Atlanta Thrashers @ Tampa Bay Lightning u5.5 (100)
Mon Mar 31 ’08 7:35p - Click Here for Hockey Odds
Granted, the Thrashers are coming off of a 7-1 loss at Carolina, but that snapped a streak of seven consecutive road Unders for them. We don’t expect them to give up another seven-spot to Tampa Bay here, so look for a return to normalcy. The Thrashers are averaging just 2.27 goals per game on the road over the entire season, and they have now gone 12 consecutive road games without scoring more than three goals.
The Lightning are coming off of a 2-1 home win over that same Carolina team, and that brings the Under to 9-3 in the last 12 Tampa Bay home games. The Ning have played better than expected defensively at home this year allowing 2.90 goals per game, but they have underperformed offensively as of late, averaging only 2.40 goals over that last five games.
That sounds like a nice recipe for an Under here.
NHL Free Pick: Thrashers, Lightning Under 5.5 (+100)
Toronto Blue Jays (145)

Now granted, Chien-Ming Wang has been downright dominant at home during his brief Yankee career. However, the Yankees have lost his last three starts vs. the Blue Jays, and he allowed 12 earned runs in just 17 innings over those outings, making him vulnerable as a big favorite here. Also, we still do not have much faith in the Yankees long relievers, so if this becomes a battle of the pens, we think the Blue Jays would have the advantage.
The bottom line here is that Toronto has the better starting pitcher and the better bullpen, while the Yankees obviously have a big edge offensively. However, given Halladay’s history against them, look for the Yankee bats to be kept relatively quiet here as the Blue Jays spring the upset.
MLB Free Pick: Blue Jays +145

Davidson @ Kansas u147.0 (-110)
Sun Mar 30 ’08 5:05p
Kansas is limiting opponents to just 38.0 percent shooting this season, and their defense has been absolutely suffocating during this tournament, allowing 57, 56 and 61 points respectively on a miniscule 34.0 percent shooting! In fact, Kansas has held six of their last eight opponents to 61 points or less.
Now for all of Curry’s success this season, Davidson games are still averaging just a combined 141.8 points, about five points vs. this posted total, and all of those games were vs. lesser defenses. Also, the Under is still 18-15 in all Wildcats games, despite their first three tournament games all going Over posted totals that were much lower than this one.
We look for this game to top out at around 140 points or so.
CBB Final Four Free Pick: Davidson, Kansas Under 147
Utah Jazz -6.5
Sun Mar 30 ’08 3:35p
Game: Utah Jazz vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
Game Time: 3/30/2008 3:35:00 PM
Prediction: Utah Jazz
Reason: The Utah Jazz enter into this tilt against their hosts the Minnesota Timberwolves well aware of a ugly 111-100 loss they suffered here earlier this season, in embarrassing fashion , as they turned the ball over 24 times. . Needless to say, the Jazz will be primed for a big time performance , making them the right side in this spot, even though they have some key players hobbled with nagging injuries. Final notes & Key Trends: Minnesota is 17-35 ATS L52 at home. Play on Utah

The Washington Capitals enter into this tilt against their hosts the Florida Panthers winning 7 of their L/8 overall , including 4 of their L/5 on the road, as they continue their desperate quest for a post season appearance. The Florida Panthers , who have lost 3 of their L/4 and are all but eliminated from this years play offs do not have as much to play for , thus making a very motivated Capitals team the right side this evening.

Memphis Grizzlies +2.5 (-110)
Sat March 29 ’08 10:35p – Click Here for NBA Basketball Odds
Yes, the Memphis Grizzlies are prime candidates for a letdown here, but at least they have been playing better lately and there is no way we could give points with the Los Angeles Clippers right now.
The Grizzlies are on a nice 7-1 run against the spread, so while their 114-111 upset win on the road last night was almost certainly their biggest win of the season, it is not as if that effort came totally out of the blue. Memphis is a respectable 4-4 straight up during this current run, and they are a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last five road contests.
The Clippers are on a 10-game losing streak, which does not exactly exude confidence in a small favorite like this. They have found little consolation at home this season either, going just 12-24 straight up in their own building.
While a Memphis letdown may be likely, we feel they should still be able to beat this pathetic Clippers club considering each team’s current form.
CBB Free Pick: Grizzlies +2.5

Michigan State @ Memphis u136.0 (-110 odds)
Fri Mar 28 ’08 9:55p
Yes, the Memphis Tigers and Michigan State Spartans are both capable of scoring in bunches, but defense wins championships and we look for both defensive units to rise up here.
Memphis may be one of the flashiest teams in the country, so it is easy to forget the fact that they do have a tenacious defense that has gotten them through some games this season when they were less than spectacular offensively. The Tigers are allowing just 61.1 points per game on 38.6 percent shooting for the entire year, and prior to allowing 74 points to Mississippi State on Sunday, they had allowed 63 points or less in six straight games.
Now Michigan State is more known for their defense, and with good reason. They too are limiting opponents below 40 percent shooting this year, at 39.8 percent, while permitting 61.7 points per contest. They have not allowed more than 65 points in any of their last six contests.
While some fans may be disappointed, look for defense to prevail in this matchup tonight.
Free March Madness Pick: Michigan State, Tigers Under 136
