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 22 (11/21/07)

Disappointing 1-1 last night brings our season to 35-36-1, F’ing terrible! We like 4 games tonight:

Wizards @ Bobcats -5.5: Wizards looked great last night. Especially given that they played without Agent 0. They will be tired tonight. The Bobcats will be ready. We love them at home. Bobcats own their recent meetings ATS. Take the Bobcats -5.5.

Mavs +2 @ Rockets: Rockets are banged-up. We love the mavs getting points. Take the Mavs +2.

Magic +5.5 @ Spurs: We will never doubt the mighty magic again!! The Spurs are terrible ATS. We think the Magic win outright. Take the Magic +5.5.

Kings @ Suns -13.5: We are taking this simply because we think it is a trap. After last night, everything says take the Kings. That is why we are taking the Suns. Take the Suns -13.5.

Good luck!

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.

NBA PICKS: DAY 4

Terrible night last night. Dropped both games bringing our record to 5-5. One of our losses (Suns) was an Ike Turner game. That one hurt. However, basketball is all about rebounding and that is what we are going to do tonight. Let’s roll:

Pistons +3 @ Magic: Tough game to pick. The Magic are solid and so are the Pistons. Pistons destroyed the Heat last night. They may lose to the Magic, but they will cover. Take the Pistons +3.

Mavs -6 @ Hawks: Easy game. Mavs are on a mission. They destroy the Hawks. Take the Mavs -6.

Wizards @ Celtics -6.5: Home opener for the new look Celts. They are stacked. Get them early before injuries set in. They roll over Agent 0 and the Wiz. Take the Celtics -6.5.

Blazers +8 @ Hornets: Hornets destroyed the Kings and looked good. The Blazers scraped against the Spurs but lost. I’m not convinced the Hornets are that good. Take the Blazers +8.

There you go. 4 Locks for the rebound.
