    Wednesday's Tip Sheet
    November 9, 2016


    Underdogs came through on Tuesday night by covering in five of six games, including outright victories by the Hawks, Nets, and Mavericks. Atlanta handed Cleveland its first loss of the season in a 110-106 win as 7 ½-point ‘dogs, while Brooklyn improved to 5-1 ATS by knocking off Minnesota, 119-110. The Suns rallied back but fell short at Portland in a 124-121 setback as 8 ½-point underdogs. The Kings were the lone favorite to cash last night by beating the winless Pelicans, 102-94 to barely cash as 6 ½-point chalk.

    Game of the Night – Blazers at Clippers (-9 ½, 208) – 10:35 PM EST

    Portland eliminated a beat-up Los Angeles squad in the opening round of the playoffs last season as Chris Paul and Blake Griffin were injured. The Clippers picked up some revenge in their first matchup this season in a 114-106 triumph at the Moda Center as 2 ½-point favorites on October 27. Paul and Griffin each scored 27 points to lead Los Angeles, while limiting the Blazers to 4-of-18 shooting from three-point range.

    The Blazers travel to Staples Center with no rest tonight after holding off the Suns on Tuesday, 124-121. Portland built a 42-25 advantage after the first quarter, but Phoenix didn’t give up as the Suns put up 39 points in the fourth quarter before coming up short. Damian Lillard paced Portland with 38 points as the Blazers shot 56% from the floor. Portland has won a season-high three straight games, while owning a 3-1 SU/ATS record on the highway.

    The Clippers are rolling at 6-1 on the season, while covering in all six of their victories. Los Angeles demolished Detroit on Monday, 114-82, while jumping out to a 30-point halftime edge. Since allowing 106 points to Portland in the opener, the Clippers have limited each of their last six opponents to less than 100 points, resulting in four UNDERS.

    Back-to-Back Spots

    Wolves (+3, 201 ½) at Magic – 7:05 PM EST

    Minnesota stumbled to its fifth loss in six tries this season, coming off a 119-110 setback at Brooklyn as four-point favorites. The Wolves are playing with no rest for the first time this season, as Minnesota posted a 1-8 SU and 4-5 ATS record on the road last season in the second leg of a back-to-back set. Orlando saw its three-game winning streak disappear in Monday’s 112-80 rout in Chicago, but the Magic have beaten the Wolves in five consecutive meetings.

    Nets (+8 ½, 212 ½) at Knicks – 7:05 PM EST


    Brooklyn embarks on a five-game road trip, but the first contest is cross-town at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks. The Nets have been the biggest surprise in the league from an ATS standpoint by posting a 5-1 ATS mark. Brooklyn is 2-0 ATS away from the Barclays Center by cashing as heavy underdogs in close losses to Boston and Milwaukee. The Knicks and Nets split four meetings last season with the home team winning each time, while both Brooklyn losses at MSG came by double-digits.

    Suns (+4, 204 ½) vs. Pistons – 9:05 PM EST

    Phoenix has won only two of its first eight games, but the Suns have played several exciting contests recently. The Suns escaped past the Blazers and Pelicans in overtime, while losing high-scoring games to the Lakers and Blazers to wrap up their road trip. The OVER has cashed in five straight games for Phoenix, as the Suns have allowed at least 106 points in each contest this season. Detroit heads to the Valley of the Sun tonight after getting routed by the Clippers on Monday as the Pistons own an 0-3 SU/ATS record on the road this season.

    Mavericks at Warriors – 10:35 PM EST


    Following an 0-5 start, Dallas has suddenly won two straight, coming off a pair of victories over the Bucks and Lakers. Both wins came without Dirk Nowitzki, who is nursing an Achilles’ injury, while point guard Deron Williams is sidelined with a calf injury. The Mavs rallied past the Lakers on Tuesday, 109-97, limiting their fourth opponent in the last five games to below 100 points. The task won’t be easy tonight against Golden State, who has won five of its first seven games. The Warriors have cashed only twice so far since bringing in Kevin Durant, as Golden State owns a 1-4 ATS mark as a double-digit favorite.

    Head-to-Head Trends

    -- The Celtics swept the four-game series from the Wizards last season as Boston covered in all four victories.

    -- The home team has won five straight meetings between the Jazz and Hornets as the two teams hook up in Charlotte. The UNDER is 8-2 in the past 10 matchups with one of the OVERS hitting in Charlotte’s 124-119 double-overtime home triumph last season.

