The Degenerate Special

Poor performance last night. 1-3 overall, 0-3 ATS. Hopefully I can redeem myself with TNT's doubleheader tonight, but I'm not too confident on either game to be honest. Here's the picks.

Chicago Bulls (-8), vs. Boston Celtics

I was kind of shocked when I saw the Bulls were laying 8 to the Celtics tonight without DR0se. Seems like Vegas is begging people to take the C's and the points tonight, so I guess I'm going to have to put my faith in C.J. Watson. But who the hell knows? Betting the Celtics this season is like playing russian roulette. They took last night off at home against Detroit and lost by 10. They could half-ass it again and lose by 15 tonight against the Bulls, or they could put up a fight and even win. You just don't know what you're going to get with the Celtics this year, so wager carefully on this one or don't bet it at all.

Los Angeles Clippers (-2), at Portland Trailblazers

Another tricky game because the Blazers are inconsistent like the Celtics. Two nights ago, they lost by 15 at the Rose Garden to the Wizards. Last night, they pulled out a tight one at Golden State. I'm going with the Clippers. They got CP3. The Blazers have Ray Felton. That's my logic.

The Degenerate Special

There's like 37 NBA games on tonight, so I'll try to restrain myself from going crazy and betting all 37. Below are the select few I like on this loaded Wednesday evening in February.

Orlando Magic (-155), vs. Philadelphia 76ers

I'm taking the Magic at home in this one even though the Sixers have been one of the most impressive teams in the NBA all season long and they embarrassed the Magic in their lone meeting in late January. The Magic have gotten their shit together since then and have won six of their last eight games.

New Jersey Nets (+3.5), vs. Memphis Grizzlies

The Nets are a pretty shitty team and the Grizz are way more talented. Still, this feels like a game the Nets can steal from the Grizz, who are just 5-9 on the road and seem ripe for a letdown a night after beating Houston by 10.

Oklahoma City Thunder (-3.5), at Houston Rockets

Both teams played last night, with the Thunder destroying the Jazz in Utah and the Rockets losing by 10 in Houston. Houston's tough at home (10-3), but I'm laying the points and taking OKC. The Thunder have been rolling so I'm hopping on that train.

Golden State Warriors (-5), vs. Portland Trailblazers

Not super confident with this pick but I can't in good conscience take Portland after watching them lose by 15 to Washington last night at the Rose Garden. I mean...the fucking Wizards? In Portland? Something ain't right.
