Truths to be self evident

The Pistons aren’t very good and the owner is stressing patience to the fan base. The Brooklyn Nets are one of the best perceived teams in the NBA while the Lakers will always be heavily bet by the public creating value.

The Jazz play great defense while San Antonio are keeping games close. The Timberwolves will continue to struggle without their best player Karl Anthony Townes. The Clippers will be heavily bet by the public creating value while the Suns are playing the best defense in the NBA.

The Dallas Mavericks have a leading MVP candidate while the Bulls are clearly rebuilding under first year head coach Billy Donovan and missing key rotational players.

Steph Curry will always be great yet the Warriors haven’t been impressive in the early going while Dame and Portland are finding ways to win.

The Computer

As stated previously, we value the computer’s opinion. The computer is picking underdogs Washington, Memphis, and Phoenix to cover with the Suns winning outright against Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers.

Yesterday, the computer was 3-3 against the spread and 3-3 on over/unders while the sharps went 4-1.
