We moved to 8-1 on our opinion plays and hold steady at 6-5 on regular plays with our NBA Totals. A decent-sized slate of games today after just a few contests were played on Sunday.
Orlando at Indiana: The Pacers opened a 3-point favorites with a total of 217.5 and the line has moved to Pacers -4 and 216.5. I have the Pacers coming away with a 114-106 victory.
Cleveland at Philadelphia: My, how things have changed, as the 76ers are favored by 2.5 points over the defending Eastern Conference champions and the total has moved from 225 to 224. I have the Cavs coming away with a 111-110 victory, so no real room for error.
Portland at New York: The game is even and the total has climbed several points to 204. I made New York a 106-102 winner, so another game pretty close to the number.
Detroit at Boston: The Celtics opened 6.5 with a total of 199.5 and the game has held pretty steady since the numbers were released. I made Boston a 103-100 winner. The Pistons are on an 0-6-1 run in road games, while the Celtics are on an 11-3 run as a home favorite.
Brooklyn at Houston: The Rockets are hefty 17.5-point favorites and the total has dropped slightly to 226.5. I have the Rockets winning by a 120-110 score. Was tempted to look at the over, but this game could see some garbage time in the fourth quarter with the subs in, which could have an impact on scoring, so will stay away from this one.
Dallas at San Antonio: San Antonio is favored by 9.5 points and the total is a rather low 193.5. I have the Spurs coming away with a 107-92 victory. Dallas is on a 2-9 run. The card is pretty tough tonight, so will go ahead and take a shot on the over for tonight’s opinion play. Will need the Spurs to score their share of points, but think they can.
Sacramento at Golden State: The Warriors are favored by 14 and the total has dropped several points and is down to 207.5 and I have the Warriors winning by a 121-94 final.
Lakers at Clippers: The Clippers are favored by 5 and the total is 213 and I have the Clippers coming away with a 113-98 victory. The Lakers are just 2-8 in their last 10 as a road underdog.
