Ohio (2-5, 4-1-1 ATS) at Temple (2-5, 5-2 ATS)

Two teams in desperate need of a victory if they hope to get in the race for the Mid-American Conference’s East Division title clash in this nationally televised battle at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Owls have dropped five of their last six games, including a 24-14 setback at Central Michigan on Oct. 11, failing to cash as a 7½-point road underdog. Despite that non-cover, the Owls are still on a 7-2 ATS run overall, including 5-1 ATS in MAC play and 4-2 ATS on the road. Temple has given up just 12 points (four field goals) in two home games this year, but lost both contests to Western Michigan (7-3) and Connecticut (12-9 in overtime).

Ohio went to Kent State on Oct. 11 and escaped with a 26-19 victory as a one-point road chalk, as the Bobcats have now alternated SU wins and losses in their last four contests and alternated ATS wins and losses in their last five lined games. Going back to the middle of the 2006 season, Ohio is on a 17-7-1 ATS tear, going 10-6 ATS on the road (4-1 this year) and 11-5-1 ATS as an underdog.

These teams met last year – Temple’s first as a member of the MAC – at Ohio, and the Bobcats rolled to a 23-9 victory, cashing as a nine-point home chalk.

Ohio is 9-3 ATS in its last 12 road games and 11-5-1 ATS in its last 17 following a SU victory. Meanwhile, Temple is on ATS streaks of 5-1 at home, 13-3 in conference play, 6-1 in October and 4-1 both after a SU loss and an ATS setback.

On the statistical front, the Bobcats rate the edge on offense, putting up 24 points and 371 total yards per game (130 rushing ypg), compared with Temple’s per-game averages of 17 points and 267 total yards (103 rushing ypg). However, the Owls have the stronger defense, yielding 19.3 points and 364 total yards per game, while Ohio gives up 26.4 points and 369 total yards per effort. Neither defense is strong against the run, though, as the Bobcats give up 175 rushing ypg and Temple allows 156 rushing ypg.

The under for the Owls is on a bunch of streaks, including 12-2 overall, 13-3-1 at home, 9-1 in conference play, 6-0 in October and 5-0 against teams with a losing record. The under is also 4-1 in Ohio’s last five on the highway, and last year’s meeting between these teams stayed low.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER

VAN Canucks / COB Blue Jackets
Take COB Blue Jackets

Columbus played competitively at home last season and is doing so again, winning their only home contest, 5-3 over Nashville. It was their best offensive output in 4 games, and the only one at home. In fact, this is only their second home game. Vancouver (3-3) hasn't been that impressive, losing 3 of the last 4 games. This is the end of a brutal 6-game road trip and they've looked tired the last two games, mustering 2 goals in each game (both losses). They are off a 4-2 loss at Chicago. How bad is their defense? The Blackhawks went 2-for-5 on the power play after entering the game 2-for-22. A good scheduling spot for the home team. Play the Columbus Blue Jackets.

ATL Thrashers / TAM Lightning
Take ATL Thrashers

Barry Melrose said that his team might take some early season lumps and he was accurate with that prediction as Tampa Bay has yet to win. Whether or not Melrose's aggressive style takes hold with the Lightning is something we'll find out down the road. Right now, this team is fade material, especially as chalk. Atlanta is off to a decent enough start to warrant a look here, so I'll take the small dog odds with the Thrashers.

Jimmy The Moose

Atlanta Thrashers at Tampa Bay Lightning
Prediction: Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa has yet to win this season at 0-5 have lost their last 3 games either in OT or a shootout. Lightning have been getting solid goaltending but it's ther offence that has struggled, 1.6 goals/game thus far. Tampa offence will finally explode tonight vs a Thrashers team allowing 3 goals/game. Play on Tampa Bay -.

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Chris Jordan

Boston at TAMPA BAY (-150, series) 

So the stage is set, and as much as I would love to see my boy Shane Victorino win a World Series ring after he personally hoisted the Phillies on his shoulders in the National League playoffs, I just don't believe it's going to happen because of three glaring reasons:

Pitching, home-field advantage and Interleague play.

