Savannah State at Wisconsin Badgers (-27, 111)

Wisconsin looks to head into final exams on a positive note when it hosts Savannah State. The No. 15 Badgers are coming off a tougher-than-expected victory at Milwaukee on Tuesday, rallying late after blowing a 17-point lead in the second half.

The Badgers rank at or near the top of Division I in most defensive categories, leading the nation in points allowed (45.7) and holding opponents to 34 percent shooting. A balanced lineup features four players scoring in double figures, led by junior center Jared Berggren (12.3). Senior All-American point guard Jordan Taylor averages 11.8 points and 5.5 assists for Wisconsin, which commits the fewest turnovers (8.4) of any team in the country.

However, the Badgers had a tough time with UW-Milwaukee the last time they took the court. Wisconsin slipped away with a 60-54 road victory, but couldn't cover the number as a 10.5-point favorite.

The Badgers should be able to get back on track in front of their home fans, but there's no way we're biting on this fat line.

Pick: Under


Oral Roberts Golden Eagles at Gonzaga Bulldogs (-11.5, 139.5)

This isn't exactly the way the Bulldogs drew it up.

Gonzaga has dropped two straight, losing at Illinois before dropping a 74-67 decision at home to Michigan State. Seven-foot center Rob Sacre continues to shoulder a big load and dropped 16 points while adding seven rebounds in the losing effort. He's putting up 16.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game on the year.

"Shake off the dust and get ready, and get all that losing out of our system," Sacre told reporters ahead of Thursday's game with Oral Roberts. "[We need to] really focus on getting better and go after these guys. We're really hungry for these guys."

They had better be, because the Golden Eagles are coming off a big win. Damon Bell-Holter hit a heave at the buzzer to give Oral Roberts a 58-55 victory over Arkansas-Little Rock.

This is a big one for the 'Zags and they'll show up.

Pick: Bulldogs

Ice picks: Thursday’s best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Washington Capitals at Winnipeg Jets (+105, 5.5)

We mentioned a little while ago that the Jets were turning into a heck of a home team in front of their crazed fans at the MTS Centre.

They improved their home record to 10-4 on the year with an impressive 2-1 win over the league-leading Minnesota Wild. Bryan Little scored his 11th goal of the season with about five minutes left in the third to put the game away for good.

"It proves to teams that we're up there and we can play with the best teams in the league, especially in our arena," Bryan Little told reporters. "We wanted to make this a tough arena to come play in. To beat those teams in our building is huge for our confidence."

Winnipeg closed around -110 for their win over Minnesota, but if you get at this line early, you’ll see an even better price with the overvalued Capitals coming to town.

The Jets will give Ovechkin and company all they can handle.

Pick: Jets


New York Rangers at St. Louis Blues (-135, 5)

You don’t see the Rangers pegged as underdogs very often these days (just four times over the last 18 games, to be exact) and for good reason.

They’ve bought into a strong defensive system and Brad Richards has been everything this team has needed and more after a bit of a slow start.

"I have to admit that even though I wanted to come here, it was a hell of a transition, especially since I'm not the kind of person who is the best at adapting to change," Richards told reporters about his move from Dallas. "Mentally, it took its toll on me, and I wasn't as sharp as I wanted to be or needed to be, but thankfully I got great support from my teammates and we were winning. I'm starting to feel it come now. I feel comfortable being here and living here. The best is ahead of me."

That’s an exciting prospect for Rangers supporters considering he’s already tied for the team lead with 25 points. New York struggled to get much going in a 1-0 home loss to Dallas on Tuesday, but this team bounces back well.

Good value on the visitors here and the under looks tempting too.

Pick: Rangers

Gonzaga hosts Oral Roberts Thursday

ORAL ROBERTS GOLDEN EAGLES (7-3)

at GONZAGA BULLDOGS (5-2)


Tip-off: Thursday, 9:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Gonzaga -12, Total: 139.5

Two of the country’s premiere mid-major programs go head-to-head when Gonzaga hosts Oral Roberts Thursday night.

It’s been a rough start to the year for Oral Roberts, who is in the midst of a tough four-game road trip. They lost by 14 at Oklahoma, and needed a half-court prayer at the buzzer to pull out a win at Arkansas-Little Rock despite being 8.5-point road favorites. The Golden Eagles are now 1-6 ATS on the year. Gonzaga is coming off a couple disappointing games of its own, losing SU and ATS at Illinois and at home versus Michigan State, snapping its seven-game SU home winning streak. But the Zags have played a tougher schedule so far; four of their seven games have been against schools from the six “power conferences” (going 2-2 SU). And in 15 home games against non-conference opponents the past two seasons, the Zags have won 10 of them by double-digits. GONZAGA is the pick for Thursday.

The FoxSheets have a four-star trend based on ORU head coach Scott Sutton that’s working against the Golden Eagles:

Sutton is 3-17 ATS (15.0%, -15.7 Units) after having won 3 of their last 4 games as the coach of ORAL ROBERTS. The average score was ORAL ROBERTS 73.5, OPPONENT 69.9 - (Rating = 4*).

Gonzaga has a definite advantage inside, where 7-foot, 260-pound C Robert Sacre (16.4 PPG, 7.1 RPG) and 6-foot-7, 240-pound F Elias Harris (12.0 PPG, 8.1 RPG) have developed into one of the nation’s best frontcourt tandems. The Golden Eagles will likely struggle against the physicality of Sacre, who is averaging an amazing 9.6 free throw attempts per game, tops in the nation, over 29.1 minutes per game. He’s also shooting 79% from the line. Throw in the solid freshman backcourt tandem of sharp-shooting Kevin Pangos (13.3 PPG, 46% from three) and defensive specialist Gary Bell, and the Bulldogs have as much talent as any mid-major in the country.

Oral Roberts’ athletic but slender frontcourt has carried the team so far. Senior SF Dominique Morrison (16.2 PPG) is the No. 1 option on offense for a third straight season, but he’s struggled to find his shooting range (22% from three this season, 37% in his first three years). Sophomore PF Steven Roundtree (11.2 PPG, 6.8 RPG) had some fine moments early in the season, scoring double-digits in his first five games, but since then he’s scored a total of 33 points over his past five. At 6-foot-8 but just 190 pounds, he’ll have his hands full against Gonzaga’s size. Senior SF Michael Craion (11.8 PPG, 7.5 RPG) has bounced back nicely from the broken foot that cost him all of 2010-11.
