Pelicans vs Mavs

Play Type: Premium

It will take some time for DeMarcus Cousins to work himself into the force that the Pelicans are hoping he can become with the twin tower tandem with Anthony Davis. They put up some big stats in their first game, a blowout loss to Houston. But they didn’t get any production from any other players on the court. This is a work in progress for sure while the Mavs have been playing very solid team basketball despite some up-and-down results. But this team is a winning team ATS and they are often undervalued and we sure think that is the case tonight as we expect them to score the straight up win here as the small home dog.

Miami has dominated this series lately with three straight wins and covers. We were on the Pacers last night and they covered at home in an impressive win vs. Memphis. But now they go on the road where they haven’t been the same team and they are on a back-to-back, no less. Miami is on a back-to-back but they are 8-2 ATS compared to a 2-9-1 ATS record in back-to-backs for the Pacers. Miami is in much more consistent form lately as well and this team just keeps getting the job done. We think they get some home cooking tonight and they should win this one by 7+.

Not sure what is wrong with the Hornets but they have better talent than they have displayed lately and they have just been horrible as they have not been playing fundamental team basketball. They had a great chance for a win last time out at Detroit but blew a huge late lead and lost in OT. No way they should be a favorite here. The Kings played great in their first game in the post-Cousins era and they seem to have a chip on their shoulder. This team still has some talent and they are probably the better team right now even without Cousins. Great value in the home underdog in this early tip.

4-unit Play Take #10 Toronto Maple Leafs (-115) over Montreal Canadiens (5:05pm EST) Big game tonight in Toronto has the Maple Leafs host the Montreal Canadiens. For virtually the entire season, the Canadiens have been perched atop the Atlantic Division. But that lead is tenuous now with six other teams within 10 points of them in the standings, including the Leafs who are just four points behind. The offense for Montreal has completely disappeared over the last few weeks. They are 2-8 over their last 10 games and have scored a total of just 14 goals in those contests (1.4 goals per game). That's not going to cut it, even when they do have a world-class goaltender backing them up. Toronto has been a little up and down of late, but that's understandable given the youth on their squad. I have confidence that head coach Mike Babcock will keep his team focused down the stretch as they fight for a playoff spot. The Leafs are the far better team right now and deserve to be a bigger home favorite than this. Take Toronto.

4-unit Play Take #11 Philadelphia Flyers (+175) over Pittsburgh Penguins (8:05pm EST) The Pittsburgh Penguins are a beat up squad right now with several key guys either on the injured list or playing through various injuries. It's affected their play quite a bit lately as the Pens have lost four of their last eight contests. Pittsburgh always has a tough time with their rival the Flyers, so today's matchup should be a good one. Philadelphia doesn't appear to be playing that well if you look at the wins and losses, but the Flyers are in fact turning in some good hockey. They've outshot their opponents in seven straight games and could have easily won several of the games they lost during that stretch. They've run up against some hot goaltenders lately, but I think their luck will start to turn. They are a big underdog in today's game, but it's definitely worth back the Flyers here.

4 Unit Play. #518 Take Pittsburgh over North Carolina (12 pm ACCN) I always like taking big underdogs in these early start games on Saturday and I just do not believe Pittsburgh will get blown out in this game. North Carolina has been on a roll of winning three straight games (all of them by double digits). Expect a more competitive game on Saturday as Pittsburgh has two very talented players. The Panthers lost by just 2 points in Chapel Hill earlier this season and I see this game being a 5-6 points victory for North Carolina. The Tar Heels are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games against teams with a winning home record. Pittsburgh is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog.

4 Unit Play. #630 Take Michigan over Purdue (4 pm ESPN 2) Purdue is starting to feel the pressure of winning the Big 10 conference. They struggled to put away Penn State this week and now face a team that is still trying to improve their resume in Michigan. The Wolverines have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 home games. With two road games on deck, this is a game Michigan needs.

6 Unit Play. #654 Take Colorado State over San Diego State (8 pm CBSSN) TOP COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAY OF THE DAY. Still not sure how the Rams are doing it with our 7 scholarship players but they are in position to win the conference Championship and they are always a tough out at home. San Diego State is overvalued due to years of dominating in the MWC but this year’s squad is just not very good. They have lost road games at Air Force, San Jose State, Boise State, and Nevada. The Rams already won in San Diego this year and will enter this game having won five in a row. Colorado State is 9-1 ATS in their last 10 home games against teams that have a losing road record.

