Utah @ Indiana -9

Intro: Indiana has had a nice turn around this season despite making the playoffs last season they did so as the only sub .500 team.

System: The Neural Network gives a 3 point edge to Indiana.

Prediction: After losing by 11 last night I’m going to give another unit to Utah.

Cleveland @ Miami -13.5

Intro: Well these two had the big matchups last year. When James left darted out Cleveland he left them with next to nothing luckily for them they got Kyrie Irving who as a rookie has brought some hope back he currently leads the team in points, assists and field goal percentage. Well Cleveland has some hope for the future they are still a long ways away on the other hand you have Miami who currently has the second best win percentage in the East only bested by Chicago.

System: Miami is given a 23 point edge but given the -13.5 spread this is wont be a play.

Prediction: I expect Miami to win and wouldn’t be shocked if they covered.

Charlotte @ Boston -14

Intro: Boston has really turned it around winning 4 in a row they are now on the right side of .500. Charlotte is in the bottom of the league and has lost 11 games in a row. On the road though they are a little better against the number 5-9.

System: Another huge predictive margin this game huge 66 points.

Prediction: Looks like I’m very far away I hope next week when I rerun the network that this will get solved. Just like the Miami game straight up I expect Boston to win but this one I expect Charlotte to cover.

Sacramento @ Minnesota -6.5

Intro: Minnesota right now in the middle of the pack with a 12-12 record and are winners of their last two games. The host the Kings who are on a 3 game winning streak behind their three talented youngsters DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evens and Jimmer Fredette. While most of the work is on the first two who currently lead the team in almost every statistical category Jimmer gives the Kings an outside presence that cannot be ignored and makes his shots from the FT line at a solid clip 88%.

System: Minnesota with a deeper bench and a more effective shooting percentage and a positive team rating (1.8 opposed to -11) have a large predicted margin.

Prediction: The extra half a point tops my limit for the game. I’d still expect Minnesota to cover but is little more than I want to lay.

Phoenix @ Milwaukee -7.5

Intro: Phoenix takes a two game winning streak to Milwaukee after beating Atlanta by 9 last night the Suns are 7.5 underdogs tonight. They do so being pretty cold ats only covering 3 of their last 9. The Bucks led by their leading scoring point guard Brandon Jennings come into tonight’s action on a two game losing and cover streak.

System: Milwaukee has only a point and a half edge according to the system. Of course this is 6 points of predicted value so check out the prediction to see what I think in terms of plays.

Prediction: I’m going to give this game a two unit play. Phoenix has been playing better as of late has a deeper bench, and though its close a more effective shooting percentage.

Oklahoma City -2 @ Golden State

Intro: The Thunder went into Portland last night and won and are now 10-4 on the road straight up and 8-6 against the spread when they travel away from Oklahoma City. The Warriors are aren’t even .500 at home straight up or against the spread and yet Okc is only laying two points?

System: Interestingly the system grades this out as about right and even a slight edge against the number to Golden State as the Thunder only have a predicted edge of under half a point.

Prediction: I think we see the Thunder win and cover the 2 point spread but this isn’t a play.
