Timberwolves vs. Rockets- Rockets -11,O/U 230.5
The Timberwolves face off against the banged up Houston Rockets tonight as the first game on the Slate. The spread is -11 for the Rockets and it is way to big of a spread for me as the injuries also the inability to defend throughout there games. Timberwolves are missing Karl-Anthony Towns and the Rockets are day-to-day with Clint Capela. although the Rockets don’t have a big injury report they have a lot of players battling small minor injuries that will effect their game. This matchup leans far toward the Rockets straight up for me but i can’t bet 11 points for the spread which has me leaning hard to bet the Timberwolves +11 tonight. O/U is set at 230.5 and i would bet the Over 230.5 as the Rockets can score but can defend.
Lakers vs. OKC- OKC -6.5, O/U 213
The Hot LA Lakers face up against the Powerhouse underdog in OKC tonight. Lakers are 7-0 in the last 7, OKC just defeated the Rockets while keeping them under 100 points. I say OKC is an underdog and i believe they have it wrong to favor them in this match up as i think a hot team is better than a complete team that is performing average on offense. The Lakers are banged up while having Lebron, AD and Danny Green all Day to Day. Lebron will play and Danny Green will play aswell but i cant say fro sure with AD as he sat out the last game with his injury. In this Match up i will be taking the Lakers as an underdog spread at +6.5, I also debated the Over 213 as I think its unrealistic for OKC to keep this Lakers team under 100 points even if OKC wins.
Bucks vs. Trail Blazers- Bucks -5.5, O/U 228.5
The Bucks are a serious force in the league this year once again and i think the Trail Blazers are underwhelming at best. Dame is still doing Dame things with help from McCullum but they aren’t getting much help from anywhere else. For the Bucks to be favored so little in this match up is mind boggling for me. Injuries are mostly off the bench in this match up and no big names i would concern myself with. I am loving the small spread of -5.5 with the Bucks tonight and if need be i would look at the Under 228.5 as i think with the defense in this one is a little too high.