4 Unit Play. #670 Take Arizona over UCLA (8:15 pm ESPN) All Arizona does is win! They have a chance to win the outright PAC-12 Championship with wins in their final two games and this should be their last test of the season. Arizona already won in Los Angeles this season and they play much better defense than do the Bruins. The Wildcats are 70-1 in their last 71 games in Tucson. UCLA is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. Arizona is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite of 6.5 points or less.

4 Unit Play. #705 Take South Dakota over IUPUI (7 pm ESPN 3) The Coyotes look to close out Summit play with six straight wins. The already beat the Jaguars this season by 11 points. If they win today they will guarantee at least a share of the Summit regular season championship and they are just a better team than IUPUI. South Dakota is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games played on Saturday. IUPUI is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games played on Saturday.

Ducks vs Kings
UNDER 5 -102 Tie
Play Type: Free

Free NHL Prediction From Doc's Sports 
Take 'Under' 5.0 Anaheim at Los Angeles (4 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25) 
Don't expect many premium scoring chances on Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles when the Kings host the Ducks. Both teams are patient with the puck and neither gives away odd man breaks the other way very often. These are just two fundamentally sound teams, so this might not be the most exciting game to watch. However, when you're on the UNDER that's exactly what you're looking for. These teams played last week and the Kings won 1-0 in game that only had a total of 53 shots on goal. We expect more of the same on Saturday, so we'll take the UNDER for our Free Play selection.

10 Unit Play. #625 Take Nevada over UNLV (6 pm CBSSN) Always dangerous to lay points on the road in a rivalry game but the talent disparity is just too large. The Rebels have lost eight straight games and they cannot wait for this season to end and put the rest the worst season in their storied history. Nevada won the first meeting by 27 points and the Pack have to much to play for to let up in this game (regular season MWC title). Nevada has not played that well on the road in recent games against San Diego State and Utah State but those teams had playmakers and that is something UNLV lacks in a major way. Nevada is 33-16 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 51 games. UNLV is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games. The spread should be double digits and we will take full advantage of a favorable number.

4-unit Play Take #60 Chicago Blackhawks (-165) over St. Louis Blues (7:35pm EST) Great spot tonight for the Chicago Blackhawks. They have won eight of nine games and will get a St. Louis Blues team coming off of a bye week. The Blues have had five straight days off and will be a little rusty early on, as we've seen that trend hold true for nearly every team coming off a bye this season. It's difficult to fall behind the Blackhawks early on and play catch up. They're not one of those teams that play it safe when they have a lead. The Blues would be in the playoffs if the postseason were to start today, but I'm not sure they deserve it. They've actually been outscored by their opponents overall this season (-3 goal differential) and have lacked any kind of spark offensively. I like Chicago to win today's game with relative ease.

5-unit  Play Take #57 Columbus Blue Jackets (+115) over New York Rangers (5:05pm EST) The Columbus Blue Jackets hit a bit of a wall after winning 16 straight games earlier this season. But lately they've gotten back on track and are playing some really good hockey. They've won three of four games, racking up impressive wins against the Maple Leafs, Penguins and Islanders. That last game versus the Isles was a 7-0 winner that they dominated from the outset to the final buzzer. Today they get the New York Rangers. The Blue Jackets lost to the Rangers in Columbus less than two weeks ago, but it was a game they deserved to win. The Jackets led the majority of the way early on and outshot New York by nine shots in that contest overall. The Rangers are coming off of three straight hard fought games that all went to overtime, so I expect to see some fatigue from them today; especially considering that this is their fourth game in six nights. From a power rating perspective, Columbus is the better team and they should also have a little more energy. As a result, we're taking the underdog Blue Jackets as our NHL Game of the Week.

