New York Knicks +8.0

The New York Knicks may be awful this season at 19-47 overall, but the Indiana Pacers have not exactly been setting the world on fire and they do not merit this much favoritism.

The Pacers are just 25-41 straight up, and they have a losing home record at 13-18 AU and 14-17 against the spread. Indiana is actually getting slightly outscored at home by a small average of -0.7 points per game, and it is difficult to lay this many points with a team that is surrendering a disgusting 105.8 points per game overall and an astronomical 111.2 points per over the last five contests.

As bet as the Knicks are, they are actually over .500 on the road at 16-15-1 ATS. They are also 3-2 straight up in their last five visits to Indiana, including a 108-106 decision as nine-point underdogs the last time they played here in Conseco.

These may be two bad teams, but the Knicks hole value at this price.

Pick: Knicks +8

Charlotte Bobcats vs. Memphis Grizzlies
Play: Charlotte Bobcats   

Despite Charlotte’s recent slide, they have been playing many quality opponents tough on the road. Charlotte played Houston and Cleveland very close in their last two road games, covering against the spread in each game. Despite the Bobcats poor road record, they have been able to beat weaker teams on the road. Charlotte is 5-3 straight up and 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games. This team has been playing better, as they are looking to get one of the last playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. Meanwhile, Memphis has been playing much worse since losing Pau Gasol. The Grizzlies are also in a tough situational position of being sandwiched between two road trips. They are coming off of a three game road trip against Phoenix, Denver, and Golden State. All three of those teams love to run up and down the court, which makes it even tougher stamina wise. Now they have to pla! y across country and play another game, then go on the road again in another day. To make things even worse, the Grizzlies are only 2-17 overall since the start of February. I look for Charlotte to control this game throughout as they dominate the road weary Grizzlies. PREDICTION: Charlotte Wins 103-89

Re: Monday Service Plays

Wunderdog MLB

Atlanta at St. Louis
Pick: Atlanta +104

Anthony Reyes (7.00 ERA) will square off against Mike Hampton (0.00) this afternoon. The Cards have had trouble producing runs this spring, as only three teams have scored less. At the same time, they have given up the fifth-most runs in the Grapefruit circuit, and even when playinghome they have been a sub-.500 team. The Braves have been producing runs second only to the Reds in the Grapefruit circuit, and at the same time have been able to produce a winning mark on the road. Hampton had a minor setback with some groin discomfort, but threw on the side and had no pain last week. He has not yielded a run yet this spring, while Reyes has been lit-up and the Braves ability to produce runs this spring makes them the choice here.

Priceless Picks

1 Unit on Bulls/Hornets OVER 202

New Orleans is coming off a terrible performance at Detroit Sunday, in which the Hornets scored just 84 points.  They'll waste no time trying to atone for that loss with a big performance back at home tonight.  With the trades that have gone down, Chicago's defense has struggled, especially on the road.  The Bulls have allowed 109.5 ppg over their last 4 games.  Both games played in this series at New Orleans the past 3 seasons have gone OVER the total and 15 of the last 21 games the Bulls have played on the road in this matchup have gone OVER.  The Over is 5-0-1 in Hornets last 6 games as a home favorite of 5.0-10.5, 7-1 in Hornets last 8 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points, and 12-3-1 in Hornets last 16 games as a home favorite.  The Over is 5-1 in Bulls last 6 overall and 5-1-1 in Bulls last 7 road games.  Take the OVER.

