Craig Trapp

Cincinnati vs. South Florida    
Play: Cincinnati -3

Big game for the bubble team Cincinnati Bearcats. South Florida only has 8 wins on the year and are under 500 at home. Only big win this year came at home against Marquette. SF is shorthanded tonight and will have to play really well to win. Cincinnati is -3.5 road favorite in this match up. Check out recent trends for this game:

Road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

Bearcats are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

Bulls are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games.

Bulls are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a home underdog.

Bearcats are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite.

Craig is going to take the team with all the motivation and a must win for the Cats and if they blow out USF will even help them more. SCORE CIN 74 - USF 60

Dave Price

1 Unit on Iowa +1.5

The Hawkeyes are 12-3 at home this season and have really been playing solid basketball down the stretch. Ohio State is just 3-6 in true road games and will have a tough time in Iowa City tonight. Iowa is 4-0 ATS in its last 4 games, beating Michigan and taking Purdue, Michigan State, and Northwestern down to the wire. Iowa is a perfect 6-0 ATS in home games when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%) this season. Iowa lost at Ohio State by just 3 points earlier this season and that swings things in our favor here as well as the Hawks are 6-0 ATS in home games revenging a same season loss vs. an opponent over the last 3 seasons. The Buckeyes were absolutely crushed at Purdue and history tells us they won't be back up for this one as they are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a SU loss of more than 20 points. Take Iowa.

Dwayne Bryant

Florida State at Duke
Bet:Florida State +12

This is a tough spot for the Blue Devils. Duke is coming off four straight wins and three straight covers. Duke got revenge at home over Wake three games ago. Then they traveled to Maryland and closed well to hold off the very determined and revenge-minded Terps. In their last game, Duke held off the revenge-minded Hokies in Blacksburg.

What does Duke have on deck? Only a GINORMOUS revenge game with North Carolina. Remember, UNC embarrassed the Blue Devils on their home floor in front of a national TV audience, 101-87, on 2/11/09.

Considering that Duke beat these Seminoles in Tallahassee already this season, I have to think Duke will be looking ahead to that Sunday revenge match with the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill.

From a series perspective, FSU is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings, including a PERFECT 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings at Duke. FSU's last two trips to Cameron resulted in a 68-67 upset win as 8.5-point dogs and a 97-96 OT loss as 15-point dogs.

Considering FSU's success at Cameron and Duke's look-ahead situation, I feel confident taking the dozen with Florida State tonight.

Frank Jordan

Rutgers vs. Syracuse     
Play: Syracuse -15.5

Rutgers has played 15 Big East games has just one win and are 10-19 over all. Syracuse is 21-8 and has cracked the top 25 ranking. Look for Syracuse, who has won 15 of 18 games at home, to crush Rutgers just like they did in their first meeting back in January. Play Syracuse

ALEX SMART

Denver Nuggets @ Detroit Pistons
PICK: Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets Chauncey Billups returns to Motown venue, that was previously his home before a shocking early season trade sent him packing to the Rocky Mountains. Billups is one of the all time fan favorites to ever suit up in a Pistons uniform, as is evident on Motor City Hoops blogs and boards. Look for a huge ovation by the Motor City faithful, and for Billups to feed off of this and lead his team to a big time performance.

Here is a quote: "I'm sure it will be emotional," Billups said. "I had a lot of great years there. I'm sure it's always going to be my home away from home. It will be pretty emotional, but it will be a lot of fun."

With the home town Pistons off an emotional back to back road wins, against the Orlando Magic and the defending NBA champion, Boston Celtics last time out, a let down performance tonight could easily be on the agenda.

I know the Nuggets have lost 11 straight trips SU to Auburn Hills, but that was than and this is now. With the Nuggets , getting points , I look for the road team to move to 5-1 ATS in the L/6 overall meetings and for the Pistons to move to 0-6 ATS in their L/6 at home vs a winning opponent.

