Wednesday's Tips

March 25, 2014


Nets at Bobcats – 7:05 PM EST

Brooklyn: 37-32 SU, 37-32 ATS
Charlotte: 34-37 SU, 40-28-3 ATS

The Nets and Bobcats are meeting for the final time in the regular season as the home team has won the first three matchups. Brooklyn held off Charlotte at the Barclays Center, 104-99 last Wednesday as the Bobcats cashed as 6 ½-point underdogs. The Bobcats had won nine of their previous 10 games at Time Warner Cable Arena prior to Monday’s 100-89 setback to the Rockets, but Charlotte still owns a solid 11-3-1 ATS record the last 15 home contests.

Brooklyn returns home after splitting a pair of overtime games at Dallas and New Orleans on a back-to-back set. The Nets rallied to stun the Mavericks on Sunday night, 107-104 as 4 ½-point ‘dogs, but Brooklyn blew a 20-point lead in Monday’s setback to New Orleans, 109-104. Since losing by 44 at Portland on February 26, the Nets have won 11 of their last 14 games, but all three defeats have come on the highway.

Suns at Wizards – 7:05 PM EST

Phoenix: 42-29 SU, 46-24-1 ATS
Washington: 36-34 SU, 36-33-1 ATS

The Wizards hit the skids on their recent four-game road trip against the Western Conference, losing three times with the lone victory coming over the hapless Lakers. Washington’s defense yielded at least 105 points in each contest, while falling to 1-6 ATS in the last seven games away from the Verizon Center. Now, the Wizards return home for a crucial three-game homestand, as Randy Wittman’s team is just 5-5 SU and 3-6-1 ATS the past 10 games in the Nation’s Capital.

Phoenix is riding a four-game winning streak, coming off Monday’s 102-95 triumph at Atlanta as a 2 ½-point favorite. Jeff Hornacek’s club has covered 12 of its last 15 games on the highway, including an 8-1 ATS mark against the Eastern Conference in this stretch. The Suns will be playing with revenge after getting tripped up at home by the Wizards in late January, 101-95 as 3 ½-point favorites, as Phoenix is just 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS when avenging a loss this season to an Eastern Conference opponent.

Heat at Pacers – 8:05 PM EST

Miami: 48-21 SU, 30-37-2 ATS
Indiana: 51-20 SU, 35-35-1 ATS

The Heat and Pacers are on a collision course to meet in the Eastern Conference Finals for the second straight season, as the two teams hook up in Indianapolis on Wednesday. The home team has won each of the first two matchups, including a 97-94 triumph by Miami back on December 18, but the Pacers cashed as four-point underdogs. Since an eight-game winning streak from February through the start of March, the defending champs are 5-7 SU and 3-9 ATS the last 12 contests, including a dreadful 1-5 SU and 0-6 ATS record in the highway.

The Pacers are stumbling to the finish after a 25-5 start, as Indiana is just 26-15 since January 1. The 26-15 mark is still impressive, but Frank Vogel’s squad has burned backers with a disastrous 3-15-1 ATS record since the All-Star break. In the last nine games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the Pacers have cashed just twice, while currently riding a five-game ‘under’ streak overall. The positive for Indiana over the last six weeks has been the defense at home, limiting 10 straight foes to less than 100 points at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Pacers have won three consecutive home meetings with the Heat since Game 4 of last season’s Eastern Conference Finals, while holding Miami to 92 points or less in each victory.

Clippers at Pelicans – 8:05 PM EST

Los Angeles: 50-21 SU, 39-31-1 ATS
New Orleans: 30-40 SU, 31-35-4 ATS

The Clippers embark on their final major road trip of the season, hitting the highway for five games starting in the Big Easy. Things have come easy for Los Angeles of late, winning 13 of its last 14 contests, but the Clips failed to cover as heavy favorites in recent victories over the Pistons and Bucks. During this hot stretch for L.A., the Clips have dominated the Pelicans twice, including a 123-110 triumph at Smoothie King Center on February 24 as 4 ½-point favorites.

The Pelicans have put together a modest three-game winning streak, which includes solid home victories over the Heat and Nets. New Orleans has turned into an ‘over’ team of late, hitting the ‘over’ in six straight games and nine of the last 10, while busting the 100-point mark nine times during this stretch. The Pelicans are holding their own at home, winning five of their past eight at Smoothie King Center, but own a dreadful 2-9 record the last 11 home contests against Western Conference foes.

On the verge of history, 76ers plus points not worth look

The 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers have been one of the worst teams in history. Their 25-game losing streak has them one loss away from tying the 2010-11 Cavaliers for the longest losing streak in NBA history.

During that span, the 76ers are an abysmal 9-16 against the spread. However, the 76ers are even worse when they get spotted 20 plus points. Philadelphia has been 20-plus point dogs twice during that span (+20 at San Antonio and +21 at Oklahoma City) and have failed to cover both times.

The 76ers open as 20.5-point dogs when they visit Houston Thursday.


Two of top Over plays in NBA meet with Lakers-Bucks

Though both are eliminated from playoff contention, the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks do have something that will make bettors happy. The Lakers and Bucks are No. 2 and No. 6 in going over the total in their games respectively. Also, in the last four meetings in Milwaukee, these teams have gone over the total.

The Lakers have gone over in 11 of their past 15 games overall and have an O/U record of 12-4 in their past 16 on the road.

The Bucks, coming off an extended road trip, are also looking at solid over trends. In the nine home games following a road trip of a week or more, the Bucks are 7-0-2 O/U.

The opening total for the Lakers and Bucks is 217, the largest on the NBA board Thursday.


Clippers open as small road faves at Mavs

The San Antonio Spurs might be the hottest team in the Association, but the Los Angeles Clippers aren't too far behind.

