NBA Daily Picks: Wistful Wednesday
Daily NBA picks against the spread including Bobcats-Magic, Clippers-Celtics, Thunder-Grizzlies, Mavericks-Warriors.
Tuesday: 5-3 YTD: 141-111-6
LOCK IT UP
Charlotte's playing really well right now, especially at home, and the Magic have been a disaster. The Bobcats have defenders to contain the perimeter attack from Orlando on the wing and the strength inside to control the glass.
DANGER WILL ROBINSON, DANGER
FAVORITE: Warriors (-5.5)
PICK: STAY AWAY
Dallas just lost to Sacramento and can't defend. The Warriors just lost to the Bobcats and can't defend. Dallas has come out of mini-slumps with big wins, and just took out Portland last week. Golden State in Roaracle is explosive but is also 3-4-1 against the spread. Nope, no thank you, pass.
Hey, Good Lookin'
OKC is on a back to back, I know, but Memphis is so beat up right now and OKC has been so consistently good the past two weeks. You just gotta think that Memphis doesn't have the firepower to stay within six. It's not a lock, but it looks pretty good.
I've Got a Bad Feeling About This
The Clippers have no wings left after all their injuries and the Celtics have a surprisingly strong perimeter set. They play fundamentally sound basketball, which messes with the Clippers' approach. They hustle constantly, which futzes with what the Clippers do on the road. Boston's on a back to back. But they're at home. But the Clippers had a rest day. But Boston's going to be pissed about losing to Brooklyn.
This game is boobytrapped. Take another path, traveler.
