 Orlando  Over  Orlando
 -5.0  210.5  107-100

Both the Magic and Grizzlies are on the 2nd of a B2B, with the Grizzlies on a 12 game losing streak. Could be close, but Orlando at home sway us, especially with Tyreke Evans likely still sitting.

The Grizzlies rank 19th in defensive efficiency and the Magic rank 27th. Watch for the Overs.

Best Bet  = NO BET

If you must = Orlando WIN  

Denver @ Cleveland

H2H Trends – 

Denver are 2-5-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

 Cleveland  Under  Denver
 -5.0  228.0  126-117

This is the 2nd of a road B2B for the Nuggets.

These two rank in the top six in offensive efficiency and the bottom third of the league in defensive efficiency. However with Coach Lue stating that “It’s not fair to those guys that, you know, maybe we should slow down offensively”, maybe we’ll take the Unders of a high Total Line.

Cavs for the W.

Best Bet  =  Cleveland WIN   and Under 228.0

Detroit @ Miami

Over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

 Miami  Under  Miami
 -5.5  205.0  105-96

This is the 2nd of a B2B on the road for the Pistons. Miami have dropped seven of their last ten and are three games ahead of Detroit for the final playoff spot in the East. Urgency is required.

Miami is a solid bet here.

Best Bet = Miami WIN and Miami -5.5 

Boston @ Houston

Picks against the spread

 Spread O/U Points   Result
 Boston  Under  Houston
 +8.5  216.5  123-120

Boston have won four straight games and trail Toronto by a half-game for the top spot in the East.

The Rockets are cruising on a 14-game winning streak and are a threat to Golden State in the Western Conference.

Boston lead the league in defensive efficiency, which should make for a great battle against a Houston who rank second in offensive efficiency.

Gotta go with the hot hand. Rockets. Line’s too high though.

Best Bet  = Houston WIN  

LA Lakers @ San Antonio

H2H Trends – 

Over is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
Under is 20-9 in the last 29 meetings in San Antonio.

Win/Loss

Picks against the spread

 Spread O/U Points   Result
 LA Lakers  Under  LA Lakers
 +4.5  218.5  116-112

The Lakers have won 4 straight, and should have some swag after dismantling the Heat last out in a 131-113 rout.

Pau Gasol and Aldridge are doubtful, while Kawhi still sits with a quad injury for the Spurs.

If Pau and Aldridge sit, take the Lakers at the line.

Otherwise, stay away.

Best Bet  = NO BET  

If you must  = Lakers +4.5  

Oklahoma City @ Portland

H2H Trends – 

OKC are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
OKC are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Portland.

 Portland  Over  Portland
 -4.0  213.5  108-100

Portland have won 5 straight, while OKC has won 4 of their last 5, so both in decent form.

Portland has won both meetings withOKC this season and one of those victories came without All-Star guard Damian Lillard.

Take Portland, with the Overs good also.

Best Bet  = Portland WIN   and Over 213.5

Smart money is on the Jazz. Unless you know something we don’t take the Jazz straight up.
