Monday Service Plays

Re: Monday Service Plays

Scott Rickenbach

Dallas Stars @ Columbus Blue Jackets
PICK: Under

This one has all the makings of a fierce, tight, low-scoring battle. The last time these teams met, the Stars pummeled the Blue Jackets and Columbus goalie Steve Mason ended up getting pulled from the game. However, he was suffering with mononucleosis and he's now back and as strong as ever. He and his Blue Jackets teammates will be looking for redemption as a result of that ugly loss. Also, the Stars are looking for redemption themselves after they just lost an ugly 6-2 game at Chicago.

As a result, both of these clubs are coming into this game looking for better defense and better goaltending. Additionally, this is a key game in the battle for the playoffs in the Western Conference. These two teams are tied in the #9 spot in the conference. The Stars Marty Turco has bounced back after a sluggish start to the season and, prior to the ugly loss to the Blackhawks, the Stars had been doing a great job in terms of holding opponents down with solid defense as well as excellent netminding. After a poor effort at Chicago, the Stars bounce back here, including Turco. That means one should consider a small play on the UNDER in Columbus on Monday night.

1 Unit on Siena -4

It's a bit of a down year for the Gaels and Siena won't make the mistake of taking them lightly again after nearly going down to them at home. Siena has dominated this matchup recently, winning all 5 meetings over the last 3 seasons, including a perfect 2-0 SU and ATS at Iona during this time frame. Siena is 7-4 SU at Iona since 1997 and a perfect 8-0 ATS in those lined games. Iona is just 3-11 ATS as a home underdog of 6 points or less or pick over the last 3 seasons and 3-11 ATS in home games revenging a road loss vs opponent over the last 3 seasons. Lay the number.

1 Unit on Pitt/UConn UNDER 135.5

Pitt is a perfect 7-0 UNDER when playing against a top-level team (Win Pct. > 80%) this season. The average point total in these games is 124.9. UConn is 15-5 UNDER in all lined games this season and 10-3 UNDER against conference opponents this season. Each of the last 2 meetings between these teams have gone under easily, with combined scores of 117 and 113. Bet the Under.

Texas at Texas A&M

Since suffering through a three-game SU/ATS losing streak, Texas has turned it around with back-to-back convincing league wins over Oklahoma State and Colorado. Tonight, they'll get a Texas A&M team that is currently mired in a three-game losing streak of its own. The Longhorns are 17-6 ATS the last three seasons off back-to-back conference wins and not to mention beat this same Aggiest team, 67-58, in Austin just last month. Lay the short number.

Play on: Texas

Siena at IONA +4 

Do not like this spot for Siena, who's coming off a blowout win over Manhattan, and could very well be in for a letdown tonight at Iona. A couple things bother me about this match up, but let's start with their last meeting - a 69-68 Siena SU win, but easy Iona cover as a 10-point road dog. You're very next thought should be: If Iona lost by just 1 point at Siena, what makes you think they can't cover tonight as a slight home dog?!

Situationally, the reverse is true for the Gaels, who got a much needed win at Loyola-Maryland in their last one. Iona shot nearly 48% in that match up and a return home should keep their offense rolling in this one. The Gaels have been up-and-down this season offensively (mostly down), but they proved more than capable in their last meeting with the Saints, and should be even better tonight at home.

From a match up standpoint, I was impressed with the Gaels getting a strong all around effort against Loyola-Maryland, with 5 players contributing 8 points or more. They'll need more of the same tonight, as we know the backcourt duo of Hansbrouck and Ubiles will get their points for Siena, but Iona should be able to counter with another strong effort from their frontcourt.

In the end, these two teams are closer than most people think, despite the difference in their records. Siena has proven plenty beatable on the road (4-7 ATS), and coming off an easy blowout home win could easily have them riding a little too high in the saddle (if you know what I mean). Iona proved a feisty opponent in their last meeting, as Siena barely scrapped by with a SU win, and I suspect they'll be just as feisty tonight at home.

Take Iona plus the points over Siena in this college hoops match up.

1♦ IONA

La. Tech +9' at NEW MEXICO ST.

