It’s mega day in the NBA this evening as 28 of the leagues 30 teams are in action. I have identified three games that I find a lot of value in, so let’s jump right in and see if I can continue my recent success.


NBA Picks of the day
 

NBA Season Record: 112-84-4

Celtics vs. Pacer 

Boston played a nice game against the Sixers last night in Philadelphia, getting the win and the cover. Boston dropped 109 points on Philadelphia, but tonight they will face a whole different animal. The Pacers are one of the league’s best defensive teams, and they are favored heavily against the Celtics coming off of the back to back. The NBA Odds sit at -9, with a total of 184 

I’m staying away from the spread in this one, instead focusing on the total. The under has cashed between these two in four of their last five meetings and the only one this season as well. Plus, the under has cashed in six of their last nine meetings on the road. Boston playing last night will affect their offense, especially going against a team that doesn’t score that well, but holds their opponents to less than 90 points per game. Plus, the Celtics are slightly on the plus side on cashing the under on the 2nd game of a back to back. Take the under.

Free NBA Pick: UNDER 184

Bucks vs. Clippers

Milwaukee takes their show to Staples Center tonight, as one of the top teams in the Western Conference welcomes them to LA. The Clippers are favored in this one by -9 ½, but instead of focusing on the spread, I’m going with the total in this one. Milwaukee has improved their overall scoring this season after their trade and coaching change. Since the beginning of January, the Bucks have given up 102 points per game, and scored around 100 per. LA also scored 111 against the Bucks earlier in the season.

This one is a no brainer, and is one of my favorite picks of the evening. The over is the way to go this evening. I’m not worried about the Clippers’ “Defense.” Besides, LA has cashed the over in 18 of their 30 home games this season. Milwaukee’s guards will give LA trouble this evening, and I think we are in for a high scoring affair.

Free NBA Pick: OVER 203 ½

Kings vs. Warriors

One of the highest totals of the evening is the Kings and Warriors. Sacramento played last night. As it stands now, both of these teams can score, but neither can play an ounce of defense.

These two played one of the highest scoring games of the season back in December, where the Kings won 131-127. I’m seeing another big scoring game tonight, making 221 look a lot less scary. Plus on the second night of a back to back, the Kings are going to give up even more points than their 105 average. I’m all over the over once again for my NBA Picks.

Free NBA Pick: OVER 221
