LeBron reminded “rookie” Ben Simmons last night who is King,  and with last night’s win over the 76ers came the Cavs 7th straight win.

After three straight W’s the Heat are tied 1st with the Wizards in the South East, but with Cavs now rolling, we can’t look past them at home with that skinny line.

Cleveland rank 3rd in scoring offense at 110.8 points per game.

Miami are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Cleveland.

Best Bet  =  Cleveland ML

 -3.5  TBA  104-99

Chicago own the worst record in the league and rank 29th in scoring at 94.3 points per game. There only saving grace tonight could be an injury to Devin Booker, who remains uncertain to start with a toe injury.

These two teams rank in the bottom three in terms of defensive efficiency and the Suns play at one of the fastest tempos in the league, expect a lot of fast breaks and missed layups.

If Booker sits, take the Bulls ML.

Best Bet = Chicago ML  Booker Played so we’ll take this as VOID.

Washington @ Minnesota

The T-Wolves rank 25th in OPP PPG however with Wall still sitting we’ll take them, but only at the ML.

Both let through some points, so we’ll keep our eye on the Overs when they come out.

Best Bet  = Minnesota ML 

Milwaukee @ Sacramento

The Kings shocked the world last night taking down the Warriors at Oracle Arena as -16.0 underdogs. Back at home against the Bucks tonight Sac should be full of confidence.

The Bucks should take this, but after some bonding on the flight back to Sac, the Kings will have enough swagger to hold the +7.0 line.

Best Bet  = Sacramento +7.0  or Over 198.5 

Denver @ Utah

H2H Trends –

  • Denver are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Utah.

Denver out-rebounded the Grizzlies by a staggering 61-31 last time out in a 104-92 win. With the Jazz ranking 27th with 40.2 rebounds per game, the Nuggets should bang the boards tonight and get the job done in Utah.

Underdogs get up tonight.

Best Bet = Denver +1.5
