Wednesday Tips

February 6, 2013

Wednesday's NBA card is one of the largest of the season with 13 games on tap. The Thunder and Warriors meet up for the third time this season with their series tied at one apiece, while the Bucks travel to Salt Lake City with no rest to battle the Jazz. We'll begin with the Heat playing their second game back from a long road trip against a run-and-gun Houston squad.

Rockets at Heat - 7:35 PM EST

The last time these two teams met up in Houston, the Heat outlasted the Rockets, 113-110 as 5 ½-point favorites in mid-November. Miami squandered a 17-point lead, but managed the victory as LeBron James torched Houston for 38 points and 10 rebounds, while the Heat shot 50% from the floor. The Rockets head to South Florida with no rest following Tuesday's home blowout of the Warriors.

Houston has won three of its last four games away from the Toyota Center, including double-digit victories at New Orleans and Utah as underdogs. However, the Rockets lost their most recent road contest at Denver last Wednesday, 118-110, the only non-cover in the last five games. Kevin McHale's club owns a solid 16-6 ATS record against the Eastern Conference, however, the Rockets have failed to cash in their last four road games versus Eastern foes.

The Heat have covered five straight off an ATS loss, as Miami is coming off a win as a 14-point favorite over Charlotte on Monday, 99-94. Miami hopes to avoid a letdown with both Los Angeles clubs coming into the American Airlines Arena this weekend (Clippers-Friday, Lakers-Sunday). Erik Spoelstra's club has put together a 2-4 ATS record the last six home games, as three of those losses came as double-digit favorites.

Grizzlies at Hawks - 7:35 PM EST

Both these clubs are coming off losses last night, as Memphis makes the short trip to Atlanta. The Hawks have dropped four of the previous five games, including Tuesday's 114-103 defeat at Indiana as six-point underdogs. The Grizzlies were tripped up by the Suns, 96-90, as Phoenix cashed in the road 'dog role.

Atlanta took care of Memphis in the first matchup back in December, 93-83 to cash outright as seven-point underdogs. The Hawks overcame a six-point halftime deficit by outscoring the Grizzlies, 32-13 in the third quarter, as Josh Smith led the way with 24 points. The road team has now won four of the last five meetings in the series, as the Grizzlies blew out the Hawks at Philips Arena last February.

Memphis has cashed seven of 10 times with no rest this season, including a 5-1 ATS record on the highway in this situation. The defense has let down the Grizzlies recently on the road, allowing at least 100 points in four of the last five away contests. The Hawks have hit the 'over' in six of eight home games against Western Conference competition.

Warriors at Thunder - 8:05 PM EST

Golden State hits the court in Oklahoma City tonight after suffering a 31-point thumping at Houston on Tuesday. The Warriors trailed by just one after the first quarter, but Mark Jackson's club was outscored, 102-72 over the final three quarters, while allowing the Rockets to knock down 23 three-pointers. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the Warriors, who continue a tough road trip against a Thunder team that has alternated wins and losses in the last nine games.

OKC blew out Dallas on Monday night, 112-91, while cashing for the first time in three tries against the Mavs this season. Scott Brooks' team played just five home games in January, winning four times, including three victories against Western Conference foes Dallas, Denver, and Memphis. The Thunder fell to the Warriors in Oakland last month, 104-99 as 1 ½-point favorites, as Golden State outscored OKC, 52-42 in the second half.

The Warriors have cashed the 'over' in 10 of 12 games with no rest, while hitting the 'over' in eight of the last 10 contests overall. In fact, Golden State nailed the 'over' in eight of the last previous nine games away from Oracle Arena, as the only 'under' occurred in San Antonio with Stephen Curry out of the lineup. Golden State has lost seven straight visits to Chesapeake Energy Arena dating back to 2008, as the Thunder scored at least 100 points in each matchup.

