18-16-1 on NBA in 2017 up 7.22 units
12-8 on NBA in 2018 up 2.22 units
Took a little break from the NBA, but I’m back.
Warriors ML at -200 for 3 units. Cavs and been in a drought and just are not as good the Warriors. Green and Durant will want to continue to get the best of Lebron. The Cavs have one of the worst defenses in the league and it won’t be fixed overnight. Thought this line would be closer to -300 so I am taking what I perceive as value here.
Pistons -3 for 3 units. This Pistons team just poses matchup problems for the Hornets. Howard can’t have his way in the paint with Drummond there. Kemba has not been playing all that well and Avery Bradley is a good defensive counter to Kemba’s offense. Hornets are 5-13 on the road and the Pistons are 13-5 at home. This is a 12:30 game which throws a little wrench into the betting angle, but I still like the Pistons in this spot. Hornets defense is just not what it has been in years past. Michael Carter Williams gets way too many minutes for the Hornets and should not be in the NBA. Batum has not played well this season either. If Tobias Harris shoots a little better than he did last game this will cover.
Knicks +3 for 3 units. Knicks have already beat the Nets twice this year. Nets have been playing better, but Knicks know they have to win these type of games if they want to make the playoffs. The Nets are bad enough on defense to let the Knicks get out of the slump they have been in recently. Porzingis should take over this game with some help from Tim Hardaway Jr. I predict a 5 point victory for the Knicks.
