(9) Michigan State (19-4, 11-8-1 ATS) at Michigan (15-9, 10-8-1 ATS)

Michigan takes on its second consecutive Top 10 opponent when it entertains Michigan State, which brings a perfect Big Ten road record into Chrisler Arena in Ann Arbor.

The Wolverines went to No. 1 Connecticut on Saturday and took a one-point lead into halftime but couldn’t finish the job, losing 69-61 while cashing easily as a 16½-point road favorite. Although it has covered the spread in back-to-back outings, Michigan is just 2-6 SU in its last eight, with both victories coming in Big Ten home games (68-59 over Northwestern and 71-51 over Penn State). The Wolverines have scored 61 points or fewer in all six losses during their 2-6 funk.

The Spartans are coming off near-identical blowout home wins over Minnesota (76-47) and Indiana (75-47), cashing in both contests to move to 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five. In the last two wins, Michigan State gave just 28 field goals in 94 attempts (29.8 percent), and they’ve held six of 11 conference foes to 58 points or less.

Michigan State sits alone atop the Big Ten standings at 9-2 (6-4-1 ATS), two games ahead of both Ohio State and Illinois. Most impressively, Tom Izzo’s squad is 5-0 (4-0-1 ATS) in Big Ten road games and it is 7-0 in true road contests this season (5-0-1 ATS in lined action). Michigan is 5-6 in conference (4-7 ATS), including 4-2 SU and ATS at home.

These rivals met just once last year, with Michigan State rolling to a 77-62 home win but coming up just short as a 15½-point favorite. The host has won the last five meetings (4-1 ATS) in this rivalry and is 8-2 (7-3 ATS) in the last 10.

In addition to the Spartans’ ATS hot streaks of 4-1 in Big Ten play and 5-0-1 on the road, they’re 5-0-1 ATS as a favorite of less than eight points this season and 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games after a victory of more than 20 points. However, they’ve failed to cash in four consecutive Tuesday outings. Conversely, despite its 2-5 ATS slump in conference action, Michigan is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 at home and 10-4-1 ATS in its last 15 on Tuesday, but the Wolverines are 0-3-1 ATS as an underdog of less than eight points

Michigan State has topped the total four consecutive road games, but the under is 6-1 in its last seven on Tuesday and 12-5-1 in its last 18 following a victory of more than 20 points. Also, Michigan is on “under” stretches of 4-0 overall, 16-5-1 in Big Ten play, 4-1-1 on Tuesday and 9-3-1 after a SU defeat.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER


(10) Marquette (20-3, 10-7-1 ATS) at (13) Villanova (19-4, 12-7 ATS)

Marquette will try to rebound from its first Big East loss of the season when it hits the road for the third consecutive game in a battle against red-hot Villanova at The Pavilion.

The Golden Eagles kicked off the conference season with a 79-72 home victory over then-No. 15 Villanova on New Year’s Day and eventually got to 8-0 in Big East play before Friday’s last-second 57-56 loss at South Florida as an 8½-point road favorite. That defeat snapped Marquette’s 12-game overall win streak (8-2-1 ATS) going back to the non-conference campaign. It also marked the first time all season the Eagles were held under 60 points and the first time in Big East play they they’d scored fewer than 71.

Villanova topped the century mark for the second time this season in Saturday’s 102-85 pounding of Syracuse, covering easily as a 6½-point home favorite. The Wildcats have won five straight games (all against the Big East) and they’re also on a 7-0 ATS tear (all in conference). During the five-game winning streak, Jay Wright’s club has averaged 80.8 ppg on 48 percent shooting while allowing 68.8 ppg on 36.5 percent shooting.

Marquette is tied with Louisville – both a half-game behind UConn – in the Big East race with a 9-1 SU mark (7-3 ATS), including 4-1 on the highway (3-2 ATS). Villanova is in fifth place at 7-3 SU and ATS, including 4-1 SU and ATS in their two home venues (The Pavilion on campus and the Wachovia Center in nearby Philadelphia).

