UNDER Mavs/Kings
Game: Sacramento Kings vs. Dallas Mavericks Game Time:
Prediction: under Reason: I'm playing on the Mavs and Kings to finish UNDER the number. The Kings and Mavs have played a pair of extremely high-scoring games against each other so far this season. Those results, combined with the fact that the Kings have been playing high-scoring games recently, have helped tonight's over/under line to climb above the 200 mark. I feel that is too high for a game at Dallas. Note that four previous series meetings here since 2006 have all had over/under lines in the 190s or high 180s. The Mavs saw their most recent game here land right on the total with 194 points. That was against a Bulls team that, like the Kings, came in having played a series of high-scoring games. That game marked just the second time since Christmas that the Mavs have played a home game after having played the previous day. The previous time that they were in that situation, 12/27 vs. Cleveland, they managed just 81 points. Overall, the UNDER is 28-19-1 when they've played the second of back to back games over the past three seasons. Including the recent "push," the Mavs have seen the UNDER go 9-4-1 their last 14 games here. The only two teams to reach triple-digits during that stretch were the Lakers and Suns and those two teams score more points on the road (Golden State scores more at home) than any other teams in the league. The Mavs have seen the UNDER go 6-3 when facing a team which allows more than 99 per game and 4-1-1 when listed as a home favorite in the -9.5 to -12 range. The last time that the Mavs played a home game, following a loss in their previous game, they held Portland to just 76 points. While they won't likely keep the Kings that low, I do expect them to play well on the defensive side of the ball once again and for the final score to stay below the generous number. *Western Conference TOM

PACERS
Game: Indiana Pacers vs. Toronto Raptors
Prediction: Indiana Pacers Reason: I'm taking the points with INDIANA. I expect the Pacers to be the hungrier team tonight. While the Raptors know that they'll be returning to the playoffs, the Pacers are currently on the outside looking in. They know that they desperately need to snap their skid and start winning some games. Additional motivation will be provided by the fact that the Pacers have lost all three meetings with the Raptors this season, including Monday's loss at Indiana. The Pacers played the Raptors tough in that game though, losing by only four. In fact, all three of this year's meetings have been decided by 11 points or less and the Raptors have only beaten the Pacers by more than a dozen points in one of the past 20 meetings overall. The Raptors come in on off three straight wins, including an impressive 107-85 victory over the T-Wolves on Wednesday. They're just 1-3 SU/ATS this season after three or more consecutive wins though and a money-burning 34-46-3 ATS in that situation over the past decade. The Raptors are also an ugly 3-11 SU/ATS this season after allowing 85 points or less in their previous game. I expect them to have their hands full this evening. *Best Bet

COLLEGE HOOPS

*BROWN over PRINCETON by 12

*CORNELL over DARTMOUTH by 23
Red over Green, as Cornell seeks to become the first team not known as Princeton or Penn to capture the Ivy title since . . . why . . . Cornell! . . . back in 1988. All the pieces were in place,going into the season, and only question was whether old-time tradition would hold, one more year. First round of the Dance may not be pretty, but for now, undefeated Ivy run will do the fans/alums, just fine.

CORNELL 78-55

*COLUMBIA over HARVARD by 12
The parade of hometeam routs marches on.

COLUMBIA 70-58

*YALE over PENNSYLVANIA by 13
Given that most of their 06-?07 scoring punch returned from last season, Yale ranks as the most mysterious disappointment of this years Ancient Eight. Enough stuff left to take these Quakers,though.

YALE 76-63

NBA

RECOMMENDED
*TORONTO over INDIANA by 9
The Raptors have dominated the Pacers this season with their combination of a strong low post presence and deadly outside shooters. Indiana has proven susceptible to teams featuring that combination a weakness only exacerbated by the frequent absence of Jermaine ONeal from the starting line-up. These two teams match-up again after playing on Monday and you have to expect the hometown Raptors, who are trying to mount a strong second half surge, to take care of business.

TORONTO 103-94



*ATLANTA over NEW YORK by 8
Now that the West Coast road trip is over, the Hawks have to look forward to incorporating Mike Bibby into their line-up. Games like these, against mediocre conference foes, are just the type of games Bibby will give the Hawks a distinct advantage and hopefully an eventual playoff berth. Look for Joe Johnson, in particular, to flourish with Bibby around to help with ball handling and distribution

ATLANTA 96-88


*BOSTON over CHARLOTTE by 14
The Bobcats have the distinction of being one of the first teams to take down the Celtics although the list of Boston conquerors has been growing lately but that sweet memory will prove very distant in the backdrop of tonight?s game. Gerald Wallace just can?t catch a break, most recently suffering a serious concussion when his face met Mikki Moore?s elbow, and the Bobcats lost their best playmaker for the next month. Thats all the edge a vulnerable Celtics team will need to exact some revenge.

