It’s time to start a new week and the Cornfather is ready to punch in. He never rests on his laurels. We have a small NBA card tonight with some tricky match ups, but the Cornfather has some leans. Let’s Eat.
Lunch Money Plays
Chicago +7 vs Boston – You really need to grit your teeth to take this one. Chicago obviously stinks, but they have won two in a row and are playing functional basketball. The Celtics will win, but on a back-to-back the Cornfather sees this as a letdown game. 7 is a lot at home.
New Orleans +11.5 @ Houston – The Rockets look unstoppable right now, but the Cornfather likes the way the Pelicans match up. Boogie and Davis will have no trouble scoring and the Cornfather doesn’t see the Rockets blowing them out.
Miami -1 @ Memphis – The Grizzlies dropped a heartbreaker to Oklahoma City in their last game and the Cornfather loves betting against bad teams that just lost a close one. Those are soul crushers and Miami will pounce.
Oklahoma City -6.5 vs Charlotte – The Cornfather hasn’t been on the right side of the Thunder all year, but they have been tough to beat at home and are playing much better basketball. The Hornets are complete garbage on the road and they even haven’t been able to win at home recently.
