A 4-17 road record for the Jazz gives little confidence against a Charlotte team looking to get a much needed win at home.

Best Bet  =  Charlotte ML  

Cleveland @ Indiana

H2H Trends – 

  • Cleveland are 4-12-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
  • Over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

The Cavs were dismal last night in a 133-99 loss away in Toronto (before that a 127-99 loss to Minnesota), at times looking like traffic cones while the Raptors made their way to the rim at will.

These two teams rank in the top eight in offensive efficiency and the Cavaliers rank second worst in defensive efficiency, take the overs.

No faith in either at the moneyline, with the Cavs desperate for a showing tonight.

Best Bet = Over 222.0

Orlando @ Washington

H2H Trends – 

  • Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Washington.

Washington are ahead in every statistical category. Against the Magic who’ve dropped their last six we can’t see anything other than a comfortable Wizards win.

Take the overs, with the Magic ranking 17th defensively in the league.

Best Bet  = Washington -10.5  

Brooklyn @ Atlanta

H2H Trends – 

  • Under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Atlanta.

The Hawks own the worst record in the league, rank 26th on rebounds and 24th in scoring. The Nets are only slightly better, and the best bet in this one is to stay away. Go the overs if you must.

Nets are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

Best Bet  = NO BET

Best Bet  = Over 211.0 

Golden State @ Milwaukee

Klay Thompson is rested and ready while Curry remains questionable (ankle), but most likely will miss.

The Warriors have the best road record in the league, and that will improve tonight against the Bucks with the -6.0 for the Warriors looking tempting.

Best Bet = Golden State ML or Golden State -6.0

New York @ Minnesota

H2H Trends – 

  • New York are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
  • New York are 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Minnesota.

 -9.0  TBC  118-108

The T-Wolves have been on fire lately while the Knicks have returned the the awful team that we’ve been used to in recent years.

The Knicks swept the two meetings last season and won 7 of the last 9 matchups. That trend will buck tonight, with the T-Wolves winning, that -9.0 line is a little big for us though.

Under is 7-1 in Timberwolves last 8 games.

Best Bet  = NO BET

Best Bet  = Minnesota -9.0 

Portland @ New Orleans

H2H Trends – 

  • Under is 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings.

 -2.0  TBC  119-113

Portland and New Orleans split two games in Portland earlier in the season. Both have been bouncing between wins and losses lately and this one is dangerous for the bettors.

Still waiting on the overs line, that may be best, otherwise go the home team.

Best Bet  =  New Orleans ML 

Memphis @ Denver

H2H Trends – 

  • Under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Denver.
  • Under is 14-6 in the last 20 meetings.

 Memphis  Under  Denver
 +7.5  207.5  87-78

Denver will try to avoid a 2nd straight loss to a team at the bottom of the standings after falling to Atlanta, the leagues worst.

Like the Nuggets for the ML, that lines too big though. Unders best.

Best Bet = Under 207.5 

Houston @ Phoenix

H2H Trends – 

  • Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Phoenix.
  • Over is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings.
  • Houston are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

Houston 115.0 107.2 +7.8

Picks against the spread

 Houston  Over  Houston
 -7.0  227.0  112-95

Houston are still banged up, with Harden and Nene sitting. Probably best to stay away from this one with the -7.0 for the Rockets pretty risky.

Houston ML probably best if you just need some cream on the parlay.

Best Bet  = NO BET

Best Bet  =Houston ML or  Houston -7.0
