New Orleans tabbed as small favorite over Wizards


WASHINGTON WIZARDS (9-32)

at NEW ORLEANS HORNETS (10-33)


Tip-off: Thursday, 8:05 p.m. ET
Line: New Orleans -3, Total: 193½

One of the NBA’s worst home teams goes up against one of the league’s worst road teams when New Orleans hosts Washington on Thursday night.

This one has battle of attrition written all over it. The Hornets dropped a home game to Charlotte on Monday and the Lakers on Wednesday to fall to 4-18 SU and 6-16 ATS at home on the year. The Wizards haven’t won on the road in a month and are 3-16 SU and 7-12 ATS away from Washington. But it will also be a battle of styles, as the Hornets want a bogged-down, slow-tempo defensive battle while the Wizards will look to run, run, run. Who will win this matchup of struggling franchises? For the answer, connect to the NBA Weekday Pass for ATS picks covering all the marquee NBA games each day. NBA Pass was a perfect 3-0 ATS on Wednesday.

The Wizards have gone completely run-and-gun since the All-Star break with not completely disastrous results. They’re 2-6 SU and 4-4 ATS in the second half of the season, averaging 101.8 PPG while shooting 45.1% from the field, 37.0% from three and turning it over just 12.6 times per game. PG John Wall (17.3 PPG, 7.8 APG) has been excellent, averaging 19.4 PPG on 45.0% FG, 8.8 APG and only 2.6 TOPG since the break. Always streaky wings Jordan Crawford (13.1 PPG) and Nick Young (16.6 PPG) have flashed explosiveness on the offensive end, with Crawford averaging 16.1 PPG on 38.6% shooting and Young 14.1 PPG on 42.5% shooting. And PF Trevor Booker (8.5 PPG, 6.2 RPG) has emerged as their most reliable big man on both ends of the floor (though that’s not saying much), averaging 13.5 PPG, 9.5 RPG and posting an average plus/minus of just -1.1 despite the 2-6 SU record.

Of course, defensively they’ve been a disaster. The Wizards have allowed 108.6 PPG, 48.1% FG and 38.5% 3-pt FG since the All-Star break. The FoxSheets show a two-star trend favoring the Wizards:

Play Against - Home teams (NEW ORLEANS) - after failing to cover 3 of their last 4 against the spread, playing on back-to-back days. (127-82 over the last 5 seasons.) (60.8%, +36.8 units. Rating = 2*).

The Hornets were more than game against the Lakers on Wednesday night, leading by as many as 15 in the second half before having the game slip away in an overtime loss. PG Jarrett Jack (15.3 PPG, 6.1 APG) was phenomenal, going for 30 points on 13-for-21 shooting plus six assists. Jack is now averaging 20.8 PPG on 60.6% FG and 6.0 APG over his past five games.

C Chris Kaman (12.7 PPG, 8.3 RPG) added 21 points and 12 rebounds. The question is how much gas will their starters have left in the tank. Kaman played 45 minutes, Jack 39 and SF Trevor Ariza (11.6 PPG) was stretched to 44 minutes on Wednesday night. However, the Hornets are 6-5 ATS on the second night of back-to-backs this year. The FoxSheets provide another strong trend that supports picking the Hornets:

WASHINGTON is 12-33 ATS (26.7%, -24.3 Units) after a game where they covered the spread over the last 2 seasons. The average score was WASHINGTON 94.5, OPPONENT 104.6 - (Rating = 3*).

Wolves seek rare win in Utah Thursday

MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES (22-21)

at UTAH JAZZ (20-22)


Tip-off: Thursday, 9:05 p.m. ET
Line: Utah -3, Total: 201½

The Jazz return home and look to continue their dominance of the Timberwolves in Salt Lake when they host Minnesota Thursday night.

Utah has beaten the Wolves four straight times at home, SU and ATS, with an average margin of victory of 13.8 PPG. The Jazz have been typically strong at home all year, where they’re 15-6 SU and 13-7-1 ATS, but Minnesota is 13-6 ATS in road games. Can the Timberwolves snap their losing skid in Salt Lake City? For the answer, connect to the NBA Weekday Pass for ATS picks covering all the marquee NBA games each day. NBA Pass was a perfect 3-0 ATS on Wednesday.

The Timberwolves are in the beginning stages of a lengthy road trip that started with a shootout, 127-124 win at Phoenix on Monday. They haven’t suffered too badly since losing PG Ricky Rubio (10.6 PPG, 8.2 APG) to a season-ending knee injury.

Their dominating low-post tandem has certainly helped fill Rubio’s void. Since returning from a minor back injury, PF Kevin Love (25.7 PPG, 13.6 RPG) has averaged 30.5 PPG and 11.5 RPG in two games since the Rubio injury. Since missing two games with a foot injury earlier this month, C Nikola Pekovic (13.3 PPG, 7.4 RPG) has averaged 23.3 PPG on 63.6% shooting and 10.7 RPG (including 5.7 offensive RPG) in his past three games. Erratic SG Wayne Ellington (5.3 PPG) has emerged, averaging 13.5 PPG and hitting 64.7% FG including 62.5% of his threes. And PG Luke Ridnour (11.5 PPG) has averaged 12.0 PPG and 9.5 APG while running the point full-time since the Rubio injury. The FoxSheets show a two-star trend favoring the Wolves:

Play Against - Home teams (UTAH) - after a road game where both teams score 100 or more points, extremely tired team - playing 9 or more games in 14 days. (41-16 since 1996.) (71.9%, +23.4 units. Rating = 2*).

