The set-up: The 42-16-8 Pittsburgh Penguins pulled within three points of league-leading Washington with Friday’s 3-2 shootout win at Edmonton. The Pens are now 2-0-0 on their five-game road trip (own a four-game winning streak overall), which continues when they visit the 28-30-9 Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. Vancouver is hoping to remain in the race for a playoff spot but it sits eight points behind St. Louis for the second wild card in the Western Conference.
Pittsburgh: Evgeni Malkin scored his 32nd goal Friday (he’s riding four-game goal and point streaks) to move one point ahead of captain Sidney Crosby (70) for the team lead and climb within four of Edmonton’s Connor McDavid (75), in the chase for the Art Ross Trophy. Center Nick Bonino followed a hat trick at Winnipeg on Wednesday with a goal in Edmonton to extend his point streak to four games. Crosby leads the NHL with 34 goals but is mired in a six-game drought, last scoring Feb. 25 against Philadelphia.
Vancouver: The Canucks have a more modest four-game run going, at 2-0-2 their last four. They suffered overtime losses at home to the New York Islanders and Montreal after winning on the road in Anaheim and Los Angeles. Hosting the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins at Rogers Arena on Saturday night is a big deal.
The pick: With a little luck, the Canucks get the Penguins playing their second of back-to-back road games. Pittsburgh may just put up a little less of a fight than usual. Also, the Pens will be missing heavyweight winger Tom Sestito, who will sit out the second of a four-game suspension for boarding Winnipeg’s Toby Enstrom on Tuesday night. Make the Under the play.

The second upset of this tourney right after Kansas went down to TCU Thursday was Baylor going down to Kansas State in the late game. Rest assured Huggy Bear will his team riled up for this one as a clear path to the title is easier with mighty Kansas out of the picture. Remember Kansas State who got beat by 30 against Oklahoma about a week ago? West Virginia owns edges is stats in scoring, FG%, defense, rebounding, depth and turnovers, not to mention you are catching a team off a huge upset win, which is usually a fade the next game, especially the day after.
I expect K State to drained here and for the full press and defense to takes it toll on the Wildcats tonight and for West Virginia to pull away late in the game.
NOTE: TOURNEY WEEK GAME OF THE YEAR goes tonight – Plus and Early Steamer and a Late Steam 3-Pack all from 25-year veteran capper Tony George off a 4-1 Thursday and cashing a top play!
Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Indiana Hoosiers
NBA Basketball Over-Under Pick: Under 156 points (March 9th 2017)

ASA has been on a CBB TOTALS ROLL winning 16 of their 25 top totals (64%) since January 1st. Don’t miss their BIG TEN TOTAL SMASH and BIG SKY BEST BET TOTAL tonight….
Our math model projects this one at 149 so an advantage to the UNDER. These two met a few weeks ago and while Iowa won the game 96-90 in OT, at the end of regulation it was 75-75 so 150. Both teams shot very well (both at 47%) and the made a whopping 55 FT’s in the game. We don’t anticipate those offensive numbers today as both play their first game ever at the Verizon Center. The Hawkeyes have been a high scoring team at home in Big ten play (81 PPG), however on the road for the season they average 8 fewer points (73) while shooting just 40%. Only one of their conference road games topped this current total of 155.5 and that was @ Purdue when the two teams tallied 156. Indiana was in a very similar situation this season. The Hoosiers put up more than 80 PPG this season at home yet just 72 on the road.
IU’s offense was much less potent down the stretch as well as they failed to reach 80 points in 10 of their last 11 games (in regulation). We look for this game to stay UNDER the number.
