Teasin' T-Bones Saturday Special

USC –13 @ UCLA

Booty Booty Booty Booty Booty Booty Booty!! Look who is back near the top once again this year, the ‘ol Trojans of Southern California. USC has had two different teams this year….the early season that struggled to win with young new starters, and then the team of late that has not only averaged close to 40 points a game, but also has held the likes of Oregon, Cal, and Notre Dame to only 43 points combined!! This is a mediocre Bruins team at best who would love to be the spoiler, but there will be no doubt left about who is number 2 after this game. I also like the over on this one at 47.

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 19-9 ATS !!!


DALLAS MAVERICKS (-3.5) @ WASHINGTON WIZARDS
The Mavericks have won 12-in-a-row, including their last two at home by almost 20 points apiece. Dallas hasn’t played since Friday and should be geared-up for the back-to-back two-game east coast trip against the Wizards and Nets. Dirk Nowitzki and Avery Johnson both have discussed their devastating disappointment over last season’s finals collapse during the past week and seem to have their squad playing at a level not normally displayed this early in the season. As for Wizards, they were blown-out by almost 20 by the Bulls in Chicago Saturday and only have one win this season against a team with a winning record (Cleveland). Washington has been a sieve on defense, led by Antwan Jamison who will be matched against Dirk most of the night, and will struggle to contain one of the deepest benches in the NBA…Mavs by 8-14 pts.

ORLANDO MAGIC (+5.5) @ SACRAMENTO KINGS
The Eastern Conference leading Magic had their 6-game winning streak snapped by the Clippers on Sunday, but are still 3-1 so far on their current West coast trip. The Magic have been led by the Man-child that is Dwight Howard (17 pts 13 reb 2 blks) and a backcourt filled will speedsters (Nelson, Arroyo, & Dooling) who are playing with remarkable consistency each night.

Weekend sports break down (1 day late)

Sorry kids, the weekend sports breakdown is a little late due to Money Mike being a little under the weather. Got sick watching J Cutler Sunday night in Denver. Anyway, I have lots to talk about so as MC Hammer would say, "lets get it started!

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 21-12 ATS !!!

DALLAS MAVERICKS (-3.0) @ NEW JERSEY NETS
I know the Mavericks looked awful last night, but I’m betting they don’t two nights in row. Dallas actually started hitting some shots in the 4th quarter and I expect them to come out firing tonight. Hopefully, they’ve loosened up from the cold weather shock and can capitalize on a Nets squad that only has three players…no really…three players! Mavs by 6-12 points

SIDE NOTE: I wouldn’t call this a Hoops Special, but Louisville and Arizona are playing in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden on ESPN tonight. Since I know I’ll be watching it…I know I’ll have to bet it. I’m not sold on either squad but Arizona is 5-1 coming off a 12 point win against Illinois, while Louisville has only played 3 games this year (losing one at Dayton) and are led by 2 freshmen and 2 sophomores. Arizona giving 6 points sounds like the play…but only because I have a problem!!!

GREG GAMBLE’S HOOP TOTALS- NBA 15-9 ATS ; NCAA 6-3 ATS

December 6, 2006

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 22-12 ATS !!!


TEXAS TECH RED RAIDERS (-5) @ LOUISIANA TECH BULLDOGS
I can’t understand why this spread is so low. While Bobby Knight’s 6-3 squad is coming off a tough loss at Stanford Sunday and hasn’t played consistently all year, the Bulldogs only win this season came against McNeese St and they’re coming off a road loss to lowly Louisiana-Lafayette whose only other win came against Ouachita…who the f*ck is Ouachita!...Red Raiders by 10-16 points

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 25-14 ATS!!!

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 25-14 ATS !!!

