NBA – (701) GOLDEN STATE at (702) TORONTO 7:05 ET CSBA, TSN
The Warriors have lost the first two games of their north tier road trip and will try their luck north of the border. Golden State has shot 34.6 and 41.9 (compared to season average of 45.4%) percent in these frigid areas and will attempt to heat up. NBA basketball bettors are not so sure this will occur, dropping the total from 203 to 201.5. Toronto might hold the key to what is the correct side to play on this total since they are 13-3 OVER at home against teams allowing 99 or more points. The total may be dipping, but the Warriors are 11-2 OVER in January road affairs since last season. S-W Take – Play Over
11th Hour Sports is the units leader in the NBA this season.
NBA – (703) SACRAMENTO at (704) WASHINGTON 7:05 ET CSCA, CSMA
As noted in our last edition of Line Moves, the return of point guard John Wall was been immense for Washington. The Wizards have covered 10 straight (nine with Wall) and are 6-3 since he came back. During this period, Washington’s defense has also improved and they are 6-3 UNDER. For this matchup, the Sacramento defense figures to play in the outcome and they have surrendered 111.5 PPG in losing four in a row. With Wall running the show, those betting on basketball have pushed the total hard to 202.5, which is up four points from its release. Though the Kings are 22-9 OVER in road games after allowing 105 points or more in four straight, the Wizards are 13-2 UNDER after covering the spread in three or more consecutive tries. S-W Take – Play Under

CBB – (719) PITTSBURGH at (720) LOUISVILLE 7:00 ET ESPN
The fall has been precipitous and Louisville is staring at possibly their longest losing streak since 2004, should they plummet to Pittsburgh tonight for their fourth consecutive setback. The Cardinals offense has gone cold, shooting under 41 percent for three contests in a row. Louisville doesn’t figure to be hotter than a Papa John’s pizza out of oven, with the Panthers holding teams to 54.5 PPG on 39.3 percent accuracy. Nonetheless, hoops bettors have juiced the total from 122 to 124.5 quite possibly because Pitt is 8-2 OVER on the year, including 6-1 in Big East battles. You still have to consider the ‘Ville’s track record which has them at 14-4 UNDER after one or more defeats. S-W Take – Lean with the Over
NHL – (53) DALLAS at (54) COLUMBUS 7:05 ET FSSW, FSOH
The word on the street is Jamomir Jagr and Derek Roy will be back after missing a game due to injury and this has helped Dallas to go from -104 to -120 favorites on the money line. The Stars are 15-7 at Columbus in the past 22 meetings and is 11-3 versus mediocre offenses like the Blue Jackets averaging 2.4 or less goals a contest. After winning their season opener, Columbus has lost four straight, including a tough 3-2 heartbreaker to Chicago the last time out and they are a feckless 0-14 off a loss by one goal to a division rival the last three seasons. S-W Take – Dallas wins
