1/31 – NBA Action

7pm - Sacramento at Indiana -5.5  O/U 198.5

The Kings have lost 8 in a row.  The Pacers beat the Knicks on Thursday for their 2nd win in 3 games after losing 7 in a row.  No reason to like the Kings here on the road.

Indiana 99  Sacramento 91

7pm - Dallas -7 at Orlando  O/U 211

The Mavs won at Miami last night to snap a 4 game losing streak.  The Magic have lost 7 in a row.  Dallas has taken 5 straight from Orlando dating back to March 2012.  Make it 6 straight after tonight's game.

Dallas 106  Orlando 89

7pm - Toronto at Washington -4.5  O/U 203.5

The Raptors won 127-122 in OT in Brooklyn last night for their 5th straight win.  The Wizards lost a Phoenix on Wednesday for their 3rd loss in 5 games.  Wall is questionable with a migraine.  Because of Wall's status and the fact that Toronto has won 5 of the last 6 meetings, I'll go with the Raptors.

Toronto 106  Washington 103

7:30pm - Philadelphia at Atlanta -16  O/U 191

The Sixers have won 2 in a row after beating the Timberwolves last night.  The Hawks have won 18 in a row and 32 of 34.  I'm pretty sure Atlanta wins, but they failed to cover in their last 2 double digit spreads.  Philly keep it within the number.

Atlanta 104  Philadelphia 92 

7:30pm - Houston -4.5 at Detroit  O/U 205

The Rockets have won 4 in a row.  The Pistons have cooled off after a hot streak now having lost 4 straight and 5 of 6.  Howard is out for Houston and Jennings is a no go for Detroit.  Everything points to the Rockets winning this one.

Houston 102  Detroit 95

8pm - Oklahoma City at Memphis -5.5 O/U 197.5

The Thunder lost at New York on Thursday for their 3rd loss in 4 tries.  The Grizzlies have won 5 straight and 9 of 10 games.  Durant is questionable with a big toe sprain which doesn't help the chances for the road weary Thunder.

Memphis 103  Oklahoma City 96

8pm - Cleveland 10.5 at Minnesota  O/U 205

The Cavs have won 9 straight games.  The Timberwolves lost to the Sixers last night for their 6th loss in 7 games.  Tough double digit spread to cover on the road, but I believe LeBron, Kyrie and Love are up to the challenge.

Cleveland 107  Minnesota 93

8:30pm - Portland -1.5 at Milwaukee  O/U 197.5

The Blazers have lost 2 straight, 4 of 5 and 7 of 9.  The Bucks have won 2 in a row and 3 of 4.  I think Portland salvages their 3 game roadie with a win tonight behind Aldridge and Lillard.

Portland 102  Milwaukee 98

9pm - Charlotte at Denver -6  O/U 193

The Hornets lost to the Spurs on Wednesday but have won 4 of 6.  The Nuggets lost at Memphis on Thursday for their 8th loss in 9 tries.  It'll be tough for Charlotte to win without Kemba Walker, but I like them to at least cover here.

Denver 97  Charlotte 94

9pm - L.A. Clippers at San Antonio -4.5  O/U 202.5

The Clippers lost at New Orleans last night after winning 6 in a row.  The Spurs have won 3 straight and 7 of 8.  Tough game for the Clippers to bounce back.  Spurs are playing well, are healthy, rested and at home.

San Antonio 105  L.A. Clippers 98

10:30pm - Phoenix at Golden State -10  O/U 225

The Suns beat the Bulls last night for their 2nd straight win.  The Warriors have now lost 2 straight.  Golden State is 21-2 at home so I don't think they'll lose, but Phoenix is playing well enough to cover in a high scoring affair.

Golden State 116  Phoenix 108
