ALABAMA -17 over Oklahoma

This line has exploded as Alabama backers have driven it from 14 to 17 over the last two days. The key question to this game is which Alabama team shows up? The team off a gut-wrenching loss to bitter rival Auburn who is disappointed that they are not playing in the National Championship Game and mail it in as they did in a similar situation in 2008 after losing to Florida in the SEC Championship Game, the Crimson Tide went to the Sugar Bowl and got thumped 31-17 by Utah. But we don't envision that happening again as the Tide simply has too much talent for an Oklahoma squad that got smashed the last time they were a 17 point underdog 41-12 at Baylor. Roll Tide!

Warriors +5

Defending league champion Miami is 14-2 overall so far this season in front of the home fans in South Beach (114 points per game average last five home games), yet they opened offshore as a relatively small four-point favorite which to me spoke volumes.  One of the reasons for the low spot is that Golden State pulled off an OUTRIGHT upset in their most recent visit to Miami and the Warriors as a team this evening enter on a 6-0 WINNING tear.  The key to this selection surrounds INJURY news involving Miami as three players including Dwayne Wade (back spasms) are question marks.  Last time out Miami guard Norris Cole slammed his face on the hardwood in a fall, while forward Chris Anderson has not played in the past four games due to back problems.  The heat are coming off a 4-game road swing out west and my research indicates they have always struggled in their initial game back home.  In the past two years when off three consecutive games on the highway, Miami is a disastrous 0-9 ATS/HOME
