FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Illinois-Chicago Flames are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games against a team with a winning road record while the Wright State Raiders are 1-6 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record. The Flames are also 11-3 ATS against teams holding their opponents to 42% or less from the field this season. The Flames already beat Wright State back on January 26th with a 55-49 final score. That game was played on the Raiders home court so it seems unlikely that Wright State will be able to reverse their fortunes playing round two of this matchup on the road. The Raiders offense has struggled in road games averaging 60.1 points per game with 31 total rebounds and only 7 of those coming on the offensive glass. Illinois-Chicago plays well at home and they have already proven they know how to beat Wright State. Getting a free point here is a gift from the oddsmakers.

Wyoming's season has fallen apart since their leading scorer was injured in a bar brawl. The free fall will continue as I think they will have a hard time scoring here. Wyoming has gone under in 12 of its last 15 overall and 11 of its last 14 vs MWC opponents.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Pacers are on quite the roll. They have won their last 4 games by a combined margin of 108 points. The largest such margin since 2001. Indiana has Star forward Danny Granger back and have controlled this series here winning and covering 12 of the last 16, including 5 straight. The Pacers are also a solid 9-1 straight up and to the spread off a division game and have covered 8 of 10 this month. Golden St has failed to cover 4 of 5 on Tuesday and are just 1-5 straight up and ads in the 2nd half vs winning teams. Look for the pacers to get the win and cover here tonight.

These teams last played on February 6th, and the Tigers would come away with a convincing 49-37 victory. Eight of the Crimson Tide's 14 SEC games have been decided by four points or less. Expect another battle here, and consider a second look at the visitors in this one!

The Iron Bowl resumes in Tuscaloosa Tuesday night where Alabama hosts Auburn with revenge on the minds of the Tide from a 12-point loss suffered earlier this year at the Auburn Arena.  Setting the table is the fact that Bama arrives off a SUATS loss at LSU on Saturday.  That's because the Tide is 6-0 SUATS as a host in this series when playing off a SUATS loss. With that, look for the Crimson to even the slate here tonight.  We recommend a 1-unit play on Alabama.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The San Jose Sharks have had a tough schedule in the month of February, and they have lost nine of 10 so far this month. They might be able to get back on tack on Tuesday, coming off two days of rest, hosting a Colorado team playing in a 3-in-4 situation.
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: Fatigue - The Avs play their final game of a three game West Coast swing, already suffering back to back losses to the Kings and the Ducks. This will be their third game in four nights, and they may be a little weary on the road.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
2: Injuries - The Avs did get Gabriel Landeskog back after missing time due to a concussion, but he still isn't 100 percent, and hasn't made much of an impact since his return. Their blueline is still without Erik Johnson and Ryan Wilson. Ryan O'Reilly is unsigned, as the Avs leading scorer from last season has yet to lace up the skates this year.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
3: Situational/Motivational - The Sharks are at home, well rested, and they have intentions of breaking out of a slump and getting back into a playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Avs are looking forward to finishing off this road trip, and returning home to Denver. While they are in San Jose to play the Sharks, their minds might already be back home in Colorado.

Pick: DallasFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Mavs lost their last game at home to L.A., but they didn't miss by much. Kobe Bryant's 38 points were just too much for Dallas to overcome, and they went on to lose a close one by a score of 103-99. Dirk Nowitzki was also on top of his game, scoring a season-high 30 points.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
While the loss to the Lakers was disappointing, the Mavs have to be encouraged by the play of their star player. If Dirk can play with that level of intensity for the remainder of the season, the Mavs are going to be tough to beat, especially in "Big D".
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Dallas will host the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, and the Bucks have really struggled, with just one win in their last eight games. It isn't going to get any easier in Dallas tonight, taking on a Mavs team that is looking to bounce back from a loss. Dallas has been a good bet in such situations, with a record of 8-0 ATS in it's last eight games coming off a loss. The Mavs have also feasted on the leagues poorer teams, with a record of 8-1 ATS in their last nine against teams with a losing record.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Nowitzki is averaging 21.6 points on 54.2% shooting in his last five games, and he's also 10-of-14 from beyond the arc during that span. Dallas has won all but one of the last nine meetings with the Bucks in Dallas, and that trend should continue on Tuesday.