Re: Monday Service Plays

NESS INSIDER

SPURS

REASON FOR PICK: The Celtics returned from the All Star break and promptly lost the first three games of their five-game road trip vs Western Conference opponents (at Denver, Golden St and Phoenix). The team then won at Portland and LA (Clippers), sparking 11 wins in 12 games (8-4 ATS), including an easy 99-77 win a Milwaukee on Saturday. That game was the first of a five-game road trip that continues tonight in Sa Antonio against the Spurs. Boston is 52-13, 4 1/2-games better that the Pistons, who own the NBA second-best mark. However, this four-game stretch (over six days), has them visiting the Spurs (44-22), Rockets (46-20), Mavs (44-23) and Hornets (44-21). The Spurs enter this game having lost FIVE of six games (0-6 ATS), although all five losses have come away from San Antonio (Spurs are 27-5 SU at home). Boston's the league's best defensive team, ranking No. 1 in both opponents PPG (90.3) and FG percentage (41.8), while the Spurs rank 3rd in PPG (91.3) and eighth in FG percentage (44.9). The Spurs have been used to dominating the Celtics but that was before the "Big Three" of Pierce (19.9-5.3-4.7), KG (19.7-9.4) and Allen (18.3). The Spurs broke an 15-game losing streak in San Antonio last year (pre-KG and Allen, by the way!) and earlier this season, beat the Spurs 98-90 in Boston, in a contest in which neither KG played for the Celtics nor Parker played for the Spurs. Allen sat out the game at Milwaukee with an ankle sprain and is listed as questionable for this game. Cassell saw his most action as a Celtic in that game, playing 23 minutes, making five-of-nine shots and scoring 10 points (had five assists). The Celtics complimentary players have been very underrated this year and Cassell could be a GREAT addition to that underappreciated group. Parker (18.7-5.7 APG) missed nine straight games (late-Jan thru mid-Feb) while resting his ankle but he's looked very good lately, averaging 25.7 PPG on 68.0 percent shooting in San Antonio's last three games. Ginobili (20.2-5.0-4.7) is having a career-season and of course Duncan (19.7-11.5) is just Duncan. San Antonio is in a 'dog fight' in the West, as just 4 1/2 games separate the No. 1 seed from the No. 8 seed. San Antonio enters this game on a three-game losing streak and this proud franchise (four NBA titles in the last nine seasons!) has not had a four-game losing streak since early in the 2003-04 season. I'm backing the defending champs here. Las Vegas Insider on the SA Spurs (8*).


Utah

REASON FOR PICK: With all the major trades (Gasol, Shaq, Kidd) in the West being made after the first of the year, Utah getting Kyle Korver from Philly on Dec 29 (little-mentioned at the time), has surely sparked the Jazz. Korver's first game for Utah came on Dec 31, a night the Jazz ended Portland's 13-game winning streak. The Jazz are 28-8 overall since that night, including 18 straight home wins (12-6 ATS). Utah sports an NBA-best 28-3 (21-10 ATS) home mark and will try for win No. 19 in a row tonight, against the struggling Raptors. Chris Bosh (22.6-8.9) remains sidelined for the Raptors and they are 2-7 SU and ATS over his nine-game absence (are 4-10 this year in games he hasn't played). This contest marks Toronto's final game of a five-game road trip and the Raptors have yet to win, going 1-3 ATS. While the Raptors are the league's best three-point shooting team, at 40.4 percent, they are just not the same without Bosh. In the Jazz, they'll face a team which is not only the NBA's second-best shooting team (49.6 percent) but one which outscores opponents at home by the average game score of 108.0-to-94.9! Lay the points with Utah as the Jazz extend their home winning streak to 19 with an easy win and cover.

LA Clippers at MINNESOTA -6'

For Monday we will lay the points with the Minnesota Timberwolves over the visiting Clippers.

Minnesota comes back home off a two game road trip that saw them split a pair in the pacific northwest, as the Wolves have won 3 of their last 5 games both straight up, and against the spread.

Los Angeles continues to stink up the joint, as the Clips head to the Target Center having lost their last 3. LA has won just 2 of their last 13 games straight up, and with the points it hasn't been much better, as Los Angeles is on a 3-10 spread run. Included is a home loss to Minnesota 9 days ago in the City of Angels as the 4-point favorite.

The Timberwolves have now won and covered 3 of the last 4 series meetings, and we like them again tonight to add to that total.

Play on the T-Wolves.

1* MINNESOTA

INDIANA PACERS -7

We will lay the points with the Indiana Pacers as they face-off against the New York Knicks in Monday's NBA contest. The Indiana Pacers have a big advantage on the offensive end. The Indiana Pacers (at home) are scoring an average of 104.2 points per game, while the New York Knicks (on the road) are scoring an average of only 94.3 points per game. As you can see, the Indiana Pacers have a big advantage on the offensive end. The Indiana Pacers have already proven they are much better then the New York Knicks. In fact, the Indiana Pacers are 5-1 SU & ATS in their last 6 meetings against the New York Knicks.

