I'm recommending a play on Villanova minus the points on Saturday. Both Creighton & the Wildcats are off SU losses as chalk. The Jays lost at home to Providence, failing to score over the final 3+ minutes of gametime. Villanova fell victim to a lackadaisical effort and after taking a 49-42 lead over Butler, collapsed and finished on the wrong end of a season sweep. But Villanova has owned this series of late, including an 80-70 win in Omaha earlier this season. Mo Watson, Jr., played in that one yet the Jays couldn't gain the win at home. Watson has been out for a while and CU has been quite average more often than not since. In fact, Greg McDermott's squad has won just four of nine games SU & ATS without their star point-guard. Meanwhile, the defending champs are 13-1 SU at home this season and play in their home finale today. The 'Cats are not only the 8th most accurate shooting team in the nation, but hold opponents to 63 ppg. They're 8-2 ATS off a loss on a 4-1 ATS run in the series. I'm recommending a play on Villanova minus the points on Saturday. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
#NBA Free Pick from Mike Lundin
Play: New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans took a 129-99 beating by the Rockets home in New Orleans in All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins' first game with the team on Thursday. I think they'll do much better when they visit the Dallas Mavericks Saturday night. The Mavs suffered a 97-84 road loss against Minnesota on Friday and odds are we'll see them struggle to keep up with the Pels here in the second leg of a back-to-back. The Pels are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up loss and I like them to pick up their first win with Cousins on the team tonight.

02/25 08:00 PM EST CB (585) ALABAMA VS (586) TEXAS A&M.
Take: UNDER THE TOTAL.
Reason: Your free pick for Saturday, February 25, 2017 comes in college hoops as Alabama and Texas A&M battle in the SEC. A pair of defensive teams clash as Alabama is #13 in the SEC in scoring, Texas A&M is #10. Alabama is 5-0 under the total against a winning straight up record. A&M plays strong defense at home where they are 4-1 under the total. The Under is 4-0 in the Aggies last four against a team with a winning straight up record. And when these teams clash the under is 5-0. Play Alabama/Texas A&M Under the total.

Creighton at Villanova 3:00 ET
Wildcats (-) over Bluejays- No. 2 Villanova is off their 3rd loss of the season as Butler took them down for the second time breaking a seven-game win streak. The Wildcats know that despite that loss they can clinch the Big East regular season title and the No. 1 seed with a win here. It is 'Senior Day' at The Pavilion but I'm sure Jay Wright will have his squad focused. Trends say to take the Bluejays as they are 7-2 ATS in their last 11 road games and Villanova is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Creighton is still without Maurice Watson Jr. who added distraction to the mix by being charged with first degree sexual assault charges. Wildcats claw the birds...take VILLANOVA!

A pair of struggling teams play as Eastern Michigan hosts Northern Illinois. NIU has lost four of their last five, but has wins at Central Michigan, Toledo, Bowling Green and Kent State already this season. They also have a home win over the Eagles 81-69 back on February 4th. Balance is the name of the game with the Huskies as they have six guys who average seven points per game or more. EMU has lost seven straight and nine of their last 10 with four of those coming at home. They've won just two MAC games at home and have covered just four of them overall so there's something going on considering this is a talented team. I'll take a chance with the road team and hope the Eagles don't wake up.
UNC at Pittsburgh
UNC has a road game with Virginia coming next and then their home finale vs. Duke and may overlook the Panthers, who did win recent home games with Syracuse and Florida State. They beat Virginia at home too.
UNC only beat Pitt 80-78 at home. The Panthers are led by a bunch of seniors and juniors like Artis, Young, Jeter and Jones as well as underclassman Cameron Johnson. I think UNC finds a way to win with Berry, Justin Jackson, Meeks, Hicks and Pinson but Pitt stays within the number.
Play - UCLA (Game 669).
Edges - Bruins: 5-1 ATS in this series. Wildcats: 1-5 ATS home following a home game versus an opponent off an away game. With the Bruins looking to avenge an 11-point home loss - their worst defeat of the season - look for them to improve to 6-1 SU against .875 or greater foes this season here tonight. We recommend a 1* play on UCLA. Thank you and good luck as always.
