Inside the Paint - Sunday

March 10, 2013

Sunday’s NBA slate offers up nine games and seven of them take place in the evening. Truth be told, if it wasn’t for the Miami-Indiana matchup, the other six games tonight are borderline watchable. However, you can bet on them and we’re going to break down the action. Those looking to get down on the two afternoon games can check out a quality preview from our friends at Sportsbook.ag.

Indiana at Miami

The Heat (46-14 straight up, 31-29 against the spread) will look to extend their winning streak to 18 games on Sunday when Indiana visits (39-23 SU, 35-27 ATS) American Airlines Arena. Coincidentally, the last team to beat Miami was Indiana, which happened on Feb. 1 as the Pacers secured a 102-89 home victory. Can the Heat avenge that loss and keep the streak going? It’s certainly looks doable to VegasInsider.com handicapper Marc Lawrence and his betting database.

He explained, “Triple revenge is on tap in this one, as the Pacers smacked the Heat twice this year in Indy and once last season, all by double digits. Consider this majestical stat: Heat are 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS in the LeBron James era when avenging a same-season loss of 13 or more points, including 6-0 both SU and ATS when Miami owns a win percentage of .657 or more on the season.”

“Meanwhile, the Pacers find themselves in a same-season revenge sandwich with Orlando and Minnesota and these quick two-game road trips to Florida can play havoc with the attention span of Midwesterners. Heading from the Magic Kingdom to LeBron’s Kingdom can be tough: if Mickey’s distractions don’t get you, the Saturday night parties on South Beach will.”

Those numbers definitely lean to Miami, who opened as a 7 ½-point home favorite over Indiana. The early action is on the Pacers with the number hovering at 7 or 6 ½-points at most betting shops. Make a note that Miami is 0-5 ATS in their last five home games and Indiana is 5-0 ATS (4-1 SU) in its last five on the road, the lone loss coming by one at Denver (101-102) on Jan. 28.

Tip-off is slated for 6:05 p.m. ET with NBATV providing national coverage.

Non-Playoff Matchups

If you’ve followed my “Inside the Paint” columns weekly, then you’re well aware of me leaning to the ‘over’ when non-playoff teams square off. It’s a simple handicap and it focuses on defense or the lack thereof. I understand that these teams are far from offensive juggernauts but they are pros and they do make shots more often than not. The Wizards-Bobcats matchup applied last night and the ‘over’ cashed, plus the Mavs-Pistons and Kings-Suns both went ‘over’ on Friday. It doesn’t hit every night, evidenced by Washington-Minnesota (87-82) last Tuesday but the pace will be there and that’s the key to betting totals in hoops.

Cleveland at Toronto: Revenge spot for the Raptors, who just lost at Cleveland (92-103) on Feb. 27. Much higher total here and you could be hesitant to back Toronto in its first game back from the four-game road trip. The Cavs have a ton of injury issues and you should probably wait to see if Irving and Waiters are playing tonight.

Philadelphia at Orlando: This particular line and matchup clearly defines the above angle with non-playoff teams. Orlando and Philadelphia have already met twice this season and the totals were 185 and 189. Those two games were clear-cut ‘under’ tickets and now the total here is 195. This one looks tempting but it’s really hard to watch Philadelphia and its scoring droughts. Fortunately, the Magic defense shouldn’t impose much of a threat.

Dallas at Minnesota: This could be the pass game considering the Timberwolves have been decimated by injuries. However the last four times Dallas has been listed as a road favorite, it has gone 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS and the ‘over’ has cashed in all four games.

Portland at New Orleans: This one is real tough to handicap. The Trail Blazers just put up a season-high 136 points in a win over San Antonio on Friday but it’s hard to forget that the same team was embarrassed 99-63 by Hornets three weeks ago in New Orleans. Portland is a hit or miss team and so is New Orleans, who watched the Lakers close them out with a 20-0 scoring burst last Wednesday. The Trail Blazers have covered seven straight and seeing them listed as favorites in the Big Easy makes you lean that way tonight. The opening total of 197 got bet down to 196 but make a note that this is the highest number between the pair in the last 19 meeting, which tells you something.

