Spread O/U Points Result
 Golden State  Over  Golden State
 -11.0  227.0  133-112

Golden State rank 1st in the league in offensive efficiency and both teams like to play fast so we like the Overs here. The Warriors haven’t been blowing teams but tonight they may well find the 5th gear that we know they have.

Best Bet  = Over 227.0  

Detroit @ Washington

H2H Trends –

  • Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
  • Detroit are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings

Spread O/U Points Result
Detroit  Washington
 -1.5  TBA  109-91

Washington has dropped 5 of their last 7 and with Wall sitting for another 2 weeks following platelet-rich plasma injections in his knee, and Beal probable following an elbow to the face, things aren’t that rosy in Washington.

Detroit at the line.

Best Bet = Detroit -1.5 

Indiana @ Toronto

H2H Trends –

  • Indiana are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
  • Under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
  • Indiana are 10-25 ATS in the last 35 meetings in Toronto

Spread O/U Points Result
 Toronto  Over  Toronto
 -6.5  215.5  120-115

These two squads rank in the top six in the league in offensive efficiency so we’ll take the Overs tonight with a fairly generous 215.5 line.  Toronto beat Indiana twice at home last season by an average of 18 points, and although it shouldn’t be that large tonight, Toronto for the ML.

Best Bet  = Over 215.5  

Sacramento @ Chicago

H2H Trends –

  • Under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Chicago.
  • Under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
  • Sacramento are 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Chicago

Chicago 3 17 2-6 1-11

Chicago 95.3 106.9 -11.6

Picks against the spread

Spread O/U Points Result
 Sacramento  Under  Sacramento
 -1.5  193.0  107-106

The Bulls pushed the Nuggets to the wire last night in a 111-110 loss and although they didn’t walk out with the W, some confidence would have been taken from their performance on one of the hardest away courts in the NBA.

Chicago have taken the last five meetings, including both of last season’s matchups, however we’ll take the under tonight, with the Bulls a little tired after their Denver trip.

Should be very sloppy.

Best Bet  = NO BET

If you must – Under 193.0 

San Antonio @ Memphis

H2H Trends –

  • Over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
  • Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Memphis.
  • San Antonio are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Memphis

Picks against the spread

Spread O/U Points Result
 San Antonio  Over  San Antonio
 -4.5  193.0  95-79

The Spurs have won 5 of their last 6 to hold 3rd spot in the West, allowing a league second best 98.4 OPP PPG.

On the other end of the spectrum are the Grizzlies, who’ve lost their last 9 and rank 28th in PPG with 98.6.

Won’t buck the form here, Spurs at the line a nice bet.

Best Bet = Spurs ML 

Charlotte @ Miami

H2H Trends –

  • Over is 11-3 in the last 14 meetings in Miami.
  • Under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings

 +2.5  TBA  105-100

Whiteside will be questionable with an ongoing knee issue, while for the Hornets Lamb and Walker remain questionable. Wait for lineups before throwing the $ out there, but if all suit up, we’ll take Charlotte as Underdogs.

Best Bet  = Charlotte +2.5 

Minnesota @ Oklahoma City

H2H Trends –

  • No recent Head to Head trends.

Win/Loss 

TEAM W L HOME ROAD
Minnesota 13 9 7-4 6-5
OKC 8 12 6-3 2-9

Minnesota 107.8 107.2 +0.5
OKC 102.3 99.3 +3.1

Picks against the spread

Spread O/U Points Result
 Minnesota  Under  OKC
 +4.5  211.0  111-107

Minnesota dropped 120 points on New Orleans on Wednesday night and showed us just how talented they are. Talent is also on the OKC roster, however they have been stinking to high hell with one win over their last 6 games and some of the worst ball movement we’ve seen.

Like the W-Wolves here and we’ll stay away from the Thunder until they find some chemistry.

Best Bet  =  Minnesota +4.5  

New Orleans @ Utah

H2H Trends –

  • New Orleans are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
  • Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
  • New Orleans are 5-12-3 ATS in the last 20 meetings in Utah

Win/Loss

New Orleans 11 10 5-5 6-5
Utah 11 11 9-4 2-7

New Orleans 108 108.9 -1.0
Utah 102.6 99.6 +3.0

Picks against the spread

Spread O/U Points Result
 Utah  Utah
 +1.0  TBA  114-108

Utah erupted for 100 points over the final three quarters against the Clippers last night and established a season-high scoring output with a 126-107 road win. Like the Jazz here as short Underdogs, but would keep my money away from this one.

Best Bet = NO BET

If you must – Utah +1.0
