Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 7.


The more desperate team continues to win each game in this series. The more desperate team tonight is the Celtics because they lost Kendrick Perkins. Speaking of which, I found it unbelivably ridiculous that everyone on Around the Horn, particularly Bill Plaschke opined that Boston had "no chance" because Perkins is out. Excuse me? When did Perkins become the second coming of Bill Russell? He's been solid inside, but he's not nearly as important as Rajon Rondo or Paul Pierce. If either of them were out, Boston wouldn't have a chance.

The Celtics could easily win this game. They've beaten the Lakers in three of their previous four matchups. They won Game 2 in Los Angeles. Why can't they win Game 7? And don't tell me because of Los Angeles' experience, because neither Phil Jackson nor Kobe Bryant has ever coached/played in an NBA Finals Game 7.

I think the Lakers win tonight, but it should be a close one. Seven points is way too much for these evenly matched teams.


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







Tuesday, June 15, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 6.5.


The more desperate team has won every game in this series. The Lakers fit that description now. With about 65 percent of the money on Boston, I'm taking the host to force a Game 7.


NBA Pick: Lakers -6.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200

Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics
Line: Celtics by 3.


I'm pretty confident the Lakers are going to win the next two games. They didn't try too hard in Game 4, but they know they have to win this one.


NBA Pick: Lakers +3 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Thursday, June 10, 2010 (1-0, +$50)


Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics
Line: Celtics by 3.5.


I like the Lakers to win Game 5 no matter what happens here, but I'm not really sure who wins tonight. What I can do is look at history. In the two situations I mentioned Tuesday where the Lakers split their first two home games and won Game 3, they lost their next contest by 12 and 19 points. Having said that, the Lakers are the better team and could easily win this one.


NBA Pick: Celtics -3.5 (0.5 Units) -- Correct; +$50




Tuesday, June 8, 2010 (1-0, +$100)


Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics
Line: Celtics by 2.5.


I know a fixed game when I see one, and Game 2 of the Lakers-Celtics final was unquestionably fixed. Kobe Bryant sits on the bench for the entire third quarter, and every single call in the fourth quarter goes Boston's way? More than 70 percent of the action in Vegas was on the Lakers moneyline, so someone paid the officials a good amount of cash to make sure Boston won. David Stern should be embarrassed.

The only way the Celtics win this one is if this game is rigged as well. If everything's clean, the Lakers should triumph. It's worth noting that the Lakers are 2-0 the past two times they split two contests at home and then had to go on the road for Game 3.


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




Sunday, June 6, 2010 (0-1, -$110)


Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 6.


Pretty much the same analysis... Kobe Bryant's covering Rajon Rondo; Ron Artest is shutting down Paul Pierce; and Pau Gasol is debacling Kevin Garnett. I don't see how the Celtics can score in the 90s.


NBA Pick: Lakers -6 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110




Thursday, June 3, 2010 (1-0, +$50)


Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 5.5.


Not sure how this series is going to play out, but I do have concerns about Boston's offense. I don't know how they're going to score. With Kobe Bryant on Rajon Rondo and Ron Artest on Paul Pierce, the Celtics may struggle to get into the 90s.


NBA Pick: Lakers -5.5 (0.5 Units) -- Correct; +$50




Saturday, May 29, 2010 (1-0, +$50)


Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns
Line: Suns by 2.


I really don't like the way the Suns closed out Game 5. Their comeback was amazing, but they lost at the very last second and now have to be emotionally drained because they should have won on Thursday. I don't know if they'll be able to muster the same energy tonight.


NBA Pick: Lakers +2 (0.5 Units) -- Correct; +$50

Orlando Magic at Boston Celtics
Line: Celtics by 3.5.


Thanks for blowing that 18-point lead, Lakers. I'm getting slaughtered in these conference finals games.

It seems like the Magic have regained all the momentum in this series. I think they'll pull off the improbable.


NBA Pick: Magic +3.5 (0.5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$55




Thursday, May 27, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 7.5.


I thought the Lakers would win a game in Phoenix, but I was wrong. This seems like it's a classic home-court domination series. I think Phil Jackson will solve the Les Suns' zone.


NBA Pick: Lakers -7.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Wednesday, May 26, 2010


Boston Celtics at Orlando Magic
Line: Magic by 3.5.


After the Celtics blew the Magic out in Game 3, they didn't take Orlando seriously on Monday night. They're still the better team.


NBA Pick: Celtics +3.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Tuesday, May 25, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns
Line: Lakers by 1.5.


I can't believe the Magic won last night. Where did that come from? Anyway, I figured the Lakers would win one of these two games in Phoenix.


NBA Pick: Lakers -1.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Monday, May 24, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Orlando Magic at Boston Celtics

Wow, this line is really high compared to the Game 3 number. But I still like Boston - Orlando looks done to me.


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




Sunday, May 23, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns
Line: Suns by 2.5.


