Cleveland Cavaliers at Atlanta Hawks.
Line: Cavaliers by 1.

8:30 PM ET (Game 503-504)

I'm back from my hiatus. I needed a break, and I'm returning for this game because I like a side. The sharps are all over the Hawks, and I was planning on going that way before I even saw that. If Kevin Love happened to be healthy, I think the Cavaliers would run away with this series. Love is out, however, and I don't think the public is taking that into account. These teams are close to even with Love out, so I like getting the Hawks as a home underdog (+1 on Bovada).

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Los Angeles Clippers at Houston Rockets.
Line: Rockets by 7.5.

9:35 PM ET (Game 715-716)

My apologies for not posting a pick for a while. The draft consumed all of my time, and I didn't have a feel for any of the games this week. I like the Rockets tonight; this is a must-win for them, and it seems like the Clippers exerted so much energy trying to win Game 1 without Chris Paul that I don't know if they can bring 100 percent to tonight's contest without him again.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Friday, April 24, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Los Angeles Clippers at San Antonio Spurs.
Line: Spurs by 5.

9:35 PM ET (Game 743-744)

The Clippers could be up 2-0 in this series, but Blake Griffin forgot that he's not a point guard. Instead, it's 1-1, and the entire perspective is different. Tony Parker will be back tonight, but that could cause San Antonio to be a bit overconfident. I like the Clippers and the points, as they are the play according to the zig-zag theory.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Thursday, April 23, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics.
Line: Cavaliers by 5.

7:05 PM ET (Game 733-734)

So much for the stupid Blazers. I'm with the public tonight. I don't see the Celtics winning a game in this series. The Cavaliers should win these next two games rather easily. The talent disparity is just too great.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Portland Trailblazers at Memphis Grizzlies.
Line: Grizzlies by 6.

8:05 PM ET (Game 729-730)

I can't seem to buy a win lately. I'm hoping I can rebound tonight with the Blazers. I'm jumping on with the sharps, who have bet this down from +6.5 to +6. This should be a long series, so I like Portland to perhaps win tonight. The zig-zag theory applies.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Monday, April 20, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Milwaukee Bucks at Chicago Bulls.
Line: Bulls by 7.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 717-718)

The Bulls played such a great game on Saturday night, yet they still only covered the spread by four points. I don't think they'll be able to maintain their success, and the Bucks are the play anyway per the zig-zag theory.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Saturday, April 18, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Milwaukee Bucks at Chicago Bulls.
Line: Bulls by 8.

7:05 PM ET (Game 805-806)

The Bulls play hard in the regular season, but teams catch up to them in the playoffs. At least, that was my theory. I looked back, and in its previous five playoffs, Chicago is 9-12 against the spread as a favorite. This number is high as a consequence, and the sharps must agree because they bet this down from +8.5 to +8.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Thursday, April 9, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Chicago Bulls at Miami Heat.
Line: Total: 192.

8:05 PM ET (Game 501-502)

I don't like any of the sides tonight, but I think I'm going to try with a total. The three referees in the Chicago-Miami game tonight have combined for 609 overs compared to just 517 unders over the past few seasons. Add in the fact that Miami has gone over the total in its previous four contests, and I think the over is worth a small bet tonight.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Tuesday, April 7, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Phoenix Suns at Atlanta Hawks.
Line: Hawks by 7.

7:35 PM ET (Game 653-654)

The Hawks have had trouble maintaining success lately, and I'm not sure if they'll be completely focused for the Suns tonight. This game just doesn't mean much to them because they're way ahead of Cleveland for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Saturday, April 4, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Washington Bullets at Memphis Grizzlies.
Line: Grizzlies by 7.

8:05 PM ET (Game 809-810)

Maybe that break was just what I needed. At least I hope so. Anyway, I like the Bullets to cover this spread. Memphis played a big game against Oklahoma City last night and may not take Washington seriously as a consequence. The Bullets played last night as well, but this contest means more to them than last night's victory over the Knicks.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Friday, April 3, 2015


Detroit Pistons at Chicago Bulls.
Line: Bulls by 9.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 513-514)

I wanted to take a week off after some recent losses. Perhaps I'll rebound tonight with the Pistons. They've played well lately, having won five of their previous seven. The Bulls, meanwhile, have to deal with Cleveland in a couple of days.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Friday, March 27, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Los Angeles Lakers at Toronto Raptors.
Line: Raptors by 8.5.

7:35 PM ET (Game 857-858)

I can't buy a win right now, as I lost last night's game by one point. I like the Lakers tonight; they're 8-2-2 against the spread in their previous 12 games, while the Raptors have not played good basketball lately.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Lakers +8.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Thursday, March 26, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Indiana Pacers at Milwaukee Bucks.
Line: Bucks by 3.

