It's good to play after getting some rest. But in this case, the Heat could be rusty from having too much rest. Miami last played on Thursday.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
I envision the Heat toying around with the Raptors, whose young players will be highly motivated going against LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and former teammate Chris Bosh.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
It's easy to overlook the Raptors with their lack of stars. Toronto, though, often slips under-the-radar getting good line value. The Raptors had won 10 of 13 before losing four in a row, including blowing 19 and 20-point leads against Philadelphia and Milwaukee. The Raptors got back to winning, beating the Lakers at home in their last game this past Sunday, 108-103. That should provide a nice confidence boost for the Raptors.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Toronto quietly is 9-3-1 ATS in its last 13 games versus Eastern Conference opponents. The Raptors are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games in Miami. Only once in their last 19 games have the Raptors lost by more than 12 points.

This game fits the nice totals system be low which has cashed 9 of the last 10 times dating to 1999. We want to play the under for road dogs with rest like the Lakers that were on the road with a point spread between +3 to -3 and scored 90 or less points on 45% or less shooting, vs an opponent like Memphis that scored 90 or less as a home favorite of 5 or more in their last game. This system with an average total around 184 points averages around 170 points. Memphis has played under all 12 times after scoring 85 or less points last out and 7 of 8 off a straight up favored loss. They are coming off a non conference game and have stayed under in 13 of 14 in this role. Over the past few seasons they have also played under 9 of 11 times at home after scoring 90 or less at home in their last game. The Lakers have stayed under in 5 of 7 off a loss by 10 or more points and will be stuck in a pace less half court game against a slow it down Memphis team. Look for this one to stay under the total.

It can be a little nerve-racking to go against the defending World Champions. The Heat are capable of a big win every time out, a fact that the Raptors are well aware of.

The champs have had an extended layoff here though and they're laying double-digits at the betting window.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Facing a scrappy Raptors team, which has been competitive nearly every time it has taken the floor, I feel the number may prove a little high.

The Heat haven't played for nearly a week. Their most recent game was last Thursday, at LA.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Rest can be nice, particularly after an extended road trip. However, that's a pretty long layoff. I wouldn't be surprised if the players are slightly out of sync. Adding a new player (Chris Anderson) to the mix may not help in that regard.

Note that the Heat are 0-2 ATS this season, when playing with three or more day's rest in between games.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
On 11/29, the Heat had four day's off in between games. Laying 13 points, they barely defeated a severely depleted San Antonio team.

A couple of weeks before that, they had three day's off before a game vs. Milwaukee. Laying 9.5 points, the Heat won by seven.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Raptors are also well-rested; but not overly so. They last played on Sunday, earning a victory over the Lakers.

The Raptors obviously don't have the type of stars that the Heat do. However, they are playing well and working hard right now. Prior to the win over LA, they'd lost four in a row. However, a closer look reveals that that those four losses came by an average of less than seven points, none greater than 11.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Going back further finds Toronto at a profitable 12-6-1 ATS its last 19. Note that the Raptors are 5-1 ATS when off an "upset" win.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
While they've admittedly had some trouble with Miami, the Raptors are still a solid 14-9 ATS the past couple of seasons, when listed as road underdogs in the 9.5 to 12 range. During the same stretch, the Heat are 10-17-2 ATS as home favorites in the 9.5 to 12 range. Consider grabbing the points.

Pick: UtahFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Rather quietly, Washington has been on the ascent, especially since star G John Wall returned from a knee injury earlier this month.  Not only is Wall’s stat line improving with each outing, but the Wizards have won four of their last six outright, which is almost 1995-96 Bulls-like stuff in D.C. Moreover, Washington has been providing some decent pointspread value since before RG III first hurt his knee for the hometown Redskins vs. the Ravens in early December, standing 18-6-1 vs. spread from Dec. 4 thru Monday's win at Portland.  The cover streak has also reached seven in a row after that success at the Rose Garden vs. Blazers.  Still, this is the last game of an extended 5-game western swing for Randy Wittman’s troops, and Utah has made a fortress out of EnergySolutions Arena, winning and covering last four in Salt Lake City and now 12-5 vs. spread as host. Jamaal Tinsley deserves some kudos for helping keep Utah afloat in absence of injured PG Mo Williams (still rehabbing thumb injury), as Jazz have won 7 of first 12 with Tinsley manning the point.

