NBA Picks: Bet on the Lakers, Trailblazers and Clippers on March 10th 2013

NBA Picks: March 10th 2013

NBA Pick: Los Angeles Lakers -5.5
Sunday’s FREE WINNER is the Lakers over the Bulls. The Lakers have some nice success shooting the ball from deep, behind Steve Nash and Steve Blake, both 42% 3 ball shooters, which could open things up for Dwight Howard on the inside, if he decides to show up and play. And Joakim Noah will make him earn anything he gets, for Chicago. What the Bulls lack in scoring, they make up for in amazing defense, when they shut down the Lakers to only 83 last time they played, I am sure Kobe remembers that as well. Over the last several weeks, the Lakers have been putting up some big numbers on the scoreboard and it will interesting to see if Chicago can slow them down some. Both teams with a load on the line, Chicago battling for the 4th seed in the playoffs jockey, and the Lakers, are knocking on the door, to get their purple and gold foot in the door at the 8th seed. Chicago plays well on the road; they are a very well rounded team, but they have been playing tired. I expect the Lakers to win by double digits here. -Tony Karpinski

NBA Pick: Portland Trailblazers -2.5
The Blazers are playing some quality basketball. They have won four of their last six and are coming off a huge 136-106 win over the Spurs. Their recent play has led to a perfect 7-0 ATS run. The Hornets, on the other hand, are struggling. They have lost eight of their last 10 both SU and ATS and will face the difficult task of playing without a day of rest. You might think Portland’s big win over San Antonio places it in a letdown situation. However, the Blazers were completely embarrassed 99-63 in New Orleans last month. Losses that bad aren’t forgotten, and I expect Portland to be very motivated here as a result. The Hornets are a soft 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games when playing without a day of rest. They are also unreliable 8-18 ATS the last two seasons in games when the line is +3 to -3. New Orleans is only 11-20 on its home floor, and it is 4-12 ATS this season in home games after playing a road game. They have lost by an average score of 94.1 to 89.5 in this spot. Lay the points. -Dave Price

NBA Pick: Los Angeles Clippers -14
The Clippers have had two days to rest up and prepare. That doesn’t bode well for Detroit. The Clipps are 9-1 ATS this season when playing on two days’ rest. They have won by an average of 16.1 points in this situation. This is a lot of points to lay, but the Pistons are a lousy 1-12 ATS as a double-digit underdog the last two seasons. They have lost these games by an average of 19.6 points. In addition, Detroit is 0-8 ATS the last two seasons in road games versus good teams that outscore their opponents by an average of 6.0 points per game or more. It has lost to these teams by an average of 21.8 points. -Jeff Alexander
