ANGELS
Game: Los Angeles Angels vs. Minnesota Twins
Prediction: Los Angeles Angels Reason: I'm laying the price with the ANGELS. The Twins grabbed yesterday's opener with Carlos Gomez outplaying Torii Hunter, the man he replaced in Minnesota. However, as Hunter pointed out: "I've been 0-for-4 on Opening Day before, and my numbers are going to be there. You've got to be patient. We've got 161 left, and we're going to do some damage." I expect Hunter and co. to bounce back and start "doing that damage" this evening. Garland gets the call and he'll be highly motivated to have a strong debut with his new team. Garland was 1-0 with a 2.57 ERA in four spring starts. He'll face Big Boof Bonser. Actually, Bonser isn't quite so big this season, after losing several pounds in the offseason. Losing the weight could very well help Bonser improve his yearly stats. However, that remains to be seen and this is a tough matchup for him. In addition to facing a highly motivated Torii Hunter, who will be looking to bounce back after yesterday's poor showing, Bonser will have to deal with the likes of leadoff hitter Chone Figgins, who is batting .400 against him, and slugger Vlad Guerrero, who is batting .500 against him. Additionally, First baseman Casey Kotchman, who went 3-for-4 yesterday, is hitting .375 against Bonser. Bonser was 8-12 with a 4.92 ERA as a starter in 2007 but just 4-11 with a 5.94 ERA over his final 20 starts. For the season, he was 3-5 with a 5.38 ERA at home and 0-2 with a 6.27 ERA vs. the Angels. The Angels haven't started out 0-2 since 2001. Behind a solid effort from Garland, who has pitched at least seven innings in each of his last four April starts, look for them to avoid doing so here, improving to 14-7 the last 21 series meetings. *Personal Favorite

NBA

BUCKS
Game: New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks
Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks Reason: I'm laying the points with MILWAUKEE. The Bucks lost their fourth straight last time out, rallying from a large deficit to eventually fall by three points at Chicago. They covered the spread though, which brings them to a profitable 13-4 ATS on the season after having lost three or more consecutive games. Tonight, the Bucks step down in class to face a New York team which has just one win in its last 10 road games - and that came at Miami by three points. Note that ALL nine losses came by a minimum of five points. While neither team will be making the playoffs, note that the Bucks, who remain a respectable 500 at home, will be motivated to avoid falling below 500 at home and also to avenge a pair of earlier losses to the Knicks. That includes a 1-point loss here in which the Bucks held a 17-point lead. Look for them to serve up some 'sweet revenge' with a convincing victory for the home fans.

BULLS
Game: Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls
Prediction: Chicago Bulls Reason: I'm taking the points with CHICAGO. The Celtics have had a terrific season and continue to play well. This game means more to the Bulls though and I expect them to be the 'hungrier' team this evening. The Celtics have all but clinched the top spot while the Bulls are desperately fighting for the eighth spot. While that doesn't appear like it's going to happen, it doesn't mean that they aren't going to go down without a fight. Note that the Bulls have won back to back games here and are 8-4 their last 12 home games overall. Note that three of the four losses came by seven points or less. The Bulls will also have the added motivation that comes from playing with "triple revenge" as they look to avoid the embarrassing series sweep. The Bulls have gone a highly profitable 20-5-1 ATS (21-5 SU) in April the past two seasons. I look for them to give a huge effort and improve on those stats this evening.

TWOLVES
Game: Detroit Pistons vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
Prediction: Minnesota Timberwolves Reason: I'm taking the points with MINNESOTA. The T-Wolves have been fighting hard at home lately but continue to get little respect. The T-Wolves won outright vs. Utah here on Sunday and are now 4-0 SU their last four games here. Note that only one of their last eight games here resulted in a loss of greater than seven points. Conversely, the Pistons are 0-3/ATS SU their last three road games and 0-5 ATS (1-4 SU) their last five. Looking back further and we find them at 4-13 ATS their last 17 road games, going 8-9 SU. Note that only three of those victories came by greater than seven points. They don't have much incentive here and coach Saunders has said: "We're going to give our young guys a lot of minutes. It'll be young guys against young guys." Look for the T-Wolves "young guys" to continue their recent strong play as the Pistons fall to 2-7 ATS on the season when listed as road favorites in the -6.5 to -9 range.

