OPPOSITE PICKS: 31-12 ATS

UNDER 5.5 NJ @ NY Rangers While everyone else is playing OVER’s in the NHL there are two teams that have played nothing but UNDERS. They are a combined 4-0 UNDER with none of their 4 games having more than 5 goals.
OPPOSITE PICK: OVER 5.5 Devils/Rangers

PHILADELHIA -150 vs. Buffalo Back end of a 2 games in 2 nights for these 2 teams. Buffalo got the 2 points last night…beating Philly 5-1. No way the Flyers don’t respond against the pathetic Sabres. Lay the small price on the Flyers who won’t lose two straight at home to Buffalo.
OPPOSITE PICK: BUFFALO +140

OKC +9.5 @ Denver OKC is better than most figured it would be. An actually, they even better on the road where they are a remarkable 5-1 SU away from Oklahoma. Denver is only 3-5 SU & 2-6 ATS at home.
OPPOSITE PICK: DENVER -9.5

UTAH -6.5 vs. New Orleans Greatest sports axiom of all time. "Winners bet WITH streaks. while losers bet AGAINST streaks" Jazz have won and covered 5 straight winning 4 by double digits. Pelicans are only 5-7. Lonza Ball returns…big deal. They are only 4-5 when he plays.
OPPOSITE PICK: NEW ORLEANS +6.5

NC WILMINGTON -2 @ Towson Second game in 2 days for these teams. Somehow, someway godawful biggest waste of human flesh in basketball uniforms, Towson won yesterday’s game. No way they beat NC Wilmington twice. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE NCW.
OPPOSITE PICK: TOWSON +2

CENTRAL MICHIGAN +15 @ Toledo Tell the little lady there’s no need to pack your lunch today…you already have a big time sandwich game on your plate. Toledo is coming off a huge MAC showdown with Akron last time out….and they play MAC power 6-3 Kent St. next time out. That leaves dopy ,under .500 Central Michigan as the sandwich game. They might win, but that’s a big # to cover for a game they really aren’t concentrating on. LOVE CM
OPPOSITE PICK: TOLEDO -15

DUKE -2.5 @ Pittsburgh First time in 20+ years, the Dukey Pukies aren't ranked in the top 25 this week. Now they face a 7-2 Pittsburgh team that isn’t as good as it’s record would indicate. Topeka High could be 7-2 with Pitt's schedule. They have wins over teams like Gardner Webb, Drexel & Northern Illinois. One of their 2 loses was against St. Francis. St. stinking Francis can beat Pittsburgh and Duke can’t? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Duke.
OPPOSITE PICK: PITTSBURGH +2.5
*********

Monday:
ORLANDO -1.5 @ NY Knicks

MILWAUKEE -2 @ Brooklyn
OPPOSITE PICK: BROOKLYN +2 = WINNER

PORTLAND +2 vs. San Antonio
OPPOSITE PICK: SAN ANTONIO -2 = WINNER

KANSAS +9 @ Baylor
OPPOSITE PICK: BAYLOR -9 = LOSE

NHL…ST. LOUIS -180 vs. San Jose
OPPOSITE PICK: SAN JOSE +160
