Detroit Pistons vs. New York Knicks    
Play: New York Knicks -3

The Knicks played well out West and are 10-0 to the spread at home the last few years off road game where they covered by 10 or more points, like they did in their upset win in Dallas. For our system we note that rested home favorites of -4.5 or less with a total that is 190 or higher that are off a spread win by 14+ points are cashing nearly 90% long term winning by 10 points points per game. The Knicks have revenge for a 92-86 loss in Detroit. The Pistons are 1-5 ats on the road off a 21 point or more ats loss at home and have not had much success here of late going 0-8 straight up and ats. Look for the Knicks to get the win and cover.

Brandon Shively

Baylor vs. Iowa State    
Play: Iowa State -7

Iowa State is the real deal and this game will be a blowout. Iowa State will win this game by 14 or more points. For beginners, they have a much better coach. HC Drew for Baylor does not know how to utilize the talent he has. HC Hoiberg for Iowa State knows exactly how to get the most bang for his buck with his players which is evident by back-to-back 23 win seasons and a 13-0 start to this season. Sure, Baylor has only one loss on the year , a 74-67 loss to Syracuse, but this is their first true road game of the season and it will be a tough one, I CAN GUARANTEE. Baylor has played 4 cupcake teams after beating Kentucky over a month ago. I say this because I feel like they will not be ready for Iowa State. They will be a bit on the rusty side from playing these bottom-tier teams.

For Iowa State, it all starts at the point guard position with Marshall transfer DeAndre Kane. The kid is a baller and a matchup nightmare. At 6'4", he can post up on the block when he wants. He can shoot the jumper and has also recently found the stroke in his 3 point shot. Then on top of that, he is dishing the rock averaging 6 assist a game with a 2.63 assist:turnover ratio. Iowa State is strapped with depth. They have two legit scorers in the paint with Ejim and Niang. These guys can also step outside and knock down the perimeter shot. The Cylcones whole team can shoot the 3 ball as their top 7 scorers are all shooting 34% or better from the 3 point line. This is a team that lives and dies by the 3, and I'm betting that they LIVE by it tonight.

For Baylor, they do not have the guards to keep up with Baylor. Kenny Cherry is too small at 5'11" and he will get exposed by Kane. Baylor has one sharpshooter and that is Brady Heslip but Heslip is too slow to play defense with the quicker guards of Iowa State and he will not be on the floor as much as HC Drew would like. If he leaves Heslip on the court which will be a mistake , he will get burnt by Iowa State.

In closing, this is a series that has been dominated by Iowa State which just further strengthens my decision. l.ook for Iowa State to win this game comfortably. I am expecting a final score in the 87-71 range.

Head-to-Head Trends:
Home team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Baylor is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings
Baylor is 0-7 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Iowa State.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks    
Play: Dallas Mavericks -11

The LA Lakers prefer to run, but this team has been devastated and depleted by injuries of late. Banged-up Los Angeles did it with its 18th starting five and sixth different starting point guard as coach Mike D'Antoni gave Kendall Marshall his first nod since he was signed from the D-League on Dec. 20. The injury report also includes Kobe Bryant (knee), Steve Nash (back), Steve Blake (elbow) and Xavier Henry (knee). The Lakers are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games playing on one days rest. They come off an embarrassing home loss to Denver, 137-115! The Lakers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. Dallas is also an uptempo team, but healthier, 9th in the NBA in points scored, 6th in assists. Dallas is off an embarrassing loss of its own, at home to the Knicks, but they are a better bounce back team, 35-17 ATS in their last 52 games following a loss.

Nobody has beat the Buckeyes yet this year, yet Ohio State will be an underdog in Michigan versus the #5 ranked Spartans. Michigan State has already been upset at home once this season, losing to the unranked Tar Heels on December 4.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
These teams met three times in 2013, and Ohio State won two of those three games outright, and covered the spread in all three. The Spartans did manage to sneak past OSU at home by a score of 59-56 last January, but they are being asked to cover a much larger spread in tonight's contest.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
This is only the Spartans second game this season against a Top 25 team, and they won their last such contest in close game versus Kentucky, by a score of 78-74. Once again, the margin of victory is less than the number they are asked to cover tonight.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
The writing is on the wall, this seems to be destined to be another close game. The last three times Ohio State visited East Lansing, they played close games decided by an average margin of just three points, and they won one of those games outright.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
The value lies on a play on the Buckeyes getting points in Michigan tonight.

