It has been a horrible season for UCLA as a loss at Arizona on Friday dropped the Bruins to 4-7 in the Pac 12 and 13-11 overall. They have dropped five of their last seven games including two straight on the road but both of those were against quality teams and Arizona St. simply is not. UCLA has not dropped three straight conference games since 2010 and if there is a must win game to save the season, this is the one. The problem is consistency which the Bruins have none of right now so a must win situation assures nothing. The Sun Devils defeated USC on Friday which was their second straight win following a 1-5 run. While that run was a bad one, three of those losses were by five points or less with another coming in overtime. Arizona will be out for payback after a seven-point loss at UCLA last month and it is important to note that the home team has won the last five meetings. The Sun Devils are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games against teams with a losing road record while the Bruins are 1-5 ATS in their last six games following an ATS win. Play (866) Arizona St. Sun Devils
Matt is coming off a POWERFUL 5-2 CBB Saturday, is now on a SOLID 39-23 (63%) NCAA Basketball run and carries it into Sunday! He has put up a PROFITABLE +$14,420 college hoops season and looks to continue the winning now! Going back, he is on a POTENT 94-69-1 College Basketball run and adds to it with a THREE Sunday Winners!
Miami has not struggled with getting the game pace in their direction, like many of Florida State's previous opponents have. G Angel Rodriguez is going to find his shooters on the wing, and they will do what they always do.
When the Hurricanes start getting the game moving fast, Florida St. can get slowed down by the speed of the guards. Sheldon McClellan and Ja'Quan Newton are a lot to handle.
Seminoles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record
Miami-Florida wins giving the points
#NBA All Star Free Pick from Mike Lundin
This is not a contest I will recommend making a huge wager on, but I think it's reasonable to put a couple of units at work on the West in the NBA All Star game Sunday night. The West have won four of the last five All Star games, and looking at the lineups I think it's fair to say that they hold an advantage in virtually every aspect this year as well. We should also remember that this is Kobe Bryant's weekend, and no one would want to see him lose his last All Star game now would they? "We definitely want to send him off on a good note," Kevin Durant said at media day Friday. "We know he's going to be super competitive." Skill and motivational advantages for the West makes this a no-brainer play on the West, but keep the stake small and enjoy the game.
TODAY WE HAVE THREE 10* GAMES OF THE MONTH ALL PART OF OUR FAMOUS TRIPLE CROWN PACKAGES THAT ARE HITTING 65% LIFETIME...GO INSIDE AND EARN WITH TWO SITUATIONS BACK EAST....AND MORE! GOOD LUCK.
Play on Game #858 Utah Utes (Sunday, 5:00 PM EST)
I’m expecting this game to get ugly...quick...Utah is laying a hefty number, but the Utes are shooting 56.4% from the floor over their last three games, good for No.3 in the nation. So we have a team that we can count on to put up a large amount of points. Playing on their homecourt, Utah is averaging 85.4 ppg this season. The good news is they are playing a Washington State team that has been horrendous on the road this season. I don’t see any motivation for them after going into double overtime only to lose to Colorado. They shot 50% from the floor which was their best shooting game in the last ten games. My point is chances are they will not shoot nearly as good today. Washington State is 0-5 SU on the road in PAC 12 play. Four of those losses have been by 11 points or more, three of them by 20 points or more. The biggest spread for them this season was when they were a 18 point road dog at Arizona and they lost by 24 points. My point being here is they aren’t capable of putting up a fight when inserted as a big underdog.
Utah beat Washington State by 21 points last month on the road. Now playing at home, I can only see this score being somewhat of the same if not worse. The last two home meetings in this series, Utah has won by 18 and 22 points, covering both spreads. With two road games on deck for Utah, I expect a solid effort from them at home here as they have scored 90 and 96 points their last two home games. Lay the doubles with the *Utah Utes*

