2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last week: 1-2, 2009: 3-5 (37.5%)

DEVILS at SENATORS (NHL)

Advantage Senators, who made the best of a terrible first half of the season by winning 3 of 4 prior to the All-Star break. There’s also revenge, having lost twice to Jersey. SENATORS.

SABRES at OILERS (NHL)

Edmonton won its last 3 games and 5-of-6 heading into the All-Star Game at Montreal. Tough spot for Buffalo, having played at Florida and at Tampa Bay before the break and now face a 4-game trek out West beginning in Edmonton. OILERS.

2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last week: 1-2, 2009:

BOSTON COLLEGE at MARYLAND (ACC)

The Terps come off an 85-44 humiliation at Duke. Coach Gary Williams is intense when Maryland wins by 41! BC has been playing well, but Williams will have the Terps ready to stomp someone. MD.

PACERS at MAGIC (NBA)

The linesmakers may be finally catching up with Orlando after that great West Coast trip. Orlando went into Miami favored and lost. The Magic should be at least 7 against a Pacers bunch that scores and covers consistently as a dog. PACERS.
