20 Dime –

GEORGETOWN

Lay the big number with Georgetown tonight when they host Syracuse.

I don't see how the Orange are going to hang tonight.

I really don’t.

This team isn’t experienced enough to have the patience and positioning necessary to play good defense against the Hoyas’ offense, which is one of the most efficient in the nation.

Roy Hibbert is too much for the Syracuse big men to handle, and when they try to double down on him, the big guy will just kick it out for wide-open looks for his guards.

Syracuse is really suffering from the loss of guard Eric Devendorf, who is out for the season with an injured knee. The Orange don’t have another guard who can consistently knock down the open looks and that’s going to enable Georgetown to pull away in the second half.

Syracuse is just 4-11 ATS in its last 15 Monday games, while Georgetown is 15-5-2 ATS in its last 22 versus the Big East.


Lay the points as Georgetown rolls to an easy win and cover.



10 Dime –

PISTONS

Take the Pistons as the small road chalk tonight over the Magic.

Detroit has lost two straight and three of four, but I expect them to right the ship tonight against an Orlando team they’ve beaten nine straight times.

Orlando is a strange team, good on the road but mediocre at home. The Pistons slaughtered them in the first meeting back in November, 116-92. The fact Detroit won so big was even more impressive considering they were without Rip Hamilton in that game.

Detroit is 20-7-1 ATS in its last 28 games overall and the road team is 14-3-3 ATS in the last 20 meetings.


Lay the small number as Detroit grabs the road win and cover.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Drew Gordon

1. 200,000* Syracuse
2. 50,000* Magic
3. 50,000* Texas

1. Syracuse- First things first, this is a Big East rivalry game. If you watched their last two meetings (both of which featured Hibbert), how can you possibly think this game will be a blowout? The Orange are not intimidated by the Hoyas vaunted defense, and the fact their 7-1 SU & 6-2 ATS over their last 8 meetings should prove it.

Although many thought this Orange team would collapse without G Eric Devendorf, in fact, they've flourished. It opened the door for the talented freshman G Johnny Flynn to take over the backcourt, and clearly defined everyone else's place in the offense. Their goto guy is 6'11 F Donte Green, who infinately more talented on the offensive end than Hibbert. While fowards Harris (13 ppg 9 rpg) and Onuaku (13 ppg 7 rpg) also match up very well.

Another problem I have with Georgetown is perception. Because the Hoyas destroyed the Irish, and the Orange lost to Villanova at home in their games Saturday, everyone seems to be forgetting the history of this series. Coach Boeheim knows how to beat the Hoyas vaunted zone defense, in fact, he's a proven winner against it. They defeated what I consider to be a more talented Hoyas team last season (albeit at home) with ease.

Bottom line, I'm not saying the Orange win this game outright, but what I am laying is they'll keep this game well within the number. Orange's offense is built around beating defenses just like the Hoyas, and they have match ups necessary to make it happen.

Take Syracuse plus the points over Georgetown as your top-rated play of the day.

2. Magic- You want to talk about motivation? Then let's talk about the fact the Magic have lost 9 straight to this Detroit team, including their 4-game sweep in the playoffs last season and this season's most lopsided loss 116-92 in their only meeting this season. So why now? Let me explain...

First of all, the Pistons are playing like garbage right now, losers of 3 of their last 4 games, all to below average opponents (Knicks, Kings, Bulls). Their once fine-tuned offense is struggling, averaging 89 ppg on 40% shooting over their last 5 games. It appears to me that the Pistons have hit a wall after bursting out of the gate ealry on, and find themseves temporarily bored and hence vulnerable.

Second, the Magic learned from their first match up this season. Dwight Howard and company desperately wanted to avenge their 4-game sweep at the hands of this Pistons team, but came out tight and got down early. This time around the Magic come in focused and ready.

Bottom line, look for a serious difference in energy levels tonight, as the Magic want this game badly, while the Pistons have looked disinterested of late. Magic beat a red-hot Portland team in their last home game, and will build off that win with another solid effort here tonight.

Take the Magic plus the points over the Pistons in this NBA match up.

3. Texas- While everyone seems to be trumpeting Oklahoma State's defense at home, talking about how they allow 57 ppg on just 39% shooting there, I'm not so sure. True, wins over Texas Tech and Washington were nice, but what exactly do wins over Rogers State, Texas-Arlington, and Northwestern State (among others) really account for?!

Match up-wise, the Cowboys are going to have a problem with the Longhorns 3-guard attack of Augustin, Abrams, and James (who's listed as a guard, but at 6'7 & 10+ boards/game, is really a forward). There coming off back-to-back losses where they got killed on the perimeter, and they'll be facing an even tougher task in stopping Texas's perimeter game tonight.

Okie State's guards are decent, but they lack a true distributor, with Byron Eaton's 3.2 assists/game leading the way. In the frontcourt, Okie State F James Anderson will have his work cut out for him down-low, as 6'9 shot-blocking F Atchley won't give him an inch. Longhorns' defensive numbers may not be as good as the Cowboys, but they've matched up against tougher competition, and tonight's where it pays off.
Bottom line, Oklahoma State gets exposed a bit here tonight. They've got a couple nice home wins, but their schedule full of cupcakes, plus back-to-back losses against similar perimeter-oriented teams, have me siding with the Longhorns in this one.

Take Texas over Oklahoma State in this Big 12 match up.