It’s not surprising that the Jazz fell in Phoenix on Wednesday, dropping to 5-16 SU and 7-14 ATS away from home on the season. They average just 94.7 PPG and shoot 29.1% from three on the road, as opposed to 99.8 PPG and 32.5% 3-pt FG at home.

Jefferson (19.2 PPG, 9.3 RPG) continues to play admirably through his grief. He had 18 points and seven rebounds in 29 minutes in Phoenix, and is now averaging 21.0 PPG on 51.5% FG and 8.9 RPG in March. PF Paul Millsap (15.9 PPG, 8.9 RPG) has added 16.5 PPG on 51.0% FG and 8.0 RPG this month.

While their veteran perimeter players continue with their uneven performance, SF Gordon Hayward (9.8 PPG) has looked very good off the bench of late, averaging 11.3 PPG on 54.2% FG in March. PF Derrick Favors (8.2 PPG, 5.1 RPG) came off the bench with 14 points on 6-for-8 shooting in 21 minutes in the Suns loss, and could have a big role in combating Minnesota’s big men. The FoxSheets provide this strong trend backing the Jazz:

Play Against - Underdogs (MINNESOTA) - playing with 2 days rest, in March games. (82-42 over the last 5 seasons.) (66.1%, +35.8 units. Rating = 2*).

Pick 'n' roll: Thursday's best NBA bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oklahoma City Thunder at Denver Nuggets (1, 211)

The Denver Nuggets have dropped four of their last five against the spread, but at least the club’s supporters are seeing a bit of progress.

Danilo Gallinari finally looked more like himself after recovering from his foot injury in a 118-117 overtime win against Atlanta on Tuesday.

After failing to crack 10 points in his first three game back in the lineup, he scored 19 points and hit a key trey near the end of regulation.

"I think it's trying to get him into easy opportunities where you get more layups and easy shots, rather than trying to play one-on-one and get into the teeth of the defense," coach George Karl about Gallinari. "It's trying to get more actions by playing before the defense gets set, running the court, maybe getting some offensive boards and get confidence from easy opportunities."

With Oklahoma City sputtering, we like the Nuggets in this spot.

Pick: Nuggets


Washington Wizards at New Orleans Hornets (-3, 193)

If the Washington Wizards don’t make any moves ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline, it won’t be for lack of effort.

Rumors continue to fly around that Andray Blatche – among others – may have already played their last games with Washington when the Wizards dropped a 107-98 decision to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.

Still, coach Randy Whittman is happy with the progress his group is making.

“We came here and I thought we fought them tooth and nail,” Wittman told reporters. “Against good teams like this, your margin for error of us, being what we are as a young team, is small. We’ve just got to keep fighting like that, and keep improving. Making steps in the improvement defensively we need to make.”

Tough to make a call on this one before the deadline, but each of the last three meetings between these teams have played under.

Pick: Under

Pittsburgh Penguins at New York Rangers (N/A)

Sidney Crosby is finally ready to suit up for the Pittsburgh Penguins, giving a club a huge boost as it tries to catch the New York Rangers at the top of the Eastern Conference.

While it’s great news for Penguins supporters, it’s not like they were headed to the poor house without No. 87. The Penguins have won nine straight games, the most recent of which was an impressive 5-2 win over the Boston Bruins.

Crosby went off for four points in his first game of the year back in November, but only played eight games before being sidelined with more concussion/neck problems.

"Actually, you know what, I probably feel a little bit better (than in November), just knowing what to expect," Crosby told reporters. "I think it's just easier going through it this time ... that first game was pretty overwhelming, and it was a lot of fun, but that being said I'm going to take it a little more in stride this time, and make sure I'm getting better every game, but also pace myself a little bit, especially with this schedule.”

Easing Crosby into the mix is a lot easier said than done. He'll show up on this big stage.

Pick: Penguins


St. Louis Blues at Carolina Hurricanes (+135, 5)

The Blues’ five-game winning streak came to an abrupt stop in a shootout loss to Chicago Tuesday. St. Louis is a resilient team and has lost back-to-back games only twice since the New Year. It makes the third stop of a seven-game road trip in Carolina.

The Hurricanes are back home after a road run of their own, going 2-2-1 in that span. Carolina and St. Louis have split their last 10 meetings, going back to 2002.

The Blues blew a 3-1 lead against the Blackhawks, marking the first time this season they’ve failed to win when scoring three or more goals (36-0-1). St. Louis also watched its streak of 51 penalties killed end after taking some undisciplined whistles in the final two periods.

They won’t be that sloppy two games in a row.

Pick: Under
