Miss State over Alabama 79-63
Rick Stansbury has quietly got this thing turned around in Starkville. Jamont Gordon leads the team and is one of the top wings in the SEC. Charles Rhodes cleans the glass for the Bulldogs, who are off to a 5-0 start in the league and are looking to prove themselves against a mediocre, but dangerous Alabama team.

3* on Utah -3.5

The Utah Utes are in desperate need of a big home win over UNLV tonight to bulk up their tournament resume.  Utah’s 8-3 home record can be attributed to their defense allowing just 56.8 points per game.  They are winning their home games by 12 points per contest.  Utah has won 7 out of their last 9 home games against UNLV.  Utah is 42-21 ATS in home games versus good teams outscoring their opponents by 4+ points/game since 1997.  Utah has a knack for knocking off good teams at home over the years.  The odds makers are right on the money when listing the Utes as the favorite Wednesday.  Bet Utah at home.

Wunderdog

Old Dominion at Northeastern (7:00 PM Eastern)
Pick: Northeastern -1 (-110)

ODU is 8-4 at home but just 3-6 on the road. They have been known for defense this season but right now it's Northeastern who is playing tenacious D. The Huskies have held each of their last two opponents to the 40s on a combined 30-103 shooting effort from the field. Did they play cupcakes? Did they have easy home games? No on both fronts. Northeastern was road underdogs in both games but won both outright convincingly.Now they go home where they are 4-2 on the season. They will have the confidence here to be aggressive again and limit ODU's offensive success.The Monarchs are off a great shooting game in which they hit 55.1% from the field and scored 73 points. However, this team is 1-12 ATS in their last 13 games coming off a 55%+ performance. Northeastern is 7-0 ATS in home games in February dating back to last season and we like them to win and cover here as well.

PricelessPicks

1 Unit on Sacramento -9

The Kings are clearly a different team with health on their side.  They have won 4 straight games and 7 of their last 9 and I look for them to crush Seattle tonight.  The Sonics had a nice little run going until they went down against the Bulls.  Heading out on the road with no momentum will not play in Seattle 's favor.  Seattle is 4-19 on the road this season and only 8-15 ATS in those games.  The Sonics are 3-11 ATS as a road underdog of 6.5 to 12 points this season and 0-7 ATS in road games after failing to cover 2 of their last 3 against the spread this season.  Lay the points.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

FERRINGO

3.5-Unit Play. Take #724 Duquesne (-1) over St. Joseph’s
This is a great letdown spot to get in on against a team we've been riding for a month. St. Joe's will be without forward Ahmad Nivins, is coming off a blowout win over a rival Villanova, and is headed to Xavier for a huge game this weekend. That all makes this the perfect trap in Duquesne, a team that plays 10-deep and will be amped up for

2.5-Unit Play. Take #750 Bowling Green (-2.5) over Central Michigan
Louis Orr seems to have his boys headed in the right direction, as the Falcons have won three of their last four and have played very well at home over the past month. Bowling Green already has three-point home wins over Miami, OH and Ohio, two teams that are better than shaky Central Michigan. CMU has been an underachiver for most of the year and is just 3-7 ATS in its last 10. The Chips have lost their last five road games by an average of 15 points apiece. The favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and the home team is 7-1 ATS in this series.

2.5-Unit Play. Take #786 Bradley (-6) over Missouri State
Note: This was bumped from a 2.0 Unit play.

Daniel Ruffin's return has made all the difference and suddenly the Braves are a sleeper in the Missouri Valley. Bradley has covered four straight since regaining its top player and this team is still exceptional at home. Conversely, Missouri State has a lot of problem playing away from home (1-10), shooting under 30 percent from deep for the season on the road. The home team is 7-1 ATS in this series, Bradley is 39-19 ATS at home and SMS is 7-19 ATS in its last 26.

2-Unit Play. Take #730 Syracuse (-3) over Connecticut
Unranked team as a home favorite against a ranked team.

2-Unit Play. Take #744 Oklahoma (-2.5) over Texas
Unranked team as a home favorite against a ranked team.