Bucks at Jazz - 9:05 PM EST

Milwaukee suffered one of the worst ATS setbacks of the season last night, as the Bucks blew a 17-point lead in a 112-104 defeat at Denver. Here's the kicker - the Nuggets closed as seven-point favorites and never covered the spread until the final minute of regulation, much to the dismay of Bucks' bettors. The Bucks look to turn things around tonight with the short trip to Salt Lake City, facing a Jazz club that has won 10 of their last 14 games.

Utah is rolling at home with nine victories in its previous 10 contests at EnergySolutions Arena, including a 98-91 overtime triumph over Sacramento on Monday. The Jazz failed to cash as 8 ½-point favorites, the third ATS loss in the last four home games. Tyrone Corbin's team has won all six home games against Eastern Conference foes, while covering four times.

Since Jim Boylan took over as interim coach of the Bucks on January 6, Milwaukee is riding a crazy 11-4 run to the 'over.' Six of those nine 'overs' have come away from the BMO Harris Bradley Center, while scoring at least 100 points in four of the last five road games. The Bucks have struggled on the second end of a back-to-back this season, cashing in just four of 12 opportunities.

NBA TNT doubleheader: Lakers at Celtics, Bulls at Nuggets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics (-2, 194)

Just as things were starting to fall into place for the Los Angeles Lakers, another major injury cropped up that could severely impair the team's chances of snagging a playoff slot. Forward Pau Gasol is the latest casualty for the Lakers, suffering a torn plantar fascia in his right foot during Tuesday's win over the Brooklyn Nets. Gasol was headed back to Los Angeles to be examined by a specialist, but he is expected to miss at least four weeks. Meanwhile, the Lakers will put their three-game winning streak on the line when they visit the Boston Celtics on Thursday.

Boston suffered what appeared to be a debilitating injury when All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo was lost to a season-ending knee injury. Rather than fold, the Celtics have played their best ball of the season, running their winning streak to five games since Rondo was hurt. Kevin Garnett scored a season-high 27 points in Wednesday's victory over the Toronto Raptors - the only road win during the current streak. All five starters scored in double figures for the fourth straight game for the Celtics.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, TNT

ABOUT THE LAKERS (23-26, 20-28-1 ATS): Gasol was largely responsible for helping Los Angeles snap an eight-game road losing streak, averaging 20 points during the current three-game run. He was starting in place of Dwight Howard, who has sat out the last three games after aggravating the torn labrum in his right shoulder in a loss at Phoenix on Jan. 30. Howard is listed as day-to-day, but Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant let it be known that the day should come soon. "You have to play through where you have to manage the pain," Bryant said. "When you go through those things you learn your body and what you can push through."

ABOUT THE CELTICS (25-23, 19-26-3 ATS): Boston's bench had produced an average of nearly 50 points in the three games prior to the matchup with Toronto. On Wednesday, former Raptor Leandro Barbosa did most of the damage, scoring 12 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter to spark the game-winning rally. It was the third straight game in double figures for Barbosa, who has shot at least 50 percent in each game since Rondo went down. Coach Doc Rivers earned his 400th win with the Celtics, putting him third on the franchise's all-time list behind Red Auerbach (910) and Tom Heinsohn (427).

TRENDS:

* Under is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings in Boston.
* Under is 6-2-1 in the last nine meetings.
* Lakers are 7-15-1 ATS in the last 23 meetings.
* Underdog is 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Road team is 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Los Angeles has won three straight against Boston, including both meetings last season by a combined four points.

2. Paul Pierce, who has four double-doubles in his last five games, is averaging 24.7 points in 24 games against the Lakers.

3. Howard averaged 16.4 points and 12.7 boards in 27 games against Boston while he was with the Orlando Magic.



Chicago Bulls at Denver Nuggets (-6.5, 197.5)

The Denver Nuggets attempt to extend their season-best winning streak to eight games when they visit the Chicago Bulls on Thursday. Denver has won 14 of 17 games and is now among the top five teams in the Western Conference standings, thanks to strong play during a home-heavy stretch. The Nuggets wrap up a six-game homestand against Chicago, which has won six of nine games. The Bulls hope to have center Joakim Noah (foot) back after a three-game absence.

