Orlando Magic head coach Steve Clifford has his team playing at a high level but can they keep soaring the next three months. The Magic are 19-25 vs. Eastern Conference opponents and are averaging (114.0) points the past ten games which is nearly nine points above their (105.8) they usually score.

The Chicago Bulls has won four times the last twenty times they’ve taken the floor. Since arriving from Washington Otto Porter Jr. is averaging (22.5) ppg while shooting (62.0%) percent from the field the past ten games. The former Georgetown University seems to have found a system where he fits as opposed to the toxic environment in the Nations Capital. Zach LaVine (23.0) ppg leads the team in scoring while Lauri Markkanen is a skilled post player that can play away from the basket. Chicago is 11-14 ATS this season when they’re an eight-point UNDERDOG or less.

A key to a win for Chicago tonight will be how well they shoot the basketball; Orlando has won seven of eight when holding opponents under (40.0%) shooting from the field.

This Sports handicapper is aware the Bulls organization is looking to get into the 2019 NBA draft lottery and the Zion Williamson sweepstakes. However, they still have young talent that will flourish in the correct system, and at some point, management must decide what direction to pursue.

Bovada.Lv list the Orlando Magic win total at 31 games for 2018-19.

Portland @ Brooklyn NBA rated Free Pick for Thursday.

Written by National Basketball Association Expert Betting Analyst Charlie Red McDougall.

Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting. NBA Daily ATS Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2019. We’re always providing BETTOR Friendly cards. Our signature 500* premium ATS Predictions are unreal & I promise you won’t regret purchasing, cash in Daily.
The (34-23) SU, (31-26) ATS Portland Trailblazers broke a two-game losing streak by taking down Golden State as 2 point home UNDERDOGS ATS before the All-Star break. Portland has the fourth best record in the Western Conference and has won six of their last ten before the break. All Star point guard Damian Lillard is questionable tonight with a slight ankle injury.

  • Portland is 9-1 ATS their last ten after playing on three days or more rest.
  • The UNDER is 7-1 Portland last eight vs. Teams with a winning SU record.
  • The OVER is 5-1 the last six between the teams.
  • Portland is 3-2 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last five on the road.

The (30-29) SU, (33-26) ATS Brooklyn Nets beat Cleveland 148-139 as 7 point road FAVORITES ATS in overtime their last game on February 13th. Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Harris won the three-point contest at All-Star weekend in Charlotte. It’s an area where the Nets flourish, they shoot (33.5%) from beyond the three-point line which ranks 4th league-wide.

  • Brooklyn is 2-3 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five at home.
  • The OVER is 4-1 Brooklyn last five following an SU win.
  • The Nets are 10-5 ATS their last fifteen overall.
  • OVER bettors has made profits in 4 of the last five between the teams in Brooklyn.

Thursday’s game is 7:35 PM EST at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The local television network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Brooklyn as 2 point home UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 230 points for Thursday’s contest.

 

It’s refreshing to hear Portland All-Star point guard Damian Lillard (26.3) points per game express his interest in signing a long term contract with the Trailblazers. The former Weber State University product recently told ESPN reporters he’s not chasing an NBA title which doesn’t mean he won’t compete at a high level. Portland has plated one game without Lillard this season a 120-111 victory over Atlanta.

Head Coach Terry Stotts probably won’t have his leading scorer in the lineup tonight, but he still has C.J. McCollum (21.0) ppg to take over in the backcourt. The Trailblazers offense puts up an average of (113.3) ppg on (46.3%) shooting from the field. However, their (36.7%) shooting from beyond the three-point line is the 27th league-wide. Portland allows opponents (110.3) ppg with the (36.7%) on three-point shooting is what they need to worry about tonight. Portland has held Brooklyn to 100 points or less just one time in the past seven meeting, and that was in the 2014 season.

OVER bettors seem to like this game tonight with the total trending upward.

The NBA Handicappers at Charliessports.com has a FREE PICK on Portland-2, we don’t like the TOTAL with the status of Lillard coupled with Brooklyn having injuries to Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert.

