Play on: Philadelphia+ over Atlanta

Philly surprised the public domain last night with a SU win over Minnesota. The Sixers have now won back-to-back games vs. Minny.  Atlanta continued on their MASSIVE winning streak handling Portland 105-99.  Both teams do not play again until Monday, getting their Super Bowl party hats for Sunday.  Atlanta 23-3 SU at home, while the Sixers 5-19 in road outings. No matter Philadelphia is playing in a back-to-back situation where they are 9-4-1 ATS with one day of rest. The Hawks have the obvious talent and statistical edges needed to win this SU, but we watched their game last night and noticed a change in how they were attacking on offense. So, look for the Hawks to win, but the Sixers grab the CASH.

Houston Rockets vs. Detroit Pistons

Everyone wants to take this one. The Pistons have been brought down back to Earth as they move forward without Brandon Jennings. Josh Smith left town and everything changed for this young team. Now Josh Smith returns on a stacked roster of scorers who can do a lot of damage on any given night. Houston has improved enough on their defense this year to put the fear in the eyes of upcoming teams who think they can simply trade baskets like it used to with the Rockets of the past 3 season. Houston covers a short line but wager it at a very low risk. 

THERE IS SOMETHING HUGE GOING ON TONIGHT! 

Forget about the Superbowl. This is SportsAtari's NBA BOWL and my largest personal bet this season! Join me tonight and let's stack up more money than you ever thought you could grab the day before the Superbowl.

I'm recommending a play on the Houston Rockets minus the points.  Houston did play last night, but although they won by six, they should have won by more and I believe at least a couple of players will be motivated to perform at a high level in this one.  James Harden is one of those players after making just 4-of-21 FGA, including just 2-of-7 from behind the arc. Trevor Ariza and Patrick Beverly also struggled with their shots, combining to make just 5-of-17 FGA, including 2-of-10 from area code 3.  It was an ugly second half on the offensive end, yet they still managed the victory.  Tonight, they'll lace them up against a Pistons' team that made us quite a bit of money for nearly a month.  After releasing Josh Smith, Detroit went 12-3 over their next 15 games, including 11-4 ATS.  But horrible news arrived with the injury to Brandon Jennings, who was recently lost for the season.  Jennings was injured in the third quarter of a game in Milwaukee one week ago tonight, and including that game, the Pistons have now dropped four straight games.  Detroit is truly hamstrung at this point and are 0-5 ATS at home against teams winning more than 60% of their road games on the season.  Meanwhile, Houston is on an 11-1 ATS run against teams with a losing record and they're on a 6-2 ATS run when playing in the second of back-to-back nights.  I'm recommending a play on the Houston Rockets minus the points on Saturday.  Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.

01/31 07:35 PM  NBA   (509) PHILADELPHIA 76ERS VS (510) ATLANTA HAWKS
Take: UNDER THE TOTAL.
Reason: Your free play for Saturday, January 31, 2015 comes in the NBA as 76ers and the Hawks meet in Atlanta. Philadelphia had to play last night, so they won't want to get into a running game. This Philadelphia team is 30th in points scored, 28th in assists and on a 20-6 run under the total. The under is 34-16-2 in the 76ers last 52 road games. They face an Atlanta team that also had to play last night. The Hawks have been sensational on defense all season, tops in the NBA in points allowed. Atlanta is 5-1 under the total against the Atlantic division and this shapes up as a game with more defense than offense. Play the 76ers/Hawks under the total.
