Situational Analysis
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Winnipeg's achilles heel has always been its play on the road, and it's had an especially difficult time whenever playing in New Jersey, having dropped five straight in this series on the road. Most recently the Jets are coming off 5-3 loss at Philadelphia yesterday.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Devils are 6-1-2 at home this year. After losing 5-1 to the Capitals on Saturday, venerable goaltender Martin Brodeur is expected back between the pipes. Brodeur is 5-1-1 with a 1.84 GAA over his last seven outings, and has posted a minuscule 1.57 GAA in winning his last five starts vs. the Jets franchise.

Pick Analysis
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Jets are mired in an 0 for 21 slump on the power-play right now. Their penalty kill has been equally as inept of late, allowing three goals on six opportunities in the loss to the Flyers. I believe the home side takes full advantage of this tired Winnipeg team. Lay the price!

Pick: Dallas MavericksFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
These were once the kings of the western conference, now they are both struggling. The Lakers have been inconsistent all season long, though they have won two straight games. However, they still are just 1-5 ATS their last six games. Meanwhile, Dallas seems to be playing much better since Dirk Nowitzki returned. The Mavs are 12-6 S/U the last 18 and 16-3 ATS the last 19. The Mavs are also scoring in bunches, eclipsing the 100 point mark in six straight games and 16 of the last 18. Lakers pounded the Mavs here in Dallas back in November, but you can't count that contest as Nowitzki was out back then. Lakers have struggled against the Southwest division, going 4-9 ATS their last 13. Meanwhile, the Mavs have done well against the Pacific division, posting a 41-19 ATS mark their last 60 tries. Mavs will be looking for some payback for that beating they took on this floor last November. Don't expect Dallas to let up on the Lakers. Take Dallas.

The Ducks will host the Avs on Sunday night, and Colorado is coming off a loss yesterday afternoon versus the Kings. The Avs couldn't get anything going offensively, scoring just once after failing to score in regulation in their last game, a 1-0 win over the Blues.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
It's not going to get any easier for Colorado tonight, playing on the back end of a back to back, versus Anaheim team that has limited opponents to two goals or fewer in four straight games.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Jonas Hiller has returned from injury to get back into the Ducks lineup, and he was solid in his last start, stopping 25 of 27 shots in a 3-2 win over Columbus. Hiller might struggle to hold on to his job as the starter though, as rookie Victor Fasth is 8-0 with a 1.78 GAA so far as the #2. It should be Fasth between the pipes tonight, and that's not good news for a Colorado team that has only scored once in their last two games (barring overtime and shootouts).
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Ducks have won five in a row, and nine of their last 10, and they should be in a good spot to earn a victory against the offensively challenged Avs tonight. Colorado is still plagued by injuries to key players, and their leading scorer from last season Ryan O'Reilly remains unsigned.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Avs have lost nine of their last 11 visits to Anaheim, and they have seen the total go under in four straight meetings overall. Colorado has trended toward low scoring games when playing on back to back nights, with the total going under at a rate of 7-2-1 in such situations.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
When looking at the Panthers’ contributions to the NBA over the years with well-known glass-sweepers like Charles Smith, Jerome Lane and DaJuan Blair, Pitt’s glorious tradition of great rebounding cannot be questioned. Along with teamwork and defense, it is also the hallmark of Jamie Dixon’s career as Panther head coach. So imagine his horror last time out when Notre Dame’s 40-25 advantage on the boards helped wipe out an early 16-point Pitt lead over the Irish and contribute to the Panthers’ second consecutive defeat. In fact, Pitt has been out-rebounded in each of its seven losses this season, surprising for a team that is ranked as the second-best team in the Big East in the rebounding margin category. Dixon needs to turn things around with the Big Dance quickly coming into view and he’ll need to do it on the road at Madison Square Garden, where the Red Storm hold the upper hand with a 7-2 SUATS advantage. On top of that, St. John’s will be looking for revenge from last year’s Big East tourney KO by the Panthers – and the Johnnies are especially prolific in such LTKO situations with a 4-1 SU and 4-0-1 ATS mark if their win percentage is over .575. Finally, Pitt finds itself in a rather dubious revenge sandwich coming off the confidence-sapping quadruple revenger versus the Irish, and a double revenger up next against South Florida. Johnnies outright in the Garden.  We recommend a 1-unit play on St. John's.

