Wednesday Picks 12/22/2010

Utah Jazz -6 (4x)

The Jazz face a Timberwolves team who have lost 14 of 16 in the past month. The Jazz who normally struggle with containing Al Jefferson will no longer have to worry about him due to the fact he is now on Utah's side. Minnesota has struggled defensively all year and will have their hands full facing a Jazz team that's averaging over 100 ppg.

Cleveland State -9 (5x)

The Vikings look to rebound from their first loss of the season last Saturday to a fierce West Virginia squad. Cleveland State is 7-0 at home while South Florida is a miserable 1-4 on the road. With all eyes on Butler to take the Horizon, Cleveland State will not take any game for granted and will cover at home.

Portland U -4.5 (3x)

Charleston PK (2x)

Detroit -1 (3x)

Syracuse -13 (3x)

Tuesday's Picks 12/21/2010

Dallas Mavericks +3.5 (4x)

We like the Mavs in this one over Orlando. Dallas continues on their scenic trip of Florida as they blow through the weaker Eastern conference. Coming off a big win in Miami, we think Dirk and company should cover this spread, if not win outright. Orlando is a mess right now, losers in 7 of their last 8, and have completely changed their team around. Whether the trades were for better or worse, we don't see them coming together this quickly and beating one of the best teams in the league. Not to mention the Mavs are 9-1 on the road, take Big D.

Kansas State -3.5 (4x)

UNLV hasn't really been tested, and Kansas State has played a lot of tough teams despite getting routed in their last game against Florida. This is a neutral site but basically a home game for the Wildcats as it is being played in Kansas City, a long way from Sin City.

USC +8 (3x)

USC has been playing really good basketball lately, losing by just 2 points to number 3 Kansas. Tennessee has lost 2 straight to opponents much less talented. Look for USC to come in tonight and keep this game close.

Oakland -9 (3x)

Oakland is taking on Valpo at home tonight. They are a big favorite and we think they will win and cover this spread. Keith Benson is a beast down low for the Golden Grizzlies, and look for him to be golden tonight against Valpo.

Los Angeles Lakers -7.5 1st Half (3x)

The Lakers are on a 5 game winning streak and hold a 10-2 record. With Brandon Jennings, Delfino and Salmons all out, the Lakers should be able to get off to a quick start and build a comfortable lead by halftime. The Bucks have lost 8 of 11 and will continue their struggles tonight at the Staples Center.

Los Angeles Lakers -12 (4x)

See above.

Chicago Bulls -5 (5x)

The Bulls will look to get back on track tonight against a 76ers team who is just 3-10 on the road. Before a surprising loss against the Clippers, the Bulls road a 7 game winning streak which included wins over the Lakers and Thunder. Chicago has dominated at home all year. With Rose and Boozer both playing at a high level, the Bulls are a safe bet.

Southern Miss +2.5 (NCAAF) (4x)

North Carolina -11 1st Half (3x)

Monday's Picks 12/20/2010

A couple of picks today. Elon is going against the Dukies where they are a huge underdog. They have played well in the first half against other ACC opponents and we think it will be within 19 at the break. The Bears are going against Minnesota and the game will be played at UM's stadium. Look for the Vikings to struggle in the outdoor setting because they are a bunch of little girls (aside from AP who is a monster). They are also starting 3rd string QB Joe Webb (who?) so the Bears defense will just load the box and have a field day when Webb is forced into a passing down. This game is over before it starts. Bears win big.

Elon +19 First Half (3x)

Chicago Bears -7 (5x)

Portland Trailblazers -3 (4x)

Los Angeles Clippers -4.5 (3x)

Detroit PK (4x)

Fresno St +1.5 (4x) (NCAA Football)

Fresno State is coming off a big win vs Illinois. No. Illinois lost the mac championship to Miami OH. Take the points and roll with Fresno St.

Cleveland State +10.5 (3x)

Cincinnati -7.5 (3x)
