Monday Pro Hoops Play: Memphis Grizzlies at +4 at home vs. the Los Angeles Lakers. - 2/7

Super Bowl Sunday NBA: Olando Magic +4. - 2/5

Saturday Point Spread Prediction: Detroit Pistons at +5.5 vs. the Milwaukee Bucks. - 2/5

Friday’s Top Play: Phoenix Suns at +2 at home vs. the Thunder. - 2/4

Thursday’s Play: Milwaukee Bucks at +6.5 vs. Golden State. - 2/3

Wednesday: We scoured tonight’s card high and low but were unable to find any value so we’re passing. - 2/2

Tuesday Pro Basketball Pick: Houston Rockets +9 - 2/1

Big Men Hurting: The New Orleans Hornets will be missing Omeka Okafor will be sidelined for a couple weeks with a strained oblique muscle. Orlando Magic F Brandon Bass will miss time with a sprained ankle. It looked ugly, so he could be out for awhile. - 2/1

Wednesday Selection: Minnesota T-Wolves at +5.5. - 1/26

Tuesday Play: We like the Wiz at home vs. Denver. Washington is a horrible road team, but actually plays pretty good ball at home. Conversely, the Nuggets don’t do well on the road. Washington has a legit shot to win this game straight up. - 1/25

Monday NBA Hoops Pick: We like the Magic at -12 today. Detroit’s offense has been anemic lately and the Magic appear to be catching fire. Expect a blowout tonight. - 1/24

Sunday: Only one game on today’s card, passing. - 1/23

Saturday NBA Basketball Play: Orlando Magic -3. - 1/22

Friday NBA Pick: We like the Detroit Pistons at +2. Good luck! - 1/21

Bobcat Sidelined: Charlotte F Tyrus Thomas will miss the next 2 months with a tear in his meniscus. - 1/21

Thursday NBA Selection: We’re on the Clippers at +3.5 against the Blazers tonight. The Clips are actually playing some decent ball lately. The Blazers had to travel last night (which is an underrated variable when handicapping games) and while they’ve been winning some games lately, those wins have come vs. some of the weakest teams in the NBA. The likely result here is a close game with the Blazers winning the game straight up but the Clippers covering and getting the money. - 1/20

Wednesday NBA Play: We’re taking the 76ers at +9.5 vs. the Orlando Magic for MULTIPLE UNITS. We’re putting a half unit on the Sixers on the moneyline at +425 as we feel that they’re a live dog in this spot. Good luck! - 1/19

Wednesday NBA News and Notes: The Blazers continue to be plagued with injuries. This time it’s C Marcus Camby, who will miss 4-5 weeks after having surgery on his meniscus. The NJ Nets have reportedly dropped out of trade talks for Carmelo Anthony. Jazz PG Deron Williams is expected to play tonight despite having a stomach flue. - 1/19

Tuesday: We’re passing today. There’s only 2 games on the card and we couldn’t find any value on either the sides or totals. - 1/18

Monday NBA Pick: We like the Minnesota Timberwolves at +7.5 to cover on the road at Portland. - 1/17

Friday Play: Milwuakee Bucks at +4.5 to cover on the road at Philly. - 1/14

Brandon Roy Update: The All Star had surgery on both knees and will likely miss at least 6 weeks. He’s got major meniscus issues and one has to wonder if he’ll ever been an effective NBA player again. Roy, who is only 26 years of age, is said to have such a bad meniscus problem that he’s almost bone to bone. - 1/13
