In just a few days, the Los Angeles Clippers (47-27 SU, 35-37-2 ATS)
will have Blake Griffin back in the lineup. But they'll be without him
this Thursday when they visit the Oklahoma City Thunder (52-23 SU,
32-40-3 ATS), winners of eight of their last nine games at 6-3 ATS.
Tip-off is at 9:30 PM ET on TNT.



The Clipshow is coming off a 99-79 thrashing of the Minnesota
Timberwolves last night. It was the Clippers' fourth straight win and
Doc Rivers has decided that Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick
will be rested when the team plays its fourth game in five days on
Thursday. With the news the starters will be rested the Thunder are a
15.5 point favorite and the total has dropped from 216 to 209.

This will be the fourth and final meeting of the regular season between
these two Western foes. Oklahoma City has the 2-1 advantage straight up,
although Los Angeles is 2-1 ATS in this series. They split a pair of
games home and away earlier this month with Griffin (23.2 PER) on the
sidelines. He'll be joined Thursday by Paul Pierce (8.0 PER), who's out
for an undetermined length of time with a right knee contusion.



The Thunder have one of the weaker benches among the NBA's second-tier
title contenders, but they also have two of the league's best players in
Russell Westbrook (27.8 PER) and Kevin Durant (28.2 PER). Westbrook has
seven triple-doubles in March alone, and he hasn't had to jack up as
many questionable shots this year to get the job done, now that Durant
is healthy and by his side.

The Final Four tips off on Saturday and the nightcap in Houston features
a pair of college bluebloods. The Syracuse Orange (+750 to win
championship) have surprised many to get to this point as a No. 10 – the
first ever to make it to the Final Four. The North Carolina Tar Heels
(+105 favorites to win championship) handled their business as the top
seed in their region.



Oddsmakers opened this line up with the Tar Heels favored by 9 points
and the total at 146. The point-spread has stayed pretty steady but the
total has been bet down to 144.5 with the defense Syracuse has been
playing.

The Orange (23-13 SU, 20-15 ATS) downed top-seeded Virginia 68-62 to
reach their sixth Final Four and their first since 2013. Malachi
Richardson netted 23 points for Syracuse, who were down by as many as 16
in the second half, but they fought back and rode their 2-3 zone
defense all the way to Houston. Syracuse has now allowed 55.7 points in
the NCAA Tournament.





The Tar Heels (32-6 SU, 19-18-1 ATS) powered past Notre Dame with an
88-74 win as Brice Johnson had his third double-double in a row with 25
points and 12 rebounds. North Carolina shot a ridiculous 61.5% from the
field and have averaged 89.2 points during the Tournament so far.





North Carolina has won three of their last five meetings with Syracuse, including both in ACC play this season.

The Philadelphia Flyers are on the verge of rescuing what looked like a
lost season. At press time, they're holding down the last Wild Card
berth in the Eastern Conference playoffs at 37-25-13. Philadelphia's
next game is this Wednesday (8 PM ET, NBCSN) against the best team in
the NHL, the 54-16-5 Washington Capitals. Oddsmaker have the Flyers as a
-115 moneyline favorite and the total is sitting at 5.

The Flyers have won eight of their 13 games this month despite having to
go with Steve Mason (.918 save percentage) in goal while Michal
Neuvirth (.925 SV%) was ill with a stomach virus – and after Neuvirth
tore his meniscus the day he returned. Mason has played reasonably well,
though, and aside from Neuvirth and defenseman Michal Del Zotto (torn
wrist ligaments), Philadelphia is relatively healthy for a change.



Washington is projected to start No. 1 netminder Braden Holtby (.923
SV%) on Wednesday. Holtby has enjoyed yet another strong season for the
Caps after finishing fourth in last year's Vezina Trophy race. He'll be
joined by winger TJ Oshie (24 goals, 22 assists), who returned to action
with a power-play goal in Monday's 4-1 win over the Columbus Blue
Jackets (+200 away) after missing two games with an undisclosed illness.
