Many great games tonight ahead of us and plenty of great bets as well.
Boston Celtics – Miami Heat
My number for this game is 94.5, so we got two points advantage over the total given. On top of that, Heat are 11 – 0 and counting in favor of the Under as far as their team totals go, in second leg of B2B games, like today’s game.
Even in their amazing winning streak, they still went 5 – 0 in favor of the Under in such spots.
One thing is clear and that is Boston will want nothing more than to be the ones that end Heat’s winning streak and the icing on the cake is that if they win today, they will stop the Heat, before they are in the second place of all time alone (now they are tied to the Rockets).
I’m not sure if Boston can do that, but I do know that I expect both teams to bring their “A” effort on defense, especially after Boston won Miami the last time teams met.
I expect Heat to score 89 – 91 points here.
Heat Under 97, 1.91 odds – 7 units play – 5Dimes
Detroit Pistons – Brooklyn Nets
It’s hard to explain, how Nets, that had 4 days of rest prior to the Hawks game, managed to unravel in the second half. First half means rust and that is something that many teams coming off a long rest suffer, but second half?
Anyway, with the East being so close that only 3.5 games separate the second place from the seventh place, Nets just can’t afford losing two games in 24 hours, both as favorites.
Nets struggled against the Pistons, but managed to win both. 3.5 points make me a bit uncomfortable, but overall, I believe that Nets should win this one and hopefully, they will cover this very short line as well.
Nets -3.5, 1.95 odds – 6 units play – Pinnacle
Charlotte Bobcats – Washington Wizards
Wizards are 6 – 24 on the road in favor of the Under. Teams met this season in Charlotte already and the result was 168 points only. Teams average 188 points, so 2 points advantage over the total given.
All in all, I doubt that Cats will get to 95 points or Wizards to 100 points. I can see it as 94 – 89 type of game with 182 – 185 points scored.
Under 190 points, 1.91 odds – 7 units play – 12Bet
Also one parlay:
Indiana + Nets + Lakers to win, 3.70 odds – 4 units play – Pinnacle
Best of luck everybody!!!
