NBA Predictions and Picks for Tonight 29/11

 

This post is old, click here to see the latest NBA predictions and picks.

Ohhhhhh- 18. The other streak!

Philadelphia are headed for 0-18, the other streak of the season. They should be thanking the Warriors for this, as the 18-0 streak of Golden State is the only reason we aren’t focusing on just how terrible they are.

Points +/- Rank

RK TEAM OWN OPP DIFF
28 Milwaukee 97.9 106.1 -8.2
9 Charlotte 103.4 99.8 +3.6

The Hornets will be without big men Cody Zeller (shoulder ) and Frank Kaminsky (back). Milwaukee has been outscored last quarter for 7  games straight by an average of 8 points. Away against the Hornets who have won 7 of the last 10, and a record of 7-2 at home, they will get the job done. Jason Kidd returns after a suspension for slapping the ball out of a refs hand. Yep.

The Best Pick: Charlotte WIN @1.37.

Feeling Lucky : Charlott 1-5 @4.85. Should be close.

Minnesota at LA Clippers

17 Minnesota 101.3 101.1 +0.2
15 LA Clippers 103.3 102.8 +0.5

The Clippers have been disappointing to say the least. With the talent on their roster, they should be much better than the 8-8 record, including only 3 wins of the last 10 games. DeAndre Jordan is averaging 13.5 points and 18.0 boards in the last 4 against the Twolves, and rebounding could be the key in this match up. With Pekovic out with an achilles, and Rubio in and out of the lineup, it’s been up to Andrew Wiggins, 21.8ppg,  to try and bring home the bacon on a nightly basis.

The Best Bet : Under 206.0 points @1.91. Rarely are the games going over 200 for either team.

Feeling Lucky : Cleveland 1-10 @ 2.59 – Cavs had a tough one last night. Brooklyn could sneak up.

27 Brooklyn 96.3 103.8 -7.5

Deeeeeetroooit Basssketballll.Here’s two teams that have won only 3 of their last 10 outings. The Pistons rely almost solely on rebounding, and are one of the worst offensive teams the league. Basically if they aren’t winning the +/- on the boards, they’re going to lose. Brooklyn are coming off a valiant 88-90 loss away against the Cavs, and are continually in the game, without finding the W.

“It’s definitely frustrating for everybody in this locker room, because we work hard time and time again and we know we can put ourselves in position to be in the ball game or to win and we are coming up short.” said Joe Johnson.

The Best Bet : Detroit WIN @1.50.

Feeling Lucky : Nope.

Points +/- Rank

RK TEAM OWN OPP DIFF
6 Boston 102.5 96.9 +5.6
13 Orlando 101.4 100.6 +0.8

This is one of those games that could be a lip of the coin.  Orlando has lost 9 straight in Boston, but has won the past 3 at home in the head to head. We’ve been on board the Celtics for little while now, but can’t see them getting over Orlando in this one, at least until Marcus Smart suits up.

The Best Bet : Orlando WIN 1.99. With little confidence.

Feeling Lucky : 100% no.

Phoenix at Toronto

13 Phoenix 106.2 105.4 +0.8
8 Toronto 100.1 95.8 +4.3

Both teams are building good form but in opposite directions. Toronto are coming off a buzzer beating win against Washington while the Suns just got destroyed by the Warriors. Both backcourts will run the flow of this game, deciding factors will be the Raptor’s legs and Phoenix going to war with no Chandler. The form team should win but will be close, closer than my Suns v Warriors prediction.

The Best Bet : Toronto WIN @ 1.48

Feeling Lucky : Toronto 1-10 @ 2.28

Philadelphia at Memphis

30 Philadelphia 91.2 103.5 -12.3
21 Memphis 96.5 100.4 -3.9

We should cut and paste all previous write ups regarding the 76ers as the outcome is the same. This time it’s against Memphis where the Grizzlies have been without Z-Bo are slightly flying under the radar. Okafor could face a league suspension after his fist connected with a person’s jaw while Noel is under an injury cloud. Could get messy in Memphis.

The Best Bet : Memphis WIN @ 1.14

Feeling Lucky : Memphis -11.5 @ 1.91

25 Houston 100.8 107.3 -6.5

The Knicks haven’t won since defeating the Rockets away a week ago and will look to do the same tonight. Playing the square offense, Melo will need his shooting sleeve locked and loaded. Houston couldn’t get any worse, or could they? They just got over the line against the 76ers…. Yes the 76ers where Harden had to put up 50. Could Houston look to get some revenge against NY or can the Knicks sweep the series?

The Best Bet : Flip A Coin

Feeling Lucky : Harden First Basket @ 4.55

29 LA Lakers 96.7 105.9 -9.2

Kobe once again played 34 mins in a game where there was no need to. There was no crunch time, no come back, just a terrible Lakers side going through the motions, although, D’Angelo Russell got some meaningful game time and needs some Rookie love. The Pacers are sitting pretty in 2nd place in the East. PG13 is coming to Hollywood but expect a bloodbath at Staples, leave the kids at home.

The Best Bet : Indiana WIN @ 1.20

Feeling Lucky : Indiana +11 @ 2.09