Late-Night Action

Milwaukee at Sacramento: The line should tell you everything here. We understand the Kings are home playing a team on no rest as well. Still, a team 20 games (22-42) under .500 that doesn’t play defense shouldn’t be laying points to a playoff team, which is the case here. The Bucks are currently the eighth seed in the West but they do have opportunities to move up. Last night, Milwaukee beat Golden State 103-93 as a 2 ½-point road underdog. Since the All-Star break, the Bucks are 5-2 SU and 4-3 ATS and that includes a 3-1 mark on the road. Milwaukee has gone 6-9 SU and 5-10 ATS on zero days rest. This game has the highest total (215) on the board largely due to Sacramento’s inept defense (105.2 PPG) and its ability to run ‘n gun. In early December from the Bradley Center, Milwaukee stopped Sacramento 98-85 as an eight-point favorite.

Detroit at L.A. Clippers: Oddsmakers opened Los Angeles as a 14-point favorite against Detroit, who has dropped four straight and seven of its last eight games. The Clippers are off a loss as well, falling on the road to Denver 107-92 last Thursday. Los Angeles has played better (24-7 SU, 19-12 ATS) at the Staples Center but despite the poor road record, the Pistons (8-21 SU, 14-15 ATS) have been close to profitable outside of the Palace. These teams met in mid-December and Los Angeles notched a comfortable 88-76 victory on the road. The injury factor could scare you away from the Clippers tonight with key bench players Jamal Crawford (ankle) and Eric Bledsoe (calf) both listed as ‘doubtful.’

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fullcourt press: Sunday's NBA betting notes
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boston Celtics at Oklahoma City Thunder (-10.5, 200.5)

The Celtics' five-game winning streak is the third-longest active streak in the league behind Miami (17) and Denver (8). Oklahoma City has won four straight and seven of eight. It also has won four straight at home, where its 27-4 mark is the third-best in the league. It's the last of two meetings this season. The Celtics won the first matchup 108-100 on Nov. 23 in Boston. Boston is 5-0 ATS in its last five games overall.

Chicago Bulls at Los Angeles Lakers (-5.5, 194.5)

Chicago has lost four of its last seven but is coming off an 89-88 win over Utah and is clinging to fifth place in the East. The Bulls are an impressive 17-13 on the road as they head into Staples Center, where the Lakers have won five straight. Los Angeles is above .500 for the first time since it was 6-5 and has pulled even with struggling Utah for eighth place. Chicago has won the past three meetings since snapping a seven-game skid against the Lakers, including a 95-83 home victory in the first meeting this season on Jan. 21. The Bulls are 1-6 ATS in their last seven Sunday games.

Cleveland Cavaliers at Toronto Raptors (-5.5, 202.5)

The Toronto Raptors have faded from the Eastern Conference playoff picture with losses in six of their last seven games. The Cavaliers have been much improved over the past couple of months and have won five of their last nine, but they're coming off a 103-92 loss to Memphis on Friday. It's the last of four meetings this season, and the Raptors are trying to salvage a split of the series. Toronto won 113-99 at Cleveland in the first meeting, but the Cavaliers have won the past two contests - 99-98 at Toronto and 103-92 at home. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings.

Philadelphia 76ers at Orlando Magic (+2, 195)

The wheels have totally come off for the Sixers, who have dropped four straight and 11 of their last 12 games to plummet out of contention in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia has dropped 12 straight away from home, its worst skid since losing 20 straight in 1987-88. Orlando is trying to stop a dubious streak of its own, having suffered seven straight losses at home. The Magic were one game below .500 when power forward Glen Davis sustained the first of two injuries. Since that time, the Magic have lost 33 of 38 games. One of their five victories in that stretch came at the expense of the 76ers in Philadelphia on Feb. 26. The over is 5-0 in the Magic’s last five Sunday games.

Indiana Pacers at Miami Heat (-6.5, 190)

The Miami Heat have bulldozed through every team in their path over the past five weeks but they will not lack for motivation when they put their franchise-record 17-game winning streak on the line against the Pacers. The last team to beat the Heat was the Pacers, who have won both matchups against Miami this season, including a 102-89 victory on Feb. 1. The Pacers have limited the Heat to 77 and 89 points in two double-digit home victories this season. Indiana has not allowed 100 points in 11 consecutive games. The Heat are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games while the Pacers are 5-0 ATS in their last five away from home.

