Service Plays Tuesday 2/14/12

May 19, 2007
The Mod Team has created this Service Play sub-forum in order to supply an area for Rx Service Play Posters to expand upon their posting topics without creating a logjam in the main forum where the three principle threads are maintained..

Please remember, this forum is not here for regular posters who cap their own games to post ther daily plays. Please use our individual sport forums to post your plays. Professional cappers (those that sell plays) must remain in the Site Promotion Forum.

The will not tolerate posters that post false records of any services they track. Please be truthful if you decide to track a particular service.

Lastly The Rx Moderators are appealing to you our everyday posters to report any promotional threads or posts that are made by services or individual touts. No links or contact information to an individual service will be allowed. Just the name of the service. Please report any threads or posts that are promotional attempts by services and touts to use this forum to promote themselves..

Game of the day: Atlanta Hawks at L.A. Lakers

Atlanta Hawks at Los Angeles Lakers (-5, 178.5)

THE STORY: The last time the Atlanta Hawks went on a five-game trip (Jan. 23-31), they finished 4-1 for their best record since going 5-0 in 1968-69, their inaugural season. Atlanta begins another five-game journey Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers return home, where they are 11-2, after a 3-3 trip that ended with a 94-92 victory at Toronto. “We've just got to keep getting better little by little, and again, whether we won or lost (in Toronto), I thought we got a little better,” coach Mike Brown said.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, SportSouth (Hawks), FS West (Lakers)

LINE: Some books opened with L.A. set as a 5.5-point favorite at the open, but most shops were serving Lakers -5 Monday evening. The total is holding at 178.5 after opening a point higher.

ABOUT THE HAWKS (18-10): Maybe it’s a good thing the Hawks are getting out of town. They have lost four of five at home, and were trounced 107-87 by Miami on Sunday. “You're only as good as your last game,” power forward Josh Smith said. “And we were awful. So we have to take whatever people say about us and just use it as motivation.” Center Jason Collins (strained left elbow) will be evaluated Wednesday in Los Angeles. He is expected to miss two weeks.

ABOUT THE LAKERS (16-12): The Lakers’ six-game trip was supposed to determine just where this team might be headed. Instead it raised doubt and was inconclusive. So it is not surprising that the Lakers worked out free agent guard Gilbert Arenas, a three-time All-Star, on Sunday. “We are a poor road team, and that is what we need to turn around,” said Kobe Bryant, who scored the winner at Toronto. “If we could figure out a way to win on the road, our record would be much, much better. We are a very good home team.”

- The Hawks are 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games against the Lakers.
- The Lakers are 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games against the Eastern Conference.
- The under is 6-2 in Atlanta's last eight overall.


1. Atlanta has lost five consecutive games in Los Angeles, last winning there on Feb. 15, 2006.

2. Hawks guard Joe Johnson needs 13 points to reach 10,000 for his career.

3. Los Angeles has not lost a season series to the Hawks since 1978-79, losing three of four games. Tuesday’s game will be their only meeting this season.

PREDICTION: Lakers 97, Hawks 91

Tuesday’s betting tips: Wings out to make history vs. Stars

Who’s hot

NHL: The New York Rangers are 12-2 in their last 14 games as an underdog.

NHL: Nashville is 13-3 in its last 16 home games.

Key stat

20 – The Detroit Red Wings have won 20 straight home games, tying the NHL record which was previously set by the 1929-30 Boston Bruins and the 1975-76 Philadelphia Flyers. The Red Wings have a shot to set a new record Tuesday against the Dallas Stars. The Wings are set as -210 favorites.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Jerryd Bayless, Toronto Raptors - Bayless has missed the past two games with a sore left ankle and remains questionable to play Tuesday when the Raptors take on the Knicks. Bayless is putting up 11.3 points and three assists per game.

Game of the day

Miami Heat at Indiana Pacers (1, 198)

Notable quotable

“Honestly, we looked like spoiled brats out there if you look at the tape - arguing with one another, complaining about calls. I think we kind of learned our lesson watching film for about an hour so. We should be fine. We just have to bounce back and keep doing what we’ve been doing.” – Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger about Saturday’s 58-48 loss to Michigan State. The Buckeyes visit Minnesota Tuesday.

Notes and tips

New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire returned to practice on Monday following a week-long absence due to the death of his brother. Stoudemire is expected to play in Tuesday's game against the Toronto Raptors. Stoudemire, who missed four games, is averaging 18.2 points and 8.1 rebounds this season. Last Monday, Hazell Stoudemire was driving north on U.S. 27 in Lake Wales, Fla., when he collided with a tractor trailer. He was 35. The Knicks (13-15) have won five straight contests and are now just two games shy of .500.

Florida Gators forward Will Yeguete and guard Mike Rosario have been ruled out of Tuesday's game against Alabama. Yeguete suffered his second concussion of the season during Saturday's tilt versus Tennessee. Coach Billy Donovan said Monday that the sophomore is dealing with post-concussion symptoms and will likely miss Saturday's game versus Arkansas. Rosario is dealing with a hip pointer, causing the junior to miss five contests already this season. Yeguete is averaging 4.5 points and 6.1 rebounds this season, while Rosario is averaging 7.9 points and 1.8 rebounds. Meanwhile, the Alabama Crimson Tide are expected to reinstate suspended guards Trevor Releford and Andrew Steele, but leading scorers JaMychal Green and Tony Mitchell will likely sit again.

It looks as the Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan will stick with Raymond Felton as his starting point guard. McMillan told the press that changes could be coming to the starting lineup after Felton hit just four of his 17 attempts from the floor in Saturday’s loss to Dallas. McMillan doesn’t have much depth to work with at the point guard position and told reporters that Felton would start in Tuesday’s game against Washington. The Blazers are currently set as 14-point favorites.

