FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Not many expected Wichita State to reach the Final Four (ourselves included), but their run ends here tonight against top-seeded Louisville and we look for the Cardinals to win this one by a landslide. The Shockers held on for dear life down the stretch against Ohio State, as their 20-point lead nearly completely disappeared before the final buzzer sounded. The Buckeyes made that run by driving to the paint and crashing the boards - something Louisville does non-stop and we love that offensive matchup. Cardinals were looking like the best team in the country prior to this tournament, and have practically dominated every game from the opening tip. The freak broken leg injury last Sunday should only serve to motivate this team more and a veteran head coach means this team will not take the Shockers lightly. Great job by Wichita State to make it this far, but they are on the wrong side of a huge skill mismatch and they fall by double-digits.

The Shockers are not here by accident, they took down the likes of Gonzaga and Ohio State, both games they dominated and they also defeated a good Pitt team in a tough first round draw.  The Shockers are BETTER in these categories, 3 Point Shooting, Rebounding, Free Throws.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Both teams play good defense and they are both cvapable of running the flloor with excellent guard play.  No one is here in the Final 4 because they are not good, any team can win this thing gents, and Louisville with the distraction of Kevin Ware and all the hype surrounding them, as the best team left standing, which they are, will find the sledding tough in this one.  The Shockers are 4-0 ATS in this tourney and are 9-1 SU on neutral floor games their last 10! This is too many points, the VALUE is in the number.

Prediction: San Antonio SpursFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
When the Spurs host the Hawks Saturday night in this non-conference contest in San Antonio they will take the floor knowing they are 23-4 SU and 21-6 ATS in this series, including 14-0 SU and 13-1 ATS the last 14 games on this floor. With the Hawks flying in off a home game last night, and the Spurs a sparkling 5-0 SUATS in non-conference clashes this season when playing off a loss, there is only one way to look here tonight. We recommend a 1-unit play on San Antonio.

The Spurs took it on the chin last time out losing as OKC pounded them by a 100-88 count. Alot of pundits began to say the old Spurs had run out of gas, and needed a geratric ward! Believe me when I say, that this in itself will motivate the Spurs to bounce back tonight vs a Atlanta side, that is struggling and over rated! I know Parker and Ginabolli are down with injuries, but Im expecting talented youngsters like Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green and Tiago Splitter to step up and show us the Spurs future energy. San Antonio has an NBA-best 15-3 record following a loss.The Spurs have won eight of their last nine home games and are 33-5 at AT&T Center and have beaten the Hawks 14 straight times here in this venue. Favorite is 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings.Favorite is 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings.Hawks are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Pacers had an opportunity to clinch the Central Division crown last night but a failed fourth quarter where the scored only eight points lead them to defeat again st Oklahoma City. Washington who has won eight straight at home are 0-3 against Indiana this season as the Pacers have won the last nine meetings. John Wall missed all three losses and the Pacers will find that the Wizards are a totally different club when Wall in in the line-up. In a game that will come down to the final buzzer we will take the points.

The Mets are off a pair of home losses the past few days. However they should bounce back here nicely with Niese. The Newly appointed ace followed up his 21 innings 2 run spring training with a solid Opening day win over San Diego. Today he will oppose the Marlins. Last year he won 2 of 3 here vs Miami including an April win over today's Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco. In his starts vs the Mets Nolasco has lost his last 5 and has a 5 era against them of late. In his last 43 innings vs the Mets he has allowed 21 earned runs. Miami has lost 14 of 20 as a dog in this range And 9 of the last 12 here. Look for the Mets to bounce back in this matinee affair.

Jim Feist

Toronto at Milwaukee
Pick: Over

Toronto is on a 7-2 run over the total and is short on defense and rebounding, 28th in rebounds, 18th in points allowed giving up 99.2 ppg. The over is 5-1 in the Raptors last 6 road games. Milwaukee will attack them with their strong backcourt and an offense that is 12th in the NBA in scoring, though 21st in points allowed surrendering 100.5 ppg. The over is 4-1 in the Bucks last 5 home games and 7-2-1 over the total in the Bucks last 10 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. And when these teams meet the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. Play the Raptors/Bucks over the total.

