Thursday Service Plays

Priceless Picks

1 Unit on Xavier -10

Xavier is 14-1 at home and 10-1 in conference play this season.  Duquesne doesn't stand a chance against the 12th ranked Musketeers.  Duquesne has never won 3 consecutive Atlantic 10 road games, and it won't even come close to happening tonight.   Xavier is 12-1 ATS in home games versus good defensive teams - shooting pct defense of <=42% over the last 2 seasons and 8-1 ATS in home games versus very good teams - outscoring their opponents by 8+ points/game over the last 2 seasons.  The Musketeers are also 18-5 ATS after 2 straight games where they attempted 50 or less shots since 1997.  After a two-game stint on the road, I expect Xavier to really explode offensively tonight back on its home floor.  Lay the number.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

DUQUESNE
Game: Duquesne vs. Xavier
Prediction: Duquesne Reason: I'm taking the points with DUQUESNE. The Musketeers are a solid and well-balanced team. That being said, they've played four games in a row which were decided by four points or less and I feel that tonight's number is too high vs. an improved Dukes lineup which can score points with the best them. Indeed, Duquesne ranks fourth in the nation with 84.1 points per game and has eight players averaging at least seven points. The up-tempo Dukes (16-8, 6-5) have already clinched their first winning season since 1993-94, and can match that team’s win total with one more victory. The Dukes have also been involved in a pair of extremely close games recently. They lost by three points vs. Richmond last time out after winning by two at Dayton in their previous game. Prior to that, they won by 17 at La Salle and beat St' Joseph's by 14, topping 100 points in both those games. The Musketeers, 3-5 ATS when coming off a conference win, managed to scratch out a cover in their last game. They're still just 1-4 ATS their last five though. The Dukes, who are 3-1 ATS their last four, are 14-6 ATS with one push, the last 21 times that they were listed as road underdogs in the +9.5 to +12 range. Listed as +13 point underdogs, the Dukes upset the Musketeers 93-91 the last time that these teams faced each other. They know that a win here would greatly improve their otherwise remote chances of an NCAA at-large bid and I look for them to give the Musketeers a much tougher game than expected once again.

NBA

UNDER Heat/Rockets
Prediction: under Reason: I'm playing on the Rockets and Heat to finish UNDER the total. The Rockets were originally expected to be a higher-scoring team this year, placing a greater emphasis on offense than in previous seasons. That hasn't really turned out to be the case though. Once again, they are one of the best defensive teams in the league. The 90.9 points per game they allow on this floor ranks as the fourth best mark in the league, second to only San Antonio in the West. The offense has remained mediocre though, managing only 95.8 points per game on this floor. That's the sixth worst mark in the entire league and third worst in the Western Conference. In fact, only the Clippers and T-Wolves score fewer points on their home floor in the West. Not surprisingly, the Rockets have seen the UNDER go a profitable 16-9 at home for the year. They really tighten things up defensively in games they are "supposed to win" as that includes a healthy 4-1 mark when they've been listed as home favorites in the -9.5 to -12 range. The Rockets have also been at their best defensively of late. In fact, they've allowed an average of just 84.3 points in their last seven games, while seeing six of those seven games fall below the number. None of those seven opponents reached 90 points. Tonight, they'll be facing a Miami team which is scoring a league-worst 92.7 points per game. Note that the Heat have seen the UNDER go 3-1 their last four games and 9-5-1 their last 15. The Rockets, who have seen the UNDER go 10-7 on the season when facing a team which previously defeated them, are proud of their defensive prowess. As McGrady recently was quoted as saying: "What we’re developing on this team is a team like the Pistons. Great defensive team, going out there and playing together and not relying on one or two people to score the rock." Playing with "revenge" from an earlier loss at Miami, I expect them to play very well at that end of the floor again tonight. Lastly, it's worth noting that tonight's over/under line is significantly higher than it was for the earlier meeting as it was just 179.5 or 180 for that game. I feel that tonight's bigger number provides us with excellent value and I look for the final combined score to beneath it. *TNT Total of the Month

NHL

LIGHTNING
Game: Tampa Bay Lightning vs. New York Islanders
Prediction: Tampa Bay Lightning Reason: I'm playing on TAMPA BAY. The Islanders have been on an impressive run of late. Last night, they battled back from an early 2-0 deficit to tie the Capitals and force overtime. They would eventually win in a shootout, marking their fifth straight victory. Already missing defenseman Brendan Witt, Chris Campoli and Bruno Gervais, the Islanders are also now without Andy Sutton as he was injured late in Monday's win over San Jose. While they were able to earn another valuable two points yesterday, I expect the lack of defensive depth to catch up with the Isles in today's "back to back situation" and what will be their third "tough" game in the past four days. While the Isles can now afford to relax just slightly, the Lightning cannot, as they are last in the Eastern Conference with only 22 games remaining. Like their hosts, the Lightning went to overtime last night. However, the back-to-back situation shouldn't be quite as gruelling as, prior to last night, they had the previous three nights off. (TB previously played on 16th. NYI previously played on 18th.) Despite their poor overall record, the Lightning have still managed to win seven of their past nine road games. Playing with "double-revenge" from a pair of earlier losses in this series, I'm expecting a highly motivated effort and for them to snap the Isles winning streak tonight.

Re: Thursday Service Plays

Wunderdog

Game: San Jose at Philadelphia
Pick: Philadelphia -120

Philadelphia has lost eight straight games while San Jose has dropped five straight. This is the best chance for Philadelphia to break out of their slump against the Sharks who are 1-6 on the road since the begininning of 2008. Philly can score at home (3.3 per game) and San Jose is averaging just 2.0 goals per game over their last five. Favorites off three straight losses, in the second half of the season, hit at a 71% clip. San Jose is 21-32 off 2+ straight losses the past three seasons and we like Philly to hand them another loss tonight.

Re: Thursday Service Plays

Lock Of The Day

Arizona WildCats +2

Don't be fooled by Washington's fluke win over UCLA. The linesmakers still are rewarding them for it. Arizona is clearly a better team with more talent here. Jerryd Bayless and Chase Bundinger are an exceptional one-two punch that Washington can't contend with on the perimeter. They're much better than their 16-9 record indicates. Take the Cats.

LARRY NESS

Play: Arkansas-Little Rock

REASON FOR PICK: Reports are that Arkansas State's leading scorer Banks (18.0) has been at practice this week and will play tonight, after missing the team's last game with personal problems (undisclosed). He teams with Wedel (15.2) to give the Trojans an excellent backcourt. Up front, the team goes with swingman Chia-Kur (11.4-3.7), the 6-6 Morgan (9.2-6.8) and the 6-8 Gant (6.3-4.5). Despite this fairly solid starting five, the Indians come into this game on a seven-game losing streak, failing to cover any of their last five. Arkansas-Little Rock does not have a single player averaging in double digits but the Trojans have six players who have participated in all 25 games this year, while guard Eggins (8.2-4.3) has played in 24 straight, after missing the opener. Talk about balanced scoring. Guard Moore (9.1) leads the way, followed by the 6-7 Smith (8.8-5.3), Eggins, guards Akins (7.5) and Fowler (7.0-3.7) plus forwards Edwards (6.1-3.6) and Bails (4.5-3.0). The Trojans are 11-3 SU at home and should have few problems avenging their earlier Jan 5 loss to Arkansas St in Jonesboro (77-62). Lay the points with the Trojans.