Bovada.Lv list the Portland Trailblazers win total at 42 games for 2018-19.

 

Joe Harris wasn’t the only member of the Brooklyn Nets to have his name called on NBA All-Star weekend. Guard D’Angelo Russell (20.3) ppg was chosen to play in the classic. Head coach Kenny Atkinson has fans in the largest borough of Gotham believing the franchise is heading in the right direction.

Despite the fact they’ve dropped six of ten SU they compete every time they take the floor. The Dinwiddie injury happened at the worst possible time, but Atkinson isn’t making any excuses; it’s the next man up attitude.

The Nets (112.3) ppg they average on offense is the 14th league-wide while the (112.7) they allow opponents is 21st. Former New York Knicks standout post player Enes Kanter returns to the area and loves playing against Brooklyn. Kanter averages (22.3) ppg against the Brooklyn Nets and is looking forward to facing Nets center Jarrett Allen tonight.

This Sports handicapper is aware Brooklyn is a prolific three-point shooting team, and they understand Joe Harris is a proven commodity which will be needed tonight.

Bovada.Lv list the Brooklyn Nets win total at 32 games for 2018-19.

Can Suns break 14-game losing skid Wednesday in Los Angeles vs. Clippers?

Written by NBA ATS Analyst Charlie Red McDougall.

Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting. NBA Expert Point Spread Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the March Madness Finals in April of 2019. We’re always providing BETTOR Friendly cards. Our signature 500* premium ATS Predictions are unreal & I promise you won’t regret purchasing, cash in Daily.

The (11-47) SU, (25-33) ATS Phoenix Suns latest defeat came at the hands of Sacramento 117-104 as 9′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS. In the loss, Devin Booker scored a team-high 27 points while Josh Jackson added 18-points. Tonight’s game is their finale before the All-Star break, and a victory couldn’t come at a better time as the Suns are struggling but playing competitive basketball.

  • Phoenix is 1-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five on the road.
  • UNDER bettors have made a profit the Suns last three overall.
  • The Suns are 0-6 ATS the last seven between the teams in Los Angeles.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 4 of the last ten times, the teams have met.

The (31-27) SU/ATS Los Angeles Clippers return from a six-game road trip which ended with a 130-120 loss to Minnesota as 3′ point UNDERDOGS ATS. The Clippers have won 7 of their last 12 SU and are still within striking distance of a playoff berth. The Clippers beat a terrific Boston team on the road before playing the Timberwolves, and they’ve beaten Phoenix eleven consecutive time dating back to 2016.

  • OVER bettors has made a profit 3 of the Clippers last four at home vs. Teams with an SU losing record.
  • The Clippers are 1-6 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last seven at home.
  • Los Angeles is 5-1 ATS their last six following an SU defeat.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 the last four between the teams.

Wednesday’s game is 10:30 PM EST at Staple Center in Los Angeles, California. The Local television network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Phoenix as 8′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 231′ points for Wednesday’s contest.

 

It’s been a rough ending to the first half in 2019 as Phoenix looks to break an eleven game losing streak tonight against a Clippers team who has their number. The last Sun’s victory came against Denver over a month ago, and they haven’t posted a road win since December 26, 2018, at Orlando.

Shooting guard Devin Booker (24.9 ppg) returned to the lineup for the first time against Sacramento since a hamstring injury and showed why he’d be at All-Star weekend participating in the three-point competition. Another loss would tie a Suns franchise record set last season, and that’s why it’s essential for the team to come out focused tonight.

Head Coach Igor Kokoskov traded for Tyler Johnson a move the organization believes will provide them with the backcourt of the future. The problem with it is neither Johnson or Booker are proven point guards; they’re more shot takers instead of playmakers which is a reason for concern. 2018 first overall draft pick Deandre Ayton (16.5 ppg, 10.5 rebounds, and 0.9 shot blocks) is showing promise and wants to end the first half on a positive note.

