We got one heck of a game tonight in New York and I think a decent bet on it as well and another game that maybe not that shiny, but offers a bet with decent value as well.
New York Knicks –Los Angeles Lakers
Lakers are a mess right now, without a doubt. With Gasol and Nash out,Kobeand Dwight just not enough and the bench, with all the injuries is just garbage.
Having said all that, I can’t agree that the line is correct tonight.
Brewer can guardKobe, but that’s about it. Smith (that is questionable), Kidd, Felton and Prigioni can’t guard him at all.
Dwight will have his hands full against Tyson, but it’s hard not to feel that Lakers match up pretty well against the Knicks.
On top of that, I do believe that Artest, Jamison and Meeks are “due” for a decent game. Knicks will give them their chances and it will be up to them to see if they can take them.
Lakers should score 104 – 107 points tonight I believe.
Lakers Over 100 points, 1.91 odds – 7 units play – 5Dimes
Atlanta Hawks –Charlotte Bobcats
Hawks really bad as big favorites with 0 – 4 ATS record. They also have a terrible ATS record at home with 2 covers only. On top of that, they got a small look ahead, playing GSW on Saturday – the same GSW that won the Heat that won the Hawks this week.
Hawks usually having problems rising for such games and I don’t see any reason for that to change.
Hawks can beat Cats by 30 points, but more likely that either Hawks start slowly and will need to make a comeback in the second half or allow a back door cover as they almost did tonight againstOrlando.
