MLB & NBA Lines

Quite a few good lines for Friday’s action. Here are my picks:


  • Knicks @ Nets.Knicks are a walking hospital ward right now, but this line is crazy. Knicks cover this easy. I’m taking the Knicks +9.
  • Nuggets @ Hornets.This game has  a lot of side stories and will be fun to watch. The Hornets have been decimated by injuries, and Friday night could be the last time basketball is played on OK City in quite some time. After Friday, the Hornets’ final three games are on the road and their playoff future is still uncertain. The Nuggets on the otherhand are ROLLIN’. Probably the hottest team in the league right now. They are firing on all cylinders, going 7-0 in April. Mello is playing liek a man possessed. AI is AI (to quote his Mom). The crowd will be rockin’ for this game and I’d love to be there in person. The sentimental pick is to take the Hornets in this one. However, the Nuggets are just too good and the Hornets’ injuries will hurt them. I like the Nuggets, and I like hem more getting points. I’m taking the Nuggets +1.5.
  • Spurs @ Twolves.As the game against the Kings earlier this week shows, I never learn. THE SPURS SELDOM COVER. It is almost automatic.  However, they are playing a Twolves team that will be without KG. In their last game without KG, they lost by almost 20 points at home to a Mavs team without Dirk and Stack. Logic tells me to take the Twolves at home, but I’m illogical and the Twolves are atrocious without KG. I don’t care that they are at home. I’m going against better judgment and taking the Spurs -10.5. (NOTE: If these SOB’s don’t cover, I’m never betting on them again and I will start a full-time blog to haze them.)
  • Bobcats @ Bulls. Bulls are rollin’ right now. I like them a lot at home. I’m taking the Bulls -9.5.


  • Reds @ Cubs.Battle of pitchers in this one as Harang goes against Zambrano. Zambrano is awesome and  pitched well his last time out. However, his team’s offense has been terrible and they have been off a few days due to the lovely weather in Chitown. Tomorrow is supposed the be bad as well. I think Harang can match him. I just like the Reds offense much better right now. Like the line, too. I’m taking the Reds +135.
  • Giants @ Pirates. Barry’s homecoming. The Duke of Pittsburgh toes the rubber for the Bucks. Russ Ortiz for the Giants. I’m a HUGE fan of the Duke. However, his offense is not playing that well right now. The Giants are due for a win, and Bonds his due to breakout of his slump. Ortiz is terrible, but his lifetime stats against the Bucks (7-1 with a 2.93 ERA in 12 starts) are great. I like the line. I’m taking the Giants +140.
  • Nats @ Mets.Nats look to capitalize on their impressive victory Thursday night over the Braves & Senior Smoltz. They send their ace, John Patterson, to the hill against the impressive Mets youngster Mike Pelfrey. Pelfrey was sharp during the Spring and makes his season debut. Patterson has been terrible to start the year. He is due for a good outing. The Nats won’t score many runs, but I like their chances against a guy who was in the minors last year. Patterson can match him. I’m taking thr Nats +170. 
  • Marlins @ Braves.This may be my favorite baseball line of the night. The D-Train makes its next stop in Atalanta against Redman and the Braves. Willis’ career stats in April are ridiculous. I think he mows in this one. The line is flawed, too. I’m taking the Marlins -105.
  • White Sox @ Indians.Not sure if this game will be “Home” in Milwaukee, or in Cleveland. It doesn’t matter. Javy Vazquez looked great last time out. I’m not a fan of Carmona. I like this line. I’m taking the Sox -108.
  • Rays @ Twins.This game has all the makings of a repeat performance of the Mariners-Sox game from Wednesday night. Could be a great pitchers duel and Kazmir squares off against Johan. As expected, the Rays are HUGE underdogs in this one (+220). Tough game to call. If Kazmir is on, he can dominate the Twins line-up. Johan, of course, will be Johan and shutdown the Rays. I think the Twins win, but the line is too bad. However, the over is 7.5. That is way too many runs for this game. I’m taking the UNDER @ 7.5.

That’s it for me. Quite a few games. Hopefully you can get some use out of the picks.

 Good luck.