Alabama has no room for error, or risk slippage from its  precarious perch on the edge of the Big Dance bubble. And, with a heavy dose of revenge vs. its most-hated rival in mind after a woeful performance in its ugly 49-37 loss at Auburn Arena Feb. 6, must anticipate a focused effort from host Alabama.  But can we lay points with the Tide, just 1-9 as chalk in Tuscaloosa?  Considering the various dynamics involved, we might risk it, especially since Bama is eager to rinse the bad taste from the previous meeting vs. the Tigers, when the Tide “O” went on the blink for nine shutout minutes in the second half, and Anthony Grant’s bunch hit just 28.6% from the floor in root canal special.  Auburn’s efforts have gotten steadily worse in five losses in a row (especially Saturday’s 88-55 blowout loss at Ole Miss) since that first meeting.  Tide star G Trevor Releford at least enters in top form after his 36-point effort went for naught in Saturday’s bitter triple-OT loss at LSU.

Yes, I realize Minnesota opening with 15 wins in its first 16 games is a distant memory. The Gophers have lost eight of their past 11. Their bad stretch began with an 88-81 road loss to Indiana on Jan. 26. The Gophers nearly came back from a 23-point deficit in that matchup.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Gophers have gotten blown out in their last two games, losing on the road to Ohio State and Iowa. The Gophers have turned the ball over a combined 41 times in those two games while shooting just 32.6 percent from the field.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
But Minnesota is much better at home, has played a difficult schedule (17th in the Ratings Percentage Index rankings) and this is a circle-the-wagons, let-everything-hang game. The Gophers know they need a good showing to regain their confidence and get back off the mat not to mention keep them firmly on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament. A blowout home loss would look bad.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Gophers have beaten Michigan State and Wisconsin at Williams Arena during the past three weeks. The Spartans are ranked ninth and Wisconsin is 17th, respectively, in the latest The Associated Press Top 25 poll.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Indiana is No. 1. The Hoosiers are in a bit of if not a letdown spot at least a situation where their motivation doesn't figure to be as high as Minnesota's. The Hoosiers won a hard-fought 72-68 road battle at Michigan State in their last game to give them a two-game lead in the loss column over the Spartans for the Big Ten Conference crown.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
On the injury front, senior forward Rodney Williams, the Gophers' second-leading rebounder and third-leading scorer, has recovered from his shoulder soreness and will start. Indiana guard Victor Oladipo, who is second in scoring for the Hoosiers, isn't 100 percent due to a sprained ankle.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
This is the Big Ten. Desperate home teams protect their turf. The Gophers are in that spot. They've beaten Top 20 teams at home and they can hang in here against the best.

Dallas a hot mess and could not beat the Laers BUT Milwaukee is a team they match up well against and the Bucks in a free fall losing 3 in a row and 8 out of their last 10 games. Dirk looking back to top form and Dallas is a GREAt team off a loss, they have cashed 8 in row ATS after a SU loss. Dallas is only 3-7 ATS in this series and the Bucks have covered 15 out of 20 in this series, I see that trend reversing tonight.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Detroit had a chance to put itself into the at-large mix at Wichita State on Saturday. Instead the Titans squandered the opportunity and their only path to the Dance now will be in the Horizon tourney. I can see this being a major letdown spot for a team that has trouble playing 40 minutes on a regular basis. Loyola is no bargain, but the Ramblers should be able to compete here against a host that even on Senior Night figures to have trouble being focused. Big points available, and I'll take them with Loyola.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
LA is a vastly improved defensive team from a year ago, 4th in the NBA in points allowed and ranked 5th in the NBA in field goal shooting defense allowing .438% shooting. The under is 8-3 in the Clippers last 11 games vs. a team with a winning percentage below .400. It won't be hard to shut down the Bobcats, a dismal offensive team a long way from home, 24th in the league in scoring and one that shoots 42% as a team -- dead last in the NBA. They are on a 10-3 run under the total and the under is 38-15-2 in the Bobcats last 55 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. Play the Bobcats/Clippers under the total.

