The Vanderbilt QB is out for the game, which really hurts their passing game. Houston should have the edge in the running game. What I like about Houston in this game is that they are the better 3rd down team. Plus, I think this game means a little more to the Cougars. I wouldn't be surprised if this was head coach James Franklin's last game on the Vandy sideline.

Lots of storylines going in this meeting of teams that played just a few weeks ago. I expect points scored to be part of the plot here. Note the Chiefs games have seen the higher number post in five of their last six games. Kansas City has sustained some injuries on defense that certainly hasn’t helped its’ defense. The Chiefs offense averaged 33 points over that span though helped out. The Colts offense has been nice of late, finally recovering from the loss of standout WR Reggie Wayne. The Colts are averaging 26.5 points over the last four games of the season.  The Chiefs were held to just seven points in the last meeting but I don’t expect that to happen again here in the playoffs. I remember last year's "Wild Card" weekend grossed a ton of points and I woulnd't be surprised if we see some oversight from the books this first round as well.Take a second look at the “over.”

In most other sports, teams heading to the playoffs with momentum tend to fare well. That is not always the case in the NFL and we need only look back at last year’s Ravens as most recent proof. It certainly doesn’t hurt to be on a roll and the Colts have looked better the past three weeks than they have for most of the season. Conversely, the Chiefs do not look quite the same as the team that opened the season with nine straight wins before winning just two of their final seven. But things are never quite as they appear in this up-and-down league. Indy’s three-game streak included the Texans and Jaguars, a pair of teams that will have two of the first three picks in April’s NFL draft. The other win was against these same Chiefs just two weeks ago. Many are basing their choice for this one on that result — and that can be a dangerous mistake. K.C. fumbled six times in that game, losing three of them while coughing up an interception. When you are a minus-four in turnovers, you rarely win at this level. That day was very uncharacteristic of Kansas City, a team that ranked second in overall giveaways and takeaways this season. Andy Reid’s club are unlikely to commit those types of mistakes a second time. While much ado is made about the Chiefs’ strong record at Arrowhead, Kansas City actually performed better on the road this season, winning six of eight while covering seven of eight away games. K.C.’s bend but don’t break style has served them well this year, allowing just more than 19 points per game for sixth best in the league. Not to take anything away from Indianapolis as they’ve had some signature wins over teams like the Broncos, Seahawks and 49ers, but residing in what is arguably the weakest division in football has certainly aided their journey here. The Colts were the only team above .500 in the AFC South while K.C. had to do battle with the likes of the Broncos and Chargers in the tougher AFC West, with both Denver and San Diego participating in the post-season. The Colts are a bit banged up as they enter this one, including hurts to as many as three cornerbacks with Vontae Davis, Darius Butler and Greg Toler all missing practice early in the week. We also can’t ignore the coaching matchup as Andy Reid has been here several times during his tenure at Philadelphia while Chuck Pagano will be in only his second playoff game as the head man after losing 24-9 in the opening round at Baltimore last year. In the end, Andrew Luck is the better quarterback in this matchup, but most other positions go Kansas City’s way and, when being offered points under such circumstances, that’s the direction we’ll choose to follow. TAKING: CHIEFS +2½