2-Unit Play. Take #770 Georgia (-3.5) over Vanderbilt
Unranked team as a home favorite against a ranked team.

2-Unit Play. TEASER: Take #758 Miami (PK) over Florida State AND Take #791 Duke (+8.5) over North Carolina

Note: This is a 4.5-point teaser.



2-Unit Play. Take #783 Nebraska (+10.5) over Kansas State
This play on Nebraska and the play on Tulsa are reverse line movement plays. Nearly 90 percent of the public is on Kansas State tonight and the line has already dropped a full point. The Wildcats are stellar underneath and shouldn't lose this game, but I think they could struggle a bit. I am not high on this KSU team at all and their spotty guard play still makes them a dicey bet.

2-Unit Play. Take #773 Tulsa (+9) over Houston

1.5-Unit Play. Take #798 Baylor (-7.5) over Texas Tech
I liked this matchup even before the Bobby Knight debacle. Baylor was coming off a tough loss at Texas and should have a little more zip in their step when the Red Raiders come to down. Texas Tech has been an awful road team - even with the elder Knight at the helm.

That's it for today. Good luck.

1 Unit on New Orleans Hornets +5.5

The New Orleans Hornets have already beaten the Phoenix Suns twice this season including a 118-113 road win their last meeting.  Now there is turmoil in Phoenix with the big trade that is supposed to bring Shaq to town while the Suns give the Heat Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks in return.  If Marion plays tonight, his heart will not be 100% into this game.  The Hornets will be fighting extremely hard for a win after losing 3 consecutive games now.  New Orleans is 15-7 ATS in all road games this season.  New Orleans is 13-3 ATS after 3 or more consecutive losses over the last 2 seasons.  Cash in with New Orleans as the underdog.

1* on Wake Forest -2

Wake Forest has yet to lose at home this season.  At 12-0 on the year, Wake Forest is a great free pick as they take on Georgia Tech.  Georgia Tech is giving up 79 points per game on the road this season.  Wake Forest is yielding just 60 points per game at home.  Georgia Tech is 1-8 ATS in road games when playing only their 2nd game in 8 days over the last 2 seasons.  Georgia Tech is 2-10 ATS in road games after a game where they failed to cover the spread over the last 2 seasons.  Wake Forest remains undefeated at home.  Take Wake Forest and lay the points.

DOC'S

4 Unit Play. #735 Take Ball State +16 over Kent State
This is a mismatch in talent, but the Cardinals have been playing better of late and have not be blown out in a game since January 16th. They have lost four straight, but only one game has come by over ten points. The Flashes are coming off a tough loss against Toledo and will come out flat on Wednesday and allow Kent State to hang it this game for 40 minutes before losing by just 10 points.


4 Unit Play. #758 Take Miami -4 ½ over Florida State
Both teams have struggled during ACC Conference play but the Hurricanes still have an outstanding record when playing at the BankUnited Center. They are currently 10-1 and played pretty well @ Duke over the weekend. Tonight they will take it to their in-state rival and give us the cash.


5 Unit Play. #769 Take Vanderbilt +4 over Georgia
The Dawgs sit at the bottom of the SEC East Standing and really have trouble scoring the basketball and putting up points. They have lost three straight games and not reached the sixties in two of this contests. Vandy has played a tough schedule this season and will be able to knock off Georgia and win this game straight-up.


4 Unit Play. #775 Take Kentucky -3 over Auburn
The Cats are starting to put it together under their new coach and have dominated Auburn over the coarse of time winning 81 of the 98 all-time meetings. Kentucky plays outstanding defense and once they get a lead, they will be able to cruise to victory. They have won three straight games against Tennessee, South Carolina, and Georgia and those three are all better teams that what they will see tonight from the Tigers.


4 Unit Play. #786 Take Bradley -6 1/2 over Missouri State
This is more a play against the Bears, who are terrible when the game does not take place @ the Hammond Center. The Braves were hit hard by injuries earlier this season, but are now healthy and have won five straight games. Bradley is a great three point shooting team and because of that will be able to reach 90 points this evening and thus be able to cover this touchdown spread. Jeremy Crouch will come up big yet again propelling the Braves to victory. Missouri State is just 1-8 on the road this season.


