Pick: DetroitFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
These teams have played twice this year: Detroit won 5-3 at home on January 25th. Minnesota won 3-2 at home on February 17th. Minnesota is 16-10-2 overall, but just 6-7-1 on the road. The Wild have won three straight and are coming off a 3-1 victory over the Canucks on Monday. Detroit is 14-10-5, including 9-4-3 at home. The Wings have enjoyed a few days off to prepare for this game after beating the Canucks 5-2 in Vancouver on Saturday. Both teams come in with momentum, but at this price, the well-rested home side is simply too good a deal to pass up. Look for Detroit to continue its dominance in this series at Joe Louis Arena, and consider laying the price.

Golden State vs. San AntonioFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Play: Under 203½FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
San Antonio can play any style, including defense, allowing 96.5 ppg --11th best in the NBA. Without Tony Parker, though, the offense loses a key piece. Into town comes Golden State, a team that has plenty to play for, fighting for playoff positioning. They have good balance and come off a pair of terrific wins, blowing out New Orleans on Monday and winning at Houston Sunday, 108-78, both on the road. Coach Mark Jackson is demanding that they get back to playing tough defense and they are, allowing 78 and 72 points the last two games. They are on a 4-2 run under the total and the Spurs will be content to play a slower back than oddsmakers expect. Play the Warriors/Spurs under the total.

Pick: MemphisFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Yesterday's winner on Milwaukee, part of a 5-0 Tuesday sweep, brought me to 5-0 my last five NBA & 18-4 my last 22. A couple of those recent winners have involved Memphis.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
I successfully played "on" the Grizzlies in their most recent game, a 15-point win. I also successfully played "against" them in their previous game, a 6-point loss ...
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
While they're up against one of the top teams in the league, I believe this looks like another spot to play "on" the Grizzlies.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Many bettors don't ever imagine that "elite" teams (like OKC) can lose two in a row. However, it can (and does) happen.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
While the Grizzlies had yesterday off, the Thunder were busy losing against Denver. In addition to playing the second of back-to-back games, they'll also be playing their third game in the past four days and their 9th game in the past 14 days. That's a pretty grueling stretch, even for an athletic team like the Thunder.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Grizzlies upset the Thunder at OKC in this season's first meeting but proceeded to lose to them (also at OKC) in the most recent meeting. That puts them in the "revenge" role here, a role which has typically been very good to them.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
When facing a team which defeated them in the most recent meeting, the Grizzlies are 11-7 ATS (12-6 SU) their last 18 and a profitable 58-39 ATS the past few seasons.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Grizzlies are also 15-7-1 ATS (18-5 SU!) off a double-digit victory and 14-7-1 ATS when facing a team which averages 99 or more points per game. Looking back a little further finds them at a lucrative 60-30-1 ATS the past few seasons, against teams which average 99 or more points per game.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
While the Thunder are a respectable 20-13 on the road, the Grizzlies are a much better 26-8 here at Memphis. Take a look at the home team.

Elon vs. CanisiusFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Pick: CanisiusFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Canisius provided decent spread value at times this season, although it was unfortunate to be caught in the pile-up of contenders in the ultra-competitive Metro-Atlantic. Partly because of the traffic jam in that league, the Griffins ended their season on a 4-game spread skid.  But Canisius was good enough to win at Temple in December, and on their best nights, the Griffs’ backcourt can pack a mighty wallop, with transfer Billy Baron (ex-Virginia & Rhode Island and son of HC Jim Baron; 16.9 ppg), UCF transfer Isaac Sosa (12 ppg); and holdover Harold “The Mayor” Washington (13.9 ppg).  Meanwhile, Elon (just 3-8 vs. line its last 11) slowed going down the stretch, and the Phoenix don’t guard the arc conscientiously, allowing almost 37% triples, which is potential bad news vs. bombs-away Baron, Sosa, & Washington.

Play: Atlanta HawksFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Hawks fit a solid system that plays on home favorites with 1 day of rest at -5 or more and a total that is 200 or higher, if they scored 110 or more as a home favorite, while shooting 55% or higher with 25 or more assists, vs an opponent like Milwaukee that scored 90 or more as a home favorite. These home teams are a solid 16-1 straight up and 14-3 ats. The Hawks are also 13-1 ats off a home loss where they had 5 or less offensive rebounds. They are 10-4 ats off a loss of 10 or more and the Bucks are just 3-9 straight up and ats in the 2nd half vs winning teams. Take Atlanta tonight.

