NBA Pick: Jazz -1,
This season the jazz are 18-9 on there home court. As of the last ten games the jazz are 7-3 and are on fire on offense. The Jazz are the 4th best offense in the NBA averaging 117.75 points per game while Atlanta allows there opponents to score at 47.63 percent from the field goal. I like Utah to thrive off the home crowd and limit the hawks three point attempts.
NBA Prop: Kevin Huerter Over 21.5 PRAs
The Pacers this season allow the second most points to shooting guards per game and top 5 in Assists. Huerter this season is averaging 15 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists. Tonight the kings are without there best player De’Aaron Fox. I think Huerter will take over scoring roles and torch a team that has been bad against opposing shooting guards all season.
NBA Parlay: Magic +8.5, Raptors -4,
Against the spread this season the magic are the 4th best team in the NBA at 29-22. The line is at 4.5 with the tease I give the magic 4 extra points. The Twolves this season as a home favorite this season are 6-10 against the spread. Orlando this season has scored the ball in the paint in the top 15th percentage in the NBA. Minnesota ranks 24th in the league guarding the paint. I like the magic to get out in transition and score the ball at a high rate against a team that’s struggles in transition and teams that play fast. With giving myself 4 extra points I love the magic here at +8.5.
The Houston Rockets tonight are without Jalen Green and Kevin Porter, that will kill them scoring the ball tonight. Houston this season has the worst turnover assist ration in the NBA at 1.30. The raptors defense this season has been causing deflections and turnovers all year. Toronto leads the league with 9.25 steals per game and I expect them to swarm this rockets offense. With giving myself 4 extra points and the rockets two stars out I like the raptors to get buckets off Houston turnovers.
