Greg Gamble’s Hoop Special: 133-114 ATS

Greggy G has found plenty of mismatches this week!

Well, I survived another Bachelor Party and was able to enjoy myself a little more thanks to a profitable evening Friday in the NBA. Of course, I was well-behaved and only donated money to the phenomenal dancing style of a young lady named ONYX for my friends and was able to fight-down plenty of Well-Vodka and Red Bull to make the pony-tailed male bartender ask if I always keep my eyes closed when ordering at the bar. But enough about our weekend, it’s back to the ATS grind and I’ve got a feeling I’m due for a huge week…Let’s make it Rain!

The Hoyas have dominated on the block!

The #12 Hoyas are won of the most disciplined teams in the country and have dominated almost everybody during their 11 game win-streak, included Saturday’s 8-point win over #8 Pittsburg when the shot only 3-15 from behind the arc (.38 3pt% for the season). As for Syracuse, they’ve played much better of late, but are still only 1-5 against ranked opponents and have really struggled with rebounding and foul trouble. John Thompson III has his G-Town boys playing relentless defense and are excellent passers to handle the Orangemen’s unimpressive 2-3 zone…Hoyas by 6-12 points

Just like against the Cyclones, the Jayhawks will dominate the Sooners above the rim!

Since losing to Texas A&M, the #6 Jayhawks have won 6 in-a-row by an average of almost 30 points per contest. They’ve been phenomenal on the break, on the glass, and have been surprisingly unselfish in the half-court. As for the Sooners, they’ve lost 4 in-a-row, have struggled with the new system installed by young headmaster Jeff Capel, and lost at Iowa State…to a Cyclone squad that is completely rebuilding and just lost to Kansas by 37 over the weekend…Jayhawks by 10-16 points

Who doesn't want to bet on what Santa Clara has to offer!

The 20-8 Broncos had won 9 of 10, including a double digit victory against the Zags, before losing on Saturday by 1 at Loyola Marymount. With the lose, Santa Clara dropped into a tie with Gonzaga for 1st place in the West Coast Conference, while their opponents tonight will be last place Pepperdine who they beat by 22 in late January. Coming off the embarrassing performance, I expect the veteran Broncos to completely dominate an undermanned and undersized Waves squad that lost at home this weekend by 25 to a .500 Saint Mary’s squad…Broncos by 9-15 points

The Raptors have a hard-working frontcourt!

Chris Bosh and the Raptors actually match-up pretty nicely with the Spurs and are desperate to prove that they are not just a solid team in the East. Tony Parker has been lights-out so far, but shouldn’t have the same ability to run-past T.J. Ford and could struggle against the penetrating play of Jose Calderon. In addition, the Spurs frontcourt does not have the athleticism it once had, and should struggle to keep up with the inside-out games of Bosh, Bargnani, & Garbajosa. Mo Pete and the underrated Anthony Parker are solid defensively on the wing and should hold their own against Ginobili & Finley. I believe the Raptors are the real deal, and I think tonight they’ll prove it with an upset victory of the Spurs…Raptors by 1-5 points

The Lakers seem to be playing with a little more flare of late!

After suffering through an embarrassing 6 game-losing streak, the Lakers bounced back by beating Boston by 26 at home Friday and yesterday at Golden State by 17. They’ve finally settled on a line-up due to their injury problems and actually don’t miss Radmanovic too much with the latest emergence of Maurice Evans. As for the Jazz, while they’ve been awesome, they’re dealing with some player transitions this week that should take some time to develop. Carols Boozer just came back from a long injury stint, but AK-47 and Mehmet Okur missed the Jazz victory over Boston and are both questionable for tonight…while Deron Williams has struggled with some nagging injuries of late and was 1-10 from the field on Saturday. I love the Jazz when they are healthy, but I think they will struggle tonight to find a rhythm as Jerry Sloan’s game plan changes depending on which big-bodies are on the floor. In addition, Kobe has a look lately that makes it hard to believe they’re not going on a little run, not to mention the Jazz don’t really have a defensive stopper in the backcourt to slow him down …Lakers by 2-8 points
