Tonight will be a good test of the power of NFL football as tonight’s match-up is one of the weakest we’ve seen all season. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans face off in a battle of two teams who are definitely not going to the playoffs this season. Both teams do have exciting, young, high draft pick quarterbacks though so this one could be fun to watch. The problem with both teams in the defenses which makes for bad football teams, but fun football watching.
All eyes will be on the NBA tonight though as the undefeated Golden State Warriors head to Los Angeles to face the Clippers. These two teams hate each other with a burning fire which always makes for a fun viewing experience. The Clippers would love nothing more than to knock the Warriors off their pedestal and put their mark on this NBA season. This could be the Clippers last chance to make a playoff impact with this specific group of players and they know they can’t chase the Warriors all season. This is as good of a November match-up as you’ll find in the NBA.
NFL Betting Tips:
This one is all about the offenses and scoring touchdowns. If you have fantasy players from either of these teams you might want to start them because this one will feature a lot of fireworks. These defenses have combined to allow 52.1 points per game and both teams have the weapons to capitalize on that. Marcus Mariota is healthy and he should do well against this Jacksonville defense. For Jacksonville, you have to love their wide receiver duo of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns who have combined for 14 touchdowns this season. This one is definitely going over 42.5 points and I’m all over it.
NBA Betting Tips:
The story of tonight’s Warriors and Clippers game, like almost every Warriors game, will be the three ball. The Warriors are shooting 40% on threes as a team while only allowing opposing teams to shoot 27% from long range. Those are insane numbers and a big reason why the Warriors have been blowing through their opponents this season. The Clippers don’t do that well from three as it is so this could end up being a tough one for them.
That said, these two teams always play each other tough. They played back on 11/4 where the Warriors eked out a four-point win in a game where the Clippers (barely) won the rebound and turnover battles. The Clips are at home tonight and that should count for something. We’re taking Clippers +7.5. I just can’t see them laying down for the Warriors on national TV tonight.
In an early match-up we have the Bucks and Cavs. These two teams played each other this past Saturday night in Milwaukee in a double-OT thriller. The Bucks will be without Jabari Parker tonight who made a big difference in that game, brutalizing Kevin Love on offense a few times. When the Bucks are playing good defense than can be very frustrating for this Cavs team the way it is currently set up.
Taking away the first three games of the season when Milwaukee had injuries and suspensions to deal with, the Bucks have only allowed 100 points in two of their last eight games and one of those was in double overtime. I was surprised to see Bucks +10 after the way they played Cleveland the last time out and we are on that tonight. Of course, the Cavs also have one of the best defenses in basketball so we’re also taking Under 195.5. As long as this one doesn’t go to overtime, that should hit.