The 76'ers have very quietly won 4 of the last 5 games all as 7+-point underdogs. Somehow they we're able to notch a victory at the Rose Garden when they defeated Portland 101-99. Surprisingly all 4 of these wins have come on the road. With the Cavs anticipating the return of injured point guard Kyrie Irving, it would be smart to wait until he is officially in the lineup and let the point spread rise a point or two before taking the points.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Good job by 14th-year HC Kevin Stallings, leading Vanderbilt to an early 8-4 SU mark despite entering the current campaign with zero returning starters from last season’s 16-17 squad. And even though the Commodores are 0-2 SU in true road games so far (losses to Butler and Texas), we’ll give Vandy a look behind Stallings’ profitable 19-8-1 ATS mark as a conference road underdog with revenge versus a .750 or less opponent. That stat fits hand-in-glove with Bama HC Anthony Grant’s 6-13 SUATS troubles either as a dog or a favorite of 5 or fewer points versus SEC revengers (keep a close watch this line). Recent series history also gives a ‘thumbs down’ to the Tide as they’re a dismal 4-13-1 ATS as chalk, and visiting Vanderbilt owns a super 4-1 SU and 5-0 ATS record as an underdog with revenge. We don’t expect much of a crowd on hand as most die-hard Alabama fans will have stayed up late the night before to curse hated Auburn in the BCS National Championship football game. The Tide has played well at Coleman Coliseum prior to today’s conference opener but the fact is they’re a pitiful 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games versus avenging SEC foes. With Alabama on a weak 1-4 SU and 1-3 ATS run prior to Saturday’s game with Northeastern, Stallings and his Commies get the call here. Roll over, Tide, roll over. We recommend a 1-unit play on Vanderbilt.

The Toronto Maple Leafs should be in a foul mood after being hammered on home ice in a 7-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday. That game was nationally televised in Canada, adding further embarrassment to the Leafs.
I PITY YOUR SAD FUCKING LIFE VIKESFAG THE C&P QUEEN OF THE INTERNET
They will host the New York Islanders at the Air Canada Center tonight, and the Isles are coming off a 7-3 win over Dallas last night.
I PITY YOUR SAD FUCKING LIFE VIKESFAG THE C&P QUEEN OF THE INTERNET
Here are my keys to the game:FOR FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
I PITY YOUR SAD FUCKING LIFE VIKESFAG THE C&P QUEEN OF THE INTERNET
1: Situational/Motivational - The Isles win last night put an end to a nine game home losing streak, but getting up for a game on the road just 24 hours later might not be easy for a team that likely isn't going to the post-season. While this is a let down spot for the Isles, this is a big game for the Leafs, who are in need of a serious gut check after Saturday's loss. They know they can't afford another poor effort tonight, as it would cause a media circus under the microscope in Toronto.
I PITY YOUR SAD FUCKING LIFE VIKESFAG THE C&P QUEEN OF THE INTERNET
2: Goaltending - Evgeni Nabokov went out with an injury in the first period of last night's game, and Kevin Poulin stepped in to play well for 47 minutes, allowing two goals on 15 shots. The 23 year old has not been sharp this season though, and had allowed 10 goals over his last two starts.
I PITY YOUR SAD FUCKING LIFE VIKESFAG THE C&P QUEEN OF THE INTERNET
3: X-Factor - The Leafs will have an edge in special teams play, as the Isles are dreadful both on the power-play as well as killing penalties. Toronto hasn't had any trouble lighting the lamp with the man advantage, converting on 21% of their chances.

I love the spot here for TCU. Kansas State is riding a nine game winning streak and comes into this game ranked in the top 25 for the first time this season after a big upset win over #6 ranked Oklahoma State on Saturday. Now they are laying points here at TCU prior to a visit to Lawrence on Saturday to face their in state rival the #18 ranked Jayhawks. This is a huge look ahead spot for the Wildcats and it is also their first true road game of the season. The Horned Frogs are a dangerous team lead by Kyan Anderson, who leadsTCU in scoring both scoring and assists per game. Anderson had a big game in the last meeting between these teams last season in Manhattan with a game high 29 points on 10 for 15 shooting from the field. I look for this one to be close, take the points.

PLAY: INDIANA PACERS -7.5FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
When the numbers jump off the page and the situation is also favorable, I’ve certainly got no problem playing a favorite in the NBA. That’s the case tonight as Indiana plays host to Toronto.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
First, the situation. It’s a quick revenge scenario for the Pacers. Their most recent loss was at Toronto. The Pacers have won a couple subsequently, and now will have the revenge motive working for the first time this season. That should insure the desired focus this evening.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
Check out these numbers as well. How’s 21-2 straight up and 19-4 ATS grab you? That’s the chart for Indiana this season when playing with rest. Their difficulties have come in the second of back to back games. This makes some sense as the Pacers lose a little on defense when they’re not as fresh. But with a little rest tossed in, they’re tough as nails.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
I think Indiana has done enough to prove they’re one of the elite teams in the NBA. Personally, my strongest opinions in this league are on the best teams when they’re in spots where they’re most likely to put forth their best effort. I see this as one of those spots for Indiana, so I’m laying the points with the Pacers tonight.

