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: 12/7/07

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.

NBA PICKS: 12/3/07

We are off to a glorius start in December. 1-4!! Gotta love that. Our season record stands at 47-53-1. That is our worse start ever. But, we are persistent. That said, here is who we like tonight:

Blazers +9

Bulls +3.5

Hawks +2.5

Warriors -2.5

Good luck!

NBA PICKS: 11/29/07

3-2 last night finally got us a winning night. Baby steps. Baby steps. Our season record stands at 43-46-1. Inching closer to .500. There are three games tonight. We like one of them. Here it is:

Rockets -1.5 @ Warriors: Both teams played last night, so they will be travelling. Houston looked impressive last night against the Suns. The Warriors pulled a win out of their hats against the Kings. We think the Rockets are playing better. They have Yao in the middle. They will win the board battle and they have enough scorers to win by 2. Take the Rockets -1.5.

As always, good luck with your picks.

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: 11/26/07

Greetings. Our Turkey Day weekend picks were not kind to us at all. But, this is a new week and we are forever the optimists. Our season records stands at 38-40-1. We like 3 games tonight. Here we go:

Suns -5 @ Warriors: This game scares us somewhat given that it is a low spread and the Suns are on the road. Also, the Suns have been hit-or-miss ATS all season. The fact remains that they are loaded with scorers. The Suns have been terrible ATS in their last head-to-head meetings (4-6 in their last 10). However, we think they match-up well and will cover. Take the Suns -5.

Magic -5 @ Blazers: The Blazers were our cover horses last season. Losing Randolph and Oden have hurt them this year. They have not been consistent ATS. The Magic have been ridiculously hot. The ATS numbers lean slightly towards the Blazers (Magic are 3-9-2 ATS in their last 14 head-to-head match-ups, but they are 13-3-2 in their last 18 road games and the Blazers are 7-22 ATS in their last 29 Monday games, and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games), but this is not the same Blazers team. This is also a much better Magic squad. The Magic are loaded and hot. Take advantage. Take the Magic -5.

Jazz -5 @ Knicks: This game is a clean sweep game. The Jazz beat them (soundly) in all the ATS  numbers. They are rested and loaded. The Knicks ended their losing streak Saturday against the Bulls. The Bulls are not good though. The Jazz roll. Take the Jazz -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 DAY 10

Our record is 18-13 on the season. Only three games on the slate tonight. We like two of them:

Pistons -1 @ Bulls: Bitter division rivals. The Bulls are just playing terrible now and have stumbled bigtime out of the gate. The Pistons are the exact opposite. We love this line. It should be higher. Take advantage of the Bulls now. Take the Pistons -1.

Mavericks @ Warriors: This is a rematch of last season’s historical playoff upset. The Mavs are playing like they did last year. We think this is the game they have circled on their calendars since the upset. They will steam roll an inferior Warriors team. Although this is a lot of points, we think the Mavs will get payback. Take the Mavs -7.5.

Good luck with your picks.

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: TIME TO JUMP START THE SEASON!!!!

WHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Opening night for the 2008-2009 NBA season is only one day away!! Just like last year, you can be sure that we are going to be all over picks this year. We are ready to roll. As you may know from last season, Flash and I didn’t pick every game or make picks everyday. Just like our NCAA football and NFL action this year, we only pick the games we like. That said, we like action in all three games on opening night. Without further to do, here we go:

Blazers @ Spurs -13.5: No history at all for this season. Last year the Spurs killed us ATS. They never covered when we picked them. On the other hand, the Blazers were very good for us ATS. However, that was last year. The Spurs are the champs. They are at home. They are healthy. The Blazers have no Oden and they traded Randolph away. Here is their projected starting 5: G Jarrett Jack, G Fred Jones, F Raef LaFrentz, F Martell Webster and C Jamaal Magliore. No other analysis required. The Spurs roll. Take the Spurs -13.5.

Jazz +3 @ Warriors: The Warriors are fresh off their Cinderella-story playoff run at the end of last year. The Jazz turned a lot of heads and are extremely talented. We like them to cover in this one. Will be a great game. Take the Jazz +3.

Rockets -5.5 @ Kobe: This game is all about the Rockets against one man-Kobe. There is no other threat on that team. Kobe is disgruntled and Phil is calling him out in the press. I think this is Zen move on the part of Phil will backfire. The Rockets will win big. Take the Rockets -5.5.

That’s how we see it. Good luck with your picks.
