Memphis at MINNESOTA (237')
By Trace Adams, Featured Handicapper
Dropped my 1500♦ Raise the Bar release last night on Arizona State, as the Sun Devils looked good early scoring the first 12 points of the game, but wound up falling in overtime to the Huskies.
Let's return to the winner's circle for Friday with a blowout winner that sets the table for a monster weekend.

Let's get down to business on the college hardwood with this double-digit blowout winner.
The oddsmakers have been making the totals for both the Memphis Grizzlies and the Minnesota Timberwolves a little bit hard to hurdle, and for that reason, I will look for tonight's Memphis-Minnesota showdown at the Target Center to land Under the posted price.
The Grizzlies enter this Friday road game having played each of their last 4 games Under the total, and 15 of their 25 this season on the road have also landed Low.
The Timberwolves have landed Under the total in 4 of their last 7 games and for the season 14 of their 26 played at home have held Under the posted price.
After their memorable 6-game playoff series last April that saw 4 of the final 5 games hold Under, these Western Conference rivals have played a pair of regular season games this year that have both landed Under the posted price.
With another big total - 237 as I release this freebie - on the horizon tonight, go with the Under to be the way to play this Memphis-Minnesota Under game Under the posted price.

Four nights back I followed a 7-0 run with College Basketball 100 Dimers with a 150 Dime Winner on the Colgate Raiders.
Three nights back I followed that with a 150 Dime Winner on Clemson.
Two nights back I did it again with a 150 Dime Winner on Duquesne.
Last night I got back on the 100-Dime Freight Train, and made it eight in a row with Radford getting it done against Longwood.
Tonight I'm in the MAAC for the battle between Iona and Siena.

The Memphis Grizzlies are struggling terribly right now, on a four-game skid, and the Minnesota Timberwolves have allowed nearly 117 points per game the past nine games.
Both teams come in with a bit of a desperate mindset, in needing a win, and the only way to do so will be by attacking offensively.
For the season, the Grizzlies have been one of the top teams offensively, in terms of points per 100 possessions in non-garbage time (116.2 points per game). And they'll be playing much more desperate than the 'Wolves.
This is certainly one of those games where you see the road chalk open the game with a flurry, and a halftime score emitting showdown. The third quarter sets up the fourth, and we see it coming down a shot-for-shot marathon that will end up with a high-scoring final.

Play the Over tonight at the Chase Center when the Raptors and the Warriors lace them up.
Toronto has landed Over the total in 4 of their last 6 games, and in 6 of their last 9 games overall, while Golden State has gone 5-2-1 Over the total in their last 8 games played.
For the season, the Raptors have landed Over the total in 13 of their 22 road games played, while the Warriors are 27-18-3 Over the total for their 48 games overall this season.
Included in those Over marks is a December 18th meeting in Canada that landed Over the total by 13 points to make it 3 straight and 5 of the last 7 between the teams having landed Over the total.
Based on the recent series numbers, and on both teams' recent Over trends, go ahead and play this Friday night meeting to also land Over the total.
