Rose Should Return As Bulls Meet Knicks

Nothing in sports is ever guaranteed, but all signs point to superstar point guard Derrick Rose making his return to the court this Sunday. Last year’s MVP has been out for the last 12 games and is likely suit up for the Chicago Bulls' 1:00 p.m. (ET) matchup on ABC with the New York Knicks at MSG.

Rose’s last action just so happened to be against the Knicks back on March 12 in a game where he led all scorers with 32 points, though it took him 29 shots to get there. Of course, he is far and away Chicago’s best player and will always get his attempts.

Chicago (43-13 straight up, 32-23-1 against the spread) did an outstanding job without their star, going 8-4 SU in his absence, though they were only 6-5-1 ATS.

Meanwhile for New York (28-27 SU and ATS), that game on March 12 was Mike D’Antoni’s last as head coach. Interim coach Mike Woodson has seemingly had a positive effect on the squad despite injuries to Amar’e Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin going 10-3 SU and ATS.

Each meeting between these two resulted in a Bulls win but a cover for the Knicks as an underdog. Both games went ‘over’ the total as well. Keep in mind that this is the first of a home-and-home as they will square off again on Tuesday night at Chicago's United Center.

The Knicks are in third place in the Atlantic Division and the two clubs on top will face off on Sunday as well. At 6:00 p.m. (ET) on NBA TV, the Boston Celtics (30-24 SU, 26-26-2 ATS) will host the Philadelphia 76ers (29-25 SU, 27-26-1 ATS).

Don’t look now, but those old Celtics are starting to make some noise. While they have lost two in a row SU, that was against elite competition in Chicago and the San Antonio Spurs in games they had a chance to win. Before those outings, Boston massacred the Miami Heat 91-72 in an embarrassing fashion that is not as close as the score indicates.

For most of the season, Philly led this division and they badly need a win here to help them climb back on top. The Sixers may not mind, though, considering they beat the Celtics by a combined 45 points in their two meetings this season as a 6-point and 7½-point favorite. However, both of those were at home.

In this shortened season, quirky scheduling plays a part and the aforementioned Spurs (39-14 SU, 33-18-2 ATS) and Utah Jazz (29-27 SU, 28-28 ATS) will be in a unique situation as they will play a home-and-home in back-to-back games. Sunday’s contest will be in San Antonio; Monday’s will be in Utah.

As of Saturday morning, the Spurs have actually overtaken the Oklahoma City Thunder as the No. 1 team in the Western Conference having won 10 in a row SU.

The Spurs won and covered both meetings with the Jazz this year, the first as a 14½-point favorite. At Monday’s end, San Antonio could sweep this season series and win their 12th in a row.

Utah figures to have a better shot at a win on Monday as they are much better at home than on the road both SU and ATS. However, the Spurs are a solid 10-5 SU with zero days rest (7-6-2 ATS). The Jazz are 9-11 SU and 10-10 ATS in those situations.

Finally, sticking with Monday’s 10-game slate, there will be a possible Western Conference playoff preview when the Los Angeles Clippers (33-22 SU, 28-27 ATS) hit the road and battle the Memphis Grizzlies (31-23 SU, 25-29 ATS). These teams are the four and five seeds in the conference, respectively.

While LeBron James and Kevin Durant appear to be in a two-way race for MVP, Chris Paul has turned the Clips into a real force as their leader. He scores 19.3 ppg, dishes nine assists per contest, is shooting 48 percent from the field, steals 2.4 balls per game and averages just two turnovers.

In both meetings against the Grizz, the Clippers won and covered as a favorite and each went just ‘under’ the total. This time won’t be in “Lob City,” however.

Memphis has been going through a little adjustment period gaining F Zach Randolph back from injury, but they may be gearing up now going 6-2 SU (5-3 ATS) in their last eight. That includes Friday’s decisive 97-82 victory against the Heat in Miami.

Marlins Open Week 2 At Philadelphia Phillies

An abbreviated first week to the MLB season comes to a close on Sunday before heading into a full week of action Monday. We'll take a look at a few of those games right after a quick recap of some of the games and trends that have gotten us to this point.

A couple of Friday's games reminded us of Yogi Berra's old quote, "It's déjà vu all over again." Just as they did in the final regular season game last September, Tampa Bay rallied to beat the New York Yankees in this year's season opener for both clubs. The Rays (+110) scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the ninth off New York closer Mariano Rivera for the 7-6 victory.

St. Louis also defeated its division rivals from Milwaukee in a rematch of last October's NLCS. The Cardinals continued their domination of Yovani Gallardo by pounding four home runs off the Brewers right-hander en route to an 11-5 triumph as +110 'dogs.

