NUGGETS @ SPURS
The Nuggets came into this series with home court advantage and a far better regular season record. They matched up against a Spurs team with more playoff experience, and a head coach that has won multiple championships. Heading to San Antonio with the series tied 1-1 is a bit of a nightmare for the Nuggets. It's going to be hard to win games at San Antonio, where the Spurs boast one of the best records in the NBA. In fact the only team in the West with more home wins than the Spurs was Denver. The Spurs are 4-0 straight up in their last four home games against Denver, and the Nuggets have failed to cover in five of their last seven at San Antonio.
|04-16-19||Thunder v. Blazers -111||94-114||Win||100||4 h 19 m||Show|
THUNDER @ BLAZERS
The public loves the Thunder in this series, and because of that the Blazers are just a small favorite at home. They won Game 1 without too much trouble by a score of 104-99, although it didn't feel like a game decided by just five points. Portland lead by 14 after the first quarter and held the lead for the rest of the way. The Thunder are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings in Portland, and they are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games. It's going to be tough for the Thunder to draw even in this series with a banged up Paul George playing on the road againstg one of the league's top home teams. Portland is 33-9 at home this season.
|04-13-19||Magic v. Raptors -8.5||104-101||Loss||-120||4 h 48 m||Show|
ORLANDO @ TORONTO
The Raptors finished with the second best record in the NBA during the regular season, while Orlando clinched a playoff spot in their second to last game of the regular season. The Magic were just 17-24 on the road, while Toronto was 32-9 at home. There are going to be some surprises in the playoffs, but I don't think we will see any surprises in this series. Kawhi Leonard ranks 3rd in the NBA in win shares, behind only Jordan and LeBron. He's known to elevate his game in the post-season, and that's bad news for Orlando. I wouldn't be surprised if Toronto blows the doors off early in Game 1.
|04-05-19||Heat v. Wolves UNDER 218.5||109-111||Loss||-108||9 h 36 m||Show|
HEAT @ WOLVES
The Miami Heat trail Orlando by just a half a game in the Southeast with just a handful of games remaining for both teams. While Orlando has a home game against the sub .500 Hawks tonight, the Heat will need to win on the road at Minnesota. The Heat are actually one of the better road teams in the NBA, with a record of 20-18 away from home. Only Toronto and Milwaukee have more road wins than Miami. The Heat have covered in six straight at Minnesota, and they have gone under in seven of their last nine in the Twin Cities. The under is 7-3 in the Timberwolves last 10 overall.
|04-05-19||Hawks v. Magic -8.5||113-149||Win||100||16 h 3 m||Show|
HAWKS @ MAGIC
The Orlando Magic are a half game up on the Miami Heat in the Southeast Division, and they will need a win at home tonight against the Hawks to avoid falling out of first place. The Hawks have earned a handful of "feel good" wins lately, and some of those have come against some pretty decent teams. This game at Orlando is a little different though, as it might as well be a playoff game for the Magic. The Hawks have failed to cover in four of their last five at Orlando, and they are just 12-27 overall on the road this season. The Magic are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games, and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 overall.
|04-03-19||Knicks v. Magic -12||100-114||Win||100||18 h 49 m||Show|
KNICKS @ MAGIC
With just a few games left in the regular season, teams like New York are giving their prospects a chance to play. The results are often a failure to compete with teams stacked with bonafied NBA starters. New York has lost 14 of their last 16 overall, and 10 of those 14 losses came by double digits. They face an Orlando Magic team tonight that needs to win this game if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Magic will likely crank up the intensity in a must win game, and we should see a blowout. The Magic have won seven straight home games, most recently winning by 21 points versus Philly.
|03-27-19||Pacers v. Thunder -6||99-107||Win||100||19 h 44 m||Show|
PACERS @ THUNDER
The Oklahoma City Thunder snapped a four game losing streak with a big road win at Toronto, but went on to lose at Memphis in their next game. Now they return home to face the Pacers, and this is a crucial game for the home team. The Thunder are just a half game up on the Spurs for eighth place in the West, and a first round matchup versus Golden State is the prize for finishing in the eighth spot. The Pacers have failed to cover in seven of their last eight road games, and they are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven at Oklahoma City.
|03-15-19||Bucks v. Heat UNDER 220||Top||113-98||Win||100||24 h 30 m||Show|
MILWAUKEE @ MIAMI
The Miami Heat come into tonight's home game versus Milwaukee as winners of five of their last six overall. They held opponents to fewer than 100 points in three of those five wins. Miami is one of the top defensive teams in the NBA, ranking 3rd overall in opponent's scoring average. The Heat could have their hands full against the league's #2 ranked offense, but history favors the Heat. Prior to Milwaukee winning 124-86 at home earlier this year, the Heat had won six straight meetings versus the Bucks. Five of the last six meetings have gone under the total, and none of those games saw a combined 220 points. I expect a strong effort from a Heat team battling to make the playoffs.
|03-14-19||Thunder v. Pacers UNDER 219||106-108||Win||100||5 h 4 m||Show|
THUNDER @ PACERS
The Thunder come into Indiana as winners of four of their last six. They held opponents to less than 100 points in three of those four wins. The Pacers know a thing or two about playing defense, ranking first overall in the NBA in opponent's scoring average. Indiana is 2-2 in it's last four games, failing to score 100 points in each of the losses and holding opponents to fewer than 100 points in each of the wins. With both teams gearing up for a playoff run, don't expect any easy buckets here in tonight's game.

