2 for Tuesday by Richard Saber

1) San Antonio at Philadelphia (NBA Wednesday)

The Spurs have been a big ATS loser on the road this year so far. The young Sixers are rested and happy to be back on their home court. Expect a big crowd to root the 76ers on. PHILLY

2) Connecticut at Tulsa (college bkb Wednesday)

UConn is off to a tough start covering games and could be road weary having played recently at Arizona and New Orleans. This matchup should set up nicely for the Hurricane. TULSA

Richard Saber: Last week: 2-0; 2017 final record: 56-44-4

2 for Tuesday by Mark Mayer

1) Chicago at NY Rangers (NHL Wednesday)

The Blackhawks are ending their long 6-game road trip at Madison Square Garden where the Rangers have been tough to beat. Hawks just 1-4 on the trip and King Henrik is hot. NYR

2) Ottawa NL at Detroit (NHL Wednesday)

The disappointing Senators continue to struggle as they journey into Detroit. The Red Wings are on a 2-game winning streak and are riding their talented young players. DETROIT                Mark Mayer: Last week: 2-0; 2017 final record: 51-50-1
