Today’s NBA Picks and Parlays 20/11

View the latest NBA Picks and Parlays.

Full schedule of 11 NBA games today. The Warriors came back last night, scoring 39 points in the last quarter to just get over the Clippers 124-117 to show just how much heart they have. Surely after that there is no doubt they are the favorites for the NBA Championship. They have just, as I type, come to level favorite with the Cavaliers at $3.75.

The Best Bet : Charlotte/Charlotte @1.38. Philly’s overall losing streak is at 22. It’d be a shock if they managed to win a half.

Brooklyn at Boston

4 Boston 102.5 96.8 +5.7

The Best Bet : Boston/Boston @1.48. The Celtics were gathering momentum with 3 impressive wins in a row,
before losing to Dallas at home (giving up an 18 point lead in the process). Brooklyn is just thankful that they have the 76ers in their division. Joe Johnson, keep gettin’ them cheques! ($24,894,863 this season)

Feeling Lucky : Boston by 6-10 @4.30.

Houston at Memphis

26 Memphis 95.8 102.2 -6.4

The Best Bet : Houston +10.5 @1.42. Memphis rarely win big jb_bickerstaff_050110(margin of 14 vs Sacramento their biggest this year).  Houston finally showed some heart with an overtime victory against Portland under new coach J.B. Bickerstaff. 

Feeling Lucky : Houston are too inconsistent at this early stage, just sit back and be entertained by James Harden’s shot selection.

Detroit at Minnesota

19 Minnesota 102.9 103.3 -0.4

The Best Bet : Detroit WIN @1.87. The Pistons started the season like a house on fire but have since lost 4 out of the last 5. Andre Drummond is averaging 18.9 rebounds per game for the Pistons, 6 ahead of the next best. With Nikola Pekovic still sidelined, he may break the all time NBA rebounds record of 55.

Feeling Lucky : First Basket / Winner – Andre Drummond / Detroit. If the first shot is off from Detroit, count on the offensive put back.

San Antonio at New Orleans

29 New Orleans 100.3 109.9 -9.6

 

The Best Bet : Spurs -8 @1.91. The Pelicans are pretty much as bad as it gets at 1-11. The season point difference between the two is above the 20.4, and this is good enough reason to go above the -8 line for the Spurs. Anthony Davis is averaging 22.7 ppg and 8.4 rpg, but is questionable with a shoulder.

Feeling Lucky : We will stick with the Best Bet.

New York at Oklahoma

16 New York 98.8 98.2 +0.6

The Best Bet : Oklahoma WIN @1.31. The Thunder will be without Durant for one more game, but there record at home against the Knicks and Westbrook’s form lately will more than makeup for that.

Feeling Lucky : We trust Westbrook, but not enough for the -7 line.
