NBA PICKS: 12/11/07

3-2 last night brings our season record to 62-71-2. Terrible, but we are moving in the right direction. Here is what we like tonight:

Raptors -3 @ Hawks: The Hawks are damn hot right now-winners of 3 straight. They destroyed the Magic last night. The Raptors are slowly getting healthy. The Hawks will not win 4 in a row. Take the Raptors -3.

Clippers @ Nets -6.5: The Nets are 0-8-1 ATS in their last 9 home games!!! They are due for a cover. Good thing they got the Clippers. Take the Nets -6.5.

Pistons @ Grizzlies +5.5: The Pistons may be without Rasheed Wallace. It won’t matter tonight. The Pistons aren’t THAT good with him. This is too many points to give on the road to a team that can throw up some points. Pistons may win, but Grizz will keep it close. Take the Grizzlies +5.5.

Trailblazers @ Jazz -13.5: This game is a trap-this is way too many points to give the Blazers. That is why we like the Jazz. The Jazz own them at home and the Blazers will be without LaMarcus Aldridge. This will be a beatdown. Take the Jazz -13.5.

Spurs @ Warriors +3: The Spurs have been really hot-despite no Duncan. He is likely to play tonight. That said, our analysis says the Warriors cover. Take the Warriors +3.

Good luck.

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: 12/6/07

Good evening. We had another disappointing night last night (how soft are the Mavs?!?!?!!?). 2-3-1 last night brings our season to 53-61-2. Only 3 games on the docket tonight. Here’s who we like:

Mavs -7.5 (The Nuggets are the only other team that may be as soft as the Mavs)

Hawks -9 and the UNDER 188.5

Heat -3

Good luck.

Good luck!

NBA Picks for Day 18 – 11/16/2007

We do not have much time today with our new NCAA hoops coverage, NCAA football picks and getting our NFL picks out. We do like 5 NBA games tonight. We went 1-1 yesterday in the NBA and on the season we are 30-27-1. The five picks for today are:

Pistons (+3) at Lakers – Take the Pistons to cover
Heat at Celtics (-11.5) – Celtics are crushing teams. Celtics win and cover
Hornets (-3.5) at Grizzlies – We like the Hornets to win and cover in this one
Sonics at Hawks (-7.5) – We like the Hawks to win big at home
Jazz (-1) at Cavaliers – Jazz are a better team and win this road game

Sorry for the short post but we are in crisis mode cause Runny’s computer died. Look for more detailed posts in the future.

NBA PICKS: 5 FOR 5

Season record is a disappointing 7-7. Not bad for the first week, but not even close to our standards. It takes some time, but we are feeling out the teams and will get on the right track. In honor of day 5 of the NBA season, we got 5 locks for you. Here we go:

Magic +2 @ Wizards: The Magix got a Motor City beatdwon at home last night. The Wiz took part in their own masacre in Beantown last night, too. Who will give? We love us some Agent 0, but the Magic just have more talent. They will rebound and win this game outright. Take the Magic +2.

Bulls -2.5 @ Bucks: The Bulls just haven’t put it together yet. Tough losses to the Nets and the Sixers to start the season (the later being their home opener). Maybe the Kobe talk has got in their heads. The Bucks are also 0-2. The jury is still out on the Yi Jianlian, but we think he will be legit with a little more time. Which team goes 0-3 to start the season? We think it is the Bucks. It will be a close one, but we like the Bulls to cover. Take the Bulls -2.5.

Kings @ Mavs -14.5: The Mavs caught a beatdwon from a HYPED Hawks team in Hotlanta. Wow! The Hawks wanted that game and it showed. The Mavs looked lifeless. They also probably will be without Devin Harris (brusied leg). However, they will get Josh Howard back on Saturday. His suspension will be done just in time to face the Kings-the team he was playing when he got the suspension.  The Kings are probably the worse team in the league right now. They just have no talent, but given the heat from their last match-up, this should be a pretty heated game. We have been on the Mavs wagon for every game so far. Although we generally don’t like to do that, we think it works here. Take the Mavs -14.5.

Warriors @ Jazz -8.5: Jazz opened their season by giving the Warriors a beatdwon in Oaktown.  Rematch time. They will not beat them as bad at home, but they will cover the 8.5. Take the Jazz -8.5.

Trailblazers +12 @ Rockets: The Blazers caught a beatdown in New Orleans. The Rockets have been locked in against the lakers and the Jazz-two solid teams. However, the Blazers were our darlings last year. We like them to cover. Take the Blazers +12.

There’s our 5. Good like with yours.

NBA PICKS: DAY 4

Terrible night last night. Dropped both games bringing our record to 5-5. One of our losses (Suns) was an Ike Turner game. That one hurt. However, basketball is all about rebounding and that is what we are going to do tonight. Let’s roll:

Pistons +3 @ Magic: Tough game to pick. The Magic are solid and so are the Pistons. Pistons destroyed the Heat last night. They may lose to the Magic, but they will cover. Take the Pistons +3.

Mavs -6 @ Hawks: Easy game. Mavs are on a mission. They destroy the Hawks. Take the Mavs -6.

Wizards @ Celtics -6.5: Home opener for the new look Celts. They are stacked. Get them early before injuries set in. They roll over Agent 0 and the Wiz. Take the Celtics -6.5.

Blazers +8 @ Hornets: Hornets destroyed the Kings and looked good. The Blazers scraped against the Spurs but lost. I’m not convinced the Hornets are that good. Take the Blazers +8.

There you go. 4 Locks for the rebound.
