Southern Utah vs Weber State
OVER 136 -110 Won
$100
Play Type: Top Premium

At 9:00 PM ET on Saturday, we will be playing Over the Total in the game between Southern Utah Thundercats (771) and the Weber State Wildcats (772). THE SITUATION: Southern Utah (14-12) has lost three straight games after their 68-66 loss at Northern Colorado as a 7-point underdog on Thursday. Weber State (10-16) has lost their last three games with their 77-63 loss at Montana State as a 5-point underdog last Saturday.

REASONS TO TAKE OVER THE TOTAL: The Thunderbirds have played 7 of their last 10 games over the total after a loss on the road by 3 points or less. They also have played 4 of their last 5 games Over the Total after a point spread victory. Additionally, Southern Utah has played 5 of their last 7 games Over the Total after losing three straight games to Big Sky opponents. Now the Thunderbirds go back on the road where they have played 5 of their last 7 road games Over the Total against teams with a winning record at home — and they have also played 4 of their last 5 road games Over the Total when listed in the +/- 3-point range. Southern Utah has not made more than three shots from behind the arc in two straight games — but they have then played 22 of their last 30 games Over the Total after failing to make more than three shots from 3-point range in two straight games. They now face a Wildcats team that is 328th in the nation by allowing their opponents to nail 37.3% of their shots from downtown. Weber State allows their opponents to make 45.1% of their shots this season — and the Thunderbirds have played 6 of their last 8 games Over the Total against teams who allow their opponents to make at least 45% of their shots. Southern Utah has also played 10 of their last 14 games Over the Total against teams who are not winning more than 40% of their games. Weber State has played 10 of their last 12 games Over the Total after a straight-up loss — and they have played 4 of their last 5 games Over the Total after a point spread setback. The Wildcats have also played 6 straight games Over the Total after losing two straight games. They return home where they are 7-4 while making 49.4% of their shots which is generating 80.5 PPG. Weber State has played 7 of their last 9 home games Over the Total — and they have played 6 of their last 7 home games Over the Total as an underdog. The Wildcats’ play on the defensive end of the court has waned as of late. They have allowed their last five opponents to make 47.9% of their shots which has resulted in them averaging 71.0 PPG.

FINAL TAKE: Southern Utah will be looking to avenge a 75-65 upset loss at home to Weber State back on January 30th. The Thunderbirds have played 22 of their last 33 games Over the Total when avenging a loss where they allowed at least 75 points — and they have played 11 of their last 14 games Over the Total on the road when playing with revenge from a double-digit loss. 25* CBB Big Sky Conference Total of the Year with Over the Total in the game between Southern Utah Thundercats (771) and the Weber State Wildcats (772). Best of luck for us — Frank.

$108.0
Play Type: Premium

At 3:35 PM ET on Saturday, we will be playing the Los Angeles Clippers (532) minus the points versus the Sacramento Kings (531). THE SITUATION: Los Angeles (37-18) returns from the All-Star break having lost two straight games as well as three of their last four contests after a 141-133 loss at Boston back on February 13th where they were 2.5-point underdogs. Sacramento (22-33) has won four of their last six games after their 129-125 win at home against Memphis on Thursday as a 1-point favorite on Thursday.

REASONS TO TAKE THE CLIPPERS MINUS THE POINTS: Los Angeles made only 41.8% of their shots two Thursdays ago which was the worst offensive effort in their last seven games. The Clippers have bounced-back to cover the point spread in 12 of their last 16 games after a straight-up loss — and they have covered the point spread in 24 of their last 32 games after a point spread loss. The team will not be at full strength this afternoon with Paul George out with a hamstring injury and Patrick Beverley out with a groin injury — but depth is a strength of this team even before they added Marcus Morris and Reggie Jackson at the trade deadline. Kawhi Leonard should be playing in this game with load management, not a concern given the extended time off for this team. They are 21-7-1 ATS in their last 29 games when playing with at least three days of rest. The Clippers are 22-5 at home in the Staples Center where they are outscoring their opponents by +9.1 PPG. Sacramento has failed to cover the point spread in 7 straight games after scoring at least 125 points in their last game. The Kings did allow the Grizzlies to make 50.6% of their shots which was the third time in their last four games — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 5 of their last 7 games after allowing their last two opponents to shoot at least 50% from the field. Sacramento has allowed their last three opponents to score at least 123 points — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 6 of their last 7 games after giving up at least 110 points in three straight games. The Kings go back on the road where they have failed to cover the point spread in 13 of their last 19 road games with the Total set at 230 or higher. Sacramento has also failed to cover the point spread in 6 of their last 8 games against teams who are winning at least 60% of their games.

