16-0. They did it, and ruined the last leg of my own multi (Lakers +25 points) in the process. Little did I know the Lakers would be down at the first break by 19. Warriors are just that good, and the Lakers are just. that. bad.

But forget all that, because at Air Canada Centre, it’s………DRAKE NIGHT!

We watched the Wizards get run over by the rampaging Paul George and the Pacers yesterday 123-106. Paul George scored 40 points with seven 3’s. It’s a tough one, but with a days rest and at home, we really can’t go past the Hornets here. Nicolas Batum has been a welcome addition since arriving from Portland, averaging 16.9 ppg, 4.1 apg, 6.1 rpg.

The Best Bet : Charlotte WIN @1.66. 

Feeling Lucky : Charlotte 1-10 @2.47. There won’t be much in it.

The Knicks were always going to struggle against the Heat after winning 4 in a row. They spent their stamina tickets against the Thunder and Rockets previously and couldn’t get their groove on early in the game. Porzingis double-doubled which is becoming more a common thing than rare. Still on the road, a win against a lower ranked Eastern Conference opponent would be what they need while hunting that playoff spot. As mentioned in previously, the Magic have been exciting at times this year but are one superstar off making an impact.

The Best Bet : New York WIN @ 2.03 – We are really liking the Knicks this year in these Eastern Conf match ups, good odds considering the form.

Feeling Lucky : Either team to win +11 @ 5.00 – Almost the same odds as the 76ers to defeat Boston in Boston.

There isn’t much more we can say about the 76ers. If only they could play the Washington Generals which would still be close. Boston on the other hand have lossed 3 out of the last 4 games and like Detroit are letting all their good work they did at the start of the year slink away into the air like ether. The Celtics have already beaten the 76ers twice this year convincingly so dont epect anything different at The Garden.

The Best Bet : Boston WIN @ 1.14 – A win is a sure thing for the Celtics.

Feeling Lucky : Boston -10.5 @ 1.91 – This is good enough to be The Best Bet – up to you.

19 Detroit 96.4 97.4 -1.0

The Pistons are slumping a little after their impressive start, a win at home to the Heat is exactly what is on the order to get back on track. The early good form had them well placed for a post season birth, however, the Hornets and Porzingis are changing the script and providing competition for those playoff spots. Miami are coming off a good win against the Knicks at home and will look to continue the good form against the Pistons. Although they are yet to travel away from home much this season, expect Bosh and Whiteside to give Drummond some trouble down low, although, the Heat’s offense still needs some work.

The Best Bet : Miami -1 @1.91 

Feeling Lucky : The Best Bet is lucky enough for us here.

3 Cleveland 104.9 97.1 +7.8

 

This will be the Cavs biggest test with their injury plagued line up that is still good enough to be the second seed. The Raptors aren’t performing that bad either even with Valanciunis out for 6 weeks. Scola and Biyombo, yep I said it, are filling in the gaps and will match up well against Thompson. Last time they met in Toronto, the Raps got the W.

The Best Bet : Too close to call to be confident in a multi with some of the other favourites today.

Feeling Lucky : Toronto 1-10 @ 2.78 – Raptors have only played 4 times at home – its Drake Night!

Marcus Says:

I don’t even know where to start with this game, the Rockets have been the most disappointing team this year for their fans and our predictions. There were whispers early on that the Grizzlies haven’t evolved with the ‘small ball’ style of arsenal and the only move they have made is securing Chalmers in a trade with Miami. Memphis have moved on since their 50 point loss to the Warriors and have won 5 out of the last 6 including one against the Rockets at home. Is there some correlation between winning and Z-Bo being injured? This will be hard to split as we aren’t sure which version of both teams will show up. D-12 and Beverley back may get the vote on home court.

The Best Bet : Look elsewhere – So.me key players aren’t 100% healthy and Memphis are coming off a good win yesterday against the Mavs where their starters played some solid minutes.

Feeling Lucky : Rockets -2.5 @ 1.91 – Home court, that’s all I’ve got.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Ronan Says:

Dwight Howard returns (yet again), but he was part of the rockets team that lost 96-84 to the grizzlies less than a week ago. In that game, Howard shot an amazing 80% on a less than amazing 5 attempts. The only hope for the rockets is that the returning Patrick Beverley plays some D on Mike Conley.. or at least gives harden a few pointers.

The Best Bet:  Memphis @$2.19. Ive been burnt too many times by the Rockets already this season.