Including last month’s seven-point win at home, Marquette has won three straight and four of five against Villanova since 2002, cashing in all five contests (four times as a favorite). In last year’s trip to The Pavilion, the Eagles rolled to an 85-75 victory as a 1½-point road chalk.

The Golden Eagles are on a bunch of ATS hot streaks, including 8-3 overall, 12-5 on the highway (5-1 last six), 15-6 in Big East action, 4-1-1 after a SU loss, 6-2-1 after a non-cover and 5-0 against winning teams. Meanwhile, in addition to its 7-0 ATS run (all in Big East action), Villanova is on pointspread upticks of 4-0 at home, 6-0 versus teams with a winning record and 9-3 as a favorite of less than 15 points.

Marquette is 4-1 SU and ATS against Top 25 teams and the Wildcats are 2-3 against ranked competition (3-2 ATS, including three straight spread-covers).

The over is on streaks of 5-2 for Villanova overall, 8-3 for Villanova against Big East rivals and 4-1 in this rivalry. However, the under is on stretches of 20-7 for the Wildcats at home, 5-2 for the Wildcats on Tuesday, 10-4 for the Wildcats after a SU win, 6-0 for the Wildcats after scoring 100 points or more in the previous game, 5-2 for Marquette on the road and 5-1 for Marquette on Tuesday.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NONE


(12) Clemson (19-3, 8-8-1 ATS) at Boston College (18-7, 11-9 ATS)

Two ACC rivals that had winning streaks snapped over the weekend will try to get back on track when Boston College hosts Clemson at the Conte Forum.

The Tigers took a three-game SU and ATS winning streak into Saturday’s home game against Florida State, including a stunning 27-point victory over fourth-ranked Duke on Wednesday. However, Clemson blew a 15-point lead with less than 10 minutes to play and fell to the Seminoles 65-61 as a nine-point home chalk. Since starting the season 16-0, the Tigers have split their last six games both SU and ATS, all against ACC competition.

After an ugly four-game SU and ATS losing skid that came on the heels of a shocking upset at then-No. 1 North Carolina, Boston College saved its season with a five-game winning streak (4-1 ATS). However, the Eagles’ run ended in Sunday’s 93-76 blowout loss at Wake Forest as an 11-point road underdog.

Clemson is one of four ACC teams with a 5-3 conference record (4-3-1 ATS), including 2-1 SU and ATS on the road. Boston College is 6-4 in the ACC (5-5 ATS), and after losing their first two conference home games (0-2 ATS) the Eagles have won two straight at Conte Forum (1-1 ATS).

This rivalry has belonged to the home team, which has won all six regular-season meetings going back to 2003 (3-1-2 ATS). Last year, Clemson rolled to a 78-56 victory as a 10½-point home chalk, then blitzed the Eagles out of the ACC tournament with an 82-48 romp as a nine-point favorite. The Tigers are 5-0-2 ATS all-time against B.C., and the favorite is 4-1-2 ATS.

Clemson’s pointspread trends include 4-1 on the road, 7-3-1 in ACC action and 7-1 on the highway against teams with a winning record. Boston College is 8-2-1 ATS in its last 11 on Tuesday, but 1-4 ATS in its last five as a host.

The last five meetings in this rivalry have stayed under the total, and the under is also on stretches of 7-2 for Clemson overall, 5-2 for Clemson in ACC play, 4-0 for Clemson against winning teams and 5-0 for the Eagles against squads with a winning record. However, the over is on runs of 5-0 for the Tigers on the road, 5-1-1 for Boston College overall, 21-7 for Boston College at home and 7-3-1 for Boston College on Tuesday.

ATS ADVANTAGE: CLEMSON


NBA

San Antonio (34-15, 24-23-2 ATS) at New Jersey (24-28, 28-24 ATS)

Fresh off Sunday’s impressive upset victory at Boston, the Spurs continue their brutal eight-game road trip when the make their only visit of the season to Continental Airlines Arena for a clash with the Nets, who have lost 12 consecutive games to San Antonio.

The Spurs went to Boston after a four-day layoff and knocked off the defending champs 105-99 as a 6½-point road underdog. San Antonio is 9-2 SU in its last 11 and 5-0-1 ATS in its last six, averaging 106.2 points per game in those six games, including scoring 105 or more five times. Also, the Spurs have won nine of 12 on the road (8-3-1 ATS).

