The Say

The race in the East got a little hotter with the Raptors taking down the Cavs twice in Toronto this season. Only 2 games ahead, the Cavs will need to keep the foot on the gas as they head to the Nation’s Capital.

Best Bet: Cleveland WIN @1.43

The Say

The Hornets have been full steam ahead since their injury worries lessened. Defeating the Pacers away twice in 2 weeks shows that they can win on the road to teams in a similar position to them. The Hawks are still a tough task to beat at home, but the Hornets would be confident to make it close.

Best Bet: Charlotte +14.5 @1.22

The Say

Toronto keep passing the tests they come up against, although, they usually take place at home. However, they have been to the Palace this season and came out with the win. Detroit are playing like a young team – inconsistent. If there was another jersey being retired tonight they would be a shoe in, but they will need all things to click to knock off the Raptors.

Best Bet: Nothing stands out 

Feeling Lucky: Toronto WIN @1.62

The Say

Portland were derailed by Houston the other day but got back on track defeating the Bulls last night. Even though Indiana have a good home record, they still find themselves battling the wins out. Portland could push this.

Best Bet: Portland +9.5 @1.48

Philly have won 1 of their last 10, and whilst the Magic are nothing to write home about either, they should take the choccies at home.

 -6.5  -2.5 214.5 214.5 128-101

The Say

Both Minnesota and Dallas are 4-6 over their last 10. Towns continues to impress on his way towards the ROY trophy, averaging 17.5 ppg and 10.2 rbs. Minnesota had a tough outing last night in a close away win over the Pelicans, and that may have taken a little out of the young side. Dallas are at home with a red hot Raymond Felton, yes that’s right, and a day’s break. Against a leaky Minnesota defence, we can’t see anything other than a Mavs W.

Best Bet: Dallas WIN @1.33

Feeling Lucky: Under 214.5 @1.91

The Say

2 of the 3 super-friends meet again at MSG, as the still Bosh-Less Heat take on the Knicks, who are 2 wins from their last 10 outings. Bosh may sit for the remainder of the year, following problems with blood clots in his lungs, and subsequent issues with blood thinners possibly affecting his game. Melo has been in struggle-town, shooting only 30% over the Knick’s last 2 games. The Knicks are showing no form at home or away, and with Wade in career form, Whiteside locking down the paint, and an eye on the top 3 seed in the East, the Heat are looking good for an away win.

Best Bet: Miami WIN +4.5 @1.39

Feeling Lucky: Miami WIN @1.94
