New York Knicks +4.5

The New York Knicks has their three-game winning streak snapped vs. the depleted San Antonio Spurs last night, but we look for them to bounce back vs. the Memphis Grizzles here.

After all, this has been a Visitors Series, as the road team is 10-4 against the spread in the last 14 head-to-head meetings. The Knicks are playing up tempo this season, still averaging 99.3 points per game this season despite that 80-point debacle last night, and they are very capable of running the Grizzlies out of their own building.

Now Memphis is 2-0 straight up and ATS at home, but they are only averaging 88.0 points per game in those two victories. The have also now allowed 100 points or more in four consecutive games, and given the success of the Knicks offense this year, 88 points simply will not get it done here.

At the very least, the Grizzlies are a vulnerable favorite given the recent struggles of the defense, so take the points with the Knicks in what could be a possible upset.

Pick: Knicks +4.5

NEW ORLEANS  VS LA LAKERS

The Lakershow continued yesterday with a win at Dallas, in a game who even though they trailed, they managed to win the game down the stretch and even cover the spread! Today they will face the Hornets in New Orleans, in a duel between the two most powerful teams in the West (in theory at least). I understand this spot may bring an offensive letdown for the Lakers, however this line is at 194 points, I know most part of the public is on the over, but sometimes the public and I think that's the case on this game.

The Lakers are a team with conditions to score a lot of points in every game, as they have a lot of offensive solutions. They have Kobe, they have Gasol and Bynum on the frontcourt and a very strong bench who scores a lot of points.

We can say the same about the Hornets, with Chris Paul this team is a power club, the question is that we have 194 points in a game between two great offensive teams, which is a low line. On the four games of the series last season, the games ended with 211, 206, 189 and 222 points. And I see this game to have conditions to have at least 200 points.

The Lakers have been defending well on these six games, but they have had an easy schedule, with several days off to rest between games, which isn't the case of today. This will be a back to back game for the Lakers and yesterday's game was very intense. I've also noticed that the Hornets will try to raise the pace of today's game.

Point guard Chris Paul said the Hornets have to push the tempo to be effective.

"They have two guys who are huge, Gasol and Bynum. Even though those guys are capable of running, we are going to try to keep them running for 48 minutes. Hopefully they will get tired."

Come to this, I expect a good game with about 200 points being scored today. Take the over in here.

Regular Play on Over 194,5

Los Angeles Lakers at New Orleans
Pick: New Orleans -1.5

The New Orleans Hornets will face the unbeaten Lakers tonight in the Bayou. The Lakers needed a big fourth quarter rally to escape the Mavs last night. This will be the third game in four nights for the Lakers, all at different venues and although this is early, that is never easy especially against a top opponent. For the Hornets this is a big measuring stick game. They will bring everything they have because it is a great chance for them to validate they can play with what looks like a Championship caliber team, which the Hornets could be themselves. They fared well vs the Lake Show last year winning twice and covering three of the four games played. I like them here in what should be a statement game and focused, peak performance.

1 Unit on L.A. Clippers -7

The L.A. Clippers are finally healthy and you will now see this team start to play up to their potential.  Marcus Camby and Baron Davis are back on the floor after missing some time early in the season due to injury.  It all came together for the Clippers in a 103-92 home win over the Dallas Mavericks in their last game on Sunday.  The Clippers have now had a couple days to get ready for tonight’s home game with the Sacramento Kings, who are really banged up right now.  After losing to the Pistons 100-92 at home last night, the Kings are now asked to play on back-to-back nights when they travel to L.A. Wednesday.  The Kings will be asked to try and be competitive tonight despite playing without 3 of their best players in Kevin Martin, Quincy Douby and Francisco Garcia.  This trio makes up the Kings’ best 3 scorers and Sacramento will not be competitive tonight without them.  The Kings are 0-4 on the road this season, getting outscored by 20.0 points/game.  Sacramento hasn’t even showed up when they’ve traveled away from Arco Arena.  This game will be a blowout from start to finish where a banged-up Kings’ team has no chance of competing against a healthy Clippers’ squad led by Baron Davis.  Cash in with the Clippers as the favorite.

1* on Atlanta Hawks +10.5

The Atlanta Hawks continue to get no respect tonight.  All the Hawks have done is win their first six games of the season for a 6-0 record.  This is a team looking to get revenge on the Boston Celtics after they were knocked out of the playoffs in a 7th game over the summer.  Atlanta is the real deal this year and they are getting great contributions across the board.  Al Horford recorded a career-best 27 points and 17 rebounds in a 113-108 win over Chicago on Tuesday.  But with guys like Mike Bibby, Josh Smith and Joe Johnson leading the way, it’s easy to see how the Hawks have been so dominant to star the season.  Atlanta has won the majority of their games away from home, making their undefeated record even more impressive.  The Hawks are 4-0 on the road this season where they are limiting their foes to just 89.2 points per game.  This kind of defensive effort gives Atlanta a good chance to keep it close, and perhaps pull off the upset tonight over the defending NBA Champs.  Take Atlanta and the points.

Phoenix Coyotes vs. Columbus Blue Jackets 
Play: Phoenix Coyotes +110       

The Coyotes are playing great hockey right now and they just beat one of the best teams in the NHL (San Jose) so I look for them to carry the momentum on the road tonight. The Blue Jackets powerplay has been anything but solid at home this season converting just 9.8% of their chances with the extra man while their opponents are converting 20.5% of their chances against them on the powerplay. The Blue Jackets are just 1-6 in their last 7 games against a Pacific division opponent and they are also just 4-12 in their last 16 games after a win. The Coyotes penalty kill has been very solid on the road this season with opponents converting just 7.4% of their chances with the extra man so I look for them to have a lot of success tonight against the Columbus powerplay that is struggling. Grab the value and take the Phoenix Coyotes on the moneyline.

New Jersey Devils Money Line (+) vs NY Rangers

The Devils are “wounded” without Martin Brodeur between the pipes and the Rangers have had a stranglehold on this series in recent meetings and this is part of the reason why I prefer not to use New Jersey as a “pay play” but there is still value with the Devils in this spot! Plus, at what is truly a nice underdog return, that’s why you’re reading about them here! The Devils are coming off of a home loss against the Oilers on Sunday. However, they battled and battled in that game after falling behind 2 to 0. It just appeared to be one of those games where, after a slow start, New Jersey did have all the edges later in the game and, if they played long enough, the Devils would have completed the comeback. However, as it was, New Jersey ran out of time of course and, not only do they have extra hunger from that loss, they also have positive momentum to build off of after playing so well for long stretches in the 2nd and 3rd periods of their loss to the Oilers. Kevin Weekes should be back in goal for this game and he’s played better than many have expected. Look for him to get the job done against a Rangers club that is slumping after their torrid start to the season. The Rangers have lost four of their last five games and it appears that the Devils are catching New York at the right time to avenge their road loss from the first game in this series this season. The Devils lost 4 to 1 in New York on October 13th. Today, with big line value as a home dog, the Devils simply aren’t getting enough respect and they are capable of taking down the slumping Rangers!
