[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Celtics at Bulls Predictions[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]By Alan Matthews[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]It’s the second week in a row I feature the Boston Celtics on the Thursday NBA on TNT game of the night – the Celtics cost me last week when they went off as three-point home favorites against a Los Angeles Lakers team that was terrible on the road. So, of course, I went with the Cs minus the points last Thursday, only to see the Lakers win straight up. But I ended that losing streak at one by taking L.A. -5.5 for Tuesday’s home game with the Hawks, and the Lakers won by eight. [/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Interestingly, there are three games total on Thursday night and there wasn’t an opening line on any of them as of this writing. Welcome to the land of back-to-backs and nagging injuries! Of the six teams in action on Thursday, only Chicago didn’t play the night before. But there’s no line on Celtics-Bulls thanks to Derrick Rose’s uncertain status (see below). Meanwhile, the Nets visit the Pacers in the one non-TNT game and both play Wednesday night, plus the injury status of Indiana’s Danny Granger is up in the air. And the Clippers visit the Blazers in the TNT nightcap, with both in action on Wednesday and the status of Portland star LaMarcus Aldridge unclear for Thursday (he sat out Wednesday).[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]How the Teams Enter[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Entering Wednesday’s home game with Detroit, which should be a sure win, the C’s had lost two of three. That lone win was over these Bulls on Sunday in Beantown. Rose sat out with his back spasms and his Boston point guard counterpart Rajon Rondo went crazy. [/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]The ironic thing is the Bulls’ defense has been better when backup C.J. Watson has filled in, but, obviously, offensively there is no comparison. Thus, Rondo didn’t have to work very hard on the defensive end on Sunday and had a triple-double: 32 points (season high), 15 assists (season high) and 10 rebounds in one of the best games of the season by any player in Boston’s 95-91 win. The Celtics shot nearly 12 percent better from the field and outrebounded the Bulls – that’s notable considering Boston is No. 29 in rebounding and the Bulls No. 2. It was only Chicago’s sixth loss in 20 road games.[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]The Bulls bounced back from that effort with a 121-115 home win over the defensively-inept Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, again without Rose. Luol Deng had 23 points and a career-high 11 assists for Chicago, which improved to 10-1 at home. It was Chicago’s season high in points scored (no surprise since the Kings are last in defense) and in points allowed. But that was one of those sandwich letdown games in between back-to-backs with these Celtics. The victory clinched the Eastern Conference coaching spot at the All-Star Game for the Bulls' Tom Thibodeau.[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Betting Story Lines[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Obviously the big story is if Rose will play. He saw a specialist on Monday for his back, and the Bulls breathed a massive sigh of relief when there was no structural damage. It’s muscular and, thus, should get better with treatment. Between the bad back and a problem with his left big toe, Rose has missed eight games this season after sitting out six over his first three years. Rose said he was feeling better Tuesday. He could get a pain-killing injection, but the NBA MVP has a fear of needles.[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]I have no doubt Rose wants to play after what Rondo did to Chicago on Sunday, but it’s going to be a group decision between Rose, Thibodeau and the team’s medical staff. The Bulls don’t leave home again before next weekend’s All-Star Game (vs. Nets, Hawks and Bucks after this one), so it’s not out of the question that Thibodeau would rather just rest Rose until the first game post-break on Feb. 28 vs. New Orleans. Plus, then Thibs wouldn’t have to play Rose in the All-Star Game. But Rose is likely too determined to get on the court to sit out that long. Chicago will remain without shooting Richard Hamilton until after the break.[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]As for Boston, it won’t have power forward Brandon Bass until after the break – he has been a pleasant surprise after coming over from Orlando for Glen Davis. Keep an eye on Kevin Garnett’s status tonight. He has a hip issue and sat out Wednesday against the Pistons. The injury-prone Garnett amazingly had been the only Celtics starter to play in every game this year prior to Wednesday.[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]This is the third of four meetings this season and first in Chicago. Other than Sunday’s result, the Bulls won, 88-79, in Boston on Jan. 13. Rose played in that one and had 25 points and seven assists. The Bulls were up 20 midway through the third quarter before nearly blowing the lead. Chicago won both home games with Boston a season ago, each by double figures. [/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Betting Odds and Key Trends[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Chicago will open as the favorite whether Rose plays or not, but he’s good for up to a four-point line movement. When these two played Sunday in Boston, Chicago closed at -1 when it was clear Rose was sitting out. I would expect the Bulls to be about 2.5-3-point favorites if Rose sits and 5.5-6-points favorites if he plays.[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]The Celtics (all stats entering Wednesday) are 13-14 ATS overall and 5-4 on road. The Bulls are 18-13 ATS overall and 5-6 at home. ‘Over/under’ records: BOS 10-14-3, CHI 16-14-1. The Celtics are 1-4 ATS in past five road games vs. teams with winning home record. The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in past five at home. The home team has covered in four of the past five meetings.[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Betting Predictions[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]I like the Bulls here regardless of whether Rose plays – the veteran Celtics will have tired legs,. Chicago is too proud a team and too good defensively to let Rondo go haywire again. Plus, Thibodeau will have them focused after Sunday’s loss and Tuesday’s terrible defensive effort. [/FONT]

