Kings vs. Suns NBA Pick from John Martin: October 23rd 2017

Sacramento Kings vs. Phoenix Suns
NBA Pick: Suns -1 (October 23rd 2017)

I always like backing teams in their first game after making a coaching change.  The Suns fired Earl Watson as he simply wasn’t getting the job done.  Associate head coach Jay Triano is taking over for Watson as the interim head coach.  Triano spent parts of four seasons (2008-11) as head coach of the Toronto Raptors. He is in his second season with the Suns after spending four years as an assistant with the Portland Trail Blazers, one when Watson was a player there.  Now they’re up against a team that is just as bad as they are in the Sacramento Kings.  The Suns have the better talent and chemistry, and for one night, should respond to the coaching change.  Give me Phoenix.

NBA Pick: Larry Ness betting the Milwaukee Bucks -6.5 points on October 23rd 2017

Charlotte Hornets vs. Milwaukee Bucks
NBA Betting Pick: Milwaukee -6.5 (October 23rd 2017)

The Bucks have opened 2-1 (lost 116-97 at home to Cleveland on Friday) but no one has come close to stopping Giannis Antetokounmpo. He has scored at least 34 points in each of his first three games and put up a career-high 44 on 17-of-23 shooting in Saturday’s 113-110 win over Portland. The Charlotte Hornets are the next team to try their hand at slowing down the “Greek Freak,” when they visit the Bradley Center on Monday. Charlotte has opened 1-1, rallying from 20 points down to top the Hawks 109-91 on Friday night, after losing 102-90 at Detroit last Wednesday to the Pistons.

The Hornets utilized a 24-0 run in the third quarter in that Friday win over the Hawks, overcoming a second straight sloppy effort that featured 15 first-half turnovers. Kemba Walker scored 26 points and after becoming an All Star last season, has begun the new year averaging 25.0-5.0-6.0. The Hornets acquired Dwight Howar in the off-season and the 13-year veteran is averaging a double-double (15.0 points & 15.0 rebounds) through the first two games but there is still a bit of an adjustment period both for Howard and his teammates. Cody Zeller was the starting center last season but has been moved to a reserve role behind Howard. He missed Friday’s win (knee) and will probably be on the bench at Milwaukee. However, the Hornets are hoping that forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist can make his season debut after he was away from the team following the death of his grandmother.

“This is just the beginning,” the 22-year-old Antetokounmpo told reporters. “I’m not done yet. We’ve got 79 more games plus playoffs, hopefully. It’s just the beginning.” Antetokounmpo is averaging 38.3-9.7-5.0 and has connected on 67.2 percent from the floor! Macolm Brogdon got more and more “PT” last year as the season wore on and with Embiid limited to 31 games, ‘stole’ the ROY award. He’s the team’s starting PG coming into this season and has opened averaging 16.0 PPG and 3.7 APG. Charlotte has had Milwaukee’s number recently, winning 11 of the last 14 meetings but has dropped two in a row to the Bucks. This is now the “Antetokounmpo Era” and the Bucks should have little trouble at home against teams like the Hornets. Lay the points.

Ravens vs. Vikings Week 7 NFL Betting Prediction from Scott Spreitzer: October 22nd 2017

Baltimore Ravens vs. Minnesota Vikings
Week 7 NFL Prediction: Vikings -5 (October 22nd 2017)

I’m recommending a play on the Minnesota Vikings minus the points on Sunday.  The Baltimore offense is an absolute disaster.  They’re completely one-dimensional, unable to pass the football with any kind of consistent success. The only mode of transportation that has worked at all this season has been the ground game, but they’re running into the 3rd stingiest run defense in the NFL.  Last week was so bad, not only did they gain just 291 total yards, but the Ravens’ offense didn’t score a single TD.

Defensively, the Ravens are one of the three worst teams against the run and we expect the Vikings’ offense, ranked 12th in both the run and pass, to be able to distance themselves from Baltimore throughout the course of the contest.  The Vikings are on a 20-6 ATS run at home and we’ll lay the points on Sunday. Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.
