New York is only a game and a half out of the top seed in the Eastern Conference but it is taking on water with just two straight-up victories in its last six games. The latest setback, an 88-85 loss to Brooklyn this past Monday as 3.5-point home favorites, dropped the Knicks to 25-14 SU overall and 20-18-1 against the spread. They are 11-8 SU (9-9-1 ATS) on the road this season and the total has now stayed UNDER in four of their last five games.
Denver has now won seven of its last nine games straight-up after this past Sunday’s 121-118 overtime victory over Oklahoma City as a one-point underdog at home. Its overall record is 25-18 and it has gone a profitable 24-19 against the spread. Most of the Nuggets’ problems this season have come on the road where they are 9-15 SU but they are still an even 12-12 ATS. The total went well OVER the 208.5-point total line against the Thunder and it has gone OVER in seven of their last eight games.
Chicago’s 107-105 overtime victory over Toronto this past Wednesday night as a 4.5-point road favorite was its sixth win in its last eight games. It is now 22-15 straight-up on the year but still just 14-23 against the spread. The Bulls stay on the road where they are a rock-solid 11-5 SU and 9-7 ATS. The total has gone OVER in four of their last six games.
The road has not been kind to the Heat this season with an 8-9 straight-up record overall and a 1-3 record four games into their current six-game road trip. Monday night’s 104-97 loss to Utah as 2.5-point road favorites dropped Miami to 24-12 SU and 17-19 against the spread. The total went OVER the 198-point line in that game and it has now gone OVER in its last two games.
It was not pretty, but Houston got back to its winning ways with a 19-13 victory over Cincinnati as a four-point home favorite in last Saturday’s Wildcard Round. The Texans reeled-off 11 wins in their first 12 games, but stumbled down the stretch with a 1-3 record in their last four. One of those losses was a 42-14 pasting against New England as 5.5-point road underdogs.
Seattle makes its second-straight trip to the East Coast after up-ending Washington 24-14 in the Wildcard Round last Sunday as a three-point road favorite. Life on the road has not been all that kind to the Seahawks with a 3-5 straight-up record and 4-4 record against the spread during the regular season.
This game might not get the publicity that some do on the East Coast, but the St. Mary’s-Gonzaga rivalry has been about as good as any in the past few years. These two schools hate each other and it shows every time they meet on the basketball floor. Gonzaga is a top ten team right now, but St. Mary’s would love nothing more than to upset them on their home floor. Can they pull it off as a double digit underdog?

No college football betting expert can predict the entirety of the season before it starts, and few NBA experts could have imagined that this game would become as attractive as it now is. Indiana looked like an unholy mess at the very beginning of its season, stumbling out of the gate with a losing record after two weeks and inspiring very little confidence about its ability to regroup.