The Les Suns MAY win one of these games in Phoenix, but I think there's a better chance the Lakers sweep. They're just the much better team, and Phoenix simply can't do anything defensively against them.


NBA Pick: Lakers +2.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Saturday, May 22, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Orlando Magic at Boston Celtics
Line: Celtics by 3.5.


Orlando absolutely had to have Game 2, yet it came up short. This is just a situation where one team matches up really well against the other.


NBA Pick: Celtics -3.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Wednesday, May 19, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 7.


I can't believe the Magic would just bulldoze through the first two rounds without any sort of challenge and just fall flat on their face like this. Game 2 was much more telling than Game 1; last night was a must-win and they couldn't come through. It looks like Boston will sweep this series.

I was wrong about the Les Suns as well. Maybe their sweep of San Antonio was a mirage.


NBA Pick: Lakers -7 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Tuesday, May 18, 2010 (0-1, -$330)


Boston Celtics at Orlando Magic
Line: Magic by 7.


I feel really strongly about this game. Everyone just watched Boston dominate for three quarters. On Around the Horn, Michael Smith insulted Dwight Howard. On PTI, Michael Wilbon predicted that Boston would win this contest. In Vegas, 80 percent of the action is on the Celtics. Yet, despite all of this, Orlando is favored by more in this contest than it was in Game 1. I can't see this being anything but a Magic blowout.


NBA Pick: Magic -7 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330




Monday, May 17, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 6.


I feel like Phoenix's sweep over San Antonio was more impressive than the Lakers' sweep over the Jazz. The Lakers always beat Utah; but Phoenix was finally able to overcome San Antonio. I think the Les Suns take one in Los Angeles.


NBA Pick: Suns +6 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Sunday, May 16, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Boston Celtics at Orlando Magic
Line: Magic by 6.5.


I don't know if the Celtics are a good team. They beat a terrible Heat squad and then managed to knock off Zombie LeBron. The Magic, meanwhile, are 14-0 straight up and 13-1 against the spread since April 4. In their past 31 games, Orlando is 28-3 straight up (wow) and 23-7-1 against the spread. The Magic have continuously been undervalued in this postseason.


NBA Pick: Magic -6.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Thursday, May 13, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics
Line: Celtics by 1.5.


Great call by Matt, who joked that like in the movie Celtic Pride LeBron James must have been drugged by two Celtics fans before Game 5, which would explain his poor play. I just can't see LeBron laying down two games in a row. With everyone calling him a paper MVP, he now has a lot to prove. I say Cleveland wins in Boston tonight.


NBA Pick: Cavaliers +1.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Tuesday, May 11, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers
Line: Cavaliers by 7.5.


This lazy Cavs team plays only when they want to play - as we all saw in the huge disparity in effort between Games 2 and 3. Coming off a loss, they should be motivated.


NBA Pick: Cavaliers -7.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Monday, May 10, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Orlando Magic at Atlanta Hawks
Line: Magic by 5.5.


It's tough to close a team out on the road, but the Hawks are done. Winning this series will mean beating the Magic four times in a row, including twice in Orlando, where they've lost by double digits in every meeting there this year. I think Atlanta will put up a fight early on, but will ultimately lose by 9-12 points.


NBA Pick: Magic -5.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Sunday, May 9, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics
Line: Cavaliers by 2.


I've really grown to dislike this Cavs team. They only play hard when they want to, and coming off a huge win in Boston, I don't think we'll get maximum effort from them in Game 4. With about 80 percent of the action on Cleveland, let's go with the Celtics.


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




Saturday, May 8, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Orlando Magic at Atlanta Hawks
Line: Magic by 2.5.


The Magic have beaten the Hawks in a blowout and in a close game. I don't think Atlanta's going to put together a single win this series; the talent disparity is just too great.


NBA Pick: Magic -2.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Friday, May 7, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Phoenix Suns at San Antonio Spurs
Line: Spurs by 6.5.


The Le Suns or La Suns, or whatever they call themselves now, are fat and happy, up 2-0 in this series. This is desperation time for the Spurs. If they lose this game, the series is over.


NBA Pick: Spurs -6.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Thursday, May 6, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Atlanta Hawks at Orlando Magic
Line: Magic by 9.5.


When the Hawks were losing by 40-plus in the second half, the players and coaches on the bench didn't seem pissed. Instead, they hung their heads, stared at the floor and looked completely defeated. They know they can't beat the Magic. I say this series is already over.


NBA Pick: Magic -9.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Wednesday, May 5, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


San Antonio Spurs at Phoenix Suns
Line: Suns by 3.


I went into this series thinking the Spurs were going to win one of these two games in Phoenix, but wanted to see what happened on Monday. I still say San Antonio wins one.

Tuesday, May 4, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 5.5.


