NBA Hit or Miss January 26th, 2019

UGH….We’ll get back on track, keep betting

San Antonio Spurs @ New Orleans Pelicans

Spread: Spurs -3.0

O/U: 229.5

New Orleans will be playing without superstar Anthony Davis and Nikola Mirotic. The Spurs should be able to take advantage of their absence. San Antonio has covered the spread in 3 of their last 4 games and both teams have hit the under in more than 50% of their games this season. Without Davis, Julius Randle will be given the responsibility of guarding Lamarcus Aldridge. I think Aldridge will take complete advantage and have a huge performance.

Golden State Warriors @ Boston Celtics

Spread: Warriors -3.5

O/U: 232.0

The Warriors have looked damn near unbeatable since the return of Demarcus Cousins. They are averaging over 120 points per game and have scored at least 100 points in 18 straight games. Golden State has covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 and hit the over in 6 of their last 7. Currently on a 9 game winning streak, the Warriors aren’t slowing down any time soon.

Spread: Warriors -3.5

O/U: Over 232.0

Philadelphia 76ers @ Denver Nuggets

Spread: Nuggets -10.0

O/U: 228.0

The Sixers will be without both Jimmy Butler and Joel Embiid, leaving Ben Simmons as the lone star on the court. I don’t see them having enough artillery to be able to keep this game close. Three of their last four games have hit the under. Against a good defensive team like the Nuggets, the under is a very safe bet. Since the Butler trade, the Sixers lack the shooters to keep them in this game.

Spread: Nuggets -10.0

O/U: Under 228.0

Winner: Nuggets
