This is a game Utah had circled before the season even started as it was embarrassed 76-49 at UCLA in last season's meeting. I expect this meeting to turn out much differently as the Bruins struggle in their first true road game of the season. College teams headed up by coach Krystkowiak are 7-0 ATS all-time as a home underdog of 6 points or less or pickem. His teams have won these games by an average of 12.3 points.

Off a disappointing performance at Indiana, expect the reigning NBA champs to flex their muscles in Portland where they have won the last 3 meetings by at least 7 points. The Blazers have won their last 3 but are 3-12 ATS after 2 or more consecutive wins over the last 2 seasons. They have lost these contests by an average score of 102.5 to 96.0. The road team is 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings, and the Heat are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Portland. Lay the points.

Even though the Mavericks are playing the second game of a back-to-back set and their third contest in four nights, I believe they are being extremely undervalued tonight.

Dallas has lost four straight and 10 of 11 overall, but if you look close enough you can see that they are playing much better now that Dirk Nowitzki is getting back into the swing of things. A lot of people overlook the fact that the schedule has been absolutely brutal. Over their last four games they have taken the Heat to overtime, lost by just six at Utah and last night had a lead going into the 4th quarter at Los Angeles (Clippers).

All Sacramento has done in their last two games is lose at Brooklyn by 20 points and at home to Memphis by 32. I'm having a hard time figuring out why they are favored in this one. Dallas is definitely worth a small bet tonight!

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Hawkeyes come into this game off a 67-95 loss at Michigan, while the Spartans knocked off Purdue 84-61 at home in their last outing. The fact that Iowa is only a 2-point underdog, has me thinking oddsmakers want the public to jump all over Michigan State when in fact they believe Iowa has an excellent shot at winning this game. The Hawkeyes are a much better team at home, which is evident by their 65-69 loss to Indiana. While I'm not quite confident enough to lay a big bet on Iowa in this spot, I think it's the right side and deserving of a small play. Take the Points!

Red Dog Sports

Old Dominion +11

George Mason has one player scoring in double digits. They are at home and do play solid defense but they are not the force we have seen in previous years. ODU has struggled this year without a leader like Kent Bazemore or Ben Finney. They are well coached by Blaine Taylor but seem to find a way to lose each game. They were blown out by Richmond early this year but most games have been close. Ross, Donte Hill, Dmitri Batten and transfer Deshawn Painter are their scorers. GMU wins by 8 but ODU covers the big number.

Greg Daraban

Saint Marys at Gonzaga
Pick: Gonzaga

Huge game in the WCC must respect a very good St.Mary's team, however they are walking into a hornets nest. Gonzaga is still realing after getting beat by St. Mary's in the WCC Tournament last year in Las Vegas. Gonzaga beat Baylor, Ok St, Kansas St, and Wash St. Take 558 Gonzaga ** Greg won both games last night Memphis in the NBA and Univ Washington both were dogs both were underdogs.

Andrew Lange 

Arizona State at Oregon State
Play: Oregon State

I'm not sold on Arizona's 13-2, 2-0 PAC-12 start. Are the Sun Devils better than last year? No question. But the schedule has been extremely favorable thus far and things get a bit tougher starting tonight in Corvallis. For starters ASU has played one true road game against a Texas Tech squad that just lost on its home floor to Baylor by 34. Next, the Sun Devils are 2-0 in league play but needed overtime to get past Utah and were gift-wrapped a win against Colorado after the Buffaloes were hosed out of one on the road against undefeated Arizona. Oregon State meanwhile below a six-point halftime lead and ended up losing to rival Oregon 79-66 at home. With Arizona on deck and then back-to-back road games in LA, all of a sudden this game has a lot of meaning. If Oregon State can keep ASU's Jahii Carson in check – I expect they’ll throw multiple defensive looks his way – I think they’ll come away with a solid victory at home.

PORTLAND (+3.5) over Miami

tonight we'll ride the team that's at home, is playing better basketball and is catching points. After a recent six-game winning streak, the Heat have won just three of their last seven straight up and are on a 1-6 tailspin against the spread. They are getting killed on the boards right now and that spells trouble against a Trailblazer team that's one of the best in the league in second-chance points. Portland rides a strong home court (12-4 straight-up on this floor) to an upset victory.

Texas-Arlington at Texas-San Antonio
Play: Texas-San Antonio

I’ve picked my spots in cashing a couple tickets against this Texas-Arlington squad and I think tonight offers another good opportunity for another fade as they take on Texas-San Antonio. The weakness all season for Texas-San Antonio has been their play on the defensive end of the court. The Roadrunners have allowed 70 points per game and a very poor 51% shooting to opposing teams on their home floor this season but I’m not sure that Arlington is offensively capable of taking advantage of the defensive woes. Arlington has been a consistently woeful shooting team most of the season and they failed to exceed 52 points scored in any of their last three home games – SU and ATS losses to Denver, Boise State and Louisiana Tech. The Mavericks’ struggles offensively have crippled their ability to win games and cover pointspreads especially when you consider that Boise State, who is far from a shut down defensive team, kept Arlington to just 46 points. The Mavericks are shooting below 40% for the season and just 31.5% from the perimeter. Arlington’s last game may be extra difficult to get over as they held a double-digit lead at home against Louisiana Tech with about eight minutes left in the second half before the roof caved in and the Bulldogs came back to win 55-52. That was a bitter loss for the Mavericks and there may still be a hangover effect from it heading into tonight.

Texas-San Antonio has suffered some ugly results as of late with a couple of home losses against Utah State and San Jose State followed by two real ugly road losses by 20+ points at Denver and New Mexico State. But playing for the first time in four days, the Roadrunners should be ready for a strong bounce back effort tonight. UTSA has been battered and bruised from a road heavy schedule – only three home games! UTSA has won each of the last three meetings against Arlington on this court dating back to 2010. The wrong team was favored in my opinion at first but it has since been corrected with UTSA opening as +2 point home underdogs and now the short home favorite. Despite the line move, I think there is still enough value to recommend a play on the home side.

Colorado - over USC

After being robbed in Tucson last Thursday, the Buffaloes were understandably a little worn out for Saturday's game, falling as a slight road favorite at Arizona State. With some time to unwind and regain focus, Colorado should be in good position for tonight's Pac-12 home opener. Colorado has four losses but this is one of the best teams in the Pac-12 and Colorado is 6-0 at home. The schedule has been difficult with two losses coming to highly ranked Kansas and Arizona as well as a loss to a Wyoming team that started 13-0. Colorado has defeated Dayton, Baylor, Murray State, Air Force, and Colorado State and this team should not be ruled out for being in the Pac-12 title mix after winning the conference tournament last season. USC has won two of the last three games but both wins came by two points at home, including one win in overtime. Against a very mediocre Cal team USC lost by eight at home last weekend and this simply is not a very good team. USC is just 6-9 on the season and while somehow this team beat Texas early in the year in an ugly overtime game, this is also a team that has lost by eight or more seven times this season, including against several suspect teams. USC has been on a horrible 16-34-1 ATS run including 1-9-1 in the last 11 road games going back to last season and there is no reason to expect that to change tonight.