The Lakers led by double digits for most of Sunday's game, but fell apart in the fourth quarter. They were still able to beat the Jazz at home, as they always do. I'll be surprised if they don't win Game 2.


NBA Pick: Lakers -5.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Monday, May 3, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers
Line: Cavaliers by 6.


The Cavs won and covered Game 1, but are favored by a point less than they were two days ago? How does that make any sense? The betting action is even, so it's not like there's any trickery going on here.


NBA Pick: Cavaliers -6 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220




Sunday, May 2, 2010 (0-1, -$220)


Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Lakers
Line: Lakers by 7.


The Jazz have a mental block with the Lakers. They've played them twice in the postseason the past two years, and here's how much they lost by each time they visited L.A.: 13, 10, 11, 11, 10 and 7.


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




Saturday, May 1, 2010 (1-0, +$200)

The only concern here is LeBron's elbow. If he's OK, the Cavs win this series in four or five.


NBA Pick: Cavaliers -7 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Friday, April 30, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Denver Nuggets at Utah Jazz
Line: Jazz by 6.


In a desperation Game 5, the Nuggets weren't able to separate from the Jazz until really late. With that in mind, I can't see Denver winning this game; Utah is much better at home and knows what it has to win this game to prevent a Game 7 in Denver.


NBA Pick: Jazz -6 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Thursday, April 29, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Dallas Mavericks at San Antonio Spurs
Line: Spurs by 4.5.


I was wrong about this series from the beginning; Dallas had dominated this rivalry going into the playoffs, but the Spurs apparently made the proper adjustments to finally beat their in-state nemesis. The two games in San Antonio haven't been close despite what the scores say, so I like the Spurs to close this series out here.

By the way, I discovered two cool trends today. The last 21 times the Spurs lost by 20 or more and then played a game at home, they're 16-5 ATS. This year, the Spurs are 7-3 ATS at home following a road loss.


NBA Pick: Spurs -4.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Wednesday, April 28, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Utah Jazz at Denver Nuggets
Line: Nuggets by 7.


Though the Jazz won Game 2, they're historically not very good on the road in the playoffs. Denver is in desperation mode here; I think they win this game before going down in six.


NBA Pick: Nuggets -7 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Tuesday, April 27, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Chicago Bulls at Cleveland Cavaliers
Line: Cavaliers by 12.5.


This may surprise you because I've been taking the Cavaliers this entire series, but I like the Bulls tonight. On two occasions in LeBron James' career has he been up 3-1 in a series with a fifth game at home. He's 0-2 against the spread in those Game 5 situations. Chicago has nothing to lose right now, and closing a team out is always a difficult task.

Orlando Magic at Charlotte Bobcats

Boston Celtics at Miami Heat
Line: Heat by 4.


How did the Cavs lose to the Bulls? How embarrassing. Maybe that'll be the wake-up call they need.

Minnesota Timberwolves at San Antonio Spurs
Line: Spurs by 14.


This is Minnesota's final game of the season. Not literally, but their next contest against Detroit doesn't mean anything. The Timberwolves hate the Spurs with a passion, so this is their Super Bowl. They really want to beat San Antonio. The Spurs, meanwhile, are a really tired team (fifth game in seven days), and are coming off a very big win at Denver. I don't think they'll be anywhere near 100 percent against this motivated Minnesota squad.

The Spurs have been winning all of these games and everyone is talking about them as the No. 2 team in the West. Yet, they're big underdogs at Phoenix with lots of money being bet on them. Publicly backed underdogs don't cover often. I like the Suns a lot here - I feel like they have something to prove.

Detroit Pistons at Philadelphia 76ers

Toronto Raptors at Charlotte Bobcats
Line: Bobcats by 8.5.


Call me a glutton for punishment, but I'm going against the Raptors again despite last night's debaclation. I don't feel like they can come back 100 percent off such an emotional loss to Miami. Why would they take Charlotte seriously?

Friday, March 19, 2010 (1-1, -$130)


Philadelphia 76ers at New York Knicks
Line: Knicks by 2.5.

Monday, March 15, 2010 (1-0, +$200)


Washington Bullets at Utah Jazz

Houston Rockets at Washington Bullets
Line: Rockets by 4.


I guess I'm in love with the Rockets (even after they blew an 8-point lead in the fourth quarter to Detroit), but I'm taking them here again. Washington just suffered a very emotional defeat to the Celtics, and I can't see them getting up for Houston.


NBA Pick: Rockets -4 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300



Philadelphia 76ers at Indiana Pacers
Line: Pick.


The stupid Sixers actually think that winning these meaningless games is going to accomplish something. Idiots. Instead of doing the right thing and tanking for John Wall, they're going to miss out on yet another blue-chip prospect, ensuring another five years of mediocrity and empty seats. Nice job. I think Philly will win this contest because the Pacers just had an emotional loss at Phoenix.

Milwaukee Bucks at New Jersey Nets
