Pick
8 UTA (100) @ Pointsbet

I'm playing on UTAH. The Spurs are fairly heavy favorites here as they enter the day still with a shot at making the play-in while Utah has already locked up its spot. The problem is that the Spurs need a lot of help. They'd need to win and have the Blazers, Grizzlies and Suns all lose to get the 8th seed. They'd need to win and have two of those three lose to get the ninth. While the Blazers don't play until later, the other two play before the Spurs. Considering that both the Grizzlies and Suns are favored, there's a real chance that the Spurs will be eliminated by the time they play, or shortly after their game starts. Of course, if that was the case, they wouldn't be favored by as much as they are. Either way, I expect the Jazz to give them all they can handle and am grabbing the points.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
