Sunday's Tip Sheet
By Chris David


Sunday’s pro basketball card has seven games on tap, including four nationally televised tilts. Six of the seven games feature non-conference battles, which are always the toughest games to handicap.

Before we break down the slate, be sure to stay abreast with our Injury Report.

**San Antonio at Boston**

San Antonio (32-16 straight up, 23-25 against the spread) and Boston (38-9 SU, 28-17 ATS) tip off Sunday’s action in what could be a preview of this year’s NBA Finals. The Spurs have quietly ripped off four straight victories, including a 99-93 overtime win against New York on Friday. Boston continues to dominate despite not having its best player, Kevin Garnett (abdominal), for the past six games. The club has gone 4-2 SU and 3-3 ATS without KG in the lineup.

The Spurs own an impressive 13-3 against Eastern Conference opponents this year, but that doesn’t compare to the perfect 15-0 mark set by the Celtics against the West. A low-scoring affair should be expected as both the Spurs (91.2 points per game) and Celtics (89 PPG) stress defense. San Antonio has won nine of the last 10 meetings against Boston, including five straight victories in Massachusetts. Greg Popovich’s team has gone 7-3 ATS during this run.

System players should find the time to read Ed Meyer’s Acela Angle, which talks about the New York-Boston trip that opposing NBA teams face. The Acela is named after Amtrak’s super-fast train that runs between the two cities. The system is 23-0 ATS and that includes a 4-0 run this season. This matchup fits into the system as well.

**L.A. Lakers at Miami**


Sunday’s showdown between the Lakers (32-17 SU, 29-19 ATS) and Heat (9-40 SU, 17-30 ATS) was expected to be another Kobe-Shaq showdown in South Beach but that was before Miami shipped Shaquille O’Neal and his oversized salary to Phoenix via trade on Tuesday. In return, the Heat received Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks from the Suns. The duo is expected to play in this afternoon battle, which will be nationally televised on ABC at 3:30 p.m. EST.

With or without Shaq, the Heat should have their hands full against a red-hot Lakers club. Los Angeles has won and covered four of its last five, with three of the wins coming by double digits. Newly acquired forward Pau Gasol has already proven his worth, averaging 22 PPG and 9.3 boards in his first three games with the Purple and Gold. Since Miami snapped its 15-game losing skid on Jan. 26 to Indiana (98-96), the team has dropped six straight contests. The Heat haven’t performed well for their season ticket holders, owning a sorry 5-19 SU and 6-18 ATS mark. The series was split 1-1 last year, with the home team winning both battles.

**Dallas at New Jersey**

Dallas (34-15 SU, 20-26 ATS) meets New Jersey (21-29 SU, 19-31 ATS) on Sunday in the first of a quick two-game East Coast trip for Avery Johnson’s team. The Mavericks have been up and down this year on the road, going 12-12 SU and 10-14 ATS. Fortunately for them, the Nets have been beatable at home (10-15 SU, 7-18 ATS). Dallas has won three of the last four encounters with New Jersey, including last year’s season sweep that witnessed a pair of double-digit wins. The ‘under’ went 2-0 and is on a 3-1 run between the two squads.

**Charlotte at Detroit**

After losing three straight games from Jan. 18-21, Detroit (36-13 SU, 28-20 ATS) has ripped off seven consecutive victories and is making a push for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. The Pistons look for their eighth win a row on Sunday when Charlotte (4-17 SU, 7-13 ATS) visits The Palace of Auburn Hills. This will be the third meeting between the clubs this year. Detroit has won both of the first two, which includes a 19-point (104-85) win at home on Dec. 9. Total players have watched the ‘over’ cash in four straight in this head-to-head series and six of the last seven.

**Toronto at Minnesota**

Contrasting styles meet at Target Center, when Toronto (26-22 SU, 26-21 ATS) its explosive offense meet a defensive-minded Minnesota (10-38 SU, 22-25 ATS) squad. The Raptors have watched the ‘over’ cash in five straight and seven of their last eight games. Meanwhile, the Timberwolves has seen the ‘under’ go 6-1 in their last seven games. Minnesota hasn’t eclipsed the 100-point barrier in seven straight games. Despite the lack of scoring, the Wolves have gone 9-3 ATS in their last 12. Toronto has had Minnesota’s number of late, winning and covering six straight. The ‘under’ is 4-2 during this dominance by the Raptors.