Pick: PhoenixFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Spurs are coming off a 107-101 OT loss at Golden State on Friday, and I believe will suffer another setback tonight. San Antonio looked sluggish down the stretch, and shot just under 39 percent from the floor, which included going 4 of 22 from 3-point land (interestingly, San Antonio is just 10-11 ATS this year vs. poor defensive teams that allow 99 plus points per contest, and just 3-4 ATS in its last seven when playing against a team with a losing record). Phoenix will be looking to make amends for a listless 113-88 loss to the Celtics on Friday. "This is one you just want to put behind you as fast as possible,'' Phoenix forward P.J. Tucker said afterwards. One player you'll want to track is Goran Dragic who is averaging 18.3 points and 12.7 assists over his last three games (Phoenix is 29-25 in its last 54 following a loss by 10 points or more). This is definitely a revenge game for the Suns after they lost 108-99 in San Antonio on January 26th. In fact, Phoenix has lost five straight in this series. I fully expect the Suns to give this complacent Spurs team everything it can handle, keeping it a lot closer than what Las Vegas is leading us to believe.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
When Duke was nearly ambushed at Chestnut Hill on Feb. 10, it was in a classic “sandwich” situation off a revenge battle vs. NC State and with bitter rival North Carolina on deck Not so in the rematch, as the Blue Devils seek to rehabilitate their case for a top regional seed in the fast-approaching Big Dance.  The smallish Eagles still appear a poor fundamental matchup against Blue Devil C Mason Plumlee (19 & 10 first meeting; 17.6 ppg this season), and they lack the defensive presence on the perimeter to slow the explosive Duke backcourt led by G Seth Curry.  BC has also consistently lost touch away from home this season as lack of reliable scoring options other than F Ryan Anderson has proven a hindrance for Steve Donahue's troops.

Purdue is 4-11 ATS against teams holding opponents to 42% or less shooting from the field. The Northwestern Wildcats may not be having a great season, but it is not from a lack of defense. They have held opponents to 61.9 points per game on the road and an average of 41.9% shooting overall this season.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Always play on a team that has failed to cover the spread in two or more consecutive games like Northwestern in a matchup involving two teams that are winning 40-49% of their games on the season. This system is 54-23 (70%) ATS over the last five seasons.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Northwestern beat Purdue by 5 points earlier this season. They are playing on three days of rest which is just the right number to stay sharp, but not be rundown. The Boilermakers have averaged 17 turnovers in their last two games compared to 10.5 from Northwestern. This should be a close game between two evenly matched teams and the value play is taking the points.

Tom Izzo will be telling his players they can't let Indiana beat them twice, but that's easier said than done after a heartbreaking loss to the top-ranked Hoosiers. Even if Michigan State doesn't suffer a letdown, it will have a hard time leaving Columbus with a win. The Buckeyes are 14-2 on their home floor and will be hungry to avenge a three-point loss in the season's first meeting. The Buckeyes enter with a ton of confidence after completing mopping the floor with Minnesota. It has been wise to back the Buckeyes at home when they're beaming with confidence as they are 9-2 ATS in home games after a blowout win of 20 points or more over the last 2 seasons. They are a reliable 76-54 ATS in all games as a home favorite or pickem under Thad Matta. It is also worth noting that Michigan State is a soft 15-29 ATS as a road underdog of six points or less or pickem under Izzo. They have lost these games by an average of 5.7 points. Bet the Buckeyes.

Pick: TempleFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Charlotte has a solid record and I am sure they are going to be all out to get revenge today as the 49ers host Temple. But matchup stats tell the story here. Charlotte cannot take care of the ball. This team is dead last in the A-10 in turnovers per possession. Meanwhile, the Owls are the most protective possession team in the entire league on percentage. If I'm going get likely extra possessions with Temple, I'm in. I also like the fact that Charlotte just cannot his threes at all, which could be a killer late if that's what's needed. The downer here is that it's revenge for the hosts from a very close loss in the prior meeting, and the Owls are traveling off a crucial win over Big Five rival La Salle. But the big key to me is in the numbers, and that's why I will be backing Temple as today's free opinion.

