Philadelphia at BOSTON (210')
By Chris Jordan, Featured Handicapper
I've won 28 of the last 47 days. I've also lost four straight days.
But even a loss on the Dodgers Run Line can't ruin my mode.
Not when the NBA is getting started tonight. Not knowing that in a sport I have limited plays every season - due to NFL, College Football and College Basketball - I've made my players a fortune.
As in, $5,080 the last two seasons. That, you may be surprised to know, is a lot, considering the fact I've given out an average of 46 plays the last two seasons.
I'm determined to open the betting week on a winning note, as I deliver a bankroll builder on the Oklahoma City-Golden State game.
200♦ NBA Winner # 5 in a Row
Look, my players will continue to win, because this is what I do this time of the year, week after week, month after month, year after year - not just one game.
- Since Nov. 12, 2016, my $1 players are up $51,467 with all sports.
- Since 2006, with plays rated 1000♦ or higher, my $1 bettors have made $168,830 with all sports.
- Since 2015, my $1 players have made $16,820 in college football.
- Since the 2015 season, my $1 players are up $18,800 in NFL.
Forget about the $51 grand I've made you the past year and a half. Forget about the winning in college football the last few seasons.
The here and now. This week. Tonight. Let's make some money!
This is a great time to buy a long-term package, as I continue the momentum on the baseball diamond with the best blowout on the card. By jumping on board long-term, you will get all of my NFL, College Football and MLB action. When basketball starts, if the package is long enough, you'll get that too.

While my premium play in the NBA is the late game, my free play is on the early game, as I love the Over in the Philadelphia 76ers-Boston Celtics contest.
I won't get long-winded on you, and try to break down a ton of stats and useless trends - they're irrelevant. What matters most in this game is that right off the bat, defense is limited with a lot of teams, until real-time, regular-season chemistry kicks in.
So when you see a number like this, as high as 210, it's probably because that total will soar. Last year, 18 of the first 34 games went Over, with a couple of pushes, while 12 of 22 with a total of 210+ went Over, and a couple of pushes right there.
With these rivals tonight, you're going to see the 76ers trying to establish themselves as an Eastern Conference contender, while the Celtics will be looking to establish themselves as the favorite to win the East.
Shootout in Boston, as this one soars.
5* OVER 76ers-Celtics

I opened up MLB's final four with a win on the total in the National League Championship Series, as I nailed the Over in Game 1 between the Brewers and Dodgers.
Last night I fell short with the total in Game 3, as the series resumed in Los Angeles. Tonight, with two MLB plays and two NBA plays, I'm sticking with the total in this series, as it's the best play on the card.
Grab this easy winner on the Over/Under in baseball.

Let's bounce back from last night's loss
+ + + + + + + + + +
Okay Boston, you're allowed to emerge now that the King is in Los Angeles. The Celtics will be looking to flex their muscles and immediately establish themselves as the team to beat in the Eastern Conference now that LeBron James is donning purple and gold and playing in the Western Conference.
Fact is, Boston, Philadelphia and Toronto are the top candidates to take over as the beast of the East. But it's the Celtics who had a Game 7 at home last season, but blew their chances when they lost to James and Cleveland.
Boston is healthy, though, with Gordon Hayward back and a Kyrie Irving healthy for the season, so there is no better time to make a statement than on opening night, against a fellow contender.
Add in Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford, and this will be a dangerous quintet tonight. Off the bench, there's also Marcus Smart. The chemistry with this roster is very strong.
And lest we forget, the Celtics were one of the league's top defensive teams last season and will be once again under defensive-minded coach Brad Stevens.
Lay the points tonight.
Oklahoma City at GOLDEN STATE (-13)

Hardwood season starts tonight, and it starts with a winner from Beantown.
Raise The Bar 1500♦ NBA Opening Night Dead Mortal Lock on line.
The Sixers and the Celtics for Tuesday night.
PS - Don't forget my Pay-After-You-Win release returns this weekend.
Remember, the Pay-After play is always on a SEPARATE extension.
Must win, or you will NOT be charged.
Tuesday comp play is Golden State at home over Oklahoma City.
Hard to build a convincing case for the Thunder with Russell Westbrook out, and Steven Adams listed as questionable for the season opener.
Golden State did drop the first 2 series meetings to OKC last year, but overall the Dubs stand at 9-2 both straight up and against the spread the last 11 times the teams have faced one another.
The Warriors will be raising their latest Championship banner, and there is no reason to expect the shorthanded Thunder to rain on the Golden State parade tonight.
Let's lay the wood with the Dubs by 18 points or so tonight.
3* GOLDEN STATE
