The Montreal Canadiens sit at the top of the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of the Boston Bruins. The Habs stumbled against the Isles in their last game, losing 6-3 on Tuesday night. They will be on the road again Thursday, taking on the Hurricanes in Raleigh.
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: Recent History - The Hurricanes are playing great hockey right now, currently on a four game winning streak. Leading scorer Eric Staal has nine points in those four games.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
2: Situational/Motivational  - With Cam Ward out of the lineup, 32 year old backup netminder Dan Ellis will be looking to make the most of this opportunity. Ellis has looked great at times earlier this year, winning two of his three home starts, allowing just one goal in those two victories.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
3: X-Factor - Carey Price has been one of the league's best goaltenders so far this season, but he's really struggled in his last two games. He's given up 12 goals, losing back to back games in his last two starts. It wouldn't be surprising to see coach Michel Therrien to give Price the night off in Carolina. (If Price does play, he may still not be his usual self.)

With Virginia once again tossed into bubble trouble after Sunday’s loss at BC that partially undid much of the good done by previous win over high-ranked Duke, Tony Benentt’s bunch has to approach this trip to Tallahassee with some added urgency. While the Cavs haven’t often taken their KO power with them away from Charlottesville, they did asphyxiate FSU at John Paul Jones Arena on Jan. 19 when limiting Noles to just one triple in 15 tries beyond the arc and forcing them into 18 TOs, converted into 20 UVa points in a 56-36 romp.  Moreover, money-burning FSU owns just 2 covers its last 14 games overall, so the case for the hosts is a tough one to make.  Note that the Cavs’ 6-6 wing Joe Harris has been en fuego the past five weeks, scoring 21.7 ppg his last ten outings.

Simply a tough spot for the Oilers, who must turn around and hit the road for a game the following night in Nashville, before heading to undefeated Chicago on Sunday. Sometimes a favorite is a favorite for a reason, and in this case, I have no problem in recommending a second look at the home side in this one!

When the Seminoles host the Cavaliers in this ACC clash in Tallahassee Thursday evening, FSU will take the court looking to avenge a 20-point whipping suffered in Charlottesville earlier this season. That should be plenty of incentive for the for the painted faces given the fact they are 19-8 ATS in this series, including 6-0 ATS when avenging a same season loss. With the visiting team 6-19-1 ATS in Virginia games this season, look for the upset here tonight.  We recommend a 1-unit play on Florida State.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Colorado goes for the series sweep against Oregon tonight as well as gaining another quality win to bolster its tournament résumé.  As of now, Colorado is part of the projected NCAA Tournament field but not by much. This is the last chance in the regular season for the Buffaloes to grab a quality win as they finish the season on Saturday against Oregon St. they are coming off a 16-point loss at California last Saturday which put an end to a solid 5-1 run but Colorado heads home where it is 11-2 on the season, losing only to UCLA and Arizona St. by a combined four points, the latter defeat coming in overtime by a point. Currently the Buffaloes are in fifth place in the Pac 12 and have to win out and get help from Arizona St. to claim the fourth seed and a first round bye in the upcoming Pac 12 Tournament so they need to take care of business. Oregon has won two straight games to improve to 12-4 in the conference and is currently in first place by a half-game so there is a lot at stake for the Ducks as well. They have not been playing great on the road however. Even though they are 2-2 in their last four games on the highway, the two wins came at Washington and Washington St., two teams that will not be part of the Big Dance. Oregon is still not 100 percent healthy as point guard Dominic Artis is finally just getting back. Coach Dana Altman plans to work Artis back in slowly, possibly targeting next week's Pac-12 Tournament to shift him back into the starting lineup. Colorado won the first meeting in Eugene thanks to a strong second half and while the Ducks will be out for revenge, it won't be easy here. Colorado falls into a great situation where we play on home teams where the line is +3 to -3 that are averaging between 67 and 74 ppg going up against teams allowing 63 or fewer ppg after allowing 65 points or less three straight games. This situation is 82-37 ATS (68.9 percent) since 1997.

