This is a first round matchup in the West Coast Conference Tournament taking place at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. It has obviously been a disappointing season for both teams but more so for the Lions. They were picked as high as fourth in the preseason WCC rankings but have come no where close to that although their season has been better than their 1-15 record indicates. After starting 0-2 with expected losses at BYU and St. Mary's, Loyola-Marymount jumpstarted the season with a win over Santa Clara in January but has not tasted victory since. The Lions have lost 14 straight games and some of those have been excruciating with exactly half of those coming by four points or fewer so while the season has been tough to take, it feasibly could be better. Additionally, nine of 10 single-digit losses were a single possession game with less than two minutes to play. One of those close losses came against Portland, a team that swept the Lions, but beating a team three times in the same season is difficult. The Pilots finished 4-12 in the WCC with the other two wins coming against San Francisco and San Diego by two and three points respectively and unlike the Lions, a lot of their losses were not close as nine of the 12 defeats came by at least 11 points. Portland is coming off a 29-point loss at Gonzaga to end the regular season and it is 1-4 ATS in its last five games following a loss of more than 20 points. Meanwhile the Lions are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a loss. This sets up very similar to two years ago when Loyola-Marymount came into the WCC Tournament as the lower seed against the Pilots and had lost both regular season meetings but went on to win the third meeting of the season. Expect a similar outcome this year.

Boston is playing some very good basketball and has won three straight contests and will be playing the second night of a back-to-back after taking out Philadelphia last night! This could be a preview of a play off matchup, so you can bet this tilt will get emotional and physical. Boston has won three straight in the series, including an 86-72 victory in its last trip to Indiana on Apr. 7, 2012 last season, and I wont be surprised if this projected hard fought game comes down to the wire !..... Rondo or no Rondo- I feel this line is bloated!

Pick: UABFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
It's well under the national radar, but one of the more impressive down the stretch rallies has been turned in by UAB. The Blazers have made it all the way to the right side of the .500 plateau with a 6-1 surge, including the last four in succession. UAB plays its home finale here, and it's actually an important game as they now have a chance to make it to a minor tournament, but a loss here would be costly. The Blazers are catching UCF off a disappointing loss in its home closer, and that was one the Knights really wanted against Memphis. I'm not sold the road team will be very interested here, so I'd rather spot a few points and back the hosts, who should be more motivated. Let's make it UAB minus the points tonight.

Jim Feist

USC at Washington
Pick: Washington

A tough situational spot for USC, off of three consecutive home games. The Trojans are 16-33-3 ATS in their last 52 games overall and 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 road games. Washington (16-13) is showing some fight for a winning season, winning 3 of the last 4 games, evening winning at Arizona State as a +6 dog. The Huskies won 69-41 in Seattle last year over USC and historically the Huskies have finished strong in the last four regular-season conference games during the Lorenzo Romar era: Over the previous four seasons they have a combined record of 13-3 down the home stretch. Play Washington.

Pick: TulaneFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
In his third season at Tulane, Ed Conroy has turned around the fortunes in New Orleans and has the Green Wave on the verge of a 20-win campaign for the first time since 2000. However, despite five returning starters this season, Tulane has fallen into a disturbing trend recently of giving up early double-digit leads to the opponent before storming back in the second half. Conroy promises to have his team focused from the opening tip in Greenville, thanks to the revenge motive from last year’s season-closing loss to the Pirates, a defeat that denied Tulane a winning season. In this series, Tulane has won and covered 9 of the last 14 matchups, but the Green Wave has dropped the last two contests against East Carolina under Jeff Lebo, the former Carolina Tar Heel guard. Lebo learned his lessons well from the legendary Dean Smith as a 4-year letterman at UNC and he’s made strides at East Carolina, but this unit is not over the hump yet, going just 2-7 SU this season against opponents with a .600 or greater win percentage. In addition, the Pirates are coming off a same-season revenger with Southern Miss and have Marshall – who pummeled them by 19 in January – waiting on deck in their Last Home Game. Two pretty evenly matched teams, but we’ll take the points and grab the Green with the avenging Wave. We recommend a 1-unit play on Tulane.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
La Salle is adroitly navigating potential banana peels in the A-10 and staying on the safe side of the Big Dance cut line, thanks mainly to a stellar backcourt that was augmented by the mid-December addition of Virginia Tech transfer Tyrone Garland (12.1 ppg), who has emerged as loop's best six man. Coach Mike Lonergan's GWU (1-5 SU, 0-6 vs. the spread is last six) is losing altitude fast in the later stages of the season, and the Explorers already beat the Colonials by 9 at Foggy Bottom on Feb. 2, when six of HC John Giannini's charges scored in double figures. Play La Salle

