The winers are rolling in at a decent pace and the free picks are 6-0 this week on Twitter if you do follow them. Here are today’s bets.
Minnesota Timberwolves @ Memphis Grizzlies
One team posses one of the deadliest scoring weapons in the NBA right now, whilst the other posses a long injury list and a horrible ATS record on the season. It makes you wonder why the spread is so small here, but the Timberwolves should definitely be favourites and they are. It may prove to be something of a trap, as the Grizzlies are averring 97ppg over their last few and they’re finding ways to inflict some of their toughness in the paint without the likes of the injured Gasol and Allen. The Timberwolves’ Love scored 42 points and dominated the boards against the Spurs (despite losing) and they are averaging 105.7 points per game this season. What’s worrying for Memphis is that they’re 3-7 ATS since Gasol went down injured and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 at home, which has to the worst record in the NBA when considering teams capable of making the playoffs.
Portland Trailblazers @ Detroit Pistons
The Pistons are a hard one to put a total on recently. Their totals started to low and they sen to have their on and off night, but they’re capable of playing whatever style they want. Recently they some more than happy to play higher tempo games because their big guys are giving them so many second chance points on rebounds and picking up lose shots from the opposition, so they’re forming a nice balance. They certainly aren’t good enough to shutdown Portland however, so I think they settle for the up-tempo free scoring game and hope their size wins the battle against the Blazers speed. The Over is 19-6 when the Pistons are on one day of rest, 5-0 in their last 5 home games. The Over is also 4-0 on 0 days of rest for Portland and the Over is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. The most consistent trend is that of Portland’s last 60 games, 41 have gone over. This team just plays fluent and dangerous Basketball.
