4 Units – #513 – Memphis (-4) over Dallas *8:30 EST
Smells like a set up line but I just do not see it. Dalllas is 0-4 and though at home, these two teams have had 2 common opponents and Memphis was a dog in both and won outright (Houston and Golden State) and Dallas got blown out. Memphis’s offense is steady and they pass the ball around well. Ther Mavs lost to Sacrmaneto and Atlanta too, Sacramento at home (wow) and are scoring just 94 ppg and allowing 112. The Mavs are 0-4 ATS their last 4 games and in their last 5 home games they are 0-5 ATS.
Play 4 Units on Memphis
7-Unit Play. Take #503 Houston (-3.5) over Philadelphia (7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 25)
The 76ers are coming off their first win of the season at Detroit. But this is still one of the weaker teams in the Eastern Conference. They are just 1-3 and going back to last year they are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games. Houston is 3-1 straight up but they are coming off their first loss of the season and will want to bounce back after falling to Memphis. This Rockets team already beat Golden State on the road to start the season and I think they can take care of the 76ers. The Rockets have won seven straight in this series and haven’t lost to the 76ers since 2013. Houston is 5-2 ATS in its last seven road games and the 76ers are 0-6 ATS in their last six home games. This should be a close game for the first half. But Houston will pull away in the second and the 76ers won’t be able to keep up. Lay the points.
7-Unit Play. #505. Take Denver Nuggets -2 over Charlotte Hornets (Wednesday @ 7:05pm est)
We roll with the Nuggets here in what could be a very nice spot for them. This is a Nugget team that comes off a loss in their last game against the Wizards in a game they were favored at home and expected to win by the oddsmakers and they fell short. The Wizards did not look ahead to the Lakers and got it done. But, this is a game the Nuggets can get some revenge if you will as they were swept by the Hornets last year if you remember in both in Charlotte and in Denver. So, the Nuggets are wiser, older and more mature and will definitely want some revenge here. Plus, remember, the Nuggets desperately want to make the playoffs this year and to show some improvement and this team has to win against middle of the road Eastern Conference Teams because the west is very difficult to win games on a nightly basis. The Nuggets roll in to this game, off a loss, with revenge and facing a Hornet team that is 26th in the league in offense and whose only win is against the lowly Hawks. The Nuggets are 13th in the league in field goal percentage and 7th in the league in defense that probably makes the difference today. Let’s move to 8-1 on the year for +$4000 as we are on record pace this NBA Season as there is a reason why we are the #1 NBA Service in America having posted +$33,400 in profit for 4 straight winning years.