NHL

OTTAWA
Game: Montreal Canadiens vs. Ottawa Senators
Prediction: Ottawa Senators Reason: I'm laying the price with OTTAWA. This a huge game for the Senators. For starters, they're playing with 'revenge' from a loss at Montreal last week. The Sens are also looking to bounce back from a 4-0 loss in their last game. Most importantly, they desperately need to pick up the two points. That's because they could still earn home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs OR they could fall all the way to ninth, if they don't turn things around. Its also a big game for the Canadiens as they can clinch their first division title in the past 16 years. Still, in my opinion, it's not nearly as critical a game for Montreal, as it is for Ottawa. Its also worth noting that the Canadiens are currently dealing with some injury issues, including one to captain Saku Koivu, which is a rather key loss. As Canadiens coach Guy Carbonneau said: "He's someone with a lot of experience, he's a leader, he's our captain and he's played in big games internationally. We'll definitely miss him..." Despite last week's loss at Montreal, the Senators have still won five of seven meetings against Montreal this season and are 8-2 the last 10 series meetings overall. That includes a perfect 6-0 mark the last six games here at Ottawa. Note that the Sens outscored the Canadiens by a whopping 30-11 margin in those games, including a 13-5 count in this season's three meetings here. Ottawa was listed at -170, -185 and -225 for those games. Tonight's line is much more reasoable and I feel it provides us with excellent value. Although they haven't been sharp for some time now, I still believe that the Sens are capable of being an elite team. I expect them to play up to their potential this evening, earning a very important two points and continuing their home ice dominance in this series. *Eastern Conference GOY

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Priceless Picks

1 Unit on Minnesota +8.5

This line has moved in our favor and we'll lock it in with the T-Wolves catching better than 8 points against a Pistons team which has lost 3 straight road games.  This veteran Pistons team often coasts against lesser opponents and as a result is just 5-16 ATS versus terrible teams - outscored by their opponents by 6+ points/game over the last 3 seasons.  Detroit is 4-13 ATS in road games after failing to cover 2 of their last 3 against the spread this season, 3-17 ATS in road games after scoring 85 points or less over the last 3 seasons, and 1-10 ATS in road games after a combined score of 175 points or less 2 straight games over the last 3 seasons.  Take the points.

SAN -8.5 vs GSW

Just when it seemed like time to write off the defending champs (four titles since '99), the Spurs reminded everyone they are still a legitimate title threat. San Antonio dropped six of seven games from Mar 7 through Mar 17, going 0-7 ATS during its slide. However, beginning with a 102-80 win at Chicago on Mar 20, the Spurs have won seven straight (6-1 ATS), which is the longest current winning streak in the league. Golden State enters this game with a streak of its own, as the league's highest scoring team (111.1 PPG) has reached the 100-point mark in 37 straight games. However, while the Warriors are 25-12 SU in those contests, they are just 16-21 ATS. Golden State ended a long playoff drought last year and then shocked the Mavericks, who owned the NBA's best record LY, in the first round. The Warriors have played even better this year but the team's 45-28 mark is good for only 8th in the amazingly competitive Western Conference, a mark that leaves then just a half-game ahead of Denver for the West's final playoff spot. The Spurs' seven-game winning streak has them at 51-23, one game better than the Lakers and Suns (both 50-24) and just percentage points behind the Hornets (50-22), for the West's best record. The dynamics of this game are really interesting, as the teams have met twice already this year with the Warriors winning each time, 96-84 on Dec 11 and 130-121 in OT on Jan 7. However, both of those games were played in Oakland. Believe it or not, the Warriors have lost 19 straight games in San Antonio, by an average of 17.2 PPG, which should come as no surprise when one considers they have only averaged 84.5 PPG in those 19 contests. Let's remember, this year's team leads the league in scoring and has reached triple digits in 37 consecutive games. However, San Antonio (as always) is one of the league's best defensive teams, ranking third in the league in PPG allowed, at 90.9. During the team's seven-game winning streak, the Spurs are allowing only 86.7 PPG. Something has got to give. I'm betting it's the Warriors. Lay the points with the Spurs.

EZWINNERS

Toronto Blue Jays + 151

Its not often you will get Roy Halladay at this kind of price but the New York Yankees name gets us value here. The Yankees opening day starter Chien-Ming Wang was 0-2 with a 6.35 ERA in three starts against the Jays last season and he has been knocked around in spring training this year where he finished up with a 8.04 ERA. Roy Halliday's ERA the last three seasons pitching at Yankee Stadium is a microscopic 0.61! I'll gladly take Toronto as a dog with their ace on the mound.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Info Plays

3* on Seattle Mariners -1.5 +114
(Listing Padilla and Hernandez)

Felix Hernandez use being named the No. 2 starter this season to be extra motivated to have an even more impressive 2008.  Erik Bedard took his spot as the Mariners’ Ace, and now Hernandez has to prove he is still worth of that spot come next season.  It all starts tonight against the Rangers.  Hernandez finished with a 14-7 record and a nice 3.82 ERA last year.  Texas will counter with righthander Vicente Padilla, who will be trying to bounce back from an atrocious 2007, that saw him post a 6-10 record with a 5.76 ERA.  Padilla has never fared well against the Mariners, owning a 2-7 mark with a 6.26 ERA in nine games - seven starts. Ichiro Suzuki has been a particularly big problem for Padilla, owning a .522 (12-for-23) batting average.  Felix Hernandez has is 3-0 in his last 3 starts against the Rangers, allowing just 4 earned runs in 22 innings of work.  The Mariners easily win this one by at least 2 runs Tuesday.  Bet Seattle on the -1.5 Run Line.

