Kings vs. Grizzlies
Kings
+7½ -107
  at  5DIMES
in 1h

With Gay out for the season and with the team having lost three straight, many won't give the Kings much of a chance tonight. This has actually been one of their better roles though. In fact, they're 3-1 ATS as road underdogs in the 6.5 to 9 range this season and 13-4-2 ATS (10-9 SU!) their last 19 in that situation. Also, they're 5-1 ATS the last six times that they were off three or more consecutive victories, most recently knocking off Detroit. 

The Grizzlies have dropped two in a row and three of their last four. The lone win came by only five points. They're only 3-5 overall in 2017 and all three victories came by single-digits. While the Grizzlies outscore teams by an average of only three points at home, the Kings only get outscored by an average of 3.9 on the road. Consider grabbing the points. 

Ben Burns has ALWAYS dominated the pro hardwood & he's off to a SENSATIONAL start once again this year. In fact, w/ yesterday's G.O.W. winner on Miami, part of a 4-2 Thursday, Burns' NBA is now an AMAZING 24-5 ATS in '17. That includes a 10-2 mark his L12 & an 18-3 RECORD the past two weeks. Don't wait any longer. Get down on Friday's top-rated "PERSONAL FAVORITE" right away!

Nets vs. Pelicans
Pelicans
-10 -108
  at  5DIMES
in 1h

10* Free NBA Pick (Pelicans -10)

New Orleans comes in off a 118-98 blowout win at home over the Magic on Wednesday and I'm expecting a similar type of outcome here against the Nets. While the Pelicans are just 17-26 overall, they are only 1-game back of Denver for the 8th and final spot in the west. New Orleans is also a much better team than their record would suggest, as injuries really limited them early on. This is the 2nd game of a 6-game homestand and they know this is their chance to make a run. They also know they can't afford to lose this game, as the Cavs, Thunder and Spurs are on deck. Brooklyn is definitely a team they can defeat by double-digits. The Nets are clearly the least talented team in the league and come in having lost 11 straight with 5 of the last 6 coming by double-digits. Brooklyn is also a miserable 1-18 on the road this season, where they are getting outscored by 11.5 ppg. Give me the Pelicans -10!

Warriors vs. Rockets
Total
237½ -110
  at  BMAKER
in 1h
This is a Free #NBA play on [email protected] to go UNDER the total.

All eyes will be on Houston Friday, when MVP favorite James Harden and the Houston Rockets host the Golden State Warriors. There are plenty of interesting storylines here.. a revenge spot for the Warriors who lost to the Rockets in OT at home earlier this year. Or if could be a let down spot for the Dubs, coming off a blowout win over the Thunder, with KD scoring a whopping 40 points against his former team. I'm not interested in picking a winner here, as I've got my eyes on the total. The over/under is set at an enormous 236.5 points, and I simply can't resist betting the under with such an inflated number. The last time these teams met, the final score was 132-127 for Houston. Only 228 of those points were scored in regulation though, and only once in the last 10 meetings have these teams combined for more than 228 points. That was a 123-110 home win for the Warriors, and those 233 points still fall short of tonight's total. The Warriors have now gone under 10 of their last 11 road games. Even for those who think this game is going to be a shootout, there's just no value betting over with such an inflated total.

Take UNDER.

Dave's Friday Free Play:

1* on Los Angeles Lakers +3.5

The Key: I like the price we are getting with the Los Angeles Lakers tonight as home underdogs.  They are a respectable 10-13 at home this season.  The Indiana Pacers are just 6-14 SU & 6-14 ATS in all road games this year.  They were fortunate to win in Sacramento on Wednesday after erasing a 19-point halftime deficit.  The Lakers have had 2 days off having last played on Tuesday, so expect a big effort from them here tonight.  The Pacers are 2-10 ATS in road games following a win this season.  The Lakers are 21-9 ATS in their last 30 home games off 4 or more consecutive losses.  Take Los Angeles.

Dave finished as the #1 Ranked Overall Capper in 2012 by a LANDSLIDE! He has put together a 2603-2258 Overall Run that has his $1,000/game investors up $89,880!

#7 Ranked NBA Capper on this site!

KEN LOWDEN's FREE PICK

Take the Houston Rockets (+6).

Houston (33-12) is scoring 115.7 points per game in their building and are going to be tough to beat, let alone by 7 points, even against the Golden State Warriors (36-6). These two teams met up on December 1st at Golden State, where Houston handed the Warriors a 132-127 loss. Now meeting up in in their own gym, Houston will be much more likely to take down the Warriors yet again this season.

Take Golden State (#863)

Teddy is stepping up in NBA action on Friday, locked and loaded with a relatively rare Big Ticket winner tonight!  And you don’t want to miss out on Teddy’s AFC and NFC Championship Game winners in NFL action on Sunday!  Get onboard NOW!

When these teams met for the first time this season, the Warriors were laying -11 to the Rockets at home.  Golden State never led by more than four points at any point during that game, eventually losing outright in overtime.  The key to Golden State’s weakness that night?  Nothing more than a rare poor shooting game from their starting backcourt, as Steph Curry and Klay Thompson combined to hit just 13-42 from the floor.  Meanwhile, Houston role player Ryan Anderson came off the bench to score 29, including five backbreaking three pointers.

Anderson has missed the last two games with the flu, no sure thing to suit up or be effective this evening.  Here’s the quote from Rockets head coach Mike D’Antonio, following Houston’s loss in Miami earlier in the week with an injury depleted roster: “These are dog days. We're going to have to find some energy and see if we can sneak one out."

