Tips and Trends

Chicago Bulls at Miami Heat


Bulls: Chicago is riding a five-game road losing streak and has gone just 3-10 away from home this season. The Bulls lost 104-98 at Detroit on Tuesday and has trailed at the end of the first quarter in four straight games. “I can’t do anything but treat it like another game,” Chicago rookie point guard Derrick Rose said. “We need a win too badly, especially on the road, for me to think about anything else." Rose is second among rookies in the NBA with 17.5 points per game and also averaging 6.1 assists.

Bulls are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games vs. Southeast Division.
The UNDER is 9-4 in Chicago's last 13 games vs. Southeast Division.
   
Key Injuries - F Andres Nocioni (head) is probable.
C/F Drew Gooden (ankle) is OUT.

PROJECTED SCORE: 94

Heat (-5, O/U 199.5): Miami forward Michael Beasley will be playing with a chip on his shoulder in this game after Chicago chose Rose over him with the #1 overall pick in this past year's NBA draft. Beasley is fourth among rookies in scoring with 13.4 points per game and has been coming off the bench in the last 11 games after starting the first 15. He will be facing Chicago for the first time. “Me and Derrick Rose, that’s irrelevant,” Beasley said. “It’s me and Chicago, Miami and Chicago. I’ve been thinking about this game for a long time, just because they didn’t pick me. It’s nothing against them. It’s natural.”

Heat are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Friday games.
The UNDER is 7-1 in Miami's last 8 games vs. Central Division.

Key Injuries - NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 105 (Side Play of the Day)

Re: NBA News and Notes Friday 12/26

Houston (19-10, 15-14 ATS) at New Orleans (16-9, 10-13-2 ATS)

The Rockets have won two of three on their current four-game road trip and try to close it out with a victory over the Hornets inside New Orleans Arena.

Houston won and covered the opening two games of the in Minnesota and New Jersey to run its winning streak to four in a row before falling in Cleveland on Tuesday 99-90, narrowly missing out on the money as a 7½-point ‘dog. The offense has been the key to the Rockets’ recent surge, scoring 107 points or more in their last five victories. Over their last 17 games, the Rockets are 12-5 and have scored in triple digits in 11 of those wins.

New Orleans has dropped two in a row (0-2 ATS) after a four-game winning streak (3-1 ATS). The Hornets fell 100-87 at home to the Lakers on Tuesday, failing to cash as 2½-point favorites, and then they went to Orlando yesterday and got walloped 88-68 as five-point ‘dogs. They haven’t topped the 100-point mark in seven straight games, dating back to a Dec. 10 win over Charlotte.

The Rockets have won three of the last four meetings (3-1 ATS) in this series, including a 91-82 victory as a two-point home chalk back on Nov. 15. The underdog has had the upper hand in this rivalry, going 10-4 ATS in the last 14 clashes.

Houston is on ATS streaks of 20-7 on Fridays, 7-2 against teams with a winning record and 10-1 the last 11 times it has been a ‘dog of less than five points. New Orleans is just 1-5 ATS in its last six Friday games and 3-8-1 ATS in its last 12 against teams with a winning overall record, however the Hornets are on positive ATS streaks of 11-3 against teams with a winning road record and 28-10-3 when playing the second night of a back-to-back.

For the Rockets, the over is on streaks of 21-8 on the road, 8-2 against the Western Conference, 6-1 as underdogs and 5-1 when they get two days of rest. On the other hand, New Orleans is on “under” streaks of 7-0 overall, 4-0 against the Western conference, 7-1 against Southwest Division teams and 5-0 as a favorite. Finally, the under is 4-1 in the last five series clashes.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER


Dallas (17-11, 13-15 ATS) at Utah (17-13, 16-14 ATS)

The Mavericks will be trying to extend their winning streak to four when they visit EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City to take on the Jazz.

Dallas is on the second night of a back-to-back and comes to Utah off Thursday’s 102-94 win in Portland, upsetting the Blazers as a 4½-point underdog. The Mavs have won two in a row (2-0 ATS) on the highway and three of their last four away from home (3-1 ATS), and they’re 10-4 ATS on the season as a visitor. The Dallas defense has been the key during its three-game winning streak, allowing just 87.3 ppg. Also, the Mavs have limited the opposition to less than 100 points in seven of its last eight contests.

Utah is back home after wrapping up a five-game Eastern Conference road trip with Tuesday’s 94-86 loss in Milwaukee as a one-point favorite. The Jazz went 2-3 (3-2 ATS) on the trip, with wins in New Jersey and Detroit. They gave up 101.2 points a game on the trip, but at home Utah allows just 94.9 ppg.

The home team won all four matchups between these two last year, with Utah going 3-1 ATS, and the host is on a 17-5-1 ATS run in the last 23 meetings. The Jazz are 6-2-1 ATS in the last nine series clashes and 5-0-1 ATS when hosting Dallas in Salt Lake City.

The Mavericks are just 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games against Northwest Division teams and 2-5 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up win, but they are on positive ATS streaks that include 8-1 on the road and 4-1 overall. Utah is on a plethora of pointspread runs, including 47-22-2 at home, 37-18-1 against Western Conference foes, 16-6 against the Southwest Division and 7-1 following a non-cover.

For Dallas, the under is on runs of 6-2 overall and 5-1 on the second night of a back-to-back, 14-6 after a spread-cover and 53-24 against Northwest Division teams.
