Thanks ladies…I needed it after my 2-5 performance last night. But yes, I’m a year older and hopefully for my ATS players, a year wiser. My pics are going to be brief today, but the pictures from my last few parties will be plentiful. I’ve got big plans today…instead of just gambling on sports, my boyz are throwing me a little poker party and I think there is already an over/under on Tequila shots. Sorry again bout last night, but I’m guessing the gambling gods may have some luv for the Birthday boy tonight!...www.insideplays.com
NEW JERSEY NETS @ LA CLIPPERS (-6.5)
The Nets, or should I say Vince and J-Kidd, led all game last night and lost on a last second shot by the underachieving Warriors. As for the Clippers, Dunleavy’s finally found a solid line-up/rotation and looks like Elton Brand and Chris Kaman have finally found last year’s dominance. They’ve won 3 in-a-row by an average of 15 points per contest and look focused to grab the final playoff spot in the West. I have a feeling if the Clips can put a run together early, the Nets may pack it in and let the two boyz keeping the franchise afloat take a early seat on the bench. Oh yeah, and I’m guessing Cali has plenty of fun for NBA vets that are single and coming off a tough loss…Am I right Mr. Kidd…Clippers by 10-16 points
DALLAS MAVERICKS (-5.5) @ CHICAGO BULLS
While I luv the Bulls, I actually want to seem them lose to a team with some dominate big-men so Pax realizes he needs to trade for Pau Gasol. In addition, usually when Dirk & Co. have come to town in the past, the Bulls have not had the hype they’ve had this year and Avery wasn’t making sure they played playoff basketball every single night. The Bullies don’t have anybody to stop the 7-foot German and nobody in the league is stopping Josh Howard right now…Mavs by 8-14 points
LONG BEACH ST 49ERS (+2) @ UC IRVINE ANTEATERS
The 49ers have quietly won 11 out of 12 and their top 7 scorers are seniors. They played conference leaders Cal St. Fullerton last week and won at 10 at home. Tonight, they’ll face an Anteaters squad that is under .500 and doesn’t have the guard play that the 49ers have…and they’re named the Anteaters…Long Beach Boyz by 6-12 points.
OREGON DUCKS (+3.5) @ WASHINGTON HUSKIES
I know, I know, I bet on too many road teams. But it’s my M*ther F*cking Birthday and I love the Ducks. They’ve already beat #8 Arizona on the road, and for that matter, have won every game on the road this year. As for the Huskies, after losing 8 guys to the NBA over the last two years, their in somewhat of a rebuilding mode and are relying heavily on freshman Spencer Hawes…Ducks by 6-12 points.