FINAL TAKE: The Clippers are looking to avenge a 124-123 upset loss at home to the Kings back on January 30th as a 14-point favorite — and they have covered the point spread in 8 straight home games when avenging a loss where they allowed at least 110 points. Sacramento has failed to cover the point spread in 8 of their last 9 meetings with the Clippers — and they have also failed to cover the point spread in 5 of their last 6 games against them in the Staples Center. 10* NBA Saturday Afternoon Discounted Deal with the Los Angeles Clippers (532) minus the points versus the Sacramento Kings (531). Best of luck for us — Frank.

UNDER 227 -110 Won
$100
Play Type: Free

Take Under the Total in the game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Milwaukee Bucks. Philadelphia (35-21) has four straight games with their 112-104 win over Brooklyn on Thursday as an 8-point favorite. The 76ers go back on the road where they have played 8 of their last 11 games Under the Total. Philadelphia has also played 9 of their last 10 games Under the Total against teams with a winning percentage over 60%. Milwaukee (47-8) comes off a 126-106 win at Detroit on Thursday. The Bucks have then played 15 of their last 19 games at home Under the Total after a win on the road by double-digits. Milwaukee has also played 8 of their last 9 games Under the Total after a win on the road by at least 20 points. Take the Under. Best of luck — Frank.

Frank Sawyer’s Hollywood Sports lost a frustrating one last night with Ja Morant’s dribbling the ball out in the last 15 seconds rather than making the one basket needed for Memphis to cover the +10.5/+11 points versus the Lakers — but they remain on a SIZZLING 28 of 46 (61%) NBA run along with a 17 of 27 (63%) NBA Game of the Year/Month mark even after that setback!

Play Type: Top Premium

At 8:35 PM ET on Saturday, we will be playing the Milwaukee Bucks (542) minus the points versus the Philadelphia 76ers (541). THE SITUATION: Milwaukee (47-8) has won six of their last seven games with their 126-106 win at Detroit on Thursday as a 13-point favorite. Philadelphia (35-31) has won their last four games with their 112-104 win over Brooklyn on Thursday as an 8-point favorite.

REASONS TO TAKE THE BUCKS MINUS THE POINTS: Milwaukee made 50.8% of their shots in racing out to a 29-point lead going into halftime against the hapless Pistons — but they still allowed Detroit to make 48.2% of their shots which was the second highest opponent’s field goal percentage in their last seventeen games. The Bucks allowed Indiana to shoot 52.3% from the field in the last game before the All-Star break in a game where Giannis Antetokounmpo did not play with the birth of his child. Expect a better defensive effort from this team tonight. As it is, Milwaukee has covered the point spread in 4 of their last 5 games after both a straight-up win and after a point spread victory — and they have covered the point spread in 4 of their last 5 games after a double-digit victory. The Bucks have also covered the point spread in 9 of their last 12 games after scoring at least 125 points in their last game. Now this team returns home for the first time since February 10th — and they have covered the point spread in 24 of their last 35 home games after being on the road for at least seven days. Milwaukee is 25-3 on their home court where they are outscoring their guests by +13.1 PPG while limiting them to just 41.4% shooting from the field. The Bucks also make 48.5% of their shots on their home court which translate into 121.5 PPG. Milwaukee has covered the point spread in 4 of their last 5 home games — and they have covered the point spread in 4 of their last 5 home games against teams with a winning percentage no better than 40% on the road. The Bucks have also covered the point spread in 16 of their last 20 games when favored by 3.5 to 9.5 points. Philadelphia played their best defensive game of the season on Thursday as they held the Nets to just 35.3% shooting. Joel Embiid led the way with 39 points along with 16 rebounds and later proclaimed to be the “best player in the world” after the game. But the 76ers have failed to cover the point spread in 11 of their last 13 games after winning at least four games in a row — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 4 of their last 5 games after a point spread win. This is a team where the sum of the parts are not as powerful as the individual pieces suggest. Chemistry and team cohesion are significant concerns with Embiid and Ben Simmons battle for the claim of being the leader of this team. Is it a coincidence that Embiid has a big game on Thursday with Simmons out with a back issue? Is it then a coincidence that Embiid boasts he is the “best player in the game?” Are you even the best player on your own team, big guy? The frustrating thing about Embiid is that he will then try to prove himself by launching 3 after 3 — and that is not close to the most effective way for his skills on offense to be utilized. The Sixers have, at times, played their best ball with Embiid out and Simmons leading the way along with Al Horford manning the post. Unfortunately, Horford has been a disappointment when playing on the court at the same time with Embiid with that lineup having one too many big men on the court. Now after playing their last four games at home, Philadelphia goes back on the road where these chemistry issues get exposed while the bench players do not perform at such a high level — and Simmons is listed as probable for this game which reignites the on-floor conflict with Embiid. The 76ers are just 9-19 on the road with an average losing margin of -5.0 PPG. Philly is just 6-19-2 ATS in their last 27 games on the road — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 8 of their last 9 road games with the Total set at 220 or higher. Furthermore, the 76ers are just 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games against teams with a winning percentage of 60% or higher on their home court. Philadelphia thrives on the lesser teams in the league — but they are 4-12-1 ATS in the last 17 games against teams with a winning record and they have failed to cover the point spread in 5 of their last 6 games as an underdog.

