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: 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

NBA PICKS DAY 11

Terrible 0-2 night last night dropped us to 18-15 on the season.  That puts us at about 55% on the season. Believe us, that is freakin’ terrible for our standards. We will get it rolling. Here’s who we like tonight:

Magic Pick’Em @ Knicks: The Zack Randolph trade may have saved Isaiah his job for another two seasons. The Knicks are playing well. So are the Magic. This is a very intriguing game. The Magic are our cover horses. We are sticking with them until they fail us. Take the Magic Pick ‘Em.

Pacers +1.5 @ Bobcats: This game may be a trap-our analysis says the Pacers should be favored by at least 3.5 in this game. If it is a trap, we are falling for it. Take the Pacers +1.5.

Clippers +8 @ Pistons: The Clipp have been extremely fun to watch this year. The Pistons have not been what we thought they would be (never should have lost to a struggling Bulls team this week). We think the Pistons rebound at home and win, but not cover. Take the Clippers +8.

Jazz -6 @ Sonics: Very interesting game. On paper, the Jazz should steamroll the Sonics. The Sonics are young and are making the typical mistakes a young team will make. The Jazz have been good, but don’t look like they have improved from last year. The season is long though. Our gut is telling us that the Sonics cover at home. We just think the jazz have too many weapons. Take the Jazz -6.

There’s our 4 picks for the night. Good luck with your’s.

NBA PICKS: DAY 8

13-9 on the season. We are geting there. Here are our locks for Day 8:

Clippers +7 @ Bulls: Bulls have stumbled bad out of the gates. The Clipp look very similar to the team of last year-good but not great. Our analysis says they will lose, but they have enough to keep it within 7. Take the Clippers +7.

Hornets +3.5 @ Lakers: The Lakers are completely surprising us this year. We did not expect them to come out like they have. They are relentless at home. However, the Hornets have been just as surprising (if not more so). Our analysis says the Hornets will cover and probably win outright. Take the Hornets +3.5

Sonics +3 @ Kings: Sonics are young, but they play hard. We love Durant!! He is as good as advertised. The Kings are terrible. They won’t beat anyone by 3 or more. Take the Sonics +3.

Raptors -2.5 @ Bucks: Bucks are decent, but the Raptors are cover deamons. Even on the road, our analysis says Raptors all the way. Take the Raptors -2.5.

Magic -6.5 @ T’Wolves: The T’wolves losing KG hit them extremely hard. They are a fraction of the team they were last year. The Magic are legit, and like the Raptors, are cover deamons. Our analysis likes the Magic on the road. Take the Magic -6.5.

There you go. 5 locks for Day 8. Good luck with your picks.
