Friday Service Plays

Re: Friday Service Plays

Big Al

At 10:35 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Golden State Warriors plus the points over the Phoenix Suns. Phoenix checks into this game off back to back SU/ATS wins (over the Spurs and Grizzlies), but the Suns are a horrid 15-36 off two ATS wins, dating back to January 2006. And if Phoenix is matched up against a foe off a straight-up win, then our 15-36 stat moves to an even worse 4-21 ATS. With GSW in off a 117-106 victory last night, we'll play on the Warriors to pull the upset.

Tennessee -12.0

Tennessee (28-3) enters into this contest against South Carolina(13-7) head and shoulders above their competition, already beating them this season by a lopsided 89-56 count, and than subsequently going 12-1 since than. The Volunteers have a tremendous team, and have their best chance at a conference championship in 30 years , and will come out here gunning behind the SECs top offense (82.5 PPG) for conclusive win , as they leave nothing to chance. Tennessee Vols

Colorado @ Oklahoma
PICK: Oklahoma

REASON FOR PICK: NCAAB Game #540 - 1* (regular play) Oklahoma Sooners (-) vs Colorado @ 3:00 ET - The Buffaloes are not known for their offense as that was one of their key concerns coming into this season. The question was how Colorado was going to be able to generate enough on the offensive end to remain competitive in a talented Big Twelve. As it turns out the concerns about the Buffaloes were warranted and this was especially true away from home. When Colorado wasn't playing in Boulder they had a number of very ugly performances. So that brings us the point of how did the Buffs manage to defeat Baylor yesterday? The answers to that lead us to a very solid play today.

The Bears simply underestimated the Buffaloes yesterday and they paid for it. The other key was that Colorado enjoyed some surprising offensive success yesterday. That is not likely to be repeated. It's a wake-up call that Oklahoma is now well aware of. In other words, look for the Sooners to defend the Buffs with much more intensity than Baylor did yesterday. Additionally, Oklahoma will take advantage of a Colorado team that had to go to double overtime to notch that win yesterday. This will result in some tired legs for the Buffs showing up at least by the second half of this afternoon's game. The Sooners may not have impressed with their full season performance but note how well they play when their health is intact. This shows just how capable this team is and they have a talented frontcourt along with some dangerous scorers on the perimeter. The Buffs, unlike yesterday, simply won't be able to keep up and this one turns into a rout. Play Oklahoma minus the points as a regular selection.

50 DIMER - USC TROJANS....20 DIMER - ST. JOE'S HAWKS...10 DIMERS - PITT PANTHERS, & LA LAKERS

50 DIMER - USC TROJANS



Tim Floyd's team is peaking right now, as they closed the regular season with wins in 5 of their last 6, including a dominating home court victory over Top 10 Stanford.



I expect the Trojans to stay close to the Bruins in this cross-city rivalry tonight, as USC has already handed the Uclans 1 of their 3 losses this year, 72-63 - and in Westwood no less!



The schools did split the season series this year, as UCLA was able to stop a 4-game against the spread slide with the win in the most recent meeting back on February 17th.



Right now, the USC youngsters are playing above their heads, and I don't expect that to stop in this spot tonight. The Bruins may well win this game, but not by this impost.



Take the points!



20 DIMER - ST. JOSEPH'S HAWKS



St. Joe's home finale win over Xavier has seemed to give this team a boost, as the Hawks have ripped through the first two rounds of this tournament, and now must face the X-Men once again here in the semis. If Joey's can get by, I would say the chances of going to the Big Dance are 100%, so expect Martelli's crew to bring their A-game tonight.



Playing in nearby Atlantic City will also help, as the crowd should definitely be in the Hawks corner.



St. Joe's has covered the last 4 series meetings, all in the underdog role, and the Musketeers are just 6-8 against the spread on the road this year.



Have to take the points in this one.



10 DIMER - PITTSBURGH PANTHERS



Pitt really showed me something with yesterday's overtime win over Louisville, and I like them to make it to the finals of the Big East tournament once again this season with the win over Marquette.



The Golden Eagles played a strange game against the Irish yesterday, as they trailed by as many as 10, but did come off the deck to get the outright win as the small dog.



No such luck tonight, as Pittsburgh well remembers that Friday night on February 15th when they went into Wisconsin, and were drilled 72-54 as the 5-point dog. Last season in this very tourney, Pittsburgh won a 10-point decision over Marquette, and as Yogi Berra once said, tonight is "deja vu, all over again!"



The Panthers are in that New York city groove, and it is going to lead to tomorrow night's final.



Pitt is it!



10 DIMER - LA LAKERS



Hard to knock the Hornets, as New Orleans is as hot as any team out West, and they have won and covered 6 of their last 8. Still, the G-Man prefers Kobe and his band of merry-men in this one, as the Lakers are on a 17-3 straight up run, and this game is priced at a number they should have no trouble getting on top of.



