Hey Marvin I'm a first time poster in your thread, I've been lurking for awhile now and feel that I now have the discipline to enter your contest. I hope you continue your work in helping others to learn and improve in capping.

For today my picks are:

BOS Celtics -2
NY Knicks/BOS Celtics over
DAL Mavericks -1

The celtics have lost their last 4 games, they're due for a win and there isn't a better place than at home.

Dallas is still on the hunt for a playoff spot, and I feel that they will turn up for this game and take advantage of a hurt clippers team.

BOL everyone !

Format the middle pick to proper format- can't do it for you without the actual line.

Over ????? BOS Celtics - NY Knicks

BOS Celtics -2

 

DAL Mavericks -1

 

Both of these HOME teams need this win bad... Both of the AWAY teams just want to finish out the season without losing all momentum leading in to the playoffs.  I believe that teams that have clinched need something to play for.  Playing at Home and winning will give the fans something to believe in come playoff time.  Other than the Heat, a clinched team has nothing to play for other than to not lose the edge.

 

I like the over in Boston because I think as teams start to clinch (a la Knicks here), Playoff Implication Under watch has gone over.  I think the lack of KG speeds up the pace a little for the Celtics and takes away a defensive threat to the Knicks.

PHIXER Well said man . We all have a lot of respect for Mavin here so any trolling efforts are a waste of time... Though it always is worth an epic laugh when Mavin tells those fools off.

Anyhow, I'm seeing A LOT of people on Dallas tonight... I'm figuring its due to the big reverse line movement... But lets not all forget the huge reverse line movement in the Minnesota game... The better team prevailed.

Clippers might not be in a very dire position... But this is a TNT game... Clippers ARE PRIME TIME... Thats what these guys live for.. The big sensational plays. Extremely talented athletes/entertainers.

I'm not sold on the Mavericks and I can't see the Clippers just rolling over for this one.. I guess they have a game tomorrow in which they'll have to travel to. But It's not like they'd overlook this prime time match tonight for a game against the Hornets...

Phixer, Mavin, anyone else have any thoughts on this? I'm sort of torn on this one.

I'm a noobie here but been following this thread for some time

Heat_In_4 (0-0)

Dallas Mavericks PK

OVER 202.5 Dallas Mavericks - LA Clippers

Playoff atmosphere and a must win for the Mavericks. Mavs are averaging 104.4 ppg in March and the Clips are always ready for a shootout. Cliff Paul isn't 100% but IMO will play a nationally televised game...

-Hope my formatting is correct

Gambling 101: A must win for a team doesn't mean jack... How many times has there been a "must win" when the team flat out loses... Happens all the time... it's what separates the men from the boys.

And how many big leads has Dallas blown this year already?

They have one of the worst defenses going up against one of the best...

I'm struggling to see the Dallas angle here... The only reason I can see is the Reverse line movement.. Is that what everyones basing their play on?

Apparently (from reading this thread) The people are only going on Dallas because its a "must win" for them... And the line movement of course...

So lets face it, everyones ponying up their money cause of the line movement. Is there any actual head to head reason why anyone would prefer Dallas in this matchup? Lets get down to the core of this guys

I've seen an odd amount of reverse line movements turn out to backfire in the past month or so. I almost think its Vegas doing it to throw people off due to everyone being aware of RLM now with the internet... Before the days of the internet a lot of people were unaware and would always take the bait

Sure Dallas has been hot... But look at who they're winning against... Lets focus on the Dallas' last few games: They won a very close game against Utah (who has been ICE COLD), They won against an old injured Boston squad(who has been ICE COLD), They lost against a very streaky Brooklyn team by doube digits, They won against the Hawks (who aren't that great), They lost against OKC, Beat the Cavs, Lost against the Spurrs...

They've been playing weak competition... Vegas is using those smoke and mirrors victories to sucker you guys in...

MIN Timberwolves -1

Detroit does not play well vs. west teams as would indicate their record ATS(10-18).Line started at -1.5  detroit at my book and is now at -1 for minnesota.Since Drummond has been out for detroit they have been horrible on defense, while minnesota is no powerhouse I prefer their offense, Pekovic also seems to play well against detroit.

-Timberwolves are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Central

-Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record.

-Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest

-Timberwolves are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss

-Pistons are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win

-Pistons are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win

-Pistons are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. NBA Northwest

Good luck everyone tonight!

NY Knicks +2

Martin has played very well last game, Chandler still out tonight, he'll try to prove his value.
 Garnett out, Lee out, Knicks reach their 5th win streak. 
Boston are unmotivated by all injuries.

I dont focus on trends with all theses injuries.
Just motivation factor//individual skill// team spirit //
And i'm really thinking Knicks are better, despite the road.

MIN Timberwolves +1

Detroit barely squeaked out a win against the worst team in the league in their last game on the road.  And now they are at home where they have one of the worst home records in the NBA.  Minnesota is a vastly improved team with Kirilenko back clogging the paint and Pekovic with some scoring touch down low.  I'm looking for Minnesota to take advantage of an under achieving Detroit team.

Good luck all

If I knew Billups and Paul were playing for sure, I would be siding with the Clippers.  The first few games last time Paul got injured, the Clippers looked lost with Bledsoe at the point.  Good luck with the pick.

I am very glad to have a full support of great handicappers as KingMidas and Phixer - but for me all of you are equal. No difference for me if you're Phixer or KingMidas , or MusicMatt or Jaypaco, Ashylarrymp or Lank, BigUnit or Heads, GG or Fuzzman, Turbovtk or Lopel etc etc etc (forgive me who ever I forget). Please do me a big favor and DONT DO ME ANY FAVORS anyone. Youre here because you're good people first of all and great and consisten handicappers second of all. Not because of me because I have my pluses and minuses and I am also not DOING ANY FAVORS to no one. O a, here because I like it here. I feel proud for OUR achievement and without you I'd be talking to myself. Let's cut all this BS and focus on picks. Couple butt pirates with multiple aliases should not disrupt us. I really respect each and every one of you for being here and dedicating your time. Please lets's kick some butt!!
