LeBron is coming of a 57 point winning outing against the Wizards in a game which also brought him into the esteemed company of the 29,000 points club (the youngest ever). The Cavs had lost 5 of 6 before LeBrons statement, and lost the faith of many punters early in the season.

Atalanta has lost 8 straight since their season opening win, and we cannot give them a chance to win this.

That lines too high though, no blowouts with the Cavs as yet…

Miami @ LA Clippers

The Clippers are on a back-to-back afternoon game schedule amidst a 4 game home stretch that has brought an awful 1-3 record thus far. They’d be hoping for more from tonight.

Clippers to win and cover, but if that line extends beyond the -5.5 well think twice.

Boston @ Orlando

H2H Trends –

Boston and Orlando sit atop the East and are in a sweet vein of form despite a most recent home loss to the Magic (their first home loss).

The Celtics are on a 7 game streak and lead the league in OPP PPG with 93.8 and are elite in OPP FG% (43.1) and OPP 3 point % (32.1).

Boston has won 19 of the last 24 meetings between the two, and although that counts for little here, we’re on the Celtics for the line to continue the trend.

Washington @ Toronto

H2H Trends –

  • Under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Toronto.
  • Washington are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Toronto.

John Wall suffered a sprained left shoulder in the 130-122 defeat of the Cavaliers and although he finished the game and played 8 minutes, he was wearing a sling after the game. Not a good sign.

The Raptors wrapped up their 6 game road trip and return to Canada for a 3 game home stand. With Wall sitting (keep an eye on the lineups) we’ll take the Raptors at home. Perhaps void if Wall suits up.

Utah @ Houston

H2H Trends –

  • Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
  • Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Houston.
  • Utah are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Houston.

The Jazz have been betting poison for us through the last few years, especially against the Rockets.

Cannot look past Houston here tonight at home. That line is just skinny enough to warrant a few units.

Phoenix @ San Antonio

  • Phoenix are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in San Antonio.

The Spurs got their mojo back with a win at home against the Hornets. Most teams find it a bridge too far to win in San Antonio and the Suns will get that feeling tonight.

Indiana @ New York

The Knicks have been playing good basketball on MSG with the assistance of Kristaps Porzingis who is averaging 29.0 ppg. Proving to be the Franchise Player Phil Jackson drafted, he will need to pull out all stops tonight as they face a very quick Indiana Pacers team. The Pacers have the 4th best offense in the leauge with 111.3 ppg, the Knicks will have to have a shoot out to grab the win here.

Charlotte @ Minnesota

The Wolves have won 4 straight and have the 7th best offense in the league. However, they are one of two teams (Spurs) in the top 8 of the West with a negative scoring differential. When a defense is averaging 111.6 points per game scored against, any team would feel there a chance. Over looks juicy.

Oklahoma City @ Portland

The Thunder are 4-4 in the first eight games of this season with PG13 and Melo. Same time last year when it was the Westbrook 100% usage show, OKC were 6-2. Its early but this team is slightly under achieving with their last loss against Boston on home court the most disappointing. Portland could see this as a slap in the face not being the favorite.

Memphis @ LA Lakers

Even with a buzzer beater loss two games ago, the Lakers have been playing well of late and will go into tonight’s game with confidence. Lopez will have to back it up to stop Gasol while the addition of Kuzma in the starting lineup worked wonders. Memphis took down the Clippers last night were seven players including their whole bench who hit the floor scored in double figures. On a B2B, Memphis could be vulnerable.