These teams have split a pair of games this season, with the visitor winning and covering in both.



On the road, the Lake Show is on a 19-7-1 run their last 27, and while I am sure they are itching to get to Sunday's road game at Houston, they cannot afford to be looking ahead with the Hornets only a game behind in the loss column.



Think of this one as an early "playoff" type of a game. My money is on the Lakers as they continue to be "road warriors".

Friday's Plays...

15 Dime –



NORTH CAROLINA



Take the Tarheels minus the big number this afternoon over Florida State.



North Carolina is poised to make a run in the ACC tournament. Coach Roy Williams has successfully worked point guard Ty Lawson back into the lineup gradually, and the last few games have allowed him to get his legs back under him.



If Lawson is able to play more than the 23 minutes he played against Duke in their last game, North Carolina should easily be able to cover this number.



While Lawson was out of the lineup with his ankle injury, it allowed players like Marcus Ginyard and Danny Green to step up in his absence.



Of course, it also allowed Tyler Hansbrough to elevate his game to an even higher level.



Now that all the pieces are back in the puzzle, this Tarheel team is once again the class of the ACC.



Florida State relies too much on its perimeter game for them to stay close today. When they miss, it allows the Tarheels a chance to run and score easy buckets with their fast break offense.



Take North Carolina minus the big number as they grab the win and cover.



5 Dime –



PURDUE



Take Purdue minus the points over Illinois tonight in the Big Ten tournament.



I really like the way Purdue is playing right now. They are a team that never gets rattled, no matter how the game is going.



It’s this trait that will carry them past Illinois tonight.



Purdue is a smart team that executes its offense with efficiency. They have gone 8-2 SU in their last 10 games (8-1-1 ATS).



This medium number should be no problem for them against an Illinois team that’s failed to cover five of its last seven games. They narrowly escaped with a victory over an inferior Penn State team yesterday, and that does not bode well for them tonight.



Take Purdue as they grab the cash with the win and cover.



ST. JOE’S



Take the points with St. Joe’s tonight when they take on rival Xavier in the A-10 Tournament.



These two teams split their season series with St. Joe’s grabbing the cash in both games.



Xavier has the experience edge, but St. Joe’s has been up to the challenge in each meeting.



St. Joe’s has been one of the better teams against the spread in the A-10, going 18-11 this year.



Xavier, on the other hand, may be the class of the conference but has failed to cover the number in three of its last four games.



St. Joe’s has cruised to wins over Fordham and Richland in the first two rounds, winning by a combined 32 points.



You can bet they will be focused and ready for the task on hand tonight.



Take the points with St. Joe’s as they battle Xavier down to the wire and grab the cash.



WEST VIRGINIA



Take the points with West Virginia tonight when they take on Georgetown.



I made the mistake of going against the Mountaineers with Connecticut yesterday, and I’m not about to do it again tonight.



That’s because Joe Alexander is a man possessed right now, and I don’t think there’s a player in the conference that can shut him down the way he’s playing right now.



Alexander is averaging a whopping 29.8 ppg over his last five games, and not even the vaunted Hoyas defense can slow him down.



Georgetown benefited from an uncharacteristically hot game from beyond the arc in its win over Villanova yesterday, but I don’t see them lighting it up again like that tonight.



Center Roy Hibbert failed to score in Georgetown’s 19-point win yesterday, which is absolutely embarrassing. The guy is 7-2 and he takes two shots from the field.



If Georgetown relies on its perimeter game again tonight, they’ll be lucky to win this game, let alone cover.



Take West Virginia as Alexander keeps shooting lights out and the Mountaineers stay within the number.

Larry Ness |

Michigan St. -4.0 vs Ohio St.

