2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last wk: 3-0. ’08: 74-38 (66.1%)
HOUSTON -8 at MARSHALL (NCAA)
This looks to be a good spot for the Thundering Herd to get the cover as a home dog. Cougars 0-8 ATS off back-to-back wins and facing an opponent with revenge. MARSHALL.
AVALANCHE at FLAMES (NHL)
Visiting Colorado has won five straight, while Calgary has posted three wins in a row. I favor the host Flames at what should be a fair price. FLAMES.
2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last wk: 1-2. ’08: 66-49 (57.4%)
CAVALIERS +7 at CELTICS (NBA)
You think LeBron James won’t get his boys pumped watching Boston’s NBA championship banner raised to the rafters? Look for Cleveland to send an early message. CAVALIERS.
BUCKS +6 at BULLS (NBA)
Look for top draft pick Derrick Rose to start strong for Chicago against a young Milwaukee team learning each other. BULLS...Bonus: Toronto (NHL).