The Chicago Blackhawks are hoping Ray Emery can help them snap their losing streak Tuesday against the Nashville Predators. Emery will reportedly start in goal even though he owns a 4.02 goals against average and an .870 save percentage in four games this month. The Blackhawks are set as +120 road underdogs.

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

Houston Rockets at Memphis Grizzlies (-3.5, 191)

The Memphis Grizzlies have covered the number just once over the last five games and you probably shouldn't expect too much from this club before the All-Star break.

They fell 98-88 to Utah on Sunday as a 6.5-point favorite.

"Repetition is the best way to improve, and right now we're just holding on," Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins told reporters. "When we come back from the All-Star break, we'll have at least two days to practice, and hopefully we'll get our plays and schemes down. We haven't had multiple days off since the start of the season."

If the Grizz are looking for sympathy, they won’t get any from Houston. The Rockets have been on the road for the last 10 days and will finish off the six-game voyage Tuesday. So far they’re 3-2 straight up and against the spread after dropping a 106-97 decision to Golden State.

The good news was that Kevin Martin broke out of his slump with 28 points in the losing effort.

We like Houston to finish the trip on a positive note.

Pick: Rockets

San Antonio Spurs at Detroit Pistons (8, 186.5)

The San Antonio Spurs withstood the loss of Manu Ginobili and have stayed on a roll despite being booted out of their home arena because of the rodeo.

The Spurs look to remain perfect on their season-long nine-game road trip when they visit the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday. San Antonio is seeking its eighth straight victory overall and four in a row on its annual Rodeo Road Trip.

Ginobili returned from a 22-game absence because of a broken hand and scored eight points in 17 minutes in Saturday’s 103-89 win at New Jersey. One of his goals will be to avoid disrupting the team’s chemistry.

“I just want to contribute, help a little bit, don't change anything of what the team's doing, just try to fit in again,” he said.

Forward Tim Duncan is riding a streak of four consecutive double-doubles – his longest of the season. The Spurs will be looking to win eight straight for the first time since Jan. 7-21, 2011.

Pick: Spurs

College funds: Tuesday's best NCAAB bets

Virginia Cavaliers at Clemson Tigers (-1, 113.5)

How effective Virginia’s Joe Harris can be with a fractured left hand is the big question in this matchup.

The sophomore guard, who ranks second on the team in scoring (12.5), suffered the injury to his non-shooting hand in Saturday’s loss at North Carolina.

Harris will keep playing, with the team saying "Harris’ hand will be protected and he will be closely monitored."

No. 22 Virginia leads the all-time series 67-51, including a four-point win in Charlottesville on Jan. 31. But the Tigers have won two straight over Virginia at Littlejohn Coliseum, by a combined 41 points.

Clemson snapped its three-game skid with a 20-point win at woeful Wake Forest on Saturday. That win will have the Tigers riding high heading into this one.

Pick: Tigers

Mississippi State Bulldogs at LSU Tigers (-1, 136)

The Bulldogs look to return to form and sweep the Tigers for the fourth time in six years.

Mississippi State had won six of its previous eight games, including a 76-71 victory in Baton Rouge on Jan. 25.

But the Bulldogs blew a seven-point lead and lost at home to Georgia in overtime on Saturday, 70-68. Mississippi State is tied with Vanderbilt for third in the SEC, 4 ½ games behind top-ranked Kentucky. LSU has won two of its past three after losing five of six.

The Tigers held off suspension-ravaged Alabama on Saturday, 67-58.

The Tigers are one of the better defensive teams in the conference, ranking fourth in average points allowed and fifth in defensive field-goal percentage. But the Tigers shoot just 40.8 percent from the field, next-to-last in the SEC.

Justin Hamilton scored 21 points in the victory over Alabama, after averaging just 10.3 points in his previous four games. The Tigers are ninth in the SEC, but just two games behind Mississippi State.

Pick: Under

Ice picks: Tuesday's best NHL bets

New York Rangers at Boston Bruins (-135, 5)

The Boston Bruins are a tough team to play against, especially when they’re in their own barn. But don’t expect the Rangers to be bothered by Boston’s physical play.

The Rangers, who sit in first place in the Eastern Conference, five points in front of the Bruins, also lead the league with 46 fighting majors this season. Boston sits second with 42.

New York won the first meeting between the two teams on Jan. 21, getting a power play goal from Marian Gaborik in overtime for a 3-2 victory.

"I'm looking forward to it," Boston coach Claude Julien said of the rematch. "I liked the game we played them last time, and even though we lost, it was a heavy game, two teams that are hard to play against, and that's what we need right now."

Boston bounced back from a 6-0 blowout loss to Buffalo by slipping by Nashville 4-3 on Saturday, but the B's are only 3-4 in their last seven. New York has won five of its last six.

Pick: Rangers

Anaheim Ducks at Minnesota Wild (-110, 5.5)

This season is slipping away from the Minnesota Wild after the club’s fast start.

The Wild jumped out to 20-7-3 record at the beginning of the season but it’s all been downhill since and they now sit in 12th place in the Western Conference. Last week Minnesota dropped a pair of games to Columbus, the league’s worst team by a landslide.

"This time of year, we know we need wins. At this time of the year, outplaying a team unfortunately doesn't matter a whole lot," Wild coach Mike Yeo told reporters after a 3-1 loss to Columbus. "Deserving to win, unfortunately, doesn't count for a whole lot. We have to find ways to win. We have to win games where we outplay the team like we did tonight, and we have to win games sometimes where it's even or 50-50."

Now the Wild have to face a Ducks team that’s finally winning some games. Corey Perry broke out with a hat trick in a 5-3 win over the Blue Jackets and Minnesota could have trouble keeping up with Anaheim’s firepower.

Pick: Ducks
