It’s a festive time of the year in New Orleans with the NFL Saints having home-field advantage through the 2018-19 playoff along with the annual Mardi Gras on the horizon.

After sweeping Portland in the first round of last season’s NBA Playoffs, the New Orleans Pelicans were sent packing the next series, losing 4-1 to Golden State.

Expectations were high to begin this season, and they held serve with a 4-0 record to start 2018 until an injury to point guard Elfrid Payton. With the former University of Louisiana Ragin Cajuns star in the lineup, they won six of seven. Now that he’s back they have one of the best on-ball defenders in the league which should improve their 26th ranked defense that allow opponents (115.3) points per contest.

New Orleans is 4-15 on the road this season, and tonight they need to get back on track against a Brooklyn team they’ve beaten 9 of the last ten, including a 117-115 victory on October 26th of this season. With Payton scoring 17 points.

Anthony Davis (27.7) ppg is an elite talent that can carry a franchise on his back. Guard Jrue Holiday is soiled at both ends of the floor and is shooting (47%) from the field. Power forward Julius Randle (19.9) ppg with (9.4) rebounds per game could be the league’s most improved player since coming over from the Lakers. The defense will determine a lot tonight.

The Best team of NBA Handicappers at Charliessports.com have won 5 of 6 involving New Orleans OVER/UNDER bets this season.

Brooklyn Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson will have his team ready for action tonight before they’ll play 6 of their next eight on the road. The Nets have experienced success this season even without star Caris LeVert out of the lineup.

For this first time in a while, the Nets are in the playoff race, but it’s essential that they continue to grow as a team. Guards D’Angelo Russell (17.9) points per game along with Spencer Dinwiddie (17.5) ppg have been doing a masterful job in the backcourt. However, it’s been the play of Joe Harris (13.4) who caught the eye of the coaching staff with clutch shooting.

Since making rookie Rodions Kurucs part of the rotation, Brooklyn has won 9 of twelve games entering the first of the year. They’ve beaten the Lakers, Raptors, and 76ers at home this season, so they won’t be intimidated by New Orleans who has Anthony Davis. The Nets offense averages (110.6) ppg with the (36.0%) they shoot from three-point land ranking 8th in the NBA.

The front office hit on drafting Center Jarrett Allen who along with Ed Davis gives the team a strong presence in the post. Allen is an elite shot blocker who’s learning how to finish shots around the rim; he’ll have his work cut out tonight with David and Randle.

The Nets should have plenty of energy after having 3-days off, but it’ll show in their defensive intensity tonight, especially on Davis around the basket.

This Sports Handicapper has also won 11 of his last 13 ATS in games involving the Brooklyn Nets.

The (21-5) SU, (13-13) Toronto Raptors have won 9 of 10 SU including a 113-102 victory over Philadelphia on December 5th as 6′ point home FAVORITES ATS. Kawhi Leonard scored a team-best 36 points while Jimmy Butler for the 76ers leads both teams with a game-high 38 points in defeat.

Toronto owns the best record in Basketball. As much success, they’re having there’s still tension between Kyle Lowry and management over how they handled DeMar DeRozan.

  • OVER bettors have cashed in 5 of Toronto last six after an ATS cover.
  • The Raptors are 1-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five following SU win.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 4 of the last six between the teams in Brooklyn.
  • Toronto is 5-2 ATS their last seven vs. Brooklyn.

The (8-18) SU, (11-15) ATS Brooklyn Nets have lost eight in a row after blowing an 18 point fourth quarter lead to Oklahoma City in a two-point SU loss as 6′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS.

However, the Thunder outscored Brooklyn 39-19 in the final quarter to ink out a win. One trend continues to favor bettors, Brooklyn is 20-6 ATS in first quarter proposition wagers.

  • Brooklyn is 2-4 ATS their last six at home.
  • The Nets are 4-0 ATS their last four after a POINT SPREAD COVER.
  • The UNDER is 4-2 the last six between the teams in Brooklyn.
  • OVER bettors have made a profit in 4 of the Nets last seven at home.

Friday’s game is at 7:30 PM EST at Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Toronto point road FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 221 points for Friday’s contest.

Nick Nurse should be the front-runner for 2018-19 NBA coach of the year for the job he’s done North of the Border since taking over for Dwane Casey. The organization understands Kawhi Leonard could have a short stint in Toronto which is why an Eastern Conference title is a top priority. Leonard is a native of Southern California with a desire to play for the Lakers or Clippers. However, it could change if Toronto gets to the NBA Finals.