We’re usually not looking for spots to buck a hot Valpo side that’s won its last 5, and 8 of its last 9 SU, and has assumed the “team-to-beat” label in the Horizon League after last week’s stirring comeback win at Detroit. But Brian Wardle’s well-drilled Green Bay is making some noise as well, with SU wins in its last four, coinciding with the recent emergence of 6-7 frosh F Jordan Fouse, who has scored in DDs in three of last four for the surging Fighting Phoenix. Play UW Green Bay

Pick: DenverFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Denver is 25-18 SU and 24-18 ATS; it's coming off a 121-118 OT win over OKC as a 1 point underdog on the 20th. The Nuggets have won four straight in this series, averaging 104 points in those contests. Denver is in fact one of the NBA's highest scoring teams at 103.1 per game.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
It also leads the league in second-chance points, offensive rebounds and points in the paint.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
One player you'll want to keep your eyes on is Denver's Ty Lawson who has scored at least 20 points in all four games during his team's series winning streak.

And note that Denver is 9-5 ATS in its last 14 vs. good offensive teams that score 99-plus points per contest.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Houston is 22-21 SU and 21-21-1 ATS; it's coming off a 100-94 win at Charlotte on the 21st.

I'll caution in reading too much into that victory, as the Rockets have really struggled in all facets of the game to start the new year; note that they've averaged just 94.1 PPG over their last eight games, and lead the league in turnovers.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The defense though is mostly to blame as it ranks last in points allowed at 103.2 PPG.

And note that Houston is just 6-7 ATS this year vs. good offensive teams that score 99-plus points per contest.

These teams are clearly moving in opposite directions right now, and I fully expect the surging Nuggets to take full advantage!

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Life isn’t easy on the Big Ten road this season. As of this writing, only one team – Indiana – has failed to taste defeat away from home. And even though Minnesota’s lone conference loss came on the road against the Hoosiers, Tubby’s Gophers find themselves in a tough spot against the less-talented Wildcats in Welsh-Ryan Arena. That’s because Minnesota takes the court off a huge triple-revenger against mighty Michigan on Thursday with a game against league-leading Wisconsin on deck after today’s fracas. The ATS archives tell us Minny is a moneyburner on the road after scrapping with the Wolverines (1-4 ATS) and before battling the Badgers (1-3 ATS). The Purple Cats may be off to a 1-3 SUATS start in Big Ten play at press time (and their lone quality win came against Baylor back in early December) but they’ve been golden against the Gophers at home of late, winning and covering four straight meetings. We also don’t mind backing the Wildcats in their coveted home dog role where they’ve gone 3-1 ATS the last four when playing with Big Ten revenge (lost to Minnesota on 1/6). Gophers grounded in Evanston today. We recommend a 1-unit lay on Northwestern.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
There are a lot of things you will see in this NBA game and one thing you won't see: defense! Both teams prefer an uptempo, attacking style. Denver is 4th in the NBA in points scored, 25th in points allowed, and the over is 14-6 in the Nuggets last 20 road games. Houston is all about running for coach Kevin McHale, second in scoring, 30th in points allowed. The over is 6-1 in the Rockets last 7 home games and 18-7-1 over the total in their last 26 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game. Play the Nuggets/Rockets over the total.

Pick: Washington StateFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Dana Altman is doing his usual sensational coaching job and as a result Oregon has now taken over sole possession of the top spot in the PAC-12. I put quite a bit of emphasis into coaching when handicapping college hoops, and as a result I rarely try to beat this Oregon team. But even the toughest coaches and squads have flat spots on their schedule, and this sure looks like the pancake for Oregon. The Ducks are off the SoCal road sweep, which was preceded by the home wins against the two 'Zona entries. Up next is a huge game with Washington where a win would really put Oregon in tremendous shape to win the league title. I don't see the visitors having much chance to win this outright, but Washington State should be good enough to at least keep this contest competitive. I'll tab Washington State getting doubles as tonight's free play.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Golden State Warriors
Play: Oklahoma City Thunder     

The Thunder are the best thing going in the NBA right now. The bounced back from a loss to Denver to roll the Clippers on the road last night in a huge clash. The next night they are up the coast to face a surprising Golden State team but at -2 there is still tremendous value. If the Warriors decide to play the slower pace they have been winning with this year that might actually play to OKC’s favour on the second of a back to back. It has been almost two years since the Thunder lost to the Warriors and they have covered 4 straight against Golden State.

