    Marquette has turned the ball over on nearly 30% of their possessions in their last two games (both losses). 40 turnovers! They also devastated the Pirates on D last time these two met and Seton Hall can't shoot the 3. I love the UNDER in this one.

    My Pick: Under 145

    Nevada vs Air Force (Mar 05) March 5 at 8:32pm

    Air Force turns it over on 19.2 percent of its possessions, which ranks 242nd in the nation. They also are awful on the offensive glass. Nevada is really angry about the L to Utah State. With the pace being to much for the Falcons to stop and definitely too much for them to keep up with & coming off a highly emotional loss, Wolf Pack take it out on the Falcons tonight.

    My Pick: Nevada -13.5

    Chicago vs Atlanta (Mar 01) March 1 at 2:10pm

    Both these bottom of the barrel teams have been playing well as of late and we're starting to see some promise in terms of pieces to the rebuilding puzzle starting to show. Think the Baby Bulls Offense is 28th in the league? Perhaps but in February, it came together to be one of only 4 teams in the East to average 116 per game lead by Maurkinson and Lavine. The addition of Otto Porter excited me with his wing abilities, especially on defense. I think Kris Dunn, a great on-ball defender, will make things difficult for Trae Young tonight. Collins will put up big numbers but I don't think it's enough to cover let alone win. I'm taking the Bulls on a +110 tonight. My only bet of the evening.

    My Pick: Chicago +2.5

    Oklahoma City vs Denver (Feb 26) February 26 at 7:04pm

    This game has playoff implications so for me it's a good bet on the dog, no matter who the bookkeepers decide to consider a dog. The winner will hold the tiebreaker for seeding heading into the playoffs and it's close with these two as well as a few others. OKC is well rested and have most recently had a much tougher schedule than that of Denver.

    My Pick: Oklahoma City +3.5

    I've been hot with VCU this year and I love them tonight on this -8. The loss to RIU was VCU's last in the conference and they've been gone undefeated since. RIU played a strong game with a big second half push to get the W at home against a different Rams Team. They're now up to 4th in the Nation in opponent fg % and definitely look to avenge that loss in January. RIU does not have a strong offensive unit of any sort. Love the Rams to dominate this one.

    My Pick: Va. Commonwealth -8

    Miami vs Dallas (Feb 13) February 13 at 2:51pm

    Without DJ and Barnes, this Dallas team is not nearly as good of a rebounding team as they were. Everyone has the Luka Fever & I get that, he's young and exciting and transcending. But a wise gambler doesn't get emotional. Miami crushes on the offensive glass ranking 4th in the NBA and do a good job muscling up on the perimeter where Justin Winslow plays a tough, big point guard. They're 3rd in the NBA in opponent 3-point FG %. With Whiteside down low as one of the best rim protectors in the league, where does Dallas go to if they can't buy a shot. I'm taking the points. Consider the Heat on the ML here too.

    My Pick: Miami +3

    Kansas vs TCU (Feb 11) February 11 at 4:33pm

    Kenpom has this as a pick 'em. Kansas has struggled on the road. TCU is great at making teams alter there 3-point attempts and instead going low where TCU isn't as talented but can trap teams into playing their style and succumb to their pace. Vegas is still not feeling good about Kansas, especially with the drama with Vick. I think this is one of those matchups they come to show the committee they are still the Jayhawks at the end of the day.

    My Pick: Kansas +2.5

    The Blue Raiders are just 7-15 ATS this year but 5-2 ATS in their last 7 and playing with some dignity and effort winning their last 3. I think they battle against the superior Monarchs and offer the fans a good game in losing fashion.

    My Pick: Middle Tenn. St. +6.5

    Toronto vs New York (Feb 09) February 9 at 2:22pm

    The new look Knicks are...not good, but the first Saturday night game at The Garden I think they play with a lot of intesity and emotion. Leonard and Gasol both questionable so even if we see Leonard play I don't think it's 100%, nor should it be. A star like that should rest in games like this on the road.

    My Pick: New York +12.5

    Oklahoma City vs Miami (Feb 01) February 1 at 11:07am

    If you lose by 16 to the worst team in the league and the only key piece you were missing was more a future HOF than a current threat, than I have to lay the points with MVP-caliber guards who get Steven Adams back tonight (most likely). Heat will have to play tough defense tonight. It won't be easy as OKC has had pretty good rest as of late.

    My Pick: Oklahoma City -5

    Davidson vs St. Bonaventure (Feb 01) February 1 at 10:52am

    I'm surprised this number is where it's at. Davidson has a couple of guards that will dominate this game. They've covered in 18 of the last 26 in the A10 and 4 of the last 5 against St. Bonn. Love, love, love Davidson tonight.

    My Pick: Davidson -1.5

    Indiana vs Orlando (Jan 31) January 31 at 3:27pm

    This quote from Coach McMillan says it all for me --- "It's just low energy right now...We've kind of lost our way here and we've got to find it. Victor is not coming back. We've got to move past that and not look at what we don't have and focus on what we do have, but we got to get more energy in the game. Defensively, we're not stopping anybody." Meanwhile Vuvecic is out to prove he is an All Star and while Orlando has been a bad team, they are very competitive - against better teams than these Pacers sans Oladipio.

    My Pick: Orlando -3

    Indiana vs Orlando (Jan 31) January 31 at 3:22pm

    Yeah, I'm trying to dig up some info right now. Might just be a case of 2nd of a back-to-back on the road and line maker finally coming to their senses. Last night Washington +1 was my easiest play in a while.

    My Pick: Orlando -3

    Utah vs Portland (Jan 30) January 30 at 3:14pm

    Both these teams are hot. The only L the Jazz have taken in their last 10 was at home to these Blazers. Mitchell had 36 that night. I think Utah does a better job this time around creating turnovers and get the big W on the road. This is a great matchup and I like the Jazz to avenge in Portland tonight. I have them straight up.

    My Pick: Utah +1.5

    Denver vs New Orleans (Jan 30) January 30 at 2:03pm

    Pelicans had their anomaly of a W last night, on the road in Houston. Denver and it's tough D is a much different matchup. Nuggets end the road trip by covering here. With virtually no threat at the basket with Davis, Randle and, Mirotic sitting against one of the better perimeter defenses in the league, I look for Denver to win easily.

    My Pick: Denver -8
