Los Angeles Lakers at Minnesota Timberwolves
Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves

LA loves to run, but the defense is awful, 29th in points allowed in the NBA, 18th in the league in field goal shooting defense. They played at home the last game against Charlotte and lost 110-100. Charlotte shot 52.3 percent from the field! Still missing Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry because of injuries, the Lakers lost for the 18th time in 21 games and are only a half-game ahead of last-place Sacramento in the Western Conference standings. The Lakers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a spread loss, 3-13 ATS in their last 16 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game. Minnesota almost always scores 100 points, No. 2 in the NBA in scoring with 105.9 ppg. They scored 113 the last game but gave up 120 at Atlanta, so coming home will help with a chip on their shoulder. While LA has nothing to play for, Minnesota is fighting Dallas and Memphis for the last playoff spot. The Timberwolves are 26-10-1 ATS in their last 37 games following a loss, and 15-5-1 ATS against a team with a winning percentage below .400. Look for another big bounce back effort by the home team, running right at the defenseless and banged up Lakers. Play the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Save for a loss to the rival Habs on Thursday, the Bruins have really been rolling lately. I like them tonight.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The same cannot be said for Vancouver's recent fortunes as the Canucks have dropped four straight and five of the last six.  The latest loss came last night in Detroit when they were shut out 2-0.  On the bright side, it was the first time in five games they didn't allow at least four goals.  It was the return of both coach John Tortorella and captain Henrik Sedin.  It obviously didn't matter. They were 0 for 5 on the power play, continuing an absolutely dreadful stretch that has seen them go 3 for 46 w/ the man advatage the last 13 games.  They have won just four of those games overall, two of those coming in extra time, while eight of the nine losses have occurred in regulation.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Meanwhile, the B's have won five of six.  After an incredible streak that saw them score six goals in three consecutive games, they suffered their lone loss during this stretch Thursday vs. Montreal.  But they bounced back Saturday w/ a 4-0 shutout of lowly Edmonton.  They outshot the Oilers 41-22. With these teams heading in opposite directions, take the home favorite.

Toronto vs. Florida
Pick: Toronto
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The Toronto Maple Leafs have won three in a row, and they currently sit in the 4th spot in the East, 17 points ahead of the 15th place Florida Panthers. Florida is mired in a three game losing streak, and when the Panthers host the Leafs on Tuesday, we are seeing Toronto near a pickem.

Before I make the decision to place a wager, there are numerous factors that I will take into careful consideration. While I won't go into great detail about all my handicapping methods, I will share a few of the key stats and trends for this contest:
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
1: Previous History - The Leafs have won 4-of-5 meetings with the Panthers since 2012, and both meetings in Florida. The Panthers have won more games on the road this season than they have on home ice.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
2: Special Teams - Florida's power-play is so bad (8% conversion rate) if given the opportunity, they would have to consider declining all penalties. The Leafs boast one of the most potent power-plays in the NHL, ranking 4th, clicking at better than 22%.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
3: X-Factor - Phil Kessel is second in the NHL in scoring with 30 goals, and he netted a hat trick his last time out. He's been on top form now for the past month, with 24 points in his last 14 games.

Indiana vs. Atlanta
Pick: Atlanta
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Indiana is coming off a 98-79 win over Orlando last night but has always struggled in Atlanta, dropping 12 straight to the Hawks on their home floor; suffice it to say, I believe this trend continues this evening.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The last time the Pacers visited Atlanta was on January 8th and despite 28 points from Paul George, they would go on to lose 97-87.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Atlanta will be highly motivated to keep the win streak alive and comes into this game with plenty of confidence and momentum, seeking its sixth win in its last eight games. Most recently the Hawks man-handled the Wolves 120-113 on Saturday, four players scoring at least 19 points.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The Hawks are averaging a whopping 111 points during their last eight games with five players scoring double-digit efforts in each of the past four.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Note that Indiana has interestingly struggled in this spot of late, just 2-3 ATS in its last five vs. poor defensive teams which allow 99 plus points per contest.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
And note that Atlanta is a perfect 4-0 ATS this year as a home dog of 3 points or less and 11-4 ATS vs. teams with winning records.

Consider a second look at the home side in this one.

Pick: KansasFOR FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Each team are coming off a Saturday game that was significant but in a different way. The Jayhawks are a strong team but got blitzed in Texas while the Bears where playing poorly but got a signature win on the road over Oklahoma State. I am playing on Kansas to bounce back and get a good win on the road here. Kansas duo of freshmen stars in Joel Embid and Andrew Wiggins struggled against the length of some of the Texas defenders but this Baylor team has no one that can matchup with either guys as the demonstrated in the 78-68 win for Kansas at home over Baylor back just few weeks ago. Kansas is 8-4 ATS the last three seasons when giving up 80 points or more in the previous game. Baylor is 2-4 ATS in home lined games and 0-4 ATS on Tuesday nights. Baylor is also just 4-7 ATS versus teams with winning records.  Baylor is looking to beat ranked teams back-to-back here and I expect we don’t see Kansas get caught off guard and get a relatively easy win. Kansas is 7-1 SU and 5-2 ATS versus conference opponents while Baylor is just 2-5 SU and ATS versus conference opponents. Consider laying the points in this situation.

