Free NBA Picks for October 24, 2017 by Professor MJ
FREE NBA PICKS
BY PROFESSOR MJ
Hello basketball fans, how are you doing? Today’s point spreads in the NBA are pretty much in line with my own projected lines, so we only have one small play. I cannot wait to have strong profitable bets again, but you can’t force these things (if it’s not there, it’s not there!). We need to stay patient.
PICK: Indiana Pacers +11 at Minnesota Timberwolves (rated 2 stars)
The Pacers are benefiting from two days of rest, while the T-Wolves only had one (and they had to travel too). Minnesota is coming off a dramatic win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road, as Andrew Wiggins’ buzzer-beater sealed the victory. Playing at home against a mediocre Pacers team doesn’t sound as exciting at all, so I expect a letdown from Minnesota, especially in the first half.
Indiana’s starting center, Myles Turner, will miss his third straight game. Domantas Sabonis has been getting more playing time in his absence; he racked up 18 points in Indiana’s 4-point loss at Miami.
The Pacers have won the last 3 meetings in Minnesota! Over the past 9 matchups overall, Indiana is 6-3 against the Timberwolves.
The line has not moved yet, despite 62% of the wagers going on Minnesota.
Have a good Tuesday!
