November 3 NBA Action: Two Totals Picks
The Rockets at the Knicks Wednesday opened with a 58 point first quarter, to the chagrin of our under pick. As if that run and gun effort was not enough, the duo posted 61 in the second, and then another 59 in the third (we tuned out sometime around the half). Our computer work was ultimately vindicated though as an anemic 39 in the back quarter held combined point at 217 -- as close as possible to the 218 line in the sand without negating the trip to the cashier's window. Thus, despite the angst-ridden path to getting there, our totals work improves to 11-5 on the season after last night's out.
We highlight the following two O/U picks for Thursday:
Sacramento Kings @ Orlando Magic o199 -102
Indiana Pacers @ Milwaukee Bucks o212.5 -108
For context, our approach is 2-0 is picking Bucks totals. Before today, the system had not endeavored to call a game featuring either the Kings, Magic or Pacers.