Phoenix +138 over SACRAMENTOFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
This is an interesting spot for the Suns. After a shaky transfer of coaching power in which GM Lance Blanks chose Lindsay Hunter over Suns assistants Dan Majerle and Elston Turner, which in turn caused the two assistants to walk out on the team (and haven't been seen since), Phoenix will play its first game under its new coach. The Suns are at the bottom of the Western Conference at 13-28. They have lost 13 of 15 and are just 2½ games ahead of Washington for the worst record in the NBA. Chaos surrounds them right now yet the line doesn't reflect any of that, which has our attention. The number suggests a good response by the Suns and it's a good spot for that to occur.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
For the Kings, this game is sandwiched between returning home from a 1-2 road trip and games on deck against Oklahoma City and Denver. The Kings are an erratic bunch that are much more appealing taking back points than spotting them. The Kings also don't match up well with Phoenix, having lost to them in four straight including a nine-point loss this year in the two teams only meeting this season. Phoenix outright.

These two sit at the bottom of the Big East with 1-4 records but the Pirates of Seton Hall do not have a notable win on its slate all season. The Halls' best win came against DePaul? Wake Forest perhaps? Either way, it's not a ringing endorsement. Their out-of conference schedule was filled with cream puffs and their strength of schedule ranks at 121st in the nation. Prior to playing Big East competition, the Pirates SOS ranked 198.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Bulls’ strength of schedule ranks 32nd in the country. They have wins over a solid group that includes Georgetown, Georgia, UCF and George Mason. South Florida plays a strong defensive style and that should bode well here against a careless host that turns the ball over at an alarmingly high rate. Not only do we get the superior, more disciplined team here, we also get some points to go with them and in a game they can easily win, that definitely works for us.

Boston +111 over N.Y. RANGERSFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Talent wise, the Rangers have plenty but they seem to be missing something with the intangibles in the early going. After two games, the Rangers looked slower and sloppier than both of its opponents and one of them were these Bruins. The consequence of being a step behind your opponent is that is leads to penalties and the Rangers have had to kill 12 of them in their two games. Coach John Torterella insists on mixing up his lines and that's not working either.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Bruins are 2-0 out of the gate with wins over the Rangers and Jets. They out-shot (34-21) and out-chanced the Rangers by a wide margin in the opener while manhandling them physically. The B's look very sharp and they're playing with confidence while the Rangers and prized free agent Rick Nash are suddenly feeling a little pressure after an 0-2 start. It's early and two games are a small sample but the Rangers are going to have to show us a lot more before getting endorsed at a near pick’em against a quality opponent like this one.

OT included. The Penguins don't need a lot of introduction. They're a true contender and they haven't disappointed with a 2-0 start. However, the two teams they've defeated are a combined 0-5. The loss of Jordan Staal and Zbynek Michalek is significant while not adding anyone to compensate. Marc Andre Fleury has been extremely inconsistent over the past couple of years and that makes the Penguins a little too risky spotting a tag like this one. Toronto has played well against the Penguins with one win in three tries last year and with all games being decided by a goal and one Pittsburgh win coming in OT.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Toronto has played two strong games. They were clearly the superior team against Buffalo and deserved better but ran into a super-hot Ryan Miller. Perhaps the best news for the Maple Leafs is that Ben Scrivens looks solid in net and coach Randy Carlyle is not going to mess with that right now. The Leafs have played six periods of hockey and have not been outplayed in any of them. The Buds are also likely to see the return of Jake Gardiner here, who was playing up to Dec. 8 with the Marlies before suffering a mild concussion. He practiced with the team yesterday and insists he's ready to go. First among all rookie defencemen in both points and minutes last season, Gardiner is a huge talent that can quickly move or pass the puck out of the zone to create offense. Things are coming together nicely for the Leafs and they're certainly worthy of consideration at this lucrative price.