It’s been an impressive first half of the season for the Rockets, currently sitting at #3 in the West – this is not a desperate, hungry team, especially off their national TV win and cover against Milwaukee on Wednesday Night, taking the sting out of that previous loss at Miami.  But from a scheduling standpoint, the Rockets are really up against it right now.  This will be Houston’s seventh game in the last 11 nights (the first six all involved court changes and travel too).  And it’s the first night of back-2-backs – they’ll play their 8th game in 12 nights tomorrow at Memphis.

That stands in sharp contrast with the Warriors scheduling spot.  Golden State just completed an 11 day homestand in which they played only four games, allowing head coach Steve Kerr to get some much needed practice sessions in.  As a result, all of a sudden, the Warriors are playing championship level defense, ranked #4 in the NBA in defensive efficiency this month.  Their offense is playing at an extraordinarily high level as we’ve clearly seen in Golden State blowout wins over the likes of the Cavs and Thunder in their last two games.

When the Warriors are in rested and in sync, like they are right now, they’re as good as any NBA team in modern history.  Coming off those two impressive home blowouts, I wouldn’t be shocked in the slightest if Golden State wins by margin again tonight, covering the spread with room to spare.  Take the Warriors.

1* Free Play UNDER Steelers/Patriots.

What more can be said about these two teams which hasn’t literally been said a million times at this point. The Steelers and Patriots are both very familiar to the postseason over the last ten years. New England is led by QB Tom Brady and Pittsburgh is led by Ben Roethlisberger. These are two of the most capable QB’s in NFL history. Last week the Steelers held on for an 18-16 road win in Kansas City. Roethlisberger had 224 yards and zero TD’s. RB Le’Veon Bell had 170 rushing yards. Note that Pittsburgh scored an average of 24.9 PPG in the regular season to rank the team 11th overall. Pittsburgh looked great defensively in the win over the Chiefs, holding them to just 227 total yards. The Patriots pulled away for a 34-16 win over the Texans last weekend. While New England was third overall on offense with an average of 27.6 PPG, it was its defense which was the difference maker this year, finishing No. 1 in allowing 15.6 PPG. The bottom line is, we’re expecting more of a “chess match,” where field position ends up playing a big part in the final outcome. The Steelers had a difficult time against the Chiefs on the road, but now face the top defense in the league. This number is just a little bit high in our opinion, consider a second look at the UNDER in the AFC Championship game.

Jack's Free Pick Friday: Utah Jazz -6

The Dallas Mavericks are in a very tough spot here.  They will be playing the 2nd of a back-to-back and their 3rd game in 4 days after playing in Chicago on Tuesday and in Miami on Thursday.  That's a lot of travel in such a short time frame, and they won't be ready for the Jazz tonight.

Making matters worse for the Mavericks is the fact that the Jazz come in well-rested and ready to go.  They last played on Monday, giving them three days' rest coming in.  It has allowed them to get healthier as George Hill is expected to play tonight after previously nursing an ankle injury.

Hill averages 18.1 points and 4.3 assists per game this season and the Jazz have been much better with him than without.  He has missed 24 games this year, and they will be dangerous going forward if he can stay healthy.  He does a great job of running the offense while also playing suffocating defense on opposing point guards.

Utah is 18-8 ATS as a road favorite over the last two seasons.  The Jazz are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 road games vs. a team with a losing record in the second half of the season.  Dallas is 1-9 ATS in home games vs. teams who make 46% of their shots or better in the second half of the season over the last two seasons.  The Mavericks are 2-11 ATS in their last 13 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.  Bet the Jazz Friday.

Pacers vs. Lakers
Pacers

Indiana -3

The Pacers head into the Staples Center Friday night and given how bad the Lakers have played lately, it's time to start fading this team on a regular basis. Los Angeles has dropped 5 straight and and continue to struggle when it comes to covering the number.

The Lakers are just 19-26 ATS and are now only 10-13 at home. Digging themselves too big of holes has been the biggest factor, as they consistently find themselves down double digits early on.

Some trends to note. Lakers are 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. Lakers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up loss. The Lakers are just a mess right now.

This isn't a good matchup for them against Indiana, as the Pacers are solid following a win.

Back Indiana ATS.

Good Luck, Razor Ray.

Free Pick on Jazz -

Utah comes into this game having won 4 straight and 9 of 12 overall. I look for the Jazz to carry over that momentum with a comfortable win on the road against the Mavericks. This is not a great spot for Dallas, who will be playing on no rest after last night's 95-99 loss at Miami. Not only are the Mavs in the 2nd game of a back-to-back set, but this is also their 3rd game in 4 nights with the last two both on the road.

Dallas simply doesn't have the talent to hang with a top-level team like the Jazz on tired legs, especially one like Utah, who is so dominant on the defensive end and playing with a full 3 days of rest. The Jazz are 2nd in the NBA in defensive efficiency and allowing just 94.9 ppg. Dallas is 25th in offensive efficiency and are scoring just 95.7 ppg. Utah isn't an elite offensive team, but are moving the ball well right now, as they have scored 100+ in each of their last 4 games. I just don't see the Mavericks being able to keep pace offensively with Utah and that should allow the Jazz to win here by double-digits.

The Jazz are 18-8 ATS in their last 26 as a road favorite and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games against a team with a losing home record. Dallas is 2-11 ATS in their last 13 home games against a team with a winning road record and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 when their starters combined for 160 or more minutes in their previous game. Take Utah!
