Game 1: Philadelphia 76ers @ Milwaukee Bucks (Teased +5 points to Bucks -0.5), 9:30 p.m. EST
The Sixers are on the second game of a road back-to-back. Not to mention the Sixers game last night in Detroit went into overtime, so they should be extra gassed. That, paired with Ben Simmons not being at 100 percent if he does play, doesn't spell good news for the Sixers against a talented Milwaukee team that historically protects home court. Expect a big night from the Greek Freak and a win from the Bucks in a line that is teased to essentially a pick 'em.
Game 2: Washington Wizards @ Golden State Warriors (Teased +5 points to Warriors -4.5), 10:40 p.m. EST
Betting the Warriors at home is usually a profitable play, but being able to tease them down to a 4.5-point spread seems like a no-brainer. The Wizards are coming into Oracle for their second game of a West Coast road trip after winning a close overtime contest against Portland on Monday night. The Warriors are 3-1 on the year and undefeated at home.
#Warriors are not shooting lots of 3s so far, in 3 games Curry hit 16, but no one else had more that 2...樂— FnA GSWarriors (@FnA_GSWarriors) October 24, 2018
Still very early in the season, let's wait and see. And if you win by 20 who cares how points are scored...
At home tonight against #Wizards...
Dwight Howard is still out for Washington, so expect them to try and match the Warriors small-ball approach. The only problem is Washington isn't nearly as good at it. The Wizards average almost eight fewer assists per game and are surrendering more points per game than they're scoring. That's not a good mix when facing off against the Warriors.
Game 3: New York Knicks @ Miami Heat (Teased 5 points to Knicks +13), 7:30 p.m. EST
This old rivalry always seems to keep burning, no matter what the rosters or records look like. Almost everyone knows about the history between these two franchises and if you don't, it's not a pretty one.
The Knicks-Heat series in 1999 had one of the best finishes ever. To truly appreciate it, you need to understand the violent, familiar rivalry preceding it, and the huge events that made a rematch possible.— SB Nation (@SBNation) October 24, 2018
This is REWINDER.https://t.co/8sKWpqpl0E
The Knicks are losers of three straight, but Miami is riddled with injuries. Hassan Whiteside, Wayne Ellington, and Udonis Haslem are all day-to-day and James Johnson is out. Given all the injuries to Miami and the intensity of this rivalry, expect the Knicks to keep this one close enough to cover a 13-point spread.
