The Say:

Anthony Davis (23.4 ppg, 2.7 bpg, 10.8 rpg) plays in his first Christmas day game, while Dwayne Wade plays in his 10th with a record of 9-1. So what does that mean betting wise? Not a lot…

Both teams are 5 from the last 10, with the Pelicans looking to make it 3 straight. We don’t think that will happen, and we’ll lean towards the Heat for this one, covering the line in the process.

Best Bet: Heat -5.5 @1.91.

The Say:

Which Bulls team will show up tonight? Defense Bulls or Offense Bulls? Because it’s rarely both.

Always the parlay killer, Chicago’s results are pretty much mirrored by the inconsistency of their on floor “leader” Derrick Rose (Jimmy Butler would say otherwise).

Derrick Rose (13.5 ppg, 5.4 apg, 3.3 rpg) is not the same player that he was, and as we watch him play on and off each night, so we watch the Bulls do the same.

The Thunder are beginning a 4 game home stand and are looking to make this win their 4th straight W. Having won 9 of the last 10, and playing the much more consistent ball, we’ll give this to the Thunder with confidence.

The Bulls will be without center Joakim Noah  (4.5 ppg, 8.8rpg) with a sprained shoulder, but even with this loss of rebounding, still expect some stinking shot selection from the Bulls.

Best Bet: Bulls +13.5 @1.42

The Say:

In one of the most anticipated Christmas games in recent years, the Cavs travel to Oracle Arena, for the first time since game 5 of last years NBA Finals.

“The memories will come back as soon as we walk into the building, but also understand it’s one of 82 and I’m not going to put everything into this game,” said James 926..4 ppg, 6.3 apg, 7.6 rpg.

The Cavs are healthy for the first time in a long time, and it’s the Warriors this time who are a little shorthanded, with forward Harrison Barnes (13.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg) sidelined with a sprained ankle.

Can’t help but feel that the Warriors will push that little bit harder for the W here, not just because of Lebron’s comments, but because they just have that hunger, every, single, game.

Best Bet: Over 209.5.

The Say:

This is the first time of the season these two Texas inhabitants have met and by the way of the likely Standings, they could meet again in the post season.

The Spurs have been basically the page 2 story of this year with the Warriors front and square everywhere so the casual fan has missed just how dominating they have become. Holding the best defensive rating for the league, the Spurs will get to test their resolve against a very offensive driven Rockets. Notforgetting, Kawhi’s game is on another planet a few parsecs from Curry. He or Green are looking forward to making Harden’s night no so memorable. Will the Rockets inject T.Jones to counter LaMarcus and Duncan or is Capella going to be handed a good lesson in the fundamentals?

If defense win Championships, this game is already decided. Go Spurs Go.

Best Bet: San Antonio -5.5 @1.71

The Say:

The Battle of Los Angeles

Rounding out the Christmas festivities is LA vs LA and it will just about be all over by the 1st break…. commercial break.

The Clippers really go out of their way during these rival games to make Lakers suffer. Lets be honest, the Lakers are no good, wait, they are terrible and there is nothing from cool jerseys and a home crowd with A listers that are going to save them tonight. At all positions, the Clips have all the answers. JJ will be running, CP3 will be dishing and DeAndre will be barking. Kobe will have a few moments, being its his 16th Christmas Day game but that’s about it. Don’t think there will be smiles tonight.
