Sacramento 103.1 106.1 -3.0
OKC 106.8 106.1 +0.7

Picks –

Despite winning their last 2, there’s not a lot of reason to jump on the Kings, because they lost 8 straight before that.

The Thunder are looking for their 5th straight and will get the W tonight, that H2H line of $1.07 (-1428) is ridiculous however.

Best Bet: Nope.

Feeling Lucky: Total Points Under 216.5 @1.91 (-110)


Portland @ Atlanta

Picks against the spread

Atlanta  Under  Portland
-3.0  214.0 113-97

Portland 17-14 13-23

Points +/-

TEAM OWN OPP DIFF
Portland 108.1 110.2 -2.1
Atlanta 103.7 104.4 -0.7

Picks –

Atlanta have won their last 2, including an upset at the hands of the Grizzlies last out at home, which lightened our pockets.

The Blazers have won 6 of their last 8, and the acquiring of Nurkic from Denver has been a big reason behind some nice form. Portland have 15 games left, with 10 at home. The Nuggets have 14 left, 9 on the road, with a couple more road wins they could still squeeze out that last playoff spot.

This one could go either way, but we’ll go with the form team.

Best Bet: Portland +3.0 @1.91 (-110)

Feeling Lucky: Portland WIN @2.33 (+133)


Washington @ Charlotte

Picks against the spread

Washington  Over  Charlotte

Washington 109.0 106.9 +2.1
Charlotte 104.9 104.4 +0.5

Picks –

Washington are 7-3, Charlotte are 4-6 over 10 and have lost their last 3.

Not a lot of faith in the Hornets who posted a season low 77 points last out in a loss to the Pacers. Batum will return following a miss with a migraine.

We’ll take Washington here.

Best Bet:  Washington +3.5 @1.91 (-110)

Feeling Lucky: Washington WIN @2.44 (+144)


Cleveland @ LA Clippers

Cleveland 110.7 106.1 +4.6
LA Clippers 107.7 105.1 +2.6

Picks –

The Cavs have split their last 10 following a shaky fortnight, but have won their last 2.

The Clippers are 4-6 over their last 10, and have lost their last 3.

Cleveland have been hit with injury and may miss Shumpert, Irving, Korver and Derrick Williams. The Clips may get back DeAndre Jordan and Griffin following rest.

We’ll take the Clippers here against a second string Cavs unit. Watch for lineups closer to tip-off.

Best Bet: LA Clippers WIN @1.80 (-125)

Feeling Lucky: LA Clippers -2.0 @1.91 (-110)


Utah @ Chicago

Utah 100.5 96.3 +4.2
Chicago 101.8 103.3 -1.5

Picks –

The Bulls have just about shut up shop for the season, and have done what they do best this year, disappoint. But it gets worse, with Wade now sitting for the rest of year with a fractured elbow.

The Jazz are on the verge of their first playoff appearance in 5 years, and should get over the line tonight.

Best Bet: Utah WIN @1.34 (-300)

Feeling Lucky: Total Points Over 192.0 @1.91 (-110)


San Antonio @ Memphis

Picks against the spread

Points +/-

TEAM OWN OPP DIFF
San Antonio 106.5 98.5 +8.0
Memphis 101.4 100.4 +1.0

Picks –

The old boys in Memphis have won their last 3 after a run of 5 straight losses before that.

The Spurs are 8-2 over their last 10 , and welcomed back Aldridge in a 110-106 loss to the Hawks last out.

The Spurs are hard to go past here with a day’s rest on the Grizzlies, with the improved defense of Memphis keeping the total low.

Best Bet: San Antonio WIN @1.61 (-163)

Feeling Lucky: San Antonio -3.5 @1.91 (-110)


Houston @ Denver

Picks against the spread

Houston  Under  Houston
-2.5 239.5  109-105

Win/Loss

Houston 25-9 22-13
Denver 20-16 13-19

Points +/-

TEAM OWN OPP DIFF
Houston 115.5 108.1 +7.4
Denver 111.2 110.8 +0.4

Picks –

On a B2B tonight the Rockets may find the going tough against a Nuggets team that has renewed energy, much of that due to the big fella Nikola Jokic, who chalked up his fifth triple-double of the season in Thursday’s win over the Clips.

We’ll take the Rockets away, but the best bet has to be the unders, that line is astronomical, even for this matchup.

Best Bet: Total Points Under 239.5 @1.91 (-110)

Feeling Lucky: Denver WIN @2.14 (+114)


Milwaukee @ Golden State

Picks against the spread

Spread Pick O/U Points Result
Milwaukee  Over  Golden State
+11.5 217.0  117-92

Win/Loss

TEAM HOME ROAD
Milwaukee 20-16 14-18
Golden State 28-4 26-10

Points +/-

TEAM OWN OPP DIFF
Milwaukee 104.8 104.3 +0.5
Golden State 116.2 105.1 +11.1

Picks –

The Bucks are 8-2 over 10, the Warriors 5-5.

That +12.5 line for Milwaukee looks good, however on a B2B against the Warriors, who found some swagger in a 122-92 demolition of Orlando, it may be justified.

The Warriors should get the W, but that line sits better for the Bucks.

Best Bet: Nope.

Feeling Lucky: Total Points Over 217.0 @1.91 (-110).