4 Unit Play. #792 Take North Carolina -4 over Duke
This is the game we have all been waiting for and it has nothing to do with the players on the court. Loud month Dick Vitale will make his debut for ESPN tonight when two of the top three squads in the nation square off at the Smith Center in Chapel Hill, NC. The line is low because Ty Lawson probably will not play, but Carolina has been blowing teams out at home all season long. The best player on the floor is Tyler Hansbrough and I do not think Duke has an answer for him inside. This should be an exciting game to watch and both teams can score points and thus UNC will be able to cover in this contest. Carolina beat Duke twice last season and tonight will complete the trifecta.


4 Unit Play. #801 Take Wilmington +1 ½ over Delaware
This is a play against the Blue Hens who after a hot start have fallen flat losing five out of six games including three straight. Wilmington has dominated this series winning 12 of the 15 match-ups and will jump on Delaware early and watch them throw in the towel on a season that started off so well.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

STRIKE POINT SPORTS

2-Unit Play. #725 Take Akron +1 over Western Michigan

A very big game in the MAC, both teams come in at 6-2 in conference play, however it will be the Zips that emerge out of this game as the winner. Akron has won and covered the last four meetings, as well as going 6-2 ATS in its last eight road games. The Zips are also 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games vs. the MAC. They get it done in Michigan.

2-Unit Play. #729 Take Connecticut +3.5 over Syracuse

UConn is the east coast's hottest program. They have won five in a row, including victories over ranked teams Indiana and Marquette, as well over rising Louisville. Syracuse hasn't showwn much defensively this year, and they are extremely thin, going no more than seven deep. With the Huskies' bigs, Connecticut should again win the rebounding and free throw edge, and getting 'Cuse in foul trouble will be a big advantage in this one. UConn keeps its winning streak going in the Carrier Dome.

3-Unit Play. #767 Take Notre Dame -1 over Seton Hall

Two Big East schools square off, both capable of putting a lot of points up. However, Notre Dame's size and physical nature down low with Luke Harongody and Rob Kurz, not to mention an thriving point guard in Kyle McAlarney will be the difference. This Irish team has really come together this season, and here they'll come through on the road to keep pace with first place Georgetown.

3-Unit Play. #769 Take Vanderbilt +4 over Georgia

The 'Dores have hopefully turned a corner in SEC play, taking care of business at home against Auburn. Vandy struggled on the road, but to teams that are arguably better or as good as them. Here facing Georgia, Vanderbilt is the stronger team, and they take this one outright. San Foster has really stepped up his game as a senior, and he'll bring a strong effort to lead the Commodores to the victory in Athens.

3-Unit Play. #788 Take Utah -3 over UNLV

A pretty strong team at home, the Utes get the check mark in this Mountain West clash. I don't think UNLV has been challenged much away from Vegas, and Utah could surely use this win to get back to .500 in league play and make a push towards the top of the league, or at least gain some momentum for the conference tournament. Utah covers as the small favorite.

1 Unit on Washington +6.5

The Spurs have won 2 in a row on the road, but after playing last night in Indiana, it's going to be very difficult for them to get back up for another one tonight.  Washington has struggled its last several games, but watch how a date with the defending world champs ignites its competitive spirit tonight.  The Wizards are 15-10 SU and ATS at home this season.  The Spurs are 10-11 SU and 8-13 ATS on the road.  Here's the key trend: the Spurs are only 1-8 ATS when playing on back-to-back days this season.  Washington is also 9-0 ATS in home games versus poor pressure defensive teams forcing 14 or less turnovers/game this season.  Take the Wizards at home.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

RAS

*Two side plays Wednesday:

