Wizards vs. Knicks NBA Over-Under Betting Prediction from Jamie Michaels: February 9th 2016

WIZARDS VS. KNICKS BETTINGWashington Wizards vs. New York Knicks
Betting Prediction: Under 207 points (February 9th 2016)

The New York Knicks (23-31) are on a downward spiral heading into the All-Star break this weekend on a 5-game losing streak with 9 losses in their last 10 games. They have managed to score an unimpressive 95.9 points per game during that stretch, and that’s including a 122-128 OT loss to OKC. So the news of HC Derek Fisher’s firing is really no surprise, but there is uncertainty surrounding his replacement. The Knicks host a Washington Wizards team (22-27) who hasn’t fared much better, having lost their last 6 of 8 games with an average score of 104 points per game, and that’s with a 121-134 loss to the up-tempo Golden State Warriors. Their first meeting back in October resulted in a 117-110 score in favor of the Knicks, but the game also produced an incredible 62 fouls, including 3 technicals, for a combined 54 free-throw points. Maybe less significant is the fact that Carmelo Anthony, who raked in 37 points that game, is coming in tonight nursing a sore leg, so I don’t expect the same level of performance from him. For the season, neither team is averaging more than 103 points per game, and unless this game goes to OT, I don’t see them getting to 207 tonight. Take the UNDER 207 for the free win!

Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks Point Spread Pick from Heath Mac: February 9th 2016

JAZZ VS. MAVERICKS BETTINGUtah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks
Point Spread Pick: Mavericks -1.5 points -110 odds (February 9th 2016)

The Mavs have had a tough run in their last few games, playing the Spurs, Heat and Hawks, all teams likely to feature deep into the play offs. Around those three losses, the Mavs beat the Suns and are coming off a solid road win over Memphis. The Mavs can put up points okay, but sometimes allow the better teams to put up too many points with an average defense. That shouldn’t be a problem here against a Jazz team that plays outstanding defense, but owns the 26th ranked offense and relies on grinding out games. Usually if a team only put up 84 and 85 points in back to back games, we would expect them to be losses. However this Jazz side won both those games last week over the Bucks and Nuggets.

Apart from their offense, if the Jazz have a glaring weakness, it is still that they struggle to win games on the road, where they are just 8-15 SU this season. The Mavs on the other hand have been superb on their home court with a 5-10 SU and 16-9 ATS record. Interestingly, the Mavs are 11-4 ATS at home against Western Conference sides as well, while the Jazz are 5-8 ATS on the road against the West, despite often getting a solid number of points start.

Utah is 3-10 SU in its last 13 games on the road. Utah is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games on the road. Utah is 1-6-1 ATS in its last 8 games when playing Dallas. Utah is 1-9 SU in its last 10 games when playing Dallas. Utah is 0-5 SU in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Dallas. Dallas is 16-7-1 ATS in its last 24 games when playing at home against Utah. That’s a lot of trends that point to a Mavs win and cover here.

For our free pick, take the Mavs -1.5 points here.

Thunder vs. Suns NBA Point Spread Pick from Scott Rickenbach: February 8th 2016

THUNDER VS. SUNSOklahoma City Thunder vs. Phoenix Suns
Point Spread Pick: Suns +13.5 (February 8th 2016)

Scott ‘The Bulldog’ Rickenbach NBA *1* Free Pick on Phoenix Suns +13.5 vs Oklahoma City @ 9:05 PM ET Monday – Phoenix certainly has been a disappointment this season but the Suns recently battled hard (and got the cover in each game) against the Raptors and Rockets. This was before falling just short of the money against the Jazz on Saturday. That said, based on the way the Suns have been playing recently (three straight losses by single digit margins) I do see a lot of value with Phoenix as a big dog here. This is especially true considering that Oklahoma City is off of a huge game with Golden State. I know the Thunder lost the game and certainly will want to respond but are they really going to be that interested in pounding a Phoenix team that they’ve already defeated in 5 of the last 6 meetings. This is a flat spot for a Thunder team that, although they’ve been winning, they’ve not been able to achieve significant margins. In fact, the Thunder are 5-17 ATS on the road this season and just 7-19 ATS in their games this season against teams with a losing record. Phoenix is 27-19 ATS the past three seasons in their games versus Northwest Division opposition. The Suns lost by just 4 points at Oklahoma City on New Year’s Eve. Don’t be surprised if this is another Phoenix loss by just single digits. Consider a small play on Phoenix +13.5 as it is my Free Pick for Monday. Best of luck, Scott

