October 26 NBA Action: Two Spreads Plays
Our sole against-the spread play for the first day of the 2016-2017 NBA season missed, as the Jazz led the Blazers 83-77 through three quarters, but could manage only 21 fourth quarter points, while Portland exploded for 36 (Lillard chipped in 39 on the evening, while McCollum put up 25 points en route to a nine point win).
For Wednesday, our computer simulation work is unanimous on the following two picks:
Brooklyn Nets @ Boston Celtics -11 -110
Charlotte Hornets @ Milwaukee Bucks +2 -110
We make the Celts to be about 13 points better than the Nets tonight, while we see the Hornets and Bucks as virtually even.
