Toronto  NO BET  Toronto
-4.0  TBC  100-91

The road team has taken the last 4 in this series. With Wall looking to sit with fluid in his knee the swing certainly goes to the home team Raptors going for 4 straight wins.

Toronto rank 3rd in PPG and have enough fire power to get over the Wizards while Wall sits. (Watch for lineups close to gametime).

Best Bet  =  Toronto ML  

Indiana @ Miami

H2H Trends –

  • Indiana are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
  • Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

Spread O/U Points Result
 Indiana Over
 +4.5  206.0

The Pacers showed real heart getting over the Pistons last out after trailing by 22 points in the 3rd, taking the win 107-100.

Miami has won their last 6 at home in this matchup but we’re expecting a close contest.

We’ll buck the consensus and roll with the underdog, Overs best.

Best Bet = Over 206.0

Golden State @ Brooklyn

  • Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Brooklyn.
  • Under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings

 Golden State  Under  Golden State
 -12.5  234.0  118-111

Last night the Warriors hit 5th gear and overcame a 74-52 halftime deficit in Philadelphia by going on a 47-15 rampage in the 3rd, eventually taking the win 124-116 and breaking some hearts in Philly at the same time.

Golden State rank 1st in offensive efficiency and both teams rank in the top 5 in game tempo so you’d expect a shootout tonight. That line is a little high for a team on a B2B game that may be a blowout, so we’ll take the Unders.

Golden State won both meetings last season by an average of 16.5 points.

Durant looks to be out here, so perhaps look for a Klay Thompson Player Prop (Over 22.5 points).

Best Bet  = No Bet.

If You Must = Under 234.0

Detroit @ Minnesota

H2H Trends –

  • Detroit are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
  • Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

 Minnesota  Over  Detroit
 -6.0  208.5  100-97

The TWolves have won 3 straight and are emerging as the exciting team that we hoped for at the start of the season. With all 5 starters scoring in double figures last out in a 111-87 slaughter of Dallas.

The Pistons blew a 22 point lead in Indiana last out and their current road trip is not overly impressive.

Young T-Wolves to get it done at home,

Best Bet  = Minnesota ML

Chicago @ Phoenix

H2H Trends –

  • Bulls are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Phoenix.

 Phoenix  Under  Phoenix
 -2.5  214.0  113-105

It’s the battle for the Mayor of Struggle Town tonight, and it’s just a matter of who will suck less.

The Bulls are sinking a near league worst 94.8 PPG while the Suns are conceding a league worst 116.6 PPG.

Like the Suns at home, but we’ll keep the hard earned in our pockets for this one.

Best Bet = No Bet.

If You Must = Phoenix ML  

Denver @ LA Lakers

H2H Trends –

  • Over is 4-0-1 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.
  • Denver are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles.

 Denver  Under  LA Lakers
 -4.5  222.0  127-109

Denver is flying with 8 wins over their past 11, their last a 146 point effort to take down the Pelicans 146-114.

This Nuggets team has not been good on the road going just 2-4 straight up and 1-5 ATS, but we’ll take them against the Lakers who we wouldn’t tough with a ten foot pole betting wise at the moment.

Best Bet  = Denver -4.5
