Houston Rockets at Milwaukee Bucks

The Houston Rockets have struggle away from home, just 3-8 in their last 11 road games, but have been sucessful against the Milwaukee Bucks. Houston has won eight straight meetings versus the Rockets and four of its last five at the Bradley Center. Go with the Rockets to continue their dominance over the Bucks. Houston is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games versus Milwaukee.

Houston Rockets -5½

Rider vs. Marist
Play: Marist +1.5

Ai Simulator 3* graded play on Marist as they host Rider slated to start at 7:30 EST. Marist has a 90% probability of getting between 40 and 44 total rebounds. Note that Marist is a solid 11-2 ATS (+8.8 Units) when they grab 40 to 44 rebounds in a game over the last 2 seasons. Rider is in a weak role noting they are 3-11 ATS (-9.1 Units) after having won 3 of their last 4 games over the last 2 seasons and HC Dempsey is 3-11 ATS (-9.1 Units) in road games after having won 3 of their last 4 games. Rider also in a weak money line role noting they are just 8-15 against the money line (-11.4 Units) versus poor pressure defensive teams forcing <=14 turnovers/game over the last 3 seasons.

Dennis Macklin

Austin Peay at Tennessee Tech
Prediction: Austin Peay

It's getting to that time of the year when the OVC starts playing three games in five nights. That's the situation tonight for several OVC teams including Austin Peay at Tenn Tech. The Guvs have lost last two roadies but are still 5-2 SU and ATS overall on the conference road. TTech has lost three of four at home. In Jan 22 first meeting, Peay win by 16 despite Tech knocking down 11-25 treys. In virtual pick 'em, Austin Peay rates solid nod here.

Sports Gambling Hotline

Kansas +4 at MISSOURI 

Tonight, take the points with Kansas, as there is no reason a team that has won the last 5 series meetings should be getting more than a basket.

Each time Missouri thinks they have the Jayhawks number, they get beat back by their conference rival, and tonight we expect history to repeat itself.

Mizzou is red-hot right now, but Kansas isn't too shabby either, as the Jayhawks have won their last 8 games, and KU has also covered in 5 of their 9 lined road games this season.

Sure Missouri is itching to end their long series drought, and maybe they will do so, but we just don't see a Missouri win coming by more than a basket tonight, making the points the play.

Play on the Jayhawks plus what we feel are a generous amount of points tonight in Columbia.

1&#9830; KANSAS

Jeff Alexander

1 Unit West Virginia/Pitt UNDER 136.5

Both of these teams are very good on the defensive end with WVU holding its opponents to 60.6 points and Pitt holding its opponents to 61.9 points per game this season. WVU has recorded 4 straight unders and it knows that if it wants a chance tonight, it is going to have to be at its best defensively. With Pitt scoring 79 in the first meeting, expect to see a much better defensive effort from the Mountaineers here. Pitt is 12-4 UNDER vs. top caliber teams - outscoring their opponents by 12+ points/game over the last 2 seasons with the average score totaling 131.2 in these spots. Pitt is also 8-1 UNDER after 3 straight wins by 10 points or more over the last 2 seasons. Bet the Under.

Dave Price

1 Unit Suns/76ers UNDER 212

With Phoenix playing at Detroit Sunday, I expect tired legs to effect the offense tonight to keep this one under. Philly has been under the century mark in 4 straight and 6 of its last 7. Philly is 7-3 Under in its last 10 games and the Under is a perfect 2-0 in this matchup in the last 2 meetings in Philly. Plays Under on any team (PHILADELPHIA) - after going under the total by 24 or more points total in their last three games, in a game involving two marginal winning teams (51% to 60%) are 79-39 the last 5 seasons. Philly is only allowing 92.8 ppg at home and I like its strong defense to limit the Suns offense tonight.

