See the most recent of The Midfield’s NBA daily picks

7 games today. Yesterday the Warriors made it 15-0, and look set to take it to 16 against the Lakers at home in a day’s time. At $4.50 to break the Bulls season wins record, I say jump on this quick, if even just to enjoy the ride a little more.

But let’s have a look at today’s NBA daily picks below…

10 Charlotte 102.8 99.5 +3.3
23 Sacramento 103.2 106.9 -3.7

 

Sacramento seem to play well against the Hornets. Last time around Boogie (20 points & 14 rebounds) out-muscled Al Jefferson (9 points & 6 rebounds) convincingly. With Rudy Gay sitting with a shoulder injury this may reduce the Kings ability to spread the floor, something that the Hornets have been able to do well, averaging 36.7% from long range.

The Best Bet : Sacramento + 5 @1.91. Rondo to continue the triple double form, and we all love some Boogie…WIN

Feeling Lucky : Sacramento WIN @2.55. LOSS (Overtime)

Orlando at Cleveland

4 Cleveland 103.9 96.7 +7.2

Orlando have had some honorable losses this season but at the end of the day, good teams don’t lose when they shouldn’t. Cleveland are at home again where they are yet to lose this season and although Orlando have some fire power to push the injury riddled Cavs, it wont be enough to stop the Kings.

The Best Bet : Cleveland WIN @ 1.22 – Undefeated at home. WIN

Feeling Lucky : Cleveland 1-10 @ 2.50 – Oladipo and the Vuch to keep the Cavs honest. LOSS

14 New York 99 97.9 +1.1

The Knicks have come off some impressive road wins against Oklahoma and Houston where last year both of those games would be over in the 1st. Carmelo is a new man taking on the leadership role and succeeding while I didn’t want to go to open up with this but how good is Porzingis? Those Knicks fans who booed him on draft night should write an apology letter in Latvian if they haven’t already. Miami almost ruined our multi’s the other day with the come back victory against the 76ers. Bosh and Wade will look to stop fellow 2003 draft member’s party.

The Best Bet : Miami WIN @ 1.52 – Miami loves a rival game, they will show up for this. WIN

Feeling Lucky : Miami 1-10 @ 2.40 – Bounce back game for Bosh while NY keep it close. LOSS

29 Milwaukee 96.1 105.2 -9.1

Yesterday against the Wizards was a tough night for the Pistons, especially big man Andre Drummond. “We were ready for him,” Wizards big man Marcin Gortat said. “We all focused on him every time, and we went at him offensively to make him tired.”

He’s gonna be worn, and travelling to Milwaukee where they’ve lost their last three, with a bench that’s struggling to contribute offensively, they won’t have enough in the tank.

The Best Bet : Milwaukee WIN @2.13. WIN

Feeling Lucky : HT/FT – Detroit/Milwaukee @6.65. Once Drummond runs out of steam, the Bucks will edge away. LOSS

Philadelphia at Minnesota

19 Minnesota 101.6 102.8 -1.2

Battle of the future Big Men of the game. Towns vs Okafor, just like College but in front of a home Minnesota crowd and a better supporting cast, not forgetting current Rookie Of The Year Andrew Wiggins, the Wolves should add another win to their promising start. The 76ers did put a scare in all of us tipsters with their performance against the Heat on the weekend but the Wolves are one step ahead in development and talent.

The Best Bet : Minnesota WIN @ 1.30 – Rubio, Wiggins, K-Mart and Towns should be too strong. WIN

Feeling Lucky : Minnesota +11 @ 2.45 – 76ers to throw the towel in early. WIN

Phoenix at San Antonio

7 Phoenix 105.8 101 +4.8

Phoenix end their road trip in Texas against the 2nd seeded Spurs who have been getting the job done but haven’t set the world alight. Maybe they are just going under the radar and letting all the attention go to the Warriors. New Recruit LaMarcus Aldridge is in doubt but I think the fatigue will set in for the Suns after a tough loss to the Pelicans last night.

The Best Bet : San Antonio WIN @ 1.22. Kawhi and co will have too many answers on both ends. WIN

Feeling Lucky : San Antonio +11 @ 2.15. Fresh Spurs to blow out the fatigued Suns in the last. WIN

11 Utah 95.1 92.4 +2.7

Russell Westbrook has had to shoulder the load with Durant on the sidelines while putting up Kobe like shot attempts with 24 + per game. Playing away against a Jazz team who’s big strength has been their defense, will be too much for OKC, who have dropped 3 out of their last 4 on the road, and will do so again in the bible belt.

Utah have had 2 extra day’s rest, and are back at home for 10 of their next 14 games.

The Best Bet : Utah WIN @1.64. LOSS

Feeling Lucky : Utah Jazz to win & Under 196.5 points @3.04. LOSS