Pick: Boise StateFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
There's not much to choose between Boise State and La Salle. The teams power rate just about even, the number is in that neighborhood, and these two teams should be thrilled at being included in the 68-team field. My biggest worry in this game is a letdown from Boise State, as the Broncos had to win several big games just to make it here. But the flip side of that comment is that at Boise has been able to win those important games. Can't say the same for the Explorers, who came up short in their biggest games down the stretch. I give Leon Rice an edge over John Giannini on the sidelines, and I also think the Broncos have the game-breaker in Marks. Tough game, figures close, but in the end I'm going to tab Boise State to advance with the win and cover.

Detroit at Arizona St.FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Prediction: DetroitFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Titans (20-12) are an outstanding offensive team that is 23rd in the nation in Offensive Efficiency. Point guard Ray McCollum runs the show -- and he does a great job of protecting the basketball as Detroit turns the ball over in only 15.3% of their possessions which is 3rd best in the nation. This translates into effective play on the road. Arizona (21-12) is 15-4 on their home court this season -- but the Titans have covered the point spread in 8 of their last 11 road games against teams with a winning percentage over 60% at home. The Wildcats limp into the NIT having lost five of their last six games. Their motivation to continue playing after blowing a possible Big Dance bid to close out the season has to be questioned. As it is, college basketball metrics expert Ken Pomeroy actually places Detroit three spots ahead in his ranking system over Arizona's #78 rating. Take the points with the more motivated Titans team.

Anyone watch the results come in from last nights NIT Action?  I did.  Robert Morris beats Kentucky, huge dogs covering and in some cases winning.  That is March madness where nothing comes easy.  Yes the Sycamores are Mo Valley and Iowa is Big 10, but the Mo Valley is a tough mid major and Iowa is a middle of the pack Big 10 team....and while Iowa should get the win, they have no business laying this number in any March Mandess scenario.  ISU will not lay down and give them a game, this is a team who Wichita State at home by double digits.

Air Force has averaged a mere 61.7 points per game on the road and they are getting only 27 rebounds per game. This is a major mismatch when compared to a Hawaii team that averages 40 rebounds per game on their home court and 74.3 points per game.

The Air Force defense is almost as bad as the offense when playing on the road. They have allowed an average of 71.1 points per game which means they are being outscored on the road by an average of almost 10 points. Hawaii is 13-6 straight up at home and they have held opponents to 39.6% shooting from the field. The Falcons are outmatched from every angle in this game.

Purdue - over Western IllinoisFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Western Illinois is the slowest pace team in the nation and the Leathernecks only post 59 points per game despite being a respectable shooting team. The Summit League had three teams with strong records this year but overall the quality of the league appears down with a lot of bad teams at the bottom. Western Illinois really has no quality wins to speak of outside of beating North Dakota State twice in conference play. While the slow pace and defensive focus can work against teams not used to it, Purdue will be well versed in the style coming out of the Big Ten. It was a disappointing losing season for the Boilermakers in a rebuilding year but there is some talent on this squad and given how strong the Big Ten was this season the 8-10 finish was pretty respectable, getting wins over Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. This is a Purdue team that was playing its best ball late in the season with a 3-3 finish in the final six games and the three losses coming by a total of just 17 points including a close call with highly ranked Michigan. Purdue had to play one of the nation's toughest schedules so the losing record was understandable and while some Big Ten teams would be disappointed to be in this tournament this seems to be a team excited to keep playing and keep improving. While the perception is often that most small conference teams are excited by these late season tournament opportunities it may not be the case for the Leathernecks as this team shared the conference regular season title with South Dakota State and had sites on the NCAA bid before losing to North Dakota State and having to play late in the season without two key players due to late season injuries. Things spiraled out of control for Western Illinois and it will be hard to get a premium effort tonight.

Charleston Southern at Southern Mississippi
Pick: Charleston Southern +12FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Southern Mississippi has to be feeling the pain after blowing several opportunities to close out Memphis and earn a bid to the Big Dance. The Golden Eagles can turn to their 15-28 from the charity stripe performance and only wonder what if? It will be hard to get things going against a lesser, and unknown opponent in Charleston Southern. The Buccaneers are unknown and untested, but have only lost one game all season by 14 or more, despite playing against Wichita State, Charlotte, Arizona, and Alabama. They certainly have proven that they can hang tough vs. better competition, and vs. a depleted Golden Eagles team, they should hang inside an inflated number. Take the points on Charleston Southern.

