A 1-1 record last night.

We got the win with the Kings +10.5 against the Lakers. I felt that the Kings were really being disrespected here and that bared true. This one was close throughout and the Lakers were held under a 100 points in this one. It’s extra impressive when you consider that LeBron James hit a finishing move near the end of the first half.

Our loss was the Celtics laying big points against the Warriors. They laid the -7.5, but only one this one by five. This one say the Warriors go up 30-20 in the first quarter and the Celts had to comeback from that. They did that and were never able to extend that lead enough for this cover.

We have a full Saturday night schedule in the NBA tonight. One game I was looking at, but will be ignoring is the Wolves and Rockets. I really like the Wolves here, but that depends heavily on if Andrew Wiggins plays. He lost his grandmother this week and traveled to the funeral, causing him to miss last night’s games. When there are real-life, personal issues involved – it’s best to just stay away.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Indiana Pacers Betting Tips:

This is a tough one for Indiana as they played at Houston last night and now travel home to play the Milwaukee Bucks. That is a whole lot of running and a whole lot of three point shooting to deal with two nights in a row. The Pacers lost 111-102 last night and I am expecting a similar result here.

This might be the Giannis Antetokounmpo show tonight which is never a bad thing. The Bucks will be without Khris Middleton which is a big loss, but sustainable. The Pacers injury situation is potentially much worse as Malcolm Brogdon, Myles Turner, and Jeremy Lamb are all listed as questionable. Whoever ends up playing could be playing some big minutes which won’t feel that great on a back-to-back.

Milwaukee could use this win for Central division standings purposes. They are on the road once again, a stretch of 9 of 11 games, but they’ve done well in those so far and I think they continue to here.

Toronto Raptors vs. Dallas Mavericks Betting Tips:

This is a line that I really don’t understand as the Raptors continue to be disrespected by the sportsbooks. They are without Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, but as we’ve said before, more of Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam is not a bad thing. This team is deep and Norman Powell is an absolute scorer who has always done well in extended minutes.

The Mavericks are all offense. They are currently second best in the NBA in Offensive Rating at 112.4. That’s all Luka Doncic who is having a true NBA season thus far. That said, the defensive is horrible. Their 110.1 Defensive Rating is 21st in the NBA and they are going to allow some points tonight.

That makes this match-up tough as the Raptors are 6th in Defensive Rating on the year. They have injury issues, but I believe in their top line players more in this match-up. Siakam is a beast and I don’t think Kristaps Porzingis or anyone on the Mavs can handle him.
