Default NBA 2007-08 Week 1 Thread (10/30 - 11/5)

Not sure how the NBA threads are usually done here, but I figured I'd go ahead and make one for the first week of the season.

Plays for Tuesday 10/30
Golden State -3.5 vs. Utah, risking 1.1u to win 1u

I rate the Warriors as slightly better than the Jazz in a neutral setting at this point in the season. Golden State also had by far the largest home/road differential (18 games!) in the regular season last year. The Jazz don't match up well here, they will be forced to play GS's style of game and they won't be able to keep up with them.

I'm a huge Spurs fan but don't like picking them to cover large spreads, so no play vs. Portland.

LAL/HOU line has been moving strongly, presumably due to the latest Kobe drama. If it keeps moving to +5.5 or +6, it's a good pick for the Lakers at home.

could the Jazz keep up with them in the playoffs a few months ago?

Obviously they did, but one of the biggest disappointments for me was that GS wasn't up 3-0 to open the series. IIRC, they led in the final minute of games 1 and 2, one game by a sizeable margin.

Tuesday, October 30:

San Antonio -13.5
Brandon Roy and Darius Miles will be out for Portland. My number says SA by 22.

Golden State -3.5
This one should be close and GS is good at home. Injuries: Stephen Jackson (GS), Matt Harpring (Utah).

Do you happen to know of a place that has historical quarter lines for the NBA? Want to try something out this year

Also curious on this point. This article would suggest he'll be playing, but this would be a quick play if it turns out he won't be playing.

Any news appreciated.