PHOENIX SUNS (-3) @ NEW JERSEY NETS
Ok…so Jason Collins and Nenad Krstic are supposed to run up and down with Amare Stoudemire and Shawn Marion…I don’t think so. And we’re also supposed to believe Jason Kidd and his bionic knees are going to be chasing Steve Nash and Leandro Barbosa…I think not…Suns by 8-12 points

DETROIT PISTONS @ DALLAS MAVERICKS (-6)
The Pistons have home loses to the Trailblazers and Bobcats over the last week and quickly have become an old squad with no bench and no defense down-low. In addition, the Pistons just found out Lindsey Hunter will be out for awhile, which means Chauncey and his mouthful of chompers is going to be running with Jason Terry and Devin Harris all by his lonesome. Unless Flip Murry comes off the bench to score 25…Mavericks by 10-16 points

MIAMI HEAT @ SACRAMENTO KINGS (-5)
While I don’t like this as much as the other two…I hate betting two games. I’d actually rather go 1-2 then split and still have to pay the man behind the window some juice. Both the Heat and Kings have sucked this year, but the Kings are actually pretty solid at home and have an above average bench. As for the Miami Wades, against the Clippers Tuesday Gary Payton, Antoine Walker, and Jason Williams went 7-29…and I don’t think they’re playing because of their defense. As a team, they shot 3-25 from the 3-point line and have absolutely nobody down-low besides Alonzo and Udonis. D-Wade may keep them close for a half, but look for the Kings to pull away late…Kings by 8-14 points

Here's another photo of one half of the dynamic duo for your viewing pleasure. Dirk is giving his impersonation of Michael Vick! Gotta love it. Go Mavs!!!

Greg Gamble's solo pick of the night

I love Washington -3 1/2 over Philly tonight. No A.I. Enough said. Holla back.

December 12, 2006

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 27-16 ATS !!!

LOS ANGELES LAKERS (+2) @ HOUSTON ROCKETS
Anytime you seem me making a play on a team I despise, you know you’re good for some free money. Showtime has been the surprise of the Western Conference as Kobe and Lamar actually seem to enjoy being on the court together, while the role players and bench have been better than expected. The Zen Master actually has Kobe believing when he looks for his teammates they’re almost unbeatable, as was seen in their victory over the Spurs on Sunday. As for the Rockets, they’ve been great this season, but all indications are that T-Mac is going to be sitting this one out with back spasms. While Yao Ming may have his way with Kwame and Bynum, I think Luther Head is going to have a long night chasing Mr. Bryant. In addition, the Lakers are sick of hearing how they’ve gotten off to a great start because of all the home games, so expect them to come out with a chip on their shoulder tonight …Lakers by 6-12

GREG GAMBLE’S HOOP TOTALS- NBA 19-11 ATS ; NCAA 8-5 ATS

December 13, 2006

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 28-16 ATS !!!

PHOENIX SUNS (+11.5) @ MIAMI HEAT
With D-Wade & Shaq out, I don’t know how the Heat will score more than 80 points tonight…while I do know the Suns will score at least 120 against Riley’s fat old bench crew. Antonie Walker & Jason Kapono may just have a heart-attack chasing around the Suns and I can’t wait to see Alonzo matched-up against Amare. It’s a lot of points on the road, but I really don’t think it’s going to matter…Suns by 16-22 points

PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS (+6.5) @ MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES
The Jailblazers have actually won two-in-a-row on the road and are actually playing with some passion & a deep beach of late. As for the Grizz, they’ve lost three-in-a-row and seem to be treading water until Pau Gasol gets back. In addition, Zach Randolph has been a beast on the block and will have any easy night against the wispy Hakim Warrick and Stromile Swift…Portland by 1-7 points

XAVIER MUSKETEERS (-4) @ CINCINNATI BEARCATES
The Musketeers are a deep disciplined team that is facing a Bearcats squad that has 4 out of their 5 leading scorers playing their first year under a new head coach. Xavier lost a tough match at Creighton on Saturday and will be looking to bounce back with their senior laden squad, while Cincy has had an easy schedule to start the season that includes a home loss to sub-.500 Wofford…Xavier by 8-14 points

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 29-18 ATS !!!

HOUSTON ROCKETS @ GOLDEN ST WARRIORS. (-4.5)
The Warriors are 10-5 at home this season and have averaged over 110 points over their last 5 for the home crowd. Baron Davis has been spending less time casting from behind the arc, as Don Nelson has gotten the dominating point guard to abuse undersized guards in the paint. Not a good sign for the wafer-thin Rafer Alston and a backcourt missing T-Mac for a second straight contest. Yao is not much of trackstar and playing on a surgically repaired foot, so do not be surprised if Van Gundy sits him down once the Warriors are up by 10…Warriors by 8-16 points...2 more winners below!

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 31-19 ATS !!!