Pick: VancouverFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Here's a perfect opportunity for the waffling Canucks to earn a win over a perennial cellar dweller. Vancouver will be looking to atone for a painful 3-2 shootout loss to the Sharks on Tuesday: "Our record isn't as good of late, but we know we can play some better hockey," said the Canucks' Mason Raymond last night. But Vancouver has enjoyed a ton of success vs. the Blue Jackets, going 10-0-1 in the last 11 in the series, outscoring them 42-23 in that span (and Vancouver is 5-4 this year vs. teams with losing records). The last team in the league has bee playing over its head of late, winning two straight. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has never played against Vancouver though, while Steve Mason is just 1-4-2 with a 3.46 GAA over his last seven vs. it (and Columbus is 0-3 this year after scoring 4 goals or more in its previous contest). Canucks goaltender Cory Schneider is 3-1-1 with a 2.17 GAA on the road, and a 2.00 GAA in winning five straight over Columbus. The beleaguered Roberto Luongo is 3-0-1 with a 1.66 GAA over his last four in this series. Columbus has a home-and-home set vs Detroit over the weekend, before playing Vancouver again next Thursday. The Canucks will be looking to take advantage of a soft stretch, with two whole days off after tonights contest, a game at Minnesota on Sunday, before returning to this very building. Consider laying the price on the "better" team.

Montana won by nearly 30 here last season vs Sacramento St and beat them on the road earlier in the season despite a poor effort. We note that Montana has been Money when playing off 3+ road games going a perfect 6-0 straight up and ats. They fit a late season system that pertain to Home teams off back to back road games and have won and covered the last 5 here in the series. Of late they are 6-2 ats as a home favorite from -9.5 to -12. Sacramento St is 4-13 with just 3 spread wins in March games and 0-4 with home loss revenge. They have lost to the spread in 10 of their 13 losses and are 2-22 and 7-13 ats vs winning teams. Even with the injured players Montana should cash this one. Make it Montana tonight.

With the league's 3rd (Nuggets) & 9th (Clippers) best scoring offenses, you better believe this game will include some high scoring firepower. The OVER is 10-4 in the Clippers last 14 games vs. NBA Northwest opponents. The Over is 14-3 in Denver's last 17 games vs. NBA Pacific opponents. The OVER is also 11-3 in Denver's last 14 home games. Play Clippers-Denver Over.

Stevens vs. Kellogg. Okay, I'm not thrilled with the specter of having the UMass guy in the battle of the coaches. But even with one of the best in the business calling the shots, this is simply not a good Butler team right now. The lack of a true point guard has become a very exploitable weakness, and UMass has the personnel and plays the pace that should provide problems for the Bulldogs tonight. One could argue and I would not disagree that this has suddenly become a very big game for the fading visitors. But the fact is their current form is just not very good, while the Minutemen have been coming on strong and loom as a legit threat in the upcoming A-10 Tourney. My sense is that the betting public is going to side with Butler here, and I really can't fault their reasoning. But I am going to have to go with what I've been witnessing lately, and that gets me to the Massachusetts side to emerge with the win and cover tonight.

Wisconsin at Michigan State
Pick: Michigan State

Up and down Wisconsin has struggled against Michigan State, with the Badgers 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The Badgers are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. Michigan State has great defense and balance, able to score inside and out. The home team is 13-5 ATS in the last 18 meetings between these Big 10 rivals and the Badgers are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Michigan State. Play Michigan State!

