Today Jan 4th a bunch of games , we ll cover a couple of them .
Los Angeles Lakers – Philadelphia 76ers
Home team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. Also the favorite has been better in most of the recent matches between the Lakers and the 76ers as the favorite is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The Lakers without Odom are just too much for Philadelphia at this point. Odom was suspended for one match after that game due to a flagrant foul against Boston’s Ray Allen. Odom is the Lakers second overall scorer with 14.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. After he blew a couple of spreads , Odom s suspension is honey for all the capers ….
Philadelphia will rely mainly on Andre Iguodala who has been scoring a lot even if the rest of the 76ers have been struggling. He averages 24.3 points in the 76ers last 6 games. The 76ers are also on a long road trip and this might hurt them. They have played 7 out of the last 9 games away from home.

Sacramento – Cleveland
In their previous meeting Kevin Martin scored 32 points while Devin Brown and Damon Jones pitched in 30 in a 93-91 Cavs win. There were 6 point road favorites. If it wasn’t for two 4Q meltdowns vs Phx/Phi/Den, Sac could’ve been 5-2 SU, and 6-1 ATS in their last 7, with their only ATS loss coming vs Boston…and there weren’t that bad until midway through the 3rd quarter. With the starting 5 of the Kings playing so well right now…their bench has been horrid, due to Artest/Martin/Bibby being hurt.
The Cavs have Boobie Gibson and Andy Varejao as their main bench contributors…allowing duds Hughes and Sasha Pavlovic to sit their useless asses down. Bron can’t be guarded by Salmons/Garcia as he outweighs both by 40lbs, so there’s going to be a lot of post ups and dribble drives. Outside of Boobie, the Cavs show no perimeter threat, and the combination of Miller/Moore should be able to contain Z/Gooden/Andy.
TAke the Kings +7.5 @1.95 at Pinnacle
Toronto – Detroit
One of most interesting games of the day . This is the first national televised regular season game for the Raptors since Vince Carter was here.
A few important points :
* home team has won the last 8/10 meetings
* Raps coming home from a long road trip
* Pistons have Boston on saturday (back to back) so it s probable to see the starters having a litlle bit of downtime .
Chris Bosh scored 29 points against NO and Toronto, which lost three in a row in Portland, Seattle and Phoenix before winning two of its last three, rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit. Bosh averaged 24.0 points and 10.6 rebounds during the road trip for the Raptors, who have won six of their last eight at home. Jose Calderon chipped in 17 points against the Hornets and averaged 14.7 during the trip.
It was a brutal scheduling for the Raps who had a 7 game west coast trip during the holidays. They got 3 days off and have a Friday night game against the Pistons, place should be bumping. Hard to bet against the Pistons right now , but Toronto can make a game of it in the 2nd half.
Even though sounds a little bit weird …. but :
