Hornets vs Knicks
-6½ -110 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

Charlotte's Hornets star Dwight Howard  enters this game on fire ,  playing some of his best basketball in years with three 30-point games in the last 10 days, including a 33-point performance in a 129-117 win over his former team, the Atlanta Hawks. Tonight I'm betting he will be the catalyst behind what is a now an explosive Charlotte offense that can easily take advantage of a team that has lost 9 straight and 17 of their L/18 games overall and playing a lot of young players.

NEW YORK is 9-21 ATS  L/30 versus good ball handling teams - committing 14 or less  turnovers/game this season.

Knicks are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest.Knicks are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games.

NBA Favorites (CHARLOTTE) - off a win by 10 points or more over a division rival, tired team - playing their 3rd road game in 5 days are 29-5 ATS l/21 seasons for a  85% conversion rate for bettors.

One of Houston's three losses since Jan. 6 was a 115-113 setback at New Orleans on Jan. 26 and now the teams play again. Houston is off clinching the division title last time out, on Thursday and could now be in a letdown spot vs a side that actually matches up quite well against them as has been evident by recent meetings. I know New Orleans has struggled a bit over tier  last few games, but taking on this type of top tier side I'm betting will bring out the best them.  Pelicans are 22-8 ATS in their last 30 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600 and get the nod getting points here this evening.

Rockets are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in New Orleans.Underdog is 20-9-1 ATS in the last 30 meetings.

NBA Home teams vs. the money line (NEW ORLEANS) - after failing to cover the spread in 4 or more consecutive games, winning between 51% and 60% of their games on the season  are 44-9 SU L/5 seasons for a 83% conversion rate for bettors.

NCAA Tournament - Second Round - PPG Paints Arena - Pittsburgh, PA

Look for Dukes powerful inside-outside game  to go head to head in a back forth affair  against the dynamic guard play of the Rams in a game I have projected to go over the total.

DUKE is 11-1 OVER  L/12 after a non-conference game this season with a combined average score of 169.7 ppg scored.DUKE is 10-2 OVER in non-conference games this season with a combined average score of 164.8 ppg scored.

Over is 6-2 in Blue Devils last 8 neutral site games. Over is 7-3 in Rams last 10 neutral site games.

CBB teams where the total is between 140 and 149.5 points (RHODE ISLAND/DUKE) - in a game involving 2 up-tempo teams (60 shots/game or more) after 15+ games are 160-88 OVER L/5 seasons for a 65% conversion rate for bettors.

Portland States Head Coach Barret Peery  has shown his metal in his first year at the helm of the team, as the Vikings have registered a 20 win season, something many thought was improbable. This Portland State team is explosive offensively averaging 85.8 points per game on offense and are a dangerous opponent for teams like the  San Diego Toreros squad  that  averages just  70.1 points per game on offense which ranks them 264th nationally.

PORTLAND ST is 10-0 ATS in non-conference games this season.  Vikings are also 6-0 ATS in their last 6 vs. West Coast Conference.

CBB Home teams as a favorite or pick (SAN DIEGO) - average shooting team (42.5-45%) against an below average defensive team (47.5% or better ) after 15+ games are a long term negative out bet, as is evident by 171- 266 ATS mark over the L/21 seasons for a go against 61% conversion rate on the blind for bettors.

NCAA Tournament - Second Round - Intrust Bank Arena - Wichita, KS

 Former Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson who knows what to expect from a Big 10 opponent, has Houston back in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2010. The Cougars earned their first tournament win since 1984 with a 67-65 victory over San Diego State on Thursday night behind Rob Gray’s 39 points.Houston’s strength is its defense, which ranks 15th in the nation in KenPom’s efficiency metrics. The Cougars give opposing  teams fits as is evident by  having the eighth-worst opponent field-goal percentage when playing Houston.
I have said this time and time again. Houston is the most underrated team in this tournament, and are capable of going deep. I'm not about to  jump off their bandwagon now and recommend we take the points in a tilt vs a Michigan side that matchup very well against. Yes, I know Moe Wagner Wolverines big man is a top tier player, but Houston can make things irritating for the most gifted of athletes, and he is not immune to their constant pestering.

Cougars are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.Wolverines are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing less than 50 points in their previous game.

