Saturday Service Plays

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Big Al

At 10:30 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Memphis Grizzlies plus the points over Golden State as Memphis falls into a 33-9 ATS system of mine which plays on certain underdogs of more than 10 points, which are off 3 SU/ATS losses, and playing with at least 2 days of rest. Memphis' best player, Rudy Gay, has been upgraded to 'probable' for tonight's game, which is key, as Memphis would be hard-pressed to stay competitive without Mr. Gay in the line-up. Take the points.

1 Unit on Portland Trail Blazers -9.5

We have a 4-26 road team against a 22-9 home team here and we won't hesitate to take the home squad.  After a rough stretch, the Blazers have started to play some hoops again and the result is a 7-3 ATS record their last 10 games.  Portland is 4-1 SU and ATS versus the T-Wolves at home the past 3 seasons and 9-2 ATS in all games the past 3 seasons.  Minnesota is 9-20 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record in the 2nd half of the season over the last 2 seasons and 15-28 ATS vs. division opponents over the last 3 seasons.  The Blazers have won all 3 meetings this season, including a double digit victory at home.  Lay the points here fellas.

WINNING POINTS

NBA

*Washington over Los Angeles Clippers by 7
If there's anything worse than a bad Clippers team, it's a Clippers squad playing their fourth road game in six days. Chris Kaman has been the Clippers best player and he's wearing down. WASHINGTON 98-91.


***BEST BET
*Philadelphia over San Antonio by 4
Overlook the 76ers and you'll be in trouble. Philadelphia had covered its last 10 home contests through March 9. Despite this, San Antonio very well could overlook the 76ers. The Spurs might even be excused for this since they are off consecutive road contests against New Orleans and Detroit and have a marquee home matchup on Monday against Boston. PHILADELPHIA 100-96.


*Orlando over Indiana by 9
The Pacers entered the second week of this month having allowed at least 102 points
in nine straight games. The Magic are the top scoring team in the Eastern Conference,averaging more than 104 points per contest. ORLANDO 113-104.



***BEST BET
*New Jersey over Utah by 7
Chemistry is better with the Nets these days. There's more defensive intensity. Richard Jefferson and Vince Carter remain capable of explosive performances. The Jazz are going to be one tired team, playing for the fourth time in five days and off a road game last night against the Celtics. Andrei Kirilenko (check status) missed time last week dealing with a sore hip. NEW JERSEY 101-94.


Boston over *Milwaukee by 8
The Celtics handled the Bucks easily in mid-December, winning by 22 at home
despite not having Ray Allen. Milwaukee remains very inconsistent, while the Celtics
have fortified their bench with the additions of veterans Sam Cassell and P.J. Brown.
Bucks rookie Yi Jianlian has hit the first-year wall. BOSTON 104-96.


*Portland over Minnesota by 4
This could be a good under spot. Minnesota ranked last in offense, while the Trail
Blazers have gone below the total in 19 of their first 31 home games. Portland may be distracted, returning home following a five-game road swing. PORTLAND 89-85.


*Phoenix over Sacramento by 7
It?s hard to trust any team that relies so much on Ron Artest as the Kings do. But in
their first 13 games since Shaquille O?Neal joined the lineup, the Suns were 6-7 and
surrendering an average of 111.4 points per game. Grant Hill hasn't looked good since returning from an appendectomy. PHOENIX 118-111.


*Golden State over Memphis by 10
The Grizzlies scoring should pick up with Mike Miller back from injury. Miller's
return makes the Grizzlies defense even more of a liability, but the Warriors had failed to cover 20 of their first 31 home contests. GOLDEN STATE 120-110.

