SUNS at BUCKS (NBA):
People are down on the Suns, yet they have the best record in the Western Conference! So why are Stoudemire and Marion in trade talk? Tonight’s foe is Milwaukee, which has covered six of its last eight games. But Phoenix is rising. SUNS.
NETS AT KINGS (NBA):
If you can figure Jersey out, let me know. Kidd, Carter and Jefferson are fixtures, yet the Nets struggle to reach .500. Jersey is better on the road (9-8 ATS), but has dropped five straight. The Kings are in a groove (6-2 ATS last 8), Jersey has to figure Sacramento is beatable. Hey, they’re not Phoenix! NETS.
2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber... last wk: 2-1. ’08 record: 5-3
DEVILS at FLYERS (NHL):
The Atlantic Division-leading Devils face the red-hot Flyers, who are just one game behind Jersey. Philadelphis is seeking its sixth straight victory in a total turnaround from last season. Flyers are coming off a rout over tough Ottawa. FLYERS.
BLUE JACKETS at STARS (NHL):
Visiting Columbus has dropped two straight, while the host Stars have won three in a row. Dallas is looking to keep rolling and hold that slim advantage over Anaheim in the tough Pacific Conference. It’s also wise not to bet against Dallas goalie Marty Turco, one of the best in the league. STARS.
