Pick Details

(555) San Antonio vs. Portland (556) 3:00 PM | Mon, Jan 18 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Win (800) - Final Total 229
Over 224 (-107) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on San Antonio/Portland OVER the total. With McCollum out for Portland and with both teams having played some recent 'unders,' we're working with a relatively low O/U number here. I believe that it'll prove to be too low. Recent meetings between these teams have been high-scoring, the last two games producing 242 and 237 points. Going back further finds the OVER at 7-1-1 the past nine in the series. The Spurs have seen 32 of their past 50 road games, when the O/U line was 220 or more, finish above the number. I'm expecting an up-tempo game and for those stats to improve this afternoon. 


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.
