Pittsburgh vs. MontrealFREE 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 Canadiens are off to a great start to the season. Much of their success can be attributed to strong defensive play and excellent goaltending.

For the season, they're allowing 2.1 goals per game, permitting an average of just 25.7 shots. (They rank in the top four in the league in both categories.) Those numbers dip to 2.0 and 24.6 respectively, when the Habs play in front of their home fans.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Recently, the Canadiens have been particularly stingy. Over their last eight games, they've allowed only 10 total goals. That's an average of only 1.25 per game. One of those games (4-3 loss vs. Islanders on 2/21) saw them allow 40% of those goals too. The Habs allowed two or less in all seven of the others, recording three shutouts during that stretch. Even with a 5-2 win over Toronto last time out, the "under" remains a lucrative 6-2 their last eight.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Note that the "under" is 30-14-4 during the past few seasons, after the Canadiens scored four or more goals in their previous game.

In most cases, I don't tend to pay too much attention to how teams fare on a particular day of the week. Saturday nights are an extra big deal in Montreal though and have a bit of a unique flavor to them. That said, I feel its worth mentioning that the "under" is 33-13-4 the last 50 times that the Canadiens played on a Saturday.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
There's no denying that the Penguins are a potent offensive team. However, after back-to-back losses, each where they gave up four or more goals, I expect the Pens to emphasize improved defensive play here.

Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma commented that his team hung goalie Marc-Andre Fleury "out to dry" last game. Needless to say, he's hoping for a better defensive effort here. (Fleury has a 3-0-1 record with a solid 2.38 GAA in his last four starts against the Canadiens.)
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Note that Malkin, one of the top offensive players in the world, remains out. Also, note that the "under" is 4-1 on the season, after Pittsburgh allowed four or more goals in its previous game.

The majority of recent Montreal games have had O/U lines of five. However, because of tonight's opponent, we're getting an extra half goal to work with, although we do have to lay some extra juice to get it. Given how many games finish with exactly five goals, as the most recent meeting (3-2 Montreal win on 2/7/12) between these teams did, that's certainly significant.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The "under" is already 5-2 this season when the Canadiens played a home game with an O/U line of 5.5. I feel its worth a look again here.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
If you have been following my plays the past few weeks, you would already know that since the Raptors acquired Rudy Gay from Memphis, I have been riding TO pretty hard. They won six of their first eight games with Gay in the lineup, and I cashed in on most of those victories. Lately I took a few tough losses with the Raps, and I stayed away from last night's game versus the Pacers.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Much like the game versus the Grizzlies a week earlier, the Pacers totally shut down the Raptors, and Toronto wasn't able to get anything going offensively. Making matters worse, Rudy Gay struggled through a back injury, eventually bowing out in the third quarter and lying on the sidelines receiving treatment. If Gay is able to play Saturday, he certainly won't be at 100%.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Bucks are clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot, and they are playing like a team that wants to go to the playoffs. Milwaukee has won back to back road games against two tough teams, Dallas and Houston. They have had a couple of rest days since winning on a buzzer beater in Houston, and they can put the Raptors playoff hopes to bed on Saturday night.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Raptors come limping in playing their second game in as many nights, and their third game in four nights. With their star player ailing, they might not have a lot of fight left in them.