St Josephs at Duquesne (-1) - 4:00pm Pacific - Game #723-724
The Dukes are having a breakthrough type season under well liked head coach Everhart. Tonight they have a great opportunity for an elusive signature win. Duquesne suffered a disappointing home loss two games back vs UMass and that may have carried over to their bad loss at St Bonnie over the weekend, as they shot near season lows in both games. The Dukes will definitely be sky high for this game as they host the A-10's first place team, look to rebound from an embarrassing loss, and look to avenge a ridiculous 48 point loss to the Hawks last season. St Josephs is 2-1 in their last three conference road games but the two wins came by just 1 at Temple, and by just 2 at George Washington. The Hawks are coming off a big win over city rival Villanova on Monday and will be playing their fourth game in an eight day span tonight. St Josephs is not a deep team, they primarily use a seven man rotation, but tonight will be without top minute getter Ahmad Nivins due to an ankle injury suffered in last game. Nivins is second on the team in scoring and rebounding. Little used reserve center Moody unexpectedly left the team before last game as well. Duquesne's platoon substitutions and uptempo style of play is designed to wear down opponents which makes SJU's fatigue and depth a major concern tonight. Take the home team.

Play: Duquesne -1 1/2 UNIT

UNLV at Utah (-3) - 5:30pm Pacific - Game #787-788
Big home game for Utah tonight as they look for a breakthrough win and seek revenge for five straight losses to the Rebels. The Utes showed class in non-conference play winning at Cal and losing by just 2 at Gonzaga. They have been snakebitten by a 3 point loss to BYU and two overtime road losses at SDSU and New Mexico in conference play. They are coming off a businesslike win at Colorado State last Saturday and should be primed for a top effort tonight. In conference games, Utah leads the MWC in both FG% shooting and FG% defense. UNLV meanwhile ranks just 5th and 6th respectively. Even last years more talented sweet 16 team only went 4-4 in MWC road games. They are off to a 3-1 start this year but struggled with lowly Colorado State, lost at Air Force by 12, won at SDSU by just 3 with some luck, and beat TCU by 12 after the Frogs lost their leading scorer to injury early in the game. This will be UNLV's toughest conference road test yet and the first against a team with a legitimate big man. UNLV's lack of size has been an issue all season as they have a -5.4 rebounding margin in conference play entering this game. Utah boasts an 87-11 record in conference home games over the past 13 seasons. Give the points.

Play: Utah -3 1/2 UNIT

Brian Marshall

Game: Ball State vs. Kent State

Plays On: Kent State -16

Game Analyses: Kent State (record: 17-5) should be able to get an easy win tonight against Ball State (record: 3-17).

Kent State has the much more talented offense and defense. This means Kent State will find many easy ways to score, while Ball State finds it hard to score. This is the perfect recipe for a Kent State blowout win!

Kent State has been a great at home team. In fact, Kent State is 28-11 ATS in their last 39 home games. The home team is also 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings between these teams.

Take Kent State -16

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Michael Cannon

20 Dime –

GEORGIA STATE

Take the points with Georgia State tonight as the home dog against Vcu.

Do not be misled by the Panthers record. This team has been extremely competitive this year, with no fewer than six games being decided by one or two points. Georgia State’s average game has been decided by 5.5 points, so you can see how close this team is to breaking out.

They just don’t know how to get over the hump yet.

It’s ok though, because coach Rod Barnes has shown the ability to control the tempo of games and he is also an effective schemer. He has an emerging star in 6-5 junior guard Leonard Mendez, who is averaging 18.5 points per game.

Georgia State won’t be intimidated tonight on its home court, not after coming within two points of Rams in Richmond on January 10.

Take the points with Georgia State as they stay within the number once again.

5 Dime –

WIZARDS

Take the points with the Wizards tonight when they host the Spurs.

At first glance this would appear to be a blowout…for San Antonio. Caron Butler is questionable for Washington, who has lost four straight and is being outscored by an average of 16 points during that span.

But San Antonio hasn’t been especially good in the second of back-to-backs this season, failing to cover seven of its last eight.

The Spurs will also be without Tony Parker tonight, who is nursing a left heel injury.

This will be San Antonio’s fifth game of a season-high nine-game road trip.

Take the points with the Wizards as they break out of their slump and keep it within the number at home.

