The gears are starting to grind a bit at UCLA, as a collection of frosh stars who all want their hands on the ball has caused Ben Howland to lose even more hair as the Bruins (have dropped 3 of their last 4 SU) begin to slide down the Big Dance seeding scale. As perplexing as Lorenzo Romar’s U-Dub has been (losers of 4 of last 5 SU, but have covered 7 of 9), the Huskies remain hard to beat by a margin, with their last six losses all by single-digits.  UW broke its recent losing streak vs. Arizona State last Saturday, when Romar finally “let the dogs loose” in a 96-point explosion (the most since Feb. 2011 vs. Cal) after spending much of the season playing at a slower pace. Big points work tonight at Pauley Pavilion.  Play Washington

We'll be the first to admit the Panthers have been practically clawless this season.  However, after opening the season 2-9 ATS in their first eleven lined games, Milwaukee has rallied to cash six of its last ten contests.  They have also been ultra reliable at home when playing off a previous home loss, going 19-3 SU and 16-3 ATS in this role when playing on three or more days of rest, including 11-1 ATS in conference clashes.  With the Panthers returning home off an embarrassing 31-point loss, and the visiting Titans having cashed in only five of 14 tries as favorites this season, the points become the play here today.  We recommend a 1-unit play on Wisconsin Milwaukee.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
What to expect: We're being asked to lay plenty of juice (as always) with the puck-line in this matchup, but I actually feel the line could be much higher. Winnipeg hasn't won a game by multiple goals since back on January 25th, and it needed an empty-netter to do so on that night. Tuesday's narrow 3-2 overtime win over Florida certainly didn't impress me all that much, and I believe the Jets will be in for another fight against the Leafs on Thursday. Toronto has suffered just one loss by more than a goal over its last five games, and is coming off a galvanizing 3-2 road win in Washington on Tuesday. The Leafs have been at their absolute best on the road this season, posting a solid 4-1 record. They split four meetings with the Jets last season, losing both games here in Winnipeg, but each of those losses came by a single goal. Note that the Jets continue to play without Dustin Byfuglien, and he isn't expected to return from a lower-body injury on Thursday night. The Jets have been scuffing along lately, and I don't see them busting out with a convincing win tonight. The Leafs continue to play a gritty style of hockey on the road, and get another solid effort between the pipes in a game that goes right down to the wire.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Isles are 4-4-1 and are coming off back to back losses, including a 4-2 setback to Pittsburgh on the 5th. It's interesting to note that the Isles are just 1-3 (-1.6 units) after allowing 4 goals or more this year.

The Rangers are 4-5 and are coming off a lacklustre 3-1 setback at New Jersey on the 5th.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Note though that the Rangers are 2-1 (+1.1 units) after scoring 1 goal or less in their previous contest this year.

So where's the value in this one?
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Both teams have been struggling of late, but the home side has a big opportunity to return to form against a club that it's enjoyed plenty of success against, going 10-3-1 in the last 14 in this series. The Rangers have in fact taken the last seven in front of the home town crowd, winning by a combined 31-10.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Rangers' goaltender Henrik Lundqvist started six of those games, posting a 1.32 GAA, and three shutouts.

And that doesn't bode well for the Isles, who were 0 for 7 with the man advantage in each of their last two outings.

Sometimes a favorite is a favorite for a reason, and in this case, I absolutely have no problem in recommending to lay the steeper price!

The Huskies snapped a four game losing streak with a win over Arizona State on Saturday, and while they have lost four of their last five straight up, they have covered the spread in seven of their last nine overall. They have a record of 4-3 on the road this season, but all three of those losses were close, including a 57-53 loss at Arizona in their last game away from home.

Washington is in California Thursday night, taking on a struggling UCLA team that has lost three of four. The Bruins lost at home to USC in overtime in their last game, getting out-rebounded 44-36, and hitting just 2-of-19 from beyond the arc. Shabazz Muhammad had 22 points in a losing effort, despite suffering from flu like symptoms, and receiving two liters of IV fluid before the game.

The Bruins have failed to cover the points in each of their last three home games, and in five of their last seven overall. UCLA split their two games with the Huskies in 2012, winning at home by a score of 75-69, the six point margin of victory would not be enough to cover the spread in this game. Prior to that victory, the Huskies had won four straight meetings with UCLA dating back to 2010.

Washington has been a good bet versus Pac-12 opponents, with a record of 7-2 ATS in their last nine games within the conference.

