After cashing both of my NBA Picks yesterday, I am back once again here on Saturday night to give you some more winning plays from the NBA Odds. With eight games to choose from tonight, I have found two more plays for tonight’s slate.

Suns vs. Cavs
Both teams are coming off the back-to-back last night. The Suns made a great 4th quarter comeback to force overtime against the Nets. They ended up doubling the Nets’ scoring in the overtime for the win. The Cavs on the other hand did not handle the Hawks very well last night and lost. Now they have to travel back to Cleveland to play the fast-paced Suns. The NBA odds  have the Cavs as huge -11 favorites in this one, but while I am tempted to take the points, I am more focused on the total of 212.

Alex Len sprained his ankle last night and is considered questionable in this game. If he doesn’t play, it will hurt the already hurting Suns defense against Lebron James and company. With that being said, the over looks like it could be the play between these two tired teams off the games last night.

The over is 4-1 for the Cavs in their last five games following a SU loss, and while both teams are around .500 at cashing the over on the back to back, this late in the season should play to our advantage. The Suns on the other hand have been really food at cashing the over for NBA Odds bettors recently. The over is 7-3 for the Suns in their last ten games overall, and the over is 5-1 in their last six games as road underdogs. Take the over tonight.

NBA Pick: OVER 212 at 5Dimes

Increase Your Profit Tonight With These Three Underdogs

Blazers vs. Wolves
The Blazers' title hopes took a gash with the news that Wesley Matthews will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles. Now they have to welcome in the Wolves tonight without him, and with Minnesota playing better, the Blazers are only a -5 NBA Odds favorite in this one, with a total of 199. The Matthews news doesn’t kill the Blazers, but it does really hurt their shooting. However tonight against a Wolves team that doesn’t play much defense, the over could once again be a really good play.

The over is 5-2 for the Wolves in their last seven games as underdogs this season, and being home should help them with their scoring tonight as well. The Blazers’ defense has not been great this season and recently, and the Wolves should be able to put up around 100 points.

The Blazers have not been great against losing teams recently either, and it has hurt their defensive numbers. This leads to the over being a great play again. In seven of their last ten games against losing teams, the over has cashed for the Blazers. I am foreseeing a game where both teams get into the 100s tonight, and that would make the over an extremely good play. Take it and add it to your NBA picks for Saturday night.

NBA Pick: OVER 199