MISSISSIPPI STATE

Take Mississippi State as the home chalk tonight over Alabama.

The Bulldogs had been on fire, winning nine in a row before losing their last two, at Arkansas and a five-point home loss to Tennessee.

Alabama is too erratic to stay within this number tonight and Mississippi State has the advantage in the paint and in the backcourt.

The Bulldogs are 22-8 ATS in their last 30 Wednesday games and 23-11 ATS in their last 34 home games.

Take Mississippi State as the home chalk tonight over Alabama.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Drew Gordon

1. 400,000* Bradley
2. 50,000* St. Joseph's
3. 50,000* Wake Forest
4. 50,000* Hornets

1. Bradley- Great spot for Bradley, which finds itself in the perfect position to get some real revenge on a Missouri State team that's struggling right now. When I say "revenge" I mean it, as the Bears have won (and covered) against the Braves in 4 straight meetings, including once already this season & an 8-point win in Peoria last season. Tonight its payback time, and the way these two teams are playing right now, the timing couldn't better...

Missouri State has lost 4 of its last 5 games SU and all 5 ATS, including getting destroyed at Evansville 84-65 as 6-point favorites! They're playing garbage ball right now, scoring 61 ppg on just 37% shooting over that span. Not only that, but they've letup bigtime on defense, allowing 70 ppg on a ridiculous 49% shooting. They allow those kind of numbers here tonight, and they'll get blown out of the gym, plain and simple.

Bradley meanwhile is surging, winners of 5 straight (4-1 ATS), and playing like it. Remember the Bears blowout loss at Evansville mentioned above? Well, the Braves are coming off a 72-59 win and cover at Evansville Saturday, for those of you who like to compare opponents in-common. Also, while Bradley may be only 7-5 SU in Peoria this season, they're 39-19-3 ATS over their last 61 home games, not to mention the home team is 7-1 ATS over their last 8 meetings in this series!

Also, consider the match ups are right for Bradley, as Missouri State is a frontcourt-heavy team that doesn't rebound the ball particularly well. The Braves didn't have their second-leading scorer last time these two met, G Daniel Ruffin, who's 19 points 6 asissts and 6 rebounds against Evansville propelled the Braves to victory. When Bradley has their 4-guard attack firing on all cylinders, especially at home, they're extremely tough to beat.

Finally, its hard to ignore the fact that Missouri State is 1-10 ATS over their last 11 road games & 7-19 ATS over their last 26 games overall. With all the factors mentioned above, from revenge, to home court, to their recent play, to the trends... How could you possibly side with anyone but Bradley in this match up?! Look for the Braves to protect their house and grab the cash tonight in Peoria!

Take Bradley comfortably over Missouri State as your top-rated play of the day.

2. St. Joseph's- While I like what Duquesne has done this season, they're in the midst of a slump, losers of 4 of their last 6 SUATS. I myself wondered how effective coach Everhart's "1040" pressure system would work over the course of a season. His quick substitutions keep his players fresh, but never allow for anyone to get into an offensive rythmn. It appears as though it may be starting to back-fire, as the Dukes looked pathetic at St. Bonaventure, a team they should've crushed as 11-point favorites, but lost handily 74-59.

More of the same tonight, as it appears even the players may be starting to lose faith in coach Everhart's system. St. Joseph's is a rock-solid, fundamentally sound match up nightmare for this Duquesne squad... Exactly the type of team they don't want to see after a devastating St. Bonaventure loss.

Why are they match up nightmare? Because coach Martelli's bigmen are playing well, and while Shawn James is a shot-blocking machine, he'll have his work cut out for him against a deep and talented Hawks frontline of Pat Calathes, Ahmad Nivins, and Rob Ferguson. Coach Everhart has to make a choice, either get overpowered with only James on the court, or go against his system and start two forwards... Either way this Dukes team is in trouble.

