|Last years opening night the public got destroyed. 6 teams were backed by 70% of the public and all 6 went 0-6 ATS. Today 6 teams are again backed by 70% or more of the public. The consensus underdogs in these match ups are:

Bucks +8 - Covered +8 last year opening night.
Jazz +3.5 - covered +6 last year opening night, and the team wasnt on a back to back.
Not one person can predict how a team will come out on opening night and Vegas uses public perception against every bettor. I guarantee at least 4 of those teams will cover.
Vegas always collects on every opening night, so i have to back the knicks +4. No ref is better at taking out the other teams best player and keeping the game close than Joey Crawford. Expect the knicks to get away with a lot of fouls and Noah to pick up his 2nd foul before the 6 minute mark. Theres a reason crawford is always reffing the national TV games that have have large amounts of bets placed on them.
Take the knicks +4, Vegas will make sure they cover.
