Cleveland 111.3 106.0 +5.3

Picks –

The news of losing PF Kevin Love for 6 weeks didnt alter the Cavs who were able to take the road win in Minnesota. However on a B2B against an old rival will test them. No rest for the Cavs with Boston breathing down their necks.

Best Bet: Cleveland WIN @1.39 (-256)

Feeling Lucky: Cleveland -6.0 @1.95 (-105)

Picks –

Still on the road, the Spurs will be looking forward to the All Star break. The Magic just handed the PF position to Aaron Gordon with Ibaka getting shipped to Toronto. First up is a tussle with LaMarcus Aldridge. Will be hard to see Orlando break the 80 mark tonight. Although, watch out for the Popovich rest card to be played.

Best Bet: May need to wait for the lineups.

Feeling Lucky: Total Points Under 205.5 @1.91 (-110)

Dallas 98.2 100.4 -2.2
Detroit 101.3 101.9 -0.6

Picks –

Prior to their loss to the Spurs, Detroit had won 4 straight at home and will look to capitalize tonight. Without Bogut, the Mavericks will struggle in the paint guarding Drummond and have only been on the road in the East twice in the last 4 weeks. Home court advantage prevails here.

Best Bet: Detroit WIN @1.48 (-203)

Feeling Lucky: Total Points Under 201.0 @1.91 (-110)

Picks –

The Nets are now on loss number 13 in a row and it looks as though their next win will come at the hands of the other team not showing up….. which could be tonight. The Bucks have been up and down this season but have won 2 big games against the Pacers and Pistons which has put them back in playoff contention. Still not bank tonight.

Best Bet: Milwaukee WIN @1.44 (-227)

Feeling Lucky: Total Points Over 220.0 @1.91 (-110)

Picks –

Boston keeps rolling win a 9/1 record over their last 10 with an eye on the top seed in the East, while the 76ers have formed a little streak of their own with 3 straight W’s.

Not a lot to ponder here in the H2H market, we’ll also take the line for the Celtics.

The over is 11-3 in Philadelphia’s last 14 outings.

Best Bet: Nope.

Picks –

Charlotte have lost 10 of their last 11 and away in Toronto tonight they should be flattered by the -6.5 line.

Picks –

After winning 13 straight, the Heat have now lost their last 2 and head to Houston to face the Rockets who’ve won their last 4 after being unable to string two wins together for a couple of weeks.

The Rockets have 2 day’s rest on the Heat, and should get the win tonight, that line is just too large for us though.

Best Bet: Miami +9.5 @1.91 (-110)

Portland 107.6 110.1 -2.5
Utah 100.0 95.8 +4.2

Picks –

Best Bet: Utah WIN @1.22 (-455)Despite losing their last three, the Jazz will rightly go in as heavy favourite. They have lost four of their last seven home games, but all have been against teams with winning records; they haven’t lost at home to a team with a losing record since December 23 (Sacramento).

Feeling Lucky: Utah -8.5 @1.91 (-110) The Jazz have won their last five games against teams under 0.500 by an average of 17.8 points. The Blazers have lost 13 of their last 17 games on the road, with 6 of those losses being by more than eight points.

Sacramento @ Golden State

Picks against the spread

Spread Pick O/U Points Result
-14.5 225.5 109 – 86

Win/Loss

TEAM HOME ROAD
Sacramento 12-15 12-17
Golden State 23-3 23-6

Points +/-

TEAM OWN OPP DIFF
Sacramento 103.3 105.6 -2.3
Golden State 118.4 105.8 +12.6

Picks –

Best Bet: Nope. No Value here. Golden State have lost 18 of their last 137 regular season games and the Kings, despite their recent winning streak and a victory when these teams last met, are in a world of trouble in this game.  The Warriors could score 140 and it would be no surprise to see them score more than 80 points in the first half.

Feeling Lucky: Golden State -14.5 @1.91 (-110)After each of their previous eight losses this season, Golden State have won the next game by an average of 14.7 points. They have won their last six home games by an average of 29.7 points per game.
