The Wizards played last night and now they welcome in Orlando as -3 favorites in the NBA Odds. However, an underdog teaser on the Magic and Bulls both look like a viable teaser for your Tuesday night.
I’m heading to my bread and butter for the short slate of NBA Odds and starting our plays with a teaser. With the Wizards playing on the second night of a back to back, it’s hard to trust them as -3 favorites. However, it’s hard to trust the Magic too, despite them winning three of their last four.
However, a teaser on the Magic helps with the unease. Although I do think Orlando could be a good play at +3, I know they are a fine play at +8 against a tired Wizards team. Orlando may be starting to turn the corner too, so they have some upside here as a Moneyline team too.
The another leg of our teaser is in Chicago, who despite coming off a back-to-back last night is a +6 underdog on the road against the Pistons. These two teams have yet to play this season, but as divisional opponents, they tend to play each other close. Their four meetings last season had an average margin of victory of just five points.
With Reggie Jackson still coming back and playing limited minutes, the Pistons don’t have enough firepower to blow out Chicago, even with the Bulls playing on no rest.