8:05 PM ET (Game 801-802)

I like the only game on the slate tonight. Both teams have had trouble winning lately, but the Bucks have the Warriors and Hawks coming up this weekend, so they could be focused on those games.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Pacers +3 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Monday, March 23, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Washington Bullets at Golden State Warriors.
Line: Warriors by 11.5.

10:35 PM ET (Game 611-612)

It hasn't been a good idea to bet against the Warriors this year, but I'm going to do that tonight. I believe they'll be distracted for two reasons: First, they have a long road trip coming up after this contest, and second, they go against the Blazers tomorrow night. The Bullets lost last night, but it seemed like they were looking ahead to this contest.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Bullets +11.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Sunday, March 22, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Miami Heat at Oklahoma City Thunder.
Line: Thunder by 3.5.

3:05 PM ET (Game 823-824)

Miami has caught fire recently, having won seven of 10. It has beaten some pretty good teams, including Cleveland and Portland. I like the Heat's chances of covering against a banged-up Thunder squad.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Heat +3.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Friday, March 20, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Washington Bullets at Los Angeles Clippers.
Line: Clippers by 7.

10:35 PM ET (Game 823-824)

The Clippers haven't played very good basketball lately, as their win versus the Kings was their sole cover since March 11. The Bullets, meanwhile, have caught fire after struggling for a while. I like them to cover tonight.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Bullets +7 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Thursday, March 19, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Denver Nuggets at Houston Rockets.
Line: Rockets by 6.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 703-704)

The Nuggets have been hot ever since they fired their head coach. The Rockets, on the other hand, have just been 4-4 in their previous eight games, so I like Denver to cover as an underdog.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Nuggets +6.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Wednesday, March 18, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Boston Celtics at Oklahoma City Thunder.
Line: Thunder by 6.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 615-616)

Sorry for disappearing for a week; free agency and Selection Sunday kicked my a**, and I didn't like any of the games yesterday. I do want to pick Boston though. The Celtics are hot, so they should be able to compete with an Oklahoma City team that could be distracted with Atlanta on the horizon on Friday.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Celtics +6.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Wednesday, March 11, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Minnesota Timberwolves at Phoenix Suns.
Line: Suns by 4.5.

10:05 PM ET (Game 715-716)

The Suns have not been good since the All-Star break, going just 4-7, as they just haven't played well since making some questionable trades. The Timberwolves don't have a good record in that span either, but they've been more competitive for the most part recently.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Timberwolves +4.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Monday, March 9, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Boston Celtics at Miami Heat.
Line: Heat by 3.

7:35 PM ET (Game 703-704)

Both teams have been playing better lately, so it's surprising to me that so much money is on Miami. The Celtics are 5-3 in their previous eight games, and two of their losses were against the Cavaliers and Warriors. I like them getting a field goal tonight.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Celtics +3 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Sunday, March 8, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Utah Jazz at Brooklyn Nets.
Line: Nets by 2.

6:05 PM ET (Game 805-806)

These teams have similar records, but the Jazz are the better team. they're 6-2 since the All-Star break, having beaten the Spurs, Blazers and Grizzlies in that stretch. The Nets, on the other hand, have dropped two in a row since beating Golden State. They definitely did a bit too much celebrating after that victory.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Jazz +2 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Friday, March 6, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Denver Nuggets at San Antonio Spurs.
Line: Spurs by 11.

8:35 PM ET (Game 821-822)

The Nuggets are actually trying now that they fired their head coach. How great of them. I like them to cover tonight against the Spurs, who have been a good fade this season. San Antonio has games coming up against Chicago, Toronto and Cleveland, so the focus may not be here.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Nuggets +11 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Wednesday, March 4, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Utah Jazz at Boston Celtics.
Line: Celtics by 1.5.

7:35 PM ET (Game 705-706)

I just can't catch a break lately. I still have no idea how the Pelicans didn't cover on Monday. Hopefully I'll have better luck with the Jazz tonight. Utah is 5-1 since the All-Star Break, having beaten Portland, Memphis and San Antonio, which is impressive. The Celtics just had a tough game last night against the Cavaliers, so they may not be able to go 100 percent in this contest.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Jazz +1.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Monday, March 2, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


New Orleans Pelicans at Dallas Mavericks.
Line: Mavericks by 8.

