NBA Against The Spread Picks For Monday 11/11
11 November 2019
Everything about Sunday did not go correctly, starting with this bad beat on the early NBA game. We had the Nuggets -2.5 and they has two great spots to secure the cover and blew both. They had a 3 point lead with ball late in regulation only to allow overtime. They had a 2 point lead with ball very late in overtime but could still only muster a 2 point win which makes us a victim of the hook.
The loss on Sunday brings us to 14-7 on the season.
Monday Betting Plays
Houston Rockets at New Orleans Pelicans
Opening Line: Rockets -4 and 243
Current Line: Rockets -4.5 and 242.5
This is a matchup where they simply could not set the total high enough. These teams rank second and third in the league in possessions per game. They both rank bottom six in defensive efficiency and they both rank top five in offensive efficiency. They’ve already met once this year and that game got to 249 and this one could get even higher. James Harden is playing high end right now and the Rockets are getting into a bit of a groove, winning three straight with the two mist current wins coming by at least 17 points. The Pelicans have just two wins on the season and won their last game and to be blunt, they are an awful bet for a winning streak. This game offers two plays in both the Rockets and the over as the Rockets do it better in the matchup of who can play quicker.