The simulator shows a high probability that Kentucky will win this game by five or more points. Supporting this graded play is a proven system posting a 54-26 ATS mark for 68% winners since 1997. Play on road teams where the line is +3 to -3 (KENTUCKY) and are average 3-point shooting teams making between 32 and 36.5% and facing an average 3-point defense allowing 32 to 36.5% and after 15+ games and after 2 straight games allowing a shooting percentage of 37% or less.?Stands to reason that Calipari would focus on the defensive end as they battle to just make the NCAA Tournament to defend their National Championship. They have played their best defense of the year in the past two games, but somehow managed to lose 73-60 at Arkansas. They have won eight of the past 11 games though and are coming on strong down the stretch. A win tonight and then they host Florida Saturday for the regular season finale. A won over the Gators will be enough to get them in the Tournament, but they must focus all of their attention on the Bulldogs tonight. Calipari is rock solid 22-8 ATS (+13.2 Units) facing very good defensive teams posting a shooting percentage defense of <=39% after 15+ games of the regular season in all games he has coached since 1997. In this must-win game, I will risk a 10* amount on the Wildcats.

Play: Louisiana TechFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Louisiana Tech’s defense has been playing extremely well. They had played three straight games allowing less than 36% shooting. You should always play on road teams like Louisiana Tech when the line is +3 to -3 and they are an average 3 point shooting team against an average 3 point defense after the 15+ game point in the season and after two straight games allowing a shooting percentage of 37% or less. This system is 54-26 (68%) since 1997. New Mexico State has lost two of their last three games straight up and ATS. They have struggled against much weaker opponents like Idaho and Seattle. They will have their hands full when they face a La Tech team that has won 18 consecutive games. The Bulldogs have won their last three games by double digit margins and they have peeled off eight consecutive wins on the road.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
There's certainly nothing wrong with either one of these teams on the offensive end, but tonight's total has been over-adjusted for what I believe is faulty public perception. The teams have met twice this season and the totals posted for those games were 207 and 204 1/2. The last time the teams met, Denver won 92-78, finishing 37 points below the closing total. Go back to last year's first matchup and including all six games since and only one has seen a total posted higher than 205 1/2 and that was the 207 mentioned earlier. Let's not forget that the Clippers are the NBA's fourth stingiest defense, allowing just over 94 ppg and they're 7th in FG percentage allowed. They're 19-7 to the Under in their last 26 games against teams with a winning SU record. Meanwhile, the Nuggets are 10-3 to the Under against teams with a winning SU record and the series itself is on a 9-4 Under run. Those are all telling trends, but mostly we feel tonight's total has simply been adjusted too much.

Montreal -102 over CAROLINAFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
OT included. The Hurricanes are first in the Southeast after notching their fourth straight win on Tuesday against Buffalo. They were outshot 40-28 in that game and with a two goal lead, Carolina gave up a short-handed goal with 50 seconds left in the game forcing the 'Canes to hang on for the victory. That’s troubling. Against Florida on Sunday, the ‘Canes were outshot 36-24. Offensively, these Hurricanes have plenty of weapons but defensively we’re seeing some serious flaws that are going to catch up to them. The Hurricanes last four wins have come against Pittsburgh, Buffalo and two victories over the Panthers. What those four have in common is that they’re all weak defensively. The same fate does not await them here.

The Canadiens defense and goaltending remain one of the best combined units in the league. Their 59 goals against is fourth in the East behind Boston, the Rangers and Ottawa. The Habs are usually well-prepped for each and every game, which has led them to one of the best records in the league. This speedy and well-balanced guest is exactly the type of team that has given the Hurricanes difficulty all season long, making this the right time to step in against them.

OT included. The Red Wings have won four of their past six games and are now right back in the thick of the playoff race with 26 points, just one point behind Vancouver for third in the East. Detroit is also just two points ahead of four other teams, meaning one loss could send them from 4th place to 9th place. That’s an indication to how close this playoff race is and how each game is so important. The intensity levels are higher than usual and the Red Wings just aren’t deep enough to expect to win when the intensity level drops a notch as we expect it to here. Detroit has been involved in four straight 2-1 games where it went 2-2. Two of those went into OT and one of those was against Chicago. The other three 2-1 contests were against Los Angeles, San Jose and Colorado. The Red Wings have lost their last two games against Columbus this season and they have a home and home series with the Jackets on deck this weekend. Detroit could get caught flat-footed here.