Let's work backward ...

The Rays were 12-6 against the senior circuit after an 11-4 run to close out interleague play. And that included a three-game sweep against the Cubs in June.

On the other hand, the Phils were a disappointing 4-11 against the American League, including a 2-7 skid against three of the best-hitting teams on the junior circuit - Boston, Texas and the Angels. And though they didn't meet this season, the Phils are a team Tampa has handled over the years with a 10-5 mark against them.

With Tampa getting to host the series to its advantage, I doubt Philadelphia will be able to steal home-field advantage; and even if it does, there's no reason to believe the Rays can't scoot up to Citizens Bank Park and steal one in Philly. Bottom line is the Rays posted the best home record in the majors, and with all the caroms off the catwalks, Tropicana Field is a strong candidate for baseball's first postseason replay.

With the type of pitching Tampa puts on the hill, an aggressive like Philadelphia could be in a lot of trouble. Seriously, who would have thought Matt Garza - a once go-against pitcher - would be named ALCS MVP? You mix in some James Shields, Andy Sonnanstine and Scott Kazmir and this is a dangerous rotation. I'd much rather have that rotation working for us, than the likes of one that includes Brett Myers and 45-year-old Jamie Moyer.

All the elements are there, and this preseason's 200-to-1 longshot is certainly in the right spot to finish the job with a World Series title.

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

LT Profits

Ohio +3.0

The Ohio Bobcats and Temple Owls are two teams that are not accustomed to the national television spotlight, so at least these Tuesday ESPN games are giving the smaller schools some exposure.

That said, we would not trust wither of these 2-5 teams as favorites, making Ohio virtually an automatic selection as underdogs. This is not to say that the Bobcats do not have merit here for other reasons, as at least they enter this contest on a positive note after winning 26-19 on the road at Kent State last week.

The Bobcats also have a respectable offense, as they are averaging 23.9 points and 370.9 total yards per game, including 240.7 passing yards on a good 7.1 yards per pass attempt. Thus, they are capable of hitting a few big plays vs. a Temple defense that is not as good vs. the pass (6.7 yards per attempt) as it is vs. the run (3.7 yards per rush).

Comparatively, the Owls are only averaging 17.1 points and 266.6 total yards per game, and their offense has gone downhill since losing starting quarterback Adam DiMichele for the season. His backup, Chester Stewart, has been abysmal, completing just 50 percent of his passes while averaging a poor 4.94 yard per attempt, with seven interceptions vs. only four touchdown passes.

A healthier Ohio squad is simply the better team right now, so take the points even on the road here.

Pick: Ohio +3

Scott Spreitzer

Atlanta Thrashers at Tampa Bay Lightning

I'm laying the price with the Lightning on Tuesday night. The transition from ESPN to the coaching box has not gone as well as Barry Melrose had hoped. His Lightning have played hard, but they have been on the wrong end of five, one-goal losses to start the season. TB enters with a 0-2-3 mark, but now faces a team that struggles offensively and one that should provide some openings for Tampa on the defensive end, also. Yes, the Lightning power play has struggled thus far, but they actually owned the league's fifth best power play unit last season. Defensively, Tampa is surely playing well enough to have won at least three of their five games. That defensive intensity will face a Thrashers' team that's scored a grand total of seven goals in their last four games. In fact, ATL has gone scoreless on 21 straight power plays. The Thrashers are "just what the doctor ordered" for Barry Melrose to pick up his first win in his first season back on the bench after a lengthy stay in the broadcast booth. I'm laying the price with the Lightning on Tuesday.

Play on: Tampa Bay

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

POINTWISE

TEMPLE 27 - Ohio U 13 - (ESPN2) -- Unnoticed Owl "D" has held 6-of-9 foes under 15 pts, & check allowing only 36, 91, & 55 RYs last 3 wks. OU just 110 RYpg in lined gms, altho QB Jackson has thrown for 9 TDs. TU stop unit the key.


