MIL -14 @ ORL O/U 215.5
The Bucks have their full roster available minus Brook Lopez. Orlando is still without a bunch of key players including leading scorer Cole Anthony. The Bucks have won both meetings this season. In their last meeting Milwaukee was 13.5 point favorites & won 123-92. Orlando is just 3-10 @ home ATS. We’ll back Milwaukee Minus 14!
PHI -6 @ TOR O/U 215.5 Keep an eye on the status of a few key Raptors as they have been hit heavy by covid. Toronto last 4 games have all gone Over the total. Toronto has at least 10 players out due to covid & 2 listed as DTD due to conditioning from being out on the covid list. We’ll keep an eye up until game time & if nothing changes we’ll take Philly Minus 6!
WAS +6 @ MIA O/U 208.5 What Miami was able to due when their key players were out is find depth in their roster. They will need to lean heavily on that depth with the Wizards coming to town. The Heat have won 5 straight @ home. The Wizards are just 6-13-1 on the road ATS. The teams have split their 2 meetings this season both winning on their home floor. Miami took the meeting in Miami 112-97. We like them to Cover the 6. Miami Minus 6!
NYK -4 @ MIN O/U 211
This is a tricky spot for a Knicks Team fighting to figure out an identity. It’s tricky because Minnesota is without their 3 best players but the Knicks have struggled against inferior rosters at times this season. They were able to get a win on Christmas against a Hawks team that was missing just as many key players as Minnesota. Its something about a fully healthy team only laying 4. Minnesota has won 4 of the last 5 head to head in this series & the last 5 have all gone Under the total. We’ll stay away from this 1!
LAL -5.5 @ HOU O/U 225.5 By now everyone should know how I feel about The Lakers against weaker opponents. LA has won both meetings vs Houston this season but they have failed to cover in both. 7 of the Rockets 10 wins have come in Houston. The Lakers are just 5-17-1 ATS in games they are the favorite. We’ll take Houston Plus 5.5!
CLE -3.5 @ NOP O/U 212.5 Cleveland is expected to get back Evan Mobley but will be without Darius Garland. New Orleans has Brandon Ingram listed as doubtful. If Ingram is unable to go we will back Cleveland Minus 3.5!
DEN +7.5 @ GSW O/U 217.5 With no Draymond Green defensively in the lineup for Golden State. We will Play this game Over 217.5! Keep an eye on late roster moves in this 1 because the line is moving up even after Draymond was ruled out.
OKC +5 @ SAC O/U 224
I don’t see how Sac is favored by 5 in this 1. The Kings laid 5 in their last head to head meeting with OKC & The Thunder won SU 105-103. 3 of the last 5 meetings have gone Under the total with 1 Push. OKC will be without their HC in this 1. We’ll Play it Under 224!
