Picks against the spread analysis for Thursday, October 31st.
2-11 -1 YTD: 4-12-1.
LOCK IT UP:
PICK: Bulls cover
Backdoor push for the Bobcats Wednesday night and our locks are 0-2. And this one isn't exactly rock solid. The Knicks are an awfully good team and eight is an awful lot here. But the Bulls are at home, for Derrick Rose's return, and the Knicks are on a back to back. Call it a soft lock.
DANGER WILL ROBINSON, DANGER
Surely the Clipppers get right, right? Surely the Warriors can't win on a road back to back, right? Surely 6.5 is a safe enough line, right?
The Warriors annihilated the same team that embarrassed the Clippers Tuesday. The Warriors have more cohesion in their roster and more confidence. They don't feel like they can miss right now.
The Clippers going 0-2 would be a huge story. But really, after Tuesday, do they seem like a team we can trust to cover against the hottest shooting team on the planet?
