T-Wolves at Spurs 10/18/17 - NBA Picks & Predictions

by Adam

Latest Odds : SA -1 Total 205.5

The Minnesota Timberwolves (0 - 0, 0 - 0 Away) are opening up their season on the road with a game against the San Antonio Spurs (0 - 0, 0 - 0 Away). Minnesota underwent one of the most dramatic roster change-ups in the entire NBA this off season. San Antonio just resigned LaMarcus Aldridge to a huge deal and they'll be anxious to see the star forward go out and earn it. San Antonio will be hosting this game at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, tx.

Minnesota has potentially one of the deepest rosters in the NBA right now thanks in large part to their star-studded starting five. Jimmy Butler comes over from Chicago to add an elite defensive wing to an already stacked line up. Minnesota also dealt starting guard Ricky Rubio in order to give time to newcomer Jeff Teague. Last year Minnesota was 13th in the NBA in scoring and 18th in points allowed. We expect both of those rankings to go up this year.


San Antonio is a team that is always prepared. The Spurs were 7th in the NBA in assists last year and 2nd in points allowed. San Antonio will once again be among the best teams in the NBA thanks to their defense and coaching. San Antonio will follow Kawhi Leonard if the star forward is able to take the court to start the season.


Recent Betting Trends:
Timberwolves are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games playing on 3 or more days rest.
Spurs are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference.
Over is 8-3 in Timberwolves last 11 road games.
Over is 16-5 in Spurs last 21 overall.


Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves +1


Love all the moves that Minnesota made in the off season - add that with the injuries to Spurs Leonard and Parker and San Antonio goes down in opener. Coach Popovich magic keeps this close thru first three quarters but the injuries catch up to San Antonio late. Final Score Prediction, Minnesota wins and covers ATS 101-96.

Nuggets at Jazz 10/18/17 - NBA Picks & Predictions

by Mike

Latest Odds : UTAH -1.5 Total 206

The Denver Nuggets (0 - 0, 0 - 0 Away) are opening up the NBA season on the road against one of the toughest teams in the Western Conference, the Utah Jazz (0 - 0, 0 - 0 Away). Utah comes into this year looking to maintain last season's momentum despite losing star forward Gordon Hayward. Denver has been on the rise over the last couple of years and new star Nikola Jokic will try to lead the charge. Utah will be hosting this game at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, UT.

Last year the Denver Nuggets were among the league leaders in points scored and rebounding. Leading the way was Nikola Jokic, the big center who has probably the best passing skills out of his position in the NBA. Denver averaged 112 PPG last year while dominating the boards and the passing lanes. Denver matches up well against Utah's defensive-first team.


The Utah Jazz last season turned into one of the biggest surprises out of the Northwest. The rise of Rudy Gobert into superstar defensive force helped to catapult Utah up the rankings. Utah is the best defensive team in the NBA, or they were last season, and the Jazz will try to maintain that mark. Utah will struggle, however, to contain all of Denver's numerous scoring options. Utah will lean on newcomer Ricky Rubio to orchestrate a more efficient offense.


Recent Betting Trends:
Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games.
Jazz are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win.
Under is 5-0 in Nuggets last 5 overall.
Over is 5-2 in Jazz last 7 home games.

Free Betting Pick: Denver Nuggets +1.5


This young Nuggets team turns the corner this season and it starts early in first game. Jazz losing their young superstar Heyard in free agency makes this franchise take a step back this season. Denver can score with the best of them but it's the attention to defense that is difference in this one. Final Score Prediction, Denver Nuggets win outright as underdog 107-100.

Hawks at Mavericks 10/18/17 - NBA Picks & Predictions

by Adam

Latest Odds : DAL -6.5 Total 198

The Atlanta Hawks (0 - 0, 0 - 0 Away) are on the road to open their year with a game against the home town Dallas Mavericks (0 - 0, 0 - 0 Home). Atlanta is in the first season of what is a true, from the ground up, rebuild. Dallas has never conceded defeat before and we don't expect them to try and rebuild this year either. Dallas will be hosting at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX.

Last year the Atlanta Hawks proved that their format wasn't working and now the Hawks are ready to completely rebuild from the ground up. Last season Atlanta was ranked 22nd in the NBA in points scored and 10th in points allowed. Atlanta will look to young guys like Dennis Schroder and Taurean Prince to lead the rebuild on what should be one of the worst young teams in the NBA.


