PHILADELPHIA 76ERS

Hitting the NBA hardwood for today’s freebie winner I say take Philadelphia plus the road points as the 76ers continue to shine. I mean thanks to the 76ers still red hot having won 7 of their last 9 games and now getting a Cleveland team that is playing on back to back night after losing big time at Detroit on Saturday the schedule favors Philly big time today. Plus, given the fact that Cleveland has lost their last 3 games and last outright at home to Philadelphia by 6 back in December all signs points towards the points today.In a key Eastern Conference battle grab the points as Philadelphia earns the cash!

5* GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS

Both of these teams are fighting for their playoff lives right now, and neither has played all that consistently of late. And in fact the Warriors have really struggled to cover numbers at home in recent weeks. That said, there really is a lot of line value with Golden State, despite the fact Don Nelson’s squad is coming off last night’s fast-paced game played at altitude in Denver. Why? Because the Mavs are minus All-Star Dirk Nowitzki, who is out with that leg injury. Now, Dallas did handle the Clippers at home (103-90 win) in its first game without its bread-and-butter, but, c’mon, that was the Clippers. Two nights later the Mavs went to Denver and we got a real sense of Life Without Dirk, as they got destroyed 118-105 as an 8½-point favorite. That, by the way, was Dallas’ fifth consecutive non-cover (1-4 straight-up). Now, in a must-win game for both teams, the Dirk-less Mavs face their old nemesis in what figures to be a raucous, playoff-intense atmosphere. Remember: The Warriors have had Dallas’ number the last few years, including that miraculous six-game playoff win last year when Golden State as a No. 8 seed knocked out the top-seeded Mavs. True, the Warriors have lost both meetings to Dallas this year, but they did cover the spread in one of them, improving to 21-5-1 ATS in the last 27 meetings! Not only that, but Golden State is 7-0 ATS in the last seven clashes against the Mavs in Oakland! And guess what? Nowitzki played in those contests! In the end, I don’t see how Dallas contains or keeps up with the Warriors here without Nowitzki. And despite the back-to-back situation for Golden State, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see a double-digit rout for the home team.

WASHINGTON WIZARDS

My oh my have the Lakers suddenly hit the skids. All season long Kobe and the fellas had been great and then all of a sudden at home against the bottom feeders of the NBA in Charlotte and Memphis Los Angeles forgot how to play the game of basketball. I'm sure Phil Jackson's squad will get a much needed win here, even with Pau Gasol probably still out injured, but the Lake show has some issues right now and I'll take back this number with Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison and the decent enough and red hot boys from DC. The Wiz have won two straight, five of six and eight of 10 after coming back brilliantly at Arco on Friday against a Sacramento team that is pretty good at home. These guys are going to get their star in Gilbert Arenas back pretty soon and overall have got to be feeling very good about themselves after surviving without their All-Star point guard for most of the season and being a few games away from officially clinching a playoff berth. LA has dropped two straight and three of four. They may be able to pull this game out but yet again they may not. I'll grab whatever I can here with this live road dog!

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Alex Smart

Game: Utah Jazz vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
Prediction: Utah Jazz -6.5

Reason: The Utah Jazz enter into this tilt against their hosts the Minnesota Timberwolves well aware of a ugly 111-100 loss they suffered here earlier this season, in embarrassing fashion , as they turned the ball over 24 times. . Needless to say, the Jazz will be primed for a big time performance , making them the right side in this spot, even though they have some key players hobbled with nagging injuries. Final notes & Key Trends: Minnesota is 17-35 ATS L52 at home. Play on Utah

TIP OF THE DAY

Davidson (10) vs. Kansas (1)