Bulls vs. Hornets NBA Odds: Shively betting the under 204 points on February 8th 2016

BULLS VS. HORNETS ODDSChicago Bulls vs. Charlotte Hornets
Over-Under Pick: Under 204 points -110 odds (February 8th 2016)

This will be the 4th meeting between these two teams this season. The first game went way over (130-105) as Charlotte was raining three pointers. The next two games went under with final point totals of 199 and 198 points. Last year, the final scores in this game were 184 (twice), 192, and 197. While the Bulls play are more of an offensive team this season, they are expected to be without Jimmy Butler tonight and Mirotic is still out. Butler is the Bulls best player and I think we see the offense stall out more and go on scoring droughts. Mike Dunleavy is working his way back into the rotation, but is still a bit rusty and is getting back into ‘NBA game speed’.

The three totals this season have been set at 193.5, 199, and 195.5. I went back the last 30 meetings between these two teams and this is the highest total yet giving us more value on the game.

This is the Bulls seventh consecutive road game now and they have lost four of their last five on the road. Charlotte has held three of their last four opponents to 98 points or less. The Hornets are only shooting 43.2% from the floor over their last five games and I see this as a defensive type game. The Bulls have lost two straight and seven of their last ten. This is a team that needs to toughen up and that starts on defense. Take the *UNDER*

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Utah Jazz NBA Betting Prediction from Scott Rickenbach: February 5th 2016


Milwaukee Bucks vs. Utah Jazz
Betting Prediction: Bucks +7.5 points (February 5th 2016)

Scott ‘The Bulldog’ Rickenbach NBA *1* Free Pick Milwaukee Bucks +7.5 @ Utah @ 9:05 PM ET Friday – The Bucks have lost four straight games. However, prior to their non-covering loss at Portland on Tuesday, Milwaukee had been a perfect 5-0 ATS this season when they entered a game on a losing streak of 3 games or more. They failed to cover in that back to back spot against the Trail Blazers but now have had two full days off leading into this match-up at Utah. Also, after facing the Jazz, the Bucks have three off days coming up. That said, Milwaukee is fully focused on this standalone game – this is only game for them in a 6 day period – and I see a lot of line value here with the Bucks as a big dog. Milwaukee lost both games with Utah last season but the average margin was only 4.5 points per defeat. The Bucks have gone 5-1 ATS against Northwest Division opponents and the Jazz have a western conference foe on deck for tomorrow night so they may not give the Bucks their full attention tonight. Utah, the past three seasons combined, is 4-9 ATS as a home favorite of 6.5 to 9 points. Look for another ATS loss in that role tonight. Consider a small play on Milwaukee +7.5 as it is my Free Pick for Friday. Best of luck, Scott

Memphis Grizzlies vs. New York Knicks Betting Pick from Mike Lundin: February 5th 2016

GRIZZLIES VS. KNICKS BETTINGMemphis Grizzlies vs. New York Knicks
NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies -3.5 (February 5th 2016)

This looks like a very tough spot for the New York Knicks who have lost seven of their last eight and are fresh off a 111-105 setback at Detroit last night. They’re returning home to MSG to take on the red hot Memphis Grizzlies who are winners of eight of their last nine and four straight (4-0 ATS). The Grizzlies defeated the Knicks 103-95 on Jan. 16 as Marc Gasol scored 37 points and the center has averaged 20.4 on 50.6% shooting in his past 10 games. The Grizzlies have covered the spread in four of the last five meetings in the series and should have no trouble to win and cover tonight as well.

Note that:
– Mike Lundin won again with his lone CBB pick Thursday to make it an UNREAL 12-2 RUN with College Basketball.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction from Stephen Nover: February 5th 2016

SPURS VS. MAVERICKS BETTINGSan Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks
NBA Prediction: Spurs -6.5 (February 5th 2016)

Obviously there’s a huge class difference here. San Antonio is 16-2 since Christmas with its lone losses during this span coming to Golden State and Cleveland. The Warriors and Cavaliers are the only foes to reach triple digits in San Antonio’s last 14 games.

San Antonio has covered 73 percent of its last 26 Western Conference matchups and is 18-8 ATS during its last 26 games overall.

The Spurs hosted Dallas and beat the Mavericks, 112-83, on Jan. 17. That was the Mavericks’ worst loss of the season. Dallas last beat the Spurs during the regular season in 2010. The Mavericks have a losing record in their last 20 games, including going 2-9 versus above .500 opponents. The Mavericks just lost 112-97 on the road to Atlanta on Monday and fell 93-90 at home to Miami on Wednesday.