Ohio State lost in last year's championship game to Florida but all knew it would be tough going for Thad Matta's team this year after losing star freshman Oden (15.7-9.6), Conley (11.3-6.1 APG) and Cook (9.8-4.3), plus senior Ron Lewis (12.7). As for Michigan State, all five starters were back from Tom Izzo's 23-win team of last season, including guard Drew Neitzel (18.1-4.3 APG), who appeared on many preseason All-American teams. Michigan State was expected to be at the minimum, a top-10 team. OSU has struggled most of the year but has kept its at-large hopes alive by beating Purdue and this Mich St team in its final two home games of the regular season, entering this game at 19-12 (10-8 in the Big 10). As for MSU, the Spartans were rolling at the end of January at 19-2 and owned a top-10 ranking but lost road games at ranked teams like Purdue, Indiana and Wisconsin down the stretch, plus threw in a bad road loss at Penn St, before falling apart in the second half at Columbus in that loss to the Buckeyes. Neitzel (13.4-2.5-4.2) did not have an All-American season but joined by Lucas (9.8-3.9 APG), Allen (6.0). Summers (5.2) and Walton (3.7-4.4 APG), the Spartans have a good and very deep backcourt. The 6-7 Morgan (15.0-6.3) is the team's best player plus the two 6-10 guys, Suton (8.7-8.2) and Naymick (4.3-4.0), are solid. The 6-8 Gray (5.0-4.2) adds depth in the frontcourt. Getting back to the Buckeyes, four vets were joined by a new freshman class, which couldn't possibly match up with LY's group. Three seniors, guard Butler (14.6-3.2-6.), the 6-8 Hunter (9.6-6.2) and the 6-9 Terwilliger (3.2-2.5) plus 6-5 soph Lighty (8.6-3.7-2.3) are the veterans of note. The 7-0 Koufus (13.7-6.8) plus two 6-6 players, Turner (8.2-4.2-2,5) and Diebler (6.3-2.4), are the stars of the freshman class. I'm not even remotely sold on this group of Buckeyes. Their RPI top-50 record is still very suspect and the team's best non-conference wins came over Syracuse at Madison Square Garden and against Florida (at home), both of whom were embarrassed in their first conference tourney games and deserve to be left out come Selection Sunday. OSU also lost to Butler, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas A&M! Mich St lost a close one in Kansas City to UCLA, beat an athletic Texas team in the Palace of Auburn Hills and made a nice comeback in Salt Lake City to beat BYU. The Spartans never lost at home this year and while they had two road hiccups in the Big 10 (at Iowa and Penn St), the team's other losses were excusable. Izzo's been an excellent tournament coach for over a decade now and getting this quick rematch with Ohio State, should be all the motivation his team needs. I believe Koufus is very overrated and after today's game, Ohio State (like LY's title game opponent Florida) will find itself "sweating out" Sunday's at-large announcements. Expect MSU to win handily. 24* on Michigan State.

Re: Friday Service Plays

Ted Sevransky

TITLE: Friday Night Arena Parlay

REASON FOR PICK: Utah is the ultimate ‘Over’ team in the AFL this year, just like they were last year when they finished in the Top 5 in scoring and bottom five in points allowed. The Blaze defense has been horrible this year, giving up 66 and 63 points in their first two games, while allowing 18 touchdowns on 23 meaningful drives against them. But Utah’s offense looks just as potent as it did a year ago. Blaze quarterback Joe Germaine ranks among the league leaders in passing yards, completion percentage and touchdowns. Aaron Boone, Huey Whittaker and JJ McKelvey have helped the Blaze manage despite the loss of top notch receiver Siaha Burley in the offseason. Even the new kicker, Steve Azar, was perfect last week, nailing all seven of his extra point attempts.

Orlando, too, has all the makings of a serious ‘Over’ machine in 2008. Through two games, the Predators defense has allowed 16 touchdowns on 19 meaningful drives. They have zero interceptions, zero passes defenced and only one sack, suffering from terrible play both in the secondary and on the line of scrimmage. But the Orlando offense is clicking right now. QB Shane Stafford leads the league in passing yardage and completions. And the Predators are in desperation mode in their first home game following an 0-2 start. In fact, playoff teams from last year are 0-2 and can be expected to pull out all the stops with their offensive gameplan here. Expect a wild shootout between two teams in ‘must win’ situations, neither of whom can rely on their defense to get stops.

Take the Over. Current Line 117.5. Worth playing up to 121.

Bonus Side Opinion: Orlando is in no position to be laying a touchdown to anybody in the league right now. Head coach Jay Gruden seems to be on the verge of losing his team, making numerous bonehead clock management decisions and costing his team the game last week with an ill-advised two point conversion try at the end of regulation when an extra point would have sent the game into overtime. Utah is not going to stop scoring here, leaving the backdoor wide open late, if necessary. Bonus Side Opinion Take Utah. Current Line +5,worth playing down to +3.

Vegas Experts

Clippers opened a four-game East Coast swing Wednesday night with a 22-pt. loss in Orlando. They come here, play Washington Saturday night and finish in Minnesota Monday. The road has not been kind to the Clipps who are 8-20 S/U and 12-16 ATS away from Staples Center. At the end of a long, injury-plagued season don't expect them to put up much resistance in this one. Atlanta takes a big class drop after playing at Orlando Monday and hosting Houston Wednesday. It got two wins last year versus the Clipps, beating them here 86-74 and in L.A. 96-93. Good Luck - Robert Ross

Play on: Atlanta

Brad Diamond Sports
Fan Appreciation NBA Game of the Week
Play on: 10* Houston (512)over Charlotte
How can you avoid the red hot Rockets who are on a consistent swing through the NBA regular season, while playing more effective offensive basketball without Yao in the lineup. Although the Rockets have won 5 straight in the series, they struggled in their last bout with the Bobbies, so I doubt you’ll see a letdown by Houston. The Rockets are a solid 11-1 ATS playing with only a day of rest and 13-3 ATS as a home chalk. Tough double digit number to beat, but Charlotte is a major liability defensively.


