Pistons have dropped 8 of their last 10, while the Cavs have dropped 4 of their last 6. Although we have little faith in the Cavs, we have less in Detroit.

The Cavaliers rank third worst in the league in defensive efficiency, go Overs if you are game.

Cavs for the win, line’s too high.

Bucks pulled back a 20 point deficit last night against the 76ers, killing our parlay in the process.

Chicago have won five consecutive meetings at home, including a 108-85 victory on Dec. 11th that ranks as the Celtics’ worst loss of the season. The Celtics then blew them out the 24th Dec to the tune of 117-92.

Celtics to win tonight, that line’s a little high though for us considering the trend.

Another large line in this one, certainly making for a dangerous parlays tonight.

The Grizzlies have lost 13 straight, and heading to AT&T tonight should make it 14. No reason to beat around the bush, Spurs win.

 +10.0  206.5  94-80

The underdog has covered 23 of the last 31 games between the two, and we also think that line’s a little high.

Orlando to cover. Overs also good.

LA just finished sweeping a four-game road trip and overcame a 17-point, second-half deficit in a 116-112 triumph at the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. Meanwhile the Blazers are on a 6 game winning streak.

Portland is riding a 14-game winning streak against the Lakers, including eight straight at Staples.

The slimmest line of the night is the -2.0 for the Trail Blazers, and we’re going to lap it up.

Best Bet  = Portland WIN