Pick: St. Mary'sFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
After easily disposing of Pepperdine on Wednesday, St. Mary's nailed down the latest in a long line of 25-win seasons and set the stage for a potential 8th appearance in the NCAA Tournament. While the usual accolades continue to accrue for SMC, we'd like to nominate tonight's visitors for this year's Ugly Duckling (or would it be Ugly Foal?) Awards, last season Santa Clara stumbled to an awful 8-22 record but after returning all five starters for 2012-13, the Broncos have kicked up their heels en route to a 20-win campaign. Coach Kerry Keating's crew bid their seniors farewell in Thursday's home finale against LMU, then hit the road for a regular season-ending grudge match against the Gaels. Santa Clara was punished by 21 points as a 2.5-point home dog back on Feb. 7 and Keating just so happens to own a 6-0-1 ATS mark with same-season loss revenge of 20 or more points. Series history also backs the Broncos as they've compiled an impressive 10-3 ATS record playing at McKeon Pavilion - plus the visitor has gone 17-7 ATS in all Santa Clara games this season at press time. The Gaels are a not-so-fortunate 1-4 ATS as double-digit chalk in Last Home Games under Randy Bennett but we think the biggest obstacle to SMC's focus here is this: the hosts can neither improve nor decline in the WCC standings, having already clinched the No. 2 seed in the upcoming conference tourney. St. Mary's has dropped just a single game in its last 13 outings (against nemesis Gonzaga) but we're not asking Santa Clara to spring the outright upset here. To paraphrase the late Al Davis of Oakland Raiders' fame, “Just cover, baby.”  We recommend a 1-unit play on Santa Clara.

LBSU enjoys significant matchup advantages, and will look to once again exploit them tonight, as a victory will clinch it the outright Big West regular season crown.

Will Rogers hasn't wasted any time making a name for himself on the college hardwood! He's really lighting it up with his college basketball picks, and with the Big Dance just around the corner, it couldn't be happening at a better time. He's now 10-2 with 10* NCAAB since his debut, so you don't want to make a move this Saturday without checking with "The Coach".

Check out his take on Saturday's matchup between ND vs MARQ:
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
After a blowout loss on the road to Providence, there were rumbles that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish didn't deserve to be ranked in the top 25. In their next game, the Irish went into Pittsburgh getting double-digits, and went on to win that game outright, dominating with their defense, holding the Panthers to just 42 points in 51-42 victory. They followed that up with another impressive win at home over Cincinnati. The Irish are on the road Saturday, taking on #22 Marquette, as a significant underdog once again.
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: Defense - The Irish have really shut down opponents in their last two games, allowing Pittsburgh to score just 42 points on 34.8 percent shooting, and holding Cincinnati to 41 on 31.5 percent from the field. The Golden Eagles have allowed an average of 70 points in their last two home games, and Syracuse shot 47.5 percent from the field in a 74-71 loss at Milwaukee last Saturday.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
2: Recent History - The Irish have won three of four, covering the points in all three of their victories versus Marquette since 2010.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
3: X-Factor - The Irish should dominate the boards in the this game, as they have a significant edge when it comes to rebounding, and that could be a deciding factor as we look for Notre Dame to hang in there with the Golden Eagles.

Pick: NevadaFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
UNLV is coming off a rare road win but despite a rough season on the highway, the Rebels are still overvalued. With nothing to lose, Nevada will be playing loose and looking for the upset over its bitter rival. UNLV has won three straight games including a win at Wyoming last Saturday which was its first road victory since defeating San Diego St. back on January 16th. The Rebels lost four straight games on the road in-between those games and the highway has been an issue all season as they are 5-6 compared to going 16-1 at home. The shoddy road play has taken its toll on UNLV which came into the season with high expectations, and that was exemplified after starting the season 11-1 through 12 games. Those expectations also caused UNLV to be overvalued as they are 3-8 ATS in those 11 game on the road. Nevada has had the same issues as its state rival as it is 10-5 at home compared to 2-10 on the road. Obviously the home floor is not as strong but it has been solid lately. After losing against San Diego St. here on January 23rd by 21 points, the Wolf Pack have gone 2-2 at the Lawlor Events Center with the losses coming against Colorado St. by just four points and Fresno St. by five points in overtime. This is a big rivalry game even though Nevada has not held up its end of the bargain in recent years, losing seven straight meetings including a defeat by 12 points earlier this season in Las Vegas. The Wolf Pack could have UNLV right where they want them here though as the Rebels are 4-17 ATS in their last 21 road games against teams with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. Meanwhile, the Wolf Pack are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a loss of more than 20 points.