This Sports Handicapper believes the Suns can take advantage of a tired Clippers team who also made wholesale changes to their roster, but we’re going with the Clippers-8′ as our FREE PICK.

Bovada.Lv list the Phoenix Suns win total at 29′ games for 2018-19.

 

NBA expert analyst on many news media outlets has a lurking notion that the Clippers organization is looking forward to the 2019 free agent market to with Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in mind.

The Clippers are ninth in the Western Conference, but after making wholesale changes on the recent trade deadline, it’s clear what direction they’re moving. They’ve alternated victories the last seven games and are looking for the season sweep against Phoenix tonight.

Tobias Harris is now playing in Philadelphia while they received Wilson Chandler, Landry Shamet and JaMychal Green. Garrett Temple is a veteran point guard who they acquired from Memphis and is an asset.

President of Basketball operations Lawrence Franks has the franchise heading in the right direction, and he also knows head coach Doc Rivers will have the team competing. However, make no mistake the Clippers are set to make a move in the 2019 NBA free agent market. Players on the roster will play their last game tonight before the All-Star break, and although the Clippers aren’t projected to get into the playoffs, players on the roster want to win.

A key for a Clippers win to play their game against a struggling Suns team; the Clippers want to go into the break with a victory.

Bovada.Lv list the Los Angeles Clippers win total at 36′ games for 2018-19.

The (25-28) SU, (26-27) ATS Minnesota Timberwolves have dropped two straight and four of their last five. Minnesota is 11′ games behind first-place Denver in the Northwest division as we are a week away from 2019 All-Star break. They’re also 8-18 on the road this season as injuries are beginning to take the toll on the roster.

  • Minnesota is 0-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last four overall.
  • The Timberwolves are 1-5 ATS their last six after a POINT SPREAD loss.
  • OVER bettors have made profits 4 of the last five between the teams.
  • Minnesota is 5-15 ATS their last twenty times the teams have played.

The (22-32) SU, (27-26-1) ATS Orlando Magic lost 132-122 to Oklahoma City as 8’point road UNDERDOGS ATS their last time on the hardwood. Orlando seeks revenge from a 120-103 January 4th loss in Minneapolis.

Orlando is eleventh in the Eastern Conference with a three-game road trip looming before the annual break. Head Coach Steve Clifford is looking for his team to finish the first half of the season strong.

  • Orlando is 1-4 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last five vs. Teams with an SU losing record.
  • The Magic are 5-2 ATS their last seven on a day’s rest.
  • Orlando is 6-2 ATS their last eight between the teams at home.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in the Magic last three at home.

Thursday’s game is 7:05 PM EST at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The local television network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Orlando as 2 point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 215′ points for Thursday’s contest.

 

Interim Timberwolves head coach Ryan Saunders will be without Jeff Teague, Derrick Rose, Tyus Jones, and Robert Covington tonight. Although Minnesota averages (111.3) point per game, 17th in league-wide but they’ve been held to 106 points in four of the last five games. Center Karl-Anthony Towns (22.8) ppg leads the team in scoring while Andrew Wiggins (17.7) ppg is their most athletic player who many say along with Towns is untradeable.

However, Wiggins has struggled the past three games scoring less than twelve points. Making matter worse for the Minnesota offense is the Magic defense performs at an elite level at home. Dario Saric scored 22 points in the last game against which was his total point output the previous five.

The top NBA Handicapper believes it’ll take a maximum effort for Minnesota to get a road win vs. A team with a great defense. Minnesota is 12-14 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD on the road this season while the UNDER has cashed in 14 of twenty-six. The Timberwolves organization may have to make some moves before the deadline if they want to make a move for the playoffs.

Bovada.Lv list the Minnesota Timberwolves win total at OVER 44′ for 2018-19.

 

The Orlando Magic have had their share of problems this season, but they are in the East which is less competitive. Head Coach Steve Clifford would like to have his team to finish with a purpose before the break. Orlando ranks 27th league-wide scoring (104.6) points per game while the eighth-ranked defense allows opponents (107.9) ppg. Nikola Vucevic (20.6) points per contest are the leading scorer on a unit that shoots (44.7%) from the field. He’s recorded double-doubles in 6 of his last eight games.

