Play Type: Top Premium

The Rangers became the first team in the NHL to clinch a playoff spot with their win over Ottawa on Thursday and while I don't see a letdown, I do see some desperate play taking place on the other side. New York now has 101 points which is tied with Anaheim for the most in the NHL so it certainly wants to keep winning but I don't like the spot here Saturday afternoon. The Rangers have dropped the last five meetings in Boston and while the Bruins are not playing to their potential, sometimes facing a rival in a must win game is the best way to break out. Boston has dropped six straight games and has unfathomably dropped out of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference. The Bruins are tied with Ottawa for the East's final Wild Card spot, but the Senators have played one fewer game. Goalie Tukka Rask has been inconsistent of late but he is still much stronger at home compared to on the road as he is 19-8-6 here compared to 10-11-6 on the highway and the home ice GAA is a solid 2.06. Rask is 8-2-0 with a 1.84 GAA in his last 10 starts against New York, including the playoffs. The Bruins skid comes to an end today. 10* (60) Boston Bruins

Play Type: Top Premium

Memphis was the lone team in the NBA that Golden St. had not defeated but that changed last night as the Warriors got some revenge from a December loss and have now defeated every team in the league while tying a franchise record for wins. They have been unbeatable over the last two weeks, going 8-0 while covering seven of those including their last six. They are the biggest consensus play on the NBA card today and while the public isn't always wrong, I think they are here as the letdown effect could be big. Additionally, Golden St. closes the four-game roadtrip at the Clippers and even though it is three days away, there is always the chance of a lookahead. WE have backed Milwaukee the last two games and will do so again here is it has bounced back from a brutal six-game stretch to get back to .500 on the season. As mentioned before, Milwaukee had dropped six straight games but two of the losses came in overtime, three other ones came against three of the better teams in the NBA in Cleveland, Memphis and San Antonio while the sixth came to a solid New Orleans team by just one point on the road. Granted, Golden St. is the best team in the NBA but it has not done well in this spot as while it is 11-4-2 when playing with no rest, it is just 3-3-1 ATS in those games when playing the second of back-to-back road games. 10* (506) Milwaukee Bucks

Play Type: Top Premium

After two subpar efforts to open the NCAA Tournament, we finally saw the Notre Dame team that we were expected to see as it opened up strong against Wichita St., withstood a Shockers rally and then pulled away late. This obviously will be a bigger test for Notre Dame which is making its first Elite 8 appearance since 1979 and while destiny is said to be on the other side, it is more so on the Irish sidelines. We made a poor call on West Virginia Thursday as it got destroyed by Kentucky as the Wildcats came out with some additional motivation after West Virginia freshman guard Daxter Miles Jr. guaranteed a win for the Mountaineers and they paid the price as the Wildcats intended on running up the score which they certainly did. They doubled them up but they will have some more difficulties against the efficient Irish. Beyond having one of the most efficient offenses in the country, three-point shooters and underrated toughness, the Fighting Irish believe and confidence goes a long way in playing a team as tough as Kentucky. Going 4-1 against Duke and North Carolina this season has them well equipped for the big stage. The key for Notre Dame is to keep it close early which many terms have not been able to do against Kentucky but the Irish actually have the team to do that. Kentucky's biggest test of the season happens now. 10* (511) Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Wisconsin
+1½-109
  at  5DIMES
Won
$100
Play Type: Top Premium

The favorites were the story on Friday as they won and covered all four games but I think that changes Saturday with this first game. Arizona will have the advantage of playing closer to home with this game taking place in Anaheim as well as the revenge factor after losing to the Badgers in overtime in the Elite Eight almost a year ago to the day. Both teams have gotten better since that battle 364 days ago and the Badgers are getting a little more respect this time around as they are getting a bucket less but I think it is still too much. The inside battle will play a big role in this outcome and if the Wildcats cannot contain Frank Kaminsky like they failed to do last season, they will be sent packing and Sean Miller will be denied his first ever Final Four. The inside is what has helped the Wildcats a lot this season with a lot of that coming from fouls and free throw attempts as they lead the nation with 944 attempts. Wisconsin is disciplined enough to keep that in control as its 12.1 fouls per game is the lowest in the country while allowing just 7.6 ppg from the stripe. While the oddsmakers expect a close one, after a poor performance against a fast paced team on Thursday, expect Wisconsin to pull away against a team it matches up much better against. 10* (514) Wisconsin Badgers

