This is a "revenge game" for the home side after it lost to Georgia 81-59 on February 8th, 2012.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Bulldogs are coming off an 84-74 OT loss at Mississippi on the 16th. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 19 points and 12 board. Kenny Gaines added 13.

The Razorbacks are coming off a 73-71 win over Missouri on February 16th. Arkansas actually trailed 70-66 with less than one minute remaining. Marshawn Powell led the way with 24 points; BJ Young added 18, while Coty Clarke chipped in 13.

Note that Georgia is in fact just 26-32 ATS in its last 58 when playing against a team with a winning record.

Not only is Arkansas 5-3 ATS in front of the home town crowd this year, but it's also 4-1 ATS in its last five vs. good defensive teams that allow 64 points or less per contest.

Pick Analysis
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Razorbacks are 15-1 at Bud Walton arena this year. Arkansas is 3-3 vs. teams in the top 50 and are still the only team in the SEC to beat the Florida Gators in league play. The Bulldogs sloppy play will once again come back to plague them here, as they're giving up the ball more than 15 times per game, with only two players with a positive assist-turnover ratio. I'm going to lay the points!

When the Dawgs meet the Hogs in a SEC showdown in Arkansas Thursday evening, Georgia will take the court looking to even their slate at 13-13 this campaign knowing they are 11-2 SU and 7-2 ATS this season in games against sub .650 opponents.  That's in direct contrast to the Bulldogs' beastly 1-11 SU and 4-8 ATS mark against greater than .650 opposition this season. With the Razorbacks eyeing up a return rematch with Florida, and just 2-4 SUATS in games before the Gators, look for Georgia to improve to 17-7-1 ATS in this series here tonight.  Grab the points.  We recommend a 1-unit play on Georgia.

Rangers vs. SenatorsFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Pick: UnderFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Rangers will play in Ottawa tonight, coming off a terrible loss to Montreal in their last game. The Senators are without their two best players (Karlsson and Spezza), but they remain competitive due to stellar goaltending from Craig Anderson. The Sens have won back to back games since losing their star defenseman to a severed Achilles tendon.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Here are my keys to the game:
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
1: Goaltending - Craig Anderson has been nearly unbeatable between the pipes for Ottawa, leading the NHL with a 1.57 goals against average. He already has a pair of shutouts this season, and he's been good in past meetings with the Rangers, with a 1.92 goals against average in 18 career starts. Henrik Lundqvist is no slouch either, he's been one of the best goalies in the world over the last few seasons, and he's been good lately, allowing just three goals in his last two starts.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
2: Injuries - Rick Nash won't play for New York, and with Marian Gaborik struggling, the Rangers don't have a lot going for them offensively. Ottawa will really miss Spezza, who led the team in scoring last year, and Karlsson, who led the NHL in scoring for defensemen.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
3: Situational/Motivational - John Tortorella was not at all pleased about his team's effort in their loss to Montreal, and he's likely torn a strip off his players. "I still don't think we have enough of our guys playing consistently with pace," Tortorella said. "Quite honestly I think we're behind in our consistency." The Rangers should respond with a much better effort, and they aren't likely going to give the Sens many scoring chances.

Pick: St. Mary'sFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
With its so-so RPI in the low 50s, Saint Mary’s Big Dance at-large candidacy could be riding on the outcomes of games 48 hours apart (this one vs. BYU, and Saturday’s Bracket Buster vs. Creighton). Fortunately for the Gaels, both of those games are in Moraga, where Randy Bennett’s side has lost only to top-five Gonzaga this season.  Nearly a season’s worth of analyzing BYU has convinced us that the Cougs’ own NCAA Tourney hopes have been mostly damaged by their suspect defense, which had problems containing SMC G Stephen Holt (who scored 22) in the first meeting at Provo on Jan. 16, when the Gaels overcame a 16-point deficit and  won at the buzzer on Matthew Dellavedova’s triple.  SMU 14-2 SU since Xmas, with its only losses to the Zags.

Play: DelawareFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Delaware is 7-0 with 6 spread wins vs teams that average less than 65 points per game and they have won 18 of the last 21 vs losing teams in the second half of the season the past 3 years. They should bounce back here off a tough 72-71 loss here at home to James Madison. Drexel is 2-10 ats after allowing 60 or less and has failed to cover 5 of 6 off a conference win. In games where the total is 120 to 130 they are 1-5 ats. When they play winning teams they are 3-7 straight up and to the spread. Look for Delaware to win and cover the small number here tonight.

