Home of Greg Gamble's ATS Wonderland

ATS – Yesterday: 1-2…I’m starting to think the Rockets should trade McGrady…cause Ming w/ some big-time shooters could be deadly
Overall – CBB: 11-10 NBA: 46-48 NFL: 22-20

U really think Reggie Evans & Jason Smith will stop him 2night?

PHILADELPHIA 76ERS @ TORONTO RAPTORS (-8)
After initially finding some new found energy with a new president/GM in town, the realization that the games are more of an evaluation than playoff push has changed the atmosphere in Philly. One day they’ll read how Ed Stefanski would like to see more playing time for Rodney Carney, the next he’s talking about Sammy D’s long-term future, all the while Andre Miller is supposed to lead the team despite having his suitcases packed for a new address. With this type of drama, teams like the 76ers need a coach to keep them focused, and unfortunately, Mo Cheeks is dealing with his own day-by-day employment status. BTW, did I even mention their playing a back-to-back off a home loss to Redd’less Bucks. As for the up-n-down Raps, after regaining some of their early season success as they headed into the New Year (Dec. 31 victory at (23-11) New Orleans), the Raps have lost two straight at home to the Pistons & King James. Toronto should be riled-up to get back on track, and have a wonderful match-up with Chris Bosh and the porous 76er PFs (Reggie Evans & Jason Smith)…Raps in blow-out

The Gold/Blonde & Purple has to be a sign to take LA

LOS ANGELES LAKERS (+2) @ NEW ORLEANS HORNETS
I actually think Kobe finally believes this team can do some damage in the playoffs. For years we’ve watched his fellow teammates lace them up simply not to upset Mr. Bryant, the Laker minions are finally playing off his swagger and have a cohesiveness that has to be attributed to the Zen Master. While coming off a back-to-back is normally an ATS no-no, the Lakers looked poised to make a run to a top playoff spot in the West. Especially with the Hornets displaying an identical record, I think the 16-point winning scrimmage against the Grizz was simply a warm-up for tonight. While New Orleans has surprised everybody, they don’t have the depth of the Lake Show and may actually be a little more nervous this evening. And don’t think Kobe won’t take the superstar battle with CP3 has a challenge tonight…which means we’ll see him take over anytime this thing gets close. But you want to know what really sealed the deal for me? The Hornets have a much better record on the road and have a banged-up David West taking the floor after missing Saturday’s contest with a sore hip…Lake Show by 4-8 points

Passion.jpg
Dwight promised we'd see the passion in their eyes tonight!

ORLANDO MAGIC (-4) @ LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS
No way the best road team in the league loses to both the Kings & Clippers out West. After last night’s game, D-Howard (29 pts & 15 reb) discussed how unacceptable it was that they didn’t play with passion until the 4th quarter…so look for them to come-out smoking tonight. As for the Clipp, with only a victory against the Wolves in their last 9, the look more out-of-place than Jason Priestly in race-car trying to develop rookie Al Thornton while watching Sam Cassell (last 2 games: 44 min., 2-12 fgs, & 6 assists) ponder what team he’ll be on in a month. Especially with the veteran sharpshooters Thornton will be match-up with, look for Rashard or Hedu to have a huge night. As for Kaveman Kaman, his box score always looks nice and he’s able to dominate some of the smaller bigs in this league, but against the Freaky-Deaky Dwight…as my Homeboy Smokey would say, Hhhhhell No!...Magic by 8-12 points
