NBA December 21st

16-10-1 in the NBA up 16.35 units

Raptors -3 for 3 units. Raptors have been a good away team all year. 76ers are giving up over 109 points a game, which is not a good recipe against this hot Raptors team that put up 129 against the Hornets last time out. Toronto is 9-1 in their last 10 and the 76ers are 2-8. Seems like this line should be at 5 or 6, people giving the 76ers a little too much credit on their home floor.

Spurs -3 for 3 units. Spurs have won 3 in a row, Jazz have lost 3 in a row. Jazz need Donovan Mitchell and it appears they won’t have him for this game. Jazz do play a lot better at home, but the Spurs will look to get this 3-game road trip started off with a win. Even if Mitchell does play, he won’t be 100%. I think the Spurs bench will win this bet and the game for the Spurs. Pop is getting his players back from injury so his rotations will be more of what we are used to seeing from the Spurs.

Cavs -10 for 3 units. Cavs are 11-20 against the spread this year and the Bulls are 17-12 against the spread this year. Think both of these numbers start moving towards the mean tonight. The Cavs are great at home, having won 11 straight in The Land. Both teams are relatively hot, but the Cavs could not do enough to get past the Bucks. Bulls have not been beat since Mirotic returned from being punched in the face by Bobby Portis. Portis still has one of my favorite college highlight tapes.