Before we get to my picks tonight…I wanted to weigh-in on the Allen Iverson fiasco. While all my sources have indicated the Nuggets are the closest to getting a deal done, I cannot fathom how GM Kevin McHale and the T-Wolves have not figured something out for the former Hoya. Give’em the highly touted rookies Randy Foye & Craig Smith, throw-in the Mall of America, shop everyone to other teams for a draft-pick to sweeten the deal, or even make Philly well-aware they’ll take back any bad contract (except Chris Webber who can’t even bend-over anymore to pick up the basketball…let alone rebound it.)

I’ll be the first to admit Bubby Chuck may be the hardest superstar in the league to play with, but Garnett would thrive as a second option and A.I. may actually match his offensive intensity on the defensive end with KG’s infectious passion. Mark my words, any other team involved in the Iverson sweepstakes will be regretting the decision by March, while the T-Wolves would become the most exciting team in the NBA and a miserable match-up for a top seeded team in this year’s playoffs...I guarantee it! BTW, I got three more winners for you tonight…Read on young lads…Read on!!!

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 32-21 ATS !!!

College Bowl Spectacular…Don’t forget to get your picks in!!!

Now before I get to my hoops pick tonight, let me tell you have much I love the Colts/Benglas over 55 tonight. After watching his defense play two-hand-touch against the Jags, I’m guessing Peyton realizes he needs to score a TD on every possession to win. The Bengals offense has been on fire of late, and I can’t image how the Colts plan to contain all the weapons Carson has in his huddle. Final Score: Colts 37 Benglas 34

DALLAS MAVERICKS (-3.5) @ SACRAMENTO KINGS
The Mavs won by double digits on both Friday and Saturday Night, and are looking to keep pace with Spurs and Suns for leadership in the west. Josh Howard is emerging as a superstar (21 ppg 6 reb over his last 5 games) alongside Dirk, while Devin Harris and Jason Terry are becoming a nice backcourt duo. As for the Kings, they’ve been up and down all year and have really struggled against teams with some low-post muscle. In their last contest on Dec. 1st, the Mavs beat the Kings by 19 in Dallas. As for the injuries, Jerry “I’ve never seen I shot I don’t like” Stackhouse is back from his annual knee troubles, while Sacramento’s up-incoming star Kevin Martin is questionable with a sprained ankle. Mavs by 7-13 points

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 33-21 ATS !!!

IOWA ST CYCLONES @ OHIO ST BUCKEYES (-23.5)
New headmaster Greg McDermott is going to be a great coach for the Cyclones and will definitely bring Hilton Magic back into the spotlight…but unfortunately not this year. After taking over for the Wayne “How the hell did I get this job!” Morgan, the Cyclone brass new a complete roster overhaul was necessary as Morgan’s street-crew wasn’t having the coaching change. Almost everybody transferred or declared for the draft besides Rashon Clark & Jiri Hubalek from last year’s squad, and the new style of play required from McDermott is still being implemented as the season progresses. As for the Buckeyes...

Enter The Cougar!!!

You have heard the rumors.....well the rumors are true. Insideplays.com dug deep into their pocketbooks this holiday season to give their loyal players an early gift. Subscribers of Insideplays.com now have access to a FREE month of football picks from The Cougar. Prowl with the Cougar this bowl season and you will start out 2007 with a bankroll full of cheddar.

Without further delay lets get into The Cougar's first pick which just happens to be the bowl from The Cougar's beloved home town..... The Las Vegas Bowl.

The Las Vegas Bowl features the Oregon Ducks facing off aganist the BYU COUGARS! I think we all know where The Cougar is putting his coin.

Although the line is moving in a favorable direction (From Oregon +6 to +3) it is key to get your bet in with a line of 3 or under.

Not too much analysis on this game. The team name is The Cougars!!! How could The Cougar go aganist a team full of Cougars and Cougar fans. For those of you that need a little reassurance the Cougars are:

8-0 ATS in their last 8 night games
14-3 ATS in their last 17 games on grass (Yes Cougars like grass)

This game is at 8pm on thick grassy turf. The Cougars; like The Cougar, have been covering all year. (9-3 ATS)

The Cougar gives this play 3 out of 5 baby cougars.

Happy Hunting,

C

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 34-23 ATS !!!

