Tim's Past Picks
ALL

NBA | Brooklyn 109 @ Portland 107 | 11/18 | 3:00 AM UTC

Portland -2.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: This is more about betting against Brooklyn. The Nets are coming off losses to the Lakers without LeBron James and a 32-point blowout to the Kings. And Brooklyn is catching just a few points here. I think Portland (11-3 against-the-spread) should be closer to a double-figure favorite. I'm on the Blazers.

+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 NBA PICKS

CBB | Gardner-Webb 66 @ N. Carolina 72 | 11/16 | 1:00 AM UTC

N. Carolina -21.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: UNC is already 0-2 ATS so far this year but, in my mind, the Tar Heels are by far the best team in college hoops. Look for them to show it Tuesday night and cover against Gardner Webb.

CBB | Kentucky 77 @ Michigan St. 86 | 11/16 | 12:00 AM UTC

UNDER 141.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Michigan State gave Gonzaga all it could handle despite shooting 3-for-16 from 3 point range. They Spartans are going to have their struggles scoring without a legit go-to scorer. Kentucky’s defense has been outstanding in two wins, surrendering a combined 115 points. Throw in an NBA arena for this neutral-site affair, and this will likely be a low-scoring game. Take the Under.

NBA | New Orleans 117 @ L.A. Lakers 120 | 11/03 | 2:30 AM UTC

L.A. Lakers +3

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Pelicans have been in Los Angeles way too long ... almost an entire week. That’s too much time in the sun! The Lakers just got their first win against Denver. Russell Westbrook has found a home off the bench and watch LeBron James be fired up to take on Zion Williamson. Take the points.

+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 NBA PICKS
+80 3-2 IN LAST 5 NO ATS PICKS
+340 10-6-2 IN LAST 18 LAL ATS PICKS

NBA | Utah 100 @ Dallas 103 | 11/03 | 12:30 AM UTC

Utah +6.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: Utah beat Memphis in back-to-back games and the Grizzlies were without without Ja Morant for one. The Jazz are sneaky good because you forget a guy like Colin Sexton averaged 20 a game in Cleveland and he comes off the bench.. Luka Doncic has to have score 50 for the Mavericks to cover.

+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 NBA PICKS
+340 10-6 IN LAST 16 DAL ATS PICKS
+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 UTA ATS PICKS