THE SPORTS REPORTER

*WASHINGTON over L.A. CLIPPERS by 9
L.A.?s ugly stepchild finishes a road back-to-back in our nation's capital  despite it all, the Wizards have persevered and done fairly well at home. It won?t be difficult for them to take down a tired and under-motivated Clippers squad, with or without Gilbert Arenas and Caron Butler. WASHINGTON 96-87


BEST BET TOTAL UNDER
SAN ANTONIO over *PHILADELPHIA by 6
The Sixers have been doing a great job of winning games lately and if they weren?t themselves finishing a back-to-back, they'd be in great position to steal a game from the Spurs. Unfortunately for them, both these teams are finishing five-game weeks nullifying any potential advantage they would have on each other. This should ensure that San Antonio pulls out the road win, but don't expect too many points in the process from two very weary teams. SAN ANTONIO 87-81 *ORLANDO over INDIANA by 14


RECOMMENDED
*NEW JERSEY over UTAH by 8
Sure, the Nets are basically falling apart. The spent the first week of March getting plastered by the competition and were called by their former franchise player for not knowing what direction the team is going ? something about lacking an identity.Well, it?s nice of Jason Kidd to deflect the responsibility for establishing a team?s identity, but he does kind of have a point. After all, Vince Carter isn't capable of much in the leadership department. That being said, the Nets have had two full days of practice and a sparse schedule this week to try and get their act together while the Jazz are concluding a four-game / five day Eastern Conference road trip, finishing a back-to-back in the swamplands of New Jersey after dealing with the Celtics last night. Can you say letdown game? NEW JERSEY 96-88


BOSTON over *MILWAUKEE by 1
The Celtics embark on a four-game road trip against Western Conference contenders once they dispatch of the Bucks. Milwaukee doesn?t do much winning nowadays, but there?s reason to believe they'll keep it close tonight. Boston is playing their fourth game of the week,and hosted Utah in a tough game last night. In contrast, the Bucks haven't played since Wednesday and should be geeked about the opportunity to compete against the best team in the East. The Celtics have four tough games coming up and are liable to mail it in tonight as bad as the Bucks have been, it?s definitely within their ability to cover the spread.BOSTON 96-95


*PORTLAND over MINNESOTA by 10
*PHOENIX over SACRAMENTO by 12


*GOLDEN STATE over MEMPHIS by 9
As our intrepid editor pointed out, the Warriors haven?t done very well as a home favorite.Well, that should be obvious the Warriors don't exactly play the type of basketball that isconducive towards covering big spreads, making them a much better road play than home.After all, how do are you supposed to step on the throats of your opponents if you never play defense GOLDEN STATE 117-108

Chip Chirimbes' A Play NBA Guaranteed Megabucks- Jazz at Nets

5* Megabucks- Nets +3.5 over Jazz

The Nets began their annual Thanksgiving road trip losing a 102-75 clunker to the Jazz in Utah where Deron Williams scored 20 points and handed out six assists while Carlos Boozer scored 17. Richard Jefferson scored 22 for the Nets which was nowhere near enough. That game came on the heels of Jason Kidd's pointed "glass jaw" speech about the Nets. Kidd is gone, but the glass jaw theory survives.The Nets have had success at home against the Jazz over the years -- they are 17-16 all time in New Jersey against Utah, compared to 7-27 on the road.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

BEN BURNS

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

ARKANSAS
Game: Arkansas vs. Tennessee
Prediction: Arkansas Reason: I'm taking the points with ARKANSAS. The Razorbacks will have payback on their minds as they got blown out at Knoxville last month. A closer look shows that game was close at halftime, as the Razorbacks trailed by only four points. They're coming off a dominating win over Vanderbilt yesterday, which saw them outscore the Commodores by a 50-20 margin in the paint while outrebounding them by a whopping 45-24 count. Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings had the following to say: "We gave them way too many second chances, third chances and fourth chances. That was the difference. They pounded us on the boards. It was a total breakdown on our part." I expect the Hogs to display that type of toughness today, giving the Vols a battle the entire way, rather than just for a half. With complete NCAA security (they know they're going "dancing") and not really expected to win today, the Hogs can come in loose. After failing to cover yesterday, the Vols are now just 6-12 ATS in neutral court games the past three seasons. Looking back further and we find them at an ugly 14-32 ATS in neutral court games over the past decade. I expect them to have their hands-full as the revenge-minded Razorbacks take this game down to the wire with an excellent shot at the upset. *Main Event

