The Brooklyn Nets finally end the long losing streak to the Milwaukee Bucks, as they break the 13 game losing streak vs Milwaukee, with an overtime win at home, as Joe Johnson hits a shot at the buzzer for a 2 pt win. They play again tonight, in Milwaukee. Tonight will be for my long term & seasonal subscribers only. I will be back later with a Free Play, and it will again be one of our paid client plays. We cashed our Free paid play in my #thread yesterday. All the best to everyone tonight.
Wednesday FREE NBA (2*) Play
Indiana -3.5 vs NY Knicks (185.5)
This is the 3rd meeting between these clubs this season, with both teams winning on their home floor. NY won 88-76 as 7 pt favs, back on Nov. 18th. Indiana won 81-76 as 5.5 pt favs, 4 weeks ago. The Knicks are playing just their 3rd ROAD game in the L/25 days, and they are losers of 3 of their L/4 SU & ATS prior to the all-star break. Indiana lost 2 of 3 before the break, 2 of them HOME overtime losses, to Toronto and Brooklyn. Even with those 2 recent HOME losses, the Pacers are one of the leagues best HOME teams (21-5 SU & 16-10 ATS). The Knicks are just 1-5 ATS L/6 games vs teams with a winning record, while the Pacers are 5-1 ATS L/6 vs teams with a win% of .600 or higher. Pretty even split ticket count wise on this game, with the public slightly backing the Knicks. I definitely lean to the Pacers at home here.
Oklahoma City -3 AT Houston (219)
The ol' in season double revenge going for the Rockets tonight, as OKC has boat raced them twice this season. A 120-98 beating at OKC as 11.5 pt favs on Nov. 28th & a 124-94 smashing at Houston as 4.5 pt favs 7 weeks ago. The Thunder have absolutely owned them on the boards in the 2 meetings, a combined (99-74) edge. The Thunder actually lost 2 straight games before the all-star break, AT the Jazz and a 10 pt home loss to Miami. The Rockets are back home, as they dropped 2 of 3 on the road before the break. They have run off 4 straight HOME wins, and all by at least 13 pts (Gold St, Charl, Port, and Brooklyn). The Rockets have been HOME DOGS just 4 times this season, and they are (1-3 SU & ATS). Oklahoma City has been ROAD FAVS of -3.5 or less 6 times this season, and they are (2-4 ATS). Of course the Rockets have been on a OVER tear, and the OVER is 9-0 L/9 Rockets HOME games vs teams with a winning road record. I lean to the Rockets and the OVER here.
LA Lakers -7 vs Boston (194.5)
Talk about a "spot" that SCREAMS one side, and we have it here with the LA Lakers. Of course we all know that this will be an emotionally game for the Lakers, as legend and long time team owner Jerry Buss just passed away & this is the Lakers 1st game since his passing. Add on the fact that the Celtics absolutely smashed these Lakers at Boston just 13 days ago (116-95) as1.5 pt favs. Add on the fact that the Celtics had to play last night AT Denver, while the Lakers were off. Early money moved this number off of -6.5 and to the semi-key NBA number of "7". Early sharp $$ also has moved the total down 2 pts. Boston is just (1-5 SU & 2-4 ATS L/6) ROAD games, their lone road win over this span, was a 4 pt win at the Raps. Boston has been 7pt road dogs or more just 4 times this season (2-2 ATS). The Lakers had their 4 game HOME winning streak snapped their last game before the break, as the Clippers boat raced them (125-101). The Lakers have not shown the ability to cover this large of a number at home recently, as they are just (2-7 ATS L/9) HOME games of 7 pt favs or more. The Underdog is (4-1 ATS L/5) in this series. I lean to the UNDER here.
