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: 12/7/07

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: 12/6/07

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.

NBA PICKS: 11/30/07

We lost are only game last night as the Rockets failed to show-up at the Warriors. Brings our season record to a heart breaking 43-47-1. We are down, but definately not out. The season still has a long way to go and we are in it to win it. Here are our picks for tonight:

Celtics -3 @ Heat: The C’s head south to South Beach after an absolute beating of the Knicks. The Knicks put on the worse pefromance I have ever seen. Why Q. Richardson talked smack before the game about the C’s amazes me. This line is low because the Celtics are a much different team playing back-to-back games. Also, the last time they played the Heat it was at home and they barely won. We think they took the Heat for granted in the game. They will be ready for them now. 3 points is not too much for this team. Take the Celtics -3

Pacers -1.5 @ Sonics: The Pacers have been playing decent lately. The Sonics are very young and they have been making teams work to beat them. We think the experience of the pacers will win out here. Take the Pacers -1.5.

Blazers +13.5 @ Mavs: The Blazers are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games. It will end tonight. Take the Blazers +13.5.

Magic +5.5 @ Suns: The Suns have been an enigma ATS this year (if you’ve paid attention to our picks, you’ll know that that is EXTREMELY frustrating to us). The Magic are our homies. We are ridin’ with them. We think they win outright. Take the Magic +5.5.

Bucks -1.5 @ Knicks: Although experience tells us that we should take the Knicks here, we aren’t. F the Knicks. We are taking the Bucks on principal. Take the Bucks -1.5.

Good luck.

NBA PICKS: 11/27/07

Greetings. We look to get off the schneid tonight after another terrible 1-2 night. We feel like the Bengals of NBA picking!!! Our season record is 39-42-1. No need to tell us how bad it is. We have been in ruts like this before. We will rebound. Here is what we like tonight:

Celtics -4 @ Cavs: This line has been going up throughout the day. Easy to understand why-the Celtics should roll. They are coming off of 2 full days of rest. The two other times they have done that this year (Pacers & Warriors) they are 2-0 ATS. In those two games they beat their opponents by an average of 19 points. They may not do that much damage to the Cavs on the road tonight, but they can cover 4. This is a Ike Turner Game (5 X your normal bet) for us. We actually added a little more stank to it for us. Take the Celtics Ike Style -4.

Grizzlies + 6 @ Nets: The Nets finally got Vinsanity back, and they are playing much better since his return to the line-up. They should win this game, but we think the Grizz will keep it closer than 6. Take the Grizzlies +6.

Bobcats +7 @ Heat: The Heat are improving day by day with the return of Flash. However, they are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 against the NBA Southeast. That stat screams they that they are due to cover. However, there are a whole lot more ATS numbers that back-up the fact that they will not cover tonight either. The Bobcats have a HUGE mismatch at PG. That is telling-Felton can handle the rock enough to keep this close. We think 7 points is just too much. Take the Bobcats +7.

That is our action on NBA for the night. Good luck with your picks.

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: DAY 15

2-0-1 last night brought our season record to 23-22-1. Glad to be back on the winning side. Hopefully you are, too. Let’s keep it going. Here are our picks for tonight:

Celtics -7 @ Pacers: The spread is high for a road team, but the Celtics are rested and are destroying teams. We are riding with them until they hurt us. Take the Celtics -7.

Heat +1.5 @ Bobcats: Bobcats already beat them down in Miami earlier in the season. We like them to do the same at home. Take the Bobcats -1.5.

Rockets @ Grizzlies +6.5: Rockets are a different team on the road. They are terrible ATS on Tuesday, too. Take the Grizzlies +6.5.

Pistons -5 @ Blazers: This game scares us a little because the Pistons are a terrible road team. However, the Blazers have been terrible ATS against Central teams. We think the Pistons have enough and will cover. Take the Pistons -5.

There’s our picks for tonight. Good luck.
