Pick Details

(507) Dallas vs. Milwaukee (508) 7:30 PM | Fri, Jan 15 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1100) - Final Total 221
Over 228 (-110) @ williamhill

The set-up: This is a big total, but these are two teams which can score. Dallas' scoring has been down of late, but with the return of Kristaps Porzingis and off a 104-93 win over Charlotte last time out, and off three straight victories, I expect a more wide-open affair in this non-conference matchup. This is a featured game on Friday night, as the eyes of the basketball World will primarily be focussed on this contest. I expect each side to puash the pace and I don't see a lot of defense being played tonight.

The pick: I'll point out as well that Dallas has seen the total go "over" the number in eight of its last 11 road games after winning and covering in its last outing, while holding its opponent to under 95 points, while Milwaukee has seen the total eclipse the number in seven of its last ten after playing to three or more straight "unders." This number is a low.



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.
