*******UPDATED******* MARCH 7th
Heads up I gave out 76ers -10, the line is -2. POUND THIS GAME
Thursday March 5
Clippers @ Rockets
The Clippers in a win on Sunday versus the Sixers (without Embid) still gave up 130 points and now face a Rockets team that is 2-1 against them this season. The Rockets offense has been on fire and Houston had won six games in a row before losing to the Knicks of all teams on Monday night. The small ball that the Rockets have been playing has been working and scoring has come along with it. Look for this game to go OVER and the game lands between 235-245 points. Update: The total is now officially 237. Let’s get down on this play as it should be an easy over.
Friday March 6
Hawks @ Wizards
This game will showcase two of the best scorers in the league in the hawks Trae Young and the Wizards Bradley Beal. These two teams do not play a lot of defense so look for this game to go OVER and you can also bet both players to score OVER their individual point total for the game. The game will land between 238-250, Young scores 34, Beal scores 38. Both players currently average a cool 30 a game.
Jazz @ Celtics
Just a week ago Boston went into Salt Lake City and played a number on the Jazz winning by 11 points. Jayson Tatum led the Celtics in that game with 33 points and 11 rebounds. The Celtics just match up better against Utah and look for them to take them down again by double digits. Celtics by 12
Saturday March 7
76ers @ Warriors
Steph Curry should be back and playing for the warriors which will be awesome to see, however the Warriors are still a bad squad and the Sixers will prove that in a road victory. 76ers by 10
Sunday March 8
Thunder @ Celtics
On February 9ththe Celtics slipped by Oklahoma City by one point. These two teams have been a couple of the best teams since the All-Star break and I can see this game being another close one throughout. The road team returns the favor in this one and it’s the Thunder by 4
Lakers @ Clippers
The Clippers are 2-0 against the Lakers in the battle of Los Angeles. However, 36 year old LeBron James has been on a tear lately and for the season is going for 25 points, 10.5 assists, and 8 rebounds. James, Anthony Davis and the rest of the Lakers rise up and get a win against their rivals and a large win in an emotional game for Kobe Bryant.