New Jersey had a four-game SU and ATS winning streak snapped in Sunday’s 101-84 loss at Orlando, falling short as a 13-point underdog. The Nets have scored 88 points or fewer in four of their last eight games, and although they’ve cashed in three straight home games, they’re just 7-10 SU in their last 17 at Continental Airlines Arena. In fact, Lawrence Frank’s troops have a better record on the road (13-13, 17-9 ATS) than at home (11-15 SU and ATS).

San Antonio defeated the Nets for the 12th straight time on Jan. 23, holding on for a 94-91 victory but never threatening to cover as an 11½-point home favorite. Despite that non-cover, the Spurs are 14-3-1 ATS in the last 18 meetings, including eight consecutive wins and covers in New Jersey. The favorite is 4-1-1 ATS in the last six clashes and the visitor is 5-1-1 ATS in the last seven.

The Spurs are on ATS runs of 4-0-1 on the highway and 12-5-2 when playing on one day of rest, but despite Sunday’s upset win of the Celtics, they’re still just 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 against the Eastern Conference and 4-11-2 ATS in their last 17 against the Atlantic Division. New Jersey has cashed in 14 of its last 20 games after a double-digit loss, but otherwise the Nets are on ATS slides of 7-15-2 against the Southwest Division and 4-13-1 on Tuesday.

For San Antonio, the over is on streaks of 6-0 overall, 5-0 on the road, 4-1 against the Atlantic Division, 4-1-1 on Tuesday and 4-0 when playing after one day off. Conversely, the Nets are riding under stretches of 5-1 overall, 8-3 at home, 4-1 after a SU loss, 4-0 against the Western Conference, 4-0 against winning teams and 4-1 when playing on one day of rest. Finally, the last four Nets-Spurs clashes have stayed low, and the under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in New Jersey.

ATS ADVANTAGE: SAN ANTONIO and UNDER


Denver (34-17, 28-22-1 ATS) at Miami (27-23, 23-25-2 ATS)

The Nuggets continue an eight-game road trip with a stop at American Airlines Arena in South Beach as they look to knock off the Heat for the eighth consecutive time.

Denver has been idle since Saturday, when its four-game winning streak came to an end in an embarrassing 114-70 loss at New Jersey as a 2½-point road favorite. The Nuggets, who had averaged 113 ppg during their four-game winning streak, hadn’t scored fewer than 81 points in a game this season and shot just 35.6 percent from the field. Despite that effort, Denver is still 7-2 in its last nine games (3-3 on the road).

Miami enters this contest in a 2-4 SU and ATS funk, most recently edging Charlotte 96-92 on Sunday but failing to cover as an eight-point favorite. On the bright side, the Heat have won five of their last six home games (4-2 ATS). For the season, Dwyane Wade and Co. are 17-8 at home, but 11-13-1 ATS, averaging 96.5 ppg and allowing 92 ppg.

The Nuggets routed the Heat 108-97 in Denver on Jan. 7, covering as a 5½-point favorite to move to 7-0 SU and 5-2 ATS in the last seven series meetings, including 3-0 in Miami (2-1 ATS). In last year’s clash in South Beach, the Nuggets needed overtime to escape with a 114-113 victory as a 5½-point road chalk. The host has covered in the last four series battles.

Denver has failed to cash in six of its last seven when playing on two days’ rest, but it is otherwise on ATS streaks of 4-1 after both a SU and ATS loss and 6-2 after a double-digit defeat. Miami is on ATS runs of 7-0 on Tuesday, 7-1 when playing on one day of rest and 5-2 against the Western Conference, but it is 14-32-3 ATS in its last 49 games after a SU victory.

The over is on streaks of 4-1 in this rivalry, 5-1 for Miami overall, 7-1 for Miami against the Western Conference, 24-8-1 for Miami against the Northwest Division, 4-1 for Denver on the road, 7-3 for Denver on the road 11-4 for Denver against the Eastern Conference, 4-1 for Denver against the Southeast Division and 5-0 for Denver after a non-cover.