For starters, New Mexico State has no business laying this kind of chalk against anyone. The Aggies have failed to cover in eight of their last 10 games, all against Western Athletic Conference opponents, and that includes a 1-5 ATS mark at home, all as a favorite. On the other hand, Louisiana Tech might be well below .500 in the standings, but the Bulldogs have been one of the better pointspread teams in the country, going 13-7 ATS overall, 10-4 ATS in the last 14 games, 6-1 ATS in their last seven on the road, 11-5 ATS as an underdog and 9-2 ATS when catching five points or more.

On top of that, La-Tech has cashed in each of its last two trips to Las Cruces, and the underdog is on a 6-2 ATS run in this rivalry.

Throw in the fact that the Bulldogs are 16-5 ATS as a road underdog since last year, 20-8 ATS in their last 28 WAC games and 6-0 ATS in their last six on Monday, and my money’s on the undervalued visitor and the better defensive team (La-Tech has held seven of its last eight opponents to 63 points or less).

2♦ LOUISIANA TECH

Matt Rivers

For Monday take Siena on the road.

Iona is clearly an improving program as they are no longer the total dreck they had been over the past few seasons and are somewhat dangerous. But Siena is still the clear superior team and should be able to take care of business today.

The Saints are still the class of the conference at 14-1 and 20-6 overall. Being on the road won't make this thing easy for Fran McCaffery's group but they are a team that is ridiculously battle tested. Siena has already faced off against Tennessee, Wichita State, Pitt, Kansas and Oklahoma State and pretty much played extremely competitive ball in all of those games. They just blasted Manhattan and have an RPI of 28. Guys like Hasbrouck, Ubiles and Franklin should be too good today in outclassing another opponent.

Iona is alright and did have a solid enough road win at Loyola but ultimately they have one guy averaging double figures and the Gaels already played their best ball in the cover a few weeks ago at Siena and still lost the game.

After 40 minutes today the Saints will be too good for this too cheap price!

Today's Selection

What a way to end the week as Boston College not only covered, but they won outright in an upset over Duke yesterday.

Now to build off yesterdays win I like the Longhorns in College Station tonight.  Sure neither team is tearing it up right now, but thanks to Texas having won their last pair of games I they are much better than the Aggies here tonight.  You see for Texas A&M they have struggled big time in league play as they have lost their last three games overall and 7 of their last 10 games, including an 11 point loss in Austin.  Meanwhile, for Texas after losing three straight games they have rebounded to win the last two games as they head into tonight having won 3 of the last 4 series meetings.  So with that I expect for the Longhorns to continue to rebound as they sweep the Aggies on the road today.   All Texas minus the road chalk!

PICK: Texas Longhorns

Craig Davis

Today's Selection

Charleston is coming off a humiliating 14-point home loss to the Citadel and is coming into a hostile environment tonight.

App. State recently suffered a couple of tough road losses but will welcome the opportunity to come back home where they are 6-5 on the season.

Though the Cougars probably have more overall talent, the Mounties are a tough beat at home and need this win more. Sitting at one game under .500 in the conference you can bet they’ll bring the best they have to offer tonight.

We’re  comfortable laying the point at home as App. State wins by 5 or 6 points.

2♦ APPALACHIAN STATE

Nick "BookieKiller" Parsons

NAS -137 vs OTT

The Senators are finally on a decent run as they've seemed to finally adjust and respond to the Craig Hartsburg firing. However, this looks like the perfect spot for the Sens to get tripped up and we feel solid line value is being offered with the Predators in this spot. Nashville is catching Ottawa when the Senators are playing their fourth road game in six nights. That makes this is a tough spot for the Sens and they have another road game on deck, at Colorado, tomorrow night! As for the Preds, they are playing the finale of a four game home stand and none of the games have been back to back situations. In other words, Nashville is rested and ready here, and they're also enjoying momentum from back to back wins including knocking off the Bruins in their most recent game on Saturday. Take a look at Nashville on Monday night.

