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.

NBA Pick: Raptors +3 (1 Unit)

Friday, Nov. 21, 2014 (0-1, -$110)


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.

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

NBA Pick: Lakers +11 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110












Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014 (0-1, -$220)


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.

NBA Pick: Magic +5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220





Monday, Nov. 17, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Chicago Bulls at Los Angeles Clippers.
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.

NBA Pick: Bulls +6 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Sunday, Nov. 16, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


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.

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

NBA Pick: Thunder +5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


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.

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

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





Friday, Nov. 14, 2014 (0-1, -$110)


Miami Heat at Atlanta Hawks.
Line: Hawks by 4.5.

7:35 PM ET (Game 705-706)

I normally don't like going with publicly backed teams with the Heat, but they seem like the right side tonight. The Hawks, as I mentioned, are overrated following their sweep of the Knicks. Miami won at Dallas recently, so it could easily upset Atlanta tonight.

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

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





Thursday, Nov. 13, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Sacramento Kings at Memphis Grizzlies.
Line: Grizzlies by 6.

8:05 PM ET (Game 503-504)

The Grizzlies have an impressive 7-1 record, but they haven't played very well lately. They've barely squeaked by awful teams like the Thunder and Lakers, and they also lost at Milwaukee. The Kings should be able to hang this number.

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

NBA Pick: Kings +6 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Utah Jazz at Atlanta Hawks.
Line: Hawks by 7.

7:35 PM ET (Game 703-704)

The Hawks just beat up the Knicks twice, so they're a little overrated now. New York is terrible, while Atlanta is good, but not great enough to be favored over a pretty decent Jazz team.

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

NBA Pick: Jazz +7 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014 (0-0-1, $0)


Sacramento Kings at Dallas Mavericks.
Line: Mavericks by 8.

8:35 PM ET (Game 507-508)

This spread is too high. The Mavericks have not been playing good basketball lately, failing to cover three of their previous four. The Kings, meanwhile, are 5-2. They are coming off a loss, but they were battling a desperate Thunder team. Sacramento will perform better tonight.

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

NBA Pick: Kings +8 (1 Unit) -- Push; $0





Monday, Nov. 10, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Atlanta Hawks at New York Knicks.
Line: Hawks by 1.5.

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.

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

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





Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014 (0-1, -$110)


Minnesota Timberwolves at Miami Heat.
Line: Heat by 7.5.

7:35 PM ET (Game 707-708)

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.

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

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





Friday, Nov. 7, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Cleveland Cavaliers at Denver Nuggets.
Line: Cavaliers by 5.

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.

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

NBA Pick: Cavaliers -5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


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.

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

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





Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014 (0-0-1, $0)


Oklahoma City Thunder at Toronto Raptors.
Line: Raptors by 12.

7:35 PM ET (Game 703-704)

This spread is ridiculous. Raptors by 12? They are not that good. Everyone is overreacting to Oklahoma City's loss yesterday, yet the Thunder has beaten the Nuggets and took the Clippers down to the wire without Russell Westbrook.

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

NBA Pick: Thunder +12 (1 Unit) -- Push; $0





Monday, Nov. 3, 2014 (1-0, +$200)


Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Clippers.
Line: Clippers by 9.

10:35 PM ET (Game 511-512)

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.

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

NBA Pick: Jazz +9 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200





Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Sacramento Kings at Los Angeles Clippers.
Line: Clippers by 10.

3:35 PM ET (Game 701-702)

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.

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

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





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


Phoenix Suns at Utah Jazz.
Line: Suns by 2.5.

9:05 PM ET (Game 521-522)

The Suns had a huge victory over the Spurs last night. They now have to travel and battle a desperate Utah team, so I expect the host to play with more intensity.

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

NBA Pick: Jazz +2.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Friday, Oct. 31, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


Cleveland Cavaliers at Chicago Bulls.
Line: Bulls by 3.5.

8:05 PM ET (Game 703-704)

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.

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

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





Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014 (1-0, +$100)


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

NBA Pick: Thunder +13 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100





Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014 (0-1, -$220)


Houston Rockets at Los Angeles Lakers.
Line: Rockets by 7.

10:35 PM ET (Game 505-506)

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.

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

NBA Pick: Lakers +7 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
