Hammerdown

2/26/14 in NBA   |   pigskinfan   |   44 respect

Things got a little crazy yesterday, so I kinda messed things up and didn't get an "opening" posted.  There really wasn't all that much to say, and it's the same for today.  Another night.  Another win.  It's all good.

THE NBA  (4-3 ATS/5-2 SU/3-4 TOTALS last night and 12-8/12-6/9-11 so far for the week)

BUTTA  (no play last night and 2-0 so far for the week)
The numbers have been really tight over the last several days, and there's nothing jumping off the page at me again for tonight.  So, I'll take a pass.

ALL THE REST
Magic (-3, O213 1/2) 113 Hawks   93
76ERS 107 CELTICS (-2, U201 1/2)   98
       
Warriors   95 Pelicans (+7, O204 1/2) 100
BULLS (+3, O186 1/2)   96 MAVS 106
       
Lakers   98 Cavs (+14, O203 1/2) 105
GRIZZLIES (-11, O197) 109 THUNDER 107
       
Pistons (+11, O210 1/2) 102 Suns 108
SPURS 112 JAZZ (+2, O202) 108
       
Nets   96 Rockets (+6, O221) 119
BLAZERS (-3, U205) 102 CLIPPERS 114

NOTES:
---The Hawks have fallen off the table recently, but tonight might be a good chance for them to get on track as they face a Celtics team that's back home for the 1st time off a long west coast swing.

COLLEGE HOOPS  (3-9 ATS/5-7 SU/6-6 TOTALS last night and 12-16/16-11/11-17 so far for the week)
The overall numbers didn't do so well last night, but I got mine.  Once again, we learn that it's not about picking all the games right.  You just have to pick the right ones.

BUTTA  (1-0 last night and so far for the week)
1.  Baylor/TEXAS (O139) - Don't ask me.  This number is tiny, but I don't feel at all guilty about taking advantage.
2.  PARLAY:  W. Michigan (-290) over BALL ST. and LSU (-590) over Texas A&M - There is risk with W. Michigan.  They are tied for the MAC's top spot with an 11-3 mark, and they have their big showdown with the team they're tied with, Toledo, on Saturday.  But Ball St. is just awful at only 1-13 in conference play.  LSU is caught in that logjam with A&M in the middle of the SEC right now at 7-7 in conference play.  This is a huge game because it gives the winner a leg up on getting that 4th seed and a bye through to the 3rd day of the conference tourney.  With so much on the line, there's no way I lay the (-10) with the Tigers, but the Aggies, just like Mizzou last night, have had no success on the SEC road.

NOTES: 
---I just about added Iowa St. to tonight's parlay play, but I've backed off.  W. Virginia has had a rough go of it on the Big 12 minus 2 road this season, but they are still a very dangerous team.
---I wouldn't want to be S. Florida tonight.  UConn is one of those teams that I think could end up in the Final Four this year, and they're coming off a loss last time out.
---Cal could be in real trouble.  They were the squad that put an end to Arizona's bid for a perfect season up in Berkeley at the beginning of the month.  Now, it's revenge time for the Wildcats.

Looks like another busy day for me, and not just because of the schedule of games tonight.  I'm off to town for supplies.  Have a great Hump Day.  I'll see you tomorrow.