Thursday’s betting tips: Sliding Blackhawks deny rumors

Who’s hot

NBA: Portland is 4-1 against the spread in its last five meetings with the L.A. Clippers.

NBA: The under is 9-4-1 in Indiana’s last 14 home games.

NHL: The New York Rangers are 18-6 in its last 24 home games.

NHL: The over is 23-10 in Tampa Bay’s last 33.

NCAAB: Michigan State has covered the number in six straight home games.

NCAAB: The over is 10-2 in the last 12 meetings between Duke and NC State.

Who’s not

NBA: New Jersey is 1-8 against the spread in its last nine meetings with Indiana.

NBA: Chicago is 1-4 against the spread in its last five home games.

NHL: Chicago has lost nine straight overall and 11 consecutive road games.

NHL: Calgary is 6-14 in its last 20 games as an underdog.

NCAAB: Virginia Tech is 1-10 against the spread in its last 11.

NCAAB: Santa Clara is 3-10 against the number in its last 13 overall.

Key stat

18.2 – The N.C. State Wolfpack have dropped 13 consecutive games at Cameron Indoor Stadium against Duke, losing by an average of 18.2 points per game. The Wolfpack has won three of its last five, but has covered just once over that span. N.C. State is a 10-point underdog Thursday.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Danny Granger, Indiana Pacers – Granger sprained his left ankle in Tuesday’s game and didn’t play in Wednesday’s contest against the Cavs. He’s considered questionable for Thursday’s game, when the Pacers finish off this stretch of three games in three nights. Granger leads the team averaging 18.0 points per game.

Game of the day

Wisconsin Badgers at Michigan State Spartans (-6, 114)

Notable quotable

"We're not focused on goaltending. We're really not. I know there's a lot of talk about that, but internally, we have to focus on the guys we have, and turning it around from within." – Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman on the rumors that the team is looking for goaltending help ahead of the trade deadline. The Blackhawks have a collective 4.22 goals against average during their nine-game losing skid with Ray Emery and Corey Crawford splitting time between the pipes. The Hawks have yet to name a starting goalie for Thursday’s road game against the Rangers. Chicago is set as a +145 underdog.

Notes and tips

Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the L.A. Clippers. Aldridge, who landed on Trevor Booker's foot Tuesday, was helped off the floor and taken to the locker room less than two minutes into the first quarter. Initial X-rays on his ankle came back negative although he is expected to undergo additional tests. The second overall pick of the 2006 draft, Aldridge entered the game averaging 23.3 points and 8.6 rebounds for Portland.

Rumors are beginning to heat up with the NHL trade deadline fast approaching. The Columbus Blue Jackets are in talks with a number of teams about moving captain Rick Nash. Some of the major players are said to be the Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks, New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. Meanwhile, Minnesota Wild defenseman Marek Zidlicky has reportedly waived his no-trade clause to join the New Jersey Devils. However, no deal was officially in place as of Wednesday evening.

Tennessee junior forward Kenny Hill was suspended from the team indefinitely. Volunteers coach Cuonzo Martin said the punishment was due to “conduct detrimental to the team.” Hill has started 16 of 25 games this season for Tennessee (13-12, 5-5 SEC), averaging 6.2 points and 4.5 rebounds. His suspension went into effect before Wednesday's game against Arkansas.

Game of the day: Wisconsin at Michigan State

Wisconsin Badgers at Michigan State Spartans (-6, 110)

THE STORY: When No. 17 Wisconsin and No. 8 Michigan State last met on Jan. 3, it produced one of the most controversial conclusions to a game this season. Considering the level both teams are playing at since, another dramatic ending could be in store.