BOSTON 91-77


*CLEVELAND over MINNESOTA by 11


BEST BET
*NEW ORLEANS over UTAH by 13
The last time these two teams faced off, the Hornets suffered an embarrassing 22-point loss in Salt Lake City, with Deron Williams clearly outplaying Chris Paul after being snubbed for the All-Star game. The Hornets are sure to remember, and with a national audience watching on ESPN, Chris Paul and his teammates will be motivated to reverse the previous games result.

NEW ORLEANS 114-101


WASHINGTON over *CHICAGO by 6


*DALLAS over SACRAMENTO by 2
The Kings finish a brutal East Coast road trip with a game in Dallas their fifth contest in seven days. For a team that hasn?t experienced much success on the road this season, these type of circumstances do not bode well for tonight?s outcome. Still, the Kings catch a slight break in that the Mavericks spent last night playing the Spurs on national television if Reggie Theus can do a proper job of motivating his players, theres a solid chance of an upset as long as Sacramento has some energy left in their legs.

DALLAS 94-92


*HOUSTON over MEMPHIS by 11


*DENVER over L.A. CLIPPERS by 14
The Nuggets aren?t world-beaters ? any interested observer should have figured that out by now and management will ultimately regret not making a move before the trading deadline, especially in light of the flurry of moves that were made. Still, Allen Iverson and Carmelo Anthony are a lethal scoring duo and the Clippers might as well be an Eastern Conference team.

DENVER 116-102


*GOLDEN STATE over PHILADELPHIA by 16
The Sixers begin a three-game trek out West by visiting the Golden State Warriors, themselves coming off a nice two days of rest to prepare for tonight?s game. The most important thing to realize about this match-up is that regardless of how shoddy Golden States defensemay be, the Sixers just do not have the scorers to keep up in this kind of contest in fact, few teams do, but the Sixers are amazing in their lack of proven scorers and go-to guys.

GOLDEN STATE 117-101


L.A. LAKERS over *PORTLAND by 2
Portland hosts the Lakers after spending two days this week at the Staples Center will they have better luck against Kobe and crew in their friendly home confines Possibly, but it's tough to pick a team that has been sliding so badly against one that has been playing so well.

L.A. LAKERS 96-94


*SEATTLE over MIAMI by 7
It?s possible the Heat could take down the Sonics ? after all, Seattle is one of the few teams that sports a record anywhere near as bad as Miami. But then again, the Sonics play in front of 25 fans at most and face off against the West much more than the Heat ? so perhap the comparison is not apt. Don?t forget that Miami also played last night in L.A.

SEATTLE 96-89

Karl Garrett

New York (+6') at ATLANTA

Call the G-Man crazy, but I am actually going to take the Knicks and the points tonight in the NBA!

New York is among the most disappointing teams in the association, but they are actually making money for their backers recently, as the Knickerbockers are a positive 4-3 straight up their last 7 games, and an even better 5-2-1 against the spread their last 8 times on the hardwood.

Atlanta counters with outright wins in just 2 of their last 10, and they are just 2-3-1 against the spread the last 6 times they have been installed as favorites.

For the season, the Knicks are 15-12-1 against the spread away from Madison Square Garden, and in the series it is New York that boasts a 4-2 mark both straight up, and against the spread the last 6 times these clubs have faced one another.

Hawks may get the outright, but the G-Man doesn't see them covering

2*NEW YORK


Bobby Maxwell

Washington at CHICAGO -5

The Chicago Bulls have won three in a row over the Wizards, five of six and seven of nine dating back to 2005. Tonight will be no different as the Bulls are starting to score points with their new-look roster.

The Bulls have averaged 108.2 points a game in their last five games, more than 12 points above their season average. Chicago is coming off a 113-107 victory in Indiana on Wednesday as one-point underdogs and have gone 7-3 ATS in its last 10 overall.

Washington has lost seven of its last 10 overall and just got clobbered in Houston on Tuesday, 94-69 as 11-point underdogs.

The Bulls won the first meeting between these two back in December, 95-84 as a 5 1/2-point underdog in Washington, and the Wizards are 2-7 ATS in their last nine meetings in Chicago.

Go ahead and lay the chalk and play the Bulls in this one. They win this one by 15.

