Milwaukee 115 @ Utah 129 | 02/13 | 2:00 AM UTC

UNDER 233.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: These are two of the best offenses in the NBA from an efficiency standpoint, and that's inflating the total a bit in my estimation. While both teams are great offensively, both are very good defensively as well. But what makes me like the Under here is that Utah moves at a much slower pace, and being at home tonight, I think it'll be able to dictate the style of play more often than Milwaukee can, which will stifle the scoring a bit.

+379 6-2 IN LAST 8 UTA O/U PICKS

Manhattan 67 @ Iona 85 | 02/12 | 10:00 PM UTC

Manhattan +4.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: It is a longstanding principle of mine to bet against teams that haven't played in nearly two months. OK, so it's more of a recent principle than a longstanding one. Still, the point is that this will be Iona's first game since Dec. 23. The legs are extremely fresh, but the shot might be rusty.

+70 4-3 IN LAST 7 CBB ATS PICKS

Calgary 3 @ Vancouver 1 | 02/12 | 3:00 AM UTC

OVER 6

LOSS

ANALYSIS: During its current five-game losing streak, Vancouver is allowing 5.2 goals per game. The Flames have been involved in quite a few higher-scoring games of their own lately. This total feels too low.

Indiana 111 @ Detroit 95 | 02/12 | 1:00 AM UTC

Indiana -2.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Pistons were able to take advantage of Brooklyn's inability to defend the last time out, but while the Nets struggled, I can't look past how much difficulty the Pistons have had defending the interior themselves. That doesn't bode well against a Pacers team with Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner.

+500 5-0 IN LAST 5 IND ATS PICKS
+89 2-1 IN LAST 3 DET ATS PICKS

Miami 101 @ Houston 94 | 02/12 | 12:30 AM UTC

Houston +2

LOSS

ANALYSIS: I'm happy to continue fading Miami as long as it continues to be overvalued. It's a team beset by injuries and an NBA Finals hangover that isn't playing at near the level we saw it at in the bubble. Meanwhile, Houston was seemingly written off after trading Harden, but it's one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, particularly at home. Give me the points.