Projected score: Denver 95 Detroit 93

Greg Shaker

Alabama / Auburn Over 143.5

Interesting Trends for this contest with Auburn Playing Under the Mark at 9-2 when they travel and Bama on the other end of the spectrum at 9-4 OVER at home. But this game is less about Trends and more about what is happening right now with the Tide and what is happening in this series most recently. These two squads have played OVER the mark the last 4 times they have met, and in doing so, they have averaged 164 points on 116 shots per contest. They have also played those games in a very physical way and we have seen many shots from the free throw line. We saw 49 of those in the first game this year and that helped push that contest to 156 total points. These two squads do not in any way like each other. Have you ever heard of the Auburn/Alabama Rivalry? It happens with Hoops as well. This physical style of play is going to be our friend tonight. What is also going to be our friend is a #75 and #65 Raw Pace Ranking by these two squads as well as a Top 100 Offensive Efficiency for both. In addition to all of this, Alabama is playing their best offensive basketball of the season with 90, 88, and 87 points in their last 3 times on the court. Let's No-Brainer this one and play it up to 147. PLAY OVER.

1* on Austin Peay -10.5

Austin Peay is one of the best teams in the Ohio Valley, but they’ve suffered many bad breaks this season. This is our choice to win this tournament as the Governors cruise to victory tonight to get off to a solid start. Austin Peay is 13-5 SU and 10-7 ATS in Ohio Valley games this year. E. Illinois is just 8-10 SU and 7-10 ATS in conference play. Worse yet, Eastern Illinois is 3-12 SU and 5-8 ATS on the road this season. Eastern Illinois has no momentum heading into this game, going 1-6 SU in their last 7 games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 lined games overall. Austin Peay, on the other hand, has momentum after finishing the season 2-0 and winning their final two games by double-digits. Austin Peay is 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in six meetings with E. Illinois over the last 3 seasons. This is one team the Governors have owned and we don’t see that changing tonight considering it’s do or die for the Governors. E. Illinois is 0-9 ATS (-9.9 Units) in road games off 2 consecutive road losses of 10 or more since 1997. Take Austin Peay and lay the points.

OKLAHOMA STATE -5 Over Kansas State

The Cowboys of the Big Twelve Conference under their Head Coach Travis Ford are 19-9 Straight Up, and 10-11-1 Against The Spread on the season. They look to be in good shape to return to the NCAA Tourney for the first time in four seasons. The Cowboys have been taking no prisoners lately, and should play hard on their Home court this evening. Positive trends include 5-0 SU and ATS recently, 5-0 SU in this match up at Home, 9-3 ATS as Favorites, and 14-9 ATS as Home Favorites in this point range. This should be a great one to watch on National TV tonight.

The Wildcats enter this Conference match up under their second year Head Coach Frank Martin with a record of 20-9 SU, and 9-11-1 ATS on the year. They too are looking to gain a berth in March Madness, and every game is a must win. The Wildcats are 9-2 SU lately, and must be respected. Negative trends include 0-8 ATS in games they lose SU, 2-5 ATS versus good Offensive teams, and 13-18 ATS on the Road.

The line overnited at Cowboys -5. We'll go with the Home Cowboys to cover for us here tonight.

Re: Tuesday Servivce Plays

Jeff Benton

Came up short with Baylor last night in the freebie department. Still, I’m 4-2 with complimentary selections over the last six days, and we’ll look to improve on that Tuesday by backing New Mexico at home against Utah in Mountain West Conference play.

This is a very cheap price to be laying with the Lobos, who are 14-2 as a host this season, including 6-0 against Mountain West foes, proving once again that the Pit is one of the toughest places in the nation for visiting opponents. Just how dominant has New Mexico been in league home games? Consider the margins of victory: 14 (TCU), 26 (San Diego State), 4 (UNLV in overtime), 29 (New Mexico), 18 (Colorado State) and 19 (BYU). Yep, five double-digit blowouts in six games!

Granted, the Lobos are just 1-5 ATS in their last six games … BUT they were an underdog (at BYU) in one of those contests and a big favorite in three others (8½, 14½ and 12½ points). In the other two games, they covered easily versus SDSU and came up just short as a five-point favorite in the four-point overtime win over UNLV.

