I should be disappointed that I split my picks yesterday, but I have to admit I got the lucky cover by the Magic in literally the last 48 seconds. KC and the Chargers featured plenty of flags, until suddenly, it didn’t. Love the call to win the game by LA, even though it killed my pick of KC giving 3.5
Atlanta Hawks @ Boston Celtics 7pm
The Celtics have been putting together patchwork lineups as of late, but it seems like there is no bad combination, as they have rattled off 7 straight wins, and face a Hawks team with only 6 wins total. Gordon Hayward should be back in uniform tonight, and there is no official word as of yet about Jaylen Brown. The total for this game opened at 224.5, and has since dipped to 221.5. This makes it a bit less favorable, but I still see value. Let’s hope this adjustment is still not enough downward!
Illinois-Chicago @ DePaul 7pm – FS1
The UIC Flames will be traveling all the way to…Chicago? to take on DePaul tonight. Does this count as home court advantage still? No matter, DePaul is just a much stronger team on both sides of the ball, as well as how efficiently they score vs. their opponents this year. This line seems low at 9.5, and I wouldn’t be surprised by a double digit victory tonight from the home team.