The Clips had an 11-game winning streak snapped at the Denver Nuggets back on March 17, but they take a modest two-game streak into Dallas Thursday night.

Books have opened the Clips as small 1-point road faves for the matchup, but Lob City failed to cover at Dallas as 2.5-point faves back on Jan. 15. The Clippers are 2-0 straight up versus the Mavs this season, but are 1-1 against the spread.

OU TREND OF THE DAY:

-- The Rockets are 0-10 OU (-15.25 ppg) since Jan 09, 2010 at home with two or more days of rest after a game in which they scored less than 15% of their points from the free throw line.

Clippers, Mavs clash

March 27, 2014


Los Angeles Clippers (50-22) at Dallas Mavericks (43-29)

Sportsbook.ag Line: Los Angeles -1, Total: 212

The Clippers continue their five-game road-trip when they visit the Mavericks on Thursday night.

Los Angeles has been the hottest team in the NBA over the past month and is 13-2 SU (9-5-1 ATS) since Feb. 23. Also during its current hot streak, the club has seen the total go under in 12 of its past 13 contests. The Clippers were unable to handle the Pelicans on Wednesday night on the road though, losing 98-96 as 7.5-point favorites. Their league-best offense shot only 41.3% FG and converted just 17-of-28 (61%) from the charity stripe.

Dallas has also been playing solid basketball of late, winning SU in five of its past seven games (4-3 ATS), and is coming off a huge overtime win against the Thunder on Tuesday. Dallas rallied from a five-point deficit heading into the fourth quarter to force overtime then pulled away in the extra period; outscoring the Thunder 17-8 to secure a 128-119 victory as three-point underdogs.

The Clippers should not be overly concerned in continuing their five-game road trip, as they have gone 19-16 SU (21-13 ATS) away from home this season. The Mavericks have been very good at home though, compiling a 24-12 SU record, but going only 17-19 ATS.

This game will be the third time these teams have faced each other since the beginning of January as L.A. has been able to come away with a win in each game, one away and one at home, while being unable to cover the spread in the latter. They won the barnburner by a score of 129-127, as each team shot better than 50% from the field, but did not cover the five-point spread at home.

Going back three seasons, the Clippers hold a 6-2 SU edge (4-3-1 ATS) in this series, but were not always so talented, and are only 20-44 SU (28-32-4 ATS) since 1996. Los Angeles has been a solid bet ATS this season with a 39-32 record (55%) but will be faced with the 31-14 ATS record that the Mavericks have put together over the past two seasons when the line is between +3 and -3.

Injuries should not play too much of a factor in this meeting, as the Clippers continue to be without the services of SG J.J. Redick (hip). PG Jose Calderon (face) is probable after playing for Dallas on Tuesday.

The Clippers' offense has been prolific this season and is the best in the NBA with 107.4 PPG. Their 96 points scored in their loss to New Orleans on Wednesday is only the second time they have scored less than 100 points over their past 15 games. They also are efficient in their scoring, hitting 47.5% FG (4th in league) this season. The defense has not been quite as good though, allowing opponents to score 100.3 PPG (13th in league).

PG Chris Paul (18.5 PPG, 11.0 APG, 2.5 SPG) is coming off his worst shooting performance in recent memory when he failed to hit a shot from the field (0-for-12 FG) while scoring two points with 12 assists against the Pelicans. He will hope to rebound against a Dallas team which he has averaged 21.7 PPG (52% FG), 8.9 APG and 2.4 SPG against over 27 career games.

PF Blake Griffin (24.3 PPG, 9.7 RPG) has scored at least 20 points in each of his past 31 contests while increasing his assists (5.6 APG) and blocks (1.8 BPG) over the past five games. He should have no problem hitting for 20 points again as he has netted 24.0 PPG (41% FG) to go along with 11.0 RPG and 6.5 APG against the Mavericks in two games this season.

C DeAndre Jordan (10.1 PPG, 13.7 RPG, 2.4 BPG) currently leads the league in rebounds and shooting (66.6% FG), but has failed to break into double-digit points in any of his past four games. His two contests against Dallas this season have been spectacular, as he has scored 16.0 PPG (70% FG) with 15.5 RPG and 2.5 BPG.

With 128 points against the Thunder on Tuesday night, the Mavericks once again proved they can keep up offensively with anybody in the league, averaging 105.0 PPG (8th in NBA) this season. They have actually improved on that number over their past five games, getting 114.0 PPG (47% FG) in that time while allowing their opponents to score 108.8 PPG (45% FG); a number a bit higher than the 102.5 PPG (10th-worst in league) they are giving up on the season.

PF Dirk Nowitzki (21.4 PPG, 6.1 RPG) rebounded from one of his worst games of the season on Sunday, when he went 2-for-12 from the field, scoring 32 points (11-of-23 FG) to go along with 10 rebounds, six assists and four steals against Oklahoma City on Tuesday. He’s had a long career against the Clippers (50 games, 48 starts), averaging 21.3 PPG (47% FG) and 7.3 RPG.

SG Monta Ellis (19.0 PPG, 5.7 APG, 1.8 SPG) has scored 22+ points in three of his past five contests, but has managed only 13.0 PPG (48% FG) in two games against L.A. this season. He did dish out 11.0 APG and grab 3.0 SPG in those games though, and has done very well (17.9 PPG, 6.4 APG, 1.5 SPG) over 23 career games (20 starts) against them.

PG Jose Calderon (11.5 PPG, 4.8 APG) left Sunday’s game in the first minute after a blow to the face, but bounced back nicely on Tuesday, hitting 7-of-10 shots from the field, including 6-for-9 from long range, while finishing with 22 points and eight assists. He has played 16 career games (13 starts) against Los Angeles, dropping 11.3 PPG (49% FG) with 6.5 APG.
