Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
-5½-108 at 5DIMES
1 Unit on Houston Rockets -5.5
Minnesota will have the fresher legs and the home court, but I think it does them no good tonight against a much better Houston team. The Wolves are 1-10 this season and they have lost 5 straight games by 10 or more points. Plus, this matchup has been all Houston. Over the last 2 seasons, Houston is 7-0 SU & 5-0-2 ATS versus Minnesota, winning these games by 14 points on average. Can’t see Minnesota’s best player, Al Jefferson, being at the top of his game either after missing two contests to deal with the death of his grandmother.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies
199 ov-101 at 5DIMES
|Jack’s Free Pick Wednesday: Clippers/Grizzlies OVER 199
Two poor defensive teams meet up tonight in Memphis, and they should have no problem combining to score more than 200 points Wednesday. The Clippers allow 100.3 points/game this season, and on the road they are scoring 102.3 points/game. Memphis allows 108.7 points/game overall this year, and they are scoring 99.6 points/game overall. The last 3 meetings in this series have gone OVER the number with combined scores of 223, 213, and 231 points, respectively. The value here is clearly with the OVER tonight. The Clippers are 12-3 OVER when playing 8 or more games in 14 days over the last 2 seasons. The OVER is 7-0 in Clippers last 7 games as a road underdog of 5.0-10.5. The OVER is 28-11-1 in Grizzlies last 40 games as a home favorite. Take the OVER.
