Tuesday Service Plays

Wunderdog

Houston at Utah
Pick: Houston +5.5

Houston had spent most of the season trying to get over the hump on the road, and they finally have. They have moved over .500 and now stand at 18-17 on the strength of winning five of their last six road contests. This is a red-hot team that has now gone 16-4 over their last 20 games. They have been a solid choice as an underdog as well, as they are now 8-3 ATS in their last 11 as a dog. Utah is winning at home again, having taken their last 12. They are not covering the games as the oddsmakers have given them bigger numbers because of their home-court prowess. The result has been four wins in their last four, but four pointspread losses! The Rockets' resurgence on the road has them at a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last six, while the Jazz are an imperfect 0-5 ATS in their last five against winning teams. I'm on Houston and the points here.

Craig Trapp

Houston Rockets vs. Utah Jazz    
Play: Over 193

Utah has been playing very well at home all year and now are fully healthy. They are making a push to win their division and only 2 games behind Denver! Also recently UTAH has been scoring a ton with over 100 pts 3 out of last 4 games. Houston is averaging over 98 pts a game the last 4 games. Think tonight Houston will be pushing the ball up and down to score a ton of points to keep this one close. Utah will also do the same, at home they score a ton more. SCORE UTAH 103 - HOU 101

Baylor at Auburn
Play: Auburn

Going with the superior team at home tonight at a short price. Auburn has gone 11-3 ATS on this floor so far this season, including 10-2 when favored. They are 10-1 ATS off a double-digit win. They are a perfect 7-0 ATS coming off consecutive home games. They are 16-4 ATS off a game where they covered the spread. Baylor is not a good road team, remember their Big 12 Tourney run came on a neutral floor. Before a 2nd round NIT win, they had lost four straight ?true? road games. The Bears are 2-9 ATS if they were an underdog in their last game. Take Auburn.

GoodFella

OKL +8 vs LAL

Oklahoma City is coming off a 7 pt road win over Minnesota on Sunday & now return home, to where they have lost their last 2 home games (Bulls & Jazz) & I look for a HUGE effort & a crazed home crowd for this game tonight. LA beat Ok City at Ok City 107-93 back on Feb. 24th & the Thunder will be seriously up for this game tonight. The Lakers are just 1-4 ATS their L/5 games as a favorite & they have 1st place all but locked up in the Western Conference seeding race. Oklahoma City has all their players back & playing again & I really like how this team competes at home & against the top tier NBA teams as well. Oklahoma City is 9-1 ATS L/10 game as a home underdog of 5 to 10.5 pts & they are 12-4 ATS L/16 games vs a team with a win% of .600 or higher. I really expect a fierce effort out of the Thunder tonight & I think this game will be closer than most people think & I will grab the +8 pts & look for a very tight game.

Chicago Bulls -5.5 over Detroit Pistons

The Bulls are coming off a close win last night in Washington but they are 4-0 ATS in their last four games playing back-to-back, plus Chicago is 7-1 ATS in their last eight games at home.  The Pistons are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games against the Eastern Conference and 8-20 ATS when their opponents put up more than 100 in their last game.  The Bulls have been a different team at home, going 21-12 while Detroit is 16-17 on the road.  The Bulls have beaten Detroit three straight times in Chicago and they should make it four after tonight.

Golden State Warriors at San Antonio Spurs

San Antonio Spurs have won 22 straight home game against the Warriors. Go with the Spurs to continue their home dominance over the sad Warriors. San Antonio is 9-1 ATS in its last 10 games at home against Golden State.

San Antonio Spurs -10½

Houston Rockets at Utah Jazz

The Jazz are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 home games, but just 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games at home against Houston. Take the hot the Rockets tonight in a close clash versus Utah in Salt Lake City. Houston has won their last five games and the road team in this series is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.

Houston Rockets +5.5

Auburn Tigers -3.5

Houston +5' at UTAH 

For Tuesday we’ll back the red-hot Rockets plus the points over the Jazz in NBA action.

Houston has been one of the hottest teams in the NBA, going 16-4 SU in its last 20 games, including Sunday’s impressive last-second 87-85 upset at San Antonio. That victory allowed the Rockets to overtake the Spurs for first place in the Southwest Division and claim the No. 2 spot in the Western Conference standings.

One of the reasons for the Rockets’ resurgence – which has come without the services of Tracy McGrady, who is out for the season with yet another injury – has been defense. Houston has surrendered less than 90 points 11 times during its 16-4 run, including in five of the last six games (the only team in the last six to get over 88 against the Rockets was the Pistons, but that game went to overtime).

Also, Houston has been playing very well on the road, winning five of its last six as a visitor, including victories at playoff-contenders San Antonio, New Orleans, Denver and Charlotte. True, the one loss came at Utah early this month, but the Rockets covered that night as an underdog. In fact, they’ve cashed in six straight road games and five of the last seven against Utah, going 3-1 ATS in the last four in Salt Lake. Meanwhile, the Jazz have won 12 consecutive home games, but haven’t cashed in the last four as a host and are 1-4 ATS in their last five overall. Take the points.

2♦ HOUSTON

Houston +5' at UTAH 

Take the points with the Rockets tonight on the road over the Jazz.

