Pick Details

(513) Orlando vs. Minnesota (514) 8:00 PM | Wed, Jan 20 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1080) - Final Total 193
Over 217.5 (-108) @ Betamerica

I'm playing on Orlando/Minnesota OVER the total. While these teams both saw their MLK Day games finish below the number, I'm expecting a high-scoring affair this evening. These teams met twice in 2020 and those games had combined scores of 250 and 261. Including those results, the T-Wolves have seen the OVER go 38-20 in non-conf. games the past 2+ seasons, 18-4 against Southeast Division opponents. During the same span, the Magic have seen the OVER go 15-7 against teams from the Northwest Division and 36-27-1 in non-conf. action overall. This season, Orlando road games are finishing with an average of 221.6 points while Minnesota home games are averaging 223.3 All things considered, I feel that the line could easily be higher. Expect a shootout, the final combined score finishing above the relatively low number. 


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.
