Picks for the day

MIA Heat -5.5
OKC Thunder -3.5
DET Pistons -3
TOR Raptors -1.5
MIL Bucks -4

The heat have done well in Atlanta, and with all this comparing LeBron to Jordan has gotten LeBron hungry to dominate and that is what has happened the last month.

Every trend is favoring rockets yet the thunder at such a small line has to be the pick cuz they seem to tear apart bad defense teams and the rockets seem to fall short against the elite.

Pistons have owned the cats, and this year done well against the bottom feeders. Bobcats just had a nice win in Orlando in will be satisfied with that and this game will most likely be a dud.

Raptors have done good at home vs the grizz and the raptors have been awesome on back to back. Rudy will be up for beating his former team.

Bucks will be out for revenge and nets are lousy b2b.

Hey Mavin, Gonna try this again... Are we supposed to have our record up right by our user names?

Anyhow:

Fuzzrod (1-0)

MIA Heat -5.5


Miami has already beaten the Falcons twice this year by more than the spread... And Miami is always sort of a spot play for me... You never know when they're gonna be rolling or not. I think with all the rest from the all-star break they'll be focused and ready to come out and lay a butt whooping.

Hope the format is right and everything. Just lemme know if i'm doing anything wrong

super glad i got MIA -4.5 last night.
i see it at 6 everywhere now. 

If it somehow gets to 7 i may hedge.
ATL has been playing decent ball as of late and im sure they wanna play well tonight to keep things decent.

What do you guys thinking about OKC-HOU?

Don't you think the line is a bit fishy.
Probably first impression that you have when looking at this spread - "no way that Thunder will lose third in a row... no way that OKC will have ANY problems covering this..." Over 90% betors thinking this way... Line also moved for Thunder... 
I know it's scary to bet against Oklahoma, but I really believe that in this case "smart money" are on Houston! I'll wait and see if the line move a little bit more, but will probably pull the trigger on Rockets and the points.

BOL to ALL

VERY FISHY! dropped to -3 from -3.5 on some books with over 85% of bettors on OKC.. might be inclined to take Hou tonight as well.

ATL Hawks +6.5
DAL Mavericks -10.5
HOU Rockets +3.5

- the hawks are 17-9 at home this season and have lost by 7 or more at home only 3 times this season.. i'll take my chances that with 7 days rest, the hawks will also be pumped to steal a big win as this game will be close throughout.
- Dallas is facing Orlando who is on a back to back and is 3-25 SU in their last 28 games! Dallas already beat Orlando by 6 in Orlando as i expect Dallas to blow out Orlando being well rested and winning 4 out of last 5 at home.
- the rockets are a pure line play as too much of the public is on OKC and the line is moving in the rockets direction.. rockets are also 18-8 on the season at home and should be more than focused, i'll take a chance.

2-2 total so far .. 2 wins on raps, 2 losses on Celtics

TOR moneyline vs MEM

5 game winning streak, still not getting the respect that the raptors deserve now with Rudy happy on the team, and this is his house now with his old team coming into town .. I'm going heavy on Toronto to win the game, playing it safe by not taking any points

Rockets could win but have to shoot 50 % from 3 land. They have no one to matchup with Durant.

i also like the Twolves.. BUT it's hard to back a team that's 5-18 since Jan 2nd.. and is under .500 at home on the year.. both teams just too inconsistent for me to bet on.. but if i had to choose one i'd side with MIN since PHI isn't very good themselves being 6-16 on road this season.

you too buddy! the biggest hurdle in your parlay is definitely Minnesota! you get that i think you'll be okay. Only way dallas doesn't win by double digits is if they're just ice cold or completely don't show up defensively.

i also like Toronto! BUT roughly 65-70% of bets on Toronto and line dropped to PK.. this scared me not to bet on it, but with that said i hope everyone that has Toronto on here wins.. but wondering what vegas is thinking there.

pick's for today:

-Over 186.5 MEM Grizzlies-TOR Raptors

ok so my under with the Grizzlies tanked yesterday, don't know why I went against my own observation from before the all-star break that Memphis was trending as an over team since their trades, both teams are averaging 100pts or so per game in their last five.

-Over 205 PHO Suns-GS Warriors

This one scares me a little now that I see a couple of you on the under in this one, but I made my play and I'm not going to change it! my reasoning is that usually the home team dictates the style of play,  G-state likes to play the over vs. division foes(7-3 O/U), on 2nd game of back to back games the over is 11-3 with G-state, and after a loss the over is 15-7.The refs seem to like overs also.

Good luck tonight everyone!

Celtics +7
