Free NBA Pick: Timberwolves vs. Pacers Over 207 (John Martin)
Minnesota is giving up 108.2 points/game on the road this season. Indiana gives up 102.7 points/game in all games this year. This contest has all the making of a shootout tonight in Indiana given these putrid defensive numbers. The Pacers are 16-5 OVER in home games versus poor foul drawing teams – attempting <=24 free throws/game over the last 2 seasons. Indiana is 17-7 OVER versus up-tempo teams averaging 83 or more shots/game over the last 2 seasons. Both squads are up-tempo teams that like to push the ball. Cash in with the OVER.
Free NBA Pick: Grizzlies vs. Suns Over 227 (Jim Feist)
A long road trip for Memphis and Phoenix shows no mercy on road weary teams. Just ask the short handed Celtics, whom the Suns ran into the ground the last game. Amare Stoudemire and Channing Frye scored 26 points apiece, and the Suns handed what was left of the Celtics their third straight loss, 116-98 on Wednesday night. The Suns shot 50% and are on a 5-0 run over the total. Memphis has a young, athletic team that can run with the Suns, too, on a 4-0 run over the total. They’ve won 3 of 4 despite giving up over 100 points in all four. Look for an offensive show, play the Grizzlies/Suns Over the total.