Pick: San DiegoFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The top teams in the WCC have done well at home. But from the middle of the pack on down, home court has actually been what amounts to a disadvantage in this conference. San Diego looks to be struggling at first glance with just two wins in the last eight games. But upon further reviewing the recent fortunes of the Toreros, it turns out that each of those losses came against the WCC cream of the crop. When matched against their own level or below, this team is performing well. I don't give Portland much of a benefit playing this game at home, and I'll be happy to lay a very short number with what I believe is simply the superior team. Make it San Diego minus the points for my Thursday free play.

There's only one way to stop Lebron and that's to slow the pace to a crawl. That's what the Bulls do best and the under is 25-10 in the Bulls last 35 home games. Their defense will be primed for this TV showdown, but this Chicago offense is weak, still struggling without Derek Rose, who might not even be back this season. When these teams meet the under is 5-1 the last six meetings, plus the Under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Chicago. Play the Heat/Bulls under the total.

California +7.5

I'm a big fan of this Cal hoops team, who only look like they are getting better the deeper into this season we go. A lot of high expectations for this group early on, but many came crashing down when the Bears dropped three straight big games back in mid-December. They beat Oregon earlier this month by four points at home and have a nice win on the road against Arizona in their last road contest. The Ducks are a very solid 21-5 on the season, but they are playing arguably their worst basketball of the season right now, losing three of their last six games overall and also needed overtime in their last game to beat a Washington State team that most felt they should have had little problems with. Oregon is known to have a very strong home court edge, but keep in mind they have been nothing special at home in conference play this season with zero wins above nine points in of their six home contests this season. Look for Cal to keep things very close here in this one. Play California plus the points here.

There are a lot of reasons to take South Alabama in this game and a whole lot more on why not to take Middle Tennessee State. You always want to play on road underdogs of 10 or more points when they are revenging a home loss vs. an opponent. Over the last five years this situation has come up quite a bit and delivered a 725-538 ATS record for 57.4% winners.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
You also want to play on road underdogs of 10 points or more when they are coming off two or more consecutive wins and facing an opponent with nine or more consecutive wins. With two hot teams and a road dog getting 10 points or more you are 65-31 ATS over the last five seasons by taking that road dog.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
South Alabama is a good team and they are coming off a 24 point blowout win over Louisiana Lafayette. You should play against favorites of 10-19.5 points like Middle Tennessee State when they are off two straight wins against conference rivals and facing an opponent coming off a 20 point or more home blowout. This system is 54-21 since 1997.

Ottawa will play the remainder of the season without reigning Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson (torn Achilles). His abscense will begin to make itself felt as this season progresses and tonight, against a strong team. It must be noted that the Rangers super star golatender Henrik Lundqvist is on fire as is evident by allowing just eight goals during a 4-1-0 mark in his last five starts. When the Euro backstop is in top form the Rags are a hard team to stop. Rangers are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Ottawa.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Clippers    
Play: San Antonio SpursFFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
It’s a battle between two first place teams tonight in Los Angeles as the San Antonio Spurs travel to “Lob City” to take on the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center. The Spurs swept the Clippers out of the playoffs last year but the Clippers have certainly had the Spurs numbers so far this season. The Clips have taken both meetings earlier this year.
The Spurs come into this meeting off of a win against Sacramento Tuesday night. Tony Parker continued his stellar play in that one with 30 points and 11 assists. Parker has been outstanding in his last five games which have seen him average 29 points and 9 assists. Unfortunately, against the Clippers, Parker has been anything but outstanding. Against the Clippers this season Parker has averaged just 8 points on 39% shooting. He will look to improve those numbers this evening.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Clippers are finally showing the rest of the country that they are “the” team in LA and no longer “the other” team in LA. They are fun to watch with young superstars such as Chris Paul and Blake Griffin leading the way. The Clips were playing great basketball prior to the all-star break. Their last four games before the break, all wins, were by an average of 16 points. Paul will look to keep his great play against the Spurs going. In the two previous matchups he has averaged 15 points and 10 assists while shooting 54% from the field.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Prediction: This should be a great basketball game tonight in Los Angeles. Both teams are full of superstars and come into the game rested. It’s true that the Clippers have gotten the better of the Spurs this season but the Spurs are a veteran team and it is definitely on their minds. Look for Popovich to focus on rattling Chris Paul’s game. He is one of the best coaches in the NBA and will have something up his sleeve. This will be a hard fought battle but at the end of the day the Spurs will show why they have the best road record in the NBA. Take the Spurs in a close one 104-101.