OVER Memphis/Tulsa
Game: Tulsa vs. Memphis
Prediction: over Reason: I'm playing on Memphis and Tulsa to finish OVER the number. The Tigers have been terrific defensively lately and have held four straight opponents to less than 60 points. However, they'd previously allowed five straight opponents to score at least 66 points, with those opponents averaging 69.8. One of those teams was Tulsa - the Golden Hurricane managed 67 points in a 82-67 loss. That game had an over/under line of 136.5 but finished 'over' by double-digits. Despite that result, due to this being a tournament, due to recent results and due to the fact that both teams played yesterday, this afternoon's number is currently several points lower. I feel that gives us solid value with the OVER. The Tigers have scored 69 or more points in eight of their last nine games, averaging better than 78 during that stretch. That includes a 94-point outburst vs. UAB in their regular season finale. With this being the championship, they'll be looking to make a similar statement this afternoon. Catching Tulsa off back to back overtime games, I expect them to really push the pace here. Look for the Tigers to put up big offensive numbers and for the final combined score to be higher than expected. *Annihilator

NBA

NETS
Game: Utah Jazz vs. New Jersey Nets
Prediction: New Jersey Nets Reason: I'm taking the points with NEW JERSEY. I feel that the situation strongly favors the Nets here. New Jersey snapped a losing streak with a solid win over Cleveland on Wednesday. That win gave them renewed confidence that they can still beat the league's top teams, even without Kidd in the lineup. More importantly, it kept them in the thick of the playoff race. They're currently tied for the eighth spot, making every game critical. They haven't played since the win over the Cavs, meaning they'll be fresh tonight. Not that they should need any additional motivation but they'll also be playing with "revenge," as the Jazz beat up on them when the teams met at Utah earlier. Unlike their hosts, the Jazz are anything but fresh. They're in a "letdown" spot after upsetting the Celtics yesterday and they're now playing in their fourth different city in the past five days. Note that the Jazz are just 3-7 ATS the last 10 times that they played a road game after having played the previous day. The Jazz are also 3-8 SU/ATS the last 11 times that they played a road game with an over/under line ranging from 200 to 204.5. Additionally, they're in one of their worst roles here, as we find them at just 1-6 SU/ATS this season as road favorites in the -3.5 to -6 range. The Nets have won six of their last eight home games. They're also a perfect 4-0 SU/ATS the last four times that they were a host in this series. Look for them to be both the fresher and hungrier team, as they continue their plaoff push and homecourt success in this series. *Best Bet

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Larry Ness legend play Georgetown