4* CHICAGO

Utah +3' at NEW ORLEANS

Just as New Orleans has matched up well against Phoenix this season, Utah has matched up well against New Orleans this year.

The Jazz and Hornets have faced each other twice this year, and both times Utah has come away with the easy double-digit win and cover. Utah's series win streak stands at 4 in a row, and 8 of their last 10. Against the spread, the Jazz is 6-3-1 in those 10 meetings.

We say more of the same tonight, as Utah is a smoking 20-5 straight up since the start of the new year.

The Hornets aren't that far behind, as they have gone 18-7 since the start of 2008, but their recent 3-game slide worries us, as they did drop a home game to a banged up Washington team in that span.

Until New Orleans shows they can handle this matchup, we will take any points we can get and side with the Jazz.

Play on Utah.

2* UTAH


Joel Tyson

Utah (+3’) at NEW ORLEANS

Take the points in this NBA match up that should be a battle royale as two of the league’s best collide in New Orleans as the Jazz come calling.

The Jazz enters at 37-21 overall while the Hornets find themselves sitting at 38-18 on the year. Utah has had their way with this Hornet’s team as of late, posting wins in the last four match ups including a 110-88 victory earlier this month.

The Jazz have been victorious seven times out of their last 10 tries overall, while the Hornets have won just once over their last four breaking a three game losing streak last time out against the Suns.

Both teams pretty much look alike on paper as the Jazz average 105.4 ppg overall and the Hornets score at a rate of 100.1 ppg. On defense the Jazz give up an average of 99.8 compared to the Hornet’s 95.0 ppg.

The play is Utah and the points in a close one.


3* JAZZ


Chuck Franklin

Philadelphia at GOLDEN STATE -5'

As well as Philadelphia is playing lately, they are still only a mediocre team from the Eastern Conference with a 26-32 record. They have been averaging 101 points per game during a recent 10-4 run. Tonight they head out west for the first of three Western Conference opponents.

They will see what high-scoring really means playing at Golden State, a team that leads the league in scoring at an average of 110 points per game. The Warriors have scored at least 100 points in each of the last 20 games.

Golden State has won four in a row against the 76ers and they have covered the spread 10 of the last 14 in this series, including 5 of the last six played in Oakland. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS the last five games played against teams with a losing record.

This will be a double-digit win for the home team!

3* GOLDEN STATE

John Fina

Selection: Columbia -8

Today Columbia will be on the road as they take on Harvard. We will lay the points with Columbia! Columbia has the much better defense. Columbia (at home) is allowing opponents to score an average of only 66.6 points per game, while Harvard (on the road) is allowing opponents to score an average of 79.9 points per game. This means the Columbia defense is allowing opponents to score an average of 13.3 points per game less then the Harvard defense. In addition, we already know Columbia can beat Harvard. In fact, Columbia is a perfect 4-0 ATS In their last 4 meetings against Harvard. Lay the points!

Take Columbia -8


TONY WESTON

The Nuggets are only 2-3 SU and ATS their last five games, but it?s not because of a lack of offense. No, in those five games the Nuggets are averaging 117 points per game, about 10 points more than their 107.6-point-per-game season average.

Now they get to take on a Clippers team that?s averaging only 83.6 points per game their last three games where they?re 0-3 SU and ATS.

The last time these two teams met was Nov. 30 when the Nuggets destroyed the Clippers 123-107 in Denver.

The Nuggets, who are 17-12 ATS at home, will be able to take advantage of a poor offensive team in the Clippers, who are only 11-14 ATS on the road this year.
Denver will have an easy go at it against the Clippers.
Take the Nuggets at home.

3* NUGGETS (1* to 5* Scale)


MATT RIVERS

For Friday take the Pacers up North.

These teams just played a few nigths ago at Conseco and it was the Raptors who won by four points and just barely covered the number. I had a comp play there on the Pacers and came up short. I admitted then and still admit that Toronto is the far superior team but I will still try my hand with the underdog in this spot as well.

No doubt Toronto is a solid squad that is once again headed to the playoffs. They are led by a stud in Chris Bosh and Indiana is a reeling franchise who is once again without its best player in Jermaine O'Neal but this number is a bit much and I do not mind some of the parts that the Pacers have to offer. Danny Grander, Mike Dunleavy, Troy Murphy, Jamaal Tinsley and a few others are better than their terrible 22-36 mark indicates and in this revenge spot why not grab double digits plus!

Indiana has dropped three in a row and six of seven and really have no motivation except for revenge so call me a sucker but I will make a small play on them at this gargantuan price!