KINGS @ WIZARDS
The Washington Wizards have lost seven of their last 10 overall, and they don't appear to be all that interested in making the playoffs. Perhaps getting swept by the Bucks or the Raptors isn't all that appealing to them. The Sacramento Kings on the other hand continue to compete night in and night out, and this young team would love to make the playoffs. The Kings are four games out of the eighth spot in the West, but they have two games in hand. The Kings are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games versus teams with a losing record. The Kings are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall.
|03-10-19||Magic v. Grizzlies +1.5||Top||97-105||Win||100||22 h 15 m||Show|
ORLANDO @ MEMPHIS
The Memphis Grizzlies are no longer in the playoff conversation, and they have dealt away key players at the trade deadline. This team doesn't quit though, and they come into tonight's home game against Orlando as winners of three of their last four. Home wins came against Portland and Utah, while they won on the road at Dallas. Their one loss during that span came by just three points on the road at Oklahoma City. After proving they can go toe to toe with the better teams in the West, the bookmakers have them pegged as a home dog against a mediocre team from the East. The Magic have lost three of their last four on the road, and they are 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Memphis.
|03-08-19||Cavs v. Heat UNDER 213.5||Top||110-126||Loss||-106||25 h 59 m||Show|
CLEVELAND @ MIAMI
The Heat are in a three way battle for top spot in the Southeast Division, sitting just one game ahead of Orlando and Charlotte. They jumped into first place by beating the Hornets in Charlotte by a score of 91-84 on Wednesday night. Miami is one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, ranking 3rd in the league in scoring defense. Cleveland is one of the lowest scoring teams in the NBA, ranking 29th in points per game. The Heat have failed to reach the total in eight of their last 10 versus Eastern Conference teams, and the under is 7-2 in their last nine when coming off a win. The Cavs have failed to score 100 points in each of the last five head to head meetings.
|03-06-19||Nuggets -5.5 v. Lakers||115-99||Win||100||9 h 2 m||Show|
NUGGETS @ LAKERS
After watching how bad the Lakers have been since LeBron James returned from injury, it's amazing that the bookmakers can find bettors willing to back LA. Tonight's game looks like a particularly tough spot, as the Denver Nuggets are in town looking to snap a three game losing skid. The Lakers won't have Kyle Kuzma, and it's plain to see that LeBron isn't interested. The Nuggets have covered in 16 of their last 23 games overall, and they are currently just a game and a half out of first place in the Western Conference. The Lakers have failed to cover in five of their last six overall.

MAGIC @ CAVS
The Orlando Magic are in a three way fight with Charlotte and Miami for first place in the Southeast. They come into Cleveland as winners of 10 of their last 13 overall. Cleveland of course is tanking, looking to rebuild with high draft picks. The Cavs are coming off back to back double digit home losses. The Magic are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall, and 5-1 ATS in their last six road games. They are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 Sunday games. The Cavaliers are 0-4 ATS in their last four games playing on 0 days rest.
|03-02-19||Bucks v. Jazz -160||111-115||Win||100||9 h 27 m||Show|
BUCKS @ JAZZ
The Milwaukee Bucks own the best record in the Eastern Conference, but they are in a tough spot here against a competitive Western Conference team tonight. I don't like their chances of avoiding a let down on the road in the second game of a back to back at Utah. The Jazz are still an elite defensive team with DPOY candidate Rudy Gobert. The Jazz have won six of the last eight head to head meetings versus Milwaukee, and all four home games during that span. The Bucks are 7-25 ATS in the last 32 meetings, and they are 1-15 ATS in their last 16 at Utah.
|03-01-19||Bucks -185 v. Lakers||131-120||Win||100||9 h 48 m||Show|
BUCKS @ LAKERS
Sometimes a headline doesn't tell the whole story. That was exactly the case following the Lakers last game, a 125-119 win over the Pelicans. LeBron hit a three-point shot in the final minute to seal the win for the Lakers, and the headline the next day read: "King Clutch". What seems lost in that story is that with 27 seconds left in a two possession game, LeBron was 0-for-2 at the free throw line. Then you have to ask yourself if the desperation fade away three-point shot was actaully the right play at the time. That game could have easily gone the other way, and keep in mind they were playing one of the weaker teams in the West. Tonight they are up against the best team in the East, and I think reality is going to hit hard. This isn't a playoff team.
|02-26-19||Celtics v. Raptors -3.5||95-118||Win||100||3 h 38 m||Show|
BOSTON @ TORONTO
The Celtics were supposed to be the team to beat in the Eastern Conference this year, but they come into Toronto sitting in third place in the Atlantic Division. They have lost back to back games, and they have a losing record (14-15) on the road. Home court advantage has been huge in this series, with the home team winning 10 straight since January of 2017. The Celtics are 0-7 in their last seven north of the border. If the Raptors win tonight, they will have an NBA best 26 home wins.

