Chicago Over Chicago
-2.0 200.5 91-86

 

Spread Confidence = 

The Bulls were able to take it up to the Cavs with their young line up and with the Hawks a little banged up, they will be favorites. However, both teams are seemingly in tank mode already so a win will be worth 2 in the wrong direction.

Dallas @ Memphis

H2H Trends –

  • Over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Memphis.
  • Dallas are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Memphis.

Win/Loss

 -7.5 196.5 96-91

 

Spread Confidence = 

As expected, the Mavs were able to upset the Grizzlies at home. With the double header in Memphis tonight, we see the teams splitting the result.

Boston @ Milkwaukee

H2H Trends –

  • Boston are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee.
  • Over is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings.
  • Under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee 105.3 105.0 +0.3

Picks against the spread

Spread O/U Points Result
Milwaukee Over Boston
  -4.0 207.0 96-89

 

Confidence = 

The Bucks will go in favorites but expect Coach Stevens to come prepared since Milwaukee got the W last out. East contenders going at each other already in October is too hard to gauge.

LA Clippers @ Portland

H2H Trends –

  • Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
  • Over is 15-6-2 in the last 23 meetings in Portland.

Win/Loss 

TEAM W L HOME ROAD

Portland 112.8 94.5 +8.3

Picks against the spread

Portland Under LA Clippers
 -2.0 211.5 104-103

 

Spread Confidence = 

Clippers are showing no ill effects since CP3’s departure, however, they havent had much to go against. Law of averages suggest a loss is around the corner for the Clips with Portland also starting the season on fire.

New Orleans @ Sacramento

H2H Trends –

  • Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Sacramento.
  • New Orleans are 6-18-1 ATS in the last 25 meetings in Sacramento.

New Orleans 105.8 111.5 -5.8
Sacramento 96.8 101.5 -4.8

Picks against the spread

Spread O/U Points Result
Sacramento Over New Orleans
 -2.5 203.0  114-106

 

Spread Confidence = 

With Anthony Davis under an injury cloud, the Kings will go in as favorites. However, if AD is able to make to game, see the odds flip on themselves. Cousins gets to greet the fans in Sac-Town since his trade last season. Wait for lineups.