REASON FOR PICK: (The Hoyas are a four-point favorite). Hats of to Pitt and its head coach Jamie Dixon, who has again done a brilliant job. In the team's 65-64 OT win over Duke (Dec 20), the Panthers lost senior swingman Mike Cook (10.4) to a season-ending injury and then the very next game, PG Fields (11.1-3.8-5.4) went down with what was thought to be a season-ending injury as well. However, Fields returned after missing 12 games. In his absence, senior guards Benjamin (9.4) and Ramon (8.4-3.8 APG) played well, while 6-6 junior forward Young (18.3-6.4) and bruising 6-7 freshman Blair (11.8-9.1) had terrific seasons. Adding depth all year have been 6-6 freshman Brown (6.3-3.1) and 6-8 junior Biggs (5.6-4.1). Fields took awhile to regain his form but over his last five games, has averaged 12.4 PPG. Through it all, Pitt finds itself in the Big East title game, at 25-9 on the season. That's the "feel good" part of this story. Now to the reality. Awaiting the Panthers in the championship game is Georgetown. The Hoyas were a Final 4 team last year and returned all starters save Jeff Green (Big East P-)-Y!). It's a very talented group, led by the 7-2 Hibbert (13.3-6.5). Joining him in the starting lineup are the 6-8 Summers (11.4-5.4) plus guards Wallace (10.6), Sapp (9.8-4.2-3.3) and Freeman (9.1-3.1). Freeman is a freshman, while the other four players are all returning starters. Also around from LY's team is the 6-8 Ewing, who added 6.1 PPG and 4.3 RPG. Wright (5.7-2.5-2.4) is a freshman guard who has made solid contributions, while the 6-9 Macklin (3.4-2.1) and guard Rivers (2.7-2.4), are two sophs who are getting a little more time this year, than they got on LY's Final 4 team. Now to the game. Pitt is playing its FOURTH game in four days and the last two days has had to get past No. 13 Louisville (in OT) and No. 25 Marquette. Meanwhile, Georgetown has taken on just disappointing Villanova (won 82-63) and still-learning West Va (won 72.55). I've said many times (as have others), that Georgetown is a devastating defensive team and one of the nations' most offensively efficient teams as well. The numbers in the Big East tourney bear that out. The Hoyas have held their first two opponents to just 37.0 percent from the floor, while making 54.1 percent of their shots. While Hibbert was held scoreless vs 'Nova, Summers had 19 points plus guards Wallace and Sapp combined for 43! Last night, Hibbert bounced back with 25 points and 13 rebounds. As for Pitt, Young (as he as all season) has led the way, averaging 21.3-7.3 in Pitt's three wins. However, Fields, while averaging 11.3 PPG, has made just 9-of-33 shots (27.3). Now how's this for some deja vu? These teams met in LY's Big East final also, with Pitt coming off wins over Marquette and Louisville (sound familiar?). The Hoyas routed the Panthers in that game, winning 65-42, shooting 52.3 percent and holding Pitt to 26.2 percent. The set-up is even tougher for Pitt TY (fourth game in four days) and the result figures to be the same. LEGEND Play on Georgetown

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Larry Ness wipout winner Akron

REASON FOR PICK: I've ridden the Zips the in their first two games of the MAC Tourney (both wins and covers) and will go for the "hat trick" here. The 6-6 Wood (14.0-7.9) is the team's best player and has 29 points and 15 rebounds in the first two games but the bigger story has been Akron's three-point shooting, as the Zips are 17-of-32 (53.1) in the two games. That's unlikely to continue but as I've claimed the last two days, this team is "on a mission." Akron was left out of the entire postseason LY, failing to get an at-large NCAA bid (despite 26 wins) after losing to Miami-Ohio on a last-second shot in the MAC title game. The NIT even snubbed them! Akron's come back with another solid season, finishing second to Kent State in the MAC-East with a 11-5 league mark. With two wins in the tourney, the Zips are now 23-9 overall. However, they KNOW there will be no NCAA invite without a win tonight. Ss for Kent St, most believe the Golden Flashes (27-6) are deserving of an at-large bid win or lose, although with the committee's past history with the MAC (last at-large bid came in 1999), I can't believe Kent will take anything for granted. However, I still believe Akron is the more motivated team, after last year's snub and two losses to Kent this season. The first came at Kent when the Golden Flashes shot 57.5 percent and still won by just six points and the second loss came just this past Sunday, on the final day of the regular season. In that game, the Zips, who are 17-of-32 from behind the three-point arc in this tourney, made just 3-of-23 three-pointers and still lost by just THREE points. Kent State had an easy time Thursday with a bad Toledo team but against always-gritty Miami-O last night, needed a game-winner from guard Fisher with three seconds remaining, to win 49-47. Fisher (14.1-3.8-4.1) is paired in the backcourt with Singletary (10.1) and two seniors, the 6-7 Scott (13.1-6.0) and the 6-8 Quaintance (9.8-7.5), are the frontcourt stars. Although Kent has won 27 games, the team really doesn't have much depth. I'll point out that when Kent beat Akron the first time (Jan 23), the just-mentioned foursome combined for 64 of the team's 75 points (some balance!). Meanwhile, Wood gets tons of help in the frontcourt from the McKnight brothers (combined 10.3-4.2) plus Linhart and Milum (combined 12.9-7.8). In the backcourt, Dials (12.2-4.3 APG) and Middleton (9.8) start, with freshman McNees (5.6) coming off the bench. For both teams, this is their third game in three days, so depth matters! I called for Akron to win this thing right from the start and won't back off now. In fact, I expect a comfortable win, so while Akron just waits to see which team it will play next week, Kent will have to "sweat-out" Selection Sunday. Weekend Wipeout winner on Akron