As for Utah, it came crashing back down to earth Saturday at archrival BYU, losing 63-50 as a six-point road underdog to end an eight-game winning streak (6-2 ATS). During that winning streak, the one team that came closest to upending the Utes was … New Mexico, which went to Salt Lake on Jan. 31 and fell 69-68, covering as a five-point road underdog.

The last three meetings have been decided by a total of four points (one in overtime), and while Utah won two of those games, New Mexico is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 against the Utes overall and 5-2 in the last seven meetings in The Pit. Lastly, the Lobos are 23-11 ATS in their last 34 games as a home chalk and 5-1 in their last six as a favorite of less than seven points, while the Utes have failed to cash in five of their last six as a road pup. Utah has the talent to keep this close for a half, but look for the Lobos and their crowd to take over in the final 20 minutes as the home team posts a comfortable win and cover.

Re: Tuesday Servivce Plays

For Tuesday take Maryland at home.

Just a few weeks or even days ago it appeared that Maryland was out of the NCAA Tournament picture. But after some very quality wins including shocking North Carolina at home and upsetting NC State on Sunday as the four point road dog Gary Williams' team is all of a sudden back in the discussion.

Grevis Vasquez has really stepped it up in leading the Terps and at home here in another lay it on the line type of a game I'll take my chances with Maryland at this cheaper than cheap price. The sharpshooter went for 33 against the Wolfpack and appears to really have it cooking of late leading the way.

I do fully admit that Wake Forest is the more talented team on the floor today as Jeff Teague and company were ranked number one at one point for a reason. But things have not come as easy of late and the Demon Deacons have been coming back down to Earth over the last six or so weeks after the great undefeated start.

Teague, Aminu, Johnson, McFarland and the rest of the visitors have struggled mightily at times on the road. The Deacs did just win and cover in Charlottesville against a poor Virginia team but before that dropped four straight away from Winston Salem including horrible showings at Georgia Tech, Miami and NC State. The Deacs were flat out blown out and embarassed at points in those games and handed the Yellow Jackets their lone ACC win on the season.

In another do or die game for the Terps I can see them respond here at Cole for sure!

Re: Tuesday Servivce Plays

Tony Weston

Today's Selection:

We came through easily last night as Texas makes easy work of Baylor to give us a Comp Play winner.

We’re nailing Comp Play winner No. 2 in a row tonight as we’re heading to Big Ten country where we’re taking Michigan State on the road at Indiana.

In this matchup you’re looking at two Big Ten teams heading in complete opposite directions with Michigan State sitting atop the conference and Indiana just counting the days until this season is over.

The Spartans come into this game on a roll lately, having covered in seven of their last 10 games and going 8-2 SU in that stretch. On the road, Michigan State is almost better than at home, where it has covered in seven of its last nine games away from East Lansing and has covered in five of its last six games when installed as a road favorite.

Now the Spartans get a shot at an Indiana team that has covered only once in its last five home games and has to deal with a Michigan State team that rolled it 75-47 on Feb. 7 as a 21-point favorite.

Over their last two meetings the Spartans have destroyed the Hoosiers, winning both ATS and SU by an average of 28.5 points per game.

Michigan State will roll Indiana once again and get over easily in this one. Take the Spartans big in this one tonight.

Re: Tuesday Servivce Plays

Craig Davis

Another day, another free play winner on Elon College over Davidson. I told you Davidson would win, but I also told you the line was simply too large to lay. Correct on both counts. If you’re keeping tabs at home, that makes six straight FREE PLAY winners and nine of the last 12. I’m on an incredible run of free play winners and I’m going to continue it tonight with some huge DIME plays in the NBA and college hoops. Don’t miss out on these winners.

Okay, so onto free play winner #7 in a row. If you’ve been with me since the beginning of the year, you know I was rolling along quite well until these last five days. As the season winds down it gets tougher and tougher to spot a winner in the colleges because certain teams start resting players because they have conferences wrapped up. This was the case for Davidson last night and will be the case for Weber State tonight. They have just one conference loss all season (vs. this same Montana State team) and are four games ahead of the team with the next best record. Being that this is the last conference game for both teams and it’s senior night for Montana State, I feel comfortable backing the home team catching a few points.