**Denver at Cleveland**

Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James renew their rivalry on Sunday from Quicken Loans Arena in a non-conference battle televised nationally on ESPN at 6:30 p.m. EST. Denver (30-19 SU, 26-23 ATS) and Anthony have gotten the best of Cleveland (28-21 SU, 23-26 ATS) lately, winning all of the previous four meetings. Denver is averaging 110 PPG in its last five games, which has helped the team produce a 4-1 SU and 3-1-1 ATS mark. The ‘over’ has gone 4-1 during this stretch. The Nuggets have posted a 13-5 record versus the Western Conference this year, while the Cavaliers are 7-9 against the East. Cleveland has gone 15-7 SU and 8-14 ATS at home this year. Denver has allowed 109 PPG on the road en route to a 9-13 SU and 10-12 ATS mark. The ‘over’ is 13-9.

**Washington at Phoenix**

Washington (24-25 SU, 27-21 ATS) continues its West Coast trip Sunday with a battle against Phoenix (35-15 SU, 22-27 ATS). The Wizards have been struggling of late, going 0-6 SU and 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games. The Suns haven’t been much for gamblers recently either, watching the club go 0-4 ATS in their last four. Phoenix is 18-6 SU at home, but only 9-15 versus the number. The Wizards are allowing 102 PPG on the road, which has translated into a 9-14 SU and 12-10 ATS ledger. The ‘over’ is 15-8. The Suns have captured two straight and three of the last four against the Wizards, including a 122-107 win on Dec. 7 as 6 ½-point road favorites.

Re: Betting News and Notes - Feb 10

(14) Indiana (19-3, 9-9-1 ATS) at Ohio State (16-7, 10-9 ATS)

Indiana faces its second consecutive stiff Big Ten road test when it heads to Columbus, Ohio, to battle the Buckeyes.

The Hoosiers outlasted Illinois 83-79 in double-overtime on Thursday night, barely cashing as a two-point road chalk to halt an 0-3 ATS slide. Indiana has followed up consecutive defeats with back-to-back wins, improving to 8-1 in Big Ten play (4-4-1 ATS), including 4-1 on the road (3-2 ATS).

Ohio State bounced back from a five-point road loss at Iowa with Monday’s 65-55 victory over Michigan, moving to 4-1 SU in its last five. However, the Buckeyes failed to cash as a 13½-point home chalk, its second straight ATS setback after going 4-1 ATS in the previous five. Thad Matta’s squad is 7-3 in the Big Ten, but 5-5 ATS.

The Buckeyes topped the Hoosiers 74-67 in last year’s lone meeting, but fell just short as an eight-point home chalk as Indiana improved to 6-3 ATS in the last nine series meetings. The host is 4-0 in the last four regular-season clashes, but 2-2 ATS.

Indiana is 6-2 in road/neutral-site games (5-3 ATS). However, going back to last year, the Hoosiers are mired in a 5-12-1 ATS funk in Big Ten action.

Ohio State is 13-1 at home (5-0 in Big Ten play), with the only loss coming to then-No. 1 North Carolina. However, the Buckeyes are just 4-5 ATS in lined home contests (2-3 ATS in league).

The Buckeyes have been playing tremendous defense of late, allowing just 56.4 points per game on 37.5 percent shooting in their last five contests, holding all five foes to 60 points or fewer. Conversely, the Hoosiers have allowed 68 ppg in their last four contests (1-3 ATS).

The under is on runs of 6-1 for Ohio State overall, 6-2 for Ohio State at home, 12-2 for Ohio State on Sunday and 15-6 for Indiana on Sunday.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER


St. Joe’s (15-6, 12-7 ATS) at (13) Xavier (19-4, 9-10 ATS)

St. Joe’s looks to bounce back from its first loss in more than three weeks when it visits streaking Xavier in a key Atlantic 10 clash.

St. Joe’s went to Duquesne as a two-point road underdog on Tuesday and got hammered 102-88, halting a six-game winning streak, all in A-10 play. Although they’ve been winning on the floor, the Hawks (6-2 SU in the Atlantic-10) have been struggling at the window, going 3-5 ATS in their last eight overall and 1-5 ATS in their last six league contests.

The Musketeers slipped past Saint Louis 70-68 on Wednesday for their fifth straight victory. However, they failed to cover as an eight-point home chalk, falling to 2-6 ATS in their last eight, all in league play. Xavier leads the Atlantic 10 with a 7-1 SU record, one game clear of St. Joe’s.

This is the first meeting of the season between these conference rivals. The two split their season series last year, with the home team winning both contests, and they’ve alternated SU wins and losses in their last six battles. However, St. Joe’s is 5-2 ATS in the last seven. Finally, the underdog has cashed in each of the last five head-to-head matchups.

