Well another disappointing outing last night.
We had the Raptors -5.5 however they barely beat the Chicago Bulls. Having watched pretty much every Raptors game this season, I think last night was a true showing of who the Raps are and where they stand this season.
The high of the Championship has worn off, and now we’re seeing a team who is going to have to pick up those gritty wins. That’s the true Raps right there – a 600 team who will be battling for top four in the East. Going to make for some fun and intense games and I think we’ll be able to find some value betting against them the next little while.
We had the Timberwolves +4 but it was an excellent offensive performance from the Suns in that one as they won 125-109. Tough one as Minnesota started like we expected but they just couldn’t keep it going in the second half.
Let’s go onto Tuesday, December 10th. We’ve got four games on the board. Just the one betting tip. Let’s get to it:
Wizards vs Hornets Betting Tips:
I’m going to back the Wizards here based on strength of schedule.
Washington are only 7-15 for the season and come into this one on the back of 5 losses in their last 6. That’s tough however every single loss was against a .500+ team. That’s a good indication of where Washington are.
Now they’ve got a big road trip as they go up against the Hornets, Grizzlies and Pistons. Three potential winning spots and this is a big time for the rebuilding team. I’ve got to think they give it their all here.
The Hornets are coming off that loss at home to the Hawks. They let that one slip away.
I think this is a big set of games for the Wizards and that their defense is able to step up here. Hornets just can’t keep the pressure going all game long as we are seeing and that will be their downfall.
These two teams last played on November 22nd and the Wizards were able to march out to a 125-118 win. That was after a big first half from the Hornets too. Washington hung in there and then took over in the 4th quarter.