The Orlando Magic have discovered life without the big guy in the middle isn't very pleasant. The Magic are on a woeful 1-17 run in their last 18 games, and just 3-15 ATS. The Philadelphia 76ers are far from a playoffs-caliber team this season, and without Andre Iguodala they have found out that he was an important cog to their success. The Sixers are also no bargain of late either as they are on a five-game skid. The offense has managed no more than 93 points in any of the five games, and regardless of the opponent the number here is simply an overlay. The Magic have been huge when following a 10+ point loss at 43-21-1 ATS in their last 65. Take the points, and play on Orlando.

Auburn +11½ -109 over ALABAMAFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Auburn is 9-18 overall while the Crimson Tide are 18-9 and that discrepancy in each clubs’ W/L record has this one grossly overpriced. Another factor influencing this line is that Alabama figures to be sky high here in an attempt to get on the NCAA bubble. However, we can’t get on board with this pedestrian Alabama team that has offensive problems, that is coming off a triple OT loss to LSU and that is just 2-9 ATS on its home court.

Auburn is 5-3 ATS on the road. The Tigers certainly matched up well enough with ‘Bama just 20 games ago in an ugly 49-37 victory at home. If these two teams play another low-scoring game, and the total of 118 suggests just that, it makes this big of a spread even tougher to cover. Auburn would love nothing more than to send this Crimson Tide group to the NIT Tournament as oppose to the main event. The change of venues is not significant enough to expect Alabama to win by 12 or more after losing by eight to this club.

TENNESSEE +8½ -106 over FloridaFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
It may seem like a tough call to fade this Florida team but the Gators actually haven't been meeting point-spread expectations all month, as they're 2-5 ATS in February and it's pretty clear that the oddsmakers have not caught up to them yet. We’re always on the lookout for ranked teams favored on the road against unranked opponents and this is another one of those games in which the ranked team is overvalued. With a two game lead in the conference and just four games left, the Gators are likely to lack intensity here, as they pretty much have the SEC locked up with home games against Alabama and Vandy on deck.

Tennessee has won and covered its last five games and has the look of a live underdog again here. The Volunteers are 2-0 as home underdogs this year, beating Wichita State 69-60 back in December and repeating the feat on Feb. 16 by romping over Kentucky 88-58. Florida is still the superior team but considering that the Gators are expected to be without Will Yeguete and Michael Frazier II and will have to rely on an inexperienced bench in a game that doesn’t mean a whole lot to them, expect Tennessee to stay well within this range with a chance to pull the upset..

Dallas -109 over COLUMBUSFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM

OT included. Despite an OT loss in Nashville last night and blowing a two goal lead twice, the Dallas Stars remain high on our list. Let’s not ignore that Dallas still scored four goals in Nashville and have run its streak of three goals or more to 10 consecutive games. This team is so loaded offensively that Michael Ryder is third on the RW depth chart. Ryder has 14 points in 19 games after scoring 35 goals a season ago. Frankly, it’s hard to envision the Stars getting outscored here by the offensively challenged Jackets.

Columbus returns home from a grueling six game road trip in 10 nights. Columbus won once in Detroit on said trip with the power-play connecting one time in 22 opportunities. The Jackets also lost Brandon Dubinsky in the game against the Red Wings and subsequently lost their final two games of the trip while scoring just one time. The future looks bright for the Jackets because of a slew of high draft picks in the upcoming, player rich, junior draft. However, this season is proving to be a serious struggle and in a difficult scheduling spot, this isn’t likely going to be one of those games that Columbus picks up an infrequent win. Dallas is hungry and vastly superior and this price allows us to utilize that.