ATS ADVANTAGE: DENVER and OVER

Clemson vs. Boston College    
Play: Clemson -3.5         

Clemson is 19-3 on the year which puts them 11th in the country and has played well on the road with 5 wins in 6 games. Boston College is playing a little bit below that with an 18-7 record and is just 11-3 at home. Look for the Tigers of Clemson to ground the Golden Eagles of Boston College. Play Clemson

Big Al

Marquette vs. Villanova     
Play: Villanova -4.5/-108     

At 7:30 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Villanova Wildcats minus the points over Marquette, as Villanova falls into a 57% ATS system of mine. What we want to do is play on any .667 (or better) single-digit home favorite, off back-to-back wins, if it covered its last game, and has won at least 30 of its previous 40 home games, and is now matched up against a .750 (or better) conference foe off a straight-up loss. In its last game, Villanova toppled then-No. 20-ranked Syracuse 102-85 for its fifth straight win, and now faces a 20-3 Marquette squad that was upset by South Florida its last time out. That defeat snapped a 12-game win streak for the Golden Eagles, and I look for Villanova to send Marquette to its second straight loss tonight. Lay the points.

Michigan St

Under is 4-0 in Spartans last 4 road games following three or more consecutive home games.

Over is 4-0 in Spartans last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

Over is 4-0 in Spartans last 4 road games.

Under is 6-1 in Spartans last 7 Tuesday games.

Under is 12-5-1 in Spartans last 18 games following a SU win of more than 20 points.

Michigan

Under is 4-0 in Wolverines last 4 overall.

Under is 4-1-1 in Wolverines last 6 Tuesday games.

Bob Harvey

Detroit Red Wings -175

After going winless over the final two weeks of January, the Red Wings have turned things around. They'll go for their fifth straight win tonight when they face the Nashville Predators.

More offense has keyed Detroit's resurgence as the Hockeytown skaters have scored 20 goals in its last four games.

The scoring outburst has been keyed by the Wings big two, Pavel Datsyuk and Marian Hossa. Hossa scored for the fourth consecutive game Sunday in the win over the Pens. He's also "lit the lamp" six teams during the four game winning streak and has 30 goals on the year. Datsuyk has a team leading 65 points, including 43 helpers.

Defensively, Detroit is still one of the league's worst penalty-killing teams at 77.8 percent, but that may not matter against a Predators club that hasn't scored a PP goal in six straight games.

Red Wings netminder Ty Conklin is coming off a shutout of Pittsburgh, his sixth whitewash of the season but he's 0-2 with a 3.54 GAA.

Dan Ellis struggled in his most recent outing allowing three biscuits in the basket on just 21 shots. Over his last seven starts he's 1-5- with a 3.50 GAA.

Detroit is rolling right now and it's tough to go against them at this point. Lay the lumber tonight as they cash in against Nashville.

NEW YORK KNICKS at GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
Take: Over

The uptempo Knicks average 104 ppg, fifth most in the NBA, but allow 106 ppg -- fouth most in the league. Oddsmakers still haven't been able to adjust, as the Knicks are on a 6-0 run over the total. Golden State is second in scoring and allows 111 ppg -- most in the NBA. They've allowed 110 or more points in four of the last five games, and here comes the "push it up the floor" Knicks. These teams have already met and with a total of 224, the final score was 138-125 -- 39 points over the total. Play the Knicks/Warriors over the total.

Play on: Marquette over Villanova

HC Jay Wright (Villanova) has the Main Liners up and running, earning seven straight ATS covers with just one SU loss to highly rated Connecticut in that time span. Earlier in the season, the visiting Warriors defeated Villanova 79-72, as historically the Cats have a difficult time against this foe. Fundamentally, HC Wright is accruing strong play at the guard position, but Marquettes strength is their outstanding guards, which includes AA James. Realize, the Nova Vegas numbers are difficult to buck, but the Warriors are 5-0 ATS in this series. Further, Marquette shows at 7-0 ATS versus clubs with a .600 winning mark and 15-6 ATS against the Big East.

