The NBA is in full stride and we have another massive 9 game slate tonight. Here is a short and sweet guide to help you dominate the night.
Celtics @ Hornets +1.5 (223.5): Both of these teams are coming off yesterday as they cap off their back to back tonight. The Hornets are coming off a massive win against the Nets while the Celtics finally got their first win against a poor Rockets team. I expect this to be a great game and clearly Vegas does too (-1.5). This line is spot on. But with that being said, there is a definite play I love in this game. Take the over 223.5. Both teams are on the second leg of a back to back, the game will be close, and both of these teams have done nothing but score.
Pistons @ Hawks -11.5 (212.5): The Pistons are very very bad and are still without #1 pick Cade Cunningham. Meanwhile the Hawks are coming off an embarrassing loss to a bad Cavs team. The Hawks are a great basketball team. I know, I know, I know.. The public is on the Hawks – but so is the money (65% bets, 85% of money). Take the Hawks -11.5. This will be over by halftime.
Wizards @ Nets -6.5 (228.5): In my opinion, the Nets are in trouble.. when it comes to being a major contender. With that being said, the Nets will roll tonight. Coming off a disappointing loss yesterday, they will rebound tonight. The Wizards are a pesky team that will compete but the nets pull away late. This is a smash spot for the nets as they are only receiving 40% of bets and yet hold 70% of the money. Are you kidding me? Fade the public and get to back the nets? Take the Nets -6.5
Bulls @ Raptors +1.5 (212): I want to take the Raptors so bad. The line screams take the Raptors, and I will probably end up taking the Raptors, I will not tell you to. I have a better spot. Take the under 212. The Bulls are talented but are still figuring things out, and the raptors have looked great on defense this far. Very little points in this one.
Magic @ Heat -13 (211): This one is easy for me and it is a system play. The youthful Magic are off a huge road win at the Garden yesterday, and now have to make the trip to a hostile Miami group. The Heat are the real deal. That is a great ball club. In their last home game they blew out the defending champs. Take the Heat -13. The Magic are in a letdown spot and the Heat are off a loss. Dont think, just hit. (Also – Heat 53% bets but 71% of money)
Pelicans @ Timberwolves -5.5 (225.5): I am fully bought in on the Wolves being a playoff team this year. (If healthy) Which they are right now. These teams played each other 2 days ago and scored a lousy 185 points together. Vegas is not fooled and neither am I. Take the Over 225.5. This will be a fast paced up and down game with plenty of opportunities for points.
All of these are 1 unit plays, bet responsibly.
Also, parlay them all I am going 6-0.
