NBA PICKS: 11/30/07

We lost are only game last night as the Rockets failed to show-up at the Warriors. Brings our season record to a heart breaking 43-47-1. We are down, but definately not out. The season still has a long way to go and we are in it to win it. Here are our picks for tonight:

Celtics -3 @ Heat: The C’s head south to South Beach after an absolute beating of the Knicks. The Knicks put on the worse pefromance I have ever seen. Why Q. Richardson talked smack before the game about the C’s amazes me. This line is low because the Celtics are a much different team playing back-to-back games. Also, the last time they played the Heat it was at home and they barely won. We think they took the Heat for granted in the game. They will be ready for them now. 3 points is not too much for this team. Take the Celtics -3

Pacers -1.5 @ Sonics: The Pacers have been playing decent lately. The Sonics are very young and they have been making teams work to beat them. We think the experience of the pacers will win out here. Take the Pacers -1.5.

Blazers +13.5 @ Mavs: The Blazers are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games. It will end tonight. Take the Blazers +13.5.

Magic +5.5 @ Suns: The Suns have been an enigma ATS this year (if you’ve paid attention to our picks, you’ll know that that is EXTREMELY frustrating to us). The Magic are our homies. We are ridin’ with them. We think they win outright. Take the Magic +5.5.

Bucks -1.5 @ Knicks: Although experience tells us that we should take the Knicks here, we aren’t. F the Knicks. We are taking the Bucks on principal. Take the Bucks -1.5.

Good luck.

NCAA Football Week 14 Picks: Picks and Chicks – The Legend of Keyra

To start things off this week we want to thank you the readers. As of time of this blog, we have had over 2,650 people read us this month. To go along with these thanks we want to ask for your input, advice, suggestions, etc… Please feel free to tell us we stink or to praise us. We know you all want winners and we do to because our money is always where our mouth is.

On the season we are 53-51, 6-4 on Eva Mendes bets and up 10 units. We are disappointed about the 10 unit mark because we would like to be higher for the bowl season but we will take it. If you listened to us, you made money and that is what matters most to us. Straight Cash Homey!!!!!

We have 9 picks for you this week but we do not have an Eva Mendes bet. Also, since we know you like it, we are going to put in as much hot tail as we can!!! Lastly, we looked at every single game this weekend so if you want our opinion or any stats or lines please let us know by leaving us a comment on this blog or emailing us directly at rpjsyndicate@gmail.com.

The Hot Dirty Girl Games. Basically we are jumping on the two Florida teams nobody talks about….Central Florida and Florida International. The Hot Dirty Girl Game means these are chicks nobody is thinking about. They are not the South Beach hotties or Miami models, they are simply hot, probably dirty and we love them!!!!!

miss_hoot2.jpg

Boobs and camel toe…Only in a Hooters Girl competition.

Game 1 – Tulsa at Central Florida (-7.5) – We know some people are going to jump on Tulsa but we thought this line was too low. Check out Central Florida’s games sine they lost to South Florida.

Beat Tulsa 44-23 (yeah that is right, they beat them up once already)
Beat Southern Miss 34-17
Beat Marshall 47-13
Beat UAB 45-31
Beat SMU 49-20
Beat UTEP 36-20

Then throw in the fact that Central Florida is undefeated at home this season and you have to like this game. The line opened at 6.5 and we got it at 7.5 and we are not concerned. Check out the against the spread numbers:

Tulsa
Golden Hurricane are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games as a road underdog of 3.5-10.0.
Golden Hurricane are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up win.
Golden Hurricane are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 conference games.
Golden Hurricane are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on grass.
Golden Hurricane are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games.
Golden Hurricane are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
Golden Hurricane are 1-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Golden Hurricane are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss.
Golden Hurricane are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

Central Florida
Knights are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on grass.
Knights are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games.
Knights are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games.

We love Central Florida in this game as they throw some extra dirty on this one!!!! Take Central Florida to win and cover!!!

Game 2 – North Texas at Florida International (+2.5) – This one is going to be a pretty surprising pick but we have to do it. Lets take a look at the ATS numbers first:

North Texas
Mean Green are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games on turf.
Mean Green are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite.
Mean Green are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win.

Florida International
Nothing to speak of

That is right….Florida International has nothing good to speak of. North Texas is favored statistically across the board accept for one key area….They can not stop the run compared to Florida International and this little stat tells us that Florida International will cover and possibly win. North Texas is playing for nothing and Florida International is playing for an important first win on the season. We are taking Florida International to cover!!!