8:35 PM ET (Game 709-710)

My apologies for not posting a pick since Friday; my laptop's hard drive crashed, and I was working on a slow computer for the past two days, and it was just too difficult to do research. I needed a break anyway. I do like New Orleans though. The Hornets are a hot team, while Dallas hasn't been performing well amid controversy.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Pelicans +8 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Friday, Feb. 27, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Minnesota Timberwolves at Chicago Bulls.
Line: Bulls by 4.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 819-820)

The sharps are taking the Timberwolves, as this spread has dropped two points despite there being equal action on both sides. Minnesota has played well lately, having won five of eight. The Bulls, meanwhile, are obviously not as good without Derrick Rose.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Timberwolves +4.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Philadelphia 76ers at Milwaukee Bucks.
Line: Bucks by 10.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 711-712)

The 76ers are the laughing stock of the NBA, but they're 8-2-1 against the spread in their previous 11 games. This spread is way too high, so I like their chances of covering. The Bucks, meanwhile, haven't been playing very good basketball lately. They're 1-2 since the break, with the sole victory being an eight-point win over lowly Denver.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: 76ers +10.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Indiana Pacers at Oklahoma City Thunder.
Line: Thunder by 7.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 505-506)

The Pacers, almost out of nowhere, have been red hot. They're 8-3 in their previous 11 games. I like them to cover this spread, especially with Kevin Durant out. Indiana will be completely focused for this contest because the team doesn't play again until Friday.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Pacers +7.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Monday, Feb. 23, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Boston Celtics at Phoenix Suns.
Line: Suns by 8.

9:05 PM ET (Game 711-712)

The Celtics, despite their dismal record, play hard most nights. They lost to the Lakers yesterday, but it seemed like they were looking forward to this matchup, as it's hard to play 100 percent in back-to-back contests. The Suns, meanwhile, shouldn't be eight-point favorites, as they are just 1-7 in their previous eight games.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Celtics +8 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Memphis Grizzlies at Portland Trailblazers.
Line: Trailblazers by 4.

9:05 PM ET (Game 815-816)

The Grizzlies are four-point underdogs in this matchup, yet they're the better team. The Blazers haven't played very well in the past month and a half, going just 6-10 in their previous 16 games.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Grizzlies +4 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Toronto Raptors at Houston Rockets.
Line: Rockets by 2.

8:05 PM ET (Game 507-508)

The All-Star break did not cool down the Raptors. They are on fire, having gone 11-3 in their previous 14 games. The way they were able to dismantle the Hawks last night was very impressive. The sharps took notice, betting this down from +3.5 to +2. The Rockets just aren't the same without Dwight Howard.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Raptors +2 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Friday, Feb. 20, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Phoenix Suns at Minnesota Timberwolves.
Line: Timberwolves by 1.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 813-814)

The Suns were the laughing stock of the NBA trade deadline. Everyone has been trashing them over the past 24 hours, so I think that could serve as motivation going forward. Phoenix is still a better team than Minnesota, even in the wake of its crappy deals, so it shouldn't be an underdog in this matchup. The Suns should be able to pull off this "upset."

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015 (0-1, -$110)


Dallas Mavericks at Oklahoma City Thunder.
Line: Thunder by 5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 501-502)

The Thunder made a big trade today and could be distracted for this game. The Mavericks, meanwhile, had won six of eight prior to the All-Star break. I like their chances of covering tonight.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Mavericks +5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Miami Heat at Cleveland Cavaliers.
Line: Cavaliers by 12.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 713-714)

I usually pick underdogs, but I'm laying the points tonight. LeBron James lost to the Heat in his first meeting against them earlier this year, but he'll get revenge this time. Cleveland is red hot, having won 13 of 14, and the team's success will continue. The Cavaliers have eight double-digit wins during this span, while Miami has dropped five of seven, most recently losing to the Spurs by 13.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Cavaliers -12.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Detroit Pistons at Charlotte Hornets.
Line: Hornets by 1.5.

7:05 PM ET (Game 501-502)

I picked the Hornets a few times recently, but I'm backing off them now; they've dropped two in a row to the 76ers and Pacers, so they don't look the same. The Pistons, meanwhile, have won three of five and seem to be playing better basketball right now.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Pistons +1.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Monday, Feb. 9, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas Mavericks.
Line: Mavericks by 9.

8:35 PM ET (Game 715-716)

I'm buying low here. Everyone is piling on the Clippers today in the wake of their blowout loss last night and Blake Griffin's injury. The Clippers have dropped four in a row, but three of their losses were against good teams. This number is too high, so I like them to cover tonight.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Clippers +9 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015 (1-0, +$100)


Portland Trailblazers at Houston Rockets.
Line: Rockets by 5.

7:05 PM ET (Game 815-816)

What an awful week. I hope things can turn around soon. Perhaps tonight with the Blazers. This line is a bit high, as Portland played last night. However, the Blazers are 3-3 ATS on no rest when battling a team with rest, so I don't think that's much of a factor. The Rockets, meanwhile, have built up victories against bad teams like the Celtics and Bucks lately.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Sacramento Kings at Utah Jazz.
Line: Jazz by 6.