Big Al Mcmordie

Kansas at Missouri
Prediction: Missouri

At 9 pm, our member selection is on the Missouri Tigers minus the points over Kansas. The Jayhawks are off to a surprising 8-0 start in Big 12 Conference play (its best start in four seasons), but coach Bill Self's team is beginning its toughest stretch of its schedule, as it will play three of its next five games on the road, including a date at #2-ranked Oklahoma, which is a half-game in front of Kansas in the Conference standings. Although KU has won five straight in this "border war," getting its sixth straight victory will be tough tonight, as Mizzou has a strong 20-4 record, and has won three straight, and seven of eight. The Tigers have also defeated both of its Top 25-ranked opponents this year (including an upset of Texas in Austin). Overall, Missouri has won 15 straight home games, and I look for a blowout in Columbia tonight. Lay the points.

Scott Rickenbach

Houston Rockets at Milwaukee Bucks
Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks

The old "ugly home dog" theory is at work here. Who is going to want the Bucks in a spot like this? Michael Redd, Andrew Bogut, and Luke Ridnour are all out for the Bucks. The Rockets, conversely, are healthy. So, why invest in the Bucks in a spot like this? Because the wounded dog is often the one that bites the hardest! The fact is that these ugly home dog, where other players are getting rare opportunities or extra minutes, are often the precise situations where upsets happen. Milwaukee played much better than expected against Detroit on Saturday night but they fell just short in overtime and had to settle for a "moral" victory. Here, the Bucks once again have "upset" on their minds and they have confidence from how well they played versus the Pistons. This team can still put up points and that makes them very tough to put away...especially when they are on their home floor. Certainly we're not going to deny that the Rockets are the superior team in this match-up. However, we will say that it is the Bucks that hold the situational and motivational edges and that goes a long way in a game like this. Consider a small play on Milwaukee plus the points on Monday night.

Ron Raymond

MON vs CAL

Take your pick of the stat you want to confirm your pick on the Flames, as they are 11-2 SU as a home team - Last 3 years - After a non division game and coming off a 2 game Home stand. Plus, here?s a NHL SYSTEM that is 16-2 SU (Straight up) the Last 2 Years for the home favorite Flames; Whenever you have a NHL Team played as a home team (CGY) - Before a non division game - Coming off a 2 game Home stand and coming off a Home loss as a Favorite; The Home Fave has won 16 of the 18 games in this spot L2Y. Plus, the Flames are caught in a 4 game losing streak and a date with a Northeast opponent is what the doctor ordered tonight, as they are 10-0 SU vs. Northeast teams in their last 10 meetings at home. Plus, if you want to use the ?Revenge angle?, the Flames lost 4-1 to the Habs at the Bell Centre on Dec 9th and it was I game attended and it could be payback this evening at the Saddledome. Calgary dominated the first period in that game, but Halak was outstanding. Had it not been for Halak standing on his head in the first period, the outcome would have been different for Calgary. Play the Flames tonight.

Prediction:  Calgary 4 Montreal 1

Jeff Scott Sports

4 UNIT PLAY (Total Of The Week)

Pittsburgh/ West Virginia Over 136.5

The Over is 7-2 in Mountaineers last 9 games as a road underdog of 7.0-12.5, while the 5-0 in Panthers last 5 games following a SU win of more than 20 points and 25-6 in their last 31 games as a home favorite of 7.0-12.5. The Panthers offense is clicking on all cylinders right now as they come in having put up 92, 29 and 93 in their last 3 games. For the year the Pitt offense has put up 78 ppg overall, including 84.3 ppg at home overall and 85.6 ppg in their last 5 games at home. Pitt's games overall have averaged 140 ppg, while their home games have put up 145.6 ppg and their Big East home games have averaged 151.3 ppg, with all 4 of their Big East home games going Over tonight's total.West Virginia's offense is not as strong as that of of pitt's, but they still pup 72.7 ppg overall and 71 ppg on the road. Mountaineer road games have averaged 137.4 ppg. Both teams do play very good defense, but the way Pitt has been scoring lately I don't see them being held down too much, while the Aveage West Virginia offense should get their fair share of points vs a Pitt defense that has allowed 71 ppg in their last 5 games.  Should be a fun one to watch and the final should be somewhere in the mid to upper 140's. 