Winnipeg +145 over N.Y. RANGERSFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM

OT included. The Rangers have been this year’s biggest disappointment. They were supposed to be a lock to get into the playoffs and contend for the Cup. Instead, they’ll be trying to avoid their longest losing streak in two years and it’s no mystery as to why. The Rangers lack grit. They don’t have those key role players like Brandon Prust, Sean Avery, John Mitchell and Brandon Dubinsky to get dirty in the corners and create opportunities in front of the net like last season. The Blue Shirts have become a soft team that gets pushed on most nights. New York’s production is also tailing off with just five goals scored in its past four games and while the Rangers will get some healthy bodies back tonight, Rick Nash is not one of them and now Ryan McDonagh, the Rangers best shut down defender, joins Nash on the rack.

The Jets’ Achilles Heel last year was their inability to win on the road. It cost them a playoff spot but they appear to have learned from that experience and are now playing significantly better on the road. Winnipeg concludes its five-game trip here with a chance to win its fourth game of the trip after defeating Buffalo, Carolina and New Jersey. The Jets play hard every night and even when they lose, it’s by the narrowest of margins. Five of Winnipeg’s last seven losses have been by one goal and the other two were by a pair of goals. This is a feisty Winnipeg team that was swept by the Rangers in four games last season. A lot has changed since and the Jets should prove that here.

Colorado +150 over SAN JOSEFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
OT included. Since opening the season with seven straight wins, the Sharks have been the NHL’s worst team. However, this price doesn’t come close to reflecting that. San Jose has one win in its past 10 games. They’ve scored two goals or less in seven straight and one goal or less in five of those. The Sharkies return home from a six game trip here and that’s rarely the right time to be playing a favorite. San Jose began its trip in Columbus on Feb. 11 and lost 6-2 to the Jackets. Instead of responding to that embarrassment, things got worse. This is more than a slump as the team appears lifeless over this 10 game timeframe and it’s difficult to predict if they’ll snap out of it.

The Avalanche are coming off back-to-back losses in Los Angeles and Anaheim, the latter in OT this past Sunday. Those are two of the hottest opponents in the league. Prior to that, the Avs won two in a row, defeating Nashville and St. Louis while winning three of four. Colorado has scored 19 goals in its past six games and they continue to offer up decent value. In 17 games played by both clubs, San Jose has one more win than the Avalanche. The Sharkies may shake these doldrums but their issues could also be deep rooted. Taking back a tag like this makes it worthwhile to find out.

Dallas Mavericks -5.5FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Mavericks are coming off a heartbreaking 99-103 loss at home to the Lakers on Sunday, which only adds value to them tonight against a struggling Milwaukee squad. Dallas simply can't afford to lose this game at home if they want to seriously have a shot at making the playoffs. The Bucks are just 1-7 in their last 8 games and have lost four straight on the road. Milwaukee hasn't had a whole lot of success against the Western Conference, going just 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games. The Bucks are an even worst 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games vs the Southwest division. Dallas continues to be a great to back as they are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games, 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games following a loss and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games vs a team with a losing record.

Chicago Bulls -6.5FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Cavs don't match up well with Chicago, and the result has been one blowout loss after another in the series. The Bulls have won 10 straight in the series with each of the last eight wins coming by double digits. Chicago has won this season's three meetings by 29, 10 and 26 points. Cleveland also catches the Bulls at a bad time. They were blown out by 30 at Oklahoma City Sunday and will be looking to take their frustrations out on the Cavs as a result. Consider that plays against teams that are out for revenge for at least two straight double-digit losses to an opponent, provided that opponent checks in off a road loss of 10 points or more, are 55-24 ATS the last five seasons. In addition, the Cavs are on a 25-48 ATS slide when out for revenge for a loss of 10 points or more to an opponent. The Cavaliers are 0-7 ATS in the last 7 meetings. Lay the points.
