With the news that Al Horford will miss tonight’s game for the Celtics, it leaves a big NBA Odds hole for the Heat. After opening at +3½ home underdogs, they are quickly being bet down, so with a high scoring game predicted for the Sixers and Raptors, add the Heat on a teaser with the over in that one for some ticket-cashing tonight.
Two Team Teaser
With the news that Al Horford will be out tonight due to the birth of his child, the Celtics are now potentially a team to fade. Without Horford on the court this season, the Celtics are averaging nine points less per 100 possessions on offense and they are giving up over 10 more per 100 possessions on defense.
We don’t know yet about the status of Goran Dragic, but if he ends up playing tonight, the Heat as home underdogs in the NBA Odds are a great value. However, because we don’t yet know Dragic’s status, tease this line up to +8 ½ as a safe and valuable play on the first leg of our teaser.
The second leg is all about the total between the Raptors and Sixers. Without Joel Embiid protecting the rim tonight, the Raptors might drop 120 points on Philadelphia. Their offense has been good lately, averaging nearly 113 points per game in their last 10 games, while scoring 112.8 points per 100 possessions. Tease it down and take the over for your NBA predictions.
