Atlanta Hawks (+14) @ Detroit Pistons
14 points? This is way too many points for the Pistons who have struggled a lot trying to cover the spread. They are just 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine, and the only team they have blown out recently is the Bobcats. This isn't the same dominating Pistons team from a month or so ago. The Hawks are playing solid basketball of late, lead by Joe Johnson, they've beaten the Pistons before and will not be afraid of them.

Los Angeles Clippers (-5) @ Houston Rockets
Rockets are just flat out terrible at home and without McGrady, they really don't have a chance. Yao can only do so much, and the Clippers will run them right out of their own building.

Hey, i am a NewB for this site, but i have my parlay for today's NBA :
Lakers +9 (i wonder how you(flmmkrz) get +11 for laker?) the max i got is +9
Houston +12
Hawks +21
it's about 1:1.2 payout

Reason:
Laker is desperate for a playoff spot, and in the recent games they only lost by less than 4 points. Althought Celtics is pretty hot in the past week, but +9 is enough to cover Laker tonight

Clipper has never been a good road team, and Rocket has suffered couple loses at home. After the 12+ points defeat from SA, they should be ready to revenge on the clippers.

Hawks +21 or Piston -7 point, in BET365 u can move the spread line up or down by 7 points. But the piston seems a bit slipped these days, and a blow out for the surging hawks seems quite impossible, Thus Hawks +21 is a good choice.

That's why i pick Laker +9, Houston +12, and Hawks +21 as my parlay today

Depending on which book u use, you can add lots of pts to your teasers.

9 point teaser + 2 is the line. Looks like you took a 7 pointer.

Atl is already a 13pt hcp.. add a 7pt teaser and you got 21... odds are probably 1.15-1.18 for the single

ALthough both teams are on a B2b situation, looking at the miuntes the lakers starting 5 logged yesterday against the Cavs against that by the celtics, Lakers are going to be dead on their feet come second half, I don't even think this one is going to be close...

Celtics to cover -1 v Fakers - $1.91

good luck

Means you tease the points down but get lower odds.

For example, Atl line is +13 over detriot.

With a 5 pt teaser you can get Atl at +18.

With a 7 pt teaser you can get Atl at +21.

With a 9pt teaser you can get Atl at +23.

Obviously the odds get lower and lower with every pt you add. Usually people tease multiple games and parlay them together.

You can also tease over/unders. I personally like taking detriot or memphis under games and tease the line to +10 or so...

Or you can do the opposite.. Lets say GS/Tor is under/over at 200. You can tease the line to over 190pts with a 10pt teaser.

NIT, but Michigan moneyline over N.D.
Michigan at home, & they're favored by 3, which considering the heavy backing Notre Dame gets, the true line should be at least 5, making Michigan moneyline at -160 a nice play
big bet for me here

Everything is going the exact opposite of what I thought would happen. So I'll take Rockets ML at 3.00. I'm expecting Clippers to win, but I expected Hawks to keep it close and Celtics to cruise as well. It's backwards day today.

Dub, you go big too much on these lottery plays.. NBA and NCAA bball is all loterry when you play with the spread... :eek:

Thats why you see great NBA betting records at around 58% wins. Really not worth going big unless you know something that'll give you a big edge.

agree with you Twisty, at -5.5 the ml is 1.435 or something like that, that's not enough for some people...... :rolleyes:

Today is an up and down day for me, as i said before i have laker houston and hawks as my parlay, indeed i add another one blazer +10.5 and Norter Dam for +10 for a 100 parlay. Luckily i won that one and the return is 378 in total. but i lost one terrible one on hofstra vs St. xxx. it's another parlay that i have 198 for 891, and i just miss the hostra one game, which they did go to over time and my hope faded as they lost the 5 point lead in the last minute..... heartbreak... but then i go for 110 for manhanttan +6 on 2nd half and they won.... so up and down and a bit up
