The Trends-

  • Over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings in Atlanta.
  • Under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.

Home court has been the tale of this series, and heading back to Atlanta, the Hawks are again favourites. Do we dare go against the tide?

There’s a little more pressure in this home court outing for the Hawks, with elimination on the line, they could get that extra 10% from the crowd, or they could try a little too hard and make mistakes.

Dwight has done sweet FA in 4th quarters in this series, and has brought out another classic Dwight v Coach quote –

“I believe in our team. Whoever Coach puts on the floor is who he feels is the best at the moment.” Lol, yeah right.

We’ll go with the underdogs Wizards tonight to close it out.

28.10.16 Bulls Boston 105 : 99

The Trends-

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

Boston has now won the last 3 in this series convincingly. Can’t help but think that the Bulls are cooked, with that 20-4 run to close out Game 5 showing some glaring lack of effort from the Bulls.

Boston to advance tonight.

14.02.17 Jazz Clippers 72 : 88
31.10.16 Clippers Jazz 88 : 75

The Trends –

  • Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Utah.
  • Clippers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
  • Clippers are 6-16-1 ATS in the last 23 meetings in Utah.

The loss of Griffin has leveled the offensive playing field a little, and with Utah’s elite defense the Clippers have struggled to find options other than a few jacked up shots from JJ Redick and co.

With a full, healthy roster back on court in this one, the Jazz should close this out.

Picks –

Best Pick: Total Points Under 192.5

Feeling Lucky Pick – Utah -5.5