Xavier is 1-3 ATS in its last four home games, while the Hawks are just 1-4 ATS in their last five on the highway.

The under is 7-1 in the Hawks’ last eight overall and 8-4 in St. Joe’s road games this year (4-1 in the last four as a visitor). The under is also 5-2 in the Xavier’s last seven overall (3-0 at home), 6-1 in Xavier’s last seven on Sunday and 4-1 in the last five series meetings. On the flip side, the Musketeers have topped the total in 23 of their last 34 home games.

ATS ADVANTAGE: ST. JOE’S and UNDER


(5) UCLA (21-2, 14-6-2 ATS) at Washington (12-11, 8-14 ATS)


The red-hot Bruins try for a rare sweep through the Pacific Northwest when they battle slumping Washington at Bank of America Arena in Seattle.

UCLA took Washington State’s best shot on Wednesday in Pullman, but still prevailed 67-59, easily cashing as a 2½-point road favorite. The Bruins are on a 5-0 SU and ATS surge, all in Pac-10 play, and they continue to lead the conference with a 9-1 mark (8-2 ATS).

While the Bruins have been rolling, the Huskies have been going in the opposite direction, losing four in a row SU and ATS. That includes Thursday’s ugly 73-59 home loss to USC as a one-point underdog. Against the Trojans, Washington (3-7 SU and ATS in the Pac-10) made just 36 percent of its field-goal attempts (26-for-72), going an atrocious 2-for-21 from three-point land.

The Bruins are undefeated in Pac-10 road games this year, going 5-0 SU and ATS, with four of the five wins coming by eight points or more. However, today, they play in a venue where they haven’t won in more than four years, going 0-3 SU in their last three trips to Seattle. Last year, UCLA suffered a 61-51 loss at Bank of America Arena as a 3½-point chalk. Despite that result, the Bruins are still 5-2 ATS in their last seven games at Washington.

These teams met on Jan. 10 in L.A., and the Bruins cruised to a 69-55 victory, but they let off the gas pedal in the final three minutes, allowing the Huskies to cash as a 15-point underdog. The ‘dog is 5-2 ATS in the last seven series battles, and the home team is 4-0 SU in the last four (2-2 ATS).

Not only are the Bruins 5-0 SU and ATS when visiting Pac-10 rivals, they’re 9-0 in all of their road/neutral-site contests (7-1-1 ATS). Going back several years, UCLA is on a 45-22-1 ATS tear on the road. Also, the Bruins are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 overall, and if they go off as a single-digit chalk, note that they’re 5-0 ATS in that role this season.

Washington is 10-5 at home, but 5-9 ATS. The Huskies have lost three consecutive Pac-10 home games both SU and ATS, and they’re 2-4 when hosting league foes this season (1-5 ATS). Moreover, they’re 3-8 ATS as an underdog of less than 15 points this year.

UCLA has topped the total in seven straight games (all in the Pac-10), and the over is 4-1 in its five league road contests. Conversely, for Washington, the under is on runs of 13-3 overall, 9-2 at home and 15-6 in the Pac-10 (7-3 in league this year). Finally, the under is 5-1 in the last six series meetings, with last month’s game in Los Angeles staying low.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UCLA and UNDER


Clemson (17-5, 12-7 ATS) at (3) North Carolina (21-2, 15-5 ATS)

Clemson, which just missed handing North Carolina its first loss of the season a month ago, gets its second crack at the Tar Heels, only this time in Chapel Hill, where the Tigers have never won in 52 previous visits.

Clemson comes into this contest off of two impressive double-digit routs of Boston College (78-56 as a 10½-point home favorite) and Virginia (82-51 as a 2½-point road underdog). The Tigers are 5-2 in their last seven contests (4-3 ATS).

North Carolina is no doubt still stewing following Wednesday’s 89-78 home loss to rival Duke as a 4 ½-point home favorite. The Tar Heels, who played the game without star guard Ty Lawson (injury), allowed Duke to make 13 of 29 three-point attempts, while converting just 3 of their 17 tries from long range.

The loss to the Blue Devils snapped North Carolina’s three-game SU and ATS winning streak and dropped Roy Williams’ squad into second place in the ACC at 6-2 (4-4 ATS), one game ahead of Clemson (5-3 SU and ATS).

The Tigers blew several chances to put away the Tar Heels back on Jan. 6 in Death Valley, but North Carolina managed to force overtime, where it prevailed 90-88, though Clemson got the cash as a 5½-point home underdog. The Heels have won seven straight meetings dating to 2004, going 4-2 ATS in the last six.

