1-3 night due to some poooooooooooooooor play calling by the Steelers on multiple occasions which cost us the Boswell prop. Then Buddy Hield was ice cold like the Outkast song and the Bruins didn’t show up. Good news is that it’s Friday and we still have the whole weekend to turn in a winning week. Let’s go.
Sixers ML / Celtics ML / Nuggets ML / Mavs ML (+171)
Great odds on this one tonight!
The Sixers will host the Hawks who will be without their leading scorer Trae Young> The Sixers beat the Hawks 126-116 in the last head to head meeting a few weeks ago and Young was playing in that game. The Hawks have also lost 4 of their last 5.
The Celtics will host the Knicks who they are 2-0 against this season. They won a close 108-104 matchup in New York but then blew them out 114-98 in Boston. Tonight’s game is in Boston and it looks like the Celtics will be getting Porzingis back in the lineup.
The Nuggets will host the Rockets who they just beat 134-124 a little more than a week ago. The Nuggets are returning home from a road trip and they will be happy to be home where they are 9-0 this season. Conversely, the Rockets are 0-8 on the road.
The Mavs will be on the road but they are playing one of the worst teams in the league and the Mavs are coming off of a massive 50 point win where they scored 147 points.
Jayson Tatum Threes Made Over (2.5)
Tatum has gone over 2.5 threes made in both games against the Knicks this season going 3 for 8 in NY and 5 for 12 in the game in Boston.
He’s gone over 2.5 threes made in 7 of his last 9 games against the Knicks and he’s had double digit three point attempts in more than half of those games during that stretch.
The Knicks haven’t been very good defending the three this season, the rank 22 out of 30.
Look for Tatum to go over at home for us.
This play is more about how bad the Jazz have been playing then how good the Clippers have been playing.
The Jazz have lost 3 of their last 4 games and those losses have come by 14, 11, and 50 - no typo on that most recent one 5 - 0!
A big factor tonight will be that the Jazz are definitely without their leading scorer (Markkanen) and potentially their 2nd highest scorer (Clarkson).
The Clippers have been hyping themselves up lately with Harden saying stuff like “just wait until we figure it out” and “it’s going to be scary”
Well they’ve kind of been backing that talk up lately going 7-3 over their last 10 games. 5 of those 7 wins have come by 7 or more points.
Let’s take the Clippers to cover on ESPN tonight.
