Oklahoma vs. TCU Basketball Betting Odds & Pick from Jack Jones: March 8th 2014

Jack Jones - College Basketball PickOklahoma vs. TCU
Basketball Betting Pick: TCU +11 -110 odds (March 8th 2014)

This is TCU’s final chance to pick up that elusive Big 12 win. Obviously, the Horned Frogs do not want the embarrassment of going 0-18 in Big 12 play. You can bet they will be laying it all on the line to beat Oklahoma Saturday to avoid that distinction.

I believe the effort will be good enough to stay within double-digits of the Sooners as this one goes right down to the wire. The Horned Frogs have been able to stay within 12 points in eight of their Big 12 losses, and one of those was a 69-77 loss at Oklahoma as a 14-point underdog on January 22.

Oklahoma knows that it will be going to the big dance after winning four of its past five games to close out the season. I just don’t foresee the Sooners being motivated enough to win this game by 11-plus points today. Plus, they are just 4-4 in true road games this season, doing most of their damage at home.

The Sooners are 3-12 ATS in their last 15 road games versus poor offensive teams that score 64 or fewer points per game. Kyan Anderson (17.0 ppg, 4.4 apg) is a special player, and I look for his solid play to help the Horned Frogs hang with Oklahoma for 40 minutes in their finale. Bet TCU Saturday.

St. John’s vs. Marquette Betting Odds & Pick from Dave Price: March 8th 2014

Dave Price - College basketball PickSt. John’s vs. Marquette
Betting Pick: Marquette -3 -110 odds (March 8th 2014)

Following back-to-back losses on the road, I expect Marquette to bounce back strong at home where it is 12-3 this season. The Golden Eagles are 10-2 ATS off a road loss to a conference foe over the last three seasons, winning by an average score of 75.9 to 67.5 in this spot. They are also 6-0 ATS in home games under coach Williams after being held to 30 points or less in the first half in two straight games and have exploded to win by an average score of 76.0 to 62.5 in this spot. St. John’s won the first meeting 74-59 at home, but it hasn’t been the same team on the road where it is 3-5 this season. The Golden Eagles are 6-2 ATS in their last eight home games versus a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400. Lay the points.

With Friday’s 2-0 SWEEP, which included an easy NCAAB winner on UCF -2 (by 21 over Houston), Dave improved to a DOMINANT 32-15 (68%) his L37 NCAAB picks. He’s also a RED HOT 7-2 (78%) in college hoops the last 3 Saturday’s, and the domination continues with his 10-0 Big 12 *CA$H COW* (Early) & 7* Pac-12 GAME OF THE MONTH (5-0 L5 Sat.

Arizona vs. Oregon Basketball Betting Pick & Odds from Scott Spreitzer: March 8th 2014

Scott Spreitzer - College Basketball PickArizona vs. Oregon
Basketball Betting Pick: Oregon +3 -110 odds (March 8th 2014)

I’m recommending a play on Oregon plus the points on Saturday afternoon. The Ducks made it six straight wins when they beat Arizona State last time out. But we should note they’re a grand total of just six points away from an 11-game winning streak. Oregon, 8-3 SU in those outings, lost by two points each to Arizona, Arizona State, and UCLA. They’ve already exacted revenge against ASU and UCLA and I believe they’ll complete the “trifecta” today. Arizona has won five straight games, but they aren’t quite as strong since the season-ending injury to Brandon Ashley. The Arizona forward was injured just 2 minutes into a February 1 contest against Cal. Including that game, Arizona is 7-2 SU in their last nine. Three of the wins could have gone either way, including Wednesday’s win over Oregon State. The Beavers led late in the game and the contest was tied with under two minutes to go before Arizona won 74-69. I believe the Ducks are “catching” the Wildcats at the right time. Dana Altman has Oregon on an 11-3 ATS March run over the last three seasons and they’re 23-10 ATS in their last 33 as an underdog. The Ducks have also covered four straight in this series. I’m recommending a play on Oregon plus the points. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.

Missouri vs. Tennessee Basketball Betting Odds & Pick from Will Rogers: March 8th 2014

Will Rogers - College Basketball PickMissouri vs. Tennessee
Basketball Betting Pick: Tennessee -8.5 -110 odds (March 8th 2014)

Tennessee is a team that should have a better record. But yet the Vols are firmly on the NCAA Tournament bubble and can’t afford to slip up either here or early in the SEC Tournament. Fortunately, it appears as if they’ve gotten the message. They have destroyed their last two opponents by a combined 66 points and won three straight overall.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Revenge – The Volunteers lost by five in Columbia three weeks ago. Fortunately, they are 6-1 ATS this season when looking to avenge a road loss. Missouri shot 56.5% in that first meeting. They are highly unlikely to match that today on the road.

