NETS (+7) over Clippers
After a rough start to the season, the Nets are actually starting to play decent basketball. They’re 12-3 ATS in their last 15 and 4-2 straight up in their last six. The last five times the Nets have hosted the Clippers, they’ve won every game and covered every game. The Clips have been one of the best teams to bet against all season and they’ve had a look to them like they’re a team just going through the motions, waiting for the playoffs.
HORNETS (-2.5) over Celtics
I’ll be honest, this one is based more on gut feel. Celts have covered six straight, but they just went to double OT with the wounded Warriors last night and it was a somewhat emotional loss. Hornets slapped the Grizz last night and they’re 10-3 at home.
PISTONS-Pacers over 201
Pacers average more points (105) on the road than at home and the Pistons average significantly more at home (102) than on the road. Indiana’s gone over in seven of their last ten and Detroit’s gone over in five of their last seven. The over has it in seven of the last ten matchups between these two teams.
Spurs (-3) over HAWKS
The Master (Pop) versus his disciple (Budz) has gone the master’s way on the first five occasions. The Spurs have actually beat the Hawks ten straight times and covered seven of those. Spurs are 10-5 ATS in their last 15 road games.
