Last nights card we saw the OKC Thunder come back from behind to beat the Brooklyn Nets, still not covering the spread.
We also saw the Celtics blew a big lead in the 3rd letting up 31 points opposed to 21 for the Celts. Only to lose to the Los Angeles Lakers.
We have 2 picks today focusing on the shorter spreads
Pelicans +2.0 at the Charlotte Hornets
Pelicans come in 7-3 past 10 games. I love Anthony Davis in this one along with boogie. Kemba Walker will not go down easy as I expect it to be a back and forth, but I see the big men taking over in this one.
DeMarcus Cousins is also coming off an incredible past few performances. Grabbing 2 double-doubles the past 3 games and a triple-double most recently in their OT win against the Bulls.
Sixers -5.5 against the Chicago Bulls
The Sixers have been proving the process actually works.
The Bulls are a good team despite their overall record. They are fueled to the brim with young talent in order to restart that roster in Chicago.
Coming off a deflating OT loss to the Pelicans, I feel like the Bulls will play hard, but the Sixers are too talented anchored down by Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Embiid has gotten a double-double in 4 out of the last 5 games.
If there are points to be taken off, take them off here.