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
San Diego State closes out its home schedule seeking to avenge a 70-67 loss at Air Force on Groundhogs Day in which the Aztecs were 4 point road favorites.  SDSU was in a letdown spot after their 55-34 blowout win over now-conference champ New Mexico a week earlier.  The week between games showed rust in addition to the letdown spot.  That win put Air Force at 5-2 in conference play but the Force has played poorly since, going 2-5 SU since (2-4-1 ATS) with 3 of the losses by a dozen points or more including a 15 point loss at weakling Fresno State (4-11 in Mountain West play).  Meanwhile San Diego State has been dominant at home all season, winning 5 straight and going 13-1 SU overall on its home court (5-3-1 ATS) with 10 wins by at least 12 points (6 by more than 20 points).  In winning 6 of 7 conference home games, SDSU has 3 wins by more than 20 points (including that 21 point rout of New Mexico).  In looking to improve its NCAA Tournament seeding and not wanting to be swept in the season series, look for San Diego State to wear down Air Force and win by from 17 to 21 points.

These two ACC foes come in pretty evenly matched as North Carolina is 21-8 and Maryland is 20-9, however in ACC play those numbers are far different with Maryland at just 8-8 while North Carolina is 11-5. Back on January 19th these two squads battled it out in Chapel Hill with the Tar Heels winning 62-52 with a big first half and holding on in the second. UNC is 9-3 since that game and Maryland is up and down at 6-5. Look for no love lost in this game between two old foes, but make it a season sweep for North Carolina as they beat up on the Terps early and often. Play North Carolina

This game fits a never lost totals system that pertains to teams like Phoenix that have 3 or more days rest and scored 90 or more as a home dog in their last game, vs an opponent like Toronto that scored 110 or more as a road dog in their last game. These games have flown over Every time since 1995 and have averaged a whopping 220 points per game. Had the sample size been a littler large we would have unit rated this one. Toronto has flown over the last 5 times as a road favorite of 4 or less and 4 of the last 5 times on the road if they scored 100 or more on the road in their last game. In the series 4 of the last 5 here in Phoenix have played over the total. Look for this one to go over the total tonight.

David Chan

Ottawa vs. Toronto
Pick: Toronto

Situational Analysis

Ottawa is coming off a 3-2 OT loss at the Islanders on Sunday. It was the third straight loss, and the Sens are struggling to put the biscuit in the basket.

Toronto is coming off a 4-2 win over New Jersey on Monday. Goaltender James Reimer has won two in a row. Reimer is a near perfect 5-1-1 with a 1.70 GAA vs. the Sens in his career.

Statistical Analysis

Note that Ottawa is 12-7-4 overall, but just 3-6-2 on the road. It's scored just four total goals to go 0-1-2 to start a five-game trip.

Note that Toronto is 4-1-0 in its last five in front of the home town crowd. The Leafs have scored at least four goals in the past three wins. Nazem Kadri has four goals and five assists during a five-game streak.

Pick Analysis

These teams have split two meetings this year. The Leafs won 3-0 at home on February 16th, before the Sens would return the favor in a 3-2 victory in Ottawa a week later. I believe this home ice advantage trend continues tonight, and that Toronto continues its excellent play of late. Consider laying the price!