1 Unit on Texas/Texas A&M UNDER 131.5

Back-to-back games in this matchup have gone under and I'm expecting another defensive showdown tonight. With Texas winning the first matchup this season it puts the Aggies in a strong unders spot as they are 12-4 UNDER revenging a loss vs. an opponent over the last 2 seasons. Texas A&M is also 11-2 UNDER when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%) after 15 or more games over the last 2 seasons. The average score in these games totals 125 points. A&M has gone UNDER in 6 of its last 8 and we'll bet the Under here.

Canisius at Loyola-Maryland

This is a revenge game for Canisius, who got pounded by 24 at home by Loyola-Maryland last month. The logical way of thinking is that if Canisius lost at home by 24 to Loyola-Maryland, then surely Loyola-Maryland can win and cover at home as single digit chalk. If only it were that easy.

Embarrassment is a great motivator and Canisius was embarrassed by Loyola-Maryland in front of their own home crowd. Think Canisius wants to return the favor tonight? Absolutely!

Canisius will be plenty motivated to humiliate Loyola-Maryland in front of their home fans tonight. Loyola-Maryland is just 1-6 ATS at home this season.  I’ll take the points with Canisius tonight.

PREDICTION: 69-67

Re: Monday Service Plays

We Cover Spreads

Texas A&M Aggies +2

The Aggies are desperate for a win as they come in riding a 3-game losing skid. Take the bucket and Texas A&M at home in the Reed Arena vs. the Texas Longhorns.

A Big 12 battle in the Lone Star State as Texas (17-7) faces off with Texas A&M tonight. Texas comes in winners of their last two games and A&M comes in on a three game skid.

The Aggies started off hot on 14-1 run this year notching a couple of good non-conference wins under their belt. They beat LSU, Alabama, and Arizona. They've gotten off to a bad start in conference play going just 3-7 S.U. They are 6-4 ATS in conference play. Texas has been up and down and hard to read this year. They have some nice quality wins against UCLA, Wisconsin, and Villanova. They are 6-4 in conference play but have posted a struggling 3-7 ATS mark.

Texas hasn't won in College Station since 2004. These games aren't usually close either,seven of the last 10 have been decided by double figures. The Longhorns are 0-6 ATS in the last six meetings here.

We think the Aggies can win the battle in the paint tonight. Bryan Davis (10.6 PPG 6.2 RPG 31 blocks) and Chinemelu Elonu (9.8 PPG 7.4 RPG 44 blocks) have the edge both offensively and defensively against centers Connon Atchley (5.5 PPG 3.7 RPG 37 blocks) and Dexter Pittman (8.7 PPG 4.3 RPG 19 blocks). Gary Johnson (11.3 PPG and 5.9 RPG) is a solid forward for the Longhorns that the Aggies have to concentrate on tonight as well up front. The key matchup though will be when Josh Carter (13.3 PPG) for the Aggies and Damion James (15.5 PPG and 8.5 RPG). Both are tough players who can get the ball to basket and play defense. Carter has been streaky beyond the arc hitting just 36% of his three pointers. He can drive to the hole and draw the foul and is hitting an amazing 87% of his free throws. James won the first battle this year outscoring Carter 28-9.

The first meeting between these two teams A&M shot better from the floor and beyond the arc. It was the foul trouble that Bryan Davis got himself into and they lost his presence in the paint. The Longhorns won the battle on the glass and reeled in 13 offensive boards to A&M's 6 offensive boards. They must be more aggresive tonight in order to win this game. Elonu had 5 blocks for the Aggies in the first meeting and they will need the same defensive play from him again tonight. He also added 12 points and must put up similar numbers tonight.

The Longhorns are shooting just 40% from the floor in Big 12 play on the road this year. If guys like Josh Carter and David Sloan shots are on tonight than that could spell trouble for the Longhorns if they can't get a rhythm going on the road. They are just hitting 26% of there shots from beyond the arc in all road games this year. A.J. Abrams seems to struggle as of late against the Aggies averaging just 8.6 PPG in his past three meetings against them. He is shooting an awful 26% from the field against Texas A&M in those games.

The Longhorns last four visits to College Station they are just shooting 35% from the field, they struggle shooting in this building for some reason. tonight we are going to back the Aggies with the home crowd and the two points.

Pick: Texas A&M +2