Chicago is a solid 14-8 on the road despite losing at Indiana on Monday. The Bulls are 2-2 during a stretch in which eight of nine games are on the road. Chicago will be without guard Kirk Hinrich (elbow) for the fourth straight game. Denver rallied to beat the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday and scored 29 points off 17 turnovers. “When we create any type of offense with our defense, we score,” coach George Karl told reporters. “Everybody wants to make a great offensive play, but I think it’s actually more thrilling and exciting to a team to make a great defensive play.”

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT, WGN (Chicago), Altitude (Denver)

ABOUT THE BULLS (29-19, 20-28 ATS): Guard Marco Belinelli is a game-time decision after turning an ankle during Monday’s game against the Pacers. Belinelli suffered the injury in the first half and then returned to score 17 in the second half en route to a season-high 24 points. With point guards Derrick Rose (knee) and Hinrich sidelined, veteran Nate Robinson has played 40-plus minutes in three consecutive games while being highly productive. Robinson is averaging 18.7 points over the last seven games. Forward Carlos Boozer (hamstring) had 10 points against Indiana after missing the previous three contests.

ABOUT THE NUGGETS (31-18, 29-20 ATS): Denver has topped 100 points in eight consecutive contests and will find it challenging to keep the streak going against the Bulls, who rate third in the NBA by allowing just 91 points per game. Controlling the pace will be crucial for the Nuggets. “We’ve got to move the ball and we’ve got to run,” said swingman Corey Brewer, who tallied 20 points against Milwaukee. “It’s all about running, especially when you play a team like the Bulls, who play really good five-on-defense. You want to get the pace going.” Forward Kenneth Faried had 13 points and 10 rebounds against Milwaukee for his 20th double-double of the campaign.

TRENDS:

* Under is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
* Home team is 6-2-1 ATS in the last nine meetings.
* Over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Denver.
* Bulls are 5-11-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
* Bulls are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Denver.
* Underdog is 4-1-1 ATS in the last six meetings.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Denver has won five straight games against Chicago at the Pepsi Center and 11 of the past 12.

2. Bulls C Taj Gibson is averaging 14.8 points and 12 rebounds while starting the last four games.

3. The Nuggets are 19-3 when allowing fewer than 100 points.

Friday Tips

February 8, 2013

Things get hot and heavy on the final Friday night prior to the All-Star break in the NBA. The banged-up Clippers continue their Grammy trip in Miami, while the Bulls play their second game in as many nights at Utah. The night begins in the Nation's Capital with the red-hot Wizards looking to avenge an overtime loss to Brooklyn.

Nets at Wizards - 7:05 PM EST

Washington wasn't exactly a hot ticket for bettors early in the season, but the Wizards have won and cashed in six of the last seven home contests. Since John Wall returned to the lineup, posting an 8-7 SU and 12-3 ATS record, including four outright victories as home underdogs. The Nets enter D.C. off a stretch of alternating wins and losses in each of their last six games.

Brooklyn edged Detroit, 93-90 on Wednesday as two-point underdogs, the third straight game the Nets have finished 'under' the total. P.J. Carlisemo's club looks to cover consecutive contests for the first time since January 23, as the Nets own a dreadful 2-5 ATS record the past seven games. The Nets outlasted the Wizards in the last meeting at the Verizon Center in early January, 115-113 in double overtime. Washington cashed as six-point 'dogs, as the Wizards blew a 14-point lead in one of their last games without Wall.