THE GOLD SHEET

OHIO at TEMPLE...Even teams with 2-5 marks at midseason in the MAC can still harbor hopes of a league crown and possible bowl berth. So it is for Frank Solich's Ohio Bobcats, suddenly very alive in the MAC East after a recent 26-19 win over Kent State. It only made the Bobcats 1-2 in conference play, but with the power base in this year's MAC in the West, Solich's team is in the thick of things in the East, where every team already has at least two defeats. And there is reason for Solich to feel encouraged, as Ohio has rediscovered an infantry diversion with the emergence of RS frosh RB Donte Harden (323 YR last 3 games). That's provided a nice complement for elusive QB Boo Jackson, still learning on the job but improving with each game. Meanwhile, Solich's defense has weathered a rash of early-season injuries, with blitzing schemes helping turn around a TO ratio that was -5 thru the first 4 games. As for the Owls, they're hoping QB Adam DiMichele will be able to return from a recent shoulder injury, but the offense remains pedestrian, ranking 100th or worse in all major categories. And with the kicking game in a state of flux, and erratic backup QB Chester Stewart likely to see action if DiMichele can't go, Ohio may not need any help from the oddsmakers at the Linc.

TGS score forecast: OHIO 20 - Temple 17

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Alex Smart

Atlanta Thrashers @ Tampa Bay Lightning
PICK: Under 5.5

The Tampa Bay Lightining are a hard luck group that has lost 5 straight games, all of which came by just 1 goal. The Bolts are scoring an average of just 1.33 GPG, via a conservative defensive brand of hockey . The Bolts punchless attack can be attributed to a lack of viable scoring options behind the duo of Vincent LeCavalier and Martin .St.Louis. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Thrashers (2-2-1) are another team , that is having problems burying the biscuit of late. The Thrashers are a side that has only one player (Ilya Kovalchuk-52 G) that had more than 17 goals last season. Atlanta's lackluster offensive talent is becoming evident as they have scored just 7 goals in their L/4 games and have failed to convert on 21 straight power play opportunities.

Final notes & Key Trends: Atlanta has gone under in 9 of their L/10 road games dating back to last season. The Bolts have gone under in 12 of their L/17 home games going back to the 2007/8 campaign.

Goalie Matchup: Tampa Bay goalie Mike Smith is among the league leaders in save percentage (.944) and goals-against average (1.90). Atlanta goalie Kari Lehtonen has a 2.13 goals against average in 15 career starts versus the Lightning, including a 0.99 GAA in 4 games last season.

Play Under

Ohio Bobcats at Temple Owls

Points have certainly been at a premium this year in Philadelphia! The Temple Owls come in averaging just 6.0 PPG at home this season while allowing just 9.5 PPG. Are you kidding me? Their two home games have resulted in 12-9 and 7-3 finals. And no one is going to confuse this OU with Oklahoma as the Bobcats average just 17.6 PPG outside of Athens, almost a full touchdown less than their season average. Temple is 11-1 Under at home coming off an ATS loss, a run that stretches all the way back to 1992. 

Play on: Under

Anaheim Ducks at Toronto Maple Leafs
Prediction: Anaheim Ducks

Anaheim is 20-8 their last 28 vs. the Western Conference and they are and they are 10-1 vs. the Northeast division. The Ducks are 5-1 vs. losing teams. Toronto is 1-10 vs. Pacific Division teams and they are 0-6 vs. an opponent who scored 2 or less goals in their last game. The Maple Leafs are 5-14 at home when playing a team with a losing record in the first half of the year. PLAY ON ANAHEIM -

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Ben Burns

Washington Capitals @ Calgary Flames
PICK: Calgary Flames

The Flames should be the more "desperate" team in this matchup, as they've gotten off to a slow start. They know that it's important not to fall further behind, particularly with a pair of road games on deck. The Capitals have managed to split their two road games but have given up 10 goals in the process. Neither team has played since Saturday. That figures to work in the Flames' favor. Looking at the last couple of seasons and we find Calgary at a respectable 23-17 when playing with two day's rest in between games. During the same stretch, the Capitals were a money-burning 11-21 when playing with two day's rest in between games. Look for a big effort from the Flames here as they avenge last season's loss at Washington and earn the valuable two points. Consider Calgary. (1*)
