College Basketball Picks for January 31st 2012: Clemson vs. Virginia

Clemson vs. Virginia
College Basketball Pick: Clemson +9 (January 31st 2012)

This line is higher than I expected it to be and we will take a shot with Clemson in this spot as the Tigers are in need of a solid quality win. They are riding a modest two-game winning streak and those wins came against Georgia Tech and Wake Forest which are certainly nothing special. Clemson lost three in a row prior to that and while it included road losses at Boston College and Miami, both of those games could have and should have been won.

Virginia is coming off another narrow victory as it won at NC State by a point to move to 4-2 in the ACC. The two losses have come by five points combined so while Clemson should have a better record than it does, Virginia is right in the same boat. The Cavaliers have been the big surprise of the season in the conference and one of the biggest in the country with a 17-3 record after finishing only a game over .500 last year. Virginia is just 2-5 ATS as a favorite of more than seven points.

This figures to be a defensive battle and that makes the points a premium and even more so when we are dealing with a large pointspread. Virginia leads the ACC by allowing its opponents just 50.6 ppg, while Clemson is yielding only 59.7 ppg, second in the conference. Clemson has also produced 297 turnovers this season, turnovers that head coach Brad Brownell says makes what the Tigers do a little bit different than what the Cavaliers do and that is be more aggressive which can in fact lead to easy baskets.

Clemson has covered five of its last eight games as a road underdog and it is 19-8 ATS in its last 27 games coming off a home win where it did not cover. The Cavaliers as mentioned have struggled with the role of the large favorite and a lot of that is due to the style of play as they will be more than happy to just grind it out and win a low scoring, close game. They have failed to cover their last four games at home and the underdog is on an 11-5 ATS run in this series. 3* (515) Clemson Tigers.

NBA Picks for January 30th 2012: Orlando Magic vs. Philadelphia 76ers

Orlando Magic vs. Philadelphia 76ers
NBA Pick: Orlando Magic +7.5 (January 30th 2012)

The Orlando Magic are showing some of their best value of the season tonight as a big underdog to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Magic have lost three straight coming in, which is the reason they are getting overlooked here. This is still one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.

I look for the Magic to right the ship tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers. Orlando has played well on the road this year, going 6-4 SU & 6-4 ATS away from home. They have had Philly’s number and it’s simply not a good match-up for the 76ers. The Magic are 10-1 SU & 8-3 ATS in their last 11 meetings with Philly.

This play falls into a system that is 29-11 (72.5%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet on road teams (ORLANDO) – after failing to cover 3 of their last 4 against the spread, extremely tired team – playing 9 or more games in 14 days. The Magic are 26-10-1 ATS in their last 37 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points. Orlando is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. Bet the Magic Monday.

Princeton vs. Pennsylvania Prediction: College Basketball Picks: January 30th 2012

Princeton vs. Pennsylvania
College Basketball Pick: Penn -2 (January 30th 2012)

The biggest rivalry in the Ivy League continues tonight with Princeton heading to Philadelphia to take on the Quakers at the Palestra. It has been a very quiet month for the Tigers as they have played only four games in all of January and have not played a game in 16 days due to exams. They are 3-1 in January but any sort of rhythm has been lost because of the time off and this is not a good time for that. This is just the second time since 1996 that these teams have played in January.

While Penn has seen limited action in January as well, it has played six games and is coming off a big win in its last game nine days ago. The Quakers defeated Big Five rival St. Josephs to make it three straight victories as well as making it four wins in their last five home games. Penn is off to a 2-0 start in the Ancient Eight and after dominating this series for a while, Penn has fallen the last five meetings against the Tigers. With this being the best team over that span, it will be payback time.

The Quakers should have a significant edge on the defensive side of the ball. Princeton is shooting only 42.4 percent on the season while Penn has held 12 of its 19 opponents to 45 percent shooting or less from the floor including seven at 40 percent or lower. This is a big improvement from last year when the Quakers held just 14 of their 28 opponents below 45 percent shooting, and only eight below 40 percent. Princeton shot 48.8 percent from the floor at the Palestra last year so Penn is much better off now.

The Quakers are 8-2 ATS over their last 10 games while going 7-1 ATS in their last eight games following a game where they covered the spread. Penn falls into a great situation as well as we play on home teams where the line is +3 to -3 that are coming off a win as a home underdog going up against an opponent that is coming off a road win. This situation is 53-24 ATS (68.8 percent) since 1997. We take advantage of the short number with the home team. 3* (744) Penn Quakers.

New England Patriots (17-5 SU, 12-10 ATS, 14-8 O/U)
While New England has looked absolutely fantastic on winning 10 straight games (until last week that is) they’ve also struggled mightily to cash in recently, compiling a discouraging 3-4 ATS mark over their last seven games, all of which they’ve been favored in, including the AFC title game which had the Pats as a 7-point home favorite.

Not only have the Giants won five straight games, but they’ve also cashed in for their betting faithful in every single victory! Want more? Well, New York’s defense has undergone a massive transformed since just before the end of the regular season. Despite finishing the regular season ranked 27th in total yards, 29th against the pass and 25th in scoring (25.0 ppg), the Giants have not allowed more than the 20 points they gave up to Green Bay in their NFC Division round matchup, in any of their last five games while holding Atlanta to a shocking two pints, Frisco to 17 points and Dallas and the Jets to 14 points apiece. New York has also scored at least 24 points in four straight of their L/5 games until getting held to an even 20 points by the defensive-minded 49ers. The G-Men finished fifth in passing during the regular season (295.9 ypg) while also ranking ninth in scoring (24.6 ppg) as Eli Manning completed a rock-solid 61.0 percent of his passes for 4,933 yards with 29 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.