The Badgers - who lost to the Spartans last month when Ryan Evans’ overtime 3-pointer was disallowed when officials discovered the stadium clock was two-tenths of a second behind the game clock, which had expired – have rebounded to go 7-2 since that game.

Michigan State is 15-0 at home this season and flying high after snapping No. 6 Ohio State’s 39-game home winning streak on Saturday.

TV: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN

ABOUT WISCONSIN (19-6, 8-4 Big Ten, 13-9 ATS): The Badgers’ top-scoring defense (50.3 points per game), along with their deliberate offensive style and strong foul shooting, has allowed them to go 19-0 in games when leading or tied with five minutes remaining and 5-1 in road conference games.

Wisconsin also commits just 8.8 turnovers per game – tied for the lowest mark in the nation. The Badgers lead the country in 3-point field goal defense (26.7 percent) and are second in field goal percentage defense (36.8).

Since coach Bo Ryan took over prior to the 2001-02 season, the team is 25-2 with six days of rest in between games, including 11 straight victories.

ABOUT MICHIGAN STATE (20-5, 9-3 Big Ten, 15-7 ATS): The Spartans are holding opponents to 37.4 percent shooting from the field - the lowest total in the Tom Izzo era – and enjoy the third-best rebounding margin in the country (plus 10.2).

Forward Draymond Green has led the team in rebounding in 20 of their 25 games, scoring in 11 and assists in seven.

While Wisconsin sets the standard in defending the 3-pointer for the season, Michigan State has defended it better than the Badgers in Big Ten play, allowing opponents to shoot 27.9 percent behind the arc.

TRENDS:

* Under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Michigan St.
* Home team is 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
* Badgers are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings in Michigan St.

TIP-INS:

1. The Spartans hold a 70-60 advantage in this series and have not lost to the Badgers in East Lansing since 2004.

2. In his last four meetings against Michigan State, Wisconsin guard Jordan Taylor has averaged 24.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists, including a season-high 28 points in the Jan. 3 contest.

3. Green needs two blocked shots and one steal to move into sole possession of second and fifth, respectively, on the Spartans’ all-time lists in each category.

Pick 'n' roll: Thursday's best NBA bets

Editor's note: With injuries littering Thursday's three-game slate, oddsmakers have yet to post lines for these matchups. Picks should be considered early leans.

Boston Celtics at Chicago Bulls (N/A)

The Chicago Bulls are expected to be without Derrick Rose for a fourth straight game Thursday, but so far at least, his teammates are sticking together in the MVP’s absence.

Chicago came away with a 121-115 win over the Sacramento Kings Tuesday, but couldn’t cash in as an 11-point favorite even though the Bulls had a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter.

“Missing Derrick, even though we’re winning games, it’s huge,” Luol Deng told reporters after scoring 23 points and dishing a career-high 11 assists. “He makes the game so much easier. When he’s not there, you’ve got to work extra.”

Bulls supports know all about it. They have watched their club go 1-2 against the number with Rose on the shelf and it doesn’t look like the superstar is about to return to the club anytime soon as he deals with back spasms.

Boston will likely be dealing with some injury concerns as well with Kevin Garnett banged up, but after the Celtics were pumped by Detroit Wednesday night, we’re looking at the home team here.

Pick: Bulls

New Jersey Nets at Indiana Pacers (N/A)

The Indiana Pacers hoped Danny Granger would be able to play Wednesday against Cleveland. He took the pregame warmup but sat out with a sprained ankle and Pacers missed him in a big way.

Indiana was held to just 38 points in the first half and shot only 36.8 percent from the floor as Cleveland ran away with a 98-87 victory when all was said and done.

The Pacers have now dropped seven straight against the number and you have to figure Granger, who leads the team scoring 18 points per game, will at least give it a go Thursday.

Meanwhile, New Jersey has lost eight in a row after Wednesday’s loss at home to Memphis. Outside of Deron Williams, there just isn’t too much to get excited about with this Nets team.

Pick: Pacers

College funds: Thursday's best NCAAB bets

North Carolina State Wolfpack at Duke Blue Devils (-10, 152)

Duke and North Carolina State rank first and second, respectively, in the ACC in field goal percentage and 3-point percentage. That offense has led the fourth-ranked Blue Devils into a fight for first place in the conference, while the Wolfpack lurks one game behind.