The Dallas Mavericks struggled to score last season and their inability to rebound made things even worse. Dallas has another year with Dirk Nowitzki so you know Coach Carlisle will try to make it worth it for the Hall of Fame stretch forward. Dallas made sure to retain Nerlens Noel for another year and he'll be an important force in the drive to improve the interior game for Dallas. Dallas doesn't have much scoring talent in their roster so this could be a slow paced game for both teams.

Recent Betting Trends:
Hawks are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 3 or more days rest.
Mavericks are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Under is 14-6-1 in Hawks last 21 games following a ATS loss.
Under is 13-4-1 in Mavericks last 18 vs. Eastern Conference.


Free Betting Pick: Atlanta Hawks +6.5


Two teams in full on rebuilding mode and can't see laying this many points with either of these teams. Dallas might still have their hall of fame forward Dirk Notwizki but with limited minutes and aging body - he won't be enough to win by more than few points. Final Score Prediction, Dallas Mavericks win but fall short ATS 97-95

Pelicans at Grizzlies 10/18/17 - NBA Picks & Predictions

by Mike

Latest Odds : MEM -3.5 Total 204

The Memphis Grizzlies beat the New Orleans Pelicans 142-101 last week, but that was the preseason. It will be for real this week when they open the regular season against each other in Memphis.

New Orleans brought DeMacus Cousins to the team late last year, and it will be interesting to see how he and Anthony Davis team up as twin towers. Those two should give New Orleans an intimidating presence inside, and it could open up the outside as teams try to contain the two big guys.


Memphis has also had some changes for this year that they hope will make them more competitive. Wayne Selden was added to the team late last year and played against his former team, the Pelicans in his first start for Memphis last year. Selden has since worked himself into a starting role. While a lot of teams made major changes, the Grizzlies changed more with role players. New players like Selden, Ben McLemore and rookie Ivan Rabb will determine how far Memphis goes this year.

These teams were 2-2 against each other last year. New Orleans won the last two meetings after Cousins was added to the team.

Memphis has made the playoffs eight straight seasons, but prognosticators are predicting they may not make it this year. The Grizzlies are in a period of change as some faces are changing. The Pelicans seem to be on an upward trend with some interesting trades and new players on the team this year.


Recent Betting Trends:
Pelicans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.
Grizzlies are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
Under is 6-2 in Pelicans last 8 vs. NBA Southwest.
Over is 3-0-1 in Grizzlies last 4 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.


Free Betting Pick: New Orleans Pelicans +3.5


The aging Grizzlies have started to rebuild their roster but still think Memphis is not athletic enough to deal with young talented teams like New Orleans. Pelicans just need to stay healthy and will show why with big road win to start season. Final Score Prediction, New Orleans Pelicans win outright as underdog 103-100.

Heat at Magic 10/18/17 - NBA Picks & Predictions

by Jim

Latest Odds : MIA -3 Total 205.5

Miami may be without Dwayne Wade, but many view the Heat as a team that could still return to the playoffs under the guidance of head coach Erik Spoelstra. He's put together some good teams in the post-LeBron James era in Miami and has a growing reputation as one of the best tacticians in the NBA.

Veteran point guard Goran Dragic quietly had an impressive scoring season last year. For the first time since the 13-14 season in Phoenix, he averaged better than 20 points per game at 20.3. He also dished out 5.8 assists per game and had a field goal percentage of .475.

The Heat drafted a first-round project in center Bam Adebayo. The 20 year old out of Kentucky has great raw skills and size. He's gone for 13 and 15 points in the last two preseason games and could join Hassan Whiteside to form one of the deepest center rotations in the NBA.


Orlando was terrible down the stretch last season en route to just 29 wins. The reward was draft pick Jonathan Isaac, a forward out of Florida State. He's been averaging around 20 minutes per game in the preseason and shouldn't be expected to play a huge role right away.

Center and 7-footer Nikola Vucevic out of Switzerland averaged a double-double last season with 14.6 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. Without a lot of offensive support in Orlando, it was his weakest NBA season in terms of field goal percentage.


Recent Betting Trends:
Heat are 14-2 ATS in their last 16 Wednesday games.
Magic are 12-26-1 ATS in their last 39 home games.
Over is 4-1 in Heat last 5 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
Over is 3-1-1 in Magic last 5 games following a ATS loss.


