Two plays that I like a lot today and therefore made them big plays, despite being right after ASG game and very close to trade deadline.
Houston Rockets – Oklahoma City Thunder
It’s really a no brainer for me. Thunder off a loss been very nice money maker this season and this time, they after two losses, playing a team they should dominate easily. Who will guard Durant? Who will guard Westbrook?
Durant just had 30 points in ASG that was held in Houston.
Harden against his old buddies is always a nice touch, but Thunder should really roll in this one.
Martin doesn’t like McHale and will be trying to make a point, Thunder have Spurs ahead of them and Heat toe to toe with them, for the battles of the West and of the league overall – Thunder should roll and get the W.
To add to that, Thunder won’t do any major trades for sure, so at least we should be safe from that.
Thunder -3, 1.96 odds – 8 units play – Pinnacle
Atlanta Hawks – Miami Heat
I realize that Heat are smoking hot on offense right now.
But, looking at H2H, teams met 10 times since LeBron came to Miami and the score didn’t reach today’s total even once.
But, we have seen this total this season already, with Miami playing in Atlanta, with the same line even.
The result? Under with 185 points only.
H2H wise, 6 – 0 in favor of the Under when total set between the teams is 190+ points.
All in all, this is a good bet without a doubt.
Under 197.5 points, 1.91 odds – 7 units play – Unibet (or Under 197.5 for down to 1.90+ for most bookies)
Best of luck everybody!!!