3 UNIT PLAYS

Furman/ Elon Over 121.5

This really seem like a low OU line, comsidering that in Furman's last 10 games the average OU line was 134, while in Elon's last 10 games the average OU line was 134.8. Furma's games this year have averaged 131.9 ppg overall, including 131.6 ppg on the road and 130.3 ppg in conference play. Elon's games this year have averaged 135.7 ppg overall, 139.6 ppg at home and 135.3 ppg in conference play. Furman has had problems at the offensive end as they are averaging just 59.9 ppg overall and 56.8 ppg on the road, but their offense has gone up a bit lately as they have averaged 64.6 ppg in their last 5 games. Furman should be able to generate some points tonight vs an Elon defense that has allowed 70.8 ppg overall (ranks 252nd) and 45.9% shooting (297th), plus they have allowed 72.4 ppg at home and 71.3 ppg in Southern play. Elon's offense has not been that great this year either (63.1 ppg overall), but they have scored 67.2 ppg at home. Like Elon, the Furman defense has been weak as well. The Paladins come in ranked 248th in scoring defense (70.7 ppg) and 325th in FG% defense (47.2%). Furman also allowes 74.6 ppg on the road and 70.4 ppg in Southern play. Both of these defense's are very weak and they will allow these mediocre offenses to have a good night. I truly feel the OU line should be a bout 8 or 9 points higher, as this game will be played in the 130's.


Power Angle Play

Loyola-MD +14 over SIENA

The Greyhounds are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Siena, while the Saints are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 home games vs. a team with a losing road record, plus the Underdog is 12-2 ATS in the last 14 meetings. despite losing their last 2 games, Loyola has still won 6 of their last 8. The Greyhounds may be 6-7 overall in the MAAC, but they have played pretty well in conference road games, going 4-3 and outscoring their foes by 2.4 ppg. Their only conference loss that was more than 14 points was back in December to Niagara.   Overall on the road this year Loyola has been outscored by 6.7 ppg, while they have been outscored by 8.7 ppg in their 7 conference losses. Siena comes in with a 12-1 confernece record, but outscoting MAAC foes by just 9.5 ppg, including outscoring them by 11.7 ppg in their home games. It's true that Siena is the calss of the MAAC, but Loyola has found a way to keep from getting blownt out this year, especially on the road and I feel they will find a way to keep this one in single digits.

POWER ANGLE For This Play--- Loyola-MD is 28-5 ATS in it's last 33 road games in February.


2 UNIT PLAYS

Rider -1.5 over MARIST

The Broncs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Metro Atlantic Athletic, while the Red Foxes are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and  4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games. Rider comes in on a roll as they have won 4 or their last 5 games, including a big win over league leader Siena their last time out. Marist comes in heading in the other direction as they have lost 7 in a row and and they are 3-10 within the confines of the MAAC. The defenses are about even in this one, but Rider has the clear offensive advantage and they hit the offenssive board much better than that of Marist, plus they have the momemtum. Add it all up and you get a solid Rider win, weven though they are play in enemy territory tonight.

West Virginia +8.5 over PITTSBURGH


1 UNIT PLAY

Kansas +4.5 over MISSOURI

The Jayhawks are 12th in FG% defense (38.2%), plus they are 14th in offensive FG% (48.6%) and they hit their free throws at a  72.9% (49th) clip, plus they are the better rebounding team. A couple of ingredients you need to win on the road.  Granted the Tigers can score a ton of points at home (89.3 ppg) and their overall defense is solid at home (62.4 ppg, but in their last 2 homes games they have allowed 86 and 72 points to Texas Tech and Baylor, respectively. Two teams that are iun the top 35 in scoring, just like the Jayhawks. Missouris ls also a horrible free throw shooting team, as they hit just 65.7% (259th) from the charity stripe and in what should be a close game that will cost them down the stretch. I see an outright upset here.

Boise State -1 over FRESNO STATE
