having trouble sleeping so i'm gonna post my picks early
1-1 to start the week and 15-4 overall in real money picks!
i'm really excited for tomorrow's game because as mentioned on my post yesterday i'm 6 and 0 when Brooklyn and New York plays on the same day and twice hit trebles with them, so basically these teams have been money for me...
a very good road team(3-1) against a mediocre team at home NO(2-3). New York won their last game after suffering their first loss at Memphis last Friday and will try to build another winning streak while NO is on a funk right now losing it's last three. NO will make it interesting but NY will win and cover.
Prediction: NY 104-91
LAL has been on a tear lately winning 4 of their last 5 games after starting the year 1-4, they dismantled their last two opponents by an average margin of 11.5 points. HOT right? definitely, but no team has been hotter that the Nets right now winning their last 5 games (memphis lost today ending their 8 game winning streak). I think Lakers will pull it off but can't cover, there might also be a potential steal win here by Brooklyn.
Prediction: LAL 103 - 100
3 team trebles
tor/phi over 182
ny/no over 189.5
brk/lal under 208.5 (way too high, i honestly think the lakers can't score 110 plus pts against the nets) fact: nets average pts allowed this season is 92.5
3 game lineup yesterday...3 game sweep!!!
10-1 overall record in real money picks...clicking on all cylinders right now!
here are my plays for today's busy NBA Friday...
i was surprised when i first saw that they are making the Pacers as favorites in this one...fishy? Maybe. but i'm definitely choosing the Mavs here against a team that is playing so badly right now. C'mon 32% and 38% fg pct in the last 2 games??? that's beyond bad.. Unless Hibby and George step up today...they don't stand a chance.
Almost forgot Kaman strong showing and Marion's availability makes it more appealing riding with them.
Prediction: Dal 103 -92
Just because you dismantled the Sixers(on a bad shooting night) and you're playing at home makes you a favorite already? It's just one win and Detroit is 1-8. Sure, the Magic has lost 5 consecutive games, but they lost to .500 or better teams (bulls, wolves, nets(2), knicks). They are due for a win here and i'm taking my chances with them.
Prediction: Orl 90 - 84
NY/MEM over 191
i honestly think this will be NY first loss this season but i'm not confident Memphis will cover so i'm gonna pass on ATS but will take the over 191. Both teams can easily hit the hundred mark. Memphis 101.5 ppg, NY 103.5 ppg... do the math =)
3 team treble:
dal/ind under 184
orl/det under 183
okc/no over 187
(houston we have a problem...)
a lost by houston yesterday made my record 3-1 for the day and 7-1 overall in real money picks...can i say on a roll?
not bad at all...still won 1062php yesterday and a total of 6242php in 2 days =)
tough games for today as six playoff teams battle it out... here's my plays for later!
NY +5 (3500php)
San Antonio is playing great at home as always(even on the road they're good) but a plus 5 to the only unbeaten team in the league is a huge boost.i thinkthat SA will win this game but it will be so close that they won't be able to cover, NY also has the potential to steal this one.
Prediction: SA 95 - NY 92
BRK -3 (1000)
Regardless of whether Rondo(sprained ankle) will play or not, i'm giving the edge to the Nets because first, they're playing at home. Second, Boston is playing their third game in 5 nights so they might be pretty tired and lastly i haven't lost with the Nets this season so i'll continue rolling with them!
3 team treble (500)
BRK - 3
MIA +3.5 (i dont think i'll play them later simply because i'm not that confident yet with how they're playing on the road)
BOS/BRK - under 191.5
NY/SA - over 192
MIA/DEN - history of these two teams saying it will go over 202 but my gutfeel it wil be under this time around =)
here's my picks for tomorrow's 13 game NBA Friday...
Good Luck Y'all!