It took Kevin Stallings a while, but Vandy finally looks like a representative outfit, with SU wins in four of its last six after being strafed by graduation and early defections from LY’s team, which featured three NBA draft picks. The Dores’ frosh weapons G Kevin Bright (game-winning shot Wednesday vs. Georgia) and F Sheldon Jeter (from Joe Namath’s Beaver Falls, PA; 13 ppg last two and 50% from tripleville last four games) are now making consistent contributions and removing a bit of the scoring load from soph G Kedren Johnson (14 ppg).  Meanwhile, it’s gone pear-shaped at Auburn, with SU losses in its last 6, and 12 of 13, while finding the 60-point barrier a hard one to break in recent weeks (the Tigers haven’t scored more than 56 in their last four games).  Auburn not able to find much scoring help form overworked sr. G Frankie Sullivan (14.6 ppg), as some SEC observers begin to wonder if Tony Barbee’s regime is ever going to gain any traction on the Plains.  Look for something similar to Vandy’s earlier 12-point win at Memorial Gym.

You should always play against home underdogs of 2.5 to 9.5 points like UC Riverside when they are revenging a loss where they scored less than 60 points and they are coming off a home loss. This system is 88-50 (63.8%) over the last five seasons. This game also falls into a system to play on road teams as a favorite or pick when they are forcing less than 14 turnovers per game and playing in March. This system is 60-28 (68.2%) over the last five seasons.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
UC Riverside is a bad team. They average just 63.4 points per game on their home court and shoot an abysmal 59.5% from the free throw line. Pacific may not be a great team but they are playing towards a conference championship sitting in second place in the Big West. There is no way they will overlook any of their opponents in these last three games of the regular season and they certainly will not take their foot off the gas against this UC Riverside team.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The New Mexico Lobos can clinch at least a share of the Mountain West title with a home win Saturday over the Wyoming Cowboys. If that's not enough motivation then consider that this will be Senior Day for the Lobos as well as it is their final home game of the season. They'll finish up the year with road trips to Nevada and Air Force.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
These players certainly want to send their seniors out with a victory in their final home game. I like their chances of doing so in blowout fashion inside "The Pit", which is one of the most underrated venues in all of college basketball. The Lobos are 14-1 at home this year where they are outscoring opponents by 11.8 points/game.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Cowboys have little to play for the rest of the way as they have completely fallen flat on their faces over the past month or so. They have lost three straight and eight of their last 11 games overall while going a woeful 1-9 ATS in all lined games during this stretch. Four of their losses over this span have come by 12 points or more. That includes at UNLV (50-62), at Colorado State (46-65), at San Diego State (51-79) and vs. UNLV (42-65).
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Wyoming is 0-7 ATS in road games revenging a loss where team scored less than 60 points over the last 3 seasons. New Mexico is 35-13 ATS as a favorite over the last 2 seasons. The Lobos 21-5-1 ATS in their last 27 vs. MWC opponents, including 6-0 ATS in home games against conference opponents this season. The Cowboys are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Wyoming is 0-6 ATS in its last 6 road games. The Lobos are 21-8-2 ATS in their last 31 home games. Bet New Mexico Saturday.

Vandy has won 4 of their L6 SU, 5-2 ATS their L7 while Auburn has dropped 6 in a row and 12 of their L13 SU, failing to cover 5 straight. The Commodores Johnson, Odom, Fuller, Bright, Parker, and Jeter are just too much for the understaffed and outclassed Tigers here, who depend way too much on Guard, Frankie Sullivan. Vanderbilt has won 7 straight over Auburn. They are 3rd in the SEC in points allowed at 59.8 PPG and have given up just 62 PPG in 8 of their L9 contests. This game is going to be even uglier than the 73-61 whooping Vandy put on Auburn back in January. I lean towards Vanderbilt here.

Arizona is a good team but at the same time the most over rated basketball program in the nation, and have been very hard on bettors this season failing to cover 12 of their L/17 overall. Their hosts UCLA pounded the Wildcats in wire to wire fashion in their first meeting this season, in the desert. Im betting Arizona does not get their revenge vs a Bruins side that matches up well against them. Expect Bill Howlands young men to come out of this with another victory at short odds. Key Trend:Wildcats are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.

