Friday Service Plays

Re: Friday Service Plays

Vernon Croy

Cincinnati U vs. Louisville   
Play: Over 47

Both of these defenses have struggled against the pass this season but they have been good against the run which will force both teams to air the ball out in this game. The Bearcats defense has allowed an average of 248 pypg on the road this season while the Cardinals defense has allowed an average of 225 pypg overall this season. The Bearcats defense has struggled in their only 2 games on grass this season with their opponents averaging 470.5 ypg and 46 ppg and the Cardinals defense has struggled over their last 3 games with opponents averaging 29.7 ppg against them. Offensively these teams have the ability to strike quickly and both of these teams are averaging over 26 ppg this season. The O/U is 6-1-1 for the Bearcats in their last 8 road games against a team with a winning record and the O/U is 7-1-1 for the Bearcats in their last 9 games played on grass. Take the Over.

Scott Spreitzer

William & Mary at Penn State
Prediction: Penn State

A lot of young players received a ton of playing time for PSU coach Ed DeChellis last season.

I expect last year's growing pains to turn into a top-five conference finish this season. Sophomore PG Talor Battle leads the way. He played in 30 of 31 games as a true frosh and led the team in assists while finishing third in scoring. Battle will benefit from some big shooting guards around him. PSU adds a pair of 6'5 scorers in Chris Babb and Cammeron Woodyard. While it make take a few games to show their worth in conference play, they'll have little trouble taking apart an out-manned Bill & Mary squad.

The Nittany Lions don't have Geary Claxton any more, but the team owns plenty of returning talent on the wings and on the blocks. Tonight, they'll open against the Tribe.

Bill & Mary returns a decent guard in David Schneider, but not much else in the backcourt. I'm also interested in seeing how Schneider fares in this one. The junior guard was a three-point jumpshot Charlie last season. Reports are saying that he has been negatively affected by the increased three-point defense and he will be trying to shoot over the big PSU backcourt. As a team, the Tribe finished the season with a poor 41.7% field goal mark. They haven't brought in the type of player to turn those numbers around too quickly. It's rebuilding time for Tony Shaver. I expect his squad to finish 11th in the CAA, just ahead of UNC-Wilmington.

Strong spot for Penn State and I'm laying the points on Friday.

MTi Sports

Game: Detroit Pistons at Los Angeles Lakers
Prediction: Los Angeles Lakers

The Pistons are 0-8 ATS (-10.4 ppg) after a win in which Tayshaun Prince had more rebounds than points and 0-7 ATS (-11.1 ppg) on the road after a win in which Richard Hamilton played more than 40 minutes. The Lakers are 8-0 ATS (8.6 ppg) with at least one day of rest after a win in which they had an assist to turnover ratio of at least two and 8-0 ATS (9.0 ppg) since December 25, 2007 after two away games in which Vladimir Radmanovic took fewer than 10 shots in each. Consider laying the points.

Re: Friday Service Plays

John Ryan

Game: Rider at St. Josephs
Prediction: St. Josephs

Ai Simulator 3* graded play on St. Josephs AiS shows a 79% probability that STJ will win this game over Rider by a minimum of 11 points. Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 49-21 ATS for 70% since 1997. Play on a home team that had a good record last season with a winning percentage of 60% to 80% playing a team that had a winning record and is a team from a second tier division 1-A conference against a team from a mid-major conference. Given that St. Joes is returning 4 starters, but that the bench players are somewhat of an unknown, playing against Rider will be a advantageous opponent to face. Starters will be Nivins, Carr, Governs, Williamson, and the new comer to the starting lineup Hilliard. In recent years the team has been a great 3-point shooting team that could simply blow out opponents in big bursts. This version will be a more grind it out physical team, which is not the worst thing for their conference style of play. Govens is a proven 3-point shooter and the extra distance of the 3-point arc will not affect his percentage and in summary will not affect any of the top shooters in the country. But, with just Govens a 3-point threat the style of play will be focused more in the paint. St. Josephs will be the type of team that will benefit from the longer 3-point distance. Take St. Joes.

Marc Lawrence

Play On: New Jersey Nets

Nets host the Hawks in an Eastern Conference clash Friday night with New Jersey off an eleven-point home loss in its last game against the Pacers while Atlanta saw it's 6-0 start come to a halt in a 1-point loss to the Celtics in its last game. That sets the table for tonight's contest at the Nets are 11-1 SU and 8-4 ATS as a host in this series, They are also 9-0 ATS in games in which the Hawks own a win percentage of .600 or greater on the season. Grab the points and stay at home with New Jersey here this evening.

Re: Friday Service Plays

Drew Gordon

Utah at CHARLOTTE +6

Bettors have a tendency to overreact to injury news, especially in the NBA, where the loss of one player (unless he's a superstar) can be made up by spreading the ball around. Tonight's Utah/Charlotte game is a perfect example, as we know Jason Richardson will be out with knee inflammation, but I still like the Bobcats regardless and here's why:

Despite losing their last two at home, the Bobcats did beat the mighty Hornets in the game prior to those losses. How did they do it? The same way they're going to grab the cash in tonight's contest... Defense and a lot of it! Bobcats are allowing just 90 ppg at home thus far this season, and have looked damn good doing it. Only 1 out of their 5 home opponents has scored more than 89 points, and Utah has been far from impressive on the highway (averaging 92 ppg away) including an ugly 95-87 loss at Washington two days ago.