Philadelphia 76ers vs.Golden State Warriors

Rating: TWO-Star

Selection: PHILADELPHIA 76ERS +6

Analysis

The Warriors have not been any help to their backers when playing at Oracle Arena where they are allowing an NBA worst 108 points per game which has translated into a 6-18 ATS record for Golden State when laying chalk at home. If they were hoping for an easy ?W? with the 76ers coming to town they will be in for a rude awakening as this Philly team has intensified their defensive effort and now only allow 91 points per game over their last 15 contests. That is a 6 point per game improvement on the defensive side of the ball. The 76ers improved play on defense has also helped in the ticket window for Philly backers as they are on an 11-2-1 ATS run their last 14 games. Golden State also qualifies in a negative situation that says to Play Against teams coming in off two ATS losses at home now playing a non-conference opponent with a line range of 6 to 8 points these teams are 23-45 ATS. The Warriors are also 1-9 ATS off a SU win and an ATS loss while going under at home in their last game. With Golden State struggling and Philly much improved we will take the points here as the 76ers get the ATS win and it would not surprise this bureau if they got the straight up win as well.

Priceless Picks

1 Unit on Kings/Mavs OVER 202

Dallas scores much better at home, averaging 103.5 ppg.  Sac is allowing 104.2 ppg.  Dallas will be playing back-to-back, but defense usually suffers in those situations and not offense.  All 4 games in Dallas in this matchup the past 3 seasons have gone OVER the number and 6 of the last 8 games period have gone OVER.  The Kings are 21-6 OVER against Southwest division opponents over the last 2 seasons and 31-19 OVER in the second half of the season over the last 2 seasons.  Take the OVER tonight.

1 Unit on Golden State Warriors -5

The 76ers struggle against up-tempo teams and that's really all you need to know here.  Philly is 7-20 ATS versus up-tempo teams averaging 83 or more shots/game over the last 3 seasons.  Golden State has won 4 straight games against the Sixers and is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 home games with Philly.  The Warriors are a very good home team at 19-10 on the season while the 76ers have struggled on the road at just 10-18.  Philly is only 9-22 ATS in a road game where the total is greater than or equal to 200 over the last 3 seasons.  The 76ers can't sustain a high level of play for an entire game against up-tempo teams.  Lay the points tonight.

5 Unit Black Magic NBA Dog of the Week on Sacramento Kings +9

The Kings catch the Dallas Mavericks in a great spot tonight. Dallas just played a physical, emotional game against the San Antonio Spurs last night where they lost in the final seconds by just 3 points. It will be extremely tough for the Mavs to recover from this devastating loss in just 24 hours time. The Sacramento Kings will come into this game the more hungry team after having a days’ rest to think about the recent 3-game skid they have been on. Sacramento will bounce back tonight in a big way and pull off the upset of a shaken up Mavs’ team. Sacramento is 12-2 ATS after having lost 3 of their last 4 games this season. Dallas is 2-12 ATS in home games off a close loss by 3 points or less to a division rival since 1996. History has been great for the Kings in the spot, but terrible for the Mavs following a tough loss. We will bet along with history and cash in with the Kings as the underdog.

3 Unit Sharp Play on Golden State Warriors -5

The Warriors are showing great value tonight as just a 5-point home favorite against the 76ers. Philly has been a sleeper this season at home, but their 10-18 road record is little to be desired for 76ers’ backers. The Warriors are 19-10 at home this season and have won their last two home meetings with the 76ers by 19 and 9 points each. The Warriors have won 4 straight against the 76ers overall. Philly doesn’t match-up well with the high-octane style of offense the Warriors run. They are a slow-down team that can’t run with the Warriors. Philly is 9-22 ATS in a road game where the total is greater than or equal to 200 over the last 3 seasons. The odds makers are predicting a shootout and Philly can’t hang in this style of game. Cash in with Golden State as the favorite.

NCAA Basketball

3 Unit Sharp Play on Iona +7

Iona is a sleeper tonight as the underdog to a Marist team playing without their best player. Marist has been missing Louie McCroskey dearly as of late. McCroskey was averaging 12.4 points and 5.6 rebounds before going down with an ankle injury. Marist has now lost 6 of their last 7 games overall and still find themselves a 7-point favorite here. Iona lost to Marist earlier this season and that is the reason they are showing such great value here. Iona is 10-2 ATS in road games revenging a home loss vs opponent over the last 3 seasons. Iona is 8-1 ATS in road games revenging a loss vs opponent over the last 2 seasons. Cash in with Iona as the underdog.
