Television: Local Networks

Orlando Magic: Orlando (2-0 straight-up and against the spread) has had a good start to the post-Dwight Howard era with home wins and covers over Denver (102-89) and Phoenix (115-94). Glen Davis (25.5 points per game) and J.J. Redick (22.5 PPG) have come up huge so far, but this first road game will be played without starters Jameer Nelson (groin) and Hedo Turkoglu (hand).

Chicago Bulls: Chicago (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) is also learning how to play without a superstar as former NBA MVP Derrick Rose is recovering from his knee injury. The Bulls have four starters averaging between 13.3-14.7 PPG, but Rose’s replacement Kirk Hinrich (4.7 PPG, 26.3 percent shooting) is struggling so far.


Toronto Raptors at Oklahoma City Thunder
NBA Betting Preview
Date:
11/6/2012 at 8:00 p.m. (ET) Opening Lines: Oklahoma City -10, O/U 199

Television: NBA-TV

Toronto Raptors: The Raptors (1-2 SU and ATS) have an explosive backcourt with Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, who combined for 44 points in Sunday’s 105-86 home win over Minnesota. Their only road game was a 107-100 loss at Brooklyn as 5 ½-point underdogs last Saturday.

Oklahoma City Thunder: The Thunder (1-2 SU, 1-1-1 ATS) should be playing angry after losing 104-95 as 9-point home favorites last Sunday versus Atlanta. New addition Kevin Martin (20.7 PPG) has replaced James Harden’s scoring after the unpopular trade with Houston, but the team is still trying to find its new identity. The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games against Toronto.


Detroit Pistons at Denver Nuggets
NBA Betting Preview
Date:
11/6/2012 at 9:00 p.m. (ET)
Opening Lines: Denver -10, O/U 198
(click for latest NBA odds)
Television: Local Networks

Detroit Pistons: Both teams are 0-3 SU and 1-2 ATS this season. The Pistons have assembled some interesting young pieces, but a tough schedule along with the horrendous shooting of guard Rodney Stuckey (1-of-23) has hurt the cause. Stuckey is dealing with headaches but is listed as probable on the NBA injury report.

Denver Nuggets: The Nuggets are playing their home opener after losses at Philly (84-75), Orlando (102-89) and Miami (119-116). The Heat game last Saturday was a cover as 8 ½-point ‘dogs. Denver has plenty of talent beginning with Danilo Gallinari, Ty Lawson and the newly acquired Andre Iguodala. The "over" is 6-0 in the last six meetings between the Nuggets and Pistons.