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Larry Ness insider UNLV

EXPERT: Larry Ness
REASON FOR PICK: The Rebels beat the Cougars 70-41 in Las Vegas on Jan 15 and then a month later (Feb 16, to be exact), the Cougars returned the favor in Provo, routing UNLV 74-48. The two schools square off tonight (at Las Vegas), in the MWC title game. It's doubtful that an NCAA bid is on the line in this one, as BYU won the regular season title at 14-2 and enters tonight's game 27-6 overall, while UNLV was second (12-4) and comes in 25-7. Considering the MWC has placed two teams in the NCAA tourney in each of the last six years, the winner AND loser of this game is almost guaranteed an invitation to the Big Dance. BYU cruised past pathetic Colorado St on Thursday but although the Cougars won and covered over SDSU last night (63-54 at minus-6 1/2), it was hardly an impressive effort. The team's three guards, Burgess (8.1), Fredette (6.6) and Murdock (4.1-3.8 APG) were a combined 0-for-8 from the floor, totaling just six points. BYU's strength is the 6-11 Plaisted (15.8-7.7) plus its pair of 6-6 dynamos, Cummard (16.0-6.5-3.5) and Tavernari (13.2-5.4). As for UNLV, the Rebels returned only PG Wink Adams (16.3-3.9-3.2) from LY's 30-win, Sweet 16 team but in the 6-6 Rougeau (9.0-5.8) and the 6-5 Terry (10.6-3.2-5.1), they have two athletes who can play with Cummard and Tavernari (unlike ANY of the other MWC schools!). In this tourney so far, the Rebels survived TCU's 17-of-23 three-point 'barrage' on Thursday (won 89-88) and then Utah's inspired effort last night, winning 61-55. Adams has been brilliant in the two games with 49 points, while Rougeau has 29 points and 20 rebounds and Terry 35 points! UNLV does not have a player the size of Plaisted but the 6-7 Darger (11.5-4.6) and the 6-8 Shaw (7.1-4.3) won't back down. The 6-5 Bailey (6.9-3.8) is an added player to combat the duo of Cummard and Tavernari. UNLV faced Utah's 7-1 Nevill last night, holding him in check, with 15 points and just five rebounds (good dress rehearsal for UNLV's big men). Playing this game on its homecourt is a tremendous edge for UNLV (18-2 SU this year) and the Rebels took advantage of the home surroundings to beat BYU in LY's title game, 78-70. BYU no longer has the terrific 6-6 Keena Young, who had 34 points and nine rebounds in that game, and it should not go unnoticed that Plaisted had just seven points in LY's title game. Let's also note that when the teams met here in January, Plaisted had just five points and six rebounds, Cummard and Tavernari combined for only 14 points plus the guard trio of Burgess, Fredette and Murdock made just 3-of-12 shots, scoring 11 points. This just in. The homecourt edge MATTERS! Las Vegas Insider on UNLV

GAMBLERS WORLD

TIP OF THE DAY BYU Cougars vs. UNLV Rebels

Prediction: UNLV Rebels

Reason: The fans at Thomas & Mack Center will be treated to a game between the BYU Cougars and the UNLV Rebels when they take their seats on Saturday. Oddsmakers currently have the Rebels listed as 1-point favorites versus the Cougars, while the game's total is sitting at 126½. Lee Cummard scored 20 points on Friday to guide BYU to a 63-54 win over the San Diego State Aztecs in the semi-finals of the Mountain West Conference tournament. The Cougars managed to cover the 6.5-point spread in that contest, while the combined score fell UNDER the night's posted total (128). The Rebels pulled away in the second half on Friday night to secure a 61-55 win over the Utah Utes in the semi-finals of the Mountain West Conference tournament. The Rebels just managed to cover the 5-point spread in that tourney contest, while the combined score fell UNDER the night's posted total (125.5). Team records: BYU: 27-6 SU, 16-12-1 ATS UNLV: 25-7 SU, 16-12-1 ATS BYU most recently: When playing on Saturday are 4-6 After playing San Diego State are 9-1 After a win are 9-1 UNLV most recently: When playing on Saturday are 5-5 After playing Utah are 6-4 After a win are 7-3 A few trends to consider: BYU is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games The total has gone OVER in 8 of BYU's last 10 games when playing UNLV BYU is 10-3-1 ATS in its last 14 games The total has gone UNDER in 6 of BYU's last 9 games UNLV is 6-1 SU in its last 7 games The total has gone OVER in 8 of UNLV's last 10 games when playing BYU UNLV is 6-2 ATS in its last 8 games when playing BYU The total has gone UNDER in 7 of UNLV's last 10 games

