On Wednesday the NBA Western Conference play is on Dallas. Game 524 at 9;35 eastern. The Mavericks have revenge for a 73-70 road loss to the Lakers here and are 4-0 ats home off a home game where they scored 90 or less. They have covered 5 of 6 vs Pacific division teams and take on a Lakers team that struggles on the road at 4-12 ats and 1-4 ats as a road dog of 3.5 to 6. The Mavericks qualify in a solid system here tonight that plays on home favorites with a day of rest that scored 90 or less as a home favorite of 5 or more, vs an opponent that scored 100 or more as a home favorite of 4 or less and had1 or more prior rest before that game. These home teams are 13-2 ats. Look for Dallas to get the win and cover.
On Wednesday the Mountain West Play is on TCU. Game 569 at 8;00 eastern. Air Force fits a negative system based on their back to back dog wins over Wyoming and San Diego St. Air Force may very well be flat here in this one. They are just 4-25 vs winning teams in the 2nd half the last 3 years and 4-14 in February. As a home favorite of 3 or less they have lost both times and are 2-8 vs a conference opponent off a win. With road loss revenge they are also 4-20. TCU is 4-1 vs teams ranked 150 to 200 in the RPI Rankings and 39-15 vs teams who score 63 or less points. The Horned Frogs have covered 5 of their last 6 and are our selection here tonight. Take the points with TCU
