Free NBA Pick: Houston Rockets -1 (Dave Price)
The Nuggets are only 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 road games and I expect this trend to continue as they meet a very hungry Houston team off back-to-back home losses tonight. The Rockets are a perfect 4-0 SU & 3-1 ATS at home against Denver the last 3 seasons. It is also important to note that the Nuggets are 0-5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win. While Denver has been playing well, notice that 6 of its 7 straight wins have come at home. Expect a different story out on the road tonight against a hungry team that has had the Nuggets’ number. Take Houston.
Free NBA Pick: Jazz vs. Blazers Over 195.5 (Jim Feist)
The loss of Greg Oden has taken away Portland’s big defensive presence in the middle. The offense, though, is playing well, on a 12-4 run over the total. into town comes Utah, an uptempo offensive team ranked 8th in the NBA in scoring. Utah is on 6-2 run over the total. These teams have met once in a game that sailed over the total by double digits and this has the makings of an uptempo tilt, too. Play the Jazz/Blazers Over the total.
Free NBA Pick: Bulls vs. Thunder Under 195 (Jeff Alexander)
Right away you have to like the Under here when you consider that OKC is 11-2 Under in home games where the total is between 195 and 199.5 points over the last 2 seasons, and we are only seeing an average of 188.1 points in these games. Plus, the Thunder have played to the Under in 4 of their last 5 games and the Bulls are 13-8 to the Under on the road this season. The Thunder are also 20-8 Under in home games versus teams who are called for 21 or less fouls/game over the last 2 seasons, and we are only seeing an average of 191.2 points scored in these games. In other words, we don’t expect many points to be scored at the free throw line with the clock stopped tonight. Bet the Under.
