Celtics vs. 76ers NBA Betting Odds & Pick from Jimmy Boyd: February 5th 2014

Jimmy Boyd - NBA PickBoston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers
NBA Pick: Boston Celtics -2 -110 odds (February 5th 2014)

I like the favorite in a matchup featuring two of the leagues worst teams. Boston is coming into this game following a confidence boosting win over the Orlando Magic. The Celtics are up against a 76ers team that has lost three consecutive games, and six of their last seven. Philadelphia’s defense has been bad all season, but it has been absolutely horrible in their last five games. The 76ers are yielding 112.8 points per game to their opponents over their past five games.

Boston comes into this matchup with an equally poor record, but they have been playing better basketball recently. The Celtics have surrendered a mere 91.6 points per game to division opponents this season, and they are allowing 96.8 points per game over their last five games. Philadelphia is 10 games below .500 against the spread when playing at home, while Boston is two games above .500 against the spread when playing on the road. Boston’s struggling offense should get a big boost in production when facing the league’s worst scoring defense tonight.

Lakers vs. Cavaliers NBA Betting Odds & Pick from Scott Spreitzer: February 5th 2014

Spreitzer - NBA PickLos Angeles Lakers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
NBA Pick: Cleveland -6.5 -110 odds (February 5th 2014)

I’m recommending a play on the Cavaliers, minus the points over the Lakers on Wednesday. Cleveland has been “no great shakes,” but at least there are signs of life and the same cannot easily be said about the L.A. Lakers. When your starting five includes Steve Blake, the aging and oft-injured Steve Nash, Ryan Kelly, Jodie Meeks, and Robert Sacre, you have some major issues. The starting-five scored a grand total of 27 points for L.A., and yes Wesley Johnson and Nick Young saw a lot of time off the bench last night, but you get the picture. The Lakers were crushed on the glass and turned the ball over 16 times in last night’s loss in Minneapolis. Los Angeles has now lost seven straight games, giving up over 108 ppg. A contest against the Lakers should prove “just what the doctor ordered” for the Cavaliers. Besides the injuries to Kobe and Pau Gasol, Jodie Meeks is questionable after injuring his ankle last night, while Jordan Hill is questionable suffering from headaches, and Steve Nash is not expected to play as he eases back into game shape. The depth-shy Lakers already struggle on the road against uptempo teams, those that average at least 83 shots per game, covering just 9 of the last 31 in this spot. More of the same. I’m recommending a play on the Cavaliers, minus the points on Wednesday. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