INDIANAN PACERS (-7) @ PHILADELPHIA 76ERS
Even if the trade for Iverson was not made, I still love would have dropped some Jordan’s on this game. The Pacers have come out of the gate slow, but if you look at their roster it’s even harder to understand how these guys are only .500. Larry the Legend’s squad has been playing with sense of urgency of late and O’Neal, Harrington, & the rebounding machine that is Jeff Foster should have no trouble with the 76ers frontcourt…Even if the underachieving Joe Smith shows up from Mile High in time…Pacers by 10-16 points

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 37-23 ATS !!!

3-0 Last Night Homeboys to move to 28-15 in the NBA

WASHINGTON WIZARDS (+3.5) @ SACRAMENTO KINGS
Anytime the Kings and their slow ass D are giving points to any team with a scoring point guard and a frontcourt player with a pulse…I’m investing on the team without a Bibby. Watching the Kings of late, they are by-far the slowest team in the NBA, thanks to a frontcourt that looks older by the minute and a backcourt that struggles to put pressure on the ball (and may be without leading scorer Kevin Martin tonight). Even if Martin plays, the ankle sprain should limit him from playing the little bit of D he does and I’m betting there’s a 50/50 chance Ronny Artest is escorted out of the arena by the 3rd quarter due to a . As for the Wizards, after a slow start they’ve have won 6 out of 8 (including 3 out of 4 on the road) and have a three-headed scoring monster (Arenas, Butler, & Jamison) that leads the league with an average of almost 70 points a night. Coach Eddie Jordan realized his boys are better when they run, and they have, averaging over 115 ppg over their last 8. With the Kings D, I’m guessing it’s going to be more like 125 points tonight…Wizards by 5-11 points.

Standings and all picks for the Bowl Spectacular should be up by the end of the week…Holla!

HAPPY HOILIDAYS FROM THE COUGAR

byu.JPG


ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS THE COUGAR GAVE TO ME
BYU COVERING THE THREEEEEEEEEEE

For those of you that played the Cougars last night it was never in doubt. As a matter a fact, The Cougar couldn't even tell you what the final score was. He knew it was over at half so he turned off his 60 inch plasma and went back to his den so he could rest up for more hunting this weekend.

Now if you are a paying customer of The Cougar you are having a great December. Your bookie has bought the majority of your holiday gifts and holiday meals. If you just found The Cougar on insideplays.com that ok. So far you have been given 2 free winners and NO losses. Since we are knee deep in the holiday season The Cougar can't help but to continue giving FREE gifts for those loyal to insideplays.com

So lets get some plays for this holiday weekend. The Cougar wants to warn the pack not to get greedy. The college games this weekend are pure crap. Just because The Cougar has made you some coin doesn't mean you should go out waste it on coin flips. Lets look to the NFL for a few stocking stuffers.

The following plays are 2 out of 5 cougar paws.

Atlanta -6.5 at home aganist Carolina: True the Panthers have a lot to play for AND the Panther is a cousin of the Cougar but I can't get over the fact that Chris Weinke has lost his last 17 starts.

Titans +5 at Buffalo: Both teams have been covering machines of late. The weather is supposed to be decent. If it is take the points in this historically low scoring matcup

Seattle +5 at home aganist San Deigo: I don't care if Seattle is playing the 85 Bears... when they get points at home you have to take them. They also need a win to win the West.

Thats it. Have fun and have a great holiday.

The Coug.

Greg Gamble’s Hoops Special: 38-23 ATS !!!

HOUSTON ROCKETS @ SAN ANTONIO (-7.5)
Right it down…take a picture…I don’t give a f*ck! The soft-spoken Tim Duncan doesn’t like hearing how Yao is the MVP and will look to embarrass the McGrady’less Rockets squad tonight. The Spurs never seem to cover a big number against the light-weights…but also seem to dial-it-up another notch against their rivals…Spurs by 12-18 points

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS (+4) @ ORLANDO MAGIC
I don’t think Orlando’s undersized backcourt can match-up with Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, & Mickeal Pietrus. As long as Don Nelson has his crew thinking about BBALL and not the stipper poles after the game…Warriors by 2-8 points

MILWAUKEE BUCKS (+6) @ MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES
I have a feeling KG is still going to be sulking about not getting A.I., and the Wolves are just too average to be giving anybody 6 points. By the way, the most underrated point guard in the league is the Bucks Mo Williams…Bucks by 1-7 points