I was surprised that Indiana lost to Ohio State but I will be shocked if the Wolverines follow that up with a loss on the road against Purdue. Michigan has already had their big slipup and Purdue is dead in the water. Plus the Hoosiers loss gives the Wolverines a shot at claiming a share of the Big Ten Championship with a win to close the season on the weekend. Michigan is a supremely talented team. Sure they are prone to losses but they could also beat the Boilermakers by 20 or more. They have already lost to Michigan by double digits this season and I expect they will again.

Pick: Brooklyn -9FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Charlotte Bobcats were the worst team in the NBA a year ago. They opened the season with a hopeful 7-5 start, but that was quickly exposed as an illusion. They have not won seven games since, and at 6-40 they are once again the doormat in the NBA. The latest streak is seven straight in the loss column both straight-up and ATS. This team has quit, losing 15 of 17 ATS. They aren't even close to competing, as evidenced by their last six games where they have lost by an NBA record 146 points. That losing margin breaks down to an average of -24.3 points per game. Until further notice, there is only one way to play this and that is against them. Go with Brooklyn.

New Mexico at NevadaFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Prediction: NevadaFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The simulator shows a high probability that Nevada will lose this game by eight or fewer points. It also projects a serious potential for a major upset so given that projection consider playing a 7* amount on the line and a 3* amount using the money line. Nevada is a solid 9-1 ATS (+7.9 Units) after playing 3 consecutive games as an underdog over the last 3 seasons; 15-5 ATS (+9.5 Units) in home games after 2 or more consecutive losses since 1997; 7-0 ATS (+7.0 Units) after 5 or more consecutive losses since 1997. In their previous game, New Mexico defeated Nevada by 13 points, 75-62 and pushed on the line. Nevada struggled hitting just 40.7%, but remained competitive. I strongly believe that Nevada will execute well enough to put a real score into the Lobos and possibly get a shocking upset. Further, Nevada is 38-18 ATS (+18.2 Units) revenging a loss where opponent scored 75 or more points since 1997.

Iowa State -3FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
This game means a lot more to the Cyclones than it does to the Cowboys. Iowa State has played great at home with a 15-1 record. This is also a revenge game for the Cyclones who blew a big lead late in the game and ended up losing by two points on the road against Oklahoma State back in January. The Cyclones know they are a bubble team right now and they need a strong finish in their last two games of the season. Playing at home is a huge advantage for Iowa State. They have a 7-3 ATS record as a home favorite and they have already proven they can play with Oklahoma State. The Cyclones are the better team even though their record may not reflect it. They have had trouble closing out games, but most of that trouble has come on the road. Playing on the comfort of their home court and trying to secure an NCAA Tournament bid should be more than enough to change the outcome of this conference showdown.

It comes down to this: The Lakers can't lose this game to the Hornets and expect to make the playoffs.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
It's a back-to-back spot for the Lakers and Kobe Bryant is hurting. But I see the Lakers sucking it up and beating the Hornets, a team they have dominated and own a huge talent edge against.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Hornets are 21-40, last in the Southwest Division. They dropped 15 of their last 17 to the Lakers, including the past nine. Los Angeles has won the past five times in New Orleans.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Hornets blew a 17-point second-half lead at home to Orlando, which ranks with Charlotte as the worst team in the NBA, in a 105-102 loss two nights ago. It was the Hornets' sixth loss in their last eight games. They are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games.

Michigan/ Purdue Under 133: The Wolverine defense has struggled on the road at times this year, as they allow 69.8 ppg away from home, but the Boilers are not all that great on offense, averaging just 64.4 ppg overall and 67.8 ppg at home. Purdue is also one of the worst 3 point shooting teams in the Big 10 (31.6%) and one of the worst from the charity stripe (63.2%), so I do expect this offense to struggle putting up points tonight. The Michigan offense does average 71.4 ppg on the road, but coming close to that mark may not be easy tonight vs a Purdue team that allows just 59.8 ppg on 38.2% shooting on their home floor. Michigan has also struggled from long range of late, hitting just 26.4% from downtown in their last 5 games and they shoot under 69% from the charity stripe on the road. I don't expect more than 65 from Michigan. Pace is also key here and Michigan is 244th in tempo, while Purdue is 166th, so this will not be a run and gun game. Hard to see this game hitting 130 points at all.

