We stayed hot last night but almost every game I see on the board for tonight I don’t like. With that being said, I’m going to do my absolute best to keep this hot streak going. A quick reminder, when you bet a team like the Rockets and they’re down 17 at the half, double down and take them money line at the half. Reap the blessings and thank nobody but yourself.
I’m not going to pick the Celtics tonight but I know in my heart of hearts I’ll throw a couple bones on whatever spread it gets down to. I love the Celtics at home no matter what but we’ll leave them out of the official four we take tonight. First, we got the other hometown team, the Indiana Pacers, heading to Chicago to take on the Bulls. Pacers are -6.5 and its getting to the point in the NBA season where these games before the All Star Break can make or break a season. Not actually, but that sounds like a great reason to take the Pacers. Pacers have a chance to make some serious noise in the playoffs if they keep winning so look for Oladipo to have a night. If the Bulls win, might go ahead and take the Bears tomorrow, could be that type of weekend in Chicago. Next, we’re taking the Heat at home against the Wizards. I feel like the Heat are a team that are playing well and are doing their best to give D-Wade the best send off a guy could ask for – a playoff run. Heat are -7 at home and I’m taking it. Spread is huge for a game that I feel is normally set around 4-5 so look for the Heat to run the Wizards out of Miami.
The only over we’re taking tonight is the Clippers @ Suns with it set at 232. I love those overs set above 230 so of course this is the one I landed on. Thought about taking Clippers -4 but then I remembered when the Suns beat the Celtics in Boston so going to go the safe road with the over here. Let’s hope the defense continues to be awful as we go forward in the NBA season cause nothing says points like the Phoenix Suns. The last game of the NBA tonight happens to be the game of the night: Thunder @ Trail Blazers. This game was a pick em but moved to Blazers -1 and I love it. Blazers are dynamite at home and Nurkic has been hot, important for a team that has to battle Steven Adams. This is the must see NBA game of the night for sure so hopefully we get one down to the wire like the Rockets last night.
I didn’t think I would dabble in the college game but I can’t help myself. Toledo at home -4.5 and Buffalo away -10, I like Toledo more than Buffalo tonight so Toledo will probably be the loser out of these two. Nobody knows, that’s why gambling is the best. Sidenote: I know, not nobody, all 6 of these are winners on top of the Celtics that I will take seconds before the game starts.
Recap: Pacers -6.5, Heat -7, Clippers/Suns over 232, Trail Blazers -1, Toledo -4.5, Buffalo -10. Don’t forget the Celtics bet right before game time, really let that spread drop. Let’s get it going heading into the weekend and start it off on a winning note.