New Jersey comes into this matchup off a bad loss in Buffalo the other night.  It was their second straight defeat after falling 5-3 in Chicago on Friday. However, if there was one Eastern Conference team currently on the outside of the playoff picture that I'd pick to make a run, it would be this one.  The Devils' typically reliable penalty killing unit failed them Sunday against the Sabres, giving up two power play goals to a team that previously had gone just 1 for 22 with the man advantage.

Fortunately for tonight, they draw a Flyers team that has lost 8 of 9 this season when playing with exactly two days of rest.  Philadelphia has tied Washington for second place in the Metropolitan Division, but remains only four points ahead of the Devils despite going just 7-2-1 their last 10 games overall. Before embarking on this current six-game road trip, which has brought surprisingly good results, the Flyers had not been a good road team.  They had in fact lost five in a row away from the City of Brotherly Love.

The road team has won in shutout fashion in the two previous meetings this season between these division rivals.  However, tonight I feel the value resides w/ the home team.

Denver Nuggets -7½

The Nuggets have turned things around recently winning their last two games, and scoring over 110 points in both. They averaged 53.6 percent from the field in those games, and made 21 of their 51 three point attempts. They face a Celtics team tonight that has lost seven of their last eight, and Boston is showing no signs up life after getting blown out by 23 points in their last outing. Denver will play host in this matchup, and that is not a good sign for the Celtics who have a 5-11 record on the road this season.

Boston is 8-20 against the spread when playing in a road game and coming off two or more consecutive losses. They are up against a Denver team that is 18-8 against the spread when playing at home after two consecutive games as a favorite. After the Nuggets skid in the second half of December they now have a losing record. They will easily be one of the best teams with a losing record that Boston has faced, and the Celtics are just 7-18 against the spread over the last two seasons when playing a team with a losing record.

Golden State Warriors vs. Milwaukee Bucks    
Play: Golden State Warriors -9

The Golden State Warriors can make it 10 straight wins tonight if they can beat the Milwaukee Bucks.

Coming off a ninth straight win, it's safe to say the Warriors have finally turned the corner and are finally starting to win games consistently. On Sunday, Klay Thompson scored a game-high 26 points and David Lee scored 21 in the Warriors' latest win over the Wizards. Stephen Curry added just 14 points on five of 17 shooting, but the Warriors got a big lift from Andrew Bogut who scored 15 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks in just 26 minutes and is finally staying healthy enough to make these performances more regular. Golden State is now 23-13 overall and 12-9 on the road where they've won their last five.

Meanwhile, the Bucks have lost 10 of their last 12 and are coming off a 116-100 beating thanks to Goran Dragic and the Suns. Brandon Knight led the scoring with 25 points and eight assists while OJ Mayo added 20 points off the bench, but the Bucks committed an unforgivable 25 turnovers to the Suns which was the difference. Milwaukee are now 7-26 on the season overall and 4-14 on the road.

In ATS trends, the Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 against the Eastern Conference, while the Bucks are 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games following a loss of more than 10 points and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.

Head to head, the Warriors are 0-5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall but they are 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Milwaukee.

The Bucks are in a world of hurt and haven't shown me enough to suggest that this won't be another double digit loss at home against a red-hot Warriors outfit looking for a tenth straight win.

Philadelphia rolls into New Jersey looking to cap off what has already been a successful road trip at 4-1. The team however isn’t satisfied and appears focused to finish the job.  "So far so good, but we have one more game on this trip," said Wayne Simmonds. "We can't be satisfied. We can't relax here at all. We got to make sure we're ready for that game in New Jersey."

I took a “buy low” stance with the Flyers following their dreadful 1-7 start.  It was only a matter of time before this team got their legs under them and starting scoring some goals.  New head coach Craig Berube was partly responsible for that change in mentality and a 20-10-4 turnaround that has seen them climb back up the Eastern standings and into playoff contention as we cross the halfway point of the season.

Tonight is a case of two teams headed in different directions. New Jersey has desperately struggled to score goals all season and worse yet their shots per game total is the worst in the NHL at 25.3.  The lack of scoring chances the Devils get on a nightly basis really hampers their ability to win the close games as they’ve gone 10-16 in one goal contests this year.  This will more than likely be a low scoring affair tonight and I just can’t help but think Philadelphia will have the edge mentally.  They continue to ride high on confidence and I fully expect the Flyer offense will get their chances to bury opportunities tonight.  This has all the makings of a 2-1 or 3-1 Philadelphia victory.

Pick: Oklahoma City ThunderFOR FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The Thunder lost All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook (21.3-6.0-7.0) to an injury on Christmas Day but have won FOUR of six without him. OKC averages 106.0 PPG on the season (3rd-best) and after scoring just 89 points in its first game without Westbrook, has averaged 107.6 PPG the last five, THREE times scoring 115 points or more.