Happy Holiday Homeboys! The Bowl Spectacular will be updated by tomorrow with standings and the spreads for all games…so enjoy the rest of the bowl season. As for my unbelievable NBA picks, I’ve got a post X-Mas theory today that is hotter than a sleepover with the women of 90210. Playing on the road the day after Christmas for teams that are bottom feeders or plagued by injury is never a good combination. Check out my 4 winners for tonight and maybe we can add a little more luv to your holiday collection… www.insideplays.com

Who says you can't be over 60 and start in the NBA

Nobody torches the NBA like Double G. After a 3-0 performance last night (Indiana spread dropped to 4 with Jermaine O’Neal out), I’ve covered 9 of my last 10 and started to eye some property in the Hamptons. On a side note, The Answer, aka Bubby Chuck, looks smoother in baby blue and gold than Ali Larter with some whip-cream in Varsity Blues. I can’t wait for his corn-rolled partner to join him as the Nuggets might be the hottest ticket since New Edition got back together. And my Bulls, still struggling on the road should get some good home cooking and will look to run the very slow and very 1999 (Mourning, Payton, Walker, Williams, & Doleac) into the United Center floor. While the spread is a little high for tonight (I’ll probably still take…it’s on TV!), I will mention how I usually love warmer weather teams coming to cold climates…especially the first night on the road. You can’t tell me after chilling in Miami, Gary Payton wants to get out the bus to chase Kirk Hinrich and Chris Duhon. With that said, lets get to my picks because I’m hotter than a tea kettle and ready roll… www.insideplays.com

You can't stop him...you can only hope to contain him!

This is like taking candy from a baby! After covering 12 out my last 14, I’ve decided to take a break with only 3 NBA games and will be testing the college hardwood for you tonight. Don’t worry...your NBA aficionado will be back Friday with at least 4 more picks. BTW, don't forget to check-up on the updated Bowl Spectacular Standings.

PURDUE BOILERMAKERS (-5) @ INDIANA ST. SYCAMORES
Gene Keady’s successor, Matt Painter, may be the best young coach in America. The Boilermakers are 10-2 in Painter’s second year, including victories against Oklahoma and Missouri, and have had great senior leadership from Carl Landry and George Teague. As for the Sycamores, Larry Bird Jr. still hasn’t shown up…Boilermakers by 8-14 points

End The Year With Classic Cougar Fashion!

Well the end of the year is upon us. If you have been riding with the Cougar then 2006 has been a great year for you. If you just found the Cougar on Insideplays that is ok.... you are still 6-1 with the Cougars football picks.

There are some layup bets left on the Bowl schedule including some Cougar 5 star specials coming up around the BCS games. Let the Cougar help build your bankroll up for those games with the following picks.


BOSTON COLLEGE -6.5 TO NAVY
With Navy's biggest win this year coming aganist Air Force you gotta go with BC here. I love this game at 6.5 but it won't be here for long. There have been a lot of covers this year in bowls. Boston College is holding teams to 15pts per game. In fact only one team this year has scored more the 21 pts on BC (BYU 23)

NEVADA +3.5 TO MIAMI
Who made this spread? Miami has no quality wins all year, a coach out the door, 5 new injuries, and the game is on New Year's Eve. You really think any of the Miami players care about this game? The whole team will be looking forward to getting out in time to go party and shoot people.

ARKANSAS -2 TO WISCONSIN
Not trying to take anything away from the Badgers here but they just haven't been tested enough this year. For being in the Big Ten they have had a pretty cush schedule. Arkansas on they other hand has been overacheiving all year.

MICHIGAN +2 TO USC
Any other field and Michigan is favored by at least 4 here. This is one of my favorite games on the schedule. I feel the Wolverines have better skill players at every position on the field. They have more to play for, have more emotion AND are getting points.

That is pretty much it. I am mostly staying away from the NFL this week. Too much like a preseason week. If you have to bet it play only the games that have teams NEEDING to win. Historically those teams cover.

Speaking of... I like Green Bay this week. A win drags out the Favre era. They COugar isn't allowed to bet aganist the Bears but that doesn't mean you can't!!!

Have a happy and safe New Years,

Love

The Coug