It is my opinion that the Bruins are one of the more overrated teams in college basketball, and their poor performance against the spread this season seems to support that opinion. They are giving up quite a few points against a very good Huskies team, and I think Washington will keep it close, covering the number easily.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Idaho is a better team than their record indicates but they have had some bad breaks. They are 9-12 on the year but outscoring opponents by 0.6 ppg. New Mexico State is a good team, no doubt about it, but they are only outscoring conference opponents by 6.5 ppg for a 9-2 record.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Idaho did lose earlier in the year at home to New Mexico State, but that was after getting out to a 42-27 halftime deficit. They battled back and I think they are going to carry that momentum into tonight's contest. New Mexico State has not only won nine in a row, but also six in a row at the pay window. Idaho on the other hand has lost four in a row against the spread. Oddsmakers have over-adjusted and now you get a matchup of one team being over-valued and the other under.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Idaho is 7-1 ATS in the role of an underdog this year and 82-53 ATS on the road against conference opponents since 1997. New Mexico State is just 36-62 ATS after scoring 75 points or less in two straight games since 1997.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Two long time NY Rivals the Isles and Rangers go head to head tonight in MSG. The Islanders despite of the line, must not be under estimated, especially with super star John Tavares in their lineup. When this kid is hot, he can control an entire game. The slick gritty center has 11 points on the season, but has still not began on one of his patented explosive streaks. At 3-1-1 on the road, only two Eastern Conference teams (New Jersey, Toronto) have more points than the Islanders' seven away from home. I know the Islanders have lost 7 straight at MSG, but all good and bad runs must eventually come to an end. Thats what Im betting happens tonight.

North Carolina State vs Duke
Pick: Over

Revenge time for Duke! At least they hope as North Carolina State is in town after topping Duke, 84-76, four weeks ago. That game sailed over the total which is not a surprise as both offense are outstanding, loaded with talent and scoring options inside and out. Duke is on a 5-1 run over the total, while NC State is on a 3-1 run over. Defensive oriented Miami just hung 79 on the Wolfpack and Duke is off a blowout win over over Florida State scoring 79 and the Over is 13-3-1 in the last 17 meetings. between these foes Play Duke/NC State over the total.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Rough sledding for Illinois since the 12-0 start, and not the easiest opponent to stop the bleeding against. But if there's a spot for the Illini to jump up and spring an upset, this might be it. They'll at least get the tempo to their liking as Indiana loves to run. The Hoosiers are off Michigan and have a huge Sunday date at Ohio State, so the scheduling dynamics are there. I also have to think Illinois approaches this as a game they have to win if they're going to have any shot at all to get to March Madness. The Illini are 2-7 in conference play. They will have to win their four remaining league home games and will probably need at least one road win to maintain any hopes. I think a loss here pretty much ends it, so I'll look for the home team to pull out all the stops. The number is big enough so that Illinois really just needs to compete to have a good chance at covering. Let's give Illinois plus the points a play tonight.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Arizona State is the better team here and despite getting tons of backing in their last game at Washington, they might be priced cheaply here. They opened +5.5 at Washington and were bet all the way down to +3, losing the game 96-92 to the Huskies. It was not a great effort defensively for the Sun Devils as they trailed by double-digits most of the game while allowing Washington to hit 36 of 68 from the field. However, they never quit, and shot 37-58, 64% from the floor themselves in making a valiant comeback. They catch a Cal team off two home wins over Oregon and Oregon State, and one that is not as efficient on the road as they are at home. Cal is 2-3 SU and ATS on the road this year, and they lack the inside game to hurt the Sun Devils like Washington did. Arizona State is 4-1 SU at home this year, smashing UCLA by 18 in its last game on this court. Herb Sendek will shore up the defense after allowing 96 to Washington and the Sun Devils should get another home win.

Pick: Arkansas State +11FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Middle Tennessee State has now put together back-to-back 20-win seasons, as they are off to a 20-4 start to this season and are a perfect 11-0 at home. Last year they were denied an NCAA Tournament bid because they lost to this same Arkansas State team in the conference tournament. The Red Wolves have been a thorn for Middle Tennessee as they beat them again this year in a thrilling overtime 6-point win. The Red Wolves matchup well and certainly have the talent to hang in this one, and Arkansas St. has covered their last five vs. a winning team. The Blue Raiders have struggled vs. winning teams, now at 1-7 ATS in their last eight. Take Arkansas St.

