New York Knicks @ Indiana Pacers
Game# 533-534

The current NBA odds at 5Dimes is displaying a total of 208.0 on this Eastern Conference contest.

New York has witnessed each of their previous 4 games going under the total. As a matter of fact, there was only an average of only 198.0 points combined being scored throughout their last 3 outings.

Pacers Knicks free playAccording to BetOnline, the Knicks are presently an 11.5-point underdog. New York has gone under in its previous 4 as a road underdog of 10.5 or greater.

The Knicks will be playing their 6 games in 10 days on Tuesday. They’ve gone 11-2 under this season when playing 6 or more games in a 10-day period.

Indiana has seen 7 of their last 8 games as a home favorite stay under if there was a total of 220.0 or less. As a matter of fact, the Pacers are 5-0 under during this 2018-2019 regular season campaign as a home favorite of 11.0 or more and if there was a total of 220.0 or fewer. Those 5 contests averaged just a collective 193.4 points scored per game.

The Pacers have gone under in their last 3 games they’ve played. During that time, they’ve struggled offensively while scoring just 97.3 points per outing and shooting a poor 40.3%.
Pick: Under 208.0


Cleveland Cavaliers @ Philadelphia 76ers
Game# 535-536

The betting odds at Bookmaker indicates that there’s a total of 222.0 on this game between the Cavaliers and 76ers.

During the past 2 seasons, Cleveland has gone under in all 15 of their games against Eastern Conference teams when playing with no rest and there was a total of 209.0 to 224.5. The Cavaliers are also 5-0 under on the road this season when playing with no rest against conference opponents.

Philadelphia has stayed under in 7 consecutive games and has done so by a cumulative 109.5 points.
Any NBA team (76ers) playing in March with a total of 220.0 or less that gone under the total by 48 points or great during their previous 7 appearances, resulted in those games going 50-17 (74.6%) under since 1996. The average total in those 67 contests was 225.8 and there were 216.9 points scored per game.
Pick: Under 222.0


Los Angeles Lakers @ Chicago Bulls
Game# 539-540

The NBA betting odds at Bovada is showing a total of 225.0 for this non-conference game.

The Lakers last 5 away games have manufactured 235.6 points scored per occasion. Throughout that precise time frame, they allowed 123.6 points per game, and were also able to shoot an impressive 48.3% themselves.

LA Lakers Chicago Bulls free pickChicago has permitted its last 5 opponents to score 115.6 points per game and shoot 49.3% which includes 44.4% from 3-point territory.

The Lakers are coming off a 120-107 home loss to Boston in their last game. Conversely, Chicago was a 131-108 loser at Detroit during its previous outing. A combination of those 2 results and the current total sets up an extremely profitable NBA betting algorithm.

Any NBA team (Lakers) with a total of 220.0 to 229.5 that’s coming off a game which manufactured 225 points or more being scored, and they’re facing a team (Bulls) that saw a combined 235 points or greater scored during its previous outing, resulted in those contests going 105-49 (68.2%) over the total throughout the past 5 seasons. The average total in those 154 games was 225.5.

Currently, there’s been a high percentage of individual bets and total money wagered been placed on this one going under. I’m taking a contrarian approach when making one of my NBA totals picks pertaining to this game.
Pick: Over 225.0