2. Homecourt Advantage – Tennessee is 13-3 in Knoxville and is outscoring opponents here by an average of 16.7 points/game. They are 28-14 ATS their last 42 home games including 5-1 ATS in the -9.5 to -12 range. Missouri is just 3-6 SU on the road this year. They have lost their last four away from home, including a 15 pt loss to Georgia.

3. X-Factor – UT is just rolling right now, finally living up to their potential. They have played only one bad game all season. I don’t expect them to make it two on a day they are honoring their Seniors.

Selection: This is a free play on Tennessee (1*).

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Chicago Bulls Betting Odds & Pick from Steve Janus: March 7th 2014

Steve Janus - NBA PickMemphis Grizzlies vs. Chicago Bulls
Betting Pick: Chicago Bulls +1 -110 odds (March 7th 2014)

The Bulls were able to rebound from an ugly 80-96 loss at Brooklyn on Monday with a 105-94 road win over the Pistons. Chicago is 10-2 over their last 12 games and what’s really impressive is that 8 of those contests came on the road. It’s also worth noting that the Bulls are 11-3 at home since the start of the new year. The fact that Chicago is currently tied for 3rd in the Eastern Conference with their best player on the sidelines, really says a lot about this team and how hard they play.

The Bulls are one of the few teams you have to worry about showing up to play on a consistent basis and that is certainly not an issue tonight. In fact, with this game being aired on ESPN, I would expect Chicago to come out with a lot of intensity. You could argue that Chicago will be looking ahead, but the fact that they have to host Miami, San Antonio, Houston and Oklahoma City over their next five games, makes it that much more important to take care of business tonight.

A key factor favoring Chicago is that the Grizzlies could be without starting power forward Zach Randolph, who missed their last game with the flu. While I think there’s a good chance Randolph will play, his energy level figures to be lacking and will likely play fewer minutes than normal.

The Bulls are 13-4 ATS when they enter a game having won 3 of their last 4 this season, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 4-0 in their last 4 versus the Western Conference and 37-16 ATS in their last 53 games played on Friday. BET CHICAGO +1!

NBA Betting Picks: Bet Sacramento and Cleveland on March 7th 2014

NBA Betting Picks: March 7th 2014

Brandon Shively - NBA PickPrediction: Sacramento Kings +6 (Brandon Shively)
This is a perfect time for Sacramento to get the cover against Toronto. The Kings are on a two game winning streak and kicked off their 7 game road trip with a win against Milwaukee on Wednesday. These two teams met in Sacramento last month and the Kings won 109-101. The game really wasn’t that close as Toronto ended up out-scoring Sacramento by 12 points in the 4th quarter to make the game look respectable when the Kings actually had a 2 2point lead in the second half.

Taking a closer look at that game, Rudy Gay put up 24 points and 10 rebounds vs. his former team while Demarcus Cousins dominated the paint with 25 points and 10 rebounds. Now Rudy Gay is going back to Toronto where he is comfortable shooting the ball. Derrick Williams and Ray McCallum did not play in that game for the Kings and these two guys are key reserves for the Kings that will be playing tonight. McCallum has been getting more minutes and his coming off a 15 point outing vs. Milwaukee.

Sacramento is 5-0 ATS vs. the Raptors in the last meetings, including going 4-0 SU which includes TWO straight up wins the last two times they have visited Toronto; once as a 7 point dog and the other as a 5.5 point dog. I really like Sacramento to win this game as I feel like they have the trio of guards to score baskets and then they have the big rebounding edge over the Raptors as well as rebounding the Toronto’s biggest problem currently. Sacramento has been out rebounding their opponents by 8 rebounds a game the last 5 games and I feel this is a big factor in tonight’s game. Play on Sacramento

Tom Grassi - NBA PickPrediction: Cleveland Cavaliers +5.5 (Tom Grassi)
A pair of teams separated by just four games, and in contention for one of the last playoff spots in the Eastern Conference meet at Charlotte tonight. The two squads come into this game off completely different outcomes in their last contest: the Cavaliers were on the wrong end of a 21-point decision at home against San Antonio, while the Bobcats jolted the Indiana Pacers in a 109-87 victory.

Cleveland has dropped both games against Charlotte this season, each game taking place in the opening weeks of the season. While that opens up the possibility of the revenge angle playing a role here, one system has been notable for its success the last two months. It deals with road dogs from four to eight points with more than the usual day of rest: this season, those teams have covered 11 of 13 times.

The Bobcats have broken the century mark on the scoreboard during their last two games, which sounds impressive until you realize that offers a very negative situation for them in this game. Over the past two years, they’ve played 11 games under such circumstances, but have covered only once.

The Cavaliers have held the edge in this series over the past few years, covering seven of the last 10 games. Still, the numbers above are in their favor, and they seem to rotate good and bad performances, so we’re going to take the points here.