The Cardinals have the best players in the country, the best backcourt and there is no doubt they have the best starting 5 out of the four remaining schools. With Ware being out of this game they are starting to get thin with depth and experience outside of their starters. Siva gets himself into foul trouble and finds himself sitting on the bench. That will not be good for the Cardinals if this happens today. I think the Shockers could shock the world and get into the finals, but in the end Louisville probably move on. This should be a great game and closer than Vegas thinks. Take Wichita State

Michigan has played great this year and really should have been finished off by Kansas in a game they were dominated in for 37 minutes. Give coach Boeheim a week to prepare for this game and I think Cuse clearly has the edge. This Michigan team is young and I think the Orange will bully their way to the win with superior size and muscle. This will be another great game, but I think in the end Syracuse will move on to play Louisville for all the marbles on Monday Night. Take Syracuse.

I saw a focused and powerful Reds team that has players up and down their lineup that can send the ball out of the ball park. The bottom of their lineup is producing very well this year. When you get that kind of production at home its tough for opponents to win. Look for the Reds to get another big win today. Take Cincinnati.

This is a rematch of last years NLCS won by the Giants who then went on to win the World Series. Friday Night these two teams played a great game with the Giants edging the Cardinals in a pitchers duel 1-0 behind Barry Zito. St. Louis is now 1-3 and San Francisco is 3-1, but San Francisco has scored just 9 total runs while St. Louis has scored 17. Look for that potent Cardinal offense to explode on Saturday led by Matt Holliday as they get to Vogelsong. Play St. Louis

Detroit Pistons vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
Play: Minnesota Timberwolves     

Both teams struggle putting the ball in the hoop at times, in particular Minnesota, who are hitting only 43.9% of their shots on the season, with only 2 players shooting well, is going to be tricky. Neither team handles the ball exceptionally well, but Minnesota, at home with Ricky Rubio, bringing the rock up court, I trust him more than the turnover prone PG Brandon Knight for Detroit. Both teams allow some decent looks at the rim, so the opportunity to get good looks will be there. Playing physical can jolt a team and their confidence, and I think that Wolves will play physical enough to keep the Pistons at bay. I think the W-Wolves are the better team here and win by double digits.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Astros continue their series with the Athletics on Saturday and they’ll turn to Bud Norris for his second start of the season. Norris allowed 2 runs and five hits in less than six innings pitched on opening night. Before this season, Norris held hitters to a combined .223 average in 42 starts at home. Chris Young (0-8), John Jaso (1-4) and Brandon Moss (0-3) have had their problems with the Houston starter. Bartolo Colon is making his first Major League start since August 18th which was four days before he received a 50-game suspension for testing positive for testosterone. Colon had a rough Spring giving up 17 runs and 31 hits in 20 innings of work. Who knows how long he'll be able to last in this game so he'll give way to the A's bullpen. The unit has been good, but they may have to cover multiple innings. There won’t be many times when there’s value with the Astros, but there is in this game so we recommend playing Houston on the run line on Saturday night.

Pick: MontrealFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
These teams have played three times this year: Boston won 2-1 in Montreal on February 6th. Montreal then won 4-3 in Boston on March 3rd, and 6-5 on March 27th. The Bruins are 24-8-4 this year, including 11-6-2 on the road. They're coming off a hard-fought 1-0 win over New Jersey on Thursday. Montreal is 24-8-5, including 12-4-3 at home, and is coming off a relatively easy 4-1 win over Winnipeg on Thursday. It's the final meeting of the year between these Northeast Division rivals, and Boston sits just a single game back of the Habs for the division lead. Both teams come in rested. Both teams come in with plenty of momentum. Divisional battles are always the toughest, and that's doubly so at this time of year. This game will definitely have a "playoff" atmosphere. If this was in fact a playoff game, Montreal would be favored by much more than the current line. Fantastic value, as home ice advantage at the Bell Centre is a legitimate factor at this time of year. Consider a second look at the home side in this one.

Pick: Colorado -1.5FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Not much comparison in the offensive outputs of these two thus far. For San Diego, the bats have been mostly dormant, reflected in just one homer and a very poor 6 for 35 with runners in scoring position.  For Colorado, just the opposite, as the Rocks are scoring 6 runs pg, batting .327 as a team, and have already clubbed ten homers!  Among their hot hitters are SS Troy Tulowitzki, with three homers already, and C Wilin Rosario, who has six hits in his last 12 at bats.  Colorado is excited about the chance to see recently-signed starter Jon Garland, who was effective this spring with Seattle (2.25 ERA in March for the Mariners before moving to Colorado), while the Padres are gambling with young Tyson Ross, picked up in the offseason from Oakland, where he really struggled last season (2-9 with 6.45 ERA).

