GoodFellas NBA Notes Sunday, March 8th, 2009

Orlando @ Boston

-This is the 3rd meeting between these teams this season, as Boston has won both games. Boston won at Boston 17-88 as 8.5 pt favorites on Dec. 1st & they won at Orlando 90-80 as 4.5 pt dogs on Jan. 22nd. So Orlando has double revenge going for them today-

-Boston has won 3 of their L/4 & are coming off a big home win over Cleveland on Friday night, but Boston is just 3-7 ATS their L/10 games following a SU win-

-Orlando has won 3 straight & 4 of their L/5 games & they are coming off a 3 ot home win over New Jersey on Friday night. Orlando is 10-2 ATS as underdogs this season & they are 5-2 ATS L/7 road games vs a team with a home win% of .600 or higher.-

-Boston is 1-5 ATS L/6 home games & they are also 1-7 ATS L/8 games on 1 day of rest-

Phoenix @ San Antonio

-These teams have met 3 times this season, with the Spurs winning 2 of the 3 games. Phoenix won at SA 103-98 as 1 pt dogs on Oct. 29th & San Antonio won at PHX 91-90 as 3 pt dogs & SA won at PHX again 114-104 as 1.5 pt dogs on Jan. 29th.-

-San Antonio is just 2-3 SU their L/5 games, & they are coming off a 22 pt blowout home win over the Wizards on Friday. San Antonio is 4-0 ATS L/4 games vs teams with a losing road record & the Spurs are also 8-3 ATS L/11 games vs a team with a winning SU record-

-Phoenix has lost 3 straight games, all on their current 4 game road trip that comes to a end after today's Spurs game. Phoenix is coming off a 4 pt loss at Houston on Friday, & today is their 4th road game in 6 days.-

-Phoenix is 1-4 ATS L/5 road games vs a team with a home win% of .600 or higher & PHX is also 3-8 ATS L/11 games vs teams with a win% above .600-

New York @ New Jersey

-This is just the 2nd meeting between these teams this season, as New York beat New Jersey 121-109 at New Jersey as 7.5 pt dogs back on Dec. 10th, so NJ has revenge on their mind tonight-

-New York is just 1-4 SU their L/5 games & are coming off a 9 pt home loss to the Bobcats last night. NY is 5-2 ATS L/7 games on zero days rest & the Knicks are 4-5 ATS as a road dog of .5 to 4.5 this season-

-New Jersey has lost 3 of their L/4 games, but they covered the spread in all 3 losses (losses to New Orleans, Boston, & Orlando) including a 3 pt loss at Orlano on Friday night.-

-NJ is 4-1 ATS L/5 home games vs a team with a losing record & NJ is also 6-0 ATS L/6 games as a favorite of .5 to 4.5-

Philadelphia @ Oklahoma City

-Philly won the only meeting between these two teams, with a 110-85 beatdown at Philly as 10.5 pt favs back on Nov. 15th, so Oklahoma City should be pretty up for this game tonight-

-Philly is coming off a 5 pt win at Memphis last night & the 76ers are just a half game behind Detroit for the 6th seed in the race for playoff positioning in the Eastern Conference, but Philly is just 2-8 ATS their L/10 games overall-

-Oklahoma City had a 3 game winning streak snapped by the Hornets last night, as NO blew them out 108-90 at New Orleans. Oklahoma City is 10-1 ATS L/11 games following a ATS loss & they are also 15-3-1 ATS thier L/19 home games & 12-2-1 ATS L/15 games vs the Eastern Conference-

-Philly is 2-6-2 ATS L/10 games vs a team with a losing record & Philly is 1-6 ATS L/7 games after scoring 100 or more pts in their previous game.-
