The NBA’s eight-game list on Sunday makes up for yesterday’s schedule, which left a lot to be desired. Tonight we’re treated to a triple header on national television: Boston Celtics vs.. . Detroit Pistons (3 pp. . m. ET), Washington Wizards vs.. . Brooklyn Networks (6 p. . m. ET) and Portland Trail Blazers vs.. . Golden State Warriors (8:30 PM). m. ET) in the late slot.
Our pundits looked at today’s games and found three bets – a prop, a full game spread, and a first half spread – that they value. You can find their game analysis and tips below.
The Spurs were one of the least interesting teams to make it to the bubble last season, but it has been a fascinating experiment. The team lacked the usual veterans, which resulted in too much playing time for young Spurs and supplanted the team from the two big men Pop had played for so long.
Well, that has continued into the new season. People like DeMar DeRozan and Keldon Johnson play a position as striker and even a nominal foursome at times. DeRozan averages 21. 8 points, 6. 2 rebounds and 8. 0 helps through five games. Dare I say the man I’ve long called Costco Kobe has been making some impression of Costco LeBron so far and playing forward for that team while Derrick White is on pause.
So far this season, DeRozan has added nine, eight, ten, six and seven assists. In the event math isn’t your forte, he’s a perfect 5-0 hit.
The jazz is playing bigger and slower which could hurt things a little, but everything we’ve seen from Spurs this season suggests DeRozan is both a goalscorer and playmaker. Our props tool rates this at 10 and we forecast DeRozan at 7. 0 templates, which means a 29% advantage in our favor. I will play DeRozan until -115.
Raheem Palmer: The Phoenix Suns have the third best defense in the NBA this season, keeping opposing teams at 102 points per 100 possessions, according to Cleaning The Glass.
When you consider they also have a top 10 offense and get 113 points. It’s no surprise they got 2 points per 100 possessions in their minutes with no trash. They have the third best net rating in the league (9). 3) overall. The Suns are 13-1 in their last fourteen games and yet this team continues to be undervalued by the betting markets.
You take seventh place in the 3-point shooting (38). 6%) and eighth in the percentage of effective field goals (56). 2%). You also have multiple wings in Mikal Bridges and Jae Crowder for pelting opposing swingmen. This is one of the best teams in the Western Conference and for some reason no one realizes.
You face the Clippers, who with Serge Ibaka and Luke Kennard are still preparing for a new head coach and a rotation of players. Marcus Morris hasn’t played with a knee injury this season and that defense wasn’t the last season – they rank 25th. Place in defense and allow 115. 2 points per 100 possessions despite being 12th in the opponent’s 3-point shooting percentage.
The Clippers have not yet won a game in which the above-average performance was achieved from the 3-point range. With the Suns being the best defensive team they have seen so far, we’ll likely see some normal shooting portion.
My projections make this game a PK so I think you have an EV bet on the Phoenix Suns at 3am. 5 or better.
Matt Moore: I still think that playing a team twice a week is a disadvantage for the team that won the first matchup. You know your opponent better and are more motivated after the defeat.
Of the 10 games this season the teams played twice a week, the teams that lost the first match were within three points in seven of the 10 games (the first half for the Warriors).
If we support that until the start of the 2014-15 season (when 3-point attempts exploded and the Rockets and Warriors revolutionized the game), the teams were in game two within three of losing the first 59. 8% of the time, according to Killer Sports.
Additionally, Rodney Hood is out for the blazers, which means more of the Carmelo Anthony and Enes Kanter combo is great for the second quarter.
I’m not excited to bet this, but just like most bets, you have to put up with the bet for the place. I’m not going to be the Warriors moneyline in the first half – I’m not that confident – but I’ll get 3 if our Action Network projection includes the full game at Warriors 3. 8, and I don’t have to worry about the game escaping the warriors.