Naturally, Durant (29.0-8.3-4.9) continues to lead the way with Ibaka (14.1-8.7) the team's second-best scorer. However, both Jackson (12.8) and Lamb (10.0) are scoring a few points more per game with Westbrook sidelined, as Jackson is averaging 14.0 PPG and Lamb 12.7 these last six.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The Jazz check in at 11-25, the West's worst record. Once a dominant home team, Utah is only 6-10 SU at home this season, going 6-9-1 ATS. Hayward (16.5-5.3-4.8) is now the team-leader, with Favors (13.5-9.0) having a carer seaseon at power forward and rookie PG Trey Burke (13.3-3.2-5.2 ) doing a nice job.

However, OKC comes in having won EIGHT straight on the road (7-1 ATS) and is 8-3 ATS as a road favorite on the season. Lay the points.

Duke is out of the Top 10 for the first time since 2007 and that will undoubtedly have the team and the Cameron Crazies riled up tonight. The Dukies are 14-2 over the L16 of the series winning the last five by a combined 68 points. GTech is 1-5 vs the Top 100 with all five losses coming by double-digits. It's going to be a long night tonight for the Yellow Jackets.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers    
Play: Philadelphia 76ers +4½

On Tuesday, Play On underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points like Philadelphia, scoring 103 or more points a game on the season, against opponent (Cleveland) after a combined score of 175 points or less. The reasoning on this free play is the higher scoring team is likely to keep scoring, while the opponent has historically had a carryover when it comes to putting the ball in the basket. In the last five years the pooch is 27-8 ATS, 77.1 percent and final scores have been less than a point differential.

I PITY YOUR SAD FUCKING LIFE VIKESFAG THE C&P QUEEN OF THE INTERNET
Regulation only. There usually isn’t much value in spotting a half puck on the road but in this case there is plenty. The Sabres stock is up after they defeated the Devils on Saturday for their fifth straight win at home. Give Buffalo credit for grinding out that win and for its current home winning streak but it’s all about to end. You see, Buffalo ran into some weak goaltending in many of those games while creating very few scoring chances. Prior to defeating New Jersey, the Sabres scored four times on 20 shots against Niklas Backstrom and the Wild in a 4-1 win. Also during their streak, Buffalo defeated Washington 2-1 while being outshot 50-17. In a 4-2 win over Boston, again the Sabres were outshot 37-23. Buffalo is a team that is averaging the second fewest shots on net per game in the league. Over the past month, they have been the league’s worst in that department, averaging a mere 23 shots on net per game. On the rack for the Sabres is Tyler Mylers, Cody Hodgson, Drew Stafford and Ville Leino among others. The Sabres can’t keep winning when they keep producing so few scoring opportunities.
I PITY YOUR SAD FUCKING LIFE VIKESFAG THE C&P QUEEN OF THE INTERNET
Carolina is without Eric Staal tonight and that only adds to the Hurricanes appeal because as a result of him being out, they are undervalued. Unlike the Sabres, who rely heavily on a couple of players to produce, the ‘Canes are loaded up front with guys who can put the puck in the net. Carolina has reeled off four wins in a row while scoring 14 times over that span. They have also picked up points in seven of their past 10 games and if they had received better goaltending from Cam Ward, they would have picked up more. That won’t be a problem tonight because the NHL’s most underrated goaltending duo of Justin Peters or Anton Khudobin will be in net. Since being called up, Khudobin is 5-0 with a .940 save percentage while Peters never has a bad game and has a save % of .924. The ‘Canes are on a roll and they figure to play even harder tonight with their captain out of the lineup.

Regulation only. The Jets are a much better team at home and although they are only two games above .500 at the MTS Center, they have played a lot of those games against tough teams from the West. They have won many of those and have just missed in many others. This is a talented Jets’ team that plays hard every time they take the ice. However, this isn’t about Winnipeg as much as it is about fading the Lightning. 
I PITY YOUR SAD FUCKING LIFE VIKESFAG THE C&P QUEEN OF THE INTERNET
Goaltending this year has been the biggest factor in determining the outcome of games more so than any other year in a very long time. Teams with great goaltending are winning games and teams without it are always at risk of losing. Ben Bishop has been nothing short of brilliant this entire season. He’s kept the Lightning in so many games, he’s won games on his own and when his team gets a lead, he usually holds it. Bishop is 22-5 with a 1.86 GAA to go along with a save % of .935. Unfortunately for the Bolts, Bishop is out with an upper body injury. That leaves Predators castoff Anders Lindback in net. Lindback is 3-8 with a GAA of 3.21 and his save percentage is a disturbing .883. On the road this season, Lindback is 1-6 with a save percentage of .876. If goaltenders didn’t need rest, Lindback would have played zero games this season. Need we say more?
