todays picks

Raptors at Jazz

We are heading into the home stretch of the season and it looks like we got a good one brewing in Salt Lake City between two…what on paper look like very similar teams. Toronto blasted Utah at Scotiabank Arena by 20 points on what was a 2 point Vegas line. Will the revenge factor come into play tonight?

Clippers at Thunder

In what will be one of the biggest money games of the day, we have a rematch in OKC where the LA Clippers travel back to face a Thunder team that just taken it’s worst loss in franchise history Sunday in Milwaukee.  Read more

Thunder at Bucks

On what should be one of most bet on games of the night and also an ESPN feature game, we have a red hot OKC team that is playing their first home/road back to back of the season.  After 19 point comeback win last night verses Sacramento, Thunder have failed to cover the spread now two games in a row.  They head into Milwaukee as a surprising double digit underdog.  The back to back games has a lot to do with this line being set at 10.5 as well as OKC potentially resting Gallinari tonight.

Thunder at Bulls

Tonight looks to be a favorable match up for the boys in blue and orange, but don’t let that fool you.

Bucks at Wizards

Points…points…points and more points.

This is what we are looking for with a game where Vegas opened them at 240 and this line has been steadily jamming all day and is now up to 244 in most books.

It has most likely reached it’s peak at 244 with the public coming back on the under at around 52% but that’s not where I’m looking for action at with a line set at 12.5 and has now moved to 13.5 with everyone hammering on Milwaukee and I agree.

 Although I feel like there is a better spot within the lines. I really like The Bucks 1st half team total over 63.5.

You have a couple of things that are making this a good looking play. Giannis is projected over 35 points for the game and The Bucks are the leagues leading scoring team averaging 119.7 points per game. This game has blowout written all over it and I expect Milwaukee to do most of that scoring in the first half and cruise into the 2nd half, which will lead Vegas to get some of their money back on over bettors in the 2nd half.  This is a disastrous matchup for any of the Wizards defenders which are statistically ranked one of the worst in the NBA with the 28th overall defense.

Main reason i’m focusing on only the 1st half team total is that I think it is the best shot based on what the numbers look like. Yes, Milwaukee are covering machines but The Wizards are no slouch either when it comes to putting up points as they have the 6th ranked scoring offense in the league.

I’m going ride the offense of the better team in this one. Educated play Milwaukee Bucks 1st half team total over 63.5.

Best of luck whichever way you go.

Nets vs Sixers

We are fresh out of the All Star break and I was going to do an article about how to bet NBA in the second half of the season, but these numbers are dialing up on Brooklyn. There are over 4000 bets on this game right now, which is the TNT primetime game.  Read more

Lakers vs 76ers

I’m looking at the NBA feature game on ABC tonight. This is more or less a situational handicap with line opening on the road team at -4.5. The market has slammed Lakers on both the ticket and the money side but the line went into reverse from 4.5 to 4 which has created a money move on Sixers up to 46% and moved the back to 4.5 at the time of this article. I like the home dog in this spot with the public heavy on the Lakers. Philly is carrying a 20-2 SU home record this year they are also +5.77 on the moneyline at home. Lakers obviously not a slouch either going 8-2 SU L10 and a 20-4 road record SU. The ref matchup here is interesting as well with their home ATS capping out at 54.4% This is a perception play on The Sixers, I’m buying off the hook and playing them +5 and taking a shot at the ML. Best of luck whichever way you go. #wmf
