22.01.15 – Utah Jazz 92 @ Cleveland Cavaliers 106
06.11.14 – Cleveland Cavaliers 100 @ Utah Jazz 102

Picks –

Utah have won 7-3 of their last 10, while Cavs have struggled through a 4-6 run.

We wouldn’t want to make too much of a poor run of form from the champs given their run of injuries, and at home you’d pick them nearly every time (pending lineups). We can’t help but think they have a point to prove, and with the return of Love and Korver imminent, the spark may come soon.

That line’s a little large at -7.5 however with the nice Utah road record. Keep this one far from your wallets.

Best Bet: Nope.

09.03.15 – Toronto Raptors 104 @ Oklahoma City Thunder 108
05.11.14 – Oklahoma City Thunder 88 @ Toronto Raptors 100

Picks –

Both are 6-4 over their last 10, with OKC in the middle of a 3-game streak, including wins over the Jazz and Spurs.

Westbrook now has 33 triple doubles for the season (Jordan had 28 for his career) and with the help of Gibson on the boards, the wins are coming just a tad easier, but the trend lies for home team.

Carroll may return for the Raptors, and with a nice home record, well take the Canadians.

Best Bet: Toronto WIN @1.72 (-137)

Feeling Lucky: Toronto -2.0 @1.91 (-110)

09.02.15 – Atlanta Hawks 88 @ Memphis Grizzlies 94
08.01.15 – Memphis Grizzlies 86 @ Atlanta Hawks 96

Picks –

Atlanta have split their last 10, the Grizzlies 4-6.

Atlanta has won the last 4 in this matchup, with 2 of those coming in Memphis.

Memphis are just 1 game out of 6th spot, which would allow them to avoid a first-round series against both Golden State and San Antonio. However, Atlanta with a couple of days rest at home will get over the line.

Keep getting them cheques Vince (28 mins per night on the regular at 4o years old).

20.02.16 – New York Knicks 98 @ Brooklyn Nets 109

Picks –

The Knicks haven’t lost at MSG against the Nets since April 2015. However, less than a week ago, the Nets got over the line against their rival breaking their home court drought. The Knicks were still in the contest with a few minutes left, even after the Nets drained 14 from 20 three pointers in the first half. Also, Porzingis is out.

Best Bet: New York WIN @1.59 (-169)

Picks –

The Clippers crapped the bed last night at home where all-star PG Chris Paul scored only 6 points where he saw his team go down to the Bucks. Coach Rivers has already thrown the towel in for tonight’s game by resting Jordan and Griffin. Seems like they have given up on the 4th seed.

Picks –

The Warriors got out of jail against the 76ers at home and have another lowly East team tonight. Since the Durant injury, the average combined score for Warriors games is 205 points.

Best Bet: Too Short
