The Say

Detroit are 5th in the league for home court advantage but we can’t deny this will be tough for them. Spurs have lost once in their last 16 games.

Best Bet: San Antonio WIN @1.32.

Feeling Lucky: San Antonio 1-10 @2.38.

The Say

Two teams going in two different directions in form here with New York having a nice 2016. Boston lead the season series 1-0. Tough to split.

Best Bet: Over 190.5 @1.34.

Feeling Lucky: New York 1-10 @2.55.

The Say

Houston lost twice to Memphis back in November when things were going down the toilet bowl for them, although with some good victories recently, have the tide changed? Memphis are another team with a good home record but we aren’t going near this one but up to you.

Best Bet: Nothing sticks out.

Feeling Lucky: Either team within 7.

The Say

A week ago the Bucks lost to the Bulls in the Windy City but a week is a long time for Chicago as they take us all on a ride to great pleasures and terrible defense. You know you have issues when Gasol is telling the team to be more physical. Like Houston, the Bulls are in our George Cantanza black book of terrible decisions.

Best Bet: Milwaukee +10.5 @1.32.

Feeling Lucky: Either team by less than 7 @2.50.

The Say

Unless Minnesota have traded for Lillard or a member of the Lillard family, the wont have a chance against the Thunder

The Say

This game might have a little feeling about it being in Dallas but when you break it down the Cavs have a younger, fitter and better version of all the Mavs players/lineup. Sorry Dirk.

Best Bet: Cleveland WIN @1.40.

Feeling Lucky: Cleveland 11+ @2.85.

The Say

You would be pretty unlucky to have purchased tickets for this game a while back knowing now Kobe and AD are both doubtful. I forgot this was on the fixture. If AD does suit up, the Pelicans are a lock.

Best Bet: New Orleans WIN @1.66

Feeling Lucky: New Orleans 1-10
