Feelin' Right

We're off to a good start this week thanks to a shock of all shocks with a TOTALS play coming in last night. It's all good, but let's see if we can make good better.



THE NBA (4-3 last night and 11-5 so far for the week)



SU WINNERS (4-3 last night and 12-4 so far for the week)

Celtics, THUNDER and KINGS



TOTALS (5-2 last night and 12-4 so far for the week)

OVERS - Celtics/76ERS (184 1/2) and Nuggets/KINGS (233)

UNDER - Lakers/THUNDER (214)



BUTTA (no play last night and 1-0 so far for the week)

Celtics (-2 1/2) over 76ERS - Sometimes things look a little too good to be true, and you all know the old saying about a situation like that. It gets me thinking though and makes me wonder what I'm missing with this matchup. These 2 teams are going in opposite directions, and I totally expected to see a 6 or 7 hung on the Celts for this game. That makes this a bargain. Celtics 102, 76ERS 86




1. THUNDER (-8) over Lakers - Looking at the numbers I have for this game, it sure looks like a Thunder blowout. The Lakers are looking like they've turned the corner, but we've seen that before already this season. OkC is a team that rolls with a lot more gusto when they're at home, so I think the Lakers hit a brick wall tonight. THUNDER 115, Lakers 95

2. KINGS (+5) vs. Nuggets - I don't agree with my projection for this game, but the Nugs style of play doesn't lend itself to great success when in b2b situations. That's evidenced by the fact that Denver, when closing a b2b with a road game, is only 3-7 SU. KINGS 133, Nuggets 121



COLLEGE HOOPS (3-0 ATS/SU/TOTALS last night and 8-4/10-2/6-6 so far for the week)



BUTTA (1-0 last night and so far for the week)

PARLAY: Marquette (-300) over RUTGERS and UNLV (-330) over Boise St. - I'd feel a lot better about laying (-7) with Marquette if I felt better about the (-7 1/2) hung on UNLV. I don't know if that makes any sense to you, but it makes plenty to me. That's all that matters. Marquette has already clinched one of the double byes for the conference tourney next week, but they also still have an outside shot to be regular season champs. It also doesn't hurt their cause that Rutgers isn't any good. The Knights gave their best shot to Georgetown on Saturday and still came up short in OT, so I think they'll return more to form tonight. With UNLV, they look like a team that's peaking at the right time. Boise St. is trying to play their way into The Madness, and a win here tonight would all but secure their spot. The Broncs are a terrible road team though. The reason I don't like the (-7 1/2) hung on the Rebs? They're winning games (16-1 SU at home so far this season), but they've gone only 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games on their home floor.