Free Betting Pick: Miami Heat -3


Last year when healthy this Miami team was very good and think Heat pick up right where they left off. Heat biggest key in off-season was keeping Dion Waiters as free agent and he will prove why in big opening night. Magic are just no match for talented Heat team - Final Score Prediction, Miami Heat win and cover ATS 105-96.

76ers at Wizards 10/18/17 - NBA Picks & Predictions

by Eddie

Latest Odds : WAS -7 Total 215.5

In the first game of a Wednesday night NBA doubleheader on ESPN, the Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards will open up their season from the Verizon Center. After years of asking fans to trust the process, Philadelphia might be ready to become a playoff contender. For that to happen, talented C Joel Embiid and F Ben Simmons to play more than the 31 combined games that they appeared in a year ago.

Philadelphia selected G Markelle Fultz with the number one overall pick in the NBA Draft and is expected to come off the bench in this contest. Sharpshooter J.J. Redick was brought in to improve an offense that ranked last in the NBA in efficiency last year.


The Washington Wizards won 49 games last season and won the NBA Southeast Division title for the first time in almost 40 years. Head coach Scott Brooks brings back the young, talented core of John Wall, Bradley Beal, and Otto Porter Jr. The Wizards fell in Game seven of the Conference Semifinals versus Boston last year and figure to make another deep run in this postseason.

Washington counts on 33-year old center Martin Gortat to anchor the middle and F Markieff Morris rounds out the starting five. The Wizards’ biggest move in the offseason was signing John Wall to an extension and matching Brooklyn’s offer sheet to Otto Porter Jr.


Recent Betting Trends:
Philadelphia is 13-4 ATS in its last 17 games on the road.
Washington is 11-3 SU in its last 14 games when playing Philadelphia.
Washington is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games when playing at home against Philadelphia.
The total has gone OVER in 8 of Philadelphia's last 9 games.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Washington's last 8 games.


Free Betting Pick: Washington Wizards -7


Philadelphia C Joel Embiid (ankle) will be on a minutes restriction early in the season and expects to play about 16 minutes against Washington. The 76ers finished last season as one of the best covering teams in the league and will be as the season progresses. However, I expect the Wizards to flex their muscle and cover on opening night. Final Score Prediction, Washington Wizards win and cover ATS 112-99.

Hornets at Pistons 10/18/17 - NBA Picks & Predictions

by Eddie

Latest Odds : DET -3.5 Total 204

The NBA regular season will tip-off for the Charlotte Hornets and Detroit Pistons when they meet at the brand new Little Caesars Arena on Wednesday night. The Hornets expected to be a playoff team last year, but several key injuries caused them to fade down the stretch and miss the postseason. Charlotte’s roster depth was exposed and the team was just 3-17 during the 20 games missed by big man Cody Zeller.

All-Star G Kemba Walker averaged 23.2 ppg and 5 apg last season and is the unquestioned leader of the Hornets. Charlotte traded for enigmatic big man Dwight Howard and he will be counted on to be a double-double machine.


The Detroit Pistons finished eight games below .500 overall and missed the playoffs for Head Coach Stan Van Gundy. It was a disappointing result for a Detroit team that was expected to take a step forward after reaching the postseason the year before. C Andre Drummond can be a dominant force at times, but remains too inconsistent and a liability at the free throw line.

Detroit PG Reggie Jackson missed the start of last season with an injury and never reached his potential upon his return. Avery Bradley was acquired from the Celtics and will provide the Pistons with a top-level two way player.


Recent Betting Trends:
Brooklyn is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 games on the road.
Indiana is 8-1-1 ATS in its last 10 games.
Indiana is 6-1 SU in its last 7 games when playing at home against Brooklyn.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Brooklyn's last 8 games when playing on the road against Indiana.
The total has gone OVER in 13 of Indiana's last 18 games.


Free Betting Pick: Detroit Pistons -3.5


Charlotte F Nicolas Batum (elbow) will be out until Thanksgiving and F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) will miss this contest. It will be interesting to see how these two squads come out of the gates after disappointing season. On opening night, I like Detroit to win and cover in their new downtown arena. Final Score Prediction, Detroit Pistons win and cover ATS 105-97.
