NBA PICKS: 12/10/07

After a disappointing 5-5 night last Friday night, we took the weekend off to re-group (and focus on NFL). Our season record stands at 59-69-2. Here is what we like tonight:

Rockets @ 76ers +6:  Rockets got SMOKED last night by a battered Raptors team. They play back-to-back nights tonight against a high energy Sixers team that is fresh off of back-to-back beatdwon of the the Knicks. Not that that is an impressive feat, but they did look good. We think the Rockets right their ship and win tonight, but we think the Sixers keep it with 6. Take the Sixers +6.

Hawks @ Magic -9.5: The Hawks have been terrible ATS on the road. However, they have been good recently in Orlando. We don’t think it matters tonight. The Magic are rested. We think they roll. Take the Magic -9.5.

Mavs -8.5 @ Knicks: This is a lot of points to give a home team. Not when that team is the Knicks. Eventhough the Mavs are the softest team in the NBA, we think they cover. Take the Mavs -8.5.

Heat @ Suns -11.5; OVER/UNDER 216.5: The Heat have actually been surprisingly decent ATS in back-to-back games (4-2). That said, they are still not a good team. The last time they were in Phoenix, they lost by 28. It won’t be that bad tonight, but it will still be a beatdown. Take the Suns -11.5. We also love the OVER 216.5.

Good luck.

NBA PICKS: 11/28/07

Another 1-2 night!! I think we should change our name to 1-2 we hit it so much. Our season record is 40-44-1. It is a joke. We know. We will rebound. Here are picks tonight:

Cavs @ Pistons -8.5: This is a Vegas trap game. With the way the Cavs have been playing, this spread should be no where near this high. If anything, the Pistons should be the dog. That said, we are taking the Pistons. Take the Pistons -8.5.

Magic -8.5 @ Sonics: Magic are rested. They will roll. Take the Magic -8.5.

Jazz @ Sixers +6.5: The Jazz are a terrible road team ATS. We like the Sixers to cover. Take the Sixers +6.5.

Grizzles +6.5 @ Raptors: We are going against intuition here. We typically take the Raptors. However, we think the Grizzlies will cover. Take the Grizz +6.5.

Warriors -1.5 @ Kings: Very close match-up. Despite the Kings being great dogs at home, we think the Warriors end their trend of covers. Take the Warriors -1.5.

Good luck.

NBA PICKS: DAY 16

Good night last night-3-1. Brings our season record closer to respectability at 26-23-1. Not even close to good, but a little closer to a record that we can talk about in public. It will keep improving. Here’s our picks for tonight:

Magic +3 @ Cavs: We are a little reluctant to take the Magic in this one, but we like the points. We think they will cover. Take the Magic +3.

Jazz -1.5 @ Raptors: A battle of teams that love to cover for us. Utah owns their recent match-ups. Take the Jazz -1.5.

Sixers @ Hornets -8.5: Hornets destroyed them recently in Philly. The Sixers played most of last night’s game against the Mavs close, but lost it big in the end. The Hornets are rested and at home. A lot of points to give-up to a team that plays good D, but we think the Hornets will cover. Take the Hornets -8.5.

Knicks @ Clippers: The Knicks are a team in turmoil. And they are bad. The Clippers are rested and at home. Take the Clippers -8.

Pistons @ Warriors +2.5: The Pistons screwed us last night. The Warriors are winless, and they have too much talent to be winless at this point. They are rested. They get their first W tonight. Take the Warriors +2.5.

Kings +2 @ Wolves: This is an Ike Turner Game (more than typical bet). We like this a lot. Both teams are bad, but the numbers point to the Kings winning big. It is fantastic that they are getting points. Take the Kings +2.

There you go. Good luck with your picks.

NBA PICKS: LUCKY #13

Greetings. 2-0 last night brinning us to 21-18 on the year. If you read our blog yesterday, you’ll remember that we wrote that yesterday, Day 12, was the first step in our road to recovery. Day 13 is our lucky day and is step two. Here are our picks for today:

Hornets @ Sixers +2.5: The Six are playing RIDICULOUS D. They seem to be better without Iverson. The New AI, Andre Igoudala,  is the real deal and is flourishing in his new role as the team go-to-guy. The Hornets have opened eyes this year, too. However, we like the Six at home getting points. Their D is strong enough to keep it within 2.5. Take the Sixers +2.5.

Pistons -6.5 @ Sonics: Sonics have played every bit like the young team they are-flashes of brilliance but usually ending in losses. The Pistons come to town as a heavy veteran favorite. It is justified. Although this is a lot of points to give, we think it is legit. The Pistons will cover. Take the Pistons -6.5.

Rockets -6.5 @ Bobcats: The Rockets have stormed out of the gate this year. They are playing sick D and McGrady is loking like the early favorite for MVP. The Bobcats seem to be putting it together (off an impressive win against the Pacers last Friday). The Rockets just have too much. Take the Rockets -6.5.

Cavaliers @ Clippers Pick ‘EM: The Cavs have not looked good at all. They squeaked out a win against a bad Kings team in their last game. Not good. The Clipp have been the exact opposite. With the exception of the beatdown they caught in Detroit on Friday, they have been real good. We like them at home. Take the Clippers Pick ‘EM.

There you go. Good luck with your picks