Every so often, the Oilers put forth an effort that makes them look like the Oilers of the 80’s as they did in a recent 5-1 win in Dallas. Edmonton has lost four of five on this current road trip but they have picked up points in three of those five games with one win and two OT losses. Edmonton is also getting healthier. Taylor Hall returned to the lineup in the Oilers last game and Edmonton will get a couple more key players back for this one. The Oilers still possess an extremely dangerous offense that could give the Red Wings a lot more than they bargained for and at this price, they are certainly worth a wager.

PHOENIX +102 over St. LouisFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
OT included. The Coyotes continue to be the hard-working and pesky club that they’ve always been. Backed by balanced scoring and the most underrated defensemen in the league in Keith Yandle, Phoenix is once again in a playoff position and will play its hearts out to remain there the rest of way. The Coyotes have won four of their past five home games including two over the Ducks and one over the Canucks. Despite playing its third game in four days, Phoenix should not be a dog at home against the reeling Blues.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Blues come in here in a foul mood after blowing a 4-1, third period lead in Los Angeles on Tuesday. That was the Blue Notes fifth loss in seven games with only two wins over that stretch occurring against Columbus and Edmonton. After a 6-1-1 start and looking like contenders, St. Louis’s season is now bordering on disastrous. The Blues’ save percentage, No. 1 in the NHL last season at .929, has fallen to No. 30 (.870) this year. Brian Elliott, who led the NHL with a .940 save percentage last season has slipped to .851 this season. Jaroslav Halak, who turned in a .925 mark a year ago, is now sitting at .884. With nowhere else to turn, St. Louis has called up goaltender Jake Allen from Peoria for this start. That’s not the answer. The left side of the defense is a mess. Unlike a year ago, the Blues are not sustaining any offensive pressure. It’s been one and done for them all season.  The Blues defensemen were not as exposed last year because they spent so much time in the offensive zone (until LA in playoffs). The opposition has figured them out and now the Blue Notes are just another beatable team in the NHL. The Coyotes feast on disorganization.

The wrong team is favored in this matchup. Florida State is a complete different team at home on than on the road. They have lost three of four all by double-digits, but all three came on the road. The Seminoles are 5-2 over their last seven home games with the only two losses coming against the two best teams in the ACC in Miami and Duke. What makes this a strong play is the fact that Virginia has really struggled on the road. The Cavaliers are a miserable 3-8 away from home. Virginia is 5-4 over their last 9 games and all four of those losses came on the road. Too much value on the Seminoles to not play here.

I'll grab the points in what is an extremely motivated spot for Oregon. With UCLA losing at Washington State last night, the Ducks can earn at least a share of the Pac-12 title with a win. Plus, this game is personal. Oregon was defeated by a single point by Colorado in last month's meeting so the Ducks will be out for some payback. Oregon is a reliable 20-10 ATS in all conference road games since Dana Altman took over. Furthermore, Altman has proven the master of revenge as his squads are are on a 43-25 ATS when out for revenge for a same-season loss to an opponent. They have won by an average score of 72.5 to 66.8 in these contests. The Ducks enter with plenty of momentum on their side following back-to-back double-digit wins over Stanford and Oregon State. These wins are significant because the Ducks are 7-1 ATS this season following 2 straight wins by 10 points or more. They have won by an average score of 75.5 to 58.5 in this situation. Take the points.

It has been a rough season for San Jose State. The Spartans were a respectable 9-6 in the early going, but then the wheels fell off, as they have gone 0-12 since. This team has all the markings of a team that has not only lost their confidence, but have quit as well. San Jose St. has lost their last five games by an average of 18.4 points per game. Texas San Antonio has risen above a bad season by winning three of their last four, and have revenge to play for here, and I expect them to get it. The Roadrunners have run the table in their last four when taking on a team with a losing home record, while the Spartans have taken the donut at home in their last eight at 0-8 ATS. Play on UT San Antonio in this one.