Game 3 – Army at Navy (-14) – The Tomb Raider Game. Basically we wanted to show support for our troops by showing you a picture of one of the hottest chicks in the world with a gun. Enjoy!

angelina-jolie-pic-37.jpg

Navy runs the ball and runs it well, almost 340 yards per game and Army gives up almost 230 yards per game. Navy’s defense is bad but not as bad as Army’ and Army has a terrible offense as well…not as bad as Notre Dame’s but it is putrid. Check out the ATS numbers:

Army
Black Knights are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games as an underdog.
Black Knights are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in December.
Black Knights are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Black Knights are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a bye week.

Navy
Midshipmen are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in December.
Midshipmen are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games as a favorite.
Midshipmen are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 neutral site games.
Midshipmen are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games following a bye week.
Midshipmen are 42-20-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.

Then throw in the fact that the favorite is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the Black Knights are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings and you have to love Navy. We almost threw this in as an Eva Mendes bet but we could not pull the trigger in a rivalry game. Take Navy to win and cover!!!!

Game 4 – UCLA at USC (-20) – Murder Game Number 2. We picked the USC/Arizona State game perfectly. USC is on fire right now and beat the living piss out of ASU and left ASU’s QB bloody and in pain. We think this week will be more of a beatdown. It is a revenge game for USC. USC lost last year to UCLA and lost a chance to beat the crap out of Ohio State in the National Championship Game. Check out this clip form last week to see and feel the bloodiness.

Here are the ATS numbers for you:

UCLA
Bruins are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
Bruins are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Southern California.

USC
Trojans are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite.
Trojans are 6-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Trojans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
Trojans are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
Trojans are 26-11 ATS in their last 37 home games.
Trojans are 25-11 ATS in their last 36 games as a home favorite.
Trojans are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games on grass.

We think USC is the best team in the country right now. The only reason Vegas would set this line this high is because all of the money is picking UCLA and Vegas thinks USC wins by 21 points or more. In addition, UCLA is terrible in the Coliseum and has no offense and we think the revenge factor will be too much for them to overcome. USC wins easily, with a lot of blood and they might actually kill a UCLA player on the field this time around. They came close in Arizona but might get the job done this time. USC wins big and covers!!!

Game 5 – Florida Atlantic at Troy (-15) – The Little Trojans Bowl. the Trojans name is hot. USC is beating people’s asses and Troy is 8 and 2 against the spread on the season. So as a reward our Little Troy Trojans get linked up with the perfect chick ass….a pic from our girl Keyra. Google this chick if you have never seen her ass and videos.

keyra-ass.jpg

Ay Carumba!!! Gotta love it!!! Here are the ATS numbers:

Florida Atlantic
Owls are 3-9 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Owls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win.
Owls are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games as a road underdog.
Owls are 2-11 ATS in their last 13 games as an underdog of 10.5 or greater.
Owls are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
Owls are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog of 10.5 or greater.

Troy
Trojans are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win.
Trojans are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points.
Trojans are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game.
Trojans are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.
Trojans are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game.
Trojans are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.
Trojans are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.
Trojans are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games.
Trojans are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 conference games.
Trojans are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite.
Trojans are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
Trojans are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games on grass.
Trojans are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games overall.
Trojans are 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Trojans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.
Trojans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite.
Trojans are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite of 10.5 or greater.

Got it? Troy Trojans represent just like the USC Trojans and lays a beat down. They will reward us for that Keyra ass shot. Troy wins and covers easily!!!

Game 6 – Oregon St. at Oregon (pick em) – Could we really pick this game without showing some authentic Beaver. We did not think so.

oregon-st-beavers.jpg

Oregon is probably going to end this season like they did last year by losing their last few games and getting blown out in a bowl game once the team realizes they have no chance. We feel bad for them but sympathy does not put cash in our pockets. This game opened as a pick em because Autzen is a brutal place to play and Oregon State has not faired well there the last few times. Dennis Dixon is out for the season and Brady Leaf is doubtful. When you are relying on Brady Leaf you know you are in trouble. Here are the ATS numbers:

Oregon St.
Beavers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games on turf.
Beavers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games.
Beavers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Beavers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in December.
Beavers are 36-17 ATS in their last 53 games following a ATS win.

