It was a 2-1 winning night last night with the NBA Tips.
We went with Under 203 points in the Hornets vs Pistons game and that one came in with points to spare. The final score was Detroit 102-90 for a total of 192 points. With Eminem in town, it was nice for the Pistons to get the W for sure. There was some great energy in the crowd and we were concerned that’d help the teams put the score over but thankfully it did not.
We also had the Grizzlies -2.5 over the Pelicans and that was another easy one. New Orleans started strong but Memphis took over in the 2nd and that was all she wrote. Was nice to see Brooks step up like that and that’s the sort of thing Memphis will need this season – guys like that to really step it up.
Our loss was with the Heat to cover as the Magic were just too good for them. it got exciting at the end too as the Magic almost blew the 17pt lead they were holding but Evan Fournier stepped up big time for them.
We move onto tonight as the 6 remaining teams play their first game of the season. In the early game, the Raptors with a lot of big expectations take on the Bulls. The Oklahoma City Thunder host the Knicks and the Lakers go up against the Clippers.
Thunder vs Knicks Betting Tips:
Big game tonight as Carmelo Anthony plays against the Knicks. Vegas are expecting big things with the Thunder 12 point favourites. The Over/Under is 215.5 points.
This is such an interesting move for Melo – and good for him. The Knicks are just a dumpster fire and leaving there is the best thing for him. This new roster is quite exciting and it looks like a really solid rebuild since KD left.
Honestly the Thunder are one team I’m super hyped to watch this season. I love the changes there and I think their offense is going to be electric. I’ve been counting down the days to this game and I can’t wait to watch it.
We’re going to take Thunder to cover the spread tonight. So the bet tonight is Thunder -12.
Clippers vs Lakers Betting Tips:
The Clippers are -6 favourites and the over/under is 217pts.
The Clippers lost Chris Paul during the off-season but honestly the offense looks like they won’t miss him at all. But then they could lose their entire roster and it wouldn’t matter as long as Blake Griffin was healthy. We like Beverley tonight – we feel he is highly underrated and he’d going to lead to a lot of turnovers for the Clips tonight which is why we’re happy with that point spread.
The Lakers are really inexperienced and while this may be a team for the future, this is one that the Clippers if they’re on should rock with ease.
We think it’s going to be a bad night for the Lakers. Clippers -6
