NYK -7.5 @ DET O/U 214
Detroit has been scoring the basketball lately. 7 out of their last 10 games have gone Over the total. 7.5 is a little heavy for me to lay with this Knicks team though they are playing better. They have Covered 2 straight games. These 2 met last week a 105-91 Knicks win. Detroit still has a lot of key players out due to covid protocol. The Knicks have won & covered 4 straight in this series. We like New York to win the game. Catch them on the ML if you can find value.
CHA +4 @ IND O/U 226.5
Charlotte has won 4 of the last 5 in this series including both meetings this season. The last 3 head to head have all reached Over 226.5 Total Points. We’ll Play this 1 Over 226.5!
LAC +6 @ BOS O/U 210.5
Boston returns home after a quick 2 game road trip. The Celtics loss both games on the road without Jayson Tatum. They return home as 6 point favorites against a Clippers Team decimated with injuries & covid. With a great deal of scoring missing from both lineups we’ll Play this 1 Under 210.5!
LAL +6 @ MEM O/U 226 LeBron James is listed as DTD. We like all Laker games Over that LeBron plays in. Keep an eye on his status. These 2 have split their 2 meetings this season. Memphis beat the Lakers by 13 earlier this month. LA won back to in October 121-118. I can’t see Memphis laying 5 if LeBron plays although the Sharps, Money & Systems say otherwise & fade Memphis @ home Minus 6. If I don’t Play the Lakers I won’t touch it.
ATL +8 @ CHI O/U 227
These 2 played 2 days ago. Chicago laid 3.5 & won 130-118. Trae Young was back for Atlanta in that 1. This go round Atlanta will be without Bogdanovic, Gallinari & Hunter in this rematch. We like the Bulls in this matchup as well as Atlanta is down a lot of star power on the road. Take Chicago Minus 8!
OKC +14.5 @ PHX O/U 219 Not sure why the lack of respect for OKC ATS is constantly on display? The Thunder are 7-3 ATS in their last 10. 21-12 ATS on the season 10-6 ATS on the road & 20-11 ATS as the Dawg! Phoenix won 113-101 6 days ago. Phoenix was favored by 15 in that 1. We will fade OKC Plus 14.5!
UTA -7 @ POR O/U 228
Utah smoked Portland boots in Utah 129-107 last month. Portland is a better team @ home & Utah will be without Spider Mitchell in this 1. The Under looks like the Best play in this spot. If we play this game it’ll be on the Under 228!
DAL -2.5 @ SAC O/U 220.5
Dallas has been surprisingly good in spite of all the missing pieces in & out of the lineup. They have also been scoring @ a good clip especially in their last 2. Sac Sacramento has been playing Over basketball as well. We’ll Play this 1 Over 220.5!
