Minnesota Timberwolves at Toronto Raptors

Minnesota does not ordinarily force a lot of turnovers but forced 20-plus last night to key its home win over Utah. Doubt it will have such defensive success on the road versus the Raptors. Toronto is 8-3 S/U and ATS at home versus Minnesota, has won and covered four-of-five and three in a row at home. It is also 44-29 ATS as a favorite over the last 2 seasons and 23-8 ATS in February games over the last 3 seasons.

Play on: Toronto

Jimmy The Moose

Game: Minnesota Wild at Tampa Bay Lightning
Prediction: Tampa Bay Lightning

Reason: Minnesota played last night and lost their 4th in a row. The Wild are 29-60-10 in their last 99 games played with 0 day rest between games. The Wild are 3-8 in their last 11 games vs. a team with a losing home record. Tampa revamped their team yesterday with a big trade. The Lightning are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. Western Conference team's. The Lightning are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning record. Tampa has taken the last 2 meetings with Minnesota. Play on the Lightning

James Patrick Sports

Cavaliers vs. Celtics

The Cavaliers get their biggest test to date featuring their restructured team as they travel to Beantown to play the Celtics. Boston is coming off a West Coast Swing and we feel the Cavs are catching them in a perfect situation in this Eastern Conference show down. Our complimentary selection in Wednesday NBA action is Cleveland Cavaliers.

Dave Cokin

789 William & Mary @ 790 George Mason
Play: George Mason -14

Last home game for the seniors from the amazing Patriots who went to the Final Four two years ago. Emotions figure to be high for these guys, and they also figure to be a little jacked up following Saturday's ugly loss at Ohio in the Bracket Busters. William & Mary was also a Bracket Buster loser, falling at home to Loyola Chicago, and their problems figure to continue here. Sets up as a game with blowout potential, so I'lllay the big number with George Mason.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Mark Lawrence

Texas A&M -9

This game offers everything, and more, of what we are looking for when it comes to isolated a power favorite in a perfect set. For openers the Aggies rank in the nations Top 15 in the two most important categories of all: Defensive Field Goal Percentage (39.1) and Rebound Margin (+8.5). Today they’ll look to avenge an unsightly 15-point blemish off their record from a 68-53 loss at Texas Tech as 5-point favorites earlier this year.

Have to like A&M’s 6-1 ATS mark as a series host, but even better, the Red Raiders’ raunchy 3-20 ATS log in games they lose straight-up when going into same season revengers. With the Aggies off an upset loss and TTRR off a double-digit win, there will be no 12th man needed for A&M here today - just the five on the floor. KEY STAT: Texas A&M is 5-1 ATS at home with same season revenge against Texas Tech. We recommend a 1-unit play on Texas A&M.

Alex Smart

New Orleans Hornets -3.0

Reason: The Phoenix Suns enter into this tilt against their hosts New Orleans Hornets having recorded a succession of failures in this series as is evident by having lost 3 straight meetings ,while failing to cover in 5 straight head to head confrontations. Bottom line: Since the addition of Shaq Oneal to the Suns lineup via a trade, they look a little out of sync. Dealing Shawn Marion to Miami ,in my opinion has effected the Suns ability to run the floor and spread out the ball as easily as they did before, which in in turn, makes them susceptible to a New Orleans team that is not an easy mark on their own home floor, where they have won 14 of their L19 .Considering the current overall form of the Suns and their past problems in this series it will be an easy decision to back Hornets in this spot. Play on New Orleans

JEFFERSONSPORTS

TEXAS A&M-9

2-1 last night on picks and hit 8 out of 10. I have my eye on tex a&m tomorrow. The line is 9 which is really high considering tex tech beat them by 15 at home in Lubbock and the aggies have really struggled lately. They have lost 3 straight. Keep in mind that nebraska shot 60% from the field against them last game. I feel that this might be their breakout game. They got drilled at texas and came home and took nebraska lightly. Now they have that loss to think about as well as huge revenge against texas tech. Tech is great at home but not on the road. I expect a double digit win for tex a&m so i will lay the 9 points. I think vegas made this line high for a reason. I think they have an idea of what will happen.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

