NFL Super Bowl 2015 (last updated: 01/19)
December was another winning month for our complemenatry selections making it now seven consecutive positive
months. We have been offering free winning seletions for the last nine months now, with eight of them positive.

New England (13-4) vs. Seattle (14-4), 6:30 pm ET, NBC
The early line coming out of Las Vegas for Super Bowl XLIX had the NFC champion Seattle Seahawks as 2 1/2-point favorites over the AFC champion New England Patriots, but it quickly dropped to one point, and then went to pick 'em.
Some on-line sites, such as iodds had the line set during the third quarter of New England's 45-7 win over Indianapolis in the AFC title game on Sunday night, and then dropped it as the Patriots continued to pile it on the Colts.
The over/under point total opened at 49 and remained steady.
This will be the sixth trip to the Super Bowl in the Bill Belichick/Tom Brady era for the Patriots. They have been favored four times and were an underdog once.
The Patriots were a heavy underdog to the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI, but pulled off a 20-17 upset.
The Patriots were favored by a touchdown in Super Bowl XXXVIII and XXXIX wins over the Carolina Panthers and the Eagles, respectively, but won both games by just three points.
New England was also favored in their losses to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII and XLVI.
So while the Pats are 3-2 in Super Bowls under Belichick/Brady, they are just 1-4 against the spread; 1-0 as an underdog and 0-4 as a favorite.
The Seahawks were underdogs to the Denver Broncos in last year's Super Bowl and routed the Broncos, 43-8.
NBA Power Rankings (last updated: 01/19)
1. Atlanta (33-8):
You won't find a Hawk in the NBA's top 30 in points per game or minutes per game. They supposedly still need a real rim protector,
but who else would you put here when the Hawks are 26-2 since Thanksgiving ... and assisting on a league-high 70 percent of their made
baskets during that stretch?
2. Golden State (32-6):
After eight straight wins, all by at least 11 points, you can pardon what happened in Oklahoma City. Especially when you take note of
how the Dubs responded Saturday night in Houston. And when you remember they've won 15 straight home games. And 17 in a row when Andrew
3. Memphis (29-11):
Z-Bo is at 19.2 PPG and 13.8 RPG since coming back from that nine-game knee hiatus after averaging 16.1 PPG and 11.4 RPG in his first
26 games. The Grizz are 25-6 when he's in uniform ... but we must confess we wanted to devote all our space to this Pass of the Season
contender from Marc Gasol.
4. Portland (30-11):
Only three NBA teams on this MLK Day awoke with 30 wins. And the Blazers were one of them. That doesn't guarantee you anything --
most definitely not in the West -- but their first half overall has been too promising to treat the season's first three-game skid as
a crisis. You saw who they played, right?
5. San Antonio (26-16):
So much talk about the Thunder looming as the Most Feared No. 8 Seed Ever. What about the Spurs? Imagine if they held firm at No. 7.
You saw over the weekend what they're capable of now that Kawhi Leonard is back; it would truly be the most fearsome bottom end of a
playoff bracket in history.
CBA Power Rankings (last updated: 01/19)
1. Kentucky Wildcats (17-0, 4-0):
So, about those "What's wrong with Kentucky?" articles...
After a pair of overtime scares, the Wildcats were back with a vengeance this week, averaging better than 1.3 points per possession on offense while holding Missouri and Alabama to an average of 42.5 points.
Not only did the Wildcats get back to running the offense through their big men, but they were once again able to defend well without fouling. Ole Miss and Texas A&M attempted a combined 52 free throws while pushing Kentucky to the limit. Alabama and Missouri were awarded a grand total of 15 free throws in getting destroyed by Kentucky.
Basically, Kentucky looked like it did through the first 13 games of the season.
You remember that team, right? The one that made both Kansas and UCLA look like junior varsity teams? The team that pretty comfortably took care of business against legitimate title contenders in Louisville, North Carolina and Texas?
That team appears to be back, which means the rest of the country is back to fighting for silver.
Games this week: vs. Vanderbilt; at South Carolina
2. Virginia Cavaliers (17-0, 5-0):
Justin Anderson had a disastrous game against Boston College on Saturday. He came into the contest averaging 14.9 points per game, shooting 55.7 percent from three-point range and averaging 4.6 rebounds per game. Yet he shot 0-of-8 from the field and didn't grab a single rebound.
Virginia still won the road ACC game by 15 points.
"I've been saying this for a couple weeks now, but it's next man up," London Perrantes told Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post. "He's one of our best scorers on the team right now, but when he's off, other people can score."
It was a close battle for a solid 33 minutes, but the Cavaliers showed some serious strength and resolve to not get rattled in a hostile environment while getting next to nothing out of the man who had been their leader all season long.
At what point do we legitimately start to ask if this team could go undefeated?
Games this week: vs. Georgia Tech; at Virginia Tech
3. Gonzaga Bulldogs (18-1, 7-0):
Gonzaga got all it could handle from Pepperdine on Thursday night.
The Waves shot 50.9 percent from the field and committed just eight turnovers. According to KenPom.com (subscription required), they averaged 1.17 points per possession, which is usually a pretty good recipe for a win.
But Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis refused to let their team lose. The big men combined for 42 points on 25 field-goal attempts with 20 rebounds, five assists and just one turnover. Even though Pepperdine is considerably undersized, it was one of the most impressive displays of dominance by a frontcourt duo this season.
Gonzaga has six players who can completely take over a game on any given night, and the Bulldogs are going to get a seventh just as soon as Vanderbilt transfer Eric McClellan is healthy enough to play. It would be a pretty big shock if they lose another game before the NCAA tournament.
Games this week: vs. Saint Mary's; vs. Pacific
4. Duke Blue Devils (15-2, 3-2):
Duke has been living and dying by the three-pointer since the arc was painted on the courts three decades ago, but it's hard to remember the last time that was so clearly the case on the defensive end.
In the losses to North Carolina State and Miami, Duke's opponents shot 55.6 percent from beyond the arc. In the road win over Louisville on Saturday, the Cardinals shot just 16 percent from three-point range.
Was it because of the newly implemented zone defense or just because Louisville can't shoot its way out of a paper bag?
Will we continue to see the zone defense against poor three-point shooting teams like Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh and North Carolina, or was it a one-time strategy?
The game against Notre Dame on Jan. 28 should be the most compelling evidence for whether Duke once again has what it takes to win it all. If above-average three-point shooting teams are able to catch fire against the Blue Devils, what happens when they face one of the best three-point shooting teams in the country?
The marquee win over Louisville stopped the bleeding, but we'll find out soon enough if they simply slapped a band-aid on a wound that needs stitches.
Games this week: vs. Pittsburgh; at St. John's
5. Arizona Wildcats (16-2, 4-1):
Arizona's big win over Utah on Saturday is exactly why those earlier losses to UNLV and Oregon State were so darn frustrating.
According to ESPN's box score, the Wildcats had 17 offensive rebounds while the Utes had 19 total rebounds. The Wildcats finished the game with a plus-21 rebounding margin and held Utah to just seven two-point field goals.
With players like Stanley Johnson, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski at their disposal, your response might be, "Well, yeah, they should be able to do that."
So, why haven't they?
Oregon State—led by nine rebounds from 6'3" Gary Payton II and eight rebounds from 6'5" Langston Morris-Walker—outrebounded Arizona by six. UNLV owned the glass en route to a 46-33 rebounding margin.
When they care enough to crash the boards, the Wildcats might be the best team in the country. We'll see if they can maintain the level of effort they displayed in showing that the Pac-12 championship still goes through Tucson.
Games this week: at Stanford; at California
