Disappotining 1-1 last night brought our playoff record to 6-4. Not bad, but we haven’t had a losing night yet. How bad are the Wizards?!?!!?!? They are getting beat one man. Granted, that one man is LeBron, but still. Terrible showing. Anyway, on to tonight’s games. Here’s our picks:

Suns +2 @ Spurs: On paper, Game One looked like the Spurs barely won. However, watching that game was not dramatic at all. Even with Nash’s shot to tie….you just knew the Spurs had it handled. However, that said, the Suns stil covered. They played poorly and still got it done ATS. We LOVE that!! We are riding them again. Take the Suns +2.

Raptors @ Magic -6: Magic showed they are clearly the better team. They decimate them in game 2. Take the Magic -6.

Mavs +3.5 @ Hornets: Hornets spanked them pretty good in Game One. However, the Mavs shot only 33%. They won’t do that again. They had a huge lead in Game One and let it slip away. They won’t make the same mistakes again. Avery Johnson called out Dampier. Good. It was needed. Mavs cover and win. Take the Mavs +3.5.

Good luck!

Greetings!! Good 3-1 recovery yesterday brought our weekend record to 5-3.  Winning, but not where we need to be. That said, onward and upward and into tonight’s action. Here you go:

Wiz +2 @ Cavs: What was Stevenson thinking talking crap about LeBron?!?!?!!? They had that game won outright, but King James took over. One of the best dunks I have ever seen. Once he unleashed that, I knew our cover chances were done. That said, the Wiz had that game. They had it. We think that left a bad taste in their mouths. We love them tonight. Take the Wiz +2.

Jazz +1 @ Rockets: Jazz decimated the Rockets in Game One. Just like we thought. We LOVE them as the ‘dogs in this one, too. They win outright. Take the Jazz +1.

As always-good luck!

Greetings! It has been a while since Flash and I have surfaced with a post. We apologize for the absence. Most of our disappearance was due to the NCAA and NFL football seasons coming to a sad end. We usually go into a morbid hibernation at the end of the football season, but we know there is plenty of work to do!

As you know, we started off the NBA season in a bad way. However, we’ve been perfecting our strategies over the course of the rest of the regular season and we are locked in!! We understand the value of putting something in print for the world to see, so we wouldn’t put our picks out there unless we were behind them 100% of the way. That said, we are back lovin’ the NBA again and we have some good insight (and picks) for the upcoming playoffs. Let’s roll:

Wiz +3.5 @ Cavs: Of all the East match-ups, this is THE one where the ‘dog is most likely to win. Granted, we understand that that is not going out on limb with that one, but it is what it is. The Wiz are finally healthy. Agent 0, Caron, Antwan and Deshawn are back together again. That does not spell good news for the Cavs. The Cavs have NOTHING besides Lebron. Nothing, and Lebron is nursing a sore back. If last year is any indication, Lebron is the one (if not only) guy that can carry a team by himself into the finals. He did it last year. However, we don’t think he will do it again. This line keeps going up, too. We love it!! We think the Wiz win this series in 5. For game one, Take the Wiz +2.5.

Suns +4 @ Spurs: Of all the West match-ups, this is the one where the ‘dog is most likely to win. The Spurs have shown how the West was one for years now. For this one, the Spurs have a HUGE intangibles advantage. HUGE. They’ve been there before. They play great D. The Suns, on the other hand, have been hit or miss-flashes of brilliance and then losses to teams they should destroy. They rely on deep shooting, so if they are cold, they can get down quick. Sometimes it is too much to dig out. To address this, they went out and got the Diesel to shore up their middle and to take some pressure off of Amare. Amare has flourished. It remains to be seen if their ultimate goal will come through. The Suns may be without Grant Hill. This could be a big loss. However, we think their front court is enough to keep this game close. Suns win this series in 7 game. Take the Suns +4 in game one.

