We don’t have any big games tonight, but few pretty nice bets.
Denver Nuggets – Minnesota Timberwolves
Minny average for this game is 96.5 points, so we got a full point advantage. On top of that, Minny scored 100+ points against Denver in both wins this season, but only 94 in the only loss.
I believe that this is a huge revenge game for the Nuggets and I’m sure they will pile the pressure on defense as well. They failed to reach this number since Pekovic got hurt and I just think this team is a mess right now.
Minnesota Under 97.5 points, 1.91 odds – 6 units play – WillHill/ 5Dimes
Atlanta Hawks – New Jersey Nets
I will continue to try and bet the Under in Atlanta games. Their schedule is absolutely brutal and they had to make yet another flight to get back home and still without any big rest.
Nets in direct battle with the Hawks for the 2 – 7 spots in the East and also JJ coming back to Atlanta, place where he had many fine moments.
There are trends going both ways and the stats give here 189 points as well.
I think that with everything so equal, the fact that this is a kind of a playoff game and rest problems for both teams, should make it a low scoring game.
91 – 87 is my projected score here.
Under 189 points, 2.00 odds – 7 units play – Pinnacle
Phoenix Suns – Houston Rockets
Not an easy bet, but just looking at the rosters, you realize that if there will be few games that Suns team will be up for, those will be against the Lakers and 4 games against the Rockets.
Scola, Dragic, Morris – all played last season or even this season (Morris) for Houston and left.
Phoenix are a big mess right now, but this is the type of game they wouldn’t want to be embarrassed.
Phoenix Over 102 points, 1.91 odds – 3 units play – 5Dimes
Phoenix +7, 1.98 odds – 3 units play – 188bet
Best of luck everybody!!!