Houston Rockets vs. Sacramento Kings
Play: Houston Rockets 

Off Sunday's embarrassing loss at San Antonio, Houston will be champing at the bit to get back on the winning track.

Offensively, the Rockets should have a field day against the Kings porous defense. In case you have noticed, Sacramento has allowed opponents to top the century mark in 20 of its last 21 games. When Houston pops for 100 or more on foreign soil, the Rockets are a solid investment posting an amazing 130-30-6 ATS record in their last 166 games.

Don't forget, Tracy McGrady and company has been one of the best in the league when coming off a straight up loss too. In fact, as a guest coming off a blemish, Houston is a profitable 149-86 ATS provided the Rockets are matched up against a non-division foe. In this role running in a back-to-back or with one day of rest, Houston improves to a sensational 134-68 ATS!

Without the services of Mike Bibby (traded to Atlanta), Sacramento has been an average ballclub posting a mediocre 10-11 SU mark. In addition, the Kings are a soft 9-26 SU and 14-10-1 ATS in their last 35 tries against the Southwest Division.

The Rockets have exploded in their last 41 games notching a remarkable 34-7 SU and 28-13 ATS record including a marvelous 14-4 SU and 13-5 ATS in this set as a guest. Let's lay this small number and cash a nice ticket. Take Houston.

Indian Cowboy

Philadelphia 76ers @ New Jersey Nets
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: New Jersey Nets -1 (-109) (Play of the Day)

This is a game that the Nets should win outright at home and frankly, this game opened up with the Nets being the underdog off shore and quickly moved to the Nets being the favorite - despite the public heavily in favor of the Sixers. Now, I love betting on the Sixers typically as they are a very good team. In fact, I think if there is any team that is likely to defeat the Celtics in the playoffs in the East as a surprise, it is the Sixers who beat them outright in Boston and it takes a defensive team in my opinion to beat Boston and the Sixers are definitely that. However, don't take anything away from the Nets. They were a lousy team at times with Jason Kidd but this team has been rejuvinated by Devin Harris who has sped up the tempo of this team. In fact, the Mavs have gown downard with comparison to their offense - and this was even when Dirk was healthy while the Nets are the same team that has been competing for that last playoff spot in the East - this is the same team that saw the Hawks pound the Grizzlies yesterday and gain an additional edge and this team has to keep up if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive, they lost 4 to this Sixers team on the road so this is a key revenge game, they come off back to back losses similar to the Sixers, but the revenge angle and the fact that the Hawks won yesterday makes the difference in my opinion. I expect the Nets to be down early, but then start chipping away and end up winning this ballgame. The Nets are a superior team after a straight up loss given this stretch to get into the playoffs as they are 5-0 ATS after a straight up loss.


New Orleans Hornets @ Orlando Magic
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: New Orleans Hornets -1 (-114) (Normal)

The last team the Hornets had revenge against was the Raptors on the road, but I laid off taking them and they just hammered the Raps. Well, why wouldn't I take the Hornets who lay atop the Western Conference Standings, continue to fight hard for the first place seeding with all the potent teams in the west in the Lakers, Suns, Warriors, Mavs, Rockets, Spurs and company right behind them. Heck, with a good run, a team can go from 8th to first as it is that tight in the West. The Hornets have won 8 of their last 10, their sense of urgency for this game is greater, they have revenge againstt the Magic who beat them at home so they will look to re-do the favor in Orlando. Does it seem like a surprise the Magic are dogged at home - it shouldn't as the Hornets are a very good team and you know how tough it is in the West - well consider, the Leader of the West - the hardest conference in the NBA out of the 2- which technically makes this team have an argument for the best team in the NBA this year, in a basic pick-em on the road - that is what you have here - with that team with revenge on top of that and having covered 8 of their last 10.


Golden State Warriors @ San Antonio Spurs
Pick: 3 unit(s) ATS: San Antonio Spurs -8.5 (-110) (Normal)

I suspect the majority of the public will think, the Warriors, Plus nearly 9 points - Wonderful! However, what if you were the Spurs and you were beat by this team twice this year on the road at Golden State, you obviously will not be in a good mood coming into this game. Granted, the Warriors come off a loss, but it was either this play or the Kings at home, but I would rather take the Spurs with double-revenge at home. The Spurs took this team to overtime on the road in their last ballgame, Golden State comes off a big win over the Mavs at home so they are not coming off a loss which is a good thing for this game, the Spurs beat Houston by 21 with revenge this past weekend and they should have no worries about beatig this potential playoff contender by double-digits at home today. I suspect this will be a relatively close game most of the way and the Spurs to lay the clamp down in the second half and pull the cover here in a decisive way. The Favorite is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 ballgames and the home team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings not to mention the Warriors are just 1-7 ATS in San Antonio of late.
