Good afternoon! Here are my NBA simulation picks for tonight's games.
Pelicans/Celtics o214.5 (-110)
The Celtics haven't lost since Christmas break! They had a nice 7 day vacation since the last time we bet them against the Sixers over in London. I think a lot of people are sleeping on the Pelicans tonight and I think that will cost them a few dollars. Anthony Davis averaged 30.5 points and 15.5 rebounds in their last two meetings and I expect him to have another huge game for the Pelicans. Look for this game to be a lot closer than what the spread is representing. I have this game handicapped well into the 220-225 point range. Over is 8-3-1 in Celtics last 12 vs. NBA Southwest.
Timberwolves/Magic o217.5 (-110)
The Timberwolves are on a 5 game winning streak and have been scoring over 117 points a game during this span. They face a Magic team tonight that is on a 7 game losing streak and has given up over 119.2 points in their last 5 games. These two teams played twice last year and both of the games went Over the posted total. The Over is also 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Orlando. I personally have this game handicapped into the 227-230 point range.
Mavericks/Nuggets Under 210 (-110)
What will I get from the Nugget's offense tonight? They look freaken horrible right now and simply offensively challenged. The lack of points have led the Nugget's games to go Under the posted in four of their last 5 games. I personally had this handicapped at 204 points so I believe we are getting a great number to bet against.
Suns/Trailblazers Under 216.5 (-110)
I'm seeing this total continue to drop while the number of bets continue to come in on the Over for this game. I believe what we are seeing is an example of some reverse line movement. I'm following the line movement tonight so I'm taking the Under. The Under is 11-5 in their last 16 meetings in Portland. My models and system have this game handicapped at 208 points.
Best of luck!