Indiana State +12.5 over IOWA:  Indiana State comes in struggling, winning just 2 of their last 8 games, but I still feel they are the right side in this game. The Sycamores are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games vs the Big 10 and they have wins over Miami and Mississippi this year, so this is a team that will not be intimidated in this one. The Sycamores are just 4-9 on the road this year, but have been outscored by just 3 ppg away from home, so they have the ability to keep it close, especially with a defense that is 71st in the nation in efficiency. The Hawkeyes do average 70.4 ppg on the year, but this is a poor shooting team that checks in at 230th in FG% overall and 318th in 3 point shooting. The Hawkeyes do play solid defense and Indiana State is not a great offensive team, but I feel that their defense will do enough to keep them in this one. We also may get a flat Iowa squad as this is not where they expected to be. Look for the Sycamores to keep this one Close.

Detroit/ ASU Over 153:  Not only does Detroit play at the 21st highest tempo in the nation, but they are also very efficient at it. The Titans average 78.1 ppg on the year (8th in nation) and they are 23rd nationally in offensive efficiency. Detroit is also 55th in the nation in FG% (45.9) and they hit 71.9% of their FT's. This team can score in many ways thanks to their pace, but because of that pace they also give up allot of points. Detroit checks in at 272nd in points allowed (70.5 ppg), 319th in defensive FG% overall (46.3%) and 312th in 3pt defense (37.2). That gives an ASU squad that puts up 71 ppg (87th) on 45.7% shooting (58th) an excellent shot at hitting the high 70's or even low 80's in this one. ASU is not really an uptempo team, but they will run with teams and I feel that Detroit gives them the opportunity to run in this one. ASU plays pretty good defense at home, but I feel that Detroit can score 75+ here, while ASU will flirt with 80+ of their own.

Western Illinois/ Purdue Under 115:  You know you play allot of low scoring games when you are 22-8 on the year, yet average just 59.3 ppg. That's exactly what Western Illinois does. This is a very slow paced team (347th in tempo) and their offensive efficiency is poor at 27th in the nation. They do have trouble scoring, but their pace also has allot to do with that. Defense though is a big reason why this team is 22-8 on the year. The Leathernecks come in ranked 2nd in the nation in points allowed (52.7) and 34th in defensive FG% (39.3) and they will be taking on a Purdue offense that is 230th in the nation in scoring (65.2). The do average 69.4 ppg at home, but I just don't see them getting enough scoring chances at this pace to even come close to that average. The Boiler defense has been solid at home, where they allow just 61.8 ppg and W. Illinois averages just 58.5 ppg on the road. The Boilers have been involved in some ugly low scoring games this year and that is the pace that Western Illinois will look to employ. Both teams play very good defense and that should keep the scoring down, especially in a slow paced game.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Regulation only. The Maple Leafs are in a funk but it’s their first slump of the year and reports are that they’ve had some very spirited practices over the past few days. Rested and with their healthiest lineup of the year, the Maple Leafs figure to leave nothing on the table tonight. Toronto has had nothing but success against the Lightning over the past few years with five wins its last six games versus Tampa while popping seven goals in two of those six contests. The Leafs have also defeated the Bolts in 14 of the past 20 games at the ACC.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Tampa comes in with just five wins in 13 road games. It is without several key players including Vincent Lecavalier, Ryan Malone and Victor Hedman. The Bolts have just six wins over their past 22 games and two of those victories came against the hapless Panthers. Over the past week, the Lightning were outshot in two games against the Islanders and Florida by a combined count of 68-31. This is a Lightning team in trouble with poor goaltending, a weak defense and secondary lines that rarely produce. Toronto is 5-0 this season at home against teams playing under .400 hockey on the road and this guest may be the worst of them all.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Regulation only. The Red Wings are hanging around the .500 mark but continue to struggle against teams above them in the standings. Three of Detroit’s last four wins have come against the Oilers twice and the Avalanche once. Over its past five games, Detroit has lost to the Jackets twice and the Flames once. The Red Wings now return home from the dreaded three-game trip to the Canadian West Coast in what players have described for years as the most difficult three-game trip of the season. In this shortened campaign, that excursion has taking an added toll on clubs. Now, the Red Wings have the difficult task now of having to face one of the NHL’s hottest clubs after that tasking trip.

