Cheddar~ I know you are new and all but if you take the time to look back at some of the previous days, you would answer both of your questions instead of cluttering the forum. There are other places with this site to ask questions but scrolling through a few of the previous pages will probably answer most if not all of your questions.

Good Luck!!! :dancefool

we don't use a color system here, if I knew the units I would post them. They were all posted in green if that means anything to you, it doesn't to me. The only thing we don't post at the rx are write-ups for the services listed in post#1.

Now let's get to a Bonus Play for tonight, and it comes in college hoops as I back Billy Donovan's Florida Gators plus the points at the famed Rupp Arena this evening.

Florida enters riding a seven-game winning streak, and they also enter with a profitable 9-4-1 spread mark the last 14 times they have faced the Kentucky Wildcats.

Kentucky has gone a perfect 15-0 straight up at home this season, but against the spread it has been a different story, as Coach Cal's team is just 3-10-1 versus the number in lined games at Rupp Arena this year.

Florida is out to show that they are a viable threat to go deep into the month of March, so expect a strong showing tonight against their hated rival.

This will be just the third time this season the Gators have been listed as the underdog, and with covers against both Ohio State and Syracuse, the track record suggests the Gators will be up for the challenge tonight in Lexington.

Take the points as Florida and Kentucky tie one on tonight.

Your Tuesday freebie is the Evansville Purple Aces as the home underdog against the Crieghton Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays have quietly amassed a 21-3 record and are ranked in the Top-Twenty this year, but tonight's game is a potential tricky spot for the Jays, as the Purple Aces have played some competitive basketball of late.

Creighton just lost a tough one at Northern Iowa and will have to get that memory out of their minds quickly, as they face an Evansville team that is on an 11-3 spread run their last 14 games.

The Purple Aces have lost six in a row to the Blue Jays in MVC meetings, but four of the last five meetings have been decided by single-digits.

With the Jays still smarting from that loss at Northern Iowa on Saturday, look for their focus to be just a little off at the get-go tonight, and look for the home team to press the action for the full 40-minutes.

Evansville plus the points your freebie for Tuesday.

Creighton vs. Evansville
Play: Creighton -5.5

Creighton is once again a top tier Missouri Valley Conference team this season. Tonight they have some solid angles in their favor as they travel to Evansville. The Jays are 15-4 with 14 spread wins off a loss and have won 19 of the last 23 including all 5 games this season vs teams under .500. They are 4-0 with 3 ats wins in the series of late and 8-2 on the road. Evansville has lost 13 of 13 vs winning teams and are have lost and failed to cover 3 of the last 4 times as a home dog of 3.5 to 6. They are also 2-6 when the total is 150 to 160 and they simply may not be able to score with Creighton.

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Montreal Canadiens
PICK: Montreal Canadiens

I won with the Canadiens in their last game, a 3-0 victory over Winnipeg on Sunday. They're "stepping up in class" here, so are now listed as underdogs. As I feel they've got an excellent shot at another victory, I believe that's providing us with solid value.

The Canadiens should be extremely motivated. That's because they are playing with "triple revenge," having lost all three to the Penguins so far this season. Note that each of the last two meetings were decided by a single goal.

Still without Crosby, the Pens have started to finally cool off a little lately. They lost 5-2 last time out and have now dropped two of their last three. Note that they're only 2-8 (-8.6) the last 10 times that they were off a loss of two or more goals.

The Pens are wrapping up a 4-game road trip and have a few days off after this. They could easily be looking forward to getting home. On the other hand, the Canadiens are finishing up a 3-game homestand. Having split the first two games, they'd love to close things out with a win here.

I expect the Canadiens to be a little more "hungry" and feel that gives them a strong shot at the "upset." Looking for a play with a decent underdog return on Tuesday? Consider Montreal.

Creighton vs Evansville
Pick: Evansville

Creighton is the strong team here, but they have a huge showdown game on deck against powerhouse Wichita State. Evansville has a winning record at home and will be sky high with a Top 25 team in town. The Purple Aces are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Purple Aces are also 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record. Play Evansville.

Providence vsVillanova
Pick: Villanova

Certainly a rough season for Villanova, but the Wildcats have a good opportunity to take out some frustration here. Providence let one get away on Sunday against West Virginia, and I don't see the Friars recovering in just 48 hours. I'll side with 'Nova tonight.

Flames / Sharks Over 5.5

For a number of different reasons I believe the value in this contest is on the "over":

The Calgary Flames are 24-22-3-4 overall this year; they're 14-8-1-1 at home and just 10-14-2-3 on the road; they're coming off a 3-2 shootout loss at Anaheim on Sunday, which was on the heels of a 3-1 win over the Blackhawks at home three nights previous.

The O/U is 19-31-3.

"We had a couple of chances to win, but it's not easy with their goalie," Flames netminder Mikka Kiprusoff said.

Calgary remains just three points out of a playoff spot though with 29-games left in the season, and captain Jerome Iginla believe's his team has a legitimate shot at finally making it to the post-season after missing for two years straight:

"We've played Detroit," Iginla reasoned. "We've played Vancouver. We've played San Jose. And we've played them lately. And while we respect them, we definitely feel we can beat them ...

"I like it in Calgary. I believe we can be in the playoffs and have a shot."

On the other bench: The Sharks are 29-15-3-3 overall this year, including 17-8-2-0 at home and 12-7-1-3 on the road; after three straight victories, they're coming off a 5-3 loss at Phoenix on Saturday.

The O/U is 23-27-0.