Much has been made about this Syracuse defense in the tournament and for good reason. But they haven't faced any point guards who can penetrate and dish. Michigan has by far the best guard tandem the Orangemen have faced and they have they ability to provide their teammates with open looks from the perimeter. Michigan shoots the ball well from 3 point range and while we doubt they will have much success in the open floor we are convinced the Wolverines are going to put points on the board. Much has been made about the lack of success Beilein has had against Syracuse with an 0-9 record. While true he has never had the better athletes.

Washington/ Cincinnati Over 8.5: Boy the Reds really put a hurtin on the Nats last night, winning by a 15-0 count. Well I feel that this Washington offense will look to come alive and put some runs on the board vs Mike Leake who struggles in this park. Mike Leake has an 18-12 mark in this park, but with a high 4.66 ERA, which would indicate allot of high scoring games. Mike also has a 7.59 ERA in his last 4 starts vs the Nationals and in his last 5 starts vs them there has been 9+ runs scored in each. The Nats do have a solid offense and should do some damage. The Reds showed last night that they have some good offense as well, even without Ryan Ludwick. The Reds pounded out 19 hits and 15 runs in the game. They also showed that the Nats pitching staff may have problems beyond the top three. Now Detwiler did have a good year last year, but he is facing a very good Reds offense and I expect him to have some problems today, plus he does have a career 4.34 ERA on the road. Not saying 15 runs will be scored in this one again, but I do expect the Reds offense to continue to hit well, while the Nats offense puts some runs on the board as well.

This is an excellent spot to back the Washington Wizards tonight. They come in on two days' rest since a loss at Toronto, so they'll be well-rested and ready to go as they host the Indiana Pacers Saturday.

This is a great spot to fade the Pacers because they'll be playing the second of a back-to-back tonight. They're in a big letdown spot after losing to Western Conference power Oklahoma City last night.

The Wizards have been playing well over the past couple months while going under the radar in the process. They have been way undervalued, especially at home where they are 23-8-1 ATS in their last 32 games. The Wizards are 33-16-2 ATS in their last 51 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record.

This play falls into a system that is 64-31 (67.4%) ATS since 1996. It tells us to bet on home underdogs (WASHINGTON) - double revenge - 2 straight losses vs. opponent against opponent off an upset loss by 10 points or more as a home favorite. Bet the Wizards Saturday.

Felix Hernandez is clearly one of the best in the game, but he can't be trusted at U.S Cellular Field, where the Mariners are 1-6 on the money line with him on the mound. He has an ERA of 4.75 in these seven starts, and that number is up to 5.30 in the last 3 - all Seattle losses. Dylan Axelrod had a solid spring (3.66 ERA) and should benefit from the fact the Mariners have never seen him. The White Sox are 24-5 in their last 29 against Seattle. Take Chicago.

Michigan -1½ over SyracuseFREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Orange has beaten every offense they’ve seen into submission but this isn’t Marquette or California they’ll be playing. Sure, Syracuse held the potent offense of the Hoosiers to 50 points but when you watch that game, and we’ve watched it over and over, the truth is, Indiana just missed their shots. The Hoosiers were cold that day but had plenty of open looks the entire game. That’s not to take anything away from the Orange, as this teams’ defense has been nothing short of a stone wall, holding opponents in this tournament to a remarkable 39% on their 2s, and 15 % on their 3s. The Wolverines will not be as offensively inept and we’re not convinced that the Orange can keep pace.

The Wolverines have what Syracuse doesn’t and that’s an NBA talent point guard that makes smart decisions. Mitch McGary becomes more beastly with each passing game and there should be opportunities available on the offensive glass for McGary and his teammates, where the Orange defense has been statistically normal in the tournament. Syracuse may control where they put their defenders in the zone but the Orange don't control where John Beilein's team gets its shots or whether they shoot contested shots. In Syracuse's 53-51 win over Michigan in the 2010 Legends Classic, the Wolverines moved the ball well and got good shots versus the zone. Michigan didn’t have the at least four future NBA players on the floor at the time as they do now. This Wolverines team shoots 38 percent behind the arc and now has Mitch McGary dominating inside. They’ve had time to prepare for this defense and Beilein has proved in the past that he can beat it with the right personnel. This time around he has precisely that.