9:05 PM ET (Game 513-514)

The Jazz are coming off five extremely difficult games, including a tough loss to the Suns last night, so I don't know if they're in a good position as a moderately sized favorite. The Kings, meanwhile, have dropped 10 of 11, but check out some of the teams they've lost to: Mavericks (2x), Clippers, Blazers, Warriors (2x), Raptors and Cavaliers. Sacramento is not a good team, but it's not bad enough to usually go 1-10 for a stretch, so I like its chances of covering tonight.

9:35 PM ET (Game 823-824)

The Spurs haven't played well lately, failing to cover their previous four games. They've barely beaten the likes of Orlando, Charlotte and Milwaukee. This number is pretty high, so Miami should be able to cover it. It's also worth noting that the Spurs are going on an East Coast trip after this contest, so they could be a bit distracted.

10:35 PM ET (Game 507-508)

I'm still trying to figure out how the Mavericks blew a 24-4 lead last night. I'll try the Suns tonight; they've played better than the Blazers lately, as Portland is just 3-8 in its previous 11 games. The Blazers' only victories in that stretch have been against the Jazz, Bullets and Kings. They'll also be looking ahead to this weekend, given that they have to battle Dallas and Houston on the road.

7:35 PM ET (Game 705-706)

I've been going against Washington recently, but I'm taking them this time. This is more of a fade of Atlanta, however. No one should've been surprised that the Hawks lost to the Pelicans; they had not been playing well, failing to cover against the hapless 76ers. They could lack energy following that defeat, and they could also be looking forward to their matchup against the Warriors on Friday.

Dallas Mavericks at Golden State Warriors.

10:35 PM ET (Game 721-722)

The Warriors, likewise, could be looking ahead to the battle against Atlanta on Friday, and they might be tired after playing last night. Adding to that, Golden State's upcoming East Coast road trip could serve as a distraction. The Mavericks, meanwhile, have begun winning lately after struggling, so I like them to cover tonight.

I'm taking the Hornets once again. They've won 10 of 13, yet no one is paying attention to them. The Bullets, meanwhile, have dropped four of six, and their two wins were slim victories against the Lakers and Nuggets. It's also worth noting that Washington has to take on Atlanta in two days, so the team could be looking ahead.

7:05 PM ET (Game 505-506)

The sharps are all over the Kings, and I was wondering why; they've lost eight games in a row and have failed to cover their previous four. Looking deeper into it, however, check out six of the teams they've battled during their losing streak: Mavericks, Clippers, Trailblazers, Warriors, Raptors, Cavaliers. That's a tough slate, so taking on a pedestrian Indiana squad will be an easier task.

Charlotte Hornets at Denver Nuggets.
Line: Nuggets by 6.

9:05 PM ET (Game 519-520)

I did not like how the Nuggets looked in their loss to Memphis. They lost all the energy they had been playing with. Now, they're home for the first time in a week and they have to go on the road again for a while after this contest, so there could be plenty of distractions. Charlotte, on the other hand, has won nine of its previous 12 games, yet no one is talking about it. The Hornets should not be six-point dogs in this matchup.

I'm sure some will look at this game and fade the Bulls because this is their third contest in four nights, but I'm looking at it from a different angle: I don't think they tried very hard versus the Lakers last night, and they don't play again until Wednesday, so there's plenty of incentive for them to be close to 100 percent in this game. The Suns, meanwhile, have Golden State tomorrow night, so this matchup may not mean as much to them.

I'm picking the Nuggets again; they're playing very well right now and don't deserve to be double-digit underdogs. They did play last night, but I don't think that's a negative, since they can keep their momentum going. Besides, Denver hasn't lost a game by more than 10 points in which it hasn't had any rest, so this spread is inflated a bit for no reason. It's worth noting that the Grizzlies have to take on the Thunder and Suns after this game, so they could be distracted.

8:05 PM ET (Game 711-712)

The Nuggets came through for me on Monday, so I'm hoping that'll be the case again tonight. Denver has played relatively well lately, nearly beating the Clippers and Bullets. The Pelicans, meanwhile, have won four in a row, but three of their victories have come against the Lakers, Timberwolves and 76ers. Plus, they have the Clippers, Hawks and Thunder (twice) after this contest, so they may not be focused for it.

This spread is too high. Sure, the Nuggets aren't any good, but they've lost by more than 10 points just once since Jan. 3. The Clippers have a long road trip coming up after this game, so they could be too preoccupied with making plans.

The Hawks have covered a billion games in a row, so it may not seem wise to go against them. They just haven't been favored by this much during their winning streak; the largest number they've laid was 11.5. The Timberwolves, meanwhile, have just two losses by this margin since Christmas.