I fully realize Weber State is the clearly superior team but even with their starting five on the floor they couldn’t figure out MSU back in January. The Bobcats have a losing overall record and losing record in conference play, but with a win tonight they can send their seniors out on a winning note in their final home game ever. With the starters on the bench in the second half, the Bobcats sneak in for a second half win and cover.

Montana State completes the season sweep of Weber State with a 73-69 home win.

Re: Tuesday Servivce Plays

Drew Gordon

Phoenix at ORLANDO -7 

Wait a second? But the Suns just beat the Lakers outright 118-111 Sunday, so why in the hell would I lay this many with the Magic? That's the question most average bettors are asking themselves, and then they're quick to throw away money on Phoenix tonight, which is a big mistake and here's why:

First, we know Vegas isn't stupid, and if you think they're giving you a bargain with the Suns plus the points, then you need to get your head examined! The Suns may have beaten the Lakers at home Sunday, but two things differ here:

A. The Suns are on the road, where they're an average team SU, and a piss-poor bet as Phoenix-backers will tell you, going 11-16-1 ATS away. Sure, they beat the Lakers in classic revenge game, but do you remember the score of their prior meeting at Staples? The Lakers rolled 132-106, in a total shellacking of a road weary Suns team Feb 26th.

And B. We know the Suns and especially Shaquille expended a hell of a lot of energy in that contest. Sure they've had time to recover physically, but there's no doubt, its tougher to "get up" from a motivational standpoint after a huge win over the Lakers. In other words, I'm expecting a big fat letdown here by O'Neal and company.

Also, let's not forget, the Magic lost to the Pistons in their last home game, and will be looking for the bounce back in front of their home fans. Sure, they beat Philadelphia on the road the very next day after the Detroit loss, but they played terribly against Detroit, scoring only 85 points (16 points under their average at home). Look for Howard to lead his team to victory tonight, after he had a quiet game against the 76ers due to foul trouble. O'Neal has been on fire, but a match up against the best center in the league, Howard, is just the thing to cool him down! Magic roll!

Take Orlando over Phoenix in this NBA match up.

Virginia +15 at CLEMSON 

Way too many points for Clemson to be laying tonight, as the Tigers have hit a rough patch, and covering this big number is very improbable.

Clemson has dropped their last pair, and 4 of their last 7, and they are also 3-4 against the spread in those 7 games. Included in that span is an overtime loss at Charlottesville to the Cavaliers on February 15th.

Virginia has won 7 of the last 9 series meetings overall, and the underdog in the series is on a 10-3 spread run the last 13 meetings.

The Wahoos may only be 9-16 for the season, but by the looks of the series results, the Cavs sure have had the Tigers number of late.

For the year the Tigers are no better than .500 against the spread at home at 5-5-1, while the Cavaliers stand at 6-3 against the spread on the road this season.

G-Man expects the proverbial "back door" to be wide open in this one.

Take Virginia plus the points.

Kansas State at OKLAHOMA STATE -4' 

Now 19-7-2 our last 28 comp play releases!

College winner tonight on Oklahoma State minus the points at home against Kansas State.

Both schools are coming off home wins on Saturday, but we are not sure we trust the Wildcats on the road, as K-State is just 4-12-1 against the spread in their last 17 roadies.

Oklahoma State is charging hard down the stretch, as Saturday's win over Texas made it 5 straight wins and covers for the Cowboys.

Travis Ford's team is also on a 7-3-1 spread run their last 11 at home.

Okie State is 5-1 straight up the last 6 meetings against Kansas State, covering 3 of the last 4.

We say lay the small wood with the sizzling Cowboys tonight.

Play on Oklahoma State.

Florida State +12' at DUKE 

Take the points with Florida State tonight when they travel to take on Duke.

I know the game is in Cameron and that means lots of non-calls against the Blue Devils and phantom calls against the Seminoles, but Florida State really has an excellent chance of keeping this game close throughout.