Both these teams are playing very well recently. The Rangers have the venue and schedule in their favor though and I feel that they’re favored for good reason.
The Rangers, who have won three straight and nine of their last 12, come in well-rested. They last played on 1/31. They’ve outscored opponents by a 13-5 margin, during their 3-game winning streak.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
On the other hand, the Avs are off a hard-fought win at New Jersey last night. They’ll be playing their third game in the past four days here. The last time that they played the second of back-to-back games, they lost by a score of 5-2, at Tampa.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The Rangers are 3-2 (+1.6) when playing with three or more day’s rest in between games. They’re also 5-1 (+3.2) the last six times that they played a home game with an O/U line of 5.5. I like their chances here. Consider NY.

Jesse Schule

Toronto vs. Florida
Pick: Over

The Toronto Maple Leafs certainly don't have any problems scoring goals, and they have bulged the twine 15 times while winning three straight. One of those wins came in a 6-3 home victory over the Panthers, who they will face in Florida tonight.

The Panthers have lost three in a row, and veteran goaltender Tim Thomas has really struggled of late. Thomas is 2-3 with a 4.00 GAA in his last five starts, and he'll have to face the league's hottest scorer in Phil Kessel.

Kessel's 30 goals put him second in the league in scoring behind Alex Ovechkin, and he's scored 10 goals in his last 12 games. Three of those came against the Senators, as he had a hat-trick his last time out.

The Leafs have been lethal with the man-advantage, and that's not good news for a Florida team that ranks 29th in the NHL on the penalty kill.

While this appears to be a mismatch in favor of the Leafs, keep in mind that Toronto ranks among the worst defensive teams in the league, allowing an average of three goals per game.

Toronto doesn't win many low scoring games, and Jonathan Bernier has been beaten six times in his last two starts.

Pick: L.A. LakersFOR FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The Lakers have lost six games in a row SU, and four in a row ATS. With that being said, they're still 24-22-1 ATS on the season, and I look for them to stay inside the inflated number in Minnesota on Tuesday.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The T'Wolves have also been struggling, losers of back-to-back games, both SU and ATS.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Minnesota checks in 13-9 at home this season, but has outscored the opposition by just over seven points per game, so it's not as if the T'Wolves have been steam-rolling their foes.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The Lakers are 8-18 on the road, but have been outscored by less than nine points per contest.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
L.A. will be without Pau Gasol in this one, but that's certainly been factored into the line. Often times, we see the role players step up in the absence of a star, and I expect that to be the case here.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The T'Wolves will simply be looking to bounce back with a win here - margin of victory is of little importance. With back-to-back road games in Oklahoma City and New Orleans on deck, I'm not convinced they leave it all on the floor for 48 minutes against a beatable opponent.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
The Buckeyes needed a big win after a mini-slump in conference play and they got one with a hard-fought victory in Madison, Wisconsin last time out. They also have revenge on their mind after an 84-74 loss at home to the Hawkeyes. Revenge is not and should never be the sole reason for a play, but it should be noted OSU is on a 19-4 ATS run in revenge of a loss as a home favorite (10-1 ATS under Thad Matta). Ohio State led the Hawkeyes midway through the second half in the first meeting, but ended up on the short end of a couple of tough runs. OSU finished the loss with 17 turnovers and allowed 47 second half points. But we saw a return to form over the weekend when the Buckeyes got back to playing with serious activity and foot-work on the defensive end. I expect it to carryover into Tuesday night's tilt in Iowa City. I released Michigan State over Iowa on these pages last week and I believe we'll cash again with a recommendation on Ohio State plus the points tonight.

Red Dog Sports

Ole Miss vs. Kentucky
Play: Ole Miss +12.5

Mississippi gets points from 6'2" guard Marshall Henderson and the Rebels are a solid rebounding team. Their 1-3-1 defense should keep them packed in and force Kentucky to shoot some 3's. The Wildcats are led by the Harrisons and inside threat Julius Randle. I think we see Kentucky win by 9 but think Ole Miss can stay within the number. Take the road team getting double digits on Tuesday night in SEC action.

Miami Ohio vs. Northern Illinois    
Play: Miami Ohio -2½

Miami-Ohio takes the road to take on No. Illinois. Miami-Ohio is 5-3 in Conference games, and is averaging 63 points on the road. No. Illinois is currently averaging 56 points at home, and 56.9 points in conference games. No. Illinois is 1-7 ATS when playing at home, and 0-4 ATS when a home underdog 3 points or less. I love the value in this play!

Holy Cross vs. Colgate
Play: Holy Cross -1

Holy Cross has controlled the series of late winning 4 of the last 5 vs Colgate. Holy Cross comes in off a loss at American University despite shooting 60%, that loss snapped their 5 game win streak. Tonight they travel to Colgate which lost here at home by 9 to Bucknell on Saturday. In games vs teams ranked worse than 200 in the RPI Scale Holy Cross has won eleven of twelve this season. Look for Holy Cross to take another from Colgate here tonight and get back on Track in The Patriot Conference.

