Matchup Selection W/L

Bucks vs. Bulls
-5 -101
  at  5DIMES
in 7h
Who is the worst team in the NBA right now? As bad as the Suns, Grizzlies and Hawks are, my choice is the Bulls. This wouldn't be the case if the Bulls were healthy. But without their three best players - Kris Dunn, Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine - the Bulls are a JV team. And a bad one at that.   The Suns at least have Devin Booker. The Grizzlies have Marc Gasol. The Hawks have Dennis Schroder.  Who do the Bulls have left? This is Chicago's starting lineup: Cameron Payne, Justin Holiday, Denzel Valentin, Paul Zipser and Cristian Felicio. That reads more like a law office than a starting NBA roster.  Denver was 11-23 on the road and minus its leading scorer, Gary Harris, when it played the Bulls at United Center two days ago. The Nuggets won by 33 points.  The Bucks aren't likely to have Giannis Antetokounmpo for this game. Antetokounmpo suffered a sprained ankle in the Bucks' last game this past Wednesday. The Bucks don't need their star player, however, to bury the Bulls. Milwaukee still will have the three best players on the court in Kris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Jabari Parker. The Bucks also have the far superior bench.  Now let's come to motivation, which is crucial at this late juncture of the season. The Bucks are clinging to a playoff spot. They can't afford a loss to the lowly Bulls. Not with a home game on tap against the Spurs followed by a four-game West Coast trip. There's no guarantee either that Antetokonumpo will return to the lineup soon. So the Bucks aren't going to screw around here. They will rally around their superstar being out and easily defeat this patsy.  Chicago's incentive? Below the surface it's to increase its chances of getting a higher draft lottery pick. That's why the Bulls aren't in any rush to get their best players back on the court. It's why they are playing 10 people, but not veteran Robin Lopez, their best center.  This series has a road team bias, too, with the visitor covering the past six times.  (Editor's note: Stephen Nover is one of the top NBA 'cappers in North America and has a special 2-for-1 discount package going in the NBA today in addition to this free selection.)

Lakers vs Pelicans
+2½ -107 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Premium
As far as fatigue factors go in the NBA, the Pelicans face the worst I've seen in a long time. Because of an earlier postponed game, the Pelicans are in action for the third straight day and fifth time in six days.  The line is a little shorter because of it, but there are other reasons to back the Lakers and fade the Pelicans. The Lakers are 12-8 ATS in their last 20 games. They are in stop-the-pain mode, though, having lost three in a row. Those losses came to the Warriors, Heat by one point and Pacers. Before their losing skid, the Lakers had won eight of 10. So they are not in tank mode. Their talent level is higher than other lottery-bound teams.  The Lakers should have far more energy than the Pelicans. Not only are the Lakers much younger, but they last played on Monday. This marks just their third game in seven days. The Lakers also have double revenge motivation. The Pelicans had a tougher-than-they-wanted victory against the Mavericks on Tuesday. They then beat the Pacers, 96-92, in another tough matchup last night. Anthony Davis logged more than 70 minutes during the two games. Jrue Holiday, the Pelicans' second-most valuable player, is battling the flu and needed intravenous fluids at halftime yesterday. This isn't a must-win spot for the Pelicans. They are three games ahead of Denver for the final playoff spot in the West. So Alvin Gentry shouldn't burn up his starters to win this game given the special fatigue situation. New Orleans hasn't been good in this type of role either failing to cover 10 of the past 13 times at home versus below .500 road opponents.

Canucks vs Blackhawks
UNDER 6 -107 Lost
Play Type: Premium
The simple handicap here is that a total above 5 1/2 is too high when the Canucks are involved. Vancouver is averaging one per goal per game during its last seven games! This total lack of scoring is mainly a result of the Canucks losing their leading scorer and star, Brock Boeser, who hasn't played during this losing skid and likely won't play again this season due to injury.  The Canucks rank 27th in scoring. They know they can't play wide open especially on the road. So it's not a surprise that the Under has cashed the past six times Vancouver has been away.  The Blackhawks are playing for the first time since being officialy eliminated from the playoffs. That's a new experience for them so it remains to be seen how much effort and energy they'll produce here. The Blackhawks have a below offense. Chicago has been held to three goals or fewer in 12 of its last 15 games.  The Blackhawks have been a huge Under team at home, too, with the Under going 19-5-2 in Chicago's last 26 games at United Center. 
Matchup Selection W/L
NCAA-B  |  Mar 22, 2018
Loyola-Chicago vs Nevada
-113 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Top Premium
It's a minor miracle that either of these two teams are still in the NCAA Tournament. Both are legitimate, but fortunate.  Nevada, though, is better and the matchup favors the Wolfpack.  The Wolfpack are more athletic, have more length across the board and a far more explosive offense. They also are more battle tested as this was a down year in the Missouri Valley Conference and have the better coach with Eric Musselman.  Nevada averaged 83 points. That ranked 16th-best in the country and is more than 11 points more per game than Loyola. But a key here is the Wolfpack averaged just 9.6 turnovers per game, which was the fourth-lowest in the country. So Nevada isn't sloppy.  Another key is 3-point shooting. Both teams ranked tied for 20th in 3-point shooting percentage. It's a key part of their arsenals. However, Nevada defends the 3-pointer better than the Ramblers ranking 19th in 3-point percentage defense.  The Wolfpack have displayed tremendous reslilence in the tournament coming back from a 14-point, second-half deficit to nail an overtime win against Texas and then emerging from 22 points down to stun No. 2 seed Cincinnati.  Not to take anything away from the Ramblers, but they faced a pair of very young teams in the tournament, Tennessee and Miami. The Ramblers got past both of these opponents by hitting buzzer-beaters. Nevada is a much more veteran team with five of its top six players either a junior or senior.  This is the Wolfpack's easiest game yet in the tournament. The price is right to get involved backing them.
