3-1 last night for the second day in a row. I believe that’s called “a roll”. Let’s keep it going and finish this weekend strong.
Our big lock of the night was the 76ers -5 against the Magic. Even without Ben Simmons, the Sixers rolled hard and won by 19. This team just keeps getting better and the Magic keep getting worse.
We went back to an old favorite as well last night as we took the Celtics -3.5 and they easily won by 10 at Indiana.
The lone loss of the night was the Milwaukee Bucks. This team needs a serious overhaul on defense as they gave up some huge points to the Jazz. Not exactly a team known for their scoring. Jason Kidd has to be considered on the hot seat and it’ll be awhile before we invest in the Bucks again.
We finished the night strong taking the Kings +4 as they faced the struggling Clippers. LA grabbed the win, but only by two which sent us home happy.
A great night, now let’s have another.
Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls Betting Tips:
The Bulls are in a bad place right now. They lost the last two games by a combined 79 points including an ugly 49 point loss to the Warriors. They’ve lost four straight and nine of the last ten. This is a bad basketball team and they are going to lose a lot of games this year.
Which is good for Miami who could really use the win right now. They broke Boston’s win streak and have now won two straight to get them to .500. This is a team that many expect good things out of and if they are going to win, they need to do it tonight against a team like the Bulls. Heat -7 is not a lot of points considering how they have played as of late and we are going to roll with it.
We’re going to double down on this game as well with the over 197 points. The Bulls have allowed 110+ in four of the past five and Miami has been shooting well as of late. Honestly, this one is more about how bad Chicago is and we feel pretty strongly that they are just that bad.
Brooklyn Nets vs. Memphis Grizzlies Betting Tips:
Memphis will still be without Mike Conley for this one which is a huge downgrade for their offense. Memphis is 7-11 at the moment and is running the risk of letting their season slip away. They draw a tough match-up against Brooklyn as the Nets play a completely different style than them.
We don’t have a lot of faith in the way that the Grizzlies play without Conley and think there is a strong chance that Brooklyn can win this one outright. They’ve played it tight against much better teams and could strike on a team that underestimates them here tonight.
Brooklyn +5.5 is a great play here tonight. They can score, they play fast and Grizzlies won’t have Conley. Sometimes it’s just that simple.