James Madison vs. Drexel
Play: James Madison   

Ai Simulator 3* graded play on James Madison – AiS shows a 72% probability that James Madison will lose this game by 4 or fewer points. AiS also shows an 88% probability that Drexel will allow a minimum of 67 points and will have a minimum of 14 turnovers. Note that Drexel is 0-6 ATS when they allow 67 to 74 points in a game this season; 2-9 ATS when they commit 14 to 18 turnovers in a game this season. Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 118-71 ATS for 62.4% since 1997. Play on a road team that is an average offensive team scoring 67-74 PPG and is now facing a poor offensive team scoring <=63 PPG after 15+ games of the current regular season and after a win by 10 points or more. James Madison’s defense is not good as they allow 48% shooting on the season and 55% over their past 5 games. Drexel just does not have the offensive strength nor the matchup advantages to exploit this weakness. Note that Drexel is 3-11 ATS versus poor defensive teams allowing a shooting percentage defense of >=45% over the last 3 seasons.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

20 Dime

HOFSTRA

Take the points with Hofstra tonight when they travel to take on Delaware.

Two teams headed in opposite directions here.

Hofstra has won three straight and four of five, while Delaware has gone 3-6 SU over its last nine.

It’s no coincidence the Pride’s recent streak has happened because they’ve found someone to compliment do-everything guard Antonio Agudio in the scoring department.

Freshman Charles Jenkins has stepped it up, scoring 22, 17 and 28 points in his last three games. His presence means teams can no longer key solely on Agudio, and the Pride have averaged 83 ppg over their last three games.

Delaware has been a money burner at home, going 0-6 ATS in its last six and 1-10 ATS in its last 11.

Hofstra is 6-2 ATS in its last eight road games.
Take the points with Hofstra as they stay within the number over Delaware.

10 Dime

ARKANSAS

Take Arkansas to get it done on the road tonight over Alabama.

Neither team has been especially consistent this year, but the Crimson Tide have been worse than the Razorbacks.

Alabama is just 3-6 ATS as a home chalk due mainly because of sloppy defense and a tendency to chuck it up instead of working for an open look on the offensive end.

Arkansas has hopes of an NCAA tournament bid, so expect them to come out flying tonight. They have an experienced frontcourt that can battle with Alabama’s Richard Hendrix. The backcourt of Gary Ervin and Patrick Beverley should both rebound from a poor outing in their last game against Kentucky when the Hogs fell, 63-58.

If those two are on tonight it will open up the lanes for Sonny Weems, who averages 15.3 ppg and had 26 points against Kentucky.

Take Arkansas as they get it done on the road over Alabama.

5 Dime

UAB

Take Uab as the small road dog tonight over Utep.

The Blazers have stepped it up recently winning four of their last five, with the only setback coming in a controversial 79-78 loss versus top-ranked Memphis.

Uab is a deep, road-tested team that should be able to keep its run going tonight. Forward Lawrence Kinnard and swingman Robert Vaden will be able to take advantage of a Utep defense that allows a league-worst 71 ppg.

The Miners will be in trouble tonight if leading scorer Stefon Jackson continues his struggles from the field. Jackson is hitting only 38 percent of his shots in recent games, which will make it hard for Utep to overcome its defensive shortcomings.

Uab outrebounded Utep by 15 in its eight-point win at UAB Arena on February 9, so I doubt the Miners will get many second-chance opportunities tonight.

Take Uab for the road win over Utep.

HAWKS

Take the Hawks at home tonight minus the points over the Kings.

Former Kings guard Mike Bibby should be acclimated with Joe Johnson by now, giving Atlanta plenty of backcourt punch.

This is Sacramento’s fourth road game in six days, so fatigue could be a factor tonight.

For the Hawks, this is their first home game after a six-game road trip, so they should be eager to put on a show for the partisan crowd.

Atlanta is 10-4-1 ATS in its last 15 home games.

Take the Hawks for the home win and cover.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Michael Cannon

Cleveland at BOSTON -8

Let's go against Cleveland tonight and back the Celtics at home minus the points.

This is a big revenge spot for Boston, as they lost at Cleveland earlier this month without Kevin Garnett and with Paul Pierce battling the flu.

