NBA Betting News and Notes Saturday, April 13

Weekend Lean Sheet
By David Banks

Milwaukee at Charlotte

The Bobcats have suddenly become competitive at home going 5-2 straight up in the last seven games in Charlotte, but the real story is the offense topping 100 points in four of those wins. Also, all three meetings between the Cats and the Bucks this season have easily soared 'over' the total with those games averaging a combined 211.3 points. Milwaukee plays at the third fastest pace in the NBA behind Houston and Denver and its defense is ranked 20th in points allowed at 100.3 per game after surrendering 113 points to the offensively challenged Orlando Magic on Wednesday. The Bucks also allow more rebounds than any other team in the NBA at 45.9 per game, which points to their lack of size. The 'over' is 7-2 in the last nine head-to-head meetings between these teams. LEAN: OVER


Boston at Orlando

The Magic are coming off of a 113-103 home upset of the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, but Orlando still owns the second worst record in the NBA at 20-59 and this is not a team that pieces together wins very often. Even with that victory, the Magic are 2-13 in their last 15 games and they have not won consecutive games since back in December. The Celtics lost at home to the Nets on Wednesday despite having both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in the lineup and this team is in dire need of some momentum entering the playoffs, so Boston might take this opportunity to beat up on an NBA lightweight. Orlando is 2-8 ATS in its last 10 home games following a straight up win. LEAN: BOSTON


L.A. Clippers at Memphis

Both of these teams are winning with defense this season. The Grizzlies lead the NBA in points against as of midweek at just 89.5 per game while ranking fourth in field goal percentage allowed and fourth in three-point defense. Add in an offense that ranks just 26th in scoring and you have a 6-0 'under' run going into a Saturday night date in Houston. The Clippers just clinched their first division title in the history of the franchise, and a great deal of the credit needs to go to a defense that is fourth in points against at 94.8 per game and 10th in field goal percentage allowed at 44.4 percent. Los Angeles may also now start considering giving its starters some rest. The 'under' is 14-6 in the last 20 head-to-head meetings. LEAN: UNDER
