    5* #713. Take Oklahoma City -6 over Memphis (Wednesday @ 8:35pm est).

    This is a big revenge game for Oklahoma City. If you trace the last few contests between these two teams you'll notice that Memphis has won the last 4 contests by a combined total of 24 points as the Thunder were hobbled with injuries last year especially with Westborok. Now, this team is healthy and rolling at 16-4 as they face a Memphis team that is that is hobbled a bit with injuries and note that Memphis has not won back to back games in November 18th and November 20th. Since then, this team has gone 3-5 and as they come off a win and cover with Orlando, and with the big revenge angle that OKC has coming into this game, I look for Memphis to struggle as OKC is likely to have this game circled with revenge for some time. Note that OKC has won its last 2 games against quality teams on the road including Atlanta and New Orleans by a combined total of 25 points and I would not be a bit surprised to see this team do well today with revenge in mind and with the Grizzlies struggling to post back to back victories and covers of late. This is a short lay as OKC will be more than motivated this evening.

    3* #719. Take Penn State -6.5 over Duquesne (Wednesday @ 7pm est).

    Penn State has the opportunity to do extremely well today given that they are a top 100 power ranking team in my book facing Duquesne. Bear in mind these two teams have played for the past 3 years as this is new series and they have some history with Penn State winning and covering a similar number last year (around -6 upon closing). I usually like Underdogs focused in Big10, Big12, SEC or Metro Atlantic contests because it allows for bigger lines to take with underdogs who are undervalued with the POD, but occasionally you'll find a rivalry overrated and the underdog receiving too much respect. There is no doubt Duquesne will be excited about playing a bigger named school in State, but nevertheless, this is a Penn State team that is top 40 in offense and a top 5 turnover team. I have them specifically at number 72 in the power rankings and they lost their last away game at Pittsburgh by 9 points as well as losing to Ole Miss by 3 points on neutral footing so as they step away from home once again, I suspect that focus will be there. Duquesne is outside the top 200 in the power rankings and this team has beat similar opponents by 24 and 12 points (Monmouth and Penn). So, what we get is a Penn State team who has only lost to the likes of 3 top 80 teams including Bucknell (by 10), Ole Miss by 3 and Pittsburgh who is a top 5 power ranking team on the road laying around 6.5 or so. I have Penn State winning this game by about 11 points here and that differential is enough for us to roll with State as the better team this evening led Frazier, Newbill and Travis who are 3 upperclassman that played a role in beating this Duquesne team last year. The Nittany Lions are 9-1-1 in their last 11 ATS non-conference games and the Dukes are 3-10 ATS when facing a team with a straight up winning record overall.

    3* #51. Take Toronto Maple Leafs +127 over LA Kings (Monday @ 7:35pm est).
    Randy Carlyle was hired to do exactly what he's done so far with the Maple Leafs: Get them into the playoffs. Now Carlyle's experience comes into play -- he won the Stanley Cup in 2007 and went to the playoffs in five of his six full seasons with the Anaheim Ducks. Carlyle is demanding, but the Maple Leafs have responded, and resemble their coach with their tough, physical and in-your-face style of play. The Leafs had an excellent season and were cruelly eliminated from the postseason by the Bruins in a series that could only be seen to be believed. With that memory suppressed, the Leafs are ready to improve on last season's showing and play deeper into the playoffs. The offense is loaded and the Toronto believes it has solved its goaltending woes by acquiring Jonathan Bernier from Los Angeles to give the squad a boost between the pipes. The additions of Dave Bolland and David Clarkson up front could turn out to be a major coup. This is a team that grew up an awful lot during seven-game series against the Bruins and should continue to progress under the guidance of head coach Randy Carlyle. As for the Los Angeles Kings, there has been more teams regress from unexpected playoff success than replicate that unexpected form in the past. And we have doubts that GK Jonathan Quick can be as dominating as he was when winning the Conn Smythe Trophy and the Stanley Cup, especially since he's off back disk surgery in the offseason. Essentially, with LA coming off such a big a win 6-0 in their last contest over Montreal and with the Maple Leafs getting beat badly 2-5 in their last contest against the Bruins, I like Boston to rebound here this evening.

      Orlando+5.5 to sprinle a little magic tonight!

      NCAA
      Canisius+3.5 to ride the bulls *out of their own gym!

      :frusty: * "out of their own gym!" Another Clueless capper as to where the game is even being played! This game is part of a doubleheader [Davidson~Niagara playing first] as part of the NCAA requirement that it be a dry run since part of the NCAA tourney is being played at the First Niagara Center in March.
