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: 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 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.
