Today’s NBA Predictions – 14/12

This is an old entry, view the latest NBA betting tips here.

Another tough day to predict with some tight contests to be played. Still able to find some value but definitely a day for the handicap markets. Game of the day would have to be between the Pacers at Raptors. Both teams have shown they can match it with the best (Golden State) so expect a close one. It is also the game we feel the bookies have got wrong with Indy starting as favs. Good Luck.

The SayomgPG

If this was at home, the Raptors would be a monty as favourites. They have beaten the Cavs and Spurs both at home and are going in as under dogs against the Pacers away. Going for 5 in a row against an Indy team who are 7 and 3 at home though, could be a challenge. The line here for Toronto is the best bet.

The Say

The Magic were embarrassed last outing against the Cavs at home with a 35 point defeat and would be keen to make amends in Brooklyn. The Nets aren’t exactly a walkover at home either with 6 of their 7 wins coming at the Barclays Centre. This is no where near a lock for Orlando with an upset on the cards

Last Time Around

The Say

Detroit have got a knack for knocking of quality teams on their home court with upsets against the Cavs, Pacers and Bulls, playing at Auburn Hills is not an easy task these days. The Clippers are on the final game of their road trip and will look to take one more victory before heading back home. Eventhough when I tip against the Pistons at home I generally lose, however, the Clippers will do enough to for a close win. Obviously with no ejections.

Brandon Jennings is close to a return from a torn achilles.

The Say

The Hawks have had it tough the last two games coming up against the Thunder and Spurs so a home games to a weary Heat side is just what the doctor ordered. Both teams you would say have under achieved based on offseason moves and expectations. Going for the home side here and Miami aren’t the best travellers.

The Say

Even without Beal the Wizards were able to shock the Mavs in Dallas with a superhuman performance by Otto Porter Jr. Wall was able to do his usual thing and may have a chance against the Grizzlies. Memphis just fell short to the Heat yesterday with Randolph starting on the pine to give the team more speed which did work as they had the lead at the half. Tony Allen was a late change and if he misses tonight, the game will be closer. Speed does kill Memphis, could be an upset.

The Say

The Mavs are having a little trouble at home, with two straight losses, (Washington 114-111, Atlanta 95-98). Even a triple double from Raymond Felton (10 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists), the most out of shape in-shape player on the court couldn’t pull them across the line against the Wizards.

Nowitzki has been ice cold lately, and is doing his best not to catch Shaq at 6th on the all-time scoring list on 28,596 points. With  days rest, and another crack at home, we’ll give it to Dallas, good teams and good players don’t let things slide for too long, and they’ll get the W here, just.

The Say

At home, with a days rest, there is just no reason to think that a Spurs W will be stopped. Going for 22 straight at home, and even though the Jazz have won 2 of the last 3 in the series, they wont win this one, but may just cover the line.

The Say

The Rockets have lost twice to the Nuggets this season already which surely did cost us all. Will we forgive Harden and Howard? That was the old Rockets last lost, we have the new look Rockets now who have been on a mini run winning 7-3 in the last 10.

Last Time Out

The Say

The Trailblazers have been dominant in this series in recent times, but the Blazers look a little different this year, perhaps less convincing, with a little less talent. They can thank head management for that.

Two stars of the 2012 draft meet again, with Anthony Davis (23.4 ppg, 10.8 rpg) and Damian Lillard (24.4 ppg, 6.9 apg,).

The Pelicans schedule has been a little easier over the last couple of weeks, and although we won’t go for the win, we will bet on them covering the -8 line.