    -- The Pacers are riding a five-game winning streak against the 76ers since February 2015, while pulling off the three-game sweep last season. Philadelphia has failed to bust the 100-point mark in its last five visits to Indiana.

    -- Atlanta owned Chicago last season by capturing all four matchups, including two blowouts at Philips Arena. The final three meetings finished UNDER the total as tonight’s total is set at 204 ½.

    -- The Raptors have covered in five of the last six meetings with the Thunder, while the road team won each matchup last season. Toronto has cashed in its past three visits to OKC, including as eight-point ‘dogs in a 103-98 triumph last November.

    -- In each of the last two seasons, the Rockets have knocked off the Spurs in the first matchup, but San Antonio won the final three meetings. Houston hopes to continue the first trend tonight in San Antonio as the Rockets have lost their last four visits to the AT&T Center while failing to cover as an underdog each time.

    Early hot takes can be dangerous
    November 8, 2016


    Statement games have ruled the first few sips of the NBA season.

    While not necessarily competitive, the blowouts have been like shots of Espresso, decisively powerful.

    The Spurs crushed the Warriors, spoiling Kevin Durant’s regular-season debut at the new Superteam Arena. Instantly, the “Golden State isn’t going to rule basketball” crowd broke out in song and dance.

    The Warriors then destroyed Oklahoma City last week, backing KD wholeheartedly in the team-building exercise of making sure Russell Westbrook didn’t leave Oracle happy with himself while wearing his photographer get-up.

    Durant caught fire after a slow start and the Thunder were toast. It’s OKC’s only loss of the season through their first seven games, but somehow, the spin on it was that Westbrook is stuck with a bunch of role players. Never mind that it was the same team that had beaten the Clippers in L.A. the previous night, handing them their only loss thus far, but wild exclamations are easy to make this time of year.

    So far, the season has been fun, carving out its niche despite a tremendous World Series and football. Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah returned to Chicago and played conquering heroes on the same day the Cubs had their victory parade. Unfortunately for New York, that happens to be the Knicks best effort of the short season. The Bulls are 4-3, showing signs of cohesion and grit while also having put instances on display that why some observers feel their makeup will never work and Fred Hoiberg will wind up being the first coach fired.

    It feels like Minnesota’s Karl-Anthony Towns, Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo and Phoenix’s Devin Booker have made the greatest strides, set to earn a new level of stardom. Dirk Nowitzki looks a step slower. Some may say he’s done. Others swear Klay Thompson has forgotten how to shoot since he’s sporting about a 20 percent clip from beyond the arc.

    You can make all those statements with a blanket asterisk that it’s far too early to make any real determinations. Instead, all we can do is capitalize on six early trends that will likely shake themselves out, but may be profitable for another few weeks.

    Golden State isn’t going to win 63 games, much less 73. This could hold up. Durant’s flurry of 3-pointers against the Thunder produced a 122-96 rout in a performance no one in the league can touch, but that type of output can’t be depended upon. The Warriors lack of rim protection means they’re going to have to outscore teams on a nightly basis, so on nights where the 3-pointer isn’t falling, as was the case against the Lakers on Nov. 4, they’ll be vulnerable. Golden State has started 5-2, but scored 116 or more in four of the wins, a number higher than the NBA-high 112.9 points per game they average.

    When they fail to reach that number, the Warriors are 1-2, which could be an issue all season since Zaza Pachulia is struggling to protect the rim and the only guy on the roster who can is named JaVale McGee. Golden State has surrendered a 123-point average in its two defeats and has a few dangerous road games ahead with Denver, Toronto, Boston, Milwaukee and Indiana on tap over the next few weeks. I told you to fade Golden State’s win total and stand by that choice, so I expect a few more eyebrow-raising defeats this month.

    Boston can’t defend. The Celtics defensive rating has dipped to last in the league with Al Horford unavailable due to a concussion, and they have allowed 111.8 points per game, currently 28th in the NBA. Only Phoenix and Indiana have been worse. Horford is due back Wednesday, so their ability to defend teams should return to normal. The Celtics are plus-83 with him available and minus-53 without him, so between him and Jae Crowder getting back in the mix, look for the days of Boston giving up 77 points in a half to end. Crowder will be out another week-plus with an ankle injury, but is working to get back for the Warriors visit on Nov. 18. The Wizards, Knicks and Pacers are the next three up between now and next week, so Boston could be vulnerable since all are capable of getting multiple guys going offensively. Brad Stevens’ Celtics have already lost consecutive games and had four separate losing streaks of three games are more last season.

