Los Angeles Clippers vs Los Angeles Lakers 03-04-19

Los Angeles Clippers over Los Angeles Lakers: No travel involved for this game. Yes the crowd will be pro Lakers but it is virtually a home game for both teams. Few factors inflating this line. You will always pay a premium to bet on James and the Lakers based on past reputation. Secondly Lac will play their 4th game in 6 nights. However yesterday was nothing more than a glorified scrimmage as they cruised past Ny. Expectations are Lal bounce back from a bad road loss in Phx however the Lal have been playing badly for awhile. Lal are 3-8 in their last 11.

Portland Trailblazers vs Charlotte Hornets 03-03-19

Portland Trailblazers over Charlotte Hornets: Port is 6-0 ATS on their current road trip. Statistically Charl is a middle to low end eastern team. They are a bubble to make the playoffs. With the acquisitions of Hood and Kanter to add depth Port is rolling. Port is 6th in rod rebounding while Charl is 23rd at home. Port has played the 6th SOS while Charl comes in at 29th. Charl is 4-15 vs. top 10 teams on the year. I have this game at 4.5 giving us excellent value.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs New York Islanders 02-28-19

New York Islanders over Toronto Maple Leafs 1st 60 minutes ONLY: Joint will be jumping tonight with the return of Tavares. However this bet has little to do with that. This game will be the #1 road offense Toronto against the #1 home defense in NYI. Sparks will get the start in net and he is a downgrade to Andersen. In addition the Tor defense will be without Dermott and Gardiner. Tor will play the 4th game in 6 nights. I have this game at 1.24 giving us excellent value.

Detroit Pistons vs San Antonio Spurs 02-27-19

Detroit Pistons over San Antonio Spurs: Det is playing their best basketball of the year. Det is 8-2 s/u in their last 10. Led by the improvement of SG Kennard they are have a legitimate shot at being a low seed in the east playoffs. SA returns limping home from their annual rodeo road trip. They have been home for 2 days since going 1-7 s/u on the trip. The last 2 losses against Ny and Brooklyn.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Columbus Blue Jackets 02-26-19

Columbus Blue Jackets over Pittsburgh Penguins 1st 60 minutes ONLY: Clb has added Duchene,Mcquaid and Dzingel. Bobrovsky is at the top of his game right now. Pitts has cluster injuries on defense specifically Letang and Dumoulin. They added 2 mediocre defensemen at the deadline. None of the above has accurately been reflected in tonight’s line. Look for a high scoring game with Clb pulling away. Murray has not shown the ability to steal a game recently letting in too many soft goals.

Indiana Pacers vs Washington Wizards 02-23-19

Indiana Pacers over Washington Wizards: Two teams with contrasting styles. Ind plays slow and is defensive oriented Wash plays fast and in offensive oriented. Who will win the pace battle will win this game. Both teams played last night both have had to travel for tonight. Beal had 46 in a loss Ind needed a big second half to overcome a 20 point deficit. Matthews was a good pick up for Ind and will help with the loss of Oladipo. Ind is 7-1 s/u in their last 8. Wash has given up 120+ points in their last 4. I have this game at 3.0 giving us excellent value.

San Jose Sharks vs Columbus Blue Jackets 02-23-19

San Jose Sharks over Columbus Blue Jackets 1st 60 minutes ONLY: With the acquisition of Duchene Clb is going for it good for them. Sj is 8-2 in their last 10. It would not surprise anyone if they come out of the west and make the finals. We will rate both teams’ defenses a wash lower end. Sj is ranked 2nd on road offense with Clb comes in at 11 at home offense. Clb is 6-9 when laying top 10 teams while Sj is 9-8. Lastly Clb is in a very difficult spot. They played last night in Ott and now they have an early start today at home less than 24 hours later.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs New Jersey Devils 02-19-19

Pittsburgh Penguins over New Jersey Devils 1st 60 minutes ONLY: Pitts cannot afford to take NJ lightly. Pitts is a bubble team at the moment to make the playoffs. NJ has won the first 3 meetings between these teams. It is very rare that a lesser team sweeps the season series from the better team.  The last meeting 01/28 NJ went into Pitts and won 6-3. I have this game at 1.95 giving us excellent value.

Charlotte Hornets vs Orlando Magic 02-14-19

Orlando Magic over Charlotte Hornets: Orl has won 4 in a row confidence is high as they try and keep it going before the break. Wins recently include Ind, Mil Brkln, and Minn. Charl on the other hand has no quality wins recently. If Walker is on they are tough if he is avg they are a mediocre team at best. CHarl has a big home away dichotomy. Lastly Orl has lost 13 straight to this team and do not think that is not on their mind to end that streak. I have this game at 5.0 giving us excellent value.
