YTD 83-67 ( +26.05 units )
OKLAHOMA CITY -3 -120 ( 3 units )
I bought this game down to 3, simply a feel better number and keeping it within a 1 possession cover. 54 games into the season and the thunder have yet to lose 3 straight games. Actually they've only had consecutive losses twice this season and are currently on a two game losing streak. This isn't a trap game the line is correct, after all the Pacers are 17-10 at home . This is nice spot for the thunder, there is no look ahead game, they host the Raptors on Sunday so away we go. FINAL SCORE OKLA 105 IND 98.
PORTLAND +6.6 ( 1 unit )
This will be Portland's second visit to Dallas, back on 2/11 the Trail Blazers lost by 3 but managed to get the cover as they were a 4 point dog in that game. Today their getting +6.5 and I feel their playing much better basketball away from home in comparison to the first half of the season. Portland has covered 3 out of their last 4 road games including a straight up win at Chicago. The Trail Blazers are within 3.5 games of a playoff spot so this team hasn't thrown in the towel. The Mavericks are 16-20-1 as a favorite this season and they do have Memphis on deck tomorrow.
Good luck have a Great Weekend.
