If you’ve been living under a rock you may have missed that the NBA is back. That means I, by I obviously I mean we, have one more thing to bet on.
After starting the season 0-4, I currently sit at 13-10 for my NBA picks this year. Had a little hole but I’ve dug myself out of it quite nicely. I try and tweet them, same with NFL and CFB, but I’m human and can forget so that is what this blog is for. Let’s make some money together.
Picks are straight forward tonight, not a lot of games to choose from.
Let’s start with Sixers ML. I made this pick while it was Sixers +1, they’re currently +2.5. Embiid and Drummond are both still questionable as I write this. I’m going to blog all of my picks even the bad ones. This may end up being a bad one. If Embiid doesn’t play this game becomes nearly impossible but there’s still that chance he starts, that’s what we’re gonna hope for.
Lakers -2.5 scares me because it seems so easy. The Lakers are a team I have doubts with but are projected to be good and the Spurs are a team I think are young but mid. Lakers SHOULD handle this team without issue even if Lebron is out but the Lakers have had issues doing that so far. Line has moved to Lakers -3.
The last straight pick of the night is Denver +7. I like Denver and I hate Utah but Utah isn’t awful. I think Jokic, especially after getting dunked on by Lauri, is going to try and ball out tonight. Denver might lose but I think they can keep it close.
My last play was inspired by this tweet.
I took Bens picks almost exactly but I did leave off the Danny Green and RJ Barrett’s 3s made. This season Green has gone 0 for 1, 2 for 6 and 4 for 6. Barrett has gone 3 for 7, 0 for 5 and 1 for 7. They both have the potential to make enough 3s to cash in but I wasn’t willing to risk it on those two.
Those are my picks for tonight, make sure to follow me on Twitter @EJS_4 for any live bets I take and comeback here tomorrow for more free winners.
