BULLS are a mess to start their season after trading away their star Jimmy Butler. Taj Gibson was also dealt, and they are now dealing with issues after a practice punch up saw Mirotic earn a broken jaw, and team mate Bobby Portis suspended for eight games.

Raptors should win this but the line is quite big so I’ll chance it on the alternate for a small card.

OKC, who host the Knicks, have made big moves in the summer landing two superstars to help Westbrook in Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. When you have Westbrook, Anthony and George in your line up, that is a match up nightmare, not to add Steven Adams being a top center.

Their only worry could be their bench, with Enes Kanter moving to the Knicks, so he’ll open his campaign on familiar soil albeit in the other locker room. Porzingis has been dealing with a sore hip so might not be 100% too.

Jordan's Tip

  • Raptors -7
  • OKC Thunder -4
  • (3-4, bet365) – 2 points

    I had a 2-1 winning night last night.

    I went with U203 in the Hornets-Pistons game and that one came in with points to spare. With Eminem in town it was nice for the Pistons to get the W for sure. There was some great energy in the crowd and I was concerned that’d help the teams put the score over but thankfully it didn’t

    I also had Grizzlies -2.5 over the Pelicans and that was another easy one. New Orleans started strong but Memphis took over in the 2nd and that was all she wrote. Was nice to see Brooks step up like that and that’s the sort of thing Memphis will need this season.

    My loss was with Heat to cover as the Magic were just too good for them. It got exciting at the end too as the Magic almost blew the 17pt lead they were holding but Evan Fournier stepped up big time for them.

    Onto tonight, as the 6 remaining teams play their first game of the season. In the early game the Raptors with a lot of big expectations take on the Bulls. The Oklahoma City Thunder host the Knicks and the Lakers go up against the Clippers.

    THUNDER vs KNICKS
    Big game tonight as Carmelo Anthony plays against the Knicks.

    This is such an interesting move for Melo – and good for him. The Knicks are just a dumpster fire and leaving there is the best thing for him. This new roster is quite exciting and it looks like a really solid rebuild since KD left.

    Honestly the Thunder are one team I’m super hyped to watch this season. I love the changes there and I think their offense is going to be electric. I’ve been counting down the days to this game and I can’t wait to watch it.

    I’m going to take Thunder to cover the spread tonight.

    CLIPPERS vs LAKERS
    The Clippers lost Chris Paul during the off-season but honestly the offense looks like they won’t miss him at all. But then they could lose their entire roster and it wouldn’t matter as long as Blake Griffin was healthy. I like Beverley tonight – I feel he is highly underrated and he’s going to lead a lot of turnovers for the Clips tonight which is why i’m happy with that point spread.

    The Lakers are really inexperienced and while this may be a team for the future, this is one that the Clippers if they’re on should rock with ease.

    BETS
    THUNDER -12
    CLIPPERS -6

    Post gone into spam….

      Sorted – strange how your comments saying it’s going into spam appear but the others don’t.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      @bigdazza123, you wouldn’t be posting about the Grizzlies again would you? This website doesn’t like their state name for some reason.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Ah, just seen your post. Almost certain it’s the word M-e-m-p-h-i-s.

    • Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Yeah will be. I’ll sort for now but might need to reinstate.

    Can’t see any of the Lakers forwards being able to guard Blake tonight. Lonzo’s assists probably going to be worth a look tonight with Beverly harassing him the entire game.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      I really hope Lonzo fails. Either that or he tells his Dad to stay out of his work. He’ll ruin his potential ‘career’ if he carries on. Lou Williams points should be worth a look. 14.5 @ 5/6 @ Skybet. Again, another player disrespected because of his ‘bench’ status. Easily the best shooter on the Clippers roster with Crawford and Reddick gone.

    • nick 5 years ago

      Was really hoping his first game of the season was going to be up against a top PG that would’ve been free ££ on their overs. I can see him being a decent passer but his shooting is pretty eh. Caruso outplayed him in the summer league.

    • nick 5 years ago

      Teodosic starting now too, his P+A line just went from 15.5 to 18.5.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      The only thing I like about him is his shot. ?

  8. Jordan 5 years ago

    Easy double in the end last night. Tougher card tonight and I’m on two of the highest totals on the alternate. Low stakes as all it takes is one quarter of poor scoring and this one could be over.

    Trail Blazers/Pacers Over 216
    Magic/Nets Over 217.5

    49/50 @ 365 – 2.5 points

      Posted, any chance you can put KO times on these – I don’t know my basketball from my hanging basket.
      Trying to follow the grid a bit and if anyone hasn’t watched it check out that finish in Raiders game. Unreal.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      No worries @mr-fixit, cheers, will do.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Also, the Raiders game, amazing stuff. That’s why the game deserves more hype.
