2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last wk: 2-0. ’08: 81-42 (65.9%)

DRAKE +2 at IOWA ST (college basketball)

I haven’t made a bet on college hoops since they put in the 3-point shot. Until now. Iowa State in full-revenge mode after losing 79-44 to Drake last year. IOWA STATE.

DRAKE at IOWA ST (no total)

Here’s Part II. Even though Drake is off to a 6-2 start, Iowa State is a different team this season so far. The Cyclones are 6-1 and off a 13-point win over Oregon State. We’re hoping for a favorable total with emotions running high. OVER.

2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last wk: 0-2. ’08: 72-54 (57.1%)

RAPTORS +11 at CAVALIERS (NBA)

The Cavaliers are 16-1 in their last 17 and have covered eight in a row. We’re not about to stand in LeBron’s way. Especially when Toronto has not covered a line in seven straight. CAVALIERS.

TEXAS -2 vs VILLANOVA (college basketball)

A beauty of a matchup at Madison Square Garden. The Longhorns are 6-1 and just off a big home win over UCLA. Villanova is 7-0 with its closest margin 13 points against a good Rhode Island team. Nova knows the Garden rims. VILLANOVA.