In order to close that gap, North Carolina State is going to have to snap a 13-game losing streak at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Duke has dominated the series in recent years, taking five of the last six straight up, the the clubs have split those games 3-3 against the spread.

The Blue Devils are coming off one of their better weeks of the season and may have found a stronger inside game to go along with its perimeter strength. Miles and Mason Plumlee each recorded a double-double in Saturday’s 73-55 victory over Maryland, with Miles’ 22 rebounds marking the highest total in coach Mike Krzyzewski’s 37-year career.

Combined with the outside quartet of Austin Rivers, Seth Curry, Andre Dawkins and Ryan Kelly, Duke is becoming more balanced offensively as the season wears on.

Pick: Over

Boston College Eagles at Maryland Terrapins (-9, N/A)

Maryland still has its eyes on reaching the NCAA Tournament, so the Terrapins can’t afford to slip up against one of the ACC’s bottom feeders.

Maryland has lost three of four outright, but is 11-3 at home and 4-1 against the spread in its last five overall. The Terps need to build some momentum for a schedule that features four teams with RPI rankings in the top 35 among the final six games.

Boston College appeared ready to turn the corner with a win over nationally ranked Florida State, but let Virginia Tech off the hook in overtime. The Eagles have lost seven of their last eight and haven’t won an ACC road game.

Still, they have covered the number in four straight.

The Eagles start four freshmen and transfer guard Matt Humphrey, who leads the team with 10.4 points per game. Boston College lives and dies by the 3-pointer as no team in the ACC has tried more.

The Eagles have made 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and the team’s goal is to make 10 treys per game. Freshman Ryan Anderson (9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds) is starting to develop his inside-outside game and Dennis Clifford, a 7-foot center who averages 9.2 points, has shown some nice moves around the basket.

Pick: Eagles

Ice picks: Thursday’s best NHL bets

Winnipeg Jets at Minnesota Wild (-120, 5)

If you haven’t noticed, the honeymoon is most certainly over for the Winnipeg Jets.

They got by earlier this season with a great home record while trying to stay competitive on their grueling road schedule that comes with the territory when playing out of the Eastern Conference.

But coach Claude Noel has had just about enough of his team’s inconsistent play.

"Am I discouraged? How do I look?" Noel told reporters after Tuesday’s 3-1 home loss to the New York Islanders. "I'm not real happy. I'm going to wake up and tomorrow's another day. I'll be relentless in my pursuit to get us where we want to go. These are hard moments because you have emotion that you're trying to keep under control."

The Jets wasted a chance to put some distance between them and the Islanders in the standings, so you have to believe they’ll put out a better effort in Minnesota.

Wild captain Mikko Koivu is back, but this looks like another lost year after Minnesota’s strong start.

Pick: Jets

Phoenix Coyotes at Los Angeles Kings (-135, 5)

Heading into Wednesday’s night’s action, the eighth-place Coyotes trailed the Los Angeles Kings by two points in the Western Conference, while Calgary, Colorado and Dallas were on the outside of the playoff picture looking in.

This is going to be a race that could easily go down to the last day of the season and you can expect the Coyotes and Kings to be in the middle of it.

No matter how it shakes down in the end, the Coyotes are the value bet Thursday. They limited the high-powered Canucks to just 22 shots on goal in a 2-1 shutout loss the last time they took the ice and have given up two or fewer goals in six of their last eight – winning six times over that stretch.

"We came up a point short," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett told reporters about the loss to Vancouver. "It was a solid road game. We didn't give up a ton of chances. We hung around the game, we just didn't get the two points. We have to be solid if we want to win, and tonight we were solid."

After backup Jason LaBarbera kept the Coyotes in the game versus the Canucks, expect starter Mike Smith to be back in the cage against Los Angeles.

Pick: Coyotes

NCAA Basketball Picks

Wisconsin at Michigan State

The Badgers look to take advantage of a Michigan State team that is 5-17-1 in its last 23 games as a favorite of 1 to 6 1/2 points. Wisconsin is the pick (+6 1/2) according to Dunkel, which has the Spartans favored by only 2 1/2. Dunkel Pick: Wisconsin (+6 1/2). Here are all of today's picks.
