The Dragon

Galin specializes in the NBA and NFL. He's currently wrecking the books as one of SportsLine's top NBA experts, after going 27-19 (59 percent) last NFL season. Galin started in the industry covering DFS for a number of outlets, including Rotoworld, DailyRoto, and numberFire. From the beginning, he realized one must first predict the outcome of the game before determining how success trickles down to individual players, so he spent more time studying team outcomes than projecting individual players. When it comes to predictions, Galin trusts numbers above all else. Having graduated from the University of Florida with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Physics, Galin uses his strong analytical background every time he makes a pick.

Tomas Satoransky won't keep shooting this hot forever, and the second night of a back-to-back is a good spot for regression. The Wizards got a big win last night, but have to face off against a Hornets team that is still dreaming for a playoff spot. Take the points.

LOSS
Thu 2/15

The Lakers are playing on a road back-to-back with their team struggling and quite injured. The Wolves are healthy and fighting for playoff positioning in the tough West. Minnesota will try to dominate and come better prepared. Lay the large number.

LOSS
Thu 2/15

Denver has gone through a somewhat tough part of its schedule and the Nuggets haven't been good on the road this season. A visit to the Bucks right before the break will find them complacent. Look for them to drop this one. Lay the points.

Wed 2/14

The Raptors continue to demolish everyone. They play great on both sides of the ball and their second unit is crushing opponents. Zach LaVine will shoot Chicago out of this game, and Kris Dunn is only playing 20 minutes so he won't get enough playing time to keep Chicago in this one. Lay the points.

Wed 2/14

The Magic are in full tank mode, pulling off a masterful loss to Chicago on Monday. Charlotte, on the other hand, is in a stretch that will define whether or not they stay in the playoff race post the All-Star break. They need this win badly. Lay the points.
