St (25-17)

The TWolves have struggled badly.They are 1-20 on the road (Ouch). They have just 3 wins vs the West. The Warriors are just 4 games behind the Suns. They are led by Baron Davis 22.4 and Stephen Jackson 20.3.This will be a blowout in Oakland today.

Take Golden St
