Daily Message:

We are coming from a 7-2 night in our "main plays" for another terrific day in the NBA! We had (an unquestionable) some luck in hitting our Triple Play Dime at a line of 204.5 points and probably there were some of you that got a push or even a loss. I've just reviewed that game and I missed a bit my pace projection for that game, bottom line the game had an inferior pace when compared to my projection. Nevertheless just a brief note to say that all my released lines are from top rated A+ sportsbooks (Bookmaker, The Greek, 5 Dimes or Pinnacle)! We are now +62.35 units for the season and an amazing +99.95 units in this month (using a 1-2-3 units MM: +20.77un & +37.85un!). Others streaks: 17-3-1 L21 NBA plays or 85-46 L131 NBA plays!

For today we have a card of 7 games to work. I'm working on the card right now so the next update will be released soon, thanks. 


  • Final Update: 5 plays for tonight - one Double Dime Play!



Injury report: Rajon Rondo is doubtful; Daniel Gibson is probable; Drew Gooden is questionable; Andrea Bargnani is out; Dirk Nowitzki is doubtful; Marcus Camby is questionable; Carmelo Anthony and Al Harrington are questionable.

 

FREE PLAY: 

NBA - 503 Orlando Magic @ 504 Cleveland Cavaliers

***SINGLE DIME PLAY***

Projected line: Orlando by 10 points

I understand that this isn’t a favorable spot for the Orlando Magic tonight. After all, this is will be a back to back game for them on the road, their 6th game in just 9 days and they are coming from facing really top teams prior to this b2b series (Atlanta, Dallas, San Antonio and Boston). Bottom line, this would be a perfect letdown spot for the Magic!

However I just don’t bite in that…

There is one thing called “momentum” in the NBA and the Magic are just rolling right now with their new roster and their new rotations. It would have been easy for them to overlook the Nets last night but they just dominated them in 3 straight quarters. It was a perfect team effort game as no Magic player logged more than 33 minutes and even Dwight Howard had to battle foul trouble early on the game. With no shot-blocker in the game to protect the rim area, Devin Harris enjoyed a good offensive game (9-15 FG and 5-6 FT’s for 24 points) by driving the ball with impunity and managed to either finish insider or draw a foul. Suddenly the Nets had an outstanding 44 points in the paint and 18 fast break points but still the Magic won by 16 points!

This play is all about the huge matchups problems that the Magic have against the Cavaliers.

Do you remember when Lebron James was a Cavalier, the tremendous problems that the Cavs had to stop Dwight Howard!? The Magic knocked off the Cavs two years ago in the Eastern Conference Finals with Howard being the MVP of that series! Guess what, Howard is still with the Magic and the Cavaliers frontcourt is basically the same so there is no Cavs' player capable of slowing down Dwight Howard.

Also the Cavaliers have been playing with a 3-guard rotation with Mo Williams, Gibson and Parker. Gibson didn’t play in the last game due to flu-like symptoms but he is probable for tonight. This is really a “smallish” Cavaliers backcourt and they have been killed when there are size mismatches in any particular position at PG, SG or SF.

For example, Michael Beasley (he plays at SF for the Wolves) torched them in the last game by scoring a game high 28 points in the last game. Against the Hawks, Joe Johnson and Josh Smith combined to shot 17-31 from the field! For tonight, the Magic features a 6’10’’ SF in Hedo Turkoglu and he has been an instant X factor for the Magic! Hedo had a truly amazing +30 team points line against the Celtics – in other words, when he was on the floor, the Magic outscored the Celtics by 30 points! Last night Turkoglu shot 8-13 FG and had 5 assists & 7 boards!

The Cavaliers is coming from a disheartening home loss against the Wolves. They had the lead 91-81 with 5 minutes left but allowed a 6-17 to the Wolves to end the game. It’s tough to say but the Cavs made a really solid performance but still lost the game against the…Wolves! They held the Wolves to 38.8% FG and they shot a great (for them it was great) 46% from the field but it wasn’t enough!

In a motivational standpoint, the Cavaliers are just broken right now while the Magic is just in their best moment of the season. With the matchups dictating a huge edge for Orlando, I’m taking them tonight for a double digits win.
