Vik (12-7): Both of these teams come into this game in the bottom ten in pace. The Spurs are 25th (99.53) and the Magic are 20th (100.81). With the Spurs playing yesterday, I expect Pop to control the tempo and slow the game down. There is also reverse line movement on the under, even though the public is on the over. The Pick: Magic/ Spurs under 206.5
Jason (17-20-1): Have had some success betting on teams in the 1st half after they played the night before, so let’s see if I can keep that going with the Lakers (+1) in the first half vs Toronto, and the 76ers -1.5 in the first half up the turnpike against the Nets. And in a bounce-back spot, I’ll take the Bucks -10 at home against the hot Kings. The picks: 1st half Lakers +1, 76ers -1.5; Bucks -10.
Ryan (3-7): The Pick: New York Knicks +7.5
