Sacramento at UTAH (230')

By Gus Augustine, Featured Handicapper

Long-term success: My $10 bettors have made $12,470 since Dec. 7.

And that's after bouncing back with a 40 Dime Winner last night on the Cincinnati Reds, a 6-5 winner over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Today I have something just as strong from the American League East.

The Red Sox and Orioles are both in first place so this should make for an interesting game.

Second straight 40 Dime MLB Winner.

After hitting an NBA total here last night, with the Grizzlies-Knicks going Over, I'm back with another.

The Sacramento Kings' defense is atrocious, the Utah Jazz are one of the deadliest shooting teams in the league and the two meet for what might end up being a destruction in Salt Lake City. Problem with the side is, you don't know when Quin Snyder is going to rest his players and if the backdoor will be left wide open.

But the over is there for the taking.

And I'll continue to look at, and push, the Kings-over narrative as long as they continue to let bad teams run all over them. Because if they're letting teams like the Detroit Pistons come into Sacramento put up 113 points, imagine what they're going to let Utah do tonight on its own court.

The Jazz have had a night off to digest their win over Portland, and will resume its offensive proficiency with a 3-point barrage against one of the most inefficient defenses in the league.

It wouldn't surprise me to see the Jazz conserve energy by playing a bit lax on defense - as long as they have the Kings down by double digits - leaving Sacramento to do enough to keep pace with Utah’s hot shooting. Don't be surprised if we see a little De’Aaron Fox-Donovan Mitchell back-and-forth show at some point.

This one is soaring tonight.

3* OVER Kings-Jazz

Philadelphia (-11') at OKLAHOMA CITY

By Trace Adams, Featured Handicapper

Not sure how in the world the Boston Celtics were able to cover that game, but when you get a gift like that you just say "thank you" and move on to the next day.

That makes 3 of the past 4 days on the plus side and I am getting after it early here on Saturday in MLB.

A.L. East Rivalry Lock

N.Y. Yankees-Tampa Bay - 1:10 PM ET

TWICE AS BIG as Friday's 500♦ Winner
Celtics over the Timberwolves

TWICE AS BIG as Thursday's 500♦ Winner
Twins (RL +100) over M's - 10-2

Let's get after it for this Saturday as I keep the winning momentum in my corner.

Yes Philadelphia just played last night - and lost - in New Orleans and yes, Philly will likely sit Joel Embiid for rest in this quick turnaround game in Oklahoma City, but I don't think it will make a sh%ts worth of difference with the 76ers trying to keep pace with the Brooklyn Nets for the #1 spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Sixers road loss at the Pelicans means Philly missed a chance to tie the Nets for the best record in the Eastern Conference. 

They get set to face a Thunder team that probably should be renamed the Whimper, as OKC has lost 4 in a row and 8 of their last 9 both straight up and against the spread.

Oklahoma City is not just a bad team, but they are a team that has been dealing with a multitude of injuries that has left them ripe for the pickings by any and all in the Association this season. The Thunder's last loss coming by 27 points to the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night at home!!!!

OKC stands at 15-21 against the spread this season when getting +5 points or more for the year and that happens to be the scenario they find themselves in again tonight.

This will be the first meeting between the teams this season and with the 76ers having a stop in Dallas next before returning home to deal with the aforementioned Nets in Philadelphia, as well as the Clippers directly after, I would say this is a game that the Sixers simply must dominate.

Lay it with Philadelphia.


Detroit at PORTLAND (223')

Needed extra-innings last night, but got the job done! Another 75 Dime Winner, this time in MLB on the Reds holding off the Diamondbacks.

That makes 17 of the last 22 days on the plus side and I am set to add to the winning tonight with this blowout NBA winner.

I plan on taking this sucker straight to the bank, come along with me.

Pistons-Blazers on Saturday night in the Rose City and the points will add up to an Over.

Both teams played their Thursday night games Under the total - Detroit holding Under in Sacramento and Portland holding under in Utah - but I like them to play a game tonight that makes its way Over the posted total much the way these teams did on March 31st in the Motor City.

The Pistons had played 3 straight Overs prior to their Thursday night Under and they enter this game on a 7-3 Over run in their last 10 games which includes that March 31st meeting against the Trail Blazers.

Portland comes into this home date with Overs played in 5 of their last 8 games, as this is a Blazers team that scores it at 115 points per game for the year, while also allowing 115.3 points per game.

6 of the last 10 in this series have landed Over and this one will as well.
