OPPOSITE PICKS: 199-211-2 = -3,090
WASHINGTON -8 vs. San Antonio
Anytime I can go against the Spurs at home and lay less than double digit points I’m taking it. Wiz stink, no two ways about that. BUT they are still in the playoff hunt in the East. Spurs are going for the worst record sweepstakes.
OPPOSITE PICK: SAN ANTONIO +8
TORONTO -14.5 vs. Detroit
Raptors lost their last game to Indiana at home. They only lost by four, but that’s as bad a performance as you can come up with this time of year. You can’t lose to Indiana at home in March. They will respond and pound the hapless Tigers/Lions/Pistons who have lost 18 of 20 inc: four in a row.
OPPOSITE PICK: DETROIT +14.5
MEMPHIS -12.5 vs. Houston
Second of back to back games between the Grizzlies and Rockets in Memphis. Houston hung tough on Wednesday losing by single digits. That won’t happen again as Memphis will be ready to play. Ja Morant figures to get the start after coming off the bench on Wednesday. Griz by 14+.
OPPOSITE PICK: HOUSTON +12.5
GOLDEN ST. -5.5 vs Philadelphia
Competition steps up, but no matter…Golden St. is at home so we play them. Warriors are consistent if anything else. Bet on them at home. Bet against them on the road…no matter who they are playing.
OPPOSITE PICK: PHILADELPHIA +5.5
PORTLAND +2.5 vs. Chicago
Jailblazers are coming off a nice win at Utah. Bulls are coming off an ugly performance at home against the 76ers. We’ll grab Portland which is desperate for a win…as is Chicago. But the Bulls are just 14-21 on the road.
OPPOSITE PICK: CHICAGO -2.5
LA LAKERS -5.5 vs. OKC
I don’t like betting against OKC…but this is their 3rd game in four nights…albeit all in LA. But this is against the Lakers who were off last night. That’s a big advantage for LA which is actually playing well winning 6 of their last 9 including two in a row.
OPPOSITE PICK: OKC +5.5
INDIANA +12.5 @ Boston
Try figuring out the Pacers who have recent road wins at Milwaukee & Toronto but road loses @ Charlotte, Detroit & Charlotte over the last two weeks. Thats tough to figure out. This is the mighty Celtics so let’s follow the illogical NBA logic…Pacers cover.
OPPOSITE PICK: BOSTON -12.5
ORLANDO +3.5 vs. New York We are doing what the Knicks do best…and that’s do what they did the game before-Lose. We’ve told you this before. They are 35-14 after last night’s game. Don’t make this stuff harder than it has to be.
OPPOSITE PICK: NEW YORK -3.5 = LOSE
BROOKLYN +4 vs. Cleveland
Cavs beat the Nets on Tuesday in Brooklyn. I don’t think they are winning back to back games against the Nets. Cavs are still an under .500 road team while the Nets are 19-15 at home. OPPOSITE PICK: CLEVELAND -4
NEW ORLEANS -7 vs. Charlotte
Hornets are basically eliminated from playoff contention, while the Pelicans are holding on for dear life in the Western Conference. They can’t afford to lose against cupcake competition like Charlotte. Pels are a solid 23-13 SU & 20-16 ATS at home.
OPPOSITE PICK: CHARLOTTE +7
OKC +3 @ LA Clippers
Battle of two wits…go with OKC which has THE best ATS records in the NBA at 43-26-1. But I also like going with teams that just lost their star player as the Clips did with Paul George. George is out 2-3 weeks with his latest injury. I’m going OKC because the Clippers never won a big game in their franchise history.
OPPOSITE PICK: LA CLIPPERS -3
MINNESOTA WILD -160 @ Philadelphia
Wild is on fire…they are 13-4 their last 17 games including 7-2 on the road during this stretch. Flyers are just the opposite…4-13 including 3-6 at home. This is just as much a pro Wild play as it is an anti Flyers play.
OPPOSITE PICK: PHILADELPHIA FLYERS +140 = WIN
TAMPA BAY -145 @ Ottawa
Lightning have lost two in a row so you know we are going to get their “A” game tonight as nobody wants to lost three in a row. That spells trouble for the Senators who have lost 6 of 7 to fall out of the playoff picture. No way do the Lightning lose.
OPPOSITE PICK: OTTAWA SENATORS +125 = WIN
KANSAS ST. +1.5 vs. Michigan St.
The mediocre at best Spartans are favorites over Kansas St. Wow, the BIV must be going bonkers. Somehow Michigan St. won their first two games….but that streak ends here. Best play on the board as Kansas St. wins by double digits.
OPPOSITE PICK: MICHIGAN ST. -1.5 = LOSE
Wednesday: 3-4 = -140
