Yesterday we had amazing bad luck, but today I hope and believe that it won’t be the case. Three small bets on a card that is pretty tight today.
San Antonio Spurs – New Orleans Hornets
Spurs finally healthy and after losing 4 of the last 5 games, I fully expect them to show up today and show up big time.
Hornets look really poorly right now and I believe that the last thing they would want right now is to play a good team with a chip on their shoulder.
Manu will add offense, Jackson defense and all in all, Spurs should score around 110 points, while Hornets won’t reach 100 points I believe.
112 – 91 sounds about right here.
Spurs -13.5, 1.96 odds – 5 units play – Pinnacle
Detroit Pistons – Washington Wizards
Wizards are horrible first quarter team on the road, losing in average by 6 points.Detroit at home really good first quarter team, usually leading after first quarter by average of 2 points.
I expect Detroit to start strong, especially when Frank does great effort trying to improve the struggling Pistons.
26 – 20 sounds about right after 1 quarter.
Pistons -2 after 1st quarter -1.90 odds – 5 units play – 5Dimes
Boston + New York to win
Boston lost at home to Milwaukee once this season already and trails 1 – 2 in H2H meeting overall this season. On top of that, they also behind the Bucks by one game in the Eastern Conference, so this game gets greater meaning for them.
Boston better team that I believe will try to step it up in the next few games, starting tonight.
Chicago are a difficult rival, but Knicks are in great shape, play at home and eager to revenge the loss they suffered in Chicago earlier this season.
With Rose and Rip out for a long time now, we can see that Bulls struggle mightly on the road, facing good teams.
The fact that Gibson will play injured, means that their very short bench can be even less productive tonight.
Knicks should really get things rolling on them tonight.
Knicks + Boston to win, 2.07 odds – 7 units play – 5Dimes
