Another NBA win keeps our record perfect at 3-0 this week
Indianapolis Colts +3 (1 unit)
Thus far we are 3-1 on our Thursday Night Football picks.
I think points will be hard to come by. These two teams rank 4th and 6th in overall defense and 30th and 32nd in points scored.
Give us the points in a low scoring tight game.
Over 218.5 Milwaukee/Atlanta (1 unit)
This is a 12pm est start time. For the first time the NBA is playing in the Middle East. Its a big deal for the business and growth of the league.
I expect both teams to put on a show. Watching the Bucks first pre-season game, even without Giannis and Middleton, they are an offensive threat and will look to push the pace often. Based on reports coming out of Atlanta's training camp, the Hawks will also look to do the same this season.
Minnesota -7.5 (.5 units)
The Timberwolves look dangerous on the offensive end. They want to play a high pace game. The Lakers must be tired from last nights high scoring affair against the Suns. Its not a good spot for them based on the style of play the Timberwolves will want to carry out. The Lakers are playing their 3rd game in 4 nights on a back to back. Terrible situation for them.
