The Bulls host Dallas tonight. While Dallas has been pretty bad against the spread in the Doncic era, this year they have been a little more consistent. However, the Bulls are a nightmare matchup for Dallas as they play the same style, just with a much deeper and more talented roster. This number should be closer to 5 in my eyes.
NY has the edge here in just about every statistical category that matters. -135 to -140 is a small price to pay for a matchup that is much more lopsided than that number indicates. Easy win last night with the Bulls, let’s do it again tonight!
The Knicks have been struggling a bit of late. Tonight look for them to get back on track. Coach Thibs is one of the best regular season coaches in the NBA. He has always been adept at getting bench players to produce. This should be an easy win for NY.
LA gets their first test since acquiring OBJ, and it has all the makings for quite the coming out party. The 49ers have been very bad in Santa Clara this year overall. McVay had an extra day to prepare, generally that means a lot of trouble for opposing defenses. This number should be closer to 5 or 6, laying 3.5 is an easy call. If you can buy the hook at odds under -125, I would do so. Big win yesterday on Bulls +3.5, let’s do it again yall!
Chicago continues to be disrespected by bookmakers. While I do feel this line is flat out wrong and Chicago will take this game outright (same deal as our GSW winner yesterday), having a point and a half in your pocket is always a good thing against the buzzer-beater king- Damian Lillard. Let’s keep winning!
New England has found themselves as identity—defense. They are in the conversation for the best defense in the league. Mac Jones is getting better every week. Don’t overthink this one, lay the 6.5 and cash a ticket.
The Pacers are playing their best basketball of them season. After a blowout win in Chicago, they head home to face an under-manned Lakers team. Since being challenged publicly by their coach after a slow start, Indiana has really responded. I think they cover this number relatively easily.
Look for the Bulls to get a much needed blowout victory against Orlando tonight. After a tough stretch losing to the likes of Houston, the Bulls will take advantage of some blood in the water and handle their business. 9.5 is a friendly number given the matchup, love this position.
Jokic likely not returning quite yet, the Heat host a Denver team on a big time skid. Last time these two teams played was the Morris Vs Jokic drama, so sprinkle some extra motivation on top of a team that plays outstanding at home and you have yourself a strong position.