Play Type: Premium

The Islanders have lost seven straight home games following the defeat yesterday against Anaheim and they are falling apart at the wrong time. Once looking great for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, New York has dropped into a tie for fourth place and it is in jeopardy of losing home ice for at least the first round of the playoffs. Even with the recent skid, the Islanders 23 home wins are tied for third most in the Eastern Conference and while this is not a must win game just yet, the fact they do not play again until Thursday, now is the time to break out. Detroit meanwhile is coming off a shutout against the Lightning yesterday to even its record at 2-2 during its recent homestand and the Red Wings now hit the road for the first time since March 20th. They are 19-18 away from home but have won just one of their last four on the highway and going back, they are 3-9 in their last 12 road games against teams with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. Detroit can leapfrog the Islanders with a victory but it has lost four straight games following a victory while the Islanders are 20-7 in their last 27 games in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation. 9* (6) New York Islanders

Play Type: Top Premium

Memphis is clinging to a half-game lead in the Southwest Division over Houston and those spots could flip by the time the night is done but I expect the Grizzlies to hold their own here in a pretty good spot. They are coming off back-to-back blowout losses at home against Cleveland and Golden St. and now they hit the road to face another hot team but they are definitely getting value in the line because of it. This is the second biggest line the Grizzlies have seen this season and the first one came at Washington when Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph sat out so this marks the biggest number of the season with a healthy and full lineup. Memphis has the third best road record in the NBA and the Grizzlies are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games against teams with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. San Antonio is rolling along with a 12-3 record over its last 15 games following a blowout against Dallas on Friday but that game was a revenge game from just three days prior and now the Spurs are favored by just a point less against a team that is five games better than the Mavericks. And as another example, they are favored by just one point less than they were favored by against the 32-40 Celtics in their most recent home game before that. 10* (715) Memphis Grizzlies

Play Type: Top Premium

While Saturday saw both No. 1 seeds advance into the Final Four, Sunday we will not see a top seed get it. The first game does not have a No. 1 seed and Duke, which is the last of three top seeds in the Elite 8, showed signs of definitely being beatable against Utah even though it was able to pull away and win comfortably. The Blue Devils were fortunate that the Utes were ice cold from long range as they went just 4-16 from behind the arc and on top of that, they outscored Utah 20-11 from the free throw line. Additionally, they were outrebounded 17-7 on the offensive glass and while all of this went their way Friday, it will not go their way tonight. Gonzaga has been a powerhouse in the WCC for years as it has steamrolled its opponents but has not ever made a Final Four. The Bulldogs came onto the scene in 1999 and made it to the Elite Eight as a No. 10 seed. Despite making the tournament every year since then including being seeded fourth or better five times prior to this year, they have never gotten past this round. This season, they have lost only twice which came by three points each against BYU and Arizona yet Gonzaga was not given a No. 1 seed and the Bulldogs are out to prove that was a mistake. The best shooting team in the country final gets to cut down the nets. 10* (721) Gonzaga Bulldogs

$100
Play Type: Top Premium

This is as old school as it gets where many predicted Villanova and Virginia to be playing here but instead we have two of the best coaches squaring off for a berth to the Final Four. Michigan St. got past the two top seeds on its end of the brackets as it took out No. 2 seed Virginia last weekend and No. 3 seed Oklahoma on Friday. And it did so in two different ways as the Spartans were able to grind it out against the Cavaliers and then go fast against the Sooners and both ways worked which makes it tough for Louisville, even with Rick Pitino, to try and gameplan. On the other side, Louisville snuck by UC Irvine, defeated an overrated Northern Iowa team and had the fortunes to get to meet No. 8 seed NC State in the Sweet 16. Don't get me wrong, this is a quality team with a quality coach and we won with the Cardinals Friday but the run ends today. The best way to beat Louisville is to play strong defense as the Cardinals are not good on offense and do not have one player that can take over and shoulder the scoring responsibility if need be. The Spartans have held opponents to a 39.4 percent shooting this season including 33.1 percent in three tournament games. Michigan St. is 24-4 when giving up less than 70 points and Louisville hasn't scored 70 or more points in consecutive games since January. 10* (719) Michigan St. Spartans
