Very short on time, so I will be very brief.
Miami Heat – LA Lakers
Lakers and Miami have great results in first half, much better than in second half and I will try and check them for the Over in first half here.
Both teams usually like to try and run as much as they can in first half and then go out and take care of business in the second half.
Over 103 points in 1st half, 1.90 odds – 5 units play – SBOBet
Orlando Magic – Portland Traiblazers
My number for this game is 191.5 points, so I will just trust the number here.
I see no reason what so ever why one of the teams will be looking to speed the game.
Portland needs to win lottery teams like Magic if they want to reach the playoffs and they are not run and gun team, while Magic got too many points on their head recently and should just try to put a nice defensive effort.
Under 196.5, 1.91 odds – 6 units play – PaddyPower/ Bwin
Brooklyn Nets – SA Spurs
Spurs without Manu and Timmy get the same line in Brooklyn as Miami got with all players healthy?
I can’t agree with that.
It’s true that Spurs are amazing on the road and overall and they can win here, but without their two stars, they won’t win too many games in such spots.
Brooklyn, despite losing the last two home games to Heat and Lakers, have a really great home record with the new coach and I believe they won’t lose third in a row.
Brooklyn to win, 2.10 odds – 5 units play – Pinnacle
Phoenix Suns – Oklahoma City Thunder
This is B2B game between the two teams and I believe that Thunder can’t be that motivated to blow away a team that they just won easily a day a go.
On the other hand, Thunder have a huge game against Heat on Thursday, a rematch of last year’s NBA Finals.
I believe that going against the Thunder here and against Utah, can be a very good idea.
Suns +9, 1.93 odds – 6 units play – Pinnacle
Minnesota +3.5, 1.91 odds – 8 units play – WillHill
Best of luck everybody!!!
