Wager Alarm NBA Best Bets - March 5
Adam Ronis brings you his best bets for today's slate of games
We got a bad beat yesterday with the Utah Jazz. They were comfortably ahead by 20 minutes with six minutes left in the game. The Knicks ended the game on a 10-2 run and scored with .7 seconds left to make the game a push. Fortunately, the Pelicans covered to salvage the night.
We have four games tonight, highlighted by the return of Stephen Curry and the Rockets-Clippers. The Raptors injury news is key as Fred VanVleet, Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol are questionable.
Over 225 points - Toronto Raptors at Golden State Warriors, 10:30 p.m. ET
Steph Curry makes his return to the court at home and in a rematch of last season's NBA finals. The Warriors have been playing better lately and are coming off a double-digit road win in Denver. The Warriors have scored 115, 110 and 116 points the last three games. Curry will give a boost to the offense and the Raptors have been playing high scoring games lately. The over is 10-3 in the last 13 road games for the Raptors, who rank second in defensive efficiency but aren't the same without Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol, who are both questionable. Without those two in the last two games, the total points were 251 and 237 points.
