"The Real Deal" Bryan Power continues to embark on his ANNUAL late-season DOMINATION of NFL!
After going a PERFECT 2-0 Saturday w/ Washington & San Diego both winning OUTRIGHT, Power then delivered his 6th STRAIGHT Winning Sunday (21-9-1 overall) in pro football!
He's now won 3 STRAIGHT days, giving him 900+ WINNERS in 2014: 87-69-1 (+6K) L29 days
1* Toronto (8:05 ET): I realize that the East-leading Raptors just played yday (won 118-108 at home over the Knicks), but the game was over early enough that I'm not really concerned w/ the lack of rest as they get set to visit Chicago Monday night. Toronto's YTD point differential is second best in the league (only trailing Golden State) at +8.7 per game, meaning this game should be a lot closer to Pick 'em given that the Bulls are at +3.8 per game. The fact that the Raptors are getting any points at all here makes them a nice value.
Then you have the fact that Chicago is just 5-5 this season at the United Center. That's the fewest home games played of any team this season, but a failure to take any advantage of even that small sample size is both concerning and actually part of what has been a longer-term issue. Over the past three seasons, the Bulls are a money-burning 38-62 ATS at home (3-7 this year) and are now allowing a very "un-Thibodeau like" 102.7 PPG at the United Center.
Therefore, the fact that Toronto is averaging a staggering 111.3 PPG on the road has to be a concern for Chicago. Throw in the facts that the Raptors are 8-3 ATS on the road and 5-1 ATS in the second night of back to backs and that only makes them more of a live dog here. The team is 3-1 ATS this season when taking points and by the way its only two losses over its L11 games came against Cleveland. My recommendation here is to take the points. 1* Toronto