Not only is Clemson 0-52 all-time in the Smith Center, but it has lost by double digits in 19 of its last 21 visits. Also, the Tigers have led at the half just three times in the 52 losses. In their most recent trip to Chapel Hill in 2006, Clemson fell 76-61 as a 7½-point road underdog.

Despite the loss to Duke, the Tar Heels are still on positive ATS runs of 36-16 overall, 25-8 at home (7-2 ATS at home this year), 22-6-1 following a SU loss and 4-1 on Sundays.

Clemson has cashed in six of its last seven games following a 20-point blowout win. Also, the Tigers are 5-3 ATS on the highway this year, but 1-2 ATS in ACC road games.

This game pits two of the nation’s highest-scoring teams against one another. Clemson (81.1 ppg, 14th-best in the nation) has tallied at least 70 points in 20 of 22 games, including all eight ACC contests. Meanwhile, the Tar Heels rank second in the country at 90.5 ppg and had scored at least 80 points in 16 straight games before Duke held them to 78 on Wednesday.

Clemson has stayed under the total in three straight games, and the under is 3-1 in its last four on the road. Also, the under is 5-2 in the last seven series clashes between these schools. However, the over is still on runs of 15-7 for Clemson overall, 16-7 for Clemson following a SU win, 7-2 for Carolina in ACC play this year, 7-2 for Carolina on Sundays, 11-5 for Carolina at home (6-3 this year) and 8-0 for Carolina following an ATS loss.

Finally, last month’s battle easily eclipsed the 162½-point posted total.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NORTH CAROLINA and OVER


Denver (30-19, 26-23 ATS) at Cleveland (28-21, 22-27 ATS)


Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James renew their rivalry of young superstars when the Nuggets travel to Quicken Loans Arena to take on the Cavaliers.

Anthony scored a career-high 49 points Friday night as he led Denver to a 111-100 home win over the Wizards, just getting the cash as a 10½-point favorite. Anthony shot 19-of-25 from the field, including 3-of-3 from beyond the arc, and 8-of-8 from the charity stripe en route to torching Washington.

The Nuggets have won four of their last five SU and ATS and covered the number in seven of their last 10 outings. Denver is just 9-13 SU on the road this year (10-12 ATS), but it comes into this one off back-to-back road wins and covers (at Portland 105-103 as two-point ‘dogs, and at Memphis 106-102 as a three-point chalk).

Cleveland returns home after back-to-back road games Thursday and Friday, losing to Houston 92-77 as 5½-point pups and beating Atlanta 100-95 but coming up short as 8½-point favorites. The Cavs are 1-4 ATS in their last five and just 8-14 ATS in front of the home fans this season.

Denver has dominated Cleveland lately, winning four straight meetings (3-1 ATS) and eight of the last 10 (7-3 ATS) dating back to 2003. In the lone battle this season back on Nov. 12, the Nuggets scored a 122-100 win as eight-point favorites.

George Karl’s Nuggets are on ATS runs of 23-7 against Central Division squads, 6-1 when playing after one day of rest, 9-3 in Sunday tip-offs and 38-17 against the Eastern Conference.

Despite its current 1-4 ATS funk, Cleveland is on positive pointspread runs of 5-1 in Sunday games and 21-9 against teams with a winning percentage better than .600.

The over is 4-0 in the Nuggets last four and 6-2 in their last eight Sunday games, but the under is 4-1 in the Cavs’ last five against the Northwest Division and 9-3-1 in their last 13 games after a day of rest.

ATS ADVANTAGE: DENVER


San Antonio (32-16, 22-25-1 ATS) at Boston (38-9, 29-17-1 ATS)

The Spurs shoot for their fifth straight road win when they visit the Celtics inside the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston.

After a shaky start to its season-long nine-game road trip with losses in Utah and Seattle, San Antonio has proceeded to go 4-0 SU (3-1 ATS) with three games left before they return home. Gregg Popovich’s squad has rattled off wins in Phoenix, Indiana, Washington and, most recently, New York, earning a 99-93 OT victory over the Knicks on Friday, but falling short as a seven-point favorite.

Boston is 4-1 SU and ATS in its last five overall, but the lone non-cover came on Friday, when the Celtics when to Minnesota and eked out an 88-86 road win as a 5½-point chalk. The Celtics are one of the league’s best at home, going 21-4 SU (15-10 ATS). They’ve won three straight at home since a 114-112 home loss to the Raptors on Jan. 23.

