Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Spread Pick from Brandon Shively: March 6th 2017

Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
NBA Point Spread Pick: Cleveland -8 (March 6th 2017)

The Cavs practically gave the Heat the last meeting in Miami a few days ago…No Lebron..No Kyrie..And it the result was a 28 point loss as the Cavs were playing on a tough back to back spot. Now, the Cavs are fresh and they have 2 days off after this game so I expect Lebron and Kyrie to give the home crowd a strong showing. After playing their previous 3 games on the road and with 3 more games upcoming on the road, this is the spot where I want to lay the points with Cleveland on their homecourt.

How good are the Heat? I feel the oddsmakers has begun to give them too much respect. They are only 5-4 straight up after their 12 games win streak was snapped. They have lost their last 2 road games and the talent is not there to carry them for the long haul.

The Cavs are 15-7 ATS since 2014 as a home favorite of 7 or more points when playing with same season revenge. They have won these games by an average of 16 points. When Cleveland is a home favorite is playing with revenge from a 20+ loss, they are 4-0 SU their L4 winning by 12,13, 21, and 30 points.

The Miami Heat are 7-15 ATS since 1996 as a road dog of 7+ points when facing a Eastern Conference team that is playing with same season revenge. The Heat made 18 three pointers against the Cavs on Saturday which was rare. They are 1-11 ATS since 2009 as a road dog after making 10 or more three pointers in their previous home win. Look for the revenge minded and fresh legs of the defending Champs to make a statement here in front of the home crowd (1* Cleveland)

Golden Gophers vs. Badgers Basketball Spread Pick from Will Rogers: March 5th 2017

Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Wisconsin Badgers
Basketball Point Spread Pick: Wisconsin -6.5 points (March 5th 2017)

The set-up: Wisconsin was ranked 22nd in last Monday’s poll but win or lose here, the Badgers will likely drop out of the next AP poll. The Badgers were once 21-3, including 10-1 in the Big Ten but have lost five of six, with all five losses coming to unranked teams while Wisconsin was ranked (more in a bit). Wisconsin (22-8 / 11-6 in Big Ten) wraps up its regular season by hosting the 23-7 (11-6 in Big Ten play) Minnesota Golden Gophers, who in contrast to the Badgers, have won eight in a row under fourth-year coach Richard Pitino to complete the best single-season win improvement in school history.

Minnesota: Pitino led Minnesota to the NIT title in his first year, as the Golden Gophers finished with 25 wins. However, an 18-15 (6-12 Big Ten) season followed, before last year’s ‘nightmare,’ when Minnesota went just 8-23, including 2-16 in Big Ten play. Minnesota went 12-1 in non-conference play to open the 2016-17 seaosn but after opening 3-1 in Big Ten play, lost five in a row from Jan. 11 through Jan. 28. However, EIGHT wins in a row have followed and if Minnesota beats Wisconsin, the Gophers will claim the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten tourney!

Wisconsin: Despite all its recent woes, the Badgers will assuredly claim their 19th consecutive NCAA tournament berth. Amazingly, if Wisconsin beats Minnesota, it will claim the No. 2 seed and get a double bye in the Big Ten tournament. The 6-8 Hayes (13.5 & 6.2) was a preseason All American but hasn’t played like one while guard Koenig (14.1) hasn’t been quite the same since being slowed by an injury. The one constant has been the 6-10 Happ (14.0 & 8.9), who has been Wisconsin’s best performer all season.

The pick: Here’s the rub. In losing five straight games to unranked teams while being ranked, Wisconsin has tied an NCAA record no team wants to share. If Wisconsin loses here (Gophers are not ranked), it will break that record. Then again, if Wisconsin wins, it’s the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten tourney. Wow! Wisconsin has won 20 of its last 22 home games (including a 14-2 mark this season) and Minnesota hasn’t won in Madison since 2009. Expect the Badgers to ‘rise from the dead’ and end Minnesota’s eight-game winning streak.

Golden State vs. New York NBA Betting Prediction from Larry Ness: March 5th 2017

Golden State Warriors vs. New York Knicks
NBA Betting Prediction: GS -9.5 (March 5th 2017)

“Stop the presses!” The Warriors have lost consecutive regular-season games. Kevin Durant went down with a knee injury in the Warriors’ 112-108 loss at Washington on Tuesday and then Golden State shot a season-low 38.6 percent in its worst offensive output since March 19, 2016 on Thursday, a 94-87 loss at Chicago (the 87 points were a season-low for Golden St). The problem hasn’t been hard to isolate. Curry is a woeful 4-for-31 (12.9%) from beyond the arc in the first three games of this current five-game road trip, while fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson hasn’t much better, going  7-for-33 (21.2%).

That dynamic duo plus the entire Golden State team must now get used to life without Durant, who will be out at least four weeks! The Warriors play today at MSG against the 25-37 Knicks, then wrap the trip in Atlanta tomorrow. A couple of shots we normally make did not fall,” guard Stephen Curry told reporters. “That’s not the reason we lost. We just need to understand that early in games, when we have new rotations, we cannot take our foot off the gas pedal. Every possession is important for us to pick up a rhythm without (Durant).” In the Knicks, the Warriors get a struggling team which is playing a rare home game in a stretch that sees them playing 10 of 13 away from home.

The Knicks lost 105-102 at Philadelphia on Friday, as Carmelo Anthony went 5-for-18 from the floor. Anthony (23.3-6.0) is shooting just 38.2 percent in the five games since the All-Star break (2-3) but the good news is, Kristaps Porzingis (18.2-7.1) seems over a recent ankle injury, averaging 19 points and eight rebounds in two games since returning from a two-game absence The Knicks are 12th in the Eastern Conference, trailing the Detroit Pistons by five games for the eighth and final spot. New York is going nowhere, as after this home game with the Warriors, the Knicks play their next four games on the road as the Garden hosts the Big East tournament.

Golden St’s NBA record of 146 straight regular season games without back-to-back losses has now been snapped, so it’s time to focus on avoiding the team’s first three-game losing streak since November of 2013. The Knicks should play the perfect foil, as the Warriors have won the last five meetings between the two teams, all by at least 13 points. Lay it with Golden St.
