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.

Lakers -7.5

Jazz -3.5

Bucks +1.5 & the OVER 193

Nets/Cavs OVER 189

Good luck.

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 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 19 (11/17/07)

0-5 night last night really hurt us. 30-32-1 on the season. Terrible. Terrible. Terrible. Looking to rally tonight. Here’s who we like:

Blazers +6.5 @ Wizards: The Wiz were impressive last night in Minnesota. The Blazers lost on the road to a decent Sixers team. Interesting game here. The Blazers cover a lot for us, even though they have been terrible ATS in ther recent road games. However, the road team in this meeting is 8-2 ATS in the last 10. This is too many points. Take the Blazers +6.5.

Sonics @ Bobcats -8: Durant is bursting on to the scene!!!! Can only build confidence from last night. However, the Bocats are just too good. Especially at home and rested. Take the Bobcats -8.

Jazz -5.5 @ Pacers: Pacers sucks. Jazz will rebound. Take the Jazz -5.5.

Hornets -6 @ T’Wolves: The Hornets are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 meetings with the Wolves. The Hornets will rebound from last night. Take the Hornets -6.

Suns -6 @ Rockets: Rockets have hit the wall. No McGrady. The Suns are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 meetings and the road team is 9-3 ATS in their last 12. Take the Suns -6.

There you go. Good luck with your picks.

NBA Picks for Day 18 – 11/16/2007

We do not have much time today with our new NCAA hoops coverage, NCAA football picks and getting our NFL picks out. We do like 5 NBA games tonight. We went 1-1 yesterday in the NBA and on the season we are 30-27-1. The five picks for today are:

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 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 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 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.
