NBA Feature Previews

1. Washington @ Orlando (12:35pm)
With both franchises misses key players it is hard to see how they will keep the scoreboard ticking over. The Under is 13-6 in the Wizards last 19 following a ATS win which matches up nicely with the Magic’s 8-3 Under record in their last 11 at home. The Under is also 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Orlando making the set total much higher than it should be. Unders!
Tip: Under 213.5 points ($1.91)

2. Houston @ Cleveland (12:35pm)
The Rockets have returned to their defensive best over the last week, holding their last 3 opponents to an average of just 100 points. Their most recent win in San Antonio was impressive to say the least, something that cannot be said about the Cavs. LeBron and co are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 when on 2 days rest. They remain last in defensive efficiency and that is bad news against the offensive juggernaut that is the Rockets. Take Houston at the line – it is today’s best bet!
Tip: Houston -2.5 ($1.92)

3. Golden State @ Denver (1:05pm)
This has the makings of a real upset. The Warriors find themselves in one of the toughest cities, Denver, and do so on the second of a back to back. Altitude is sure to play it’s part and with the Nuggets on an ideal 1 day rest The Wolf cannot get enough of them. Denver are coming off a super win over the Thunder with the Celtics the only team to beat them in their last 5 home games. That loss came by a single point making the start on offer very attractive.
Tip: Denver +5.5 ($1.92)