Play On: Hofstra

A Colonial Conference clash tips off at the David Mack Sports Complex with Hofstra (15-9, 7-6) plays host to Old Dominion (15-8, 8-5) in a battle for tournament seeding. The Pride has performed well, going 56-13 SU of late, including 6-1 ATS as dog of less than 6 points. In addition, Hofstra is 5-1 ATS when seeking revenge off a win this season. Look for the avenging team in this series to improve to 12-2 ATS here this evening. Grab the points with the Pride.

Mich State @ Michigan
Play: Michigan State -3

Tuesday's free opinion is Michigan State to get past Michigan. I definitely like what John Beilein has accomplished this season with the youthful Wolverines, but they're still a year away. Raymer Morgan is still likely out for the Spartans, and I can't therefore step out with the road team here, but the price is short enough for me to at least lean Michigan State's way.

TCU at UNLV
Prediction: UNLV

TCU got off to a fast start with a couple of upsets including an 80-73 thumping of UNLV but ..... the Frogs have lost L4 avgg just 55 ppg. Rebs have dropped last two in OT and have virtually played themselves out of an at large bid. UNLV will be resolved to the win MWC tourney in March if they hope to dance and no better time to start building some momentum than here. A lot of points but with revenge and MWC home faves going 14-5, UNLV gets minor nod.

Vancouver Canucks at St. Louis Blues
Prediction: Vancouver Canucks

After losing 8 straight game's the Canucks have won their last 2 games, out scoring the opposition 11-6 in the process. There aren't many stats that are in their favor but their goalie, Roberto Luongo has been playing better as has Mats Sundin. The Canucks have played very well vs. Blues over the last few meetings. The Blues have been very inconsistent and will struggle vs. a Canucks team that found their legs. St. Louis is 1-3 in the last 4 meetings vs. Vancouver. Play on the Vancouver Canucks -.

Jeff Benton

For Tuesday’s free play in college basketball, we’ll grab the points with Michigan against Michigan State.

Hard to argue with the Spartans’ sterling record on the road in Big Ten play (5-0 SU, 4-0-1 ATS), not to mention the fact they’ve won all seven of their true road contests this season. That said, the last two teams Michigan State has faced that play the frustrating style of offense that Michigan plays – Penn State and Northwestern – actually defeated the Spartans in East Lansing!

The Wolverines also come into this game off a very good showing at No. 1 UConn, as they gave the Huskies all they could handle in Saturday’s 69-61 loss as a 16½-point underdog (I called that one, giving out Michigan as a 5 Dime winner). Prior to that effort, Michigan pummeled Penn State 71-51 as a 4½-point home favorite – the same Penn State that beat the Spartans at Michigan State. As a matter of fact, the Wolverines have three wins and covers in their last four home games, including a 68-59 rout of Northwestern (which won 70-63 at Michigan State three days earlier).

Finally, home court has meant a lot in this rivalry over the past four years, with the home team taking all five meetings (4-1 ATS), with an average margin of victory of 13 points per game. Throw in the fact that Michigan has held its own against Top 10 teams this season – 3-1 ATS, including outright wins over UCLA and Duke – and I’m willing to play the home underdog, as Michigan State is way overdue for a conference road loss.

4♦ MICHIGAN

Matt Rivers

For Tuesday take the Spurs in New Jersey.

There is nothing worse than backing an NBA side that looks too easy as more times than not it's not but on a small play today I will do just that on San Antonio.

The Nets have been better than people expected with a blossoming stud in Devan Harris and guys like Vince Carter and Brook Lopez who are very good but let's be honest New Jersey is not close to being on the level of the Spurs as Duncan, Ginobli and Parker are just rolling right now.

Greg Popovich' team just took care of business in Boston and very quietly has been phenomenal and sort of under the radar ever since the poor 1-4 start to the season. These guys have gone 33-11 ever since and that includes the loss two games ago when none of the Big Three took the court in the loss at Denver so in actuality this team has prevailed in 33 of the last 43 games which is as good as it gets.

New Jersey is at home and should compete as they have won and covered four of five but they are still well inferior today and have not been that good at home at 11-15, which is actually worse than on the road (13-13).