Also, one has to consider the absence of Memhet Okur, which leaves the Jazz starting rookie Koufos at center. That's music to Okafor's ears, as he should easily dominate the softish Koufos in this match up. Not only that, but AK-47 is listed as questionable, leaving Utah's usually stacked frontcourt a shell of its former self (at least in this match up).

Bottom line, try not to overreact to the news Richardson is out, as the Bobcats are solid enough at home to keep this game well within the number. Also, the fact this is Utah's 3rd road game in 4 nights could signal some fatigue tonight. In the end, the Bobcats may not win, but they sure as hell grab the cash.

Take Charlotte plus the points over Utah in this NBA match up.

3♦ CHARLOTTE


Portland at NEW ORLEANS -7

Interesting match up here, as it may seem hard to go against a suddenly surging Trail Blazers squad in this one, but fact remains, the play here rest squarely on the Hornets and here's why:

First and foremost, the Hornets are NOT happy about losing to the Lakers Wednesday 93-86 in front of their home crowd. They played a sloppy game, that included 17 turnovers, and never led in that contest, falling back by as many as 23 points at one point. Listen guys, if ever the Hornets are going to come out with an axe to grind, it'll be tonight.

Second, this is simply not a good match up for Portland, because they have no one on their roster who can stick with Chris Paul. Steve Blake definately can't cover him, and good luck with rookie Rudy Fernandez as well! All you have to do is pop in the tape of their last meeting, a 96-81 shellacking of the Blazers by the Hornets, and you'll see a team that was unable to contend with the Hornets backcourt.

Finally, there's a couple trends that stick out, but none more than the fact the home team is an outstanding 10-1 ATS over their last 11 meetings! Not only that, but not surprsingly, the favorite is 7-3 ATS over the last 10 times these two have met! Look guys, in the end, this is a bad match up for Portland, who catches the Hornets in redemption mode after getting beaten by the Lakers in their last home game. Hornets roll!

Take New Orleans comfortably over Portland in this NBA match up.

2♦ NEW ORLEANS

Chris Jordan

Orlando at DALLAS -1'

Dallas may be the home team in this one, but since the Mavericks were in Chi-town last night for a date with the Bulls – not to mention a 98-91 loss – I like our chances with the Magic tonight.

After all, the Mavs are mired in a 1-5 ATS skid overall and have lost four straight to the books at home. Orlando, which is 5-3 on the year, is on ATS runs of 4-0 against teams with a losing record – the Mavs are 2-6 –and 11-4 on the road against teams with a losing home mark.

Orlando is also on a 4-0 spread run in Dallas and has covered six of the last eight meetings overall. Toss in the fact the underdog has bagged the cash seven of the last eight times these two have met and the road team has covered four in a row and it’s crystal clear why we’re taking the Magic tonight.

3♦ MAGIC

Houston Rockets at San Antonio Spurs

The understaffed Spurs continued to struggle without two of their key players, point guard Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. San Antonio is a nasty 1-8 ATS in its last 9 games and just 2-5 ATS in its last 7 against Houston in San Antonio. Go with the Rockets against the impaired Spurs.

Houston Rockets -5½

Mr A

Cincinnati @ Louisville

Louisville Cardinals have struggle in their last two games, but have played well versus the Cincinnati Bearcats. Louisville has won the last five meetings and nine of the last 10, going 8-2 ATS. Expect Louisville to step-up their performance and make this a close battle at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

Louisville Cardinals +3½


New York Knicks -8
Boston Celtics  -10
Detroit Pistons  +9½

Denver Nuggets at Boston Celtics

Denver Nuggets have dropped ten of the last 11 versus Boston in Beantown, 29-6 all-time. The Celtics are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings against the Nuggets at TD Banknorth Garden. Take the surging defending NBA champions and fired up Paul Pierce to seize their seventh straight victory.

Boston Celtics -10


Cincinnati Bearcats -3.5

Ivan Laflare

Philadelphia 76ers at Indiana Pacers
Play Indiana Pacers -1

It's Friday night and there are over 10 NBA games going on tonight, but there are two that you should play close attention too. The first one is the Sixers vs. the Pacers. The Pacers are 3-1 at home while the Sixers are (1-3) at home. Any true NBA fan knows that Conseco Field House is one of the hardest places for a road team to steal a win. The Pacers T.J. Ford is back looking like his old self; in a mid summer trade the Pacers dealt away Jermaine O'Neal to get their new starting point guard. T.J. is average 18 pts, 8 rebs, and 9 asst. a game. The Pacers are on a 3 game winning streak plus they will be getting back two of their injured stars, Troy Murphy and Danny Granger. The Pacers GM, Larry Bird has finally put together a team he could be proud of.

Atlanta Hawks at New Jersey Nets
Play Atlanta Hawks -2.5

The Hawks are the real deal this season. They only have one lost and it came from the defending champs Boston. Mike Bibby has is forming chemistry with his teammates after being acquired last season before the trade deadline. The Hawks have one the highest scoring backcourts with him and Joe Johnson. Over the last couple of season Joe has evolved into an all star, scoring over 24 points a game. But what surprises Hawk fans so much is the play of there young players. Al Horford and Marvin Williams are leading the team in rebounds. The Nets have not done a lot to improve this season; the team appears to be in the rebuilding stage. Hawks are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The birds are flying high in Atlanta.