Feeling Lucky:  Memphis (+2.5) & under 196.5 @$3.78

Marcus Says:

Feels like this road trip has gone forever for the Kings. Coming off a tough loss to the Hornets in OT, we saw the Rondo of old with a 20 assist game. The Bucks had a good win against the Pistons which Greg Monroe would of been chuffed about, although, he will have his hand full again with DeMarcus Cousins. This will be a tough one to split with a lot of good match ups at all positions.

The Best Bet : Sacramento +5.5 @ 1.91 – The Kings have had a lot of narrow losses on this road trip.

Feeling Lucky : Sacramento WIN @ 2.88 – Could they steal a victory before heading home for Thanksgiving?

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Ronan Says:

The Kings are coming off a heartbreaking overtime loss to Charlotte, where they blew a 22 point second half lead. The bad news is that Rondo had 20 assists, Rudy Gay had a season high 28 points, Boogie had 30 and 11…and they still lost. 

The Best Bet: Bucks WIN @$1.44.

Feeling Lucky: All depends on how Boogie’s strained back is feeling.

Andrew Wiggins was less that a year old when KG made his debut for the Twolves back in 1995. Wiggins is averaging 26.1 ppg while shooting 48% over his last 9 games. Garnett may not be the same player that he was when he guided the Timberwolves to 8 straight playoff appearances, but it’s rare to find heart and soul like his. Back at home, with a day’s rest, the Wolves will get over the line by a slim margin.

The Best Bet : Minnesota 1-10 @2.48.

Feeling Lucky : Nope.

Durant and Westbrook are back together again and are back to their winning ways. They quickly made us remember how good the Thunder can be when healthy. The Jazz found that out the hard way. Brooklyn got some pay back against Boston but simple outcome here, a win for Oklahoma.

The Best Bet : Oklahoma -9.5 @ 1.53 – wouldn’t want to cost a multi on being over ambitious.

Feeling Lucky : Oklahoma -15.5 @ 2.44 – lets be ambitious

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Ronan Says:

I’m scared for any defense that has to put up with KD and Westbrook, especially if Joe Johnson is lining up on one and a rookie (Hollis-Jefferson) on another.

The Best Bet: OKC (-6.5) @$1.41. Should do it easy.

Feeling Lucky: Russell Westbrook first basket @$4.40.

Marcus Says:

The Texas rivals meet for the first time this season with their new line-ups. Both teams are currently sitting in the home court advantage area of the Western Conference, more luck there for Dallas as some other WC teams have under performed. Spurs are going to war with the ‘twin towers’ game plan to trouble Dirk and co at the post while it will be battle of the veteran PGs in Parker and Williams. The Mavs are coming off a loss to Memphis last night while the Spurs are undefeated at home.

The Best Bet : San Antonio WIN @ – fresh after a days rest, should be a fundamental win against the weary Mavs.

Feeling Lucky : San Antonio +11 @ – Mavs have lost 5 out of 6 times by +11 points.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Ronan Says:

The ungenerous Spurs are only letting in 85 points against them at home this season. LaMarcus is questionable with a sprained ankle but expect future MVP Kawhi Leonard to step up again.

The Best Bet: Spurs/Spurs @$1.43.

Feeling Lucky: Spurs (-11.5) @$2.13. Mavs have lost their last nine regular season games at AT&T Centre by an average of 15.2 points.

OK, so the Pelicans have won a couple, big deal right? Well, they did beat the the Spurs, and the Suns 122-116 in the first of the back to backs. Surely the Pelicans are the best bet? Wrong. Winning 3 out of their last 10 doesn’t give us enough leverage to think they’ll beat the Suns at home. With an 0-7 record on the road, there is just no value there.

The Best Bet : Phoenix WIN @1.50.

Feeling Lucky : We aren’t that confident to get lucky.

16 LA Clippers 103.6 103.8 -0.2

After starting the season 4-0, the Clippers haven’t looked like a contender, which is not transferable to the talent on their roster. The Clippers have won their last 13 over the Jazz, and after seeing the Jazz disappoint us last night against OKC, we are more than confident of a Clippers W. The talent of Griffin , CP3, DeAndre Jordan, and Jamal Crawford is enough to make anybody cream themselves, and tomorrow is the day they get back on track, with a 10+ WIN.

The Best Bet : LA Clippers WIN @1.47

Feeling Lucky :  First Basket/WIN – Blake Griffin / LA Clippers @6.95. Blake to clean up a Chris Paul wild layup attempt.