Toronto averages (116.4) points per game which ties Golden State for third place, the (49.0%) shooting from the field is 2nd in the league. Leonard pours in (26.1) ppg. The Raptors have captured 4 of the past five Atlantic division title, but they know Boston can compete. Toronto has won 5 of their last eleven by double digits making tonight’s line favorable for FAVORITE bettors.

The Raptors allow opponents (108.0) points per contest which ties Orlando for seventh in the Association; their (44.3%) shooting by the opposition is 6th in the NBA. The Raptors have lost to Brooklyn since 2015, and tonight the Nets need to get a win in the worst way.

Toronto must come out and play their style of basketball.

It would be easy for Brooklyn head coach Kenny Atkinson to be frustrated after their latest debacle against Oklahoma City. The Nets were competitive for 45 minutes in defeat and looked better than they did in a home loss to Cleveland.

Caris LeVert is out until February with a foot injury which means the offense will run through D’Angelo Russell (18.0) ppg. The Nets offense produces (108.7) points per contest while giving up (111.1) ppg to opponents. They’ve given up more than 110 points to 4 of their last six opponents at Barclays Center and haven’t held Toronto under 100 points in the previous ten meetings.

Fans in largest borough of New York City fell the Nets lack a superstar, they thought Russell could fill the void, it hasn’t happened. Backcourt mate Spencer Dinwiddie is a good as he’s going to get, but John Wall would be a great fit with Brooklyn.

Ed Davis and Jarrett Allen grab eight rebounds apiece per game which the Nets are pretty good at doing, they rank 17th in the league. Atkinson has to keep things light by letting the team know they can compete which shows in the leads they’ve given up to elite teams. Beating Toronto could go a long way in building their confidence.

Brooklyn must make the open shot and play defense in the fourth quarter.

Wake-up call for the Rockets against the Nets in the Barclay Center?

Wake-up call for the Rockets against the Nets in the Barclay Center?

During this stretch in which west coast teams make an eastern pilgrimage, you would think the Houston Rockets would be looking to establish momentum while keeping the Brooklyn Nets down. Instead, it’s the other way around. The Rockets obviously don’t have the Beastie Boys on their playlist. All they’ve been doing is sleeping on their early season journey to Brooklyn. Will they finally wake up now they’ve arrived?

Can’t seem to string any wins together?

A fairly anonymous Nets squad is 3-5 SU under first-time head coach Kenny Atkinson. Mike D’Antoni’s Rockets, featuring James Harden, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony, are 1-5 SU. Early season concerns focussed on Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers’ 0-3 start. They’ve won three of their next five. Houston’s issues appear to go much deeper.

Harden and Paul are driving the team but the former is doubtful for this one after already missing two games with a strained hamstring. Houston lost both those games [to Portland and the LA Clippers] by double digits.

Despite Harden’s absence, both the betting public and the experts are solidly in the Rockets’ corner. Is that because Brooklyn needed overtime to break their own three-game slide against Detroit on Hallowe’en night? It might be. Even so, Houston will need a few tricks to treat themselves to a win on the road.

Much will depend on what they get from Carmelo Anthony. Against the Clippers in Harden’s first game out of the lineup, the Brooklyn native responded with 24 points in 34 minutes. He hurt the team at the other end, however, ending up -17 on the court for the night. Against Portland, he disappeared completely, putting up eight points on 2/12 shooting while attempting only a pair of threes. Once again, the Rockets were outscored by 17 while he was on the court. If Carmelo with the hot hand shows up, Houston can cope better at the other end against the Nets than the Blazers.

For all that, Houston is giving away a point on the road. I know Brooklyn doesn’t throw a lot of household names at you but is everyone a slave to the brand these days? Or is it that the visitors have won the last four STRAIGHT UP in this series?

The Nets’ lack of flash is reflected in the TOTAL, as well, which sits at a meagre 213.5. On the other hand, the Rockets didn’t score a 100 points until their fifth game, a 19-point loss to New Orleans. It’s D’Antoni’s style to let it all hang out. The Rockets haven’t held an opponent under a 100 this season. Their 1-5 record tells you how that’s worked for the team. How will it be any better without Harden?

Brooklyn’s defence may have the answer, as in they haven’t had an answer for most teams in this campaign. The only team they held to double-digits was Cleveland. Can these teams run at each other all night? Recent trends say they can. The OVER took the last four games between the two in Brooklyn and four of the last five overall. Can Houston pull out a win? They’re 1-6 AGAINST THE SPREAD in the last seven against the Nets. Again, with the LINE at one in Brooklyn’s favour, there’s not much margin for error. Leave that alone and go with the Over.