No team in the modern NBA age is able to maintain excellence for the entire season. Right now it's Indiana's turn to hit a lull.

The Pacers endured a grueling five-game, eight-day West Coast trip going 3-2. They then lost by eight points to Phoenix this past Thursday in their first home game following their journey. The Pacers were able to nip the Nets by only one point in their next game this past Saturday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Last night, the Pacers covered just their second spread in their last seven games by beating Orlando, 98-79. I'm not convinced, though, the Pacers are back to their winning ways. Orlando may be the worst team in the NBA during the last 20 games going 3-17.

Orlando's starters hung in against Indiana. It was the Pacers' reserves that sparked the victory scoring 49 points.

Now the Pacers are back in action for the eighth time in 12 days, third time in four days and second time in two nights. The Pacers have failed to cover in six of their last eight away matchups and are 0-4 ATS the past four times when playing without rest.

Atlanta, by contrast, last played on Saturday. This is just the Hawks' third game in eight days because they had a home game against Detroit postponed due to bad weather.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
The Hawks are 5-2 in their last seven games. They have covered four in a row. Atlanta isn't flashy and doesn't have any of their stars left as Josh Smith and Joe Johnson have departed and Al Horford is hurt. But the Hawks are solid, play good team ball and are tough at home where they have covered 65 percent of their games this season.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
The Pacers haven't won a regular season game at Atlanta since 2006, a string of 12 consecutive defeats. Paul Milsap has played so well that he made the All-Star team and DeMarre Carroll is playing his finest basketball scoring in double figures during his last seven games.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
Indiana plays Portland in its next game. That's a revenge spot for the Pacers, who were beaten by the Trail Blazers back in December. The Hawks are likely to treat this matchup more serious knowing the two teams could meet in the second round of the playoffs.

I like North Carolina tonight to win this game by double digits. North Carolina has now won their last 3 home games by double digits and should have no problem disposing of a Maryland team that is sub-par on the road. They did just beat Virginia Tech on Saturday on the road, but the Hokies are terrible. Maryland has lost by 9 @ NC State, by 24 @ FSU, and by 20 @ Pittsburgh. This is a good matchup for the Tarheels as they are holding opponents to a 39% shooting percentage at home and Maryland is only shooting 40.8% from the floor when they play on the road. Maryland has struggled all year long at guard play, and they just don't have a true floor general. This will hurt them as Marcus Paige and the Tarheels will be pushing the pace and forcing turnovers. Look for North Carolina to win this game comfortably. Trends: Maryland is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. North Carolina is 17-6 ATS in their last 23 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. Head-to-Head Trends: Home Team is 7-2 ATS the last 9 meetings Play on North Carolina.

Lakers at Timberwolves
Play: Under 216

The T-Wolves and Lakers face off on Tuesday in what Carlos sees as a lower scoring game. Look for the Lakers to try and slow the pace and keep Minnesota from getting easy basketball. Play the Under 216 with confidence.

Missouri at Florida
Play: Missouri +12

Missouri enters this game vs their host Florida as double digit underdogs . In my humble opion the line is just a bit inflated and looks like a viable situation to back the Tigers. The Tigers have played tough against every team they faced in the SEC this season with no loss coming by more than 6 points. They made the University of Kentucky work hard for a 84-79 win on the weekend and will once again not be pushovers vs a Gators side that despite of being red hot ,has not played a team ,as tenacious as the Tigers this season. Gators are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.Tigers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a SU loss Play on Missouri to cover

MISSOURI AT FLORIDA
PLAY: FLORIDA -12

If defense wins championships, Florida has a real shot to get the brass ring this season in college basketball. The Gators will look to maintain a tremendous recent roll tonight as the play host to Missouri.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
What Florida is doing on defense since SEC play got underway is bordering on the absurd. They’re allowing less than 39% on two point FG’s, and now less than 30% on opposing threes. Over the last four games, the opposition is a ridiculous 11/65 on treys against the Gators. The team just won’t give up good looks, and they’re absolutely relentless.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
Florida isn’t as naturally gifted offensively. They don’t shoot the three particularly well, and the free throw shooting is not exactly stellar. But the Gators seem to know their limitations, and they’re becoming very adept at working the ball for good shots. That explains the Gators sitting atop the SEC in offensive field goal efficiency.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
Missouri is a pretty good basketball team. They’re 16-5 right now and should be en route to a ticket to the Big Dance next month. But it looks to me like they’re going to have to knock down some threes to be in this game, and right now that’s apparently next to impossible against the Gators.
INSTEAD OF LEACHING OFF OTHERS WORK GO GET IT YOURSELF VIKESFAG
No bargain here, as it’s not like the Gators are some under the radar entry. They’re elite, and everyone knows it, thus there’s virtually no shot at getting any value with this team. That’s not mattering a bit at this juncture. The Gators are dismantling the opposition and until they show some indication they’re leveling off, it’s a play or pass situation on any Florida game. I’ll be looking to side with the rampaging Gators tonight.