Tennessee-Martin/ Morehead State Over 147.5: This should be a fast paced uptempo game as UT-Martin is 59th in the nation in tempo, while Morehead is 33rd. Some Morehead's stats are skewed in the last 6 games as OT has helped them have some higher scoring games. Still we note that their their last 6 games (Regulation) have averaged 156.5 ppg and they recently had a game vs Tenn State in which 201 points were scored without OT. UT-Martin has had no OT games of late and their last 7 games have averaged 154 ppg. Defense has not been a gameplan of these teams this year as UT-Martin has allowed 78 ppg overall and 79.4 ppg away from home, while Morehead State has allowed 73.7 ppg overall and 75.4 ppg away from home. Neither offense is great, but in an uptempo game with two horrid defenses on the court, I see no reason why we cant get this game in the 150's at least.

SAN DIEGO STATE -12.5 over Air Force: The Falcons have been a superb team at home this year, but out on the road they are just 3-8 SU. In those 8 road losses they are 1-7 ATS and have been outscored by 17.1 ppg, while in their last 5 road losses they have gone 0-5 ATS and have been outscored by 18.8 ppg in those games. Bottom line there is that when this team loses on the road, they lose big. Now they have to travel to face a San Diego State squad that is 13-1 SU at home and has outscored their opponents by 16.6 ppg in each of their last 5 conference home wins. In those last 5 they beat Wyoming by 28 and New Mexico by 21 and certainly will have the horses in this one to win by at least 17 here. The Aztecs also have revenge on their minds for an earlier loss to the Falcons and the motivation of senior night is also there. This one has blowout written all over it.

West Virginia/ Oklahoma Under 139: Back in January these teams hooked up and just 124 points were scored in that game. I don't expect much more than 130 in this one. Sure Oklahoma's last 5 games have averaged 162.8 ppg, but 2 of those games did go int OT and they did play 5 teams that are either uptempo or have bad defense. Well I don't don't expect an all out fast paced game as WVU plays at a pretty slow pace (240th) and they will look to slow it down to have any shot at winning this one. The Mountaineers average just 61.3 ppg on 38% shooting on the road this year and they haven't scored more than 66 points in their last 8 games overall. I don't expect more than the low 60's from them here, especially vs an Oklahoma defense that allows just 60.5 ppg on 39.1% shooting on their home floor. The Sooners do average 73.7 ppg at home, but I can sen them being held to 71 points or less vs a Mountaineer team that has allowed 70.7 ppg on the road. Im not really expecting an uptempo game and that should give us a 71-61 type of final.

Toronto Raptors -1½FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Toronto Raptors are favored for a reason tonight. They are clearly the better team and I look for that to show tonight as they take down the overmatched Phoenix Suns.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Few teams in the league have suffered as many close losses as these Raptors. That's why at 23-38, this team is clearly better than its record would indicate. Look for Toronto to come in highly motivated to put an end to its current 5-game losing streak.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Phoenix comes in overvalued due to its 3-game winning streak. This team has a ton of injury issues right now with Gran Gragic (hip), Marcus Morris (toe), Markieff Morris (knee) and Jermane O'Neal (personal) all banged up.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
This play falls into a system that is 40-15 (72.7%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet on road favorites (TORONTO) - an average team (+/- 3 PPG differential) against a poor team (-3 to -7 PPG differential), after allowing 110 points or more.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Toronto is 29-13 ATS after having lost 6 or 7 of their last 8 games over the last 2 seasons. Phoenix is 5-16 ATS revenging a road loss vs opponent this season. The Suns are 10-19 ATS in all home games this season. The Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. Bet the Raptors Wednesday.