Miami is playing great. I acknowledge that. But this is an excellent spot for an improving and motivated Cavaliers squad to cover what I see is an inflated number.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Heat just finished a perfect 4-0 road trip last night at Philadelphia. They are returning home - with all of the Southern Miami distractions - without rest. This marks Miami's fourth game in five days. The Heat don't have a strong bench and could be missing Mike Miller again.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Cleveland is playing well. The Cavaliers have covered six of their last eight. They, too, played last night on the road rolling past Orlando, 118-94. It was the Cavaliers' most lopsided victory of the season. Cleveland coach Byron Scott was able to rest his starters the entire fourth quarter.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
It was the seventh time in the last eight chances the Cavaliers have covered versus an Eastern Conference team.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Cleveland still has a chip on its shoulders about LeBron James departing to Miami. This should ensure a full effort. The Cavaliers historically have played the Heat tough in Miami covering during six of their last eight visits. The Heat just nipped the Cavaliers by two during the first meeting this season.

I'm not ready to trust the Knicks, who are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games, laying this many points. The 76ers were kicked by Miami yesterday but are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss of more than 10 points. Plus, they are on a 52-30 ATS run as an underdog of 10 or more points and a 48-25 ATS run as a road underdog of 9.5 to 12 points. The road team is 12-5 ATS in the last 17 meetings, and the underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. Look for these trends to continue.

No Way the Knicks who are on a epic losing streak and playing terrrible defense should be laying this type of number to anyone. Too many points here and I like the Dog in this one to make a game of it. Mello has not been scoring lights out and as Mello goes, so goes the the Kinicks.

The Trojans beat the Bruins 75-71 in overtime in the teams' first meeting on Jan. 30 to end a four-game skid against UCLA. Revenge now on board for the Bruins. The only thing that has kept me from making this a regular bet is that- Travis Wear hurt his right foot in practice on Saturday . Despite of this Im betting the Bruins still have enough moxy and fire power to get the win here. Make this one a half unit bet!

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
UCLA comes in 19-7 overall and 9-4 in the Pac 12, putting the Bruins right in the mix for the Pac-12 title. It’s a far cry from last year’s 19-14 team which finished at 11-7. Three freshman have lead the rebirth in Westwood, the 6-6 Muhammad (18.5-8.2), swingman Adams (14.9-3.8) and the 6-9 Anderson (9.6-8.8). This trio has joined the 6-10 Wear twins, Travis (11.6-5.4) and David (6.9-04.8) plus veteran guard Drew (7.0-7.7 APG) and Powell (6.5). USC is also ‘light years’ ahead of what happened last season, when the Trojans finished 6-26, including 1-17 in the Pac 12. Kevin O’Neill was let go in mid-January and after losing three of their first four after the coaching change, the Trojans reeled off four straight wins before last Sunday's 76-68 loss at Cal. USC’s record of 12-14 (7-6 in the Pac 12) may not seem very gaudy but its sure beats what USC suffered through last year. Three transfers have really helped as the 6-6 Wise (12.0-5.8) from UC-Irvine, guard Terrell (10.9) from Wake Forest and 7-0 center Oraby (6.0-3.3) from Rice, have all been very helpful additions. Returning guards Wesley (10.3-4.5) and Fontan (9.8-5.1 APG) plus frontcourt players like the 7-0 Dedmon (6.7-6.8) and the 6-6 Fuller (4.1-3.7) round out the major contributors. USC shocked UCLA in Pauley Pavilion back on Jan 30, winning 75-71 in OT as 10-point dogs. However, the Bruins can move within a half-game of the Pac 12 lead with a win here (Arizona and Oregon are both 11-4) and UCLA doesn’t miss that chance. Payback works!

NEW YORK -10 over Philadelphia
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Philadelphia is sinking fast. They’ve dropped to 22-31 on the season after losing its past four and five of its last six games. The 76ers only win over that span came against the last place Bobcats. This is a team playing with little emotion right now and after getting beat at home by the Heat last night by 24 points, it’s doubtful that they’ll be looking forward to this one.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
With four straight losses of their own, the Knicks do not look very appealing spotting double digits to this Atlantic Division rival. However, this line strongly suggests the Knicks are going to be ready to put forth their best effort in some time. The addition of Kenyon Martin, acquired at the trade deadline, is sure to give New York a boost as K-Mart makes his Knicks debut here. Unlike the 76ers, New York is battling hard to snap out of this current funk. On January 26th of this year, the Knicks went into Philadelphia and lost by 17 points. While we’re not big supporters of the revenge angle, this one has a different feel to it as the Knicks are much more motivated and are primed to take out all of their frustrations on this apathetic visitor.