    Pau Gasol and LaMarcus Aldridge can’t share the floor. ESPN’s Mark Stein pointed out that the Spurs have been outscored by 25 points in the 113 minutes these two new teammates have been out there at the same time. The sample size is small, but neither has gotten any faster over the years and there are teams capable of significantly exploiting them in the pick-and-roll. San Antonio has played teams like the Clippers, Jazz, Kings, Pelicans and Heat, who happen to have some of the NBA’s bigger, most athletic post threats, so that may be a factor as well. This should shake itself out as the season unfolds and the chemistry between the two improves, especially with Gregg Popovich and his staff on the case. In the short-term, it’s worth keeping an eye on. The Spurs will play the Rockets twice on Wednesday and Saturday, but sandwiched in between will be a meeting with Detroit’s Andre Drummond, the NBA’s top rebounder. Rematches with Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins and Miami’s Hassan Whiteside are on tap next week.

    Anthony Davis has no help. No denying this one. Despite averaging 30.4 points and 11.9 rebounds per game and opening the season with 95 points in the first two games, the Pelicans are an awful 0-7, joining the 76ers as the lone winless teams remaining. They badly miss point guard Jrue Holiday, who has taken an extended absence to tend to his wife after she underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor. Replacement Tim Frazier is capable offensively, but small, which really limits New Orleans on defense. Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon are now in Houston, Tyreke Evans remains out, so guys like E’Twaun Moore, Solomon Hill, Langston Galloway and rookie Buddy Hield are filling in. All have holes in their game on the wing, and help isn’t coming any time soon. It’s tough to find yourself fading one of the best players on the planet nightly, but that’s what you should do most of the time until Holiday comes back. They’re 2-5 ATS entering a trip to Sacramento on Tuesday.

    Tom Thibodeau won’t transform the Timberwolves overnight. It’s been painfully visible on his face that it hasn’t been a lot of fun watching his young team struggle to get stops and protect the rim. Going in, he knew he wouldn’t have skilled, willing defenders like Noah and Jimmy Butler to build around immediately, but it’s obvious Minnesota’s kids have a lot of work to do to get up to speed. Teams have shot 46 percent against them and have gotten to the line an average of 26 times per game, seventh-highest in the league. Thibs’ concepts are sublime and he’ll mold them into a solid unit, but it hasn’t helped matters nearly that Ricky Rubio got hurt, forcing rookie Kris Dunn into a heightened role. Dunn is going to be excellent and should be a strong defender, but there’s a learning curve ahead. Expect there to be more than a few instances ahead where the tremendously talented Towns, Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine wind up losing to inferior competition.

    That’s worth keeping in mind since they’ll play two of the Eastern Conference’s worst teams, Brooklyn and Orlando, on the road this week, before opening a four-game home stretch where both L.A. teams, Charlotte and Philadelphia come to town, so they’ll be favored often. Eventually, the Wolves are going to be fine and will probably get it together enough to go on a run that allows them to compete for a playoff spot, so the next few weeks are going to be telling since this team needs to stop the bleeding.

    The Wizards and Mavs stink now. While Minnesota’s 1-4 start has been surprising, there are some who feel we should get used to the stumbling that Washington and Dallas have done out of the gate. They’re stuck among the 76ers, Pelicans, Nets and Suns as two of the NBA’s worst teams record-wise through two weeks, but I’m not on board with the opinion that will last. Rick Carlisle and Scott Brooks are talented head coaches who will figure things out and have had obstacles emerge to stunt good starts. The Mavericks have seen Nowitzki limited by illness, Deron Williams dealing with a calf issue and are attempting to get newly acquired Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut acclimated. Brooks has had his Wizards relatively whole, but they’ve gone 0-3 on the road and are still looking to put it all together. The Mavs beat the Bucks for their first win before going out on the road for a four-game road swing that spans both coasts over the next week, while the Wizards have the Celtics and Cavs in town, so neither expected resurgence may come soon, but they’ll get things figured out.

