While we wait for the NFL Divisional Weekend and try to get our America’s Bookie accounts boosted to make the most out of the 7 remaining football games, Joey Berra is going to throw a Tuesday Teaser out there. I have been money on my teasers, hitting on the large majority of them, but don’t believe me, check out my last two. I nailed my last Tuesday Two Team Teaser as well as my last, now famous, Thursday Three Team Special Teaser.

Tuesday Night action sees eight games on tap in the NBA, but we are going to focus on two of them for this Tuesday Two-Teamer. The first one is a contest between two Western Conference teams that are moving in opposite directions as the Minnesota Timberwolves (12-26, 14-23-1 ATS, 19-19 O/U) host the Oklahoma City Thunder (26-12, 15-23 ATS, 16-22 O/U).
Oklahoma’s record has them sitting pretty in third place behind the Warriors and Spurs who have only 8 losses between them. Although they lost their last game, a 115-110 road loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, the Thunder are 15-4 in their last 19 games and 7-3 in their last 10.
The Timberwolves on the other hand have lost their last 6, and have only put four “W’s” on the board in their last 22 games which puts them above just the Pelicans and Lakers in the West standings. Part of Minnesota’s problem has been their ability to stop their opposition from scoring, allowing over 102 points per game, ranking them 20th in the league.
With their defensive woes, the Timberwolves will have a problem with an OKC Thunder team averaging 108.9 points per game, second to only the Warriors (114.4). The Thunder are the only team in the NBA to have two players in the top 14 in scoring with Kevin Durant third (26.5) and Russell Westbrook sixth (25.5). This is part of the reason why the Thunder are a 10½-point road favorite with the total set at 210.
The second part of our Tuesday Teaser has the Eastern Conference leading Cleveland Cavaliers (26-9, 15-19-1 ATS, 16-19 O/U) traveling to Texas to play the Dallas Mavericks (22-16, 22-15-1 ATS, 16-22 O/U). Basketball odds experts at America’s Bookie have the Cavaliers a 6-point road favorite with the number at 199½.
Cleveland has been playing great defense this year, holding teams to 95.1 points per game, second to only the San Antonio Spurs who allow 89.4 PPG. Dallas has been middle of the road when it comes to points against, giving up the 15th most at 100.7.
LeBron is currently fourth in points per game with 25.8 while the Mavericks don’t have anyone in the top 30, led by Dirk Nowitzki’s 17.7 PPG, good for 34th in the league. The favorite is 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings between these two while the UNDER is 6-2 in the last 8. Worth noting, the Cavaliers are 1-5 ATS the last 6 times they’ve met the Mavs.