Temple -2 over CHARLOTTEFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
These two A-10 combatants have very similar records. Charlotte comes in with a 6-5 conference mark and an 18-7 overall record while the Owls are 7-5 in the conference and 18-8 overall. However, that’s where the similarities end. The Owls are once again one of the elite teams in the A-10. They’re rock solid on both ends of the court. On the defensive end it is hard to get in the lane versus the Owls. Temple has size and length to both pressure the ball and contest shots. Offensively, few guards can control a game like Kahlif Wyatt. The Owls have won five of their past seven games with the two losses being by a single point each time. Temple currently is sitting on the bubble, making these final few games crucial to an at-large entry to the tourney. Wins over Syracuse and Saint Louis and strength of schedule that ranks 46th in the country confirms just how tough this visitor is. 
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The 49ers strength of schedule ranks 110th in the nation. Charlotte’s best win this season came against Butler 11 days ago but the Bulldogs have not been sharp since mid-January. Charlotte has now lost four of its past six and that coincided with the suspension of junior guard DeMario Mayfield, who was suspended on January 30 and was dismissed from the club two days ago for violating school rules for the third time in two years. Mayfield was averaging a team-high 12 points per game and had 14 double figure scoring games this season.  The Owls and 49ers near identical records play a big part in establishing this price but the product on the court significantly favors the visitor in all areas.

Phoenix +100 over CALGARYFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
OT included. This one is rather simple. The Flames are a hard-working bunch that has some nice wins under their belt this season but they offer much more value taking back a price as opposed to spotting one. Calgary has just 3 regulation wins in 10 tries at home this season and that’s not the résumé of a team you want to be playing when favored.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Coyotes blew a 2-0 lead in Edmonton yesterday but it was the first time this season they took a lead into the third and didn’t hold onto it. However, they had been off for four full days prior to yesterday’s matinée and few teams respond well after lengthy lay-offs when getting used to playing every day or every other day. Phoenix has picked up points in five of its past six games and its offense is creating more scoring chances than we’ve ever seen from this bunch. The ‘Yotes defense remains as solid as ever. Prior to yesterday’s OT loss, Phoenix scored nine goals in its previous two games. They’ll face a backup goaltender here in either Joey MacDonald or Danny Taylor and that too, adds to the appeal of this guest.

La Salle -7FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
LaSalle La Salle failed on Thursday in their bubble matchup at Temple dropping them to 8-4 SU in the League. That makes this game of major importance for a quality road team who has already recorded 7 victories on the highway this season. The addition of Garland (VA Tech) solidifies the most perimeter power in the A10 in the persons of Galloway and Duren. No question that Rhody will never give up under 1st year mentor Dan Hurley who has molded only 5 returning players and 9 total scholarship players into an 8-17 record, but only 3 conference wins. That includes just a single League win on this court where the Rams stand 4-8 SU vs. lined opponents this season. Let's take the better team with the better Guards and the greater motivation against a weak home court.

UCLA -1.5 over USC: The road team is 11-4 ATS the last 15 in this series and USC is 8-22-1 ATS their last 31 at home. Now that we got that out of the way. UCLA is in revenge mode for this one for a home OT loss earlier in the year to the men of troy. USC has surprised in the Pac-12 this year, but they are still not up to the level of a UCLA team that seem to really be gelling at just the right time. UCLA has had plenty of time to think about revenge as they have had 8 day to think about it and behind another strong performance from their super freshmen they should get a nice win here.

DUKE -16.5 over Boston College: The Eagles have surprised at times this year and their last meeting vs Duke was one of those times as they took the Blue Devils down to the wire at home, before losing by 1 point. Even though Duke won that game I still see this as payback. The Blue Devils have seen all the upsets this year and with the first game being as close as it was you can bet that they will be fully focused here and not take this team lightly at all. This game will resemble the blowout loss that the Eagles suffered at as Duke wins this one by 20+.

Florida State -1.5 over VIRGINIA TECH: Neither team is playing all that well right now, but the Seminoles are still the better team here as they are 6-7 in the ACC, compared to Virginia Tech's 2-11 mark. The Hokies have lost 9 in a row, including their last 5 at home. In those last 5 home losses they have been outscored by 14.4 ppg. Florida State is no juggernaut and they have had problems scoring on the road (57.4 ppg), bu fear not because the Hokies have allowed 71.8 ppg in their last 5 at home and 75.6 ppg in their last 5 overall. FSU get's back on track with a solid win in Hokie land as their offense wakes up and runs away with this one down the stretch.
