Pet project for WFDevTeam. No contest at the moment just a place to track your picks daily and perhaps we'll add more tools to break down a game and share any intersting information WFDevTeam can glean from the picks entered, random ESPN statistics, etc.
Spreads will be updated througout the day. For the purposes of this pick tracker the spread may move on you. Will work on trying to a) make them better and b) present spread movement in some capacity.
WFDevTeam actually picks every game but will only make a select few picks his official picks. Those are what will be listed below. You can follow WFDevTeam on Twitter. @wfdevteam
What can I say I may be being a bit stubborn here. I expected Denver to surge once they got Millsap back instead they have floundered. But surely at some point they should be able to play at the level they were before...right? Chicago is the right sort of team for them to figure it out against.
Arguably so should have been Memphis but Denver has been coping without Gary Harris, their leading scorer. That should give anybody pause on taking Denver, but i think they can still figure something out against a CHI team that is showing some life down the stretch but not much.
I like IND here. Its been awhile since the Pelicans have beaten a good team, since 3/6 as Boston is banged up now, so not counting that one. Not saying the Pelicans are frauds but they may be getting a bit overrated here while IND having dropped two to TOR and WAS may be getting underrated.
I wouldn't be so bold as to make this official but seeing as New Orleans is the most popular pick of the day, don't mind making this an official contrarian pick of sorts.
SA, another team that looks like it has turned on the proverbial switch. But you have to throw the win against GS out the window. GS was resting its entire team...I mean 75 points for GS...is all you need to know about how much that team was trying. So SA turning it around is based on Wins over NOR and MIN. Still impressive but not enough to convince me that WAS isn't an equal team. They only lost by 2 to SA back on 12/02..thats a long time ago...I submit WAS is a better team today than that team...yes I subscribe to the notion that the Beal Lead Bullets are better than the Wall Whining Wizards.