Cal Poly is in the middle of the pack in the Big West, but come conference tournament time I think this team could be a shocker. They share the ball well and play great defense. This big West Conference is pretty is to figure out. The solid teams win at home. The bad teams are even competitive at home. Cal Poly has not lost all year at home in conference and are looking to make up for a horrible defensive night the last time they played at Pacific. I like the home team no matter what in this conference. Take Cal Poly.

In their earlier meeting this year in College Park Maryland shot lights out. It was the worst defensive performance for Vtech this year. Maryland is a very good young team, but they have to prove to me that they can win on the road on a consistent basis. This is a pretty generous spread for the Hokies who are good at home. Take Vtech.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Los Angeles Kings are off to a sluggish start following their amazing Stanley Cup run from a year ago. The Kings' playoffs run included 17 of 20 playoff games allowing 2 goals or less, but things have been much different to start off 2012-13. The Kings have allowed 2 goals or more in every game. Nashville has a winning record despite playing seven of their nine on the road, which includes all of their last seven. They come home having taken each of their last three - all on the road. The Kings have faltered against teams that are coming off of scoring 5+ in their previous game at just 3-8 in their last 11. Nashville has been a force at home where they are 25-11 in their last 36. Nashville gets the call.

Washington has been forced into a halfcourt style in most of their PAC-12 games, as opposing teams have done their best to slow down Lorenzo Romar’s talented roster.  The Huskies lost four straight to close out January, held to just 65 points per game during that span.  But Romar instructed his team to turn up the speed in their last game, against Arizona State, and the Huskies snapped that skid with a wild 96-92 victory that flew Over the total by more than 50 points!

UCLA will run with Washington.  The Bruins excel playing at an uptempo style, and they’re fully rested and ready following a week long hiatus.  Frosh guard Jordan Adams: "We needed this week to focus on the little things. Attention to detail. All the stuff that's making us lose.”  Forward Travis Wear: “I think it helps us now because it helps us refocus going forward."
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Bruins have the best set of athletes in the conference, including future NBA lottery picks Shabazz Muhammad and Kyle Anderson.  They’ve scored at least 74 in eight of their last ten wins, while averaging more than 84 points per game in those victories – with NBA talent on hand, Ben Howland is quite comfortable letting his squad play at the fastest pace of any team in the PAC-12.  Expect an uptempo affair throughout, sending this game up and over the total.

Illinois couldn't have picked a better time to host the Hoosiers, and Indiana is caught in an awful motivational spot coming off a big home win against then-#1 Michigan and having to play at #10 Ohio State next. That sets up a "sandwhich" spot for the Hoosiers as they are in the dreaded letdown-lookahead combination. The Illini are a former shell of the team that was awesome in the first half of the season, however, if there's anything that can motivate a college basketball team currently struggling, it would have to be hosting the #1 team in the country. Not exactly calling for an outright win by the home dog, but Indiana has too much going on to win this game in a blowout.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Nuggets have been on fire of late, winning seven games in a row (six of them here on their home court) and against some pretty tough competition, including Oklahoma City and Houston twice. Now they take on a defensive-minded Chicago Bulls team, but we'll back Denver as the Nuggets should be able to dictate a high-paced tempo here on their home floor. The Nuggets have posted triple-digits on the scoreboard in eight consecutive games, including no less than 112 points in each of their last three. Chicago simply doesn't have the type of offense to keep up with that scoring, and while we may have had a different take on this matchup if it was being played in Chicago, the home court advantage allowed Denver to speed this game up and out of the Bulls' comfort zone. Denver wins this one going away.

Prediction: FurmanFOR FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The simulator shows a high probability that Furman will win this game in convincing fashion. UNCGB likes to play offense, but the same cannot be said of their defensive skills. They rank 338th allowing 77.2 PPG, 327th allowing 38% three point shooting, Furman will be able to play an inside-out offensive scheme, which will lead to high percentage looks at the basket. UNCGB just does not play aggressive defense and are horrid in help (rotating) defense. Sim shows that Furman will shoot between 40 and 46% from the field and will get at least 40 boards. In past games, Furman is a rock solid 11-2 ATS (+8.8 Units) when they grab 40 to 44 rebounds in a game over the last 3 seasons while UNCGB is just 1-7 ATS (-6.7 Units) when their opponents make 40% to 46% of their shots in a game this season. Take Furman.