Baylor -2½

You know why I on the home team here. I love when 'ranked' teams get points. I think the Bears have the size advantage and that will help out. But also, who has Kansas State beaten on the road? I'll tell you. Nobody good. Nice revenge angle here also with the BAYLOR BEARS

Missouri returns to the friendly confines of Mizzou Arena where they are unbeaten this season. The Tigers and fresh off a thursday night thrashing of South Carolina where they blew the Game Cocks of Frank Martin straight off their own home floor. Now they get another shot at LSU, a team the Tiger players feel convinced they should have handled in their earlier meeting down in Baton Rouge. One thing not many know is that game got a lot more chippy towards the end than what is the expected norm. Mizzou has been itching for this rematch with LSU and now they have it. Clearly the odds makers expect a convincing Mizzou win here and they are spot on right. I fully expect Missouri to clear this number guys and blow LSU out. One interesting thing to keep an eye on is just how much Mizzou point guard Phil Pressey put the ball up, he went from 26 attempts the previous game to absolutely zero shot attempts in the win at Sout Carolina. There has been an ongoing thing between Pressy and coach Frank Haith about just how much he is to shoot the ball. Pressey has all the tools to frankly be the best point guard in the nation but is also one of the more headstrong players in recent history at Missouri. Anyway, the Tigers can be a match up nightmare for many teams come post season time. They can dominate on the glass, stroke the long balls and now they are beginning to defend much, much better. It's a line up littered with guys who are used to being the closers and shooting the rock, Pressy's ability (and willingness) to distribute and share the action is huge for the Tigers success. Mizzou Arena will be full and rocking. LSU will find itself in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Wake Forest + over MarylandFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Wake Forest may only be 12-15 on the season and 5-10 in ACC play but the Demon Deacons have been a formidable home team. In the last nine home games Wake Forest is 7-2 S/U with the losses coming by just one against Georgia Tech and by only five against Duke. Home wins include beating Xavier, Virginia, NC State, Florida State, and Miami, FL. Maryland is likely on the wrong side of the NCAA Tournament bubble after recent losses to Boston College and Georgia Tech. Maryland is only 3-7 S/U this season in road and neutral site games and the Terrapins have covered in just one ACC road game all season long. Going back the last two years Maryland is just 7-18-1 ATS in the last 26 road games while Wake Forest is 12-3-1 ATS in the last 16 home games. This will be a third road game in the last four games for Maryland and the remaining games with North Carolina and Virginia next on the schedule may overshadow this game. Coming off a disappointing loss earlier this week against Florida State, a game that fell in a challenging letdown spot after the win over Miami, Wake Forest should be focused for a strong performance in the second to last home game of the season. Wake Forest has shot nearly 47 percent in home games this season while Maryland has barely shot 41 percent in road games this season. The Terrapins are one of the worst free throw shooting teams in the conference and this looks like a challenging situation for a Maryland team that has faded out of the NCAA postseason picture.

VCU (-6.5) over Butler

The A-10's new boys clash here on the Rams' home floor, and I like the more athletic ex-CAA program. I have never really bought into Butler this season, even if the Bulldogs have turned in some quality victories under Brad Stevens. I think the three-point shooting and press defense at home will carry VCU to a well-deserved win. This is a matchup of teams in the Top 25 right now, and I think that the energy of the home crowd is really going to fuel the press of the Rams. This one should go the way of the home team, and I see a statement win for VCU.

Memphis (-6.5) over Central Florida

Memphis is 24-4 on the season this year. They are one of the best mid-major teams in the country, and I think they are going to win this game going away. Memphis beat Central Florida by 22 points at home back on Feb. 13. Just because UCF is home, I don't think the result is going to be all that much different. Memphis is coming off a tough loss at Xavier. But they could've won that game, and that has probably made them angry. Central Florida does not have the size or the depth to hold up against this very good Tigers team. UCF has lost three of its last four conference games, and I don't think they can get the job done here. Lay the points and watch Memphis run away with this one.