Houston is on a roll right now, having won four straight and 16 of its last 20.  The Rockets have also won four straight on the road and are 6-0 ATS in their last six away contests.

Utah is coming off a three-day layoff, and having played six of its last seven on the road may not be completely in sync for tonight’s game.

The Jazz are 0-4 ATS in their last four home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five overall.

The Rockets are on ATS runs of 4-0 as an underdog, 4-0 against the Northwest Division and 4-1 when playing on one day of rest.

Take the points with the Rockets as they stay within the number.

Drew Gordon

Penn State at FLORIDA -10'

Let me be the one to tell you: Lay the points, as the Gators have been nasty in Gainesville, going 19-1 SU & 7-7 ATS, including Friday's dominant win over a very good Hurricanes team 74-60! More of the same tonight, and here's why:

The Lions on the other hand, have been nothing but average on the road this season, with blowout road losses like Minnesota (20-point loss), Michigan (20-point loss), and Ohio State (14-point loss) making it very difficult to side with them in this one. Problem stems from their offense, which while efficient at home, has had tremendous issues in hostile territory, and it won't get any easier tonight with Florida allowing 58 ppg on 41% shooting over their last 5 games!

Also, speaking of the Lions offense, they're in big trouble if their two injured stars are less than 100% tonight. Of the two, Battle & Cornley, it look like Battle is most likely to play, but a hip pointer is never an easy injury to play with. Cornley meanwhile is listed as questionable, and his possible absence (even if he plays, it remains to be seen how effective he can be) will severly hurt the Lions chances tonight. Florida has a couple solid big bodies, and without Cornley, they will own the paint.

Finally, the biggest mismatch is the Florida offense, led by Calathes, against a good, but not great Lions defense. Penn State has seemingly lost its focus on the defensive end of late, allowing 70 ppg on 45% shooting over their last five, and a trip to Gainesville is the LAST thing they need! Nick Calathes has been amazing, and with Tyus and Werner playing well, the Gators are fully equipped to expose a road-weary Nittany Lions squad in this one. Gators roll!

Take Florida over Penn State in this college hoops match up.

11-4 comp play run after the loser on Davidson.

For Tuesday take the points with the Rockets.

This is a bottom of the barrell play for sure as the slate is small and not very good but gun to my head I'll back the red hot Rockets here.

Utah at home is as good as they come. For years and years the Jazz always won game after game after game on their home court. Nothing has slowed down even with the retirements of John Stockton and Karl Malone but the way Houston has been playing I'll take any points I can get with the them right now.

Yao Ming is an unstoppable force and Ron Artest has been playing extremely spirited ball of late. Losing Tracy McGrady did anything but end the team's season as these guys have really gelled and played total winning hoops of late just capped off by the great win in San Antonio against what is still a borderline great Spurs team.

For Rick Adelman to have guided his team to a 47-25 mark is unreal. Guys like Luis Scola and Aaron Brooks have really stepped it up and to be in first place this late in the season without their big gun is a tribute to all.

Houston has won four in a row and a whopping 16 of 20. No doubt Carlos Boozer, Deron Williams and the rest of the Jazz could come out with a win and cover tonight but the way today's visitors have been I can't help but scoop up the decent enough number.

First off I must tip my cap to Baylor as while they have been playing great over the past few weeks I see their season coming to an end tonight as Auburn takes care of business at home.  Not when the Tigers are great at home at 18-3 straight up and 11-3 against the spread.  In fact thanks to Auburn sitting at 21-7 ATS on the year it’s tough to imagine Baylor traveling for the second time this tournament and winning due to the Bears being just 1-6 straight up on the highway over their last 7 games.  Meanwhile, back to Auburn they have won their seven games at home and with the straight up winning 20-3 ATS in the Tigers last 23 games all the signs point toward a home win and cover tonight for Auburn.   With that take the Tigers minus the points as they advance to the semifinals.

PICK: Auburn Tigers

Craig Davis

Well, it wasn't a thing of beauty last night as I had something happen to me that's never happened before... two pushes and a win. My top play on Vermont was in the bag until the final seconds of overtime. The T'Wolves suffered the same fate, failing to score in the final seconds for a cover. Even as ugly as those two finishes were, we still profited for our clients going 1-0-2 with our dime plays and 1-0 with our free play on St. Mary's.

Tonight we go to the NBA hardwood for an easy free play winner on OKC at home. The last time the Thunder hosted the Lakers, they fell apart in the fourth quarter and failed to cover by a few points. That's not going to be the case tonight as OKC is at full strength, with Kevin Durant, Jeff Green, Russell Westbrook and the rest of the crew playing better basketball. The Ford Center will be sold out because the Lakers are in town, and you can be the crowd will be lively from the opening tip.

The Thunder have covered nine of their last ten when grabbing between five and 10 points at home and they've covered 13 of their last 17 (including one push) at home vs. a team with a winning record. Vegas tends to over-estimate the Lakers because they know people will bet on them, pretty much no matter what the number is. We're glad to take the eight points as OKC pushes the Lakers for the SU win tonight.

2♦ OKLAHOMA CITY