Prediction: Kansas Jayhawks

Current Line: -9 Over/Under: 144 Reason: The bigger they come, the harder they fall. Is No. 1 Kansas ready for a fall at the hands of No. 10 Davidson or will they end the road for the little giant-killing school Sunday when they meet at Ford Field? The Wildcats have felled a No. 2 (Georgetown) and a No. 3 (Wisconsin) - why not a No. 1? Because they haven't faced a team as deep and balanced as the Jayhawks. Oddsmakers currently have the Jayhawks listed as 9-point favorites versus the Wildcats, while the game's total is sitting at 144. Stephen Curry dropped 33 points to lead No. 10 Davidson over No. 3 Wisconsin in the Midwest Regional semifinals on Friday night. Davidson cashed as 4-point underdogs as the game played over the 126.5-point total set by oddsmakers. Brandon Rush scored 16 points as No. 1 Kansas defeated No. 12 Villanova 72-57 in the Midwest Regional semifinals on Friday night. Kansas covered as 11.5-point favorites as the game played under the 141.5-point total posted by sportsbooks. Team records: Davidson: 29-6 SU, 23-10 ATS Kansas: 34-3 SU, 19-14-2 ATS Davidson most recently: When playing on Sunday are 7-3 After a win are 10-0 Kansas most recently: When playing on Sunday are 7-3 After playing Villanova are 2-0 After a win are 9-1 A few trends to consider: Davidson is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games Davidson is 6-1 ATS in its last 7 games Kansas is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games Kansas is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Kansas's last 7 games

20 Dime

DAVIDSON

Take the points with Davidson when they take on Kansas in the Midwest Regional Final.

By now everyone who follows the tournament, and probably those that don’t, have heard about the Cinderella run Davidson is on.

It hasn’t been smoke and mirrors, either.

This team is as fundamentally sound as any team left in the Big Dance. They simply don’t waste any possessions and that’s what puts the pressure on their opponent. The Wildcats have only nine turnovers total in the last two games.

What’s more, they have the single hottest scorer in the field right now in Stephen Curry.

Curry is averaging 34 ppg in the tournament and if he was able to find openings against a defensive stalwart like Wisconsin, he’ll be able to do it again today against Kansas.

But this Davidson team is no one-trick pony. They also have Jason Richards, who has 27 assists against just four turnovers in the last three games.

With all that being said, I don’t expect Davidson to win this game. Kansas is just too good to let down today.

But it’s also very hard to go against the hottest scorer in the tournament and a team that is on a 43-19-1 ATS run in its last 63 games overall.

Take the points with Davidson as they go down swinging and stay within the number.

10 Dime

MEMPHIS

Take Memphis as the small chalk over Texas in the South Regional Final.

This Memphis offense just puts too much pressure on its opponent for me to go against it here.

Even playing in Houston, I don’t see the Longhorns being able to cope with the talent that Memphis has. There’s no doubt Texas has a great backcourt with D. J. Augustin and A. J. Abrams, but can they get it done against Chris Douglas-Roberts and Derrick Rose?

I think the Texas backcourt will be so fatigued from chasing their Memphis counterparts around its going to affect them offensively.

You saw how much pressure an up-tempo attack can put on its opponent in last night’s North Carolina win.

For every score you get, it seems like you’re giving one up almost immediately on the other end.

I look for Memphis to ratchet up its offensive pressure to another level this afternoon and to keep the Longhorns on their heels.

Take Memphis as the small chalk as they advance to the Final Four with the win and cover

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Jeff Benton

20 Dime: KANSAS (minus the points vs. Davidson)

15 Dime: MEMPHIS (minus the points vs. Texas)

5 Dime: HEAT (plus the points vs. Celtics)


Kansas

I will not knock the Davidson Wildcats. What this team has done, led by the remarkable Stephen Curry, is beyond impressive, not only to get to the Elite Eight, but winning 25 games in a row in the process. All this said, though, Cinderella’s carriage is turning into a pumpkin tonight, as Kansas is just too damn talented, too damn athletic and too damn deep for Davidson. As many of you know, I stated way back in November that Kansas was my favorite to win it all, and aside from the occasional hiccup here and there, the Jayhawks have done nothing to sway my opinion – particularly what they’ve done through their first three Tournament games. After crushing Portland State by 24 points (as expected), Kansas buried a solid UNLV squad 75-56 as a 13½-point chalk, then pounded Villanova on Friday in a game that was not nearly as close as the 72-57 final indicated.

To get a firm grasp on just how impressive Kansas has been to this point, consider these numbers; The Jayhawks outscored their first three opponents by an average of 19 points per game (77-58), and again that could be greater had they not let off the gas against Villanova. What’s more, they have shot a ridiculous 55 percent from the field, while allowing their opponents to make just 34 percent of their attempts. But that’s not all: From three-point range – which is where Davidson makes its living – Kansas is shooting 43.9 percent. Their opponents? 26.5 percent (17-for-64).

