Brooklyn 119 @ Washington 118 | 01/20 | 12:00 AM UTC

Washington -1

LOSS

ANALYSIS: I think the Wizards should trade Bradley Beal now. His value is high and they aren't really contenders. That being said, they have been one of the best stories in the NBA and would be a playoff team if the postseason started today. The Nets are wildly inconsistent, and if you’re betting against them this season, you’re killing it. Washington will roll in DC.

+80 3-2 IN LAST 5 NBA PICKS

Illinois St. 63 @ Missouri St. 88 | 01/20 | 1:00 AM UTC

Missouri St. -10

WIN

ANALYSIS: Yes, I am the voice of "The Valley," so I know a thing or two about the best under-the-radar league in America. I’m calling the Missouri State-Loyola (Chi) game for CBS on Saturday. I’ll say this - if both teams get into the NCAA Tournament, they each will win a game or two. Missouri State's Isiaih Mosley is a scoring machine. He had 43 points in a game against Northern Iowa recently. The Bears are tough at home. Lay the points.

Memphis 127 @ L.A. Lakers 119 | 01/10 | 2:30 AM UTC

L.A. Lakers -4.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: This is a no bet if Ja Morant (thigh) plays for Memphis. The Lakers won the last meeting in LA and it has taken some heroic performances by Morant versus LA recently that led to Memphis wins. The Lakers have been playing with more continuity as of late, they are at home and they win this game by five or more. In LeBron I trust!

+240 9-6-2 IN LAST 17 LAL ATS PICKS
+470 8-3-1 IN LAST 12 MEM ATS PICKS

Philadelphia 102 @ Sacramento 94 | 11/23 | 3:00 AM UTC

Philadelphia +2.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The 76ers are trying to weather a long storm without Joel Embiid. I called their win at Denver for NBA TV. I am really impressed that when they focus, they can be an elite defensive team. The Kings, in my eyes, are easy to guard. Don’t give Buddy Hield any room and back off De’Aaron Fox. Look for Philadelphia to get the win.

+80 3-2 IN LAST 5 NBA PICKS
+290 4-1 IN LAST 5 PHI ATS PICKS

Houston 89 @ Oklahoma City 101 | 11/18 | 1:00 AM UTC

Oklahoma City -3

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Thunder are competitive this year and already have two wins over the Lakers. This is really just targeting the worst team in the NBA, the Houston Rockets. They have many glaring weaknesses and you know this a game OKC circles as a win. It sounds unusual to say, but lay the points with the Thunder on Wednesday.