Finally, the one edge the Dukes might have had was with Kojo Mensah, their transfer guard, but not so much anymore. He got benched for a time against St. Bonaventure for lack of intensity, and coach Everhart may be dealing with some disgruntled players who want more than just 22+ minutes per game in his quick-substitution system. This game has all the makings of a serious collapse for the Dukes, and the Hawks are more than happy to do it.

Take St. Joseph's plus the points over Duquesne in this A-10 match up.

3. Wake Forest- While the Deacons have been up-and-down this season, one thing you cannot deny is their play at the Lawrence Joel Coliseum, where they're 12-0 SU and 5-1-1 ATS this season. They're coming off impressive ACC home wins and covers against Miami-Florida and Florida State, two teams that already beat Georgia Tech SUATS this season. More of the same tonight and here's why:

The fact that the Yellow Jackets have been a terrible bet on the road for some time now cannot be ignored, going 6-13 ATS over their last 19 away, including 4-6 ATS this season. True, they've won two straight road games, at Virginia and at NC State, but I'm still not convinced. Their defense is far to porous to consider them in this contest, allowing 80 ppg on 45% shooting on the highway this season.

Match ups are close, but we'll give the nod to the Deacons, who've seen guards Teague and Smith step up big in the absence of L.D. Williams. In the frontcourt, you've got to love Wake's freshman F James Johnson, who should do real well against a smallish Yellow Jackets frontline. 7-footer Chas McFarland is still a work in progress, but G-Tech has no one even close in size, which should open up the paint for Johnson to goto work, as the Yellow Jackets struggle to match up.

Bottom line, until Wake Forest gives me a reason not to side with them at the Lawrence Joel Coliseum, I'll keep riding the gravy train! Guys, this Wake team is terrible on the road (1-7 SU), but from one reason or another, they go 110% at home and its showed in the win column and in their backers' bankrolls! Wake rolls in this one!

Take Wake Forest over Georgia Tech in this ACC showdown.

4. Hornets- Good spot to hop on the Hornets, as everyone is seemingly fading them because they've lost 3 straight games, but that's exactly the reason why I'm siding with them in this one. What better way to get right back in the Western Conference conversation than to beat the Suns at home... I'm not saying they'll win outright, I'm saying they give a "max-effort" tonight in an attempt to prove all their sudden doubters wrong tonight.

Guys, let's make one thing clear, New Orleans has beaten the Suns already twice this season, including a 118-113 outright win in Phoenix January 5th. They've also covered 4 straight against them, and come into this game looking to bounce back, and still scoring more than enough points to stick with Nash and company.

The problem the Hornets have been having is on defense, but we all know defense goes out the window when these two teams meet up. This is exactly the kind of game the Hornets need to get back on their feet, because as good as the Suns are at home, they're still only 9-12-1 ATS there this season. Note the Hornets have been money on the road, going an outstanding 22-7-1 ATS over their last 30 away games!

Finally, we all know this game features the two of the best point guards in the NBA, but there's some trouble brewing in Phoenix. The pending departure of Shawn Marion, and the subsequent addition of one of the biggest egos in the NBA, Shaquille O'Neal, has to be a distraction. Basically, Suns management is saying: "We can't do it with this team, " and that has to hurt what was one of more united teams in the West.
In the end, the Hornets are more than capable of beating the Suns outright here, but we'll take the points, and watch New Orleans rebound against a distracted Suns team, that's waiting around for their 35-year old broken-down saviour (good luck with that)!

Take the Hornets plus the points over the Suns in this NBA match up.

5 Unit Black Magic Spurs/Wizards BEST BET on Washington +7

The Washington Wizards will take advantage of big injuries to a couple of key players for San Antonio. The Spurs can only go so far without their floor general in Tony Parker. An injury to a key role player in Brent Barry has taken away the Spurs’ efficiency from 3-point range when teams double-team Tim Duncan. The Wizards will be able to double-team Duncan all night while not paying the price by leaving below-average 3-point shooters open from the outside. The Spurs own a losing road record this season while Washington is 15-10 ATS in their 25 home games. The old spurs will have tired legs tonight. San Antonio is 1-8 ATS when playing on back-to-back days this season. Cash in with Washington as the underdog.
