We moved to 14-1 on our opinion plays Tuesday, with the Trailblazers and Wizards finishing a few points under the total. We’re still at 6-6 on regular plays, although I’ve pretty much blurred the distinction between the two. We have a fairly good-sized slate of games for Wednesday, and a rare time where all of the games on the schedule had the overnight line posted, so we’ll get to it.
Atlanta at Orlando: The Magic are favored by 6 and the total is 218, where I have this one at 103-103. The Hawks are just 4-8 on the road this season, but they are 9-8 after a loss and Orlando is 6-8 following a defeat this season. The Magic are 5-5 at home this season and while not as much as a trend advantage as I’d like, will grab the under for today’s opinion play.
Chicago at Indiana: The Pacers are favored by 9.5 and the total has dropped slightly to 208.5 after opening at 210. I have the Pacers winning 111-99, so pretty close on both the side and the total.
Sacramento at Cleveland: The Cavs are favored by 12.5 with a total of 209 and I have Cleveland winning this one 112-101, so another one pretty close to both the side and total. The Cavs are on a 7-2-1 run in home totals.
Memphis at New York: The Knicks are favored by 2 and the total is 197, while I have New York winning 102-99, so another one right near the lines.
Dallas at Boston: The Celtics are favored by 8.5 with a total of 201.5, which has dropped a bit in a slight reverse line move. I have the Celtics winning 107-97.
Denver at New Orleans: The Pelicans are favored by 5 and the total is 222 and I have New Orleans winning 113-107.
Golden State at Charlotte: The Warriors are favored by 4.5 and the total is 217 and I have the Warriors winning 111-108.
Detroit at Milwaukee: A slight reverse line movement in the total on this one, as Milwaukee is -4 with a total of 204. I have the Pistons winning 101-100.
Miami at San Antonio: The Spurs are favored by 7.5 with a total of 197.5 and I have San Antonio winning 106-95.
Minnesota at LA Clippers: The Timberwolves are favored by 5.5 on the road and the total is at 212.5, while I have this one at 110-110, although it doesn’t take into account the injury to Blake Griffin.