Look for a rested San Antonio team to play some lockdown defense and get the job done as they usually seem to do.

Craig Davis

Revenge is the key here, as TCU beat the Rebs back in January, 80-73, despite not having as much talent as tonight’s home team.

I realize this line seems a little lengthy, but this team is just waiting to explode and pummel someone… and it just so happens TCU is the opponent tonight.

UNLV has dropped two in a row after winning four straight, but both losses were in OT. You can bet they will do everything in their power to make sure this game doesn’t go to overtime as well.

Major blowout tonight as the Rebs win by 20.

Marquette +5' at VILLANOVA 

Nailed our FREE winner with the Sixers on Monday and have delivered a comp winner 11 of the last 16 days. Tonight we've got another one for you, this time from the college hardwood as we play Marquette at Villanova.

Marquette was riding its eight-game winning streak in Big East play and might have been a little too cocky when they went to South Florida on Friday night. The Golden Eagles went on the road and lost 57-56 as an 8 1/2-point road favorite. Now they'll completely focused when they go to Philly to play Villanova.

Marquette was on a 12-game overall winning streak (8-2-1 ATS) before going down to South Florida and they were held to less than 60 points for the first time this season and it was the first time in Big East play they scored less than 71 points.

Villanova has already faced the Golden Eagles once this season and lost 79-72 at Marquette. The Golden Eagles have won three straight over Villanova and four of the last five, getting the cash in all five games. In last year's trip to Villanova, the Golden Eagles got an 85-75 win as a 1 1/2-point road favorite.

Marquette is riding a 4-1 SU and ATS streak against Top-25 teams lately and we are looking for these guys to respond after that tough loss Friday night. Let's grab the points and play the Golden Eagles tonight.

TORONTO vs. MINNESOTA

Both stars for these teams, Chris Bosh and Al Jefferson are both hurt.The Raptors, losers of six straight, will be without Bosh tonight as they try to extend an eight-game winning streak over the Timberwolves team that will be without Jefferson for an extended period of time.On Sunday night, Jefferson had to be helped off the court in the final 30 seconds as Minnesota (17-33) lost 101-97 to New Orleans. Jefferson is the team's leading scorer and rebounder at 23.1 points and 11 boards per game. He is out indefinitely with a torn ACL in his right knee, and a date for surgery has not been set. Forward Brian Cardinal will move into the starting lineup in place of Jefferson. Bosh, who leads the Raptors with 22.7 points and 9.5 rebounds per game, has missed two straight contests. With the All-Star out, the Raptors lost their sixth straight Saturday night, 78-70 against Memphis. Joey Graham has started in place of Bosh, scoring a total of 17 points in two games.Toronto (19-34) continues to slide in the Eastern Conference, losing 13 of 16. Minnesota, meanwhile, is one of the league's worst teams and has had no success against the Raptors in recent years, losing eight straight in the series.Toronto has scored 85 points or fewer in three games during its current six-game skid, and turned in its worst offensive performance of the season in its last outing.The Raptors shot a season-low 29.5 percent from the field versus the Grizzlies. The Timberwolves have lost three straight at home after winning six of their previous seven and have dropped six of seven overall. Their top scorer without Jefferson is Randy Foye, but he is averaging just 15.0 points on 28.6 percent shooting in five games this month. Without their star players, both of these teams will continue to struggle on offense.TAKE UNDER 193 Toronto/Minnesota

Sacramento Kings at Dallas Mavericks
Prediction: Sacramento Kings

Yes, the Mavericks have revenge from a loss suffered at the hands of the Kings in their last meeting. However, the Mavericks are now short-handed without Jason Terry. Even though Dirk Nowitzki continues to amaze, the Mavericks barely squeaked by the Bulls in overtime in their most recent game. The reason for that had a lot to do with Terry's injury as he tried to play through it. He won't even be on the floor tonight and, as bad as the Kings record is, Sacramento has been competitive in most all of their recent games. They can absolutely hang tight here against the Mavs. The double digit line is offering fantastic line value to the Kings. Consider a small play on Sacramento on Tuesday night.
