GAME: (829) OREGON STATE vs (830) ARIZONA
PICKS: (830) ARIZONA
REASON FOR PICK: This is a Free #NCAAB play on the Arizona Wildcats.
Arizona has won five straight by an average margin of more than 19 points heading into tonight's home game versus Oregon State. It was the Beavers that handed the Wildcats their only loss in conference play so far, so you can expect Arizona be motivated by revenge here tonight.
The Wildcats have won 32 straight home games dating back to February of 2013. They rank 7th nationally with a field goal percentage of 49.8%.
Oregon State is coming off a 73-55 loss at Arizona State, and they have dropped four of six on the road this season. All three of their road losses during conference play have come by a double digit margin.
The Beavers lost by a score of 76-54 when they traveled to Tuscon last season, and I expect another one-sided affair here tonight.
GAME: (807) HOUSTON ROCKETS vs (808) BOSTON CELTICS
PICKS: (808) BOSTON CELTICS
REASON FOR PICK: Play - Boston Celtics.
Edges - Celtics: 5-0 ATS last five games as a dog; and 3-0 ATS off SU DD loss versus non-conference foe off SU win this season. Rockets: 2-11 ATS away after Mavericks versus foe off SUATS loss. With the Celtics looking to avenge a 14-point loss suffered at Houston on opening day this season, the points become the play here tonight. We recommend a 1-unit play on Boston. Thank you and good luck as always.
