This NBA handicapper's been on a hot streak over the last couple of weeks and he is ready to increase his profit even more with this two-team parlay on Bulls/Pacers & Wizards/Rockets.
Bulls vs. Pacers
The Bulls are heading into Indiana tonight to play the Pacers, and the Bulls are -5 in the NBA odds tonight, with a total of 194 points. This rivalry used to be pretty good, but with the injury to Paul George, and the upgrades the Bulls have achieved, this may be a lopsided game. That’s why I am adding the Bulls to our parlay tonight. The Pacers do have some nice players that will give the Bulls some trouble tonight, but the depth and talent on the Bulls is second to none right now.
The Pacers are healthier at the moment, and with the return of George Hill, they have started to play some better ball. However the Bulls are on a tear right now. Chicago is 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall, and they are 6-2 ATS in their last eight gams as favorites. The Pacers on the other hand are only 1-6 ATS in their last seven games as home underdogs, and at home dating back to last season some, they are 11-23-1 ATS in their last 35 games from Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Look for Chicago’s stars to take over, and look for the bench to outmatch the second unit from Indiana as well.
Wizards vs. Rockets
Washington has established themselves as contenders in the Eastern Conference, but they have a big test tonight as they head into Houston to play the Rockets. At the very least the Wizards have the advantage of facing the Rockets with Houston coming off of a game in San Antonio last night, but even with this the Rockets are still -4 favorites in the NBA Odds, with a total of 198.
Houston lost a tough one last night 110-106, as they were in control of the game at several points in the game, but they let the Spurs keep coming back to keep the game close. However early in the season (which does throw off the statistic some as the season wears on) the Rockets are 5-2 ATS coming off the back to back, which is the fourth best record in the league on no rest. This should even out as we get into 2015, but with the Rockets new infusion of talent, they no longer have to play guys other than James Harden 40 minutes per game.
The battle tonight between John Wall and James Harden should be intense, but I am going a different route for my NBA Picks. With a total of 198, the under is looking like a great play. Houston is 4-3 cashing the under this season coming off a game the night before, and the under is 13-3 for the Rockets at home this year. The Wizards on the other hand have cashed the under in their last four games in a row, and the under is 4-1 for Washington in their last five road games. Both defenses should be ready for a nice East versus West showdown on Monday night, and I am on the under for this part of my NBA pick.