Those two games led the way for what proved to be a good day for underdog and 'over' bettors. Chalk had covered nine of the first 10 games before Friday while the 'under' was 8-2 in the very early going. 'Over' bettors came out on top in five of Friday's contests, with the Dodgers' 6-0 win in San Diego 'pushing' the total. Favorites won four of the nine games, underdogs covered four of the others, with the San Francisco-Arizona closing as a -105 pick 'em.

ChiSox & Rangers Finish Off Sunday Slate

The White Sox and Rangers kicked off their 3-game series on Friday in Arlington where Texas posted a 3-2 win. The Rangers were solid -190 favorites behind Colby Lewis who struck out nine in his six innings of work before turning it over to his bullpen. Ian Kinsler provided the bulk of Texas' offense with a double and homer while scoring twice.

Chicago was seeking its first win for new manager Robin Ventura as decided underdogs once again on Saturday. The Rangers were -180 behind young lefty Derek Holland who was scheduled to face Jake Peavy of the White Sox.

Sunday's series finale will be broadcast by ESPN in prime-time (8:00 p.m. ET). The scheduled starting pitchers are Gavin Floyd for the ChiSox and Matt Harrison for the Rangers.

The Rangers split Harrison's two starts against Chicago a year ago, though the left-hander didn't figure into either decision. Harrison limited the 46 batters he faced to a .189 batting average in the outings, but struggled a bit with his control, walking seven in 11-1/3 innings. He enjoyed a fine spring with four starts totaling 16 frames and a 1.69 ERA with a 14:2 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Floyd's spring is one he'll want to put behind him; the right-hander made four appearances with a 6.64 ERA in 20+ innings, walking nine and serving up three long balls. He made two strong starts vs. Texas a year ago, allowing just six hits and one earned run in 14 innings. His defense and offense let him down in the May outing at Texas, a 2-1 loss for Chicago.

Marlins, Phils Highlight Monday Schedule

Week 2 of the campaign begins with a dozen games on Monday, two of those series openers matching up division rivals expected to contend for the postseason.

The Marlins are expected to give the Phillies a run for their money in the NL East, and would love to get things going on a positive note when the two clash in Philadelphia for a matinee contest (1:05 p.m. ET). The Phils are heavy favorites (-185) to take home their sixth consecutive division flag, with the Fish priced in the 3/1 to 4/1 range depending when and where bettors picked up their futures. Philadelphia is scheduled to send left-hander Cole Hamels to the mound on Monday while Miami counters with Anibal Sanchez.

It's a series that Philly has dominated the past two seasons, winning 25 of the 36 collisions. Twelve of the last 18 games played in the City of Brotherly Love have gone to the Phillies.

Cincinnati remains at home to open the second week with a 3-game set against the St. Louis Cardinals. Homer Bailey gets the call for the Reds in the 7:10 p.m. (ET) start with the Cards sending Jake Westbrook to the mound.

The Reds began the season as -150 favorites to capture the NL Central title while St. Louis and Milwaukee were each around +250. Cincinnati won nine of the 15 meetings last season, and five of the six played at Great American Ball Park (4-2 'over').

Sunday Night Tips

April 8, 2012


The Sunday night NBA card involves six contests, including several key Eastern Conference matchups. The Heat looks to get on track after Friday's ugly loss to Memphis as Miami heads to Detroit, while the 76ers and Celtics meet up in Boston. We'll start in New Jersey as the Nets try to keep up their ATS hot streak against a struggling Cleveland squad.

Cavaliers at Nets - 6:05 PM EST

This game isn't going to get many toes tingling, but New Jersey has cashed in five of the past six games. The Nets cruised past a tired and injury-riddled Wizards' club on Friday, 110-98 as eight-point favorites in the first contest back from a four-game West Coast swing. Cleveland invades New Jersey without its top scorer in Kyrie Irving, as the point guard is sitting out with a shoulder injury. The Cavs also without swingman Anthony Parker (sternum) and Daniel Gibson (ankle), but Cleveland upset Toronto on Friday, 84-80 as seven-point road underdogs. The Nets go for the season split with the Cavs after Cleveland held off New Jersey, 105-100 on March 19.

76ers at Celtics - 6:05 PM EST

Philadelphia enters Sunday's action two games behind Boston in the Atlantic Division, as the Sixers go for their third win in three tries against the Celtics this season. Boston returns home following Saturday's victory at Indiana, as the C's own a 5-0 SU and 3-2 ATS record at TD Garden with no rest. The Sixers lost their third straight game to the struggling Magic last night, 88-82 as six-point favorites. Philadelphia has put together a 4-9 ATS mark the previous 13 games, while cashing just two of its last nine contests in the 'dog role. In each of the first two meetings at the Wells Fargo Center, the Sixers picked up a pair of double-digit victories, as the Celtics played without rest in each of those two losses.

