SPORTS WAGERS

MARQUETTE -9½ over Seton Hall

The Halls' 12-5 overall record has them overvalued and we'll look to take advantage of that again here. Prior to conference play, the Pirates were 12-2 but their strength of schedule ranked 233rd in the country. After Big East games against Notre Dame, Louisville and Providence, Seton Hall's SOS increased but they were exposed with double-digit losses in all three games with two of those being on its home floor. They're likely to be exposed again, this time on the road, where the Golden Eagles have won 18 straight.

Marquette doesn't usually fair too well in close games. They should have little trouble keeping a distance here. The Golden Eagles schedule has been the 28th toughest in the country and after playing UConn, Georgetown and Pitt, they take a huge step down in class against these imposters. Seton Hall can compete and beat weak clubs. Against the powers in the Big East they cannot and Marquette qualifies as such on its home hardwood.

Washington Wizards +4

The Wizards aren't exactly a great team to back on the road, but with the way this team is playing right now I think they are showing some solid value against the Kings. Sacramento had a difficult time beating the Cavaliers at home in their last game, while Washington won their third straight with an impressive 120-91 victory over the Magic. Personally I think the Wizards have an excellent shot at winning this game outright. The Kings defense of late has been awful, allowing at least 110 points in each of their last five games. Washington on the other hand has held 9 of their last 11 opponents under 100 points. Adding even more value is the fact that the Kings are just 3-13 ATS in home games after allowing 100 points or more in 4 straight games over the last three seasons.

Brandon Lee

New Orleans Hornets +7½

The Celtics come in having won six straight and are clearly playing much better basketball, but I think they are being overvalued against a Hornets team that is playing extremely well of late. New Orleans has won five of six and are more than capable of keeping this game close. You also have to factor in that Boston only beat the Bobcats at home by 11 in their last game and could be looking ahead to Friday's big home game against the Bulls. Take the Points!

Jack Jones

Indiana Pacers -1½

The Indiana Pacers have been one of the most underrated teams in the league all season. They are off to a 24-15 start this season, which would have them as the No. 3 seed in the East if the season were to end today, just 1.5 games behind first-place Miami.

Indiana doesn't get a ton of recognition because they are in a small market. Plus, they play a 'boring' style of basketball. That style has proven to be effective considering they are the best defensive team in the league, allowing just 88.9 points/game on 41.1% shooting.

The Pacers got their offense going in a 103-76 win at Charlotte last night, and they'll certainly have an excellent chance to keep it going against Orlando tonight. The Magic have lost 11 of their last 12, and they are giving up 113.6 points/game over their last five contests.

Indiana has won four straight meetings with Orlando. The Pacers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. The Magic are 5-17 ATS in their last 22 home games following a road trip of 7 or more days. Orlando is 0-8 ATS in a home game where the total is between 180 and 189.5 points this season. Bet the Pacers Wednesday.

Jeff Alexander

Fresno State +4½

Playing against any team (Wyoming in this case) that has covered the spread in 4 of its last 5 games, provided it has won 80% or more of its games on the season and is matched up against a team that has won 20% to 40% of its games, has produced a 44-22 (66.7%) ATS record the last 5 seasons. Take the points with Fresno State behind this solid system.

Washington Wizards at Sacramento Kings
Play: Sacramento Kings

The (7-28) Washington Wizards of the NBA Eastern Conference Southeast division will take on the (14-24) Sacramento Kings of the Western Conference Pacific division in 2013 NBA action. Washington has won their last 3 both Straight Up and Against The Spread since the return of point guard John Wall. Sacramento is 4-2 ATS their last 6 vs. The Wizards and are 2-3-1 ATS their last 6 at home. Sacramento gets the home cover.