Rookie Mo Bamba is out with a stress fracture in his leg. Reserve guard Terrance Ross who’s scored double figures in 13 of his last fifteen games could be on the trading block with plenty of contenders bidding for his services. Orlando has lost five of their previous seven SU and with a three-game road trip on the horizon, nothing a win tonight could give them confidence moving forward. The UNDER has cashed in 15 of Orlando last twenty-eight at home.

Sports Handicapper Charlie Red McDougall and his staff have a 2-team PARLAY on tap tonight for 35.00.

Bovada. Lv, list the Orlando Magic win total at 31′ games for 2018-19.

The (38-16) SU, (24-30) ATS Toronto Raptors beat the Los Angeles Clippers 121-103 as 9 point home FAVORITES ATS on Super Bowl Sunday. Toronto looked impressive without point guard Kyle Lowry in the lineup Sunday, and he along with Center Toronto Raptors are listed as doubtful tonight.

With less than two weeks until the All-Star break, Toronto is two games Milwaukee for the best record in the East.

  • Toronto is 1-4 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last five on the road.
  • The UNDER is 6-4 Toronto last ten overall.
  • The OVER is 6-1 Toronto last seven on the road
  • Toronto is 12-4 ATS the previous sixteen between the teams.

The (34-19) SU, (25-28) ATS Philadelphia 76ers lost to Sacramento 115-108 as 3 point road FAVORITES ATS in the finale of the four-game road trip. Philadelphia too down the Lakers and Golden State while they were out West but failed to finish strong.

The win over the two times defending champion Warriors proved how good the 76ers could be when they play as a team.

  • Philadelphia is 0-4 ATS their last four on Tuesday’s.
  • The 76ers are 6-2 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last eight following an SU loss.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 7 of the previous eight between the teams in Philadelphia.
  • The UNDER is 5-1 Philadelphia last six after an SU loss.

Tuesday’s game is 8:05 PM EST at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The TNT network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has Philadelphia as 3 point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 231′ points for Tuesday’s contest.

 

The Toronto Raptors believe backup point guard Fred Van Vleet is doing an admirable job filling in for Kyle Lowry who missed six games in December and January with a back injury. Both are six foot which has caused Toronto problems in the postseason which has the organization leaving options open through the trade deadline.

Toronto is 8-4 with Lowry out of the lineup but an impressive 16-11 SU on the road this season. Toronto averages (113.8) ppg but they’ve scored more than 120 points in two of the last meeting against Philadelphia. The Raptors shoot (47.4%) from the field which ranks ninth in the NBA. Leading scorer Kawhi Leonard (27.4 ppg, 7.9 RPG and 1.9 steals) is their best player, and if the franchise is to move forward, they must keep him in a Raptors uniform.

Head coach Nick Nurse knows his team must play tight defense tonight to get a victory. The Raptors (110.5) ppg to the opposition on the road which is 12th, league-wide.

This Sports handicapper understands the Toronto Raptors want to finish the first half of the season strong and they’re playing the 76ers for the final time in the 2018-19 regular season.

With Lowry out Leonard and power forward Serge Ibaka must take the lead.

Bovada.Lv list the Toronto Raptors win total at 55′ games for 2018-19.

 

Anytime you have young stars the caliber of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid on your roster there’s a reason for optimism. However, head coach Brett Brown still looks for veteran leadership from JJ Reddick, Jimmy Butler, and Wilson Chandler. Reddick will play tonight, but Chandler is on the shelf with a quadricep injury until after the All-Star break.

Philadelphia will play four of their next five at the Wells Fargo Center before their February 13 game in New York the last before the annual All-Star break.

The (115.4) ppg the 76ers averages is the fourth league-wide while the (47.1%) field goal shooting ranks 8th in the NBA. Embiid (27.2) ppg and Simmons (8.1 assists per game) lead Philadelphia in all five major categories.

