Feeling Lucky: Total Points Over 206.5 @-110 – With the 76ers averaging almost 100 points per game, the Over with a Bucks win looks achievable.

Picks –

Best Bet: Boston -5.5 @-110 Boston have won 12 of their last 15, while the Hornets are struggling with 3 win from their last 10. This line is great value for a Boston home game.

Feeling Lucky: Nope, take the best bet and be happy that you did.

11.06.16 – Golden State Warriors 108 @ Cleveland Cavaliers 97

Picks –

Best Bet:  Total Points Under 224.5 @-110 – The last 5 matchups have been a scrappy affair, with none getting close to this line.

Feeling Lucky: Golden State -7.5 @-110- Golden State The game of the night and the NBA Finals replay.  Hard to get a gauge on the Cavs, resting the starting 5 frequently has thrown us off. They’ll bring the big guns out tonight in Golden State however.

Cleveland have won the last 4 in this matchup, but the Warriors will get the W.

Picks – 

Best Bet: Utah WIN @-217 – The Suns have been hit and miss, while the Jazz have been as sure as death and taxes. They’ll beat the line tonight, and then some.

01.04.16 – Los Angeles Clippers 117 @ Oklahoma City Thunder 119

Picks –

Best Bet:  Nope.

Feeling Lucky: Oklahoma City +7.0 @-110 – The Clips are still without Griffin, who should return soon. The Thunder played last night in a win over the Kings in Sac. The day’s break and home court advantage will push the Clips over the line. Should be closer than the line suggests however.
