The two early games on the slate of NBA Odds tonight are great teaser values. You have the Hornets getting a banged up Mavs team who just played last night in Dallas, while the Bucks get the lowly Nets in Brooklyn. Take advantage of this with a two-team teaser for our first NBA Expert Pick.
The short slate of NBA basketball lines is a perfect time to bust out a teaser, because even though there may not be lines you’re intrigued by to start, moving some of them 4 ½ to 5 points could be the difference between winning and losing your pick.
The first leg of our teaser tonight is the Bucks, who are only -4 ½ NBA Odds favorites tonight in Brooklyn. The Nets are probably the worst team in the league right now and without Jeremy Lin they have very little in the backcourt. Sean Kilpatrick has been playing well, but ultimately the Bucks are a great teaser play tonight as we tease them down to a pick em.
The other leg is the Hornets, who are -11 favorites against the Mavs, who are coming off a tough game last night against the Spurs in Dallas. After losing that game, they had to get on a plane and travel all the way to Charlotte. The Hornets have played well on both ends of the court this season and against a Mavs team still without Dirk Nowitzki, teasing the Hornets down to -6 seems like a no-brainer to me.