San Antonio is 9-1 SU (7-3 ATS) in the last 10 head-to-head meetings, but the last time these two saw each other was last March when the Celtics scored a stunning 91-85 upset road win as 13-point ‘dogs. Despite that result, the favorite is 7-2 ATS in the last nine series contests, but today is the first time in recent memory the Celtics have been favored over the Spurs.

The Spurs are 39-19-1 ATS in their last 59 against Atlantic Division teams, but otherwise they are on ATS skids of 6-13 overall, 4-9 on the highway, 1-4 as a ‘dog and 3-7 against the Eastern Conference.

Doc Rivers’ Celtics are on ATS runs of 4-1 at home against teams with a winning road mark and 5-0 against teams with a winning percentage higher than .600. On the flip side, Boston is on pointspread slides of 1-4 against the Southwest Division and 5-14 as favorites of less than five points.

For San Antonio, the under is on streaks of 13-3 after a day of rest, 12-3 in road games and 7-1 as an underdog. But for Boston, the over is on spurts of 7-3 against the Western Conference, 4-1 as a home favorite and 4-1 against the Southwest Division.

ATS ADVANTAGE: BOSTON

Sunday’s Pregame Buzz

NFL

AFC vs. NFC - Pro Bowl


* New England's record-setting tandem of QB Tom Brady and WR Randy Moss are skipping the Pro Bowl and will be replaced by Cleveland QB Derek Anderson and Cincinnati WR Chad Johnson. Other players who pulled out include San Diego TE Antonio Gates (replaced by Cleveland TE Kellen Winslow) and San Diego DT Jamaal Williams (replaced by Pittsburgh DT Casey Hampton).
* There will be 41 first-time Pro Bowlers playing in this game, which is the second-most since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 (there were 44 in 2000). The notable Pro Bowl virgins include Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger and Jacksonville RB Fred Taylor.
* Believe it or not, there have been some distractions in Hawaii, with Winslow asking for a contract extension and Johnson dealing with reports that he had requested a trade from the Bengals. Several other players are free agents, which means Honolulu is again serving as a recruiting base for other teams.
* This game features two of the best kick returners in recent NFL history and could very well be decided by Cleveland's Josh Cribbs or Chicago's Devin Hester. The duo has combined for 15 touchdowns over the last couple seasons.
* The AFC has won 5 of the last 7 Pro Bowls by an average of 13.6 points per game.
* The winning team has scored at least 31 points in 7 of the last 8 Pro Bowls, averaging nearly 40 points per game. The losing team has averaged almost 28 points during that same stretch.

Re: Betting News and Notes - Feb 10

For a solid bet, you couldn't beat the Heat

Maybe things will get better for Miami with new acquisitions Marion and Banks. They can't get worse.

Gamblers who like to bet on NBA games will have special interest in today's matchup between the Lakers and Miami, with Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks expected to make their Heat debuts at American Airlines Arena.

Why? Because bettors simply don't want to see the Miami money train come to an end.

Coach Pat Riley's team has lost 23 of its last 25 games -- including six in a row -- and covered the point spread only five times since Dec. 10.

But that was before the Heat traded Shaquille O'Neal to Phoenix for Marion and Banks, who could provide a spark to a struggling Miami team that has a 6-25 record against the spread in its last 31 home games.

Oddsmakers do not give the Heat much of a chance of turning things around against the Lakers, who are 2-1 since Pau Gasol was picked up in a trade from Memphis.

But even before Gasol joined the lineup, the Lakers were on a solid roll against the spread. They have covered the line in six of their last seven games and five of their last six road games, including Friday night's 117-113 victory at Orlando.

AccuScore.com, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has the Lakers showing a slight improvement with Gasol in the current lineup, but predicts a much different story once big man Andrew Bynum returns off the injured list.

"When Gasol does not have to be the primary big man as the main rebounder and scorer in the post, the Lakers improve by a whopping six percentage points," said Jonathan Lee of AccuScore.com.

Most sports boards believe the Lakers have improved their chances of winning this season's NBA championship with the addition of Gasol.

In the latest odds listed at Sportsbetting.com, the Lakers are at 4-1 behind only Boston, which holds down the favorite role at 5-2.

Phoenix and San Antonio are listed at 9-2.

Baseball

Here are three proposition baseball bets available at Bodoglife.com:

Will Major League Baseball suspend or fine Pedro Martinez for his participation in cockfighting? Yes (+110) or No (-150); How many games will pitcher Erik Bedard win this season playing for the Seattle Mariners? Over/under 16.5 games; What will Bedard's earned-run average be? Over 3.00 (-130) or Under 3.00 (even).