The Wild have shot up the standings over the past month and are now atop the Northwest Division after defeating the Canucks on Monday. That was Minnesota’s third win in succession and fifth win in six games. Offensively challenged over the first few weeks, Minnesota’s offense has found another gear, scoring 18 goals over its last four wins. The best news however, is that Minnesota is currently on an 8-0 run against teams with a losing record and Detroit comes in one game under .500.

EDMONTON +105 over San JoseFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Regulation only. The Sharks are favored on the road here because why? San Jose has one road win over its past eight games and two road wins over its past 13 away. Overall, the Sharks have four road wins in 15 games this season. San Jose has allowed five goals in consecutive games and three or more in seven straight. This is a Sharks team that has underachieved in the playoffs for years and this season, where just about every game has a playoff-like feel and atmosphere, the Sharks are doing what they always do when intensity levels are high. They become soft and beatable.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Oilers recently returned home from a nine-game trip in which they defeated Chicago and Colorado in the final two games of that excursion. They returned home to face Nashville and Detroit and picked up three out of a possible four points. Edmonton will now play its third home game in succession after going 3-0-1 over its past four. The Oilers are healthier right now than they’ve been in years and they’re getting major production from plenty of their top guys. Taylor Hall, the first overall pick in the 2010 draft continues to emerge with two goals and five assists in the last four games. Primed to make a playoff run (Edmonton is just two points out entering this one) and with a chance to leapfrog over San Jose tonight, expect the Rexall Center to be electric in what is one of the most important games the Oilers have played in years. Wrong side favored.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
I'm backing the Memphis Grizzlies tonight as a small home favorite over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Memphis just keeps on winning even after trading away Rudy Gay. The Grizzlies have won 15 of their last 18 games overall heading into this contest.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Oklahoma City is a very tired team right now, and it showed signs of that by fading late in a 104-114 home loss to the Denver Nuggets last night. Now, the Thunder will be playing the second of a back-to-back, and their 9th game in 14 days.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Memphis is 26-8 at home this season where it is outscoring opponents by 6.2 points/game. The Grizzlies have won two of their last three meetings with the Thunder despite all three of those contests being played on the road. This will be their first home meeting of the season, and I look for Memphis to protect its home court tonight.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Grizzlies are 26-8 ATS in their last 34 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. The Thunder are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. Memphis is 51-24-3 ATS in its last 78 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Bet the Grizzlies Wednesday.

North Dakota's men's basketball team moves on to its third straight postseason, and I'm sorry, but the Northern Iowa Panthers are laying far too many points in the opening round game of the 2013 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament.

In a matchup of third-place teams from Mid-Major Conferences, I don't think the oddsmakers know just how good UND is, as it finished up impressively in its first campaign in the Big Sky Conference with a 12-8 mark.

And prior to getting involved in the Big Sky schedule, North Dakota - the team with no nickname until 2015 - was pummeled by this Northern Iowa team. The Panthers dealt UND a 72-47 defeat more than three months ago in what was the third game of the season for UND.

Now it could be time for revenge.

I know Northern Iowa is a dangerous team, and can certainly be deadly when getting hot from beyond the arc, but I don't know how inspired the Panthers will be for this one. This was a team that started out with high hopes in the Missouri Valley conference.

And after a third-place finish in an always-tough conference, you're telling me the Panthers couldn't even get an NIT invite? Again, I don't know how fired up the Panthers are going to be for this game.

But North Dakota, there's revenge on the brain for that 25-point loss earlier this season. Give me the underdog in this one.

3* NORTH DAKOTA

Wednesday free play winner is the Memphis Grizzlies over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

I'm biding my time to unload on the OKC Thunder again, but it won't be tonight as they travel to Memphis in a HUGE seeding game in the Western Conference.

OKC lost a tough game last night at home to the Denver Nuggets, who now owns the tiebreaker advantage over the Thunder with a 3-1 series win.

It's not often the Thunder lose games at home, having lost just five times there all season after last night's debacle.

But the lack of defense they continue to play isn't going to do them any favors come playoff time... home or away. They allowed Denver to have points in the paint, offensive rebounds, and very fast transition points. Again, if they don't stop some of that they are going to be knocked out earlier than expected in the post-season.

As for Memphis, they're all about defense, ranking in the top 10 in every major defensive statistical category.

The Grizzlies may have lost two of three, but those two losses came away from the FedEx Forum where they clearly struggle a lot more than they do at home.

Their last home loss was back on February 5... a rare 96-90 loss to Phoenix when the Suns shot a scorching 58% from the field. It was just one of those nights.

Take Memphis minus the point to keep the home winning streak alive.

3* MEMPHIS