Pistons at Heat - 6:05 PM EST

Miami will look to build a new home winning streak after having its 17-game hot streak halted by Memphis on Friday. The Heat plays the fourth of a five-game homestand against the Pistons, as Detroit has quietly won five of its past seven contests. The first two matchups this season were claimed by the Heat at the Palace of Auburn Hills, including an 88-73 blowout as nine-point 'chalk' on March 23. Detroit cashed in the first of a four-game road swing at Atlanta as nine-point underdogs in a 101-96 loss on Friday. Erik Spoelstra's team is 11-3 to the 'under' the last 14 games at the American Airlines Arena, while Detroit is riding a four-game 'over' streak overall.

Raptors at Thunder - 7:05 PM EST

Oklahoma City attempts to snap a season-high three-game losing streak as the Thunder returns home to host the Raptors. Toronto stubbed its toe in Friday's home defeat to the undermanned Cavaliers, halting a three-game winning streak. The Thunder's offense has scored less than 100 points in each of the last four contests, the longest such stretch of the season. Oklahoma City owns a 4-7 ATS record this season as a double-digit favorite, but is a strong 10-4 ATS off a straight-up defeat. The Raptors look to improve on a 7-2 ATS record when receiving at least 10 points, including covers in overtime games at Chicago and Memphis the last three weeks.

Jazz at Spurs - 7:05 PM EST

San Antonio is the hottest team in basketball by winning each of its last 10 games, while taking 13 of its past 14 contests. The Spurs are 8-1-1 ATS in this stretch, as the Jazz invades the AT&T Center on Sunday. Since Utah's six-game winning streak was snapped in a four-overtime loss at Atlanta, Tyrone Corbin's squad is 3-5 SU and 2-6 ATS the past eight contests. In two prior meetings this season, the Spurs have beaten the Jazz, including a four-point victory in Salt Lake City on February 20. The Spurs have dominated as large favorites this season by compiling an 8-1 ATS mark as nine-point 'chalk' or more.

Rockets at Kings - 9:05 PM EST

Houston is rolling through its four-game road trip by already picking up underdog victories over the Bulls and Lakers. The swing continues in Sacramento against an unrested Kings' team that played last night in Los Angeles. The Kings have dropped seven of the past nine contests since a three-game winning streak, while leading scorer Marcus Thornton has missed each of the last three games with a bruised thigh. The Rockets have cashed in six of the previous nine contests, as Houston looks to maintain the sixth seed in the Western Conference with a win

Rose hopes to return Sunday at New York

CHICAGO BULLS (43-13)

at NEW YORK KNICKS (28-27)


Tip-off: Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET
Line: Chicago -2, Total: 184½

The Bulls expect to finally have Derrick Rose back in the lineup when they visit New York on Sunday afternoon.

The reigning MVP Rose will certainly be an asset to his team, but he could be a bit rusty after not playing since March 12, missing 12 straight games with a groin injury. The Knicks have been on quite a run recently, going 10-3 (SU and ATS) in 13 games since Mike Woodson replaced Mike D’Antoni as head coach. But they also have major injuries to deal with, as PG Jeremy Lin (knee) is out for the season and PF Amar’e Stoudemire is out with a back injury. Also, C Tyson Chandler will be at less than 100 percent due to a sore groin and left wrist injury. Which team will win on Easter Sunday? For the answer, connect to the NBA Weekend Pass for ATS picks covering all the marquee NBA games each day. The NBA Pass is an outstanding 19-9 ATS (68%) since March 28.

Chicago has split its past six contests (SU and ATS), including home losses to Denver and Houston. The offense has really struggled over this span, scoring just 89.3 PPG on 43% FG. However, the defense has been stellar since allowing the Nuggets to score 108 points on March 26. In five games since, Bulls opponents have given up just 85.0 PPG on 43% FG.

Chicago is 15-7 without Rose this season, including 8-4 during the most recent span. But Rose has averaged 27.9 PPG in the past seven meetings in this series, so he will certainly be needed against the surging Knicks. Although the Bulls shot just 41% FG in Thursday’s 93-86 win over Boston, the team did other things well. They won the rebounding battle by eight, made 22-of-26 free throws and blocked eight Celtics shots. SF Luol Deng scored 26 points with six rebounds and four steals on Thursday, but the other two frontcourt starters also had strong afternoons. C Joakim Noah scored 17 points (5-6 FG, 7-7 FT) with nine boards and three blocks, while PF Carlos Boozer tallied a double-double with 12 points and 14 boards. Rose’s replacement, C.J. Watson had 15 points and eight assists, but also had six turnovers. He made just 5-of-16 shots, dropping his FG Pct. to a dreadful 25% (12-of-48 FG) over the past five contests. During this stretch, Watson has just 21 assists and 16 turnovers. This four-star FoxSheets trend expects the Bulls to win and cover:

CHICAGO is 15-2 ATS (88.2%, +12.8 Units) in a road game where the total is between 180 and 189.5 points this season. The average score was CHICAGO 100.6, OPPONENT 83.8 - (Rating = 4*).