After last seasons second-round playoff loss to Boston the organization decided they needed to be more robust and enter Jimmy Butler who was once homeless as a teenager. It’s been a rocky start as the alway’s critical Butler takes nothing for granted and wants maximum effort from the team each time they take the floor. Egos are going to get in the way, but they’ll reap the rewards sooner than later.

The (37-15) SU, (29-23) ATS Denver Nuggets took down division rivals Minnesota on Saturday. February 2, 2019, as 1 point road FAVORITES ATS.

Denver made 13 of 33 three-pointers while getting 22 points from guard Malik Beasley in the victory. The Nuggets were without Gary Harris and Jamal Murray, their status for tonight is uncertain. They’re tied with Golden State for the best record in the Western Conference.

  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 5 of Denver last six on the road.
  • The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS their last six vs. Eastern Conference, opponents.
  • UNDER bettors have made a profit 7 of the past eight between the teams.

The (22-29) SU, (22-27-2) ATS Detroit Piston were taken down by the Los Angeles Clippers 111-101 as 2 point hone FAVORITES ATS Saturday night. The Pistons blew a 25 point lead which had fans as along with player scratching their heads.

  • Detroit is 0-3-1 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last four overall.
  • The Pistons are 2-4 ATS their last six at home.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 the last four between the teams in Detroit.
  • UNDER bettors have made a profit in 8 of Detroit last ten overall.

Monday’s game is 7:05 PM EST at Little Caesars Arena in downtown Detroit, Michigan. The Local Television network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Detroit as 4 point home UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 210 points for Monday’s contest.

Denver head coach Mike Malone will coach team LeBron in the 2019 NBA All-Star contest in his fourth year on the bench. The Nuggets could be the most improved team this season after finishing in the basement of the Northwest division in 2017-18. Denver has been getting exceptional performances from an unlikely cast of characters this season.

Reserves Monte Morris and Malik Beasley are doing an outstanding job when called upon, especially with ailments to Harris and Murray.

Leading scorer Nikola Jokic (20.2) points per game are playing at a high level while Paul Millsap (12.0 ppg, and 65. rebounds) brings a sense to toughness his second season on the roster. Denver has the league’s best record playing in back to back situations which they proved with the win in Minnesota, and it’ll be the Nuggets third game in four nights when they face Detroit.

Malone has made believers out of the fans around the Rocky Mountains and has also instilled a win at all costs effort within the Locker room. The Nuggets allow opponents (106.1) ppg which is sixth best in the NBA while the (111.9) they produce on offense is 15th league-wide.

The team of Sports Handicappers at Charliessports has a 500* play on this game tonight as part of our Trifecta lock.

Bovada.Lv list the Denver Nuggets win total at 47′ games for 2018-19.

 

 

The Detroit Pistons are two games out of the eight playoff position behind struggling Miami. Head coach Dwane Casey is looking for more consistency from his team as they demonstrated they need work after Saturday’s collapse.

Point Guard Reggie Jackson is the lone bright spot averaging (20.0 ppg and 6.6 assists) the past five games. Leading scorer Blake Griffin (26.2 ppg, 8.2 RPG and 5.3 apg) is showing he’s capable of taking the team to the next level. Andre Drummond (16.6 points and 14.9 rebounds) can dominate in the post, but his free throw shooting is sometimes a problem when they have a lead. However, he’s too intimidating on the boards to take off the floor.

The Pistons offense averages (105.5) ppg but they can hit the boards and play tight defense. An indication of how bad things got Saturday against the Clippers is Lou Williams scored 16 straight points for the visiting team from Los Angeles. Casey knows his team has their work cut out tonight and will look for Griffin, Drummond, and Jackson to play with passion in what could be a season defying game for the Pistons.

Reserve Center Henry Ellenson is questionable tonight with an ankle injury. The Detroit post players must take the matchup with Jokic and Millsap personal to come away with a win against a tired Denver team.

Bovada.Lv list the Detroit Pistons win total at 38 games for 2018-19.

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.

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.
