Pick Details

(555) San Antonio vs. Portland (556) 3:00 PM | Mon, Jan 18 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 229
Over 225 (-107) @ Betamerica

The set-up: When both teams play to several "overs" or "unders" in a row leading up to a game, that's when a contest comes onto my radar as one to look into further. That's the case here, as both the Spurs and Blazers enter this one having played to a few straight "unders" in a row. This is a big game for both teams though as they look to earn a victory here and now I think this number has gotten a little too low.

The pick: Both teams take care of the ball really well, and that usually translates into more shot production from the floor as well. More shots = more points. Additionally note that the Blazers have seen the total go "over" the number in seven of their last ten after playing to or more straight "unders" in a row. This number is low, the play is the over.

The is a 10* TOTAL OF THE WEEK on the OVER Spurs/Blazers.


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.