This is the Celtics first home game since the All Star break, following a five-game West Coast trip. They will be pumped up to do battle with LeBron and the revamped Cavs, so expect the intesity to be at an all time high tonight.

Forget about Cleveland's acquisition of center Ben Wallace. He can't run the floor with the athletic Garnett and his presence will be a non-factor in this game.

Boston has too many options on the offensive end for Cleveland to keep this close, and I have a feeling the Celtics will roll against a Cavaliers team that had to play at Milwaukee last night.

Take Boston minus the points as they grab the home win and cover.

2* BOSTON


Bobby Maxwell

Baylor -4 at COLORADO

Don't doubt the Baylor Bears and what they can do on the road. They're laying small chalk in this one and they should come out and just manhandle Colorado in this Big 12 matchup.

The Bears got a huge win Saturday, beating Kansas State 92-86 as a one-point home underdog to snap a four-game losing streak. They opened the season 16-2 and while they've stumbled lately, they are still in position for a spot in the Big Dance.

Baylor is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 on the road and went to Oklahoma back on Feb. 19 and lost 92-91 in OT but got the cash as 5 1/2-point underdogs.

Colorado has lost nine of its last 10 SU and last time the Buffs took the court at home they were drilled by Texas Tech 87-69 as one-point underdogs. And let's remember Texas Tech isn't all that good a team to start with.

The biggest plus for Baylor in this one is its offense. The Bears put up 85.9 points a game on the road while Colorado only musters up 62.7 points a game on the home court. Baylor can run and score with just about anybody in the country. Colorado is just a bad team.

Play the Bears to win this one.

3* BAYLOR

Wm & Mary/George Mason

Take George Mason

Last home game for the seniors from the amazing George Mason entry that went to the Final Four two years ago. Emotions figure to be high for these guys, and they also figure to be a little jacked up following Saturday's ugly loss at Ohio in the Bracket Busters. William & Mary was also a Bracket Buster loser, falling at home to Loyola Chicago, and their problems figure to continue here. Sets up as a game with blowout potential, so I'll lay the big number with George Mason.


Jim Feist

DEN Nuggets/SEA Sonics

Take DEN Nuggets

Seattle has trouble with uptempo teams because their defense is so lousy, allowing 103.6 ppg -- 5th most in the NBA. The last two times they faced an uptempo team, the young Sonics lost by 20 to the Lakers and 19 to Utah. They face an uptempo Denver team in need of a win, after blowing games to Chicago and Detroit. These teams have met once and the Nuggets won by 17. This is the 3rd game in 4 nights for Seattle. A great spot for the visitors. Play the Nuggets!

Miami Hurricanes +9

Miami is getting 9 points today against a team they beat last month. The Canes have won 4 in a row, and in that span have knocked off Duke, Maryland, Gtech and Vtech. Clemson has lost 2 of 4, including a drubbing at the hands of Florida State. Miami needs this win for an NCAA berth. They'll keep it close tonight.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

John Fina

Selection: Texas A&M -9

Reason: Put us down on Texas A&M -9 for our Free College Basketball Selection on Wednesday. The Texas A&M offense and defense is much better then the Texas Tech offense and defense. Texas A&M (at home) is scoring an average of 77.4 points per game, while Texas Tech (on the road) scoring an average of only 63.2 points per game. Texas A&M (at home) is allowing opponents to score an average of only 60.5 points per game, while Texas Tech (on the road) is allowing opponents to score an average of 70.9 points per game. In addition, the home team has had much success in this series. In fact, the home team is 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings between these teams. We will lay the points with the home team that has the much better offense and defense. Take Texas A&M -9!


Tony Mathews

Matchup: Utah vs. TCU

Selection: TCU +4 -110

Explanation: We will side with TCU as they face-off against Utah in Wednesday's College Basketball contest.

TCU has the much better offense. TCU (at home) is scoring an average of 74.4 points per game, while Utah (on the road) is scoring an average of only 65.7 points per game. As you can see, TCU has the much better offense.

TCU has played great basketball at home this season. In fact, TCU is 12-3 when playing at home this season.

To say the least, there is much value with the underdog (TCU) tonight!

Take TCU +4
