NBA Parlay Picks for Tonight 2/12

This post is old, check out the latest NBA picks and parlays.

….and the beat goes on, still.

20-ohhhhhh? Steph just keeps dancing.

“The Other Streak” was broken last night, as the 76ers finally got over the hump to defeat the Lakers.

Thus ends the longest losing streak in US professional sports history (the 76ers were 0-28 if we carried on from last season).

Now we can concentrate on the important things. Like what be a painfully long farewell tour for Kobe, and the Warriors hitting up 20-0.

17 Detroit 96.6 96.6 0

Beyond Kobe (20 points) hitting 3  straight from long range early in the first, there wasn’t a whole lot to come out of the night for the Lakers. Another missed opportunity, after leading by 8 at half-time, a loss came to the tune of 103-98. But the farewell tour will continue, hopefully with  bit to celebrate along the way other than a winless retirement tour.

The Wizards are winning and losing in patches, WLLLLWWWLL from their last 10 games. Wall is averaging 24.2 ppg while shooting 50.0%.

The Lakers will lose their 8th straight here.

The Best Bet : Washington -5.5 @1.42.

Feeling Lucky : Washington -11.5 @2.13.

17 Detroit 96.6 96.6 0

The Pistons are 9-9, which is encouraging given the fact that one of their stars has been sidelined so far this season. Brandon Jennings is scheduled to return this month after suffering a torn achilles last season. Both teams have won only 4 of the last 10, but given the fact that it’s back in Detroit, and the Pistons have had the days break, we’ll give them the nod, just.

The Best Bet : Detroit WIN @1.57.

Feeling Lucky : Nope.

Last night the 76ers broke “The Other Streak”, as they ended their 0-18 winless season record (not counting the 0-28 continued from last season, the longest in US professional sports history). “Finally,” said forward Nerlens Noel…Probably all that needed to be said.

Many NBA careers have come and gone during that losing streak.

It was a strange night, the first game since Kobe formerly announced it was his last season, and probably the first night in world sport where a team that was 0-18 were declared favourites for the win. The only hope now is that the Lakers don’t hit their own similar losing streak. It’s already hard enough watching Kobe and the Lakers as it is.

Star rookies Jahlil Okafor (17.2 ppg, 8.1 rpg) and Kristaps Porzingis (13.7 ppg, 9.3 rpg) have their debut encounter. Porzingas has stepped it up even a little more over his last 5 games, averaging 17.0 points and 11.6 boards.

“We’re going to get greedy,” said 76ers coach Brett Brown.”We want a little bit more.”
We love their moxy, but away against the Knicks who’ve had an extra 2 days rest, we’ll give it to the Knicks on this rare occasion.

The Best Bet : NY WIN @1.21.

Feeling Lucky : Philadelphia +9 @1.91

Toronto at Atlanta

10 Atlanta 102.4 100.3 +2.1

Toronto are back on the road again to Atlanta. Only playing 6 out of 18 games at home this season, the passports would be all stamped out. This game is a true Eastern Conference showdown, 5th verses 6th, both teams match up well in all positions, although, Toronto without Valanciunas could be the deciding factor. The Hawks are looking a little healthier theses days, but you would have to say the Budenholzer intel on ex-spur Splitter is not going to plan. Will be a close encounter, home side with the edge.

The Best Bet : Atlanta WIN @ 1.64 – Impressive against the Thunder, should keep the rhythm going.

Feeling Lucky : Atlanta 1-10 @ 2.45 – Atlanta like it tight against other East rivals.

Denver at Chicago

15 Chicago 98.9 98.3 +0.6

The Bulls have a little bit of head wobble about them with the gutsy win against the Spurs at home. The defense of the old Thibs days came out and reminded us that Chicago can match it with the best, when they want to. Can’t say much about Denver who have only won 1 out of the last 9. its hard to believe they started the season 4-0, with one of those wins was against Chicago at home. Even if the mediocre Bulls come out, it will be enough to stop the Nuggets…… we hope…..

The Best Bet : Chicago WIN @ 1.16 – Rose was missing and Jimmy Butler had a shocker last time they met.

Feeling Lucky : Chicago 1-10 @ 2.61 – which version of the Bulls will come out, sneaky danger game.

I think its safe to say we have no idea where to go with this game. Tyreke is back for the Pelicans, and they are playing better basketball while they try to resuscitate their season. Our biggest road block is the opposition. Houston just aren’t gettin’ it done. From an on-court and tipping point of view, they stink! Latest news is they are trying to shop Ty Lawson around, that was hardly a match made in heaven. Coach is gone, Clint Capela puts up more shots than Dwight, its like the team went in a time machine to the future to see when they will win their next ring, and have returned to an alternate present…. where they don’t play defense. Stay away.

The Best Bet : No one needs the stress, scroll down.

Feeling Lucky : Anthony Davis First Basket @ 5.05 – in your face Dwight.

This could turn out as a bit of a lesson for the Bucks. Not only are they playing the Spurs away, they are playing a Spurs team on their home court after a loss. Pop don’t like losses. Expect a swift kill by the Spurs, the Deer wont be feared.

Best Bet : San Antonio/San Antonio HT/FT @ 1.26

Feeling Lucky : San Antonio +11 @ 1.62

13 LA Clippers 103.4 101.7 1.7

Another test for the Clippers at home. Indiana are one of the form sides of the league with PG13 bringing LeBron-like performances every game. Averaging 27.2 ppg, if it wasn’t for the dominance of Steph Curry, George would be in MVP conversations. Los Angeles have won 3 in a row to some of the lower ranked teams in the West but could have to face the Pacers without Chris Paul who is still under an injury cloud. Indiana have had a bit of an extended stay in Hollywood after facing the Lakers two days ago, hopefully they didn’t champagne and campaign with Jalen.

Best Bet : Indiana +3.5 @1.91

Feeling Lucky : Indiana WIN @2.33
