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: 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.

NBA Picks: Day 20 – 11/19/2007

On the season we are 33-34-1 and we have two picks for you tonight:

Game 1 = Magic at Hornets (-1) – We are taking the Hornets to win and cover. We think the Hornets are a better team and the Magic are coming off a tough win last night and will be spent. Back to back games get in their way. Hornets will be rested and ready to run.

Game 2 = Nets at Jazz (-11) – We like the Jazz to win and cover. Vegas knows this is going to be an ass whooping and could have set a higher line and we still would have taken it.

NBA PICKS: DAY 14

We must start with an apology. 0-4 last night brought our record to 21-22. No need to provide any explanation. Just an apology. Sorry. We are in the same boat (we back-up our picks). Only place to go from here is up. Here you go:

Hornets @ Nets +2: Intriguing match-up. The Hornets have shown flashes of brilliance. The Nets have been their usual sturdy self. However, Vinsanity tweaked his ankle and is doubtful for tonight. That is a big loss for the Nets. However, even with Vince out, the Nets still kept is somewhat close against the Celtics. They still have other weapons, but not enough to keep up with the Hornets. Also, the road team is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings and the Hornets are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 road games. Take the Hornets -2.

Cavs @ Nuggets -7.5: The Cavs roll into Denver after their solid win last night against the Clippers. They will face a rested Nuggets team that dominated in their last two games (both wins). The Nuggets are without Nene. That is a big loss. We like the rested Nuggets team to cover. Take the Nuggets -7.5.

Kings @ Jazz -13.5: The Kings have been terrible on the road. The Jazz have been solid at home. This is a lot of points and in their last 17 meetings in Utah, the Kings are 13-4 ATS. That would seem to say take the Kings and the points. We just can’t do it. We are sticking with the Jazz. Take the Jazz -13.5.

Good luck.

NBA PICKS DAY 12: 12 STEP ROAD TO RECOVERY

Terrible. Terible. Terrible. 1-3 last night dropped us to 19-18 on the season.  Our worse start ever. We apologize to everyone who looks at our picks. If it is any consolation, we are in the same boat as you (if you used our any of our picks). That said, we will keep plugging and will work our way back. We like two games on Day 12. Here they are:

Celtics +1.5 @ Nets: The C’s are off an impressive beatdown of the Hawks at home last night. Very impressive. The Nets have been scrappy. Last season we rode the Nets a lot. They came through for us more often than not. We like them this year, too. However, not tonight. The C’s are decimating teams. They are a veteran club and play like it. The Nets are the same and this will be a great game. The Nets will give the C’s their toughest test to date. We think the C’s win outright. Take the Celtics +1.5.

Raptors +5.5 @ Bulls: The Bulls seemed to right their ship with an impressive win at home Thursday night against the Pistons. The Raptors are one of our cover horses. We are rollin’ with them tonight. Take the Raptors +5.5.

There’s our picks. Good luck with your’s.

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.
