Time to Pick Some winners
As the College football season ended and the NFL has gotten down to the last game of the season, the gambling season never ends, so I am rolling out a new franchise of NBA Wednesdays Pick em where I will Pick (and bet on) 4-5 games every Wednesday by the spread.
76ers vs. Mavericks (-7.5)
Two of the more bottom of the barrel teams face off In a mix of teams led by big guys, with Dirk leading the Mavs and #theprocess Joel Embid on the come up. I was surprised to see this line, making my choice a little easier. Even though the Mavs have been on a bit of a hot streak lately, I would be surprised if they got up for the 76ers, leading me to think this will be a close game.
Clippers -3 vs. Suns
This would be a vastly higher line if the clippers team was healthy, but with CP3 out and blake still coming off an injury, this makes for an interesting game with the upstart Suns led by Devin Booker and his ability to score at will. The Clippers are still licking their wounds after being 44 pieced by the Warriors, should come out ready and raring to establish they deserve to be a top 4 West Team.
Bucks Vs. Jazz -7.5
This is gonna shape up to be a great matchup of two teams that play relatively the same style, even though the jazz do it with more success. The Jazz have shot up to 5th in the west while the bucks are 9th in the lowly east, and even though I love giannis antetokounmpo's (yes i googled the spelling) game, the jazz are just further along in their development.
Chicago Bulls vs Oklahoma City Thunder (-4)
This game brings together 2 of the most dysfunctional teams in the NBA, while Russ has completely taken over the Thunder valuing stat chasing more than wins, the Bulls locker room has imploded with constant infighting that has no end in sight. A team that takes shots on instagram is not one with a winning formula.
Hornets vs. Warriors (-15.5)
Let me make one thing clear before I make my pick: I absolutely HATE betting on the warriors. They always have ridiculously high lines and you have no idea which Golden State team will come out in play. If the Warriors play to their highest ability, they beat this team by 30 everytime, but that is not always the case. With steph coming off the flu, and maybe one of the core 8 players sitting, while I think the warriors will win....
This wraps up my weekly NBA Pick em, good luck to all, and may the spread be forever in your favor.
The Bay, Gambiling, and everything in between
Everything you need to know about the yay.
