The Say

Orlando have only won 1 game in the month of January and was once in playoff contention but are looking at hitting the lottery.. AGAIN. This post Dwight rebuild is taking its time. Boston have won 4 in a row and are half a game from 4th position in the East. These teams will have the next 8 quarters against each other as it’s the first leg of a double header.

Best Bet: Boston WIN @1.26.

Feeling Lucky: Boston -7.5 @1.80.

The Say

After winning against Phoenix and Minnesota, you can hardly say the Cavaliers have hit their form. There is still some scarring from the Warriors match visible. Detroit won this matchup earlier in the season and with the underdog tag, could upset again. Especially at the Palace.

Best Bet: Detroit +10.5 @1.41.

Feeling Lucky: Detroit WIN @2.58.

The Say

The Suns are on a severe decline since Bledsoe and Knight have been out with only one to return this season. The Knicks are looking to regain Carmelo Anthony for the game, should be enough for the win at home.

Best Bet: New York WIN @1.33.

Feeling Lucky: New York -9.5 @2.00.

-7.5 +14 221.5 221.5 116-108

The Say

James Harden gets to visit memory lane with a return to Oklahoma. These contests are usually spiteful after the Westbrook/Beverley incident and just the general niggle between Adams and Dwight. We expect it to not be a Spurs like blowout for the Rockets.

Best Bet: Houston +14.5 @1.40.

Feeling Lucky: Oklahoma -7.5 @1.81.

The Say

The Heat are starting to regain their team from injury with Dragic expected to return. They had a very poor showing against the Bucks last week so know what is needed to be done – which is score. Miami can’t be trusted though, maybe skip this.

Best Bet: Miami +7.5 @1.39.

Feeling Lucky: Either team by less than 7 @2.34.

Mavericks at home against the poor teams is their ideal matchup. Although, let’s hope Carlisle doesn’t rest some of the starters.

The Say

Minnesota have been playing better as of late with some great performances from Zach LaVine. Add in the talent of Wiggins and Towns, this game should be closer than expected. Utah were able to get one back against the Hornets. Will need to bring the offense to outshoot the Wolves.

Best Bet: Minnesota +13.5 @1.35.

Feeling Lucky: Minnesota +10.5 @1.56.

The Say

After missing Team USA and the All-Star game, Lillard will be looking for blood. Charlotte ran out of gas after all the Overtime games recently. Kemba v Lillard shootout?

This game will be over by the first. At this tanking rate, the Lakers will have the best odds for the Ben Simmons lottery. Will be another practice run for the Clippers.
