God damn it's been a while.  Let's see if I can still do this thang.

Nuggets -9 (-105) to win 25 units

Ok here we'll have two fatigued teams going at it with both the Kings and Nuggets playing their 4th game in 5 nights.  The Kings have lost all three games to the Clippers, Lakers and Suns.  Yesterday, the Kings were lookin good up 5 heading into the half in Phoenix but then blew it.  That loss had to be deflating as they couldn't win a game.    The Kings are probably rolling their eyes as today they play the Nuggets who have dumped on them by 27 and 29 points on both meetings this season.

The Nuggets are probably the fittest team in the league and play at the highest pace.  After impressive wins against Portland, Houston, and San Antonio the Nuggets are rolling.  They probably get back Gallinari, Koufos, and Nene to the lineup.  The Nuggets will want to keep the ship rolling after a bad February and I think they nullify the Kings best strength, their guards speed and quicks.

Pacers +7 (-110) to win 35 units and Pacers ML (+248) to win 35 units

Derrick Rose is pissed.  He "remembers" how the Pacers celebrated on the Bulls homecourt in the first meeting of the year.  Unfortunately, the Pacers are no slouch.  They are 3rd place, and after beating the Bulls this year and playing them neck-and-neck in 4/5 games in the playoffs last year they know they can beat and play with them.  Rose is pissed but the Pacers are pissed about the playoffs last year and this is turning to a great rivalry.  The Pacers have won 6 in a row but that was against weak competition.  This is another big statement game for them on the road where they have done well with wins over Dallas, Minny, Chicago, Boston, Orlando, and LA.  The Bulls had to put a lot into a physical game with the Sixers yesterday.  Gimme the Pacers here, as no one thinks the Bulls can lose.

Bucks ML (+112) to win 30 units

Milwaukee has sufferred some tough losses lately.  However, those losses were on the road against good teams, Orlando-Atlanta-Boston, where the Bucks had leads in the second-halfs.  Today the Bucks play the Sixers at home, and while the Bucks have been struggling to finish good teams they know they can beat the Sixers as they won the last 2 games over the Sixers at home last year.  Both teams are similar to last year.  The one knock on the Sixers this year is that they can't beat good teams.  After blowing it to the Thunder on Wednesday, they had a chance to redeem themselves verusus the Bulls on Sunday but blew a 6-pt halftime lead and choked hard in a comeback effort when they were down 2.  Philly now thinks they are not elite and facing a Bucks team hungry for a win is not a good thing.  B Jennings has been tearing it up and tonight's the night he gets it done.