Portland Trail Blazers at New Orleans Hornets (+2.5, 196.5)

The Portland Trail Blazers are coming off perhaps their most impressive performance of the season but they cannot afford a misstep when they visit the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday. The Trail Blazers ran roughshod over the Western Conference-leading San Antonio Spurs on Friday, rolling up 136 points in a stunning 30-point romp, and now return to the site of one of their most embarrassing losses, when they were trampled by the Hornets 99-63 on Feb. 13. The Hornets have dropped eight of 10 since drubbing Portland, with the wins both coming at home against two of the league's weaker clubs, Sacramento and Detroit. The Blazers are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Dallas Mavericks at Minnesota Timberwolves (+2.5, 202.5)

The Dallas Mavericks look to keep their postseason hopes alive on Sunday when they continue their four-game road trip against the injury-plagued Minnesota Timberwolves, who have dropped seven of their last eight games. The Timberwolves are down to nine healthy players with forward Andrei Kirilenko (calf) and center Nikola Pekovic (abdominal strain) hoping to return next week. The under is 6-0-1 in Minnesota’s last seven home games.

Milwaukee Bucks at Sacramento Kings (-1.5, 215)

Milwaukee guards Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings combined for 57 points in a 103-93 victory over Golden State on Saturday, pulling the Bucks within two games of seventh-place Atlanta in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Sacramento, which is in the midst of playing five of six games at home, connected on 13 3-pointers in a 121-112 win over Phoenix on Friday. The Kings have made 10 or more 3-pointers in seven of their last nine games. The Bucks are 6-0 ATS in their last six Sunday games.

Detroit Pistons at Los Angeles Clippers (-14, 198)

This is the opener of a three-game homestand for Los Angeles that will include matchups against Memphis and the New York Knicks. Los Angeles has won the past three meetings, including an 88-76 victory at Detroit in December. The Pistons have dropped four straight and seven of eight as they prepare to open a four-game road trip against Western Conference opponents. Detroit coach Lawrence Frank has missed the last two games due to personal reasons and no timetable has been given for his return. The Clippers are 6-0 ATS in their last six vs. Eastern Conference foes.

Sunday, March 10

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bank shots: NBA betting news and notes
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the week of March 3-March 9.

Hottest ATS

Denver Nuggets (4-0 SU, 4-0 ATS)

Denver continues to be a great bet (39-24-1 ATS) as well as a profitable over play (38-26 O/U). The Nuggets have won eight straight games, covering in seven of those contests. Denver visits Phoenix Monday before returning to Pepsi Center for two tough games against the Knicks and Grizzlies.

Coldest ATS

Charlotte Bobcats (0-4 SU, 0-4 ATS)

Charlotte has dropped 10 straight games straight up and ATS, making it great fade material. The Bobcats host the Celtics Tuesday before heading to Toronto for a clash with the Raptors.

Best over play

Orlando Magic (1-3 SU, 3-1 over/under)

The Magic stayed true to their form as a good over play this past week. Orlando has played over the number in six of its last eight to improve its season O/U mark to a very profitable 34-25-4 for its over bettors. The Magic host Philadelphia and Los Angeles (Lakers) early this week before embarking on a four-game road trip.

Best under play

Minnesota Timberwolves (1-2 SU, 0-3 over/under)

The Timberwolves are devastated by injuries and had only nine healthy players on their roster this past week. Star F Kevin Love (hand) is targeting a mid-March return, but the T-Wolves could continue to struggle to score until he's healthy. Minnesota is averaging just 85.3 points per game over its last three games, nearly 10 points lower than its season average (94.7). The Timberwolves host Dallas Sunday and then San Antonio rolls into Minny on Tuesday.

Scouting the schedule:

-The Brooklyn Nets play nine of their next 11 games away from the Barclays Center. The Nets have been a good under play away from home, posting a 10-18-1 O/U mark.

-The Houston Rockets begin a season-long seven-game homestand Wednesday when the Phoenix Suns visit. The Rockets are 18-11 O/U at the Toyota Center.
