Yesterday was a slap in the face but still 6-4 on the week. Let’s get back to winning tonight.
Sixers ML / Stats ML (-106)
The Sixers will face the Pacers who have really been struggling without Haliburton in the lineup and he’s out again tonight. They are just 2-5 over their last 7 games.
The Sixers continue to roll on a 6 game winning streak and they’ve been scoring a lot of points (averaging 120 ppg) which should continue tonight against the Pacers 2nd worst defense in the league. Maxey dropped 50 on them earlier this season and Embiid had 39 against them. Embiid is coming off of a 70 point game.
The Pacers offense has struggled as well being limited to 110 or less points in 3 of their last 5.
The Stars will be home against a 16-30-1 Ducks team that has one of the worst goal differentials in the league at -42.
The Stars have been a good team at home and on the road this season and they already beat the Ducks once. The Stars will have Oettinger in net tonight as well which is good for us.
Good value here for two big favorites.
Timberwolves Over (109.5)
THe Timberwolves will be on the second night of a back to back but this number is low and back to backs haven’t bothered them this season, they’ve gone over 4 out of 4 back to backs with point totals of 115, 118, 120, & 118.
They have gone over 109.5 in 7 of their last 9 and they’ve averaged 113.5 ppg this season
They will take on the Nets who have played a few low scoring games recently but they are a middle of the pack defensive team and I expect the TWolves to go over 109.5.
Same Game Parlay
Derrick White 2+ Threes / Jayson Tatum 20+ Points / Celtics ML (-110)
White has hit 2+ Threes in 14 straight games against the Heat!
Tatum has scored 20+ in 9 of his last 12 games against them (75%)
The Celtics beat the Heat in their first matchup against them this season with a final score of 119-111. The Heat are on the second night of a back to back and lost to the shorthanded Grizzlies. Miami has lost 4 in a row and have been held to less than 100 points in 3 of those 4. That’s not going to cut it against Boston.
OR (I suggest playing the SGP above OR the White prop below but not both)
Derrick White Threes Over (2.5)
Love this line at +105 odds tonight.
White has gone over 2.5 threes made in 7 of his last 8 games against the Heat dating back to last season’s Eastern Conference Finals.
White went 5 for 7 from three in the first game against the Heat of this season on 10/27.
He’s hit 3+ threes in 4 of his last 5 games overall and 8 of his last 10 “big” games. The Cs are favored by 7.5 but tonight is a “big” game for them because the Heat beat them in the ECF last year.