Mavs +4.5 @ Hornets: The Hornets are the story of the NBA this year. CP3 is our pick for MVP. He should get it solely for making Tyson Chandler relevant. They are a good, young team. On paper, they should sweep the Mavs. However, that is why they play the games. We think this is going to be a great series. The Hornets will pobably not win a game on the road. Kidd is a HUGE addition to the Mavs and he has enough left to balance out a good chunk of CP3. Dirk can take Tyson. West is not going to stop Howard. At leats not in game one. We think the Hornets win this series in 6, but we like the Mavs to cover in game one. Take the Mavs +4.5.

Jazz +1 @ Rockets: This series will not be close. The Jazz are a terrible road team, but they will represent. The Rockets may get one at home, but that is it. The Jazz roll and have no business being the ‘dog in game one. The Jazz win this series in 5. In game one, take the Jazz +1.

There it is for day one. Take a look and come back for our day two picks.

As always-good luck!

We had a GREAT Week 14 to bring our season record to 54-39-1. We like quite a few games in Week 15. Of course we love tonight’s game, too. Here is what we recommend:

Broncos -1.5 @ Texans: Very boring game for a Thursday night. Neither team really has a legit shot at making the playoffs, so this is pretty useless as far as the NFL goes. However, it is great for handicappers!!!!!!!

The interesting thing about tonight’s match-up is that this line opened with the Texans being the favorite. Vegas quickly changed the line in response to the heavy action on the Broncos. It is no fluke. The Broncos should be favored. The Texans are not that good. We like them to play better at home, but not well enough to beat the Broncos. The Broncos have a good D with shutdown corners that will neutralize Johnson and the Texans receivers. No receivers means Rosenfels/Schaub are not going to be able to pass. No pass puts too much pressure on their running backs. This all equates to a Broncos cover. Take the Broncos -1.5.

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.

1-3 night last night dropped us to 54-64-2 on the season. We are in a bad rut right now, but we know it will change. It has happened before. We know we need to keep working. We like 10 plays tonight. This is what we recommend:

Bucks +1 @ Sonics: The Sonics are really fun to watch and the Bucks have been terrible against them in their recent meetings. However, we think the Bucks front court will get the job done and cover. Take the Bucks +1.

Bulls @ Pistons -8: The Bulls are smokin’ hot right now. We think this line is a trap. It is begging you to take the Bulls. That is why we are taking the Pistons. Take the Pistons -8.

Clippers @ Kings -5: The Clippers are terrible. We LOVE the Kings at home. Take the Kings -5.

Heat +8.5 @ Warriors: The Heat looked terrible last night in Portland. They are not a good team right now. No energy. The Warriors have been just the opposite. That said, we think the Heat get their heads right tonight and muster enough to cover the 8.5. Take the Heat +8.5.

Jazz @ Spurs PICK ‘EM: The Spurs showed a lot in their Duncan-less win against the Mavs. They are a very good, very well coached team. The Jazz will give them a run for their money in this game, but they are a much different team on the road. Much different. Home court gives the Spurs a big edge in this one. Take the Spurs Pick ‘EM.

Rockets -4.5 @ Nets: The Nets are just a mess. The Jason Kidd sick day and trade demand rumors are causing a major headache with this team (we know that is a terrible joke). Regardless of the recent Kidd stuff, the Nets just have not been a good team all year. We love this spread. The Rockets will get after them and take this one. Take the Rockets -4.5.

Pacers @ Magic -8; OVER/UNDER 212: The Pacers have opened eyes this year. Since trading away the trouble makers from last year’s team, they are playing much, much better. That said, we just love the Magic at home. Dwight Howard is a manchild. The Magic front court should out rebound the Pacers and the Magic back-court can handle the Pacers. Take the Magic -8. Also, the OVER is too high for these teams. They match-up well and we think they both play good D. We think they will keep it relatively low scoring. Take the UNDER 212.

Suns -6.5 @ Wizards: The Suns are rollin’ on this road trip. They own the NBA LEast. They roll in this one. Take the Suns -6.5.

Raptors @ Celtics -12:Injuries played a major role in this play. If Bosh and Bargnani were healthy, this would be a different pick (granted the line would be much different, too). The Celtics have been unstoppable at home. TJ Ford cannot do this on his own. Take the Celtics -12.

Heat -3

Good luck.
