Free NCAA Pick: Georgia Southern -4.0 – Monday February 2nd ’09 7:30p
Visit Touthouse.com for more college basketball betting picks and NBA Predictions from Bob Harvey
The ASU basketball team has won two of its last three games and looks to move up in the Southern Conference North division as the team faces Georgia Southern.
The Mountaineers (8-11, 5-6 SoCon) defeated Furman 77-75 on Saturday behind 16 points and 16 rebounds from sophomore center Isaac Butts. The double-double was his seventh of the season. Classmate Donald Sims led the team in scoring with 20 points and sank four late free throws to help ice the game.
Sims has scored in double figures each of the last six games, and has started the last five for Appalachian and now averages 11.5 points per game. Butts is the team leader with 8.9 rebounds per game.
Georgia Southern (7-12, 5-6) enters the game on a two-game skid after dropping road games at Samford and Chattanooga over the weekend. Willie Powers leads the team with 40 assists and 14.5 points per game.
The Eagles (7-12 overall, 5-6 SoCon) have won four of their five Southern Conference home games this year.
Georgia Southern is coming off a disappointing 100-87 loss at Chattanooga, despite hitting a season-high 15 3-pointers and shooting 53.6 percent from long range.

Dallas Mavericks +7.0 (-110) – Monday February 2nd ’09 7:05p
The Dallas Mavericks had a four-game winning streak vs. the Orlando Magic snapped when the Magic went into Dallas and upset them earlier this season, so look for a determined effort by the revenge-minded Mavericks tonight. The Mavs are one of the better road teams in the NBA, going 13-12 straight up away from home so far, and they have won on their last two visits to Orlando including a handy 107-98 win here last season. Dallas won the first game of this two-game Florida trek when they trounced the Heat 111-96 in Miami on Saturday. Their offense is in high gear right now, as the Mavericks are averaging 110.0 points per game in their last four games, scoring at least 100 points in all of those games. That makes these points look very generous here, especially with Dallas coming out of the stronger Western Conference. Now granted, the Magic are an elite East team and they are 18-4 straight up at home. Keep in mind though that they played a fast-paced game in Toronto yesterday, winning 113-90, so they may not have their legs totally under them tonight. Besides, this spread is large enough that they can still win this game on the court without covering the spread. Finally, the Orlando defense has slacked off a bit the last five games, allowing 96.4 points per contest. Thus, Dallas should approach the century mark again, making these points worth taking.