Oregon
Ducks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game.
Ducks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in December.

Mrs. Flash Flash is picking Oregon. Once again she is picking against us. She is 1-3 on the season and is picking the Ducks because she played touch football in Autzen stadium three Summers ago. Sorry to the Mrs. but you will be wrong again and lose your 4th straight. Oregon State has won two in a row since losing to USC and Oregon has lost two in a row with Dixon out and were shut out by a terrible UCLA team last week. We think Oregon State snaps their streak in Eugene. Take Oregon State to win!!!

Game 7 – Pittsburgh at West Virginia (-28.5) – The Whack Bowl. You probably did not see comments from USC TE Fred Davis this week but he was talking about the prospect of West Virginia facing Missouri for the national championship game. USC tight end Fred Davis is no fan of the current BCS title-game matchup. “Missouri-West Virginia? I don’t like that,’’ Davis said. “That’s a whack bowl game. But I think Oklahoma will beat Missouri anyways.” Yes we are bitter USC blew two games this year and is not playing for a BCS title. We think they have the best team. Alright enough bitching lets see some hot chicks.

twins.jpg

We are only looking at one ATS number this week. The Mountaineers are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS win. So what do you do with this game. West Virginia knows they need to win and they play for the national title. PITT is not that good. West Virginia has been explosive. We think this is a combo of two things. First is the Nebraska syndrome. The Nebraska Syndrome was what Tom Osborne used to do at Nebraska. For home games he would not blow teams out because he would play 2nd, 3rd, 4th string etc… so everybody got a chance to play in front of their family and boosters. We think this has Nebraska Syndrome written all over it. The second thing is one of our weird stats that you just need to trust us on and yes we know we went 0-2 the last time we told you about it but we are going to keep riding the percentages. So we think West Virginia will win but will not be able to cover. Take PITT for the cover!!!

Game 8 – Virginia Tech at Boston College (+4.5) – The Thanks for Trying Game. Jessica Simpson tried at her marriage, tried at an acting career and tried to look smart. Well thanks for trying Miss Simpson. You are hot as hell though.

jessica_simpson_hot_and_wet.jpg

So we want to thank Virginia Tech for trying. They tried damn hard to beat BC last time and they are trying really hard now to impress down the stretch. Well we want to thank them for trying cause trying does not put money in our pockets. We do not know one expert that is giving BC a chance in this game. BC was outplayed down in Blacksburg for 57 minutes but pulled out the win and that was on the road. The experts say Virginia Tech has been playing like one of the best teams in the country and there are even some fools lobbying for them to play in the national championship game. Please!!! Boston College has shown that they get the job done and win football games. We love that they are the underdog and are getting 4.5 points. Take a look at the ATS numbers:

Virginia Tech
Hokies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in December.

Boston College
Eagles are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0.
Eagles are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in December.
Eagles are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games as an underdog.
Eagles are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS loss.
Eagles are 35-17 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

Heads up the Hokies are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 meetings and the underdog is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings. We are not sure BC will win but we think this game will be 3 points or less in margin of victory. BC is not getting any respect and Va Tech is the hot pick this week. Take BC to cover!!!

Game 9 – Tennessee at LSU (-7.5) – The Pamela Anderson Game. What do we know about Pam Anderson…She is hot, she has a sick body and she has Hep C and can literally kill you.

pamela_anderson_google.jpg

Well Les Miles has a nice coaching pedigree, he has top 3 talent on his team easily, he has one of the best defense in the country but his decision to puruse the Michigan job killed LSU this year. We feel sorry for LSU fans this week. Les Miles is screwing them just like he did to Oklahoma State back in 2004. The nation knows he is going to interview for the Michigan job after the SEC championship game and will likely take that position. So why the hell is he still coaching the Tigers. It is a shame because with a serious coach that is fighting for his own job and for his team, there is no way they lose at home to Arkansas. As we explained last week, Les Miles is a dud when is knows he is going to leave a team… he lost his last regular season game and the bowl game for Oklahoma State in 2004 and now he loses to Arkansas, will probably lose to Tennessee and then bail on the Tigers for Michigan. Shame on you Les Miles. Take a look at the ATS numbers:

Tennessee
Volunteers are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Volunteers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
Volunteers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game.
Volunteers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.
Volunteers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 conference games.

LSU
Tigers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
Tigers are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as a favorite.
Tigers are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
Tigers are 1-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss.
Tigers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 conference games.
Tigers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.