The Seminoles have won six of their last eight, including Saturday’s win over Clemson.  Florida State is 9-3-1 ATS on the road this year.

Duke has bounced back since back-to-back losses to North Carolina and Boston College, but its not like they knocked off any ACC heavyweights.

The Blue Devils are soft inside and the opposition has had an easy time driving the lane against them, so I expect Florida State to attack them there tonight.

Florida State has covered eight of the last 10 meetings with Duke, including the last four at Cameron.

The Seminoles are on additional ATS runs of 10-4-1 overall, 11-3-1 on the road, 13-4-2 in ACC play, 13-4-1 as a dog and 7-3-1 as a road dog.

Take the points with Florida State as they keep it within the number.

Wake Forest at MARYLAND +2' 

Can anybody stop Maryland's Greivis Vasquez? This guy is single-handedly getting the Terps at least onto the bubble when it comes to NCAA Tournament talk.

They will get the job done at home in this one as Wake Forest comes into town. Maryland has won four of its last six games and Sunday night they went to N.C. State and got a 71-60 win as four-point 'dogs with Vasquez getting 33 points and five assists. In their home upset win over North Carolina on Feb. 21, he put together a triple-double performance to beat the Tar Heels in overtime.

Maryland has won four straight in this series and swept two games last season, winning 71-64 at home and 74-70 at Wake Forest. The Terps are 5-2 ATS in their last seven ACC games while the Demon Deacons are just 1-4 ATS in their last five road contests.

Maryland is going to have to step up on defense because Wake Forest can put points on the board. But look for them to get it done today at home. It'll be tight but the Terps will get the win in the final two minutes. Play Maryland.

3♦ MARYLAND

Chicago Bulls at Charlotte Bobcats

The Charlotte Bobcats have won their last three games and should grab their fourth straight victory when they square off against the shorthanded Bulls tonight at home. Chicago has dropped four of their last five road games, and will probably be without forwards Luol Deng and Tim Thomas. The Bobcats are 8-3 both straight-up and against the spread in their last 11 games and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 at Charlotte Bobcats Arena.

Charlotte Bobcats -2½


Mr A

Phoenix Suns + 7
Houston Rockets -9
Memphis Grizzlies +15

DET / DEN Under 189

This is going to be an emotional game for Chauncey Billups and the Pistons as Billups will make his first game as a Pistons' opponent tonight at the Palace. Detroit suddenly started winning and made it with great style by beating Orlando and Boston on the road. Allen Iverson didn't play in those games and the Pistons had a better team chemistry and Richard Hamilton played great as a starter.

The Nuggets meanwhile is coming from a disappointing loss in Indiana having a letdown after a big win against the Lakers. Their offense was horrible in that game shooting only 36.2 % from the field. For this game Carmelo Anthony won't play tonight and the Nuggets without him are a better defensive team. In fact, the Nuggets are 10-5 Under without Carmelo in this season, these are relevant numbers as the Nuggets are 31-29 Over in the season. I think we will se a low scoring game in here. Billups will control the tempo of the game and naturally he is fired up to make a great game. The Nuggets can play some defense in tough games, just look for the outcome of the latest "physical games" of the Nuggets: LAL 90-79; BOS 76-114; @ PHI 101-89; @ORL 82-73; @ MIA 99-82. All these games finished well bellow the total line and this game won't be different.

The Pistons scored 105 points in Boston last game which is a great number; however they went 34-40 for the charity stripe. 40 free throws attempts aren't normal numbers for the Pistons as they averaged only 22.6 FT/games in this season so I don?t expect such numbers for tonight and I don't expect as well them to reach the 100's points tonight, remember that the Under is 6-2 in Pistons last 8 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. This is also the first home game after their longest road trip of the season and usually the teams became rusty in the first home game. The Pistons are a good example as the Under is 4-1 in Pistons last 5 home games following a road trip of 7 or more days.

Both teams already faced each other in Denver and the Pistons won 93-90. I expect similar numbers for tonight and my fair line for this game is 186/187 points. Take the Under in here.