"It wasn't lack of offense," said Sharks coach Todd McLellan. "We had a number of chances and ended up with three at the end. We were not competitive at the times we needed to be competitive."

Bottom line: Both teams push the pace of this game after lacklustre efforts; you may want to consider a second look at the "over" in this contest.

Evansville +5.5

I do understand, it's not easy to take the Ace's here against a clearly superior Jays club. Well, it wasn't to appealing to wager on Oklahoma last night against the vastly better Missouri Tigers either. However that turned out okay didn't it? The fact is I think this is a tough spot for Creighton with the upcoming battle against Wichita State looming. I fully anticipate the crowd to be electric with the ranked Jays in the house and frankly the Aces are a historically a solid proposition on their home floor against quality opponents. I feel Creighton is in for an alley fight here. I say take the generous points here with the home dog. To be candid I did consider this as a Rabid Dog Release tonight but found another game that seemed even stronger to me so I chose it in the end.

Creighton @ Evansville
PICK: Under 153.5

Creighton suffered a rare loss on Saturday, dropping a 65-62 decision on a last-second three-pointer from Northern Iowa's Anthony James.

That was only the Blue Jays third loss overall this season, and second in Missouri Valley Conference play.

Despite that setback, Creighton continues to play excellent defensive basketball. The Blue Jays have five of their last six opponents to fewer than 70 points. Illinois State was the only team to break through that barrier, in a game where the Jays emptied their bench in a 28-point victory (we won w/ Creighton in that game).

While Creighton is known as a high-powered offensive team that loves to push the pace, the fact is, the 'under' has cashed at a 4-1-1 clip in its last five contests. Save for that 102-point outburst against Illinois State, it's not as if the Blue Jays have been scoring at will lately. They've been held to 77 points or less in five of their last six games.

Evansville saw its string of six consecutive 'over' results come to an end in Saturday's narrow 53-52 loss at Southern Illinois.

While the Purple Aces own an ugly set of defensive numbers, they've actually performed much better at home in MVC play, limiting five of their six opponents to fewer than 70 points. Only Illinois State was able to eclipse that number, in a game that still reached only 150 points, staying 'under' tonight's posted total.

In fact, only one of Evansville's six conference home games has surpassed the number we're working with tonight in regulation time.

These two teams hooked up twice last season, with those games totaling 143 and 144 points. Personnel-wise, both squads remain similar. With that being said, the oddsmakers are expecting a different result, adjusting this total northward by 23 points from the closing number in their most recent meeting nearly a year ago to the day.

For the most part, the 'over' results we've seen from the Blue Jays this year have come in games that have resulted in blowout victories. Evansville should be able to stay somewhat competitive in this contest, as it has all season here at home. I'm banking on both defenses playing well enough to keep this one 'under' the inflated total.

Cleveland @ Miami
PICK: Miami -13

The Miami Heat were built on ego, they thrive on ego. With larger-than-life characters like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, there’s no team in the NBA that can win or lose based on how they feel that night more than the Heat. And after a lackluster showing versus the Toronto Raptors Sunday, Miami’s Big Three will be out for a pick-me-up against the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday. And it’s not like the Heat don’t have any added motivation to knock around the Cavs. Of course, there are LeBron’s motives when playing his former club. But a new angle that has surfaced is the battle in the backcourt between Wade and No. 1 overall pick Kyrie Irving. Wade missed the first meeting with Irving this season due to injury and will be licking his chops at the opportunity to put the youngster in his place. Cleveland already has some gaping holes in its backcourt with Daniel Gibson and Anthony Parker out with injuries. The Heat will attack Irving and run the former Duke standout into the ground. Cleveland may be on thin ice before it even comes to South Beach Tuesday. The Cavaliers have gone toe-to-toe with some of the NBA’s top teams in recent games, including a shocker over the defending champion Dallas Mavericks Saturday. This sets up perfect for Miami backers, looking to not only capitalize on a motivated Heat squad but also a Cavs team primed for a letdown. The Heat are healthy, home and hungry to get their hands on Cleveland Tuesday night.

Hurricanes @ Ducks
PICK: Under

I bet value where I see it and expect this to be a tightly checked, low-scoring affair.

The 20-25-9 Carolina Hurricanes storm into Anaheim to take on the 20-24-8 Ducks.

Carolina is coming off a hard-fought 2-1 win over Los Angeles on Saturday.

It was Jeff Skinner's goal 3:02 into the final frame that was the difference; Jiri Tlutsy also tallied a marker, while goaltender Cam Ward had 24-saves:

“They came out ready to play, and it seemed like they had a step on us in the first period,” Ward said. “We weren’t too pleased with it after the first intermission, but once again, we were able to turn it around. We knew that they had some travel, so we made it difficult on them in the second and third.”

Note that Carolina entered that game with a brutal 1-13-0 record when trailing in the first period.

Also note that Ward had posted a stellar 1.88 GAA over his previous 10-home contests.

The Ducks on the other hand are coming off a 3-2 win over the Flames on Monday night.

Niklas Hagman finally beat Mikka Kiprusoff in the eighth round of the shootout:

“He’s a goalie I have practiced a lot against,” said Hagman, who used to play for the Flames. “I don’t have that many moves, and he knows my go-to moves. I tried to switch a little bit. I wanted to come with good speed and shoot it. Luckily for me, he probably thought I was going to go with my backhand.”

Jonas Hiller had 24-saves:

“We really needed those two points,” said Hiller. “It wasn’t an easy game. Both teams played really hard. It was about time we won a shootout.”

Two low-scoring, hard-hitting teams going head to head, with above average goaltenders; all signs point to a low-scoring affair!
