After my first post, I started off with a 2-2-1 record. While not a terrible start, I’d like to do much better than 50% tonight. Here are a few more basketball picks for tonight.
Marist +7.5 @ Siena
Despite a poor record, starting guards, Khallid Hart and T.J.Curry, are back from injury. Siena leading scorer, Rob Poole, has been out for the past two games due to an ankle injury. Siena coach, Jimmy Patsos, said that he may make a return tonight, but expect his playing time, if any, to be very limited.
Manhattan +4 @ Quinnipiac
Manhattan (8-9) vs. Quinnipiac (10-8). Manhattan is 17-6 ATS over the last three years when playing against winning teams during the second half of the season. Quinnipiac is 1-5 ATS this year when playing against losing teams. Manhattan is 5-0-1 ATS L6 games after failing to cover. Manhattan is 4-1-1 ATS L6 games after a SU loss.
Under Point Total – Los Angeles Lakers @ San Antonio Spurs
With Kobe out for probably the rest of the season and the Lakers posting an average of 89.3 points L6 games, expect a low scoring game.
Chicago Bulls +6.5 @ Dallas Mavericks
The Bulls have something to prove in this game as they look to avenge a home loss to the Dallas team. The Bulls are 4-0 ATS away after no rest off a home game. After a solid performance against the Spurs last night, I’ll take the points.
