Brooklyn’s in the House
The Hornets travel to Brooklyn having lost five of their last six games but have historically done well versus the Nets. They won 10 of the most recent 14 matchups in the head-to-head.
Charlotte has surrendered an average of 118.7 points per game over their most recent three games. When these two teams met last week, it was D’Angelo Russell’s 40 points that helped the Nets get the win. Look for Brooklyn to once again find success versus the Hornets. I like them laying the small number of three.
Go East Portland
The Portland Trailblazers travel to Toronto having won five straight games but haven’t had much look versus the Raptors recently. They’ve only won once out the last seven road trips.
Toronto has been dominant at home posting a 26-6 record, including winning 15 of the most recent 17 games.
With Portland struggling to score points early on in road games, averaging only 52.1 first half points away from home, and just 48.3 in the first half of games in last three head-to-head meetings, I like Toronto tonight.
Home Pelican Action
New Orleans hopes to make it six straight wins versus Phoenix as they are 5.5-point road faves today. Today, Elfrid Payton is up against a Suns team surrendering an average of 24.2 points, 6.6 boards, and 8.5 dimes to opposing point guards so he should light it up. I like New Orleans to cover the 5.5
Clips Love the Home Court
The Clippers have historically gotten the better of the Kings winning nine of the last 10 meetings overall, and five straight at the Golden Center. Despite their success over the past couple of seasons, this year’s Kings team is different, and have played very well at home winning nine of their last 11 and covering the spread in 11-of-12 at home. They’re laying 3.5 tonight and me likey.
