NBA Friday – Suns > Mavs

61-53-2 on NBA in 2018 up 9.28 units

14-15-2 on NBA this season down 4.21 units

The Suns have 5 wins on the season and it is almost Christmas. 2 of those wins are against the Mavs. C’mon Dallas. Dirk played last night, so he officially has the record of 21 seasons with one team. He made a long range bank shot last night and Mark Cuban looked happier than Jerry Sandusky at a youth football game.. sorry that wasn’t PC. Looked happier than a catholic priest at an orphan– never mind. He was happy for Dirk. You get it.

Hornets first half -5 at -115 for 3 units. Hornets have won 3 in a row and are going for their longest win streak of the season tonight at home against the Knicks. Charlotte has already lost to 3 lottery teams this season (Hawks, Cavs, and Bulls). They can’t keep losing these games if they want to make the playoffs. Hornets won the first half by 14 against the Knicks when they played 5 days ago. Kemba struggled at the start of his last game against the Pistons, but he finished strong and I expect that to carry over in this first half.

Raptors at -131 for 3 units. Raptors are 7-3 in their last 10. Blazers are 3-7. Raptors just beat the Clippers and Warriors without Kawhi. Kyle Lowry got going finally against Golden State. He had been struggling this year, but if he can turn it on.. watch out Eastern Conference. Blazers do play better at home, but I doubt Kawhi came out on this 3 game west coast road trip to not play. He is questionable tonight, but I think he plays and this line will go down. Taking the value.

Wizards at +107 for 3 units. Nets are 3-7 in their last 10. Wizards are 5-5. Wizards are 4-11 on the road, but the Nets are 4-10 at home. Both of these teams are below average is what I am saying. Caris LeVert being out has hurt Brooklyn, as he was balling before his injury. The Wizards seem to play down or up to their competition, but I’ll take the team with Beal and Wall.

Bucks/Warriors Parlay risking 3 units to win 1.54 units. Warriors are 13-16 ATS this season, even though I like the -7.5 they are laying, I am taking the money line. The Kings are 17-9-1 ATS this season. Buddy Hield has been playing great. The Pelicans could really use a 3-point shooter like him… Warriors arn’t going to lose two in a row with their big 4 playing.. right? The Bucks have cooled off a little bit after starting off the season 13-4. They are 18-9 now. The Cavs have won 5 of their 7 games at home this season, but Giannis and the Bucks beat them by 16 in their first meeting in Milwaukee. Milwaukee scores 118.1 PPG compared to Cleveland’s 103.4 PPG. Kevin Love and Thompson are still out. Bucks know they have lost 10 of their last 11 in Cleveland. They get revenge on the Cavs for having Lebron..

Soccer Friday – Leganes at Celta Vigo

79-61-7 on Soccer since World Cup up 20.21 units

Celta Vigo at -115 for 4 units. Celta Vigo have won back 2 back games. Leganes will be missing two starting midfielders due to card suspensions (Ruben Perez and Allan Nyom). Leganes also has a long list of injury concerns; whereas, Celta are one of the healthiest teams in La Liga. Iago Aspas has found his form again and is La Liga’s top Spanish goal scorer with 10 goals. Leganes have struggled on the road this season scoring only 7 goals in 8 matches. 4 of those away goals were against relegation candidate Valladolid, which was the only away win for Leganes this season. Maximiliano Gómez González has found some form for Vigo as well. Vigo has the homefield, a healthier squad, better attacking options, and better form. I think this line should be around -200 so I am playing it.
