Decent 2-1 night last night, almost 3-0 but Spurs covered late. I hate betting against teams like the Spurs just because they are the exception to the rule, but every now and then you have to learn the lesson again. Here’s my NBA picks for tonight, 1/13/16.

Hawks @ Hornets

Hornets +2.5
Charlotte on a 7 game losing skid, and the 3rd ranked Atlanta have won their last 2. Charlotte however is pretty good at home (13-7) while terrible away. Public 80/20 on Hawks. Charlotte by 5.

Seahawks @ Panthers

Seahawks +3
Here is where we find out if Carolina is the real deal, which it appears to me that they are. Seattle is clicking at the right time, and Russell Wilson is playing like the champion he is. But even with this being the case, if Carolina is the powerhouse that they appear to be, then they should be bigger favorites than by 3 points, plain and simple. The line is way too low, and the public is on Carolina 71% at the moment. Vegas clearly thinks Seattle has the edge here, which is why I think they’re the best play this weekend.

Make sure to line shop this one no matter which way you bet, and try to find that huge 1/2 point difference.

Here are my NBA picks for tonight, 1/8/16.

Pacers @ Pelicans

Pelicans +2
Line should be +4, and the money is heavy on Indiana (77%). I think it’s a good spot to fade the public. Pacers are really bad away so far this year as well.

Heat @ Suns

Suns +5
Phoenix is an atrocious away team but they are surprisingly tough at home and vs good teams. They happen to match up pretty well vs the Heat as well, which is why this line is +5 and not +8 (especially with Bledsoe out). Suns win this one outright.

Here are my free NBA picks for tonight, 1/5/16. Currently on a 3 game win streak, I actually like a few games tonight for the first time in a while. Simply put, all three picks fit the 5 indicators that I generally wait for.

Pacers @ Magic

Magic +1

Raptors @ Nets

Nets +7

Clippers @ Blazers

Blazers +4

NBA: Miami Heat at Philadelphia 76ers

NBA Picks 1/4/16 – Tonight’s Bets

NBA: Miami Heat at Philadelphia 76ers

Timberwolves @ 76ers

76ers +5.5
These two teams met in Minnesota earlier in the season and T-Wolves won by 5 points. Wolves are now away, and not playing well. Conversely the Sixers have won 2 of their last 5, and are playing at home after two days rest. Public almost 80% at time of this post on the Wolves.

Clippers @ Pelicans

Pelicans -3
I like the Pelicans tonight as they are already a good home team that can get up vs the best, but with Griffin still out the Clippers should be out of rythym for at least a few more games. Barring a huge game from Paul then New Orleans controls this game start to finish, and Anthony Davis puts on a big New Year’s performance.

Pelicans are 3-15 away but 7-6 at home, and public on Clip 68% is always a plus.

Cardinals @ Eagles

Eagles +4

Eagles playing well, even beating the Pats recently. The line a bit low, Zona traveling cross country in a tough stadium, and the public 76% on the favorite. Philadelphia controls this game from the start and wins outright.

 

Browns @ Seahawks

Over 43

Seahawks beginning to roll at the right time, and I don’t see them slowing down today. 35-13 final in this one.

 

Broncos @ Steelers

Broncos +7

This line opened slightly higher than I thought it would, but I still like Denver here as the best defense in the league getting a touchdown vs a slightly inconsistent and injury riddled Steelers team. I think Pitt stalls out much like they did vs the tough Bengals defense a bit earlier in the year.

NBA Bets – Friday 12/18 Picks

I went 1-1 last night, continuing my break even streak over the last couple weeks of NBA after a hot start.

Knicks @ 76ers

76ers +6.5
This seems like a fishy line to me and a bit of a Vegas knows. Public over 75% on NYK, I’m going to take the sixers with the points tonight.