LSU is simply getting worse on Defense and with Les Miles leaving we think LSU has little to no chance of winning this game. We are not advising the moneyline and we are taking Tennessee and the points. We were right last week against Arkansas and we will be right this week. Bet the Vols!!!

Getting back to Keyra…if you have not witnessed one of her videos you have to check this out. We felt like we needed to leave you with this heading into bowl season. This ass certainly psyches us up. You might need to register with youtube but it is worth it. Trust us.

NBA PICKS: 11/29/07

3-2 last night finally got us a winning night. Baby steps. Baby steps. Our season record stands at 43-46-1. Inching closer to .500. There are three games tonight. We like one of them. Here it is:

Rockets -1.5 @ Warriors: Both teams played last night, so they will be travelling. Houston looked impressive last night against the Suns. The Warriors pulled a win out of their hats against the Kings. We think the Rockets are playing better. They have Yao in the middle. They will win the board battle and they have enough scorers to win by 2. Take the Rockets -1.5.

As always, good luck with your picks.

NFL WEEK 13 PICKS: THURSDAY NIGHT DELIGHT!!!!!

Greetings!!!! Week 13 is already upon us and we are ready to roll. We LOVE this time of year-NFL starts having games during the week and the college football season is heating up towards Bowl season!! That spells cha-ching time for the Syndicate!!!

Despite a terrible 4-6 Week 12, our season record is 40-28-1. That is still 58%. Very good, but it is still not up to our standards. We will get our minds right and get that percentage up to Syndicate standards. Having Thursday games makes us drool at the prospect of improving our record. That said, we love Thursday’s game. Not only that, we are giving you a 2-for-1 deal. Here’s our take:

Packers @ Cowboys -7; OVER/UNDER 51.5: A Clash of the Titans in the NFC. We checked our records and cannot find any other time in NFL history that two 10-1 teams met to duke it out. Pretty amazing. This seems like a throw back to the early-mid ’90’s when Favre’s Packers used to battle the Triplets’ Cowboys. Much has changed since those days, but the one amazing thing that remains is that Favre is still there. And still gunnin’.

Favre brings his Pack back to Big D for the first time since 1999. And they are hot! Check out these ATS numbers:

  • Packers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an outright win.
  • Packers are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog.
  • Packers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
  • Packers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
  • Packers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in November.
  • Packers are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog.
  • Packers are 8-0-1 ATS in their last 9 road games.
  • Packers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.
  • Packers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win.
  • Packers are 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall.
  • Packers are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
  • Packers are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. NFC.
  • Packers are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog of 3.5-10.0.
  • Packers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0.
  • Looks damn impressive to us. Unstoppable, right? Slow down, gym shoe. Pump your breaks a little. Favre’s Pack are riding high into Bid D to face a Cowboys team that is loaded on offense and nearly as hot as the Pack. Check out their ATS numbers:

  • Cowboys are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC.
  • Cowboys are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in November.
  • Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite.
  • Cowboys are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an outright win of more than 14 points.
  • Cowboys are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.
  • Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.
  • Cowboys are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
  • Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite.
  • Seems pretty even to us. So what gives? The key to answering that question is simple-Vegas knows. Seriously. Vegas knows. We cannot write or say that enough. Vegas knows all. There is one reason why there are massive replicas of the Eiffel Tower, NYC and the Pyramids in the middle of the Nevada desert-Vegas knows.

    Applying this mantra to this game, we reach the question of “why did Vegas set the line where it did?” This line opened at 6.5 and is now 7. When we first saw this line, we screamed “jump on the Pack!!’ Mortgage our houses. Cash in our 401K’s. Rob a bank. Put all the proceeds on the Pack. After-all, how can a team as dominate as the Packers have been not cover 6.5-7 points?!?!? But, that is exactly the trap. Again, Vegas knows. It knows the teams better than anyone at ESPN. More importantly, it knows the gambling public better than anything. That is what they do. They know how to get our money.

    There is a reason why this line is where it is. It is high because Vegas wants everyone to take the Pack, and they know the Cowboys should win by more than a TD. Don’t believe us? Just before we wrote this post, we researched where all the money in Vegas is heading. At first glance, it seems that the public is even: 51% of the bets are on the Cowboys while 49% on the Pack. However, look closer. 94% of the money is on the Pack. 94%!!!!!

