I always prefer putting my money on good teams, but tonight I'm gonna step out on some lesser teams who seem to be in the right place at the right time.

MINNESOTA -6 over Phoenix. Relatively small number to have against the worst defensive team in the NBA. My model's got Minny winning by double digits.

LAKERS +14 at Utah. Kobe's last game in Mormonville. His teammates should rally around him and keep it relatively close against the Jazz.

SACRAMENTO +13 at Portland. Lotta points here. The Kings were sharp last night, winning by 20 over playoff-striving Dallas. Sacto is way out of the playoff hunt but seem to enjoy playing the role of spoiler.

As always, best of luck