The Hawks have lost three straight on this current home stand, and they have allowed an average of 124 points in those games. They host the Lakers tonight, and the Lakers are playing the final game of a six game road trip. With a win tonight they would be 3-3 on the road trip. LA is desperate to string a few wins together and make a run for the playoffs, while the Hawks are just going through the motions and looking forward to another high draft pick. The Lakers have won the last five head to head meetings versus Atlanta, covering the spread in four of those five games. The Hawks are 9-23 ATS in their last 32 home games, while LA is 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games.

HORNETS @ PACERS
Defense isn't a priority for most teams in the NBA these days, but the Pacers might lean on their defense without leading scorer Victor Oladipo. They are the best defensive team in the NBA, allowing a league low 103.1 points per game. They have won five straight, and they allowed fewer than 100 points in four of those games. The Pacers host Charlotte tonight, and the Hornets are just 8-19 on the road. The Hornets are coming off a big road win at Atlanta, but they had lost four of five on the road prior to that. They scored fewer than 100 points in four of those five games. The under is 37-17 in Pacers last 54 home games, and 23-7 in their last 30 home meetings versus Charlotte.

CHARLOTTE @ ATLANTA
The Atlanta Hawks jumped out to a big lead in the first half of their last game, but they folded like a cheap suit in the second half losing to Toronto by a score of 119-101. They could be in for some more pain here tonight, hosting the Charlotte Hornets. This will be a matchup between the first and last place teams in the Southwest. The Hawks have very little to play for, while the Hornets are eyeing the playoffs. The Hornets are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings, and the Hawks are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games.

MIAMI @ SACRAMENTO
The Kings have won three of their last four home games, and they host the Miami Heat tonight. The Kings swept the season series in 2018, winning all three head to head meetings. The Kings are 8-1 ATS in their last nine home games, and 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 1 days rest. After losing three straight at home, the Heat are coming off a win over the Blazers in Portland. The young Kings should prove to be a tough matchup for Miami, even tougher if Harrison Barnes plays his first game in Sacramento.

HOUSTON @ SACRAMENTO
While the media continues to go crazy over James Harden's record scoring streak, most people in the know are saying that this style of play isn't a winning strategy. Kobe Bryant said that "I don't think that style's ever gonna win championships." Harden didn't disagree with Kobe, saying: "I mean, I have to be ball dominant just because we have injuries," Tonight will be the final game of a four game road trip, and I think Houston might be a little low on energy here in Sacramento. The Kings have been solid at home (17-10) and they are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games versus Houston. The Rockets are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games, and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest.

The Rockets are coming off a home loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, and they take on the first place Denver Nuggets tonight. Denver has won six of it's last seven overall, and the Nuggets are a powerhouse at home. Denver is 22-4 straight up at the Pepsi Center, and the Nuggets are are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games. The Rockets are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall, and they have failed to cover in four straight on the road. Denver ahould start strong here at home against a one dimensional opponent.

After losing 5 of 6 games the Thunder have won 4 straight but will have their hands full in holding the league's highest scoring team from scoring as they allow almost 110 points a game. They are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and have allowed at least 115 points in 7 of their last 9 games.

They will again be without Davis who is still injured and have one of the woest defenses that allow over 115 points a game. Memphis is on a terrible run as well losing 9 of their last 10 games but 6 of the losses were on the road but they have the best defense in the Western conference allowing just 104 points a gme. This is a good spot for Memphis topick up a much needed win.

They lost their last 3 meetings in San Antonio and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 In San Antonio. The Spurs have won 7 of their last 10 games and have an 18-6 record at home. They are 27-9 ATS in their last 36 home games and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall.

