Miami Heat -6.5  ($110 to win $100)

They won by 7 and 9 in the two matchups in Toronto this year...and with the short trip over from Orlando I see no issues with scheduling or rest or anything.  Raptors have the Pacers on the road in their next game as well...I see an ugly 0-2 stretch.

Prediction:  Heat 105  Raptors 91

Some reverse line movement in the Celtics/Thunder game...but I'm not sold on the Celtics being able to keep it close.  Gerald Wallace is on record saying this road trip "could destroy our season"

I like the Celtics with pts, Okc off a close win, Jeff Green needs to have a good game. I remember last season they kept it fairly close. AB can take Jackson who isnt as much as a threat as Westbrook. good day to back the green imo. bol Cm

Small lean towards the Pistons to get the job done at home...but nothing too strong.  Both teams are inconsistent.

New York Knicks +6.5  ($110 to win $100)

Another gut feeling.  I think they have turned a little bit of a corner in this southwestern road trip.

Prediction:  Knicks 104  Mavericks 101

when you said, turn the corner you mean winning at san antonio and losing by two in a B2B on another bonehead play @ houston (who was rested) as a 11.5 dog.  damn straight they turned the corner.  and dallas turned another corner with this  home beatdown by the knicks.  jose calderon and monta ellis showed their true colors-- perrenial losers.  nice pick with new york!!!!!!

Gonna take New York until the books adjust...

I would predict the following lines....

-4.5  vs Detroit  (Should be a 7 point win)

+6 vs Miami  (Figure it'll be a closer game than most think)

-2.5 vs Philadelphia  (Great spot to fade them)

You missed out by 2 points on the heat and it was never even close to covering as Toronto led the whole game until the end
