NBA Free Expert Picks Dec 12-18Josh Bailey
It is never too early to get the NBA gambling money working out there for us, and I am bringing out these NBA Free Picks of the Week until we break every online sportsbook out there. Wait a minute, let’s just start with the goal of making some cash betting NBA basketball and we can get ambitious from there. YEAH! I LIKE IT!
NBA Free Expert Picks Dec 12th-18th
New York Knicks (14-10) at Golden State Warriors (21-4)
When: Thursday, Dec. 15 at 10:30 pm ET
Where: ORACLE Arena – Oakland, CA
Analysis: Golden State actually came close to losing 2 games in a row after getting pounded by the Memphis Grizzlies. They went on a frenzied 26-6 run vs Minnesota Sunday night after starting the 4th quarter down 10 points, but I guess we shouldn’t be surprised since they haven’t lost 2 in a row since April of 2015.
Draymond Green is coming around after starting off missing most of his 3 point shots in the first game and was a big part of the comeback win. Kevin Durant is killing it everywhere since joining Golden State and leads the team in most of the categories so far which has to be scary for other teams.
The Knicks got Derrick Rose back Sunday and he immediately made a difference scoring 25 points to fuel their 118-112 victory over the Lakers at Staple Center. That gave New York their 6th win out of last 7 games and gave Lakers 6 losses in a row, but they’re going to Oakland.
The Warriors are finally going home after 4 away games in 5 days, and you can bet they will be happy, fed and ready to WOWOWOW the home crowd covering a big NBA betting line versus the Knicks.
Pick: Golden State Warriors
Dallas Mavericks (5-18) at Utah Jazz (15-10)
When: Friday, Dec. 16 at 10:30 pm ET
Where: Vivint Smart Home Arena – Salt Lake City, UT
Analysis: Dallas is coming in here slow rolling into the season so far and every game too. They realize it, but it is definitely not looking like a cohesive unit yet.
Harrison Barnes is doing most of the work and scoring along with Wesley Matthews and they still don’t have some starters playing like Dirk Nowitzki, J.J. Barea (reserve guard) and center Andrew Bogut with a right knee issue.
The Mavericks aren’t what they will be in a month or even 2 weeks, so we need to be smart on our NBA Bet Picks. The Jazz’s Rudy Gobert is en fuego even with Gordon Hayward back, so I think the Best Free NBA bet is Utah for know. Dallas if 4-8-0 against the betting spread away this year also, so…
Pick: Utah Jazz
Houston Rockets (17-7) at Minnesota Timberwolves (6-18)
When: Saturday, Dec. 17 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: Target Center – Minneapolis, MN
Analysis: The Rockets seem to be kicking it in super gear to start the game and they cruise from there it kind of appears. They average 31.5 points in the 1st quarter, and James Harden seems to be on some kind of records pace!
Damn, Saturday night in Dallas, Harden dropped 13 points and 7 assists in the 1st quarter if that gives you an idea. You have to like the way Harden is thinking too when he says, “We’re getting better but we’re still not where we want to be.” I think these guys are going to just wreck a lot of teams starting with Minnesota Saturday night.
Pick: Houston Rockets
