The Say

With Detroit getting one past the Cavs at Quiken Loans, the Hornets will have some confidence to do the same thing. Cleveland will be unlikely to drop two in a row at home so expect them to bounce back. Hopefully Kyrie is over his bed bugs issue in OKC.

-8.0  +15 202.5 202.5 108-105

The Say

After dropping a game to the Heat away, the Pacers found form in their win against the Thunder last week and have been ballin’ since. The Knicks are the opposite, and in their last 14 have only won twice against the lowly Wolves and Suns.

The Say

Even without the Thornton/Motiejunis trade going through, the Pistons are making a late charge for the post season, defeating the Cavs away. Coming up against Philly at home should be a walkover.

-8.5  +12 215.0 215.0 118-112

The Say

The Warriors are taking their talents to South Beach. That phrase never gets old. Chris Bosh is still out but the Heat have jumped right up to 3rd spot with some good solid play of late. Whiteside, McBob and Deng have stepped up to fill the Bosh void but will need an offensive miracle to stop the Warriors. Miami have the 3rd worst offense in the East.

The Say

With a 19-6 record at home, the Raptors are tough to beat. Maybe it’s the customs check or that perhaps they are just that good! Great job Masai, just need a playoff series win now. Minnesota were able to upset the Celtics at home but wont be able to do the same in Toronto.

The Say

Washington, like Detroit are making a last ditched run for the post season. Playing the Bulls in Chicago without All-Star Jimmy Butler helps their chances even more. The Bulls are one of our ‘choose at your own risk’ teams so expect some surprises.

Best Bet: Washington +15.5 @1.20

The Say

The Grizzlies are still winning the ‘winnable’ games without Gasol but struggle against the plus .500 teams. The Lakers aren’t a top team by any stretch, although have shown at times to push teams just enough. Memphis at home are a good thing, but filling in the space Gasol has left will be an ongoing issue.

The Say

The Mavericks almost stole a win against the Thunder in their last meeting at American Airlines Center. Dallas would need a similar scoring output to trouble the Thunder again. Oklahoma have lost 2 straight but will be back on the winners list tonight.

The Say

Sacramento did us proud last night with the Feeling Lucky bet but don’t see them getting close to the Spurs. San Antonio haven’t been too convincing of late with close ones against the Suns and Lakers. Kings may put up a fight but not enough to steal the win.

Best Bet: San Antonio WIN @1.22
