We moved to 44-32 for the season on Saturday, as neither Dallas or Denver managed a lot of offense, but still have a ways to go to get back to the same profit we had earlier. We have seven games on today’s schedule, although none of them are games that you’re likely to alter your Sunday plans for in order to be in front of the television.

Phoenix at Houston: The Rockets are favored by 13.5 and the total is 227, while I made this one 121-108 for the home team. The rockets are on an 0-6-1 overall run, but are 7-2 in their last nine as home favorites. The Suns are 12-19 after a loss, while the Rockets have posted an 8-4 mark after a loss.

Milwaukee at Chicago: The Bucks are favored by 2 and the total has jumped three points to 217, although the betting patterns don’t quite justify such a large move. I made this one 103-102 for the Bulls, but we have conflicting trends so will look elsewhere.

Clippers at New Orleans: The Pelicans are favored by 2.5 and the total is 228 and holding despite an overwhelming number of bets on the under, which no doubt have a lot to do with DeMarcus Cousins. I have this one 112-112 but will stay away from the Pelicans for at least a game or two to see how they fare, as both teams are in some big over trends.

Lakers at Toronto: The Raptors are favored by 10.5 with a total of 217.5, while I made this one 115-102 for Toronto. The Raptors are 1-8 in their last nine games as a home favorite and 8-6 following a loss. Toronto is 4-3 when favored by double digits, while the Lakers are 4-5 when getting 10 or more points and 10-8 after a win.

Detroit at Cleveland: The Cavs are favored by 7.5 and the total is 217, while I have this one 108-105 for Cleveland. The Cavs are 12-14-1 after a win, while Detroit is 6-17-1 after a loss. The number opened at 215.5 and has climbed despite even betting, but will go ahead and take the game under the total for today’s play.

Philadelphia at Oklahoma City: The Thunder are favored by 3.5 and the total is 214.5, while I have OKC winning 110-108.

Sacramento at San Antonio: The Spurs are favored by 11 and the total has jumped up to 195.5, while I have the Spurs winning 103-93. San Antonio is in several different under situations.