Re: Free Picks: Service Plays for Thursday February 21

Thursday night's comp play is the Cal Golden Bears as the road underdog in Eugene as they play against the revenge-minded Ducks.

Cal won a 58-54 decision in Berkeley to start this month, as the Golden Bears increased their series winning streak to a whopping 10 straight games versus the Ducks!

Oregon has won their last 3 games coming into this home contest, but they are on a 1-7 spread slide their last 8 games overall, and they catch the Bears making a little "at-large" noise, as Mike Montgomery's team has won 3 in a row and 5 of their last 6 overall.

Dominic Artis is still hampered by an ankle injury, so rather than back Dana Altman's crew to end their series losing skid, I will take the generous points and look for the Golden Bears to once again be a thorn in the side of the Ducks.

2* CALIFORNIA

Though the Hokies have lost eight straight games, you have to figure we'll be getting their best shot tonight at home against Duke, a team who always carries a target on its back to begin with and one that also happened to beat Va Tech three times last season.....

Said Hokies star guard Erick Green, "This is every kid's dream - to play against Duke, national TV, prime time and in front of the whole world. This is a big moment, not just for myself but for the whole team." In spite of his team's poor season, Green has had an exemplary campaign, particularly here at home.  He's averaging 30.5 points his last four games in Blacksburg.  The senior had 29 points Saturday in an overtime loss to NC State.  Still it wasn't enough though.  But the Hokies continue to be competitive as their last three losses at home have all come by single digits.

Duke is coming off a loss last weekend at Maryland, so the knee-jerk reaction is to back them here.  But this is a big number to lay on the conference road, particularly with the Blue Devils' .500 road record in ACC play. Two of their three conference road wins have come by a combined six points.  Two of their three wins last season against Virginia Tech came by five points or less.   Duke will get back on track with a win here, but they won't cover.

The Clippers beat the Spurs 106-84 at home on Nov. 7 and shortly came away with a 92-87 win in San Antonio. Los Angeles has simply not forgot about getting swept by the Spurs in last years playoffs. Due to the Clippers struggles without Chris Paul, this team finds itself having to prove that they are one of the elite contenders to win it all. No better time to do that, than a nationally televised game on TNT against the Western Conference leading Spurs. The Clippers have had plenty of time to prepare for this game, as this will be their first time playing since beating the Lakers 125-101 last Thursday. While I don't expect the Clippers to win in a blowout, they should have no trouble covering this small number in front of their home crowd.

Los Angeles is 15-5 in home games when playing 6 or less games over a 14 span in the last three seasons, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games vs a team with a road winning % better than .600 and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. San Antonio is just 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games vs a team with a winning % above .600 and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games on Thursday.

Stanford at Oregon St.FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Prediction: StanfordFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM

Great time to back Stanford in this virtual pick 'em spot, as they face an Oregon State team coming off a ten-point road loss at Washington to drop the Beavers to a dismal 3-10 record in the conference. Oregon State managed to shoot just 34% in that defeat, and they don't match up well on paper against this Stanford team. The Beavers had one of their best shooting efforts of the season in Stanford earlier this year, making 49% of their shots but still falling by 8 points in an 81-73 defeat. Not sure how much they would have lost by if they didn't have that great shooting effort, but we'll likely get a glimpse of that tonight as that number was well above the Beavers' average output. Stanford is in a "bounce-back" spot here after allowing 54% shooting against UCLA - the first time they allowed at least 50% shooting since January 24th. And they rebounded from that dismal performance with a 31-point win at Utah the following game. Stanford defense puts the clamps down on the Beavers and control this game from the opening tip.

Los Angeles have home court, are rested & healthy, have won 4 straight overall, including both meetings with San Antonio this season. Plus, Popovich may save some key minutes for Golden State tomorrow night.