7:05 PM ET (Game 813-814)

The Pistons were blown out last night, but I feel as though they were looking ahead to this game. They should be able to cover this number, as Toronto hasn't been playing well lately; the Raptors have lost eight of their previous 12 contests, so they shouldn't be favored by this much.

I took the Nets over the Kings a few days ago because I liked how they had time off to fix some things. They covered that game, but were blown out the following night against the Clippers.

I normally don't like taking road favorites, but I'm going to do that tonight. This isn't a high-volume game, so I don't think the high betting percentage on New Orleans matters all that much.

The Pacers seem like the right side. They've had a couple of days off, while the Nuggets played a tough game last night. They beat the Clippers and seem like they're due for a letdown. The sharps agree, as they've bet down Indiana despite an overwhelming amount of action on Denver.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Pacers +3.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100

Portland Trailblazers at San Antonio Spurs.
Line: Spurs by 4.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 815-816)

The Spurs have been a nice fade lately. They're 2-4 in their previous six games, with their wins coming against the terrible Knicks and Nuggets. They have to be exhausted following their triple-overtime loss to Memphis, and they have another game tomorrow night at Dallas and the newly acquired Rajon Rondo.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden State Warriors.
Line: Warriors by 2.5.

10:35 PM ET (Game 507-508)

The Warriors appear to be in a funk, and I like the Thunder to win this game. Oklahoma City is a desperate team because it knows it needs to rack up as many victories as possible to get back into the playoff picture. There's sharp action on the Thunder.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Milwaukee Bucks at Portland Trailblazers.
Line: Trailblazers by 10.

10:05 PM ET (Game 715-716)

I normally don't like to pick teams that have to play the following night, but the Bucks are 6-1 ATS in such situations, so they're fine. With that in mind, this spread is too high. A lot is being made over the Jabari Parker injury, but the Bucks should still be OK. Portland, meanwhile, is a bit overrated. The Trailblazers haven't beaten a quality opponent in more than a month. They defeated San Antonio a couple of nights ago, but all the Spurs' regulars were out. The Bucks should be able to give them a tough game.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Bucks +10 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014 (0-1, -$110)


Golden State Warriors at Memphis Grizzlies.
Line: Grizzlies by 3.

8:05 PM ET (Game 509-510)

This is being billed as a big game, but the Grizzlies could have one eye on tomorrow's matchup against the Spurs. The Warriors could be more focused, so I like getting three points with them versus a Memphis team that barely beat Charlotte and Philadelphia recently.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Milwaukee Bucks at Phoenix Suns.
Line: Suns by 5.5.

9:05 PM ET (Game 711-712)

I've been stuck on 19 wins for a while, so I need to get on the winning track. I think the Bucks are the right side tonight. Phoenix had a tough game yesterday against the Thunder, while the Bucks have been playing well, covering seven of their previous 10 games.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Bucks +5.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100

Atlanta Hawks at Orlando Magic.
Line: Hawks by 3.

7:05 PM ET (Game 503-504)

The sharps have bet this from +4 to +3, probably because they think Orlando is a good play in the wake of the Hawks' win over the Magic the previous night. What I think they're missing is that road favorites are an OK 71-65 ATS versus a team they just beat as home favorites. The Hawks are simply better than the Magic, so I'm going to take the value and wager a unit on Atlanta.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Hawks -3 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110

New York Knicks at New Orleans Pelicans.
Line: Pelicans by 6.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 707-708)

The Knicks are an awful team, but this seems like the right time to take them. They've been playing hard and covering spreads, as they are desperate for a win. The Pelicans, meanwhile, have a big game at Dallas tomorrow night, so they probably won't be up for this contest.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Knicks +6.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014 (0-1, -$110)


New Orleans Pelicans at Los Angeles Clippers.
Line: Clippers by 9.

10:35 PM ET (Game 511-512)

I'm going to try the Pelicans again. The Clippers, following their victory over the Dwight Howard-less Rockets, have beaten some pretty pedestrian teams, which has improved their record and increased this spread as a result. It also must be noted that home teams have losing records with all three refs in this game.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Pelicans +9 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110

Miami Heat at Milwaukee Bucks.
Line: Bucks by 1.5.

8:35 PM ET (Game 819-820)

I went against the sharps last night, but I'm with them this time. The Bucks are coming off two brutal losses to the Cavaliers and Mavericks, so they could be spent. Miami has dropped three of four, but it has lost to some pretty decent teams. The Heat should cover against an easier foe. Also, home teams are just 202-237 ATS when Zach Zarba officiates.

New Orleans Pelicans at Golden State Warriors.
Line: Warriors by 9.5.

