NBA Totals Plays 2/1/18

Last Updated: 2018-02-01

We fell to 44-34 on Wednesday as we enter February with a rather small five-game slate, with a decent-looking game between the Rockets and Spurs, along with several other pretty good games for such a small schedule.

Toronto at Washington:
The Raptors are favored by 3.5 and the total has climbed slightly to 214. Toronto opened as 4-point favorites and have gotten the vast majority of wagers, so slight reverse action towards the Wizards. I made this one 108-107 for the Raptors, who have gone 9-2 in their last 11 road games and are 16-17 after a win, while the Wizards have posted a 9-18 totals record after a win.

Memphis at Detroit: The Pistons are favored by 8.5 and the total is 203, while I have Detroit winning 98-95. The Grizzlies are on a 6-1 road run, however, and the Pistons are 12-9-1 after a victory, so conflicting trends right out of the gate.

Houston at San Antonio: The Rockets are favored by 1.5 and the total has dropped to 209.5, while I have Houston winning 107-102. Several players are listed as questionable here, which could explain a portion of the reverse line move. The teams plaed a 124-109 game earlier this season despite neither shooting 50% from the field, so the Spurs definitely let the Rockets dictate the pace of that one. Houston has actually been a decent defensive team on the road this season for the most part, but have tailed off a little the past few weeks, but have still been on a decent under run as of late. The Rockets are 14-19-2 following a win and the Spurs are 11-22 after a win, so will have to take the under in this one.

Milwaukee at Minnesota:
The Timberwolves are favored by 6 and the total has dropped all the way down to 208.5 after opening at 212.5. Bledsoe is out for Milwaukee. I made this one 107-101 for Minnesota and the Bucks are 0-5-1 in their last six on the road.

Oklahoma City at Denver:
The Thunder are favored by 1.5 and the total has shot up to 217, which is a move of 5 points from the opening 212. I made this one 110-103 in favor of the home team, so not sure what to think of the jump. Denver is 3-9 in their last 12 at home and 6-14 in their last 20 overall, so will be staying away from this one, as there’s a bit of uncertainty.
