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!

Kansas Jayhawks vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders NCAAB Point Spread Prediction from Jimmy Boyd: February 24th 2018

Kansas Jayhawks vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders
NCAAB Point Spread Prediction: TT -1.5 (February 24th 2018)

I really like the value here with the Red Raiders at basically a pick’em at home against Kansas. I know the Jayhawks are rolling and the assumption is they are just going to win another Big 12 title, but I like how Texas Tech matches up against them.

Keep in mind the Red Raiders went into Lawrence earlier this season and knocked off Kansas 85-73. Texas Tech’s stingy defense held KU to just 45.5% shooting from the field and a mere 23% from deep. I look for the Red Raiders to be even more locked in defensively here at home in front of what will be an electric crowd.

Note that Tech is a strong 11-3 ATS this season when facing strong shooting teams who are hitting better than 45% on the season. They are also 6-1 ATS in their last 7 at home vs a team that’s won more than 60% of their road games.

Adding to all of this is the fact home teams off 2 or more consecutive losses as a road favorite have gone 113-66 (63%) ATS going all the way back to 1997. We also see that road underdogs who are revenging a home loss against a team off 2 or more consecutive losses as a road favorite are just 19-53 (26%) ATS since 1997. Take Texas Tech!