10:35 PM ET (Game 505-506)

The sharps have bet up the Warriors, but that has created some line value with the Pelicans. Golden State has an awesome record, but guess how many teams it has played this year that currently have a winning record? TWO! The Warriors have beaten up on crap teams all season, and the Pelicans are a solid team (albeit at .500) that can steal a win here. Also, home teams don't have winning records with any of the three NBA refs in tonight's contest.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Pelicans +9.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Dallas Mavericks at Chicago Bulls.
Line: Bulls by 1.

8:05 PM ET (Game 511-512)

I'm taking the Mavericks tonight. Chicago is playing its first home game in a couple of weeks, so there could be distractions for the players. Derrick Rose will also be on the court tonight, but with another contest tomorrow, he could be a bit limited. Keep this in mind as well: Home teams are just 178-244 ATS when Tony Brothers officiates.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Mavericks +1 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Monday, Dec. 1, 2014 (0-1, -$110)


Miami Heat at Washington Bullets.
Line: Bullets by 5.

7:05 PM ET (Game 701-702)

The oddsmakers haven't adjusted this spread for Nene's injury. The Bullets haven't covered a game since Nene has gotten hurt, and he's doubtful for tonight's contest. Miami is playing better basketball right now, so I'm taking them. I'm not a fan of the fact that they played yesterday, but the Heat is 2-1 ATS this year when on no rest and battling a team with rest. Also, all three NBA refs assigned to this game have a negative ATS record pertaining to home teams.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Heat +5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110





Sunday, Nov. 30, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Orlando Magic at Phoenix Suns.
Line: Suns by 10.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 811-812)

Like the other two games this weekend, this spread has been inflated because the favorite has beaten up on crappy teams. The Suns have won five of seven, but their victories have come against the Celtics, Pistons, 76ers, Pacers and Nuggets. That's not impressive at all. Orlando, meanwhile, has dropped four straight, but three of its foes have been tough (Heat, Cavaliers, Warriors). Also, we get another opportunity to fade Scott Foster; home teams are now an alarming 188-251 ATS when he officiates.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Magic +10.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Saturday, Nov. 29, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Houston Rockets at Milwaukee Bucks.
Line: Bucks by 3.

9:05 PM ET (Game 509-510)

The sharps have bet this up from pick to -3, but I'm going the other way. In addition to the spread value created by the line movement, we have a situation like last night in which an inferior team that has beaten up on crappy opponents is favored over a superior foe. Additionally, all three NBA refs tonight have a negative record pertaining to hosts.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Rockets +3 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Friday, Nov. 28, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Memphis Grizzlies at Portland Trail Blazers.
Line: Trail Blazers by 4.

10:05 PM ET (Game 721-722)

The Grizzlies and Blazers have similar records, but one team is clearly better than the other. Whereas Memphis has victories over tough opponents like the Rockets, Kings and Raptors, eight of Portland's previous nine wins have come against the Hornets (twice), 76ers, Celtics, Bulls (without Derrick Rose), Nets and Nuggets (twice). The toughest team they've beaten in this stretch was 7-6 New Orleans. On top of that, all three NBA refs tonight have a negative record pertaining to home teams.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Grizzlies +4 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100

Atlanta Hawks at Washington Bullets.
Line: Bullets by 4.5.

7:05 PM ET (Game 501-502)

In another opportunity to go against Scott Foster, I'm taking the Hawks. They floundered for a couple of games because they played the Cavaliers and then were flat after the loss. They should be up for this game, whereas the Bullets will be looking ahead to battling Cleveland tomorrow night. Washington will be without Nene, and the team has really struggled when he's been injured in the past.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Hawks +4.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100

Orlando Magic at Cleveland Cavaliers.
Line: Cavaliers by 9.

7:05 PM ET (Game 701-702)

The sharps are fading the Cavaliers once again, and so am I. This spread has dropped from +10 to +9, so we're not getting as much value on Orlando. However, the Magic is 7-2 against the spread in road games this year, while the struggling Cavaliers are still trying to figure themselves out. Also, keep in mind that Brent Barnaky is another ref you want to fade; home teams are only 94-120 ATS when he officiates.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Magic +9 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110

Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers.
Line: Cavaliers by 3.

7:35 PM ET (Game 705-706)

The sharps bet this down from +4.5 to +3, but I still think the Raptors are the right side. The Cavaliers will be dominant as this season progresses, but they're still finding themselves, just as Miami did a few years ago. This is a bigger game for Toronto, anyway. Oh, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that home teams are just 188-248 against the spread when NBA ref Scott Foster officiates games.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Los Angeles Lakers at Dallas Mavericks.
Line: Mavericks by 11.

8:35 PM ET (Game 517-518)

The Mavericks are playing great basketball, having won five in a row, but they have to travel to Houston tomorrow night for a big game, so they could be distracted. The Lakers have been better lately. They just won at Houston and Atlanta, so I don't see why they couldn't hang this number.

