New Orleans Pelicans vs. Milwaukee Bucks Over-Under Pick from Jimmy Boyd: February 25th 2018

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Milwaukee Bucks
NBA Over-Under Pick: Over 222.5 points (February 25th 2018)

I’m recommending to play OVER on the total in Sunday’s NBA action that has the Pelicans visiting the Bucks. New Orleans returned from the break with a 124-123 win over the Heat. Anthony Davis had another monster game with 45 points, 17 rebounds, 5 blocks and 5 steals. When he’s playing like this, few teams will be able to slow this Pelicans offense down.

I also think we are seeing Mirotic start to get comfortable with the team and he’s a guy that can give you 20 off the bench on a regular basis.

Milwaukee went into the break losing a shootout at home against the Nuggets 123-134 and were in the middle of another high-scoring game in their first contest back, this time escaping with a 122-119 win at Toronto. Antetokounmpo, Bledsoe and Middleton all chipped in 20+ against the Raptors and when it’s not just the ‘Greek Freak’ shouldering the load, this Bucks offense can be lethal. Milwaukee should only keep getting better offensively, as they just recently got back Jabari Parker (only played in 7 games) and it’s going to take a minute for him to get back to All-Star form (was averaging 20 ppg before getting hurt last year).

The key here is that while both of these teams are rolling offensively, they haven’t exactly been playing a ton of defense and each like to get up and down the floor. The Pelicans have allowed 100+ in 11 straight and are allowing 114.2 ppg over their last 5. Milwaukee has given up 134 and 119 in their last 2 games.

OVER is 16-5 in New Orleans’ last 21 games when playing on just 1 day of rest and 7-1 in their last 8 vs a team with a winning record. OVER is also 15-5 over the last 2 seasons when the Bucks face an explosive offensive team that’s averaging 110 or more points/game. Take the OVER!

Boston Celtics vs. Detroit Pistons Basketball Odds & Prediction from Mike Lundin: February 23rd 2018

Boston Celtics vs. Detroit Pistons
NBA Basketball Prediction: Boston -125 odds (February 23rd 2018)

The All-Star break came at a good time for the Boston Celtics after losing three straight and four of their last five to fall two games behind Toronto for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. I like them to come out strong from the break and pick up the W when they visit the Detroit Pistons Friday night.

Detroit has dropped three of its last four and covered the spread in only one of its last eight games. The Pistons are still trying to figure out how to maximize their offensive potential with the addition of Blake Griffin. “Blake’s different than anybody we’ve had at that spot,” Van Gundy told and other media members. Taking on one of the best defenses in the league won’t help matters…

Celtics are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600 and the road team is 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings in this series. My free pick is on Boston Celtics ML.