LAS VEGAS TECH REPORT (LVTR): DENVER NUGGETS vs LA LAKERS

Play: LA LAKERS -4

Lakers are on a 7-2 run ATS vs Denver. Nuggets are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against the Pacific Division. Lakers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games when their opponent has scored 100+ points in their last game played. Home team is 11-5 ATS in the last 16 meetings. Denver needed all they had and a late rally to beat cellar dweller Minnesota. They will need more effort if they think they can get away with that vs the Lakers who are surprisingly playing good defense as of late. Denver is still a medical ward of injuries as now Nene, Atkins, and Kenyon Martin maybe out for tonight's match up

Loyola Marymount Lions @ Saint Marys Ca
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: Saint Marys Ca -26

Winning 11 of 15 days (73%) and 14 of 20 days (70%) in January and 16 of 21 (76%) days overall. 18 of 25 POD (71%) doing 1 per day and the only handicapper in the nation that is above 60% in Basketball 2007 after a 150 plays and counting. 3 comp winners in a row going for 4th comp winner in a row today. Once again, the public sees a lot of points and jumps all over the jockstraps of a Loyola Marymount who is ranked in the top 30 in the nation. I want you to follow me closely here. This is the same situation for one of the other selections today. St. Mary's had a very tight ballgame against Pepperdine and I can promise you that their coach is furious for having such a tight ballgame with Pepperdine after Gonzaga blew out Pepperdine on the road. Now, this team played a 5 point game against St. Mary's and that infuriates the St. Mary's coaching staff likely. Hell, that is why this line is as high as it is as this St. Mary's team who is a top 20 team in the nation will be furiously looking to blow out someone out of the gym today and St. Mary's fits the bill. Sure, Loyola can come around for the backdoor here and no, that would not surprise me, but keep in mind that Loyola is just 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog and 3-13-2 ATS in their last 18 road games overall. This St. Mary's team beat a Santa Clara team 76-45 by 31 points who is a top 175 team and I certainly think they have the potential to hammer a team that is top 300 in the nation.


Game: Canisius Golden Griffins @ Siena Saints
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: Siena Saints -20.5 (-109) (Play of the Day)

I"ve always said that when you see 66% of the public on an underdog, shy away from it and favor the - the favorite as public underdogs that are heavily favored rarely do well. I've provided countless examples including the fact when the world was on the Pack on the road against Dallas as the Cowboys covered or when the Mavs were in Utah and the world was on Dallas and Utah ended up covering with relative ease - well, much is the same case today when the Saints play Canisius. Sure, Canisius beat Niagara at home and that was a very good effort on their part. But, keep in mind this team has been terrible - dismal - on the road and I believe they are likely in for a let down here. My spreadsheets are what has led me to have the success I continue to have in basketball and I have them as one of the worst 20 teams in the nation referring to Canisius. Siena is big-time folks as they are one of the top 100 teams in the nation. Sure, Canisius has a great deal of revenge from losing by 30 to this team at home but Siena has beat similarly ranked teams at home by 25 on average. I also like the line movement I have seen offshore. Yes, Canisius beat Niagara at home who is also a top 100 team, but don't forget that this team lost 51-102 to Rider, the same team that lost by 11 to St. Peters who is outside the top 300 and lost to Penn State 40-93 - a team that Siena is better than in my power rankings by a few spots. Canisius is in for a letdown here and given this team's propensity to get blown out and the public riding them so hard, I will take Siena here. Canisius is 0-6 ATS following an ATS cover showing their inconsistent play and this team is 1-7 ATS on the road while Siena is 4-0 ATS against teams with a losing straight up record meaning that they do well in a potential blowout game.


Game: Pepperdine @ Santa Clara Broncos
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: Pepperdine +9 (-110) (Normal)

I think Pepperdine finally showed some heart in their last game when they went on the road to lose by 5 points to St. Mary's who is a top 20 team in the nation in the power rankings. That came off the heels of getting blown out by Gonzaga and this team has just 4 wins on the year and desperately needs to win their 5th straight ballgame - do they do it today - no, but I do believe that this team has potential as they are ranked in the top 200 while Santa Clara is ranked in the top 175 and my spreadsheets show that as a 4 to 5 point win. Remember, Santa Clara also played St. Mary's and lost by 31 points a score of 45-76 - the same team that St. Mary's lost by 5 on the road to. Does this mean they are equally as good, no, but it does mean that Pepperdine has the potential to play on the road and the same caliber on any given day, just depends on who shows up. Santa Clara also lost to San Jose State by 3 who is a top 200 team so why not Pepperdine who is desperately looking for their 5th win and will play with additional confidence playing such a tight game with St. Mary's? St. Mary's is 0-4 ATS following a straight up win and the Waves of Pepperdine are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 ballgames as an underdog of 7 to 12 points.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Monday Night NBA Opinion/Possible Best Bet
Cleveland (-3 ½) over MIAMI

The Heat are anything but hot, as they’ve lost 13 consecutive games while also being 2-17 ATS in their last 19 games. The return of Shaquille O’Neal was supposed to help but it is actually the loss of backup center Alonzo Mourning, who retired in mid-December, that has had the biggest impact. The Heat were actually a slightly better team when Mourning was on the floor than they were with O’Neal at the post and Miami was about 3 ½ points worse than an average team with Mourning backing up Shaq. Miami’s slide started when Mourning retired and the Heat are just 1-15 straight up and 3-14 ATS since that time, including 1-7 SU and ATS with O’Neal and Dwyane Wade playing. I rate the Heat at 7.0 points wore than an average team and they should be a 4 ½ point underdog in this game. Miami is only 1-15 ATS in their last 16 games when not an underdog of at least 7 points (0-11 ATS recently) and just 6-23 ATS in that price range for the season. The line is starting to catch up to them, so I’ll resist playing against Miami in a Best Bet unless the line goes down a bit more. I’ll take Cleveland in a 2-Star Best Bet at -3 points or less.