4 Unit Play. #859 Take Wisconsin over Michigan State (4 pm CBS) This line tells me a great deal about this game. It opened as a pick but now has Wisconsin close to a field goal favorite. Michigan State is just not very good this season and will need an impressive run to even qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Wisconsin is back in the driver’s seat to win the Big 10 with a pair of home games following this game and they are tied with Purdue in the loss column. Sooner or late Wisconsin is going to break out of this slump and it might as well come today. Michigan State is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog. Wisconsin is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite of 6.5 points or less.

Blazers vs Raptors
Raptors
-5 -115 at betonline
Play Type: Premium

Toronto rarely gets proper respect from oddsmakers and that is why they have been one of the best ATS teams in the NBA the last couple of seasons and this season is no different. And we think that this spread is a bit short as we had this one handicapped at 7.5 so we think there is nice value here tonight. The Raptors have won three straight meetings in this series and they looked real good in their first game back after the break as they dominated the Celtics and we think they hold their momentum here and score a big home win over an overmatched opponent.

Washington is hot but when you put these two teams down on paper the Jazz are the much better club and we had them as a slight favorite in this matchup. Utah has been very good on the road this year and that has always been a problem with this team but this is the best Jazz team we have seen in years and we expect them to get the job done on Sunday. The break might have sunk the Wizards momentum as they had a head-scratching loss at Philly and the Jazz looked very good in their win after the break. We expect the Jazz to score the road win here and think they match up very well here.

If their effort in their first game back from the break is any indication, the Lakers are in tank mode for the rest of the season. This team needs to lose to keep their pick in this year’s draft. The Spurs are ruthless and they can often cover these big lines and they rarely let down at the end of games and let the opponent in the back door. San Antonio won by 40 the last time these teams played and the Spurs seem very focused after a solid win over the Clippers last time out and they are familiar with this building after just winning here.

4 Unit Play. #841 Take USC over Arizona State (6:30 pm PAC-12 Network) It is put up or shut up time for USC. They are currently a bubble team to the NCAA Tournament and they cannot afford a loss like this to finish out the regular season (3 games remain). USC gave Arizona a decent battle for 27 minutes but this is a much weaker team than is Arizona. The Sun Devils are coming off back-to-back blowouts including one against Washington State. USC does not have enough quality wins to avoid a bad loss here and expect them to win this game by 5-7 points. Arizona State is 2-11 ATS in their last 13 games played on Sunday. 

SERVICE BIO

Doc's Sports Service has been in the sports handicapping business since 1971, and we are recognized as one of the leaders and most trusted names in the industry.

Most handicapping services are one-man operations, but here at Doc’s Sports we are among the most progressive thinkers in the industry, and we have assembled some of the finest experts in the country for our service.

We are one of the few handicapping companies that have withstood the test of time because of hard work, honesty and consistently of providing winners to our valued clients.

Since 1971 Doc’s Sports became famous for our college football Big Ten Game of the Year that won and covered the point spread 19 years in a row.

Doc’s Sports is one of the only handicapping services whose powerful influence has historically moved the official Las Vegas line more than seven points.

At Doc’s Sports we often focus on lesser-known teams and less-popular games as oftentimes less information is available on those teams and games and certain trends tend to stick out and offer value that the average person may not catch. 

Oddsmakers set lines to balance the action, so in reality we're often handicapping against the general public perception, and the general public rarely ever wins long term. When you think of it that way our job is really not that difficult since we have more than four decades of experience and know what to look for when handicapping a game. The sportsbooks and oddsmakers have to handicap and set lines for every game -- we simply find a few of their mistakes. 

Doc’s Sports uses a combination of technical and fundamental handicapping along with exclusive information that we gather from a vast network of contacts that we have developed over the past 40+ years.

At Doc’s Sports we built our name in the 1970s by becoming one of the best in handicapping college sports. That still holds true today as our best results still come from college football and college basketball.  

We also have individual full-time handicappers for NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, WNBA, CFL and major horse races, and we feel we have some of the top experts in the country in these designated fields. We are always in search of the best talent for our team, and what surprises most people is that some of our best information comes from our own clients. 

These are trusted clients that have been not only customers but have turned into friends of ours over the years, and they are able to pick up on key information in their areas.  We love the feeling of being able to help people make money when facing challenging odds.

Good money can be made if one has the connections, and here at Doc's Sports we pride ourselves on uncovering the edge that gives the clients the ability to beat the books on a consistent basis.