    Wade's Bulls should be favored in Miami

    Dwyane Wade returns to South Florida for the first time in a Bulls uniform on Thursday, which should spark the Heat’s notoriously late-arriving crowd into making sure they’re in their seats for introductions.

    Normally, Heat nation being situated prior to tip-off at American Airlines Arena would normally be an upset on par with Florida Gulf Coast over Georgetown, but there won’t be anything normal about the biggest sporting event of the year there. Because of who’s back in town, Miami fans paying their respects to the most revered player in franchise history is something that should be expected.

    In fact, oddsmakers had to consider something that practically never comes into play when placing a number on this one: the visitors might wind up with a homecourt advantage.

    Think that’s unlikely? Wade, just recently did something once considered impossible in the region. Upon leaving, he inspired debate over who that area’s all-time sporting icon was, Dan Marino, or him.

    Bitter ending will drive former Heat icon

    Miami is listed as only a 1.5-point favorite despite being off on Wednesday night while Chicago is playing a difficult game in Atlanta.

    Don’t question whether he’ll have the juice to make it through games on consecutive nights, especially this early in the season.

    "Even coming off a back-to-back, if my team don't have energy for that night, (it’s) going to be a problem," Wade told reporters after the Bulls destroyed Orlando on Monday. "I expect us to come in and give whatever we have. Go out there, and I want everyone to enjoy the environment, enjoy the moment. It's going to be a great environment to play in. I want our team, early in the season, to experience that kind of environment and try to seize it."

    They’re planning a video montage for Wade and he’ll undoubtedly get a standing ovation, but it could go beyond that for him.

    If anyone boos Wade when he’s introduced, they’ll be drowned out. It wouldn’t be surprising if he’s cheered every time he touches the ball. If the Bulls are down late and Wade squares off against Justise Winslow or Josh Richardson, terrific young second-year defenders he helped mentor as rookies, it wouldn’t be surprising if most Heat fans are cheering on the familiar No. 3 despite him now wearing the Bulls’ red and black.

    This isn't like LeBron James returning to Cleveland, or for that matter Miami. It's not Dwight Howard playing in Orlando for the first time after breaking hearts. Those guys got booed. Throughout the years, players like Shaquille O'Neal, James Harden and Amar'e Stoudemire have returned to old stomping grounds to varying receptions. This won't be like that. This is in the same vein as Karl Malone returning to Utah, Allen Iverson to Philadelphia, Steve Nash to Phoenix, Kevin Garnett to Minnesota or Paul Pierce to Boston. Reverence will reign.

    That should be worth a few points to the books,

    Because of the way he left, walking away from a contract offer that should’ve come earlier and been more lucrative, many of the team’s fans saw Wade’s departure as him moving on so the franchise would. Upon signing with Chicago, he discussed the lure of coming home after commenting that it would’ve been nice to have felt more wanted. He'll turn 35 this January.

    Wade left for a two-year deal worth $47 million that he can get out of after one season, so he got himself a raise over what the Heat offered, but there’s no question his decision to leave wasn’t financial. It was personal.

    This is not just a sentimental return, but a revenge game,

    Team president Pat Riley chose to turn the page. Given what has happened with Chris Bosh, it’s probably the right move to chalk this season up to rebuilding with youth and clearing cap space for a run at free agents next summer, but it had to hurt to see center Hassan Whiteside courted while he was asked to bide his time. The franchise leader in every major category except blocks and 3-pointers made was put on the backburner. Wade has gone out of his way to say how much he loves and respects Riley, but has made no secret he felt slighted.

    Wade and Riley haven’t spoken since last season ended, which tells you how serious the Heat were about keeping him. He's talked to good friend Udonis Haslem. He's texted with head coach Erik Spoelstra and even former backcourt mate Goran Dragic, but the divide between him and Riley is apparently deep.

    “I know who Pat is. It’s no secret to me,” Wade told reporters in Atlanta on Wednesday. “If you’re not with him, you’re against him. That’s just the way he is. You’ve got to understand that, man. I’m cool with it. I’m fine, 100 percent. I was there 13 years and I’ve seen a lot of video tributes. I’ve seen a lot of players come in and go out. And I’ve seen how he responded to them. And I know if you’re not with him, you’re against him.”

    And I know, since Riley can’t get out there and guard him, being 50 years removed from his best days athletically, who this favors in this particular game. Wade, one of the most resilient players of his generation, a three-time champion who has thrived on grit as much as his talent, is going in attack mode.

