Happy Saturday. We have a big slate of games with eleven today. There are more important sporting events than the NBA regular season today, and it doesn’t pain me to say that. Go Blue. So let’s just run through some plays for today and leave it there.
NBA record: 20-9 ATS (3-2 Underdog ML), 3-4-1 O/U
- Jazz -3.5
Utah is the better team regardless, and this will be Chicago’s first game without Patrick Williams. The Bulls have shown a lot of promising things so far (and the Jazz do need to lose at some point), but this is a small enough line that it shouldn’t be passed up. Gobert should feast.
- Wizards -2
Why not? Washington is rolling, including a 9-point win over the Celtics the other day. They also got a key game against the Hawks (11-point win) in between to get out of the back-to-back blues that tend to come with playing the same team twice in a row. I like the Wizards.
- Pistons Magic O 207
This is a very low total. Both teams have started to score a bit more in recent games. The Magic have played just one game that wouldn’t have covered this number, and the Pistons would have seen it covered two games in a row. Cade Cunningham’s return should help too. I think we get enough here.
- Heat +113
The Heat have been dominant so far. They’re traveling to Memphis on a back-to-back, but you have to ride the hot hand as the underdog here. Good value.
- Cavs +10
The Suns shouldn’t be getting -10 lines against anyone right now.