New York is 7-3 ATS in its past 10 games as an underdog of four points or less, including a perfect 3-0 ATS as a home 'dog. The Knicks have defended very well under Woodson’s guidance, allowing just 87.8 PPG on 42% FG and 28.5% 3-pt FG. In 42 games with D’Antoni as the head coach, New York surrendered 96.5 PPG on 45% FG and 37% 3-pt FG. This includes allowing Chicago to score 104.5 PPG on 47% FG in two meetings this season.

Thursday’s 96-80 win in Orlando might have been the Knicks’ most impressive defensive effort this season. The Magic scored just 36 second-half points and star C Dwight Howard was held to eight points. Offensively, SF Carmelo Anthony continues to dominate. In the past six games, he’s averaged 27.7 PPG on 48% FG, which is considerably better than his previous seven contests when he scored only 14.0 PPG on 39% FG. New York was pretty balanced on offense against Orlando as six other players scored at least nine points. Both J.R. Smith and Toney Douglas came off the bench to score 15 points apiece, making 13-of-24 shots (54%) and 4-of-6 threes. Chandler, who is expected to start despite his nagging injuries, had 12 points and 12 rebounds against the Magic. In his past five games, he’s averaging a double-double (10.2 PPG, 11.2 RPG) and making a whopping 18-of-26 shots (69.2%). This strong FoxSheets trend backs the Knicks:

NEW YORK is 42-27 ATS (60.9%, +12.3 Units) after 1 or more consecutive wins over the last 2 seasons. The average score was NEW YORK 103.7, OPPONENT 101.3 - (Rating = 1*).

White Sox-Rangers play rubber match Sunday

CHICAGO WHITE SOX (1-1)

at TEXAS RANGERS (1-1)


First pitch: Sunday, 8:05 p.m. EDT
Line: Texas -180, Chicago +170, Total: 9

After splitting two straight low-scoring games, the White Sox and Rangers complete their three-game series on Sunday night in a matchup expected to showcase more offense with an Over/Under set at 9.

Colby Lewis pitched Texas to a 3-2 win on Friday, but Jake Peavy responded with a quality outing in Chicago’s 4-3 win on Saturday. The series finale features White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd versus Rangers lefty Matt Harrison, which is a more even matchup than the lines would indicate. Floyd was much better against Texas last year (14 IP, 1 ER) than Harrison was in facing the Chicago bats (11.1 IP, 6 ER). Despite the White Sox’s sub-.500 record last year, they were 43-38 (+9.5 units) on the road and 24-22 versus left-handed starters. With such a lopsided money line, take a chance on CHICAGO to win this series.

This strong FoxSheets trend also backs the White Sox:

CHICAGO WHITE SOX are 43-34 (55.8%, +13.8 Units) against the money line in road games in games played on a grass field over the last 2 seasons. The average score was CHICAGO WHITE SOX 4.2, OPPONENT 4.2 - (Rating = 1*).

Floyd was 12-13 with a 4.37 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 2011, but really shut down the Rangers in two meetings, allowing just eight base-runners in 14 innings of work. One of those outings was in Arlington, where Floyd allowed just one earned run on three hits in seven innings, fanning five and walking one. He also pitched well at Texas in 2010, with a similar line of 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K. Floyd has not fared too well in April in his career (11-9, 5.71 ERA, 1.51 WHIP), but last year he was 3-1 with a 3.60 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in the season’s first month. Rangers OF Josh Hamilton has gotten the best of Floyd in their lifetime matchups (6-for-10, two doubles, 4 RBI), but the five other Texas hitters with 10+ at-bats against Floyd are a combined 17-for-73 (.233 BA) with 12 strikeouts and just six walks.

Harrison had easily his best season in 2011, going 14-9 with a 3.39 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. He seemed to tire down the stretch though, and was lit up in five postseason games, posting a 5.40 ERA and 1.58 WHIP. But Harrison was the team’s best bet on the year, as the Rangers were 22-12 (+8.55 Units) when he started. However, he was much better on the road (3.19 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) than at home last year (4.02 ERA, 1.38 WHIP). Only two White Sox batters have 10+ AB against Harrison in his brief career. 1B Paul Konerko is a dreadful 1-for-11 with 2 K and OF Brent Lillibridge is 3-for-10 with four strikeouts.
