It's going to be a HUGE DAY of NBA action for this MLK MONDAY!!
And after we gave out a WINNING WEEKEND for everyone once again....
We are giving everyone the NBA action we just released to our MEMBERS!!
That's right -- reflect and respect the sacrifices made in the name of change that have made this the great country of all time!!
And what better way to do that than with COLD HARD CASH WINNINGS!!
Now let's roll.....
TODAY'S ACTION --
UTAH JAZZ (+2.5)
Both of these teams are currently struggling through the lulls of the long NBA season, but have to give the edge to the team playing slightly better recently and have a history of completely owning this match-up. Utah has dominated the Hornets over the years, winning at an 11-1 ML clip in the L12 battles between the two franchises. The Jazz have also managed to post a 8-2-2 ATS record in those contests. Not sure why the Hornets are getting the edge here today, especially considering they have dropped 9-of-their-L10 games and will be playing without their star Al Jefferson once again here today. Utah is 1-6 ATS in their L7 on the road, but Charlotte is now 1-4 ATS in their L5 at home. The Hornets are also currently 1-7 ATS in their L8 against a team with a losing record overall. Take the UTAH JAZZ for the road cover as the underdog......
ORLANDO MAGIC (+7.5) AND
OVER 201 ORL MAGIC @ ATL HAWKS
The Magic have played only one time in the L9 days so it will be interesting to see how they bounce back, but we are expecting them to keep this one close for the most part. The Hawks earned a 103-100 win in Orlando in the first meeting between the two teams this season, although the Magic now hold a 5-1 ATS mark in their L6 battles held in Atlanta. Orlando has failed to cover the spread in the L2 meetings between them, but Orlando had taken the prior 7 meetings between the two squads. Go with the ORLANDO MAGIC and the OVER in this meeting.......
PHILADELPHIA SIXERS (+9)
Haven't had many chances this season to back the Sixers but getting a near double-digit spread in Madison Square Garden is as good time as any. Philadelphia is actually coming in off a win over Portland their last time out, and had lost a tough 4-point OT loss versus the Bullls the game prior, and have been cashing for their backers as of late with 3 straight covers. The Knicks have struggled to beat teams by this large of a margin lately, managing to cover today's spread only 3 times in their L16 overall. They have been even worse than that all season long, having failed to win by 9 or more points in 34-of-their-L41 contests overall. Philly has also managed to keep this one close to today's spread in recent meetings losing by 10 points in 2-of-their-L3 losses against the Knicks, but they had kept it within 8 points or less (or won outright) in the previous 5 meetings. Anthony is questionable for today and the Knicks are 0-4 ML without the superstar. Philadelphia is now 0-24 ML against the Eastern Conference this season, but could have a chance for a win here today to snap that. We'll play it much safer and take the points here. Go with the PHILADELPHIA SIXERS for today's early tilt......
OVER 202.5 CHI BULLS @ DET PISTONS AND DETROIT PISTONS (-3)
Detroit has become a team to reckon with this season, but a healthy Chicago team may still be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. Chicago is in a major funk right now, dropping 5 straight ATS while holding a 1-4 ML in that span. The Bulls have been equally inept when playing on the road lately, going 2-3 ML and 1-4 ATS in their L5 away from the Windy City. They are 2-7 ATS in their L9 on the road and 5-10-1 ATS in their 16 away from home this season. Detroit comes in off a huge victory over Golden State in their last game, 113-95, which culminated a tough 3-game stretch against the upper echelon of the Western Conference (GS, MEM, SA) in which they went 1-2 ML and ATS. They had won and covered 3 straight prior to that and have had a much better run against the Eastern Conference as of late. Detroit has won and covered in 3 straight against the Eastern Conference at home and have picked up 7 wins ML and ATS in their L8 in the same situation. They have dominated the East at home all season long, going 8-2 ATS in their L10 games versus their own conference on their own court. The Pistons have owned this series as of late, taking 3 straight meetings and folding a 5-1 ML mark against the Bulls in the L6 battles. They have been absolute money for their backers though, hitting for 5 straight covers and a 6-1 ATS mark in their L7 meetings. This series saw the first meeting this season last through quadruple OT, with Detroit winning 147-144. Go with the DETROIT PISTONS and the OVER in this match-up.......
There you have it!! That will kick off this MLK MONDAY of NBA action!!
Best of luck to all today!! Let's get that money!!