02/14 08:00 PM EST NBA (841) WEST VS (842) EAST.
Take: over the total.
Reason: Your free play for Sunday, February 14, 2016 is in the NBA All Star game. Don't look for any defense in this mid-winter classic from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto! Last year the West won 163-158. The East has plenty of offensive talent in LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, but is short of big, defensive players. West coach Gregg Popovich gets to unleash Kobe Bryant, in his last All-Star game and he is surrounded by so much young offensive talent and depth with Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. Play the NBA All Star Game Over the total.
Jack's Free Pick Sunday: Minnesota +20
The Minnesota Golden Gophers are still winless in Big Ten play this season. As a result, the betting public really wants nothing to do with them because they are designated as the worst team in the Big Ten because of it. That's why they are catching 20 points today against Iowa.
But this is simply too many points, and the Gophers should have no problem staying within 20. After all, they have played a bunch of close games here of late. Indeed, six of their last seven games have been decided by 8 points or less, but they've somehow managed to lose all seven.
The Gophers only lost by 6 at Indiana and by 5 at Michigan in two of their last three road games. They also lost to Indiana by 7 at home, to Purdue by 4 at home and to Michigan by 8 at home. So, they've shown they can compete with the Big Ten's best, and they will do so again tonight against Iowa.
Minnesota has won two of the last three meetings in this series, all three of which were decided by 6 points or less. The Gophers are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 trips to Iowa City. The Hawkeyes are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games following a straight up loss. Iowa is 1-8 ATS after allowing 80 points or more over the last three seasons. Bet Minnesota Sunday.

Florida State -1
The Seminoles look for a bit of revenge in this spot when they welcome in the #12 Miami Hurricanes into FSU on Sunday night. Miami shut down Florida State when these two teams met in Miami, but now the series shifts to Tallahassee, where Florida State is much better.
They come in 8-2 at home and have a win over #7 Virginia to their credit. Look for Florida State to use Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon, the dynamic freshman duo, to get this team energized.
Expect FSU to add another tournament resume worthy win here as they take down #12 on Sunday.
Back Florida State ATS.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.

Sundays free NCAA winner: Miami Hurricanes.
3:30 pm pst.
Miami will get a season sweep over Florida State here as the Hurricanes routed the Seminoles, 72-59 over a month ago to give the team three victories in their L4 meetings with their in-state rivals. They enter this contest with great confidence after beating Pitt on Tuesday, overcoming a poor 1st half performance to give the team their 3rd straight win and 6 in their L7 overall. Florida State comes off an 85-72 shellacking at the hands of Syracuse and must be concerned today as Miami contained their standout players, freshmen, Beasley and Bacon, in the earlier meeting, which did result in FSU's lowest scoring output this campaign. The 'Canes match up well offensively here, but own a huge edge on "D", as they yield just 66.1 PPG. The quartet of DD scoring Guards, and Center, Jekiri will once again be too much for FSU. Take a Miami team that is money, on an 18-8 ATS run. Thank you.
FREE PLAY on the draw when these two meet. I think it ends 0-0 or 1-1.

Scott 'The Bulldog' Rickenbach NCAAB *1* Free Pick on UNDER 157.5 in Arizona vs USC @ 8 PM ET Sunday - When these teams met the game went into quadruple overtime! It remains the only game this entire season in NCAA Basketball that has gone 4 overtimes. Perhaps that high final score - USC 103, Arizona 101 - is what is helping to drive this total higher as it's moved from a 154.5 all the way up to a 157.5 as of early Sunday afternoon. It's now go time with the added value from the movement on this total. In that game last month there were only 146 points scored in regulation. Also, their prior meeting in February of 2015 totaled just 144 points and the game prior to that was an UNDER. In other words, there is substantial support for looking at the under in this match-up as the markets have pushed this total and added even more line value for the under. The Wildcats have stayed UNDER the total in 18 of their last 27 games when playing with one day or less of rest. The Trojans are off of a loss at Arizona State Friday and that was their 3rd under in their past 4 games. Also, when off of a loss to a conference foe, USC has gone under in 13 of the last 22 the past three seasons combined. The Trojans have held each of their past three opponents to 41% or less from the field and I look for another solid defensive effort here from USC while Arizona also is likely to increase the pressure on the defensive end as they seek revenge for last month's tough loss to Southern Cal. Consider a small play on the UNDER in Arizona as it is my Free Pick for Sunday. Best of luck, Scott
