Cavaliers vs. Rockets NBA Over-Under Prediction from Cappers Club: November 9th 2017

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Houston Rockets
NBA Over-Under Prediction: Over 228 points (November 9th 2017)

This play just missed out on our premium card. The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Houston Rockets face off on Thursday, and with two teams who can really score, the over has the value.

These are both teams who have no issue putting the ball into the hoop with both teams coming into this game averaging 109.9 points per game.

Over the last five games for both of those teams that number has risen to over 114 though. The Cavaliers also have not shown much ability to play defense this year, which means the Rockets are going to have a field day.

Coming into this game the Cavaliers are giving up almost 114 points per game, and opponents are shooting 41.9 percent from three.

I expect James Harden will have no issue in this game, and light up the scoreboard.

Some trends to note. Over is 5-1 in Cavaliers last six road games. Over is 4-0 in Rockets last four overall.

Lakers vs. Celtics NBA Prediction from Larry Ness: November 8th 2017

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Boston Celtics
NBA Prediction: Lakers +9 (November 8th 2017)

The 5-5 LA Lakers are in Boston to take on the 9-2 Celtics and while I’m not calling for an outright victory, I do definitely expect the young but hungry visiting side to keep this one competitive down the stretch.

LA comes in with momentum and confidence as well after back-to-back victories, most recently a convincing 107-102 win at home on Sunday over the Grizzlies. Brook Lopez led the charge in that one with 21 points.

So far LA averages 106.5 PPG and concedes 107.3. The C’s opened the year with two straight losses, but have since won nine straight. Boston averages 103.5 PPG and concedes 94.5.

Kyrie Irving had 35 points and seven assists in the Celtics latest victory.

I’ll point out though that LA is 12-7 ATS in its last 19 when playing on two days rest (including 2-0 this season,) while Boston is interestingly just 8-12 ATS in its last 20 against the Pacific division.
A lot of new faces for both sides, but the Lakers young core is coming together with veteran big man Lopez leading the way.

I think we’re going to witness an all out war to the end in this one and will therefore recommend grabbing as many points as you can.

Pelicans vs. Pacers NBA Point Spread Prediction from Scott Spreitzer: November 7th 2017

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Indiana Pacers
NBA Point Spread Pick: Pacers -1 (November 7th 2017)

I’m recommending a play on the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night.  We had the Pacers +2 at the New York Knicks a couple nights ago.  The Pacers had their 3-game winning streak snapped in their previous game and we felt they’d bounce back.  Indiana led 90-74 at one point of the fourth quarter before a collapse saw them get outscored 34-11, leading to a 108-101 defeat.

The Pacers return home where they have covered five of six at home against teams with a winning home record.  Myles Turner returned two games ago for the Pacers, just in time to face the Pelicans’ Anthony Davis / DeMarcus Cousins tandem.  I don’t care for New Orleans’ PG situation.  Jrue Holliday and backup Jameer Nelson continue to underwhelm.  Indiana has covered 8 of the last 11 meetings and we like them here.  I’m recommending a play on the Pacers on Tuesday.  Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.

NBA Pick: Dave Price betting the Heat +15 over the Warriors on November 6th 2017

Miami Heat vs. Golden State Warriors
NBA Prediction: Heat +15 points (November 6th 2017)

The Key: The Miami Heat are playing much better now that Hassan Whiteside is healthy.  He had missed 5 straight games before returning for the past 3 contests.  The Heat beat the Bulls at home, pulled off the upset over the Clippers on the road yesterday, and only lost 94-95 to the Nuggets on the road after blowing a double-digit lead.  They may lose to the Warriors tonight, but the price is too good to pass up with them catching 15 points here.  Bets against any team (Golden State) off 3 straight covers as a favorite in November games are 32-9 ATS over the last 5 seasons.  The Warriors shouldn’t be laying this many points tonight.  Take Miami.

New Orleans vs. Dallas NBA Betting Odds & Pick from Teddy Covers: November 3rd 2017

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Dallas Mavericks
NBA Betting Pick: NO -4.5 (November 3rd 2017)

Dallas opened 2-13 SU last year; an early season slump that essentially doomed their campaign.  They spent the entirety of training camp talking about how that wasn’t going to happen again this year.  And yet here we are, 2 ½ weeks into the season and the Mavs are sitting at 1-8, the single worst record in the NBA.  The 1-7 Hawks notched their only victory against this Mavericks team, in Dallas.  Sacramento, too, has one win on the season – against the Mavs, in Dallas.  And there’s not much hope moving forward for a squad that has quietly morphed into a true bottom feeder.  It’s surely worth noting in this pointspread range that six of the Mavs seven losses this season have come by five points or more.

New Orleans biggest issue this season has been with turnovers, ranked #26 in the NBA with more than 15 giveaways per game.  But the Mavs aren’t playing much on-ball defense, unable to force the turnovers that lead to easy fast break buckets.  And the Pelicans twin towers of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins should feast in the low post against a Mavericks team that ranks dead last in the NBA in defensive efficiency, allowing a whopping 111.5 points per 100 possessions – worse than the Cavs, Nets, Suns or Kings.  Coming off back-2-back losses against quality foes, this is a legitimate ‘step-up’ spot for the road favorite!  Take the Pelicans.

Teddy is riding a SCORCHING HOT 83% NFL Run over the last three weeks.  He came a single point away from another PERFECT SWEEP last Sunday; cashing at a 66% clip in the NFL since Week 1!   Don’t miss any of Teddy’s Top Rated winners this weekend, including his One & Only NFL GOY on Monday Night.  

Nuggets vs. Knicks Point Spread Prediction from Mike Lundin: October 30th 2017

Denver Nuggets vs. New York Knicks
Point Spread Prediction: DEN -4.5 (October 30th 2017)

This is an obvious let down spot for the New York Knicks following a massive 114-95 win at Cleveland last night. Note that the Knicks are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games following a straight up win and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a straight up win of more than 10 points.

Tonight they’ll host a Denver Nuggets side that won 124-111 at Brooklyn yesterday and is perfect 5-0 ATS in its last five games playing on no rest.

The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in the last five head-to-head meetings with the Knicks and that’s a perfect trend I think will continue for at least another contest.

My free pick is on the Denver Nuggets.