    What do you take from that? It is simple-even after 94% of the money has been placed on the Pack, Vegas has INCREASED the line. Typically, if Vegas gets a line wrong, they will drop it if money heavily favors one team. They do this to get people to put more money on the other team to draw out as much action as they can. 94% is pretty damn heavy on one team, but what did Vegas do? They INCREASED the line, not decreasing it to account for the heavy Pack action. Now that you know that Vegas knows, the only conclusion you can reach from this is that Vegas knows the Boys will win big, but they want you to keep dumping money on the Pack. Don’t fall for their trap!!!! We aren’t!! We are taking the Boys -7.

    Now for the 2-for-1 part of our deal. The knock against the Boys all season is their D. Specifically, their pass D. It ranks 21st in the NFL. Hardly what you would think from a 10-1 team.  Favre will exploit this. We think big. We think the Boys win, but it will be high scoring. We are taking the OVER 51.5.

    There’s our start to NFL Week 13. There will be more picks. Check back with us this weekend. Also, check out our NCAA picks.

    As always, good luck with your picks. We hope we are helpful.

    NCAA Winning Hoops Picks: ACC-Big 10 Challenge – Day 2 with extra game

    If at first you don’t succeed, bet against the Big 10 at all costs. Well, I stunk worse than the Big 10 last night (0-5 night, now 4-7 on the season and down 2 units) …time to get back on the horse. Picks in bold:

    NC St. (+9) over MSU
    BC (-3) over Michigan
    Maryland (-2.5) over Illinois
    UNC (-5.5) over Ohio St.
    Penn St. (-1.5) over V Tech

    I will now go back to writing “I will never bet on Big 10 teams” on the blackboard 500 times…

    The extra game for tonight is Seton Hall giving 8.5 against Princeton. Princeton sucks and the hall will speed it up and score a lot of points. Seton Hall wins and covers.

    NBA PICKS: 11/28/07

    Another 1-2 night!! I think we should change our name to 1-2 we hit it so much. Our season record is 40-44-1. It is a joke. We know. We will rebound. Here are picks tonight:

    Cavs @ Pistons -8.5: This is a Vegas trap game. With the way the Cavs have been playing, this spread should be no where near this high. If anything, the Pistons should be the dog. That said, we are taking the Pistons. Take the Pistons -8.5.

    Magic -8.5 @ Sonics: Magic are rested. They will roll. Take the Magic -8.5.

    Jazz @ Sixers +6.5: The Jazz are a terrible road team ATS. We like the Sixers to cover. Take the Sixers +6.5.

    Grizzles +6.5 @ Raptors: We are going against intuition here. We typically take the Raptors. However, we think the Grizzlies will cover. Take the Grizz +6.5.

    Warriors -1.5 @ Kings: Very close match-up. Despite the Kings being great dogs at home, we think the Warriors end their trend of covers. Take the Warriors -1.5.

    Good luck.

    Greetings. We look to get off the schneid tonight after another terrible 1-2 night. We feel like the Bengals of NBA picking!!! Our season record is 39-42-1. No need to tell us how bad it is. We have been in ruts like this before. We will rebound. Here is what we like tonight:

    Celtics -4 @ Cavs: This line has been going up throughout the day. Easy to understand why-the Celtics should roll. They are coming off of 2 full days of rest. The two other times they have done that this year (Pacers & Warriors) they are 2-0 ATS. In those two games they beat their opponents by an average of 19 points. They may not do that much damage to the Cavs on the road tonight, but they can cover 4. This is a Ike Turner Game (5 X your normal bet) for us. We actually added a little more stank to it for us. Take the Celtics Ike Style -4.

    Grizzlies + 6 @ Nets: The Nets finally got Vinsanity back, and they are playing much better since his return to the line-up. They should win this game, but we think the Grizz will keep it closer than 6. Take the Grizzlies +6.

    Bobcats +7 @ Heat: The Heat are improving day by day with the return of Flash. However, they are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 against the NBA Southeast. That stat screams they that they are due to cover. However, there are a whole lot more ATS numbers that back-up the fact that they will not cover tonight either. The Bobcats have a HUGE mismatch at PG. That is telling-Felton can handle the rock enough to keep this close. We think 7 points is just too much. Take the Bobcats +7.

    That is our action on NBA for the night. Good luck with your picks.