FINAL TAKE: The Sixers will be looking to avenge a 112-101 loss at Milwaukee back on February 6th — but they have failed to cover the point spread in 8 straight games when playing with revenge from a loss on the road. Philadelphia has also failed to cover the point spread in 4 of their last 5 trips to Milwaukee to face the Bucks. 25* NBA Saturday Night ABC-TV Game of the Year with the Milwaukee Bucks (542) minus the points versus the Philadelphia 76ers (541). Best of luck for us — Frank.

Play Type: Premium

At 12:00 PM ET on Saturday, we will be playing the Marquette Golden Panthers (609) plus the point(s) versus the Providence Friars (610). THE SITUATION: Marquette (17-8) has lost two straight games with their 73-65 upset loss to Creighton on Tuesday as a 3.5-point favorite. Providence (15-12) has won their last two games with their 73-63 upset win at Georgetown as a 1.5-point underdog on Wednesday.

REASONS TO TAKE THE GOLDEN PANTHERS PLUS THE POINT(S): Markus Howard scored only 13 points in the loss on Tuesday as he made only 4 of 14 shots in that contest. Howard should be anxious to redeem himself this afternoon and get back to scoring at his 26.7 PPG clip. Marquette should be rested for this contest as this is just their second game in the last ten days — and they have covered the point spread in 6 of their last 7 games after a point spread loss. Now this team goes back on the road where they are 5-6 this season but where they also rank 19th in the nation in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency for road teams. The Golden Panthers are making 39.4% of their 3-pointers on the road which is the 10th best mark in the nation. This offensive proficiency has helped Marquette cover the point spread in 4 straight games on the road — and they have also covered the point spread in 4 straight road games against teams with a winning percentage over 60% on their home court. The Golden Panthers have also covered the point spread in 6 of their last 9 road games with the Total set in the 140s — and they have covered the point spread in 10 of their last 15 road games when listed in the +/- 3-point range. Providence has failed to cover the point spread in 8 of their last 12 games after a win on the road. The Friars have also failed to cover the point spread in 6 of their last 9 games after a double-digit win against a conference rival. That was Providence’s second straight upset victory as their win over the Hoyas was preceded by a 74-71 upset win over Seton Hall as a 1-point underdog. The Achilles’ heel for this team is their ability to score baskets as they rank 7th in the Big East in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency. They only make 45.3% of their shots inside the arc which is 329th in the nation — and their effective field goal percentage of 46.4% is 310th in the country. The Friars can struggle to find good looks in their half-court offense. This helps explain why Providence has failed to cover the point spread in 7 of their last 9 games as a favorite. The Friars have also failed to cover the point spread in 14 of their last 22 home games with the Total set in the 140s.

FINAL TAKE: Marquette will be looking to avenge an 81-80 upset loss in overtime at home to Providence despite being a 5.5-point favorite back on January 7th. The Golden Panthers have covered the point spread in 31 of their last 45 games when avenging an upset loss at home — and this includes them covering the point spread in five of these last seven situations. Howard scored 39 points in that contest and he now returns to Providence where he scored 52 points back in 2018. 10* CBB Marquette-Providence Fox-TV Special with the Marquette Golden Panthers (609) plus the point(s) versus the Providence Friars (610). Best of luck for us — Frank.
