Los Angeles +3.10 over DETROIT

The Red Wings are the cream of the crop once again and it says here that barring significant injuries, the Sharkies have no shot of beating them in the playoffs but that’s a thought for another time. What we have here is a Red Wing team that’s on cruise control as the final month of the season approaches. They’re 10 points ahead of third place Calgary and five points behind first place San Jose. Chances are great that when the season ends the Red Wings will be exactly where they are right now. The point is that there are games left for Detroit that really don’t mean a lot and after flexing their muscles against the Sharkies, again, this game has a lot less significance. The Kings are in playoff mode right now and need every single point. That’s not to say they’re going to win here but they’re talented enough and hungry enough to pull off the upset. L.A is coming off a strong performance in Philly in a game they lost 2-0 (an empty netter) but out-shot Philly 34-20. These Kings have been playing a lot better on the road and with Chris Osgood in net for the Wings the Kings have a shot to put in a few. Price and situation makes the Kings a decent wager. Play: Los Angeles +3.10 (Risking 2 units).


PHILADELPHIA -½ -1.03 over Montreal

The Habs have won two in a row and appear to have snapped out of the despair they were in and if you believe that you have another thing coming. Yeah, they beat the Canucks 3-0 but they were completely dominated again and had no right winning that game. The Canucks out-shot the Habs 34-17. In reality, the Canadiens have had one good game in about a month and that came against Ottawa last Saturday afternoon. This team is still in a heap of trouble and there’s just no way they can compete with the Flyers. Sure, they can win, as goaltenders get hot and even when teams are dominated they sometimes win. So, the score or outcome I cannot predict. What I’m suggesting is that the Habs will get badly outplayed again (why wouldn’t they, they always do) and justice will be served. Philly easy. Play: Philadelphia -½ -1.03 (Risking 3.09 units to win 3).

1 Unit on Boston Celtics -12

Boston returns home, where it is 24-4 this season, following a 6-game road trip and a loss to the lowly Clippers to conclude it. Expect the Celtics to really run up the score in this one tonight. The Pacers are just 7-24 on the road this season and lost 96-114 when they visited Boston earlier this season. The major key here is that the Celtics won't miss KG nearly as much as the Pacers will miss Danny Granger in this game. Plays on home favorites; a very good team (>=+7 PPG differential) against an average team (+/- 3 PPG differential), after a loss by 6 points or less are 27-4 ATS the last 5 seasons. Bet Boston.

Los Angeles Lakers at Denver
Pick: Los Angeles Lakers -2

The Lakers continue to roll and are hungry to have the home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, so every game matters. They have taken off again and are 13-1 in their last 14 games, including winning in both Boston and Cleveland. The Nuggets appear inconsistent and out of sync right now. They went all of last season without scoring below 80 points in a game, and have now done it twice in the last eight games, with an 82-point performance thrown in there as well. They have dropped three of their last four, and needed a one-point escape at home over Atlanta to keep that from being four out of four. They are facing the wrong team at the wrong time as their "A" game might not be enough, but lately their "A" game is nowhere to be found. The Lakers take charge here.

Chicago Bulls -5 over Washington Wizards

The Bulls may have lost two of three with their new lineup, but the team has gone 10-3 ATS over their last 13 games.  Chicago was up on New Jersey Wednesday night before running out of energy due to the back-to-back situation.  Washington hasn't really been doing anything right lately and they are allowing their opponents to shoot the ball at way too high of a rate.  Witht he Bulls shooting 48% over their last five games I am having trouble picturing Washington keeping pace.


Iona -2.5 over St. Peter's

St. Peter's isn't shooting the ball at a very high rate and they are turning the ball over way too often.  Iona does a good job of forcing turnovers and they get to the foul line.  The Gaels lost by three on their home floor to the Peacocks a month ago, and I think they will want to return the favor here tonight.  Last year Iona came into town and won by eight, and I'm seeing a similar result tonight.
