    Had 4 different games as my lock throughout the day. Those 4 games had me go 3-1. The one I end up with my lock is a loss. 16-7 going into today.

    Mil@Min – Milwaukee is favored by 9, I have Milwaukee by 5.5. Milwaukee does a slight scheduling advantage of the day though with Minnesota playing a back to back in their third straight home game while Milwaukee is playing the front end of a back to back in their 2nd straight road game traveling one hour west having that two day rest. This is enough to make me take Milwaukee to cover. The scheduling factors are also more conducive to a blowout (54%) and there’s no way I would think Minnesota can win a blowout here. Feels like I’m picking on Minnesota, but I’ll be on Milwaukee to cover and take Milwaukee to cover 14.5. No DFS here.

    Cle@Cha – Charlotte’s favored by 3.5 and I have Charlotte by 0.5. Cleveland does have a scheduling edge here where Charlotte is playing a back to back in their third straight home game and Cleveland is playing the front end of a B2B in their first road game also having two days rest. I’m liking Cleveland to cover and I’ll be on that moneyline for +133. Charlotte continues to get destroyed on 3s, Assists, and Steals. Love scores over 60% of his points behind the arc and Garland isn’t much behind him and has that assist potential.

    Bkn@Phi – Philly’s favored by 6.5 and I have them by 8. Add in the scheduling edge Philly has where they travel 1 hour east for their first home game while Brooklyn plays a back to back on the road in their second straight home game and travel one hour east. Philly’s my top 3 favorite and almost was my lock to cover. Philly gives up 2pt FG and FTs, this helps Aldridge with 75% of his points coming from two and the charity stripe. Meanwhile, Brooklyn gives up offensive rebounds and 3s. Yep, Embiid.

    SAS@Tor – San Antonio is favored by 2.5 and that’s where I got them too. San Antonio does have the scheduling edge with Toronto playing a back to back in their second straight home game while San Antonio is playing their 5+ consecutive road game. I’m on San Antonio covering. San Antonio gives up 3s, boards, and a massive amount of blocks. That sets up nice for Chris Boucher. Toronto gets killed from 3, offensive rebounds and blocks. Poeltl and Derrick White should be primed for good games here.

    LAC@Det – Clippers are favored by 9.5 and I got the Clippers by 1. Add in Detroit having the second largest scheduling edge of the night with playing their first home game traveling 3 hours east and LAC playing a back to back on the road in their second straight home game and Detroit to cover is my lock of the night. If I had any balls, I would have the Detroit moneyline as my lock of the night at +350, but I can’t get there. I will tell you I will have some heavy bets on the upset here. Clippers get hit on 2pt FG, FT, and Offensive rebounds. Jerami Grant, Jerami Grant, and Jerami Grant. Detroit defends everything well but gives up a number of blocks. That doesn’t help Zubac as much as I thought it would. Clippers will be a complete fade.

    Orl@Chi – Chicago’s favored by 9.5 and I have them by 8. Chicago has a scheduling edge with playing their first home game while Orlando travels one hour west to play their first road game. Gun to my head and I’ll take Chicago to cover that big spread. Chicago’s giving up FT and steals which should help WCJ. Orlando gets destroyed on FG, defensive boards, assists, and blocks. Vuc will be a popular pick for good reason. However, the blowout potential here will have me wary.

    NY@NO – NO is favored by 2.5 and I have NY by 1. However, New Orleans has the edge with playing their 2nd straight home game and NY travels 1 hour west for their first road game. This is enough to make me not like this game at all, but gun to my head, I’m still on NY. NO gives up 3s, FT, and Assists, and Randle should lead NY in all three. NO gives up FT and defensive boards. Should help both Zion and Ingram, but their defense shuts down everything else these two do well, so I’m fading NO.

    Ind@Hou – Indy’s favored by 5 and I have them by only 1. Houston also has an edge with traveling east to play their first home game while Indy is playing a B2B on the road traveling an hour west to play their first road game. If that spread wasn’t so big for Detroit, Houston would be my lock and I would have enough guts to call for an outright win for +170. Indiana gives up FT, OReb, and blocks. I’ll have a lot of Tate and Wall here. Houston gets killed on boards and steals, both favoring Sabonis.

    GS@OKC – GS is favored by 10.5 and I have them by 5. However, GS has the biggest edge of the day with OKC playing a B2B traveling one hour east for their first home game while GS travels two hours east for their first road game on the front end of a back to back. I’m on GS to cover. OKC gives up points, boards, assists, and steals. It’s a Curry and Dray day. GS still gets destroyed on the offensive boards and Moses Brown has proven to be one of the best at that.

    Dal@Mem – Dallas is favored by 2 and I have Dallas by 2.5. However, Memphis does have an extremely slight scheduling edge with their third straight home game and Dallas is playing their first on the road. This is a gun to my head one, but I’m leaning Dallas here. Dallas gets killed on threes, favoring Dillon Brooks and Grayson Allen, and Memphis gives up Bleals, making Josh Richardson a play.

    Mia@Den – Denver’s favored by 4.5 and I have them by 2. Denver travels one hour east to play their first home game while Miami plays a B2B on the road in their 3rd straight road game. Denver has the edge here and I’ll roll with it. Denver to cover. Denver gives up free throws and little else while Miami gets destroyed on offensive boards and 3s, putting me on MPJ.

    Was@Sac – Washington’s favored by 1.5 and I have them by 2.5, but again Sacramento has a scheduling edge, traveling 2 hours west to play the front end of a back to back at home while Washington is playing their 5+ consecutive road game traveling 2 hours west. Almost all negatives. I’m still liking Washington here, but not as much as I want to. Sacramento gives up scoring, especially from the FT line and Beal’s helped here the most, though he’ll be so popular and Sacramento doesn’t give much up on the peripherals that he’ll be a fade for me. Meanwhile, Washington gives up points, boards, and steals, and if Whiteside doesn’t start, don’t be shocked if Harrison Barnes has one of those “where the hell did that come from” 40 burgers.

    So, Detroit’s my lock. Houston, Philly, and Milwaukee are all lock worthy. Clevleland, GS, San Antonio, and Denver are next. NY, Was, Dal, and Chi are gun to my head choices. Love the upset potential with the massive moneyline for Detroit and will have some of Cleveland and Houston to boot.

    Good luck all!

    Just so you know, Milwaukee was still in Orlando as of late yesterday afternoon. Even practiced there yesterday, so they travelled more than one hour last night if that does anything to your metrics.

    Rozier back should hurt Wanamaker the most

    On 4/11
    Char had basically same players as will have today
    Wanamaker played 28 min
    Martin only 18??
    Rotation could change but that’s what it was three days ago

    I’ll look when I get home. I thought PJ Washington was still playing on 4/11