HC Sampson is 7-0 ATS  as a neutral court underdog or pick as the coach of HOUSTON. HOUSTON is 7-0 ATS L/7 after a game with 5 or less offensive rebounds over the last few seasons.

NCAA Tournament - Second Round - American Airlines Center - Dallas, TX

My CBB Hoops tourney Selections are based on my own power rankings and proprietary software projections . All factors are researched - relevant trends, line moves, coaching, current stats , historical archives, and injury updates are all considered in my final selections. In other words no stone is left unturned in my quest for a profitable outcome to my recommendations , whether they are sides or totals.

With 10 players averaging over 12 minutes per game Texas Tech is a team that is able to sustain a high level of intensity on the floor for an entire game and as they have plenty of able bodied reserves to sub in when a player gets fatigued. Their extremely dangerous and must be respected here as short favs vs a good but inconsistent Florida side, that , on the other hand, only has 6 players that average over 12 minutes per game and relies heavily on front-end production ,which I'm betting will see them fade as this game progresses as exhaustion and foul trouble come into play.

HC Beard is 20-7 ATS after allowing 30 points or less in the first half in 2 straight games in all games he has coached.

Experience & Awards

I have been wagering professionally on sports and horse racing for 30 years. 

My picks have been documented for 18 years.  I have earned numerous top 10 Basketball and Football finishes.  

My college football picks have profited in 16 of my last 17 seasons. In 2011 I went 68% for the year.

I was the 2009 NFL Handicapper of the Year in 2009  in a prestigous event.  I won the Ultimate Football NFL Championship in 2006.  In 2014 I overcame a slow start to finish 59-32 65%!  

I have been an NBA World Champion with 7 winning seasons the last 8 years.  

I also continue to beat the College Hoops book makers with a high volume attack on a yearly basis. 

Handicapping Approach

I have a firm belief in my systems.  There is not a sport I feel I can not beat.  

My handicapping can be best referred to as the 'The Smart Money Approach". I leave no stone unturned.  I have a large database of information and statistics.  I also take into consideration injuries, current and historical trends, and form.  I also factor in the weather, surface conditions, and line movement.

Sports Betting Is An Investment

Many gamblers offer causal explanations for long runs of good and bad performance.  The same is true of financial analysts.  The records of bettors and investors show the same variable successes and failures. 

Both investment opportunities show significant variables and both can give the investor an advantage.  You need to do the proper research to consider all the facts. If you do so a long term profit is more than attainable.

I think sports betting is even better than the stock market.  The investor/bettor has much more control over his funds. You can take a short break, and almost always know your bankroll has not been untouched.

In the markets you are leaving your 401K and other mutual investments in the hands of a volatile marketplace. Plus, you are being torched for huge handling fees by brokers on individual investments. These fees would make sports book managers drool.

I am not saying it is easy making a living from sports betting. But, the small percent who do consistently beat the books have a much better rate of return than that of any market investor!

This is the outlook I have on every wager I place in the sports wagering markets. I take my portfolio very seriously!

Money Management

To be a successful and profitable sports bettor you must always have a long term goal. Set that standard before you begin.  You need to set aside a fairly substantial bankroll.

If you want to be conservative you would wager no more than 1-2% of your bankroll per game.  No more than 3% on the best bets.

This might seem a little on the low side.  But, this is a long and turbulent battle with the books.  You will be happy that you practiced good money management and frugality.

Here are some additional guidelines I recommend.

1. Shop for your best possible lines (rogue lines) from the most reputable sources.

2. Stay disciplined and do not stray from recommended bankroll allocation on individual wagers. Chasing your wagers never a good idea.

3. Always keep in mind that your bankroll is your life line.  It must be treated the same way you would treat finances allocated for any business venture.

4. Buy off the hook on key numbers.

5. Understanding the importance and the art of middling.

6. Keep a record of all your wagers and results and use them as part of over all statistical data base.

These are some important factors that will help you in your quest for long term profits.

I leave you with a thought from the late great Jimmy the Greek. The house does not beat the player, it just gives him the opportunity to beat himself.

*Almost all selections have the same allocated bankroll %(which equals 1 betting unit). Strong selections will see our single game wagers doubled.  These plays are rated as GENERALS CLUB selections.