Los Angeles Clippers at Orlando Magic.
Line: Clippers by 5.

7:05 PM ET (Game 505-506)

There's more money on the Clippers than any other team tonight, and I can't figure out why. Has anyone watched the Clippers play this year? There's a reason they are 1-8 against the spread. They also have to battle Miami tomorrow night, so they won't be fully focused. Meanwhile, the Magic have performed well lately, winning three of four. They have no distractions on the horizon, so they can fully concentrate on beating the Clippers tonight.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Line: Clippers by 6.

10:35 PM ET (Game 517-518)

The Clippers have covered just one game this year. That was against Phoenix after four days of rest when the Suns didn't have any. The Bulls, meanwhile, have been OK without Derrick Rose, and they don't have any tough games on the horizon, so they can fully concentrate on the Clippers tonight.

I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Houston Rockets at Oklahoma City Thunder.
Line: Rockets by 5.

7:05 PM ET (Game 705-706)

There's so much money on a team that only beat the Sixers by one point. The Rockets are getting all of the action, but they've been sloppy ever since defeating the Spurs. The Thunder haven't been good either, but they haven't been as bad as their record indicates. They've only played four home games this season. In those contests, they've beaten the Nuggets and Kings, and they lost a close game to the Grizzlies. They did have a bad loss recently, but I like them to cover this contest.

San Antonio Spurs at Sacramento Kings.
Line: Spurs by 1.5.

10:05 PM ET (Game 513-514)

The Spurs don't give it their all in some games during the regular season because they know they have to pace themselves to thrive in the playoffs. This might be a night where they take it easy, given that they played yesterday. The Kings, meanwhile, are a pretty decent team that has blown big leads on the road. They could have more success at home, and I think they'll take this game more seriously than San Antonio. Also keep in mind that there's a high percentage of action on the Spurs.

7:35 PM ET (Game 705-706)

The public is on the Knicks. The sharps are taking the Hawks. I'm with the sharps. The Knicks are still overrated following their fluke victory over the Cavaliers; their only other victory this season has been against the Hornets by three in a non-cover. Atlanta is the better team, and isn't favored by enough.

Minnesota Timberwolves at Miami Heat.

The Heat and the Timberwolves are two pretty average teams, so this spread seems like it's too high - especially with Miami having a big game against Dallas tomorrow. The Heat may not take this contest seriously.

10:35 PM ET (Game 521-522)

I feel like a square by taking the Cavaliers, but I think they're the right side tonight. Much is being made of their losing streak, but they've lost to a couple of decent teams in the Jazz and Blazers. The Nuggets are not a good squad; they even lost to the Thunder last weekend. The Cavaliers will be focused to get back on the winning track, so I think they'll get it done tonight.

Atlanta Hawkins at San Antonio Spurs.
Line: Spurs by 8.

8:35 PM ET (Game 515-516)

The Spurs don't give it their all in most of their regular-season games, which means that fading them can often be profitable. This spread is just too high; the Hawks are a solid team, and it seems like a victory would mean more to them than it would to San Antonio.

The Clippers are not as good as everyone thinks they are. They barely beat the Kevin Durant- and Russell Westbrook-less Thunder and horrible Lakers, and then they lost to the Kings yesterday. The Jazz are closer to the Clippers than this spread indicates, yet the public continues to pound Los Angeles at a 70-percent clip.

The Clippers are 2-0, but they've underachieved in both games, failing to cover their double-digit spreads. I don't see why they'd suddenly do it. The Kings aren't terrible, so they should be able to play close. I also have my eye on the Hornets today, but I want them at +4.

Overreaction, much? The public has bet up the Bulls from -2.5 to -3.5 in the wake of Cleveland's loss to New York last night. We're getting some value with the Cavaliers, who were simply distracted. It was a bad loss, but the Knicks deserve credit for getting up for a game after being embarrassed. I think Cleveland bounces back tonight.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles Clippers.
Line: Clippers by 13.

10:35 PM ET (Game 509-510)

Not a good start to the season, but hopefully I can rebound tonight. This spread is an overreaction to Oklahoma City's loss last night, as the public bet up the Clippers from -9.5 to -13. There's been sharp action on Oklahoma City +13. Don't be concerned about a revenge spot; I doubt the Clippers view this as an opportunity to make for their playoff loss because Kevin Durant won't be on the court.

I can't believe the NBA is back already. I figured I'd start on time this year. The Lakers look like the right side in this matchup; this definitely seems like a "no one believes in us" type of dynamic. Kobe Bryant has spent the entire offseason hearing about how he's a waste of money right now. I think he and his team come out strong with a victory here, though the Lakers will ultimately fade away into oblivion by January or February.

It's also worth noting that Vegas has a liability on this game, as there is more action on the Rockets tonight than any of the six NBA sides.