I like how the Tar Heels have been playing lately, winning by ten over Maryland on Saturday in a game that wasn't even that close and beating Florida State on the road as three point underdogs. This is a talented team that just needed to come together a little bit, and I think the victory over the Seminoles was the catalyst that is going to lead them to a strong second half of the season. Georgia Tech on the other hand is going nowhere. They have lost four straight to open up SEC play and five in a row against the spread. The Yellow Jackets lost their two road games to NC State and Duke by double digits, and while the Tar Heels are a step below those two teams, they aren't far off.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Phoenix Suns should be ready to play the Sacramento Kings tonight coming off a six day rest period; their largest break of the season. From a scheduling and handicapping point of view, Sacramento is now playing its fourth game in five days and three games more than Phoenix during that six day break, which should translate into a rested and ready Suns team poised for a top notch effort.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
After a dismal 2-13 record over the course of a month and a half, the Suns front office decided to shake things up. In comes new head coach Lindsey Hunter. Hunter, who was the player development director, replaced Alvin Gentry who seemed to have lost control of his team as they dropped to the bottom of the Pacific Division. Since taking over the team Hunter has run long practices and made public that this team will now emphasize defense.  "I'm a defensive guy," Hunter said. "That's the identity that we're going to try to create, is being a tough, nasty, defensive-minded team, and we'll go from there."
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Sacramento is a team with a 25-16-1 record to the over. However, three of their last four games have gone under the total. With Phoenix's new approach combined with the fact that the Suns have not broken the 100-point barrier in their last 10 games and the offense may be rusty due to the break, we'll make a recommendation on the under.

Pittsburgh Penguins -1.5 +146FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Toronto Maple Leafs started the season with a 2-1 win in Montreal and then went home to lose to Buffalo 2-1 in their home opener on Monday night. Toronto actually looked better in the game that they lost, but they didn't capitalize on scoring opportunities including power plays. The Pittsburgh Penguins have gotten off to a hot start with two road wins in Philadelphia (3-1) and New York (6-3). They now come home to play in their home opener in front of what should be an electric crowd. The Penguins have managed 9 goals in 2 games with Crosby only putting up 1 assist. James Neal has 3 goals while Malkin has 4 assists. Note that the Penguins led the Eastern Conference in home wins going 29-10-2 last season at home. The Maple Leafs were 17-21-3 on the road. Marc-Andre Fleury will most likely make his second start of the season, and he allowed just 1 goal against in his first start. Take note that the Maple Leafs are just 5-16 in their last 21 vs a team with a winning record and 8-23 in their last 31 games overall. The Penguins are 46-19 in their last 65 games playing on 2 days rest, and 19-7 in their last 26 home games dating back to last year. Surprisingly the Leafs split 4 games with Pittsburgh last season, and both of Pittsburgh's wins were by 1 goal, but I expect a big Penguins win in their home opener against a much less talented Maple Leafs squad. When Pittsburgh shows up to play they should be able to take care of the weaker Eastern Conference opponents, and tonight I think we see that in their home opener coming off two big road wins.

Vancouver Canucks -1.5 +192FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Calgary has started off the year with two losses at home. Their home opener was a disappointing 4-1 loss against San Jose, and then Monday they came back from down 3-0 to tie the game up with Anaheim before losing another tough one 5-4. Vancouver has had similar problems, although they do have a single point with their latest 3-2 shootout loss to Edmonton at home. They dropped their home opener to Anaheim 7-3. The Canucks are going missing some key players to injury, but they have a very deep squad and should be able to get through it. The Canucks went 27-10-4 at home last season, while the Flames were just 14-17-10 on the road. Last season these two teams split their 6 meetings, with Vancouver winning by 4 goals in their first two meetings and then later by just one goal in overtime. Cory Schneider is getting the start tonight for Vancouver, and I expect a big bounce back game from him as now it looks like him and Luongo are battling for starts for the time being. Miika Kiprusoff hasn't had a hot start either with a .830 SV% so it will be interesting to see how he does tonight as well. Note that the Flames are 8-20 in their last 28 road games, 3-10 in their last 13 vs Western Conference opponents, and 1-5 in their last 6 divisional games. The Canucks are 50-18 in their last 68 vs divisional opponents and 6-2 in their last 8 home games vs the Flames. Although the Canucks didn't have as much success against Calgary last season, they are 10-4 in their last 14 meetings with the Flames. Right now I have the Flames as one of the weaker Western Conference teams and, although the Canucks are winless, I still have them as one of the best teams in the West. I think Vancouver finally shows up to play and they get a big win at home. At +192 I will take Vancouver to win by a few tonight.