Re: Saturday Service Plays

BIG AL

At 11:30 am, our selection is on the top-seeded Memphis Tigers minus the points over Tulsa, as we will play on John Calipari's crew to rebound off its ATS loss yesterday (Memphis won 69-53 as a 19-point favorite). And, since 1992, #1-seeded favorites are a solid 25-5 ATS in the post-season if they failed to cover the spread in their previous game by 8 or less points. The Memphis Tigers have dominated Tulsa, going 6-0 in Conference USA games, and Memphis has won 41 straight league games since an 80-74 loss to UAB on March 2, 2006. Tulsa has dropped 11 straight games against ranked opponents, and will be outclassed once again by Memphis, which defeated Tulsa 56-41 and 82-67 already this season. But this game shouldn't be as close as those two, as Tulsa will come into this early morning game off back-to-back overtime wins on Thursday and Friday. Look for the Golden Hurricane to be a bit exhausted in the later stages of this game, and it won't help matters when Memphis breaks out to a double-digit lead. At that point, Tulsa's confidence and energy level will be challenged. This will be a rout. Take Memphis. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie. And don't miss my two other winners today, including my Big 12 Tourney Game of the Year.

At 4:20 pm, our selection is on the Kansas Jayhawks minus the points over Texas A&M. These two squads met just once in the regular season, and that was last week in College Station. Kansas won that game easily, 72-55, and was led by Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur, who each tallied 16 points, while Sherron Collins chipped in 13 for the Jayhawks. The KU defense stifled Texas A&M, and held the Aggies to 31% FG shooting, and outscored them 44-12 in the paint. So, Texas A&M will be seeking revenge today, but they just don't match up well with Kansas, which has won 11 of the last 12 meetings (8-4 ATS). And revenging teams off back-to-back wins are a poor 35% ATS in the semi-final round of conference tournaments vs. .634 (or better) foes. Big 12 Tourney Game of the Year on Kansas. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie. And don't miss my other two winners on this Saturday.

At 6 pm, our selection is on the Temple Owls over St. Joes. Temple is playing great ball right now, with wins in 14 of its last 18 games. And yesterday's 15-point victory over Charlotte was typical. Temple outhustled Charlotte, and pulled down 44 rebounds (to Charlotte's 25), and blocked five shots (to Charlotte's none). Now, Temple gets to play its Philadelphia rival, St. Joseph's, which it defeated on March 2nd. St. Joe's upset Xavier yesterday. But a close look at the boxscore reveals that St. Joe's was a bit fortunate. Xavier outrebounded the Hawks 31-23, yet lost the game because it failed to hit its 3-point shots (1 of 14). And, as the #5 seed, St. Joe's has the difficult task of trying to win its fourth game in four days (compared to Temple, which is seeded 2nd, and earned a bye into the quarterfinals). And teams rarely have been able to win four straight games vs. a foe that earned a bye into the quarterfinals. There have been 35 Conference Championship games played with this scenario, and our higher seeded team has won 27 of 35 games straight up, covering 20. But here, Temple has been installed as the underdog, so let's take the Owls, who also are playing better overall ball than St Joe's, this evening. Conference Tourney Underdog of the Year on Temple. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie. And don't miss my Big 12 Tourney Game of the Year today.
