On Thursday the NBA Blowout system is on Utah. Game 512 at 9:05 eastern. Utah has won and covered 11 straight here at home vs Milwaukee. The Bucks are 0-11 straight up and 1-10 to the spread off a win. For our Power system we note that road dogs of 5 or more with 1 day of rest that scored 90 or more in a road dog win and cover have not won or covered going as far back as 1995 vs an opponent like Utah that covered the spread as a home favorite of 4 or less while scoring 90 or less. These road teams get blown out on a regular basis in this system and Milwaukee is 1-6 straight up and ats in non conference games, have lost 15 of 20 vs losing teams and are 3-9 ats after allowing 85 or less points. We cant back the Bucks here, not with all the JAZZ Above. Lay it with Utah.

The Thursday night dog with bite is on Memphis. Game 513 at 9:05 eastern. The Grizzlies already spanked the Suns by 20 in early December and match up well with them. Tonight they catch the Suns off one of their most uplifting upset wins of the season. Last out Phoenix went into To LA and Crushed the Clippers as an 8 point dog by 19 points. Unfortunately what happens many times after such a big win is the bounce afterward. Phoenix may be flat for this one and we have a 92% power system that plays against them here. We want to play on non divisional road dogs with rest if they are getting 5 or more points and failed to cover the spread a a home favorite in their last game, vs a home team like Phoenix that covered the spread by 21 or more points on the road in their last game. Looking at the Suns we note that they are 1-7 ats off a road cover by 21 or more points. Make it Memphis plus the points here tonight.
