The Jazz come in with some revenge for an absolute drubbing they took in San Antonio last time out. Utah has cashed five of six versus San Antonio at Energy Solutions Arena and have cashed 20 of 27 versus Southwest Division rivals. The Spurs are 8-18 ATS as a road underdog of 6 points or less and the Jazz are 11-2 ATS at home off back to back ATS losses. It may be asking a lot for the Spurs to lose again but I will take the home team here.
My NBA picks have been heating up and I have a few more for tonight!
The Kings take on the Nuggets after they played a tough game yesterday against Houston. The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS of late in back-to-back mode.The Kings have covered five straight at the Pepsi Center and the road team is 8-0-1 in the last nine tussles. Playing with revenge and getting the Nuggets in a good spot equals a live dog with the Kings. The Kings also have a sweet system in their favor.
Play On underdogs revenging a blowout loss of 30 points or more, who are well rested team, playing only their 2nd game in five days.
This has been a tremendous wager, with the underdog 26-4 ATS the last five seasons.Finally the Kings are 23-11 ATS after failing to cover two of their last three against the spread over the last two years.Get the points now and take a shot with the Kings.
Spurs / Pacers Over 207.5
This high number is something that Spurs bettors are not used to and the first instinct is to jump on the under. The style of basketball that Indiana pays suggests that exact opposite.
The shoot quick and look for transition an if you look close at the Spurs at home they can score points as well. San Antonio has zipped over in six straight at home and in five of seven against non-conference foes. These two teams always tend to score on the high side. The over is 11-2 in the last dozen duels. Take a flier on the over!
I love Friday nights in the NBA and I hope to keep winning!
The Wizards have been the Knicks whipping boys for the season as the Knicks look to try and sweep the season series against them. This is easier said then done and is the same thing the Cavs were trying to do last night. They failed and so will the Knicks. Take the Wizards to trounce the Knicks and get revenge.
I love a hot NBA team at home on a Friday night.Philadelphia will be looking to extend its season-high five game winning streak and cash its seventh straight. San Antonio has struggled against the 76ers, dropping 13 of 16 spread decisions, including six of eight at the Wachovia Center. The Sixers pull off another big win against a team from the West.
The Thunder have been playing well of late and should win this on the court.Detroit is 5-13 ATS as a favorite of 3.5 to 9.5 and OKC is 17-7 ATS after an ATS win.The lowly Thunder have ‘covered’ four straight, 14 of their last 17 and eight in a row at home. Detroit has dropped eight of its last 11 non-conference outings ATS and 13 of its last 18 against Northwest Division opponents. The Thunder is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 against Eastern foes. The thunder rolls at home tonight.
