Mon 3/19

The Nuggets have gone 11-22 on the road this season, 12-17-4 ATS, and they started a seven-game road trip Saturday with their worst loss of the season, a 101-94 loss at Memphis (+7). The Grizzlies have the NBA's worst record and had lost 19 straight. Miami will be without Hassan Whiteside for the fifth straight game, and Dwyane Wade is out as well, but the Nuggets have a larger void without team MVP Gary Harris. The collapse Saturday was without him. Miami has enough to get the cover here.

Mon 3/19

The Pac-12 only got three teams in the NCAA's and by the end of Thursday, all three were eliminated. But I still think the conference got screwed, and I also think the SEC was way overrated. This is a play here taking advantage of one teams strength against the others weakness. LSU has gone 0-6-2 in their last eight road games while Utah has gone 10-4-3 ATS in their last 17 home games. I'm on Utah.

LOSS
Sat 3/17

Cincinnati's defense should give the Wolfpack trouble just like it does everyone else -- No. 2 in nation in both field-goal percentage allowed, 37.1 percent, and 57 ppg. Despite shrinking totals, Cincy has stayed Under in five of its last six. Under is the top play.

LOSS
Sat 3/17

I've seen this game before and Purdue won, 82-67, holding Butler to 37 percent shooting while all five Purdue starters scored in double figures. It was the Crossroads Classic in Indianapolis (Dec. 16) and Purdue was a 7-point favorite. Purdue has gone 2-10-2 ATS in its last 14 games, which is part of why this number is now so low, but I like Purdue to do a repeat of what they did to Butler last time. Boiler-up!

WIN
Sat 3/17

Xavier has gone 21-13 ATS this season, but the Musketeers have gone 2-5 ATS in their last seven. Their rating has peaked, although this number should probably be closer to -4.5, which means FSU has slight value. Xavier only lost five games this season, but I've seen them look bad in two small wins against DePaul. ASU ran them out of the gym and Providence beat them twice. FSU's win against Missouri stopped an ugly 0-8 ATS run. But I'm still taking the points with FSU in what could be another No. 1 bowing out.
