Happy Friday. We’re rolling, folks. Texas A&M let us down because nothing can be perfect, but I had a 4-0 NBA night to give us a very good day overall. Don’t look now, but I’m fifteen games above .500 on NBA ATS picks now. Let’s keep it going by finding some winners for tonight.


NBA record: 193-178-8 ATS (21-38 Underdog ML), 13-16-1 O/U, 5-8 parlay, 0-2 props

  • Pacers +15

This is a massive line, especially with the Celtics having lost two in a row. It’s possible they cover, but Boston really isn’t having the week you’d want to see from a team getting 15 points. I like Indiana to keep it at least a little bit closer.

  • Bucks -3.5

The Bucks are rolling, and they can tie the Heat at the top of the East with a win in this one. They did play an OT game last night, but so did the Clippers. It’ll be a little easier for the Bucks to bounce back too; they won theirs. They’ve charged all the way back to push the Heat at the top, and they won’t let this one slip.

  • Thunder +5

The Pistons have been solid basketball lately, but they haven’t been getting a whole lot of wins to show for it. One of those wins came last night against the Sixers, and giving them 5 points on the second night of a back-to-back just feels like a lot. I like OKC to cover.

  • Pelicans -1.5

The Lakers played last night and were never competitive against the Jazz. They’re likely bringing back their big hitters off the injury list for this one, but it doesn’t matter. This team has done nothing all year to suggest they can consistently win games, especially the ones that matter. The Pelicans are better, and they take a massive step towards locking up some playoff security tonight.

  • Timberwolves +125

I think this one is worth a shot. The Timberwolves have been scuffling lately, and, at three games back of Denver, this is their last chance to keep any hopes of escaping the play-in alive. They should come out playing really hard in this one, and there’s a decent chance they get it done. I like them at +125.

CBB record: 373-396-7 ATS (60-78 Underdog ML), 12-43 parlay

Conference Tournament record: 43-43-2 ATS (7-17 Underdog ML)

NCAA Tournament record: 17-21 ATS (3-8 Underdog ML)

NIT record: 8-8 ATS (2-3 Underdog ML)