So not only are the Spurs easily able to cover this spread based on merit, but the Mavericks may decide to punt the game. That’s because Dallas plays at Memphis on Saturday. The Grizzlies are the team that figures to be the Mavericks’ prime competitor for the No. 5 playoff seed in the West.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle has taken to resting his veteran starters when consecutive games have fallen on the schedule. Deron Williams missed Dallas’ last game with a hip injury. Backup point guard Devin Harris is likely to sit out his seventh consecutive game with a toe injury. Williams said he should be able to play tonight. But Carlisle might hold out Williams another game, along with Dirk Nowitzki, if he decides to concede this tough matchup in order to enhance an all-out effort tomorrow versus the Grizzlies.

The Spurs also play on Saturday, but their matchup is against the lowly Lakers. (Editor’s note: Stephen Nover is one of the top NBA ‘cappers in the country. Stephen is 36-17 on his last 53 premium/free NBA plays, including 17-8 on his last 25. Don’t miss the rest of Stephen’s Friday NBA plays.)

Lakers vs. Pelicans Betting Odds: Lundin betting New Orleans -10 points on February 4th 2016

LAKERS VS. PELICANSLos Angeles Lakers vs. New Orleans Pelicans
NBA Betting Pick: Pelicans -10 -110 odds (February 4th 2016)

The New Orleans Pelicans are off a pair of losses and fell 110-97 at San Antonio last night. They’re 4-0 ATS in their last four playing on no rest and I like their chances of bouncing back with a win tonight as they host the lowly Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant had 38 points as the Lakers ended a 10-game skid with a 119-115 win against the Timberwolves Tuesday, the first contest in their last 12 they managed to break the 100-points barrier. They’re however 6-14 ATS in their last 20 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games following a straight up win.

The Pels have dropped five games behind Portland and Utah in the battle for the final Western Conference playoff berth and will play five of their next seven games on the road. They can’t afford to throw this “easy” game away, and I expect them to come out and play very very hard.

Note that:
– Thursday’s premium picks card from Mike Lundin features a Top Rated 10* selection on Raptors@Blazers and an 8* Rated CBB pick on Tulsa@Temple. Mike’s on an UNREAL 50-29 NBA Run and 11-2 L13 College Basketball plays, sign up for an All Sports All Access Pass now and WIN BIG!

Pelicans vs. Spurs Odds: Jack Jones betting New Orleans +13.5 on February 3rd 2016

PELICANS VS. SPURS ODDSNew Orleans Pelicans vs. San Antonio Spurs
Betting Pick: Pelicans +13.5 (February 3rd 2016)

The New Orleans Pelicans are showing great value today as massive 13.5-point road underdogs to the San Antonio Spurs. I look for them to be competitive in this game four four quarters and to easily stay within this spread, which will be their largest of the season.

The Pelicans have really turned the corner in recent weeks. They have gone 7-3 SU in their last 10 games overall. In fact, five of their last six losses have come by 5 points or less, and they have only lost one of their last 13 games by more than this 13.5-point margin.

The San Antonio Spurs are an impressive 26-0 at home this season, but they are overvalued as a result when playing at home. The betting public knows about this home winning streak and are quick to back the Spurs because of it. But laying 13.5 points to the Pelicans is too much.

New Orleans has had San Antonio’s number in recent meetings, going 4-1 SU & 5-0 ATS in the last five with its only loss coming in overtime by a final of 95-93 on the road. The Pelicans are 24-9 ATS vs. teams who make 46% or more of their shots over the last two seasons. Bet the Pelicans Wednesday.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Portland Trailblazers NBA Betting Pick from Mike Lundin: February 2nd 2016


Milwaukee Bucks vs. Portland Trailblazers
NBA Betting Pick: Blazers -7 (February 2nd 2016)

You just gotta love the surging Portland Trail Blazers Tuesday night when they take the Milwaukee Bucks home at Moda Center. Milwaukee has lost five of its last six and is off a 111-104 setback at Sacramento last night. We can expect to see some tired legs here, and that does not bode well against a Portland team that has finished games very strong lately. The Trail Blazers are off four straight wins home in Portland and they’re 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400. Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum are on fire and the latter ranks eighth in the NBA with 113 3-pointers on the season while Lillard has topped 30 points in four of his past 11 contests.