    Wade still has juice, too. He’s turned back the clock with a few springy dunks to christen his Homecoming and is averaging 16.9 points despite easing into the season by playing a career-low 28.1 minutes entering the Atlanta game. He’s shooting 43.5 percent from 3-points range and 89.7 percent from the free-throw line, numbers that can’t last but would blow out career-bests. Clearly, he’s locked in.

    Heat fans, unlikely to be immune to nostalgia with the wounds still so fresh, are going to back him. “Let’s Go, Heat” will be audible, but there are going to be too many people in that building who’s heart strings are being pulled. This is Wade’s only appearance all season. The die-hards can boo him on his next visit. He’ll be back home in Wade County here. Fans will back him. He’ll bring it.

    That’s why the Bulls should win. It’s why Miami shouldn’t be favored.

    Thursday’s six-pack

    College football trends for Week 10..……

    — Underdogs covered last five NC State-Syracuse games.

    — Auburn lost its last four visits to Georgia.

    — Kentucky is 2-7 vs spread in its last nine games at Tennessee.

    — Underdogs covered six of last eight Stanford-Oregon games.

    — Michigan lost its last three visits to Iowa; Wolverines’ last win in Iowa City was in ’05.

    — Underdogs are 10-4 vs spread in last 14 Oregon State-UCLA games.


    Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings…….

    One personal note before I start today; two people who I thought were friends of mine stopped talking to me during the last few months because of the Presidential election— I wouldn’t vote for the person they support.

    I didn’t and still don’t understand that: I dislike both candidates, so I lost two “friends” for being impartial. Guess they weren’t friends after all. So be it. Life is too short for such BS.

    On to mid-week musings……..

    13) NFL teams are 17-9 vs spread this year in the game before their bye week; they’re 9-5-2 vs spread coming off a bye.

    12) Cincinnati Bengals are 1-12 in their last 13 visits to New Jersey, 0-3 against the Giants, 1-9 against Jets. They started this season in the Garden State with a 23-22 against the Jets.

    11) Replay official in the San Jose State-Boise State game Saturday night was an actual rocket scientist, much like Carrot Top’s dad— the madcap comedian’s dad worked for NASA.

    10) Yoenis Cespedes opted out of the last two years of his, 2-year, $47.5M deal with the Mets, so he thinks he can do better than that.

    How much money do you really need? Unless he does not like playing for the Mets, I’d take their $47.5M and be happy. By renegotiating, he is helming his agents more than he his helping himself.

    9) Showtime’s supposed documentary on Ben Simmons was a major disappointment; it was more of an infomercial than a documentary.

    How do you do a 90-minute movie about a basketball player and not talk to his high school or college coach? I don’t care what his parents or his hangers-on think; none of them will ever utter a discouraging word, lest they offend the meal ticket.

    Ben Simmons made becoming a multi-millionaire sound like quite a pain in the butt— lot of people wouldn’t mind changing places with him.

    8) SEC West is 9-1 vs SEC East this year, with only loss Kentucky’s win over Mississippi State.

    7) Colorado Rockies hired Bud Black as manager, Arizona hired Torey Lovullo. Glad to see the Rockies hire a former pitcher as their manager- they’ve got decent young talent.

    6) Miami Dolphins haven’t turned ball in their last three games, first that has happened in 19 years- those three games were all at home- their next two games are in southern California. Dolphins are 0-3 on the road this year.

    5) Queens College 75, VCU 73— College hoop teams play these exhibitions against teams they’re not supposed to lose to; this is the only one I’ve seen so far this fall where the D-I team lost.

    4) NFL favorites of 7+ points this year are 17-10-1 vs spread.

    3) Ironic that the Buffalo Bills played this Monday night, the night before Election Day. The Pagula family bought the Bills a few years ago, keeping the franchise in western New York.

    Their main competition for buying the Bills back then?

    Donald Trump.

    2) Comedian Don Rickles turned 90 years old this week, so congrats to him on that: I never thought insulting people was all that funny, but people seem to like him.

    1— I’m convinced that running a marathon isn’t healthy; no way is running 26 miles at one time good for you. Remember, the person in ancient mythology who made the marathon famous ran 26 miles to deliver an important message- as soon as he delivered the message, he collapsed and died.

    If he had stopped on the way and had a burger and fries, he would have survived. Maybe had a milkshake, too.