We stress value and few games will offer more than this one. We all know about the Saints and how they are a much better home team. While there is some merit to it (New Orleans is 8-0 at home, 3-5 on the road), we are being compensated for it here. We’d say “overcompensated.” The focus on New Orleans’ road play has overshadowed Philadelphia’s home mark. The Eagles were just .500 as hosts this year with a 4-4 mark. That’s in a division that features the Cowboys, Giants and Redskins, who Philly hosted three times. In addition, Philadelphia has covered just once in four tries this season when facing a team with a winning record (that was against the defenceless Bears a couple of weeks back). The Saints not only have an above-.500 record, they have a superior mark to their hosts on this day. Even so, we get to take some points while we get a Super Bowl-winning coach, a top-five quarterback, a stronger defence and a team with playoff experience. Granted, the Eagles have some stars on its roster. WR DeSean Jackson can be a game changer, QB Nick Foles has played quite well with 27 touchdowns to only two interceptions and RB LeSean McCoy is an explosive back that led the league in rushing this season. However, it should be noted that in the past 13 years, there has only been one running back who was tops in rushing and won the Super Bowl as Terrell Davis accomplished the feat with the Broncos in the late ’90s. Other than McCoy, where are the Eagles stronger? It’s not even close on defence, where Rob Ryan came over after being dismissed from Dallas (how funny is that?) and transformed one of the worst defences in football history to a formidable and sound unit that ranks fourth overall this season. On the flip side, the Eagles rank 29th overall while earning a 32nd classification against the pass. This Philly unit is giving up an abundant 289 yards per game through the air compared to the Saints’ 194 yards. It almost doesn’t seem fair that we are offered any points at all here as Drew Brees will be afforded the opportunity to attack this inept pass defence with his arsenal of receivers, including TE Jimmy Graham, who led the league with 16 touchdown receptions. Anyone that’s ever invested knows that blue-chip stocks are the safer way to go. The Saints are the blue-chip team in this matchup. They are one of the most balanced teams in the league as they can beat you on both sides of the ball. The Eagles are a true wild card, barely slipping into the playoffs by putting up pedestrian numbers against Dallas’ incompetent defence last week. The choice here is easy. TAKING: SAINTS +2½

Tony George

New Orleans +2.5

Whole world loves Philly at home, and New Orleans cannot win on the road. Yeah yeah yeah, heard it all week, and so did Sean Peyton and Drew Brees and company! The Saints have the better QB and vastly better defense, in the post season. Last time I checked that means something in the Playoffs, regardless of recent trends of just shoot em up and run wild. I wish I could get this at 3 but am going for the Saints to win outright. Eagle QB Foles a good story but beating Dallas just to get here is not impressive, Dallas sucks and had a backup QB who looked good against this defense last week.

Yes outdoors, yes away from the Big Easy, but the Saints are well coached by a veteran coach and have one for the best QB’s in the biz here, and the Eagles have no answer for Graham in their secondary. With a young defense and the potential of QB Brees to light them up, rest assured the moment could get too big for them fast. Also bear in mind the Saints coasted to a home win last week, and Philly went balls out in a last second win on the road, and an emotional one as well. Also one thing to consider is the fact the NFC East was flat out weak this year, New Orleans battle tested and better, the road / home issue in my opinion gets reversed this week

76ers vs. Portland
Play: Over 221

The long road trip continues for Philly, a team that loves to run, gun and score but is a joke on defense, last in the NBA allowing 111.2 ppg. The over is 7-2 in 76ers last 9 games playing on one days rest. That defense (or lack of it) will be torched by this Portland team, one leading the NBA in scoring with 108.3 ppg. Portland prefers to run, allowing 102.6 ppg, so look for both teams to play all out on offense and not give a hoot about defense. The over is 27-8 in Trail Blazers last 35 home games. While the 76ers have scored 109.8 points per game in their last six, they're allowing a league-high 111.2 on the season -- including 120 over the last seven. Philly is on a 5-2-1 run over the total and the over is 3-2-1 in 76ers last 6 road games. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these teams and this will be all about going uptempo. Play the 76ers/Blazers over the total.

I really think that both of these road teams will win these two games, but I'm gong to tease both of them up over the magic number of seven. Kansas City laid an egg when they Colts made their visit to Arrowhead Stadium a couple of weeks ago, but I like them to bounce back here. The Colts have had some huge wins this season as an underdog, but they have also lost to teams that they were favored to beat and I will had them here as a playoff game favorite. Indy doesn't have much of a running game and I expect the Kansas City defense to take away the only real breakaway threat that they have in wide receiver TY Hilton. In the second Saturday game everyone knows that the Saints are a different team on the road but I like them to win here. Philadelphia has had a very successful season under new head coach Chip Kelly, but they have also had the luck of the draw facing many teams that didn't have a healthy starting quarterback. Drew Brees should have a big day against this Eagles defense that simply doesn't have an answer for Jimmy Graham. I like the experience of the former Super Bowl champs against a young Eagles team with a rookie quarterback .

