Let’s take a closer look.
Hawks (-3) vs. Knicks
Don’t look now but here come the Hawks. Now operating with a healthy Trae Young, the Hawks have won four straight and five of their past six. The offense has been the name of the game, scoring 113 or more points in all four, each game scoring more than the last with 130 on Wednesday in their rout of the Mavericks.
For the Knicks, a mini two-game slide is in their rear view heading into this one, most recently suffering a bad loss at home Wednesday 116-105 to the Wizards that saw their shooting go ice cold. With the Knicks winning this matchup in NYC on December 7th in decisive fashion, I like the Hawks to get revenge here at home.
Bet: Hawks -3 (-110)
Spurs (+6.5) vs. Clippers
This number popped up on Thursday afternoon and I grabbed it right away.
The Clippers come into this one on yet another brief slide, having lost eight of their last 10, failing to cover any of the losses. Coming into this one, Kawhi Leonard is once again questionable with a knee injury, and if I had to guess, he fails to suit up in this one at his former team.
For the Spurs, they come into the weekend as healthy as they’ve been in months, with the results to show. Though they’ve lost eight of 10 themselves, they are 7-3 ATS over those games.
They keep this one closer once again.
Bet: Spurs +6.5 (-110)
Grizzlies (-6.5) vs. Lakers
Just when it looked like some momentum was starting to build for the Lake Show, they’ve promptly now lost three of their past four, all of which have come at home. As it did last year, their 3PT% is coming back to bite them, as they’re shooting just 33.7% from the arch, amongst the bottom four teams in the league.
The Grizzlies have had no such issues in the wins department. Coming into tonight, the Grizz have won 11 straight, having covered two of their past three. They do it again Friday in LA.
Bet: Grizzlies -6.5 (-110)
