NBA Tips – 12th February

Don’t forget the early games in the NBA today including the Cavs trip to the TD Garden. I have the Celtics taking care of business.

NBA Feature Previews

1. Dallas @ Houston (11:05am)
If the Rockets win their next two games against the Mavs and Timberwolves they will claim top spot in the standings by virtue of the tiebreak they hold over the Warriors. The Wolf says they will walk their way to victory in this one and rates the Unders as good a bet as we will get over the next week. The Under is 6-3 in the last 9 Mavs games when they are on the second of a back to back, not to mention 6-1 in their last 7 against the Rockets. The Rockets will build an insurmountable lead by the end of the third, and as we have seen so often this season there will be no more than 40 points in the final quarter of a Rockets game. Under is 10-4 in Rockets last 14 and 8-1 in their last 9 when facing West teams. Unders!
Tip: Under 216.5 points ($1.91)

2. Sacramento @ Minnesota (11:05am)
This may look a big line but the Timberwolves have been nothing but money at home! They are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 at home and have made light work of bad sides, going 5-0 ATS in their last 5 at home to teams with a losing record. As we have come to learn, the Kings hate playing West teams. They are 3-15 ATS in their last 18 against fellow conference sides and have a growing list of double digit losses to them. The Timberwolves will build a big lead early and it will continue to grow. They could win by more than 20.
Tip: Minnesota -13 ($1.92)

3. Utah @ Portland (1:35pm)
The Jazz win streak now stands at 8 and The Wolf is licking his lips at the fact that they are getting several points start for their trip to Portland. They are 7-1 ATS during the streak to go with a 6-0 ATS record in their last 6 road games against teams with a winning home record. Rubio is averaging 21 pts, 8 ast and 5 reb in his last 5 while making multiple 3’s in 5 of his last 7. In addition Aussie Joe Ingles shooting almost 45% from beyond the arc – 4th best in NBA. The Blazers have lost 3 of their last 4 at home and the Jazz will be making it 4 in their last 5. The win streak to continue.
Tip: Utah +3 ($1.92)