Following a 3-game ATS win streak that featured outright wins over both the Heat & Rockets, I was interested to see how the Kings would perform on a five-game homestand that will likely see them favored four times (Portland being the sure exception). I got my answer Thursday when they lost outright to Philadelphia.....
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Sacramento was a nine-point favorite over the 76ers. It was the most points they've been favored in any game this year and by not covering, they are now 0-7 ATS as chalk.  They've lost five of those games outright, including all three times they have been caught laying four or more points. As I've mentioned previously, the Kings rough start is made all the more frustrating by the fact that they've played 18 of their 31 games at home. So far, they are just 6-12 SU at Sleep Train Arena, so there just isn't much of a homecourt edge here.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Charlotte just got annihilated, losing by 30 in Portland Thursday night.  They were playing w/out rest having lost by 27 to the Clippers on the road New Year's Day. This has not been a good road trip at all for the soon to be rechristened Hornets as they have lost four in a row, but note that before running into the Clips and Blazers, the team's previous six losses had come by a combined 20 points w/ none coming by more than five! They also have already beaten Sacramento this year, doing so at home back on December 17th, 95-87 as slight one-point favorites.  The points are a premium here.

INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
There’s a natural tendency, and I believe a good one, to look for ways to play games one teams one enjoys regular success with. When you’re in that zone with a particular squad, the spots almost seem to jump off the page. That’s the way it’s been for me this season with Oakland. I’ve won every play I’ve made either on or against them so far, and I’m getting involved with the Grizzlies again tonight.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
Oakland is off a loss at Wright State and that was a good result for me as I liked the Raiders. But this appears to be a spot where the Grizzlies should get themselves a win. In this case though, it’s more a play against the opponent than anything else.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
Valparaiso sits at 9-7 presently, but if the Crusaders cannot fix what is a major problem with ball security, they’re not going to do much damage in even a watered down Horizon Conference. Valpo is turning it over at an alarming rate, and to make matters worse, they aren’t generating many takeaways.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
The numbers on the road for the Crusaders are staggering. They’ve played six true away games so far and are a mind numbing -48 turnovers in those contests. That’s a huge red flag to me now that we’re into league play, and if Valparaiso cannot rectify this problem, it’s almost inevitable that they’re going to be in trouble on a regular basis.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
Oakland is having a rough campaign to date. The Grizzlies started the season 0-7 against a superior array of opponents. The team also had some off the court issues, and I’m not really sold on them despite some recent improvement. The loss at Wright State doesn’t bother me, as that figured as a tough matchup. This one should be more to their liking.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
Oakland is 5-0 at home, they’ve got Duke Mondy back in the lineup and Travis Bader is about as good as it gets as a rule shooting the long ball on his home court. It’s a big game for the Grizzlies as they seek to avoid the 0-2 league start. I like their chances at the reasonable price, so Oakland minus the points is the choice.

Jimmy Boyd

Portland State +13

This is way too many points for two teams that are very evenly matched. Portland State is averaging 73.5 points per game, while Weber State is averaging an even 73 points per game. The Vikings come into this matchup with a 5-5 record, while the Wildcats have a 4-5 record. I don’t think home court advantage is enough for Weber State to win this game by a large double-digit margin. The Vikings have been a much better team statistically than their record would indicate. They are +2 in rebounding margin, and have been a great ball control team averaging just 12 turnovers per game.

This matchup fits into two very profitable systems in favor of Portland State. First, you should play against favorites of 10 to 19.5 points like Weber State when they are coming off a home win where they failed to cover the spread as a favorite, when they have won 40 to 49 percent of their games on the season. This system is 30-9 (77%) against the spread. The second system is to play on underdogs of 10 to 19.5 points like Portland State when they are shooting 42.5 to 45 percent against a team allowing a shooting percentage of 40 to 42.5 percent when coming off a game allowing a shooting percentage of 55 percent in their previous game. This system is 68-28 (71%) against the spread.

