NBA Totals Plays 12/01/17

Last Updated: 2017-12-01

We moved to 10-1 on our opinion plays, but still just 6-6 on regular plays, heading into a decent-sized schedule of games tonight.

Detroit at Washington: A little bit of reverse line movement on the total in this one, as Detroit is -1 and the total is 205.5 after opening at 206 and seeing nearly 80% of the bets come in on the over. I have the Pistons winning 106-104, so will be staying away from this one.

Golden State at Orlando: The Warriors are favored by 11 and the total is 228 and I have Golden State winning 115-104. The Magic have seen their last five games go over the total, but the total did drop two points from its opening 230. The Warriors are 5-9-1 this season after a victory and the Magic are 5-3 after a win.

Indiana at Toronto: The Raptors are favored by 7.5 and the total is up to 217.5 after opening several points lower. I have Toronto winning 116-108.

Minnesota at Oklahoma City: The Thunder are favored by 5.5 and the total is down to 209.5 after opening at 211. I have the Thunder winning 112-109. Minnesota is on a 9-3 totals run when made underdogs. The Thunder are 4-7-1 after a victory, however, and the Timberwolves are 3-9 after a win.

San Antonio at Memphis: The Spurs are favored by 3.5 and the total is down to 192. I have the Spurs winning 92-90, so will take the under as an opinion play, as the Spurs are an 0-4 road run and the Grizzlies are 2-9 in their last 11 home games. San Antonio is 4-9 after a victory this season and the Grizzlies are 4-8 after a loss so a bit more support for the play, but never easy to take the under with such a low total.

Sacramento at Chicago: This ugly game is even and the total is 196, while I have the Bulls coming away with a 101-91 victory. The Bulls did play at Denver last night, however, and always tricky dealing with those types of situations.

Charlotte at Miami: The Heat are favored by 2 and the total is 202, while I have Miami taking a 107-105 victory.

New Orleans at Utah: The Pelicans are favored by 3 and the total is down to 205.5 after opening 207.5. I have Utah winning 99-94. The Jazz are 2-2 in back-to-back sports this season.