Take the Indiana Pacers -7

JEFF BENTON

Toronto is in a horrible spot here, playing its fifth road game in seven nights after Sunday's tough 106-100 loss in Sacramento as a 4?-point road underdog. The results of the other four games on this trip: 117-108 loss at the Lakers, 117-106 loss at Golden State and 137-105 loss at Denver, with the only spread-cover coming in Los Angeles. As you can clearly see, the Raptors have been a mess defensively on this trip, and in fact have given up 100 plus in nine of their last 10 games all played without injured All-Star center Chris Bosh. Toronto's record in those 10 games without Bosh 2-8 straight-up and against the spread, with the two wins coming against Miami and Seattle, the two worst teams in the NBA!

As for the Jazz, simply put, they own their home court. They're 28-3 in Salt Lake, and dating back to last season, they're on a 29-11-1 ATS run at home, including 29-9-1 ATS as a favorite. They've beaten the Raptors five straight times (4-1 ATS), and that was when they had to contend with Bosh (who once again will sit out tonight) Throw in the fact that the straight-up winner has cashed in 38 of Toronto?s last 40 games, and I'm willing to pay the tax in the form of a slightly inflated number. Jazz roll big in this contest.

(Based on a 1* to 10* rating system)

3* UTAH JAZZ

MATT RIVERS

For Monday take the points with the Grizz.

Charlotte is no question the hotter and better team right now and especially so with Gerald Wallace back in the fold but for the Bobcats to be laying anything on the road anywhere is still a bit wrong. No doubt Memphis has thrown in the towel as they have dropped four straight and 13 of their last 14 and looking towards the future but Rudy Gay is really becoming a stud and if they are ever going to win it will be tonight against the Bobcats.

Yes Charlotte has been very solid with Jason Richardson lighting it up but it's still laying points on the road with a bad team. They have covered seven of eight but are also coming back down to Earth a bit after losing their second straight game in Houston against the insanely red hot Rockets. I obviously can't say they should have won that game because T-Mac and the fellas are smoking but after a few losses in a row the confidence could be lacking a bit.

The Bobcats are still somewhat hanging around for that eighth spot in the Eastern Conference but they are also in the middle of this six game road trip and with fatigue possibly playing a factor after running around in Cleveland on Sunday I'll take my chances on this dog with fleas home dog.

Small slates sometimes leave little to choose from and today is the bottom of the barrel. But in the end you can really never go wrong with points in your own gym as in the long run that is a non-losing proposition and that's my deal right here.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Delaney

20* MINNESOTA - The Clippers have lost three straight, and though we’re dealing with a pair of terrible teams in this one – two of the league’s worst – we have plenty of value when laying the chalk with the T’Wolves here. Tonight marks the end of a five-game road trip for Los Angeles, spanning the last eight days.

The Clippers have been to Florida for meetings with Miami and Orlando, then to Atlanta, where they were knocked around by 24, and finally Washington on Saturday for a 10-point, overtime loss in D.C. The straight-up winner is on a 9-0 ATS run in this series, while the Wolves have won and covered two straight – both in 2008. Lay the chalk here, as Minnesota rolls to the easy win and cover

Re: Monday Service Plays

Ben Burns

Cleveland vs. Orlando
Today's Pick: ORLANDO MAGIC

The Cavs managed a home victory over the Bobcats yesterday. However, tonight's game comes on the road and against a significantly tougher opponent. Indeed, the Magic are 44-24 for the season and they've won four in a row with each victory coming by a minimum of nine points. The Cavs are 0-3 SU the last three times that they played the second of back to back games and just 6-10 in that situation for the season. Looking back further and we find them at 26-33 SU the past three seasons when playing the second of back to back games, going a money-burning 23-34-2 against the number. During that stretch, they were also just 9-14 ATS (4-19 SU) when listed as road underdogs in the +6.5 to +9 range. Note that the Cavs have also lost five of their last six road games and that none of those teams, with the exception of Boston, were as tough as Orlando.

The Magic, who are 7-3 ATS the last 10 times that they were listed as home favorites in the -6.5 to -9 range, torched the Pacers for 122 points in their last game, which was here on Saturday. They've now reached triple-digits in scoring in four straight games and seven of their past eight. Additionally, its worth noting that they're 21-11 ATS on the season after scoring 105 or more points in their previous game and a highly profitable 44-22-1 ATS after having done so the past three seasons. The Cavs scored the upset here in the most recent series meeting. That should provide plenty of motivation for the Magic, who are 19-8 ATS on the season when playing with "revenge." Look for them to return the favor with another convincing victory in front of the home fans. Take the Magic.