Top College Tourney Selection
BRAD DIAMOND SPORTS
Play on: 20* Ohio State (531) plus Michigan State @ 2:30 PM EST
Tough call in Big-10, but can’t help but go against “Sparty” in an obvious win situation. Realize this is a major revenge game for the Spartans off their 63-54 loss last week to Ohio State, but the underdog has covered 5 of 6 in this series. Plus, Michigan State is a horrid 6-14-1 ATS in conference. Ohio State has covered 4 of the last 5 in this series and will play with great emotion throughout. Take the points!

Re: Friday Service Plays

BEN BURNS

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

UNDER Florida State / UNC
Game: Florida State vs. North Carolina
Prediction: under Reason: I'm playing on Florida State and UNC to finish UNDER the number. We know that the Tar Heels are going to put up points. However, this is an awfully big number and I feel that the value lies with the UNDER. The Tar Heels were held to "only" 76 points last time out, in a game that fell well below the number. They've seen the UNDER go 2-1 in neutral court games this season and this afternoon they'll take on a Seminoles' squad which allowed a mere 60 points to Wake Forest yesterday. That game stayed below the UNDER which brought the UNDER to 4-2 their past six games. These teams finished 'over' the total at North Carolina 10 days ago. However, the UNDER remains a profitable 7-3 the last 10 times that the Seminoles were underdogs of greater than eight points. Its also worth noting that the earlier meeting this season stayed below the total, as did both meetings in 2007. Including yesterday's result, the Seminoles have now seen the UNDER go 6-2 their last eight neutral court games and 14-7 their last 21 neutral court games, which had a posted over/under line. Additionally, they've seen the UNDER go 15-6 the last 21 times that they faced an opponent which had defeated them on the road in the preivous meeting. This will mark the third time Seminoles have played two games in two days this season. The previous two times both resulted in low-scoring games (69-66 loss and 68-67 loss) which stayed below the number. Look for this afternoon's final combined score to be lower-scoring than expected once again. *Annihilator

INDIANA
Game: Minnesota vs. Indiana
Prediction: Indiana Reason: I'm laying the points with INDIANA. I'd like the Hoosiers in this matchup even if this was on a neutral court. Actually, technically tonight's game will be played on a neutral court. However, that neutral court just happens to be Conseco Fieldhouse, home of the Pacers and some 50 miles away from the Indiana campus. Obviously, there will be a heavy pro Indiana crowd. The Hoosiers have fallen out of favor with the betting public somewhat since the Kelvin Sampson 'situation' and due to the fact that they closed out the season by losing two of three games. Make no mistake though, this is an extremely tough team, one which is fully capable of winning this tournament. Indeed, Indiana led the Big Ten in scoring (76.1), free throw percentage (76.8), rebounding (37.9) and defensive rebounding (26.4) during the regular season. The Hoosiers boast a pair of all-conference first-team selections in Big Ten player of the year D.J. White and freshman of the year Eric Gordon. Those two combine for nearly 40 points per game while Armon Bassett and Jordan Crawford give them another pair of double-digit scorers. The Hoosiers don't lack confidence either. As Bassett had to say: "We think we can win the Big Ten (tournament) championship, still. Through all the ups and down we have been through we still think we should be one of the favorites to be playing on Sunday and win that thing." Its been a fairly impressive season for the Gophers as they've done well in the first year under Tubby Smith. That being said, they had to rally to beat lowly Northwestern yesterday and now face a rested, motivated and powerful Indiana team in a hostile environment. Its also worth noting that the Gophers could be without 6-foot-9 senior Spencer Tollackson after he suffered an ankle injury in the first half of yesterday's game. Even if he plays, Tollackson, who has been dealing with various nagging injuries for some time, can't be expected to be at 100%. That spells trouble as the Gophers could use all the big bodies they can get against the likes of White and co. Including the unlikely uspet loss at Penn State to close out the season, the Hoosiers have lost four times since January 31. They responded to each of the previous three losses by recording a double-digit victory in their next game. That includes an 80-61 victory over Michigan State (after losing to Wisconsin) and a 69-55 win over these same Gophers, after losing at Michigan State. Look for the Hooisers to "bounce back" once again, recording a convincing victory and advancing to an even big showdown in the next round. *Big 10 Tourny GOY