The UNLV Rebels are really starting to play good basketball over the last couple weeks. A team that was a big disappointment earlier this year has started to show their promise. They gave Arizona a really tough game last month and that catapulted them to a very nice run. Air Force is a mess this year. The Falcons don't have even close to enough firepower to hang around here. UNLV runs them right out of the gym. Take UNLV.

Philadelphia 76ers +13

The Portland Trail Blazers are way overvalued right now due to their 26-7 start. I'll gladly face them tonight as a massive favorite over the Philadelphia 76ers, who are playing their best basketball of the season coming in. The Blazers are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall.

Indeed, the 76ers have won three straight games, all on the road as an underdog. They beat the Lakers (111-104) as a 7-point dog, the Nuggets (114-102) as a 9-point dog, and the Kings (113-104) as a 9-point dog.

Philadelphia is finally healthy with the return of Michael Carter-Williams (17.2 ppg, 7.3 apg, 5.6 rpg, 3.0 spg). It will be seeking revenge from an ugly 105-139 loss to the Trail Blazers back on December 14 in their first meeting of the season. This was a 7-point game at the half before turning ugly after intermission. Carter-Williams did not play in that game.

Plays against home favorites of 10 or more points (PORTLAND) - explosive offensive team - scoring 103+ points/game on the season against opponent after scoring 100 points or more 4 straight games are 26-5 (83.9%) ATS since 1996. The Blazers are 1-10 ATS after a game where their opponent was called for 13 or less fouls over the last two seasons. Bet the 76ers Saturday.

New Orleans Saints vs. Philadelphia Eagles    
Play: Philadelphia Eagles -2

On a frigid day in the city of Brotherly Love, the New Orleans home/road dichotomy figures to be magnified. Playing in the cozy confines of their home dome, New Orleans is on a run of 17-0 SU, 16-0-1 ATS with the brain trust of Payton and QB Brees. They polished off the perfect season there last week, with a 42-17 victory over Tampa Bay. On the road it’s a different story, where New Orleans is 3-5 SU, 1-7 ATS. First year Philly HC Kelly never gave up faith in his offense or defensive game plans. This is the best running team in football at 161/5.2 on an average of 31 carries per game. With New Orleans allowing 4.6 YPR, they figure to have success in this matchup. The last half of the season resulted in a record of 7-1 SU, 5-2 ATS for the Eagles, in which they covered by a net 73 points with a net +13 TO margin. The Saints are gradually becoming known for their improved defense (19/307) under DC Ryan. But the Eagles’ stop unit improved dramatically as well. In fact, 10/11 of their last games have seen Philly hold the opposition to 22 or fewer points. And that once dreaded home field, on which the Eagles lost 13 straight times, evolved into a strength down the stretch with a record of 4-0 SU, 3-0-1 ATS. Better running game and home field keys this victory.

The under will hit in this game as both defenses will keep it low. They played once this year and kept it at 30! Now think when everything is on the line, the Defense will make Luck and Smith work for it. The under has cashed in 5 of the last 6 between these 2 teams!The colts have cashed 4 of their last 5 games with the under!

The Missouri Valley Conference has been 1 of my favorite Conference's in College Ball for the last decade. Why ? Because You get quality played Basketball, good effort, without the media darlings Rick Pitino, John Calipari crap. Line looks cheap, Indiana St returns a bunch of starters that can play including Jake Odum 1 of the best Point Guards in NCAAB. Meanwhile Evansville's best player & scorer Colt Ryan graduated last Yr and their Season so far has been a struggle.

Marquette was smoked at Creighton last out losing by double digits and shooting a season low 35% from the field. The Golden Eagles have responded big, covering 13 straight after losing as a road dog. Marquette is 9-1 straight up and ats off a conference loss and has won 13 of 14 at home vs Depaul. They are 6-1 and winning by an average 20 points her. Depaul has struggled vs winning teams and has lost 36 of the last 47 vs teams over .500. The Demons have shot under 375 in the past 2 games and are in the wrong place at the wrong time here against Marquette. Lay the Points with the Golden Eagles.