Now check this out: As incredible as Davidson has been in the Tournament so far, the Wildcats (45.5 percent) have shot worse from the field than their opponents (50 percent). Also, Davidson has 10 fewer rebounds than its opponents, getting out-boarded in all three contests! That tells right there how much the Wildcats (mostly Curry) have relied on the three-pointer.

So I ask you: If Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin – three defensive-oriented teams that don’t have nearly the kind of explosiveness offensively as Kansas – can make half of their shots against Davidson and outrebound Davidson, what do you think the Jayhawks are going to do? Guys, Kansas is going to guard the perimeter fiercely tonight, and although Curry probably will get his – the guy is a freak of nature – I don’t see him getting much help, if any.

Lay the wood with Kansas, as the Jayhawks and Bill Self FINALLY get to the Final Four – and do so in convincing fashion.


Memphis

I told you on Friday that the Memphis Tigers have been underrated. overlooked and disrespected by everyone all season long (including by me). And I told you that the players on this team – which, I remind you, is 36-1 on the season – would absolutely use the slights as a source of motivation in Friday’s game against Michigan State. So what happened? The Tigers absolutely toyed with the Spartans all night, busting out to a 50-20 halftime lead and cruising to 92-74 victory that – like Kansas’ win over Villanova – wasn’t nearly that close.

Well, here we are two days later and once again Memphis is getting dissed – they’re barely favored over second-seeded Texas. And I promise you that coach John Calipari will have his players well aware of that fact coming into this game – just as I promise you that his players will respond as they did against Michigan State. No, I’m not saying Memphis will dismantle Texas the same way they did the Spartans (although a double-digit win wouldn’t surprise me in the least). What I am saying, however, is that the Tigers’ overall body of work is superior to the Longhorns’; their talent is superior to the Longhorns’; their height and length are superior to the Longhorns’; their depth is superior to the Longhorns’; and their coach is superior to the Longhorns’.

The only thing Memphis doesn’t do better than Texas: Shoot free throws, of course. By now we all know about the Tigers’ struggles from the charity stripe (they shoot just 60 percent for the season). However, Texas (68 percent) isn’t all that much better. And when you just focus on the last five games, well, what do you know: The Tigers are shooting 63.7 percent from the foul line, compared with the Longhorns’ 62.9 percent. Hmm … And look at what happened Friday: Memphis drained 26 of 35 free tries (74.3 percent) vs. Michigan State, while Texas went 11-for-18 (61.1 percent) against Stanford. Get the point?

Look, as I said the other day, you can knock Memphis all you want. But you cannot argue the results. Not only have the Tigers won 36 of 37 games on the season, but they’ve defeated a slew of quality opponents, including Michigan State (by 18), Oklahoma (by 10), UConn (by 11), USC (by four), Georgetown (by 14), Arizona (by 13) and Gonzaga (by 8).

Bottom line: After two failed tries in the Elite Eight the last two years, Calipari and his Tigers finish the job tonight. Lay the ridiculously cheap price with Memphis.


Heat

I’ll state right off the bat that I cannot defend the Miami Heat in their current state, which is a borderline NBA D-League team right now without Shawn Marion and DwyaneWade. And I will not knock the Boston Celtics, who have reminded us over the last 10 days that they’re the best team in the NBA. But I’m sorry, you give me 20-plus points in an NBA game – a game Boston will not take seriously, I promise you – I simply have to take them on the principle alone. After all, three days ago Miami went to Detroit as a 20½-point underdog, jumped out to 23-18 lead after the first quarter, proceeded to get outscored by 18 points the rest of the way … and still covered easily in an 85-69 loss. As a matter of fact, as bad as Miami has been, it has covered in four straight games (all as an underdog, obviously), and the Heat are 9-3 ATS in their last 12, including 5-1 ATS on the road.

Like I said, there’s now way that Boston, which has a road game at Chicago on Tuesday, will play with full intensity tonight. Remember, in a grueling 82-game season, gimme games like this are few and far between, so you can count on the C’s going through the motions tonight. And hell, even if they’re up 30 in the fourth quarter, they’re going to pull all the starters and the backdoor will be wide open. I know it seems ludicrous, folks, but take these huge points and ride Miami’s hot ATS streak.
