We smashed the bookie yet again on Wednesday with two more of our winning NBA picks and if you have been following along over the last three days, we are a perfect 7-0! Let’s ride this momentum out with two more valuable plays!

Celtics vs. Wizards

The Wizards blew it again after the first quarter in Game 2. They dropped 42 points on the C’s in the first quarter of that one, only to be outscored by 13 points in the final three-quarters. The Celtics clawed their way back to force overtime and a smooth 53 points from Isaiah Thomas helped seal the deal.

However, here in Game 3, the Washington, DC crowd should be rowdy tonight. The DC area is in a sports lull right now because of the Capitals once again failing to live up to the hype in the playoffs. I could see the Phone Booth rocking this evening because of this and all in all the over looks like another good play in this one.

The pace of this series has been high, but we somewhat expected that. The biggest surprise has been the Wizards’ shot selection and subsequent choking. Through the start of both games of this series, the Wizards have started the game getting into the paint and beating the C’s where they are at their weakest.

However, once the fourth quarter, or evening the latter parts of the third quarter hit, the Wizards have fallen in love with jump shots. In Game 2, Washington shot only four of their 19 fourth-quarter shot attempts in the paint.

At home and with their backs against the wall, I see John Wall and company backing their way away from that wall and putting up a big game offensively. I doubt Boston will be able to slow them down and as long as they don’t forget about beating up the C’s in the restricted area, this one has the over written all over it once again.

Jazz vs. Warriors

The Jazz should be happy they made it this far and much like teams of the past that have played the Warriors in the playoffs, they should be happy if they win just one game. However, they one game will not come tonight.

While the Jazz were able to make the final score of Game 1 looks respectable, the game itself was pretty lopsided. The Jazz defense, which was lauded in the regular season, gave up 58 first half points and the Warriors shot nearly 49% from the floor in Game 1.

While this series will shift back to Utah after tonight and it could have some different outcomes, I am going with another teaser here to inch out every bit of value we can from these lines.

After cashing the first half spread in game 1, a teaser tonight with the Warriors at -7 ½ and the over at 199 ½ is a fine value for your NBA Picks.