For tonight:  Closing a three team par from last night with:  Twins -111,  hedging on the comeback for 35 percent with Seattle.  In an ongoing par from last night going in the all important second tier spot will be Giants -174,  one still open.  Start up par tonight with:  Royals +102 (There is a dog for you sh t  head),  LAD -175,  one open.  Start up par with Cards -230,  two open.  Placing another unit on this par because of the high ML,  comparable extra  Hedge with the Rockies as well.  That's it folks.  GLTA.

@Lezbo Janey: Scroll down a little bit,  you will see my answer to your BS (as usual) post.  Okay back to real people,  I go 2 and 3 overall last night,  not great,  but I did get my most important play to  win....thank you Astros for giving me a win win par last night.  I also win one start up par play,  thank you Cards.  I do lose three other start up pars,  sans HEDGES.  Another busy day for me with no time to speak of for looking at any games.  I have  a little time now,  so I'll be back in a while.  Congrats to winners and of course to the TROLLS/IDIOTS?GHOSTS.....(as usual).....Seek psychological  help.

 @ Chuckster 

  What's up loser. Just got done reading your garbage posts. Do you ever pick underdogs? And your logic on hedging is invalid. Any TRUE capper knows you only have to hit 50% of mlb parlays to be up. 50% my friend. No need to hedge and win LESS. Take your losing days like a MAN. I don't know how u have a family your still a little boy with no sack. Take your hedging and kill yourself. Just 50% of your pars have to hit now stop hedging before I find u.

@Lesbian JANES:  Sounds like your on the rag today Janey,  a lot of pent up anger....hey it's a free country weirdo,  so you keep on "Talking the Talk,".....shame that you never seem to "Walk the Walk."  As far as your jive ass threats,  I look on that like your wagering on  this site.....NON EXISTENT.  You should know by now Sparky......I'm not going anywhere,  sort of like your sports wagering knowledge.

Okay..back to important stuff:  Going in the all important second tier spot of yesterdays LAD start up par will be Houston -130,  one open.  Start up par with: Braves -120 (a fuqer trail choice),  two open.  Start up par with: Chisox -178 (Sale),  two open.  Start up par with:  Pirates -154,  two open.  Finally a start up par with: Cards -190,  two open.  Editors note:  On the Chisox par and the St. Louis Par,  I am putting down an extra unit due to hefty ML...Hedges for these two will be comparably upgraded as well.  GLTA tonight.

lol....yes indeed "DS"....ouch.  I go 1 and  5 yesterday with the Cards loss (again) being the most detrimental,  being a second tier spot choice.  Could have had a horrific wagering day..........BUT......you know what I'm going to say right??  I cut my loses by more than a third with HEDGES.  As I've posted before,  their an annoyance when you have a good day,  but their are a "bank saver" when  you have a crappy day. I do manage to get the Dodgers in the W column in a start up par play.  Back home now (at least for a few days) and I have had almost zero time to look at any games. I'm tempted to trail fuqer,  he is a solid caper,  one of the very few that I have seen on Walts NBA post site during the baseball season.  Anyway congrats to winners and back very quickly with some possible plays.

@Curious 

Fister 12-3 in July, Nats are getting some players back. They need a win badly. Nats 20-7 L27 vs NL East. The Nats are 10-3 in Fister's last 13 starts with 5 days of rest, plus 6-2 when he faces a team with a losing record.

For tonight:  Closing two pars with  KC +110,  hedging for 35 percent on the comeback  with Cleveland.  Don't get this ML at all,  but what I do know is when a team that is 21 games over .500  is getting PLUS ML against a team that is Sub .500,  I'm going to be there for a play.  I have another par ongoing that needs a second tier choice,  going in that par will be Cards -155 tonight.  Finally I have two start up par plays,  Yankees -114,  two open.  Giants -149,  two open.  That's it for me folks....GL to  most of you......to the others??  Well Hell you know.

I go 4-5 yesterday in MLB,  but still made plus coin.  For you new "capers,"  I can't emphasize  this enough:  Money Management and  Discipline  are  Absolutes in sports wagering. I ended up with two Hedge wins off of two closing par loses and also won a win win par that I will be Closing/Hedging today.  I also got two start up pars off to a good start with first tier wins.  I did lose two start up pars and lost three other pars in progress.  Short board in MLB today,  back in a while with some picks.  Congrats to winners yesterday.

Adding last game of the night. Due to both of their inconsistencies, I think it could go either way but after yesterday I think Det. will play off their momentum and find another W at a great price.

DET

DET UNDER 9.5

It was a pretty good day yesterday for +$269. I had no luck on the RL's as all three lost, but two won by 1 run. That's why I usually stick with -1 and not RL. The Twins loss was a tough one. GLA!
