Jack Jones expects the Pelicans and Grizzlies to go ‘Under’ on January 20th 2014

Jack Jones - NBA PickNew Orleans Pelicans vs. Memphis Grizzlies
NBA Prediction: Under 191 -110 odds (January 20th 2014)

The books have set the bar way too high tonight in this game between the New Orleans Pelicans and Memphis Grizzlies. I look for a low-scoring, defensive battle when these two teams get together on MLK Day.

New Orleans remains without two of its best players in leading scorer Ryan Anderson (19.8 ppg) and starting point guard Jrue Holiday (14.3 ppg, 7.9 apg). It has really struggled offensively of late because of it, scoring 96 or fewer points in seven of its last nine games overall.

Memphis has held each of its last three opponents to 90 points or less, and it remains one of the best defensive teams in the league. Offensively, it likes to slow down the tempo. In fact, the Grizzlies rank 30th in the league in pace with 92.5 possessions per game. New Orleans is 20th in pace with 95.1 possessions per contest.

Five of the last six meetings in this series have seen less than 191 combined points. The UNDER is 6-2-1 in Pelicans last nine games overall. The UNDER is 13-5 in Grizzlies last 18 home games vs. a team with a road winning percentage of less than 40%. Memphis is 26-11 to the UNDER off three or more consecutive unders over the last three seasons. Bet the UNDER in this game Monday.

North Carolina vs. Virginia Basketball Prediction for January 20th 2014

College Basketball Picks: January 20th 2014
North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Virginia Cavaliers
Prediction: NC +7.5

The Tar Heels are off a double digit win at home over Boston College and head to Virginia as noted underdogs. UVA is 4-1 with their only loss at Duke last Monday in ACC action. They have beaten Florida State twice and are led by seniors Joe Harris and Akil Mitchell. The Cavaliers are well coached by Tony Bennett and play solid defense.

UNC will drop to 1-4 with a loss. They are without PJ Hairston, who is now playing in the NBA’s D-League and scored over 20 points in his first game there over the weekend. UNC is led by Jame Michael McAdoo, who is from the state of Virginia and will be focused to play in Charlottesville. Marcus Paige is another UNC player who has played well so far. He shoots 91% from the foul line. UNC has lost their two road ACC games so far at Syracuse and at Wake Forest. The Tar Heels will need Leslie McDonald, Brice Johnson, Kennedy Meeks, Joel James and Nate Britt to step up.

Virginia did lose to home 48-38 to Wisconsin. I don’t know if UNC will be able to win but I think the Tar Heels will keep it close and stay within the number.

Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks Betting Prediction from John Ryan: January 20th 2014

John Ryan - NBA PickBrooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks
Betting Prediction: Brooklyn -2 -110 odds (January 20th 2014)

Ryan has hit 69% ATS of his 36 premium Top Rated 10* Titans plays in 2014. He has hit 65% ATS in his 52 premium 10* Top rated Titans combined in College and NBA releases. This release features extensive supporting research including a system that has gone 18-5 ATS this season.

5* graded play on the Brooklyn Nets as they take on the New York Knicks in NBA action set to be played at MSG starting at 2:35 PM ET. The simulator shows a high probability that the Nets will win this game by 5 or more points. Supporting this graded play is a proven system posting a 39-12 ATS mark for 77% winners since 2008. Play against home teams where the line is +3 to -3 (NEW YORK) 5hat are struggling teams getting outscored by their opponents by 3+ points/game and is now facing an opponent after a combined score of 225 points or more. Knicks are a team that plays basketball, but has limited team chemistry. There are numerous off-and-on court issues that the NY media has just devoured and it shows with the highly inconsistent play of the Knicks. Moreover, their focus has not been there when playing losing record teams. They sport a money burning 7-19 ATS (-13.9 Units) when playing against a marginal losing team winning between 40% to 49% of their games in games played over the last 2 seasons. Nets are a solid 14-4 ATS (+9.6 Units) in road games when playing only their 2nd game in 5 days over the last 2 seasons. Knicks had won five straight games, but have now lost three straight and have not come close to even an ATS cover. Nets are surging and finally playing solid team basketball. They have won 6-of-7 games and I strongly believe they will win this game quite easily. Take the Nets.

NHL Pick from Ben Burns: Dallas Stars vs. Nashville Predators: January 20th 2014

Ben Burns - NHL PickNHL Picks: January 20th 2014
Dallas Stars vs. Nashville Predators
Prediction: Under 5.5 goals

This is a 1-star free play on Nashville and Dallas to finish “under” the total.

Burns’ Sunday Sweep included winners on Denver and Seattle as well as another pair of winners on the ice.

Now 17-5 the L7 days (all sports) and 27-5 his L32 NHL sides, Burns takes a look at today’s Nash/Dal total.

Both these teams enter today’s game on “over” streaks.
The Stars have seen the “over” go 3-0-1 their last four while the Predators have seen the “over” go 3-0 their last three.

That doesn’t necessarily mean we should expect another high-scoring affair though.

Both this season’s meetings have produce five or fewer combined goals. The game at Dallas had a final score of 4-1. The Preds won the game here at Nashville by a score of 3-1.

Even with their last couple of games in that situation finishing above the number, the Preds have still seen the “under” go a profitable 22-10-6 the past few seasons, after scoring four or more goals in their previous game.

During that same span, note the “under” is also 5-1-1 when the Preds had seen their previous three games top the total.

The Stars have similar numbers in that situation. They’ve seen the “under” go 4-1-1 the last six times that their previous three games, excluding “pushes” had finished above the posted total.

While the Stars are scoring 2.4 goals in divisional games, the Preds are averaging 2.3. Consider the Under 5.5.