    Runny & Flash

    NCAA Winning Hoops Picks: ACC-Big 10 Challenge

    Here are my ACC- Big 10 challenge picks…the spreads alone show how bad the Big 10 is this year. The ACC is actually in a rebuilding year, too, but the bottom tier teams in the Big 10 are brutal. Plus, whoever set the matchups screwed up. How is Indiana not playing Clemson instead of the way it is now? Picks in bold below:

    Indiana (- 10) over Georgia Tech
    Wisconsin (+9) over Duke
    Clemson (-10) over Purdue
    Minnesota (+8) over Florida St.
    Northwestern (+15) over UVA

    Sincerely,

    Maury the Wig

    P.S. I am 4-2 and up 3 units writing for RPJ Syndicate

    NBA PICKS: 11/26/07

    Greetings. Our Turkey Day weekend picks were not kind to us at all. But, this is a new week and we are forever the optimists. Our season records stands at 38-40-1. We like 3 games tonight. Here we go:

    Suns -5 @ Warriors: This game scares us somewhat given that it is a low spread and the Suns are on the road. Also, the Suns have been hit-or-miss ATS all season. The fact remains that they are loaded with scorers. The Suns have been terrible ATS in their last head-to-head meetings (4-6 in their last 10). However, we think they match-up well and will cover. Take the Suns -5.

    Magic -5 @ Blazers: The Blazers were our cover horses last season. Losing Randolph and Oden have hurt them this year. They have not been consistent ATS. The Magic have been ridiculously hot. The ATS numbers lean slightly towards the Blazers (Magic are 3-9-2 ATS in their last 14 head-to-head match-ups, but they are 13-3-2 in their last 18 road games and the Blazers are 7-22 ATS in their last 29 Monday games, and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games), but this is not the same Blazers team. This is also a much better Magic squad. The Magic are loaded and hot. Take advantage. Take the Magic -5.

    Jazz -5 @ Knicks: This game is a clean sweep game. The Jazz beat them (soundly) in all the ATS  numbers. They are rested and loaded. The Knicks ended their losing streak Saturday against the Bulls. The Bulls are not good though. The Jazz roll. Take the Jazz -5.

    Good luck.

    NFL WEEK 12 PICKS

    Greeting and Happy Turkey Day! Hope your holiday went well. Our’s did-great food, great family, great friends and 2-1 on our NFL picks (3-1 if you count the USC beatdown at ASU)!! Brings our record to 36-22-1. That is 62%!! We are gtting better and hope to have the record above 65% ASAP. Here are our picks for Sunday’s action:

    Titans @ Bengals +1.5: The Titans looked terrible on Monday against a mediocre Broncos team. The Bengals have looked bad all season. What will give? The ATS numbers are pretty even. We can’t believe we are saying this, but we like Cinncy. Take the Bungles +1.5.

    Broncos +2 @ Bears: The Broncos looked great last Monday at home. The Bears are a joke. Grossman is a mistake at QB. Shannahan will bring the pressure against him, forcing the typical Grossman mistakes. The Bears D is no where near what it used to be. We like the Broncos to cover and porbably win outright. Take the Broncos +2.

    Seahawks @ Rams +3: The Rams seem to have righted their ship. They are getting their guys back from injury, and they are playing much better. The Seahawks are playing better as well. However, we think the ‘Hawks are not as good as they think. Also, the underdog is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 head-to-head meetings. That is enough for us. This is too many points to give the Rams. Take the Rams +3.

    49ers @ Cardinals -10.5: This ia a lot of points to give, but the 49ers are a joke. The Cards are playing well right now and will look to avenge their week 1 loss in SanFran. We think they roll here. Take the Cards -10.5.

    Ravens +9 @ Chargers: The Chargers are a joke. What the heck happened to this team?!?!?!?!? Norv? Did they believe the hype? Who knows. The Ravens are pretty freakin’ bad, too. However, in a battle of two terrible teams, be like the points. Even on the road. Take the Ravens +9.

    Eagles @ Patriots -24; Over/Under 50.5: You read that right-“-24”!!!!!! Insane amount of points to give in a NFL game. We checked our records and cannot find a line this high for NFL in the past 25 years. However, we think it is legit and not low enough. The Eagles are a debacle. The Pats have shown their goal is to run up the score. 24 points is a lot to give, but we think they win this game by 30. Take the Pats -24. Also, the Pats will hang 50 points on their own. Take the Over 50.5.

    Good luck.
