After nailing two out of my three NBA Picks last night, including accurately predicting the Warriors downfall ATS, I am back once again with  more winning picks for Sunday. 

Sixers vs. Raptors
We missed out on cashing the over with the Sixers on Friday night, however there is still some nice value tonight with Philly heading into Toronto. The NBA Odds have the Raptors as huge -12 ½ favorites, and as you can probably guess, with such a high number, I am laying off the spread and going with a play on the total instead. At 193, while the total is a little high for the Sixers road struggles, the Raptors are missing two starters still, and they are likely their two best defensive starters. I think the Sixers can take advantage of that tonight in Toronto, and score a few more. The last two meetings between these two teams have gone over the total, and in the two games both teams were well above 100 points. One of those games was already this season as well.

The Raptors are 7-4 cashing the over at home this season, and they have cashed the over at home in five of their last seven home games. With the Sixers giving up 105 points per game to Eastern conference opponents this season, and with the over at 7-3 in their last 10 games against one another, I am tailing the trends and going for a high scoring game.

NBA Pick: 76ers & Raptors OVER the Total
Best Line Offered: 192 (-105) at Heritage

Grizzlies vs. Heat
The Memphis Grizzlies have been up and down this season, and Sunday they have a tough matchup against the Heat down in South Beach. The NBA Odds have the Heat as -3 ½ favorites, with a total of 189 ½. While the spread is a no-go for me this Sunday, the 189 ½ point total is quite intriguing. Even though it is the lowest total of the night, it also has the best under value of all the NBA Odds this Sunday.

Miami’s defense and pace has been good and slow this season, and it has led them to being the best under cashing team in the league. Most of their wins have come at home this season, and on the year they are 17-4 cashing the under. With the Grizzlies coming in at 7-4 cashing the under on the road it seems only fitting. This should be a knock down, drag out game, that has the pace of a college game, and the defense that could keep one or both of these teams in the upper 80s to low 90s.

Miami has given up less than 94 points per game at home this season, and to go along with that Memphis is one of the worst road scoring teams in the NBA. Dating back to last season, the under is 11-4 for the Grizzlies on the road, while this season the under is 10-3 for the Heat when playing at home. Look for the Heat’s defense to stifle the Grizzlies’ poor road offense, and the under to be the NBA Pick on this early evening game tonight.

NBA Pick: Grizzlies and Heat to go UNDER the Total
Best Line Offered: 189.5 (-105) at Pinnacle