This recent stretch of success for Randy Wittman's team is blindsiding to bettors, especially coming off a pair of solid home wins over the Clippers and Knicks this week. Rookie star Bradley Beal is expected to return to the Washington lineup tonight after missing the last five games with a sprained wrist, as the former Florida standout scored 24 points in the double-overtime setback to Brooklyn last month. The Wizards are seeking their second three-game winning streak of the season, as this current homestand mirrors a mid-January stretch when Washington grabbed back-to-back home 'dog wins before routing Orlando.

Clippers at Heat - 8:05 PM EST

Los Angeles snapped a three-game skid with a victory over beat-up Orlando on Wednesday, as the Clippers attempt to get healthy tonight in Miami. Chris Paul has missed the last nine games with a knee injury, as L.A. has covered just three times in this span, while Blake Griffin sat out the previous two contests with a strained hamstring. On the Heat side, Chris Bosh is expected to return after a one-game absence with a cold.

Miami was anything but cold from the field in Wednesday's home 114-108 victory over Houston, but the Heat failed to cover as 7 ½-point favorites. Since Christmas, Erik Spoelstra's club has put together a 2-5 ATS record at home, while the Heat is 6-1 SU in this period. Despite the 'over' on Wednesday, Miami owns a 9-4 mark to the 'under' at the American Airlines Arena since December 10.

The home team has won eight straight meetings in this series, including L.A.'s 107-100 victory at Staples Center over Miami on November 14. The Heat shot just 45% from the floor in that defeat, as Dwyane Wade hit just 2-of-10 shots for six points. The Clippers are 3-7 ATS the last 10 games, while the offense has put up less than 100 points eight times. Los Angeles will be listed as a road underdog for the seventh time this season, as the Clips have covered four times, including twice without Paul.

Blazers at Rockets - 8:05 PM EST

Portland has solved the Houston mystery twice this season with a pair of overtime victories over the Rockets. Granted, both those wins came back in November, when the Rockets lost seven of nine games following a 2-0 start. The Rockets have rebounded since that slow start to forge three games above .500 and be right in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race.

The Blazers continue their trek through the Lone Star State tonight after getting tripped up by the Mavericks on Wednesday night, 105-99, snapping a two-game winning streak. Portland owns a 5-2 SU and 4-2-1 ATS the last seven contests off a road loss, but both ATS losses came in the home favorite role to Cleveland and Dallas. The offense has picked up recently by topping the 99-point mark in six of the last eight games, resulting in five 'overs.'

The last time the Rockets played at the Toyota Center, Houston dropped a season-high 140 points in Wednesday's rout of Golden State. Since New Year's Eve, Kevin McHale's squad has compiled a 6-2 SU/ATS record the last eight home contests, including a 5-0 ATS mark as a favorite of at least four points. The 'over' is 4-2 in six home games with a total set at least 210, including Wednesday's high-scoring affair with the Warriors.

Bulls at Jazz - 10:35 PM EST

Chicago has no time to digest last night's blowout loss at Denver, as the Bulls make the short trip to Salt Lake City tonight. Even the stout Bulls' defense couldn't slow down the red-hot Nuggets in a 128-96 setback as six-point road underdogs, the third loss in the last four games for Tom Thibodeau's club. The Jazz keeps climbing the ranks in the Western Conference at 28-22, while Utah looks to finish off a three-game homestand at 3-0.

Utah is quietly winning games at a rapid rate, picking up 13 victories in the last 18 trips to the court since the start at January. In this stretch, Tyrone Corbin's club is a scorching 10-1 SU and 7-4 ATS at home, with the lone slip-up coming in a 45-point blowout loss to the Rockets in late January. The Jazz has won all seven home contests against Eastern Conference foes, including over division leaders Miami and Indiana.

In spite of consecutive road losses, the Bulls still own the best away record in the East at 14-9. However, the defense needs to get fixed up after allowing 128 and 111 points in these two defeats, after a span of nine games of giving up 93 points or fewer. Chicago is still a solid bet as a road 'dog, cashing in seven of the last 10 opportunities when receiving points away from the United Center.
