With only two NBA games being played tonight you know there’s going to be a lot of money invested by punters all over the country, here’s what you can do to get your hands on some. We’ve also included our NCAA basketball pick of the night for you to round out what could be a successful venture this evening.
Golden State Warriors -7.5 @ Boston Celtics
The Celtics have been rolling and have a 13-2 record going into a game many believe could be the (very) early edition of the NBA Finals. However the quality of teams they have played recently is nothing like they will face tonight. Kyrie has been the playmaker but will have his work cut out for him against a formidable Warriors back court. The Warriors have shown they have an extra gear when they’ve needed it at times this season, and with all the hype surrounding the game tonight you can expect them to push that higher level of play right from the start.
Houston Rockets @ Phoenix Suns Over 228
Over 228!? For real? Yes! Both these teams are capable scorers who don’t mind giving up points with ease in the hope that they will simply score more at the other end. With the Rockets coming off a loss in their last outing despite being on the road tonight, we anticipate there could be big numbers from the likes of one James Harden. The Suns will try and match the high volume and provided they can keep up this will be a high scoring affair! The Rockets have scored over 110 easily in their last 7 games regardless of the result. While the Suns have allowed over 100 to their opponents in their last 4 games and managed to win some of those too. Get on the over!
Oklahoma State Cowboys -19.5 vs Oral Roberts Golden Eagles
Throwing out our first NCAA pick of the season now that there are some form lines starting to develop. The Cowboys have begun nicely and are currently 2-0 against the spread (both at double digits). They’re home tonight to face a Golden Eagles squad which is 0-1 against the spread and also 0-1 on the road. They looked out of sorts last outing which was the road game and the quality of opposition will be too strong tonight. The Cowboys will also want to send a message to their next opponent a ranked Texas A&M with another big win here! Take the Cowboys even at the large spread.