They were held to 100 points or less in 4 of their last 5 losses and were 0-5 ATS in those 5. Their prior 2 wins were against Cleveland and Detroit who are both in freefall. Houston have been alternating wins and losse over their lst 7 games but are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 meetings with LA and 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 games overall.

In their last 8 games, the Wolves have allowed teams to score at least 115 points in 5 of them and to make matters worse both Towns and Rose might not be available for this game. Towns was injured in last night's loss and Rose could be rested because he is still injured and this is a back to back game as he played in last night's game.

Toronto was hammered 125-107 in their last game at San Antonio while not winning more than 2 straight games in over a month. Since winning 8 straight games in November, they are just 8-8 since and 6 of the losses have been on the road. A good part of that has been injury related and only being able to win at home. They are on the road again and still have the injury problem while facing the NBA's highest scoring team. The Bucks have won 9 of their last 10 games including their last 5 home games. They won their last game 144-112 and it was the 3rd straight game of scoring over 120 points and have done that in 4 of their last 5 home games. They are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games while Toronto is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Bucks have won the last 3 meetings this season and covered the spread in all 3 wins.

UTAH @ DETROIT
Utah are 1 of the lowest scoring teams in the Western Conference averaging 107 points a game and usually rely on defense to win games. But they have been scoring a lot of points lately. They scored at least 116 points in 4 of their last 5 games and in 5 of their last 7 overall. In their last game they beat Cleveland 117-91 and scored over 120 in 3 of the prior 6 games. They had 8 players score in double digits against the Cavs as they hit over 51% of their shots and 40% of their 3's. They sored 116 points in Toronto the game before and the Raptors have 1 of the better defenses in the Eastern Conference. The Pistons have been losing a lot lately and have dropped 3 of their last 4 games and 12 of 16 overall. They were held below 100 points in 6 of the losses including 4 of their last 5. They are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and have lost the last 4 meetings with the Jazz. They have some injured players which won't make things any easier while Utah is 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games in Detroit.

JAZZ @ RAPTORS.
Utah has a 5-5 record in their last 10 games and have lost 3 of their last 4 road games. They average 105 points a game and are playing in Toronto where the Raptors are 14-4 in home games. The Raptors are 4-4 in their last 8 games and all 4 losses were on the road. They score 112 points a game while the Jazz are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 meetings. Toronto won their last game and this will be a tough place for Utah to pick up a win.

SPURS @ NUGGETS
The Spurs have won 8 of their last 10 games but 7 were at home. They have won 19 games and 14 were at home while they are 5-11 on the road. This is the 2nd game of a back to back between these teams and though the Spurs won the 1st, Denver hit 18 3 pointers and now they are home where they are 13-3. This will be a tough place to pick up a win for San Antonio as the home team has won 9 of their last 10 meetings.

RAPTORS @ MAGIC
To put it simply Toronto is banged up and havve gone 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. They have also lost 3 of their last 4 road games and are 0-4 ATS in those away games. Orlando held Toronto below 100 points in 2 of their last 3 meetings and Toronto is only 5-5 in their last 10 games while they lost just 10 for the whole season. This will be a tough place for the Raptors to win let alone cover the spread.

PELICANS @ MAVERICKS
NO dropped their 4th road game in a row and are 4-14 in away games.Their defense is the 2nd worst in the Western Conference allowing over 115 points a game and they have now lost 7 of their last 10 games overall. They will be without their 4th leading scorer and 3rd leading rebounder as Mirotic is still hurt. Dallas is at home where they have won 3 of their last 4 and have a 13-3 record. They have lost 5 straight with 4 of them on the road but continue to score points as they scored at least 116 points in each of their lst 4 games. With the Pelicans playing poorly on the road and Dallas' strength at home, this should be a win for the Mavericks.

JAZZ @ ROCKETS
Utah had a good run winning 4 of 5 games but since has lost 3 of their last 4 while scoring under 100 points in 2 of the losses. They are the 3rd lowest scoring team in the Western Conference averaging 106 points a game and have been held to 100 points or less in 4 of their last 5 losses as well as losing their last 4 road games. Houston has won 3 in a row and are 5-3 in their last 8 games with the 3 losses all on the road. They have won 3 straight at home winning by at least 7 points in each and are 3-0 ATS in their last 3 games. The Jazz are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games while Houston is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games.

LAKERS @ WIZARDS
The Wizards organization made a statement by aquiring Trevor Ariza, showing everyone that they aren't ready to blow this up quite yet. The push for the playoffs might start tonight at home against the Lakers. LA is coming off a win in Charlotte last night, and I don't think a team with a .500 road record should be a favorite versus a Washington team that plays well at home. The Lakers have lost eight of their last 10 versus the Wizards, and they are 1-4 in their last five at Washington. The Lakers are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 versus teams from the Eastern Conference.
