WIN
YESTERDAY 4:27 PM

The Sixers lost to the Magic in Jimmy Butler?s debut Wednesday, but that game was on the road. The Sixers are 7-0 at home and will be facing a Jazz team that just lost to the Mavericks by 50 points Wednesday. While that was certainly an outlier performance for the Jazz, I think the Sixers win and cover this small spread.

YESTERDAY 4:26 PM

The Timberwolves are a dreadful 0-8 on the road, but they?ve been a different team at home at 6-1. With the Jimmy Butler saga finally no longer hanging over their heads, the Timberwolves locker room can breathe a sigh of relief. The Blazers have played well this season, but they?ve also played nine of their first 14 games at home. I think the Timberwolves pull out the win, so I?ll take the points.

Thu 11/15

In one of the bigger surprises of the night Wednesday, the lowly Suns destroyed the Spurs by 20 points. The Spurs will likely get Rudy Gay back Thursday, but they will still be without Pau Gasol (foot) in the middle. This won?t be an easy task facing the Clippers on the road for the second night of a back-to-back, especially with the Clippers being 6-1 at home. I?ll take the Clippers to win and cover.

The Suns are 2-11 with the worst point differential (-13.5) in the league. The Spurs are banged up right now with Rudy Gay (rest) and Pau Gasol (foot) out, but they still have enough talent to get the win and cover.

Wed 11/14

This may come as a bit of a surprise considering the Bulls are 4-10, but they?ve been fairly competitive despite all of their injuries. After getting destroyed by the Warriors a couple of weeks ago, the Bulls haven?t lost another game by more than nine points. That includes matchups against the Nuggets, Pacers, Rockets and Pelicans. The Celtics are clearly the superior team, but their point differential is only +1.7. This is a big spread, so even though I think the Bulls will lose, I?ll take the points.
