 New Orleans  Under  New Orleans
 +2.0  222.5  101-96

The Pelicans have won 7 of their last 10, with the Hornets 6 and 4 over the same stretch.

Like Boogie and Davis to bully Dwight and get the W as dogs. Unders also look good.

Best Bet  =  New Orleans WIN  and Under 222.5 

Utah @ Detroit

 +2.5  200.5  98-95 OT

The Pistons have dropped their last 5 while the Jazz have lost 7 of their last 10. The winner of this one will gain some much needed confidence.

Both teams play slow tempo so the Unders is the bet.

Utah took the two meetings last season by an average of 23.5 points. Don’t read too much into that, but we will take them for the W.

Best Bet = Under 200.5 

Phoenix @ Indiana

Phoenix are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Indiana.

 Indiana  Over  Indiana
 -7.5  216.5  116-101

Suns have dropped 7 of their last 10, Pacers are 6-4 over that stretch.

A win over the Spurs last out would have given the Spurs some swag and they should get over the Suns tonight who are relying solely on our main man, Devon Booker.

Best Bet  = Indiana WIN  

Chicago @ Philadelphia

H2H Trends – 

Over is 10-2 in the last 12 meetings.
Chicago are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
Chicago are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia.

 -5.5  218.5  115-101

Philly had 24 turnovers last out in a loss to Memphis, but should take care of the ball enough at home tonight to dispose of the Bulls, who give us no confidence away from United Center.

Best Bet  = Philadelphia WIN 

Toronto @ Atlanta

Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Atlanta.
Toronto are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings.

 +6.0  215.0  108-93

The Raptors, 17-3 at home, will play 10 of 13 in Air Canada Center beginning with Friday’s matchup against Utah, and they hope to head to Toronto in form.

Under is 4-0 in Hawks last 4 home games.

That line’s a little high though. Unders the best play.

Best Bet = Atlanta +6.0  and Under 215.0

Houston @ Dallas

Under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
Houston are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Houston are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Dallas.

The Spurs took care of the Cavs last night 114-102 although on a B2B tonight we don’t have a whole lot of confidence that they can back it up against a Grizzlies team in decent form.

Grizzlies are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 at home.

Best Bet  = NO BET

Best Bet  =  Memphis +3.5

Minnesota @ Portland

The T-Wolves further instilled our confidence in them with a 126-118 win over the in-form Clippers.

Risky game, but would favor Minnesota at the +3.5.

We’ll wait for the Over/Under line.

Best Bet = Over 210.0 or Minnesota +3.5

Boston @ LA Clippers

Boston are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Under is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings in Los Angeles.

 +1.5  217.0  113-102

Boston have lost 4 straight, with their last 2 coming at the hands of the Lakers and Magic, not a good sign coming into tonight.

We’ll take the Clippers, and may the NBA betting gods be with us, if there are any.

Best Bet  = LA Clippers +1.5 Boston
